Photo diary from my trip to Korea a few weeks ago. Back in 2011 when I first started the blog, I posted a Korea and Thailand travel diary. I haven't been back to Korea since but I'm so glad I was able to revisit some familiar places including that beautiful tea house.

SHIRT AND JEANS

ZADY Shirt (More here) / RODEBJER Jeans / MANSUR GAVRIEL Backpack (More here and here) / GENTLE MONSTER Sunglasses

Zady makes beautiful luxury pieces while also addressing the environmental and social issues facing the fashion industry, like clothing made from materials that don’t biodegrade and contain toxic chemicals that absorb into our skin, and garment workers who are often not treated fairly or paid a living wage. 

They practice transparency, telling the story behind each piece on its site, from farming and weaving through dying and cut and sew. For this shirt I'm wearing (See my previous look here), they found the best long-staple organic cotton in Turkey and used traditional Banshu-Ori weaving in Japan to create a lightweight, textured fabric. This takes luxury fashion back to its roots – no logos, just beautiful fabrics, expert craftsmanship, and careful attention to process.


ADDITIONAL FAVORITES

IN MY BAG

BELIF Cushion Compact / SAINT LAURENT Wallet / FUJIFILM X-T10 Camera

While traveling in Korea, I stopped by the Belif store because I'm a huge fan of the True Cream Aqua Bomb. I purchased another Aqua Bomb and their new Cushion Compact, I love the hydrating formula and the effortless application. I'm currently using the Bare Minerals Hydrating Gel Cream which is still one of my favorites, but it's nice to have something with a little more coverage and SPF 50+.

 

THE BLACK EDIT

PRIMARY RAW Peel and Mask Kit / DR JART BB Illuminating Brush / AESOP Parsley Seed Toner / MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork / AESOP Body Wash / MARC JACOBS Shadow Palette / GROWN ALCHEMIST Lip Balm / KAHINA BEAUTY Argan Oil / JAPONESQUE Lash Curler / JUICE SERVED HERE Charcoal Lemonade 

A selection of my favorite black beauty products, I use most of these at home and when I'm traveling. The Primary Raw Mask saved my skin during NYFW and haven't used a regular lash curler since I started using the Japonesque Lash Curler.
