Summer ModCloth Lovin’…

16 Aug


All of these pictures are from the ModCloth blog from the summer of 2009. The two other fabulous people in the pictures are Richard and Turi. All photos belong to ModCloth.com.

Man, oh man. When I realised it had been 3 years since I interned for the AMAZING online clothing store ModCloth, I couldn’t believe it. 2009; it was one of the best summers of my life. Travelling from my little town in England to the big city of Pittsburgh (famous for it’s Heinz ketchup and Andy Warhol) was one thing, but getting to meet a bunch of fabulously chic people and write about clothes all day was another. ModCloth was 98% of the reason I started Fashion’s A Stranger. It made me realise a lot of things, and it made me 100% happy with my life and myself.

After I finished up my degree I moved to South Korea to teach English; that was almost two years ago. While my own fashion sense might have taken a wee dip since then (cause I like being damn comfortable in my curvy body), my ability to appreciate those who take their time to pick out their outfits everyday certainly has not. I hope one day I can return to ModCloth. And until that time I thank them for having me. And I will continue to spread the good word of ModCloth through south east asia. It’s the least I can do…

Time Goes By So Slowly.

9 Mar

Being unemployed is not all it’s cracked up to be. I am poor. And bored. And anxious. I find myself wearing really dull outfits and not a drop of make-up, like this one here. I’m obsessing about what’s to come in the books I’m reading as oppose to real life. (The Hunger Games trilogy- has anyone else given them a go?)

All of my clothes are packed away in storage until we get back from our next adventure, for which I am only taking a back-pack. I am living off less than two drawers of clothes and my creativity is wearing thin. On the flip side though- we’ll be in Korea by the end of the month, and I will be ready to make a few purchases on arrival. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll start up my Couple of the Week category again- which I adored. Any couples that decide to wear matching outfits from head-to-toe, are people that I’d really like to know. (How’s about my rhyming skills there? Oh yeahhh). If you are blissfully unaware of this Asian trend- go and check it out now please. It’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
