This is my second post of my trip to London, if you missed the first you can read it here. It’s all about the shop window displays at Liberty and Selfridges.
This post continues on from there when we went to Harrods and Covent Garden.
Harrods store looks absolutely stunning lit up, we were lucky enough to get there just as it was starting to get dark at 4ish and it looks so pretty.
The windows and doors were framed with hedges that were filled with fairy lights. It was so simple but effective.
As for the actual window displays the theme was based on the Orient Express and each window was a different carriage:
Each window was dressed so beautifully and extravagantly I felt like I’d gone back in time. Not only were the models dressed fabulously the scenes were exquisite and the attention to detail was out of this world.
This one was my favourite, mainly because of the unbelievable dress and stunning Louboutins
Another of my favourite things was every carriage had a ‘window’ which was a tv screen with a rolling view of snowy landscapes and even some famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower which i managed to snap quickly!
The windows were amazing and obviously getting inside the store was even better. I didn’t enjoy wandering around Harrods as much because I had a lot of shopping by this point and there were so many other people around.
The food section was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and I would absolutely die to go there and sample some of the freshly made food as it was stunning and smelt like I was abroad depending on which stand I was near.
Wandering around London was great in itself and each street was lined with rows and rows of Christmas lights and baubles:
The above photo is one of my favourites as the snowflakes are beautiful!
Our last stop was Covent Garden which wasn’t planned but as we had a bit of spare time we couldn’t resist a wander around here too.
Outside near the Royal Opera house was a massive hedge reindeer covered in lights and even had a red nose; touches like this are so special and make the whole Christmas experience that much better.
This tree was the opposite side to the reindeer and was absolutely huge!
London was so much fun to walk around and the Christmas decorations in streets, windows and stores were absolutely gorgeous!
Have you or will you be making a trip into London to the shops?
I think it will have to become a tradition for me and my mum!
