Heidi Klein: Covent Garden Pop-Up
On really grey and drizzly days in London,
I'm often prone to do the same little loop around the neighborhood.
...and then to the kids charity shop up the street
in hopes that a millionaire has just emptied out
their well-heeled toddler's dresser drawers.
And at that point,
when my hair has officially reached "terrible" status
and my ballet flats are wet through to my feet,
I typically head to Heidi Klein
for a quick trip to somewhere warm
and to indulge myself in denial of the weather.
The smell of their coconut candles
and the warm beachy feel transports me
to a happy (and warm) place...
plus, the owner Heidi Gosman is so kind and cute.
As I paw the swimsuits dangling on hangers
and wish that I hadn't bloated my stomach
with the previously mentioned pastry
so that I might be able to stomach watching myself try one on.
Heidi Klein is currently giving Central London
a little bit of their exotic goodness
with the new pop-up shop in Covent Garden
running through the first weeks of July.
Go in and get a slice of paradise in London's West End.
(Also, one of their cute beach totes is free with all purchases over £200!)
