Fast Fashion FAQ

Hi there, long time no blog. I guess getting used to blogger new layout took me some time. Gee, how old I am! Today I'll be answering to the most frequently asked question landed on my email by you, awesome readers, second to how Scribd works, "What's your personal style like?" or "Can you blog an outfit post?" or "Are you even dressed up everyday or do you blog nekid (naked, LOL, I know it's still pronounced the same but why with this spelling?)" I'm going to answer the nekid one first : um, not literally dressed up but not naked either.

It's not a surprise that these questions arise, since I think 70% of Indonesian blogs are about fashion/personal style. And each craft and/or parenting blogger had also at least one outfit post, so many of you think I should come up with this. But to tell you the truth at this point I'm not really into outfit post, because : I'm not really camera ready, REALLY. I'm beyond awkward when it comes to posing. But do I interested in fashion? Yes I do!

What about personal style? Let me do a quick trivia about my personal style :

  1. I never wear fur. I live in a tropical town, it'd be suicidal to even consider one. 
  2. Nor do I lounge around everyday in bikinis or summer floral prints. Please stop imagining that all people in tropical lands dressed the same way as tourists everyday. 
  3. I don't have a favorite or taboo color in fashion. I love them all! 
  4. If I must live with only one  fashion staple let it be a slightly over-sized crisp white shirt and a pair of good fitting jeans. OK, I cheated, that's two items. 
  5. I have a common obsession for shoes; flats, boots, wedges, heels, pumps, you name it.. I ain't gonna kid myself and deny it. There. 
  6. I have my own Hermes Birkin dilemma; it's the queen bee of all designer's bags, perfectly sized, great investment, classically designed, outstanding choice  of colors and materials, shortly: I will never got bored with it. Yes, it's totally pricey, but the price tag aside; everybody else is wearing it. I'm not so sure whether I want one or not based on that fact alone. 
  7. I luuuurve my waist. I'm a curvy girl in pear so I'm naturally more attracted to vintage cutting than modern one. I love seeing modern cut on everyone else, but it just doesn't work for me. 
So I think that's all I can share for now. Please do tell me what is your numero uno personal style rule? 


  1. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! They can do wonders to the simplest, plainest wardrobe.

  2. nice style. i wish i can see you picture. don't have to posing, just curious how you look like. i bet you're very gorgeous :) me? i'm simple and girly. not much to tell, just ordinary girl :)

  4. Greetings from the Amish community of Lebanon pennsylvainia.I was just passing though and thought id say hello. Richard from Amish Stories.

  5. Yes, I agree with u. Near by 70-75% blogs posted by Indonesian are about fashion or personal living.

  6. I also get that a lot: "Why don't you make outfit posts?". It's not really my thing, but I love fashion. And I have to agree with Christy, accessorize is everything!
