London means music and street fashion to me. This is the place for the young and free.
Too it means vintage markets (portobello and camden etc) where you can buy clothes by the pound.....
I have found a few stars in the market of Vintage Stores:
Beyond Retro: 112 Chesire Street. A huge store. W/ lots a cute dresses and pumps in all colors you would want.
Radio Days: 87 Lower Marsh Street. Wonderful store with more than clothes; here you can find old phones ( 30's to 70's), magazines, perfumes etc.
Rokit: 107 Brick Lane. Always find items here. Both for myself and for my styling. The last item i bought was a wonderful black eggshaped coat with fur collar. Beautiful!
Rellik: 8 Golborne Road. A little more expensive but Full of designer vintage. just go at least for inspiration. if you go on a Friday or Saturday; the portobello market is in the area so you could do both....
Wow Retro: 10-14 Mercer Street. Most items are priced around 10 pounds. Cool items.
After Wow Retro you could go have some cakes at Candy and Cakes.
My other favorites are:
Harrods and Selfridges. Just to look at the beautiful Window displays they always have.
To Primark for cheap stockings (2 pounds).
