Genre’s theme this month is “The Celts”. I am wearing the exclusive for the event by The Annex, a combination of blouse, vest and tartan long skirt. I wish I could wear these items separately. Unfortunately, it’s one piece. I have styled by look with old items in my inventory. The hair however is fairly new from elikatira, a Fifty Linden Friday item a few weeks back. Not sure if would be able to pull this off in RL, but I do love the skirt and would like one for my RL self.
I am so hooked on “Show Me the Money 6”, a Korean rap competition TV show on Mnet. It’s one of the few Korean TV shows I watch, and I love it… There are so many talented individuals. The show has gained quite a bit of popularity even overseas with increasing number of contestants from abroad, mainly from the US. Two of my favorites are Junoflo and Killagramz. Anyways, today’s look was inspired by the show. The show obviously does not focus much on fashion, but it is sponsored by adidas thus we do see quite a bit of streetwear/sportwear. Here is my take.
Haenyeo (해녀) or sea women are female divers in Jeju Island in Korea. Jeju Island is the largest island off the coast of the Korean peninsula known for its mild climate even in winter, a popular tourist destination for Koreans. Haenyeos are known to drive without air tanks. Their diving gear consist of a wetsuit, goggles, flippers, gloves, chest weights, L-shaped weeding hoe, and a net tied to a flotation device. They harvest abalone, octopus, sea urchins, oysters, etc. It is a profession which is declining with modernization but still highly respected. My look today is not a perfect recreation of haenyeo but when I saw this wetsuit from Bare@Rose I knew I wanted to dedicate my post to them.

Nothing very Asian about my outfit today, but the silhouette and demure posture reminds me of old Shanghai… This gorgeous gown is from Vero Modero. The HUD allows you to tint the gown in any color you may like. I chose bright green… I am just so drawn into bright color these days. 🙂
