Blue Life.

Tadaa! 2 post in one day won't be a problem, right?


Feels like Alice in Wonderland every time I wear this dress. Where did it come from? I tailored it at a local tailor in my hometown. I love the color that much. And also my to-go flats recently, lace-up flats from COLORBOX. It feels good to wear a nice dress in a nice weather.


So I will talk about anything despite all of the pictures I post here.
First thing first. Straight to the point, lately been listening to Barasuara, just a local indie band. Wait. Did I say "just"? Well, they're way more than that. It's been a while since I'm that click to an album, and it happens to be a local band (mmm, beside Currents by Tame Impala). I'm so amazed by their masterpiece, anyway. They bring music to a whole new level. So proud.


Second. Life. I might not have enough experience to advise people. But if you want something to be simple, don't think about it the other way or you will get complicated life. Please, for your own sake, if you want something, do it. Take it while it exist. Because regret is very painful.
Sometimes life push you to considering other people opinion but remember, that's only an OPINION. They don't really know what thing is actually good for you. They're only give you suggestion(s). In the end, it's all back to your decision. Just...don't lie to yourself, even you do that to make your relatives happy. Remember, you need to be as happy as you want to see your relatives happy. Don't forget about yourself :))
Sometimes you need to take a risk, to see a better future. For everyone. Be patient, because there's also trial & error in real life.
And the last, if you want to do things, remember. People don't care about yourself as much as you do, so keep going, because it's your life. As long as your kind of happiness isn't that one who take away other's happiness :)
Your insecurity might harm you in the long term. It sometimes lead you to take what other people suggest you, because you don't believe in yourself. But wait. Miracle happens when you believe in yourself. What's in your mind is what going to happen. So train your brain to be a positive thinker.
AND,
............I hope my words is that easy to do in real life. Be brave, people, be brave.
But sometimes we only need to chill.
Regards, Me.
:)

Serious day

Seriously, I need a firm reminder to blog. You know, it's when there are a lot of things to share but you don't make time to write, it feels like your head is going to pop, like a popcorn. So finally today, I blog *yeay* *cheers*
So this #ootd post is occasional, which means I would rarely wear this look but it happened to be my recent style to attend a wedding.
About the skirt, it's not too tricky. You only need to wrap your batik fabric here and there to create this look and it's easy. Just simply match it with a simple top (and I would pick the comfiest one, in the most neutral color). And a clear pump wedges of course. I don't know why I always love this combination :"))



A simple hair-do and make up if you want a minimalist look, or the opposite for fascinated look. A minimalist look would be better for mid day (noon) occasion!:)
Enjoy your Saturday.
Regards, Me.

Time can do anything

As I wrote on my previous post, time can do anything. Do you believe that?


"Time elapse, memories stay" . Memories and time. Two things that we value more than anything in this life because we can't buy it with money. They even could create their own relation.
Time could make something more valuable. The older the age, the more valuable it will be. Memories consist of events happen in several certain time. Good memories get us crave for those days back, bad memories teach us about the meaning of life or simply knock us in the head what's good to be done and what's not on the next time.


Time heals. Time kills. Time covers. Time reveals. Time bounds. Time separates.
 Time can be very friendly but it also can turns out to be our enemy if we don't use it wisely. So, use your time as well as possible. Treat it as well as it could be and finally, regret nothing.



Have a blessed Thursday!

Some shadows are demands to be shown

Greetings!
These are some old photos before I trimmed my hair due to my hair-loss problem, even wayyy before the fasting month. For daily updates of outfit and landscapes pictures, follow my instagram @arabita_


High neck or as I formerly known as turtle neck is one of my favorite items since I was in junior high school. This year when this high neck is back to trend and many shops sell this kind of outfit, I ordered some heehee and this one from Retail Therapy is the best purchase I've done so far. Anyway if you following my blog since the beginning and if you notice, Retail Therapy is also one of my favorite place to shop because they have a loooott of cool stuffs (basically I love winter outfit and they're selling outerwear, sweaters, coats so...we click!). I personally recommend you this local brand. What's not to love from them?
The floppy hat came from family stuff . You guys could get them in a very affordable price.


