Fashion Trend Sweeping Seoul...

I'm a bit out of touch with things in North America but PLEASE tell me that the state of fashion over there isn't the same. Right now Korea has been infected with early 90s PLAID!?! (><) I can't escape it! It's everywhere. Look at this little shop! I like plaid in small doses but right now there is way too much ugly plaid everywhere. It's giving me flashbacks to when Jacquie studied Highland dance and kept replaying that horrifying bagpipe music in order to practice. Bagpipe music makes my ears bleed and plaid makes my eyes bleed. It's like I'm living in a horror movie where someone has vomited plaid. Who do these Koreans think they are? Lumberjacks? Gah. I am definitely not going to miss all the plaid when we leave.

Ooooh no... plaid has been in for quite some time here. I see a lot of people wearing it in huge lumberjack style jackets or girls in regular plaid cotton shirts and not just pajamas!!!

Yeah, you won't miss the plaid when you leave, as it's EVERYWHERE here. In fact, I have a pair of plaid shoes. Also a pair of plaid earrings.

This is not what I wanted to hear. Clearly I should not move back to Canada and instead go somewhere plaid-free.

Yeah it's pretty much everywhere here too. Except I'm shielded from it since everyone here pretty much all wear the same thing of jeans, hoodies, and flip flops. We don't have weather, so that also helps. lol.

Glad I just took my face book picture down of me wearing a plaid (we call it flanalette) shirt ;P
