That Little Black Dress

Dress KURO // Jacket ALAND // Shoes MARC JACOBS 
Bag LOEWE // Sunglasses GENTLE MONSTER

Often we wear black because it's the easiest decision. However, little black dress is more than just an easy piece. It is truly a classic, and with the right styling.. There are so many look that you can create for multiple events. 

Few years back, I almost had no black outfit. I don't really like to wear black, because I think it's too depressing. However, eventho I didn't like black, I still loved black dresses. I was so into that 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' idea. It's so classy – back then and now, my style identity still remain the same. I always like that cool sense, feminine yet boyish look. Pairing up cool pieces with totally classic item is something that I always like to do. 

So for instance, this very feminine flare cut black dress from KURO – I chose a vintage pink denim jacket that I got few years back in Aland Korea (need to put some pins, cus they're sick!). What to wear? Not heels, but a pair of white sneakers. Really love how it looks at the end... What do you think? You can also match it with bomber jackets or even blazers...


For a different occasion, of course you can still wear that little black dress with just a simple pointed toe heels (they make your legs look longer!)...

#REVESxKERO

Few months back, I was— and still am honored to launch my first collaboration collection with Reves Studio. I believe that many of you should have known Reves by now, if not, let me introduce you to the dynamic duo behind the label. Both name Karina, started Reves with the purpose of dressing women with the essential designs to look sophisticated and classy. No doubt these two girls have won women heart with their signature designs (fyi, they always have suits and signature white shirts in every collection!), they have also won Cleo Fashion Award last year throughout their journey in the fashion industry –they sure are the dream team !

The collaboration collection focuses silhouettes and semi-fitted fittings. The designs mostly suit working attire with a selection of basic and essential colors that can be easily matched for your day-to-day OOTD. Why suits? Cus I love them, I love how I can wear my suits for either formal or casual events. You can check the full collection here. If you notice, every look has v-neck line– cause it's my favorite neck line as it shows a little bit without giving too much exposure. When we did the designs, the outerwear are easily styled, can be worn multi-way ! what’s not to like about that?

Finally I wanna say thank you to REVES Studio team again, thank you for making me a part of this journey, such a mile stone in my life! You can buy the collection straight at revesstudio.com OR Galeries Lafayette! Thank you everyone for your immense support! Much love xo

#cottoninkdenim

So me and other 5 super cool girls – Alika, Patt, Nadine, Saffron, and Rahajeng got the chance to be the face of #cottoninkdenim campaign! So exciting....! We were all dressed in super basic and casual clothes by Cotton Ink. Gotta say I have my eye on this super light blue mom jeans (I'm a sucker for high waisted jeans and straight cuts)

Watch the BTS below

To be honest for me, it's really hard to find a good jeans. I found all the jeans that I have are too big ? But when I tried them on in the store, it fit just find. I have no idea why, but anyways.. I have some of my fav jeans all of them are high-waisted because I don't like butt cracks and you don't want people to see it.

How I style my jeans really simple, I like to pair it with white t-shirt or crisp shirt. Depending on what occasion you're going to, if it's a casual setting – you can just go t-shirt jeans and coverse combo. If it's slightly  trendy setting, I'll go with t-shirt jeans blazer/jacket and pointed pumps. If it's my work setting, I'll go with jeans, top with some details and a statement shoes. It's really crucial to have at least 1 good jeans in your closet – it's a very essential piece, you can wear it daily and just do whatever you want

V-Day and Chill

  • It's Valentine's Day ! For me it's a hectic weekend, Studio Jiro was packed with orders (thank you everyone for the support!) and even tho we were feeling a bit under the weather, Thank God we still managed to pull everything off.

Whether you have a fancy dinner planned, i hate valentines day dinner planned, who cares? What matter most today is that you love your life. Don't forget to love yourself, always strive to do better. (HAHA) Anyways, don't forget to show some love and appreciation to those you love, maybe it's your boyfriend, best friends, parents, or even TTMs. We know how tough life is, it's important to remind those who are special to us that they really are. And honestly, who doesn't love flowers?

Anyways, IF I don't have any dinner planned tonight, I would be watching my favorite movies - and here's a list for all of you what to watch tonight. It's a random mix of Korean Drama and romcom movies. Enjoy and have a sexy Valentine's Day XX

  • A LOT LIKE LOVE


Played by Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet tells a story about how fun and effortless a relationship should feel. I always tell myself that I want to feel that kind of relationship where you can totally be yourself and making fun of each other. And those scenes under the moon... so pretty

  • 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU


You have HEATH LEDGER in this movie, what else are you waiting for? It's funny, full of sarcastic remarks. I love love love love it.

