In conjunction with this year’s Great Singapore Sale, MasterCard curated a few different “Priceless Shopping Trails”. One of the shopping route was at Haji Lane, and I was invited to go shopping at the area with a PayPass tap-and-go card.
Stop 1: Dulcetfig (41 Haji Lane, Singapore 189234)
This is quite a cute shop with a mix of house designs and vintage finds. The new dresses brought in by Dulcetfig are very well-made and near exclusive, with limited quantities per design. I feel that this store has something for everyone because it stocks cute accessories, vintage bags, handmade clutches and apparel catered for different styles.
Stop 2: Victoria Jomo (47 Haji Lane, Singapore 189240)
What drawn me to the shop in the first place was the cheongsam dresses at the entrance. When I stepped into the boutique, I was greeted by an eclectic line-up of dresses and accessories. Most were brand new, some were vintage inspired. Walk a little bit to the end of the store and you find yourself at the salon area. Interesting concept of a hair salon cum boutique, you could grab your event outfit and get your hair prepped here!
Stop 3: Grammah (66 Haji Lane, Singapore 189259)
A walk into the store is akin to a journey back to my childhood. Other than the vintage pieces, which were quite attractively priced by the way – I spotted a lovely printed shirt dress priced at only S$45 – there was a snacks corner selling tidbits that we used to buy at the school’s tuckshop. Head upstairs and you could find a cozy corner with all the memorabilia from the 80s. The store also has a “customization corner” where you could jazz up your new vintage apparel.
Stop 4: Threadbare & Squirrel (660 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188797)
Finally a non-vintage related boutique. Don’t you love the clean and contemporary decor at Threadbare & Squirrel? This is a multi-label store that stocks up mostly local labels – such as Weekend Sundries, A.K.A. Wayward, Kae Hana and ARC. Items in the store are indeed carefully curated whereby you can find a range of designs and accessories from independent labels that are not found in any other store at Haji Lane. Definitely a must-go if you are at the area!
Stop 5: espressoLAB (13 Bali Lane, Singapore 189849)
For coffee break, I popped into espressoLAB, which was running an offer of 2 cuppas at the price of one. Other than coffee, they serve other beverages, brunch as well as Windowsill pies. The cafe had a laid-back ambiance where I could just laze at the armchair and people-watch comfortably. Swiping my prepaid PayPass card was quite a breeze because it worked almost like a tap-and-go credit card.
