^ dragonlance, thank you so much! I can tell you now I am NOT one of the rich people!! I love designer clothes as much as the next person but being a student I just can't afford them right now. I tend to stick to designer accessories (mainly handbags and shoes) and shop vintage/ high street for the rest. I think unfortunately I am going to miss all of the sales. which is a total bummer. I'm there from early hours of thurs morn and leave sat night.

My plan is Thursday:Oxford St:-Topshop, down to Carnaby St:- Liberty, All Saints, maybe Miss 60. Back up to

Oxford St, along to Selfridges, maybe H&M, down to Browns, then Vivienne Westwood on Conduit St,

Then along to Covent Garden, Urban Outfitters, Size?, Rokit, Reiss

Fri:- Tate Britain (my mam wants to go) Portobello Market, Rellik, and I'd like to do Kings Road on the Friday too 'cos I've never been to it before.

Sat:- Back to anywhere I think needs to be re-done (I am the WORST shopper ever, have to look everywhere before I buy something, V annoying ) I'm staying pretty near Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market so I might have a wander down to there one day.

If anyone feels like I've missed a place out that I SHOULD be going to please tell me!!
Also, does anyone know if Superfine are stocked in anywhere other than Harvey Nick's, i.e. Selfridges, Browns? Cos they are top of my shopping list, but I really don't like Harvey Nick's so was hoping I would be able to save time and get them somewhere else?

thanks for the advice, to be honest I dont want to go to the Tate, I'm not particularly into art, but my mam wants to go, and she's paying for the whole trip so I gotta oblige!

Bench clothing in London?
Hello, I'm a noob here and I luuurve this site!
Are there any Londoners here that can tell me which shops in London sell clothes from the label Bench?
Or if there's a website where I can look it up?

It doesn't say on the Bench website and I've googled it with no results.
Thanks in advance!

For One Month Only - London
For One Month Only

Anyone who has a passion for fashion needs to master space management, expecially if like journo Tom Bottomley, you live in central London. After years of letting his global collection of designer discoveries encroach on the lives of various tolerant friends and rellies, Tom has decided to sell off his togs.

The former Portobello stall-holder who co-wrote Gola, A Century of Sporting Fashion reckons he's "driven my mum, nan and ex-partner mad for years with all my bin bags full of gear, so I'm clearing the deck - and most of their storage space!" The For One Month only shop opened on Tuesday September 6 at 8 Newburgh Street with prices ranging from £10-£750 for pieces including a selection of vintage waistcoats (Oh, soo Kate Moss), a US Air Force 1940s leather jacket identical to the one worn by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape and lots of one-off samples and his personal collection of vintage pieces from both the UK and US.

Head over next week when Tom will add old Pea coats and checked hunting jackets and don't forget to have a chat with him - he'll be able to tell you the individual history of each garment whether it's been blagged, begged for or bought.


  • For One Month Only open until October 6 2005, 8 Newburgh Street, W1 open Tuesday - Saturday 10.30am - 6pm.

I've heard of similar concepts, mainly in LA though. Could be good. If you go, please report back!

i love this idea...

i'd like to do something like this myself...
but on a much smaller scale of course...

i really feel like clearing out the cupboards...
letting go of some stuff...
and ebay just turns me off...
i need immediate gratification...even when i'm selling stuff...
