Firstly, the least elusive Topshop; but one small collection currently only stocked in the Oxford Circus store, The Ragged Priest. Reworking vintage with candy-pastel dyes and bold studs, with key peices being a blue and pink studded denim shirt, stud cuffed boots and studded denim shorts: you can check out the online site here if you can’t make it to the Oxford Circus.image

Next up head to Eastcastle Street, just minutes away from Topshop, and can be reached via a detour leading to the off-street Starbucks or McDonalds for a less packed latte or mocha!

With vintage inspired dresses, shoes, accesories etc, a vintage rail and an absolutely fabulous decor; Fever is a must-go place. Fitting rooms with used, old house front doors and wooden display cases and tables to show off the brilliant jewellewry and accesories: this is one of our by-far favorite retail store in Oxford Circus.

So, charity shops. Some of you may be cringing reading those words, but this post is to change your mind. As a successful charity shopper some days there’s nothing like looking through the rails and finding the most beautiful item of clothing in your hands, for £2.50. Shoes, bags, scarves, blouses, skirts, belts…etc, the list of charity shop stock is endless, and with crazy prices, I ensure once you go once you’ll be heading to those charity shops every weekend instead of the shopping centre. And it will seriously increase the amount of cash left in your purse after a shopping spree. And to those who are STILL cringing at the idea of wearing secondhand clothes, I was once in that position until I was dragged into one, and ever since…

And finally, just to convince you further that this will be the best choice you make during the whole 2012, I’ve raided Lookbook for charity shop and thrift store spends, and heres a gallery of the best outfits featuring (and sometimes entirely consisting of) charity shop items…have a look!
