5 ways to stay stylish in winter




How to be stylish during a cold weather? Like HOW!!! Looking at those instagram goddesses' crop tops, long trench coat and their chanel knee high boots ; jumping up and down the street looking all happy and fabulous in europe. It's a skill guys and when i try it it's HARD.  I hate cold, my body couldn't stand it and i feel weak and moody without the sun. It's hard for a girl who lives in a tropical country to maintain her positive aura  and to stay stylish in a cold weather for a long time. But hey, after two weeks surviving Sydney's winter. I finally have my own formula to tackle the cold weather.

1. Bring your turtlenecks : Stay warm and comfy with a black turtlenecks, just mix them right in your wardrobe, you'll look like a Parisian girls. Classy and appropriate for any occasions. I use my heat tech turtle neck from uniqlo, the extra warm one. YES it saved my life and nobody knows but me, layer it with a few stylish clothes and voila!

2. Use bright colors: When the weather is gloomy, brighten up the room by using your colorful outerwear, dresses or scarf. Red, yellow, blush or burnt orange. People will think you really thought your outfit through and you'll elevate your casual look with colors. I only use one color in this outfit, the burnt orange. It's subtle,  suitable for winter or fall, but the color is not easy to forget. Effortlessly chic and i don't even have to try

3. Flaunt it!: Nobody wants to see a walking salad wrap, unless you're in Iceland or it's snowy. If the weather is somewhat bearable but not really. Pick your strongest body part; it could be your arms, back, legs or for me my calves. Show it and flaunt a little skin!

4. Smile: My photographer said after years of photographing people, everybody love to see people smile. It's infectious and i do believe it's the best and cheapest but essential part of the wardrobe.

5. Settings: Okay, this is not for real people who live in the real world... This is for you internet creatures, don't take your pictures in a plain wall. Let the setting help you to tell the story. I know it's not fair cause i have some wonderful friends who scouted this place for me and help me catch the best light and angle. But pick the right place to make you look even more stylish, the ones that'll compliment your instagram tone and outfits.

That's all and please do comment down below if you tried the tips or if you have more tips to share!

SaptoDjojokartiko S/S 2019









I was late(fashionably of course)... YES i was sprinting from the gate with my stilettos like a jumping deer running from the predators for the 10 am show of Mr. Saptodjojokartiko. The fashionable people of Jakarta were there siting and wowing the collection already, celebrating Mr. Sapto's 10 year's anniversary and his first solo show ever. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
The all white and modern architecture gave the sporty & futuristic collection the spotlight it deserves. 70 Spring/Summer looks of both menswear and womenswear were unveiled. The impeccable craftsmanship made the futuristic movement of the brand looked seamless , from the circuit board embroideries to the millennium silver outfits. His identity is still very well attached of course through out the entire collection. Collaborating with Make Over Indonesia , the team paired soft morning looks with the cold palette, modern melancholic outfits, subtle and delicate seduction. The flowy dresses and golden embellishments won everybody's heart including my own.

It was a sweet and serene celebration of his success and i really appreciate how he mastered his crafts by not getting the trends change his brand's entire direction. The master is in control, wisely moving forward through small and delightful additions of his collection; new embellished pouches, wedges and sunglasses were seen this morning. The logo tees and cape really showed how confident and on trend the brand is and we will be proud to wear his name everywhere. Kudos to one of the most well known fashion houses in Indonesia, so proud and happy to see how the brand grows and this too will be a part of the Indonesian heritage just like the newly restored and modern looking venue of Istora Senayan, Jakarta.

I was lucky enough to be one of the attendees who wear Mr. Sapto's design. I opted this pleated dress by Saptodjojokartiko as a part of my Crazy Rich Asians theme of the month. I'm signing out and please do enjoy the dreamy collection above.

Miss Mondial X Dian Sastro Wardoyo








I was invited to attend the store opening of Miss Mondial a couple of days ago in Plaza Indonesia. Jakarta. It’s their 11th store but as the brand grew bigger a change must be needed and this time they’re doing a change for the greater good. Appointing ka Dian Sastro Wardoyo as their first brand ambassador for both Mondial and Miss Mondial is a bold move. Not only she collaborates to create four jewelry sets but the profit of every purchase will help other girls in the other part of Indonesia get a chance to make their dreams come true. Miss mondial is collaborating not only with the style icon but also with her charity organization Yayasan Dian Sastro Wardoyo. Together they’ll help 5 girls to continue their studies and those who buy the diamonds will be their hero too.

The Tournesol, Jardin Carre, Drop of The Sun and Solace; each have their own uniqueness, character and story.  You’ll never know how it feels to wear the precious diamonds until you experience it yourselves.
Eventhough my birthstone is the diamond, I was more into shoes and bags than diamonds until recently the Frank&co group invited me to one of their events and after wearing a few pieces for an hour or two… The spell has been cast and now I’m weak. It’s so pretty, subtle and bold at the same time, it’s timeless for sure and you could wear the same diamond over and over again forever.

You could see from the pictures, I felt like a princess when I wear the Drop of The Sun set. They’re so pretty and well crafted. Easy to wear and it’ll show your most feminine side ever.

