That's why I'm giving you my top 10 shops in London. So if you go to London for a visit and you have a little time left to go shopping, don't forget to write down some of these amazing stores :)
Harrods has got it all! Next to its great food department, it also has the most elaborated handbag section, wedding clothes department, accessories,... and so on! You can spend days in this store! But the part I love most, is the fashion lab. With young fashion items for every type of shopper! At Harrods you can find every brand you're looking for and every fashion style you can imagine.
Selfridges is a very large department store on Oxford street that offers, like Harrods, a lot of different brands. It's even more elaborated and a more modern (less comfy) than Harrods.
When you're in London and it's raining or the weather is bad, it's the place to be!
It has the largest cosmetics floor and what I love most, is their shoe department. It's so great! If you can't find your perfect pair over there...
It has a great wall full of greens from -1 till the 2nd floor! You can find some great clothing over there, exclusive accessories (I LOVE their headbands!), Homeware, Homewear, interior design & interior accessories, books,...
A MUST VISIT STORE IN LONDON
We all know Topshop! The great thing about this store is that we can order their great stuff online too :)
But while you're in London, why not visit the real store? With 4 floors of super hype fashion! A lot of fashion accessories, cosmetics section, different brands, great clothes, their own shoe department, an own hair saloon,...
Though I do think they are a bit pricy sometimes (for the poor quality they offer) I still think you should visit the store because it's CRAZY.
Don't forget to have a look at their beautiful glitter-topped-cupcakes :)
Liberty is one of my favorite stores in London together with Anthropologie because of its interior and coziness. It's a department store, but it's not just a boring building. It's a beautiful "fachwerkhaus" in the centre of the city! They also offer unique and great brands like Harrods does and combine it with their own typical line: the prints. They have textile, home accessories, clothing, bags,... with their own designed prints!
What I adore about the Ted Baker stores is that they have the most amazing MEN's section! They offer the hottest outfits for men, the men working there proving it ;)
That's why I didn't leave with empty hands for the fiancé (hihi)
Kiko Milano has great products for a good price. I always use their nail polishes. They look like you're wearing gel on your nails and dry very fast (for only around €4 a bottle).
This time I also bought some lip primers (invisible lip pencil and lipstick primer base) and I totally love it! I bought it together with a bottle of nail polish and a lipstick brush for €23 (MUST BE HEAVEN)
All the All Saints store always have this "dark side" and I love it! The clothes are also in very dark shades, so I wouldn't want to buy the whole collection, but they offer such cool items! Definitely worth the visit and as they pop-up on every corner of the street in London, you WILL eventually hah!
You can also find an All Saints store in Antwerp of course :)
And my last recommendation is the Harvey Nichols department store, right in front of Harrods. More fashion brands, more designer bags, more great cosmetics,... though totally different then Harrods and Selfridges!
