One of the biggest malls in the city, Phoenix Market City in Kurla is a palatial treat for shopping lovers. There’s every possible brand you could think of, spread out across three floors with interesting installations all across. If your’e planning on wearing heels to shop, drop the idea and opt for your most comfy pair of sneakers, because there’s a lot to see. We tried to control our budgets and only shop for the best of the best – all under a budget of INR 10,000.

When we entered the mall, we could not help but notice the Sale sign at Aldo, and entered despite knowing a shoe would probably cost us around INR 8,000. Still giving it a shot was worth it, though – we exited grinning ear-to-ear after getting our hands on a pair of sunglasses for INR 1,290.

H&M is the pride of Phoenix Market City cause – it’s the biggest store there, and it’s offering T-shirts and tops starting at INR 150 at their current sale. We decided to choose this bag for it reminded us of the good old college days. Durable and the right size, it came at a price tag of INR 1,999.

This T-shirt dress with a slit on the left side is our choice for a care-free night out scene. You can choose to pair it with shorts or just join the #nopants movement along with the Kardashians. This cost us INR 1,695.

Money Left: INR 231

Colorbar

To complete the shopping spree, we picked up the new Just Smoky Kajal from Colorbar for INR 650. It was a smooth-gliding kajal that’d be perfect for date night shenanigans.

Money Left: INR -419

We used up the remaining budget to cool ourselves down with a Mr Bubbles Tea for INR 130. Hey, it had been a long, tiring day.
