Layered to perfection

Post December1

Colder temperature calls for more things to put on- although less really is more. On a typical five-level Likert scale, I’m the one that sits on the “strongly agree” dot when the question is, “You consider the time spent putting on clothes one of the most unproductive daily activities.” Having spent longer than necessary number…

Dear Seoul: Zara Flagship Opening Party

It’s like the flu that’s extremely contagious. Any “hot” international brand will land in Seoul and as soon as it’s “hotness” is certified by the few, it will immediately take off- and I mean take off. As much as “Korean Fashion” seems to have gained serious popularity around the globe, Koreans will always have a…

Sparkly winter

Was in Seoul for two days before leaving for Milan… My excuse was that a friend was getting married that weekend. While contemplating what to wear (wedding outfit has to be the most difficult to put together) I thought I’d be nice and wear something feminine hence the bodycon dress… but toughen it up with…

Until we meet again

Inspiration comes from everywhere. but nothing comes even close to nature. Autumn came. and went. but it’s still vividly alive in my head. Korea, where the footprints of ancestors proudly coexist. ‘Will you please stay a while?’ I asked- no, I begged. She wouldn’t. couldn’t. Then she left, without a word. And the yellow leaves…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2013 Streetstyle

Taking a break from the Seoul Fashion Week coverage. Street fashion is a major source of inspiration for many, and because Seoul street fashion always presents something different and unique, I insisted on covering the streets as well even though I know my photographer already has more than enough on his plate. What a lovely…

Autumn Shower

It’s definitely gotten chilly yet I’m enjoying every bit of it. Thinking Autumn is probably the best time to visit Korea because everything about it seems to be just about perfect, especially the leaves that are slowly but surely turning yellow and red. This being the first Autumn that I’m spending in Seoul, it’s that…

“Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.”

Took a trip to N Seoul Tower today to unwind a bit. Didn’t know what to expect because last time we were there, we didn’t get to stay long as it had rained a lot. Plus, it’s a whole different story when you get there by car.. this time, we were completely dependent on public…

That thing you do

I know I can be bipolar sometimes but I’m mostly happy these days with generally positive feelings towards Seoul. This fall weather just couldn’t be more perfect, it’s even better than the California weather which I used to call ‘heavenly.’ I just love the way the wind brushes against my cheeks, how the leaves are…

FNO Seoul

Fashion’s Night Out is so much more fun when you can actually do boutique-hopping without having to worry about your car. I spent the last two FNOs in Los Angeles and neither quite met my expectations. For those unfamiliar, FNO is a global fashion event sponsored by Vogue which began in 2009 in an attempt…
