Seoul, South Korea (Stylenanda Myeongdong)

Coat: thrifted | Grey Heattech: Uniqlo | Cropped Sweater: Topshop | Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters
Cat Bonnet: Bershka | Bag: Le Sportsac | Sneakers: Adidas

It was by accident that we saw this pretty pink building in a quiet alley in Myeongdong. It's bright pink color begs for attention but it is established in an unassuming area. One would think it is packed with people but reality says otherwise (though there are quite a number of people and the area of each floor is too small). It is quite difficult to find if you aren't looking around. But I guess the universe conspired for me to land in this alley and be blessed with the beauty that is Stylenanda.

Bandai Makeup Collection

It all started when I was in elementary. Sailor Moon was among the very first anime's I ever watched. And everything was history since then. Anime was a huge part of my childhood so you can only imagine my delight when Bandai started releasing these anime themed makeup. I want to collect them all (but I can't of course because they are quite difficult to obtain if you live outside Japan). I will be getting more in the future for sure but for now, here are what I was able to get:

Trend Report: Layered Ruffles

Top: thrifted | Skirt: Uniqlo | Velvet Shoes: Asos
Earrings: Egg | Bangle: Kate Spade
Lips: The Face Shop Melting Lip Color in Rose Quartz

I am not one to really follow trends. Most of time I am behind by a season or two. I just can't seem to find the reason to purchase trendy items that will most likely be out the next season. But on my lucky days a.k.a days when I go to the thrift store and find something that is on trend, I wouldn't pass the opportunity to purchase something trendy (though lately I have been making trendy purchases on accessories).

Brand To Love: Innisfree

Most of the time, I look at the endorser before I decide to purchase from a certain brand. If I don't like the person endorsing the brand, I tend to pass. But if I like the endorser, I tend to hoard. This is what happened with me and the many Korean cosmetics brands that I love - Innisfree is one of those "many."

San Francisco, California USA (Haight Street And My Favorite Clothing Stores)

This is going to be the last of my San Francisco posts and I am honestly sad about this series ending. I enjoyed my stay there so much and I would love to go back. Of course, like any other trip, there were a few mishaps but everything turned out well in the end and I loved the place. Next time for sure, I will stay longer. And as they say, when a door closes a window opens. Hence, when this series concludes, I will start another one and I am super excited to share my experience. But for now, I hope you enjoy this last post feature Haight Street.

Little Red Dress

Dress: H&M | Inner: Forever 21 | Shoes: Dries Van Noten
Choker: Forever 21 | Belt: SM Dept. Store
Lips: The Face Shop Melting Lip Crayon in Red Nouveau

It is amazing how your style and taste in clothes changes over the years. I was never a fan of the color red and I always thought I looked too skinny in red. But when I saw this in H&M I could not resist. I contemplated hard if I should get it. I didn't try this in store. I was carrying it as I was looking around thinking hard if I should buy it. Alas, I went to the counter and just went for it. Surprisingly, I received so many compliments when I wore this dress and everyone seems to think this is my color. Now I think I like the color red - this shade of red to be exact.
