Susse Trend Spotting

Celeb style in the northern hemisphere.
Spotted around the streets of Sydney and even at my Local Coles. It appears that the
Maxi dress has arrived for the Sydney summer. Feminine and a strong seventies vibe you can float about in funky flora patterns and imagine you are a folk singer or a movie extra from
the movie Ice storm. The fab news is you don't have to worry about your legs being beautifully tanned and you can ditch those winter leggings.
The urban girls on-line store Bird motel have some great ones on sale checkout label children of the sun.
or for chain store chic try Supre they have so many funky prints to choose from.
Join our vote this week what do you prefer to wear?
Mini or maxi?

I haven't quite finished the shopping available in Seoul. Customising is big in Seoul everyone likes something a little different and the best place to see this is SSAMZIE Market. This is a gem with great little boutiques with independent designers .
There are market stalls with customised T-shirts jewellery and bags. You can have a go painting bags and pottery. There are great clothes for boys and girls. It had a feeling of London markets Portobello and Spitals Field I felt very at home and inspired.
It is the best place to sample Korean food on the top floor you can find a traditional Korean restaurant and get a hot plate of Korean food.
Another great store is CKD Living housing some of the best Designers from Spain.
