Outfit: Denim dress with an orange vintage blouse


I found this denim sleeveless dress in the thrift store, and I directly fell in love with it. Since then, it become one of my wardrobe staples. I wore it with blouse, tee underneath, cropped-tee over it, cardigan, shirt, and many more to come.. I love its midi length and its ruffles accent. The orange printed blouse was a vintage which handed down to me from my grandmother. The nude-colored shawl is also my staple because of its breathable cotton fabric and its versatile color.. yet, it's not just a 'usual' staple, it's a staple with a 'twist'; this shawl has pretty yellow plaid pattern at its both ends -- and I'm a big fan of plaid.. Completed with a pair of mary-jane style shoes that add a girly vintage vibe to this look. I feel I'm being myself in this outfit..

Editor's Picks: Cute Denim Dresses by WSDear

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Denim brings out the vibes of comfort, summer, youthful, and casual to your look. Particularly denim dresses with polka dots print or flower embroidery on, look so fresh and chic -- not to mention cute! Above are cute denim dresses I found at WSDear. They have fun cuts, cute beads, pretty embroidery, and dots print, and many of them have pockets -- I love pockets..

Hijab styling tips:
Wear these cute denims with a long-sleeved white tee or light-colored blouse, and paired them with white chiffon skirt or wide-legged pants, then add a denim--colored shawl for a cool edgy summer look.

For more clothing categories at WSDear, you can browse them here: Skirts, Coats/Jackets, Maxi dresses, Shoes, and vintage dresses, especially the 50s style.

Outfit: Summer Bliss


I love pinafores.. (some people call them: overalls or jumpers or apron dresses). This pinafore dress is actually inspired by Apricity's Sunday dress (which, understandably, out of my budget -- not to mention the shipping cost -- and also I want it in a longer hemline). So, when I got this vintage black-and-white plaid pinafore-dress from a local vintage shop here, I was so happy -- it has a perfect midi length I want and I love its cut, its black-and-white pattern, and especially the collar.. it's only waiting to be worn in a perfect 'scene' I had in mind. Like I said in my previous post, I wanted to wear this pinafore and took pictures of it in a scene inspired by these photos by Tara Violet Niami.

So when the children's school invited parents for a meet-up with teachers in a bright sunny morning, I knew it, it's a perfect day -- and a perfect scene with swings in the playground and big trees' shade -- to wear this pretty pinafore dress and post it in a black-and-white photography..

Outfit: Happy 70th Anniversary of Independence Day, Indonesia!


This post is kind of late.. I planned it to be on the blog on August 18th -- at the same day these photos was taken -- in regards to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Indonesia's Independence Day which took place on August 17th, 2015. 

In a bright sunny afternoon of August 18th, 2015, I -- with many other people -- went visiting Kusumanegara National Heroes' Cemetery (Taman Makam Pahlawan Kusumanegara), Yogyakarta. It was a kind of tradition to visit National Heroes' Cemetery on the day after the Independence Day as a way to remembering our national heroes and their sacrifice for our country, and as a reflection for ourself. I also took this as a chance to wear a red-and-white outfit to echo our flag's colors.

I rarely wear red. Actually I'm not a fan of color red. I just feel that red is too bright/bold for an outfit. So, for this 'red-and-white' outfit, I took 'red' a bit; for the headscarf and as a peek at the hemline. I wore my broken-white vintage dress as an outer to cover the most part of this bright red skirt.. I also love the pretty embroideries of this vintage dress; at the collar, sleeves, and pockets. Here are the quick snapshots of my outfit. What do you think? 

In our way home, just before the sun went down, we took some times stopping by Alun-Alun Kidul Keraton Yogyakarta (South Ngayogyakarta Sultan's Palace public park) just to play bubbles and Kitiran (a bright swirl) with the kids..

Little Sweetie also trying to take photos of me, too, using a camera pocket ;p
