ANOTHER WAY TO WEAR MY LIME GREEN JUMPSUIT

Throwing it back to last month's Cosmopolitan FM 16th Anniversary event again. Just wanna share a bit about my outfit which I really loveThat night I was wearing Happa by Mel Ahyar & Andien Aisyah embellished bomber jacket and Mazuki green jumpsuit which I've posted here before as a collaboration with Masari (I told you I'm ditching my little black dress to play around with this jumpsuit to show you how versatile it is!). Anyway, both are designed by my favorite Indonesian designersso I'm very proud to wear them despite the fact that I only borrowed the jacket for the event. Yes, if you don't already know, I'm spilling this secret: just like celebrities, bloggers don't always buy new clothes by or get free clothes from brands and designers to go to events, sometimes we just borrow them. By doing that we save so much money, but still can give you references on what wardrobe to shop and it is your choice to splurge or you know, find something similar with lower price. And we still can help the brands or the designers to promote their clothes. Win-win solution, right?

Back to this lookI completed the outfit with this beautiful set of chandelier earrings which I bought from Mango, my favorite mini bag from BOYY which I ordered from Kala Concierge, and a pair of silver high heeled sandals that I scored from ZARA in a very low price on sale seasonYou see, the stuff I wear are not all expensive. I like to mix high end brands with high street brands, from local or elsewhere. I really have no problem wearing low priced fashion items, as long as the quality and presentation is good.

Anyway, I think you can definitely try this kind of look for attending formal events like weddings, gala dinners, fashion shows, and such as. The question is, are you brave enough? I get a lot of comments from people who know the way I dress up that sound like, "That outfit is so you, it seems like you can wear anything. I can never pull off that kind of outfit." but the truth is you'll never know if you don't try. So be brave, try something new, experimentYou might find a different side of you and that can be exciting.

COACH SPRING 2018 PREVIEW: COACH X KEITH HARING

I have a thing for the brand Coach. I don't know why. Banyak brand high end lainnya yang lebih bergengsi dari Coach, lebih mahal, lebih iconic, tapi sejak Stuart Vevers menjadi Creative Director untuk Coach di tahun 2013 dan membuat kolaborasi dengan ilustrator Gary Baseman, saya selalu menunggu-nunggu koleksi menggemaskan apa lagi yang akan dikeluarkan oleh Coach. I love how he infused Gary Baseman's art, fur, NASA, dinosaurs, Mickey Mouse, tea rose appliquestuds, patches, fringe, and all that jazz into Coach collectionsSo playful, so creativeAnd now his Spring 2018 collection with a touch of Keith Haring prints makes me excited all over again. Sparkled with sequins and glittersthey're just so cute!

Dari koleksi pakaian Coach X Keith Haring yang semalam ditampilkan di acara Coach di Plaza Senayan di mana saya ikut hadir, beberapa yang jadi favorit saya adalah lace slip dress dengan dalaman berbahan tulle, bomber jacket dan rok dengan sequin yang disusun seperti ilustrasi Keith Haring, sedangkan dari koleksi tasnya saya resmi jatuh cinta dengan tote bag biru tua serta clutch dengan motif ilustrasi Keith Haring. Too bad the clothes are for event display only so you can't buy it here in Jakarta, tapi untuk koleksi tasnya sudah dapat dibeli di Coach stores bulan Maret nanti. Okay, I'll stop talking and let you check out the pics of the collection below

HOW TO ELONGATE YOUR LEGS: THE LONG WIDE PANTS

When I want to look sophisticated (and taller), the long wide pants is my go-to piece. It really makes my legs look longer while giving that elegant vibe to my look. I think I own 4 long wide pants in different colors (white, black, hot pink, red) in my closet. A pair of long wide pants are really versatile and the style will definitely last forever. In this post, I'm wearing a ZARA textured white long wide pants with a top from Berry Benka X Molto Rose For A Lady collection, completed with ZARA velvet mini bag and a pair of shoes from Chapelet. This look is absolutely wearable for a day and night semi-formal or formal occassion. How do you like it?

BYE LBD, HELLO LIME GREEN JUMPSUIT!

