I've been to many Euro cities and my favorite shopping city is definetly London.and if you are a vintage lover you'll love london shopping.I shopped from Harrords,Selfriedges,old spitalfields market and vintage shops around old spitalfields market and brick lane.I also love oxford street and top shop there.also many independent small shops you come across while you are walking around and due to best designer graduates there are so many emerging new designers.I've been there twice for shopping in last 6 months and I want to go again and again

While you are in London visit the boutique Layers, they carry many different designers visit for more information.
My friend described it as avant garde, even if you dont buy anything its a pleasure just looking at the pieces.

^Yes, I agree. Love that store. Very, very nice staff, too. They have such a good selection of brands. I love that they carry Nicolas Andréas Taralis and Aguri Sagimori.

My tips for London shopping/fash browsing:


Dover St. Market
Kokon to Zai
Harvey Nicols
Liberty of London


Get lost in and around Dalston/Hoxton/Shoreditch and find quirky independent shops and markets. London has a great tradition of pop-up shops. Visit West London and discover Notting Hill, and if you can, Portobello Market. Visit the flagship's in Mayfair and Chelsea. Granted, they will make you feel poor but London is expensive. Personally, I'd avoid Carnaby Street unless all you want is a photograph. It's full of chain clothes shops on the whole. Anything you see there you can buy much cheaper online.

If you're new to London, avoid Angus Steak Houses like the plague, but do visit a Nando's and Wagamama if you want refuelling on a budget. Go to a gastropub (of which there are thousands) and enjoy a proper pint of beer and meat pie!

Sorry to go a bit tourist guide, but hope this helps.

Well Dunn

I cannot wait to go there! I've been in London a few years ago, but I was too young to do any real shopping. Next fall I'll start to study at the Westminster Uni in London, and I'll stay there for 2 years. I cannot wait to shop, especially vintage items, because in the south of France where I live, there are not so much good vintage shops around here (between Cannes and Nice).

I have some questions too.
Are the sales going to run in the second half of the August too? I know there won't be a lot left but still, can I hope to find some real bargains (considering I wear the smallest size - UK6)?

And another thing; most stores/shopping centres are open on Sundays too, is that correct?

Well for rock t-shirts I'd check Camden market and the shops around there and Shoreditch. Sometimes though, New Look and H&M sell rock t-shirts so it'll be worth looking in them.

Sometimes they cheekily put some more items on sale after the main sale starts so there is a small chance items will still be on sale during the second week of August. There won't be many and it would be best to check out the bigger shoppig areas like Oxford Street and both the Westfield shopping centres.

Most shops are open on Sunday but they close at five or six.
