Hi all! I'm so glad to post here again. Hoho, so long since the last time I posted some of my photoshoots in my hometown, eh? Just a few days ago, I started doing internship again. This time my position is the translator of the documents needed for the company's subsidiary. My job desks are translating the English documents into Indonesia since the company wants to create bilingual documents and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for its subsidiary and reformatting the SOP into the relevant one according to the template which is already available.
On my other blog, I'm creating posts about my days doing internship in Bahasa Indonesia, while here, I would like to post only focusing on my outfit and other things that catch my eyes. So please enjoy my internship fashion diary!
This outfit is not fully taken since I was thinking about creating fashion diary after I'm home. Hehe. So, I was wearing black shirt under the cropped flowery top and Mango Suit's skirt. I bought the cropped top only for Rp 1.000,- (currency for $1 = Rp 9.174,31193 from Google) at Pasar Senen. The fabric doesn't absorb the sweat, making uncomfortable wearing it under the heat. Fortunately, I'm wearing it in my air-conditioned office. What I love the most from my today's outfit is my skirt. I bought it about 4 months ago at Storge; a factory outlet which sold branded items with lower price (export scrap, last season items, reject products) in Pasar Festival. I got this for Rp 150.000,-. It can be considered as one of my most expensive fashion items since I prefer shopping at thrift market. But I love it, I fell in love from the first time I saw it, making me lose myself despite of the expensive-for-me price. Hahaha. I love the color and the fabric anyway, it's quite thick and the pocket on the both sides of it makes it become more dependable since I can put my cell phone there without creating such attention-seeker (what I'm trying to say is I always afraid to put my cell phone on my bottom pocket since I'm afraid of being robbed, yeah Jakarta is scary :p)
So, that's it for my first day's outfit, wait for the next! :D

So, during July-September 2011, I spend my time in my hometown; Palembang. It's not a pure holiday, though. I was doing my internship there in one of the companies there. Kill two birds with one stone, eh? :D
Anyway, It was so tiring doing the internship since I was replacing the permanent staff who was leaving during my period of internship. A lot of filings, writing, and fax-ing. I think I can open my own photocopy store, thanks to those works. ;)
Though I was so busy with my internship, as usual, I will never forget to take some fashion shots in Palembang whenever I'm home. Here is some of them, taken by my friend and of course it was taken in my home's backyard :D
Some of my friends said my expression look authentic and this pic reminds them of their mommas -_- (look vintage, eh?)
jacket: synthetic leather jacket (2008's birthday gift), top: polkadot tanktop ($0.3 from Pasar Senen), bottom: assymetrical skirt ($8 from my friend's sale), shoes: Studio Nine (vintage), bag: classical Louis Vuitton drawstring ($3 from thrift market)
top: vintage shirt ($1.5 from Pasar Senen), bottom: shocking pink mini skirt ($4.5)
shirt: DIY, shirt from Topshop (Free from a DIY contest from girls magazine)
Somethings are different in this photoshoots. I was trying something new, like serious face mimic and trying to look (oh no) sexy. Hahahaha, please don't puke after looking at above pictures. I'm just an amateur. By the way, white shirt wore by me on the last pic is my own DIY shirt (it's Topshop anyway), I put some spikes and chains, and cut off some parts of it, and VOILA..! Hope you like it, I'll post the tutorial, maybe... Sometime :D
