London's shopping tour

As some of you have requested, here it is a London’s shopping guide :P

Oxford St. and Oxford Circus (including Regent’ St): Where most of well-know shops such as Topshop, American Apparel, Zara and H&M. But there’s a MUST: Primark! For those who don’t know it, it’s pretty cheap though you have to spend some time to find something worthy. However, Primark isn’t in the center of Oxford Circus, so you may want to take the underground to Marble Arch station.

Carnaby St.: If you want to find a brand such as Replay, Guess’, Fornarina and Levis’ that’s where all of them have a store for sure. It’s at a walking distance from Oxford St.

Bond St.: Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Alexander Mcqueen, D&G, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s,...do I need to say more? ;)

But the cool staff here is vintage. There’s no better place for treasure haunting than London!

A part from their so famous flea markets:

Camden Market: Which I would say it’s like a vintage department stores...

Portobello Market: You can find any kind of vintage items, from books, accessories, jewelry and clothes to early XX’s golf sticks (I bought some for my dad :P) and some young unknown designers who try to find themselves a place into the fashion industry starting from the bottom.

Go and see by yourselves that Nothing Hill is full of vintage shops as well.

Spitalfields Market: located on Commercial Street, London’s East End.

However, the best area for vintage shopping is Brick Lane (Aldgate East St. tube station). You’ll find lots of little and not so little shops, though the best known are:

Beyond Retro : On Cheshire Street 110-112 (and another store in 58-59, Great Marlborough Street). It’s said to be the largest vintage clothing shop in London.

Rokit Vintage: On 101 and 107, Brick Lane (and two other stores, one in Candem and another in Covent Garden, check its website).

Absolute Vintage: Located on 15, Hanbury Street. It has been voted one of the world’s top 100 shops worth visiting.

Hope it can help those of you who are lucky to go there soon (I soooooo miss it!!) and enjoy it as much as I did!!:)


P.S. No me olvido del premio de Juliet. Prometo entregarlos en el próximo post!(Se me acumulan los deberes!!:P)

  15. Pues la verdad yo aprecio cada día mas la independencia...ni te imaginas...yo recien salgo de una relación tormentosa...y eso no va conmigo...Es odioso pensar q tienes una obligación en vez de una relación...pero bueno...

    Haré muchísimas fotos...no se yo con el frío cuanto podré enseñar mis looks...lo intentaré...He intentando pensar los outfits para llevarme...no soy capaz...no sabría q escoger...y lo peor nunca miro el pronóstico del tiempo...ni lo miraré...y normalmente voy muy fresquita...lo único es q debería llevar paraguas...y no me acordaré fijo mañana..

    La semana q viene colgaré más ropilla...a ver si en el finde tengo algo de tiempo...
    A la vuelta te visito y me pongo al día con tu blog...q disfrutes estos días...bsitosssss florecilla

  21. Seriously, I am so, so jealous!
    My mom got some of the most kick ass vintage jewelry on Portobello Market last summer...
    Seriously, you are so pretty too :)

    I hated having to use a fake ID in clubs here...I can be such a worrier with things like that and I was always paranoid about being caught! Even though I had a great fake one, having a real one feels soo much better!
