What's up Korea?
I've decided to post a weekly blog post about whatever comes to my mind. I hadn't realized how much I suppress or keep to myself since being here in Korea. My cousin came to visit me last weekend and not until she came and experienced Korea for herself did I realize how a big change it was for me too. I have friends and such out here but I've really never shared with anyone the challenges and things I have face and still face today. So these weekly posts will open my thoughts to you and give you all a rundown of what's happening around me and to me in Korea.

I hope you all enjoy these photos! They were taken at the breathtaking Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul. My good photographer friend created some amazing photos.

While we were there the most random thing happened to me. A group of girls happened to be filming with a camera crew. It looked like they were doing a reality show or something. So while I was changing shoes my friend tapped me on the shoulder and was like "Hey I think those girls want to talk to you." I was in total shocked when I looked over and they were slowing inching toward me with smiling and shy faces. They first spoke to me in Indonesia (where they were from) because they thought I was Indonesian also! Lol. Random. So I told them, no just American. They asked if I was a model which I busted out laughing like you guys gotta be kidding me! They then proceeded by asking how they could get their hair like mine. (We did a few photos that day so my hair was down at the time.) I just replied "Oh wash it then shake your hair really crazy" which made them all laugh. Lastly they asked me to sing which was totally random so I chose for all of us to sing Big Bang's Fantastic Baby. So we all danced and chanted "Boom Shaka Laka" Really fun AND random. Lol. ONLY in Korea. So please enjoy this collection of photos showcasing my style. I will continually do street style photos like this and post. I was really excited because Korea has such amazing scenery so I felt these street photos would really stand out. My photographer and I had a blast doing these photos. He wanted to do a photo of me crossing the street which was exhilarating to do! Also some in the middle of a medium of a busy street. Gotta love the bravery :)
This week's K Style DIY is all about Big Bang! First we start with a GD "Fantastic Baby" inspired DIY and also talk about the Evolution FUBU has made in Asia.

I couldn't believe the words I was reading. "Bankruptcy?" No, no, no, no and again no. How could this happen to the woman and clothing line that inspired who I am? How could no investors want to keep the brand alive?

Working at the Betsey Johnson brand was (and still is) a life time dream for me. To just have a moment to be in the presence of the most fierce woman in fashion, would mean the world. My current aspirations were to franchise one of her boutiques here in Asia. I've always felt such a connection to Betsey and the brand. Even my VERY first post for this blog was about the Betsey Johnson Trunk show I attended! In college I did my Brand Marketing final on her. I remember my male fashion instructor being quite frightened and non understanding of what made Betsey so special. He preferred more of the classic Tom Ford style: suits. cardigans, sweaters, scarves, so seeing me so estatic in presenting Betsey Johnson was not something he knew was coming. After seeing my enthusiastic presentation he then understood what made the BJ aesthetic so captivating.
Finally! Yes Finally I have started the fashion vlogging series on Korean fashion that I have been juggling for months. I didn't realize how much work is required to make a professional, content worthy video, but I am happy I now know!
