Hijabi Fashion Week: Day 2 - Formal Attire




May 31, 2011

Day 2 - Formal Attire

Outfit 1:
  • Short-slevees, vintage batik maxidress
  • Long-sleeves, black t-shirt underneath
  • White coral belt
  • A brown long earring, just for my left ear :)
  • A green chiffon square-scarf


Outfit 2:
  • Short-sleeves, vintage batik top and skirt
  • Long-sleeves, black t-shirt underneath
  • A scarf in gradation colours: creme to dark brown with gold threads stripes, as an inner-scarf
  • A light-green, satin square-scarf.
  • An ethnic, long necklace made of Kalimantan's natural stones, wore as bracelet
  • Small party bag
  • Flower brooch


Got these vintage batik dress and two pieces of top and skirt from my grandmother.. :)

For me, these clothes are so beautiful and I'm really in love with the motifs: wayang/Indonesian shadow-puppet (outfit 1), birds and flowers (outfit 2). The fabrics are also very comfortable to wear!

These garments are definitely made from high-quality materials and skills (batik technique and art).. After years, they are still in a very good condition.


Tips for today: Re-wear your mom or grandmother's vintage clothes, and try to mix and match them with your 'modern' contemporary clothes. You never know whether it works or whether the combo (vintage-contemporary) will look good on you, unless.. you try.. :)


Don't forget for tomorrow, Day 3 - Work Out Wear!
