" Do you know the Pashion Bag-uh?"
One of my most recent discoveries is the "no name korean purse". Koreans love their accessories and notably love their bags. You can get bags of all shapes, colors and sizes in train stations, on street carts, or at random cutesy stores for.. wait for it only 10,000 won which is roughly about $8.70 USD. Not a bad buy right? What's in a name anyway? Now they may not be name brand but they are super cute. Speaking of a recent "pashion" purchases, did I ,mention that I love Konglish on fashion items (Konglish is bad Korean Englishee, which you see often, on store fronts, accessories, and clothing) Case and point, in Myeongdong I bought the cutest blue leather satchel with the words" New York 5th Ayenue" stamped on it. Wow Ayenue? Really? I love it. Or a shirt I saw at E-mart-uh that said " Ther is a smile of happyness, I love the world in your heart. It shine forever days" One of the most I.T. savvy countries and no one even thinks to do a spelling or grammar check before printing.Oh Korea!I love the korean compulsion to everything cutesy. Even if your aren't, you will be after living here. Oh and just for your edification PINK is a universal color in Korea... it's not just for the ladies.
I'm going to blindfold myself in my closet and pick out a killer outfit with the go hard approach to "pashion" here.Who knows I might start a trend. From this day forth would deem Korean "pashion" as "retarded sophistication". Bryant Park eat your heart out!
Confucius says: when in "pashion" doubt, just turn the lights out, make a go for random clothes, You will be the "pashionista" as far as Korea goes
