If you want to be Alexa-Chung-at-Glastonbury for a day, then head into Dear Gladys. This not-for-profit vintage and contemporary boutique is the perfect place to step into to get a look with a whole lotta Camden charm for a fraction of the price. It's an explosive mix of Carnaby Street dresses, '70s sparkle and glamourous appeal; a collection of some of the most wearable, quality vintage in the heart of Northcote.

And with a range of accessories from bags, hats and shoes, you can be sure to find the whole kit and caboodle in this shop and still have the money left over for a cheerful lunch on the High Street strip.
