After SNSD (and Sones) had a blast at KCON 2014, the girls returned to Korea after staying a few days at Los Angeles. Maybe because of jetlag and the long haul flight, the girl all put on shades and seemed a bit tiring, but still it didn’t it kept them from dressing their best at the airport.

This week’s winner is Seolady who won voters hearts with her simple American casual ensemble at the Incheon Airport. Adorning a denim-like (actually cotton) simple blue polka dot dress, Seohyun showed off her shoulders at this occasion. She also had her Vivienne Westwood backpack hanged on one shoulder that contrasts with her blue dress. The last touch ups of this outfit is a pair of cool wedge sneakers which put their perfect USA holiday to an end.

Sorry for the delay everyone! KCON was a blast, and took a lot out of me, and if any of you went, I hope you had a blast! I’m sure Jessica would have loved to know she had won for the week, but maybe another time I’ll get to say that!

The newly minted CEO of Blanc strutted out of Incheon in a fabulous summer get-up. She started with a light blue Oxford top, which thankfully was  not sheer enough to be see-through. Unlike previous variations, she opted to tuck in her shirt, rather than opting for the “oversized” look that’s usually sported by ladies these days. A lightly distressed pair of cropped jeans sat upon her waist, and she further cropped them by rolling up the ends to show the selvage. Though she’s not quite 220cm, her tall Alexander Wang pumps certainly gave her some help getting close to it.  She clutched a Vivienne Westwood pouch, and, surprise surprise, a pair of her own Blanc sunglasses.

Congrats to Jessica for winning outfit of the week, and thank you all for voting!

Due to some technical reason, our website was down for the past few days thus there wasn’t an OTW poll. We Soshi Stylists decide to still publish our ‘Stylist’s Choice’ article and TTS’ floral ensemble gained our attention.

It it already the beginning of August and there is only one month of summer left, but Taetiseo’s outfit shined under the sunand brought SNSD’s summer fashion to its climax at the Blue Dream Festival performance. Each of the girls adorned a flower (or flowers in Seohyun’s case) on their hair and wore cheerful, floral printed clothing with vibrant colors.

Taeny’s outfit were from Coiincos. Tiffany’s bra top and skirt were composed of a pink-blue floral print fabric sewn with a mesh fabric, the overall feeling was very fairy-like  and the mesh fabric enabled Tiffany to expose her legs and shoulders in a modest way. Taeyeon was the boldest one out of the three, showing her ant waist while wearing a two piece dress with a charming and eye shocking yellow fabric with tropical flower prints.

Seohyun on the other hand had the best outfit but she played it well in a conservative way.  Her palm-print dress in green had some playful suspender straps instead of the normal fabric we use. The dress originally had its sides cut out which would make one’s upper waist show, so she wore a pastel green mesh fabric, similar to Tiffany’s, underneath. Surprisingly, the combination worked the chemistry and the exotic and summer feeling still remained. Her sunflower tiara which crowned her hair was also the highlight of her outfit. Don’t you think it summoned her divinity and made her hair look gorgeous throughout the performance?

We apologize for the site’s absence for the past few days, but please remember to vote for OTW this Friday! We thank you all supporters in advance!

This week, the final vote ending up being between Sooyoung and…Sooyoung! While she had 2 very nice outfits, you the readers decided it was her airport style at Gimpo was the better of the 2, and we’re here to talk about what made it so good!

Sooyoung started with a loose denim top, an unusual but fashionable choice these days, especially coming into the warmer months, and she made the smart move of not pairing denim with denim. Instead, she paired it with a high waisted black-and-pink geometric  skirt, whose calf-length terminus allowed her legs to be on full display, much to the delight of her fans. Her shoes were a bit of an oddity: wedge’s with a chunky sandal design, in neon silver, and even matching silver socks to go alongside it. Her accessories consisted of her Kenzo leather bag and her Ray Ban’s.

Congrats to Sooyoung for winning, and as always, thank you all for voting!

Review: Céline Trapeze Bag

Review on Céline’s Trapeze Bag as seen with Sooyoung.

Many of Céline’s bags have long been overshadowed by the infamous ‘Luggage‘ tote. For those who want a ‘rarer’ and more exclusive bag yet still very practical, read on as Céline’s Trapeze might just be the bag for you.

The bag comes in either full leather or half canvas, half leather, or pony hair. Most usually opt for the bag to be in a mixture of both leathers, myself included, simply because it makes it somewhat lighter. The middle part of the bag where the flap is,  is usually in leather and the winged sides, which arguably Céline made famous, is in canvas. The bag also comes in a huge range of colour combinations. You can get in a solid one colour or you can have it bi-coloured or tri-coloured. My Trapeze is tri-coloured in burgundy, maroon, and in a light brownish grey. The bag comes in either silver hardware like Sooyoung’s, or gold hardware.

Made in Italy, the bag is very spacious, one of the most spacious bags I own. There is a long zip which stretches on until one of the winged sides when you open the bag. A flap in the inside of the bag which has two pockets, a narrow, vertical pocket and right next to it, a wider horizontal pocket sits nicely. At the bag of the back sits a zipped compartment. One of the best features featured in this particular bag is the removable shoulder strap. This allows the bag to be either a tote bag or a shoulder bag, courtesy of the removable strap!

Personally, I like to use this bag in areas where pick pocketing is very common. This is one of the ‘safest’ bags I own simply because it takes quite a bit of effort to open the bag. First, you have to flip the clasp down, twist the buckle horizontally to the correct side, and the bag finally opens! This feature of the bag has both its pros and cons as some might find it quite a bit of hassle. In my opinion, the bag is considerably light as compared to my Hermès bags. However, wearing the bag on the crook of my arm does ache after a while and also gives me red marks.

To be honest, I don’t quite remember how much I bought the bag for but a little bit of researching tells me I would have bought it for around $2600 in Fall 2013. As usual, Céline has marked up their prices now and as of May 2014, the Trapeze bag starts at $2950. The bag is quite expensive however I do prefer the Trapeze as compared to other similar priced bags like Saint Laurent’s Sac Du Jour Tote.

Rating: 4.5/5

Unfortunately, Céline does not sell it’s products online yet. Head on over to the official website to see the colours they offer for the Trapeze this season.
