Graffiti Art in Brick Lane

Tonight my flatmates and I ventured to the Brick Lane area of London. At first it didn't look like much, but then.. we got to the graffiti; the reason we took the tube 7 stops away. It was so amazing! We even saw an artist in action. I was so inspired by all the colors and detailed work. We couldn't help but bust out our cameras for an impromptu photo shoot! I love the idea of something so taboo becoming artwork in itself.

It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen since I've been here!

Sudden burst of inspiration are so fun! I love all your outfits too - the way you belted a shirt over your dress is genius.

You look gorg. I love the shoes and the belt. Oh, and so do your friends. This is very interesting. I actually saw a lot of this kind of graffiti in Dubai of all places.

Try and find some Banksy if you haven't already, it's amazing. There are buildings graded because his graffiti is on them.

Oh the graffiti is definitely worth a visit. Love Brick Lane! Still think London (and the UK in general) are unbeatable when it comes to vintage shopping. And East London is always buzzing with creativity... can't wait to go back!

on the other side of the thames (the side OXO is on and the tate modern and the like) has some really cool graffiti under some of the bridges and skating and music and whatnot if you haven't been there yet. it's cool to hang out around. this is next level though, it's awesome.
