Classic Trenchcoat x Plaid Scarf

November 24, 2016

Winter has finally hit us

It's starting to get super cold in Shanghai. The best thing to do is just to bundle yourself up with a super thick blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and movies to accompany your day. Yet the truth said otherwise. You need to get up very early in the morning, get ready for class and just use the thickest outfit to survive Shanghai's wind. Great thing about winter is, you can be creative with the outfit, keep layering and layering, still look stylish. 

While we were going to the metro, the impressive alley around Tianzifang, and decided to take photos here!! The old street of Tianzifang reminds me of a place near my home back in Jakarta. In this frame, i did not seem to be in China, but its more like European-style alley, don't you think??

Turtleneck is my best friend now, since the wind is crazy, and you don't want to feel like freezing all the time. I just bought the turtleneck from taobao when its 11.11 (for you guys who lives in China knows exactly what i mean) the fabric is quite warm, soft and they have numerous colors. I bought three different colors for the turtleneck. 

As for my trenchcoat, i bought it from Pull&Bear last year and i did not have the chance to wear it until now. That's just my style, buying lots of outfits in hoping to wear it these days, but it ended up piling up in my wardrobe and just discover the things that i never wear the next season. Probably you still can find the similar trenchcoat as this one, just check to the store and explore.. 

I am feeling kind of excited when my scarf arrived! Yeap bought it online from Stradivarius and its like 49 RMB (thank's to 11.11 effect). I'm loving every bit of the color, the pattern and the length on how its just perfect, but the drawback was that the fabric is easy to pill so you need to treat it super careful. This is like my first plaid scarf where i only own just basic plain color. 

Then my favorite accessories nowadays is the silver necklace from Forever21. Love at first sight, i know that i have to own this necklace immediately. The ways it falls perfectly and give the special accents to your plain black shirt is just beautiful. The rest of backpack, and shoes are from taobao. I shopped a lot on 11.11 plus it was my first time shopping from taobao. I realized how easy and dangerous it is to click and then suddenly you have your things arrived the next day. God Bless Me :)

What do you think of the overall looks, guys?? Perhaps you could tell me about your opinion, and wait for the next post inside a super cool and homey cafe in Tianzifang! 

See you next post ;)

BYF Couture

BYF Couture VIP Fashion Show was spectacular

In October 22, i was honored to attend the BYF Couture VIP Fashion Show, thanks to my lecturer, Diana Derval for the free ticket. She personally asked me to be her representative in the show since she could not be there and i was beyond excitement to come to the show. The show took place at a very decent place called the Gallery, Hongkou District. Interior of the place looks massive and very asthetic. It starts at 8 pm with the free flow snacks, cakes, wines, champagne and some other cuisines, free consulation for accesories and perfume booth, then continued with the fashion show at 9 pm sharp. 

When i got the invitation, the dresscode was all about evening dress. At that time i was like "Nooo, i don't have any" , so that i rushed to shops trying to find the evening dress that suits me, but unfortunately there were not exactly what i would like. Did not have much choice, i picked this green dress from Monki, and decided to pair it up with my Forever21 black mullet, white blazer and also being my coat at that time. Plus, a green fury clutch with a cute keychain if you could notice ;).

Simon, who was the mastermind behind all these beautiful and gorgeous collection was welcoming all the guests, as he stood in front of the main door to take photos with each of us. He was super friendly, nice and really helpful! All of the collection were evening gown-inspired, using a lot of satin, laces, velvet and the show was called Casta Diva. I just can't wait to tell you that my favorite piece was the red sparkling dress! It falls perfectly beautiful and i have a thing with low cuts back. Overall, the sillhouettes were amazing, the details, the make up, the sleek up do hair, and not to mention other aspects.

Well, i guess with no further explanation, let's just get straight to the photos, shall we???

Yeap, my favorite!

Keeping It Formal

November 3, 2016

What starts in Beijing, ends in 北京。

It is kind of unbelievable for me as well, when i just came back from Beijing on the 7th of October, and end up being here again on the 27th. Just in a matter of three weeks, i am already in Beijing. Why twice a month? Because this time i was the representative for Shanghai to attend a half year meeting in Beijing, by the Indonesian Student Association. It was a sudden call, 5 hours to go there by train, and once i stepped out from the train, i could feel the wind attacked me. However, its great to be back!! Now that i can visit other places that i did not get to visit last time :p.

You all must be wondering why i did not wear my jacket when it was 8 degrees at that time i took the photos? Because i tried, to show, my outfit. hahaha yes it is the uniform outfit for PERMIT Shanghai 2016/2017. Since every year there will be different uniform, but i love this uniform too much! The batik pattern and colors are just perfect, mostly because i adore these kind of dark blue a lot.  So please bear with me and my closet when you see a lots of blue. 

I was really trying to minimize my luggage, because i was here for a business trip, sort of. And not for holiday like i did last time, so bringing all the formal outfit, pants, and proper shoes would be best for this kind of situation. Yet, my luggage was almost full thanks to my coat, sweaters, shoes, notebook, and laptop. 

Currently, my to-go fall item is this over knee black suede boots. Actually, i got this quite long ago, but then it still look nice and super comfy, despite no heels attached. The over knee black suede boots is so practical, that you could pair it up with anything and for this look i am pairing it up with white pants that i got from zara. The pants is quite thin, to be honest, but i did not feel cold at all that time. Maybe because of they always provide us with a lot of food and snacks, that i could not resist not to eat. 

As what i always do with my hair, i curled it yesterday and leave my hair, then it stays like this the next day. It is pretty convenient so that you don't need to curl it twice, yet thats the thing with bleached hair, you need to maintain it super carefully. The thing is, i would really love to color my hair again, but should i go pink again, or purple??

By the way,
