God, I really do miss Seoul. How fast time flies! Since I'm feeling kind of sentimental about Seoul today, here are a few photos to reminisce.
As you can see, Common Ground is made with vivid blue shipping containers and this place has generated hashtag mania. People are coming to Common Ground as the building itself shows the uniqueness and this multi-concept series of boxes boasts over 50 fashion brands and over 15 food and drinks stalls, along with a culture space.
Travel outfits are all about quick and easy, but never lost the chic and cool vibes, and a pair of cool-enough-sunglasses helps a lot.

When one fashion week ends, another begins. We now moved on to Seoul! Yes, our first time to Seoul Fashion Week, and verified the fact about Seoul fashion is one of the essence of urban fashion in Asia. Most of people we met in Seoul were trendy but at the same time very chic, and often with bold and colorful slogan or accessories.
Like many international fashion weeks outside of the four show capitals, Seoul Fashion Week serves as a colorful platform for the fashion enthusiasts to come out and play, and of course a platform for the emerging power of South Korean designers. I am so sure you've seen everything during New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks, but now let's have a dekko in our favorite picks from Seoul Fashion Week.
Well, from our selections I believe you can feel the strong street and sportswear sphere with interesting clashes from on and off the catwalk.

Do try to speak French until someone switches to English. It’s always appreciated, usually considered cute, and most importantly a sign of respect for the culture.
Don’t insist on continuing in French once it becomes apparent the person clearly speaks your language way better than you speak theirs. It will seem rude.
Do respect sacred mealtime traditions. In Paris, meals are about stopping, sitting down and enjoying the ritual of eating, usually while having a conversation. So do enjoy your food while having a little bit of a chit chat.
Don’t try to sit at any café, with your laptop open during lunch hour. This is massively frowned upon as all tables (including yours) are designated for people who are actually eating between 12:30 and 2:30. If you need to keep working, at least order something to ward off waiters. Be considerate and give your seat to those who are really in a rush.
Don’t get flustered if a stranger bold-face stares at you in the street, particularly woman to woman. The longer she stares you down the better, as this is almost definitely a sign that she’s into your look. In Paris, fashion is serious and merits serious investigation. Be proud, be nice and return them a polite smile.
Do shop like a Parisian. A few posh essentials from Merci and APC will create the perfect base. Then fill in the gaps with the world’s greatest vintage offerings from Thanx God I’m a VIP, Killiwatch, and the Marais’ various Free’p’Star stores.
Do take a walk. Trust me, Paris is a walkable city and it’s often the least annoying way to get around. As you’ve probably read, walking everywhere is a key reason French women are slim. You’re already there, go explore! You can rest all you want when you’re back at home.
Do get your detox necessities at Juice IT or Good Organic Only. It’s not a mirage: Paris’ budding health-food scene now includes trendy, wifi-having spots where smoothies, cold-pressed juice and organic salads.
Don’t expect to leave satisfied from any of the above locations without forking over at least €20. This is Paris. The democratization of health food has yet to come.
Do visit the ultimate French pharmacy, CityPharma, in Saint Germain where Rue Bonaparte meets Rue du Four. Brace yourself for crowds at almost any time of day.
Black is such a perfect winter color that feels more versatile yet modern. Especially when its with a staple accessory like Vans sneakers of course!
