apgujeong, seoul

over the weekend i experienced some of the coldest weather i have ever had to endure. i was in korea with work on a buying trip and it was freezing! i'm pretty sure there was a point i had 6 layers on!

seoul was dope! i loved it there, the food, the shopping, the architecture, everything. you may not agree but it was kind of like mixing chicago, melbourne and hong kong together. it's awesome how each little suburb is so different to each other. crazy busy shopping malls with cheap knock-offs felt like i was back in hong kong's mong kok, while the graffiti lined streets with amazing boutiques and vintage shops, cafe's and that perfect amount of grime  that i love reminded me of some dope spots in chicago and melbourne. then there was the beverly hills type areas which were still great, places like ilmo, corso como and boon the shop gave me my fix for that higher end fashion itch.

the only negative was not having the cash flow to really go nuts. i did manage to get a few things though, my favorite would definitely have to be this vintage piece i picked up. i'm a sucker for embroidery!
