Because things are expensive in Switzerland, we wait to travel to other EU countries to go shopping for clothes, supplies & even food treats. One of those places for food & supplies is MERCADONA. I had to do a separate post for it to share what we love to buy there.
EL CORTE INGLES SUMMER MERCH
El Corte Ingless is a high end department store. Think Rustans of Spain. I love going around the home section because everything is just so beautiful! I cannot take these home because they are too bulky, but I can admire them & take pics. Aren’t they gorgeous? Most of them are not actually breakable so really perfect for summer picnics or balcony eats!
As you can see in my previous post, I’ve been a fan of SALVADOR BACHILLER for almost a decade now. I personally prefer the style before & the quality of the turquoise embossed leather items I bought before. They were more hardy & lasted longer. I noticed the leather now is matte & more easily stained & dirtied. They also have more fabric goods, jewelry & home items now. The home items are fantastic. If only I could bring them back to Switzerland.
Now this might not seem interesting to you because UNIQLO is accessible for you, but we don’t have UNIQLO in Switzerland so when we go to Spain we buy our essential pieces like the Airism Bras, underwear, the Ultra Light Down Jacket, parkas, yoga pants & any 100% wool or cashmere sweaters.
GOOD TO KNOW: When shopping in UNIQLO Spain, make sure to fit the item. The sizes run quite large here. In UNIQLO Asia, I am a size XXL, but in France and Germany I am a size XL. In Spain I am an L or sometimes even an M! What a huge surprise! They are definitely more plus-size friendly.
I had to take a pic of this lady’s outfit. I love here style. Layering white on white textures.
I’ll be adding more places I shop at when I have time to do the photos. So stay tuned!
I hope you found this post interesting!
