Use our handy quiz to find out exactly what your shopping style is
August 17, 2018
Everybody has a slightly different approach to shopping.
Do you prefer a more systematic approach, researching and poring over information for days before finally making a run down to get that item of your dreams?
Or do you prefer to drift down to Orchard Road, flitting in and out of shops before finally deciding on your perfect purchase — or maybe, even ending up not buying anything at all?
Perhaps, you’re a mixture of both. How can you know for sure? Take this quiz to find out what kind of shopper you are:
You have expensive taste, Mr/Ms Treat Yourself! You certainly know what makes you happy, and you aren’t afraid to go for it. You’re always looking for the next way to be taken care of, whether it’s a threading session at Browhaus, a customised facial at MTM Skincare, or a hair appointment at Kenaris Salon. In fact, you just had a glass of wine at Marks & Spencer and a hearty brunch at Privé today. It’s no secret that you love to be pampered, and you wear that badge with pride.
You’re Mr/Ms YOLO! You’ve got a substantial Instagram following and always dresses to impress. Every item in your wardrobe is carefully curated. Melissa shoes? Mazzario’s cheongsam? Accessories from D A V E Fine Jewellery? You’ll make it work. You’ve a penchant to visit the trendiest places and your Instagram is populated with amazing pictures. Some of your favourites: Grilled unagi at Uya 四代目菊川, craft beers at The Great Beer Experiment, over-the-top milkshakes at The House of Robert Timms and unique local icons souvenirs at Supermama.
You’re a special kind of person, Mr/Ms Deal Hunter! You were born with a nose to sniff out the best buys. When you purchase something, it has to be worth every dollar. Birkenstock having a sale on last season’s designs? 25 per cent off for certain cardholders at Superga? One-for-one deals at Starbucks or paying with points? You’ll be the first in line!
Let’s get down to business, Mr/Ms Person on a Mission! To you, a shopping trip is more of a surgical strike than a browsing experience. You swing by The Shirt Bar to pick up some shirts you ordered (you called ahead to reserve them), grab some workout gear from Calvin Klein Performance, get a coffee to go from STYLE by STYLE VIBES Cafe — and then you’re on your way again.
