being a blogger often comes with lots of perks. you may get invited to parties, receive free clothes and sometimes you even get to go on sponsored trips. all those things are pretty great and - yes - pretty decadent, too, but last saturday i was given an opportunity that had not happened to me before and that i only knew from books and movies: i flew across the country for a day to go shopping. i left at 8.40am and returned at 10 in the evening, bags full of clothes, naturally.
the generous donor or my extravagant shopping day was Wertheim Village, a large shopping village near frankfurt, with over 150 outlet stores. here you find ray bans for under €100 and designers like Escada and Longchamp for up to 70% off. a place that's on sale, all year round.
with amazing weather, it was fun strolling through the different shops, trying on clothes and occasionally flashing my 10% off VIP shopping card if i wanted to buy the odd cardigan or jacket. and to meanwhile be productive, i snapped some lovely street fashion of some of the other shoppers.
home in berlin, i often get so caught up in work that i hardly ever find a minute to go shopping. being able to combine work and stocking up my fall/winter wardrobe is pretty darn great.
by the way - should you want to go visit the Wertheim Village, head there for their Denim Weeks that are still on until september 15th and check out all the fun tuff they have going on like pimping your jeans in their denim workshop (studs anyone?) or the possibility of scoring sweet discount deals.
my four new jackets say winter can come.
