Korean Shopping Haul

I had some trouble with my computer, so, I couldn’t blog for a while. I had a lot of plans but now I have to postpone it for a bit because of unexpected events currently happening in my life. Today, I will share a simple post about my shoppings in South Korea and when I have more time I will elaborate more on the items I have bought and of course the many shopping areas. However, I went shopping all around Seoul. It’s a shopping mecca! I went shopping in Hongdae, Edae, Myeondong, Garosugil and Jonggak underground. Underground shopping is amazing, you can find anything but for a cheaper price! I have bought several fashion items that are currently trending when it comes to Korean fashion, several skincare products and miscellaneous items. I regret not buying more skincare products but thankfully Korean cosmetics are easily attainable online. I made several photos of my daily shoppings in my apartment.

South Korea: Sinsa-dong Garosu-gil

I was very excited to visit Sinsa-dong Garosu-gil in Gangnam. Garosu-gil is known for its trendy boutiques and trendy people. I couldn’t wait to be left in awe and be inspired.  Shopping in Garosugil is quite expensive compared to its counterparts, Hongdae and Myeongdong. But the quality is made out of better quality and feels more durable. You can also find the 3 concept eyes store. I recommend you shopping for 3ce  makeup here because it’s more peaceful compared to the other stores. You can just look around at ease. The place is filled with well-dressed stylish people. I was told that photographers often take street snaps of these trendy adolescents and scout them for modelling. I didn’t see many photographers but one funny incident happened. When I left the 3 concept eyes makeup store I saw a photographer snapping away. But in front of her was this really old ahjusshi smoking. I was really confused. But when I looked to the corner I saw this really stylish guy posing. Long story short, she wasn’t taking photos of the old man at all. I just laughed.

The area also has many trendy cafés and restaurants. I have visited LINE FRIENDS Store & Café, where they sell these cute LINE FRIENDS macarons. I also planned to visit the Dore Dore Café, to eat some delicious rainbow cake but that plan unfortunately fell through. I did go to Mango Six. I saw this café many times in Korean drama, so, I definitely wanted to try their desserts and drinks. I ordered a blue mint lemonade drink and a waffle with berries and frozen yoghurt on top. They also sell the famous honey bread with whipped cream.

STYLENANDA Flagship Store & Haul

STYLENANDA is one of the leading fashion companies in South Korea. In 2005 the brand started out as an online store. Now, it has many offline shops throughout Asia. Stylenanda is by far one of my favourite fashion brands as well as their makeup line 3 Concept Eyes. I adore their unique fashion and makeup looks. So, I couldn’t let the chance slide by without visiting their flagship store in Hongdae. Especially, when Stylenanda’s site showcased their new autumn/winter line.

The flagship store is a huge three storey building. The building was decorated with promo shots of the beautiful Stylenanda model Sora Park. They even have a Stylenanda vending machine and a photobooth. I was very impressed. But once I went inside, I was kind of disappointed. I don’t know if I came at the wrong time but their stock was less than stellar. They hardly had any of the clothes which were promoted on their site and when I asked they said everything was already soldout. Kind of weird because their winter line wasn’t even five days old. Also, the items on their site were still available. What made it even weirder is that this is a flagship store! Why didn’t they have anything in stock? To be honest, it was really anticlimactic. I guess, I will have to stick to online shopping.

Although, I didn’t really find a lot of clothes that I liked. I did manage to purchase some items. Just a simple black sweater, cream colored shoes, a blue cap and a purple two piece outfit. I bought makeup from 3CE at another store but I will blog about that in the near future. I will also make a review about the quality of the clothing and makeup products.
