Peachy Dairy

Impromptu accessorizing be the highlight of this look I'd say. Made the necklace using two threads of bracelet which both closures tied in the middle forming a pompom-like necklace, and the yellow leopard one as my project for Coxcomb. The top is from Est. 1989 Place - for kids - as long as it's colorful I would wear, no matter the size lol. Next, the silver pleated skirt was once a dress that I eventually cut into two pieces since the dress made me look like a girl coming from outer space. Also my old denim jacket that had never been featured in any photoshoot. Then, YAY!

Bali Trip with Veet Indonesia

Ah, this one should be posted in July. But you know, everyone's been busy with work, business and stuff, then the hobby got neglected for a while, but here we go. So me and my friend went for a Bali trip as we won a #VeetCation contest, held by Veet Indonesia. We didn't actually explore the nature part due to the limited time we had, but we did cafe hopping. How typically hipster, I know. 

About this look, I got my mom sew our orange floral scarf from Stradivarius to be two pieces of tops. One is a little bit longer that I could wear it as a mini dress, and the other one be like this, more like an off shoulder top. Oh, how I like to turn fashion items into something newer and fun! Been so lucky that my mom shares the same interest! For the skirt, I completed the look with a uniquely cross-stitched long skirt from Thailand.

Back to the #VeetCation event. On the second day we had a Treasure Hunt games at Pirate Bay, right in front of Nusa Dua Beach.

In the evening, we managed to have a dinner with the lovely Julie Estelle and have some chit-chat on her passion in the Indonesian entertainment and movie industry. To be honest, she was so nice, friendly, and inspiring! Thanks for the exciting experience in Bali, Veet Indonesia!

DIY Patched Leather Jacket

How terrible it is to witness your swag buddy, the faux leather jacket peeling by itself, slowly dying and being useless?  Moreover it is not reinforced with natural fibers like cotton, it would crack even when it is not exposed to the sun. Had been abandoned such poor thing in the closet for almost a year but I don't want its life to end too soon. No idea what to do. Low maintenance since its beginning, got abandoned for more years, oh how sad it looked.
 Then came the embroidered leather jacket into style, made me think to use some pretty embroidered patches to cover those huge cracks all over the jacket. Without taking too much time, a bunch of badass woven badges caught my attention in a craft shop and I automatically aimed to cover those irritating defects on my old jacket  using them. Wooo it's gonna look even more interesting! 
My neighbor The Cat, tried to steal my attention when starting to focus on my DIY Project of the day.

Tacky much? That's your business.

Pastel and Layers

I visited Farmhouse Lembang recently, and it was way more interesting than before to me since they seem to adding lots of ethnic stuffs and knick-knacks to their shop and also more areas with more rich,vibrant colors and patterns to enjoy. Such a comely place! Here I wore four pieces of clothing. Top tee from Miss Sixty, more pink top inside, knitted cardigan, and finally, the skirt which was embellished by myself using my pompoms leftover. Then the flat shoes actually had ribbon on them but I altered them with more pompoms from Stroberi. Yay for layering game!

You could dress up in some Dutch costumes here as well. And oh,  they have added more costumes to their collections. So many things to do and to see, if you haven't visited this place, do come!
