Eid Mubarak!

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, Halo, apa kabar? Kelamaan mudik blognya jadi jarang didatengin deh dua minggu ini *bersih-bersih debu*.
Gimana liburannya? I hope you like your Eid holiday and gain your normal weight soon :D. Kalau kata mak Indah Juli, Syawal ini harusnya puasa Syawal biar turun lagi berat badannya.
Idul Fitri tentu menyenangkan buat semua orang ya. Seneng bisa pulang bertemu orang tua dalam waktu yang agak lama, ketemu teman-teman sekolah, ketemu saudara, makan bareng-bareng. Iya silaturahmi itu menyenangkan. Semoga setelah liburan, kita jadi lebih bersemangat lagi ya menjalani aktivitas sehari-hari. Aamiin..
Oiya, sampai lupa. Belum mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya,


Hari Raya ini nikmat sekali walaupun buat sebagian besar pemudik dari Jakarta mungkin disertai drama-drama arus balik yang parah. Alhamdulillah sudah kembali lagi. Tumpukan pekerjaan mungkin menunggu atau bahkan ada jobdesk baru yang akan dikerjakan. Tapi nggak apa-apa ya, semoga Allah selalu memberikan keberkahan pada apa yan…

Some Hijab Tips: How to Prevent Hijab Being Saggy (Agar Hijab dan Ciput Ninja Tidak Gampang Melorot)

Gambar
Assalaamulaikum,
Halo! Apa kabar?  Kali ini gue mau share tentang tips dan trik pemakaian hijab supaya bentuk hijab kita tahan lama. Ini sebenarnya adalah pertanyaan dari teh Dey. Di postingan terakhir dan di instagram, teh Dey nanya, kok kalo nge-wrap hijab itu akhirnya suka nggak berhasil  dan ciputnya suka merosot? 
Ya, selain itu pun gue juga pernah mengalami yah namanya nyobain hijab style gaya baru tapi kok malah tambah tembem atau kok kayak nggak ada lehernya? Kok style-nya numpuk banget? Kok style numpuk begitu bagus ya di dia, tapi kok di gue enggak? 
Hehehe.. sebagai seorang ordinary woman yang pengen ngikutin gaya hijab ala-ala hijabers, gue pun pernah dan kadang masih mengalami hal-hal seperti itu. Apalagi yang sebelumnya biasa pake hijab segitiga biasa, hijab style itu tampak ribet dan banyak jarumnya. Berbeda dengan jilbab segitiga yang paling hanya menggunakan satu atau dua jarum. 
Nah, pertanyaan teh Dey ini akhirnya gue pikir kayaknya oke juga ya buat ide postingan-posting…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit: Black and Red

Gambar
Hi, Guys! It's been so long since my last post. I miss writing on my blog again. 
I was in the mood of black and red. I love these two colors combined together, but I'm a pastel person. I'm not really into be seen bold, so I chose soft mocha color for my hijab.
Ah, and to remind you the tip to make my leg look a little longer when I wore a long shirt: just tuck the front side of the shirt in. So you have shorter side at the front, and longer side of your shirt at the back.


Considering Instant Hijab : Pilih-Pilih Hijab Instan

Gambar
Do you wear instant hijab? Well I do. I used to wear bergo (instant hijab with short visor) when I didn't have time to wrap my hijab. But then I found this instant hijab about 7 months ago and I really love it. 
I know wrapping hijab can be troublesome for some people; mothers with little baby or little kids, journalist (like one of my best friend), or when we want to do some sports or exercise. Some people (like me) just love how something can be simplify. We all love the idea that we can be ready to go (and look good too) in just a few minutes, don't we?
For casual wear, I only need to put on jeans, a simple shirt,  the instant hijab and put on a simple headband. Since I wear hijab everyday, instant hijab  just makes my life easier. Hehehe...


Beside my simple cotton instant hijab for casual wear, there are some other styles of instant hijab (the glamour, formal, or playful pattern) that can be worn to many occasions. 

