Gilly Hicks Down Undies & Clothes: Shopping at London Westfield Part 1

Last Thursday while most of my American friends were tucking into their turkey for Thanksgiving and my office mates sat through another fortnightly departmental meeting, I was shopping my heart out at London's Westfield Shopping Centre with my mummy dearest.

It was a successful day, as both my pins and the chip and pin in my card got a workout!

I already tweeted that I got some goodies, but today I want to share some of my stash, in particular my spoils from a visit to Gilly Hicks. I have to admit I have probably have more Abercrombie & Fitch clothing in my closet than a preppy teenager, so I'd been admiring Gilly Hicks on the A&F website for awhile. Gilly Hicks has 'partnered' themselves with Abercrombie & Fitch and even shouted about it in shop with signs: 'Gilly Hicks, Abercrombie & Fitch's Cheeky Cousin'. As part of their partnership, A&F started having a Gilly Hicks page or cross promotion, in particular for their under garments range (I love that they call their underpants, 'down undies'!). So when I saw someone with a Gilly Hicks shopping bag in Westfield, I knew I needed to visit!

I wasn't disappointed. The Gilly Hicks shop had the same atmosphere as A&F with the loud music and the dark lighting, but sadly lacking the smell of Fierce (that's A&F's cologne that you can usually smell about 3 blocks away permeating from the store). Ah, it felt like shopping home! I was surprised to see that GH actually had a lot of clothing items. Although I wasn't as interested in these, I still managed to pick up a cute blue camisole (Callala Beach in Navy), which was a bit pricey at £18, but had such lovely velvet detailing I just couldn't say 'no'.

 I also picked up a bunch of down undies as I've been wanting to check these out! I haven't washed and worn yet, but they feel amazing and I don't think I'll be disappointed. Well, they weren't cheap, so I best not be disappointed (3 pairs for £15, okay I guess that's not too pricey, but if you order off the website and live in the UK you have to pay £20 S&H OUCH!).

Now that I know there's a Gilly Hicks in London, I'm hoping to add this to my list of favourites. Good undies are hard to find!

Have you checked out Gilly Hicks? Any fav undergarment shops?

  1. Not familiar with the brand at all, but I do love the cami you picked up! So pretty.

  2. It's an Australian brand that looks like it's breaking into the UK and US market.
