If money was no object which high street shops would you visit and what would you buy!

I'm always waiting for sales and often what I want is sold out as way too expensive full price. So I have a little day dream about having a shopping spree one time where I go and buy things full price. This would involve the following:

All Saints: leather jacket and asymetrical styled dress and cardigan
Jisgaw: couple of dresses, a few tops and silk shirt
Russel and Bromley: pair of flats, pair of heels and a bag
Astley Clarke: earrings, necklace and ring
Monica Vinader: necklace
Links of London: turtle pendant with diamond
Molton Brown: nice stuff for bathroom
Lancome: full make up and all skincare
Paige: jeans and black fitted trousers
Then cocktails and taxi home 😜

Anyone else what to share their shopping spree fantasy?

Fun game, maugrim smile. Let's see...

Cosabella knickers in every colour.
Agent Provocateur silk pj's
A truckload of cashmere from Brora
All the Harbour tops from joules.
Paige jeans for me as well!
LK Bennett high heels
A fancy sock shop for cashmere socks
Jimmy choo sneakers
Net-a-porter probably everything

I'd go on because i'm greedy but I'll stop there grin.

Oops, I don't know how that turned into a link. It wasn't me!

I'd hit Boden for the cashmere and work trousers.
Karen Millen for a couple of dresses.
Hilfiger for basics and sweaters.
Mulberry for boots and bags.
Chanel and Charlotte Tilbury for makeup and perfume.
Reiss for more dresses.
Burberry for a mac.
Boss for suits for DH; I bought him one as a wedding gift and it's still beautiful years later.

Ooh yes, perfume! I'd definitely go to Chanel and buy a bottle of coromandel- joy in a bottle!

APC bags & candles, even though I'm disturbed by brands who use calf leather.
Acne knitwear.
Large bottles of Atelier Cologne fragrances, especially Orange Sanguine.

That's about it.

Great game! Could I have a small time machine too? Just powerful enough to take me back to around 2012 so I could stock up on Me and Em ruched tube skrirts.
And on the way back, Whistles for the dark green, leather belted jacket they had last Autumn.
Then back to the present and:
Bravissimo for shape rescuing bras.
Toast for slouchy trousers with which I am currently obsessed.
Brora for relaxed fit V neck cashmere jumpers.
Melvin & Hamilton for brogues.
Doc Martens for Made in England boots in oxblood.
Then a trip around all the high end vintage shops in London (don't even know where they are these days) for their best 40s/50s jackets, 60s swing coats, Harris tweed, silk shirts and cashmere.

And if I can really have anything I want, a limo to:
Vivienne Westwood for one of her tailored jackets.
Savile row to be measured up for an overcoat.
Coffee and cake at The Ritz smile

When I had money I shopped at Joseph a lot for their long sleeved ribbon edged v necked tops.

Sonia Rykiel for those slogan jumpers (I have one).
Brora for cashmere.
Paige jeans.
Hermes for a Kelly bag.

You can get Paige in TK for 50 quid.

Having gone downmarket, can I immediately reverse? A big Givenchy Antigone - such a well designed bag you never lose your keys, ever. HM cashmere dresses and DM monk shoes. HM or Zara leopard coat.

All my makeup from space nk or selfridges beauty-- hello tom ford and chanel

CallarMorvern Sun 26-Feb-17 15:31:17

Not high st...But J. Crew, Boden, Brora, New Balance for gymwear, LKBennet for shoes and Etsy for nice handmade bags and jewellery. Would still buy my jeans in Sainsbury's though 😁

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 26-Feb-17 15:38:58

Nice thread.

Whistles for seam backed t-shirts, a leather jacket and leather pencil skirt, plus several of their wristlet tiny bags. And if the time machine is working, mini tube skirts in as many colours as I can get.

Urban Decay - for their entire Naked collection

Vivienne Westwood for dresses, skirts and drapey tops

Lots of pairs of ankle boots - Hudson and Clarks would probably do

A Tiffany key necklace

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 26-Feb-17 15:39:29

Ooh and Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather - buckets full of it.

I must live in the sticks because I don't consider Gucci and Boss and Jimmy Choo as high street! slopes off feeling poor
