Red Raindrops

Jakarta showers.. My favorite weather for sleeping and staying at home.. It does become a pain in the ass when I'm trying to get from place to place as rain causes massive traffic here (I blame people drive 20km/h at the highway.. and I also blame the motorcycles who pack like 1/2 of the road under bridges which makes it impossible for cars to go through! i understand the fact that you need some shelter, but please find another place that wont disturb others. Hey we all pay road taxes ! )

Anyhow, I managed to snap some shots when i reached home when the rain stopped. I got a nice 40mins to do the photos (yes that's how long I need to take a couple of good shots).. After that, my mom already went home, so I had to continue the photos inside my room as I HATE it when people stare at my photo sessions..

Enjoy the photos :D this is one of my favorite simple outfits (..and maybe yours too)

3.1 Phillip Lim rosette dress, Topshop Military Jacket, black tights, Bottega Venetta bag, Kate Spade tartan bow peep-toes

3
new favorite pose :P
7
another favorite shot.. i always have this happy adrenaline when I see good shots coming out on the computer screen..

I love the expression on the left . I feel like it makes people think..

Left : Phoebe & Chloe rose ring, mood ring I had ages ago, Moselle leaf bangle, M)Phosis Red headband worn as bracelet, Forever21 Black beaded
Right : These were the 1.5size-too-big shoes I was talking on twitter. Ain't they lovely? I loved them so much that I had to buy them even that they're too big for me! I'll find a way to work it out with multiple padding or something :D

1
close up of the bows.. arent they cute ?
2
vintage blurred out acid-washed effect (okay that was ALOT of adjectives..)

I just heard that Canon is coming out with an EOS 550D. I was just about to buy the 500D, but now that this model is being released next month, maybe I'll give it some thought on buying the new model anyway. Why buy old one when new one is coming out right? What do you think?

Speaking of my maroon red dress, my friend Talisha is selling her uber-gorgeous maroon Stella McCartney platform wedges HALF PRICE ! it's still BRAND NEW but the size is wrong. If you're interested, please check out for the details here.

HAVE A VERY MAROON MAULID TO THOSE WHO CELEBRATE !
(honestly i dont know the proper greeting for this holiday.. so happy Maulid was the best one I could come up with..plus everything is this is maroon related, so i decided to add the maroon adjective in it -call me lame if you wan to-..hehehe.. if any of you know the proper greeting please let me know in the comments)

I am so in love with your outfit it's ridiculous! It makes me want to dig out every maroon thing in my closet

Valencia Lia said...

I hate hate bad traffic on the road when I'm rushing to a place and you can literally see the time ticking away.

I take about the same time as you to get my outfit shots taken too. But if someone helps me with it,then I get done in 15mins:)
Maybe you could get a close friend to snap photos for you.

I love love the rose petals design on your dress and the color is so romantic! It's the perfect romantic chic look.

Michelle,you're always fab to at posing! I got to pick up some moves from you ahaha

Stunning accessories and I have a similar rose ring to yours too. And like you know my red wedges I have,its actually too big for me. I'm still trying to figure a way with the multi padding for them to fit better.

And thanks so much for the tips on my hair! I haven't trim them for more than 6months now,oops.

I need to be mentally prepared! heeee

big hugssss to you<3

no prob at all, michelle =D
it's a way to get some inspirations too. not to mention, chictopia is way much better than lookbook for the style people.lookbook is just like photobook (-_-')
about teen vogue, i waited for about a month. and it's no announcing e-mail or something. other blogger let me know that i was featured =D
anyway, i love your dress, jacket, and shoes! in-harmony colors.. so darling <33
and you look so pretty with those new poses =D

Beautiful beautiful dress!

Melmo said...

haha you're so cute. love the dress and the shoes. i have the same problem with some heels. i often wear layers of tights to make them fit. or extra socks.
lovely pictures!

Valencia Lia said...

Re:Ohhh my! Are you kidding me? You get stares for just wearing ankle boots ahahaa that's kinda weird.

But I think you should still wear knee high boots once in awhile.

Yup,that's the only pair of jeans I own! never been a fan of jeans ever since I was like 15years old.

For me,I live in leggings! They are just really good with anything and easy to move around in too.

Graham I. Haynes said...

Hot. Sophisticated. Amazing.
The rose detailing on your dress, along with the jewelry accessories, makes an explosive combination.

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Rain is DEFINITELY great for sleeping and lounging around. But not so great for anything else. ;)

You look amazing in this outfit. For some reason it reminds me of Christmas. Perhaps it is the colour and the adorable bows on the shoes. Nonetheless, you look so fantastic!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

btw, 550D ada fitur videonya juga ya? tadinya gw jg lagi mikir2 mau ganti d500, tapi baca di reviewnya kurang bagus deh. fitur videonya bikin kamera cepet panas jadi gampang rusak, katanya juga jadi suka mati tiba2 gitu. sayang bangettt. mungkin 550 versi lebih sempurna kali ya? hehe

Yes...rain in Jakarta always make me wanna take ZZZZZ :)

Is it true that you always take your pic-snap behind your parents? Hee hee...same as me. I hate it too when my family stare at my photo session. So that's why I did it in my room.

No more to say about your outfit, because it always gorgeous as it used to be. Stay cool, Michelle.
