My friend and I took a trip to New York City a few years back when I first introduced to Uniglo. The driver on our hop-on-hop-off tour bus described it as a “Japanese H&M” and so I was super excited to get off and do some serious shopping! (Let me add right here I have been obsessed with Japanese fashion and culture for as long as I can remember). However, when I entered the store I realized that Uniglo was not that similar to H&M. Unlike H&M which, (although I do like the store) in my opinion can sometimes feel like you are walking into the Ikea of fashion with crazy patterns and wild colors, Uniglo was more what every women and man want- staples pieces that go with every outfit. There I found a pencil skirt, a black blazer, and a really cool fun skirt!
Just recently I was told that they were building a Uniglo right downtown at the Eaton Center in Toronto where I live. I knew I had to go and check it out. What I was most impressed with was when I walked in was there were hundreds of different types of winter coats and spring jackets. “HEATTECH ” and “Japanese technology” were written on a lot of the clothes and I realized that it was lightweight clothing made to keep you warm in cold weather, but nothing felt heavy or uncomfortable.
I ended up buying a cool jacket. I did find the sizes to run a little bit smaller then what I’m used to with the coats and pants, but the sweaters and everything else is true to size. I have talked with friends and family who swear that the underwear, bras, and socks there last forever! Here are my Uniglo tights as well as my new blond highlights, I had to show them off! My featured image is the Uniglo puffy coat. You can also check out my Uniglo youtube video where I am wearing my fun skirt I mentioned at the beginning of this page! Thanks for reading and sorry if I butchered my pronunciation of uniglo in my video, it was an old one. LOL. 🙂
