i’ve been attempting to make our seoul apartment feel more cozy, which is difficult when you know its not your long-term home, and also when you are on a non-existent budget to do so haha. i have been pinteresting (is that a verb?! im so new to this.) washi tape DIY, and its amazing! i made a washi tree on one of our walls. i found some at a japanese boutique called niko and… i also bought an eiffel tower print. we seem to have a lot of eiffel towers in our house so i figure why not go overboard with it. the second print is from one of my favorite movies, léon. if you haven’t seen it, its definitely a must! i bought it at the home, table and deco tradeshow along with some cards.
these days im trying to revive snail mail. ugh, i watched a video about how much time we spend on the internet and i was prompted to delete all the apps on my phone (i re-downloaded them 5min. after….). i really do think receiving a little something in the mail is such a treat, and if it gets me off the internet for that much longer then so be it. plus, seoul has way too many cute things that fit in tiny envelopes.
ps. meet my puppy roo!
although snapbacks got old really fast, this one doesn’t bother me at all. perfectly fitting with the badass, new girl at school look. she is one of the younger models, so she literally is quite new to the scene. i think the length of her pleated dress would be awkward on most, but she makes you wonder why you didn’t try it first.
you can’t go wrong with black and wine paired together, can you? i thought these 3 gals brought some solid daily looks – actually, don’t all koreans always look on point? they really do. i particularly enjoy the polka dot skirt and those unexpected plaid socks, in the first look. i think when an outfit gets too predictable, you can always rely on your socks to throw a curve ball haha. click here for my take on wild socks. *current mood: cry, its wednesday but it really feels like a friday.. but its not friday. boooo.*

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.
