I look for great merchandise online, but one website has become a staple in my search for factory outlets: http://www.styled247.com –
Styled 24/7 has information for both men and women and offers guidance on shopping all over the world for fashion outlets and stores. If you need guidance on purchasing jewelry, blouses, vintage clothing, Styled 24/7 has an article to give you the best tips and tricks on what to find and where to find it.
Wherever you are in the world, Styled 24/7 has a guide for the best markets from Asia to North America as well as specific cities like Melbourne in the Australia page.
Now, being from New York, I clicked on North America and found that finding outlets around New York is much easier with a map at http://www.styled247.com/factory-outlets-in-north-america/ – Just enter the street, city, state, zip or country and the map will return the nearest outlets!
