Black Lace

 Cant believe we are approaching the end of January already. Where did it go? I basically spend most of it catching back my work momentum and shedding off my winter weight. All those holiday indulgence did some real damage to my waistline. Since I am also launching a new health product soon, I need to adopt my fitspo lifestyle back. Didn't remember when was the last time I did a strict diet and gym time table. So i guess in the next few months, you will be seeing more and more gym mirrorfie in my insta/path timeline (@jenipatty)  ;)

Loving this simple LBD with black lace details from @cloth_inc. It has a slimming silhouette and all the right cutting. The material is really soft and fuss free. This style is also one of the best seller which is often out of stock..lucky me ;)

Gold Leaf on my LBD

Little black dress is any girl's must have. 
I am a little bit too obsessed myself. I love the versatility and the simplicity that comes with it. Of course, without compromising any sense of sophistication.

This dress from Klarra especially, has got me believe that one could never have too many black dress.  Made from thin neoprene material, which is like a scuba suit material, it hugs the body perfectly while enhancing all your curves. I have always been a fan of Neoprene since it gives more form and structure to my petite body. The thick ones are actually very warm for winter season, just like last H&M collaboration with Alexander Wang.

 I wore this dress to Martell's Fashion Party with +Anastasia Siantar the last time. You could easily dress it down for a day look by wearing a pretty gladiator sandals and adding a clean cut blazer as an outerwear, or a black vest. Though it won't be as pretty as the gold foil detail will be covered. That as a matter of fact is my favorite detail about this dress. Hope everyone is having a productive week so far! :)

Didi Budiarjo Pilgrimage at Textile Museum Indonesia

Didi Budiardjo is no stranger in Indonesian fashion business. His creations has been known to be displayed and worn all over the world including Hong Kong and Russia. "Pilgrimage" is his first exhibition in celebrating his 25 years journey in the industry, following his latest fashion show "Curiousity Cabinet".
The White Room
It was a rainy Monday but the museum was already filled with media, from bloggers to newspaper. The location was divided into at least 14 different parts, each with different theme. I had to wait before starting the tour with Didi Budiardjo himself as he was being shoot for an interview. 
His mother was the one who personally greeted each coming guest and offered them drinks and snacks while they wait for the tour to start. She was a really sweet and cheerful middle aged woman, cloaked in high fashion.
"My clothes are my daughters. In fashion, I personify myself as a mother," Didi Said. Born in Malang, East Java on Nov 22, 1970 he has shown interest in art since early age and was heavily inspired by the women around him. 

The White Room is what captivated me first. Almost all of the collections were categorized by colors, the rest with regional theme like Oriental, Middle Eastern and the like. What maintains the exhibition as a whole is the intricate details and the possible amount of thoughts put in creating such piece. As the group and I swept through each room led by Didi Budiardjo himself, we were even more amazed by the history behind. Many of which were hand made and a collaboration with well known artist such as Rinaldy A.Yunardi. Since the two are best friends, all the head piece being displayed are made by him. Aside from Didi's own collection, the exhibition also displayed many pieces from the Museum's and private collector's collection such as rare batik, and dresses from Victorian era. Located in Museum Tekstil Indonesia (Tanah Abang) until 25th January 2015,  it is something you should not miss.

Christmas Eve Beauty

Christmas in USA is like Oktoberfest in Germany. The decorations and ambience is unbeatable. Freshly baked cinnamon buns, twinkling christmas lights all over the street and even reindeer car decoration for cars. Yes you will see cars having rudolph's red nose and antler. 

Had my Christmas Eve brunch at The Ivy Restaurant at Robertson. It has the most beautiful fine ambience with succulent colourful roses on the table and hand painted chinaware. The place is never not crowded even on weekdays morning. The patio is always a good spot for people watching. I would recommend trying the Lobster Linguini here. The food is not out of this world, but the experience is worth queuing for. 

After brunch, we headed to Malibu for a day trip. It took about 45 minutes from Downtown LA. Malibu County Mart is a lovely small shopping block with independent shops like Madison, Chrome Hearts, Maxfield multi brands, Kitson and John Varvatos. You could also find several cafe and restaurants here in Malibu. One of the most popular is Nobu Japanese dining. Sunset watching here is a must. The sky will turn pink and mellow by around 5 pm.

The weather is not as cold and windy today I could actually wear my crop top.

Moschino x Barbie

Christmas is just around the corner i hope you had all your christmas presents ready for your loved ones. I am smitten head over heels for Moschino's latest collection featuring Barbie, PINK Barbie. Jeremy Scott is brilliant. Pink biker jacket bag?? Absolute yes.

December is easily the busiest month of the year, the amount of christmas celebration, birthdays and wedding invitation is just ridiculous. Not to mention, the preparation time for Christmas shopping and family feast. Among one of those invitations, this is the outfit i picked out for a December baby birthday party with family.

Important point to note:
1. Dress appropriately
Considering it's a family event with lots and lots of kids, this is not the place to bare your skin. You will be expected to dress comfortably in a lady like way.
- wear a plunging neckline.
- wear clothes that are too tight/too mini
- wear clothing that requires extra maintenance such as delicate laces.

2. Pick a bright colour. It's a kid birthday, not a gala night. Splash some colour and have some fun

3. Wear your fave superhero.
Kids will love it. Well mine was obviously Barbie (not! I was actually a big sucker for Power Ranger and Pokemon)

Here's my take on  Moschino Barbie for a birthday party

Have a wonderful Christmas party guys!
