There is something very whimsical about shopping in Europe…and I managed to slip in “a little bit” of shopping while I was there. Here are some of the highlights from my trip:
The Galerija Emporium in Slovenia was amazing! It was my absolute favorite place to shop in Ljubljana. Alexander McQueen, Armani, Furla, Michael Kors, and Versace were among some of my favorite stops.
SO much restraint was required while shopping in Italy. In Venice, I found an amazing Chanel bag — something that has been on my wish list for a while.

Instead, I opted for an amazing structured ostrich leather bag (pictured above). Ostrich is a MUST this fall! Find a similar ostrich bag for a splurge here or a steal here.
I ran out of time in Florence to visit the Prada outlet (where you can find amazingly great deals on all-things Prada). But, I was able to visit a flagship store at the Piazza Spagna in Rome. When in Rome… 🙂
