My Series of Unfortunate Events at Merbabu Mountain with JanSport Indonesia

The title kinda gives you the impression of a very unfortunate feeling, doesn’t it? Well but that’s what exactly happened and I am going to share it with you which I hope it won’t happen to you in your upcoming trip to Merbabu Mountain!

First of all, I really apologize for the long hiatus. I know it had been a month, I had not posted any blogpost since things were extremely hectic from college, works, and so on. My typical reason, isn’t it? But I am serious!

However, enough with the starter and let’s get started with my very first unfortunate event in my very first experience hiking to Merbabu Mountain in Mid Java, Indonesia. Before starting, here’s the route to Merbabu Mt. from Jakarta.

We took train with 8 hours trip from Gambir Station to Jogjakarta Station. Why didn’t you take plane with 1 hour trip? Perhaps the universe had another plan for us! Here’s how it happened and welcome to the trip of my unfortunate events,

Unfortunate Event 1: We Missed Our Flight

That picture above truly portrayed our just-smile-and-screw-it moment after we had missed the flight to Jogjakarta because we basically had a very strong bond in our friendship. If one of us is late, we should wait for them. Just wait and better be late then risk to miss the flight than we have to separate! Basically that way perhaps. Especially if we set aside about the madness of Jakarta’s traffic that Friday afternoon as a more rational and actual reason we missed the flight.

Lesson Learned
If your friend is late and stuck in the traffic, better leave them instead because you would only pay one extra ticket to catch the other departure.

Unfortunate Event 2: I Made a Wrong Reservation

We decided to take train which took 8 hours trip and missed the 1 hour trip of flight instead. Not to forget, I reserved the online train tickets with wrong date which was supposed to be that night on Friday but Saturday instead since our hiking would actually start at 6 AM in the morning. We rushed to the train station and luckily, it could still be rescheduled to that Saturday night though we got charged because of it. We left at 9 PM and arrived in Jogjakarta Station at 5 AM.

Lesson Learned
Stay sane! Don’t be panicked, and make sure to re-check before making online payment, so you would not make a bank account gets bankrupt because of this recklessness.

Unfortunate Event 3: I Ruined My Turban and Lost My Breath

Well my turban still kinda looked nice there. We, the train gang, made to the budget hotel for travelers, Setia Backpacker, which we had already booked nearby the train station. It only costed around 300 IDR per night. Luckily the range was still in walking distance so we did not have to go by car. At 5 AM, we were so happy to finally meet the other friends who already had comfortable sleep and rest.

This picture really showed that I got my two hands full here. I brought my winter clothings and precisely sleeping bag in my Shotwell Bag from JanSport since I knew it would be completely freezing up there. Loving this Shotwell? Better click this link and add my unique code “JSCHIA10” for 10% off.

We left to Boyolali Village using shuttle as a part of the package we had reserved from MDPL Jogja. It costed around 1M IDR per person included round trip accommodation from Jogja to Merbabu basecamp, mattress, tent, 1 porter/tour guide per two persons, foods and drinks.  The tour guides were really kind and helpful, I would really recommend you guys to have MDPL Jogja team on board.

We made it to the hiking start line in Selo Village, Boyolali. It took around an hour or two from the city of Jogjakarta to this village. Selo Route is well-known to be the most friendly route to reach the summit of Merbabu. Though, I don’t really think so.

I completely almost lost my breath and I ruined my turban. No hidings, my look there was a complete mess of how exhausted I was that time even in the first hour of hiking. Thankfully I got my two best men, Raka and Joel who always had my back. They carried my super heavy bag until the first post and kept motivating me to keep going when honestly I was about to call it off.

Lesson Learned
Exercise before you hike! This is my biggest regret because I should have worked out at least 2 weeks or a week before hiking so my body would not get shocked like I had experienced. However it’s true of what people say, the true personality of a person would appear when they go hiking since mostly everyone there will get pressured and react naturally. I am really thankful for having such supportive friends like them!

