Currently Loving...

How's everybody doing? Good I hope. I had a good sleep last night and woke up pretty early this morning. I have to go to my friend's dorm today but it's not until afternoon so I can chillax a bit.

Since i haven't visited the blogs from my blog list, I thought 'd check it out. I can't believe how left out I am when I saw some blogs I used to check regularly. Like for instance http://stylebubble.typepad.com/, http://www.altamiranyc.blogspot.com/, http://sleepyfawn.blogspot.com/ and a lot more. I used to check those blogs almost everyday so it's kind of surprising to me how I never bothered to visit them again. Oh but i still check the sartorialist, jak and jil, sea of shoes, fashion bits and bobs, garance dore, etc. That's where I get the sources for my blog.

So anyway, today I thought of writing a post about random things I'm pretty crazy about. So no more talking, feast your eyes with these awesome photos I got from various blogs.

Cream Colored Bow paired with an amazing capeSummer Sandals
Blue highlighted hair
Animal prints ballet flats
Louis Vuitton candy color bags
Draw-it-yourself tattoo
I love the idea of dressing up like a boy, i wish i had the guts
to wear clothes like this.

Collection on the Spot: Stella McCartney

To tell you the truth, I never really paid much attention to Stella McCartney's previous collections. I only saw the pieces in magazines, websites and blogs but that was it, I can't say I'm in love. But when I saw photos of her 2010 resort collection in http://www.garancedore.fr/en/ and http://www.hanneli.com/, I knew I couldn't resist from featuring her collection in my blog.

Love the rose pink top on the far left
The collection had such cute and feminine cuts and a beautiful
color palette in all shades of nude pinks.
"Perfect view of my dress"
Pay attention to the volume
What struck me most from these clothes are how each of them had such sweet
and sleek effects to the wearer
and how the girly colors reminded us of the summertime

Fashion Muse: Gloria Agatha

Readers, I present to you another young and talented Indonesian designer, Gloria Agatha. The Lasalle graduate who is now continuing her studies in Sydney has always had a huge interest in fashion and designs. Her clothing line, Jii officially started in 2008 and is still going on until now. Her recent debut for the Spring/Summer Collection are simple, easy to wear, and edgy. The collection which was inspired by iconic American aviator pioneer Amelia Earheart, is mostly dominated by neutral colors like brown, creme and white and the models were accessorized with aviator hats, scarves and gold accessories.
I like how she combined femininity with a touch of masculinity that represents tough and independent women. Even though she's still young, I think she's ready to compete with other young Indonesian designers. Bravo to Gloria for doing such a great job!

Edgy Gloria
