Online Shopping Choices

Like shopping? Who doesn’t? Shopping is just one of best pleasures in life, especially when we have the spending power. But what if we don’t? Most working women tend to be skeptical about shopping, I know because I experience it myself. It’s difficult to buy stuff when you know you’ve worked hard to earn that money. But I have to satisfy my craving so to speak,  so I always search for shops that do not price too much but sell trendy items at the same time. Aside from that, time is also a factor. Busy women who work 8 to 12 hours a day find it difficult going to malls, so our usual go-to place is the internet. It’s convenient and cheap, we don’t have to worry about bracing the traffic just to get to that sale, right? 🙂

Below are four of my favorite online shops. Their items can be compared to those you see in malls, with prices that won’t certainly break the bank.

Dresses

I like dresses. If you scan my lookbook, you’ll see me wearing a dress in almost every photo. I just feel more feminine in them. Koreana and Gelibean Couture provide the prettiest items at a really affordable price.

Koreana is owned and managed by Pearl Avenilla (pictured above), who is often mistaken as a Korean, which would probably explain why she christened her online shop with such name. I call her secretly a superwoman, as she also works as a full-time bank manager while managing and modelling for her shop. Koreana’s price range begins at Php 300 to Php 600—very affordable if you ask me, not to mention you’ll instantly get a preview of the actual items as they are modelled by ‘real’ girls from my hometown, Naga City. Like Koreana’s Facebook page HERE and be delighted by Asian-inspired goodies. 🙂 I have worn two items from this shop in June and October.

Gelibean Couture is owned and managed by another superwoman, Angelina Go. A jack-of-all-trades, Angelina does the photography, make-up, and styling of her catalog, a testament to how incredible and stylish this woman is. Gelibean Couture (and its owner) has been featured in several media outlets, most notable of which is the Wall Street Asia Journal. Cool huh? What’s way cooler is you can imitate her style in just Php 300 to 900 tops. Like Gelibean Couture HERE or add the Multiply account for easier transaction 🙂

Bags

A look cannot be complete without accessories, and one of the most important and ergonomic piece of accessory is a bag. My favorites are Tsoknat Bags and Satchella.

Tsoknat Bags manufactures handmade bags for customers who appreciate modern, playful, and quirky designs. It is owned by Toni Rose Palma, who hails from Naga City, my hometown. The shop has been around for quite a long time, and thanks to Ms. Toni’s unwavering creativity, her shop offers new and unique designs. And have I told you the bags are made from scraps and used textiles? Tsoknat Bags is also 2007’s No. 1 online shop in the country. Ms. Toni only has one stock per design, so you’ll never worry of seeing someone else carrying your bag. Visit Tsoknat’s Multiply online shop or like the Facebook page to know more about their products and sales.

If you are into satchels like me, Satchella is the shop to visit. Satchels can be quite expensive, but Satchella offers the same design but with a cheaper price tag. The shop is owned by Fay Barroga and Kaycee Umali, a young entrepreneur studying at DLSU.  Their bags are worn by top bloggers Tricia Gosingtian and Dani Barretto. The bags are very roomy, I can even fit my laptop and notebooks in them. I purchased one in June and it’s still good as new. Durability? Check. Price? Check. Like their Facebook page HERE.

As a special, Christmas treat to my readers and blog followers, these shops (plus others which will also be announced soon) will be doing a blog giveaway here on Metamorphosis beginning December 1 until the end of the month. So make sure to drop by one week from now and get a chance to win items (yes, ITEMS) from each of these shopping havens!
