GOING HOME


May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
This was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It'll all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

(song by Michael Bublé)

FACE PART 15

      Hello guys! I've been being a little bit busy recently so I can't make the blog post on the schedule. In the other hand, I still do many illustrations like these two below. The first one was ordered for congratulating Ali's graduation. This was the very first time to make the graduation thing card. I was happy for the result! In addition, I made another card for the new born baby (uh well, the baby is my priest's second daughter). This is a special order made by my mom only one hour, it is like ONE HOUR, before she wrapped the greeting card inside the gift. I just rush made that card (including to stalk my priest's and his wife's newly-born daughter attached facebook photo, LOL). But the end of the day, I made it! Yeay!

BIYAN LOOKBOOK: "SERUNI"

      When sitting in the fashion show row, there is usually a lookbook laying on the chair. Biyan's annual show had it. After the show was over, I guessed most of the guest couldn't leave the lookbook back to the empty seat. So did I. I am not only being amazed of what Biyan's did to his fashion collection but also of his pretty lookbook. The lookbook printed in a very big-sized thick paper, allowed me to see the cloth's details clearer. The photography, model, styling, etc inside were perfectly amazing. I would love to keep the book myself and re-read it again next year. (Read also: BIYAN ANNUAL SHOW S/S 2015)

7 TBDRESS' EASY-TO-STYLE LEATHER JACKETS

“The black leather jacket is a fashion staple for a woman's wardrobe, but there are many different styles. There's a blazer style, a riff on the classic motorcycle jacket, or the classic motorcycle style itself. Choose one that fits in with your lifestyle.” -Tim Gunn's Essential Fashion Tips


      Leather Jacket might be the last season’s trendy item, but it is a classic and effortlessly stylish that woman has to have at least a piece. I can’t agree more of what Tim Gunn’ advice at Huffingtonpost.com that leather jacket is very essential regardless the various style & fashion sense all women in the world might have. Well, if you are wanting to have one, you may should check what TBDress (www.tbdress.com) cheap leather jacket collection! Here I show you some of my favorites!

http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Jackets-100598/

      Like what I've said before, black leather jacket is very classic but effortless item. You can fit your mini dress and legging or just your white shirt inside the jacket. It is up to you to choose the perfect one that fits your style. Basic one like the first picture is very recommendable for every woman! In the other hand, since I love studs (I tell you many times, haha) I can’t miss this awesome studded leather jacket like this second picture. I will put my white t-shirt inside with pastel slim pants and a pair of platform. Perfect! Quilted jacket is very interesting too. I have two favorites from TBDress like the ones in the third and fourth picture. What would you love to wear with these quilted jackets?


      Going to more colorful leather jacket, I have two awesome colorblock ones. I think this fifth jacket is very tomboy-ish, isn’t it? I would love to wear black leather loose shorts and t-shirt inside this black and crème jacket to make it more casual and fun. In the other side, I have a crop leather jacket here. What do you think if if this jacket is being mixed and matched with high-waisted A-line floral pencil skirt in pastel with the same pattern crop tee? Another jacket, the last one, is a patchwork designed. I love the dark brown accent, don’t you feel the same? I would love to wear a crop tee with loose 7/8 palazzo pants with this jacket. Oh, and I have one left, it is a bonus for you guys since I like this cute floral jacket!
      The whole amazing look you can only have if you have the leather jacket, of course! Find your favorite one here at TBDress’ Dress Jackets Weddings/ Chapel Length Wedding Jackets/ Designer Wedding Jackets collection http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Jackets-100598/! The last word I want to say, let the words from the fashion guru Mr. Gunn’s words speaking of this: “If you don’t have a leather jacket, and it’s speaking to you, it’s crying out to you, just get one and fits in with your lifestyle and your taste!”

IFW 2014 - STEVEN TACH & ALI CHARISMA

This maybe becomes the last post about Indonesia Fashion Week 2014 (since I already posted almost all the fashion week summary in this blog). Today's designers are Steven Tach and Ali Charisma. Enjoy the post!


 STEVEN TACH
Steven Tach, the Tokyo designer participating at IFW 2014, brought nature inspiration to the dominant asymmetry-designed collection. The casual clothing designed by the designer who had architecture background used monochrome colors such as gray, dark blue, black and white.



