My office has just moved to the city, does anyone know of somewhere (EC2 or thereabouts) to buy fashion magazines? I think the WH Smiths in Liverpool St sometimes has some of the foreign Vogues but I'm looking for somewhere that sells more of the quarterly/biannual magazines.

If you can get out to Clerkenwell, there's Magma bookshop on Clerkenwell Rd, otherwise can't think of anything else in the city. Present on Shoreditch High St has a selection of publications, mostly menswear-related.

Will all the big luxury department stores (Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Harrod's) start their sales on Dec 26th? Or will they have stuff on sale before that?

I feel like I'm always either a few days too early or a few days too late for the sales in London. I'm in London all of next week and don't want to buy things that I know will go on sale two days later :p

Does anyone have any suggestions for good quality vintage shops please? I'm not a huge fan of the big warehouses full of stuff, and don't really ave the time to go through them. I am already planning to visit Rellik, Lucy in Disguise, Blondie and The Girl Can't Help It.

Going to London next week! I'm a fan of a lot of Swedish brands (WHYRED, Acne, etc.)--does anyone have a good recommendation where I could find those things in London? Or even cheap steals? I can't find a store that carries Whyred when I'm googling London...

Does anyone have any good tips for where to shop for affordable dresses suitable for a wedding? Just moved to London a month ago and am only familiar with the mainstream areas like Oxford Circus & Knightsbridge...

if you don't mind consignment (or seaching through racks of clothing) you could try Bang Bang in Soho and Goodge St or Retro Woman in Notting hill.
