Fashion: Warm Sunday

Sunday Service's Outfit [2014: Chacky]

Sunday Service’s Outfit [2014: Chacky]

Hi readers…. it’s Sunday again! The weather has not been really friendly to the Jakartans in these last few days. It has been raining heavily nearly every night. Just like early last year, Jakarta is flooding again. Thankfully I am living in Southern Jakarta, where the heavy rain rarely caused flood in these area.

Despite the fact it was dark yet cloudy, I tried to have fun on Sunday by going to church and lunch with my Heirwid and Chacky. You might ask yourself “What kind of fun does she have in the church? Have fun in the church? That sounds weird!”

Well if you watched Sex and The City sit-com, you might still remember what Carrie said about church and fashion when she saw Mr. Big at the church with his mom.

She said “As I watched people leaving church, I was amazed at how they looked. Valentino, Escada, Oscar de la Renta. What is it about God and fashion that go so well together?And suddenly, there he was wearing Armani on Sunday.

So here I was wearing something  quite different today. I wore something, which is elegantly warm and sexy (at least that’s what I think). Somehow I love the look of myself.

Honestly I haven’t been taking care of myself since November because of stress. I got some complaints from some of my friends that I didn’t look well because I didn’t take care myself well, didn’t cut my hair or even facial. And here I am getting back on my feet again. What do you think?

Fashion: Shoes Shoes and Shoes

For my happy feet [2013: E O]

For my happy feet [2013: E O]

How many pairs of shoes does woman really need to make them happy? Two? Ten? Or 100 pairs of shoes actually could make woman happy. What kind of shoes would make them happy? High heels shoes? Kitten Heels? Ballets flat? Pump shoes? Boots? Loafers?

But why shoes? Why shoes could make women happy? What is so special about a pair of shoes? Why are women just crazy in love with those shoes?

Oh shoot! I should just have asked myself why? Why do I love shoes? Why shoes could make me happy? What have made me fallen in love with shoes at the first place? Could shoes really replace man to make woman happy? Well… whenever I am feeling upset, I am just purchasing for beautiful shoes and YES it makes me happy.

Lemme tell ya somethin. . .

I actually have never been such a fashion freak before. Even many of my gay friends always talked about the latest trend on the fashion industry or about luxury fashion product with the brand, which I could hardly pronounce it correctly, I have never given a damn about fashion.

The old me

The old me

Back then I was just kind of a girl who would only wear t-shirt, jeans, sneaker or slipper wherever I went. Campus. Church. Hang out. I rarely dressed up. I did not really care what was the brand of shoes. I did not really follow the latest trend. When it came to accessories, I just wore something ‘unique’ such as Apache Indian bone bead choker necklace or handmade wood earring. Ha ha ha… I even was known as an ‘ethnicgirl’ *blushing*

But it was seven years ago. Times flew, things changed.

I started to fall in love with shoes since I knew Carrie Bradshaw. Of course, I have never known her personally. She is just a fiction character from the Sex and The City tv series. So, blame it on her baby!

Anyway, I am not Imelda Marcos, I don’t own 2,700 pairs of shoes (What? 2,700 pairs of shoes? This woman must be mad! She needs to get her head checked! 2,700 pairs of shoes? What is she gonna do with those shoes? Can I have one of them).

So far, I only own 35  pairs of shoes from Manolo Blahnik,  Christian Louboutin, Guizzepe Zanotti, Tods, Dolce and Gabbana, Burberry, zara, Timberland, Aldo, Pedro, Nine West, Guess,  and many more.

Geez….! Sometimes I am questioning myself why I start to love designer shoes as well? Louboutin, Zannotti, Tods, Dolce and Gabbana, Chloe, Choo, Blahnik and others *sigh*. I don’t know… I just found those designer shoes are just gorgeous, pretty and my feet would just love them.

Rocking my red sole

Rocking my red sole

I have to admit that those pretty designer shoes are also killing shoes, sometimes I got blister and also foot pain whenever I wear them for so long. But guess what? I am still rocking them. because whenever I wear a good pair of shoes, I always feel more confident as I stand taller. I also always feel sexy. That’s why I love shoes.

Other than that, I love it when a stranger, whether it is a woman or man, told me that I am wearing a gorgeous pair of shoes. I love it when other woman is staring at my shoes. It would just give me a shoegasm.

