BRUSSELS // Primark, Nike Store and Hunkemöller clearance for us.

If you happen to live in Brussels, you probably already know it, several shops will open in the next few days and especially on the New Street. The most important of them is Primark. What is a capital city be without the famous Irish brand in it ? It’s a city where shopaholics are not totally happy. Do small prices make happiness ? Of course !

But what about the quality ? During my stay in London, I had the opportunity to buy a black fluid shirt absolutely gorgeous that I still wear nowadays (it was two years ago and a button only disappeared now), a cute sweater (that I still wear, I like to keep) and a blazer way too flashy and that I didn’t wear enough to judge. My best acquisition was my rosy nude makeup bag that I only got for 3€. I’m so looking forward to my next useful and useless purchases. Primark will open on the 10th of December.

Another arrival, the Nike Store which will also open in December. I’m not specially attached to the brand but from now on, whenever I want to buy a new pair of Air Max, I won’t have to choose from the five models Foot Locker actually has and will enjoy a larger variety in a proper Nike Store. It’s good to see that Brussels gets new brand dedicated stores, after Timberland who just opened next to the New Street. Of course, we’re far away from the five floors Nike store of some cities, but that’s okay for now.

Finally, I want to talk to you about the Hunkemöller Outlet Factory that will take place at Brussels Expo from 10/12 to 13/12. The entry price in 3€ and it’s not possible to try so you have to know your size but it’s a clearance, which means there will be real bargains. You can find the facebook event here.

All those openings and events are pleasing me a lot but I kind of regret that they take place after the Christmas I’m having with my friends. Primark is such a gold mine for small budget accessories. But it won’t keep me from enjoying hours in there in five days only.
