I haven’t done a haul post for a long time!
A few weeks ago I went shopping literally 4 days straight with my unnie who came to visit from Singapore with her family, bringing them around to all the good shopping areas. I told myself that in those 4 days, I am absolutely not allowed to buy any clothes, better not step into Zara, and even considered bringing no cash so that I’m limited to just using my debit card.
Lo and behold, I did end up buying quite a few things here and there, but I didn’t buy even one piece of clothing (except for a few tank tops for my brother… so that doesn’t count!!).
I bought mostly accessories and nail polishes and spent below $200ish on accessories, which is pretty good because that is how much I usually spend in Zara alone T_T
Plus, a lot of the more expensive pieces were things on my ‘wish list’ for a long time, but couldn’t find. I really think shopping is like a long-term treasure hunt. Even if you know exactly what you want to buy, it could take up to a few years to find that item in the perfect color, style, and price. Then, once you find that item, it is like finding a little treasure.
This is part 1 of the haul post. Part 2 is all the things I bought from Etude. This post was getting real long, so I’ll finish the rest next time!
SSFW Accessories in Myeongdong (명동)
1. Paper clip wristband bracelet $20
2. Gold chain black wristband bracelet $12
3. Silver and gold Star Earrings $6 each
4. Gold bracelet $10
I’ve been wanting some clip on wristbands for a long time but couldn’t find anything nice for a reasonable price.
The paper clip ones also came in a black band with silver paperclips. My unnie pointed out that black paper clips were a lot more unique, so I got those ones.
I saw the exact same ones before at Aland (in Myeongdong) for $40 before!
I wore two of these in my Dorky Rocker Chic look.
1. Black spots on translucent plastic glasses $10 from Ewha Women’s University shopping street (이대)
2. White and blue polka dot ribbon hair tie $5 from Myeongdong (명동)
3. Big hoop gold earrings $3 from Express Bus Terminal (고속터미널)
4. Brown mini belt headband $5~ from Ewha Women’s University shopping street (이대)
I super love big hoop earrings. The bigger the better!
You might not be able to tell, but these hoops are HUGE. They are like 3/4 the size of the headband!
I also have 2 other huge ones — one silver, one crystal studded. They aren’t as popular nowadays, but I still love them anyways.
Long plastic chain robot necklace $25 from Ewha Women’s University shopping street (이대)
A Big Bang and 2ne1 style necklace — bright, colorful, flashy, and fun.
AND it’s lightweight! The most important thing when buying long large size pendant necklaces is that it doesn’t feel like you are lugging metal chains around your neck.
I’ve been wanting one for a loooong time but you don’t find these kinda things easily, at a reasonable prices.
This necklace was from a little store on the streets of Eedae. They had a bunch of Superman, big kissing lips, mechanical looking big plastic pendant necklaces.
A girl who walked into the store with her friend was like ‘Hey, this store is so YG!’ (Big Bang and 2ne1 are both from YG).
The owner said he hand makes all of his pieces, though I’m sure that means he just assembles the pieces. I doubt he made that robot himself!
This is my favorite item from my haul!
Hopefully I’ll be able to use many of these in upcoming looks ^^
I saw these hats in Myungdong and went totally crazy. They were in their own individual display cases at the window. There were only one, no price tags, and I was guessing it wasn’t even on sale, but I was drooling outside the window like a child looking into a candy store T__T
If I could own both of these hats, I would put them up on a display case next to my bed and fall asleep admiring them every night T____T
I was roaming around the Lotte Department store food section and saw this yummy looking chocolate tart. It reminded me a lot of Chinese egg tarts — which I miss a lot! T_T
Also had a cookies and cream cake from Paris Baguette with my unnie and her family for her bday ^^
Just love sweets and desserts!
PS. I really want to thank you those of you who leave comments for me, especially my regular readers.
I’m used to working together with a staff team for Aheeyah, where it was very interactive with a lot of us, really like family and friends.
Now that I’m doing this blog by myself now, it just gets kind of lonely sometimes T_T I’m sorry if I sound a bit like a needy child in my last post asking for comments T__T
Your comments remind me there are people I’m doing this with, so thank you very much always for your read and support~!! <3
