Miss Iggy goes shopcrazy

Being the savvy shopper that Miss Iggy is, she's excited to score some bargains at the year-end sales. In Vienna, the year-end sales start two days after Christmas (St. Stephen's Day is celebrated on 26th of December and is an official holiday). While most stores offer 30% to 50% discounts, some stores' prices even drop down to minus 80%. 

At fashion boutiques like Mango and H&M, you can expect long lines at the dressing rooms AND the cashiers. Patience is key in getting good bargains. For Miss Iggy, it's worth the wait.

While finding a the perfect purchase can be stressful, just walking on Vienna's festive shopping streets at night is entertaining.

omg! i looove H&M and mango! thankfully, our local mall has an H&M...i'm a big fan of their graphic tees. i recently bought two shirts at only $5 each, hehe. sometimes they have "friends & family" coupons that let you take 25% off your purchase. (uhmmm, shopaholic much? haha)

after-christmas sales rock...here, victoria's secret & bath & body works always hold their semi-annual sales after christmas. :P

karntner strasse looks gorgeous with all those lights! :)
