London still loves me!

... and I still love London, as I discovered on my yesterday's day trip to this wonderful city. I hadn't been in London for a while and decided to go for a day to visit the British Museum and beautiful historic Liberty department store where I hadn't been to before.

British Museum, of human history and culture, is one of the largest museums in the World featuring around 9 million objects from all continents. It is so big that it's impossible to go through the entire museum in just one day but I tried to see as much possible, the most interesting departments for me being the ones of Egypian, Greek and Roman history.

Also, I had always wanted to pay a visit to Liberty Department Store - one of the most iconic shops in London. Liberty was first opened in 1875 and until now it retains it's incredible character and beauty from back these times. I was blown away by it's amazing interior - all wooden beams & stairs and beautiful furnishings. And of course the products - Liberty is well known by offering items from some of the most exclusive and expensive designers - Alexander McQueen, Sonia Rykiel, Markus Lupfer, Rick Owens, Helmut Lang and Isabel Marant among many others. And I could finally see and touch my favourite item from A/W 2011 collections - Isabel Marant Yoan Intarsia sweater..mmmmm... If I hadn't had a more (money-)sensible family member with me, I would have probably handed over that £385 :-)

Anyway, here are some of the pics from my lovely little day trip:

And the last picture.. Let's just say that I had my Christmas present early this year :-) More of that in my next post:
