Euro shopping experience

In 18 days I'm heading off to Europe on holiday, I'll be going to beachy Porec, Croatia first to work on my holiday tan, then off to Venice, followed by Milan. Milan, the shopping capital of the world has the worlds oldest shopping centre, the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle II. We all know that Italian women love their fashion and Milan is the "alta mode" or high fashion capital of Italy, streets are laced with Versace, Prada, Gucci and Valentino stores, indulging every shoppers dream come true. On my shopping list for Milan is a pair of leather gloves, a leather handbag and some Italian leather shoes! I'll be posting pics so keep watching this space!

After Milan its on to Lucerne, Switzerland to indulge in masses of Swiss chocolate and rest up before heading to Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul wasn't quite part of the plan but our flight is stopping over there and after doing some research, I found it is a shoppers paradise! In Istanbul they have the Grand Bazaar, which is an indoor market comprising of about 5000 shops and getting close to 200 000 visitors everyday. The Bazaar sells everything from rip off Dolce & Gabanna to jewellery to carpets and of course shoes! I've found some awesome Turkish boots that I just have to have, they're real leather and hand embroidered. Not your everyday type of boot but I will still have a pair nonetheless, I still cant decide if I want the long or ankle boot, any suggestions?
