Sonia Eryka x SallyEmily // Give Love A Second Chance.
13 November 2015

Finally meeting up with these talented sibling / photographer duo, SallyEmily, who recently worked with the Mizuhara sisters! sugoi much. So we hung out in this abandoned playground and take fun pictures.

You may kiss your ex goodbye, but not this precious Kelly! Someone's pre-loved is someone else's treasure. We talked a lot about bags, and this one is definitely my favourite pick from Second Chance. I'm always a fan of classic, everlasting pieces that are versatile, especially when it's in black or brown leather.


My last pick is Celine this pastel blue and brown suede, coordinated with Ninotchka's Curiouser Curiouser mural.

We bonded so quick over coffee, bags, passions, photography, self-love, and the inevitable topics of boys and zodiacs. Turned out we have a lot of things in common, even the similarity of thinking in some ways. I guess it's not only because Gemini and Aries gets along well but these girls are really super sweet in person! We ended up becoming Snapchat besties and we exchange funny sign facts almost every day. :))

11 November 2015

It's the busiest time of the year, well at least for all designers, models, fashion photographers, writers, bloggers, and all fashion-minded people in town, where there are fashion shows every day and good-looking people walking in style crossing outside the venue. So here's some looks I actually love from this year's Jakarta Fashion Week:

Major love on Paul Direk's all-white collection, definitely one Thailand designer I should check out. All the pieces are effortless, quirky and very current. He has the same taste with what Jakartans wear these days so I'd like to say this collection is very wearable.

From my dear friend / designer from Bangkok, Thailand, Thea by Thara's latest collection, mixing modern femininity and classic Victorian era.

Another one from Bangkok, Siam Paragon. Maybe because Bangkok and Jakarta have quite many things in common, their fashion taste is so applicable to wear here.

If I can describe LOTUS' collection in 3 words, it would be playful, child-like, and feminine at the same time. The theme of the runway making it pretty clear: It's a mind of a little girl daydreaming about what she'll be in the future. Working in a chic office wearing pretty clothes. 

A perfect description of what 5 years-old me imagine what a secretary looks like.

Sean and Sheila is well-known for their awesome detailing in embroideries. This time they're taking Dragonflies as the theme of the collection, and stepping up the game by doing detailed gold beadings that looked like constellations. 

This starry dress though.

Last but not least, Patrick Owen's collection which represented by models with faux candy-colored bob wig that reminded me of Edie Sedgwick era. Patrik played around with primer colours, prints, denim, embroideries, making the collection looked super fun and also the preppy x grunge inspired styling is definitely how I would dress myself up everyday.

 Oh, and I walked as muse for my dear friend Aad from Chiel, for his very first show at Jakarta Fashion Week! :)

50th Aigner Anniversary / Fall Winter 2015 Preview
02 November 2015

The warm tones of fall at Aigner F/W 2015 presentation.

Attending Aigner's 50th Anniversary and it's an honour to have Jakarta to host the 2nd party after they held the first one in Munich. Jakarta is also one of a few cities around the world to inspire Aigner for it's limited Cybill Metropolitan bag. The limited Jakarta edition is a croco skin bag with Batik pattern on the side of the bag. Why so special? Aigner first arrived in Indonesia 30 years ago and have gained so many loyal customers that they decided to dedicate one of the bag design specially made for Indonesia's customers.

Green fur dress is all I need.


my current favourite Cybill red.

Another Girl Another Planet
29 October 2015

RIOTOUS top and leather skirt, Aigner bag, Suite Blanco Blazer, Chloe shoes.

bangles, watch and ring by Charriol.


Loving this maroon Aurora (which is Aigner's signature color), the classic design and the fine Italian handmade quality never fail to catch my heart. Paired it with my set of Charriol jewellery, a combination of gold and silver with wire details for a beautiful, classic yet tough-looking design.
