The best fashion shopping street in the UK!

Milsom Street in Bath has been voted the best fashion shopping street in the Google Street View Awards!

More than 11,000 people voted over a three-week period last month. Milsom Street beat 20 other shopping areas, including Kings Road in London, which came third.

The shortlist was compiled by Glamour magazine editor Jo Elvin, designer Jeff Banks, boutique owner, Brix Smith-Start, stylist Hannah Sandling and Fashion Editor of the Daily Mirror, Amber Morales.

Hannah Sandling described Milsom Street as: "a style-conscious treasure trove packed with amazing range of beautiful boutiques and designer clobber. I love to shop in Bath."

Alice in Wonderland

No, I'm not talking about Tim Burton's latest release, but the first-ever film adaptation of Lewis Carroll's story, directed in 1903 by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow - watch it here.

It's just been restored by the BFI National Archive, and forms part of a Alice in Wonderland season, running at the Southbank from 11th to 17th March.

The 1903 film ran for 12 minutes (around eight minutes survive) and was closely based on John Tenniel's original illustrations for Carroll's story. I just love the adorable little children marching past the camera, dressed as playing cards!

Surina kimono top

Our Surina silk kimono wrap top is really something special. The dot design is created using the ancient Indian technique called bandhani (the silk is tied with thread before dyeing), and then it takes TWO days to sew on all the sequins by hand!
