Secret Roof Garden

I'm wearing:

1. Embellished sweatshirt, from H&M.
2. Black super skinny jeans, from Asos.
4. Brown leather bracelet, from H&M.
5. Wooden fox necklace, from titiMadam.
6. Brown waffled leather backpack, from a Korean shop.
7. Bears metallic water bottle, from Art Box.
I don't remember if I've ever said how big of a gardens fan I am. Really, I dream about one day having an amazing garden with a Japanese cherry tree, another with yellow lemons and a huge field of hydrangeas. That would be amazing. So, every time I ran into a cool garden, I feel happy and special and full of nice stuff, he.

I was at one of Korea's fashion districts, called Myeong-Dong, and I explored the different stores in there. There's a lot of them and it's super crowded. I went on a Sunday but I strongly advice to go there on weekdays. The street food is kind of amazing (they even have a french fries covered corn dog. AMAZING). Here in Korea, department stores are kind of a huge deal and very different from the ones I've seen in America. I went to Lotte Young Department Store and it was really, really cool.

Apart from having international brands inside, like Mango, Cheap Monday or Jill Stuart, they have a lot of Korean brands, and most of them are really cool. This department store is the little baby of the Lotte Department Store and, like it's name suggests, it's aimed towards a younger audience. It has seven or eight floors and the last one is a nice roof garden. It took me like 2 hours to see the whole store but it was completely worth it. I've already been back to that place a couple of times. I love you Lotte Young, for real.

// No sé si alguna vez he dicho qué tan gran fan soy de los jardines. En serio, sueño con un día tener uno increíble con árboles de limones amarillos, un cerezo y muchas hortensias. Eso sería increíble. No es sorpresa que cada vez que encuentro un jardín padre, me pongo feliz y especial y mi corazón se llena de cosas bonitas, je.

Estuve en uno de los distritos de moda en Korea, llamado Myeong-Dong, y exploré las diferentes tiendas ahí. Hay muchísimas y un chorro de gente. Fui en domingo pero sugiero fuertemente visitar entre semana. La comida en la calle es una cosa increíble (hasta tienen banderillas cubiertas en papas a la francesa. HERMOSO). Acá en Korea, las tiendas departamentales son un asunto importante y muy diferentes a las que he visto en América. Fui a una que se llama Lotte Young y está bien, bien padre.

Además de tener marcas internacionales como Mango, Cheap Monday o Jill Stuart, tienen muchas marcas coreanas y la mayoría está bien padre. Esta tienda departamental es el pequeño bebé de la Lotte Department Store y, como su nombre sugiere, está dirigida a una audiencia más chaveta. Tiene siete u ocho pisos y el último es un bonito jardín en el techo. Me tomó más o menos dos horas revisar toda la tienda pero valió la pena. Ya volví un par de veces. Te amo Lotte Young, en serio.
Love always,
Hen.
