A Stylish Guide to Shopping in London

It’s become a Christmas tradition for us to get together with our girlfriends in the run-up to Christmas. We meet in London for some Shopping that usually turns into Drinks (obviously Claridges to check out the Designer tree, Karl Lagerfeld’s upside-down tree is a must see). We’ve put together a Stylish guide of where to go this year, from the obvious like Selfridges and Liberty to pop-ups. Pop-Up shops are a real trend this year, and it’s definitely worth stopping by a few to pick up some unique gifts. Online shopping is where we get most of our gift buying done, but you can’t beat London for making you feel extra festive.
