SHOPPING SHOPS CAN BE FULLY COUNTED TO ONE OF THE MOST PLEASANT WAYS OF TRAVELING
HOWEVER, WHEN DOING SHOPPING, I UNWILLEDLY COME WITH CERTAIN PROBLEMS … The hardest thing, in my opinion, is to determine how much money can be spent on this or that thing. Nobody wants to give too much. At the same time, buying something cheap and of poor quality is a waste of money. I have already touched on this problem before and now I would like to summarize: purchasing something that directly depends on the cut (trousers or classic jackets), quality (accessories like leather handbags) or is a long-term investment of money (coats and little black dresses), has it makes sense not to limit yourself in spending. You should save on simpler things.
Most of the items that make up your wardrobe can be purchased not from designers, but from chain stores. I must say that recently the quality of their assortment has improved enormously, and this applies not only to Topshop, but also to stores such as Primark, Matalan, etc. I have to admit that here in Spain I really miss British brands. At least there is a Topshop branch in Madrid, and as you can imagine, I am a regular visitor. I also like Mango and Zara, which deserve the highest praise. Sometimes it seems to me that my friends come here from England just to visit Zara. Just imagine: as soon as they get off the plane, they immediately rush to find the nearest shopping center! And this is not surprising, because the company specializes in things based on the most fashionable design projects. So everyone can buy outfits that resemble the seasonal collections of Chloe, Dolce and other famous fashion houses. My friends call this "firm" Dolce & Gazzara. As soon as they fly to visit me, they immediately hear: "Let's take a walk in Dolce & Gazzara!" The best places to look for gadgets are vintage shops. If you are looking for something of value, it makes sense to look at brands like Lanvin, Versace and Valentino, whose products have been captivating for decades. Vintage outfits are becoming more and more popular these days - perhaps because a few big brands are setting the tone for clothing. This means that people look very similar today, which makes them look for something truly individual. In addition, many celebrities began to come to special events in vintage outfits - at least this allows them to hope that no one else will come here in the same dress. However, many women do not like going to vintage shops, which is not surprising. All the clothes are mixed up there, and at first glance it is difficult to tell if you will look like Julia Roberts or like Pat Butcher in this dress. Prices are sometimes downright daunting, and some sellers look at you as a dumbass if you don’t know this is a genuine Azzaro. Typically, the people who work in vintage shops are well versed in the styles and history of clothing (which makes vintage shops stand out from places where any second-hand clothing is sold). By the way, I am annoyed by the fact that some vintage points do not attach price tags to clothes. It feels like the price is set here on the move, depending on who came to buy. I recently had such a bad experience in a vintage shop when I inquired about the cost of one item. The owner looked at me in thought, and in his eyes it was clearly read: "Hmm, Victoria Beckham, hmm … - then calmly declared: Five thousand pounds." Five thousand pounds!
Victoria Beckham and other stars who had a lavish wedding
Although it was in 1999, Vera Wong's dress for Victoria Beckham is still considered one of the most beautiful dresses in the world. Victoria herself believes that time has no power over the dress, and she still keeps it in her wardrobe. She hopes that one day her daughter Harper will want to wear it to her wedding.
