Hola Everyone! I am writing you from Spain, land of sunshine, home of the churro’s and more importantly, mecca of the Inditext group… Where the Zara’s, Stradivarius and Massimo Dutti’s rule the streets along with their merciful opponent, Mango.
Not to forget that here, prices are a few euros cheaper than in the rest of the world. So as you can imagine, for a little tourist like me, the temptation is at its highest!
I am actually in Madrid, which I discovered last year for the first time. The “Indignados” have left the Puerta del Sol, but the city is still the same, beautiful and full of life…
This time, for my first day out in the city I decided to get lost in the streets and avoid the Inditex/Mango supremacy. This is how, after walking around the Calle de Fuencarral I discovered the most charming little vintage boutique: Lolita’s Closet.
Located in the Calle San Joaquin this boutique is worth passing by as not only it has a nice selection of vintage clothing for really affordable prices, but the owner is very friendly. She will gladly help you in your choice or simply have a chat. That’s how I learned about the origin of her treasures, they are sourced worldwide but especially in Asia. Hence the availability of small sizes.
