Lifestyle by Noventa Di Piave

Hi everyone, how are you today? It’s time to make happy my dear fashionistas with new fashion outfit post. Today I will share with you two special outfit which I did with my friends from McArthurGlen Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet. Lately, I notice an increasing number of questions related to the “approval” of someone’s taste and style. Questions: “Do I have style?”, “Did I dress for some of the latest fashion trends?” And all other questions are sometimes completely unnecessary. First, we are all human beings and each of us is special in some way. Sometimes you need to wear clothes in which you feel nice and comfortable.

Fashion is a game, it’s something more than you see in a shop. A lot of work, effort and dreams are found in each of these clothes. The clothes will be sold once, but will the buyer return again? This is a question that everyday fashion designers ask themselves who sign those small labels which we carry around the neck.

Label? What is it? Is it just a piece of cotton cloth with the name of a brand or something? In today’s consumer society, the label unfortunately represents only one aspect of a new division of society… The label can not tell us whether someone is a good or bad person, but today there are people who like to love to put the labels on other people on the basis of the brands they carry. These are, in my opinion, mentally poor people who have nothing to offer, and are hiding behind their small branded labels that “mean life to them!”. On the other hand labels for me represent just quality and beauty of imagination of fashion designer.

We all love beautiful things, on the other hand, beauty is in the eye of the observer. Not all things have the same value for each of us. Nice things are always there to remind us that there is that little light at the end of the tunnel. In most cases people associate beautiful things and quality with high prices, but it does not have to do everything in life, which is nice, it’s expensive! That’s why there are outlets that help people who do not have a very “deep” pocket to buy some nice and quality things, while taking advantage of budgets that stand out for shopping.

After publishing my previous posts about the Noventa Di Piave outlettravel post and fashion outfit post, I realized that many people are not familiar with the way they sell in outlet shops. I’m going to try to explain, and I’m sure I might be a little more repetitive, but do not offend me!

Let’s explain the “life” flow of a collection of a brand that practices factory outlet sale. First, one latest collection comes to the official store of that brand, after a while the same goods come to a seasonal discount – sale. Goods left after seasonal final sales and goods that are damaged which are not sold in official stores are sent to the outlet store. The way of sale in the outlet store is the same as in the regular store, the collection always follows the current season, so if a regular spring / summer collection is sold in the regular store, the outlet shop is also selling the same spring/summer collection, but from the previous season.

When goods arrive in the outlet, it is considered a new outlet collection and usually the starting prices in the outlet are the same as the prices that those products had at the last (final) reduction in the official store or sometimes they start with more discounted price.

In the outlet there are also periods of seasonal discounts, and then you can buy products at a discount of up to 70% (sometimes there are also discounts and more than 70% in the case of a collection older than few of years ago, goods with major damages or some special offers) from the original price of the product in the store. In the outlet you can buy really nice and quality things, even if you are buying in the period of great savings, the savings can be drastically higher.

There is no need to run blindly for fashion because there are only few groups of people who can follow all of these fashion trends on time, especially if you are reading fashion magazines, you need a small fortune to be able to buy all those nice things that you can see on the pages of those famous magazines. Magazines, blogs, online portals and all other fashion literature should be used exclusively as inspiration.

If you have not been able to buy a fashion piece now, irrespective of whether it is a piece of clothing or fashion accessories, do not despair when you will find this thing at a big discount or in outlet. How many times I have found myself complaining about a good jacket, after a couple of days I forget that I wanted it at all… After a while I come to the same or similar jacket on a discount and then I buy. You can never buy all the things you want…

The first outfit you have had the opportunity to see on the previous pictures is a great combination for every modern man. Beautiful, street-style elegance complemented by elements of classic men’s fashion, such as a simple stripped shirt, which is simply a piece that every man should have in his closet. Jacket is an extremely important fashionable piece for every man, jacket is a mirror of every man. That’s why it’s always important to choose a piece that will be classic, stylish and can be used for more occasions, in most cases for some everyday use for work or some other daily activities, to some more ceremonial formal occasions.