IMG_7051 copy.png

Awal tahun adalah saatnya mencoba hal baru. Misalnya, menyimpan (atau jual sebagai preloved itemlittle black dress yang sudah berkali-kali dipakai ke berbagai acara dan membeli satu baju pesta yang unik, yaitu jumpsuit dari bahan satin berwarna hijau dari brand lokal Mazuki yang saya temukan di MASARISHOP.COM. Kenapa? Selain karena terusan berbahan satin dengan spaghetti straps merupakan salah satu hot trends tahun ini, fashion item ini tidak kalah versatile dari little black dress milikmu. Dan walaupun potongan lehernya rendah, bukan berarti kamu yang lebih suka berpakaian tertutup tidak dapat mengenakannya. 

Biarkan saya memberikan beberapa referensi cara untuk mengenakan jumpsuit hijau ini.

Saya sendiri mengenakan jumpsuit ini dengan pastel pink blazer yang juga berbahan satin, choker berhiaskan payet dan mutiara, serta mini bag yang juga berdetail payet. Untuk sepatunya, saya memilih sepasang sandal hitam berhak tinggi. Kombinasi yang menghasilkan kesan feminin, quirky dan kuat secara bersamaan.

CROPPED, STUDDED, SPARKLED

Eesome_Gobi_Off_White_Shirt.jpg

I've been in love with the local brand EESOME for quite a while now ever since I borrowed a few pieces from their Spring Summer 2017 collection for WOOP.id OOTD article photoshoot and found out that their clothes are well-tailored, made out of very comfortable fabrics, with such reasonable price. So when they announced on their Instagram thay they had released their new collection, I immediately checked their website. The first thing that caught my eyes was this cropped top that reminds me of a trench coat. As always, when I see a fashion piece, I imagine ways to wear it. This cropped top can be worn alone with pants, on top of a shirt or a dress, and it'll look good with any type of skirt too. And I think it won't be out of trend anytime soon, in fact I think it will last forever!

So I got it, and yesterday I wore it with this pinstripe pants, studded bucket bag, sparkly chandelier earrings and kitten heels. I love this look on me. What do you think?

PS. To all of you who asked what was my lipstick yesterday, it's MAKE OVER Intense Matte Lip Cream in the shade COCO. I love the color so much, the formula lasted more than 8 hours on my lips and combined with NIVEA Lip Butter under it, my lips stay moisturized!

A DAY OUT

In this unique grey neoprene top, accompanied with a white cullote beautified with a flowy assymetrical apron. Keeping the look simple with a pair of gold earrings, mini bag and black flats. I think this look may be suitable for a meeting outside the office or a day date with your guy or girls. What do you think?

WOMEN EMPOWERING FASHION

Last Monday, I went out for a business meeting. If things go well, I think it's going to be an exciting project, but for now I have to keep it a secret until we seal the deal. Anyway, this was my outfit for the meeting. Not as quirky as I usually dress up, I know. For a business meeting, I prefer to wear an outfit that says, "Let's do business.", something that will make people take me seriously, but still with a cheerful vibe from the bright yellow batik pattern on my top.

CottonInk_Giveback.jpg

What I love about this assymetrical yellow and white batik top is that it's not just a fashion piece. It is one of the fashion pieces that you can buy from Cotton Ink to support their #cottoninkgiveback programme. For each piece you buy from their Archipelago or #cottoninkxduanyam, you are giving 20.000 IDR to provide better health facilities for pregnant women and their children in East Flores.

Cotton Ink collaborated with Du'Anyam, Bakti Budaya Djarum Foundation, Gianni Fajri and Asmara Abigail for this programme, creating an inspiring campaign video Oa Melankolia showing  a glimpse of female local artisan in East Flores and the wardrobe designed for the programme.

This is not a sponsored blog post. I am trully amazed by my friends, Ria Sarwono and Carline Darjanto from Cotton Ink and also all the parties involved in the programme #cottoninkgiveback for their contribution in empowering others. I hope soon I can do something similar, but for now I'm writing this to invite you to shop #cottoninkxduanyam or the Archipelago collection by Cotton Ink to support the programme. I swear, you won't just feel pretty wearing them, but also feel good because wearing it means you're empowering women and children in East Flores.

I know that this programme was created to celebrate Kartini Day, but even it is not the month of April anymore, the programme is still on, so you can still show your support. Remember, empowered women empower women!