Unfortunate Event 4: I Broke My Leather Gloves

I was freezing. Totally freezing. I brought my old leather gloves which I got around 3 years ago. My carelessness had brought me to the realization that I should have bought gloves for hiking than for fashion.

Lesson Learned
Recheck if your gloves are still alright to be used. Screw fashion, get what you need!

Unfortunate Event 5: My Flashlight Almost Ran Out of Batteries

Long story short of the exhausting yet adventurous trip, we arrived in Sabana 1 where we had a camp at. We built a tent and made ourselves warm there. At 2 AM, we had to get ready thus we could continue our hiking to the summit at 3 AM which we absolutely had no lights but the flashlights only. And I totally had a lack of research that cold temperature caused the quick decrease of batteries. I had already prepared 2 pair of batteries for my flashlight, but unfortunately they did not really last longer somehow. It ate a lot of powers thus I had to always stick with friends who luckily got longer batteries than mine.

Lesson Learned
Get a headlamp! Much easier and convenient.

Unfortunate Event 6: I Was Late to The Summit

I was expecting to reach the summit of this 3145 MASL Mountain when the sky was still dark thus I could savor the sunrise like I had in Bromo Mountain. However I am still grateful to finally be able to reach the summit though the sun already took a sneak peek behind the clouds before I had got there. I was too exhausted and I got a bit nausea while reaching the summit.

Unfortunate Event 7: I Could Have Left My Sleeping Bag At Camp

So basically the reason why I was late to the summit might be because I was too well-prepared for also bringing my sleeping bag with me in the bag though I actually could have just simply left them in the camp at tent.

Lesson Learned
Just listen and proactively ask! Even though you are sleepy and tired, stay sane and just think of the possible ways.

Unfortunate Event 8: I Slipped While Going Downhill

One fact I could share would be, I was the last hiker who reached the basecamp. The ground was very slippery and I had to be really careful until I got my toes bleeding inside the nails.

Lesson Learned
It’s a destiny.

There it was the eight of unfortunate events I had while hiking to Merbabu Mountain with JanSport Campus Ambassadors Batch 4 Indonesia. There were a lot of things I could be able to learn from this rare experience since I would have never been interested to go hiking if it was not for JanSport. Hehe! But no regrets after all, and I am so happy!

If you guys wanted to know the flow and the highlight of the trip, kindly stalk my Instagram (@pranichia) and get to know better about my experience in my “merbabu.” highlight. Thank you so much for bumping and reading my blogpost, hope you could learn something about it. Ciao!

Believe It or Not, I Wore This Outfit Twice

Isn’t it really common for travelers to always wear the same outfit twice or even thrice?

Well probably not for legit fashionista. I wore this outfit twice but only with different scarf. The most interesting is, I totally wore it in the day I went to Bangkok and so did they day I left. Perhaps this is my signature outfit anyway.

IMG_1423

Here it is, me, wearing this outfit, twice. Looks quite complicated yet very comfy! I have always loved wearing this coat from Paper Scissors, a local Australian brand which I have also admired because of their casual-with-a-twist designs.

IMG_1422.JPG

The scarf that I am wearing is really easy to wear. I only had to adjust the edge of the scarf so it can pass over the top of my forehead, with the sides draping over my shoulders. Adjust the scarf so that one side hangs down twice as low as the other. Lastly I only had to wrap the long end of the scarf around my chin and over my head then drape the end of the scarf over my opposite shoulder. Voila, you are gonna hit the nail on the head right away!

IMG_1421

This cat eye glasses is totally the cheapest glasses I have ever found! It only costed for ฿200 and you could totally rock any outfit that you like. The other accessories I had there is that pink peacock goldy ring. That is not the real name but I just like naming stuffs. I got it in Siam Paragon around ฿350. Super cheap and very stylishly ethnic.

