“Cinta Pertamaku Pada Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone”

Diambil dari Kisah Nyata

Hmm…Hari ini aku pengen berbagi sama kalian semua lewat postingan di blog ku. Ini kisah nyata lho!!! Alias pengalaman pribadiku sama Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone. Hari gini ya, buuaannyak bangget hape – hape yang lagi rame dijual dipasaran. Mulai dari hape yang cuma bisa sms doank, sampe hape – hape kloningan keluaran negeri seberang. Aku sempet nyoba beragam merk hape. Tapi belum ada satupun yang pas dihatiku. Nyerah deh!
            Eh, pas suatu saat aku liat hape nya temenku Sony Ericsson W380. Sumpah, keren abieezzz...Belom pernah aku liat hape sekeren itu. Apalagi aku tu tipe orang yang suka banget dengerin musik. Kan jadul banget tu kalo masih bawa – bawa walkman yang model nya jadul abis ato bawa – bawa mp3. Ribet lah!!!

            Mendingan pake hape Sony Ericsson W380 yang kayak punya nya temenku. Dan alhasil, aku belilah hape Sony Ericsson W380 ditoko hape. Seneng banget rasanya…hahaahaaa..

            Setelah sampe rumah, ga henti – hentinya aku memandangi hape Sony Ericsson W380 baruku. Bodinya keren, cocok buat gaul bareng temen-temen. Sambil jalan bisa sambil dengerin musik lagu nya Naff “Akhirnya ku Menemukanmu”. Pas banget sama pengalamanku menemukan cinta pertama & terakhirku bersama hape Sony Ericsson W380.

Naff :
Akhirnya ku menemukanmu,
saat hati ini, mulai meragu
Akhirnya ku menemukanmu,
saat raga ini, ingin berlabuh

Ku berharap engkaulah,
jawaban s’gala risau hatiku,
dan biarkan diriku,
mencintaimu hingga ujung usiaku

Selain bisa asik dengerin musik, aku juga bisa foto – foto sesuka hati. Udah gitu, hasil jepretan fotonya bagus lagi. Dijamin ga mengecewakan lah. Wajahku yang cantik ini keliatan lebih cantik lagi.. hahaha… Ga cuman itu aja lho, hape Sony Ericsson W380 juga ada dukungan USB nya jadi selesai foto – foto bisa dimasukin ke computer trus upload deh ke facebook ato twitter. Makin eksis deh aku!

Bener – bener pengalaman berharga dan patut untuk dikenang. Ga bakalan deh pindah ke hape yang lain. Udah jatuh cinta soalnya sama hape Sony Ericsson W380.

My new fashion passion.

I have a new fashion passion. And it comes from the most unlikely source. It’s a figure skimming shift in purple jersey. And I am wearing it today. There’s some thoughtful ruching at the side which creates some fabulously camouflaging drape across the tum and a convincing curve at the waist. It’s got sharply padded shoulders and velvet sleeves and hits at the perfect level; just about knee-length. It arrived in a parcel that looked no bigger than a T-shirt and emerged without a wrinkle which means it will pack like a dream.
 It looked good at a working brunch this morning and I’ll be wearing it to a cocktail do tonight straight from the office. There isn’t a pull or pinch anywhere in it and yet I think it looks pretty sharp and hot, if I say so myself. The litmus test is the office reaction and that was a unanimous ‘wow’ which is why I am blogging this right now.

It’s not from Bond St or Sloane. It’s not from Paris or Milan. Today’s perfect purple dress is from LK Bennett. The reason I am surprised, is that I have pigeon-holed that brand into the workwear category: a place where women who don’t have the luxury of the relaxed dress code we have, must go to buy a 9-5 wardrobe. Something about that makes me anxious: as if there was a risk of some sinister cross contamination if your working wardrobe got muddled up with your weekend one. I’ve always shied away.

But recently I realised that the brand has seriously upped their fashion game. The winter collection has got some fantastic tailored dresses (a hint of Roland Mouret, Victoria Beckham, Antonio Berardi construction) and some chicly feminine cocktail options. I’ve already got four dresses on my list for the summer.

And I am not alone. At the Christian Dior cocktail party at Claridges last week, I cornered a very eminent colleague in a particularly fab, purple and fuschia printed jersey shift. She was making the rest of us, in black, look dull and I wanted her to know that. Where was it from? Was it Lanvin commercial collection perhaps, was it maybe summer collection Etro or a vintage find from a Gucci Cruise line? No, it was L K Bennett.
(This may be workwear, Grazia Girls, but not as we know it.)

