Victoria's no longer a Secret in London

On the corner of Bond Street and Brook Street lies the most beautiful treasure of a store jam-packed full of the most luxurious lingerie imaginable. Covering over 40,000 square ft London's very own Victoria's Secret store is a huge slice of heaven only minutes walk from Oxford Circus. I had been dying to pay a visit to the black and pink wonder ever since it opened back in September earlier this year, and finally the day arrived. Walking in through the marble and glass doors, I felt as though I had reached cloud 9. Walls of the most ornately decorated perfume bottles and exquisitely designed lingerie, I just wanted to get one of everything single thing in every colour.
Dotted around the store are beautiful one-off creations as worn by the Angels in the past catwalk shows. Tutu's, wing's and ruffles galore, its definitely worth the trip just to see them. Wondering round the 4-storey lingerie emporium you notice all of the little details that makes the experience oh so special - the interior design seriously went to town on this one - even the chandeliers, adorned with little pink bows were handed crafted in Murano glass.









The well thought out layout makes the shopping experience just so simple and easy. Displays of beautiful bras on the table top, with labelled draws underneath that makes fining your size as simple as A, B, C.





In honour of the store's opening, Victoria's Secret have launched a new limited-edition fragrance, London, packed in the iconic black and pink striped packaging. 



As if the store wasn't grand enough, inside is the grandest of grand spiral staircases. Made of glass prisms that pick up the colours from the 4 storey LED screen showing videos of past catwalk shows and commercials, that could make you stop and stare all day.





Down on the basement is Victoria's Secrets PINK which is a youthful and collegiate inspired collection. A fun and playful brand full of polka dots and flowers with a collection of panties emblazoned in rather suggestive slogans. 


I couldn't help but pick up these limited edition pairs for Halloween.



The whole shopping experince is so well thought out, from the handsome chap opening the door for you as you enter, to the mini perfume bottles by the till and a wall of framed photos of the most beautiful women you have even seen. 

I had to pick up a couple of things, well I just simply couldn't resist.


What I'm wearing: Abercrombie Shirt, River Island Knitted Sweater, Topshop Leigh Jeans, Topshop White Brogues
