here i am, being my usual self- which is definitely not gangnam style. besides working in gangnam, i really have no interest in hanging around that area at all. im actually working as an intern at coex right now, which is a bit painful. coex is the world trade center of seoul, but attached is the largest underground shopping mall in asia, that has literally all of the shops and brands i absolutely love in one place. everyday i walk by them, and i wave hello *through a window* to a sparkly pair of shoes or a beautiful allsaints jacket.
today, i went to publique cafe which is at the coex mall. theres a new fancy hawaiian cafe opening up soon (im intrigued by anything with the word hawaii attached), and my other option is dean & deluca. i spent my time filling out this leather planner i snagged at #foodweekkorea. its a perfect size, looks and feels exactly like a moleskine, and only cost me 5$!
i was really impressed with the fluidity of kim hye in’s poses. she was incredibly comfortable in front of all the streetstyle photographers looking to get their shot in. probably even more so than some of the models i shot. i really love how she conquered the feat of wearing oversized from head to toe without looking bulky or losing her femininity. the choker necklaces we keep seeing on the girls of seoul fashion week always catch my eye, as does her cartoon-ish watch bracelet.
time to get organized on this blog! i realized it wasn’t a good idea to have a ‘fashion’ category, considering 99% of my posts just end up categorized as such. so now you can jump to the type of posts you prefer a lot quicker with categories like: personal style, streetstyle, womenswear, menswear, etc.
a lot of the streetstyle i shot at fashion week happened to be of couples, or merely just friends in pairs. it really looked quite cute together when their concepts were similar, or sometimes exactly the same. i saw the “seoul sisters” everyday at fashion week, and their couple looks were always so strong! i love these sequined jumpsuits. i looked into it, and they are indeed real sisters haha. their vibe reminds me of the song sisters, but their style is particularly reminiscent of aimee / song of style. also, im really jealous of their hair… its so beautiful! actually in korea, im basically jealous of everyones hair. if you want a peek at their blog, visit seoulsisters.se.

happy halloween everyone! i love the freshness of the air on halloween night – i feel like its the epitome of fall. although korean air is missing that smell of burning wood, as people start to use their fireplaces. today i went to monster cupcakes to celebrate with my friend, satchi. not only were the cupcakes absolutely adorable (my photos don’t really do them justice – there was 10 other different designs), they were absolutely delicious. not too sweet, but just right. and oh so fluffy. i had the tiramisu flavor (left) and satchi tried the cafe mocha flavor (right). stylenanda and a lot of the other shops had really cute halloween displays all around hongdae as well.
later, we went to cafe les arbres to “study”, but of course we didnt even have time to open our books from chatting too much. of course, i would love the idea of partying on halloween night, but it isnt what it used to be. not interested in partaking with everyone using halloween as an excuse to show off as many body parts as possible. clothed and happy, my next stop is hitting up the movie theater with le boyfriend.
some couple snaps from seoul fashion week. we all know asia is famous for giving birth to the ‘couple tee’, which is when a couple wears matching tshirts and then that spread to sneakers, watches, and everything else you could imagine. i had never seen a couple pull that off and not look totally lame until fashion week! besides that one couple, usually people just go with similar concepts. on their own, they could look great, but with their partner, they can look excellent. this isnt something unique to korea. i think “fashion people” everywhere around the world have this habit, but korean people employ it on a more daily basis. literally asking eachother “what are you going to wear today?”. it kind of adds a little spice to your day haha. like playing tag-team dress up.
i don’t want to keep flooding the blog with so much content from ss15 (even though it was quite the fashion adventure) so i’ll start mixing it up from here on out! its already the 29th of october, so for the next few days im going to enjoy as many halloween themed things as i can. i am such a sucker for these marketing ploys.. (considering my major was marketing, you’d think i would be a little bit smarter with my money). i cannot stop eating halloween themed cupcakes, cookies .. and as i type this i am eating a ghost donut. let me know on the facebook page or in the comments what posts you prefer!
