The Empire Fashion Cafe: Shop, Chill, Repeat!

A fusion between fashionable wears and coffee with cake: heck yes! It’s Marikina City’s first combination of its own when retails and food come together under one roof of pristine setting, convenient browsing and the smell of baked goods: Empire Fashion Cafe opens its door to people of the East!

My ‘lil Rabbit – Lanivi – and I ventured the hilly street where the Empire Fashion Cafe is. The cafe had been advertising its brand, promising three virtues for its consumers: Shop. Chill. Repeat. The place is too nearby (a 15 minute walk, yes!) and who couldn’t resist to stare and want all these products that are now handily available? What was once just posts at Instagram and waiting for packages to arrive now turned into real displays of neat clothing, accessories and novelty trinkets that are ready to be bought. My wallet certainly isn’t ready…. but it doesn’t stop me and anyone to visit and enjoy this really interesting place. The staff are pleasantly nice, the cakes and cookies look scrumptious and they are open until 10PM! Cool, yeah?

Based on their official website, the following brands (a mix of Apparels, Shoes, Fashion Accessories, Skin Care, Beauty Products and Novelty Items) present are:

  • Ripples By Jenny – street fashion, basic tops
  • Hapee Jonee – swim wears, dresses
  • Hip in Manila – street fashion

I’m particularly eying Gyaru Shoppe since I followed them both at Facebook and Instagram. Additionally I fancy Japan Goodies TRS for their Japanese beauty products like Shiseido, Tokyo Love Soaps, Naturactors, Kit Kat chocolates (and many many many mooore!) and Vanity Nook for their Thailand beauty products. I’m ever so elated and ecstatic to know these stuff are just so close by! Yaaaay~
