Where to buy designer clothes in English stores?

Q. I know of Harvey Nichols, but which other shops sell expensive handbags (YSL, Chloe, Marc Jacobs etc), shoes (Jimmy Choo, Laboutin and Manalos), and generally expensive clothes and accessories?

Ideally in locations such as Sheffield, Nottingham, Leeds, Lincoln or London.

Thanks for you help! x

A. Hey ;)

In Central London the actual Chloe shop is there in Sloane Street. Also in London you sometimes find their range in Harrod's (Brompton Road, Knightsbridge) and Selfridges (in Oxford Street). You can also buy from there online at It doesn't look like they offically sell anywhere else apart from in Harvey Nichols in Leeds (which you obviously already know).

Jimmy Choo also sell their range in their shop in London, also in Selfridges and Harrod's.

Your best bet, if you can be bothered to travel all that way, is to go to London and go in Selfridges or Harrod's or Harvey Nichols..

GAH do sell some really nice dresses but they don't ship to the UK :[ so that's not much help..

Are suspenders preppy?
Q. I want a preppy style this year so I was thinking a white button down with a collar, black suspenders and leggings, is that preppy? Just to be clear on what I mean by preppy is stuff like
-Trench coats
-Cape coats
-Pea coats
-Slouch boots
-Riding botts
-Cable knit sweaters
-White button downs
-Oxford shirts
-Oxford shoes
-Knee high socks
-Pencil skirts
-Collar shirts
-Anchor necklace
-Perfect buns
-Suspenders (maybe? Are they preppy?)

A. I think suspenders are preppy as long as you style them that way. For example, if you wear it with a black lace blouse and a gothic style frilly skirt with black suspenders, it can come off more 'goth', etc.

Oh and pencil skirts aren't that preppy, they're more on the 'trendy' side. I'd go with pleated skirts instead.

I think a pair of white suspenders with a light pink & white gingham top would look cute with light wash jeans and some oxfords.

For the outfit I described... I own this top from Nordstrom's BP, it's so cute
In the 'Coral Ivory' Shade, but the mint green is cute as well
with some plain white suspenders:
light wash skinny jeans

And some pleated skirts:

I recommend brands like Lilliy Pulitzer, if you look in the dictionary for 'preppy' you'll probably find her clothing line in the definition.

And then stores like J. Crew (: It can get expensive, so I like shopping in their sale rack.
This girl on Youtube has a preppy sense of style and shows some of her outfits

Make sure your plaid shirts are simple like the one I linked you! Don't wear ones with wacky color combinations like purple+green+yellow.

And here's an awesome tutorial for the 'perfect bun' you mentioned, but it has a fun twist with some braids into it (:
