I shop everywhere more or less. Let me share with you some of the places I have been shopping this season.
MQ St Eriksplan (January 2 2011)
Here I bought a shirt made by Emilio. It is called Confirm Block Shirt. The original price was 499kr but I got it for 249kr.
Emilio Confirm Block Shirt, 249kr
BRANDS Factory Outlet (January 5 2011)
Here I bought shoes made by Fred Perry. It cost 499kr Outlet Price. In the shop it cost 799kr. But it could also be 499kr at these shops when they have sales.
Fred Perry Sneakers 499kr
MQ Solna Centrum (January 7 2011)
A long time ago say from 2002-2006 I used to live in solna. Then Solna centrum was my place to shop for a few things. Anyway I still find time to go back to solna every now and then.
I bought two tops from MQ Solna Centrum. Granade Grandpa Sweater by EMILIO for 149kr and Commander Check Shirt also by Emilio for 249kr.
Grandpa Sweater by EMILIO, 149kr
Emilio Shirt, 249kr
Intersport Barkarby (January 7 2011)
I do shop at Intersport Vällingby and Barbarby depending on where I am and what I found. I bought this Jacket. Altitude Tribute 8848 Jacket for 2900kr. They said the original price was 3500kr. I know that if I waited until after winter I could get it cheaper but what is the use of waiting when I needed the shirt now? And maybe at the end of winter they wouldn’t have my size left. So I bought it anyway.
Altitude Tribute 8848 Jacket for 2900kr
Clas Ohlson Vällingby (January 2 2011)
I bought reseadapter eu.uk for 39kr and armbandsklocka for 199kr. They want me to believe that the clock’s original price was 599kr. Who will buy that for 599kr? Please!
I bought the reseadapter because I ordered a hair clipper from the UK and they didn’t realise they had to send something usable in Sweden.

Feel Unique, UK
The hair clipper was from http://www.feelunique.com . They are in the UK.
Stadium Outlet Barkarby (January 3rd 2011)
Bought 3 basketball tops for 50kr each. I don’t play basketball but I figure I can wear these topes inside the house or during summertime.
Soc Stadium T shirt, Stadium Outlet, 50kr
Stadium by IKEA
I went here trying out winter jackets. It is amazing how they tied the NORTHFACE Jacket to security units. It’s the same in Stadium everywhere I guess as I have seen these before in Vällingby. I asked one of the sales girl and she told me that people steal the jackets. I was like, but you have security locks on them, she said that wasn’t enough, that people steal them anyway.
Well she took one of them off and I tried the Northface winter jacket. I like them but they were not as comfortable as the 8848 I had tried on at Intersports. That’s why I went back later to buy the Tribute 8848 jacket. Lighter, dryer and more comfortable. I don’t get too cold in the winter so 8848 is perfect for what I have been longing for.
But at this stadium I still bought 2 pairs of winter socks for 99kr.
Winter socks from Stadium by Ikea 2pairs for 99kr
IKEA (January 3rd 2011)
I bought Patrull Badkars at Ikea for 45kr a piece. I bought 2. for reasons not yet known I ended up buying Tolsby Ram2 too. They cost 9kr each. No pictures available.
MQ Sollentuna (January 2 2011)
I went to Sollentuna because of Jack and Jones but I stopped by here to buy a Fred Perry Top for 419kr. The original price was 599kr. This is so funny anyway because the outlet price for the same shirt is 399kr. So if you need a Fred Perry Shirt and you are not ready to pay 599kr, take a swing and get it at Brands Outlet Barkarby. Same T shirt cost 399kr. But you have to think about the cost of gas anyway and probably also plan to do other shopping to compensate for the long drive if you live far away from the Outlet.
Fred Perry, MQ Sollentuna 419kr
Nike Factory Store, Barkarby Outlet
Here I bought InterMilan shirt for 210kr. I wanted to buy boots (not football boots) but I couldn’t find one. What a scandal! I mean you can’t buy a Nike footwear-boot at NIKE Factory store. Factory store? Really?
I bought a pair at Stadium by IKEA just before Christmas but I gave it away to my nephew during my Christmas holiday somewhere Abroad. It cost 900kr OR 899kr but I as kind enough to give it away because my nephew couldn’t use the other shoes I gave him. He has quite big feet.
So I came back and couldn’t find the NIKE BOOTS anyway in Stockholm! That explains my trip to Timberland Solna Centrum.
Inter Milan Shirt 210 kr
Jack and Jones Sollentuna
I bought some shirts at JJ Galleria before I travelled but I gave them away Abroad. So I came back and headed to Jack and Jones Sollentuna. I bought these shirts/ tops:
Jack and Jone T shirt, about 100kr
Jack and Jone T shirt, about 140kr
Jack and Jone T Shirt, about 140kr
Timberland Solna Centrum (January 7 2011)
These pairs of boots cost 1699kr but I bought them for 1189kr. It is still expensive but the girl told me to see it as an investment. I will try to remember that everytime I put them on.
Timberland Men's Boot, 1189kr
When I bought these shoes I knew I was done with shopping for this month as far as shoes and clothes are concerned. I mean my closet is always full and jam-packed.

NOW, 2011 can begin
During my last visit Abroad I must have given away more than 20 different shirts and tops that I really like. Even then I gave away loads of other shirts and tops that I didn’t like to have any more.
When I came back to Sweden I saw that my closet was still full of office-types of shirts. That’s good but I wanted more. I would like to change my dress mode a little bit. Now I’m going to wear jeans and jeans top.
I bought 4 pairs of jeans Abroad. They cost like 300kr in Swedish krona. It is cheaper for me to even shop Abroad but I didn’t make it a priority during my recent visit.
I have never thought of saving money by shopping Abroad. I mean who takes a plan Abroad to shop? You cannot always do that, so that’s why I decided to always bloom where I have been planted.
