Olivia Palermo by Patrick McMullan

Olivia Palermo graces the March 2016 cover of Canada’s FASHION Magazine. Inside the editorial, I came across this beautiful ruffle top in salmon color, which is from Greta Constantine. I seriously think this photo should've made the cover instead. Anyway, I haven't got a copy of the magazine myself, but according to fashiongonerouge, in her interview, she talks about her new Chelsea28 clothing line, people who haven’t found their style and social media influence.

Talking about how she dresses herself, Olivia says, “I have no anxiety in the morning when I’m choosing an outfit to wear. Whether I was in this industry or not, it wouldn’t change. My focus is getting a pulled-together look. That’s all that matters. I dress for myself. Everyone should.”

Live on air: Hard Rock FM 89.7

Yesterday was my first time ever to appear on live radio show. I didn't really announce this beforehand because I'm so embarrassed if it turns out to be a disaster. But the good news is... it was completely okay. Not saying I was great but I had a great laugh and it was a fun experience.

I was scheduled to be a guest on "Good Morning Hard Rockers", which goes live at 6-10 am on weekdays, hosted by Indra Pramujito and Agustian Pratama. I listened to this show a lot while I was in high school on my way to school daily and I can't believe I appear on the exact same show a couple years later.

Amal Clooney in Giambattista Valli

Amal Clooney is the closest thing to a demigod. I love, and maybe everyone else, love love love her everything from her charisma to her fashion sense to her being a successful lawyer. She is back on the red carpet and once again in Giambattista Valli couture with her husband George Clooney. I was a total fan of the other Valli dress she wore on her wedding bash, but this one is equally gorgeous.

Honestly, part of me thinks that this dress isn't really suitable for her, as it is too flirty and playful. I read a couple reviews online as well and found that some editors think this look is a little too "young" for her. Perhaps I will prefer a cleaner, more versatile look from Calvin Klein or Dior by Raf, but I die a little every single time I see dresses from Giambattista Valli couture 2014 collection.

In transit: Stella McCartney Binx

 photo JTUnaII_zpscpzpcjnt.jpg

This is such a weird title and shoe choice for a girl who puts up "I can't wear flats, I always feel like I'm walking uphill" on her Instagram bio. But I can't help to share my latest and one of a kind shoe choice: The Stella McCartney platform sneakers "Binx" (click here to see the python version which I settled on).

Anyway, here's the story behind it. I've been planning a trip with a bunch of girlfriends and we are going late February. We're going to Hong Kong for a week. My last winter holiday was two years ago and I wore wedge sneakers all the way because they were huge and trendy. But I didn't really took a good care of them and since they are suede, they look so bad right now and I can't wear them.

So I had to face the truth: I can't be in 12cm Louboutins from day to night of endless walking, and I can't wear flats. I can't wear flip flops because of course I can't. I wanted to buy a pair of boots, but then I wouldn't be able to wear it back in Indonesia or Singapore. I searched for a more wearable option, with a little extra height. I was contemplating between the Binx (US$427) and Elyse (US$1,080), because they give a little more lift compared to Chanel espadrilles. Obviously the latter is twice the price and way more daring.

However, the situation is that I'm stuck in my little hometown Surabaya where there is no On Pedder or any Stella McCartney boutique which I can visit and try them on. In the end, I decided to get the Binx because they are mm-hmm.. cheaper, and I guess, more versatile and classic for my first pair of sneakers that also happens to be platform flats or however you want to call it. I'm just so anxious right now. After all these years of loathing the 'flatforms' I had to fearlessly wear them in the next 3 weeks. What if they don't fit me at all???

And just like that, I came across these street style photos of how to wear them. I mean, look at them. These girls look absolutely chic wearing all kinds of Fall outfits with their Binx(s). I really can't wait to receive them to start planning my outfit around them. Oh god, I can't believe I'm even typing this right now.

Bali diaries: All-white

 photo L1009887edit_zpsc9hsqfey.jpg

Can you believe it's actually my first time here at one of the island's most sought after restaurant & resorts? I bet you can tell where this is just by looking at these shots. It was cloudy and drizzling for a moment that afternoon so the place was a little quiet unlike the usual.

We ordered appetisers and desserts only as we came right after such a heavy lunch. It wasn't bad at all but totally the view triumphs over the food here. Will I come back for a second visit? Definitely.

Top trends at Golden Globes 2016 red carpet

Happy new year to my readers! Happy mid-January, happy first two weeks of the new year! I apologise for the lack updates once again. Now that I have a full time job at my label, I have less and less time for blogging. My new years resolution is to blog more, to have more insights on fashion and lifestyle, and to create a new voice in the Indonesian-Singapore blogging scene. Let's hope at least I can achieve one goal.

Anyway, I woke up this morning scrolling through images of the Golden Globes red carpet (I might spend about 20-30 minutes top). I always love the awards season! I'm so obsessed with this year's looks on my favourite actresses and these are my top picks grouped into three categories.

1. All-white, all-eyes on you

 photo rs_1024x759-160110181349-Golden_Globes_Trends_0005_white_zpspmlewyxu.jpg

I absolutely love the white trend. Although the textbook theory is that black slims and white fattens, these dresses are everything I want in my future evening dress dream closet. These are so versatile, so modern yet timeless, so much better than black!

2. Golden girls with an extra touch

Part 2, is the gold, beige-ish gold, that looks so surreal. I mean I have always been on the rose-gold side, but I feel that I'm moving slightly to the beige gold side. Ok I might actually just created the term (I don't have time to google). But you girls are following, right?

3. Cape trend

Last but not least, as Harper's Bazaar called it the 'Superhero' trend, here are some "fitted at the top" and "flare at the bottom" with much more drama happening at the back type of dresses. I started feeling this trend and I feel like the public is getting more used to it. These dresses photographs beautifully and they could be a daring option for those of you who are bored of normal mermaid dresses. Although the first impression is that only the tall ones can pull this off, I think I can totally picture myself in one of them looking just fine.

The Claridge’s Christmas Tree has long symbolised the start of the festive season in the capital, drawing visitors and Londoners alike to admire its magnificent design. This marks the first time Claridge’s has had a British designed Christmas Tree. This year’s Claridge’s Christmas Tree is an innovative and modern contrast to the art deco design of the hotel, exploring the concept of light interaction to celebrate the season in the hotel’s iconic lobby.

Drawing inspiration from Burberry’s longstanding heritage of providing protection against the elements, and the brand’s history in pushing digital boundaries through its physical experiences, the motion responsive Christmas Tree features almost 100 umbrellas, each finished in bespoke gold and silver metallic fabric. The tree’s 77,000 individual lights will be triggered as guests walk by the tree, sending thousands of twinkling beams into the hotel’s lobby each time someone interacts with it.

Over 300 guests attended the event in the hotel lobby and staircase surrounding the tree, including Christopher Bailey, Lily James, Matt Smith, Alice Eve, Tracey Emin, Sam Rollinson, Charlotte Wiggins and Raya Aribached.
