My ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ Tribute: Lunch at Harvey Nichols

I am a huge fan of the show Absolutely Fabulous. There have been many champagne filled nights watching this show and wishing that I were half as fantastic as Edina and Patsy, two of the most amazing heroines ever. I’m not sure what this says about my convictions, but I pretty much want to become Patsy Stone. She’s beautiful, hilarious, knows what she wants out of life, and doesn’t care what other people think of her. She is, well, fabulous.

Edina and Patsy

In many ways I already do things to tribute these fine ladies. I drink copious amounts of red wine and champagne, many times I have been silly (a diplomatic way of saying drunk) in public, I do enjoy looking chic, and boy oh boy do I love red lipstick. I am rarely caught without it. Something that Edina and Patsy do quite a lot on the show is visit a department store in London called Harvey Nichols, or “Harvey Nicks” as Edina and Patsy often refer to it. During my trip to London I finally had a chance to visit this department store and it was fantastic. So posh, so delicious, and so out of my price range, but I didn’t care. I was at Harvey Nicks. 

I was however finally able to do something that I have wanted to do ever since I started watching Absolutely Fabulous and that was have lunch there. For Edina and Patsy, I had lunch at Harvey Nichols.

Just thought I’d share some of our photos in the city with you guys from the trip. It’s rare that all three of us get to go on an international trip together, after all!

We did Tourism with a Capital ‘T’!
