DUSTY

IMG_5893

"I fell out of you.. Now let me find my way back."
Time is passing quickly, while I had stocked myself with unedited/untouched pictures of daily outfit and travel. I have been quite busy lately with work in general and working on some projects (which you can see on instagram). I had a bad cold, cough and fever all at the same time couple days ago but thank God I have recovered. 
Now, why DUSTY? I have realized that I had fell out of focus on certain things, one of them is why I started this personal space of mind. I haven't been really put my mind in posting more about personal style and fashion; that I discover some new hobbies including eating out (training my taste-bud), amateur photography of food or other things. Truthfully, it has scattered my focus.

However, after having some time to sit down and retreated the dusty files, I am very pleased to post outfit diary again.  
I (finally) had a chance to wear this Denish Top I bought from Leonyevelyn-Clothing. It was shipped from Indonesia and I could not be happier on this masterpiece. This Denish Top is actually the first Batik piece that I owned. Batik is Indonesian's traditional fabric (read more here). I am very happy to finally own one because as Indonesian, I am supposed to promote my own country's culture, ain't I?

In this chance, I decided to mix it with denim skirt (in the mood of living in metropolitan city without dismissing the politeness of  Batik's ethic code) for a day out in the city. I can see myself wearing this top quite often on formal occasion in the future or I might need  more pieces of Batik :)

La Force Feminine

IMG_6596


May we be them.

The word 'feminist' stands for a strong move by women to fight for our own rights. It has been years and years of lame excuses for not letting women do what they are capable of doing. Well, as a person who lives in a big city (now), I have to admit that I am lucky enough to be able to do things that I am passionate about, to pursue my dreams, to have education and ability to express myself through this free platform and the freedom of speech. Nowadays, people take granted for these things when others (on the other side of the world) would trade anything to have the privilege. Especially women.

Are you a strong woman?

This question itself pop-up in my mind when I receive this sign from Inspirationery.co. I thought to my self "Wow, what a powerful statement!" but really, how do I define the meaning of "Strong Woman"?

Then I came to this conclusion,

In my personal opinion, a strong woman is someone who is capable to stand for themselves independently, value themselves and know their values. Someone who believe in themselves, someone who know their rights and how to protect them. And the list goes on.......

Some of us are considered lucky. Some of our friends in the third world do not have this privilege. Some of these people do not have education, especially girls. There are many factors that unable them to receive education.

Nevertheless, in raising this issue, Inspirationery has launch #LaForceFeminine, a collection to celebrate feminine strength which aims to inspire women locally to have courage to follow their dreams, while empowering them to create global change through their purchase. 
Inspirationery also relentlessly passionate about the power of women to make the world a better place, which is why 50% of the profit is donated to empower women and girls through education and leadership programs run through the amazing charitable organisation such as Care Australia and Plan International.


The collection contains notebooks and signs. Available to purchase here : Inspirationery.co
