Brixton sunglasses

As you know, I was browsing around Brixton Market on Saturday so this weekend I have been admiring my new purchases and looking through the pictures I took. Brixton Market is a wonderful mix of Afro-Caribbean shops selling indispensables such as colourful plastic buckets, live GIANT snails and spicy food alongside little vintage and design shops and restaurants set up by young and creative entrepreneurs.

I love patterns and prints (can't you tell?!) and Brixton has loads, as well as bright colours! Though I couldn't find very many vintage frames, which was the main reason I went there (not just the yummy pizza!), so my lazy Sunday readings gave me some inspiration and this is what I came up with (the lovely screen printed wrapping paper is from Brixi, unfortunately I can't remember the name of the designer that made it...)
