Flower in the Dark

Forever 21 Top | Uniqlo Skirt | La Dulce Necklace and Stocking | Selkius Maxwel Shoes | Unbranded Clutch

The title of this post kinda inspired by my skirt that makes me think, "it's amazing that flowers can look extremely beautiful even in the dark." Somehow I also think that we should be like flowers who look beautiful even we are going through hard times in our lives. Be beautiful in your own way. No need to compete with others. Because just like flowers, they are all beautiful no matter what type of flower you see. And people always have preferences over their favorite flowers. So, keep blooming beautifully and let them in awe.

Oh, it's a throwback post anyway. It was what I wore to Indonesia Fashion Week 2014. I think it will be wasted if I don't post the picture on my blog ;)



Have a nice weekend,

Throwback to IFW 2014: APPMI New Member Fashion Parade

I know I'm such a lazy blogger and I lose count already how many times I abandon this blog or shall I call it my virtual diary. 
Still, I want to thank all of you who still bear with me and want to waste your precious time reading my blog. I have several questions from anonymous on my ask.fm asking me when will I post a new article on my blog. Really, really, thank you for your support!

Here I present to you a report from Indonesia Fashion Week 2014 day 3 (Feb 22nd, 2014)! It's been a year I know. So, let's have a throwback since I didn't come to Indonesia Fashion Week 2015 because of my thesis journey :")


I got the chance to watch Zooming Preview: APPMI New Member Fashion Parade (Part Two) and watch various collection from amazing designers. APPMI (Asosiasi Perancang Pengusaha Mode Indonesia) is an association which where Indonesia's designers and fashion entrepreneurs gathered. Every year they choose young designers as the successor of the association and continue to contribute their talent as an effort to make Indonesia be the capital city of fashion.

MARIANA MARIAWAN 

Mariana Mariawan's collection truly represents the color of the earth, ranging from brown, red brick, nude, and broken white which are easy to combined with other colors.
 
RIANI 

Riani's collection show the art of color blocking in a unique way. Totally bring a fun and colorful atmosphere during the show!

INEZ KANTAHURI

What is not loving Inez Kantahuri's collection? The combination of modern design and traditional print are really impressive!

AAM LAURISHA

Aam Laurisha knows perfectly how to make a piece of elegant clothing for Muslim women. I believe you can't agree more with me, right?

DJUANITA SENO AJI

Djuanita Seno Aji gives a modern touch to the ethnic patterned clothes. Personally, I love the gold and black dress so much!

YOGISWARA PRAJANTI

 
Painting can be made into dress? Too cool to be true! Yogiswara Prajanti made it real with "Lukisan Semesta" collection.

YUNITA PUJI AGUSTIANI
 
The collection really show us how Yunita Puji Agustiani realizing her passion into fashion. From pastel outfit to elegant outfit, this collection will complement your day-to-night look.

KORINA BUDIMAN

 Korina Budiman's collection juggling the show into a playground! Pastel color's outfit really reminds me of lollypop. 

ANTON L. SUNARDI

Anton L. Sunardi's collection dominated by elegant colors which is perfect for semi-formal to formal event.

ELEONORA SHINDY

Eleonora Shindy takes white color to another level! Who would have thought white dress can be really seducing?

 NELLY GUNAWAN

Nelly Gunawan's collection showed the beauty of floral print. Somehow this collection reminds me of Chinese traditional clothes, Qi Pao (Cheongsam), which also often using floral print.

RESTU ANGGRAINI

Restu Anggraini's collection showing us the art of mix and match three-tone colors outfit. The results are awesome, in my opinion. Before this show, I never believe that yellow and black are meant for each other.

RETTY SELYA

Retty Selya's collection are mostly in black and white color which combined with several patterns. 
Love the simple and sleek cutting of this collection. The color represents the earth which combined into two-tone or three-tone pieces of clothing. Perfect for your tea time or coffee time with friends!

KHANAAN LUQMAN SHAMLAN

Here are my favorites from Khanaan Luqman Shamlan's collection. The earthy tone made the outfit look so feminine and elegant, which I think are perfect for formal event.

ALICE SALINDRA

Alice Salindra knows best when it comes to make a gown which is playful and sexy at the same time. Definitely loving the wavy detail of the gown!

NISA TESANI

My favorite piece from Nisa Tesani must be the outerwear worn by model on the right. It looks like a cape at the same time which match the white pants and shirt inside perfectly!

