Shops I've enjoyed this week
Next - lots of bows, a great little 'Chanel' esque jacket in. Some well priced shift dresses for work, a little bit nicer than the norm. Some great suede shoe boots, with a workable walking heel!
Selfridges Shoe Rooms - wow! Went before they'd all opened, but a must for all those shoe lovers out there!
Dover Street Market - had to do as keep reading about it. Very high fashion, great to look around for the experience. Not a traditional stall market at all! A 5 storey building with loads of designers each having a little 'pitch' so to speak. Tried on the YSL Tribute sandals (image above) just because I could! Amazing quality, but so couldn't walk in them, don't know how the celebs do it!
Portabello Market - Enjoyed again for the experience. Thank goodness the weather held out for us. Got a little upset by all the people with their so called 'vintage' stalls. Watch out for this, don't get sucked in because it all looks old & musty! Know your stuff! Great day out though, loads of yum fresh food too. Just give yourself a good 3-4 hours to do the lot! Doubles up on similar stalls that Spitalfields Market has. For me, I love Spitalfields that little bit more. Just feels more upmarket that's all.
Swarovski Crystallized is a concept store opposite Liberty's. Great for some one off pieces. Some fun designers like Lulu Guinness and reasonably priced too.