  • WEIGHTLIFTING FAIRY KIM BOK JOO


This is my current favorite Korean drama. It's very light and you just want to laugh all the time, also the kind of relationship I want in life. It's very heartwarming and omg NAM JOO HYUK is so cute I can't. Btw me and ren do this all the time HAHAHAHA. To watch this drama you can watch it here

  • HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS


Another rom-com. It's just so funny, and I'm pretty sure when you do actually do the list here you'll end up losing your guy on step 3. Oh, Kate Hudson in that yellow dress is just loveeeeee

  • THE LITTLE MERMAID


I'm a huge Disney fan and Ariel is my favorite Disney princess. Sometimes I wish I were a mermaid so I can be friends with all the fishes and see all the wonders underwater. 

  • CATCH ME IF YOU CAN


I love young Leonardo Di Caprio and this movie is just so smart and so entertaining. I find story line about conmans, detectives, lawyer are so interesting maybe that's why I really like this next tv show

  • SUITS

Harvey Specter is just UGH! I mean confident but fragile and his bromance with Mike is one of the reasons why you should watch the series. and Sassy Donna.. loveeee!!! Their wardrobe for the show is also very sharp. me likey!

  • MARIE ANTOINETTE


My favorite Sofia Coppola's movie. Everything here is just so pretty – and I just love Marie Antoinette's story. It's very captivating and how she was beheaded at the age of 37 is just tragic. I love Coppola's art direction here, very different with Virgin Suicides. It's lighter, colorful, and more fun with dark edges too. 

  • CENTER STAGE

My mom took me to watch this movie and I fell absolutely in love with it. It's my number one favorite dance movie and after this comes Bring It On and Step Up. I've always been a fan of ballet, hello who doesn't read Mari Chan? I've always wanted to be a ballerina, I wish I had learn ballet when I was still a little girl. I found them so graceful, elegant and poise. Loveeeeeeee!

Rustica

I am beyond excited as I share this news to all of you – another milestone ticked in my life. As none of you might know, I'm a huge fan of scented candles, perfumes, you name it. I love sniffing those lovely smell. So on this Valentine's Day, Studio Jiro decided to collaborate with Duft and Chandelle – one of my favorite scented candle brand from Indonesia. 

I'm a huge fan of Duft and Chandelle, I have like 5 candles in total. I did bulk buying once for my colleagues cus they love it so much. So on this collaboration, Sherly and I we picked peony as our base scent because we like how peonies smell. It's everyone's and our favorite. The smell is delicate, pretty, and not too strong. We try to make this scent resonates Jiro's personality – moody, feminine, undone, and most importantly rustic. So we put oud on top of our mix, and in just one go we found our favorite scent: RUSTICA! If you want to buy it, you can LINE '@studiojiro' (dont forget the @) for inquiries. We'll be selling the candle for 220k each. But on this Valentine's Day, we have a package along with the flowers so you can get the candle for a very special price.

On Sunday We Wear Pink

Happy Sunday guys! Wishing you all of you a positive and great week ahead! Next week will be a busy week as we're entering Valentine period. So those of you who are still looking for a florist, don't forget to place your order for that loved one with Studio Jiro. We're still accepting orders until 7 Feb.

Anyways, today was a pretty good day – went to the church in the morning, had dim sums for brunch and lunch. Spent time with my family and friends. Need to do few arrangements for tomorrow's orders and I'm ready for the new week. 

I think on Friday last week, we discovered that Riccardo Tisci – Givenchy Creative Director exits the brand. I was in shock –really didn't know that it's going to happen like now. I think the fashion business are in shake with how the industry and trends are going. There are so many designers quitting the brand and moving around. Clare from Chloe also stepped down in the same week. Brands are changing directions and going towards the more street-lux look, brands hiring young and hip designers (e.g Demna from Vetements for Balenciaga), Supreme doing collab with Louis Vuitton (super smart business move), I've been feeling that Givenchy needs to create something again like what they did with the Rottweiler sweats, Nightingale bags, and studs –but didn't expect Tisci to exit this fast, he also didn't finish the women's FW17 collection, so there will be no Givenchy show in March. I'm really anxious and excited of the new era of Givenchy. Who will be the next successor? I kinda wish that a female designer would lead the team and give that feminine touch. Who do you think will take the reign?

