Shopping in London: ROKIT vintage

Our study center is in the heart of all the good shopping in London, thus I've had quite a bit of time to explore all the cute nearby shops! Walking around one day I discovered Rokit, a gem of a vintage store filled clothes filed by decade. I got lost browsing among all the bargains of vintage jewelry, Levi boyfriend shorts, and 80's tiered skirts.

Everyone's sporting boyfriend shorts abroad! I've already bought myself a pair since I've been here; this whole rack was priced at 10 pounds!

The store has 3 locations throughout London (one in Camden, Covent Garden, and Brick Lane). They also have an online store! They loan out their vintage duds to magazines like Vogue, Dazed and Confused and i.D. magazine! Definitely take a peek if you're ever in London!
Do any london-ers have any other shops I should check out while I'm here?

Looks like an awesome colorful shop. I never had a chance to visit many vintage shops while I was in London a few months ago... I want to go back already!

I didn't do much vintage shopping when I was in London. My favourite shops were B Cosmetics (great eyeshadows!), Next, and Selfridges. Next was where I bought one of the comfiest pairs of heels I've ever owned, and even with the exchange rate it only came out to around $60.
