I’d heard of this store before, but somehow I’d never actually gone there. For some reason it held this reputation in my mind, of being well. Not for me. Never thought I could be so wrong!
Smets is more than just a clothing store. They have the greatest design furniture and their own beautycorner. And yes. Clothes. But the most gorgeous, wishlisty things. Remember those IM sneakers that I put on my wishlist a while back? They have them. And they are even more stunning in real life so euhm. I want them?
The store itself excudes luxury. You walk in and you know that you will find the coolest new things. I mean, just look at that picture. At the left hand site, you can spot the beautycorner. They carry Bobbi Brown, Bumble and Bumble and I think just about every colour OPI you could ever wish.
I’m now a bit sad, because they had this perfect pinkish red colour… I totally should have bought i! Well, at least I took a picture so when I get to Brussels sometime, I can stop by. ^^
What else? They have the cutest stuff for iPhones/Smartphones. I almost lost it when I saw they had Rabito covers. I’d been looking for those, but well. They are kind of hard to get. That does sum up whatever they have at Smets; the coolest things you wouldn’t just find anywhere. I got two of those cutsie little bunnies, which I’ll be sharing somewhere in the near future. They are the best. Also, remember that I said I was starting a zoo? I think I might need to start charging entrance fees to enter my bedroom.
Of course it’s not just about the gadgets (though I have to say, they are awesomecakes!) but well. Kenzo, Isabel Marant (étoile), Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, … If you are looking for a specific fashion it item, chances are you’ll find it at Smets. I fell in love with the heels underneath. Just look at the perfectness of them, studs, turquoise and platform. Oh, and they’re Louboutin.
I absolutely loved the shopping experience at Smets. I must say at first I was overwhelmed and a bit taken aback. And you know, just a bit apprehensive. My personal experiences walking into stores which sell the unique stuff, sales associates won’t always be the most helpful, or even nice for that matter. I’m not going to name any stores here, just know that if you don’t look like you have thousands of dollars to spent, they won’t even look at you twice. The people at Smets though were the nicest! No haughty personel, just friendly down to earth people, helping you out wherever you need help. I love this, it just makes shopping that much more fun, right? ^^ It just good publicity as well! I know myself that it is majorly important to treat your customers well, because that’s just how you will get returning and happy people. So yay, thumbs up for them.
If you’re ever in the neighbourhood, make sure you stop by. The store is a beauty, and I’m sure they’ll be seeing more of me.
Have a great day!
