The first time I saw this Chloe Skirt by Dreu Lona, I said to myself… “O my God! I gotta get that piece!

So I called a friend of mine, who happened to be the designer and the owner of Dreu Lona. I told her that I wanted to purchase the Chloe Skirt. Just within three days, Dreu Lona Chloe Skirt was waiting for me at home.

Back that time, I was thinking to wear it for my book launch because I wanted to appear classy. Unfortunately I changed my mind and rather to appear casual.

I kept Chloe Skirt in my closet for months until I finally found the perfect top for it. Both top and bottom are made by talented Indonesian designers. They do not just sell their products but unique creativity with quality to make sure that the customer return to them. Not just that, they also empower the local tailor to bring their idea into reality.

Sometimes I rather to purchase a good quality local designer fashion products than ready-to-wear international brands fashion product. It just makes me unique. On the top of that, we help the local economy growing.

Wardrobe: Summer Time

Summer Time [2013: E R]

It was 9: 20 a.m. I just woke up from my 12 hours of sleep. I still felt tired and sleepy. I really wanted to go back to sleep as I felt as dead as dodo bird. But I had to go to church to attend 11 a.m Sunday service.

So I opened the curtains, the sun was nearly blinding and I could not see a cloud in the sky.  Geez… what a beautiful day?! I said to myself. I dragged  myself outta the bed, got into shower and got ready for Sunday service.

When I stood in front of my wardrobe, I picked  the red blue checkered summer dress and manon heels for this Sunday service.  I thought that it would be perfect for this beautiful sunny day. Other than that, this is an appropriate outfit for church service.

Honestly, I really like the fact that the dress has a gold plate as a neckline. I  love this dress so much. It is quite classy yet sophisticated.

Review: Where To Shop in Ubud?

Whenever I go to Ubud, there are two boutiques that I always check out whether they have new collections or not. Those are Gingersnap and We’Ar, which are located in Jalan Hanoman Ubud. I would say that Gingersnap and We’Ar are the best boutique in town because they have unique design with a good quality material with a reasonable price. Gingersnap and We’Ar have collection for women and men

Gingersnap

Let’s shop in Ginger Snap [2012: Oktofani]

Gingersnap opened their store in Jalan Hanoman, Ubud in 2010. Since then, I have purchased some of their collections from a white short, green Turkish pant, a blue polka dot dress, a white turtle neck top and also a grey long Turkish pant with a belt.

I would say that Gingersnap style are very simple yet unique. On the top of that, they have a good material. I do not mind to spend Rp 650,000 (70 USD) for Turkish pants or Rp  350,000 (38 USD) for white tank top because of  the quality.

If you want to see what kind of collection Gingersnap has for you, you can check their blog at http://gingersnaplifestyle.blogspot.com/. However, I must say that Gingersnap does not have a well-managed website where you can see the preview. Yet, I can assure you that Gingersnaps has a wide range of good quality collections with reasonable price. Believe me, you will not regret every cent that you spend in their shop .

Gingersnap has two shops which are located in Jalan Raya Monkey Forest, Ubud, Bali and Jalan Hanoman, Ubud, Bali.

We’Ar

We’Ar It [2012: Oktofani]

I am not a yoga freak, I do not even do any yoga but I love We’Ar collections are yoga wear clothing. We’Ar design are very simple and very colorful.  Their collection is suitable to be worn as a casual outfit. We’Ar make their collection with an organic material which required a good quality maintenance if you want to keep your collection in a good condition. You can just check their collection in their website www.wear.itTheir website is very organized!

If you visit Bali, you can go to We’Ar stores, which are locate in Jalan Hanoman, Ubud, Bali and also Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak, Bali. But if you are not visiting Bali and want to get We’Ar collections, you can just go to their online store in their website.

Again… I assure you that We’Ar has a good collection of yoga wear with a reasonable price for a good quality stuff.

So, if you plan to come to Ubud, Bali. Don’t forget to visit those two boutique because they have good quality stuff with a good quality material. I can tell you that you will not waste your money for nothing in those couple of shops. It is because as I have lived in Ubud since  2009 and went back and forth between Yogya, Ubud and Jakarta there are so many shops in Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Raya Ubud that sells many crap with a bad quality stuff but with a very expensive price.

As a woman, who loves shopping, I don’t regret what I get in those two shop. I am writing this review is not for advertising their shop because I do not get paid from them. I am writing this review because I am just too in love with their collections.

Make sure that you pay the right price for the right quality of stuff! Bali has so many shops that sell good quality stuff with a reasonable price but Bali also has SO MANY SHOPS THAT SELL JUNK with unreasonable tourist price! So be a smart shopper if you are traveling to Bali! Happy shopping!
