Somerset Collection - Troy

Somerset Mall (or the Somerset Collection as it is officially named) is a shopping destination for people all over Michigan and beyond.

I remember when it expanded and re-opened in 1996 with the Skywalk connecting the two parts of the mall across Big Beaver Road. I grew up going to Southland Mall about an hour south of Somerset, so I remember being shocked by the fashion and prices when I first went there at the age of thirteen. I distinctly remember a large pair of fur boots for over $300. Although I still don't like large fur boots, I do enjoy many of the stores there now. This is a great place for upscale shopping. It is the type of mall that people dress up to visit. The main department stores are Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Some of my favorite stores to window shop are LK Bennett, Anthropologie, Cole Haan, Kate Spade, Tiffany, and Sephora.

I recently got to spend the morning there with 3 friends, where we had a great time and I even bought a new item from Wolford. Even if you're not a huge shopper, it is nice to meet someone for lunch and walk around this mall. The natural light, statues, and water features are nice to veiw. The people watching isn't too bad either!  I especially recommend visiting during the holidays.  The decorations are amazing, and there are so many dressed-up people bustling around the mall.
