Stylist’s Picks: Get Tons of Fashionable Pieces at The Metro Stores

A few weeks ago, I had a super duper mega huge garage sale and this left my closet at a draining point (literally). I don’t really know how I was able to let go so much clothes, shoes and bags and I was actually proud of myself because I thought it was the most satisfying thing I’ve done so far.

Well, not until last week when I’ve realised I don’t have clothes anymore. Gaah, I only have a few pieces left and most of them are my faves — staples I’ve worn for about 10-20 times already. While mixing and matching was an option, I thought I should go treat myself and shop for some new stuff.

I decided to check out Metro Department Store because one, it’s just near school, two, I love UP Town Center  because parking is always a breeze and three, I’ve heard a lot of good things about the store. It’s my first time to shop at Metro and so I don’t really know what to expect.


As soon as I entered the hall, I let out a huge “WOW, ang saya!” and the gasping continued as soon I browsed through the racks. GODDD, almost all the pieces are nice and the prices are SO CHEAP!



There are racks with clothes tagged at 199, 399 and 499 and mind you the selections are superb. I had to abuse all the ruffled and dressy stacks because I’m in to this girly phase lately and I thought they’ll match the tassel earrings I’ve hoarded online.





The clothes are well segmented. The entire area is divided into different sections — denims, athletic wears, gowns and formal pieces, plus size ensembles, girls teens wear, office wears, summer collection etc.



I ended up buying a lot of stuff – 12 lovely pieces for just 5K plus I also got a cash voucher worth 100 for well, just shopping! Haha!


I got so excited styling the pieces I’ve handpicked and here are some of the looks I was able to create.

The Crocheted Chic


Matched this crocheted top with a black wide leg pants to create a boho-yet-fierce look. Kept the entire piece minimal but accentuated it with a maroon tassel earrings plus a maroon suede boots.

Entire look at 700+ (excluding shoes and accessories)

The Romantic Lass


Paired this white balloon off-shoulder top with a denim jumper (which I turned into a skirt). I like that this entire look is comfy and fab at the same time.

Entire look at 800+ (excluding shoes and accessories)

The Classic Girl



This basic dress is pretty stylish and it actually looks the same with one of those pieces from a high-end international brand. I love that it’s classic and sexy without showing too much skin. Paired it with a metallic vest to give it a more edgy look plus a cutesy flat.

Entire look at 300+  (excluding vest, flats and accessories)

The Preppy Maiden


Played it cool with this patched denim shorts plus a ruffled top. Tuck it in for a more defined look.

Entire look at 900+ (excluding shoes and accessories)

The K-Drama Bae



Probably one of my favourite looks. Experimented on layering with these monochrome pieces and voila, here comes your Kore-Korean sassy girl. Love the lace long-sleeve top which you can actually wear alone on top of any kind of bottoms.

Entire look at 1100+ (excluding shoes and accessories)

The Vibrant Damsel



This chiffon pink top is so nice, you can wear it as is or tie the front part to create a giant bow highlight. Kept the style at a casual level by pairing the top with a plain white pair of shorts.

Entire look at 800+ (excluding accessories)


I was actually very happy with all my Metro Store finds! I found some other fab pieces and I know I’ll be coming back for more. I can’t wait for their denim season collection (and I heard it’ll be released this month!)

Wanna get any of these looks? Or are you looking for some stylish stuff? Well, there’s really something for YOU at the Metro Stores.

    You have bought a really nice new wardrobe for yourself! I have been shopping recently too but I didn’t buy so many items. The shops looks great and I absolutely love their colored selection of shorts! Your post actually reminded me that I should do a clean up in my wardrobe as well and get rid of all the clothes I am not wearing anymore.

    Wow, I salute you for truly knowing whats best for you. I don’t have that kind of fashion senses, Its weird, but I usually don’t care how I look like. Perhaps, I should change my perception and I try to look good sometimes, by choosing something that could make me look like a real human, you know what I mean (hehehe). Metro stores is also my favorite store, I usually buy some of my stuff in this Mall. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    It also happens to me that I find myself wearing only a couple of pieces of clothes. And then I wander through the city and spend all of my savings for the new clothes. What I like most with this shop is its department distribution. Once you decide what to buy, you can easily find it by finding the right department. That’s really excellent!!

    wow.. 12 clothes in one shopping day .. that’s a lot for me haha but sometimes i cannot also control myself shopping for goodies especially if I love the items so much, if they are on sale or the item is in limited edition
    it’s fascinating how you managed to sport different looks with those different set of clothes!

    Love those you’ve hand picked. They are truly stylish. Plus of course everything turned beautiful because of the way you pose in front of the camera. We also tried Metro Department store and loved its Back to School deals.

    Wow! You had a great haul! I wish I’d be able to go there and spoil myself with nice clothes! I love organized shops! I won’t get dizzy walking and looking around.

    I also like going there to shop for clothes. But I don’t just stick to the department store. I also go around the boutiques in Market Market. They usually offer many nice options.

    I like how you put together the outfits. You have a knack for styling. My fave look for this collection is The Crocheted Chic, definitely. I love the combination of simplistic but edgy monochrome with the lacey, girly details. A sure win in my book!

    I have finally given away two boxes of clothes I haven’t worn in the past years. I thought it’s about time to clean out my closet and buy a few pieces I could mix and match. I saw Metro Store when I went to UP Town but didn’t bother to enter. Now I’m asking myself why?! And you were able to buy 12 pieces of clothes for 5k? I definitely must shop there soon. I love your crocheted top with a black wide leg pants the most.

    Wow! I love the way you mix and match! I like all the looks you presented to us.I haven’t tried Metro Store but I guess I will soon do. Thanks for sharing your shopping experience. And for being such an inspiration in style and fashion.

    Most of what you bought can be considered staple wardrobe pieces for sure! Love the way you styled your finds too! Very chic and light. I don’t think I’d have picked the same ones, but I like your style! Metro na Metro hehe. Not bad for 12 clothes at around 5k’s worth.

    I actually did the same thing, been letting go a few pieces, tops, bags, accessories, even makeup here and there. Not as many as you did but nevertheless like you, I felt great after. Ito ung breakup na hindi ka maheartbroken. Anyway, LOVE the classic girl & k-drama bae look.

    I love everything, especially that off-shoulder top. Been wanting to have one but have not found one yet! You did not mention where their branches are but I do hope they have one near me. That rack of denim shorts in different colors is definitely the first thing I would check out!

    Thanks for sharing! 😉
