Coral Splash

The knowledge that I'll have a date right after work gave me the needed boost to dress-up a little bit girlie today. So let's welcome the pretty and feminine color of coral!

The quality of the picture is not that good since I didn't bring my faithful pocket camera with me. (Well, even if I DID bring it along, it's such an old camera, the result would be just the same or worse). But anyway, I'd like to record the ensemble, not myself, so this should be sufficient.

Coral is such a happy and feminine color, and it's a great alternative to the all-girl-color pink. I've had this knitted coral sweater and lace camisole for like, years, but never thought that both will make such a lovely combination. Well, not until today, that is.

Since I'm on a date, I took off my brown blazer and just hang it around my copper-color bag as seen on the picture. Blazers are for work. This is a date, not work, so begone formal-looking blazer!

Actually blazer is a life-saver for me since I dislike wearing formal shirt-suit combination, prefer to build my own fun combination instead, something that can serve me well DURING office hour and AFTER office hours. Blazer hides my after-hours look under its professional-looking disguise.

For now, my pizza (and my date) is waiting at La Porchetta, Grand Indonesia. So, off me go!

Pinky Blue

Who doesn't looooove Saturday morning?

Actually I just make this post because I want to show off my new-but-old skirt, made over from an old pair of jeans. Just because I'm getting a bit... ehm, bigger, at the hip so that the jeans won't fit anymore, it doesn't mean I have to throw those poor jeans away. Goodness, I love it when I recycle. It feels so "go green"!

O yeah, I added sprinkles of pink in the form of bag and flip-flop sandals because friends have told me that wearing all-blue make the pale me look like a ghost. Duh...

Want to know how to turn your old jeans into a skirt? Do a little search at
You'll find tons of videos with instruction on how to do that simple sewing trick.

Now I'm dashing out to do some Saturday morning chore. Week-eeeeeeeeeeeeend.... !!!

Flowers in Bloom

Spring is here! So let's start anew!
Well of course, there is no such thing as spring in Indonesia, but still, in memory of the lush brand new Texas green grass of Aggieland campus where I used to study, today I'm wearing this bright flowery skirt to the office. Well, OK, actually I'm wearing this happy ensemble since I need a lil' bit of cheery note to go to drag my lazy me to work this morning...

The top is a simple black shirt which was the uniform of my previous office. I got it for free, with several others uniform pieces, so I try to incorporate all of those free stuff into my daily wardrobe. Yep, I'm a frugal gal at heart. That's why instead of wearing a real belt, I'm wearing a colorful scarf tied around my waist. Scarf is really is a multitasking piece of fabric.

Have a lovely Monday, everyone!
