UJUNG KULON

I rarely update on my trips/holidays nowadays mainly because I don't have a shadowing photographer like most bloggers do. Despite that there are no usual outfits photos to go with this post, I still felt like sharing this Idul Fitri break holiday destination because I haven't seen such natural beauty in quite a time... I've been immersed in my city lifestyle for so long that I forget, just beautiful views of the ocean can make me smile at ease. This holiday season I hopped over to Pulau Peucang in Ujung Kulon. The clear blue waters and white sandy beach is still on the island of Java ! Yes, no need to go to maldives or whatever for clear blue waters and great diving spots... indonesia has got some of the best in the business!

finally utilizing my Peter Pilotto x Target scuba-material-ish top.. I had to layer it with another wetsuit because I didn't want the sexy hole in the back giving me an otherwise not-very-sexy 'masuk angin' (what is the english for this?? only us Indonesians use the term..) Excuse the non flattering baggy pants.. that was actually my husband's brother's training pants.. I didnt bring any pants/legging/swim leggings or whatever they are called.. so I borrowed whatever was available at my cottage..

SHADES SEASON

One blog post after my usual hiatus and before the much awaited Eid holidays! I am in Singapore as I am typing this up. gone are those days when I used to tote around my SLR during any travels, now all I am toting is my baby carrier, a bugaboo, and my diaper bag for all those baby needs. But I won't be discussing any of that for the moment. Let's jump to the actual 'thing' I want to share..

remember my collaboration with Louis Vuitton from a couple months ago? Last time we worked with bags.. Now we are working on Sunglasses! I was extremely excited because I think many of you know that sunglasses have always been one of those accessories I often wear to complete my outfits. Together with Advan Matthew 's eyes behind the lens and the magic hands of Andreas Zhu (those cat eyes and brows are too good to be true eigh?), I couldn't be happier with all of the pictures produced. Hope you enjoy these photos and I wish an early happy Eid Mubarak to my followers who celebrate the holiday.

MEET VICTORIA

I think it would useless to write a long introductory post because I know a lot of people set their eyes straight to the photos. so yeah one sentence : Tuesday, May 13th 2014, I met Victoria Beckham !

Jakarta marks as the second appearance for Victoria Beckham with On Pedder after Singapore (Not bad eigh for Jakarta?). I am beyond grateful that I got the chance to meet and talk to her despite the fact that only official photos were allowed with Posh (still... the stubborn me and many other guests at On Pedder took videos/photos *see the youtube below*). During the event, the designer slash style icon introduced her Spring/Summer 2014, Pre-Fall 2014 collections and her exclusive range for On Pedder customers which includes limited colored version of the Pre Fall items in baby pink color.

OH SO BLACK

*if you have seen this post, there was some technology glitch so I had to reupload it*

hands down to the 'color' that never disappoints : black ! I think I have said this on the blog, but I will say it again.. When in doubt, wear black (not red!) Black is classic, slimming, formal, chic.. everything really.. and you don't have to worry about finding the correct shade that suits your skin tone. This is the second last yet my favorite set from my Louis Vuitton collaboration..

NN 14

grey tulle, navy & white lace, and black sequins all in one outfit ? Well, I couldn't ask for a better texture and color mixture ! I've been eyeing on this Louis Vuitton NN 14 bag ever since the campaign with Fan Bing Bing was released. It is not because bucket bags are creating a storm lately, but it's the subtle monogramming and graffiti work by Stephen Sprouse that caught my attention. I don't usually aim for something monogrammed but when it's indistinct like so, defo a green light for me.
