BAG PURCHASED IN GAROSUGIL, KOREA.

This bag was purchased in Garosugil also known as “tree lined streets” in Seoul. Though I loved many of the shopping options in Seoul, Garosugil was my favorite!  The outdoor shopping is  the reminiscent vibe of New York’s Soho district. The area consisted on many small boutiques, ateliers and the cutest restaurants and coffee/tea shops. I may have had one of the best milk tea of my life there!

My first shopping experience in Seoul was at Hongdae. Hongdae is in the Hongik University area and geared towards student shopping, which means more affordable items. Hongdae is outdoors and consist of hundreds of stalls and small boutiques. You could find clothes ranging from $5-$120. If you are on a budget, rather than spending $10 dollars on a cheaper item, I found that the mid-range items meant better quality. Some important factors to consider are that most boutiques only have one color, size or item. And if you are not “Asian size,” you may be out of luck. I would say more than half of the stores did not have fitting rooms but if that holds you back from buying, waiting may just mean you would miss out. The above dress was purchased in Hongdae.
