I spent almost all morning at the famous Harrods department store. It was great fun. I tried on all kinds of suits and dresses, and even hats. I bought a cocktail dress by Paul & Joe – a beautiful buttercream chiffon dress – it is so elegant! and a couple of nightgowns by Crabtree and Evelyn – their cotton is the softest and the sleepwear is hard to find now as they are converting to mostly skin care and fragrances, at least back in the states they are.
On the way back to the hotel I passed the Burberry store and had to stop. I decided to splurge and buy an authentic Burberry trench coat and cashmere scarf. Love it. Love it Love it. What better souvenir of a London visit than a real Burberry coat?
I have to get ready for Cabby to come pick me up – we are heading out to the manor house to take a look at all the work he’s been doing to fix it up.
