Elle Ford isn't waiting till she's forty to be fabulous. And, with A London Steal, her readers won’t need to either. This unique budget style guide reveals the tricks to funding the fabulous on the tightest of student incomes and less. To gather the street-chic secrets from the looks to the lifestyle of a seemingly effortless London Girl, author, illustrator, club PR, vintage dealer girl about town Elle has delved past the obvious, harassed her friends, colleagues and more than a few strangers. London is one of the most vibrant, chic, alternative and culturally international cities on the planet. It’s also famously expensive. Discover the fashion haunts, shops, cafes, clubs and bars of the smartest young Londoners without having to compromise on style or veer off budget.

Elle Ford is a London born writer and illustrator currently finishing her final year studying for a BA in History at the University of Exeter. A London Steal started as the accumulation of her work in Vintage around Central and PR in Mayfair, but really comes from her realisation at an early age that there were very few lengths to which she would not go to keep her subscription to Vogue magazine.
