September's Picks

This month's dashing celebrities!
These fine-looking ladies are keeping it light and simple.

Clémence Poésy pulling a black and white look

Lo looking lovely in a lavender dress

Alexa Chung goes preppy with a light apricot colored cardigan

The Fashion Guru strikes a pose in a see-through dress

Emma Watson dons a black piped sheer
Christopher Kane sheath dress

Okay, this one is no celebrity :P
I tried on this magnificent dress just for fun.

I am so liking these soft pastel hues and I find it very fitting and flattering when a woman wants to show off more of her feminine side. Plus you can wear these colors any time of the day and at all sorts of events, be it a casual gathering, a cocktail party, a satuday night out with your friends, and so on. My favorite is a cross between light beige and creme. Oh and also soft peach!

Fashion Muse: Ade Constantia

I know I've told you that I'll be posting another fashion muse in a month or two, but I really felt like writing this post right now. Plus, Ade just replied my message (I asked her if I could use her photos or not) and she said yes so yeaay!

Unlike the post I've written on Mesty Ariotedjo, unfortunately I don't have the full details of Ade Constantia's background. I do know that she is currently studying at the London College of Fashion and that she has the most AMAZING taste in clothes and styling!

Note: The people I have chosen for the Fashion Muse article are all Indonesian :-)

the lemon chiffon bolero is to die for!

Colorful kimono for summertime

Top Notch

i am in love with her wool top (and also the fur vest in the middle)

Truly inimitable and inspirational

The hat reminded me of Robin Hood's

it all boils down to how you wear your clothes
and Ade here is a savvy at that

Oh how I'd love to take a look at her closet! She always and i mean always looks ravishing! I've admired her style since I first discovered her on facebook :) She was also featured in Yvan Rodic's blog ( a couple of times (three times if i'm not mistaken). So, are you a fan now?

Fashion Muse: Mesty Ariotedjo

Have you ever looked at someone and thought 'Oh wow, she is flawless and perfect in every way!' and how you secretly wish you could be more like that person? You sort of see that person as your icon, a person you look up to. Inspired by that, an idea came across my mind and I decided to make a post on inspiring women! Not just any women, but those who really are worth your attention because of their beauty, grace and of course great sense of style. The first person I immediately thought of was Jakarta's Socialite, Mesty Ariotedjo.

The young beauty is a university student at The University of Indonesia, majoring in Medicines. Coming from a wealthy family background and being surrounded by other socialites doesn't make her boastful, in fact she is very down-to-earth and friendly. In her spare time, Mesty is a working model and also a spokesperson for Clinique Suisse Indonesia. You can also see her playing harp for Atas Nama Rakyat at TV1. Besides harp, she also plays violin, saxophone, flute and guitar. I know, WOW! It's clear to me that music plays an important role in her life.

Not only is she intelligent, talented, gorgeous and modest, she's also highly fashionable. She admitted that it was her mother (Arti Ariotedjo) who encouraged her to dress up and often helped her pick out her clothes, shoes, bags and accessorizes. Great job tante :-D

Mesty and her mom. Both are exceptionally stunning!

In conclusion, Mesty is ...
very classy!
She is officially my role model, no doubt about that.

P.S. I had fun writing this article! Oh and I did ask Mesty's permission first before I used her photos and she was so nice about it :) Thanks Mesty! I'll be featuring the next fashion muse, probably in a month or two (depending on the number of assignments I have, yikes!). See you til then!

Have you met my mom and sister?

I've wanted to write a piece of article on my dear mother and my older sister since a long time ago but I keep forgetting to. My parents currently live in Germany and as I've told you in my previous post, my sister is visiting them. So I wanted to share with you all a couple of my favorite photos of them in europe.

That salmon pink color is so eye catching

Mom in Vienna

I've always loved how she puts together an outfit. Simply marvelous!

This is my favorite!! Now you see where I got my interest in fashion from right? hehe..

Have I told you my sister is a shopaholic? Yes well she has a huge fascination in clothes as much as I do ;) I simply love her choice of wardrobes and how she mixes it up. See it for yourself!

Keeping it casual for grocery shopping

You can feel summer just by looking at the dress <3>
the dress, the cardigan and the scarf say it all!

Perfect view of Hamburg

Boy am I relieved I've finally posted this article! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I guess that is all for now!

Eyeing Erin Fetherston & Luella's colorful dresses

I have always adored Erin Fetherston from the first time I discovered her collections. The soft pastel colors and the very sophisticated yet young designs truly are ravishing. Everything looks so divine you don't know which one is your favorite!

this flow-y soft lilac tutu is my personal favorite

Look how cute the dresses are! Plus the models are all wearing flats, which i love so much!

I can't decide which of these dresses is my most desired!

Erin herself always managed to look flawless. What a beauty..

with Chanel Iman. I love the color of Erin's dress.

Luella is another amazing find! Hmm how do I describe her collections? Well it's definitely merrier and candy-colored. It looks so sweet you just want to bite it! lol, how cheesy did that sound? Here's a look at what she's done:

Luella Spring Summer 09 Collection
I noticed that she loves frills and layers in her designs

The genius behind it all

Yes so those are a few peeks of two of my current favorite female designers. Stay tuned for more!

Bye-bye for now, but i'll see you in about 3 months!

So my sister finally took off to Hamburg, after longing to go there since forever hehe.. She definitely deserved it and from what she told me I think she's having lots of fun there. I really miss her and my folks, but I've got amazing friends here so that makes up for my loneliness :). Anywaay, my sister promised to bring back a lot of clothes and accessories when she returns. So yeaay, can't wait!

My sister and I at the airport
