Pre-Fall 2013 Trend // Tartan

Meet the Tartans! (not the Spartans, LOL)
Tartans are back this Pre-Fall 2013 season, as seen in several shows such as Chanel, McQ, and Preen. Btw from now on, I will sometimes post two look at the same time, wearing one single item in a two different look. This is the first time. 

The inspiration:
Both from Preen Pre-Fall 2013





This blogpost is almost wordless, I'm in a rush: to my bed. I was exhausted today but the blogging must go on. Just enjoy the pics, people - for now.


Guard Dog Sweater and Galaxy Legging

Back with a new look!
My days seems to be idle lately, especially since there was a big flood here in Jakarta, I spent my days mostly at home - and mostly, sleeping. Thank God we don't have any problem with the flood at my place, but mostly the flood afflicted the norther part of Jakarta like in Pluit and stuff. Let's hope that the flood will soon recedes and the help from local government will come in time. I also feel terribly sorry for the victim of 'tsunami' in UOB Building's basement, deep condolence for the family's loss. 

For 3-4 days, there was heavy rain and the weather was so cold. Yet, from Saturday until today, the weather was surprisingly warm and dry - there is no rain at all (at least at my place). It was the most perfect time to take photos outdoor, to get the sunlight. I realized that the pictures from my previous post were  so good, because there was no sunshine that day, poor lighting we can say.

About the outfit, both the sweater & the legging are already worn from my previous posts. Yet I just came up with the idea of combining vintage stuff and futuristic vibe which represent these two items. A secondhand vintage sweater combined with a futuristic galaxy legging. There's a paradox in it or should we say dialectics? Vintage sweater (thesis) - Galaxy Legging (antithesis) --> create a new style (synthesis). Oh damn, please stop this philosophy shits! Who cares anyway....

Sweater is surely a big thing for this season. From the previous blogpost I already posted about the grey/aztec sweater trend, and now here's some more sweater trend from Pre-Fall 2013 Show:

Pre-Fall 2013 Trend // Grey/Aztec Sweater

It's been so long since my last post, isn't it?
I shall not make any explanation about this, because it will eventually bores you all. The point is, I've been neglecting my "blogging duty" for more than a month.
So, this is the very first post in 2013, eh? To pass 2012 and come into 2013 is actually a blessing indeed. Many people didn't survive 2012 and don't have a slightest chance to see 2013. We all shall be grateful for this of course.

About the outfit, it's more casual and simpler than any of my previous look. I'm not in the mood for a girly-fancy-too decorative outfit. This year, I'm planning to post a more mature, simpler, & wearable looks - and perhaps less color. A not-so-WOW looks - I try not to please everyone, I just wear what I want to wear.

In this super-freezin'-cold-non stop rainy days recently, it is pretty wise to wear a warm cozy sweater, no? I found this grey aztec (or tribal, whatever) sweater in Endorse Shop Tebet last year. I love the aztec pattern accent on the top & the camel patch on the elbow. I mixed this with my asymmetrical-pleats black skirt from Mango, which I bought on sale for only IDR 199.000 (wohoo!).

Grey Aztec Sweater: Gravel, from Endorse Shop Tebet
Asymmetrical-Pleats Black Skirt: Mango
Black Boots: My mom's

Grey sweater is really in, as you can see from Pre-Fall 2013 Shows. So these are the inspiration, the grey sweater trend to be checked out:

Alexander Wang & Celine Pre-Fall 2013
I personally love this Alexander Wang's cozy sweater, especially the pattern. Same as Celine, I got the inspiration to mix aztec sweater with pleats skirt from this look.

I also love these looks, using grey sweater:
