As I walked around the University of Business and Economics, I saw some very nice looking single-colored coats on display at Hongying, a brand of women's apparel. So I decided to take a look.
Upon entering into this Hongying retail outlet, I first examined the red woolen overcoat. It felt very warm, and red is a popular winter color here in Beijing. Another black coat looked very stylish for formal occasions. Both are priced at RMB 658.
I then went to the shop's hats and bags section, and picked out a grey hat to try on. The design is a spiffy style which fits Chinese office ladies very well (RMB 138).
According to the shop assistant, Hongying mainly offers new arrivals in its limited space. So you rarely find clearance items. Prices range from RMB 100 to RMB 1000. The shop assistants can speak a little English to communicate with foreign customers. All prices are fixed.
What I appreciated:
The grey hat in modern style
