My sister's party: photo diary
My sister, Sharon, turned seventeen in November and I had a chance to celebrate her birthday earlier this month back in Surabaya.
She looked stunning in this red gown by Jovani.
I got to wear my Versace for H&M dress. So I got the dress in size US2, which happens to be the smallest, but then it was still too big on me. So I got to rush home and get it altered. We didn't have enough time to alter so much, so they added the draping on the side. Sharon's second dress was equally amazing, by my designer friend back in my hometown, Pricilia Salim.
The decor is inspired by the famous Mulberry leopard glitterati.
Oh so here are the very delicate work of art in the form of cupcakes. Yes, there I said it. That's how much I was amazed when I saw these in the sweets corner at the party that night. I'm so proud of my dear cousin, Cecillia Siantar, to have come up with such gorgeous designs. And they were yummy as well. She's just super talented!
Her friends gave her a surprise with lots of roses and wishes. What a pleasant moment to remember.
I happened to 'accidentally' designed my own dress, it's just a very simple blue chiffon maxi with crystals in the collar. Surprisingly, I received a lot of compliments that night. I'm actually in the midst of working on something that has to do with my hobby. They say, "everyone has a talent – and by tapping into what you do best, you could make yourself some extra money." I can't wait to reveal my latest project to all of you.
And with the boys here! Photographed by recordance.
