Walk in Twiggy's Shoes

Open for the month of November only, the shop near Carnaby Street is crammed with retro shoes, handbags and accessories from top designers. A bit of bargain-priced Mary Quant or Vuitton, anyone?

Besides Twiggy, donors include the likes of Rosamund Pike, Peaches Geldof, Trudie Styler and Dame Helen Mirren. Geri Halliwell pitched in heels from the Spice Girls reunion tour, Christian Louboutin handed over some blue sequined stilettos, and Queen of Shops Mary Portas donated autographed Stuart Weitzmans.

The Barnardo's store is at 69 Broadwick Street, so get that holiday shopping started. Everyone on your gift list should be happy to know their presents are helping more than 100,000 children fight poverty and inequality.
