New Summer Obsession

The temperature in Seoul has really gone up as the Summer as gotten underway and I have spent my fair share of sweaty afternoons waiting on buses, squeezing in between shops, newsstands and pedestrians. During said hot hours a cool drink would be amazing...AND I JUST FOUND THE PERFECT ONE!

A new juice and coffee truck opened a couple of minutes away from my apartment and I cannot get enough of it. So far the Watermelon juice is my favorite, but the Kiwi and Grapefruit are close seconds. The owner a former designer who decided to travel and then open up his own little truck chops up a generous portion of fresh fruit and tosses it into a blender along with a bit of ice....the end result is pure heave on a sweltering afternoon in Seoul.

My Summer is going to be full of fruit juice!

Belts are utterly amazing! They can add a much needed pop of color to an outfit and can really accentuate your waste in a flattering and feminine way. You don’t have to go overboard with an intricate or crazy belt buckle because sometimes a sweet and simple belt is enough to make a statement. Belts are an essential accessory that can dress up an outfit or add a fun detail to a plain dress. Belts! Did I mention how much I love belts?

Here are a few snap shots of belts on some of our models at Seoul Sold and a shot of my favorite must have belts that I am currently rotating through my own wardrobe.

Seoul Sold - Vintage Fashion from South Korea

I am so very lucky to have recently moved to Seoul, South Korea and to have the opportunity to experience such a rich and vibrant culture. One aspect of city life in Seoul that I adore is the great fashion. With the street-side shops, designer boutiques, and local markets there is so much to choose from.

Fashion in Seoul is approached with a fun and unique spunk that is refreshing. Seoul is a city that prides itself in looking its best and being fashion forward. That said, there are some amazing retro and vintage finds to be had in the city and I have made it my mission to share them with the international scene. I have recently opened a shop on Etsy called Seoul Sold and I will be sharing some of the great vintage finds that I have come across during my time in South Korea.

I am excited for the opportunity to own a shop and share some of the great Asian vintage fashion that I have had the good fortune of discovering. Visit my shop at
