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 as one of those adorable hairstyle inspirations for this summer, I'm blushing!

Add Some Sheer on Her Night Out

This ain’t an average sheer outfit. I was wearing a dress designed by my talented friend, Monita Sitanggang. I can’t decide which trend it wants to get behind! She had a tie dye class last year and got a project to make some products of it. And the result is wonderful, she turned it into a cool tie dye-sheer-velvet dress and also proved that tie dye can be so dressy. When the sheer trend is usually paired with light fabrics, she combined it with velvet which is heavier. I love how effortlessly stylish I look with it and how the velvet, sheer panels and the sugary colored tie dye mingled in one piece of dress. The envelope clutch is made by her as well. Here, I dressed this up with a pair of Gosh lace up sneakers and a black bowler hat.

As Much Love As Flowers

Ditch the layers! Summer is near! This chiffon dress has totally won my heart since the first time I saw it on a shop's display. In a fitting room I thought whether it looked nice or bad on me I would still buy it because I was attracted to the bright abstract print and color combination. It suddenly gives me a lovely summer vibe even when the heat has gone.

Get Ready to be Crowned Because of Fanny Crown!

I am in my final year of college now, really can’t wait to graduate soon! In the middle of the hectic days, I have invited by the lovely Amy from Fanny Crown to join the monthly blogger competition to win a gorgeous dress. This could be a good excuse to have a rest from my stressful day for a while and entering the world of fashion styling I love.

Fanny Crown is a high quality dress company based in Paris. You can find any kind of dresses you need here like for debs, prom, party, wedding, you name it. You can also determine the dress size for individual dress style. I love to spend my time taking a look on this online store because they have so many wonderful dresses. Oh, I want to go back to high school prom again and steal the prom queen’s crown! Whoops.
 Well, I want to look my best in one of those wonderful dresses but it’s so hard to choose for only one dress at Fanny Crown because I want it all! I want it really special since it is my last farewell. Here are my options.

For most of girls thought of looking their best in the final year of college is important, therefore pre-planning is essential. To make it special everyone must have some kind of pre-planning; the first is gaining confidence and the second is an amazing, comfortable outfit to wear. To gain confidence we have to care about our health and beauty which means healthy diet and skin care. Most importantly confidence comes from the inside. The second one can be found on Fanny Crown and you can visit its blog for some further informations.

Since I’m a petite type, I chose this adorable Vintage Sweetheart Short Lilac Cocktail Dress with bright lilac color which will compliment my figure. What I love from this dress is the lilac flower embellishment and the bouncy layers of the dress. It can make a petite girl look more fabulous by creating more volume to the lower half. After seeing this dress I instantly imagined a beautiful garden with so many lilacs in it. Very breathtaking!

At first I wanted to pair the dress with several lovely accessories like this lavender flower crown and purple flower stud earrings. But I realized that it should be more mature and elegant since it's a college farewell. So the final items I chose are on the collage below.

I focused on the eye makeup so I chose Avon True Color purple eyeshadow. I love how purple eyeshadow could spice up brown eyes and look dramatically gorgeous. Since the eyes already got extra drama, I used Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs Lip Color Nude Lust to create nude color for the lips to balance the bold eyes. To avoid monotony color, I choose O.P.I white nail polish for the nails. 

Hairstyle is one of the most important elements for any special occasion. The neckline of the dress is an indication how my hairstyle should be like and I was interested to choose braided bun updo. You can see more interesting braid ideas here

Next, time to accessorize the dress. I chose lilac as a theme of the accessories and avoid to choose too many accessories at once.  I’m a big fan of earrings so finding earrings that match the dress is interesting to me. Of course I wouldn't take teardrop or chandelier earrings because the whole look will be too much. Stud earrings look good on every face type and the single stone is always stunning and classic.  Then I matched it with sparkling Tacori Lilac Blossoms earrings from Benari Jewelers. This moment I'm so into stacking rings or multiple rings and I found this cool multi-stone ring from Waterfall Lilac Blossoms ring collections.

Don’t forget to take this Versace Embroidered Leather Box Clutch to carry lipstick and cell phone.
The last but not least, the easiest way to change my height is to wear heels. So lucky to find this pair of lilac suede heels that match the dress perfectly.

So if you are preparing for any special occasion and want to look wonderful instantly, and also for those who are still confused what to wear to prom, I suggest you to check the dresses offered at Fanny Crown. You won't regret it. Show your fantastic smile, and who knows you will be crowned as the prom queen because of Fanny Crown!

Smells Like Grunge

 Just indulged my inner grunge, the "I don't care attitude", I realize how cool and exciting is grunge, although not everyone would like it. But the attitude of the grunge itself is being a bold individual that can't be bothered by what people call 'normal'. Lace up boots or sneakers always work for a typical grunge look. Unfortunately I don't have enough studded details to finish off the whole look since it was only the bracelet. 
First look: Magnolia leather jacket, little black dress, Stroberi necklace. Second look: Black blazer, shorts from flea market, Bunga triple chain necklace, Gosh lace up sneakers, Ray-Ban teashade.
