Top & pencil skirt by RIOTOUS
shoes by Maison Margiela
Hey all! It's been a pretty long time since the last post, I just went back from Japan. So many things to do, and I've been working on my newest collection for my line RIOTOUS and this post is the first sneak peek. So excited!
The first look is a transparent top with accent in the front, cowl neckline and bow in the back, and a midi pencil satin skirt with a slimming silhouette. Please do follow the instagram @RIOTOUSthelabel for latest update on the collection :)
I have so many things to be updated, especially I have to tell you that I'm in loooove with my new camera, Samsung NX 3000, the one I use for this whole post. It's a light mirrorless camera with a good quality for blogging. Will share you more review on this camera, meanwhile you can see the result on this blog and my instagram!
The last thing and the most dramatic change I got this week is my new haircut :) It's been so long since I had a short haircut, and not only I changed my hairstyle, I also have a new routine. Last week when I cut my hair at the salon, the hairdresser told me that my hair is so dry because of the coloring, bleaching and all the styling I did to my hair. I never really took a good care of my hair (guilty as charge), I barely have time to do hair mask at home, yet I style it with straightening and curling iron almost all the time to 'tame' my frizzy hair. But 'tidy' looking hair is not enough if it's not healthy. It's not going to stay tame for long, and it comes back to being frizzy and dry... The key is to take care of it and keeping it healthy before it's damaged! So the hairdresser asked me to start a new routine as simple as using conditioner every time I wash my hair, for a healthier, shinier, and of course a better-looking hair. So I got myself this Pantene Total Damage Care 10 shampoo & conditioner to moisturize my dry hair, and smooth the outer layer of hair cuticle, giving it a shiny and healthy look, and preventing it from breakage and split ends. And it's true, my hair is so much more manageable now and it looks so much healthier :) Yeay to a fresh start!
Foxy Faux Bob
04 February 2015
I'm seriously in love with this Karen Millen midi dress. It's a sweater, it's a dress, it has turtleneck, it's midi, with flattering silhouette, definitely all of my favourite things combined to an outfit! This is what I wear when I feel like wearing a sweater without looking bulky and lousy. Comfy and neat at the same time.
And my new faux bob hair (we've all done this at some point in our life) or in 2015 we call it 'turtleneck hair' is trending this season. :D
D-I-Y Flower headpiece, Karen Millen white shirt & leather pleats skirt, Balenciaga heels
Loving this structured white shirt from Karen Millen, and also the neat leather pleats skirt is so me! Anyway, I'm flying to Tokyo, Japan tonight for vacation and a little bit of pre-wedding preps and photoshoot. Yaaay! Back to one of my favourite place on earth again, and planning to spend Valentine's Day there. I'm so excited for snowy February!
Closer look on my new dinosaurs necklaces! :D
Breaking The Rules
26 January 2015
Wearing Suite Blanco x Irina Shayk's super pretty sparkly sequin top. I'm feeling like a mermaid! I might be breaking the rule wearing sequin and leather together… I mix it with all the dark colours, also my dark Limecrime lipstick so it doesn't look over the top.

You're Never Fully Dressed Up Without Your Smile
24 January 2015
wearing Karen Millen dress for today's event.
As I entered the Cloud Lounge, The Plaza, I was greeted with a small card with a fashion quote on it. Close-up invited me, Harumi PS from mytipscantik.com, Ayla Dimitri from Style.com Indonesia, and Diera Bachier, one of Indonesia's most famous fashion photographer, and together with fashion & beauty bloggers to share about blogging, make-up, fashion, and photography tips to boost our day & night appearance. (If you're a blogger too and you want to get invited to my next events / gathering, please do drop me email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject "Contact me", I will be glad to notify you by email!)
Amazing view from 54th floor, while the event was about to start.
This event is also an exclusive preview of Close-Up's newest line of toothpaste, collaborating with cosmetic dentistry to create a one-time use instant whitening. Consultation session with celebrities' favourite cosmetic dentist, Drg. Hilly Gayatri, she explained the facts and correlation between white teeth and beauty. Some facts I just discover, whiter teeth makes you look 5 years younger, 20% more attractive, and it even increases the the percentage of getting a job and being employed (It's pretty surprising how your bad teeth can easily ruin your social life.) She also explained the procedures of teeth whitening, which ones are the safe one and which one aren't. However, Close-Up's newest invention is the Blue Light Technology, which is using blue light illusion with their blue paste & foam, it makes your teeth instantly look brighter after using, with no bleaching or other dangerous method. Hurray!
Drg. Hilly showed us a simple example of how the toothpaste work. She put a pearl necklace in coffee, in other glass she diluted the toothpaste and hot water, then inserted half part of the coffee-stained pearl necklace and wait for approximately 1-2 minutes.
The pearl necklace went back to its real white color!
Now it's the bloggers turn to take the stage. Harumi showed the technique of getting whiter teeth illusion with just bronzer and red lipstick with blue undertone. I also shared jewellery mix and match tips, how to wear necklace and earrings to match with your outfit yet not over shine your whole appearance. Continued by Ayla's tips to pose and smile, and Diera Bachier's photography tips. Over all, it was one productive night with lots of new knowledge shared!
The lucky girl that night was Thalia, to get the experimental make-over by us after the talkshow!
Look at that sparkly confident smile!
Thanks to my best gals Anastasia Siantar & Clara Devi for coming tonight, here are our mitchy-matchy white outfits! :D Went home with a box of Close Up Diamond Attraction (look at that fabulous packaging design which is unusual for toothpaste! Definitely created for stylish women.) Can't wait to try it myself! Xx
Made My Day

My styling collaboration with Nurulita as the photographer and Husein Yunior as M.U.A, contributing for Bazaar Magazine, Fashion & Food Festival 2015 January edition. The theme is Indonesia, with a touch of red. Go get yourself a copy! :)
Indonesia's postage stamps with my work on it! Such an honour. :D
Exploring unusual hangout places impulsively last week. A friend of mine which also a wonderful siblings, Audrey and Gamal, took me to this place, some kind of unique gift shop, called Alska (it means 'Love' in Swedish). They sell various knick-knacks from jewellery to furnitures and rugs, from all around the world. Then we went to visit Doubledeer to look for some vinyl players. I enjoyed spending time exploring small, lonesome places so it was definitely my version of a wonderful day.