A man can maybe save a little bit on other pieces, but when it comes to a jacket, the man should be a little “spender” and think about more.

All Roads Lead to Noventa Di Piave…

Hi guys, welcome to the new post. Today I have something special for you. Who follows me on social networks knows that I got a call couple weeks ago from the McArthurGlen Group of outlets to visit their outlet near Venice – Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet. I accepted the invitation with great pleasure and on occasion I took the opportunity to refresh my wardrobe.

In this special series of posts there will be three posts, today’s one where you will find out something new about the outlet and a special event known as #FashionFestival and two special outfit post with 4 fashion combinations that will help you to get some ideas for your ideal fashion combination. Before I start, I would like to thank once again my friends from the McArthurGlen Group for the invitation and that you have surprised me with a special visit to the outlet that kept my heart.

Honestly, I can’t remember whether I used to write to you on a blog or on social media before a information that I spent a certain period of my life in Italy. I lived in the area of Veneto in a city that is known as a protector of students, good fun and arts – Padua. What’s the connection with this outlet? Perhaps at first sight that information do not have anything to do with it, but if I tell you that Padova is about a 30-minute drive from Venice, you may associate that little Marko went countless times to an eternal city on the water known as Venice. 🙂

When you are a student, of course you want to dress nice and to be always in trend with the latest fashion trends, but you do not have a lot of money in your pocket, it’s logical to use some other wise ways to get nice things for less money like buying clothing in second hand shops, shopping at outlets or on open markets, the shopping on open markets is especially exciting in Italy when you are trying to find some nice labels for good prices. Each of these options has its advantages and disadvantages, but when you do not have a lot of money, and you are a huge fan of fashion like me, you have to do some “fashion digging” and satisfy your fashion appetites in various ways.

On one occasion when I went to the supermarket to buy something to eat I noticed the ad for the Noventa Di Piave outlet. I wrote in my phone the name of the outlet and as soon as I came home I started with the researching, I was guided by the fact that this outlet advertised in Padova must be somewhere nearby…

After a short researching on the Internet, I decided to take the first weekend off for a day to visit Venice and go to that outlet. I wrote a list of what I need of new things in the wardrobe and left the list on the table near door, until the right time for Venice to come. What would I give for my careless student days to back again when I only had to worry about studying…

Finally that Saturday came, I started my day fresh, restful and full of enthusiasm, I entered the train and started my adventure with 130 euros in pocket just for shopping. I remember that first visit as if it were yesterday, that fear I will not throw money on the shuttle bus to the outlet and maybe I will not find anything that I need, but I decided to try my luck.

Somehow I found the way to a special shuttle bus that drives directly to the outlet, the outlet is relatively close, around thirty minutes drive from Venice. For the first time it is a bit difficult to find a bus stop that goes directly to the outlet, so when you are planning the visit to Noventa Outlet please read carefully this link. There are couple detailed explanations how you can reach the outlet with all kind of transports.

McArthurGlen outlets were not unknown to me, because I went with my parents and sister to a couple of their outlets in other European countries, but this was the first outlet which I found out on my own and that’s why I was most proud at that time.

In their outlets you can always find your favorite brands with constant discounted prices from 30% to 70% throughout the year. Noventa Outlet is special because of its beautiful architectural beauty that is enriched with mosaics and frescoes inspired by Venetian palaces. In Noventa Di Piave outlet you have over 150 stores and I’m sure you can always find something special for yourself or your dear ones.

The Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet has evolved a lot since my last visit, many new and interesting shops have opened their doors in this paradise for real fashion lovers. My first visit was successful at the Guess store, I managed to catch a good deal and bought jeans, sweatshirts and two t-shirts for 60-70 euros, and in Nike I bought nice sneakers for 60 euros, it was just a fate that only my size left at the time.

After the purchase, I sat down and I wrote down on paper and calculated how much I would pay it all in Serbia and maybe in other countries in Europe and I came to the conclusion that without 300 euros I would not be able to buy all these things in Serbia. A lot of people in Serbia and some European countries have different prejudices about outlet and what kind of things are selling there and also the famous question about the quality of those things.