If there is a cure for a shoe addiction, I doubt if I would ever take those treatment because shoes are just so pretty and they never broke my heart before (except when it is so phucking expensive).

For your information, if you are designer shoe lover, you must be a smart shopper so you don’t have to waste your money. I have never purchased for the latest collection because the price is just too much. I just have to wait for four months and I would get a good deal with a 40 percent cheaper from it’s real price.

Lately I got best deal for some of beautiful beautiful shoes with 50 percent off, a pair of  Mary Jane shoes by Manolo Blahnik, a pair of the famous spike shoes by Christian Louboutin and also a pair for Leopard ankle boots by Dolce and Gabbana. I am dying into shoes heaven ….

I have never really a big fan of checked shirt but these days I am becoming one. Well, let me put this way. I am not really a big fan of checked shirt but I am a big fan of boyfriend style shirt. It is just very comfortable and easy to wear. For boyfriend shirt, I prefer to combine it with short jeans and high heels or feminine flat shoes.

The idea of boyfriend fashion is all about wearing clothes that look a size too big for the wearer. But whenever I am wearing a boyfriend shirt, I always roll up the sleeves hence it gives the feminine look.

Anyway, what do you think about my new shaved head? Have a great day readers!

Fashion: Tripping

Tripping [2013: E R]

Last week, I went to my hometown, the city of Yogyakarta for three days.  Yogyakarta is one of popular tourist destination in Indonesia. It is also known as a student city and cultural city with relatively simple yet slow-paced lifestyle.

Therefore whenever I am there, I like to dress casually with short, tank top and sandal as it is not such a good place to walk around in high heels or fancy shoes.

So here I was wearing a simple tank top, classic short denim, canvas handbag, slipper and handmade hairband from a local art showroom in Prawirotaman.

Have a fabulous weekend readers…

Fashion: Boyfriend Shirt

Boyfriend shirt [2013: E R]

Hello readers….. I just wanna give a quick update on my blog today.

I have been in love with boyfriend shirt style lately. Somehow it appears very stylish yet sexy.  As I am going to do a lot of outdoor activities today, I decide to wear boyfriend shirt style with denim short and open toe heels.  It is very easy to wear, comfortable yet sexy, I think it is perfect for the humid weather outside.

Actually I was thinking to wear white flat shoes so I could move around easy. But flat shoes were never sexy and too casual. On the top of that, I would look extremely short. Therefore I decided to wear these manon heels.  It made me lil bit taller that I actually am. What do you think?

Have a good day!

Fashion : Outlaw Orange

It has been raining a lot in these last three days. Gray cloud keep covering Jakarta blue sky and block the warm of the sun light. It is wet, misty and grey. I don’t like this kind of weather because it is unable me to do outdoor activity. It also makes me feeling blue and gloomy.

Anyhow the universe has been quite kind to us this morning. Despite the fact it was cloudy, I still could enjoy warm weather outside and we (E and I) decided to go for brunch at Four Season Hotel. Brunch on Saturday? Well, why not?!

Egg Benedict day [2013: Oktofani]

Today actually we celebrated our five years anniversary. Unlike the previous years that we would go for vacation to celebrate it, we chose to have a simple brunch in Jakarta, followed by going to the gym together and watching Pacific Rim.

So for the outfit of the day, I decided to go for orange. I wore my own design abhaya skirt, crop top and strap wedges sandal for a simple celebration. I really like to combine the abhaya skirt with crop top because it is a combination of the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ style. On the top of that, I love the orange color domination. It is very simple, classic yet edgy. Don’t you think so?

Okay readers, have a great weekend!

Fashion: Abhaya Skirt

I am in my Abhaya Skirt [2013: E R]

I am in my Abhaya Skirt [2013: E R]

I always love traditional textile, be it batik, songket, ikat, sarong or tenun. Unfortunately, I always find it difficult to find a ready wear outfit, which is made from traditional textile, that matches to my taste. Hence I always designed my own outfit.

Well, some people say that there is nothing new under the sun and I would say that my design is not particularly original. But I often put a little detail on my design such as button, zipper or line.

Here it is my latest design, A-line skirt, which is made from orange and green Cambodian silk.  The skirt has no waistline and use invisible zipper on the left side. And I named it  Abhaya skirt, which means fearless skirt.

Somehow, I really like my Abhaya skirt because I can wear it for formal meeting or hanging out with friends. It all depends on what kind of top that I am wearing with.

So what do you think?
