Smart is Sexy

I hate to surround my self with the same environment for a too long period. It will shape me to be a boring person with only one point of view. Hence, while I can I like to spare my time to hang with people from different ages, different majors, different jobs, it helps me widen my knowledge which I would not easily earn at school. Beside that, I like to surround my self with good books, good movies, and last but not least good characters.

Speak about characters, there are a lot of female character which is not only undeniably beautiful but also unbelievably smart, and not to mention independent, brave, and strong. Not only in the movie do this character exist, but also in real world. Now let us take a look at how they look and what's my favorite quote from them.

"Destiny is for losers. It's just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen." - Blair Waldorf

(Audrey Tatou in Coco Before Chanel Movie)

"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future." - Coco Chanel 

Oh and slowly but sure the way they think makes me want to follow the way they dress. Their intelligence makes me believe in them. It is not hard to make someone a role model when they not only have their modest and beautiful figure, but also a beautiful mind. So when looking for clothes and in doubt, I will try to remember how this favourite characters of mine will dress and it always helps! Because their character is so strong I could easily remember the way they dress. And this is few amongst a lot of my favourite outfit that resembles my favourite characters I found while I browse through

Seeing that dress reminds me of Blair Waldorf. She always dress so modest, classic, and sometimes preppy. If Blair Waldorf see this dress she definitely will choose it! Look at the classic cutting and simple form of the dress, yet the detailed pattern make it stand out.

Coco Chanel, the one who created little black dress, known as the woman who changed the world of fashion. Once you look at her you could easily understand that she is simple, practical, and elegant, not to mention intelligent! But one thing that caught my attention the most is the way Coco is so independent as a woman. And so when in doubt I will automatically think about her! Now take a look at those look above; a simple pencil skirt in off white, simple blouse in navy, the long lasting off white pumps, and elegant pearl choker! In an instant it will create an elegant and fierce image once we combined it with a smart and beautiful mind.

Now you wondering where did I find those look? Well, you could easily found those looks above at, which is a member of Amazon group. Shopbop provides a lot of designer goods and I never thought that I could easily find a whole clothing from top to toe which suits me best only in one site, but did it and I am a happy shopper :-D

Screw Business as Usual

T shirt (Unbranded), Skirt ( Tailor-made), Shoes (Wondershoe)

No matter how busy I am, I always have one rule I have to do and never allow my self to have excuses to not do this one thing: read book. I feel book helps me to get a wider point of view in a magical way. How about you?  Currently, I am reading Screw Business as Usual by the one and only Virgin Empire owner, Richard Branson and there is this one quote I really love and always remember: 

"Humour can often be a far better way to change behaviour than just trying to scare the hell out of people"

Summer Sunshine

Now that holiday is waiting to be spent, traveling is one lesson form I'm always eager to learn. Some people may say you can forget style for a while on traveling since it is more comfortable and easy breezy in short and tees. But for me, style is character. I like to keep my style because it shows who I am. Style is not only about fashion, it is a form of my mind which is open to public and even stranger could easily calculate.

So, since I like too keep in style while traveling, I have been browsing some online website to search for something to wear in my traveling journey. And guess what? I stumble into this choices and I can't decide which to buy oh I want to buy them all so bad!

Well, which one you think is the best for me? Can you help me to choose? Anyway, you can directly click the brands above and you will directed to the site where I found them, Shopbop is a part of Amazon group which provide us a wide range of clothing and designer brands. Well, well, well you probably heard a lot about site like this, but this site is not the same, at all! I used to be afraid just to browse through international website since I know that it will be difficult to deal with imported clothing in our beloved country, Indonesia. But, I just found out that Shopbop is known for its great customer service so there's no need for me to be afraid because I can always contact them for whatever question I have in my mind. Beside that, Shopbop have their own designated carrier in a lot of countries, including Indonesia, which will take care of our taxes and custom duties! How cool is that! All I have to do is one easy click on the item I love, check my chart out, then choose delivery method with Express Delivery with Shopbop Global and directly pay my import taxes together with my shopping item and tadaaa! my package will come to my door. It looks like it's such a comfortable and easy way of shopping because I don't need to deal with customs officer anymore since Shopbop place their designated carrier for  me, oh thank you Shopbop! You can read about this term HERE.

So, from few of my style preferences above, are you already able to judge how my character is? Well, I love simplicity and basic stuff. I believe once simplicity and basic stuff combined perfectly with a contained mind and strong point of view, the style itself will stand out and no luxurious things can compete with it.
