The other day, Uniqlo held a private shopping event for mommy bloggers at Fahrenheit88. Ahhh… shopping. Just hearing the word gives me a jolt of excitement!
You probably know how much I love dressing up my girls and shopping for their clothes. I just love organizing and coordinating them into adorable little outfits. I think I’m a little obsessed, hence the #ayrarainalookbook on Instagram! :D
There was a mini contest on our social medias prior to the event, where participants need to answer 2 simple questions and 2 lucky winners will be chosen to join the private shopping event with RM200 shopping vouchers each! How fun is that?!
Anyway, Uniqlo opened their store extra early that day (8.30 am) just for us so that we can have the store all to ourselves before it opens to public. Felt so special. Hehe.
The first thing we saw when we went up to the kids’ section was this – balloon station!
This aunty is so “terer”. You can request for any balloon shapes; she can make it for you.
Flower, magic wand, heart shape, butterfly, lady bug, dog, bike, gun, sword, even Elmo! (Wonder if she can make balloon shoes too)
And then the shopping began!
To be honest, that was my first time shopping for my kids at Uniqlo. I never really bothered to check out their kids collection before because I’m used to shop at my girls’ regular brands, which are mostly online from US. All I can say is, I’m definitely going to shop here again for my kids, especially their tees.
Ooohh their tees!
If you’re looking for cute and comfy daily wear tees for your kids, just go to Uniqlo. Seriously, they have so many selections of tees and tops, and they are so affordable (RM29.90 – RM39.90)!
Their most popular range is the UT graphic t-shirts. They even collaborated with Disney Project (they have Frozen tees!), Snoopy, Sanrio (Hello Kitty), author Leo Lionni, Mr. Men and Little Miss series, and Michael Bastian collection.
So… here’s what I got for my girls – something chic and comfy!
For Ayra, I got her a white cardigan, navy blue top with ruffled hem and printed cropped pants; and for Raina, a pink cardigan, blue gingham top and white leggings. Apparently, you can get a lot with RM200 at Uniqlo!
I find Uniqlo sizing runs big – or maybe my girls are just so petite! For reference, Ayra, who is almost 7, wore the smallest size for cropped pants (for 4-5 years). Raina’s leggings is from baby/toddler section (size 90, which is supposed to be for 24 months baby! LOL). And those cardigans that they are wearing? They are also from toddler section - Ayra wore size 100 (3-4 years) and Raina wore size 90 (24 months). Hahaha! But whatevs, as long as the clothes fit well, right.
What I like most about Uniqlo clothing (besides the affordable price) is the variations. Each piece of clothing comes in a few other colors or prints and I really like that because, you know, when you like something, you just want to get it in every single color and print! Like that top with ruffled hem that Ayra is wearing, it also comes in other colors – white, grey, red and something else (can’t remember already). I really like that top and I think it’s perfect for layering and dressy enough to be worn on it’s own. I’m so gonna get more! I also like those cardigans because they’re lightweight (like t-shirts material) which is perfect for our hot weather. And yes, it comes in other colors as well.
Thank you Uniqlo for this fun shopping experience! We surely had a great time and my girls love their new outfits
