June Favourites

This bag is one of the first shopping adventures I regarded an investment. I was about 20 years old, and I saw this little Italian beauty sitting in the window of some exclusive lady-shop here in Stockholm. I was a student of course and didn’t have much money, but was working part time as a nanny. I said to myself that if this bag is still not sold by the time I’ve made enough money, destiny is telling me to buy it; regardless of the ridiculous price tag. Two or three months after, having sold some stuff from my house, and worked hard at my job, I finally had enough cash and walked into the shop to buy this beautiful red little thing. And I guess it was destiny, and maybe also the appreciation for it is high because I know how hard I worked for it, but either way it’s been my favorite bag ever since.

This silk tie is my favorite, because I think it’s pretty, and it’s YSL, and it was (almost) the cheapest thing I’ve ever bought in a second hand shop. I really love second hand stuff! You can find such treasures for almost no money at all! It’s from Myrorna Second Hand in Stockholm.

This scarf is from a random vintage shop in Stockholm I randomly walked by a few years ago. It’s my all-time favorite accessory because it’s just so pretty. Unfortunately it’s just been lying around at home in the pile with my other scarfs for ages, as up until now, when scarfs have become trendy, I’ve just not found any use for it. So this season I’ve been very happy since I’ve actually been able to use it!

Second Hand Haven

On my way to Caffe Bene, the coffee shop I spend all my days writing at, I decided to check a vintage market out for a minute, which if just slightly off the original route. Realizing that most of the market was yet to be opened, I continued walking. All of a sudden I was at the end of the street, and at the start of a little adventure. I continued down the road in front of me, as I had some spare time on my hands, and little did I know I were to discover that the area I have been living in the past month is a vintage haven beyond measures! If that wasn’t enough, while walking down this unknown road, I look up and to my amazement see the Doota Tower, which is in Dongdaemun – the most famous and largest shopping area in Seoul. I had no idea it was so close to where I live that it only takes about 20 minutes to walk from my front door.

But as I’m not a cheap fashion hunter (the type of thing you find in Dongdaemun), but rather a second-hand bargain hunter, I stayed on the street. After just walking a block I realized that the “vintage market” I knew of before, and have been so hyped about living next to, is just a small part of the hugenormous secondhand neighborhood I live in. I found a second hand shop for just about everything – and I don’t think I will ever need to buy anything new again. Everything from previously owned furniture and home appliances, to clothes and shoes and quality handbags; all have their own separate shops here!

As I am trying to save my money and also not indulge in things I don’t really need, I didn’t buy anything apart from this little silk scarf that went amazingly well with the green color of a secondhand Issey Miyake coat my boyfriend gave me the other day.

I did find an amazing little clutch bag, which I’m thinking of going back for. I only got a quick look, as the owner tried to get 80 000 W for it and I just said “no way”, laughed and walked away. He did lower the price to 50 000 when I said I was a student, so I might get it down to 40 000 – but that’s still a lot of money – I mean, for something I don’t actually need. However, it was real leather and good quality, amazingly beautiful redish-brown color, and barely used at all. Hum, takes some thinking.

By the way, this area I’m talking about is around the Dongmyo subway station, like I said near Dongdaemun. Definitely worth a visit, if you are in Seoul and want some fun shopping experiences!secondhand5

This sweater is perfect for the holidays. I wear it with a cute dark green shirt underneath to Oomph up the holiday appeal. I love it, its both warm enough but not super warm and its super cute. I got this sweater from Bags that Fit. The edging looks like snowflakes or just some intricate sewing done it Santa’s workshop.

Oui Oui J’adore Paris sale!

Ladies! The Paris sale has started last wednesday and it was crazy! Here in the Netherlands we normally start with 30% off. However, the French sale will go up to 50%. Everyone was carrying at least 3 shopping bags of merchandise and it was so crowded. Especially the shoe department. They had a lot of different brands there and all had their own stand/corner. There was a really long line at the jimmy choo, chanel, prada and many different brands. All women turned into hyenas seeing the 50% off sign. They will grab the shoe or bag as soon as you put back in the rack. They are also circling around you in the hope that you will put the stuff back that you have in hands. It was such a new experience for me! But I really liked it. I only bought 2 things in the sale. I could have bought more, but that would be only because of the sale greed and not because of necessity. So I bought an A.P.C. sweater with 50% discount and a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag with 40% off.

Weird, I have been updating this blog for quite long time but only this time I tried to think of sharing what fashion is all about. LOL! Anyway, fashion for me is the way you manage your own style and designs. No matter how simple or elegant it is the big deal is on how you portray it. And also according to wiki: Fashion is a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing.

The more technical term, costume, has become so linked in the public eye with the term “fashion” that the more general term “costume” has in popular use mostly been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while the term “fashion” means clothing generally, and the study of it.

New CLN purse for my sissy!

My sister got this new purse yesterday. It was delivered right to her office and take note got this for FREE. A company told me to review their items and in return can have one. SO lucky that I got the opportunity to review and got one for free. So since my sister wants new purse, I gave it to her. I have a lots of purse here so time to share the blessings.

My sister describes this one as a nice one, the color is like a bit choosy one but my sis is more younger than me so this fits her well.

Let’s go for Korean Clothing!

Korean clothing and style is traditionally known by its color and patterns, with simple lines without any pockets at all, they called it Hanbok in South Korea while in North Korea they called it Choson-ot. It can be worn by both man and woman, where it has a long sleeve that covers the arms and has a long garment on the side and back part of the dress. These are the kinds of attire they use for festivals and special occasions in Joseon Dynasty.

This kind of dress can be worn on a formal or semi-formal occasions; the well-known people or rulers of the land wear a different one than the people who are called the aristocrats that time. But in 20th century these attires made some changes for any reasons. The Korean style of clothing has evolved; they made a modern style which they called the Korean Wave or Hallyu.

Korean fashion today has increased in their popularity because it has it’s unique designs that marked the world today. They also prove that they can also create accessories, bags, shoes and even jewelry that make Korean fashion really over empowering the world’s clothing lines today. Try for yourself and what’s new in the fashion world.