This time I found my happiness in Cesare Paciotti’s shop and I managed to find several pairs of shoes that can be purchased at significantly cheaper prices than those which are now in Serbia and also in some countries in Europe as well.

I’ll try to explain to you little a bit the concept of sales in outlet. What kind of goods are sold in outlet? Outlets officially sell goods remaining from the previous season, it is sorted and compared to the season that is currently active either for spring / summer or autumn/winter  depends on actual collections in official retail stores. Prices in the outlet are officially reduced from 30% to 70%; in some cases, the goods can be reduced by 80% and 90% if they are the last piece or the last pair when we are taking about footwear or some accessories or if the goods are little damaged with some visible signs of sort of damage.

Almost all fashion brands have their own factory outlet stores, from luxury fashion brands such as Prada, Salvatore Feragamo, Dsquared2, Fendi, Burberry and many other luxury brands have their own factory store or outlet channel of sale.

Also, some middle-class brands and street fashion brands have their own outlet stores, so a great balance has been achieved, and everyone can always find something nice at the outlet depends on your budget.

There is an opinion that luxury brands are expensive and outlet … Of course, they are not cheap, but there are certain cases when you can find some things extremely cheap. For that I’m a real fashionable “hunter”. I will tell you my two best experiences, I will not mention the brands, but I will give you the example of prices so you can keep in mind the relationship between price, quality and the benefits of buying as well which is good for you as a buyer.

Trench and Backpack: Coach; T-shirt and Trousers: Dsquared2 – Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet.

The first example – a jacket. On one occasion I bought a winter feather winter jacket in one of the McArthurGlen outlets, branded for 150 euros, I also took tax free (VAT Refund for NON EU countries residents) and the jacket eventually cost me 130-135 euros. The first retail price of a jacket in the store was about 2000-2200 euros (I know this information because I know the approximate price), when it came to the outlet, its price was about 1000 euros, there was one size plus plus it had one problem. Zipper was broken, so it was almost impossible to close the jacket, but it remained a slider at least. The jacket was beautiful, the color, the model, it was my size, but with the little problem…

I just sit and think about a little… A nice and high quality winter jacket in Serbia with down feathers, fine wool and cashmere and fur on the hood costs a lot … This jacket costs about 130 euros, the material is good quality, and the zipper is possible to be repaired by a good tailor. I risked it and bought it, as soon as I came to Serbia I fixed my jacket and carried it regularly for 3,4 seasons and I still wear it occasionally. Now it has been in my wardrobe for 8 or 9 years now…

Another example… The finest leather gloves also branded, firm, with the cashmere layer inside special for winter, cost about 250-275 euros in the store, retail price… I paid them just 15 euros, you read it well 15 euros and bought two pairs of them in two different colors. Shoes for winter, retail price of 600-650 euros in official retail store in outlet I found it just for 100 euros, but they were not my size. So, the shoe maker has done its magic and today I am gladly wearing those shoes when it’s cold and slippery on the streets in winter season.

I love beautiful things and I always try to care about them well and keep them for a couple of seasons, no one has found money on the road to be able to buy constantly new things.

The main reason of my visit this time was a celebration of the 10th birthday of the Noventa outlet and to enjoy in the Fashion Festival (#FashionFestival) once again with my friends from the McArthurGlen group. What is the Fashion Festival? Fashion Festival is a special event when selected stores at McArthurGlen outlets on the territory of Italy give special additional discounts up to 70%. This is a great opportunity to use just to refresh your wardrobe and surprise yourself or your dear ones with interesting fashion pieces or some fashion accessories: shoes, some other leather goods, jewelry and other fashionable deacons.

This year I have been invited to be one of the fashion ambassador for Noventa Di Piave Designer outlet and at least with a little help of my dear friends from Noventa Outlet. I tried to give you some inspiration, so I chose 4 dress combinations that I think you should have in the wardrobe this season.

I hope that at least I helped you a bit and you might get ideas for some of your perfect fashion combinations for this autumn/ winter season.
