Ola from Barcelona. I am here for a few days on a shopping trip. I'm going to discover and tell you the most amazing places to shop at every budget.



La Rambla is a massive, busy street that runs through the city of Barcelona. Since it's so loud and so busy, I prefer to go to the side streets to shop.



On La Rambla in the Gothic Quarter is Custo from Barcelona. The designer has an interesting use of colour, fabric and print. His styles are funky, but in a classic sort of way. He is a mid price range designer. Pieces cost in the region of €145.



If you love beautiful sleepwear, swimwear and underwear, then Woman's Secret is the shop for you. Prices are reasonable and fits are amazing.



Off La Rambla is Portal del Angel which is the high street of Barcelona. This is where you will find H&M, Mango, Zara etc. There are lots of cost effective places to shop in Barcelona.

For day 2 of my shopping trip in Barcelona, I am in Placa de Catalunya. This is where everything happens. It is the place to be. It's also the best place to shop. The square is filled with stores as well the little side streets that lead off from the square.



A shopping trip to Barcelona is not complete without a visit to Desigual. Especially this store as it's the flagship. It has 3 floors filled with clothing for ladies, men and children. The staff are also amazing. They make it a pleasurable shopping experience.



When you come to Placa de Catalunya, you have to stop off at this massive Zara. I found some things that I haven't seen at other Zaras around the world because the Spanish are not afraid of bold colour, styling and print. Zara originally comes from Spain, so this is it's home town.



Here is this massive department store, El Corte Ingles. It has several floors offering various brands and various price points.

Where to shop in Barcelona day 3 | El Born District | Jewellery shopping Subscribe to channel https://goo.gl/wSXFlV

Visit website http://tracygold.co.za



For day 3 of my shopping trip in Barcelona, I go to the El Born district. This district is a little more edgy and I'm hoping to find some unusual stores here.



I'm standing outside Carma Anglada, one of the many beautiful jewellery stores in this district. Most of the jewellery is made by Spanish designers, so you will find some beautiful and unique pieces. I bought these earrings made of aluminium for only €29. You also get some more specialist stores like Zigna Design where prices vary from €165 - €265.



Coll-ars is a gem of a store. It's here that I found a handpainted leather jacket. The store is owned by a Spanish mother and daughter team and the daughter is an artist. She paints words on the jackets in Italian using words such as freedom, patience, love etc. The artist believes that as a woman wears the jackets, they take on those words. They also have handmade scarves and handbags.

Where to shop in barcelona day 4 | Designer brands | Stradivarius | Bulevard Rosa Subscribe to channel https://goo.gl/wSXFlV

Visit website http://tracygold.co.za



On day 4 of my shopping trip in Barcelona, I take you to the designer strip in Passeig de Gracia.



This street leads off from Placa de Catalunya, so it's really easy to find. You will find top designer brands like Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Longcamp etc.



In the same street, scattered amongst the designer brands, you will find some fabulous high street brands that offer high fashion clothing at reasonable prices. A great example of this is the Spanish brand Stradivarius. They had some fabulous things in their store for Spring.



There is also Bulevard Rosa Shopping Centre. It's a small centre, but it has some very interesting stores. It's here that I found The Outlet store. They have a few designer brands at knock down prices. There were also some lovely shoe stores ranging from €129 - €200.

Where to shop in Madrid day 1 | Zara | Mango | Desigual | Gran Via Subscribe to channel https://goo.gl/wSXFlV

Visit website http://tracygold.co.za



Ola from Madrid. I am here for a few days and I am going to discover and share with you, the best places to shop in this vibrant city.



I am in Gran Via. This is the main high street shopping strip in Madrid. It has the most amazing options as far as affordable fashion is concerned.



Even if you think you know Zara, Mango, Desigual etc, because you shop them in your own city, when you come to a different city, it's worth a pop in. What I find is that even the chain stores will vary according to the city. They take on the vibe of the city and it's people, so you may find some unique and interesting thing.



Also something to note is that quite a few of the high street brands that we know and love like Zara, Mango, Desigual, Woman'Secret are from Spain. Here you may find some amazing things you might not find at the stores in your own city.



Just off Gran Via is the Desigual flag ship store. This store is a real treat as even the decor fits in well with the Desigual styling. Once again, even if you have been to a Desigual before, you need to come and take a look at the one in Madrid. It even has an outlet floor filled with things on sale.



One thing I've discovered about Madrid is that there is an abundance of affordable options together with some unique Spanish designers.

For day 3 of my shopping trip in Madrid, I am in the Salamanca district. If you want something a little more upmarket or designer brands, then this is where you need to come.

They stock a variety of brands, everything from your top end brands to the mid range brands.

Woman' Secret https://womensecret.com/es/es/homepage



Hand painted leather jacket is from Coll-ars https://www.facebook.com/CollaRsComplementos/



Earrings are from Carme Anglada http://www.carmeanglada.com/index.php?ident=3



I loved my shopping trip Barcelona. What I really enjoyed was that I found some unique things that I haven't seen elsewhere and I didn't break the bank.



I love Desigual. If you are going to Barcelona, then you must go to the flagship store in Placa de Catalunya. You can see the footage that I filmed in their store in my video blog here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZxrerTcAqQ

They have a signature style that you either love or don't. I particularly love their denim jackets and they bring out different ones each year.



Tip: When you are wearing a statement jacket like this Desigual one, then keep the rest of your look fairly simple. That way you wear the clothes, the clothes don't wear you.



I was on the lookout for a beautiful one piece swimsuit. It's never an easy thing to find the perfect swimsuit.



Tip: When going shopping for a swimsuit, try not to wear too many clothes as you are going to have to try on quite a few till you find your perfect one.

Tip: Each store has a certain cut, so try various stores till you find a good cut for your shape, then try a few variations at that store.



The one that worked for me was Woman' Secret. Their price points are affordable and their suits are fabulous. They have great bikini styles too. You can see more about Women' Secret in my video blog here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oujg8wZbT4I



This jacket was the highlight of my shopping trip. It comes from Coll-ars. It's hand painted and a one of kind. You can see the full story in my video blog here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAUVuJw6qO0



Tip: When you see a statement piece you really love, make sure you can wear it with a lot of other items in your existing wardrobe to make it worth the spend.



There is beautiful jewellery in Barcelona at every price point. I bought these earrings which are lightweight and dynamic.

Madrid is not usually a shopping destination, but what I did find is that it has an abundance of cost effective options for high fashion items. It is also the Mecca of shoes. So if you love shoes, then Madrid is a wonderful place for you.



I found these beautiful Gloria Ortiz gold boots at El Corte' Ingles. They are quite unique and because they are gold, they go with everything.

Tip: I did find that Spanish shoes are a little bigger and wider. When shopping for shoes there, you may need to go up a size to find your perfect fit.



I was on the look out for red boots, but I couldn't find them. I happened to pass by a charity shop and found this pair for €4. How's that for a bargain.

Tip: If you find something in a charity shop for a good price, but it's not what you want or would ordinarily buy, rather spend that money on a glass of wine or tappas down the street. Don't waste your money, even if you think it's a good buy.



Madrid is really big on their high street brands. Zara, Mango, Desigual, Woman' Secret etc. They are all from Spain. Even if you think you know these stores, when you go to Madrid, pop in to see what they have. They often stock items you may not find in your home town.



I found these divine ruffle trousers at Zara. They may not be suitable for everyday wear, but it's a great alternative to the little black dress for the evening.
