Istinye Park, Istanbul
waiting for Versace
I’m a real shopaholic!!! As H&M store is going to open doors in Sofia in March 2012, I had to go to the nearest H&M shop to buy the Versace products-so I went to Istanbul! I’ve been many times in this city and I love it! But this time I didn’t go sightseeing. However, I’m going to make another post with pictures of the city and tell you more about my experiences there.
Now, right to the point-the shopping! I went to one of the hugest malls in Istanbul (I don’t know if it is actually the hugest) Istinye Park. It is a luxury mall with many many brand shops! But as I entered the mall at about 1 o’clock, I run right to the H&M store! I thank the map of the mall for finding it for 15 minutes! So I entered the shop at about 1:15. The H&M shop there is HUGE! So I turned around and then I saw the crowd. About hundred women waiting for the Versace corner.My shopping there was in unexpected way. When I entered the crowd, which was enclosed, I saw a few ladies who shopped the Versace products. They had bracelets which let them do the shopping first but as I don’t live there I didn’t know about them. So, I don’t know how but I went from the back to the front row of the crowd. The shopping for ladies without bracelets started at 1:30. I thought that they will let as shop in small groups and I was happy because I was first. But no…. they let as in the Versace corner all together! Hundred women fighting for Versace You can’t choose models, or sizes, or prices.. you grab what you can! Actually I grabbed many things! The crowd was very insistent and firstly I got nervous, but then I saw two girls pulling one leggings and I started laughing!
Anyway, I’m happy of the shopping! And I don’t know how I got there on time! If I went 30 minutes later, maybe there would be left anything!
Did you experienced that too, while shopping for Versace???
P.S. These days I’m going to take photos with the stuff I bought from Versace for H&M.