SIMILAR, BUT DIFFERENT!

Pernah nggak merasa bosan dengan atasan longgar putih berdetail cantik dan celana kulot hitam polos yang begitu mudah ditemukan di lemari pakaian atau seakan sudah jadi seragam banyak orang? Kalau jawabannya tidak, berarti kalian belum perlu baca post ini. Tapi kalau jawabannya iya, mungkin post ini dapat menginspirasi kalian. Soalnya, saya sudah bosan banget, lalu saya pikir, kenapa tidak mengenakan fashion items yang sama modelnya, sama nyamannya, tapi memiliki sentuhan karakter yang berbeda?

Setelah memutar otak sejenak, saya teringat kemeja putih yang baru saja dikirimkan teman saya dengan detail serut pada lengan dan kantong yang unik - bukan kantong dengan renda, pita atau lipit yang sedang ada di mana-mana, tapi kantong persegi yang sudut-sudutnya tumpul dengan aksen jahitan. Dibanding atasan putih yang biasanya saya pakai yang berkesan cantik, yang ini lebih terlihat maskulin, namun tetap elegan. Same white top, different character. Interesting, I like it!

Kemudian saya memikirkan untuk mengkombinasikan kemeja putih tersebut dengan sesuatu yang senyaman celana kulot, tapi lebih seru. Saya tahu, terusan celana alias jumpsuit bermotif yang sempat saya beli! Bagian celananya berpotongan seperti kulotSaya suka motifnya yang quirkyterusan celana kulot rasanya pas sekali sebagai pengganti celana kulot hitam polos yang super nyaman itu.

Selanjutnya, tinggal tambahkan aksesori. Saya lagi suka dengan tren kalung choker. Untuk look ini, saya memilih choker yang terbuat dari bahan metal berwarna emas dengan desain yang delicate. Kalau kalian merasa nggak percaya diri pakai choker, kalung rantai tipis panjang dengan leontin art deco tanpa berhiaskan batu dapat jadi penggantinya. Lalu, saya mengenakan kacamata dengan frame transparan hanya sebagai penjinak rambut. Hahaha! Daripada pakai bando yang bikin penampilan jadi feminin - bukan kesan yang saya inginkan waktu itu, saya berakal untuk pakai kacamata saja. It works!

The next accessories aremy denim quilted backpack with chain straps and furry flat sandals, menambah keseruan keseluruhan penampilan ini. Ukuran tasnya tidak besar, tapi cukup untuk bawa dompet, power banksmartphone dan 2-3 produk makeup untuk touch up. Itu saja cukup kalau sedang pergi tanpa anak bukan?

FLORAL EMBROIDERY

Bagi saya, aksen bordir pada pakaian dapat menjadi sentuhan yang sangat menarik. Mulai dari yang desain bunga, buah-buahan, atau yang lucu-lucu seperti smiley face, bibir, dan pohon palem. Beberapa bulan ini, baju dengan aksen bordir seperti yang sebutkan tadi sedang mudah ditemukan. Tapi kali ini saya jatuh cinta waktu melihat atasan tunik warna pink berdetail bordir bunga-bunga yang cantik. Akhirnya saya beli atasan ini dan sempat memakainya ketika pergi sekeluarga ke Pelataran Dharmawangsa. Waktu Snow sibuk memberi makan burung-burung di sana dengan kakeknya, saya menyempatkan untuk foto mix and match pakaian saya hari itu. Siapa tahu? Mungkin bisa jadi referensi kalian. Dan kalau butuh beberapa ide lain untuk mengenakan atasan seperti ini, silahkan intip artikel OOTD WOOP.id bulan April lalu di mana saya menampilkan 3 cara lain untuk mengenakannya. Semoga berguna!

FLORAL ON WHITE ON WHITE

I have so many outfit pics that I had only posted on Instagram. It's such a shame to waste them so I'm going to post the outtakes here and group them as my outfit blog posts, so I can keep a record of how I dress from time to time. And, whenever you need an outfit inspo, maybe these posts will be useful for you.

These ones were from when I attended Furla Spring Summer 2017 collection preview event at Wyl's Kitchen, Jakarta. I was going all girly with ruffles and florals with white as the dominant color.  How do you like this look?
