wear this there: london's canova hall / sfgirlbybay

we’re popping back across the pond again when everything opens back up, to a city i miss very much! we’re headed to london, and specifically to brixton’s new pub canova hall, which once was originally the canteen for employees of Le Bon Marché department store which opened it’s doors way back when in 1877. one of the things i love about london is its old-world charm and canova hall has all that and more. the barcelona-based design firm red deer have kept the historic bits, old subway tiles, and aged patina and given this space a whole new life. and since it’s the holidays we’re getting gussied up to try out their gin masterclass — fancy a cocktail, anyone? i never get to dress up anymore, so tonight it’s a lacey stiched turtleneck and matching midi skirt, some dainty metallic ballerina shoes, and a cozy but feminine wrap to keep us warm. i couldn’t resist a bit of bling, so i’ve added some shiny earrings, stacked rings, and a fantastic clutch. i suggest taking along Not For Tourists’ Guide to London 2020 — their guides will take you to all the local spots off london’s well worn beaten path!

  1. You are so good at this! I always look forward to “Wear This There”, but this one is particularly beautiful. The textures and colors of the cafe are superbly translated to the sentiments in the clothing.
    Thank you and stay well

  2. I have to say, I love everything about this restaurant’s interior, esp. the grand horse shoe bar and that room with the floor to ceiling window walls. But every time I see the booths, I just can’t. I feel they look ugly with the pipes and the loose hanging curtains — they evoke surgical and ER curtains in a World War I hospital. Very jarring. Everything else is gorgeous.
    Thank you, Victoria, for always pulling up some very interesting imagery.

  3. so funny, I was scrolling through your blog aimlessly looking at pictures and thought “hmm that looks familiar.” canova hall was just down the street from me! I lived in brixton for 2 years and just moved back to the states. it’s really very adorable and usually quite crowded on weekends. they have a sister pub across the street, and I highly recommend checking out salon or franzina trattoria for dinner in brixton or italo for breakfast in vauxhall if they’re open.
    thanks for the trip down memory lane!
