It Ain't That Blue of a Day

If you're following my tweets (follow me if you haven't) then you'll notice that I'm very happy today ! some may know why and those who don't, I'll let you know later on during the month :D

I had quite a good day despite the lack of sleep I had. There was another power cut-off at around 12midnight (right the time i was about to doze off). If you haven't noticed, Jakarta is one of those cities where you can't sleep without Aircon or you'll sweat. Well, that's kinda what happened with me last night. I couldn't sleep because I was sweating -_-"

Here's what I wore today . I'm doing the denim-on-denim thing here . I've heard that it's a big no no but with the right combination of denims, the look can actually be amazing . I hope that I get this denim on denim thing correctly **cross-fingers**
Unbranded acid wash denim jacket, U2 black tank, Cotton.Ink scarf, Armani Exchange DIY distressed miniskirt, Forever21 bangle, random rings, Zara Ankle Boots, Rayban Wayfarers
my face was being camera-friendly today . :D
i love doing these slideshows on Adobe ImageReady ! they take up less space :)
face close-ups here . took the pictures in a total dark room to get the "flash effect".
I LOVE MY COTTON.INK SCARF VERY MUCH ! THE GRAY SHADE WITH THE NAVY THREAD IS SUCH A PERFECT FOR ME ! the brand also carries other uber-cool scarves in juicy colors . check their website out on http://www.cottonink.blogspot.com

As promised on the last post, I'll be posting on how I wear this "inVESTment piece" daily . here's the second issue of it worn as a triangle scarf.

u-ung said...

nice style!!!love those ankle boots and your washed jacket!!!great!!

jay said...

i don't like it. i've never seen denim on denim done well. not even on hot supermodels/actresses/fashionistas.

but i really like the top part of the outfit though. :) it'll look awesome with a high waist tulip skirt, anything else just not another denim piece.


Annie Spandex said...

I'm crazy about your jacket and booties!

Lilee said...

i am loving the acid wash jacketttt!!!

the answer to your question, "just curious, why did u kick agyness off the list ? hehe ." is because she doesn't appear on runways as often as she used to like a year ago and yeah... i just don't see her in magazines and on the net as much so yeah... i'll always still love her though!


Eva Silviana said...

Yofany said...

I hate not being able to sleep because of the heat. I hope you get the aircon fixed soon. - I think you did a great job with the denim on denim look. I really like your jacket and your booties are so nice.

I don't really have a secret to my skin care. I was hardly wearing any makeup in those pictures because I knew it would wash off. I use mineral make-up as a foundation, so that helps. I wash my face immediately after I come home, instead of waiting until night time. And I drink lots of water. I break out as well, so my skin isn't always nice. I hope this information helps.

Amazing blog, very soon look10.

onic said...

haha i know right! power out is the worse thing happened. but too bad it happened for many times lately. sigh. i was asleep when the power was out and woke up cause the room suddenly getting hotter. i tho we have heater, instead of air cond haha enough personal rambling ;]

yes, she looks really cool ha!

Cafe Fashionista said...

That acid wash denim jacket is truly the epitome of fabulous!

Sorry that you were unable to get much sleep. Where I live in Southern California, in the summer it reaches over 100*, and if you don't have air conditioning on, you just feel like you're going to die as you attempt to go to sleep in a sweat bath. Hopefully the weather cools down for you! :)

Couture Carrie said...

Love the double denim, darling ~ you look fabulous!


Juliet said...

I can't believe it's that hot anywhere! We just had snow and even though it's gone now temperature is still around freezing!

Pop Champagne said...

first of all, CONGRATS ON GETTING FEATURED ON FAB SUGAR!!! And I love that first picture of you, that can be an editorial piece right there "the funky 'I don't give a damn' street wear look" :D I'm totally envious of your Gucci purse!

I agree that all barbies should be priced around the same LOL! But I guess some have more gadget than others... but they shouldn't be 2X the difference!

Phyllis said...

Looking hot!! Love the acid washed denim, esp with the ankle boots!

Tori said...

Love the first outfit. Denim on denim is the best. haha. =D

Sophie said...

Bunnie said...

I love your accessories in this look.

BTW, eyelashes. I've got those short Asian ones too. I'm wearing false lashes in my picture! They do wonders. :)


Valencia Lia said...

Re:Yeaaa,I do wear such outfits to work everyday! heeee
