Guest Post: Fashion Foie Gras
Today, Tabitha Webb is thrilled to have Emily Johnstone write a guest post
Emily Johnston, AKA the creator of the hugely popular fashion blog Fashion Foie Gras, had a wander down Elizabeth Street recently and discovered some fashion delights, among them the Tabitha Webb boutique! Here is her account of finding this 'goldmine' in Belgravia...
Ugh. So here's the thing.
For those of you that know me, and know me well (yes, you can count yourself if you've been reading FFG from the start), you'll understand that I like to think I know it all. Ok, I can't possibly know it all. But, after living in London for 14 years, I like to think I know just about everything there is to know about shopping.
I've been the go-to girl for years for friends and family visiting who want to know where they should set up camp for super shopping sprees and I've delivered excellent advice for over a decade thus far. Never a complaint has come my way after setting up "spending itineraries."
Only now, I am afraid I have to admit that I don't actually know everything.
This admission comes with a bit of a twist, however, as the "not knowing" has led to a brilliant new discovery - Belgravia's Elizabeth Street.
I've been to Elizabeth Street before - briefly, and wearing blinders, as it would seem. A few years ago I appeared on the street for a quick blow-dry at Blo by Realhair (excellent, by the way). I hopped out of the cab for the blow-dry and quickly hoped in another one after I was finished.
What was I thinking?
The answer is - I wasn't.
If only I had seen the goldmine laid out before me. The treasure trove of shopping delights was just there at my fingertips and I was too concerned with making a meeting on time to lift my head and take a look around.
Lesson learned and that leaves us where we are today.
Last week I set aside a morning to fully explore Elizabeth Street, with the idea of introducing this new discovery to you properly.
Such a dignified area deserves a polite introduction to the masses.
There are dozens of shops on Elizabeth Street, and they are all meant to be explored and enjoyed, from pastry shops to clothing brands with heart.
For this trip to Elizabeth Street, I thought I'd focus in on what we do best here - fashion. Ok, just one thing. Before we kick off officially with the fashion of Elizabeth Street - make sure you start your morning shop with a cake and a coffee at Peggy Porschen (pictured above). This will set you up nicely for the sweet wardrobe treats that follow...
What can I say about Tabitha Webb?
Well, I guess I should start with the most important glowing endorsement: Princess Catherine and Pippa Middleton are massive fans - and with good reason: Tabitha's dresses are one of a kind and all around fantastically flattering.
And Tabitha herself?
Well, I have a new girl crush - that's for sure. This is a designer who bares her soul on her garments. Her personality is every bit as addictive as the pieces hanging on racks in her store.
Visit for: A dress to make you stand out from the crowd. Think Princess glamour.
