Today, we would like to take you for a walk amid semi-precious gems, gold, bronze and silver – everything in hard to meet elsewhere designs and shapes, away from the high street style and stores.

Last week I was at the world biggest tech conference WebSummit in Lisbon, Portugal, and what surprised me - among 60.000 attendees from around the globe - there was quite easy to spot fashionable and outstanding guests. And NO - they were representing start-ups not necessarily related to fashion tech!

Outlet Shopping Is Not What You Expect

By on 06/11/2017
Are you sometimes tempted to shop in a designer outlet to get the best bargain ever? We tend to think that by shopping there we hunt not only for a bargain, because regular prices in outlets are often discounted, but that the price for our coveted designer item will be even lower becuase they sell stuff from previous seasons. If you have ever thought like that, we can tell you it is not quite right. Today, we will take you round the best known London outlets but most importantly – we will debunk the myth about their splendour and will show you how they really work. Ready to learn the truth?

Bo

I'm Bo - founder of ShopTrotter and BoldOld Blog I kind of like fashion - meaning: I like to look good, but spending too much time shopping is something that makes me feel overwhelmed. Besides of that - I have a walk-in closet full of wonderful stuff that I use once in 1-2 years... I know, it's outreagous! So I decided to start the Instagram account and try to reuse pieces I own for a long time, without compromising on fashion and style. My new motto is to re-create and re-cycle, instead of buying new stuff over and over. Now I shop consciously - buying only the items that complement my other clothes.
