London Shopping and the Christmas Spirit

My London shopping experience…

Even though traditionally November brings the cold and ice to London- clearly not the case this year, I wore my Celine sunglasses much more than I held my umbrella:)-  it also brings the lights and the Christmas spirit.

I spent days wondering around the streets of London with my camera hanging around my neck like a Japanese tourist, capturing everything that caught my attention.

Enjoy my London shopping “potpourri” that includes the impressive, American inspired, the Christmas lights on Regent street, the window displays at Harrods and an inside closer look at the shoe Galleries at Selfridges and clothes at Harvey Nichols… to name a few.

Christmas Decor Regent Street

Those of you who follow me on Instagram@TrendSurvivor know I went many times to the amazing Anthropologie Store in Regent street. It is the first Anthropologie store in Europe, it opened on Regent Street in 2009. It still is one of my favorite shops in London with a carefully edited collection of inspiring pieces and an awesome artistic interior decoration.

Love the unique blend of furniture, lighting and home accessories from some of the most iconic designers at the Conran shop. This fluorescent Christmas table setting is an inspiring alternative to the classic red and green. Would I go for this unique Christmas table setting? Of course!

Harrods, the famous exclusive Knightsbridge store attracts thousands of shoppers from across the globe. Have a closer look at the spectacular 2013 Christmas window displays that took more than 500 hours to build. The most expensive item is a £80,000 worth Swarovski-covered gown by Ralph & Russo.

Christmas pop-ups at Selfridges London in November 2013 with impressive gigantic silver disco balls hanging from the ceiling. By the way Isabel Marant has just arrived at Selfridges.

Obviously, I spent most of my time at The Shoe Galleries at Selfridges London, check out the uber chic designer shoes in the pictures bellow. The Saint Laurant and the Alaia booties are so cool and feminine.

  1. Love this post with its explosion of colour and texture. I believe I was present somewhere there in the background at least during our [several] Anthropology visits on Regent’s street!

  2. Great post which has certainly helped me to get in the festive mood! The Harrods windows are so creative as you would expect. I already have my train tickets ready for my Christmas shopping trip to London and no doubt I shall be taking photos as well as looking for some unique gifts. Anthropologie and Liberty are always my first ports of call.
