VLOG | Autumn Look Book at 1/15 Coffee Menteng

Hello, Guys! and Girls? Haha! Sorry for the not-so-funny joke but all I wanted to say was I am sorry for the very late update. I have been pretty occupied these days and I also would like to share that I recently received an e-mail informing me that I am officially a Campus Ambassador of Jansport Indonesia! That was a very pleasing information I have ever received since the other applicants also have very strong potentials.

However! Back to the topic, I recently visited a new coffee shop near Menteng which was just opened around two months ago. As I step my foot in the entrance, I completely love the vintage ambience it has there. Especially the outside ambience with a lot of grasses and plants where you could take best picture of yours for Instagram matters, perhaps?

Haha! Got you!

Because that’s what I always do anyway. I decided to wear my super casual and effortless outfit since I was basically being kidnapped with my two guy friends. To make it easier, I also started to make a Look Book video to please your eyes gracefully.

I hope you guys love the look book video! Because if you do, I think I will make another one. I took the video in the outside of the coffee shop, if you would like to see how the inside looks like. I already prepared one video especially for you of course!

Interested to come? Because I would like to come again for work! This place is really suitable for anyone who would love to spend their time for coffee and work and lifestyle’s sake I suppose. Where is your favorite coffee shop? And have you ever been here before? Share what you think through the comment below and let’s have a conversation! ❤

Before everything else, I guess I will start making two contents for every weekend since I think one post per week is too less to savor for you. Therefore, the blog-post schedule will be set every Saturday and Sunday at 11 AM (UTC+7).

Street Style Idea: Rock Your Ripped Jeans

Hello! Ripped jeans is becoming hype again after all those years. Remember the mural trends that used to be worn by old fashioned people where this artwork is usually painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface but now all fashion bloggers are so into it because mural is now available on apparels!

But I am not going to talk about mural trend. I am going to talk about something else as you have noticed that the title is not talking about mural. Heh!

Isn’t it funny when sometimes your friends or family make fun of your ripped jeans by saying, “Were you chased by a dog?”; “Or were you almost eaten by a dog?”.

Oh my! Thank you so much for your caring. Appreciate it so much.

Instead of bluffing about how your close people make fun of your ripped jeans, let’s get started with the way how to rock your ripped jeans!

img_3111

Leather blazer and ripped jeans are always the best companion for my day out every weekend! Very casual and I barely put a lot of effort on it. This leather blazer might have been seen on my previous blogpost in the Afternoon Coffee at Giyanti Coffee Jakarta.

I am wearing this brown leather blazer from Zara, brown fine leather from Fossil, and a small black backpack from Pedro. These stuff might have also been featured earlier, but I would like to show you how I did mix and match with the new stuff I got here which is the ripped jeans I have from Stradivarius.

The aviator glasses that look like Ray Ban there is Tom Ford which I like the most and it looks very sophisticated. I completely love the design. And the shoes I am wearing is actually the mural shoes! Yay the trend that I mentioned earlier in the introduction is pretty useful, eh? I got it from Stradivarius. And look at what I found here, a very rare peacock that was open for picture! So cute!

So, that’s all for this weekend. I have been loving this ripped jeans so much though some people say that hijabis are not supposed to wear ripped jeans and supposed to wear something modest. That sounds a bit contrast with what I do but that sounds pretty great for the next discussion on my next blogpost. How do you rock ripped jeans? Tell me what you think and share your ideas with the world! Have a great weekend💙

VLOG | Outfit To Wear for Hiking in Pine Forest

Since yesterday’s blogpost sounded more personal, here is another blogpost written with love for you! I am going to talk about the outfit I wore for hiking in the pine forest as a shooting location I went to for the short documentary film ‘the words i hope you never have to hear’.

And also! I wanted to celebrate the total of 1000 likes I finally got on stylebychia!

Thank you so much  to you guys who have been following and keeping up with my blog. I couldn’t thank you enough. I probably should do a giveaway once I reach 4000 total followers! What do you think?

This semester break is totally a break free I have always needed. I am so excited that I finally went to pine forest near the mountain of Tangkuban Perahu, Bandung. It was exactly located a few miles from the mountain.

I went there with my friend as I once requested to go to a place where we can bring ourselves closer to nature. And here it is, a little hike to the pine forest.

We did not bring too many stuff since we did not want to make our bags heavy but one thing that we surely brought was indeed sweater whilst mine was the knitted one. Oh, and for intermezzo, actually that one picture above was once featured on Fossil’s Instagram Story since I wore Fossil watch and it was National Friendship Day. That was really exciting! I really love how Fossil treats everyone on social media, they are so lovely and kind.

I loved the ambience there, the temperature was pretty cold yet still acceptable. I loved how the sun flashing through the leaves and made lingering shadows on the ground. They were so lovely and it makes me want to go there again!

I enjoyed sleeping on the ground, and savoring the warmth of sunlight under the tall pine trees. The air was light and beautiful. I used my knitted sweater from Stradivarius as a pillow. I honestly had no idea what to wear for hiking since I was coming from Jakarta and did not really bring too many clothes which means, my outfits were totally limited and that was frustrating?!

