Barcelona

Standard

A few weekends ago I was in beautiful Barcelona. Having previously visited the city earlier this year and fallen in love with it, I was super excited to be back. This time a bit of vintage shopping was definitely a priority.

We headed to Carrer de la Riera Baixa, the main vintage shopping lane where every Saturday they have a street market. I was particularly excited to come across the Kilostore; back in London these are some of my favourite places to find retro gems at a great price and it’s been a while since I’ve been able to go to one! I can genuinely while away hours in such places but managed, more or less, to restrain myself this time and got a pair of subtly sparkly black trousers, French chic style, and a floral patterned dress. In De Faralaee, a little further down the street, there was more of a mix of old and new clothes. This being me, I instantly found the 5 and 10 euro bargain rail where I got a great 80s abstract print dress (definite wardrobe staple of mine). Also worth noting is the lovely Lullaby run by a super friendly couple where my friend got a unique original 1950s poncho, as well as Motel, probably my favourite shop on the street. If I could have bought everything in there I would have done – decorated in the style of a 50s motel room the range of items on offer were perfectly selected.

Whilst meandering around we came across Domingos, a wonderful little second hand shop with a range of clothing and some vintage homeware too. This was where I made my favourite purchase of the trip, a black silk full-length jumpsuit with sequin detail back. I love it as it is one of those outfits you can dress up or down, depending on the occasion and it is super comfy.

I also took the opportunity to stock up on plenty of shiny trinkets in Rosselló, an amazing bead shop on Carrer de L’Hospital, which should be appearing in my Etsy soon!
