There's this kdrama called My Love from the Star that made a serious buzz especially on those k-fans obviously, and not to mention girls who are obsessing over adorable Do Min Joon! Why not, if the plot is so interesting and unusual, you'll be really hooked till the end. The story is about an alien, Min Joon who visited the earth but for some reason cannot go back to where he came from therefore, stayed for a very long time until he met the famous actress, Seong Yi who looked so much like the girl he helped and fell in love with but unfortunately died. But aside from the same face, this woman in the present is nothing like the sweet, lady-like and conservative Joseon dynasty girl , instead she is self-centered and snob or so what everyone thought . You have to watch their unlikely love story unfold. It was so kilig-overload and funny with just right amount of heart-pinching drama that will leave you wanting for more.
I was inspired to emulate her edgy look in a more wearable manner yet still worth the second look.
It's always easy to achieve the chic and sophisticated vibe with black and white but to be more playful I used different prints and texture to give it a fresher take.
The top has a very masculine appeal because of its boxy figure but the detail on the sleeves are lovely enough to flatter the shirt and be an excuse to wear it and forgive the unwomanly curve shape.
This mint bag is the only colored piece in my whole ensemble that is a sweet twist to the tough peg of my look. Surprise, surprise I haven't left the pastel-loving side of me.
Since the top is manly enough, it's best to balance it out with a trumpet skirt that is made more cohesive with the look with its houndstooth print.
I've been donning soft and girly looks for sometime so being unpredictable as girly now, edgy the next is one style mantra I'd like to imbibe.
