Located in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Seoul, I avoided taking a taxi up the big hill in order to arrive at my destination: The Centaur Boutique and Showroom. It definitely wasn't the first time that I have passed by this beauty of a shop, but it was my first time going in! So many floors of intricate designs and dreamy pieces.
Baby Centaur is the little sister line of The Centaur, an already established designer label, and celebrity-favorite, in Korea. A feminine take on streetwear, I fell in love with all of the sparkly athleisure, like these amazing purple twinkle pants. If you're a taller gal that struggles to find pants that are long enough, then these are your best bet. (SHH! I rolled them up at the waist a little).

If you've made it out to The Centaur Showroom, that also means you're right around the corner from a ton of really cool spots, like record shops, designer dog clothing boutiques, soap and candle shops and a bunch of cafes. If you're a newbie to the neighborhood, here are three recommendations that can keep you busy for an afternoon:
+ FRANK, for their rainbow roll cakes, cakes for Wes Anderson fans, and cozy interior
+ Eclair by Garuharu, for their mind-blowingly good eclairs, and that #whywhiteworks aesthetic
+ Big Step Coffee for their big steps (ha!), big drinks and dog-friendly vibe
