House WearsThe trendy shopping street of Garusogil is the epitome of Korean fashion, as evidenced by the supremely stylish 20-somethings walking the streets in sky-high heels, off the shoulder tops and red lipstick, their perfectly coiffed hair bouncing just so.
In addition to trees, the street is lined with boutiques purveying everything from cosmetics and accessories, to housewares and shoes, and among the thousands of places to hand over your credit card is a chic, whitewashed clothing boutique called Afternoon In the House. Check out the ladylike dresses with bows and ruffles, as well as a well-edited selection of handbags, all redolent with a dose of Korean style.
