Heels v. Hills: All the girls wear heels. All of them. How do they do it?!?! Korea has steep hills! My feet hurt after wearing flats all day. I envy their fashion sense but not how bad their feet/back will be later in life.
Couples dressing alike: A lot of couples wear the same thing when they go out; same shirt or same shirt but in a different color. I also saw one guy in a yellow polo and his girlfriend in a yellow polo dress. The guys also tag-a-long when the girls go shopping on the weekend. They hold the girlâ€™s purchases and purse while she pursues the merchandise. And they wear â€ścouple ringsâ€ť when they are in a serious relationshipâ€¦ now that makes dating easier!
Forever 21: Itâ€™s HUGEâ€¦ 4 stories of cheap clothes! But not the junk you get at home.
Brand consciousness: They are serious about labels. Everything is designer and they want you to know it. Kelly and I sometimes play count the Louis Vuittons while weâ€™re out. They also have a lot of knock-offs you can buy on the street. Theyâ€™ve even duplicated Victoriaâ€™s Secret Pink line with other things and just putting â€śPINKâ€ť on the backside. That line isnâ€™t that expensive to start with!
Kellyâ€™s issues: Kelly wishes she had black hair and a hair net because putting her hair up would be a lot easier. She also misses meeting a lot of cool people and forming relationships with them. Sheâ€™s having the same problems that I am with the language barrier.
