Shanghai, Part Three

There are many excellent aspects of Shanghai, but one of my favourites is all the shopping! What I like about the malls in Shanghai is the fact that they have basically everything you need compacted into an average of 5 stories with at least 30 stores on each level. I love shopping, but I hate walking long distances to get to stores.

Here is the majority of my haul (click for larger image):

I absolutely love everything I bought, but I think my favourite has to be the Wacom Bamboo Tablet (which isn't pictured here, I just threw in the pen).

My second favourite thing is definitely the small turtle keychain thing, here's a closeup:

I've named it after my own turtle, Happy. :P

From the above pictures, you can also see that I got a lot of pens and pencils. I absolutely love shopping for stationery (which is why I love back-to-school shopping).

Lastly, I'd just like to share this gorgeous item of clothing with you all:

I can't wait to wear it! :D :D

So in conclusion, I love shopping, especially in Shanghai. Do you have any particular places/stores that you love?

    I can't quite tell since everything's somewhat covered up, but it looks like you got some really nice stuff! That last jacket is lovely.

    I love that coat of yours. It's so cute. I like Western (American?) malls that are spread out because they feel nice and open. But Asian malls are cool too. IMO, they have a more chaotic/fun vibe. Everything's stacked on top of each other.

    Yay! Shopping. :D You got soo many cute items. I absolutely LOVE the black shoes (the ones on the right of the 1st photo) as well as the A Thousand Splendid Suns book! I can not wait to read that one.

    I don't really have any 'favorite' places to shop. :| I just shop at the places that are near my house. Gordmans, Kohls, and Areopostle.

    It looks like you had a lot of fun! I'm jealous because I've always wanted to go to Shanghai, but every time I go to China, I've gone through Beijing instead. I want to go to Shanghai for the shoppppping. I prefer the malls in the U.S., though, as opposed to crowded and cluttered Chinese malls, most of which are chock full of garish clothing. Anyway, that turtle is ADORABLE, I love stationery too, and A Thousand Splendid Suns is an awesome book.
