Unattended yet undeniably, is how fashion took parts in people’s life that even innocent-8-years-olds are affected. Not even slightly aware of the reccurence of the grunge trend, or that John Stamos rocked denim jacket when he was the coolest uncle on TV, or even the fact that Britney & JT as a couple once showed up on AMA wearing top to toe denim, and generally any other cause of early 2000’s denim craze, a girl asked her mother for a denim jacket. All she knew that it looked cool and that all her friend seems to own a pair.
and to give this whole narration a little more context : this is the story of yours truly.
While this, and this, might indicate that i am a member of black glorifying troop (with Emmanuelle Alt, Victoria Beckham and Sara Donaldson as possible comrades), i have far less experience in wearing black from top to toe compared to my experience in cramming as many words as possible in one single sentence.

There’s an ambiguous quality of the shades that lies between white and black. Such quality that makes them complements every other colors, including those from their own kinds. So when the rest of all my black and white clothes are piling up in the laundry, i decide that it might be okay to stay in the limbo.
No worries, your monitor screen is not broken. The lack of colors you see is due to an attempt i made to dress myself up in reminisce of old broken TV screen. Continue reading
There were days when i tumblred through the nights, and now i spend all day building a dream home upon a thousand home idea pins. For that reason, if only online hoarding was a paid job, i’d probably be rich.
Internet allows us to see places we never visited, collect clothes we never owned, hang out with celebs who never knew we were alive, and feel the moment we never experienced. Basically creating the life we never had. Although that life only lies within millions of codes in the virtual world, it feels satiating enough that we prefer to sit in front of the monitor all day instead of actually make our way to it.

How do you function when you see thousands of colorful explosions in mid air? All i can do is stare with an open mouth and childish grin. Nope, i’m not even functioning enough to snap pictures for instagram (hashtag #happynewyear, #fireworks, #2014 — none of them).

Few days a go, thanks to my friend Beatrix, i was able to attend one of the small event in Jakarta Fashion Week as her plus four. Given a chance to show up at such event where you can express your personal style –like half-shaving your head and dyeing your hair tangerine, or wearing outfit in the most eye pricking colors– without getting any judgmental stare, i grasped the opportunity by wearing:
It took me
quite an awfully long time to finally come out with an outfit post. Although having no time and no worth-displaying-outfit being my main issue, to be honest, i just don’t want people i know in real life to talk about it (Yes, if you’re my friend from uni, or a family member, and you’re reading this, i’m talking to you). It’s just… i feel uncomfortable if someone i actually know come up to me and say “haha! i read your blog yesterday!”.
Why? I don’t know… maybe i’m just weird like that. Continue reading
