Posts Tagged ‘Subway Shopping’

These white fuzzy sweaters are popular for winter. In Korea you can find them everywhere, shopping at the subway station you can find them at a bargain, but the quality might be better at department stores. When I’m shopping, I think to myself, how long am I going to use this? Is it too trendy? and when will I wear it? I usually keep things for around a month (I am guessing) I see clothes as temporary pieces, I’m sorry but only home good like furniture are permanent. We are not cars that need updating once every two years. Trendy is fun for a hot date or a fun Christmas party, but if it’s too trendy and too expensive it’s probably not worth buying. The feeling of new clothes gives me a sense of refreshment. I must have something new, and not having a dryer in Korea doesn’t help, it give me an excuse to go shopping. I would say these white fuzzy sweaters are long-term keepers. I might have a white one this year and have a black one next year that might have a subtle difference. This is the key and secret in keeping up with fashion trends. Next mission, fuzzy white sweater! =)

Youngdongpo is one stop from Yongsan station.  It’s another great subway shopping spot!  I can’t help but take a glance shopping is probably one the things I’m best at.  Tom’s Factory I believe it’s a Korean brand because you can find them everywhere.  I tried doing a Google search on the company, but I didn’t have any luck finding much information.  It’s possible the Korean Google (Naver) would have information, but I’m not the best at doing Korean language searches.   They have classic Korean designs.  You can find Tom’s Factory right when you get out of the station going towards Lotte Department store.  I went to Tom’s Factory in Ewha University and they were very polite and let you try on the clothes.

Hat Heaven!  

The prices range from 10,000 – 20,000 won not expensive.


If you’re going to buy shoes in Korea, buy them on sale.  In my opinion, quality of shoes here isn’t that great.  Even if you wanted to buy a pair of decent 9 West shoes or Steve Madden‘s in Korea you are looking at double the price they would cost you in the states.  Just give yourself the break from brands and make a diverse an affordable shoe closest.  If the shoes are actually made in Korea they might be a bit more expensive but quality is better, so they’re worth it.  You need quality high heels to walk on this Korean mountain turf.

All Kinds of jeans under 20,000 won.  (BTW this is mostly for woman.)

Young Dong Po’s 10,000 won bags, I think that’s about $11 in USA.  Don’t quote me, I never understand currency conversion. haha!

Going on a date, but just spilled coffee on your top.  Welcome to Korean magic, just before you get on the subway buy a new top that doesn’t look the price.^^

This combination of shoes, top, and clutch were my favorite.  Keeping it simple yet feminine.
