Wednesday Wardrobe

October 19, 2010

Now with my permed hair, I can try other new hair styles by tying it up. It’s fun.

dress: ZARA, hooded cardigan: UNIQLO, sandals (you can hardly see…): Target, earrings: H&M

This is the second of my Wednesday column series called Wednesday Wardrobe where I would like to introduce my and my kids’ wardrobe. Last week was my kids, so this week, I’m writing about my clothes. Here’s one of my favorite dresses. I do not have the right figure for a tubetop, but this dress seems to work. This dress was on sale and it was only available in size M which is too big for me around my chest. So sad. I’m a surf board. I had to alter it myself, but I’m glad I purchased it. It fits fine now and because the back side is crocheted (does this sound right?), it would not fall even for my figure. I wore a casual hooded cardigan to dress it down and also cover the skin that the dress was revealing. I am trying to be respectful since I live in a dominantly Muslim city.

This is what I wore on Tuesday, yesterday. I bought this halter top at an outlet called Millenia in Jakarta for a very small amount. It says Express on the label. I layered it with a white T-shirt for the same reason I stated above. It works fine with my small chest figure, too.

Jl. Jend Sudirman Kav. 52-53

halter top: Express at Millenia Factory Outlet (in Jakarta), earrings: Eastern Market Flea Market in Washington, D.C., white shirt: GAP

While I was attempting to get the photo above while facing on the side, my little monkey daughter came in running. Can you tell where I took my photos…? Not minding that her mom was photographing herself, she finished her business and left. She cracks me up. It is so interesting to see the differences between the first and second because my first would’ve definitely asked what I was doing.

I plan on posting tomorrow as well, but just a reminder that Friday will be another column called Friday Finds. I plan on posting about a store that sells Indonesian nicknacks which are perfect for souvenirs. I hope you’ll come back to check out the store!

    You are truly good at finding the right stuff for yourself. Kaho, you look gorgeous!! You are one of few people who really make the best of my color analysis. BTW my HP’s technical problem has been FINALLY fixed! I’ll have to make some changes and it will be done!

    I love your hooded short sleeve cardigan – that is something I could see myself getting a lot of wear out of.

Lovely Thoughts
