My absolute favorite spot for shopping is Harvey Nichols or Harvey Nicks as the true Londoners call it. It was founded in 1813 but the present building in Knightsbridge was opened in 1880. It resides on the top of Sloane Street which next to Bond street is the luxury haven in the UK's capital. It attracts a younger crowd than Harrods which is only a stone's throw away but tends to be more expensive.
This is the place for the ultimate overall shopping extravaganza and it is famous for its elaborate window dispalys. Five floors of fashion, interior and food which can give most wallets an inferioty complex. What Harvey Nichols gives you is exclusitivity and an array of brands you don't find anywhere else. When in the shop don't miss out on the experience of eating at their restaurant situated on the top floor.
Today you can also shop online since every selfrespecting establishment flog their goods on the Internet but that doesn't beat the real thing. It only soothes the withdrawal for a second or two. On line I found a gorgeous, blue velvet jacket from Dolce & Gabbana for the hefty price of £495. Another thing that caught my eye was a sweater from Ralph Lauren for £105.
Santa is going to be busy this year.
