.the hustle and bustle of Jakarta.

I never realized just how much I miss my hometown. Despite all the traffic jams, hot-sticky tropical weather and all my alergies haunts me all at once, I really do love Jakarta. It's my second day here and I am deprived of internet connections and my blackberry decided to now work! Finally after hours of waiting, I am connected to the world again!
So far, I've eaten food that I missed most, grandma's cooking :D and pampered myself with a trip to the hairdresser and a new hair-do is called for! As soon as I get my hands on my new mac, I will be online more often. Speak soon!
From Jakarta with lotta love!!!

.FASHION: BURBERRY SS11 SHOW REVIEW.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010






.my favorite looks from the show.

I thought the show was very inspired. First of all, the choice of songs were amazing! I especially loved the song for the finale. The look for Burberry this season, is a clash between biker/rocker-chic, yet there are touches of feminine/floaty silk dresses and leopard-print dresses. Definitely, loving their new take of trench-coats. Especially love the pop colors used in accessories such as, belts and bags. Amazing show! The genius Christopher Bailey has once again amazed me! Huge fan :D

.FASHION: BCBGMAXAZRIA spring 2011.

Friday, September 10, 2010

Just finished watching BCBGMAXAZRIA runway for spring 2011. So what's to come for spring this season? Since I live in a place where the season is flipped upside-down, all things on the show is applicable straight away in Melbourne (well... not just yet.)
They start the show with arrays of LWD (Little White Dress), mostly knee-length and using very light fabrics. The cute thing about the dresses are some includes invisible pocket which is great. I love my pockets! The show than gradually shows more taupe and grey tone dresses, off course coral colors and finally the basic black. The finale dress is stunning! Black lace maxi, a small touch of goth-romantic. The dresses on show are very wearable and perfect for spring, and off course summer.
To watch it yourself, here's the link (copy and paste to browser):

Back home at the moment and in dire need of warmer outfit :D

There are times when I wonder, why oh why did I ever choose to go to school in Australia? It's so far away from everything! I could've picked State-side or better yet, Europe! As an avid buyer and lover of fashion, I'm devastated now that I realized how far away I am from fashion-civilizations!

.WISHLIST: get me my bowler!.

Monday, September 6, 2010


.ASOS Bowler Hats.

Looking for this hat almost feels like looking for needle in a haystack! I've been looking everywhere for a bowler hat and Melbourne seems to hide them from me. The one I found on ASOS is exactly what I wanted, however keep in mind, I do have to pay shipping for this item. Therefore, a wonderfully inexpensive 20 pounds hat, becomes a quite expensive 30.50 pounds hat. So with heavy heart I must keep searching for my perfect bowler hat! OPSHOP HERE I COME!
