Huge Necklace, Blue Sandals, N Jakarta Great Sale 2011

Jakarta Great Sale 2011 has finally arrived! I've been waiting for this month-long shopping festival to do my usual twice-a-year shopping marathon. I conduct my shopping trip like a professional buyer: doing the major splurging only twice a year, during the mid year sale and end year sale. Well, though of course, I still steal some little splurges here and there along the year...
I'm also meeting a guy friend for lunch. I've known him since college, he got married six months ago, and today he's going to introduce me to his wife, so I'm pretty excited!

How do you like my new necklace? It's such an eye-catching, attention-grabbing piece, isn't it. Just got it yesterday. I usually avoid big necklaces, but this one looks so gorgeous on the store display, I just had to have it! They come in three colors: red, blue and white. I picked white because it doesn't look as flashy as the other two colors.

The most wonderful thing about dressing up for weekends is this: you can take risk you won't take when you dress up for work. If you end up looking funny or weird, who cares? People whom you meet on the weekends can take your eccentricity.

Love the orange embroidery work on the back pocket. The skirt is made over from an old pair of jeans that has become too small for me. And since I took modesty more seriously, I've been trying to avoid wearing skin-tight jeans or skin-tight anything (except a bathing suit or dancing leotard, haha!), so turn them over into almost-knee-length skirt seemed to be a logical option. Recycle! Go green!

And what about my new sandals? They're also new, and only IDR 25,000 or USD 2,5! I looooove sale!

Ready, set, go!

Mark your calendar, Jakarta Ladies!
This a picture of the 'damage' done after a straight eight-hour shopping excursion... Considering that I only do major shopping marathon like this twice a year, I think it is acceptable to come home with these so many things, right. *self-justification dot com*

So, Jakarta Ladies, what are you waiting for? Grab your purse, get some girl friends to go with you, and dash out to the nearest mall! Embrace the summer with Jakarta Great Sale 2011!

Great look! Love those shoes.

I am insanely jealous. We have no Jakarta sales in the US of A :( But I love your post about it, and your pic of your finds. I can't wait to see you style them in future posts.

Also, that statement necklace is amazing. It is definitely not too over-the-top, and you can wear it to work. I would! I love what you did with your jeans.