But luckily, I decided to wear green army shirt from et cetera which I found from my wardrobe.

I wore blue ripped jeans from Stradivarius and super comfy shoes from Wakai. Umm, is it weird to wear Wakai for hiking since this shoes are more likely to be worn for malls but hey it was comfortable. Okay.

Honestly this is one of my favorite pictures in 2017. I never ever regret taking this picture because I feel like I totally nailed photography in Depth of Field (DoF) subject. Haha!

If you are keen for knowing what I did in the pine forest, check out my latest vlog here along with the stories behind the scene of ‘the words i hope you never have to hear’.

So that is how I spent my semester break so far. If you still remember my previous post in July Beatitude 2017 saying that there was a lot of things crossed in my minds about social judgement, misinterpretations and many other things, I honestly completely felt better after landing my feet in this place. It is true, they say, sometimes we just need to run away to nature for a day at least, just to clear up our minds. And it really worked. I am not being normative but this is true and it happened to me. Whatever happens, just bring yourself closer to nature. It may put your mind at ease. I hope this blogpost inspires you in every aspects, thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!

VLOG | Afternoon Coffee at Giyanti Coffee Jakarta

I am so glad that I finally reached to the point where I don’t need to get overthink about papers anymore, yes, semester break is coming already!

This time as a part of Beatitude section, I will now be adding more content with vlog named Her Journal. This week’s vlog is Afternoon Coffee which took place in Giyanti Coffee Jakarta. Kindly watch the video below,

I hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did when making it😋 I really love the ambience in that coffee shop near Menteng because they really have perfect lighting for pictures and the air itself is not that hot though Jakarta’s weather has always been a mess with its pollution.

I ordered for the cold latte and hot latte at the same time which are the best companion for afternoon coffee.

Here is the way to the entrance as you have seen on the vlog. Very rustic, very authentic.

For the outfit itself, actually I just came from Jakarta City Hall for the opening ceremony of Jakarta Model United Nations 2017. Thus my outfit seemed quiet formal yet I tried to combine it as casual as possible. For the shirt inside, I got it from Cotton Ink whilst the leather outer from Zara.

For the patterned trouser, I got it from The Executive. I have always loved this trouser because patterned bottom always elevates the way someone’s dresses. For the mini leather bag, I got it from Pedro. Watch from Fossil and the pointed black flat shoes from Mango.

So, that’s all I got for this weekend. A vlog and a fashion inspiration which I hope could be the preference of you weekend. What do you guys think? Ever been to Giyanti or probably ever been to MUN simulation? Share what you think below and have a great weekend! 🙂

Monochromatic Outfit in Spanish-Mexican Sphere

Hello! I hope you guys are having great weekend like I am right now. In the past few days, I spent most of my time strolling around Bandung with my lovely friends and it was totally the time I had so much fun of.

This time I’m going to bring you guys to one of the newest cafe in Bandung. The name is La Costilla!

A new Spanish-Mexican cafe with alluring sphere for insta-addicts. But I am going to tell you neither about the foods nor the cafe. Oops! Later!

I went there with my highschool friends and I decided to wear monochromatic outfit since the ambience seems kind of whitey and bluish.

And a little touch of rustic patterns for my trouser which I bought from H&M since the location seems quite rustic because of its name, La Costilla which means The Ribs? I guess so..

Full of white and perfect lighting! And they also have mini cactus backyard for insta-addicts, just like me.

If I could have stayed longer, the cactus behind my back would have shown its green light and lightened my white top from The Executive.

Believe it or not, the floral door behind my back is a way to the restrooms. I hope there was no one inside as I was blocking the way. Hehe!

Another door to the secret hermitage. Curious what’s in there? How I wish my black little bag like Lara Croft’s from Pedro had enough tools to break in.

These cactuses ain’t like in Sahara! As I stepped my shiny flat shoes from The Executive, I found out the grounds were covered with white little pebbles and sands to make the ambience looks more rustic.

So, that was my journey in the mini backyard of La Costille. Honestly I am a kind of person who always tries to match the outfit based on the place or ocassion I am going to and that is a pleasure for sure!

Thank you so much for reading and stopping by, I hope you always have a great weekend. Share your weekend with me in the comment below and tell me the most exciting time you’ve ever spent in your weekend! 🙂

I combined the outfit with a little touch of glowing goldy color. I have always loved golden colors since it gives a little touch of luxury in any outfit that you wear. I am wearing a golden sling bag from Charles and Keith, watch by Fossil, and a triplet stone ring from New Look.

Whereas for in the bottom part, I am wearing a green army petite pants from New Look and flat shoes from Mango.

Honestly, you can rock anything that you have in your wardrobe with floral bomber jacket. I dare to say it is a must item because it truly upgrades your outfit to the next level, no matter how effortless you want your outfit to be, it will still look perfect in no time.

Sunday Outing with Pastel Culotte

Glad to be back on blogging again! I’m pretty sure you guys must be getting bored with the same old reason I always give.

Hectic schedule.

Sorry I had to mention it again but this is utterly something that I can’t get rid of. However, I have something new for you guys!

