another look from yeo hyewon before the steve y joni p show. seoul fashion week is coming up again in a month and a bit! unfortunately ill be working full time, so i won’t get to go to very many shows or shoot as much. lucky for me, seoul fashion week also spills over onto the weekend!
its my first time in japan, and im really loving the vibes here. i will definitely be making some weekend trips, before i move back to canada. in fukuoka, people seem to be keen on vintage and skate/surf style. in daimyo, i’ve seen quite a few vintage shop owners wearing huge buffalo hats or statement fedoras or wide brimmed hats. looooove it. this gal had adorable style. love the way some japanese girls wear their blush, and her jewelry is perfection (y).
lalalala do it like a dude (i don’t know any of the words from that song except that part..). a very boyish look on the blog today! dressing in this style is VERY comfy- i see the appeal here. i borrowed the uniqlo button-down from my boyfriend, and the 5panel cap is ours to share. the rest is actually mine, and when worn separately, doesn’t shout “im a tomboy”. i remember at my elementary school, all of the girls went through this tomboy phase, and we used to have contests on who could out-boy who. we would check eachothers tag to make sure we weren’t wearing girl clothes hahaha.
if you would be ever so kind, im entering a contest on #highsnobiety: please vote for me here and i will love you forever!!!
hey! we don’t have a tv in our apartment, so i usually just watch downloaded tv shows or youtube haha. during my late night youtube session, i found this video of korean model and creative director, hyunjeong ji, so i thought i would share it along with a streetstyle photo i took of her at the last seoul fashion week. pink hair, braided denim, some fur casually slung on. this girl knows.
sooo for the past little while, my sleep schedule has been really messed up (ok, lets be honest, nothing new here). i got bored being awake at night all the time (my boyfriend at work), so i decided to venture out to a cafe at 4 or 5am haha. its a big coffee chain, but for some reason this 24 hour location was sooo much prettier than the others ive been to. once again, at a ridiculously early hour, seongmin and i decided to head out to the cafe. not sure who goes on dates at 6am, but it works for us. this coffee crawl was following by some vintage shopping (didn’t find much ;-;) and a trip to a really delicious sandwich shop (rye post), reminiscent of montreal. catch me on instagram for those in between updates: @mialiamani.
hyobin was one of my faves to see around DDP (dongdaemun plaza) during the fashion week madness, just because she always looks so REAL, and always has time for a smile. im digging this 90’s feel with the purple sweater, and chunky boots.
someone complimented me on my very “normcore” style. the first thing that came to mind was “thank you, but its actually just poorcore” haha. i haven’t had money to go shopping in forever! im starting my teaching job at the end of the month, so im very much so looking forward to having a busy schedule again, make everyday at school awesome, and yes, get a paycheck! typically, im so used to my schedule being nonstop busy, that when i have too much downtime, i feel quite lost. moral of the story, being busy, actually makes me motivated to be even busier! *cue the sean paul track*
before i moved to korea, i tried hard to maximize my closet capabilities with as little clothes as possible. i think i did quite well, because although i really don’t have a lot of clothes with me.. i feel i have a lot of pieces which i really love, and there is nothing hiding anywhere in the depths of my closet, so i actually get around to wearing all of it.