ALI CHARISMA
Very thick edgy impression were on Ali Charisma collection entitled "Haze Lush". The tenderness of fog has inspired Ali to make a series of collection made by Bantul batik motifs like the blue fog, leather materials and metallic materials. Some designs used asymmetrical design that showed rebellious impression.

7 MUST-SEE HOMECOMING DRESS COLLECTION FROM TBDRESS

      Hello guys, how are you? Firstly, I want to say Happy Independence Day for my country Indonesia. I hope all the best for the nation and the people! Anyway, as usual, I will post about my weekly favorite dresses picks from TBDress (www.tbdress.com). This homecoming dresses 2014 collection is mostly pretty and sweet. I choose all short dresses certainly with unique design, perfect for any formal or casual occasion. Curious enough? Check it out!

http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Inexpensive-Homecoming-Dresses-7913/
Clockwise from top:
1. Attractive Bowknot Empire Jewel Neckline Knee-Length Bridesmaid Dress
2. Classic Short Pleats A-line One-shoulder Sandra's Prom/Cocktail Dress
3. Unique Spaghetti Straps Sweetheart Ruched Chiffon Short Homecoming Dress
4. Concise Simple One Shoulder A-Line Short Homecoming Dress
    Who can resist the sweetness of ribbon? The big one in the first ball gown short dress or the small one in the second full pleats dress? I like them both. I have to say that the first dress is very sweet and feminine. A pair of platform never fails to complete the look, right? While the second dress becomes very ‘complicated’ with full asymmetry pleats, ankle strap sandals seem really matchy matchy for the look.
    Cut-out is still in the trend so these two dresses are perfect! With so flowy and gentle material, this third pink dress is very fun to be edgy or just girly. It is less cut-out but more elegance nuance inside the fourth dress. Oh, I wish I had a pair of white Valentino studs heels to make the dress shines bright like the diamond.


 Clockwise from top:
1. A-Line Mini/Short-Length Spaghetti Straps Renata's Cocktail/Homecoming Dress
2. A-Line Short-Length One Shoulder Cocktail Homecoming Dress
3. Chic Sheath/Column One-shoulder Mini Tiered Party Dress
      Blink-blink is the next stop for us! It is just a matter to choose the one with full blink bralet or just a little touch in the edge of dress. The same hotness! The last dress we have the one with very bright red. I love the design. This dress is clicked for you who have a slim body coz it flaunts your legs and sexy shoulder a lot!
     How’s the review for this week? You can search the perfect dress on your own inexpensive homecoming dresses and 2014 homecoming dresses collection at TBDress here http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Inexpensive-Homecoming-Dresses-7913/. Have a wonderful day!

THROWBACK TO PREVIOUS WEDDING EXHIBITION

      Do you guys still remember the post about Saptodjojokartiko's show at Emerald Grand Wedding Exhibition? I'm about to recall that event, the behind-the-scene part. I think the place where the event had held (Shangri-La Hotel) was very gorgeous with the all whole wedding decoration. So here are the pictures!

PIFW - (X).S.M.L


      As an annual event, Plaza Indonesia Fashion Week presented the local label, (X).S.M.L, to the stage. The (X).S.M.L collection that night emerged as what I had expected. It was still staying at flowy material, patches, trendy and unique cutting as well. I wish I could see something different from the collection. Nevertheless, the collection of the label that belongs to Biyan Wanaatmadja's line division was still quite interesting with the surprise given by the surprising back detail of some cloth pieces.

AFFANDI MUSEUM (2/3)


      (Read the first post about Affandi Museum post) In this post, we are going to the second gallery. It turned out that the gallery had Affandi's old sketches in the first row. In the second row, the painting was made on canvas and it was so Affandi's style. Moving to the next gallery, the third one, I was more amazed because it had the paintings made by Affandi's children and wife (in the form of embroidery work). Obviously, Kartika had the talent from the father. Her paintings were incredible. She had the expressionism style but the strokes were more real and bolder than her father. Nevertheless, there are other amazing paintings too made by another daughter of Affandi from the second wife. She is Rukmini. She made her paintings in more full color than Kartika and Affandi. AND I LOVE HER PAINTINGS LIKE A LOT. See you in the last post of Affandi Museum!