IMG_1420.JPG

Last but not least, my favorite JanSport bag. This bag might look small but you have no idea how many stuffs I could put inside, totally a lot! This black Super FX had always been my good friend while traveling in Thailand.

You can use my code "JSCHIA10" 
to get 10% off for all items on JanSport.

Not only that, my favorite ripped blue jeans from Stradivarius also has an important role in rocking this outfit including my leopard sneakers from Autograph.

img_1420.jpg

Seeing a little closer to the accessories I am wearing. I have my minimalistic Guess watch, pink embroidered bracelet from Semoet Ketjil, and leather bracelet from The Executive. They are totally my lovely little things that always enhance my look. Thus, never ignore the power of accessories when you cannot afford jewelries. Haha!

That’s all I have for this weekend, I hope this blogpost can give you inspiration for your weekly preference. Speaking of wearing it twice, is it stinky? Haha, you are funny. Totally it is! 

Seriously?

No I am absolutely joking. I definitely do not wear it for outside walks since the sun in Thailand is quite evil and moreover, we have laundry too so no worries. Besides that, actually I really made quite big transformation today, I totally have tanned skin now as you can see from these pictures above. Not gonna be so regretful but I am really happy that I can deal with it gracefully. And I hope you can embrace yours too, anything that you are dealing with right now, I hope you can embrace it with open heart. Have a great weekend!

Her Tips: How to Edit Instagram Stories Aesthetically

I have been receiving a lot of questions asking what apps that I use for my Instagram stories. They look like I take a lot of effort on it but actually, not really!

This time I am bringing you to best of the best tips that everyone has been asking on how to create Instagram Stories aesthetically. Pardon me if I never replied your messages asking what apps that I use for editing because I have been keeping and compiling the answers for this blogpost. Nevertheless, it has been a while for me not bumping into my blog but enough with the lead, let’s get to know my Instagram Story designs first if you are not following me on Instagram.

And this is how I designed my Instagram profile to make it more stand out! I made my own cover for Instagram highlights to make it more aesthetic and precisely more professional.

IMG_0496

Instagram (@pranichia)

Starting from this Instagram Story, I happened to receive a bunch of questions asking me what app I use and how I edit them. And here goes the answer for your million dollar questions, lucky you for still reading this page!

Step 1: Take Aesthetic Footages

IMG_0492Take the videos from your phone camera. As far as I have experienced, the Instagram Story result gets much better if you take the photo/video first on your phone camera than directly on Instagram camera. Therefore, I ALWAYS take the shots on phone camera first and process them to the apps I am going to reveal further. For videos, you can take 1-3 seconds length but bear in mind, the footages you take should be rich (at least 5-8 footages). Instagram Story allows you to upload 16 seconds video and you better make the most out of it!

Step 2: Compile Them Using Splice App

IMG_0489

I used to edit my videos on iMovie but unfortunately I found another effective and efficient app to use where I am also able to edit video vertically. Splice allows you to compile footages as many as you wish with common creative music license that you can freely use anywhere.

Step 3: Add Some Filter Using VSCO X

IMG_0490

VSCO has always been a good friend of mine since I started my very first Instagram around 2013. I wrote about VSCO Hacks twice and many of you have also been sending me e-mails to write more.

Related Articles:
VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use
VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use 2.0

VSCO is now coming with a brand new feature where it now allows you to add filters for your video. However this feature is currently only available for VSCO X, you need to subscribe for a year which costs around $20 a year. What makes VSCO X different is you can also use every filter including the famous Fujifilm filters. I highly guarantee this is totally worth it for that amount if you are really intrigued to make your contents aesthetic. I usually use FR4 for Instagram Stories by lessening its intensity and brightness then increasing the contrast.

Step 4: Write Content with Unfold

IMG_0491

This is basically the one that many of you had been asking but I never answered. I used to edit with Rhonna Collage and Rhonna Designs which I reckon it takes more effort and also a bit pricey since they are both paid app with also paid fonts inside. Unfold allows you to make your Instagram Story to be literally a story, not just taking videos of some random people doing PDA or perhaps just making odd movements showing around the circumstances without specific content. This app is really applicable and I am sure you can hit the nail on the head right away.

