Absolute Vintage

Posted in Stores

This store is a true little treasure trove of vintage goodies! Stocking mens and womens clothing & accessories they boast one of the largest selections of shoes and handbags I have encountered so far!  The rails are tightly packed with clothing so some hunting is required, but the more options the merrier right?  If you are not able to visit in person they do offer a selection of goods on their website and international shipping.

This store is a great little discovery that I happened to stumble upon while walking around Covent Garden. Don’t let the small size of the shop fool you. It is filled to the brim with an array of womenswear, menswear, home trinkets, and my personal favourite: vintage pins! (Which is the easiest way to add your own signature to an outfit).  Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the neighbourhood!

Blitz Vintage

Posted in Stores

One of my favorite vintage stores in London is located on Hanbury St just off of Brick Lane in East London. The oh so spacious two floor layout, which was formerly a large Victorian warehouse, is overwhelmingly (in the best way possible) stocked with men’s & women’s clothing, accessories, jewellery, books, & furniture.  Where does one begin! The large selection is thoughtfully edited and all of the pieces are in stellar condition with an excellent price point to match. Expect to find leather skirts for £38 and gorgeous silk blouses for £25. (Two key pieces to help slowly ease the transition into your Fall wardrobe.)  It is the perfect place to spend an afternoon perusing through the racks while occasionally sipping on a latte provided by their in house coffee bar. Divine.
