I am back from my Barcelona shopping trip. In this Barcelona Haul video I show you what I bought, how I wears it, with a few Barcelona shopping tips thrown in for women over 40.
I loved my shopping trip Barcelona. What I really enjoyed was that I found some unique things that I haven’t seen elsewhere and I didn’t break the bank.
I love Desigual. If you are going to Barcelona, then you must go to the flagship store in Placa de Catalunya. You can see the footage that I filmed in their store in my video blog here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZxrerTcAqQ
They have a signature style that you either love or don’t. I particularly love their denim jackets and they bring out different ones each year.
Tip: When you are wearing a statement jacket like this Desigual one, then keep the rest of your look fairly simple. That way you wear the clothes, the clothes don’t wear you.
I was on the lookout for a beautiful one piece swimsuit. It’s never an easy thing to find the perfect swimsuit.
Tip: When going shopping for a swimsuit, try not to wear too many clothes as you are going to have to try on quite a few till you find your perfect one.
Tip: Each store has a certain cut, so try various stores till you find a good cut for your shape, then try a few variations at that store.
The one that worked for me was Woman’ Secret. Their price points are affordable and their suits are fabulous. They have great bikini styles too.
This jacket was the highlight of my shopping trip. It comes from Coll-ars. It’s hand painted and a one of kind.
Tip: When you see a statement piece you really love, make sure you can wear it with a lot of other items in your existing wardrobe to make it worth the spend.
There is beautiful jewellery in Barcelona at every price point. I bought these earrings which are lightweight and dynamic.
