Here is a belated post of some early spring outfits I happened to snap while it was still brisk outside!  It took forever for Korea to get warm this year so I was wearing jackets and long sleeves for what seemed like forever D:

Pastel hobo outfit from my trip to Japan ^^

Stripey version and my outfit that I wore to interview Hyung Tae Kim! Whole outfit is from various areas in Korea~  Spike black shoes I scored for 28,000 won in Dongdaemun underground.  Nara’s mother bought me the pink jacket for about 100,000 which is a little pricey, but this is because the quality of the fabric is very nice.

Shirt was sponsored by The Jamy and is from the Korean shop Aura J that they sell (internationally! yay!) Shoes and skirt are from good old G-market!

gah I love these things so much.  I feel like a retro mod girl in them, plus they are super high!

As most of you know, I am a big fan of finding graffiti in Korea~  Happened to stumble upon this adorable wall WAY WAY WAY back in Hongdae around a cafe we had a business meeting at and needed a car to get to.  Wish it was walkable!

Cute blue knit sweater with bits of rainbow threading in it!!  Scored this for only 15000 won at Gangnam station along with a really cute star blouse for 10,000.

You can find so many amazing cheap rings in Korea ^^ especially around Hongdae! I think I paid 5,000

Nara looking all fancy in his goodies from Hongdae as well… we buy so many accessories there at the Mapo Kiosks!

Saw these exact same glasses on sale in Tokyo for almost 2500 yen ($25!) In Seoul he got them for 10,000 won ($10!)

My shoes are courtesy of the awesome Korean punk online shop Bloody Cat we featured a while ago! Nara bought his online and customized with spikes from Dongdaemun wholesale fabric market ^^  if you like to modify clothing or make things it is HEAVEN!  Will do a feature soon

My Skeleton knit sweater is from Japanese brand Glad News which has a store at the D-Cube City Mall in Sindorim!

Love this necklace~ I got it from Galaxxxy in Japan, but I am almost positive it is just from Dongdaemun.

These are all the brisk spring outfits I think I photographed!  Will add more later if I find them^^ Please let me know if you enjoy outfit posts and Nara and I will try to do them again in the future…or at least maybe seasonally? lol

      Thank you! 😀 Still a process, but hopefully I can share all the details soon! I got that skirt in Japan, but it is totally from Korea 😀 Hongdae area (depending on the season and trends) tends to carry these sorts of skirts a lot for very cheap <3

    I love the fact that men in Korea can be very fashionable and colorful without being labled as a homosexual.
