Peaceful Protest

A few months ago, our nation was shaken by the volatile socio-political situation that was happening. So, as I felt that my activist soul was summoned to be at the protest and as a good citizen of democratic nation, I went to the location (with my camera on hand!). It was a hot sweaty day yet somehow I felt proud to be a part of the peaceful march. 

I was so intrigued by what this eerie-looking man was selling. He had so many interesting antiques and vintage leather bags. Alas, I did not come to shop..

And we do have balloons (tied to a cute red bike) when it's a peaceful protest! 

Despite all the lingering political problems that are still around, 
Je t'aime Indonesia..

R.I.P The McQueen

I've been reading so many blogs on Alexander McQueen death. All the rumours that are flying around that he had committed suicide really caught my attention. Aside that we all know he had a massive influence on the fashion world, it is pretty sad to hear these stories on the correlations of mental illness, fame, and super talented artists as victims. Take Heath Ledger who died a few years ago. He was like the new 'Johnny Depp', the rising star.

Back to The McQueen death, I can't help but think, "what would Daphne Guinness wear to the fashion weeks front rows and after parties?" For me, McQueen was one of the reasons I wanted to be a fashion designer, I had dreams of coming to his shows and buying his clothes on the first preview. Now the man had died before I could even afford to buy his designs..

Blue is the colour of Love

I've always loved the colour blue and everytime I see something blue I always want to own them, especially the pieces below that I would definitely put into my wedding registry if there's such thing in this country.. =)

More blue with shines and sparks. I could never ignore metallics, even better, sequinned blue fabrics! These fabulous pieces are exactly what I want, my wishlist.. I need!

'Nuff said.. I can only dream for now..
