sales-bagsJuly is all about sales. And while I really don’t need anything at all (in fact, the one thing I truly do need would be an extra wardrobe), I will probably have a look at all my favourite shops to see if they have anything left from my wishlist, in my size (and at a stiff discount).

As summer kicked in late (euphemism), I’m guessing all shops will have a huge stock left. And even though some have already started clearing their stock room via private sales over the last few weeks, the official sales only start on Monday July 1.

Uptown I’ll pop into the new Village Verve to check if they still have that gorgeous Dagmar summer dress in my size. On my way to Avenue Louise, I’ll check what No Concept has to offer, followed by Louise 54. I love that shop for their great selection, but obviously I can’t afford most of what they sell. Sales times are different though, we’ll see.

I usually end up in Zara Home as well, stocking up on candles and peculiar coffee cups (I seem to have started a collection). I avoid the high-end boutiques on Boulevard de Waterloo, but will have a peek at Bensimon’s and the Kenzo boutique (love their knitwear) down Rue de Namur.

After all this, I guess a lunch/coffee break is in order. The new Jat’ Café could be the ideal location to rest my legs for a bit, before walking down to the shops around Dansaert.

In the city centre, Icon is on top of my list. I’m not eyeing anything in particular, but during sales I always spot things I didn’t see throughout the season. Hunting and Collecting will get a visit too, for the same reason (and perhaps another Carven skirt, love them). And I’ll check Espace Bizarre for more home deco, because I like everything they have in store.

Probably followed by another coffee break at AM Sweet.

That’s the plan, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be popping in and out of many other boutiques as well. What about you?

    Aaah no: I think you may be a little ‘Brussels-centric’. Consider this:
    Eurostar to London, 88 euros return.
    Then you have all the shopping in London, which, whether during sales or not, is about 30% cheaper than Brussels. Plus, much MUCH funkier shops, and the ranges available are much MUCH better than anything in Brussels.
    Plus, dining that is so far superior to anything Brussels has to offer it beggars belief (especially in that I remember when London was the culinary embarrassment of the western world).
    Oh, and free entrance to some of the best museums and galleries anywhere.
    So think on for the sales in January or next summer (usually start mid-June).
