I sensed you liked it so I decided to write a little more about shopping wisely in the US.
Picture from Premium Outlet in Orlando Florida-I tried to capture the mallcop on his segway.
What husband & I always do is to go to Premium Outlet´s website. Here you can see where the nearest outlet ( often there are several nearby) is located. Premium Outlet´s are little “towns”. There are a lot of stores in each outlet. Ofcourse the american brands are the cheapest so you can save a lot of money on brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors & BCBG Max Azria. But they also have a lot of european brands like Burberry, Prada, Etro, Marni, Giorgio Armani, Armani Exchange where you pay a lot less than in their usual stores. The reason that it is so cheap is that the brands own the stores so they do not have to share the profit with anyone else & in US they tend to focus on selling more for less. That means that the stores look like a normal store & not a huge mess with a million different styles. Premium Outlets are also in Europe now & around the world ( they are usually not as good as the american ones ). You can check it out here.
Here I am outside the Ralph Lauren store at an Orlando Premium Outlet last month. Don´t I look truly happy?!!! Hahaha