So what's the relation between the title and this post?
I only want to say to the girls all around the world, that we don't need to create "an image" too much in public. Once you create an image, you will be slipped there and it will be harder to get up and show your true self. Shadow here means your flaws, your past whether it's good or bad, etc. People will judge you anyway.
"Actually, you don't have to cover it all because time reveal."
Time can do anything.


(To be continued)

Have a great day!

Why'd you try to be somebody else

...when you could be yourself?
As time goes by and new people keep coming up to your life; whether they only "recognize" you or they know you as their relation that we called friend, I understand that there are some reasons why people try to be someone else, or become a copycat, or what-so-ever you name it.
We live a life where all this technologies surrounds us. By the technologies evolving, there come these crucial thing for social life called social media (yes, blame it all to social media it's so sacred we can't live without it). It's the biggest influence in our social life nowadays, no?
It facilitate us to reach many information; in this case, fashion trends. However, the negative side affects us a lot; the standard of become a-girl-to-be-admire, fashionable, a fashion-forward becomes slightly boring, then there goes this stereotype of  girl-to-be-admire or in Bahasa we called it "Kekinian", "Hits" or something like that oh cmon you know you got what I'm trying to spell out here. It's a kind of peer-pressure in a big range.
For example, this "monochrome" trend that everyone try to dress in monochrome. No, it's good. I adore those people who consistence and the style is really who they are, but not for those person who grab the style only to catch attention, and they will leave that ashamed behind.
There is also this reason: they don't really know you but she thinks you're cool enough that she need to "compete" with you in persistence and become better than you or just...become slightly you. I don't have to explain you in this case.


People busy representing their life as perfect as it could be in social media that they forget to improve their quality in real life.Their attitude, their heart (what?). Well it's also a self-reminder for us, for me.
Please, fix your personality. I can't imagine how Alexa Chung or Kendall Jenner deal with this haha but I think they don't really mind but it bother me.
Doesn't it good to express your disappointment as something positive than just lying down in your bed and getting upset all the time.... Haha don't get me wrong I don't really mad at this because I laughed too hard when I realized this kind of thing. It really made my day, for sure.
Have a good day!

Gray Scale

Greetings,
It's a lil bit windy today but I'm in the mood of wearing some easy dress. Well you know if I wear a dress, that doesn't mean I wanna look more feminine but I'm on my lazy day.
Lately I love this kind of front tied-up detail (which is hype right now) so this item can't be missed for your wardrobe. Wondering where I found this dress? Scroll down

OUTFIT: COLORBOX sweat dress, shoecorner slip-on, KLAR transparent necklace

Yes they come from COLORBOX. No wonder, right?
It's such an honour to team-up with them :))


Well, people. In real life, I'm socially awkward. That becomes a behavior and that get worse every single day. It's such a minor culture-shock (in my own hometown) (yes I know it's weird). It started out from the first semester and getting worse this whole semester. Poor me? No. I'm the one who could save my condition, get me out from this situation but I still don't know where to start.
So, guys, all I wanna say is, being yourself is such a crucial thing that you have to do whenever and wherever you are. It's not only a teen-quote, believe me. Never have a bad-thought at the beginning of anything. Don't worry of people will accept you or not, just let everything flow. Because if you're doing the opposite, it will end badly. Even worse that you've worried before.


My awkward face because I didn't know that my friend already pressed the shutter button but it turns out to be the best pose. Look at those baloons! At least it can make me happy until tomorow.


Have a good day!

Friday Stroll

Good Afternoon people. Weekend comes along and have you prepare your weekend look?


