So today I set off for a full on London shopping day with my cousin Olivia.
We first headed for oxford circus to one of my personal favourite stores ‘Beyond Retro’ in which we found some hot stuff shirts!
I love beyond retro just because they sell such great vintage clothing of all types, sizes and genders as well as some great accessories for such reasonable prices. Usually you can go into a vintage shop and expect to spend around £200 on one outfit! The shirt I bought from beyond retro was £26.
We then headed to Mayfair where we went into the ‘salvation army’ near the vogue office on Hanover square. Some amazing finds have been known to be found in this store. I found a beautiful pink jacket however it didn’t have a label. I wouldn’t give this store as much credit as some places online do.
Next we headed to South Kensington which we were heading to the British heart foundation store…although sadly the exact location in which it’s stated online is not there anymore! Typical! So instead we headed to a oxfam shop on Sloan square where Olivia found a gorgeous playsuit for a reasonable price as well. They had some lovely finds in this store and the shop was really nicely laid out..of corse a little more pricy as the shop is located in Chelsea and the clothes are a lot better labels.
We then headed back to oxford circus where I got a beautiful shirt I’ve been wanting for ages in topshop and a necklace in the sale!
My outfit of the day today was my checkered flower dress from new look paired with my converse and frilly socks and my topshop yellow box bag. For my make up today I did my normal eyes; shown on yesterday’s post make up today and a bright matte pink lip.
Today was a good shopping day, I like shopping in shops like topshop and main high street shops but I also like finding little boutique shops and vintage shops to find something different in. I love shopping in charity shops though I occasionally do. Sometimes you can find great bargains in them (even if they so smell like your Nan’s wardrobe). I love to find a different item and I change my style from time to time but I loveee big jewellery and accessories. You’ll see many of them from time to time on my blog.