In the first week of college, I went to some places with my sister to spend the weekend. And also, looking for new contents for vlog!

Let’s go straight to the content, so I decided to wear pastel culotte that I found in some bazaar I attended when holiday. There are varies and I love each of them.

For the white outerwear, I got it from New Look whilst the black sweater inside, I got it somewhere in Central.


Culottes are best paired with pastel high heels! I got these light pink high heels from Nine West and a watch from Alba.

Culottes have been a hype these days. There are the short ones and even the long ones like I am wearing. However, culottes may also be paired with sneakers. It feels really comfy and honestly, it makes you look slimmer. So, who doesn’t love culottes?

Tell me what’s your favorite pair with culottes on the comment below. I’d love to hear what you say 🙂

How To Wear Heels With Casual Tops

Having high heels in the closet but not confident enough to wear them because afraid of looking too much?

If you have this anxiety then you are on the right page!

You might have seen a lot of OOTD ideas on fashion blogs to dress casually with heels. Well this time, I have another ideas to rock your heels in casual outfits without being afraid of looking too much which probably will inspire you more! 🙂


This is my favorite casual outfit when it’s combined with heels. I believe the top we are wearing in an outfit is the most important thing since it also represents who we are. I have the striped top by et cetera, bag by Kate Spade New York, black heels by Pull & Bear, silver watch for female by Alba, and black cat eye wear by Le Specs. 

Besides that, I also have sweater combined with high heels! since I’m a sweatshirt type of person but not most of the time. I’ve got sweater by Top Shop, green pastel bag by Moeibag, black heels by Nine West, watch and wallet by Fossil, and glasses by Owl.

As you have seen in the picture, there is a green pastel tote bag. Tote bag, sweater, then heels?! Yes. Wearing heels is the most powerful thing to increase the level of women’s fanciness to me. Therefore, instead of wearing sweatshirt with sneakers like usual, why not try high heels?

So, I think that’s all for two outfit ideas that may bring you inspiration to wear heels casually. Which one is your favorite outfit? Or maybe if you have another ideas regarding to wear heels casually, you may share your thoughts in the comment below. Look forward to hear more from you, have a great day! 🙂

Celebration of “Fall in New York” by Kate Spade New York

This Wednesday, I was invited to attend the Fall Collection Preview 2016 by Kate Spade New York at Plaza Senayan, Indonesia. The evening of styling, shopping and celebration of Fall in the store of Kate Spade NY was really exciting and they really hit the nail in the head!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

As I was about to enter the entrance of the store, I was warmly welcomed by Stephanie. She gave me two tickets for photo booth since I was being accompanied by a friend of mine. After I had entered the store, I looked around and saw many of fashion bloggers taking pictures, videos and even doing transactions already since they couldn’t even wait any longer to make their first purchase of Kate Spade’s Fall collection.

Truthfully, their collection never changed to me. Kate Spade NY has their own designs in each of their collection, therefore, no matter how many seasons on earth, they are still being Kate Spade NY with their colorful, bright and sophisticated products.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

This section is my favorite so far since I love monochrome too much. My friends and I also didn’t miss the photo booth session. The background of Broadway mini stage gave a little scenery of Fall in New York.

Since I don’t want to miss the moment of Kate Spade’s Fall Celebration, I wore one of their bag collections and it has become my favorite one. I really enjoyed the evening with all fine people that are gathered in a store of Kate Spade NY at Plaza Senayan. Looking forward to their new collection and thanks for the invitation, Kate Spade!

Casual Day Outfit

In this weekend’s blogpost, I would like to share how I rock outerwear (again). Perhaps, I have shared about how I rock my no-sleeve outerwear but this one is actually one of my favorite outfits which also suit for college or casual day out!

                                     

To me, outerwear is a piece of clothing that could embellish the casualty of my outfit. Imagine a girl wears a white shirt and jeans only, but when she puts an any kind of outerwear, her style has somehow been improved. And that’s why I am truly fond of this piece of clothing.

So, I went for lunch with friends last week. I had no idea what to wear since I didn’t have many clothes in my luggage. I kept searching and thinking about what I should wear that day. I only found a loose black tank top, loose black trouser and a knit brown outerwear. Since that discovery, I matched them into one outfit.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

It was the outfit that I hardly kept on thinking since the remaining clothes that I had was far from many. The loose black tank top and trouser looks like in the same piece, doesn’t it? I only needed to tucked the loose black tank top in the trouser and an-almost-look-alike-jumpsuit is done.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

The combination of tank top and trouser are from Cotton On (tank-top) and Colorbox (trouser). The knit outerwear that I am wearing is from H&M and the flat-shoes that I am fond of is by mango. Because I was a little bored with sling bags, I decided to wear pouch bag that I got somewhere in Penang, Malaysia. For the accessories, I only wore a watch by Alba and those cuty-tiny bracelets that you could get for 1$ – 3$ each at Cotton On.

That’s how my discovery went by when I was running out of clothes in luggage, I hope this blog-post is inspiring enough for your inspiration in dressing up. Have a great weekend! 🙂
