confession of a shopaholic (not)

to be honest, i'm far from the description of a shopaholic.

i (try to) avoid impulse purchase and prefer a planned-out shopping day. it usually takes one whole day to satisfy this hunger. also, it's always better if i could hunt throughout different stores to indulge my passion. 

i love malls. i do. but sometimes, it doesn't have variety of shopping places i could go to. it's pretty rare to see a mall that fits million stores that offers amazing (read: my favourite) stuffs to dig in. this mindset then turned in a flip of a hand until i finally went to Grand Indonesia for shopping experience.

at first i thought, this mall is so huge & its interior is waaay too cool! i once thought i was visiting somewhere overseas because of its great view. well, Grand Indonesia is indeed the heaven of fashionista. i (or i believe i could refer to "we" in here) can find the hippest stores in Jakarta. divided in two areas which are East mall & West mall, Grand Indonesia provides us more options regarding our different preferences.


so this one day i planned out a shopping day at Grand Indonesia and let's follow my journey and peek on the greatness of fashion heaven!


Forever 21


one of my favourite stores out of all places.
what's so great is, it has two storeys that allows my lust of fashion goes crazy.


find your basics here, easy peasy
available in many colours too!


accessories madness, it has one big area for accessories.
i know you're excited.



since it's my first store on the list, i still have time & energy to take photos on its changing room


denim on denim! fyi, i'm taking the jacket home ;)


because floral is eternity



Cotton On


Cotton On is my all-time favourite store since i stayed in Melbourne. it's maybe one of the things i missed the most from Australia. however, after knowing the franchise's coming to Jakarta, i was so happy like a kid found her lost candy. and what's more amazing is that the price is NOT even slightly more expensive from the ones in Australia, at all. a pretty good deal, ey?


told ya! $30 for two? cheap as!




H&M 


well, who doesn't know about H&M's biggest store in Indonesia that is located in Grand Indonesia, East Wing? i bet none.
spanning approximately 3,900 square meters, this store spoils me with its various collections. it actually does have the most complete collection for clothing, underwear and accessories for men, women, kinds & baby.
oh well, enough said.




monochrome is my current eyegasm



great value of money, don't you agree?


pick one. or all :)




i can't stop staring at this cute pug socks. will you be mine honeeyyy?



Zara


i've always adored the way Zara maintains its collections classy, neat & always trendy yet up to date. this time though, i specifically in love with the summer vibe; hyping the sense of colourful, playful & screaming fun that is being Zara's highlight of the month. 


stay classic with white & gold


pastel for candy lovers


striking neon! my life has been enlighten!



24/7 summer. indeed.



Pull and Bear


crop top, hot pants, and short sleeves are summer's best friends. i can easily find casual clothes for my everyday activities in Pull and Bear. i'm a fan of its simplicity and comfort. a true friend, i guess.


"trust me, i'm a lifeguard"



Urban Icon


reborn with a new concept, Urban Icon has officially became my top list shopping store. it has numerous great brands that varies from bags, wallets, to watches. i would definitely revisit the store as many times as i could because of its warm ambiance. i feel like being home (and how i wish i could own everything inside the store lol)



the preview night was a blast. i was glad i could witness such event. (details on next post, fellas!)


cute patterns, aren't they? SO me!


Liebeskind for the leather lovers




well, that's all for now.
thanks for going through my shopping adventure. i hope you enjoy the sightseeing and please do have one for yourself. thanks Grand Indonesia for making my life easier & for the non-stop fun shopping experience. 
what a fashion heaven, indeed!



cheers,
sartob
