Bad Shoes Day

Hahahahahahha I just wanna laugh...

I found this beautiful red wedges that my mom bought +-4 years ago. Still new, has never been used, kept neatly in the wardrobe. We've just forgotten that we had this wedge.

So I wore this wedge to the office this morning. And what happened next (in the afternoon) was a totally disaster.

Both the sole's are broken, the inside's fabric is torn
Hahaha should I feel ashamed? I just wanna laugh :D
So, lessons I've got today:
  1. Buy a high quality pairs if you need an everlasting shoes
  2. Just wear your shoes right away (don't keep it too long) or it will be torn by age (or, obsolete --> this is a word I remember from inventory management course, hahahahaha)

Hope my Grandpa get the best from Allah..

Do I love purple??

Have you been in those times when you peek at your wardrobe and find nothing to wear? Nothing looks good on you, and then you'll just take the same piece of clothing that you wear over and over again?
Hehehe... I call it: Bad-clothes-day!

My go-to piece when the Bad-clothes-day come.

Stripey purple-grey shirt/denim skirt/big bag (I can put my laptop there)
I've been wearing those stripey purple shirt maybe hundreds of times... It's becoming shabby. Hmmm I think I should buy another go-to piece.

And when the mood of mix & matching comes...


Flower dress/bels/purple shirt/black cardigan.
Too bad that's not a real flowery dress (it's just a piece of fabric, hahaha)

PS:
I'm sorry if I have not replied your comments/visited your blogs, been busy lately... inshaAllah I'll try to catch up this weekend... ^^
For the dressup doll: Please wait for the next set and the boy version :)

DIY Paperdoll

The second paperdoll I made! ^o^ Yaaayyy...
When I knew that my previous paperdoll was downloaded by handmade beginnings and printed for her children, I felt sooo excited to make another paperdoll! This time, the paperdoll is much more simple. But I love this more :)

Vintage skirt

Peeking into mommy's wardrobe, I found a vintage flowery skirt I loved to wear years before (and my mom used to wear maybe some decades ago :p)..

Shirt: mixit, skirt: Mom's, flower brooch: DIY, Photo color effect: aliceinunderland
Wore those outfit to Pusat Grosir Surabaya (PGS) with Mom. You can find clothes & jewelries there, which prices are cheaper than mall's.


How's your day? ^^
Hope it's flowery too ;)
Looks like now's a busy week for college students... Ganbatte, friends!
*Wow, I didn't realize that now I have no exam :D alhamdulillah

Breakfast at Tiffany's

I've bought a novel, Breakfast at Tiffany's, but haven't done reading it yet. It is said that Holly Golightly, the female character, is one of the most legendary-famous-stylish-woman at literature.

Source of picture: here
Then, why not making adaptation of her style? Using looklet.com is fun! ^^

Yeah, so simple. The modest and humble version of Holly!


Well, actually I've done a photo shoot of myself using black dress + necklace + eating Gery Chocolatos (miss Holly is a smoker, but we do not smoke, rite? :p). But due to the lack of jewelry, my style is not good to be published! Hahaha..

Good day!

PS: Thanks for riesta for giving me this award. Thank youuuuu ^^

Gone fishing

Whoaa... first post of 2010!!
Hehehe... I'll post some topics:
  • Alhamdulillah, it's been a lot of joy since I bravely wrote my hidden creativity to this blog. It's pretty relieving, hahaha... Thank yooouuu dear aifa for giving me Creative Blog Award (you should check her blog, she's soo talented!)

  • Last Saturday I was in a not-girly-mood.. I didn't want to wear something sweet. So, I put on boyish clothes. I've just realized, looks like I wanna go fishing -___-'


Shirt: Kota (it's my mother's, yeah she bought it in boy's boutique), vest: Korean (given when I was at 6th grade. Surprise it still fit me!)
  • I've been really really really dreaming this to happen. My sketches. My own boutique.

 I hope I can realize my sketches!

Well, sorry for being so me-me-me... Have you ever felt something that makes you sooo excited, like there are so many butterflies on your stomach, you want to write down your ideas and make a to-do list, but don't know what to do first? Hehe, I'm feeling it now... Ya Allah please help me to realize my dreams (and my reader's too), amin.
Have a great day!
