So I’m going to visit South Korea soon and I was thinking that I need a nice large bag to carry my junk around while I’m there. I can’t just carry the same dumpy bag I use here around! Not in fashion-forward Korea! So I hit the internet googling “Korean style backpack”. I found a great site based in Korea called k-styleme.com. They have clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, beauty products, stationary and even a men’s accessory section! The prices are pretty reasonable, but the shipping is pretty steep. If you’re ordering from the U.S., it’s coming from South Korea; so I guess it’s typical for international shipping.
I told one of my Korean friends that I had ordered a Korean style backpack online and she said, “Really? What’s a Korean style backpack?” I just laughed and said, “You have one. You know, cute, small in size and in unique colors.” She said, “Oh! But I bought mine from North Face in the U.S.” I could only smile. None of my Korean friends have any idea how extensively the Korean Wave has reached past Asia into the U.S. and Europe. It isn’t just an appreciation of Psy’s Oppa’n Gangnam Style. The Korean Wave has also reached far into U.S. clothing styles. Two of my Korean friends told me in the recent past that I dress just like a Korean which made me immensely happy! Korean fashion is definitely my style inspiration right now.
Anyway I ordered this Korean style backpack. It’s so neat, simple, cute. And imma fan of all the colors!
