"MODERN DAY HEROINES"
- Excuse me Mr. Lim from 3.1 Phillip Lim for stealing your comic book's title - "Kill the Night". Not only the title, but the outfits inspirations are from him too, only more playful. 
This is my second thematic photoshoot with, again, the talented Sharon Angelia. Made out those buildings from cardboard and printed out big paper, cut and glued it by myself. It was tiring, but it was worth it. So tell me, do you love it? :D

Animalier Chandelier

[Style Diary]

    It's already the end of November and I'm just posting 3 posts. I'm a bad blogger and I should feel bad. My photoshoot x vacation keep continuing, I went to another city every week to take an outfit post. It was tiring indeed, but fun too.
    It was cooler there, so heyyy, I can keep up with you, my readers with 4 seasons city. No more summer outfit! It's a sweater this time finally. Combined my fake calf hair leopard heels with my Givenchy antigona crocodile to make this outfit looks warmer. Completed the whole look with a chandelier necklace from my best friend.

And by the way, my interview with Le Belle's Block came out today!! Make sure you check out HERE!

Secret Zoo

I realized that my city has become soooo sensitive with photography thingy. For example, I have to pay several amount of money just to take a picture in a cafe, or have to mind several letters of permission, this and that. I'm tired of every "I'm sorry but you're not allowed to take picture in our cafe, you have to pay blah-blah-blah amount of money". Duh. 
This time, I got a completion, perhaps not in my city? And my brain is saying to myself "Yeah sure, take some hours to go to another city, why not? The view is better too." So here I am, taking pictures in a zoo called 'Secret Zoo' , far away from my city. They decorated the zoo like an amusement park, complete with cute cafes, everything looked soooo good in here, even the animals look happy too.

Forestry Scientist

[Style Diary] 

IMG_2722
"Forestry Scientist ? What the heck is that? Is it even a job?" - that's probably what first came up in your mind when you read the title. And the answer is yes. It is researching forest growth, wood processing, conservation, etc.
I'm not really planned to titled this outfit as 'Forestry Scientist', but when I reviewed on my laptop, I think this title is suitable, don't you think? No? Oh well, let's just skip this topic. Took this photo with my best friend few meters from my house, I even sometimes paid or go to a very far place to take a good photoshoots before I knew that there was a lovely tiny garden near my house.

I'm feeling like really wanted to stab my wifi transmitter. No, not really, just joking. But my wi-fi can't work since days ago, that's why I can't update anything though I have a lot to post. I even post this during the class.
So guys, this time I was invited to Amica Fashion Festival - (X)SML fashion show. FYI, (X)SML is one of my favorite local brand. For the F/W 2012, they use neutral and pale colors. But to make it less boring, the designs have awesome cuts.

Oh, the guy at my back is Christian Belvin, he had his birthday last week. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE FASHIONISTO! Everyone go to his blog here and say Happy Birthday to him!

Thank God for the fewer subject in school this term, so I can keep up with this blog. 2 of my best friends are coming back from Singapore this holiday. Since I'm oftenly go out when the sun is set, I think taking brunch will be a good idea for us (I should've been contacting with sun more often).
Wearing a dress from my sponsor : Mont Affair , the maroon colour is just perfect for this outfit I themed 'Berry Hues'. I didn't wear much accessories, the weather in my city is SUPER HOT right now, I have to always wearing something thin and simple to avoid sweaty look. ew.  And this dress is just filling my need.

Pierre Balmain never fail making its own texture and mixing it good. If last season they used baroque, this season is the time for diamond print. Colours? Good. Texture? Awesome. Design? THE BEST!

IMG_4728
No, guys. Nope, I'm not at London. I took this photos at the new 'it' cafe in my city : Stilrod it is. It's decorated just like London, completed with its distinctive red payphone. And they're giving us, bloggers, free pass for photoshoots! So nice.
Me, Christian Belvin, and Maria Widjaja from Bourbon Ribbon took this advantages to taking several outfit photos. Wearing leather jacket and docmart, I think this outfit suits the place : rainy London.

School Girl

IMG_4756
It's been more than a month. I really miss this blog, but I can't keep up with this stacks of assignments from my uni. Being in fashion major is basically fun.. without the assignments!
My uni is located in an office building, that means I can't wear something so experimental (believe me, I've tried before and everyone's looking at me like I'm crazy). I took this photo on Sunday, wearing my dream school girl outfit. I really wish I could wear this to school - it's Raffles if you're wondering.

Outer Space Pre-Fall

flare3
As you know, I'm so crazy about thematic fashion photo-shoots. This one is from Flare September Issue, they have the best Pre-Fall looks from all magazine's editorial so far this month. How can you think of Outer Space for Fall season? If someone mentioned fall, I'd just thinking of tweed, tartan, earth colours. But this, so extraordinary, they were thinking of Galaxy. I DIE!

