Oriental Retro Gal

Hello, everyone!
Welcome to my second post of February~
First of all I'd like to say Happy 'late' Valentine's Day and Happy Chinese New Year for those who celebrate, like me !

How was yesterday, the most lovable day, Valentine? Did you got interesting and sweet day? Because me, I got my sweet stories on this year's Valentine, different from the previous Valentine Days, lol.

Thanks for the one who always tried to make me smile, and never stopped showing the love, and finally someone said to me, yesterday, he asked me to go out with him. Damn, why was he so sweet, but I haven't gave him the answer yet, I need to meet him directly, in person, and eye to eye to give the answer :p

Enough with that love love love stories of me, let's move to my outfit details in this post. I chose red, as the symbol of Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year Moment too, so in this post I'm wearing red-themed outfit, with "oriental" touch. And because my outfit got some 'retro' vibes too, let's called it 'Oriental Retro Gal' <3

The retro touch about this outfit is from my high-waisted denim pants and big buckle belt that became one of my favorit fashion combination now. And added oriental touch to this outfit with Chinese floral printed cap by H&M, then red tassel earrings.

Finally got the chance to wear this gold-heeled strappy heels that I bought online at @mintandmauve Instagram) one year ago, didn't expect that this heels could match with my outfit theme~

Anyway, since last Saturday, I got sick, 'Singapore Flu', so my hand and foot palms were full with red dots which looked similar with Chicken Pox disease, but it's not, and my throat was sore and I was so hard to swallow foods, my body temperature were high too on the first time and I felt so exhausted and tired, like I got no energy at all.

Even though I got many jobs to be done in the office, and this week I should be in charge of magazine photo shoot styling, but due to my sickness, I couldn't got a chance to finish my works, then I had to be replaced by my friend :( I feel so sad because I suddenly got sick, and it was like, breaking all of my concepts, works that I've done since the beginning :(

But I couldn't do anything, I got no plan to be sick at all, but maybe God told me that I was working on myself too hard, and I had to get some break.

Past Lessons

Hello, the month of Love~
It's February already, a month passed already in 2018. How was your first month in this year?
I passed mine well along with my internship work at Gadis Magz Femina Group at Jakarta since the 2nd week of January. Currently enjoying my jobs there as a contributor in Fashion and Beauty Directory, and soon-to-be a Stylist!

Can not wait for another challenge as a fashion and beauty 'real' worker. Thanks to God, after waiting for around 2 months and applied to more than 10 companies, He sent me there, Gadis Magz that matched my passion, fashion and beauty world.

Gadis also sent me to the 'field', I mean any fashion and beauty events to collect informations and updates for content-making matters related to the brand/ events. I had my first experience as a 'journalist' in my life with Gadis, and so happy I met many new people with many experiences in media world.


In this post I'm wearing 'green-themed' outfit, a street style look yet still feminine with assymetric skirt that I got from Avenue Clothing, a Green denim outer from @florence.attire on instagram , vintage rebel tee from Stradivarius, Studded bag a gift from my 2nd brother who took all of these photos too, and completing my look with my favorite June and Julia Black Heels and Clear Green Glasses from friend~

I'm always preferring skirt rather than pants, because with skirt I could move my body freely and easier hehehe, but not a midi skirt like many posts before, I decided to wear this assymetric plaid skirt with wrapped details.

Me and my brother went to Moment Coffee and Space, one of a new coffee shop in Semarang, one of my favorite coffee shop too. The place is quite small for the indoor area, but it's still cozy and comfortable to enjoy your time with coffee and friends, the good thing is the price is quite affordable, and the food isn't bad, I'd like to recommend the Fish and Chips or Pizza Baguete there. For the outdoor area is wider and a right place for you who smoke, the outdoor area is full with greens too, so you could feel fresher there~

Anyway, in this post like I mentioned already in my Insta's photo several days ago, I'd like to share something to all of you, so let's call this a sharing session, lol.
Don't mean to scold you or anything, I just wanna share what've been happened to me in the past and now I regret it so much, and that made me feel harder to move forward for my life.

Some mistakes I made in the past told me now, for examples about my love stories that ended in the past, some 'young-mistakes' I've made, and many more mistakes and regrets in the past. The 'now' me think that I was so stupid and careless back then. Maybe because I'm a NAIVE person, so in the past, I easily got fooled, stabbed, and hurt by some people.

I was so emotional and selfish, I said that it was for together goods, but actually the decisions I've made in the past killed my little by little, because I didn't think twice, I didn't think about myself, my heart, I just thought TOO MUCH about others in the past, that made me forget my own self.

That's one of a thing of my regrets, I GOT TRAUMA, but even I know it's already too late too regret, because it's already happened, so for now, I only have to learn some lessons from those mistakes and bad experiences that broke me so much in the past.

I have to deal with the risks I've got from my careless and selfish decisions in the past, I have to be stronger, I have to be a braver person, I have to 'care' to myself more and try to reach my happiness, not from the others, or boys, but from my own self.


But I have to move forward and be maturer, more careful to choose and decide some things. I won't let myself being fooled or broke anymore, I've to heal my trauma from the past, and Thank God, dunno He's always just surprised me, lol with His plans.

Someone's come to my life, actually don't really know what is his motive to come to my life, a man, yeah I talked about another man, lol.

