Pellicci’s, a family run Cafe on Bethnal Green Road which has been passed down the family for generations, has just restored my faith in London, good quality cheap eats and humanity (serious). I went a few years back but I don’t think I quite realised it’s true charm. The constant chit chat between the Pellicci’s and the punters (a mix of locals that have probably been going there all their lives and yes, 1 or 2 hipsters in sight but it’s not too overrun by the little rascals…). The place is buzzing. It’s cosy in size so you can’t help but get involved in the banter. The beautiful, original art deco wood paneling adds to the feeling that you’ve just stepped back in time to a prettier and friendlier place). Saying that the Pellicci’s are friendly is actually a massive understatement. Being there just puts a huge smile on your chevy chase (getting down with the lingo innit!). Seriously, I feel like I’ve just been hugged. You may think I’m waxing lyrical about this place but if you’ve been you will know what I mean. If you haven’t, believe me if you ever need cheering up, go and have a cup of tea (70p) and one of the biggest, full and tastiest ham (very good quality), cheese and tomato toasties you will ever find (£2.50). It was so full it was tricky to eat and kept squirting out the sides! You are sure to leave Pellicci’s Cafe feeling full, happy and reassured that everything will be ok  

I had to steal some photo’s from online as my phone died (typical!) although now I’m glad as I found some really cool oldies… I seem to be flying the flag for East End (proper) cafes this week. I did want to keep this one secret and not mention the name through the fear of over popularising the place. But after a quick google search I realised it’s already pretty famous with celebrity diners including David Shwimmer and Bianca from Eastenders (!). But despite it’s popularity it has managed to maintain a certain charm, which can only be down to the Pellicci’s themselves. This really is one of life’s hidden treasures. As I write this in the internet cafe next door, the cafe has just erupted into a very loud chorus of “Happy Birthday To You” accompanied by banging pots and pans. Brilliant. Love it. Smile just got bigger :)))

No pretensions today… keeping it real in an East End greasy spoon. I forgot quite how tasty a humble ol’ jacket potato with cheese and beans could be. My photo is reminiscent of a Martin Parr wouldn’t you say?! #LivingThedream

I love Lucie Loves… especially in the “Revolutionary Statements Are Overrated” tshirt, my latest collaboration with abstract painter Jem Doulton… who knew you could mix Kelly Shaw with high street retailer Wallis ?! But it seems to work very well indeed Lucie says: “I adore this Jem Doulton for Kelly Shaw tshirt - it is literally a work of art. Jem’s work really reminds me of Cy Twombly - one of my favourite artists! Collaborative pieces are the best!” I agree! And thanks for the Cy Twombly reference Lucie, possible inspiration for AW15! #Collaborate #Abstract #Art #Fashion #JemDoultonPrintshttp://lucieloves.co.uk/post/99758415459/aw14-kelly-shaw-statement-tee-w-collection-leather-skirt
