Saw this woman in a fabulous furry vest at Value Village today (Veteran's Day sale!).  She was a mom (with a baby in her cart) and yet still so put together, fun, and bold with her style.

At the Prosser Hot Air Balloon Rally.


I've been looking for a cream maxi cardigan like this for so long!  Love all her fall colors. 

I believe these ladies brought their kids, which explains the cute monkey backpack.

I gasped in excitement and ran across the store when I saw this at Goodwill...

Then, I realized it was $50.  And it was too big.  AND it wasn't the dress form for draping (where you can stick pins in and such), but simply for display.  Sadness.

I hate paying for shipping.  It's a perfectly reasonable fee to ask for, but it just always seems to come as a shock when I compare with the original price and what the final charge is.  Furthermore, free shipping almost always has a minimum purchase value that's difficult to meet (then you're forced to buy things just 'cause, to meet the limit).

Lately, I've been finding a way to get free shipping even when only buying one item - go to the store in person and ask the sales associate to place an order for you.  Shipping will be free, and it'll get delivered right to your house!  It's a great option especially if say they don't have the size/color you need, if they run out of the item itself in-store, etc.  I've tried this with both American Eagle and LOFT and so I'm assuming that any major mall stores would be willing to do this for you.

(Of course, this only works if you can access the store in person.  This may or may not be applicable for online exclusive items or online-only sales.)

Adding to my (tiny) international magazine collection: Marvle Magazine!  

Marvle Magazine - Kyobo Book Centre
Snapback and cartoon socks - various small shops

Some cool features included reports on local designers, backstage fashion shows, and interviews with professionals in the industry.  Wish I could read Korean haha... but the pictures were amazing enough on their own!  

And of course what really sold me - the streetstyle shots!  I've seen these all over Tumblr so was excited to have the real deal in hard copy (which is printed on lovely heavy weight paper to boot).  Didn't even realize that this magazine/photographer was where they came from.

Can't believe we were standing in the exact same spots in Dongdaemun Plaza only a month ago!

Beautiful hanboks.  I think the color combinations are so unexpected but work so well together despite the strong colorblocking.

More modern takes.

A Buddhist (?) monk.  The ones in Korea seemed to always wear grey.

Not sure how I feel about people taking the 90's trend all the way, but these girls kind of pull it off convincingly.

We saw a lot of outfit matching in Korea, and some were done quite well, matching each other's vibe rather than exact pieces/ensembles.

An awesome modern instrumental ensemble for opening act (didn't catch the group's name), plus South Carnival - a local Jeju ska band that everyone adored.