I looked on the Internet and I found these fabulous hijabs on…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit : A Peach Palette

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, Today I just want to make a quick post.
My sister in law got married yesterday. It was only the akad nikah, while the party itself  will be held tomorrow. I've taken pictures of the akad, but I will post it later because there were so many pictures to be chosen. So today I'm just going to post my peach outfit.
I rarely wear maxi skirt and I love being photographed wearing it. Hehehe... I wore an orange maxi skirt, a peach basic crepe shirt and a soft dusty pink veil. I found the gold plated belt at et cetera the other day and I love it. 
You know, I have a pear type of body and that means my hip is larger than my shoulder.Since my height is only 155cm and I don't have a that slim figure, it's good to show "where my waist is" rather than "I have large hip". 
Wearing a belt exactly on my waist on this kind of fit basic shirt gave me  the benefit of a peplum top. It gave a better silhouette because it shows my waist, not my large hip. Well…

An Ordinary Saturday : Makan Mie Aceh di Resto Meutia Benhil

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, Hi guys! How's your weekend? Well, I had a relaxing ordinary Saturday. I was meant to go to a book launching on 2 pm, but then I couldn't go there because of an electricity trouble we had in the morning in our house. Alhamdulillah, my hubby fixed it by noon.

Since I needed to shop for new scarves, we went to fX Sudirman on 3 pm. Now I love going to fX because there are several muslim wear stores at this mall; MUSE 101, Pick 'n Choose, la moie and some other stores. Each of them has famous muslim clothing brands we know on the Internet. 

Oh I just love the idea that we, the women who wear hijab, can have a one-stop-shopping point that enable us to find many choices of muslim clothings in one place. And in addition, it's always better to try on the clothes you see on the internet rather than predict whether the clothes you see on model will perfectly fit on your body shape or not and whether you like the fabric and the color of it or not.

For example, yeste…

Inspirasi Hijab Outfit : O Is for Orange

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum, It's Sunday night already and it's a little hard to gain more spirit after such a long holiday. Well, wherever we are I hope you and I will have extra energy to start the week in a good spirit :). Aamiin..
This is my OOTD for today. I'm combining pale colours, pale grey and white, with the orange scarf. I found the scarf about three or four moths ago and in love with the colour. Ever since I bought it, it seems that I'm trying to mix the scarf with as many as colours that I have in my closet. Hahaha... Just a splash of orange made my face look brighter so instantly.



Wassalaamualaikum.

Some Old Favorites

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum.  Hi guys, how are you? I was just arrived at my home in Tasik. Yesterday we drove from Depok to Cimahi at 2 am and today we drove from Cimahi to Tasik at 3 am. Mudik (it's when people go back to their home to meet family and friends before Eid) is tiring, but it's always fun to have a longer holiday to spend time with our dearest families. There were traffic jams at some spots, but alhamdulillah we're arrived home savely. Are you going mudik? If you are, I hope you arrive home savely too :).
Yesterday I took some photos of my OOTD. This outfit is my old favorites. I got the scarf about 3 years ago from one of my office mate. I love the turquoise color and I mixed it with my Nabilia summer top (old).

Assalaamualaikum, Hello! Today I want to share the second part of stories from JIFW 2013. I attended a talk show about how to mix and match your outfit for work, especially for women wearing hijab.
The talk show was hosted by Evelyn, the Fashion Editor of CHIC magazine. The guests are Aju Isni Karim of Trimoda Up2Date and Fetik, the designer of Fattibile, a brand specialized on working apparel under Trimoda Up2Date management.

These items can be combined with each other depending on the occasion and the working environment that you are working in. Fetik show us how to mix and match the outfit for working women with hijab.

The first picture is the basic long shirt and pants. You can wear them if you're working at the office. If you need a more stylish look to see the clients, you can add a long vest. This long vest actually have a drapery on the back but I d…

From Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week 2013 (Part 1): The Wonderful Traditional Prints!

Gambar
Assalaamualaikum,  Hi guys, how are you doing? Well, yesterday I went to Jakarta Islamic Fashion Week (JIFW) 2013. I watched a fashion show and attended a talk show, but I think I will share them in two posts - thanks to Kumpulan Emak-Emak Blogger (KEB) I had a press and photographer access :D. So now,  let's focus on the first part: the fashion show! :D
The fashion show was brought by three designers: Susie Hedijanto, Syahreza Muslim, and Rumah Ayu (featuring Kami Idea and fitRosa). The designers presented their collections to welcome the month of Ramadhan and the Eid al-Fitr day and each shows how wonderful the Indonesian traditional prints and fabrics are. 
Susie Hedijanto
Susie Hedijanto's collections was entitled: The Nature of Celebes. The collections itself was inspired by the Makassar's traditional print, and you can see those beautiful prints were mixed in colourful natural pallets: gold with bright green, yellow with green, pink with green, red with green and brown, …
