Leo of Vixx for Staff Korea

Leo of Vixx posing in a white jacket for Staff Korea

See the Vixx Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook for Staff here!

Sadly, Staff only has locations in South Korea, so I found some similar options to the trendy jacket Leo is wearing above for our non-Korea-dwelling readers. ^^ Most of them have longer sleeves, but roll ‘em up, and they definitely give off that Vixx vibe! Check them out!

Bomi in Mr. Chu

I received a request on the Kpop Fashion Facebook page for Bomi’s outfits in Mr. Chu. Their looks are all so lovable! I decided to focus on the outfit with the pink dress that Bomi wore in the shot above. Boy was it hard to find something similar! >_< ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I love how each of the girl’s outfit are a little different in these part of the video. Bomi’s stylist did a very nice job with her dress, I love the detailed lace collar and scarf attachment, as well as the almost body-con style accents on the sides of the dress. Here is what I found to help you get a Bomi Mr. Chu look:

The next one is simple, but it would be easy to dress up. You could apply some yellow, pink, and white floral fabric detail and it’d look close!

Here’s a scarf to go with it!

Don’t forget the feet! ~^^

My New High Tops!

I got my first pair of high tops!!!!! I love them! They’re comfy, and while not super-girly, they’re feminine enough to not get mistaken as boy’s shoes. I got them on sale from Payless for $16 – what a deal! (Update: Since I wrote this post back in May, they’ve gone down to just $12!) Oppa’s been wanting to get me a pair for awhile now; it’s one of his favorite looks from the K-pop fashion world. When we saw these, he said to himself ‘now those are K-pop’. As you can see from the above images, their definitely a common part of the scene. You can have the same ones I got here:

What: Black and Pink High Tops

My First Cleo-Cat Fashion Items!

Hi all! I wanted to share with you some awesome korean fashion items that Cleo-Cat Fashion, an online wholesale fashion  store based in Singapore, kindly shipped to me to review! They’re so cute!

Watch my video review as I open the items here!

Here’s me trying on everything at once! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ^^

I added my own belt!

Add some cute heels! (These are from DSW by the way. Check out their clearance section!)

IMG_2117

Look at that cute ribbon in the back!

I’m Sulli’s height lol so this size Small dress is a tad short, but you can easily put some shorts underneath like I did and you can’t even notice, right? ^^ Another cute way to wear it would be with some leggings when the weather gets cooler.

These items I got are so feminine, I love them! But the store isn’t limited to that, they have comfy tomboy to chaebol heiress styles, so there’s something for everyone! ^^  They have SOOO many items to choose from, so there’s no doubt that you’ll find several products that you just have to have. The products are very affordable, too, so go ahead and throw that extra top in the shopping cart. ;) Just a tip: make sure you get the right size. As I mentioned, I’m tall, so the size small was a little short, and tight. I’ve burned some inches off in the past month on a new fitness program I’m on so it actually fits better now! Lol. But I will still pick a large next time. Just use their handy chart and see what will fit you. ^^

Happy shopping! <3

Block B’s Viewer Mission Promise


Screenshot of Block B making a promise to their future viewers.

(Written on April 24, 2014)

Block B just came out with a new reality tv show “5 Minutes Before Chaos”. Have you seen it? It’s first episode took place on April 10th, and includes the boys completing missions and ‘going above and beyond’ what the average idol would do. I haven’t seen it, but I did get to laugh at  some of their funny introductory/promotional videos on Youtube before the show aired. I also saw the above video where one of the members (could you tell me which one he is, please! >_< I’m a Block B beginner! :P) was wearing a very nice black and white leather jacket. It caught my eye, and I found a similar one for women. I think it’s beautiful; chic and adventurous at the same time! Motorcycle tour around Seoul anyone? b(^_^)d  하하 Check it out here!

Apink-Mr-Chu-Shoes

Hi all! I mentioned in our last post that Michelle and I would be posting a reaction video to Apink’s Mr. Chu. Sadly, the audio for the video was not…well, audible! But, I will still be posting on it here and now!

Mini Repon sent us a request for the black and white shoes the members were wearing inside the box on the official mv. So, I’ve hunted down some look-alikes. I know this is a hot look right now, because I had found more options the other week when searching, but today when I re-visited the links they had been sold out! You might want to snatch up these following options while they’re still available!

They can jazz up any shirt you already own, and it’s a fun project to do with friends or family. :) Make sure to listen to Exo while making! ^^

Or City Sleek?

This month has been a big month for me! I arrived home from a trip to Costa Rica with my family (an adventure!), unpacking and then packing again to move into our new home! Oppa and I left our little cabin on the outskirts of town to move into a house in the city, where we’ll live for the next few months or so. Whew! It’s been an exciting time, though, this is the first time we’ve moved since we’ve been married! Urban life is different from rural living, and though I was homesick for the first couple of days, I’m enjoying the change! I realized I like both environments. Connecting this to fashion, I also like both clothing styles. K-pop hasn’t often “gone country”, but I did find a few examples. (See above!) And of course, there are plenty of city style outfits to choose from! Which style do you prefer? Tell us why!
