Ethnic Monk-ey

Handmade beaded necklace- Gaudi ethnic pattern scraf- Gaudi  top- Gaudi grey cardi- Unbranded brown belt- Pull&Bear Tawny baggy pants- Bangkok street market turqoish sandals

Holla Hermosa!!! (Hello Beautiful!)

Just learn the language from my Mexican friend, Monica. :p
And how's your day? Hope it's doing great! :))

....Erm, actually, I kinda have writer's block today. :( So I'll just keep it short. Hippie and ethnic was my style back in high school, and the mood back on after I bought the Tawny pants few days ago. This look actually inspired by the Indian male baggy pants (they usually in white color). They're so flowy and super comfy. I leave out my heels and just go back to the flat sandals. Hope you like it!

Oh, and since I work in a nail-polish heaven :p this early week I made an ethnic nail-art. Never thought it would match perfectly with today's outfit. :)

Hi all,

To begin with,  I just wanna say my sympathy to our fellow in Japan due to the earthquake and Tsunami hits yesterday. Our prayer here from Indonesia and other caring countries always be for you. And to our Japanese blogger friends, I just hope you're ok there.

So, the reason of my post today is to admit how ignorance I was to my local fashion bloggers. Ever since I started to blog, I barely browse on the locals. I, fortunately, have many abroad blogger friends, but very few Indonesian friends. :( This is ugly, coz they're soooooo many fashion geniuses on my country! And to make up with that, here's my standing applause for them Indonesian fashion ingenuity:

Michelle Koesnadi from glistersandblisters. She knows just how to work the high-end brands! She has amazing amazing outfit photos, which she took by herself! Her shoes and accessories collection are totally to die for. She's a talented photographer too.

Diana Rikasari from hot chocolate and mint. She's the no.1 it girl in the local blogging world. She's  featured on every local magazines and sites, and became the 'someone' in Indonesian street fashion. And most importantly, she started from blogging! She has tons of very unique and one of a kind outfits, which she photographed on her colorful bedroom. Her creativity in design and fashion is surely no doubted.

Bethanny Putri Supriadi from afternoon tea and living room. She's the creative director of de.cada.dia, a brand of her own.  Her style is simply fabulous with amazing shoes collection. I love her, coz she loves coffee brown as much as I do. :)

Fhenny from Little Miss Fhenny. Another fashionista in Jakarta who's also a fashion writer. Her style is ecletic, and always know how to combine outfits from head to toe.

Diana Caitilin from call me Dyiiin!. This pretty fashionista is currently studying fashion in Malaysia. Her fashion attempts is always creative, girly, and unique at the same time. She has several fashion quotes of which I def couldn't agree more!

Evita Nuh from The creme de la crop. Ok about this girl, I envy her so much! Coz she found her signature style at a very super young age!! She's just 12 yo Indonesian girl who already became a style icon! Her featured list is suuuuuper long. She's an amzing writer and have an incredibly taste of fashion. I wonder what she'll be in next few years.

Sabila Anata from Pastel Girl. Another stylish young girl who able to put up unwearable piece of clothing into a chic looks. Her pose is undeniably cute and funny (in a good way of course). :)

Carissa Vicky from la petit poucet. Now this girl has amazing photos. And yup, she's another great self-photos-taker. Like her blog name, she has a petite body with a girly and chic style of fashion. I really enjoying her photographs on her blog so much.

Karina Pricilla from fabooshbaboosh. This fashionista has shoes collection that'll makes you shoe-gasm! Her clean photographs just captured perfectly of her every amazing pieces of clothing.

And that's just a very few of wonderful fashion bloggers here in my country. You guys should def click on their links and have a cup of inspiration from each one of them. And as for you girls, whom the name is listed on this post (if you ever read this), just don't mind me.  I'm just nobody who admire your blog and your love in fashion so much. :)

Legacy (Part.1)

How's your weekend, dolls? :))

I had a blast last weekend. Also, the best thing is, my Mom visited me and gave me a bag full with granma's and her old clothes! Super Yay!! :D So today, without any hesitation I put this dress on to my office. The dress is actually a bit too big for me on the shoulder, but you guys know that will never stop us for wearing granma's/ mom's dress, right? ;)

Ok, since I have this new collection of old clothes, I will probably continue to wear them up. So there will be part 2,3, ect sometime soon. I hope you like it!

Ps: this is good coz I can save my shopping money. I'm planning to buy a good pocket camera for outfit-photo purpose. Any idea on what should I buy?? Please tell me.. :)

Until next post, toodle-doodles!!

Too Big To Be True

Hi dolls!

It's been a busy week for sure... (pause)

But anyhow, I have this idea to share with you all. It's about how to make your own oversized collection.

Just last weekend, I've bought this basic tees from Zara. It supposed to be body-fit tees with long sleeve and tight halter neck. But, I know I'll look very friggin' thin if I wear that tees without any outer. So instead of buying Small size, I bought the Large size! Yes. And it turned out just like on the photos above.. :)) Not bad, eh?

What I've been trying to share is, you could always make your own 'oversized (top) collection' out of the available collection out there on the store. I think you guys would probably know that. But, in case you haven't, here are few things *I think* you supposed to consider in buying over size clothes (tops):
  •  The type of fabric: Don't ever buy an over size clothes with thick and stiff cotton fabric. Thick fabric makes you look like you're borrowing someone else's clothes. Thus, choose more elastic and rather thin fabric. For thick clothes, make sure it's heavy. That way it will loose on your body perfectly.
  • The shoulder line: It's better to choose clothes without pads line. That way, no one can tell you're actually wearing over size. But as most clothes has sewing lines on the pads, make sure it falls down perfectly on your lower shoulder (ie. you can see it on my previous post outfit). :)
  • The size: Pick the size twice (or more) of your actual size. If you use size S, then go for an L or even XL (if it's still looks decent on you), ect.
  • How to: To have chic looks with your over size clothes, just roll the sleeves (short or long) up until it feels tight enough (mostly around elbows). For short sleeves, just roll it a bit so that it looks tighter. Don't overdo it, or else you'll look like a thug. :p
 I hope this will inspire you, for the next shopping spree.. :D

ps: I'll catch up on visiting those who have commented tomorrow. Promise. :)

Until next post, toodle-doodles!
