On Monday I drove to Westfield in Stratford for the sole aim of going in the first Victoria Secret in Europe.
I wouldn't say I was super disappointed as I was so excited to get anything Victoria Secret but it was rather disappointing that the shop was so small, the toiletry displays were doubled up so they could easily have had some of the PINK or Yoga bras and clothes instead. There were a few items of clothes, some vest and hoodies and a few pairs of joggers but nothing like a USA shop, I went crazy in Vegas and was grabbing things like I was on supermarket sweep, but there was none of that here.
Instead I managed to get my favourite stretchy lace thongs which are 3 for £24 rather than 3 for $30 and a selection of body products as it was 5 for £25. I love the new body spray Vibrant Peony for this time of year, it is very fresh and uplifting and the shower gels are all favourites especially such a flirt (since I am)! Alone they are priced at £13 for a body spray and £9 for a shower gel.
I know people say things like this are overpriced but I have only been to the USA once in my life, so I am not in the position to just nip over there whenever I like and stock up!
Overall it was fun to go there but I hope that they hurry up with the Bond Street shop and that is has much more stock as I need more sports bras and workout clothes. The bras that VS make are too small for me, they don't even make my size but the sports bras are much more forgiving size wise and the tracksuits and casual PINK or Supermodel Essential clothes are so soft and cosy.
