DOODLES + NY GIVEAWAY




dress by Red Cherry // shoes by Nine West

Bloggers would be familiar with getting acquainted with fashion houses, being invited to social or fashion events, and making mutually beneficial arrangements with fashion stores. I feel truly blessed to have been privileged as such. If you've been reading in scrutiny you would already be au courant with Red Cherry, one of my favorite Indonesian-based shops. One of the many reasons is its abundant variety of clothes to choose from; from them I've received skirts, tops, this time I selected this beige dress with tribalistic doodles all over it.

Red Cherry spoke to me about rewarding my readers in celebration of New Year, so we came up with a NEW YEAR GIVEAWAY arrangement for all residing in Indonesia.

NAUGHTYCAL







stripe top from Rovue // pink high waist shorts from H&M // pumps from Zara // vintage scarf

When asked about must have pieces, the top three answers from girls have always been heels, little black dresses, and perfect fit jeans. Which were my answers too all these while. But oh we forgot about basic t-shirts, now that is the ultimate must have. I mean come on, we cannot get enough of them to the extent that even our boyfriend's t-shirts got raided. Upon receiving the striped t-shirt from Rovue, I am content because these days T-shirts are underrated, price prevails over comfort. Rovue, however, guarantees quality. The color was selected on account of Christmas month, but then it presented its ability to support other styles, thus the bright summery and nautical city girl look. 

How was Christmas for everybody? My my, we still have New Years to look forward to, aren't year-ends exciting. I decided not to blog my Christmas outfits, and instead try to constantly update my Facebook and Twitter with details of the days. Do subscribe or follow and let me know what you think!

YOGHURT BLOCK







shirt by Nash Closet // pumps by Zara // necklace & bracelet by Nash Closet


Yesterday I turned down a huge opportunity despite everybody telling me that I should take it as chances are it's not gonna come around again. But I had contemplated what would happen if I took it and if I did not, and decided to let it pass in faith of something even larger (and hopefully imminent). Jinx it not, but pray for me, will you?

On a fashion note, I went home yesterday to a delightful Christmas gift from Nash Closet. The pastel shirt satisfies my endless search of tops, at least temporarily until the desire to shop crawls back. The jewelries, moreover, are not only adorable but also high quality. I love how the items altogether make up a stylishly childish look for the day.

MERRY, MERRY!











printed blouse by Noona // belt by Charles & Keith


With the holiday season and all the Christmas sales everywhere I am just all about shopping for new clothes and accessories for next year's ensembles! So glad to receive another present in spirit of Christmas from Noona, an online store I have been eyeing for a while now. I love their ethnic collection, if you notice I have been advocating Indonesian cultural prints which remain understated in spite of all foreign cultural prints being in trend. Shop at Noona right now!

I am so excited to get past deadlines and all the works and enjoy the holiday season to its fullest. Looking forward to making all my Christmas plans come true! What are your plans for Christmas?

MAGIC CARDS






pants from Red Cherry  //  blue ankle sandals by Nine West

It is that phase where your life is in transition... a major aspect of your life is morphing and you have to make snappy decisions, figuratively for that aspect to morph the best way possible. I just cannot thank God enough for every little details of what have been so far.

So if you've been following my Twitter, you would already have a peek at my early Christmas present from Red Cherry. A pair of diamond printed pants. It is nice to have your pants instead of your tops or dresses stand out, for a change. Thank you for buoying up my Christmas this year! Aren't you excited to give and receive Christmas presents?

MOMENT OF CHANGE

ivory shirt by oneandahalf // wilderness jacket by Ungaro at Farfetch // clutch from Stradivarius // booties by BloopEndorse

I have a thing for 50 shades of white. When invited to the opening of GOODS Dept. in Pacific Place and on a store tour therein, I purchased an ivory shirt from OneAndAHalf, the best decisions I made that day. Looking not over the top is one of my favorite things to do, besides looking over the top for certain events. Hence the perfect go-to shirt, casual at first glance with cute layer twist on the back. Nice touch! Thought I'd snap a photo of the rest of the ensemble on a cupboard where my mom displays the homey pretty stuffs; Hollandaise ceramic shoe figure, my sister's graduation photo, cute little pink flowers, and Japanese wine.

