I’m not even going to make any sort of funny sort of “lol, did you know something was happening in London this month?” comment. Of course you do. We’ve been glued to our TV’s and Twitter to find out the latest news about our amazing athletes, starting with the opening ceremony. (HOW AWESOME WAS THAT. I had to buy the album “Isles of Wonder”* as soon as I could on iTunes, I especially like the second “disc” which is the music the countries walked out to.)
While I haven’t really gone for any of the typical merchandise, the London Love Letters* collection from Oasis did catch my eye. Perhaps its not really about the Olympics, but I really love these detailed line drawings by Lizzie Prestt showing instantly recognisable scenes of London life.
I love the image on thisdress with Big Ben on (£70)* but I know that the shape wouldn’t be very flattering on me.
Unlike this street scene skirt (£50)*! I love this skirt, with the little streets of colour on there.
You can probably spot a bit of a colour theme with this collection with this pink dress with landmarks all over (£80)* – another one that looks like it would be a good shape for me.
I love that the collection isn’t just about clothing with things like this large tote bag with a view towards Tower Bridge (£18)*
These notebooks in white* or pink* (both £10) would be perfect for writing down your favourite London spots
The final coloured item in this collection is this blue scarf with white London landmarks printed on which is £20* – now can you see the colour theme?
Whilst these aren’t available from Oasis (as far as I know), I love the Paperself London skyline* false eyelashes (which are only £9.72 on Amazon – who knew Amazon would sell Paperself lashes*?!)
Oooh, that bag looks like an excellent present for my sister.
I wish the store by me had these, they’re lovely, I particularly like the skirt!

The Big Ben dress had me in stitches what an awesome concept why has no one thought of that before? Great use of the space available awesome find x
Love the skirt and bag – both a bit subtler than the official Team GB t-shirt that Mr Ship-Shape has his eye on…
