After being bogged down by sickness and tons of work, I’m finally able to post here for you all, and, boy, is this one a doozy! This post — or these posts…I haven’t quite decided yet — are going to be an undertaking just because I saw and did a good bit!
Most Koreans here are very diligent in their skincare; so diligent, in fact, that the routine is something that is implemented early in age, way before we Westerners even think of trying to take any kind of care of our skin (as far as anti-aging goes).
So I was wading through the bulk Refinery29 emails that I STILL receive when I came across one with the subject of “Comfy, breezy dresses that make mornings EASY.” Well, I love comfy, breezy dresses, so I decided to take a gander at the link. Most of the dresses were meh but I came upon this number.

And my heart pitter-pattered with love. Frayed hems? Loose pleats? Long(er) length? Not black? YES!
Then I glanced at the designer name. Rachel Comey.
Damn it. I had to look at the price.
I can just hear The Skincare Guru’s voice now, “You know I can make that dress, right?” followed by the rustling of old McCall’s patterns.
After the Byungmun Seo show a couple of Fridays ago, my blogger friend Star (also of YouTube fame) and I decided to go out and get drinks. After asking for my recommendation, I said, “Well, the Four Seasons has a guest bartender from San Francisco tonight.”
So, Seoul Fashion Week is officially over! And, whew, was it a doozy! I walked around like a zombie for a good 2 days afterwards, but I had such a good time that I wouldn’t change a thing. Since I didn’t really get a chance to dress up last season, this ended up being a fun experience for me…
If there was one fashion show out of the five I saw that changed my perspective on the future of Korean fashion, especially in regards to its relationship to fashion in the western world, it was the Yohanix show.
