Seoul Shopping guide part 1

19 Sep


We want to give our readers some shopping tips in Seoul.

Let’s start off with Myeong-Dong the most well known shopping area in the city. It peaks in the evenings when everyone is off work. Music is bursting out on the walking street and it’s often K-pop or other uplifting party music. We’ll guide you to our favourite stores in the area…

You’ve probably visited Forever 21 before if you’ve been in the US. Then it’s no suprise that this is the best cheap american chain to get fast fashion. Some thing is of quite bad quality but it dosen’t matter. You can really find nice stuff for good prices here and it is definatly worth a visit. The place is PACKED with tourists and Koreans so if you don’t like shopping when it’s crowded you should avoid going on weekends and during evenings. Website: http://www.forever21.co.kr/

Pancoat is a cute Korean brand. Very kawaii! Here you can get the cutest colorful sweaters and tee’s with animal prints. The pancoat signature print is the duck but you can get hedgehogs, pigs and other cuties too! Don’t miss out!

We love Spicy colour! This is the store for all korean hipsters with very stand out in the crowd-like fashion. It’s not that expensive even though we would consider it high end. Find that bright coloured purse here or a fab dress for going out. Definatley worth a visit!When in Korea, you can’t miss out on all the beauty stores. Seriously it’s like impossible. They are almost as common as 7/11. And there are so many different brands! Etude house is one of our favorites. Daria from 2ne1 is the current face for the brand. You will recognize the store as a pink house and we got immdiatley drawn into the cuteness. Get pretty cheap korean make up here or try their fake lashes, they are the most comfortable ones we’ve ever tried. There are several Etude house’s in Myeong-Dong and everyone of them is PACKED with korean girls who tries to get a hold of the latest beauty products.

Skin food is another Korean beauty brand. It’s like food for your skin, hence the name ^^ Try the beer cream, the egg white pore cleanser or the strawberry hand cream. This place is amazing and we get hungry from shopping there ^_^
