Fashion is a big part of many culture and Korean culture isn't an exception. Here at Dream, we want to provide members information on styles/trends and miscellaneous things as well.
Every month, a new outfit will be added. The outfit will contain information on the trend as well as pricing. Since outfits from the Korean websites themselves are pretty expensive, I'll try to provide alternatives for item.
Along with outfit, I will do reviews of sites or products that I have experienced just for you guys. There will be journal post as well on topics like how to style or cheaper shop alternatives. If you have any questions, let me know.

This section is a place just for me to write about things such as pricing, shop alternative, sizing, whatever that does not really have to do with pictures of outfits.
Recommended & Alternative Shops
If you guys have ever visited the original Korean shops/site, sometimes the pricing is a little high. If that isn't the case, then it's probably just me. Although the original sites are a bit pricy, there are alternative sites which sells some of the same styles for a little cheaper and even with free shipping at some places. So here are a few shops I recommend through my experience
If you scroll through the site, you can often see Korean models and even Korean products/styles. This shop has many incentives as well. The shop often puts some items on sale. If you check often, the item of your liking might be on sale. There is also a first order offer which you can find out on the site and free shipping is only offered for orders over $50. I've ordered from this place a couple times and it is a reliable place. The order comes with a tracking number so don't worry and the items comes in great quality. For sizing, it's pretty accurate. The shop is easy to navigate as well, plus it's in english so no translation needed, but the site is in many other languages as well.
While Oasap was a mix between Western fashion and Eastern fashion, Yesstyle is more focused on the Eastern fashion. Most of the items are more Japanese, Chinese, or Korean base that fit more towards the kfashion look. I've bought one thing from here and it came in good shape. Shipping here is free if you buy $25 dollars or more, so it's worth your money and also comes with a tracking number. Some of the items can be more on the expensive side, but there are tons that are fairly priced.
This could be call the cutest shop I've visited. Not only are the clothes cute, but the jewelry are adorable as well. The clothes here are quite expensive, but if you are willing to pay for it go ahead. There are some special outerwear though that if you are interested, then go check it out. I've only bought some jewelry on here and they are durable. Shipping is only $1 for everything and the people are quite nice. This shop is more on the kpop and kdrama portion as they have items from dramas and kpop stuff as well.
I haven't visited this site in a while, but now they include free shipping worldwide. I checked out the pricing again and it did go up by $3-$4 since there is free shipping, but all the items are still reasonable priced. The free shipping comes with a tracking number as well.

holika holika jelly bb cream reviewI'm totally new into the world of makeup. I just got interested this year, but I finally bought my first own personal foundation/bb cream recently and thought I'd do a review on it.
When I received the item, it came in that box and was in perfect condition. I ordered it on Amazon and it came quite fast. It was at a pretty low price as well. The person I ordered from was located in the US, but there are tons of other places. The one I ordered came with a sponge applicator that is pretty decent and I have tried it since I have not been able to get myself a legit brush yet. The container is super cute, but is a little heavy. It might be inconvenient for travel because of the shape. This bb cream does not come with a pump. Instead it comes with a spatula attached to the cap and you have to spoon some of the bb cream out when using it. To me it is not much of a hassle, but if you are uncomfortable you might want to opt out of this item.
Before buying this product, I did a little research on it. I have quite oily skin and this product is suppose to be compatible with it. I have worn it several times and it does quite well with oily skin. I do however do have some shine and oil still show at the end of the day, but it was not as much as I usually have. This is the case when I applied it along with some powder to set as well. Warning: this is a very light/pale bb cream. I myself and a little tan and it still makes my skin a little too white, but the powder helps. Only apply a little at a time and add more if you need it or it might be too much. If you are pretty dark, I don't recommend this product.
Although this is a bb cream, it dries kind of matt which I guess which is good for oily skin. Also this bb cream feels very light and refreshing. It smells really nice too. The product doesn't feel so heavy on your face. I think this is more of a light to medium coverage depending on how you use it.
Overall, I think it was a pretty good product. It was worth my money and I'm satisfied with it being my first ever makeup product.RATING: ★★★★★★★★★☆
