Westfield’s (Car) Boots Are Made for Walking

Speaking of things I love, let me interrupt your browsing for a moment to tell you about Westfield London. On the most basic level, it is a mall. In actuality, it is a building that took thirteen million man hours to build, a building that has ninety-six escalators, and over 265 shopping destinations. The concierge team alone has seventy members. It is the Ultimate Mall.

Today kicked off Westfield’s Car Boot Sale to celebrate London Fashion Week and the launch of A/W 2010. Lily Allen kicked off proceedings ensconced in cream fur and Chanel pumps, while Mary Portas hosted her own Living and Giving car (her stock is INCREDIBLE). Running until the 26th, over 20 Hyundai i20 cars have been hijacked by London’s most sought after brands with something different on offer every day from giveaways to exclusives to styling advice.

Lavinia is wearing a top by US brand Aeropostale, unknown shoes, and skirt and cardigan both by Topshop. Helena is wearing Zara shorts, an Urban Outfitters top, Primark cardigan, boots from ‘somewhere in Italy’ and socks from Japan.
