What I bought: un-snagging pins and a lovely pink shawl with textured lines.

As I wrote in my previous post, in mid-September 2015 I went to Hijabmorfosa Festival at JEC, Yogyakarta, where I bought some interesting things that I'd love sharing with you. The event was about talk shows, hijab tutorials, beauty class, creative workshop, and other entertainments, including hijab expo market followed by hundreds hijab fashion brands.

To cut a long story short, here's what I bought -- I bought two things:
first, a lovely dusty pink shawl with textured "lines" woven in its fabric. The fabric is soft yet easy to shape, and the reason why I bought it are I'm in love with the "lines motif" and I didn't have pink shawl yet;
second, the innovative pins that was claimed that they won't snag your scarves and crumple up the threads, causing crease and wrinkle or hole on your beloved scarf, as the regular pins usually do. These pins are actually simply not having the spiral form that regular pins commonly have at their ends.

When wearing regular pins, the scarf's threads usually get twisted at this spiral form, get stuck in it, then tearing or loosing the threads and making hole on the scarf.

I don't know if you girls already knew about these pins or not, but I myself just found out about this kind of pins. Actually I've ever knew other type of 'un-snagging' pins before, which has some kind of plastic cover that covered the pin's end's spiral form hoping the threads won't get stuck in it. But, they're just not working for me.. the plastic cover easily detach from the pin.

So, I was so happy to find these pins. I've been looking for pins like this for "ages".. I spontaneously bought 30 pins in color red, black, and gold -- thinking that I might be can't find them again anywhere.. but then I shared few of them with my aunt, and plan to share them with my sister when she arrived home from doing Hajj.

If you are interested in what I bought, here are some details about them I got from their tags. The shawl's brand is UNA (instagram/shop_una), and the pins are sold by Dit (phone: +62 821 3748 7115).

Do you know any other type of 'un-snagging' pins? Please share with us in the comment box below.. thank you.

As we're coming into October, there might be many wedding ceremonies, prom parties, or homecoming events coming approach. I myself have one homecoming/reunion event coming at the end of this month at my college. And what usually come across our mind when we got a wedding-party, prom, or reunion invitation -- of course after we've confirmed we could come -- is the dress we'd love to wear to that event! I usually choose a semi formal dress for that kind of event; a cute, lady-like, a bit retro, yet not too formal dress.

As for the bride, I love to see the bride of the wedding in a sweet, elegant, sophisticated, covered, unique wedding dress.. If you have married, what kind of wedding dress you wore on the day you got married? If you haven't yet, what's your dream wedding dress like?

Recently, a person behind contacted me asking me to review the site, and I thought I wouldn't mind sharing what I know with you, whether it's a clothing store or dresses style I love. So, if you are in search for a wedding dress, or prom dress, or the one for your homecoming event, you might would love to check out The site provides various dresses for that kind of events; wedding gowns, prom dresses, and other pretty dresses for your need. Although for me, most of the dresses seem too "open" (showing too much skin), yet there are wide possibilities to customize these kind of dresses or style them up; adding the length of the hemline or by wearing a long-sleeved satin or sequined blazer over the dresses, adding a wide shawl, etc. However, there are so many dresses with enchanting skirts to choose over; wide flared gorgeous long skirts! And the site also offers dresses for plus size women.

Here are some of the dresses I pick:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Gowns for plus sizes:
7 / 8

So, if you need some pretty dresses, especially for your formal events, you might interested in taking a look at what this site offers you.. Just browse it at

Little Red Riding Hood inspired Outfit

Just stumbled upon this enchanting outfit inspired by the Brothers Grimm's fairy-tale Little Red Riding Hood, ...and I straightly fell in love with it; its gorgeous details and beautiful silhouette. The coat is sold by Armstreet, which specialized on the making of  "old ages" inspired and fairy-tales like clothing pieces. The photography also is amazing and has inspired me on how I would take my own outfit posts in the future..

Rosaspina Vintage

Rosaspina Vintage is one of the fashion blogs I love to read. Written by Ale from Turin, North Italy, the blog consists not only vintage style, but also amazing photography. That's why I love her blog. Ale also designs her own handmade garments, and named this clothing line with the same name as her blog, Rosaspina Vintage. I definitely fall in love with almost all pieces in her collection. And over this past weekend until now, there has been a huge 'moving sale' on Rosaspina Vintage shop, up to 80% off. Unfortunately, most of the pieces are sold out now. So here, on the blog, I would just share some pieces I love from her shop, pictured in these amazing photographs. My favorites are the shoes and the cape..

Outfit: Plumeria Blooms

I managed to get these pictures in between my busy schedule; doing errands and other routines. As a mom of three -- without any assistant, except for ironing -- I often feel I don't have time doing things for myself, so I really have to take some time willfully for doing this. As for daily outfit, I need anything practical, and an outfit like this one usually wins my pick.
I love skirts and dresses, and trying to wear them more frequently. Yet, the ease of wearing pants (underneath a knee-length or midi skirt) is unbeatable, compared to wearing a long skirt -- with or without pants underneath --, and the skirt itself add a touch of feminine, which I love. So for now, this kind of outfit is merely my 'go to' outfit. 
Luckily, there were lots of pretty Frangipani flowers (Plumeria sp, well-known here as Cambodia flowers) fell off all over the place where I took photos, and they add lovely colors to the pictures. Out of the frame, the kids were playfully mimic-ing me, taking pictures of each other with a small pocket camera...
