It’s no secret that we all have a serious shopping habits. Even if you shaking off your head right now, you know the truth. We’re shoppers for life. When the paycheck comes, it's all about the big splurge, new clothes, restaurants, taxi ride (yeah, yeah guilty as charged) and after that first wave of throwing your money cause you're a rock star, you slow down. Instead of a new pair of jeans you're all the sudden interested in building your library with the latest Houellebecq book. Pasta at your favorite restaurant is forgotten and now you're exploring the vegan options at your grocery store. But you're still using a taxi and you shop. It doesn't matter what. You shop.

In the past years, there has been an emphasis on the importance of online retail but if you ask me, nothing can beat that good old feeling when you shop at the mall. There’s a comfort in shopping at the mall especially the new one like BIG FASHION is, which presents the biggest shopping center in the old part of Belgrade (8minutes by car from the city center) with more than 100 shops on two levels. Do I have to say how gorgeous is the new Zara store design? Or the terrace with the Danube view? Ideal for the leisure and lunch break. But let's get back to the theme.

Malls specifically have also excelled at providing shoppers with a sense of discovery and community that new options like online shopping simply lack. You know what you’re going to get when it comes to fit and quality and the products are easily accessible. You can actually experience the product, no need to wait for weeks for a product to arrive, you can shop instantly for an urgent occasion or you can return it easily which is not the case if you shop online. So online shopping may be today’s popular option, but it will never live up to all that the mall delivers and that's one of the main reasons I'm still a big fan of shopping malls.
Okay, okay I cheat with the apps by checking the stock at physical store but that's call the preparation.You gotta be in shaped before you're start hiking in the Alps, right? ;)

p.s. the whole look can be found at BIG FASHION shopping center, it's sale time so hurry up!