Step 5: Post Highlight Covers But Not Being Spammy

IMG_0496

We all know those people who update Instagram Highlight covers and it utterly annoys us the most, well perhaps just me? But I really am annoyed because I have to tap forwards. To not being noisy, delete all of your close friends list and only at least leave one or the ones who do not care if you are being spammy. Upload the Instagram Highlight covers there and none of your regular followers will even notice that you upload them. Well you can thank me later.

For the covers, you simply can google the pictures by putting these keywords ‘ (thing you want to add, e.g: books) tumblr png’. Voila! You will find a lot of cover references that you can easily use.

Finally we have reached the end of this page. I am so happy that I can finally answer this million dollar question from you, I hope this is useful enough for you to enhance the quality of your Instagram Stories. I always see Instagram as a way to brand myself as a person thus I always take every single content that I post seriously because in the end you are going to ask this question to yourself, is your post worth to be shared?

Thanks for bumping into my blog and more tips will be coming right up. Have a great weekend!

Hello, Peeps! I am so glad to be back again after a while. Although today is Friday, I just wanted to make up yesterday’s post because seriously, days in uni are getting tense thus I was a bit distracted from blogging and I am really sorry for that. However here I am bringing you another piece of story that I am sure you will be interested if you are intrigued to know about the activity of JanSport Campus Ambassadors Indonesia (JSCA).

IMG_2317.JPG

This is the second mini gathering of JSCA Indonesia where this time, I was utterly responsible for this vlogging workshop from designing the concept, inviting the speakers, choosing the venue, surveying and coordinating the whole workshop. It might sound too much by words but it was full of fun once you jumped into the field!

IMG_2319.JPG

As a part of JSCA, you would go for a real life experience in the marketing field. Although my focus in uni is Public Relations and Corporate Communication but that doesn’t stop me from my interest in learning marketing and product branding strategy. Long story short, the vlogging workshop I designed was involving picnic concept in Twin House Cipete. Isn’t it hot in Jakarta? Are you insane? Yes, I am! Hehe!

IMG_2323.JPG

I really like the picnic ambience which I think really suits well with JanSport’s brand image. Thus after all considerations and approvals, we all decided to say, “Yes, go for it!“. We invited Daniel Shepherd and Melody Amadea to share about their professional experience in vlogging. It is really fun to see that they can make their passion to be a part of their career which I believe it has always been everyone’s goal to achieve in their lifetime experience.

img_2324.jpg

The sunlight was super bright and it almost got our skin burned but thankfully, it was still in the morning thus I reckoned it was a healthy sunlight. I suppose? Nevertheless, the sharing session was fun and we went for brunch break where all the foods were super fancy and delicious. The Full Monty was my favorite!

IMG_2318

IMG_2320

After the sharing session, all ambassadors were challenged to create a vlog which theme was randomly picked by Melody and Daniel. I was paired with CJ to make a what’s-in-my-bag vlog whilst the others got food reviews and lookbook theme. It was actually quite similar with the previous blogpost I wrote but in the different form.

Sooo, that’s all we had in the second mini gathering of JSCA Indonesia. It was a total great experience to have in a lifetime. Thus if there is another open recruitment for the next batch of JanSport Campus Ambassadors Indonesia, I would highly recommend you to be a part of it. One thing I could learn so far from being JSCA is you need to be brave to explore and voice your thoughts to make it happen. So, that’s all I have for today, I hope this blogpost will make your day more delightful. Have a great day!

Outerwear Which Fits Any Outfit That You Should Have

Hello, Peeps! Welcome back to another post of mine which I made with sincere affection for your weekly preference. I think that sounds hyperbola however I will be showing you some fashion insight which I hope you would love!

