After over two years since I first launched my brand online, with all the blessings from God and endless support from my family and friends, Poise24 finally launched its first brick and mortar store. The store is actually on the first level of our office - let's call it our HQ.
On November 15th we invited our friends and customers to join our little Christmas party which was also a store opening event. Guests preview our Holiday collection and as they shop in store what is already available online. There were over 300 people who came and joined us that day.
My cousin Anastasia Siantar (blogger at Brown Platform) was in town, she hosted the event with me and my sister Sharon, who also came from Bandung to celebrate the launch. Here are some photos of me with my friends. Many thanks for coming and sending me flowers and loves.
The store is actually built for a house, it has a backyard that I could use for our dessert table and display space for Olga x Poise24 collaboration with One Sixty Notepad.
The dessert table was prepared by Precious Moment Decorations with desserts from Sweetville and Mix Bakers (Surabaya based online pastry shops), there were also Macs Eclair that supplied mouth watering eclairs all afternoon. Thirst clencher of the day was Jumble Juice from Nutrilife ID. Thank you so much for all the support once again.
We introduced the exclusive Olga x Poise24 collaboration pieces which includes t-shirts, crop tees and phone cases, our customers loved it and many of them bought multiple pieces just because they can't decide which illustration to buy cause they were all so adorable.
Our humble photo corner space was designed by Precious Moment Decorations with exclusive gold foil balloons with our logo from Party Click party supplies. Photo corner service was sponsored by Memory Lane, which provides an instant-printing service with high quality photo prints and custom designed photo frames.
Finally a group photo with my cousins Livia, Lydia, Anastasia and Cecilia. Followed by other photos of me with guests.
Last but not least. I got my very own flower wall. It could be smaller that Kim Kardashian's but I loved it to death. Thanks Mr AP.

Just last week I had a chance to attend a meet and greet session with Christian Louboutin at his Ngee Ann City boutique in Singapore. The invitation says 6.30 to 8.30pm and I arrived at about 8pm. The store was fully packed, there were mostly elegantly dressed ladies in their mid 30s basically "chasing" Mr Louboutin to have a chat and finally get a photo with him. He has a bodyguard that keeps saying "give him his space" and it seems impossible to get near him. He was friendly, he replies to those ladies, but he didn't do signing this time. Then about 20 minutes later, I could get a quick snap. The image on my phone is blurry.
Thanks to Fashionide.com, I have a clearer shot. To remember. I hope I can meet him again.

Finally back in Singapore for a couple days. This time I received a surprise present from Club21, an Alexander Wang Rocco bag in mesh. I absolutely love everything from the color and the hardware and the cool mesh material.
Although I kept complaining about how heavy the bag was when I bought mine in 2011 (see it here I have the laser cut version in gray), my heart still goes for the shiny rows of studs at the bottom of this one. Even cuter with an MCM bag charm.

Sunny days in Seoul. I was practically melting during my visit to the iconic Gyeongbokgung palace wearing this playful, colorful dress from Peter Pilotto x Target. It is located right in the heart of Seoul, thus it is so convenient for tourists to visit and enjoy the royal palace.
Paired the dress with my all time favorite Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. Anyway, I had my hair colored reddish before my trip to Korea. I absolutely love it, what do you guys think?

It's quite a rare scene of me wearing all red. But one day I decided to wear this out. The playsuit and clutch is from my brand Poise24, paired them with red lips and red manicure and rose gold jewelry.

A while ago in my friend's beautiful Singapore apartment. We took candid photos and chat by the pool all just for fun. Oh and I think my hair and my new Saint Laurent tributes looked pretty great that day.
Meet my friend Cella. She's pretty. She's wearing tie-front playsuit from my store Poise24.

Went to Seoul for a week and I have tons of photos to share! Meanwhile, you guys can go to my Instagram (@silviasiantar) and check my instant photo diary. Since I was in Seoul, I decided to dress up so girly — Katy Perry tutu dress style, just because I can be as eccentric as I can and people won't stare.
Apgujeong in Seoul is where the designer brands are, and of course there is the famous 10 Corso Como, which is super trendy and I absolutely love every little detail, the interiors, the chicest Corso Como cafe, what they sell there, their collabs and most of all, the perfume and candles display and selections.
Dress is from Poise24 upcoming collection, but you are able to pre order now (email email@example.com).
