Shopping in London
Spring is finally here so it is time for some spring shopping! Renewing your wardrobe is more than just getting some new clothes. You also have to get rid of the unused, old ones. But you might ask, HOW? Well, it is as easy as pie. Take two boxes, one should be for the clothes you have worn in the past year and another for those which you have not. The ones that you haven’t even tried on in the past one year, you will never ever use again. Trust me.
So once you are ready, pick the box of clothes you have not worn in the past year and give it away or sell it. You can make some great money selling some old pieces. Being a typical model with a dress size 8 it's very unlikely my old dresses will fit busty escorts and the more curvy ladies who are looking for bargains. Now you are ready to go shopping.
London is a great place to do so, because it has a wealth of shops, whether you are looking for casual or designer pieces or just a fine souvenir you will definitely find what you’re looking for, as London offers a million opportunities to make your dreams come true. Just wander a little around some of the city’s shopping streets and I am sure your will not go home emptyhanded. Visit and browse Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street, Covent Garden and King’s road as a start.
Oxford Street has more than 300 shops from designer outlets to souvenir shops, it is located in the heart of London and is a great place to spend the whole day at. Some of the most popular destinations of those who wish to spend some money are Primark, of which there are even two mall-size shops on Oxford Street, Debenhams, Selfridges and let’s not forget about John Lewis either. The street itself can be easily approached as several tube stations can be found nearby.
Another well-known place to find numerous stores and shopping options is Regent Street. Besides a wide variety of mid-priced fashion shops, some of the oldest and most famous stores can be found there, for example Hamleys, the Apple Store or Liberty, so basically every shopaholic can satisfy his or her shopping needs.
If you plan to acquire some luxury pieces, Bond Street and Mayfair are the places you should definitely visit in London. They are the city’s most exclusive shopping areas, where you can not only come across some of the popular celebrities, but can also find some big fashion brands, like Burberry, Louis Vuitton or Tiffany & Co.
Covent Garden is definitely a place you don’t want to miss out when visiting London. From unique gifts to rare sweets and handmade jewelry, you can stock up on some crazy urban streetwear and funky shoes here. A great market to spend a day at and explore the craziness of the city.
King’s Road is the place of cafés and restaurants, a great area to shop some designer pieces and unique labels. Several interior design stores can be found here, not that far from the Chelsea Antiques Market, too.
I cannot repeat myself, this is only the beginning of my list, London offers its visitors countless opportunities to shop, from high-end fashion stores to local antiques markets. Everything depends on your budget now!
