Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2017 - Backstage Moments with Gayeon Lee

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show does not show how hectic backstage is at a fashion show is. I mean it does, but it's a whole 'nother beast in person.

I was lucky enough to be one of the backstage photographers for Gayeon Lee's show at Seoul Fashion Week this year. She is the absolute sweetest, and I've loved her designs since first trying to get tickets two years ago (but her show was on a weekday as the best always seem to be). Of course I couldn't attend, as back then I taught and was only able to go to the Saturday shows, but I still fell in love seeing the photos online.

Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2017 - Ti:baeg

Can a dress be anymore perfect? 
Ti:baeg impressed at Seoul Fashion Week with it's feminine style, inspired streetwear, and traditional inspirations. I might need to make a trip to Doota for their upcoming spring collection - because this dress is the definition of perfection.

Trend: The Denim Skirt

As the fall weather rolls in, I find my style changing from flowing bohemian, to something a little edgier. This season's biggest trends are checked blazers, and the baker hat... and while I do own one of the two, that post won't come for awhile. In the mean time, I'm stilling rocking summer's hottest trend: the denim skirt. Okay, I shouldn't say "still." Last weekend was the only weekend I wore one, having just bought my first in the beginning of September!

The Little White Dress


I've had a slight obsession with the beach since freezing in Korea last year. I was in complete and utter denial there, and kept buying the beachiest, warm weather clothes I could... it didn't matter that it was -10ÂșC with 60% humidity (that's cold, even for a Calgarian!)! I've been taking advantage of the beaches here in Vancouver this summer, stocking up on new bathing suits (still obsessed with white one pieces), and new dresses.

I'm lucky to have friends who are as into visiting art galleries and museums as I am. Even luckier because they're usually willing to take a few photos too (in all fairness, if they want photos, they know I'm always willing to take some as well). I think I changed outfits nearly five times when my friend and I decided last minute to check out the Vancouver Art Gallery! It was one of the first hot days of the season, so I wanted something cool and breezy, but not too casual. Silk tops are my preferred choice, and this Free People top is perfect with it's open back. I should probably go braless next time though....

Photos by my Dad!<3


In celebration of Father's Day, I present to you the photos I forced my dad to take during a family trip to Vancouver. He's gotten to be quite good under my tutelage! But seriously, after I returned from Korea (and realizing how much easier it is to have another person take photos of my for Instagram or the blog instead of a tripod and remote), my dad has become my go to photographer. I think he may have hated it/me at first, because I'd constantly yell at him to squat in order to make me look taller (tricks of the trade, I tell ya). Or I'd complain about his composition. But seriously, he's okay now! Even with a few months break, he still remembers how I like my photos taken. Happy Father's Day!!!! Love you Dad!

Millennial Pink

Photos by Piotr Filipek


Spring is one of my favorite seasons, especially when there's all sorts of different flowering trees, as I'm sure you know given how much I talk about cherry blossom season in Vancouver, and previously Korea. And what's more perfect for spring than blush hues?! Although apparently, we no longer call it "blush" or even "rose quartz." Yes, it has a new name. "Millennial Pink."

Dress Over Pants

Since moving to Vancouver, I've rediscovered my two favorite things about the city. Food, and cherry blossoms.

#SmileFearlessly - Trying Smile Brilliant's Whitening System

Oh the bane of loving coffee (and tea… and chocolate… and even a new affinity for red wine)… and having teeth prone to staining. A good buffering from my hygienist and unsightly coffee stains are no more, but what’s a girl to do when she only wants to pay for that once a year?

A Cozy Sweater

The last of the snow pictures. One must admit, these can't help but make me feel a little bit nostalgic. I'm pretty sick of all the rain in Vancouver (hereby known as Raincouver).

Does anyone else think they move at the most inopportune times? It seems that now that I've resettled again, I've been asked to numerous events in my previous abodes. I guess I'll just reminisce instead... and maybe mope a little.

Winter Layering

Exciting news! I will now no longer have any snow pictures (that's totally a lie, there will be at least one more post with snow). I've officially relocated to Vancouver – a haven of greenery despite Canada's harsh winters.

While I say I won't be posting so many snowy photos anymore, I don't know how true that is, as I seem to have brought the snow to Vancouver with me. Just call me Elsa (maybe I should go blonde?)?

Happy Valentine's Day! 

Nothing is more suited for the romantic hallmark holiday than a beautiful dress, and I've been wanting this Self Portrait piece for awhile now.

Cozy with JORD Watches - GIVEAWAY!

Jord watches, wood watches, uniqlo, minimalistic outfit, winter fashion, culottes

The weather is slowly warming up (I swear we've been going from balmy spring days, to sudden cold snaps for the last couple weeks), which means light knits and my favourite culottes. This outfit is so simple, and has been on rotation for basically all my lazy, but still need to look fashionable days – but to be honest, it's rather bland by itself. I wore something similar awhile back with a statement jacket, but this time I've opted for something a little more cozy and true to Uniqlo's minimalist style. 

Find out more about about how I accessorized such a simple look, and check out the giveaway below!

2016's trends of lace-up shirts and knits, and statement sleeves has followed me into the new year. This lace-up sweater from Zaful followed me back to Korea, was worn often in Vancouver (gotta love living out of a carry-on), and is still on weekly rotation here in Calgary.

The Feather Skirt

Happy New Year everyone! I've been loving playing with different textures in 2016, and I'm sure that will continue in 2017. To start – a new purchase I've wanted for a long time – a feather skirt!

It's taken a while to find the perfect one at the perfect price, but Club Monaco never lets me down during their Boxing Week sales.

Of course, I've already managed to rip a few feathers off during a new years party, so I'm a little wary about wearing it again. I promise it won't just be sitting in my closet though – I have a lot of outfit ideas for it, just no going to parties anymore. 

Even though it looks cold here, it really wasn't, so I couldn't help but drag a friend outside to take pictures of the falling snow. It's so pretty, right? And it's much more worthwhile to take pics in the snow than on a frigidly cold day with slush on the ground (if you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, you know what I was doing today). I added a jacket and scarf just in case (I swear, my legs are the last to feel the cold) but I really didn't need them. I love the combination of leather jacket and soft feathers and wool. It adds a bit of structure and edge (otherwise known as streetstyle, right?) to an otherwise very soft and feminine outfit.

I'll be leaving for Korea again on Sunday (it's always good to start a new year on a 12 hour flight), and I'm so excited to see my friends again (and make them take pictures hehe) for a couple of weeks. I may also be thinking about going ash blonde while I'm there. Any thoughts?

Since it's a new year, I thought I'd ask you what you'd like to see me write about while I was there? Interesting cafes, shopping? More k-beauty related posts? Leave a comment for any requests or questions that I can answer!
