Korean Ladies' Fashions

I saw the above ad over at The Marmot's Hole and clicked on it, not because I have any knowledge of, or interest in, fashion, but because I find myself ogling (my uncle taught me that word when he caught me doing it at age twelve in a supermarket) pretty women as much as the next guy.

Such styles have been in fashion as long as I have lived in Korea (thirteen years, a full third of my life). There's a certain healthy timelessness to fashion here, it seems (though not as much as North Korea). Also healthy is the fact that the styles avoid the extremes of frumpiness and sluttiness. They are alluring (I've always been embarrassed by the word "sexy"), although I realize that the Catholic traditionalists who dress their women as what one renowned commenter here called "prairie muffins" will find the pictures pornagraphic.

"Prairie muffins" made me laugh.
