So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
Discover Barcelona’s fashion with Dress2b
With two ladies in the office it is safe to say that we commonly talk clothes. We don’t like to throw anyone under the bus but, even some of the guys get involved in the debate about platforms vs wedges and skinny jeans vs palazzos. The team here are savvy when it comes to shopping, so we were happy to hear about new online shopping initiative dress2b.
There are several reasons why we have high hopes for this fashion mecca, the main being that if you know exactly what you are looking for and are time short, you can search for a garment and be taken to a page of stores in Barcelona that stock exactly that. You can also shop by season, event or theme – again ideal for those that perhaps hate shopping in stores or simply want to look at different options before heading to a physical store. The purpose is to do exactly that, drive footfall to the actual store, though we do hope that this evolves into an online store.
So far dress2b has collaborated with over 43 stores and there are plans for this to expand to more! We like the way that each store has a profile, so you can easily grasp a feel of the aesthetic before shopping and did we mention that those that browse on dress2b and go to the store actually get discounts on selected item? Well now you know. You simply need to select an item that you like, send the discount coupon to an email address and print ( or save on your smartphone) and present in store to claim or show the code via your smartphone. Happy shopping!!!
