For a stylist I actually don’t shop very much, or at least I don’t think I shop as much as I’d like to. When I’m visiting another country I alway try and fit some shopping in, but in London it happens a bit more haphazardly. Recently my sister in-law was visiting and we thought we’d check out some secondhand charity shops. We headed off to Pimlico as it’s very central, it’s just a fifteen minutes walk from Victoria Station or Sloane Square. Pimlico has eight shops all within moments of each other. On the high street there’s a regular Fara shop, an Oxfam with some good books downstairs and a Sue Ryder. There’s also a Fara Kids shop just by the market. The Trinity Hospice was one of my favourite shops – I liked how it was merchandised plus it had lots of homewears and a good menswear section. If you’re looking for vintage Fara Retromania is the place to go, it’s quite fun and whimsical with dresses for £20 plus quite a few designer labels. There are also lots of cute cafe to stop for lunch and cake!
You can check out at all the shops on Google Maps.