Like you already know, or not, I was participating a garage sale on Friday and Saturday with other Surabaya fashion bloggers. The event were fun, I never sold anything directly to people before, and it was giving me experience.

I love you guys!

I was having another studio photoshoot and the photographer said that I can bring 2 outfits. Well I'm screwed up since I have nothing to wear. I was only planned to bring 1 outfit. I dredged up my wardrobe and found this cute little red dress that I bought years ago. And it was still magically fit to my body.
I don't wanna look too much by wearing so much accessories like I always did. So then I just combined this with a pair of a cap toe heels.

United Colours

[Style Diary]


IMG_2289



You know I'll never get bored with colours. I started being in love with colours since I realized that my wardrobe is full of black and white. Then I thought that I shouldn't buy black or white outfit so often again. It's almost a year.. And now here I am combining a lot of colours.
And if you look closer, you'll find I'm also combining a lot of textures. Pearl necklace, Knit, Snakeskin..
I don't know what life's gonna bring me, but I hope this new life with new university is as colourful and fun as this outfit.

Tropical City

IMG_4366
Before reading this post, I beg you to scroll down to the previous post. I wear this outfit for that event held 2 days ago. The dresscode is written 'Tropical', so I put much forest-related prints on this outfit. I was actually wanted to wear a printed pants, but then remembered that I have to wear a Havaianas flip-flop to the event. So I thought short denim will work.
I could still be able to doubled my tops and not looking too casual because of this organza top from Mont Affair Singapore (thank God!). The Louis Vuitton inspired collar is catching attention. Also the embroidered flower prints on its transparent material. Just perfect for everyday wear in a Tropical City like mine.

Summer Festivals: Fashion Survival Guide


coonverse

The sun is shining, the parks are full, floral dresses are back and cheeky denim shorts are out in force.

It’s a familiar feeling that can only mean one thing – spring has sprung, summer is on its way and with it comes a fantastic line-up of festival frivolities.

For many hard-core music fans, festivals are a great time to catch up on the latest trends, from chart-toppers to punk, hip-hop and death metal.

For the rest of us, festivals are as much about a laid-back lifestyle combining great friends, drinks and sunshine, as they are about the tunes. An integral part of any festival is the unique fashion trends on show each year.

The Summer Festival Survival Guide gives you the low-down on this season’s fashion and camping must-haves, whether you’re a seasoned Glastonbury-goer or getting ready to cut your festival-going teeth.

Footwear

For all the talk about summer sun, the reality is always that some festival, somewhere, will get rained-out.

Festival shoes need to be sturdy enough to stand up to plenty of walking, dancing and mud. A comfortable footwear choice that will suit any festival outfit is a pair of Converse trainers or wellies.

Championed by rock-stars like The Ramones and The Strokes, Converse shoes are the perfect footwear for any festival line-up.

Chic Summer-esque

[Style Diary] 

IMG_3810


Guess I'm sucks at choosing title. 
Okay. Put it aside. I'll talk about it later.
Actually last week I supposed to take a photoshoot with this outfit in a studio, my friend asked me to do some boy-n-girl photoshoot with him. But it was ruined. If you're reading this, I've got to say that I'm not a model, I can't do crazy pose. I'm really not going to say yes to not-my-friend-photographer to be photographed by him. No guys, I'm not mad. 
So then I took another photoshoot with a friend the next day..

Casual Pop

[Style Diary]
IMG_4071
It was just a daily weekday, nothing special on this day, except the bad summer weather that keep being worse each day. I'd like to wear something that wouldn't make me sweat, easy to wear, but also stylish. So my choose went to this thin fabric top. Combined with a long leather-cotton legging to avoid too simple look. And of course, my Pink Pop wedges!

Jewelled Royal Blue

bluette

I found my self strucked with Jewelled stuffs recently. Found that bag (on the background) on Zara last week, and I'm literally about to jump! (the rack is too high for me). My friend then convinced me that the bag is so nice and expensive looky. So I didn't took second thought on buying this bag.
The necklace? Bought it from H&M last holiday.
The shoes? A gift from my boyfriend.

I love the color as well. Royal Blue. Reminds me of the 'ear' 's color of Celine Trapeze 3 tone. Blue and Suede, wouldn't be able to say No.

It is almost dark when I took this photo. Yes, the sunset in my city is at 6PM or even less! How stressful is that? I am completely lost hope when I know it's almost 5 PM that time. But my friend told me that I could use her rooftop to took my outfit photos. And it turned out fabulous. Just found out that photographers call it 'Golden Time' (a time after sunrise and before sunset) to make it a beautiful golden photos.

Here's the outfit I decided to wear during the Golden Time: All Stud

Like I said in 'About' page of this blog, my country is tropical. No winter, no falls.. But this layering idea came across my mind. Instead of taking outdoor photographs, I rented a new photo studio in my city for 1 hour. I turned on the Air Conditioner and pose with this layered outfit without sweating.

