Recently voted "Best Department Store in the World" , Selfridges is a store you should absolutely check out. Whether you are looking for departments filled with everything from food to fashion or home to beauty, Selfridges has you covered. I like knowing that I could shop for anything from the latest lipstick shade to this season's top luxury fragrances. As a mom, I can appreciate one-stop shopping. That's for sure!
And if you are looking for stellar customer service – look no further. Long gone are the days of walking into a store and not being able to find someone to assist you. Selfridges prides itself in staffing employees who are knowlegable and attentive. We all know how this personal experience can make or break a shopping trip, right?
I live on Long Island – land of the mini-mall. Everywhere you look there are little malls filled with namebrand stores – very cookie cutter like. Well, Selfridges promises a different experience – an unique experience. One not to be missed.
I did a little window shopping and had to share all of the great finds I came across.
Even though he's not here yet – I fell in love with this JELLYCAT for the nugget I'm baking.
