So… I’ve decided to be part of this, after much consideration.hehe. Please welcome me!
Looking through the wardrobe as I did my spring-summer cleaning, I discovered that, even though I don’t make a lot of fashion purchases I have built a solid ‘Me’ style over the years with the pieces I buy. You know, sometimes when friends see a piece of fashion and go “It’s so you!”? There’s definitely a ‘Korea’ in the ‘Me’ style, since my recent purchases are mainly from Korea (thanks to online shopping)
[Side note: for the uninitiated, ‘noona’ is a term used by a younger Korean man to address an older sister. As to why I’m koreanoona, please watch this video, featuring former Miss Korea Kim Sa Rang and a then-17 year old unknown Lee Seung Gi in his debut hit. You are also welcome to check out the 100 photos of His Gorgeous Self on my FB.]
Looking at myself in the mirror last Saturday as I was prepping up for the Lee Seung Gi fan meet, it was quite startling to see my current preference:
- Black eyeliner – check.
- Wavy brown-dyed hair – check.
- Full fringe – check.
- Body hugging denim dress – check.
- 4-inch killer heels – check
Yup, looks Korean to me.
Anyways… on to today’s choice of fashion. Ironically, all items today are not from Korea. And it started with this bag.
Had an important meeting later today and wanted to look my business best. But I’d already packed last night into the fuchsia pink Kate Spade (a gift – u guys know I’m cheapo and I won’t ‘invest’ in branded bags right? ;). So what would go with the pink? This grey tweed-print dress with asymmetrical neckline has pink trimmings on them, so that’ll go with the bag. I paired it with a grey cropped jacket. Interestingly, this jacket is designed by the interior designer for my home. She’d branched out to create her own fashion line DYEL. Nice stuff there 🙂
I usually wear this dress with my baby pink heels (a bit about that in another post…) but it’s not the most comfy pair of shoes, so I opted for my trusted grey fabric heels instead (at a sensible 3.5-inch, haha. may have to run around…)
There, I am ready to face the start of the work week!
