Short Note

Just to clear things up...I'm not getting skinnier. I weigh exactly the same as before, not any less. Wearing some clothes just makes me look skinnier, and vice versa. And yes, I am basically 'gifted' with a skinny figure. That's all. Thank you for your concerns though..:)

xoxo

Pass a Port

Went to the immigration office to renew my passport today... happyyyy!!! :)

Heels Kill

My Steve Madden shoes finally arrived...the moment I tried them on, I literally felt like throwing them away...there's just something wrong with the sole pattern that makes it very uncomfortable for the feet especially when walking in them. It's nice to see though. Grrrr.

PS top worn as dress, unbranded silk cardigan, Topshop bandage skirt, Forever 21 studded belt, unbranded sheer tights, D-I-Y necklace

So I guess these shoes will only come out on occasions where I'll just sit most of the time...:)

Monday Release

My dreams keep on changing, but I do realize that they tend to grow bigger. I am an optimist, a believer that us humans can achieve almost anything in this world, and make change for a better world. But in order to make real dreams said, I need a companion. A partner who supports me, and hugs me for every failure and success I attain. I am tired of fighting alone, mapping out my bright future which day by day seems more surreal than real. When all my visions alter every certain day, one remains the same. I want to be with near him.

Sun(ny)day

It's like punching the sands of the beach. You have this huge rage inside, but no matter how hard you punch, it doesn't hurt. And that hurts even more.

Anyway, yesterday's purchase:

Miss Selfridge dress...
vintage sunglasses, unbranded socks and gladiator sandals

(X)SML skirt...
Zara tights, unbranded t-shirt and gloves, Bruno Magli shoes

Honestly, I haven't been in a very good shape lately, physically and emotionally. I need a break from all my everyday scene, really.

The Structural Way

Must buy: Topshop structured mini skirt :D

From Morning to Morning

Just reached home...now gonna sleep...adios! :)

(X)SML dress, Forever 21 studded belt, Topshop bag, Urban Original gladiator sandals

Surprises come when you least expect them. Look what Galuh from Garage Store sent me! Yay!!!


The layering of floral cotton and tulle is just beautiful! Thank you soooooo much, Galuh. It's perfect...:)

Topman t-shirt, Dorothy Perkins flower brooch, unbranded belt as scarf, Belle shoes

Forever 21 lace dress, vintage floral scarf , Raiment Shop necklace, Charles & Keith shoes

Those Colors To Die For

Oh how I love this vintage color-block blazer...but Indie Cult Vintage selling it for $149 is just waaaay too expensive (for me).


I think I'm gonna have something like this tailor-made instead. Yay.

PS: I don't sound happy, do I? ;p

Quote of The Day

"I am often bothered by pessimistic thoughts. Not that we should be too confident, but I really think everything in life is worth a try. Though things might not work out later on, I believe that at that point of time, everything would feel different. You cannot forecast the level of happiness or sadness in the future. And you don't need to. Humans are meant to try their best and simply stay positive. God decides."

Wonderboot Surprise

Yesterday after work, I decided to drop by the Wondershoe shop (yes, I finally went to THE shop after all these times purchasing online ;p). And guess what? Turns out they also make boots…hahah!! The shop owner explained that Wondershoe boots are made seasonally (so it’s some sort of limited edition stuff) and are not sold online. I guess it’s those kind of surprises you’ll only get if you visit the shop often. Lucky me I dropped by at just the right time :D

I got mine in purple! Yay!! :)

Zara leather jacket, unbranded t-shirt, Padini denim skirt, Dorothy Perkins tights, D-I-Y necklace

Wondershoe shop at Jl. Kemanggisan Raya No. 103 Jakarta Barat.

PS: I look kinda pregnant in the above picture...weird.
