Weekday Outfit – Navy Blue Blazer

I’m not exaggerating when I say this blazer, which happens to be an online buy from Mango, is the best blazer I’ve ever owned (and I love my Zara, Banana Republic, and Massimo Dutti blazers!). The weight and drape of the material, the slim lapels, and the ruching on the sleeves are perfect. I love…

Weekend Outfit – Suede Bomber

If you have been reading a lot of fashion blogs like me, then you know bomber jackets and suede are having their moment in the limelight. So imagine my excitement when I found this khaki suede bomber jacket by an Indonesian workwear brand called The Executive. I honestly have not owned any suede clothing item,…

Weekday Outfit – Polka Dot Sleeves

Remember these pants? Another working day of the week, another top to pair with them. Navy blue this time, with polka dot sleeves. Noticed a formula? I tend to wear dark-coloured tops with my light-coloured bottoms because I like the contrast. Is it just me or do you do the same? Photos by Arnold Hozana

Lipstick Love – Loreal Mocha Gold

I love nude, neutral colours on my lips and my lipstick collection include too many variations of pink, brown, mauve, and coral to count (I’m hoping to feature my favourites in this space, hence the new series). Red, now that’s another story. Classic though it may be, I find it really hard to find the…

Weekend Outfit – Batik Midi Dress

I love finding unique, wearable pieces when I shop, and this dress is possibly my best purchase last year! I came across it in Bandung, and it is a modern interpretation of batik, a traditional hand-drawn fabric originating in Indonesia. I highly doubt the pattern on this dress is hand-drawn, but there are a number of…

Weekday Outfit – Pattern on Pattern

This is the extent of the adventure I have with my outfit for work: mixing different patterns on my top and pants. The outfit still looks grounded because I still kept the colours neutral. What do you think? Would you wear something like this for work? Photo by Arnold Hozana

Weekend Outfit – Khaki Green Maxi Dress

It’s a rare occasion when you see me in a maxi dress, and that’s because it’s just not the most practical or convenient choice. This one, for example, I tend to step on when I climb up stairs, but I allow myself some days of uncharacteristic dressing just so I don’t miss out on good…

Family Reunion in Lampung

For some reason, I forgot to post these photos taken during our year end holiday in Lampung. We try to go back to Arnold’s hometown once a year for a reunion, and last year was special because we had the entire family over. Moments like these remind us to slow down and remember the simple…

Weekday Outfit – Stripes

The other day my colleague told me I wore stripes quite a lot. What took me by surprise was that he noticed, because can you blame me? Stripes are classic and versatile. This top, for example, looks effortless and goes with everything. I wear it to work most times because it is made of a…

Weekend Outfit – Bare Shoulders

To be honest, looking back at these pictures, I don’t think this dress is right for me. Its shapeless volume would flatter someone taller, and the grey-blue colour looks dull on my warm skintone. Having said that, I do like the bare shoulders and billowy sleeves. Perhaps if it’s repurposed as a top? What do…

Sisterly Update

A piece of happy family news to accompany these photos: my little sister Christina is engaged and planning on getting married later this year! She’s the first friend I’ve ever had, and I’m thankful that to this day we remain very close. I’ll definitely miss her when she moves to her own place, but the…

New Year and Other Things

I’ve just got back from a Chinese New Year celebration with family in Jakarta and am still marvelling at how fast time flies these days. In a span of the past month, 2016 gave way to 2017, I turned 32, and the year of the fire rooster rolled in. For many people, this is a…