IMG_2093 2.jpg

This gray knitted outerwear is from Stradivarius. At first I bought it, I felt so unsure because the weather in Jakarta is utterly undeniably hot but the more often I wear it, I started loving it somehow because it always matches with any kind of outfit I wear.

IMG_2091 2.JPG

As I have mentioned in the video that I like wearing sleeveless outfit in the inside, in this outfit I am wearing a black tank top from Cotton On. Since I don’t want it to look that plain, I combined it with a touch of brown leather belt from Uniqlo and a black leather bag from Marc Jacobs.

IMG_2094.JPG

Ever since I utterly fancy monochromatic outfit, I paired the whole outfit with a white jeans from Dorothy Perkins and a white sandals from VNC that I accidentally bought in Bali because the other one was broken.

Outers can give a huge influence for your outfit from nothing to something. You also can mix and match the old clothes you have in your wardrobe so it won’t stay in dusty space anymore. I hope this article can profoundly inspire your fashion insight for your weekly preference. What kind of outerwear do you like? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!

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!

IMG_2001

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.

IMG_2003

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.

IMG_2004

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.

IMG_2002

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!

It took me 8 hours to finish this 8 minutes vlog. I am so drained.

Yet I am super happy! Because this is my very first vlog of Her Journal in 2018. This is also my second time making talk-that-talk kind of vlog since I never felt so comfortable talking in front of the camera but I somehow had the urge to break the silence. In this video, I will be showing you my favorite outers and will be closed with my coming out in regards to sexual violence.

That was one of the things which I never wanted to share in the first place yet I thought that we all need to break the silence and here I speak up for the victims. I would love to draw some red line here, there is no legitimate reason of why sexual violence happens and we all should stop starting asking victims with the question, “what kind of dress did you wear?” because if we remain being silent, how would speak for the victims?

I hope this vlog can profoundly inspire you for your weekly preference. I hope you like it and have a great day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

How’s your day so far? Has anyone confessed anything to you? Have you received any chocolates and flowers? Has anyone kissed you? Has anyone sent a sweet text for you? Those little things we do in the Valentine’s Day have become something very usual yet also very traditional.

I am not so sure if people still celebrate Valentine’s Day since in my way of thinking, the whole culture of either finding or maintaining love has changed a lot. Couples in previous generations only had to communicate through letters (or possibly pigeon?) which took 48 hours to be delivered but they mostly had no significant problem with it whilst in this generation, when he has not replied the text within 3 hours we already have that mini anxiety attack because of that tiny read-and-delivered receipt. Well, the world has shifted really far because of the invention and development of technology. Okay, I think I have been pouring my thoughts about modern love too much.

However, speaking of love and Valentine’s Day, I would like to take you to my staycation experience with Anvaya Beach Resort Bali. I stayed there for 3 days and it felt like home already.

IMG_1977

Let me welcome you to the balcony of my bedroom. Magnificent view with tiny private pool at front. Anvaya Beach Resort Bali actually has two sides for swimming pool. One near Kuta beach and this one right in front of your screen. This blogpost is not sponsored by Anvaya Beach Resort Bali thus I did not take many pictures in my bedroom and around the hotel because I enjoyed the vibes a little too much.

IMG_1976

And here you are in the other side of the pool. You might notice I have been bringing this book everywhere, it is A Work in Progress by Connor Franta which you can find the review here.

IMG_1975

I sat on grass under a tree, I truly loved the ambience there though the sunlight was utterly like a demon which burned my skin as you can see that on my wrist. Behind me was a view to Kuta Beach which you could be able to have a walk around Kuta for jet ski, bike, and temporary tattoos. As I described you these things, it made me want to go back there again.

IMG_1974

Because I wouldn’t just sit and read, I had to have some snack too because I am always hungry. Well, who doesn’t like to eat? I ordered some nachos, melon juice, and a bottle of coke. The nachos was good but it would have been much better if they added some yogurt, mayo, or cream cheese.

