    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    Dalat Countryside - Elephant Riding and Tree of Love


    "Everyone has their own view of Dalat. Some people from Vietnam hates it, others think it's okay and there are other cities in Vietnam that are better, and some downright love it. I quite honestly love this city. Elephant Riding and The Tree of Love in this post!"

    Everyone has their own view of Dalat. Some people from Vietnam hates it, others think it's okay and there are other cities in Vietnam that are better, and some downright love it. I quite honestly love this city. It's truly romantic and sits in the mountains. There are plenty of fascinating places to visit and things to do. One downside is that this city doesn't have the best food. Granted, we didn't go with a local so we didn't know the best places to eat and if you want to really eat like a local, you eat the street food. I'm usually game but I did want to be careful with my foreigner tummy. 

    So to briefly sum up my stay in Dalat, here are two of my favorite second day activities. One is elephant riding in the countryside and my visit to the Valley of Love, more specifically - The Tree of Love. The elephant ride was fun mainly because it was my first time. I did regret it once I got on because my sympathy went to these gentle animals. Novelty was trumped by the humanitarian side of me. I had more fun feeding the elephant bananas, which they took with great ernest and subtle smile. The Tree of Love had the rom-com, cheesy schoolgirl inside me frolic in bubbles and a field of sunflower, gleefully. I had to participate. So this is the process - You buy the knotted two strands of fabric. You write the male's name in the red fabric and the female counterpart on the pink. Don't forget to put a wish up there, whether it's "I wish my secret admirer and I will fall in love," or "I hope my lover and I live happily every after," or even "I wish this sugar daddy would support me." Whatever floats your boat, I don't judge! The last process would be to throw the knotted fabric as high as you can so it lands on the tree or you simply tie it to the tree. I chose the latter.
