Calm Before The Rain

27th January 2011





I borrowed a dress from Elizabeth Lau to attend a special (last minute) event at the MCM store as one of their guests and Rain‘s exclusive appearance, will explain this more in the later post.  Whilst shooting each others outfit shots with 3o minutes to spare on the corner of Sloane Street, you could hear screaming fans chanting ‘Bi/Rain, Saranghae! Bi/Rain, Saranghae!’* – ahhhh the feeling of immense excitment.

Thank you for the outfit shots Shini!!! Saranghae!

*Korean Hangul translations in English 😀
Bi or Pi means Rain.
Saranghae means I love you.
P.s please correct me if I’m wrong.
My outfit: Scarf tied on hair bun – courtesy of LONCHAMP, Scarf – BURBERRY, Dress – borrowed from ELIZABETH LAU (thank you Elizabeth!), Coat – courtesy of ELIZABETH LAU, Tights – FALKE, Clutch and shoes – REISS, Watch – courtesy of BURBERRY.
