Whether you’re navigating unknown streets, haggling in markets, or browsing a boutique, sometimes the best shopping is accomplished when locals point out the unknown spots that aren’t mentioned in your guidebook. Join our live Twitter chat on Shopping Like a Local this Wednesday, September 18th from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT. Our panel of experts will share their favorite go-to stores in the world, tips on scoring a deal, and stories about the myriad of fashion triumphs (and mistakes) that they’ve made on their travels. Find out about global street style from the insiders.
Join the conversation on Wednesday, September 18th from 2pm to 3pm EDT.
