Smart Casual Outfit with Pink Magenta Bag You Can Rock Every Day!

First selfie on the cover image! That’s quite phenomenal because I never did it before. Haha!

This time I will be showing you how I rock a bright color bag. I have received so many complaints from my friends that they are confused of what outfit to wear when they have bright color bags thus they just play it safe by purchasing another bag with universal colors. Black? Perfectly true.

I always think sometimes we need to live out of the comfort zone because if we keep being busy swimming in the same pool, the more we grow up, the narrower the pool will be. I think my analogy for that one quite sucks but I believe you get my point. Okay, enough with the talks, here I will show you one of my favorite bright prominent color bag, Pink Magenta from Michael Kors!


Truthfully, I forgot what type of bag that I am wearing here but it surely is Michael Kors which my sister bought for me in Singapore. I really love this bag because its color is very brave which people would notice right away. Because of that, I decided to match up the super flashy color of the bag with something pastel and calmer color.


The blue and white stripes shirt I am wearing is Abercrombie & Fitch, I really like wearing this shirt to uni because it feels really comfortable and light to wear. The watch I am wearing is Alba.


And here is my favorite ripped jeans from Stradivarius and glistening flat shoes from The Executive. I got a very special offer for the flat shoes which I really fancy. I don’t play too much with colors on my clothing because I want my bag to lead the show all alone because if there is too many colors, people’s attention will get distracted and flustered whether to focus on the bag or the clothes.

Therefore, the ball is in your hand. For me, when I mix and match outfit, I always try to focus on one bright color that should be the spotlight. I understand that we all want to look stunning but frankly, no one really cares. Sometimes if you work it out too much, it will be too much for people too. Make your own runaway and try to play with colors. Oh, and you actually can make your look more glamorous by adding some jewelry.


If you see it closer, I am wearing a super heavy glistening silver necklace which I only got for 5$ in Australia. Most of my friends thought it was pricey but actually not at all. Thus it all depends on how you present it.

I hope this blogpost will profoundly inspire your fashion insight for your weekly preference. What prominent color that you like to be your spotlight? Let me know what you think on the comment below and have a great day!

Can You Believe This Outfit Has No Brand At All?

Hello, Peeps! Back again with me in the first weekend of February. I hope January treated you well like it did to me. In the last couple of days, I went to meet up some old friends and accompanied my uni friends in Bandung for a staycation.

And right now, I will be showing you an outfit that I accidentally found in my old wardrobe and I also will be telling you a secret that this outfit ain’t from Zara or Massimo Dutti or Sacoor or any other brands you know.

So, I found this black pants that I left in my old dusty wardrobe at home. I was in a rush and there was no pants left for me to wear thus I dag and messed the whole wardrobe then happened to find it in a very good condition.

This is a pants that I forgot where I got it but my sister gave a year ago. This is not a branded one but it is really comfy and somehow still fits in my body. And this is what I call magical!

For the top outfit, I do still remember because I bought it myself in a fashion bazaar. I truly love the tied knot it has in the bottom of the blouse because it really enhances the outfit without trying.

And voila! I matched the two clothings that both have no brand and transformed them into one of the most trending outfit nowadays. How can I do that? I believe this is not an achievement that I don’t need to be proud of but a creativity that I think everyone can be able to try.

If you want to enhance your unbranded outfit, you may mix it up with accessories, shoes, and/or bag from brands that you like and have excellent quality to enhance your outfit.

I decided to enhance my outfit with my favorite sling bag from Guess and a cat eye glasses from New Look. Those little things might look unnecessary but I think that’s how fashion works, add some unnecessary things and rock with them!

Last but not least, my current favorite golden and brown leather bracelets. I got them from The Executive which price is very affordable. Those little things are truly kind of something that I always admire and like to wear.

So, that’s how I spent my weekend in February! And also, I believe you are also waiting for the January Beatitude 2018. Well I hope?

The January Beatitude 2018 will be up tomorrow and get ready for another weekly preference so you can spice up the way you live the life. I hope this blogpost can inspire you that no matter what brand and how expensive the clothes you wear, it depends on how you represent the outfit in front of the others and most of all, how you rock it with confidence. Thanks for reading and 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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Cocktail boots always look cool in any kind of clothes. But the infirmity of wearing cocktail boots for me is my toes often feel weary after a long time of walking. Besides look cool for Fall but cocktail boots are not really comfy for a long walk but totally perfect for OOTD shoots. So, what do you think about cocktail boots? Yay or Nay? Have a great weekend everyone!
