exactly how many ?

-it is just sumtin' to lift my looooooooooooooonnnnnnnggggg Mondaag-


Personal Style.. Have we found ours yet?

For as long as i can remember, fashion is always a thing that draws my attention.
i will never intentionally call myself stylish or fashion concious or even saying -BLATANTLY- that i'm a trendy person.
But the attraction is more like im always drawn to sketches,fabrics,applications,cutting and colors.
These things combined,and you put it on to someone fit, not as in supermodel fit, but really can hold the style together, i think the dress will compliment the person and not the other way around.

Growing up, i always had an itch about vintage & retro styles.
Anything embroidered (hand, no mass production machine emroidery please!), polka dot pattern, full skirts,flowy flowery dresses drive me to the edge.Immediately!(if not sooner, ha-ha hello Stanford Blatch! xD)
So that pretty much is always my style.
From early teenager years until im now a woman of 32 years old.

I have never dress formally,even for office purposes.
Luckily, my creative works allow me to do such thing.
It is always refreshing to be able to dress not in suits.
There are those occasional big meetings that i have to obey dress codes.
But the occasions are pretty rare! xD

For references i have several fave places that guarantee,if i visit those place there's only a very slim chance i will come home empty handed.
My fave-fave-fave top of the top with cherry toppings place is PASAR GEDE BAGE,Bandung,West Java.
This huge flea market holds a very rich collection of vintage dresses, old jeans, Velvet Skirts, Sheer Dressses, Summer woven Bags, Cute Glasses and tons other!
I'm not ashamed to admit that part of my collection comes from this place.
Ofcourse we really have to be careful about the products' quality.Basically what you see is what you get!
But peruse away, look closely! and you will never regret.
I once found a cute jeans shorts for US$ 1. Dress for US$2 and so on ;)
The treatment for these garments is actually easy but always underline the cleanlines of the products.Always wash and steam them all with HOT WATER! Bring to the nearest laundry service if you must.

And the other great places is some Trade Centers and private label boutiques
(not the lavish,expensive ones offcourse,but tini tiny ones that hold personal style! ;) )

Have you began to wonder, what influence your style the most?
Is it Trends (from magazines,celeb,movies etc)? Circle of friends? Wallet Conditions? Parental or Social Upbringing? Religic Background?
Neverthelss, everything is so worthy to be explore.

Fashion is fun. And maybe most people see that fashion is shallow and people dont take it seriously.
But there are more than just to put fancy something something.
There are actually lots and lots of work put in there.
Efforts done. Miracles created.

So for you to put and decide what clothes you'll put on today is something serious.
If you dont take yourself seriously, who will ??

So have you found yours, yet?

A Little Letter

Dear a cup of Hot Choco,
Why is it so hard to find you today
i completely froze inside my room :(

Dear my lovely room,
I'm so sorry that i haven't really able to do
the supposedly weekly chores..and makes you like a mess!

Dear my hair,
Please grow thicker & faster

Dear Peanut Butter,
I just can't help my self
Licking the spoon from your jar
(sometimes in the middle of the night)

Dear husband to be,
Oh GAWDDDD...time is running out!!
have we been a total slacker to prepare all things?
hihihihi..... *baaad!!*
i just wanna say that really looking forward
in waiting to be your annoying wife! ha-ha!!
i love you sooooooo much XD XD XD


The Flesh of Blood you once Loved

feel so numb
but this time it is real
daunting my night
and bleak my day

Relentless eclipse episode
i can't feel the warmth of rays
yet i just can't hide from its scorching heat!
[dark,so dark, even with eyes wide open]

i hear murmur
voices from different language
the words i can't digest
the sentences i can't comprehend

the weigh of thousand kilos of chain
tied up both of my leg
unable to catch the dream i weave

weaved once upon a time with you
under a perfect spring sun
under a serene morning dew

and here i am screaming from the top of my lungs
[in silence]

how can this be
how can this be
how can this be

and i just feel like
we are talking from a different time
we are just not within the same wavelength

and everything is just so useless...

Editor's Note:
Attempt to collect & and gather all my poems in to one book
yet i still find a hard time sorting all the pieces
so, here's hoping xD

what do you feel?

if sometimes things are not going so smooth
[and you feel like you have tried enough]

if sometimes times are running too fast
[though you've tried to finish as fast as you could]

if somethings are so dense
[you feel like the air is so tight]

if somethings fall into pieces
[at the least moment you expected]

will you be hoping for sunrise tomorrow?
will you be praying that this moon will bring you warmth?
will the wind breeze you comfort?

as you lay in bed this night and you close your eyes
what do you feel?
