FASHIONTRIBES FILES: FAB FASHION FINDS- SHOP LONDON FROM YOUR OWN HOME-WESTWOOD, HARRODS, BROWNS, NICHOLS, LIBERTY, SHOP, KOH SAMUI AND DOVER STREET MARKET-PODCASTwww
If you know me, you know I love the shopping. London is, quite possibly, one of my favorite shopping destinations. I like the mixture of Japanese and American style. I like the blend of tame and crazy. I just like it. London is divided into 10000000000 neighborhoods, and each has little gems that you really can't miss. When I wish I was there instead of here, I like to order from there. Everyone knows Ghost, Paul and Joe and Jimmy Choo came to us via the land o' Fish and Chips. They have a great blend of high (Harrods) and low (vintage from Rockit) with some playful in between (Tatty Devine). A must hit.
Office-Adorable, inexpensive, and superb for flats!
Poste Mistress-Great blend of high and low. I love their namesake line.
Offspring-Office's sneaker oriented sibling.
Size?-Inquire for rarities and cool new things in the sneaker world.
