A Glasgow Girls Guide to the Alternative Christmas Shop - La La Land

There is a reason Glasgow is Scotland's premier shopping destination - and while it may seem like the easiest option to hit up Buchanan Galleries and St Enoch centre for your Christmas shop - Glasgow has some of the best indie shops filled with affordable unique gifts off the beaten track - so thought I would bring a few of my seasonal picks from a few of my favourites!First up is La La Land - based up Decourcy's Arcade in the West End (off Bryers road, a 5 minute walk from Hillhead Subway Glasgow shopper) and is owned by the amazeballs Sarah Graham. Stocking Scottish designers like Jennie Loof, Hilairy Laing and Bonnie Bling as well as off beat labels like Brat & Suzie and Lady Oaf - La La Land is the premier shopping destination for fashion lovers of all things cute and a wee bit quirky. One of my top picks include Scottish designer Dazed Dorothy's windmill leather clutch - elegant, simple - sort of thing momma bear would love. I love love the tuxedo scarf from Lazy Oaf - perfect for this winter wedding, and in the sale, this is the sort of thing my dear Miss Anderson would adore, and at £8 it's a frigging steal. For a secret santa/stocking filler there is some DIY Nails. I love the bunny design with tiny carrots at £10.....too much to hold out for kitties with tiny fishes maybe? Last is present for self - the Scottish based Sit Back Ride Tiger skull unisex tshirt at £28. 100% cotton and a suitably gothy design. Swoon.
All my picks and all sorts of other delights can be found online - but would thoroughly recommend a visit to the store if you can! It's one of my long time favourites.


  1. Totes bookmarking this for the next time I go to visit my dad/friends at uni. Do you have any other tips for shopping or good stuff to see & do in Glasgow? I always find myself in the same places. Although I once found a goldmine of vintage shops, one stacked with cashmere... I can't remember where it was! Near a park... & the university.

  2. Hey Jess- will be posting about a few more of my fave Glasgow indie shops with Christmas gift guides in the next couple of weeks. Will deff have to do a guide to glasgow's offbeat shopping - my forte really is the city centre and west end but know there is some total hidden gems out in South Side and East End would love to post about! Was it Vintage Guru perchance you snagged the cashmere? xx

  3. love this mrs- what a round up! xxx

  4. Amazing!! I never knew that these places existed!!
    I'll have to now find out where they are haha!
    I usually stick to the city centre when shopping but I may have to expand out!
