Outfit: Grey Stripes High-Low Shirt Dress


This shirt dress is so versatile since I can wear it as a top, tucked-in to a skirt, as an outer, or wear it as it is, a dress. Its color grey -- a bit purplish I think -- also can be matched with any other colors. Made of cotton, the material's felt soft and comfortable to wear. The cut makes a ruffle-shaped hemline and the stripes pattern give it a touch of edgy-ness. Love it!

Outfit details:
old scarf
unbranded sunglasses
old shirt dress (bought in a local store)
Mc Romes vest (made in Taiwan)
Denis pants
old peach checked socks
unbranded shoes
Tommy Hilfiger watch

PickedLooks' Gowns


An old friend of mine that I've never met for a long time recently contacted me, telling me that she was in town right now and ask me for a meet-up. She really wanted to meet her old friends in town. So, we were thinking about instead of a meet-up for us both only, why don't we arrange a bigger meet-up, more formal, a sort of homecoming event. When we tossed up this issue to all friends, they all felt so excited and agreed to have a homecoming event, yet not formal or fancy, just a casual meet-up as it will be felt more comfortable and relax..

Now I'm just wondering, if only we had a fancy reunion or a formal homecoming party, what kind of clothing or dresses we might came up with. I browsed one site, Pickedlooks, that provides lots of ball dresses to find out what designs of evening dress or ball gown they have. Almost all of them have an open-shoulder or fitted-top style. However, who doesn't love gorgeous A-line, or loose, long, elegant full pleated skirts made from fine material? As for these 'too open' tops, I can always wear a fancy blazer over it.. -- even though it would be better if these dresses come with a long-sleeves non-transparent top. So I thought there's no reason to be hesitate to get your hands on one of these kind of dresses if you love it.

Here are some styling tips to get a 'hijab look' from these sort of dresses:
  • Choose the one that has an A-line silhouette (it could be a flared pleated skirt or a full skirt), or pick a loose H-line silhouette.
  • Make sure that the material doesn't transparent; or if it does, make sure it's fully lined or has multiple layers that make it not transparent.
  • No slit on the skirt.
  • If the dress has an open-shoulder or a fitted top style, wear a blazer that will fabulously match the dress and suit to the event you're going to. And wear your headscarf with a style that also cover your bosom.
Well.. have you got your dress and ready for the party, Lovelies? ;)

Maxi Dress Moment: Courtney Eaton's Gorgeous Gown at the Met Gala 2015


Courtney Eaton was wearing a gorgeous gown at the Met Gala, May 5th, 2015. I'm instantly in love with this gown since the first time I saw it. It's Dolce & Gabbana. I love the gown's silhouette with its pleated full skirt, the high collar, and it's beautiful glittery gold polka-like patterns. Eaton also completed her look with an even gorgeous headdress!

Outfit: Butterfly Brooch with Floral Print Skirt


This beautiful butterfly brooch was a gift from my mom. It looks like a real butterfly. The wings are so thin and delicate just as the real butterflies' wings. This butterfly brooch is handmade and handpainted by local craftsmen. The wings are made from Silk leaves, and the pin is glued at the back-part. Even though this brooch looks fragile or easy-to-break -- at first I too supposed it was --, but actually it's not.. I wore this all day, and it's strong enough to be worn on days I did my usual daily activities as a mom. If you fold the wing, then open the fold and bring it back to its original form, the wings will shape back as it was first without any signs of folding or any breaking parts.

As for my today's outfit, what else would go perfect with butterflies besides the floral prints..

Note: if you're interested in this butterfly brooch, just send email to: griyaelmas@gmail.com as they don't have any online store yet. They also accept custom order (for example: if you want this butterfly as a wall decoration rather than as a brooch, with batik pattern, or others). *I save a few of these butterfly brooches on my shop, too :)

Outfit details:
old green checked scarf
Gap t-shirt
old skirt
old butterfly ring
Tommy Hilfiger watch
old Mary-Jane style cut-out wedges

Style Crush: Like Mother Like Daughter


Just in time with the Mother's Day is rapidly approaching (it's on the second Sunday in May -- eventhough in Indonesia we celebrate it on December 22nd), I stumbled upon a vintage-inspired label from Lithuania named OffOn at Etsy that sells adorable garments for women and little girls. They have a set of beautiful matching 'mother-daughter' clothes I really swoon over.. -- and I love this cute 'Pumpkin Queen' pattern dress as well for little girl. All dresses are handmade and hand patterned. I acknowledge this label as my favorite one ever.. I want to have every single piece on their site! Each piece has one, two, or all I want to be on a dress: cute print, pretty peter pan collar, pleated shoulder, extra full pleated skirt, hidden pockets in side seams of skirt, vintage style, crochet flowers laces, loose A-line silhouette, long sleeves.. and I can be matching with my little sweetie! I can stop pinning these dresses on my Pinterest as my dream items.. -- the price tags are out of my budget.

Visit OffOn here for more adorable clothing for you and your little girl, and... for gorgeous 'full of love' mother-daughter photographs.