IMG_1973

And here I am behind these beautiful aesthetic trees. I really loved hanging out in this pool side because there were so many palm trees that I could post on my Instagram story all the time. They also had nice playlist of Bali traditional songs rather than Pop or RnB musics.

It was an honest review without any intervention of Anvaya Beach Resort Bali. I wrote this blogpost because I was satisfied with the service they gave me while staying in Bali. On a scale 1 to 10, I would give it 9. I don’t give the other one because of the nachos, haha!

However this resort really works well for those who want to have a little escape for self healing and self loving. I wish this blogpost will profoundly inspire you for your weekly preference. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I think I am going to write more and not only gonna post every weekend thus, stay tuned for more!

Beatitude

January Beatitude 2018

Here we are in the same page, surfing in the January Beatitude 2018. I am so happy that this is my very first Beatitude post in 2018. January has taught me a lot of things. Because of that, I think I will add something new in Beatitude post besides the things that I am fond of. I would love to review and share about my experiences in the past few weeks with you which I hope it would be relatable to you too!

I had 2 weeks at uni and 2 weeks off in January. I lived my life just the way I had to live. I believe every single day is never the same as yesterday or tomorrow. These are 3 things I learned in January:

Things might be rough but the ending will not be as far as you think, you just need to live it up and love life as it is.

The universe might make you smile like you are the happiest person in the world but sometimes being too happy might lead you to the other way around.

Truth falls in between. Sometimes if you unintentionally seek it, you won’t find it.

I like hearing stories from people that have been through a lot. Many things happened as always and I am grateful to be a part of it. Now let’s get started with the usual Beatitude post. Let’s check out the things that I like the most in January.

IMG_1885

Blush Volupté from Yves Saint Laurent. This peach shade I have has been my favorite blush on because I really love how it stays super long on my cheek regardless how tight my activity is.

IMG_1886

If you see it closer, there is a glittery section in the middle. I usually use all of it thus it will leave glittery effect yet it doesn’t look that obvious thus you don’t need to worry because it won’t look too much. And one thing that I really like from this Blush Volupté is, it smells really sweet like candy. As you apply it on your cheeks with the provided applicator, its texture is very smooth. I am sure you will also love it!

IMG_1883

Do you remember my latest review of blk cosmetics on their lip matte for Anne Curtis’ wedding? If you do, I actually also have their eyebrow pencil. This uncomplicated beauty Eyebrow Pencil from blk cosmetics has been a really good friend of mine because it is super easy to apply.

IMG_1882

It has two sides which each of them precisely has its own function. On the left, it has a trapezoidal pencil shape to match with the shape of usual eyebrow. On the right, it has a brush to tidy up the drawn eyebrow.

IMG_1884

I really love using this eyebrow pencil from blk cosmetics because it is super easy to use and the result itself is perfect. I wish I had a picture of my eyebrow using this blk cosmetics but if you’d like to see the result, check out my everyday make up on this article.

IMG_1881.JPG

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. I am pretty sure you must know this famous comedian, actor, and filmmaker. He wrote this romance investigation book called Modern Romance where he distinguish the difference between modern and traditional romance. It is well proven that most people these days are very used to digital romance where this app that I believe you call Tinder has now a significant role in finding the love that we seek whilst in traditional romance, most old couples say that they met only a few blocks away from each other’s house. From this book, I think I could summarize that the possibility of someone to meet the love of their life will be geographically expanding since the way we think keeps improving each day which shapes our vision and the way we see the world.

Milk and Honey by Billie Marten has always been an easy listening song that I like to have it on repeat. La Lune was the first song I listened and I started to fall in love with almost every song that she sings. Milk and Honey is about a girl who starts to be weary because the man is always demanding her.

Soo, that’s all I have for January Beatitude 2018. Time flies really fast and now it’s February already. I hope this blogpost could accompany your weekend and profoundly give positive influence for your weekly preference. Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!

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!
