I fell in love with the McArthurGlen Designer Outlets long ago when I was lucky enough to visit the Serrvalle Centre & Novia Di Piave Centre in Italy last June (see my post about it all here) so of course I was so excited for a fun shopping day at the beautiful McArthurGlen Vancouver.
They have so many amazing brands (which of course all offer up to 70% off the regular price, which always make me a happy shopper) and the centre is so pretty to walk around in and explore, I just love that it is all outdoors!
I started my day heading right into the mix stopping by the amazing sculpture by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, it is breathtaking! It is also right beside SL (which is related to Secret Location where I worked as the Senior Buyer for 2 years-they carry the best brands from Simone Rocha to Anthony Vaccarello to David Koma, a must visit!) where I picked up a sparkling clutch by MAWI London ~which I photographed when I grabbed a coffee in the middle of the centre for a little mid-shopping pick me up.
I also visited the Pretty Things Flower Pop Up which just opened and is just beautiful! They have a huge selection of single flowers, bouquets and succulents~ you can never have enough flowers.
After my coffee break I stopped in at Thread + Copper and fell in love with so many pieces, and ended up picking out a lace top & mini skirt - so perfect for summer coming up.
After a day of shopping of course a girl needs to eat, and luckily McArthurGlen has the best pizza place right in the centre, Bibo - It is insanely delicious and I recommend everything on the menu! The ingredients are imported from Italy and everything is hand made and they make my absolute favourite Neapolitin style pizza...seriously yummy.
I had the best day at McArthurGlen Vancouver, and the great news is, so can you! They are giving away a $200 Shopping Spree, so make sure to visit their site here & fill out the giveaway form. Good Luck!
