Shopping Galore at 168 Mall Divisoria

I love Divisoria!  This is my shopping mecca for clothes, housekeeping items, art and craft materials and everything in between.  Like other 168 Mall shoppers, I am drawn not only to the variety of commodities available and their wholesale prices but the place itself – it’s clean, organized and air-conditioned, just like in a mall!

What I enjoy most in shopping at 168 Mall are the clothes.   You can find the latest fashionista clothes there.  Right now, it’s Korean fashion all over.  Lots of loose and printed blouses, lace-collared blouses, chiffon blouses, maxi-dresses, floral pants and skirts, etc.  You name it, and they most likely have it.  And the prices?  Incredibly cheap!

When you’re surrounded by all these beautiful and cheap clothes and you are shopping with ladies who also love clothes, your EQ (emotional quotient) is bound to go haywire.  I know that I will not be spared from this shopping temptation, so to avoid overspending, I set a budget for myself.  I had fun scouting for best bargains and thanks to my Chinese SIL, Juvvy, I scored additional discounts from Chinese sellers.  She also helped me choose the clothes to buy (because it’s so hard to pick just one when everything’s pretty!), along with my cousin Mae Anne who is a self-confessed fashionista.

Here are my shopping loot from 168 Mall:

2 pairs of black thermal leggings that are so “in” these days.  Only P120 per pair.

P1080643b

Fashionable loose blouse with ‘Mexican’-stripe design (P250.00).   This is a see-through blouse, perfect for the hot, hot summer!

P1080636b

Another loose blouse, with black lace on the shoulders (sorry, I can’t think of a better description).   It has a sheer cover underneath so you don’t have to wear a tank top inside.  I got this also for P250.00.  I love the ‘glam rock’ feel of this one.

P1080639b

Side story:  Juvvy was the one who first spotted this and Mae Anne liked it too.  The blouse came in 3 color sets (red-blue-yellow, orange-green-white and this one in purple-black-white).  Juvvy got the red blouse and Mae Anne got the orange one.  Then they asked me to get the purple one as well!  The Chinese seller must be so happy to have sold 3 blouses at a time!   So each of us now has this same blouse but in different colors   =)   Pwede na k’meng mag-perform as The Supremes!

I fell in love with the “Cath Kidston” look of this blouse, and you all know how crazy I am with anything Cath Kidston.  So obviously I have to have this!  Also priced at P250.00.

P1080634b

I hope you’re not bothered by the door knob in the pictures.  I couldn’t find a better spot in our apartment to take pictures of these clothes on a hanger.

There were lots of printed fleece and cotton pajamas on sale there also (only P100 a pair) and I got myself one with candy-colored frogs design.

P1080630b

Pasalubong for AJ:  Voltes V shirt (P280.00).

P1080631b

On our way home, we passed by this stall that sells stationery and craft items.  They sell washi tapes in different patterns, colors and prints at only P25.00 per roll.  I know that these tapes sell at much higher prices in malls (I think P80.00 is the cheapest I saw) so I got all the designs I want already.   Can’t wait to use these with my baker’s twines from Paper Chic Studio!

P1080624b

I was hoping to buy little watch lanterns as decorative pieces for our apartment but this seller I found was so rude she turned me off.  Too bad she really has nice stuff on display.

Lastly, I almost bought packages of these “Princess Tiara” loot bags, which sells at P200 for a dozen.  But I couldn’t think of an occasion where I could use them.  Very pretty, noh?

Overall, t’was a very good retail therapy for the 3 of us and I hope we can do this again, but not too soon, though haha!

Thanks Juvvy and Mae Anne!  I had a blast shopping with you ladies!

    Leah, you are such an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your latest finds in Divisoria. I love shopping there too! I would like to ask which shop did you find the princess tiara loot bags? My daughter will be celebrating her 2nd birthday come July and I am looking for party favors. I think those loot bags will be perfect for her party! Thank you and more power!

      Hi Judy! You will find it at the 2nd floor of 168 Mall mismo. I think it’s in the area near the escalator na =) The stall selling it also has other loot bags so it shouldn’t be hard to miss cos puro packages tlaga yung tinitinda nya =) Good luck!

    Hi…where can I find the tiaras? Is it still in the same location? Is it in the new building of 168 mall or the ones at the back? TIA please email me back =)

    • says

      HI Divine! It is the building just across 168 Mall, along Meisic Street (that’s why people has come to know or call it as the “Meisic Mall”).

      I hope this helps.

        Jojo

        • says

          The stall selling the voltes-v shirt is on the 4th flr of 168 mall where the food court is. I wasn’t able to take note of the number but I’m sure the other sellers there know about this shop kse ito lang nagtitinda nito dun sa floor na yun ö

  13. Kattie says

    Hello. Where in DV did you buy the thermal leggings? and is it thick like is it really for winter? I have to buy kasi for next year. Thank you

    • says

      Hi Kattie, yes the fabric of the leggings is thick pwede sa winter. Unfortunately I could not remember the stall number but there are plenty of stalls selling thermal leggings at Divi.
