Window Shopping

On August 12th, it's the Queen's birthday. Work is canceled. I have the whole day.

So I read a Korean fashion magazine from December 2004.

The models in all their layers make me miss winter. I long for mittens, tights, leg warmers.

To cure my homesickness, I go shopping.

I try to recreate the outfit in the window:

The salesgirl is disappointed when I don't buy anything, but she still lets me take her picture. A random man joins in:

Outside, a Hello Kitty bicycle:

Enough, consumer culture! I will read a book instead.

Love love love the recreated outfit. More self-portraits from inside the dressing room, please.
