Unfold

Topshop long sleeve t-shirt, Zara culottes, Womb vest, Aesthetic Pleasure slides and pouch

I know I haven't been on top of my game with blogging, and it saddens me to see my blog being neglected. But it's just that I am very overwhelmed with my essays. The end of the first semester is just around the corner and I am rushing to complete things fast so that I can go back to Jakarta as soon as possible and get on with my planned vacation to Hong Kong. When I'm taking a break off my assignments, all I wanted to do was to eat, read a book, practice calligraphy or go shopping alone. Blogging and shooting totally slipped my mind, but I do miss penning down my thoughts here. 

I may look like a ninja in this get-up but I love this vest by a Singapore-based label Womb! If you haven't heard already, I had the worst incident of lost luggage during my flight back to Jakarta a month ago for Jakarta Fashion Week. This vest was one of the few pieces I planned to wear during the week, and along with several other fashion favorites, they were all flown to Bangkok due to wrong luggage tagging. I was desperately heartbroken because I couldn't get over the emotional attachment with all my belongings. I kept contacting the airline and all they could say was they were still tracking my luggage, and even until 2 weeks they still couldn't find it. I was on the verge of letting go of it when out of curiosity, my mom told me to check with the lost and found department in Singapore and I eventually found my luggage randomly in a bunch of other unclaimed luggages. Rejoice! But I won't fly with that airline ever again.

Laidback


Shopatvelvet marble top, Zara blazer and pants, Van Vogue sandals

Despite not being into graphic prints lately, I have been meaning to find the perfect marble print of something or other and it finally materialized in the shape of this top. My pickiness caused my perfect marble print mission an utter failure, but thanks to Shopatvelvet, the find is finally over. What I love about this particular piece is that the print is not too over the top and is simple enough to make a statement with, instantly giving your outfit a subtly luxurious vibe. The scandinavian minimalist in me just. can't.

I have always been an advocate of the lazy, laid-back approach of tailored wear. I am talking about dressing down classic cut blazers with t-shirts and lazy pants, which is exactly why my obsession for wide-legged pants is escalating at a frightening pace. But that's okay because the retailers I frequent to are currently flushing out all these pieces to satisfy my sartorial cravings. The problem with me and wide-legged pants though, I can't seem to get the size that fits my Asian body perfectly. As you may have witnessed the major disaster in my previous post, all the wide-legged pants in the market seem to be 50cm longer than my body height. But thanks to the emergence of culottes, all my fashion dilemmas are solved! You can probably tell how obsessed I am with them if you look back to my previous posts.
