Candy Apple

In the mood for vintage things, I was wearing my mom's DIY red blazer and pairing it with Stradivarius skirt, Gosh lace up sneakers, and my DIY embroidered headband. The red blazer's attractive pattern quite amuses my eyes and resembles easy-to-love colorful confectioneries. And I can say that the whole look reminds me of candy apples, inspire me to make some in the kitchen!

Carnevale di Venezia But No Mask

I guess you already knew about Venice Carnival, the centuries-old tradition with mask as the main feature that is held annually in Venice, Italy. There are several styles of mask in the Venice Carnival such as Bauta, Columbina, Medico della peste, Moretta, Volto, Pantalone, Arlecchino, and Zanni. I took this photoshoot with Monita - obviously not in Venice - who had a costume and mask design class, but unfortunately the mask was left behind. But I don't need to hide my identity because you probably already know the owner of this blog. Anyway, I found an elaborate mask that covers the entire face and matches this Volto themed costume.

Let Your Feet Lead You

 After graduation I plan to not directly looking for any job for a few months so that I could finish my non-formal education which require much time. Yes, I'm a happy, busy unemployee! Then, more free times that I get than before makes me even more obsessed with sports. I used to do only skipping, running and swimming, and now my list gets longer including wall climbing, hiking, and I've recently been thinking about thai boxing after reading some celebs' secrets of their health and youthful appearance in their 40s without any surgery. That's quite tempting and worth to try I must say. 

Well, if you're a sports lover as well, raise your hands! Surely you're also interested with cool sports apparels to accompany you conquering challenges. If you need a pair of sport shoes with great quality to be your new buddy, I suggest you to visit Puma page of Zalora. It's easy to shop there, moreover save your time and cost too. Oh wait, perhaps your sport shoes are still in great condition, you can search any fashion apparels you need. There are lots of eye candy I'm warning you.

London Calling

God Save The Union Jack. Well, who doesn't like the Union Jack clothings anyway? This is one of very few state flags that goes well with fashion and also timeless. I don't wear something Union Jack by the way, but it's my print mini dress with the Underground picture which leads me to the thought of anything related to United Kingdom.

Hanging Shoes on Your Neck

Welcome to my DIY statement necklace post! It seems like I never let my childhood - 90's memories gone completely, because I'm gonna use my Barbie doll shoes as pendants for the necklace. So here we go. The steps are so easy to follow. I need less than one meter jewelry chain, a bunch of jump rings, a closure, and jewelry plier. I used black chain to give contrast from those neon colored shoes.

First, create a small hole on the side of shoes by piercing it by a pushpin. 

Then attach the closure to the chain. I used lobster claw type because it's the easiest closure to find in my place.

Attach the shoes to the chain by getting it threaded with jump rings using jewelry plier. Next, keep adding on shoes.

And finally, I'm so ready to wear my new quirky necklace!

Saturday Afternoon

Many people say baggy outfits are unflattering. I've got no problem with baggy clothing, I love it so much instead! Since I'm not a fan of tight outfits, I find this light baggy dress so comfortable yet stylish enough for a night out on the town. I also can tell I'm not big underneath it. If color psychology tells that earth tones make you look more friendly and approachable, to me, the earth tones of the dress makes my afternoon even more relaxing. Have a nice weekend!

Hello, it was All Yellow!

Yellow is the brightest of all colors, and this yellow outfit always brings a brighter day to me.  This outfit is my mom's DIY project which reminds me of lemonade to freshen up the hot days, love it. Here I featured blue as an unconventional, eye-popping lip color so I toned other aspects of my make up down. For hair, I braided my bangs until reach my ear, and finished it with a bobby pin behind it.  
Never expected before, that my simple braid headband could be featured in Look.co.uk as one of those adorable hairstyle inspirations for this summer, I'm blushing!
