Old Truman Brewery

Lately I feel like I’ve been properly plugged in. I’ve been super content. Not ecstatic, but just happy.

I think I’ve got a little groove going with work and I’m just so in love with my job and The Old Truman Brewery. I mean, look at these pics – how could you not love the OTB?

Frieda by Tatty D

WANT. NEED. LOVE.

Frieda Kahlo by Tatty Devine.

Funnily enough having lived in Bethnal Green for two years I never went up the part of Brick Lane where Tatty Devine have their store. It is a sweet little shop filled with jazzy treats. I really recommend you pop by – 236 Brick Lane, London, E2 7EB (and it’s just been reopened after a face lift – oo!)

Then I realised that I had a deadline (midnight to be precise) for Company’s High Street Edit competition. They were asking for writers to enter the competition by writing a 750-800 word comment piece on ‘Queuing for Fashion’ and I had a few things left to tweak. So I pulled my laptop out and started editing.

I really hope I didn’t come across as a pretentious Mac-lover workaholic stressnut! Oh and while we’re on the topic: big shout out to helper #1 Siobhan (future sub-editor extraordinaire!) and helper #2 Joe from Stonehenge. I couldn’t have finished it without you guys. (And apologies for the glut of brackets littering this blog post……)

Here, the finished piece.