It’s not only we who got a chance to wear the full collection during the event. Oh basically it’s a star-studded event full of celebrities and I happened to be there with them all. Ririne Ekawati, Astrid Tiar, Sophia Latjuba, ka Dian Sastro and last but not least your girl right here are the first ones to wear the collection. It’s an honor to stand side by side these inspiring Indonesian women and together we promote not only pieces that could change your life but also the lives of others. Let’s be mindful and may we could purchase with a good purpose always. You could go to their new store or Miss Mondial’s store in Indonesia and purchase the collections, the diamond comes in sizes of course to cater your desire and needs. From the affordable pieces to the extravagant one, each one of them will help the girls to continue their studies. Congratulation once again Miss Mondial and ka dian Sastro. I want to thank ka Zoey too, the PR of the events for his support all this time since I was a 20 years old girl in Milan to this prestigious diamond event. My fondness of you knows no boundaries. So what are you waiting for? Try it and be the hero for once.

something new from NIVEA






NIVEA was unveiling their white radiance & smooth serum last week in Jakarta. I got invited to the luncheon and paperdoll workshop by the one and only ka dinda! Not going to lie i was a little bit competitive with myself of course....

Okay back to the most important topic of the day. I need to admit that i don't like to put sun screen anywhere on my body. I thought i only need it if i go to the beach, swimming or if i have a long outdoor activity during the day. Turns out during the luncheon the dermatologist told us that we need sunscreen even if we're indoor! Especially if you sit near the window, you wanna know why? Cause... turns out the sun has uv A and uv B *wait for it*.... and your window will only "filter" the uv B but not the uv A! That's why even if you're not an outdoor person you could still have the spots or freckles too.

In order to prevent the damage and have a slower aging process( yikes.... that'll be in my top ten scariest words i've ever heard from now on "aging") you need to put on the sun screen two to three times a day, just like your healthy meal plan, you need to feed your skin too and protect your largest organ from the sun.

Do you want an example of the true result of diligence? Korean women.... I saw my korean friends putting their sun screen at least two times a day. I didn't know what that is cause i never asked them but after the presentation i knew that in order to get those bright and flawless skin i need to take care of mine more. After all no pain no gain right?

Thanks to the new NIVEA white radiance & smooth serum, it's light weight and easily absorbed by our skin so there's no need to wait for more than three minutes or feeling sticky all they long. You will not be the sticky girl at work or at the public transportation or even worst... elevator. This serum doesn't have any whitening effect, i repeat... this serum will not make your natural skin whiter. It'll make it brighter and smoother and healthier that's for sure. It'll bring back your true radiance and smoothen the texture of your skin. But... You couldn't apply it once and expect the results all year long. You need to time yourself to use it at least twice a day and voila! It's not always about your positive aura (eventhough i'm all about good vibes) but you need to also take care of your "cover" and i think the cheapest and easiest body serum you need is this one... Expensive is not always better but consistency will bring great results.. Oh wow... That's what i thought when i fold those colorful papers during the paperdoll workshop. Namaste peaches...

Thank you NIVEA Indonesia and Fimeladotcom for the fun FimelahoodxNIVEA luncheon!

patrick owen fall/winter 2018 show : amazon fashion week









I got a midnight call from Patrick a few months ago, before all the magical thing happened. I was at the hospital in front of the ICU cause my dad was admitted to the hospital for a serious heart attack which Patrick almost gave me one too after he said "so, you're coming to Tokyo to attend my show okay block the date". Fast forward to a month later, i was in Tokyo wearing Patrick's collection with Anazsiantar, Sonia Eryka, Ayla Dimitri, Alika Islamadina, Andyyanata, the media. Witnessing Patrick's creation in Tokyo.

"Where's your mother? Are you home yet?". A total dejavu when i heard the song at the runway. His childhood memories has been the key inspiration since his last f/w collection including this collection RE:MATA. 
He once again wowed us all with his first solo show in Japan amazon fashion week .Collaborating with darbotz an artist from Indonesia Patrick chose to "loosen up" and reform the traditional batik details in his own way. From office uniform(last f/w show) to playground must haves. RE:MATA is daring, raw and full of unfinished business. But behind the youthful lego colors, millenial belt bags and energetic vibe; the collection was full of well thought details: twisted fabrics, elongate knits, javanese prints,reformed traditional embellishments and structured pvc goodness. 
It's smaller in scale compared to his past collection but it's perfect in my honest opinion. Every look is a hit and there's no pieces you'll miss to recall and remember. 28 looks in total for his first show at the heart of Shibuya and it's enough to blow our minds. From the model cast, music, show lighting to outfit styling. Once again patrickowen and team surprise and impress us all. 


Oh i almost forgot to mention that my dear Anaz also launched her duo lips collaboration with lt pro during the Tokyo amazon fashion week, you'll see more in my vlog and you probably already have at least one piece of her millenial duo lips now as you read the blog. A big congratulation to Patrick and Anaz. I'm signing off now to create another blogpost after a long hiatus! ciao ciao

the only second chance you need



fendi, prada, balenciaga, hermes, loewe, dolce&gabbana and all the high end brands you could ever think of they have it. All you need to do is to give them the second chance, to be new again, loved again, be the limelight of your crazy clubbing night or the master piece you carry to the wedding party. You could buy them all for less only at the secondchancebag. Yup, you hear me, only bags are sold there but who knows?

Is it authentic? Yes for sure, unlike the other new e-commerce; second chance bag has been here all along. They just celebrated their 22 years anniversary this month! 22 years of second chances, the authenticity, the quality, the service are all on point. You could even see the quality of the products through your phone screen  or even better they let you come to their boutique to touch and pick your bags personally.

I personally love to stalk their new arrivals, it's so addictive to see all those bags and all those prices. I got a chance to pick my own fav bags from hermes to gucci and style it last month. I learned it the hard way, that once you touch it and wear it you instantly want to own it. They have no scratch, looked like new pieces and some of them you couldn't even find them again cause the brand won't produce them anymore.

Thank you second chance bag team for the fun photoshoot and hopefully i could own the bags too. BRB dreaming about em....
