I am not sure what kind of clothes you are looking for,

anyway, you won't have a problem in finding shops

in the so called shopping line Portal del Angel - Passeig de Gracia - Diagonal

outlets in Girona Street

or shops in Gracia district,

you can choose some ideas

If you like Zara there is one on nearly every street.Also there is a top shop.

There are some really lovely shoe shops around the Ramblas area (Great it you have small feet) but with me having size 7s its sometimes a proble.

You will love just wandering around its great and the atmosphire is Fantastic,just watch your bag and purse like you would at home.

In the old days, having UK size 7 shoes was a problem (I know, I always bought shoes on trips to England) but Spanish women are getting taller and their feet are getting longer so size 7(40) is now fairly easy to find. It's the small sizes that are becoming difficult I am told.

Portal del Angel is a street full of mid-range fashion shops. Carry on down Portal del Angel and you'll find chains and boutiques also on Portaferrissa. Pelai has chains (incl C&A) and also lots of shoe shops.There's a big Zara and a big H&M on Passeig de Gracia just above Plaça Catalunya.

For more individual designs: Banys Nous; also El Born area (near Picasso Museum) though I think they tend to be pricier.
