Where to Shop-London

It's no secret that I love to shop. London is by far, one of my favorite
places to shop. Since, I just got back from a trip there, I thought 
it would be fun to do a post on where I like to shop while there. 

Here they are, in no particular order.

Cath Kidston 
Vintage inspired prints, fabric, handbags, home wares,
 accessories and clothing.

Luxury department store founded in 1874. 
Famous for their floral prints.

Fast fashion at a great price.
Best place to pick up trendy pieces
without breaking the bank.

Shoe store offering
all the hottest brands
and styles

Camden Market
Place to find unique items including
bric a brac, food, and clothing.

Spitafield Market 
Same as Camden but
with different vendors.

Fortum & Mason
Grocery store 
famous for it's teas.
It also sells other provisions.

Luxury department store with
a focus on new designers.
The store is beautiful.
You could spend a whole
day there!! 

Covent Garden
Shopping, restaurants, bars, 
and theaters. 

Portobello Market
World's largest antiques market.
There is something for everyone here.

Tower of London
They sell the best gifts
 for any Anglophile.

Luxury leather good.

One store I'm not crazy about is HarrodsWhile, they 
have everything you can possibly imagine, it is also usually
 very crowded. Too crowded for me. However, if you get there right 
when they open, you can move freely about the store. 
The trick is to have breakfast at Laduree- they open the 
store doors at 10 of 10.  You get 10 glorious minutes before
 everyone.   Don't underestimate how much you can do in ten 
minutes, see and/or grab! haha

Honestly, I could spend hours (days, even)
shopping in London. They have such great stores
 and many things you cannot get here. For instance,
alot of designers ( i.e.-Chanel,Gucci, New Balance, 
and Nike to name a few) make items that are 
exclusive to the European Market. 

My name is Marie and I'm a shopaholic.

Now, it's your turn.
Where do you like to shop??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
