Greek Ruins



I'm wearing:

1. Blue sweatshirt with polka dots, from Top Ten Korea.
2. Cream colored shirt, from Pull & Bear.
3. Collar tips with grapes, from H&M.
4. Super skinny jeans, from Dr. Denim.
5. Mortimer blue suede boots, from Frank Wright UK.
6. Rings, from H&M.
Have you ever seen a random place in the street and felt like it belonged to another era? I have! And it's pretty sensational. I've always liked architectural designs from the past, there's something about them that's mysterious and wonderful, almost like you can feel that something happened in there when you see it in the present day. That's also why I love ruins and, sharing a dream now, why I wish to visit Europe, I just really, really want to see the Greek temples and ruins.

I've seen this construction a million times and I always feel drawn to it; that's why, the minute I had the chance to do it, snapped some photos over there. I found out later that it's an office or something, like some real corporative stuff (which was weird, considering I imagine it as the house of some God or something). But yeah, the image value is all that matters here.

I bought the sweatshirt I'm wearing in Korea and I love its print. I'm not much of a print-lover but stripes, dots and plaid will always have my heart. Sorry, I'm not into crazy patterns and all that stuff, so don't expect to see flowered or hawaiian shirts over here. I decided to put some collar tips (they're grapes, how amazing is that?!) to make the whole outfit feel a bit smarter. Overall, I think it looks quite classy and cool but, of course, I'd love to hear what you think. Is it as great as I think or am I exaggerating? Ha.

// ¿Alguna vez han visto un lugar al azar en la calle y sentido como que perteneció a otra era? ¡Yo sí! Y es bastante sensacional. Siempre me han gustado los diseños arquitectónicos del pasado, hay algo en ellos que es misterioso y lindo, casi puedes sentir que algo sucedió ahí cuando los ves en la actualidad. Es por eso que amo las ruinas y, compartiendo un sueño ahora, por qué quiero visitar Europa; en serio DESEO ver los templos y ruinas de los Griegos.

He visto esta construcción miles de veces y siempre siento que me llama; por eso, tan pronto tuve la oportunidad, aproveché y tomé fotos ahí. Descubrí después que es una oficina o algo, cosas muy corporativas (eso fue raro, considerando que imaginaba sería el hogar de algún Dios o así). Pero sí, el valor estético es todo lo que importa aquí.

Compré la sudadera que estoy usando en Korea y amo su estampado. No suelo ser fan de los estampados pero las rayas, puntos y cuadros siempre tendrán un lugar especial en mi corazón. No me encantan los estampados locos, lo siento, no esperen ver camisas de flores o hawaianas por aquí. Decidí añadir unos accesorios para el cuello (son uvas, ¡¿no es maravilloso?!) para hacer todo el atuendo más elegante. En general, creo que se ve bien padre pero, por supuesto, me encantaría oír sus comentarios. ¿Es tan grandioso como pienso o me pasé de exagerado? Ja.
Love always,
Poseidon Hen.

  1. Really love the look, man. The sweatshirt's so stunning, i have a similar one but with plain black body and studded arms :P. I'm too a big lover of ancient architecture like Greek's one, and ruins are such an amazing mysterious we're still trying to figure out now. Have a great weekend, mate xx
