I really love the shape I created for this look. I paired my china print bell-sleeved bell-shaped top with my flare black leather skirt. I also wanted to style the lovely ‘Iznik’ print top so it would look more relevant, I thought my flare black leather skirt was the perfect partner for it. I chose the mirror leather wedges to polish up this look and some matte metal necklace and chain bracelets to keep the look more stylized without looking over-accessorized. If you’re tired of the Zara/J Crew-shorts-and-blazer look, this look would be a great change!
This look has to be my most favorite look to enjoy summer. I just really love the relaxed-ness of it. I feel comfy and feminine in it (without looking overly girly). I’ve had and been wearing the linen culottes for many years now. I’ve worn the culottes with many different tops. I just adore them, they go with everything, they’re such keepers! For this look I topped my culottes with braided cotton top I just got this summer. I’ve worn this outfit 3 times in a week already! I usually refuse to wear the same outfit again so soon I also fancied this look with my metal chain bracelets, a horn-like cuff, a tiger print tote bag, and my favorite wooden sandals.
What do you think about my summer uniform? You should give it a try!
Pleating is one of the treatments on fabrics that I’m so obsessed with. Pleats are such fabulous textures! I really love textures on my dressing, adding a texture or two to an outfit is a great way to boost a stylish look.
I posted this outfit on Pose yesterday. I was playing with muted colors of the blouse, the pants, and the sandals. For a pop of color I completed the look with a gold crinkled leather clutch and an antique gold/pewter ring necklace. What do you think of this look for a casual date night?
I just want to make it clear, none of the pieces of this outfit is by Dries Von Noten. I just used his aesthetic for an inspiration. I’m a big fan of his, he uses a lot of ethnic textiles from all over the world, one of the beautiful ones is batik from Indonesia. Well, I was born in Indonesia, but that’s not the only reason why I’m a big fan of Dries, I also love how he’s able to create chic modern styles using the traditional fabrics like batik.
I got my batik skirt in Indonesia when I was on a vacation in Bali, but this batik is actually Javanese batik. I paired it with a white eyelet lace tank top. I created two looks using this skirt and the tank top. For meeting clients earlier that day, I threw on my favorite Radenroro ‘Yudia‘ crop jacket (in caramel) and stepped on my china print silk satin pumps. This is a great look for work, whatever your occupation is, it’s layered without being too hot on skin because the jacket is made of silk and the skirt is made of cotton. I accessorized with layered chunky metal chains and a stack of tortoise bracelets. Later that day, I was meeting a friend for cocktails, I just left my jacket at my office and changed my pumps to my wooden-heeled sandals for a more casual look. I think this two looks are fresh and pleasantly chic.
I love western-inspired style, actually, I must confess that I am a sucker for western clothes, both the original and the inspired ones. Western-inspired look is one of those looks that I enjoy exploring and play with a lot. My style is 90% sophisticated feminine and 10% playful masculine, my perfect balance.
I paired my monochromatic checkered shirt with a western fringe leather skirt. I left some of the shirt buttons undone and rolled up the sleeves for a sexy and effortless feel. I accessorized with a Radenroro pony bag in moss green and corset tasseled lace-up Louboutins.

I just want to celebrate the summer.. each every single second of it. The sun, the breeze, the grass… And the perfect way to counteract the summer heat is by wearing fresh, clean, airy, and simple outfits. I wanted the same feels for this party look too.
I’m in love with the refreshing aqua color and I really wanted to bring out its beauty and pair it with another color that stands out but cooling. I think these two colors complement each others nicely. This look is cool to rock at any summer parties like bridal showers, weddings, or babyshowers, whether they’re on beaches, poolsides, gardens, rooftops, etc.
We all girl love tulle crinoline/tutu skirts but let’s be honest, most of us would feel a bit hesitant to wear these infamously fabulous ‘ballerina’ skirts. Only Carrie Bradshaw could pull it off, right? Well, no, I’ve proven that with the right styling, tulle skirts could be amazingly wearable and we could wear them without looking costume-y.
My inspiration for this look was obviously ballerina. My black tulle long tutu skirt is covered with of metallic aurora borealis teeny tiny speckles, so I basically can just throw on any colors to go with it on top. I opted for a ‘geisha face’ graphic shirt and layered it with my favorite Radenroro ‘Yudia’ jacket in lipstick pink. As for the shoes I chose my corset Loubies as a take on the ballerina lace-up shoes, I think they play out well with the ‘ballerina’ crinoline skirt.
My party was downtown, for a less-downtowny party, I’d just recycle this look and switch the geisha shirt to a black bustier top and the red mesh bag to a clutch. I’d put my hair up on a messy bun and just put on a pair of diamond stud earrings.Voilà!
Summertime could have some windy seventy-degreeish days and the last thing you want is wearing boring clothes that cover your tan. My solution to this dilemma is to pairing a light-weight non-wool sweater top with a knit mini skirt, you don’t fully cover up your body and your outfit still look and feel summery. I also love the sherbet color combination of coral pink and tangerine, I think it looks great on any summer tanned skin colors. It makes your tanned skin look healthy and glowing.
I wear gold as neutral. I think gold is more exciting and effective as a neutral element of an outfit than the usual neutrals (black, nude, white), it radiates the whole look.
I wanted to create a fun office look using gold, I paired a metallic lamé gold shirt with a muted red silk crinkle tea skirt. Then I belted my waist with a brown leather utilitarian belt. I added tiger print pony shopper tote bag to balance the solid colors and black/gold cork sandals to keep this office look summery fresh.
I got the inspiration of pairing gold and red a little bit from the Chinese culture. These two colors are specially meaningful to the Chinese. In their culture the color of red usually means good luck and the golden color symbolizes wealth and also happiness. The two colors couldn’t be any more appropriate to wear to work, don’t you think? Obviously you don’t want your outfits to look too ethnic-y, you always want the looks to be modern and current. So adding other elements like an animal print bag and a utilitarian belt is the key.
Gold makes an outfit.