Six Questions for Madewell Creative Director Kin Ying Lee

Madewell, J.Crew‘s sister brand, just gets better and better. And a lot of that has to do with Kin Ying Lee, the label’s creative director. Not only is Kin nice, funny, and cool, she also has amazing personal style. So it’s not surprising that she makes the “Madewell girl” appear effortlessly hip.

I got to spend some time with Kin this summer on Madewell’s road trip–where a bunch of editors visited Montauk to just hang out with the brand’s team–and adored her instantly! Luckily, she was nice enough to answer some questions for Fashionista about her life, her career, and what’s next for Madewell. The brand launched its latest denim style, the High Riser, today, and you can pick it up at their Denim After Dark event, which takes place tonight at select Madewell stores across the country.
Fashionista: Tell us about your roots! Where are you from, where did you go to school?
Kin Ying Lee: I’m originally from Hong Kong and moved to the northeast of England when I was six years old. I knew I wanted to be a designer from a young age—I used to sit with my grandma while she was sewing and sketch outfits for her. I went on to study design at Kingston University in Surrey [England].
How long have you been designing for Madewell?
I’ve been at Madewell for five years. (Madewell was founded in 1937 as a workwear company, then relaunched in 2006.) Back then, the design team was made of just an assistant and me.
What’s the best part of your job?
Creating clothes that I love with an amazing group of designers. Like our brand-new High Riser Jeans, which are–drumroll please–debuting today. (Shameless plug: find them at Madewell.com, and in select Madewell stores at our Denim After Dark party). They’re the perfect skinny high-waist fit, very vintage-modern, and we’re all obsessed with them. Another great part of my job: Madewell has such a rich sense of history and heritage—it’s something I continually draw from for inspiration. We have an incredible archive of vintage Madewell denim to reference, and the ability to see the wear and tear of these garments and how they held up thorough generations never ceases to inspire me. And I’m so fortunate that we can travel the world to find inspiration–I’m always amazed by the creativity and sense of serious fashion history in Paris; and in Japan the street style is unparalleled.
If you had to wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It’s hard to pick just one, but if push came to shove I’d go with a pair of vintage-wash slouchy/skinny jeans with a silk blouse and and a bootie. Then I’d toss on a Barbour jacket and accessorize with a pair of rings I got in Japan that represent my two children.

We’re big on movie inspiration here. Do any films inspire your style?
I love the iconic pieces seen in Indiana Jones: the perfect leather jacket, tough boots and menswear-y shirt. When I’m feeling a little homesick, An Education is perfect for a dose of English schoolgirl style. And In the Mood for Love is a perennial favorite—I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and it reminds me of Hong Kong. The style of the clothing in the movie isn’t my style per se, but I love the overall feel of the film, from the storyline to the lighting to the cinematography. And I’m a huge fan of Maggie Cheung.

We know you love food–so do we! What’s your favorite ice cream in the whole world?
Vanilla ice cream from Cincinnati-based Graeter’s (graeters.com). I top it with crushed sea salt and extra virgin olive oil. Sounds weird, but it’s incredible—trust me.

The Future of Fashion Blogging

What IS the future of fashion blogging? Haven’t we just started? It seems like just a few years ago not many people knew what a blog was, nowadays bloggers are making a living, achieving a somewhat celebrity status, and making the blacklist of editors…or are they?

Crush BLog

It's the december season, it's "winter" and it's raining! So many times, my street style sessions are stopped short due to a sudden torrent of watery snow that makes walking on the street difficult. So i head indoors. Yoyo, (not in this picture), is the creative brain and founder of Exhibit. I met her and her equally stylish mother while i was shooting for inSing.com and decided to pop by her store since it was raining.

After getting quite hopelessly lost at Far East (i don't frequent there enough to know my way around haha), i finally found it! That's where i met Angie. Isn't she incredibly stylish? I've been told many times, "you should set up a store!". Other then many various business factors, one of the outstanding reason is that i had to find my store-assistant-sole-mate. One who is not only available but embodies the brand and feel of my shop. Someone who not only assists my customers but inspires them. Only then will i set up a store.

I told Angie how I wish I could find someone like her to run my future store! And I was so glad that she agreed to allow me to take her picture.

Would You Wear… Female Silhouette Printed Clothing

Images of Thom Browne’s SS11 womenswear collection appeared on the internet yesterday, showcasing not only Browne’s covetable designs, but also the staying power of a strange trend. Showing suits printed with female silhouettes, Browne’s Spring 2011 collection is the most recent in a string of designers to create items showcasing the female form.

From Moschino’s vintage blouse seen on Susie Bubble, to YSL’s pendants, Lanvin’s tees, and famously Miu Miu’s SS10 prints, the woman-print has a long heritage, and doesn’t seem to be going away.

The question is: Would you wear this trend or are you leaving the naked silhouettes for the bedroom?
