Whenever I wear this skirt outside, I got quite lots of compliment. I gotta say while pink is not really my colour, I like the skirt. And the sandal. It’s really comfortable to wear. And like you can see, I experimenting with ribbon a bit. Well… I don’t think I look good with one…. Scratch that, I don’t look good with “cute” lolita-ish outfit in general, but I choose white instead of any other colour and sooooo it turned out not so bad. At least for me. However there’s a bit crisis with my hair. When curling it, it turns out my hair still too damp and it can’t hold the curl! I try all my best to re-do the curl with the help from hair mousse. Sometimes it’s a pain in the ass to have a thick hair!

However if you ask whether I’m happy with how the photo turned up, the answer is No. Well not really. I was trying for more playful look, put together a simple black shirt, a casual sandal and the shirt. Try a casual 1950s-ish look. But I guess the make-up and acessories is a wrong move?
sandals : fladeo
skirt : custom handmade
Hoo boy… It’s been 5 months since I didn’t blog anything? Perhaps being unemployment really doing something on my self-motivation. Good thing is I’m not unemployed anymore! I got a job on this comic magazine and I’m working on my probation period for now. Hopefully I can go full-time! Anyway, on the outfit today I’m trying to went full 50’s with the dress, make-up and hair. Here you can take a look on my hair and make-up.
I admit the hair is still messy. I’m not pro with hair rollers and pin curl I guess. But hey, since I start styling my hair at 5 AM and shot this at 7 AM because I have to go to work at 8, I guess I deserve some credits! Can’t wait to purchase the curling iron, though.
and here it is the full outfit. The dress…
I instantly fall in love with the fabric when I visited Pasar Mayestik (a market that particularly sells fabric at Jakarta) and I bought it for 40.000 IDR (about 4 $)/metres and bought the dress design to the seamstress and they work on it. Here’s the close-up of the fabric pattern.
pretty, isn’t it?
Dress : custom made
bracelet and ring : thrifted
shoes : fladeo
so I guess that’s for today and see you later on my next post!