Well I suggest you to try this look: misty jogger pants from COLORBOX's sport collection and some sleeveless top that come from Friday to Sunday to deal with the heat. I picked this comfy pants so I don't have to worry to wear it in this season because it's much more comfortable instead of jeans (did I mention comfortable too much?). Dark color helps to conceal my huge thighs. So, it's a basic must-have item right?



Just made it casual because it was hot outside and so I could move freely. Because believe me when it comes to hangout with close friend(s), I can't handle to do some silly gesture. Pointy flat shoes will pop this look, without lessened it's comfort. But btw, don't forget to add final touch like: accessories. Of course it's from NATIVE, local brand by me hehe.


Happy weekend!

Uniquely Summer

Good day, readers!
Have I tell you that I attended the last Semarang Fashion Festival on March 16? No? So here I tell you:)) But first I would like to apologize to the superb late post because I'm in the middle of hectic days and deadlines are waiting to be done by next week. This (2nd) college life start to seems interesting anyway.
Back to the topics. I was invited by COLORBOX to see their latest S/S collection, along with Delami Brands. Their theme for this season is Uniquely Summer which represent their collection well.
COLORBOX, which basically provide apparels with teenager as the main target of marketing has always succeeded to touch my heart with their basic pieces. Who doesn't need basic pieces rite? We all need to invest in basic pieces so it just click all at once to me. 
In this season they released summer collection without removing their concept. With some touch of flowers as headpieces, fancy printed tees and purse, also any other apparels that surely will attract you for this summer. But don't worry they still have those pretty sweaters and basic stuffs you need in their outlets. Let's see how the show was!

 Well I highlighted this look (above) from the first time I saw it because it's just soooo pastel and me likey!








Overall, it's a great collection with good concept show and I'm just overwhelmed with these outfits. Ok I'm ran out of words. Enter their store and I could die by second. Their pastel color really suitable for summer. For you guys who like to have monochrome outfit or maybe you would like to have a gloomy day with gloomy outfit, don't worry. They released them too in a cheerful way (see above). From daily outfit till late-night parties, it's hype!

+collection from all Delami Brands & Matahari.

After show with blogger fellas. Of course we're all local bloggers from Semarang teehee.

Feels Good

Good morning!
Yesterday I had a day with my very own personal  photographer, my best companion of all this time haha. Such a little escape from our routines (yes, we had a lot of little escapes time during college schedule that has been running for 2weeks).


This time we went to Goodfellas, a new chill place in Semarang. It has a good concept (it also provides you beer, don't worry) that it would add more "color" to this town since all of our chill places here comes in the form of cafe and restaurant.




What about the menu? Since I'm having a sore-throat so I only ordered hot camomile tea and fish & chips. The dory fish taste fine, and the tartar sauce taste good haha.
Overall, it's a good place to visit with your beloved one.


Anyway, I only wore colorbox dress with daisy prints, shoecorner slip on and sister's sling bag. Essential style of mine in a rush.




I would like to say sorry for the abandoned email during my vacuum on blogging, whoever who still interest to offer me sponsorship or any kind of cooperation please kindly email me to mutiaraya@yahoo.com
Thankyou! And don't forget to follow my instagram account @arabita_ to see my daily outfits and more updates.

Sunflo

Greetings!
It's finally 2015 and my last post was in August 2014. And today is February which mean I had been neglected this blog for...6months. Oh. Time flies, that soon.
So much rain that it created much puddles on the road and this slip-on shoes could handle that hahaha. Idk why Im so happy. It feels like you can cheat life a little. Stay warm with the long cardi and warm skirt but never forget the slit detail to make it a bit more elegants. Prints tanktop with the same tone would give some spice to your look.
Monochrome is the best, after all. I can't lie that these colors has always success to make me feel..safer, but doesn't look "less". It feels like I'm back to my junior hi school phase.



I sometimes feel that my hair doesn't suit me. But I really love my long fringe so it can cover my wide face a little.


PS: Don't forget to bring your stunning umbrella because it rain (almost) everyday!
