What are your interests outside fashion & graphic design? [Lorraine]Fishing in pond with barbeque fork.

Well, in all seriousness, I’m a Second World War/military history freak. I may have mentioned this earlier, but I’m more familar with guns and military equipment than fashion designers. I may have also raised a small red flag on some governmental database somewhere during my self-directed design project googling Nazi church, Hitler Youth, admissions into Hitler youth…

Although, I do like throwing forks at fishies in ponds just to see if they poop when they get scared, but unfortunately there aren’t that many ponds in my viccinity to sustain that hobby.

Do you watch Korean dramas and which are your favourite? [Phuong]

I do watch the occasional Korean TV Series, but I’ve only watched a handful. I find myself frequently hurling PG13 insults at the slow-running storyline and end up skipping a few episodes in the middle. The latest I watched was Boys over Flowersbased on a Japanese Manga, which I could say is currectly my favourite only because of Macaroni Hair (tall dude in the middle of the pic below), but I watched it in 2 days which is saying something since it’s 25-episode long.

What music do you like? [Lorraine]

I don’t really stick to one genre – it could as well be elevator music or thumpy music from cars passing by. When I was young I used to be a hardcore Christina Aguilera groupie so I hold quite a strong allegiance to her still, but nowadays my playlist is quite colourful. The base line is though, that it needs to be something I can sing along to. So preferably a female vocalist with a distinct singing voice. Other than that, I like metal, K-pop, HippityHoppity… Well the only thing I can’t stand is Techno and Trance.

  22. That bag is so cool. So is that jacket. I also like your photographer’s white shoes.

    ps. I’m pretty sure it’s red, albeit a really washed out red…although it does vibe pink.

    and no, despite an abundance of oxfords in my closet, no girl for me…pity party starts now…

  31. Haha, you’re so cute! I love the second photo and the color of your blazer is awesome!

  32. okay now I can’t look at that shirt without seeing pink. I think you’re right…but if it ever comes up again, I’m going to say I thought it looked more pink than red all along.

  33. Okay, if one of those is a dress, then daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn it’s short!! Still, you are, like, the queen of layering.

  34. now i have to go see that drama!!!!

  43. Adore these glasses, and still, your jacket :)

  44. i just started reading your blog and i have to say i love your style : ) but get this…guess who i saw today on whowhatwear? you! http://www.whowhatwear.com/website/admin/uploads/myspace-muse-june.jpg

  45. YAY that;s my question, and BOF is also one of my favourites! menn i would’ve finished it in two days too, if i didn’t had to wait for subs, and eps to air HAHA. the glasses look so cool on you ^^

  46. Katie

    i know Korean dramas take forever to move on. The story line like you said can get pretty annoying. Sometimes I will just fast forward and watch in five minutes. i liked BOF tho, even if in the beginning it was kind of bad.

  47. oh haha. BOF was wonderful. i watched that show every week as it aired, and then i would discuss with indigo what happened. while watching, i didn’t think that jun pyo’s hair was super super horrible, but looking back, it is crazy bad. XD
    but indigo and i had nicknames for every character, macaroni hair was perm boy, jihoo ended up being michael jackson (idk, indigo think he looks like him), playboys 1&2, leading lady, and best friend. great times. everyone in the drama esp. kim bum has become so popular now! :D

    and you put up a younha song! i love her, she’s got such a pretty voice. but i’m a little bit disappointed in her latest album. i really liked the someday album though. :)

    -tangerine
    and…that jacket is the most gorgeous color!

  48. Aaaah I am so in love with the Public Beware bag!! Its got such unique design!!

  49. Tip

    Interesting to know how passionate you are for history Shini. I was once that way for politics/gov’t while obtaining a B.S. in it, however, now it no longer interest me in the way it did. You seem quite multi-dimensional and I really enjoy that about you. I am currently seeking my other dimensions.

    Lovely jacket! Enjoying the boots as well.

    Please stop back by the blog if you have time and tell me what you think. I have made changes and your opinion is highly valued to me.

  50. hello from hk shini!! hahahaha my boyfriend is a huge history freak too. hk went through a phase of mega korean drama adoration but i never participated in such adoration myself. HUM maybe i should have hahahaha.
    i wanted those hm shoes too but it’s always hard to find my size :/

  57. Hi! I wrote a little article about your website. It’s Dutch, but I swear it’s full of praise. (I have this strange feeling that that’s no good English, but okay, you’ll understand. ;)) I love this outfit, like always. I’m feeling like a arselicker, but it’s true!

  58. i love that bag. also your comments section is so nicely set up.
