Korean Ladies' Fashion, Then and Now

In the top photo, "Shin Se-kyung poses on the set of her new TV drama at Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul on Tuesday" — Today's Photo: August 10, 2011. The bottom photo also pictures Miss Shin.

Things sure have changed since I got here. Well, I haven't been here that long, but almost that long. Either things have changed or I have. Probably a bit of both.

See what you're giving up by going home??? ;-)

Perhaps in a few weeks, you could do an "American Ladies' Fashions: Then and Now" post, but it might be depressing. I hardly ever see American girls wearing outfits as pretty as Shin Se-kyung's second one . . . but then again, I could be reading the wrong fashion magazines.

You know, if these same two pictures were to be offered up for contrast on a Traddy-man blog, it would be so the blogger could complain about the second picture. Sheesh!

This isn't a Traddy-man blog, which is how we know the sweet vein of philosophy in this post is real. =)

I'm a traddy. And I wouldn't let my daughters wear either one.

The first is prairie muffin dowdy.
The second is slutty.
Right ordered apparel is somewhere in the mean in between.

We used to call ourselves orthodox, but traditionalist is a better term.

And I don't know what NATALT means, but I do know that I am a traditionalist, if there is such a creature. And have long time well respected credentials to back it :)

Traditionalists are not wierdos like I have sometimes found on the net, although we are plenty strange enough to the mainstream.

And I do have my disagreements on how girls dress, the prairie muffins crap is just dumb. Although I can't complain of a friend who insists on wearing this turn of the century dress thing at the pool just because it is so outrageous and such a spectacle that anyone on the outside would have to think she's wearing it as fun retro fashion.

But typically, traditionalist wear rather unnoticeable bathing suites, albeit ones that cover better than typically found. And cover far better than a fashion trend where the suites turn fully translucent when wet.

NATALT is a play on NAWALT, which means "Not all women are like that." Whenever a blogger on the Manosphere says something about women, there will be a commenter (usually a woman) protesting, "Not all women are like that!"

I suppose there's some version of this everywhere on the Internet where one speaks in generalities.