Some days I spend being busy with work and school and meetings, some others on hangouts and fun social get togethers. But as the year approaches its end, the supposedly seized days felt wasted instead as I have not being working on my thesis! Gee, seriously now, where has all my graduation spirit gone and how do I get it back?

JERSEY LIKE








Jersey-like shirt from SEED // gold skirt by Pull & Bear // Converse sneakers

Another public secret of mine is my zero skill in sports due to my probably futile motor nerves. The farthest I get in sports was the minimum exercise mandatory in sports classes in high school, and the only thing I enjoyed during those classes were frankly sitting on the sidelines watching the guys play ball. But hey, if the elements of sports can be channeled onto fashion, wouldn't that be the next best thing? For some reasons I am so into this emerging trend, sporty elements with jerseys and sporty looks. Clearly my brother's closet is subject to my raids in the future!

p.s. - Worry not, I impel myself to do some running and gymnastic exercises every now and then :)

TOUGH ONE





inner lace from Body & Soul // leather shorts from Topshop // necklace from F21

I have been dressing girly for as long as I could remember, but the other day I felt like diverting to something un-me-like. I decided to channel my rock chic side but still maintain that girly vibe I can't seem to exile even for a second. Obviously not today's outfit, as today I went to a meeting - cancellation of which was not made aware to me until I waited 30 minutes in the conference room where we were supposed to meet. The day got worse... not gonna tell 'em here though as I believe in diffusing only positive energy on the blog, but bottomline, I had a rough morning.

But I perk up on other people's joy, so just the perfect evening to announce the winner of Laurence King's giveaway of 100 Years of Fashion Book. Thanks to everyone who joined, I and Laurence King Publishing team appreciate your enthusiastic participations, but True Random Generator decided that the worthwhile book goes to... CARMEN BAUSTERT from Clothes and Camera. Please e-mail me to redeem your prize!

ALL IN ONE

Cropped top from Auburn & Ginger // Purple slit skirt from Red Cherry // black bag from The Bag Line

Prolly the most fun part of today is picking out what to wear. After staring at my wardrobe for a few minutes, I found myself combining a sponsored top with a sponsored skirt and a sponsored bag. I might have to do a thanksgiving post this time around and really extend my gratitude to my amazing sponsors!

Having shopped and gifted so many clothes, I recently lust for shoes and bags. I have grown to believe that quality is key when it comes to shoes and bags, thus the picky attitude, thus the problem of finding the perfect pair or piece. Whilst two pairs of heart-thumping shoes have been purchased last week, I have not been as lucky with bags... until I checked my inbox and came across a mail from House of Fraser!



What a girl needs these days is a one stop shopping site where every single items are guaranteed of their quality and every single customer is valued. House of Fraser offers hundreds of items from any category you can think of; Womens Clothing, Mens Clothing, Kids Clothing, even Furniture and Electricals. The designer handbags section is by far the most conveniently pleasing. Imagine saving so much time from the vain store-to-store hunting... oh how do you like my 8 picks from the first page alone? Boy it's hard to decide which one to get! View more designer bags like these from House of Fraser.

p.s. - Thanks for those who participated in the book giveaway! Stay tuned for winner announcement (and another giveaway!)

DEEP PURPLE









My, my. It is public knowledge that my immune system is as weak as a new-born baby, especially towards flu and cough viruses. Regular taking of meds has not been much of a help. So these days I have been on a bed-rest, which made me really appreciate my time home, but girl has been keeping up with her work and social calendar as well up to the extent this illness allows.

This post features my new slit skirt from Red Cherry. Don't you think the purple color is just the perfect alternative for the trending burgundy this season? Definitely going to be wearing this skirt more often for hang-outs. Visit Red Cherry's insta account (@shop_redcherry) / twitter (@shop_redcherry, here) / website (click here) for many more lovely basics!

p.s - Do you know that when I do not take my outfit pictures in blog-worthy quality, I usually snap a quick pic and tweet it instead? So follow me (@wynneprasetyo) here!
