why do you need a staycation?






Why do you need a staycation? Renting a hotel or service apartment in the city for one or a couple of nights to unwind, restart and a dreamy continental breakfast in bed is the modern day option to escape from the reality. I love living in a hotel, like the royal tenenbaum! Even if it's just for a few hours of afternoon nap, those small talks in bed....Priceless.
Staycation is cheaper than therapy for sure, a new scenery and environment without having to run to the airport or wearing seatbelts for hours. It's simple and it makes you happy in an instant. 
You could chill with your bestfriends or family, having a room for a day right in the middle of the city so you could have an ootd spot all day err day.
I tend to use the most casual clothes and accessories during my staycation, my go to outfit is always an oversized shirt dress and a bucket bag. To throw lots of things at once, and this time i use my green loev bag! So easy to mix and match with, the pink inner linings stole my heart and it's classic with a twist just like me. Super love love loev!

Always in Style feat. Levis













It's always a challange for me during ramadhan season to dress modestly and to tolerate other's during this fasting month. 
 
Usually i always wear whatever i like and not even think twice to show my true personality anywhere. 
 
Thank God my favorite color is black, it's modest, subtle, neutral but bold at the same time. I paired the newest collection of Levis to show you that we could all still be stylish, show our own style during this month of self reflection and modesty. 
 
Black with a hint of white, red and a pair of pointy heels to refine the look. I opted the oversized jacket so that it'll cover most of my body and black denim to make my legs look longer yet covered fully. As for the t-shirt i feel like it's the easiest thing to pair with, this look is actually my fuss free look for ramadhan. You don't have to think too much but voila! Hope you'll get inspired!

" In War, numbers are not the issue. It is a question of: Not attacking too aggressively; Concentrate your strength; Assess your enemy; And win the confidence of your men: That is enough"- The Art Of War by Sun Tzu


Hello, back at my new fav place to write my blog. Today it's hella crowded here, lots of meetings going on..... no day off for us i guess. All laptops are on except the seats beside me, i don't know why the women on that seats are always talking about love and weddings. Anyway no matter what we're all talking about or do we're all share the same wifi connection, strong and fast just the way i like everything to be. Oh what an ambiguous statement of mine ahaha. 

Btw since i'm going to to lot's of business meeting too this year and i'm partnering up to build my own company. I won't lie, people do look at the way you look before they decide to work with you, not only looks of course but they don't give "the power suit" it's title without reasons obviously. Therefore I feel like i need more appropriate business look, with a twist of course *cough cough*. I like to look serious and amazeball at the same time! Feminine and strong, blazers and playful earrings, satin pants and a barely there cleavage.... *crying* Well fashion is the way to express oneself after all.

I love the oversized pants and blazer cause fitted clothes make me feel restricted and anxious. I love the balance of this outfit. It's structured, oversized but you could take a little peek of my skin. It's comfy, mysterious and interesting. It's the "You could just watch but you couldn't touch" look ha!. The art of teasing? Just like in business meeting, i like to tease them with a few ideas of who am i and what i could do. 

You could wear whatever you want of course and i prolly will wear something underneath too if i'll meet my future clients. But hey it's my birthday photoshoot! I collaborated with Indra from Nomina pics and Endi Feng my dear dear make up guru. Will upload more outfits and story too! Stay tune peaches...

Saturday






It's an awesome feeling to smell both coffee and mother earth after the rain but with Coldplay's "magic" playing over and over.... Ahhhh... My saturday couldn't be anymore perfect than this. I'm in a coffee shop btw as i type this blogpost of mine, I finally find the best way to write all of my upcoming blogpost. Nope not in my cozy studio in Milan anymore, not in my all white room at home either.  But in the middle of a crowded coffee shop, with headset and all of my chargers and gadget. 

Anyway it's day 3 of my life as a 25 years old woman... Crayyyy, i can't believe it's been six years since i pour my heart out for the first time here in Hippie Gone Mad. My life is still as mad as ever, looking back.... Wow just wow! 

Such an emotional journey.... I'm grateful for all of the people I've encountered in my life. For those who's there since the beginning til now, those who passed by and also people who said goodbye. 

*John Legend's temporarily painless is on right now*

Looking at the picture instead of criticizing my broad shoulders or  my double chin. I finally could accept that my tan line will stay longer than i hoped for and that girl who posed and fighting the heat with a wool outerwear in the name of fashion were in Sydney... We made it kiddo :)

Not in a million years i could predict that in 2017 i will collaborate with an international photographer, shooting my blogpost by the Maroubra beach in Sydney.  Almost naked... I repeat almost naked.... LOL. Covered with Gaudi x Sapto Djojokartiko outerwear, my favorite piece out of their effortlessly chic collection. I feel like I'm in Stella Mccartney's campaign or something, love love love the vibes and the nude color palette. 

The point is... You'll be fine peaches, you did great so far and as long as you keep being kind and keep reaching for your goals. The universe will be by your side, everything you've gained and lost are part of the process. Learn to let go, learn to be chill all the time... I mean all the time... Not all of your partnership will work out, your love life too! You couldn't get everything that you want, but for me i always prefer to get everything that are the best for me. I kept telling the universe that right now i wanna be no one but me (funny how Tony Bennett's Nobody else but me is suddenly playing in my ears). I live in the now and I'm finally could say the sad soppy Cindy is gone and here comes the peachy Cindy! 

Anyway i gotta go my bestfriend's is here... I'm signing off!! Talk to you guys soon peaches, Buon weekend!

A for Alpha









As an Aries i like to be independent, to deal with my problems on my own; to be the boss of my life. When i heard the name of the brand Alpha60 as a part of Australian Fashion Chamber last year i was hooked instantly. No doubt, the construction of the outfits, the silhouette, the juxtaposition between soft and structured. Intricate fabric treatment and a little dose of quirkiness. Every piece is an art, an investment piece that you could wear over and over again.

i love how easy and effortless the looks are and of course, i have an obsession with jumpsuits since last year and so happy when i saw this one! I can eat everything that i want and still look chic ahahaha. Thank you Alex from alpha60

Exploring Sydney Day 1











There are moments that define your life more than the others. Feelings that change you as a person forever. Thoughts that you playback over and over again like a broken records in your head.

Solipsism:

the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist
 
 When i hear Dan the photographer explained it. At first i associated the word with narcissistic, self-centered, ignorant; bottom line... It was all negativity. But, after he explained it more i could understand and could somehow agree with the theory behind the word. Nobody could feel the way you feel, you could never really feel your bestfriend broken heart nor your husbands's disappointment. Feelings are utterly subjective and personal. You couldn't really say "i feel you" really... Because you can't..... or prevent someone to recall their memories.

Our body has its own way to be alive, we're different from one another. We might had a similar experience or feelings but who are we to measure the depth of somebody else's feelings? I learned to not to judge or trying to find out how other's mind work. I learned to let them be, i realized i could definitely try to explain my point of view but i know you could never change others. We all live in our own universe and we're all have the universe inside us.

That being said... Why am i in Sydney again?

On my last trip to Sydney i met lots of cool people and i enjoy the vibe in Sydney so much i couldnt help myself to say yes when i got the invitation to come and collaborated with a few Australian designers and brand in Sydney but yes i do wear indonesian brands here too. Indo represent here! whooppp whooop

I collaborated with Dan Gray and Charlotte from Maq Cosmetics AU and wearing Gaudi Clothing and together we'll create my Australian Journey. These are the first outfit and y'all may all know i had the photoshoot at the opera house. 


More stories, more blogposts and more of my random thoughts during my trip in oz soon...

Enjoy!
