London city glistens with the most beautiful lights (LED, or energy saving of course), and the famous Harvey Nichols and Harrods stores are a must-see for tourists and those of us that live here.
Throughout the store I could hear the Aussie accent – all drawn to the store to purchase the iconic Harrods tote with the Scotty dog. The shop is bursting with all sorts of gift shop goodies these days including a range of Hello Kitty for Harrods. For those who follow my ChicFantastique blog, you will no doubt remember my penchant for the gift shop.
I took Mini M for her first ever visit to Knightsbridge the other evening. Being a Tuesday evening the store was so quiet and we were free to wander through floor by floor looking at sheets with a high thread count, oversized metal chess pieces, and the very gorgeous Christmas shop. Next week will be a different story with he last minute rush of shopping for gifts. As it was, I was intrigued to know what was in all the massive Harrods bags being hurriedly carried through the store by the neat apron-clad personal shoppers. It made my tiny little Harrods bag look only minutely important. Inside my bag however was a very important purchase – Mini M’s first ever pink Christmas bauble. Of course with the ever-famous and rather garish Harrods logo and a scary looking ginger bread man – however it was a necessary purchase.
En-route to the store, we stopped to take photos of the most stunning window displays which aligned the outside of Harrods. It’s a magical, fantastical Swarovoski inspired display. Gorgeous lights, scattered crystal gems, beautifully dressed mannequins in floor length swooping gowns and velvet tux jackets. It’s like a scene from Narnia.
