I got a bit bored with my Catwa look so I am back with my LeLutka. I wanted to change the overall look too and decided to feature a contemporary urban outfit. The knotted cropped t-shirt and sweatpants are from monaLisa, a new product sponsor I look forward featuring in my blog on a regular basis. Fashion has evolved so much. Who would have thought walking around in heels and sweatpants would be fashionable? Even mixing formal jewelry with streetwear… it seems like everything goes today. There no norms to fashion, just your attitude and confidence. 🙂
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.
It’s quite late at night here in Seoul, but I am having trouble sleeping… So here I am sharing a new look from Legendaire. This look is very me. It’s definitely something you would see me wear in RL… t-shirt, long skirt, and sneakers… comfortable and easy, perfect to walk around town.
I have spent the weekend cleaning up my inventory. I still own a few prim shoes, mainly boots which were in desperate need of an upgrade. Inventory management is something I struggle with forever. It seems like there is no end to it. I really admire those who are disciplined and clean up regularly. Anyways, I did manage to take a bit of a break and take some pictures in my new dress from alaskametro
Happy Lunar New Year! As many of you know already a number of Asian countries celebrate Lunar New Year. Korea is no exception and we get three days off. It’s one of the most significant traditional Korean holidays, and many of us return to our hometowns to visit our parents and relatives. It’s typically a family holiday, similar to Thanksgivings in the US. Anyways, I am wearing a modern interpretation of hanbok, traditional Korean garments. The skirts of traditional hanbok are longer, covering the feet. This modern version is shorter. The geometric prints in black and white are very modern too. The hat, known as gat, were traditionally worn by men. No one wears them anymore, but I was inspired by Carolina Herrera’s 2011 Ready to Wear Spring Collection. The collection was largely inspired by traditional Korean clothes, and I thought it was quite cool to see these hats down the runway. Oh well, I have a long day ahead of me… We have fairly big family and it will be quite rambunctious with all the kids! Happy Year of the Monkey!
