My favourite way to shop in London is with a coffee in hand, before or after a meeting. At the moment I’m in need of a new pair of jeans (as mine are all a bit tired) and some cashmere for the fall.. and I’m always on the look out for fun affordable party dresses…! So with this in mind, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite pit stops in London.
This is the only place I ever buy jeans from – I just love the cut and fit. Skinny and flattering they just seem to hold you in at all the right places while elongating your legs – the perfect jean in my book! My favourite sytle is the BEDFORD just in case you want somewhere to start.
They also have great shirts, jumpers and jackets if you can splash out…I’ll be the first to admit that when popping in for a pair of jeans, it’s hard not to leave without something else as it’s such an easy-to-wear collection!
Pop in on OCTOBER 11TH when I’m hosting an in house shopping day! It will be at the store in Sloane Square which is a 2-3 minute walk from the Sloane Square tube station. I would love to see you and help you update your fall wardrobes 🙂
Here is the address where I will be hosting the event: 13-14 Sloane Square, London SW1W 8SB
If I’m looking for a party dress this is where I normally head. They have all the big labels as well as a few less known ones that are equally as good – I personally love the Zoe Jordan cashmere for something a bit different! They also have a great brow bar and fabulous coffee outside which is great for refueling before after your shop!
The store is nestled in the beautiful Duke of York Square – a stones throw from the Sloane Square tube station. Here is the official address: 6, Duke of York Square, King’s Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4L
Another great shop for party dresses has to be Matches – my favourite store is in Notting Hill. There is a great selection and a very clever buying system incorporated too. They do have an online store but I like to try on the dresses rather than buy on line if I have time.
They have various stores around London so you can find them at these addresses:
87 Marylebone High Street
85 Ledbury Rd, Notting Hill
109-143 Morning Ln, Hackney
36 High Street, Wimbledon Village
My first port of call for jumpers – I love their cashmere, its funky and a bit different. My fall wardrobe mainly consists of a cashmere jumper, leather jacket and jeans with boots so I love to stop in if I’m nearby to see what they have. I’m also obsessed with their scarfs which can add a bit of fun to an outfit, as well as warmth. I have found some amazing summer dresses in here too so it’s worth popping in all year round!
They have 18 locations all around London so you’re sure to find one close! All stores can be found on their website.
The only place I buy swimwear – I love their swimsuits and sandals. The store is tucked away, just off just the Kings Road, Chelsea. Rhonda is great at helping you pick out pieces that make you feel confident on the beach or by the pool! I love their brands and they have a great selection of kaftans, dresses and accessories too!
Biondi address: 55B Old Church Street, Chelsea, London SW3 5BS
I love Donna’s blouses and cashmere – she just closed her London boutiques but everything is now online so you won’t miss out! She also has an amazing selection of jeans too!
