7 days, 7 inspirations

1) DIY bag
It's Korean Thanksgiving here
(well it's tomorrow on Monday but we are officially on holidays until Tues. so yea)
and if you have some gift wraps left-over or long scarves
you can make a quick DIY bag if you have some rings
or like the wooden ones I have
(I bought it for about $15 I think...)
just tie it around however you want it and let it loose on the bottom
so you can put at least some of your makeups & cell
sew the sides and that's about it!

made it two
(the right one is slightly longer one)

2) reading magazine on iPad
you can download "Ceci" (the one I'm featured in this month)
and "sure" magazines both Korean for free if you have ipad
just search it in app store
I love scrap-ing pages off from high resolution photos/editorials
I'm sure you're too and wants to get inspirations from many possible sources!

if you have iphone/ipad JEANRICHARD now has an app out
if you love watches as much as I do
this is one of the must-haves for you too!

4) lifeafterdenim
My younger brother is so into striped tees these days
 (inspired by many navy/sailor looks over s/s?)
and comfortable yet chic looks
so I picked some of my favorites off from where I give full credits to the images

such a cool dyed pants
blue one is my favorite but certainly men can try the pink ones these days
(but make sure to wear neutral not too bright tops for the right contrast)

i love a denim shirt like this
I would love to wear this one regardless it's for men's

this is also my personal pick that will suit women too
love the shiny gold feel in this trench
the brown one looks more toned down and polished
for all appropriates

5) banane taipei
what we call the "fake printed canvas bags" in Korea
this one I found is available to be purchased in the U.S.
takes about 10 days to get your products
and they take pre-orders for some of the models that are ready
in late September
love the fun pop of colors and the fact that it is so light
and can be carried with you anywhere everywhere!
they cost $119.99 each

lavender grey, lake blue (available for preorder),
grass green, midnight magenta,
mystique brown (for preorder),
french honey camel (for preorder),
& sweet pink

6) regalrose
I always have hard time picking just 10 picks for cool accessories like these
they are amazing
everything I love about feathers, stars, armlet, shoulder pads,
earcuffs, such cool cool details in every single piece!

feather shoulder clips, chain & feathers ear cuff,
super long black string earrings, meteorite drop earrings,
the punk collar necklace, feather ring, star ring,
starburst large double finger ring, geometric armlet
& feather armlet

photos credit to & shop available @

7) tod's cellphone holder/necklace
see this long strap (the orange+brown braided one)?
it's my cellphone necklace which I had for about a year or more?
I'm so glad that I have it on these days
because I drop my phone too often
and with this long necklace I can catch it just before my cell is about to
crash/hit the ground
it's my cell saver ;)