NASARUDDIN

Oh, how I love modern kebaya! Kebaya is one of the famous traditional clothes from Indonesia. The modern version presented by Nasaruddin is awesome in my opinion. The details of the lace are so lovely and my favorite one are the right one which looks like a one-shoulder type of kebaya. 

EUIS ROHAINI

Euis Rohaini's collection also play a lot with traditional patterns which made into beautiful modern clothes. Again, the one on the right catch my heart at the first sight. Somehow, it looks like an Indonesian version of red riding hood outfit.

VIVIAN HUBERTA

Gotta love the sleek and simple yet graceful design of Vivian Huberta's collection. The outwear worn by model on the right are amazing! 

DWI ADI KUSUMA

Modern Moslem's wear by Dwi Adi Kusuma with color blocking theme are incredible with the touch of traditional patterns from tenun fabric.

IVAN GUNAWAN

The last collection was from one of the most well-known Indonesia's fashion designer named Ivan Gunawan. The intricate details of this collection really amazed me. Using gold color, Ivan Gunawan took elegant to another whole new level. I can say nothing but love.


Tell me which one is your favorite? Oh, and if you guys visited Indonesia Fashion Week 2015, kindly do share your experience with me in the comment section below :) I'd really love to hear your story because as I said earlier, I am busy with college thingy.

Daily Make Up Essential

Have you ever really eager to dress up but feel very lazy to put any make up on?
Well, I feel you :")


Make up always been girls' best friend but sometimes I feel not in the mood to wear make up, even when I'm traveling out of town. Ever since then, I always bring my sunnies to cover up half of my face! Very useful to hide your eyes with no make up on. No doubt for it, right? And the best part of it is you'll still look presentable and stylish as well. Say YEAY for the win-win solution!

But, then.. you know you can't wear sunnies everyday and everywhere you go right? That's why I also wear make up for my daily activities at college or to hang out with friend around the town. I always choose for natural-and-friendly-themed make up to accompany me everyday. I never wear eye shadow and not really into it except when I go to a party or anything formal. 

Another confession from me about make up: Shopping for make up at the mall can take a lot of time! Do you agree with me? 

If yes, than I have a solution for you! Just discover that Zalora Indonesia have a huge collection of make up to complete your collection! It's on the beauty section!
I can now feel relieved when my make up is running out because I can purchase it from Zalora anywhere at anytime. You should try to head over to Zalora Indonesia or simply click here to browse all of their make up collection with many popular brand!

Here are my daily make up essential that I wear almost everyday and thank God, I can find them on Zalora Indonesia!





Hope my daily make up essential suit you well and is it okay if I give you bonus? Yes? Okay, then here are selfie(s) of me wearing my make up :)



Have a nice day! XOXO

Suit Up for Fall!

With Fall just around the corner, some of you might be wondering what should your boyfriend or best guy friend wear during the fall? The answer is SUIT UP for Fall!


Who can deny the harmony between autumn leaves and wool suits, tweed blazers or even tuxedos? They are unbelievably made for each other to go hand-in-hand with crisp fall weather.

Bonobos.com presents The Fall 2014 Men's Suit Collection inspired by the early British rock invasion style, before they were all glam rock stars. Mick Jagger before he went big played a major part in the inspiration, this was all when he was still a lad. Other bands in their early days played a major role as well such as Kinks, early Who, and Screaming Lord Sutch.


Bonobos.com made their signature Italian wool Foundation suit even better this fall with brand new fabrics and updated interior details, including a more ergonomic interior pocket so grabbing that business card will be easier and definitely smooth. A finely-tailored wool suit is warm on its own, but adding a topcoat into the mix can be done as well. All of the suits come in Standard and Slim fits, and Short, Regular and Tall sizes, so you can find the perfect fit for your beloved ones.

I believe, the newest Tuxedo in Navy and Black would make the perfect look this Fall, too!
Head over to Bonobos.com and grab the new fall Man's Suit Collection before they run out of stock.



Enjoy the Fall!
Love,

Dance Like Nobody's Watching


La Dulce Happy Necklace and Bracelet


Just a random shoot that was taken long time ago. I've been quite busy with college stuffs lately. And I feel a little bit stressful finding and applying intern to my dream company. The fact is...

 Hope everything will be alright and my internship will goes well too :')

Anyway, sorry for abandoning this blog for  a long time! Will be posting new post about INDONESIA FASHION WEEK 2014 soon. Please bear with me and kindly wait for the next post :D
