Bugis Street - BFF Contest

Sponsored post

You already know Bugis Street is MY favourite hangout and shopping place in Singapore.

Favourite!!! It's unique in many ways and the shopping experience and ecstatic feeling i get from shopping at Bugis street is just different from anywhere else!!! I think this is why there are like 80 pictures in this post =X You've been warned. But you'd love them!!! It's chio ^.^ And got Sophie!

Alright, back to why i love Bugis Street!

First things first, competitive pricing. VERY competitive pricing there at Bugis street. Expect to find anything from $3 - $15 for clothes, bags and shoes, watches and anything! And accessories can cost as low as $1 - $2 typically @.@ I know right, it's insane.

People always ask me things like  where to find affordable this and where to find affordable that. It ranges from gothic jacket to work wear, to outfits suitable for school, prom dresses, sneakers, boots, ANYTHING related to fashion, i've been asked times and times over and over again.

And i stopped answering them becox my answer will always be the same - Bugis Street.

Which brings me to the next reason on why i love shopping at Bugis Street. The varieties of styles and the super wide range of choices. Whatever your style is, whatever you're looking for, you can get them at a more affordable price from Bugis Street.

I am actually pretty proud to introduce Bugis Street as the shopping heaven in Singapore!

I mean it's air-conditioned, it has ALL the styles you can find, it's accessible and it's ALWAYS so super lively  and vibrant!!! Fashionistas who love to change their styles all the time, Bugis is one great place that can let you change your outfits often without burning your pockets!!!

Hi, it's me. Lol. One camho shot to get the ball rolling. You better be ready cox 80 pictures awaits! One down, 79 more to go! Lolol. Eye-feast starts now.

Follow me on this e-tour around Bugis Street! ^.^
Earrings at 8 for $10. This is located right at the entrance when you enter from the DBS atm side.

Necklaces you'd find for AT LEAST $8 else where. At Bugis, it's 2 for $10!!!

I bought this vintage necklace and another one (show you later, keep scrolling) a collar choker!

As you walk around the first floor, you'd already notice the different styles you can spot in just one stretch within Bugis Street. Something smart-casual that can never go wrong? There are shops that sells just black, grey and whites. If you like sweet graphics, there are shops that caters to that too! And and, floral and bohemian can never go wrong, can it! =D

While you look out for styles, i look out for pricetags. That's just how i shop. And at Bugis Street i always always look out for boxes like this!!! You'd be pleasantly surprised by what you can find!

Picked out some vintage tops and denim for $5 each!!!

Guys, you must go to Dragon Street on the first floor. Teeshirts, shirts, pants, shoes, bags, jackets, anything you need for your wardrobe, you'd be able to find it there at a much lower price ^.^

One of the shop i love to visit is CUPID (first floor along Princess Street i think). It's two stores joint so you won't miss them! One thing i love most about them is (if you can spot it) they have two $5 sale rack and it's ALWAYS updated with new sales item =DDD Also the rest of their stuff are $15 max i think. Mostly $10. And they have new items very often!!

Browsing at CUPID. Bought a $5 high-low top from them! See the getup i did below~ =D

Collar choker necklace with studs from first shop mentioned above! =D $5!!!

Whole outfit for that day. I don't think anyone could tell my top, necklace and bag is $5 each. Lolol.

Yes this bag is $5!!! From Bugis Street, i'd share where i got it from, keep scrolling!!!

And then Sophie joins me for shopping and thanks to her for helping me snap some of the pics!!

We thought this was not bad so i got it ^.^ $5! It's the shop directly opposite Montifs @ BLQ/A34, first floor of Bugis Street! Anyway i don't think you can actually spot the shop number but i'd try my best to describe where it is okay!

How does the top look on me ^.^

My hair rope tie is from LUMI. This shop, you MUST go!!!!!

Accessories at 1 for $2, any 3 for $5!!! Go crazy!!!!! This is one of the must-go shop for me!!! Enter from Wo Ai Tai Mei (snack store, if you don't know, ask people!) and walk in a bit you'd see!

Sophie at LUMI. As you can see, the rope hair tie comes in various colours! All 3 for $5!!!

I bought these vintage rings from LUMI as well ^.^

First floor is the most bustling floor within Bugis Street i feel! Food and drink all there also!

Taking a break to get my favourite drink, birds nest drink haha. It's just agar agar but still i love!

If you're wondering where exactly is Princess Street within Bugis Street, look out for signs! Between the food store and watch store, you enter can already! And please, this watch store super awesome!!! I bought a few cute watches at $3 / $5 from them before!!! ^.^

Moving on to the second floor! First shop we walk into already very love!!! All these unique chunky necklaces, glasses at $5 and fake collars!!! ^.^

Grab a chance for a self shot while Sophie shops at the back ^.^

A few shops that you have to visit on the second level of Bugis Street if you are looking for unique items! This shop sells REALLY vintage and fun outfits! You can't miss them!

And for all sorts of bags you have to visit Luna. Sometimes their clutches go as low as $8!!!

All the things i've bought from level 1 and 2 ^.^ Now moving on to.. K Street on Level 3!!! Exciting! Cox i guess most of the time we need like half a day or more to really browse through level 1 and 2 cox there are just soooo many shops! Now you gotta cater some time for level 3 cox it's exciting!!

Part of where the excitement are!!! The all-new K-Street!!!

A minimart along the way to K-Street selling snacks and drinks from K-Street ^.^

Right behind me, shelves after shelves of neatly arrange fashion accessories and bags etc!

You really need A LOT of time here.

And more..

Spot anything you like? You can only get them at affordable prices at Bugis Street!!!

Strings of hearts with sweet notes written on them all =)

A closer look. Someone call Celine wrote something in Korean language. What does it say! Lol.

Me and Sophie. One before we both wonder off different direction cox we got so distracted haha.
