Polka Dance in Floral Velvet and Gloomy Days


Today's a bit gloomy for me. I'd say my guts a bit gray inside. :( Well you see, it's really hard to watch others get what you've been wanted so easily. Even so I realized to get myself even harder to believe that doing the best will only bring me to the best thing in the end.

Not gonna say much on today's post due to the severe writer's block lately, and the grey heart particularly. :p

Maize sheer polkadots top - thrifted floral velvet dress - Tamochi polkadots tights - The Little Things She Needs bright yellow shoes - The Little Things She Needs pastel necklace - Forever21 basic grey socks - Forever21 black flower headpiece - Doc Rings rings - Gaudi grey belt

But, you guys and this blog really keep me going on. Hope tomorrow will be better, I believe so. :)

Until next post, toodles-doodles!

Blooming Waist in Neon World

Thrifted denim shirt - thrifted diy denim short - thrifted androgyny shoes - Forever 21 Neon Cropped top - Forever 21 basic socks - Daisy Garland - BL!NG Drapery Neon necklace


Feelin' a bit funky by the hot weather. Sleeveless and shorts are the perfect pair for it, I think.

So, I finally managed my time to go to a thrift market again after so many time cancelling the thrift adventure. Cut to the chase, I wore my most faved new thrift pieces on this post. :) The high waist short, as you know, was a trousers. Did a bit DIY for it. The shoes, I think it was a man shoes because the toes part kinda wider.  Yet maybe it's a women shoes after all because the size is so small, since my feet size is 5-1/2 and they fits perfectly both before and after I wear socks. It's so crazy comfortable, except for the squeaky sounds it makes when I walk on ceramics floor. :p

And recently I got a new sponsor, BL!NG. It's a fashion accessory store with thousand of colors and types, with also a very affordable prices! For this outfit post, I choose to pair up a dropping neon necklace with my neon cropped top. It kinda added the funky feeling to the neon palette I wore that day. The best thing about statement necklaces is, you can have one whole different outfit (look) on them. It's actually a piece of clothing. I really love the abstract neon drapery on my chest, contrasting with my big pink heart neon cropped top. ;) You guys def should check out their site and stores, fyi, they're gonna open a new store at Plaza Indonesia this week!! And I heard an interesting promo is coming up with the new store opening! ;)

Drapery Neon necklace comes in two neon hues: lightning yellow and shocking pink

My friend told me just now (coz she just saw me about to post this outfit on my lunch time), that this outfit is so grungy, yet she told me futher (and I quite agree) that I still keep on the girly-ness with the garland as a belt around my waist. ;D Well, at first I just wanted to wear this daisies garland before the spring ends, yet my outfits recently just didn't go well with it. So I wear them as belt instead.

Last few week, I model and contribute the DIY Infinity Shawl tutorials with BL!NG and the rest of their team. Definitely a fun video and photo shoot! Then last week I saw my pictures on a table in one of BL!NG store. I thank you guys for the opportunity to contribute and to share my inspiration! :) Also you guys who continuously reading this blog, means world to me! *hugggg*

So until next post, toodles-doodles!

Fairytale of Picnic Land

Handmade Floral garland by Woodland Faerie - Forever21 Soft pink hanging beads necklace - Forever21 Lace and tulle top - Unbranded Camel ribbon belt - Dorothy Perkins Light pink laces clutch - Forever 21 Giant purple rose - Yuan Ombre light purple maxi dress - OPI nail lacquer 'Do you lilac it?' and 'Gargantuan green grape'

Ola beautiful people!!

I got a haircut last weekend, whereafter I had a nice family time back in my hometown. It's been a while since my last visit to my parents house, and I kinda missed my dogs and places I usually took my self outfit photos. So there I was, having a little picnic and a sisters bonding time in one fine afternoon. I just made the garlands for my new upcoming collection in Woodland Faerie around noon and decided to wear one. Ps: you can now order this baby by sending me an email. :)

Speaking about my hair. What do you think, guys? I have this huge crush over Zooey Deschanel on New Girl series, and that includes her outfit and her hair. So I decided to have a full blunt bangs, which I think kinda creates a retro looks on me, while next week I'm planning to re-curl my hair up. I case ya'll doesn't know, my natural hair is pretty thick and straight. I've been permanently curling my hair every year since high school.

Then back again to the picnic land that afternoon with my sister. We were self-amusing our self by watching an old (we're guessing) and super long earthworm crossing the road from one side to the other. Too bad we forgot to snap a picture of the earthworm with our camera. :( But, I did took some shots of my sister and her outfit in our little picnic land. Oh, and I just love her glasses. in fact, I bought it from Bershka just before I went to my parents house, but since I was in hurry I didn't try it on properly. My face is just too big for them! Argh! What a shame. So, I gave it to her instead. :)

To close this week's post, I'd love to share you couple of inspiration. So I've made this illustration  for Mei's blog of Girl with Plastic Camera out of her photo, whereas I had the opportunity to took part in her blog project. So happy that she love my hand-drawn illustration. Yay!

The second inspiration came from this MEGA AH-MAZING band called Walk Off The Earth (WOTE and the Beard Guy)! I love the originality of their ideas and how they interpret their creativity in a simplest way that people usually never think of. Go watch and subs right away fellas!

At the very very last, I would want to say something to all the underdogs wherever you are (and that including myself). Upon my days I witnesses that there are more and more people who are and who will underestimating you. Trying to run to other people, even the parents, is just as worthless and disappointing as saying 'I can' to those people who underestimating you. Yet you know what? Run to God is another way around. I had a pretty rough days to start the week, and people, whoever they are, are just big disappointment. So if I can say a bit advise as your friend, when things get bad, try to shut your mouth, share is to no one, and pray inside your heart. I bet no matter how short your prayer is, He listens. Then before you know it, things will get better eventually. :) After praying, thing I loves to do after is blogging. And here I am, smiling and cheered up to receive your meaningful support to this blog. I'm also happy to tell you that I've been featured as Stylist of the Week by StyleSays. If you're a self-claimed stylist, like me, you will love this fashion site. Plus it's a great great way to promote ourself! So click the link without a doubt guys! ;)