Spare Time

IMG_4042

I'm so angry with myself because I can't be a dedicated blogger since whenever! Trust me. Almost everyday I opened Fashion Gone Rogue, Who What Wear, IFB, and any other fashion web. Whenever I looked at unique editorial, or interesting blogger tips, I really wanted to do something on my blog. But voila, nothing happened! Then I think to myself, I must do something. I really want to be a fashion intern. At this term, being a stylist is my first choice. A step to a bigger job, I think. You'll see what I'm gonna be doing next month.
So, in order to being a trustworthy stylist, I have to be a dedicated blogger first.

This time I show you what I do during my spare time. That. Take a look at picture above : net chips, an inspirational book, an eye cream, and, a dog to play with. Yes, those are my dog's legs.
Pray to me ladies, so I could be 1 of dedicated blogger. Please.

When everyone is busy playing with pastels (I know everyone is lovestruck-ed with Pastels and so do I!), I feeling like want to add a refreshment on your Reading List. Okay, to be honest, I haven't shopping anything Pastel Coloured - yet.

This is actually one of my favourite top. The asymmetrical cut is bringing this top to higher level, wearing this is making me feel sooo unique. It has sheer, pocket, everything that I love! And if you take a look at it closer, you'll find another sheer on the side of my stomach.

Oh, I MISS MY BLOG ! My laptop has been so mean to me, it's now completely broken. So that's why I've been not blogging for almost a month. But I was still taken a lot of outfit photos, I'll post it one by one. Start with this : Minty colours assymetrical skirt.

This photo was taken at the same day as I took photos for this blog layout. Wearing monotone coloured outfit and matched it with double coloured mini bag + electric colour heels. I always wanted to wear this kind of experiment for a long time! 

Magnum National Promo: Shopping Trip!

Seriously. I need more shopping. From the time I get my very first branded stuff, I just couldn't get enough. I used to think that I only need a few of their (branded designer) stuffs, but I ended up buying more and more. 

My favourite brand that keeps me buying for more are YSL (they got a plenty of amazing accessories) and Prada, you could always count on Prada. And absolutely DSquared2, but I never bought one, let's hope for it. 

I really, really wish I could go shopping to Paris. or Milan. or New York. or LA. or  Maldives (yes! remember that place that also have a very beautiful beach?) I never been to one of that place I mentioned. But I'm 100% sure I'll become a shopping beast there. Especially Milan. Not only one of the biggest fashion city, but they have so many beautiful old buildings and places. First store I’m gonna visit if I could go there is Alexander McQueen, their unique and fierce designs are so ‘me’. Will worth every penny.

I REALLY need to go there, I really wanna shop. I know I can't get my dreams too high. I couldn't go anywhere far this year since I've been spent a lot of money for school and fashion needs.

But today, I bought Magnum (my favourite ice cream since I were kid) , and found a really nice National Promo from them. It’s the Magnum Promo to Win Unforgettable Experience my friends have told me.  They offer us a Luxury Shopping Holiday if we were lucky. The shop-keeper told me that I could win a holiday packages valued at $5,000 in Milan, Paris, LA, New York, and Maldives along with the transportation and accomodation for 4 days 3 nights while you're staying at the holiday destination (valid for 2 people). There are also greater opportunities that allow people to win rewards. Oh, and you could win Rp 20,000,000 shopping package in Jakarta for 100 winners! How cool is that??

And I immediately opened their website when I got home and found the video virals about the holiday prizes destination. I. Cant. Breathe. I’m drooling for it! They made a verrryy great video about the winner’s destinations. The fashion cities are beyond my imagination. Photographers everywhere, stylish people everywhere, and top branded stores are everywhere! Not only that, the places are also beautiful. No traffic jam at all, not too crowded, because people there are so well-managed. Shopping in a beautiful place is our dream, right?
Watch it yourself, you’ll be lying if you say you’re not drooled. The link is just right here : http://mymagnum.co.id/index.php/nationalpromo

Untitled
A friend took a quick shot of me when I’m about to eat this tasty ice cream. Yes, that is my new YSL arty rings. Imagine if you could buy so many different colours of arty rings?



Are you as excited as I am? I know you are! You only need to find the special code in Magnum ice cream stick inside the package with special promotional sign.
I’ve just googling for their website to get more information, and here’s their website just if you want to know more: www.mymagnum.co.id .

This promo ends on 18th March, which is just a few days to get a chance! Better hurry. I’ll also get myself another magnum very soon.

'The Help' Movie

Got a little time to post this before going out for dinner .
 Last week I watched a very touching movie, a movie that made us think, titled 'The Help'. This movie tells us about black women taken care of white people's child and still, treated like an animal. With background setted in 1960s, I spotted their retro outfits.

You have any thought to try it? Well, i'm 100% gonna support you. I think this is uber cool that I want to share it to you. Just don't dye your hair like Avril Lavigne in 2006 (remember that one stripe of shocking-pink hair?).
So, good luck making your decision. ;)
