L'Oréal Professionnel globally launched their newest hair styling, cutting, and coloring techniques that were inspired by Korean celebrities who tend to have a slim face shape or known as the V-Shape. I was one of the 6 Instagram influencers for L'Oréal Professionnel Indonesia. My hair is transformed into reddish brown color with a V-Look coloring and cutting technique by Stephanie Martina at Glam Hair Culture Salon Surabaya.

Coach Tunjungan Plaza opening

 photo XT1R0189resize_zpsvdlugmmg.jpg

Coach is excited to unveil the company’s next generation retail concept at the Tunjungan Plaza store in Surabaya, Indonesia. I was one of the hosts for the store opening event together with Surabaya based, Christina Brennan and Ivo Ananda. The girls at Coach Jakarta managed to get me the new "Swagger" tote in black. As you can see from the photo, I'm carrying it in small size and Christina is carrying the medium. The bag is very downtown-chic. They introduced it in so many colors and variations and sizes so it's easy to get what you want according to your needs. Plus, you can pair it with almost everything. I chose a more dressy look for the occasion, wearing a fuchsia taffeta dress from my label, Poise24.

The new store design was developed by Coach Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers, in partnership with world renowned creative firm Studio Sofield. Drawing from a wide range of influences, the concept places a premium on contrasting textures and luxe materials.

The 152 square meter retail space is warm and inviting, reflecting the sophisticated yet playful refinement of New York – the city the brand has always called home. Throughout the space is a mix of custom-designed cabinetry fabricated from natural and ebonized ash, blackened steel, antique bronze and mahogany trim. The store interiors consist of iron spot brick pavers, reclaimed heart-pine wood flooring with custom hand-tufted wool carpeting and statement mid-century furniture punctuating the elegant lines and muted colors.

 photo louboutin-bridal-1_1_zpsp21kihgc.jpg

Bridal Fashion Week 2016 saw the launch of Christian Louboutin‘s Bridal collection. Partnering with three designers: Marchesa, Naeem Khan and Jenny Packham, he lacquered red soles of Christian Louboutin took to the runways yet again this spring.

At Marchesa Bridal’s Spring 2016 collection presentation, it was petals upon petals. Flowers, blooms and blossoms were expressed wistfully throughout the collection through intricate threadwork, 3-D fabric petals, floral beading and feather flowers.

Several Christian Louboutin styles introduced in the runway include classics old and new like the So Kate, Pigalle Follies and Decollete 312 in white patent and kid leather, as well as the new Christian Louboutin Dalida in white patent, boasting a new Louboutin signature – the wavy mirage heel.

Jenny Packham’s 2016 Bridal Collection offered soft silhouettes and delicate colours including ivory, aqua and blush, along with textured twists and unexpected embellishments. Pleats, draping, and beading made the back of gowns as memorable as the front, and classic, high and low-heeled Louboutin styles let the dresses take center stage.

Naeem Khan’s bride was a glamorous one. With artistry as the focus, each dress took inspiration from a destination – be it Saint-Tropez or Sorrento. To close the show, the San Francisco bride walked the runway in a memorable ivory satin sequin tuxedo jacket and matching pant, complemented by the glittering, strappy Christian Louboutin Toerless Muse - also seen on the Fall 2016 runway for Khan.

I've been wearing these pants a lot lately. They're from my clothing brand Poise24. This time I paired them with a denim shirt from Cotton On. It's so affordable and I love that it's so thin, perfect for sunny days in Singapore and Indonesia.

CHANEL mini 2015

 photo DSCF3187resize_zpshgejh9kc.jpg

After the Chanel price harmonisation that happened last month, I believe it's time to get one for myself. As a smart shopper, we always face to buy classics and 'what's hot'. I mean, we all want to buy items that we can keep in our wardrobe forever, but sometimes we got to buy something daring and fun and seasonal, because if we don't live in the present and wear what's in trend, then what's the point of fashion?

As a 22 year old, I have been using my own money to shop for designer goods since 4 or 5 years ago. I mostly save up my 'blog' money to buy designer shoes. I have two or three vintage Chanel that have been passed down to me from my grandmother and my mom, and I can really appreciate the Chanel value. However, when it comes to Chanel, it is way more expensive than, let's say the trendy Saint Laurent and Phillip Lim, so there's the gamble. I didn't save up enough to get a Chanel. It was enough only for Balenciaga(s) and Proenza Schouler(s).

My other way of thinking is that, designer fashion means luxury and it means it's not accessible to all. A part of me always want to get somewhat a 'limited' piece that is not massively produced all year long and the next couple of years. A seasonal piece is often more appealing to me than classics. I mean, for example, after owning a classic, although vintage, Chanel black flap with gold chain, I never really want to get a new Chanel flap in black (plus I never care about the hardware color, I'm not the kind that will want a silver chain, when I have the same thing in gold chain). So I have always opt for something else, more like, other trendy look. It's when everyone else already own a Chanel black flap and we've always seen them on the streets (the real deal and the cheap knockoffs altogether). I would feel much more in 'power' when nobody is seen carrying a Céline mini luggage yet, and I already have one in my hand, then I got the jealous stare.

And last week, I gave in. I don't want to spend too much on Chanel because I always lean on Hermès more. Thus, I'll be willing to save up and spend more on Hermès. That's why I think the Chanel mini is the right size for me. It's cute and it's not so small on my petite figure, plus its within my budget. I'm so so so happy because I got this color. This time I wasn't doing research online or anything on the bag, like when I usually decide my next designer shoes. I bought this the very old school in-store shopping way. They offered 5 options and I chose one within 10 minutes and didn't think much. And sometimes it feels as good.

There was a long line at Takashimaya Singapore, I remember it was on a weekday. Almost everyone who walked into the store, came out with something. They really do shop this time.

This is the bag on my sister, Sharon. I'm glad I have a sister to share my stuff with.
