Theme: Story of Espresso
(Invitation to Espresso Journey)
 
Just like the name suggests, this coffee class (held at Caffe Pascucci with 2016 Italian Brewers Cup Champion Eddy Righi) informed us with historical details and fun experience to truly enjoy coffee.
 
I believe there were 10 invited guests and we could bring one more company as well.
I went with my cousin, who calls us #coffeeaddicts ;)
 
 
 
Caffe Pascucci just released four new drinks for this season.
They are Romano, Orzo, Bicerin and Caffe Con Panna.
 
(You'll be familiar with Con Panna already if you can imagine flat cream on top of the Americano.
Orzo is non caffein drink meaning barley in Italian.)
 
This day we got a chance to drink Romano and Bicerin.
The one with the hazelnut and chocolate (think of nutella) is "Bicerin" and the one with lemon and orange flavor is called "Romano."
It's pretty common here in Korea to drink ginger and lemon tea during fall and winter, so my guess is that Romano will be welcomed by lots and lots.

 
As you entered the cafe, each guests received some kind of pamphlet with the menus explanation and all, and I noticed the little number on the top right.
 
At the end of the class, there was a gift lottery.
All invited guests received one eventually, but the prize was all different.
I was lucky number 7, and surprisingly I got called first.
Mine was four free drinks coupons.
Some others received espresso cups from Yido Pottery and two of them got Moka Pot.
 
Special thanks to Caffe Pascucci & Eddy Righi for this special class and gifts!

affordable fall outfit

 
 
 
 
FALL TREND
 
It still feels like summer one day and fall on the other day here in Korea.
So the best you can do with your wardrobe is to keep the summer outfits and layer them with your other shirts and dresses.
 
I love mixing up with patterns, fabrics and the lengths.
Same colored outfits or the safe way to dress up in black and white is too cliche.
This is why I love investing in more shirts and blouses these days.
 
Here are the trends I love seeing:
 
1) tuck-in shirt
You'll see on the F/W runways, there are lots of designers who made the half of the shirts tucked in and the other half stuck outside for the contrary, almost like unfinished look.
It'll look chic with almost any type of denim pants, trousers or midi skirts.
I  am personally digging for fringe detailed skirts to match with my tops.
 
2) off-the-shoulder
Off-the-shoulder tops are still hot for F/W. Just look for the right feel of that clean, crisp fabric.
 
3) Skirt on Skirt/Dress
I want to experiment with wearing skirt on top of the other skirt.
Ex: wear denim skirt on top of the knit maxidress,
or wear flare skirt on top of the fitted bodycon skirt etc.
 
These are some trends I found on the catwalks and on streetstyle that I think everyone can pull it off easily.
I always look for affordable pieces, and recently I found Yoins which has so many options to choose from.
 
 
 
 
For this coming Korean Thanksgiving Day, I'm trying to dress up myself in this casual shirt and jeans
I want to style it with this statement necklace as well, so I can look both chic yet comfy.
What do you think of this look I found on Yoins.com?
How are you going to get dressed up for this holiday, or for a weekend getaway?
Feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments below :)
 
Happy Chuseok everyone!

free drinks of champagnes and cocktails, people were happily drunk and danced the night away at the stage (with the "HERMES SALOON" sign on above)

I found another way to put my sunnies in my outfit: use belt as a holder haha
