broomstick skirts

Post by Contessa » Thu Jan 19, 2006 3:19 am

Does anyone know where to shop for skirts in PV at a reasonable cost? We're staying in Zona Romantica... I know there are incredible shops, just looking for a large variety... also strappy shoes too!

Thanks all... Sandra

I bet you could find your shoes at Viva- 274 Basilio Badillo . Or visit the website : www.vivacollection.com :)

Other than shoes at Viva and hand made huaraches (sp?), the quality of footwear in Mexico is...uh, how do I say this tactfully...not so great. They tend to be cheaply made, and don't wear well. Save shoe buying sprees for PayLess or (dare I say it?) even WalMart at home.

I did see broomstick skirts of all colours, sizes and patterns at Woolworth when I was there in Oct/Nov (couple blocks up from the Malecon, I *think* the cross street is Allende but don't quote me). Had I dropped a couple more dress sizes before my last trip I would have been in heaven, I think they were only around 120 pesos each. Definitely a bargain even if I took them home and they fell apart. LOL

Speaking of Woolworth, GREAT place to buy makeup cheap! I picked up about 4 Maybelline lipsticks for 30 pesos each - same ones at home run about 9-10 dollars! If you can tune out the blaring music, it's a fun place to shop, that's for sure.

Uhmmm ... I don't want to sound ignorant but what is a broomstick skirt and what does it look like? I've never heard of one before.
