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!
