Hello 2013

Hello people. How's your 2013 has been? Pardon me for not updating me blog, I was in a coma (ok i am just exaggerating, not a real coma) and decided to just stepped away from blog and such for a while. school papers and assignments were piling up in both my laptop and book like crazy, forcing me to study and work even harder for them. for 2012, the result was great for two quarters while the other recent twos were kinda bumpy. I got C for the first time in a desperately-not-so-important subject however I thank God that I was able to maintain my gpa above 3.00 because grades are still important for me. 

Talking about 2013, I nearly forgot to extend "MERRY CHRISTMAS 2012 and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013" to you guys. Let us begin (or should I say, CONTINUE...DUH :D) this 2013 by becoming much more excited and passionate in every single thing we do. =) 

I will not talk or explain much in this post, however I will share pictures from my Instagram account that I took from July 2012 to January 2013. Instagram has helped me a lot in extending my passion; both traveling and taking photos. So, here you guys. Enjoy the photos and if you want, follow my Instagram at @ladida89. Till then, God bless! ;)

Columbia University, New York. taken in Summer - July 2012.

I spotted a Jeffrey Campbell Lita in Spikes at Urban Outffiters. taken in Fall - September 2012.

I was in the mood for some sun at the beach ;) essential kits that I brought to beach in Long Island, New York. taken in Summer - July 2012.

part of U Penn (University of Pennsylvania). taken in Summer - July 2012.

Vanilla milkshake, fries, and good old cheeseburger at Shake Shack. taken in Summer - July 2012.

Fall season meaning time to enjoy warm dessert like this Nutella Crepe I got at Crepe Cafe in Bryant Park. taken in Fall - November 2012.

Fall also means a season of weirdness. It is supposed to be a bit colder but weather in NYC is always weird. I could hit the road with a shirt, a sweater, and a capri jeans with flats since it was only 15-16c/60F. taken in Fall - Sept/Oct 2012.

What a blessing being able to witnessed the most awaited concert of 2012. Barbra Streisand Live in Brooklyn. so far it was the most expensive concert I have ever attended and I will always cherish it for the rest of my life. taken in Fall - October 2012.

living in NYC meaning having a chance to experience something that only occurs once in a lifetime. like this exhibition made by Tatsu Nizhi with the Christopher Columbus' statue located at Columbus Circle, West 59th st. taken in Fall - November 2012.

surprisingly this H&M leather flats is pretty comfy! taken in Fall - September 2012.

I was on holiday for a while and this view was taken from my seat inside Emirates Boeing 777-300. taken in Winter - December 2012.

Had this at Sushi Tei Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tobiko sushi is always a must to bite on for me. LOL. taken in December 2012.

tropical fruits. cheap and yummy. at Petaling Streets market, KL, Malaysia. taken in December 2012.

I paid a visit to this capital of New York state. a small city called Albany with its amazing winter weather and architecture. taken in Winter - January 2013.

 PS: all fifteen pictures that I posted here were taken by me with my iPhone camera and were uploaded into my @ladida89 Instagram account. all pictures are copyright of me and if you want to use it for public blog or any content on the web, please contact me first on the comment or re-link the picture onto this blog site. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

The almost forgotten winter part 5

Hurray!!! :D final post of winter related outfit is here! okay, these pictures were taken during St. Patrick's day. noticed that I did a little bit of experiment with my face and of course the outfit as well! :)

P.S: pardon my non perfect skin condition. I believe I encountered some zits during St. Patrick's day.

I did my own make up so don't expect that it will be as great as magazine model or such.. :D since I have a very sensitive skin (another reason why I rarely put on make up onto my face) so I was just putting on some stuff that I really really need to celebrate St. Pattys :P

eye shadow - Covergirl, blush - Givenchy, mascara - Clinique, nail polish - Spoiled by wet n wild

I did not wear any gloss or lipstick during that day because I was so busy applying those makeup therefore I only put on some natural lip balm from Lancome. the nail polish was a very great bargain consider I got it at local CVS store for just $2ish...:D and also I rarely wear eye liner due to the fact that I already have big eyes.. :P (not that big though but yea...)

dress - Forever 21, head band - H&M, necklace - thrift store, tights - Zara, ring - Forever 21, sneakers - Keds (not shown)

anyway, this is the last post of winter related thingy! can I hear a 'yeayyyy' from all of you??? LOL...

till then, God bless! :)

The almost forgotten winter part 4

Part four - phew... lol, I know you must be so terribly bored already! :D oh well...

hair band - H&M, dress - H&M, necklace - Moselle, ring - H&M, watch - Casio, random bracelets, tights - Zara, flats - Tory Burch

surprised that I wore this during winter? well, like I said earlier, that depends on how cold the weather is outside. winter in NYC is considered 'weird' by some cause it can be super freezing in certain times but it can be springy-like too as well.. if you are a person who think that 59-65F (14-18'C) during winter is pretty awesome then I guess you can dress like what I did in this picture with a touch of light blazer. =)

and, winter related outfit will reach its' final destination on the next post (finally...:D)... next one will be a combination of both outfit and some sort of makeup post..

till then, God bless! :)

The almost forgotten winter part 3

Multi-functional. =)

Yes, that is the theme for this post. See anything similar from the four photos shown below?
Almost all the accessories and outfit that I used were the same; hence the word multi functional came by. I love to mix and match, and I think it is important in the fashion world to do so.

