    noticed that this thread was started in 2004. I am sure by now in 2006, there are many unique shops sprouting up around town that are really nice. Orchard road with all the usual big brands are so passe. People are shopping in boutiques with mass produced clothes. everone is wearing Zara/Mango etc.

    Nowadays i like to shop at small shops that offer much more. there are old shophouses that are newly renovated and offer the latest style from overseas. Places like Haji lane/ Club Street etc that are really laid back and comfortable to shop in. Orchard road is so crowded sometimes that you cannot try on clothes in peace.

      heee.. i second that fashionfoodadic
      i was at chinatown area last night and people's park is so interesting....
      plus you do not need to spend a bomb getting clothes or services there...
      the aunties and uncles are so friendly and that's what i called service!

            Hi Akina, I think they're refering to Blk 32, the blk that sells elastic belts stuff on 3rd level. Have seen quite a no. of shops selling nice / unique clothings when I shop for the belts stuff. Just next to OG and Peoples Park Complex.

                  2nd the haji lane suggestion

                  i love shopping at thrift shops too. picked up some nice heels from a thrift shop in katong. got a pair of off-white nubuck leather pumps from there today <3 even managed to snag 2 pairs of ferragamos from there 2 months back

                  town's pretty boring to me coz the things there are run-of-the-mill
