Commercial Street Shopping Haul Review!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

Every Girl’s first love is shopping, and its mine too…. 😉 Today’s blog is all about budget street shopping. The cost of living in Bangalore is crazy. In such a case, do you think a girl would cut down on her shopping? The answer is a big NO!

No matter what the latest styles come from the runway into the branded stores, there is a certain joy in street shopping. I think every girl would agree with this? Of-course ! One of the most happening street shopping destination in Bangalore is Commercial Street. Whether you are just browsing for inspiration or looking for a fabulous dress for less, you will find everything at commercial street. It’s a shopping paradise for every girl in Bangalore.

Shopping at Commercial Street can also be tricky and, frankly, overwhelming. So I decided to take you guys on a tour with me on the blog and show the market to those of you who have not explored commercial street till now. I’m sharing the GPS locations of some great shops in this post from where i do buy very often. Use it well Girls !!!!!!!!!

Some Golden Rules To Keep In Mind

Best Time :  In general, the earlier you arrive, the greater the selection. Mornings are good to browse at a slower pace too.

Carry Cash :  Most shops do not accept credit cards so make sure that you have enough cash before you start shopping. Remember to carry change.

Bargain : We Girls are very good in doing Bargaining. Try bargaining every time you shop; you may get a great price reduction and enjoy the fun and pleasure of shopping.  If they quote the price as  Rs.150, start at Rs.50. Simple!!!!!

Check Defects : Watch out for any holes or tears or missing stones or studs. Check for defects, they will be happy to look for another piece of the same kind. In most cases, they even give you a discount if you don’t mind buying a dress with a missing stud.

Good Company : Go with your friend who enjoy’s doing shopping as much you do and has lot of patience, as street shopping needs lots of patience. So just chill out.