outfit: inner sweater - Zara, dress - Zara, belt - Zara, necklace - thrift store, headband - local drugstore, boots - UGG. random bracelets

2nd outfit: peter pan collar sweater - Zara, dress - Zara, belt - Zara, necklace - thrift store, headband - local drugstore, tights - Zara, boots - UGG, coat (shown below) - H&M, random bracelets

how I dressed during winter season. well that depends on how bad the winter, actually. I have another longer coat that I prepare whenever snow storm or freezing below 28F temp starts to hit :P

and yes, another winter related outfit post is still to come... I hope you guys aren't bored or puke.

till then, God bless!:)

The almost forgotten winter part 2

Hello again and welcome to part two of my winter-related outfit posts.. (yeah yeah, I am such a lazy blogger)

And to people who live in the southern hemisphere (Southern Africa countries, Australia, New Zealand, and some part of Southern America countries), have an enjoyable winter! =)
outfit : inner - Zara, outer sweater - H&M, coat - H&M, necklace - Moselle, jeans - GAP, boots - UGG

And this three are just another random shots of how I dressed up inside my apartment...

till then, God bless! ;)

The almost forgotten winter part 1

I finally decided to use my account to upload these pictures. I know, I know, they are not in their best quality but it is better than nothing, right? and by this post, it marks the return of me in this so-called blogging world after a long long two months hiatus. disappointed? no, not at all, especially after I knew that I could retain my above 3.5 GPA and entered dean's list for God knows so many times...

above picture was taken on January 2012 - around Woodside area in Queens, New York. see those tiny little snows over there? yeap, this year we did not receive large pile of snows 'cause of last year's Nor'easter accident. too bad.

if you guys don't know what I am talking about, here's a hint: 2011 Nor'easter

my simple winter outfit. could not dress up that much since temperature was always an issue in NYC. either you risk yourself dress vigorously but ended up freezing or dress smartly but warm inside.
my outfit = coat - Kenneth Cole, shirt (inside) - Tommy Hilfiger, sweater - Topshop, jeans - GAP 1969, boots - UGG, necklace - Moselle

stay tune for my next post. apologies in advance, still related with winter season outfit and stuff. yeah, I know. I am so freaking lazy...

till then.. God bless!

Fuck blogger!

I could not upload any of my pictures here.

I am so fed up with fuckingly disgusting

I need my umbrella to fly

Without having to relate to Mary Poppins herself, I really need my umbrella to fly. For real. At least that describes my situation here. Away from the loved ones back home even also still away from MY LOVE :( the 500 something miles that separates us from being together on this Valentine's Day. Nevertheless, I am still strong here knowing that we will see each other again in just matter of days :)

And to be honest with you, this is like my comfortable outfit whenever my mind stuck or not having any single idea on what to wear. I am a simple eclectic woman who knows how to dress appropriately without losing her adulthood elegant touch. Disagree with me?? ;)

outfit : hat - H&M, red top - Stradivarius, necklace - Moselle, skirt - Zara, blazer - Zara, tights - Zara, sneakers - Keds, rings - H&M, bag - Steve Madden

say the magic word: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious =)

And Ta-Da! there's my umbrella that's gonna make me fly :P

And that's the end of my hometown-related outfit posts! see you guys later in another version of the posts!
God bless you :)


This time, I am talking about dots. the dots refer to the tights I wore in this pictures. I used to complain about how big both my calf's are but I have learned that complaining won't get you even better anyway. I thank God for every single aspect I had in my life. ;)

like the after effect I got when I shot that picture with my baby Rebel. Dad seemed like a tiny shadow..:D

and oh, I had a haircut. too bad, I dislike short hair 'cause its just looked weird on my face.

outfit: hair band - unbranded, necklace - Forever 21, play suit dress - River Island, blazer - Zara, tights - Zara, riva ballet flat - Tory Burch, ring - H&M

Stay tune for next post. I still have some energy to blog before I hit the futon. er..did I say futon?! :D

God bless! :)

Over sized

Why Over sized? LOL... I named the title "over sized" because it reflects how the clothes were when I wore them during my last vacation in my hometown. I lost a lot of weight when I was in NYC and when I came back home to Jakarta, dum dum dum, all my clothes are loosen up so much that I had to wear a belt every time I went somewhere. funny right?! however, it was a good thing consider walking is my exercise here in NYC where in Jakarta, that is something expensive you can not do freely. Even if I do that, I might as well have to carry pepper spray because crime rate in Jakarta is so high. Plus, you can not rely on public transportation. Like Los Angeles, private vehicle is the only way to go around. Especially if you are an upper class person :)

see that brown colored trouser I got from Bershka?! LOL is all I could type now :D

pardon for my lousy face in those pictures. I was not feeling very well. Not because of the jet lag but because of the weather. It was god-damn HOT. (:P)

stay tune for next post, fellas! God bless! :)

outfit snaps from hometown

hello readers,

happy valentine's day 2012!

must be so not that lame..

I just had chance to update this blog again. Frankly I have no idea why I had became such lazy-ass person when it comes to updating blog. maybe because I am not in the mood? dunno.

Ok. I will share some photos of my outfit in the later post. mostly taken in my hometown.

Till then..God bless! :)