Anyways, wore this skirt today and it's so comfy, and what would we love more other than pockets? 
 Will share with you my favorite collections from Givenchy on the next post... !

Uhm-spiration

Hello from my bed – it's 12:26AM and I just finished wrapping all the flowers for Saturday's order. Feeling so tired yet don't wanna waste time not being productive. While I'm listening to The Weeknd's I Feel It Coming – such a steamy song btw, I'll try to write this post. 

When Instagram launched the "Live" feature, the first thought that popped into my head was, "I don't think this feature is for me" Like what I'm gonna do? I don't think talking live is my strongest feature, I hate doing public speaking. But – after doing it several times... I think this could be an interesting platform – a new branch of creative content that I could dive into. I will try to come up with something for the section, or I'll just keep asking all of you to company me arranging flowers.
Anyways, one of the things that people ask me is to write more – so I'll try.  I was asked to do a post about the Spring Summer trends, I haven't got the time to collage all my favorite trends, so for a start I'll do a hair inspiration for 2017

Most of all of you might already know that I cut my hair! I did it at Blow Plus Bar in Lippo Mall Kemang. For the longest time, I have been thinking to cut my hair short, I'm really scared to cut it because I know that I'll regret it and plus my boyfriend doesn't like it. But anyways – life is short so YOLO. Back in December, along with my friend Bianca, we cut our hair and me being so YOLO – I dyed my hair too. 

The result is.... LOVE. I used this girl's haircut as a guideline, #pinterest, and FYI – I have like 4 other friends who use the same picture to show to their hairdresser. So I guess, short hair is the trend?
I think she's really pretty – anyone can tell me what's her IG?
 

Most people thought I also permed my hair, but I didn't. I asked the hairstylist to style my hair with a beach wave, which I really like. I like easy tousled and messy look. I don't think I can every do a super sleek hair. I like how things to be a bit undone. 

Unfortunately right now, being me – I don't really style my hair like this anymore. But when I do, I just use my trustee hair curler and curl my hair. But if you see me nowadays, I just put my hair in a half bun and VOILA! Hahahaha... It's not that bad right?


I'm thinking right now to cut it even shorter, so I can style my hair like this....

But I think before I cut my hair, I should fix the hair color first.. What do you think? 

Other styles that I think will go big in 2017 are prolly bangs, rose gold hair, undone – and raw looking styles.
Have a great weekend!

2AM Post

Hi, it's 2AM and I'm here in front of my laptop writing this blog with too many ASOS tabs opened. Definitely need to go to bed soon, otherwise I would look shitty and late for work later. So many things are happening right now, I should do something cus honestly I feel like I'm all over the place. Work seems to be endless and time is running out.

This comes down to one of my 2017 resolutions – to be neater and more efficient. Really need to work on my time management because I really don't want my work quality to be shitty and letting people down in the beginning of the year. 

So far what I have on hand right now is: a full time job, my side business – studio jiro, upcoming project – kerokoo, blogging, and other small freelancing jobs. I thought at first I can do it all, well but I guess I can but I feel like I don't have enough time in one day.

After giving it a much thought, I'm gonna go with 2 plans. Plan A: Prioritise. Decide which jobs are more important right now. Make a list – and attack. Plan B: if plan A doesn't work, drop some jobs and focus on the rest. 

Let's go with plan A for now and hope I can manage my time and improve my quality of work better. 

Til next time!

2017 and beyond

Happiest New Year 2017 y'all! Wishing you nothing but the best for the new year. Hope it's gonna filled with lots of opportunities, amazing chances, and of course fun adventure! 

Pretty sure the others would agree with me – 2016 gone by so fast. I wondered if I have made all the right choices / decisions in 2016. Anyways, mistakes were made, opportunities were taken or missed – I suppose everything happened for a reason. But I do wish this – I hope in 2017 annoying problems will be resolved. It is not good to keep rotten food long in the refrigerator for too long right?

One funny resolution that my boyfriend said that I should have taken into one is this – 'to stop wearing clothes like tukang satay'. I don't think I should listen right? Cus those baggy / oversized clothes are the best :P

A week has passed, how 2017 has treated you so far? For me, it's been good. This month I got featured on COSMO GIRL! January 2017 issue. Thank you COSMOGIRL! – all credit goes to my Val who took this pic when we were in Melbourne for Coldplay (and our siblings) 

I'm so excited for 2017, I'm really curious how things will go – how many new places I will travel to, how many new people I will get to meet... Let's not count the days, let's make the days count.

Seize it! Let's work hard and play hard !
