Across the Sea

Dear Diary,
As my diary you should know I love finding great fashion in Asia. Several outfits from my past entries have been the result of my many finds from Taiwan. Not only am I thrilled about the prices (most of them under $30), I also love mixing Asian fashion with my California style.
So you can imagine my excitement when I set my foot (in a $20 flat I found from my last trip) in Taoyuan International Airport. My plan was to fill my empty suitcase at the end of my trip with creamy faux leather jackets for $60, adorable flats for $20, print dresses for $15, pattern tights for $3, …etc. The possibilities are endless! But before I embark on my shopping adventure, I must over-consume myself with amazing food first!

Yellow Top: Taiwan (less than $10)
Black Long Cardigan: Gap
Belt: JCrew
Shoes: Taiwan (less than $20)

See I have worn this skinny belt in other outfits:

Where are your favorite places to shop in Taiwan? I'm going to Taipei for winter break and can't wait to hit the shops!

Hi JoJo - I am a bargain haunter at heart. I usually skip all the malls because they offer brands we can find in the U.S. I visit boutiques behind Chung Hsiao East Road Sec 4, small stores in the alleys of Sze Da night market, and Wu Fen Pu (once known as wholesale market). But it's a hit or miss with these places and requires lots of patience! Good luck!

u make me miss Taiwan so much! I love shopping there, especially footwear. they sell cute flats during summer and gorgeous boots during winter with extremely cheap prices. And the foods, mmm yummy.

Sid - I already dreaming about my next trip to Taiwan (whenever that is!). I cannot stop buying flats there either! I believe my record was 20 flats in one suitcase in one trip.
