This past week I was able to visit the SecretCloset Outlet.
My first impression started from the outside; the building is beautiful! It is located right near the San Niccolò area and was very easy to walk to from Palazzo San Niccolò. Even though I went to do work, I felt like a high class luxury shopper having to be buzzed into the building. Once inside it is set up similar to a showroom, but for a majority of the shoes there was only one pair left. The SecretCloset includes brands like Steve Madden, Jeffrey Campbell, Buffalo, UGG, Naked Wolf, and Dr. Martens.

The discounts on the shoes were amazing! All of the shoes were anywhere from 30% to 80% off of the original price (end of season styles). These particular shoes were all from the winter collections from these brands, and the store changes the shoes every week. I knew it would be hard to work for a company that specializes in some of my favorite shoes, but with these great prices I’m going to end up going home with a much heavier suitcase!

To get a pass to enter the SecretCloset, you can contact the Reception desk in Palazzo San Niccolò to get one! It is a free, exclusive pass that anyone can get! Once you visit once, you can ask the workers there for a membership card that allows you to come back whenever you want. The card is free, but takes a few weeks to receive. The closet is only open on Friday and Saturday for right now, but will open for more hours in the spring and summer. To keep up to date with the new arrivals and sales, follow us on Instagram!
