Peplum Inspiration for Kebaya
Hey Girls I want to share my outfit for an Event a few weeks ago. It's three posts in a row I posted about outfits. Hahaha..
The event called ACER Srikandi Blogger Award 2013. The awards that were given by Kumpulan Emak Blogger (KEB) for inspiring Blogger Moms. Very cool event, but I will tell you the stories later, okay?
So the dress code for the event is Kebaya, a traditional Indonesian women clothes made of brocades, or cotton or tulles, and usually have embroideries. Kebaya is usually combined with kain (a detached fabric, usually has batik pattern) or sarong. But some women now prefer to have their kain sewn like a a maxi skirt.
Well, the problem is, I didn't have any kebaya in my closet. So I hunted for kebaya just a few days before the event. And alhamdulillah, I found this top only one day before the event at MEIN designers shop, Kemang. It wasn't actually kebaya. It's a peplum top made from brocades fabric by deeandra.
I wore the peplum top with my kain. So it really looked like kebaya. It has copper color with shades of gold. I kinda like it :). I googled how to wrap it and practice several times because I didn't want it to fall off :P.
I like this top because (as I mentioned many times before) I have a large hip. The conventional kebaya makes my hip looks larger. This peplum top works for me because it's kinda hid my hip inside it :P.

Well, thank God, it didn't fall off. I checked it several times in the toilet. Hahaha.. By the end of the day, I changed my heels to wedges, Kain to pants, and this top to a shirt. I had sore feet. I like wearing heels, I just don't like wearing it all day :P.
