I have not shopped in KL in a long time! For fashion, usually i buy one whole season worth of clothes when i travel to Japan XD
Room8008 invited me over to their shop for a shopping spree, and who would say no to shopping! I have seen them around on the internet as it’s one of many blogger’s favorites, but i didn’t know that they actually have a physical boutique too! It’s located at Berjaya Times Square, KL.
The moment i stepped inside, i was pleasantly surprised. This isn’t one of the million online blog shops i thought it typically would be! At first glance you might think you have walked into a random store in Harajuku.
Lots of Kawaii elements, sweet pastels in all their girliness, carefully decorated corners set a really lovely ambience for shoppers. I instantly also spotted things that couldn’t be found outside Japan. And i thought to myself, the owner must be a Japan lover, just like me.
True enough then, i met the mastermind behind it all, Kiki, after she came back from a meeting.
Instead of talking about work, we ended up spending most of our time talking about how much we love Japan lolol. It’s always nice to meet people who can appreciate what you do admire, too. 😀
Back to Room8008, it was actually established way back in 2008. As their business grows, they are now switching to the usual online FB shops to mostly self-manufacturing their own items. And they have started to actively brand themselves since last year.
Just like Kiki and the lovely interior of the shop, Room8008’s provide a variety of fashion apparels including clothes, bags, shoes and other accessories, including the very unMalaysian hats, berets and socks. I totally love that they added these into completing an outfit.
So i would say that their styles are casual, girly, quite Japanese but totally wearable and practical for Malaysian shoppers.
I also absolutely adore how they are thoughtful enough to set up a pantry area for their shoppers who need a break and have a hot/cold drinks or two while chatting with their friends. Look how pretty it is!
Time for shopping!
I tried on a few outfits, and this is one of my favorite (totally in a summer vacation mood 😛 ). White sun hat, crystal necklace (which is supposed to be a head accessory), botanical romper and platform shoes are all from Room8008.
And of course i also brought home lots of new clothes for the summer!!
Here are some of my Room8008 coordinates:
White bandage top and black bandage skirt with gold embellishment from Room8008.
A same bandage top in a different color and white tutu skirt from Room8008, their best seller and most popular items. I saw lots of tutu and tulle skirts in a variation of colors in the shop!
Knit border top and black tutu skirt from Room8008. I love how versatile the tutus are especially in black, very feminine, yet not over the top.
White tube top and canvas bag from Room8008. Perfect for a happy beach day!

I almost cried reading this blogpost, hehehe. I miss this “cheesie”, love all your coordinate blogpost. And you are such a hot mama “envy”.
I especially love the last one, the top and the pants so pretty.
Love how you still have some of your “super kawaii gyaru cheesie” style. It evolved to fit your now mature style but I still love seeing hints of it.
