March 2013 Gmarket Purchase Part 1

I have been quite busy and tired lately and have not had the time to update.  I had made a Gmarket purchase back in March 2013 but didn't have the time to take photos.  I will post Part 1 of the Gmarket purchase now and post Part 2 later on.  Part 1 is clothing and shoes and Part 2 will be accessories.

I bought a pair of heels from Gmarket.  I believe they are 13cm in height, extremely high!  They aren't uncomfortable but they aren't comfortable either.   I don't know when I would possibly wear these as they are ridiculously high and make me feel like I could tumble over at any moment!  I guess it is safe to say that it doesn't feel all balanced/sturdy.  They are very cute looking with the sparkles and the "signature" on the sole.  It costs about $32.00CAD.

I bought the green jacket last time and wanted to pick up another colour, perhaps with a slight variation of style so I chose this blue jacket with removable insert/hood/siding.  It is great quality and I love this jacket.  This is the spring collection and it doesn't have the cotton quilting but it is fine to wear out in Vancouver's raining spring weather, I am not cold.  Another difference between my green jacket and this one is that this jacket has buttons and a zipper, otherwise they are fairly similar.  It was about $32.00CAD.

I saw this jacket and thought it was cute, howvere I bought it in a size medium and it is a tad big?  It was $24.00CAD.  Very good quality material I may say.  I am not sure what to wear it with so it remains in my closet for now.

Cute sweater and long shirt/dress combo, a black long tee and a dress shirt with cotton material backing.  They were all around $11.00CAD each.  They are made with quality material.

Happy shopping!  Part 2 of accessories coming soon!

Pork Belly Beer House Downtown Vancouver

Drawings/writing on the walls at the Pork Belly Beer House
After some recommendations I went to visit the Pork Belly Beer House in Vancouver Downtown.  It was delicious and it was inexpensive.  It was a place to eat samgyupsal in lettuce wraps.  SO much meat and it was all I can eat!  I enjoyed it and I will definitely come back.  It is a self serve place.  You grab your own food, water, pop, side dishes, soups, chopsticks and everything.  The only thing you can grill is samgyupsal-pork belly.  There is cooked bulgogi-pork and beef and fried chicken.  If you pay by cash, there is a discount.  Also if you finish within certain time frames, it would be cheaper.  My boyfriend and I finished eating in 40 minutes and it was $14.50CAD instead of $16.50CAD.  We paid by credit card.

February 2013 Gmarket order

My February 2013 Gmarket order came!  I bought a faux leather jacket, floral skirt, long black blazer, denim shorts, 2 Korean student books and some Holika Holika foot masks. 
The faux leather jacket is soft.  Doesn't feel all that fake and I like the cute pink poka dot lining inside the jacket.  I think I would buy another faux leather jacket from Gmarket.  I still want to find another black one with a different collar.  I am looking for one that is similar to a blazer and not quite biker jacket type like below.  It is pretty cute looking though.  This jacket costs about $47.00CAD.

Next item is the floral skirt.  I kept seeing it advertised in the blazers that I was looking at.  I really like the brand realCOCO because the quality of their blazers are pretty awesome.  The blazer I purchased in this order was also from realCOCO.  Back to the skirt, this skirt is so adorable!  The print and the colour is perfect for spring.  The only thing that is bad about it is the sizing.  It does have half an elastic waistband but because it is one size fits all, it runs a bit small.  I would say this skirt is between a x-small to small in American sizing.  In numbers I would say it is a size 02-04.  I normally wear a 04 to 06 but preferably 06 as it is more comfortable.  It has an inner lining layer which means its not sheer.  It is a lovely skirt.
This skirt was about $18.00CAD.

 The blazer is from realCOCO and I love the quality.  I just wanted to own a long black blazer.  I recommend this brand for their coats and blazers.  I bought a size 66 as I can wear layers underneath.  This blazer was about $28.00CAD.

Lastly for the clothing purchase is the denim shorts in an acid wash colour.  I bought a size medium and they were about $8.00CAD.  They are pretty decent quality shorts. They fit perfectly, I think next time I would like to buy a size large instead as I like my clothes a little more loose but this does fit perfectly.

Happy shopping!
