Welcome to the fourth stop on the blog tour for I Believe In A Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo. I was so excited to receive this book from Macmillan! I mean a beautiful Asian on the cover, the title, and the adorable plot hooked me right away.
Desi Lee believes anything is possible if you have a plan. That’s how she became student body president. Varsity soccer star. And it’s how she’ll get into Stanford. But—she’s never had a boyfriend. In fact, she’s a disaster in romance, a clumsy, stammering humiliation magnet whose botched attempts at flirting have become legendary with her friends. So when the hottest human specimen to have ever lived walks into her life one day, Desi decides to tackle her flirting failures with the same zest she’s applied to everything else in her life. She finds her answer in the Korean dramas her father has been obsessively watching for years—where the hapless heroine always seems to end up in the arms of her true love by episode ten. It’s a simple formula, and Desi is a quick study. Armed with her “K Drama Steps to True Love,” Desi goes after the moody, elusive artist Luca Drakos—and boat rescues, love triangles, and fake car crashes ensue. But when the fun and games turn to true feels, Desi finds out that real love is about way more than just drama.
Since Desi channels several leading ladies from her favorite Korean Dramas, I decided to feature some outfits I believe Desi would wear based on those women.
*Disclaimer* The style of these women may not be entirely accurate since I’ve only done a quick image search. So apologies if I got this totally wrong. (Except for Ji-Eun, I’ve seen Full House)
