Tales of Wonderlost

I'm a Korean-American adoptee living in Seoul, just finished my MA in Anthropology (yes, i took all of my classes in Korean TT). In my spare time, I volunteer at two great organizations: Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association (KUMFA) and the Women's Global Solidarity Action Network (WGSAN) - a group that works on various issues, including with the survivors of military sexual slavery during WWII ("Comfort Women"). I also love cooking and baking and going to the noraebang ^^ To make a monthly donation to the Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association, please click below!!

so i bought this dress last year. i like how it has the back cut-out that leads to the sides but have never had the guts to wear it in public (you might recall me saying that my sister has mocked me for dressing like a forty year old since we were, oh, fourteen years old. speaking of my sister this photo is in my sister’s roomㅋㅋ, my full-length mirror cracked last week and then really a slew of bad luck happenedㅠㅠ). anyways, today was so hot that i thought, what the hell! and i wore it for the first time ever 오예~ also, the necklace is one i bought from a lady who makes her own accessories and sells them on the street.

(full disclosure: i still wore a cardigan over it for most of the day - maybe next time i will get the courage to wear it by itself. one step at a time and all!)
