Widow shopping

Let’s go window shopping in Regent Street. Starting from Piccadilly, move north towards Oxford street. You see many shops with glittering windows. The Regent Street’s lightings are very famous, so I hear, but for the last few years they have been quite modest, in my opinion…
See lots of windows of the shops along the street, surely they lift your spirit up, straight into the mood for the Christmas…
It’s actually a bit of a mixture of romantic and hypocritical emotions – you see all these glitters and glamour, but they are only for those who can afford them, obviously. For someone like me, I just walk passed it, thinking exactly that. Hardly a happy feeling.
Walking towards Oxford street, here is a ray of expensive shops. When you see the gigantic picture of a black baby with colourful baubles on her head at the end of Regent Street, that’s the Benetton shop window, probably many people just walk by even without taking any notice of it. I, on the other hand, exasperated, for no apparent reason but it looked somehow lacking some spirit. Poor baby.
