It was a day that both Fleur and I had been waiting for… the opening of the Victoria’s Secret store in London!  So you can imagine our excitement when we finally crossed the threshold into the absolutely amazing establishment. And we were not disappointed!

Set over four floors Victoria’s Secret is a den of delight!  An absolute must see shop, even if you are not in need of new undies – it is a real treat for the senses! Split into themed rooms everything is displayed in the fantastic VS way, making it so easy to find exactly what you are looking for.  Adding to the unbelievable shopping experience, housed inside is the most fascinating collection of iconic costumes worn during the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, making it almost like a lingerie museum. Covering the walls are beautiful photographs of past collections, and even the staircase showcases a two-storey video screen playing a montage of VS footage – from catwalk shows to behind the scenes exerts. Everywhere you look you are surrounded by images of their stunning models. If you take your other half in there I am not sure if you will be able to get them out!

The only disappointment was the prices, when you compare the price in dollars to pounds us Brits really do get the raw deal.  I do however think it is worth every penny, they blow all of their UK competitors out of the water in terms of style, selection and service.  The fitting rooms are just amazing, located on each floor each is individually themed and fitted to perfection. And in true US style there are so many assistants to help you, in a very friendly fashion too.

So, if you are looking for honeymoon lingerie, new perfume for your trip or just a fantastic new shopping experience…  I would definitely recommend a visit to Bond Street!
