Back from London!

Oh my gosh, it's been a really long time. I'm sorry for not posting for 20 days! I've been really busy, and then I went to London for spring break! I have a hunch that some of my readers (you know who you are) are from England, but for the rest of you, here's an update on the current London fashion:
- Tights are big. Everyone is wearing them all over the city. Grey, black, red, blue, purple, green, you name it. All except for white. Girls and women alike wear them with skirts and skirt suits.
- Boots! It's chilly in England this time of year, and in London the temperature has been in the 50-60 range this past week (in degrees F), around 15 or 16 degrees C, which is surprisingly good weather. So the Londoners have been wearing boots (a lot of Uggs and Faux-Uggs!) with tights and with jeans tucked in.

As for shopping in England, well, it's Europe. And in Europe (like Paris or London), the type of shopping that's good is the kind where you intend to spend a lot of money on the latest and greatest designer looks. They have well-updated European designer lines (such as Gucci, Versace, Prada, Burberry), but absolutely no sales. So for you savvy girls who are addicted to discounts and live for good deals, it's not so hot. The U.S. is much better for finding 25% off True Religions.

As for music, the UK's got some good bands (I like The Script), but a lot of the popular songs and artists are American, like Lady Gaga and T.I.

You should really visit the UK sometime if you haven't already. It's great, and the people are really friendly! And the food is much better than they say.
