I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

For those who don’t follow me on Twitter or my worldwide telepathic broadcasting (how could you not?) I’ve been in Seoul, South Korea (The country next to Sweden for those who missed out on Geography in Highschool) since the 30th of March. Since then I’ve been hustled around relatives’ houses meeting grandma 1,2, uncle & aunt #1, 2, 3, 4, 5…. Let’s just put it this way, my dad has 4 siblings and my mother has 5 – and I only packed heels.

I’ve had a chance to attend the last two days of Seoul Fashion Week as well, courtesy of Adrienne & Lynette of Kokokoreano, and soon will be bombarding this place with 2 days’ worth coverage. Brace yourselves, I know how hard it was during London Fashion Week.

Thank you Kit of Style Slicker for snapping these photos for me. Man, you’re good.

  20. Wow have fun in Seoul and can’t wait to read about your experience for Seoul fashion week, sounds like a lot of fun! I know what you mean about meeting a seemingly endless amount of aunts and uncles. When I visit my mom’s side of the family in Hong Kong, it’s exactly the same and a bit overwhelming!

  77. I love your style and I’m a big fan of your blog :)



  79. Gorgeous outfit! Lovely post

  80. I read your blog rigorously and have finally convinced myself to attempt your Rodarte knit DIY and am failing terribly. Is there any tips you have to get the colors all uneven because my strips seem too straight ;[ Thanks!

  81. OOOoo I’m so glad you’re trying, good luck with that :D!
    In order not to get the strips too straight you should decrease that colour by 2-3 stitches every row! So instead of continually doing 2 grey & 8 red on a 10-stitch row – do 4 grey, 6 red on the next…then 5 grey, 5 red on the following… so the colourblocks become less blocky! Hope that helped a bit!

  82. LOVE these shots !

  83. dodz

    i thought you were in the subway… BTW i love the shot

  84. Adorable knitting coat. Stylish and modern. Great to combined with other looks, as casual as classical. Beautiful!

  85. oh i love the stripes with the leather! great inspiration if you want to wear leather but not team it with studs or ripped vests! also a big fan of the nude/coral shoes, random thought but it would be a lovely lipstick colour!
