Oxford Street Shopping: The Ultimate High Street

If you are looking to dress in the latest fashions hit the High Street! Most boroughs in London have a high street (main road) filled with shops selling reasonably priced fashionable clothing and accessories. The biggest high street of them all is Oxford Street in London's West End.

Oxford Street is said to be the busiest street in Europe. The shopping strip runs for a mile & a half, and is particularly hectic on a Saturday afternoon.

Oxford Street is home to the huge Top Shop flagship store, frequented by lots of celebrities - so shop here and do some star spotting at the same time! You can also browse in other large chain stores such as GAP, Zara and H&M.

There are several large department stores to check out. My favourite is the stunning Selfridges, with its designer clothes and gourmet food hall.

Hidden just off Oxford Street, close to Selfridges, is the lovely St Christopher's Place. Home to several cafes, it is the perfect spot for a mid-shop break.

What to buy clothes, clothes, oh and why not a handbag....hmmmm....and matching shoes...

What to pay what ever the limit is on your credit card...

No. 9 John Lobb, Bootmaker Shop: If You're In The Market For Quality Shoes....

No. 9 John Lobb, Bootmaker is a place to go if you are in the market for hand made shoes. First, a fitter makes a detailed tracing of each of my feet to give to the last maker.

Then, the last-maker fashions (from woods such as Maple, Hornbeam, or Beech), a complete model of my feet. The selection of leather and the cutting of it is done by a clicker. When he is done, he gives the cut leather to a closer who stitches the leather for the upper portion of the shoes.

Then, the maker fits the uppers to the soles, which are made of English tanned oak-bark leather. The last step involves the buffing of the shoes aby the polisher. This six-step process, of course, costs a great deal, but after all this painstaking work, it's worth it.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that John Lobb is the Royal Family's shoemaker.

What to buy You can have flats, loafers, boots, tie-ups, or heels made. I had loafers made in brown leather, and I still have them.

What to pay This was a few years ago, and the shoes cost more than 125 pounds. I imagine with the weak dollar today, it will be double that.

H&M: Clothes

I've found my favourite sweedish 'H&M' shop. I like it's fashion, clothes and colours. And the prices aren't very high there. On the sales you can buy lots of good things for very low price. Enjoy:-)

What to pay For e.g., the price of T-shirt varies from 4 to 6 pounds, a nice suite around 50 - 60 pounds, jeans about 30 pounds, etc.

Clothes: Abercrombie and Fitch

I was brought here by VTer Ursule on our meetup with lou31 - never been here before nor ashamedly even heard of it! - an elitist visit really and a Things to Do even if not planning to go shopping - but apparently you are supposed to want to go shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch ( a bit like saying youve not heard of Harrods nor want to go shop or visit there! a bit like admitting youre not a particularly educated tourist!)

Anyway - I managed to get a few photos inside of the place with its high class decor and music - a bit like being in a nightclub! - with the trendy looking staff - before being told NO PHOTOS!! so thats a lucky catch!

This is the place to shop for business shirts and for prestigious label casual and sportswear. Anyone in the finance world will want to be known for their fashion sense with clothes bought from here. The stuff I looked at was notably well cut and the fabric felt great - good quality.

Another highlight is getting your photo taken at the door with a delectable Abercrombie and Fitch host!

What to buy Nicely cut and tailored business and dress shirts, casual gear - with the Abercrombie and Fitch label clearly to be seen!

What to pay About £50 for a shirt/blouse/nice Tshirt.

Clothes: Oxford Street

On my very first trip to London we were staying for a few days and then moving north to a wedding and then a few days at Mark's house. Mark needed to find a shirt for his suit and we decided to do some shopping on Oxford Street.

I love shopping on Oxford Street, every store imaginable can be found here. I stopped in at one of the local women's shop and picked up a cute blouse.

Mark found his shirt at a men's shop, not sure the man of the store, but there are so many, that you are sure to find what you are looking for at Oxford Street.

Primark: Bargain clothes shopping in London

If youre in central London then Oxford is a popular street to head for - mammoth sized branch stores of many Ladies clothes stores such as Primark, T.K. Max, H & M, New Look are along here

- along with the big Department stores such as Debenhams, Marks and Spencers, Selfridges - which can also be good places to pick up clothes at good levels of quality and design at bargain clothes - look for the price reduced racks - even better during the sales near the end of each season.

Primark is a chain of low priced mass produced clothing for all ages with branches out in many suburbs around London - the quality is quite okay - especially if you are looking for cotton garments such as tshirts, vests, socks, underpants.....
Ive had a very popular branch near me at Wandsworth and theres a big one at Tooting Broadway where Ive sinced moved
A very popular branch in central London is along Oxford Street, almost opposite Selfridges down at the Marble Arch end - its a huge store with a huge selection and a huge number of shoppers always in there! But theres some huge bargains to be found - especially childrens clothes are much lower than elsewhere.

Clothes: Pure tat

What to buy If you want a horrifically tacky souvenir of London, then you can't go to far wrong with a pair of these! I saw them for sale in the Halls Arcade which is right next to HMS Belfast where she is permanently moored on the Thames. However I think you can buy them in many places all over London. In case you are wondering about what the excuse is for a slogan like that, it is a famous phrase on the Underground in London. When the train pulls into a station which is on a bend, the trains don't fit snuggly against the platform, resulting in a gap between train and platform. Hence the warning.

I think they cost about £7 which makes them pretty bad value too! I can't imagine they would go down too well with many intended recipients, so unless you are trying to upset somebody, you are better off steering well clear of them.

Clothes: Shanghai Tang

Months ago I had received a gift from a friend who had recently returned from Hong Kong. The gift was an exquisite silk robe from the SHANGHAI TANG shop there.

It was the finest quality of silk I had ever felt up against the skin. After doing much research on the shop, I found out they had various locations outside of Hong Kong. One of them being London.

When you enter the shop on Sloane St., you are whisked away to another time and city. The London boutique opened in April 2002 and has something for everyone.....men, women, and children.

There is a definite oriental mystique in the shop. Shanghai Tang is known for its esoteric products and distinctive packaging. They blend traditional Chinese culture with the styles of the 21st Century – a vibrant fusion of ‘East Meets West.’

How appropriate! ;-)

What to buy Cheong Sam dresses or fancy robes and pajamas!

What to pay Mucho dinero $$$$$$$$
