Shopping in Europe was pretty awesome. I didn’t come back with a whole lot but I definitely spent and was really satisfied with what I came home with. Only a few minor let downs… one was a tweed blazer that I should have just paid for but rushing back to the hotel before checkout made me give it a pass, a pair of black wedge sneakers which were flooded in Rome but I took it for granted to be in abundance within Madrid and Barcelona and lastly my biggest letdown was the Chanel classic flap jumbo in caviar which was sold out throughout the destinations I traveled and my alternatives too were out of stock at my last destination in the Barcelona store. All in all though there was the usual high street stores like Zara, H&M, Mango, Massimo Dutti which were slightly cheaper than the stores here.
A bunch of my favorite purchases while I was in Rome, Madrid, Portugal and Barcelona besides the earlier post of the antique toilet roll holder.
My first few purchases in Rome, I’ve been eyeing one for the longest time and planned to buy one in black or lagoon. In the end, I left the store with a matching wallet which was not planned.
Got this in Madrid. I initially wanted a turquoise neon version but after seeing this piece online I decided to settle with the more rich and elegant teal.
I saw this on the way to Bottega and returned back after to get it. It is so unique and the store was filled with really unique bags.
My rebound purchase after being disappointed for the last time at Chanel in Barcelona. But honestly I did like the design and shape of the shades - simple, chic and versatile.
I’m usually not one for souvenirs but I just love the things in those touristy souvenir shops. I purchased the mask in Rome to add to my humble collection of Venetian masks. Its so intricately designed and pretty durable. The scarf is a typical Spanish designed scarf which I bought in Madrid while the fan I bought in Sevilla.
Depending on time, I might be putting up a post on shops to check out when your in Europe which I enjoyed.
