CHRISTMAS SHOPPING…Here’s some tips on getting started early!
Like so many others I leave Christmas shopping later then I’d like to. I dream of being one of those smug people who have everything wrapped come the end of November, it’s just never happened that way for me yet!
I do however have a handful of shops that I’m a complete sucker for where I’m guaranteed to always drop by and find a whole host of things I ‘need’. I thought as Christmas is slowly drawing in upon us that I’d share my go to shops for pretty much all gifts (although thus far I’ve managed to only treat myself and great ‘gifts’ they were too). Here I’ve selected a few must have pieces that I’ll definitely be gifting this year.
SHOPPING….Perched in the midsts of Shoredicth is one of my favourite streets for eating, sleeping, shopping and coffee drinking. Redchurch street has definitely benefited from it’s overhaul the past few years where there’s now an Allpress coffee house, Labour and Wait for simplistic but swoon-worthy homeware, The Albion Cafe for great produce and the beautiful Modern Society. Here I’ve not only bought smaller bits and bobs but an incredible and unique floor length summer dress and some very festive gold/bronze lama wide leg trousers from designer Isa Arfen. They cover toiletries for both men and women, underwear, eyewear (strong eyewear at that!) womenswear and both casual and evening attire. The aesthetic is 100% up my street; statement pieces which are classic and unique at the same time. There’s also some incredible stationary, jewellery and Japanese pottery so I would highly recommend you head that way and check it out for yourself.
Here I’m wearing current seas Etre Cecile sweat which has turned into my daily staple. It’s currently on sale for £120.
