Uniqlo and Muji

In many Asian cities like Singapore, Hong Kong, and of course, Tokyo, the mega-stores Uniqlo and Muji are old news. In the United States, however, Uniqlo is relatively new in the land of cheap retailers such as H&M, Forever 21, Walmart, etc. Uniqlo and Muji are located in SoHo, New York City. Muji can also be found in Chelsea, Times Square and the JFK Airport. You can also purchase items online (See the links above). Uniqlo and Muji are part of the same company, one that values good service and reasonably priced but good quality products.

At Uniqlo, you can find puffy winter jackets for $50, a handsome wool coat with faux fur trim on the hood for less than $100, corduroy pants for $30, darling hoodies that have faux fur lining the hoods, inexpensive men and women's cashmere sweaters for $30.

Muji is the ultimate simplistic and modern home store. They cary many things such as organizing compartments, snacks, robes, and just about anything you would want for your home. My absolute favorite things from Muji, however, are their pens and other stationary. I adore their black erasers, refillable pens, and multi-colored (and we are talking a rainbow of colors) pens. Muji is a tad more expensive in the US, but I think most of their things are worth it. The word on the street is that their snacks are delicious!

  1. You've got to love UNIQLO for their high quality, unique designs and cheap prices. I'm loving their HEATTECH thermal clothing at the moment - not sure how I'd be coping this Winter without it!
