When H&M opened stores here in Manila, I initially didn’t mind it. I thought it was just another sushal brand that I won’t be able to afford. I was wrong. Just like Uniqlo, it sells high-quality yet reasonably-priced clothes pala.
Have you seen their home items? Ang gaganda, grabe! But I’m not sharing about those and instead, the two basic cardigans I bought from H&M – Robinsons Manila a couple of weeks ago. Priced at P599 per piece, these cardigans are dainty! Touching one for the very first time, I could tell the fabric was of high quality. Even the stitches were perfectly aligned.
I tried it on and liked how it fit. It was also cool (the term is presko in Tagalog) when worn but provided enough warmth inside, if you know what I mean. I even found out I was a size XS in it. Okay pala dito, ang liit ng size ko. (I am usually a size M or L in tops and dresses). Haha.
Among the available colors, I chose black and gray because I could easily wear them to work. I didn’t buy them immediately during my first visit. I had to think it through if I really needed them or not. Most of the cardigans in my closet came either from Divisoria or SM Dept. Store. I knew that these cardigans from H&M were of good quality because I had something to compare them with. When I came back to H&M a week after my first visit, I was already convinced that I would buy them. So buy them I did!
The price of basic cardigans (with almost the same quality) in other stores ranges from P1,000 to P1,500. (The V-neck ones from Uniqlo are P1,490 a piece.) The cardigans from H&M are definitely a wise buy. And so I thought they qualified in my “Frugal Finds.”
How about you, where do you get your cardigans from? 🙂
