I went shopping last Tuesday, a day I had off from work, to get some summer clothes. Particularly I needed new bottoms as my waist has (ahem) expanded a bit over the winter. Also there is a new H&M store that recently opened. Unfortunately, I was too excited shopping to take pictures. But I can assure you, ladies, that the H&M in Seoul is well worth whatever amount of time it would take you to get there. The prices and selection were very reasonable, along with the sizes and cut of the clothes. (If you have ever bought a shirt or dress from a side-street Korean brand store you would know what I am talking about).
I ended up shopping at both H&M and Forever 21. I would say that Forever 21 had a much larger selection but their prices were definitely higher.
Here for you are a few of the things I bought.
Usually I don't enjoy shopping since I usually get all flustered what is the best price and look. But this time around I really enjoyed myself and just spent the money instead of worrying about it. Maybe it had something to do with the way Myeongdong is so hypnotic and just sucks you into a shopping mood.
In the end, I feel good knowing I can find my size and style in Korea. :)