Dunno, just I don't know how to explain this, I guarded myself to prevent myself from bad things that could happened again to me like the past. But He's just.... HOW TO EXPLAIN THIS FEELING. I'M CONFUSED!

He is currently trying to 'break down' my 'walls', till now, and maybe he's reading this post currently ///
I'm happy he looks kind, caring, a gentleman, and he looks really-really 'genuine', currently till now I'm admiring his attemps and works for me, but still, it's so hard for me to believe somebody now, BUT I'M TRYING TO, and I tried to be really careful this time.

Actually, I fell for him and I feel comfortable around him, I feel happier too with him, he is SO MUCH different (in a positive way) from those in the past, hopefully He isn't faking it in front of me hmmm.

Maybe I need to see more 'hard works' from him to myself, so I could regain my believe to men? lol. Sounds like cliche, but that is the only thing to do, right, girls?

Well, he said he'll visit me at Jakarta this month, but we'll see *smirking* !
Guess that I'll have a lonely valentine this year because he can't be here with me at Valentine's day.


Well, that's all,a long one XD,
dunno what to write anymore here, but thanks a bunch for you who read and pay attention to me and my updates. Hope that you'll always support me, because I will be nothing without all of you, friends!

Work it Out, Baby

Welcome to my second post in 2018~
So, how was your first 2 weeks in January? Mine went quiet well since I already accepted as an intern in Gadis Magazine (Femina Group) at Jakarta. So I'll be working there till the last March, and I moved to Jakarta temporarily due to my internship work. And I'm really excited to have a great experiences as a 'real' stylist and content maker at Gadis Magz. Wish that I would do and finish all my works there well!

I'm not that sad anymore, like in the previous post. I realized, I have to cheer up myself and stand-up once again to live my life, there are still many people around me who love and care about me. So it's not good for me and my life if I always stuck in my past. Even sometimes, but not often, I remembered my bad moments in the past, but it's okay, I'll go through all of this!
Time will heal me :)

Golden 2018 Challenge + Self Resolution

Yay, Happy New Year 2018 and Happy Holiday, babes! So happy another year has passed with many sweet, sour, even bitter memories in 2017. A hectic semester with many harder tasks and tests, struggling and fighting for myself as a fashion beauty blogger and influencer, then another fall in love and one more broken heart one week before Christmas 2017, I'm trying to be strong and move on, the past is in the past, right? I have to learn from past's experiences, right...
Even I'm literally broken, had to let go someone I love the most, when it's the time to let him go, because you have to stop caring and loving someone who doesn't care and deserve you, or you'll be hurt... like me :)

and Thanks to all of ur supports and love for me till now, I could keep writing and making content, still need your supports as always!

To open a festive 2018, choose a gold-themed outfit, hopefully that this year could be brighter, sparkling and 'shiny' more than 2017. Thanks for my friends who took all of the photos, they are @wakhidddd , @octavianusimm and @donnyhogi18, without them, this post wouldn't be posted haha! 

Like my usual favorite style, currently I'm in love with midi skirts hihi, and I got my gold tulle skirt for $11 only but the quality is good, and it looks sweet, and elegant in the same way. And one more interesting fact about this outfit post, I dared myself to dress myself with items that only cost $60 from head to toe!
So when I was in Jakarta, I decided to go to Mangga Dua to shop some items for this outfit, even I didn't get my slip on at Mangga Dua, it was bought online only for $16  at @lasenoraboutique on instagram!

Scroll down for more~

Well, I got a one set black top with shiny nude-gold camisole as outer for $15, and the midi skirt like I told u above just for $11, and that cute yellow sling bag is Only For $10 thank God I found many cute things there with affordable prices as I challenged my self !

Oh, almost forgot my glasses, I got it around 1 year ago, from on instagram, it's affordable too, around $10 , this glasses is one of my fav accessories hihi!

I will make the summary of my outfit items,
- Glasses from on instagram
- One set black top + camisole from Mangga Dua ITC
- Midi skirt from Mangga Dua ITC
- Yellow Sling bag from Mangga Dua ITC
- Slip on from @lasenoraboutique on instagram

So I passed my self-challenge, yayyyy!

Last, but not least, let's slay 2018 more! Make the past as the lesson for yourself to be a better person and a better human-being, this year, I wanna work harder for my school, don't want to waste my time anymore since I entered the senior year of college, omg, let's do the best to achieve to best! I wanna work hard too for my dreams, especially in the fashion and beauty world, even I know there will be many obstacles in front of me after this, since I'm the only one who support myself :') I'll do my best for all of you! I want to inspire ppl with myself, once again thanks for all the supports!

This 2018, I wanna be serious too about relationship, I'm tired of getting hurt, I'm tired of being played, I'm already 20, so I guess I have to start to think about my future with my -soon- half hahaha who ever you are out there!
And, for my ex, that we just broke up one week before X-Mas,
thanks for all those memories, and love, yeah I dunno was it love or only as your companion all this time. I'm sorry, I'm tired and enough with this 'grey' relationship, didn't mean that I do not love you, I DO LOVE YOU SO MUCH,
but I can't stand yourself and our relationship anymore, I got really really hurt.
So, goodbye, thank you Mr. G ...
It's true, you may love someone, but you can't push him or her to be in ur life forever :) 
Sorry I'm sad :(

I guess that's all for this post, Happy New Year everyone, hope that our 2018's resolutions can be fulfilled ! Have a blessed year!
