Proposal

A lot of things happen in my life and I don't know how to start to write down here. Maybe this is the longest days in my life am not updating my blog. This is (actually) a difficult situation for me. Why? Because I hate to abandoned the things that makes 'me' today. Second one is, I hate to finish a lot of things but can't focus at the same time.

I'm making money myself, which means I'm not working for anyone, I'm working with my own blood for my needs. And if you are a good readers, maybe you can calculate how much money I needs in a month to buy everything I wear, and it's (still) only for secondary needs. Primary needs such as eats etc, I really blessed my parents still support me but I know, I can't always depends on them. Daddy asked me about rather than work, why I am not continue my school, master degree is a cool things, right? Because I really have things to do now and can't tolerate others to steal my dream. I'm not a kind person for this. I called my dream, my own wonderland. Yesh, it's Wondaland.

I'm a niche market but sadly, I can't found niche things here, in Indonesia. In my dictionary, Dollskill is my favorite, I can find cute products and sometimes am afraid to open it because I know I will spent money there. Fvcked the $ rates here, it's getting expensive now. Nastygal is (sometimes) cute, I get buffalo, yru, unif.. that's it. Then after a while, I started to playing on etsy. I figure some handmade (cool) stuffs like garter, harness, etc. Lately, I ask my friends that runs a fashion brands, please make something like this, this, that, or not so basic, but what answer I got? "It's not easy to sell those things here" or "I tried before to make a quirky designs then later I make a monochrome, the monochrome is going well, so I don't have single thought to going back into a quirky one" or even harsh "oh, who buys those things? you? and who?" 

Well, they are not wrong. I'm the one who can't stand with those basic designs. So, I'll make one. But it's not a solution for strangers out there. Alright, I'll make one, curated, store and it's also available online, everything for niche market, you can find it there. I'll ask my friends outside Indonesia to help me. A lot of awesome brands there and I'll bring those here. So, in a very longggg introduction, could you be my supporters? I need some support or maybe you are interested to doing this with me? (well, it's likely I need more people to run Wondaland but I don't know who I should ask to join me, I'm not a picky person, I only needs people who can communicate with me and have same goals). 

So anyone? 










Why I write too much on my fashion blog? I'm wearing Dollskill's pants. I bought it a long time ago, I always wear this pants but this is the first appearance here. Slippers from Adidas x Jeremy Scott, I've been eyeing this at Solestruck, then finally got this when ma bae visiting Paris for works. So I got this from Adidas Paris. Then my clutch is from Ribs.co. This comes in perfect size, my 2 phones + powerbank & wallets can fit well. Ouija necklace is from Stiggyshop. Ouija means spirit board.

Love Me Right

Hey hey hey 

How's life? How's the progress to pursue your dream? Is it going well? or, do you still find what's your goals in life? Think carefully but not too much! Because the scariest thing is the wasted time that you alr know it wasted. 

So on today's post, I don't know how to start, because a lot of things happen. Hm, start from the day that these photos are taken by my sister. These photos are submission for Topshop Kendal x Kyle celebration for their new collection launched on Topshop Indonesia. I ask Ines to accompany me because the rules told me so, so on last Saturday, I ask her then we had the photoshoot on Sunday. 

The result? yeshh, it's out. We're not chosen as the winner, but still, it's such a fun photoshoot. I can't say I didn't care about the result but always the basic is: I do this kind of competition because I lyk to be a gambler or challenger sounds polite. It's fun, since you don't know the result at the end, OR you have a feelings what the result is, but still you want to try because yeah, somehow it's naturally a habit for a gambler lol. I lyk the misery feelings or questions that come up on my head, it's incredibly... sick. I hate the nervousness because it's consume me, but I really learn a lot about/before/after every competition. I like the feelings to be a loser or the winner. You know, you have to fall before you climb. Afraid to fall? Enjoy your fvckin' stuck in your life. I hope a lot of fun competition arise and you are one of precious gem that I have to beat haha! 










I got my top from Geisha Boutique, it's one of a lot of things I got from accompany my mom to ITC Mangga Dua. If you want this kind of top, just go around you will find a lot. Geisha Boutique is on 5th floor, I forgot the lot's number, try to google it. 

Thanks to my sis Patrisca Amanda and bae Ines.

Unpretty

Not a very new photos but I thought these looks are deserved to be here. The actual plan is, I took these photos for Kuningan City OOTD Competition, and ends only at my instagram. It's already over, and the result is, I've chosen as a third winner. 

Anyway, how are you my readers? I was busy caring for my baby, I mean Wondaland. Please kindly follow it instagram here. Last week, I just finished a Korean TV Show called Unpretty Rapstar. Basically it's a show about women who can raps. I stand for Jessi and I like how this show teach me something. Do you know the famous scene of Jessi, when she got mad because she had chosen as the worse rapper by member's vote? Her famous line is "We're not a team, this is a competition". 

At the end of this show, Jessi tears her up, she said Unpretty Rapstar is like a family. She regretted that she got mad and protest. But what I see is, if Jessi not doing like that before, maybe the other members wouldn't feel the tense of this show. Maybe the others wouldn't progress much as the show ends. And it's similar with life, sometimes, we can be an antagonist to change people, to be a trigger to make them become mature than now. 








BONUS :)

I got this outerwear from my bloggers friends. It's a birthday present. Thanks bae(s) <3 <3 <3 Triple hearts for each of you. Skirt is from Stupkid, I bought it months ago, actually I found it on one of my bags and yes, I forgot that I have that wearing this see-through skirt for this photoshoot.

Dominate the Darkness

I have a lot of bucket lists! One of them is taking a photo in the dark, it was accomplished! Yeayyy~! It's realllyyy tiring, since we try this like a hundred, but always, God know when the best will come. This lighting is from.... my car! Hahaha, too bad, I can't stand because the lighting won't reach me, so I just sit (beautifully), and my sis take these photos from different angles. 














Taken by beloved sister, Patrisca Amanda. About the outfit, since it's in the dark, maybe later I can show you the detail in different outfit photos. I'm not trying to be a Red Velvet's member but hey, they wear this crop jacket too at Ice Cream Cake music video~~~~ They styled it with only t-shirt and skirt unfortunately .

The KTZ itself, maybe you can't see it clearly, I got this from Bali. I asked my friend, Ines, to help me to get it. Thanks baby!

Effortless VS Tryin too Hard

One day, I read comments on someone instagram, not to mention her name, but she wear something revealed (her body). For me, it's not a big deal, but I read a lot of harsh comments. Some comments that really catch my attention are : it's different from being effortless or trying too hard to be popular & you're changed.

The questions here,
- gosh, it's nothing, she only wear a crop tank top, go to my instagram and I want to know what's your comments about being to revealed.
- if she is really trying too hard to be popular, so what? Is that your problem? Maybe the impact of her 'trying too hard to be popular' is you know her now. You are the part of this impact. She is popular.
- people change, always. so why you asking like it's weird not common?

Somehow, it makes me sad to read some bad/harsh comments. It's different being harsh or just give an opinion.
