I am convinced that London is my fashion soul-mate and the best city in the world (that I have visited) to find affordable and unique clothing. The keywords are affordable and unique, because you can always go to an H&M or Topshop or TJMaxx, but London offers boutiques supporting local, independent designers. Plus, there are endless amazing vintage shops. Also, on the streets of London, you find endless inspiration, as one can see on the street style websites like FaceHunter (photos above).
Here is a list of the shops that I heart that I stumbled upon my week in London.
1) The Laden Showroom: 03 Brick Lane, London E1 6SE:
2) THE LAZY ONES, 102, Sclater st. E& 6HR London
This was my other favorite local designer shop that is so cheap for what you get. The label is called Des Moines, and it is very close to The Laden Showroom.
Luna & Curious: 198 Brick Lane E1
This shop is also very close to the two listed above. It is perfect to find unique jewelry and tea pots. They had wishbone necklaces, earrings made from beetle wings and paper eyelashes as you can see below.
