After the success of our opening event in November, we opened our doors for a new collection preview. The theme was Valentine's, which means red, romantic, sexy. The new collection also arrived just in time for Chinese New Year. So we have several pieces with mandarin collar and embroidery.
This is my friend, Cynthia, she owns Oriflora, a floral boutique in the west of Surabaya. Check out their site www.oriflora.com (@oriflora on Instagram). She sponsored all the fresh flower arrangements in my boutique during the 2 day preview.
If you're not in town and you want to visit our store, make an appointment with my store manager, Gita at +6281235678000 (text or whatsapp is preferred). Anyway check out our latest collection online www.poise24.com.

Some of you may be aware that my beau is a jeweller, and I thought we could do some sort of collaboration of jewellery. We just launched our debut fine jewellery collection of bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces in glimmering 18K rose gold and pavé diamonds in contemporary designs. The collection is sold on my webstore Poise24 (www.poise24.com). You can get our stuff online or in store (by appointment only).
The first collection is called The Papillon, which is the butterfly. My favourite piece is the butterfly earring and ring in rose gold. The ring has 3 sizes (S, M, L with different prices because of the difference in diamond carats for each sizes).
We also have an exclusive collection of snakeskin bracelets, available in 3 colours (dark orange, white and green) all in rose gold with sparkling diamonds. View the complete collection here.

It's the end of 2014! Did this shoot with Deasy of VDS Photography. I am very thankful of the year 2014 which have been pretty amazing. I just turned 22 last week, I remember I started this blog when I was 17 and it means I've been running it for about 5 years!
We wanted a fun, cheeky theme this year so Deasy edited the photos with funny stickers to create a sexy bunny theme. Anyway, also did a beauty shoot wearing this edgy chain-all-over choker which I don't know where to wear but it's so absolutely cool.
Finally, a photo with Malva who has been a really great friend of mine, a super talented makeup artist who started about two years ago and turned herself into a fully-booked with long waiting list clients this year. You guys should check out her IG account where she puts up her work and travel photos @malvava.

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.
