Hauls & Freebies : NOVEMBER 2011

3:37:00 AM

Okay so to continue my long-overdue "New Things in My Wardrobe" post, I split my October hauls on yesterday's post and now I will be doing the November post.

I actually made a mistake on yesterday's post. Some of the items featured on October's hauls are supposed to be November's hauls so the Pantene Pro V Intensive Treatment, the Marks & Spencers Moisture Rich Hand Wash, all of the Jakarta Fashion Week goodies and the Montego Bay sandals as well as the Jordana taupe shoes from Payless are supposed to be in this November's hauls. The only Payless haul during October was the Silver Eden flat shoes which my MIL bought me. So I had edited my yesterday's post and move all of the above mentioned items to today's post. So here are my November's purchases and freebies:

Goodies I got from Jakarta Fashion Week:
ISIS tote bag + JFW 2012 pin, Mango tote bag, Sarinah notebook, Kerastase Resistance series samples (lots of 'em!), L'oreal Hair Spa Nourishing Creambath and Energizing Scalp Lotion.
If you remember I got all these freebies from the Jakarta Fashion Week 2011/2012 event. I posted about these freebies here. I gave the Kerastase Resistance sample bundles to my cousin because it was intended for damaged and dry hair while mine is oily and not dry at all. And below are some details of the products that I have used:
I really love the Mango tote bag, especially because of the color! Black and pink is one of my all-time favorite combo!

 Samples from Biocell and Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa
Among the samples are toning lotion, gel mask, and peeling gel from Biocell and 3 tubes of Green Coconut Milk Conditioner from Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa. I got these in my souvenir bag from the Wolipop & Bank Mandiri "Edgy Style" fashion show.

A garment fabric from Cirebon
This is also a freebie I got from my sister in law's husband's mother. Well, technically it is from my sister in law's mother in law. Hahaha the connection is pretty confucing, no? LOL
So anyway this is a very pretty colorful fabric from Cirebon (West Java). It has a very distinctive pattern with bright pastel colors such as pink, purple, green, and orange, all in one fabric. I figured this must look cute in a dress so I plan to make this fabric into a dress! Well of course I won't be the one making it because you know I don't have any seamstress skill whatsoever ;P but I will take this to my tailor and have her turn this pretty fabric into a dress (Note: tailor services are mostly affordable here in Indonesia so it is very common to buy fabrics and then go to the tailor to make custom-made clothes).

Marks & Spencer Moisture Rich Hand Wash in China Blue
I was surprised to see the price of Marks & Spencer's body care range when I browse through their store one afternoon at Grand Indonesia, I thought they were expensive like more than IDR 100.000 each. But it turns out that their price are actually mostly under IDR 100.000 ! Since I didn't bring much cash left because I already spent it for my lunch and taxi that day, so I only bought this hand wash (IDR 59000), thinking of putting it in our basin in the future bathroom so our guests can use it. I chose the "China Blue" because we plan our future bathroom to have a blue theme, and because this one has a great scent and not too "florals" which hubby K would think too girly ;P

 Pantene Pro V Intensive Treatment Total Care
I am now using this as a hair conditioner, the previous conditioner I used is the Sunsilk Hair Conditioner for Black hair, but I thought it didn't give any special results for my hair so right now I am in a phase where I tried every hair conditioner that I find interesting ;P

 Payless Montego Bay "Noudidnt" in Berry
Payless Fioni "Johanna" in taupe
As I told you in my October's hauls I have been in "Payless crazy" mode lately ;) I'm so glad we now have Payless and I have been there twice in my first month, and by the end of the month I already have 3 footwear and 1 sunglasses from Payless. Oh Payless how I love thee...

 Peach lace dress
I received another garment from my friend to wear as a "uniform dresscode" or a coordinated outfit on her wedding. It's a popular gesture here to do that, it's almost the same as a bride giving her bridesmaids the same coordinated dresses or a bride choosing a specific color for her bridesmaids to wear as a "uniform dresscode" at the reception. Here we gave the family and close friends (in substitute of bridesmaids) the same clothing garment so that each of them can go to their tailor and everyone will turned out at the reception wearing the same garment as "uniform" to differentiate them from the guests.
So anyway I received a lace brocade fabric in peach, and I gave my tailor a picture from a catalog, but she make it a little different by adding a V waistline and shorten the sleeves. Although it didn't turned out exactly like I had in mind, I thought the end result is pretty cute ;) - So the fabric was free but I paid the tailor to make the dress and therefore this one goes into the Purchases list.

And my purchases from eBay this month:
Floral Chiffon Maxi Dress
A very pretty Korean Maxi Dress which I got for only around $7 :)
It has an empire waist line with smocked stitching in the chest area which I think is great for petites like me. It's chiffon and has a lining underneath, the color is white with green florals theme. I wore it to the Jakarta Fashion Week back in November.

A floral hair fastener and a sparkly bow hair clip.
These two items are also from my eBay purchases this month. These two are from different eBay sellers, I just received them at around the same time.
This floral hair clip / fastener was really cheap and that's why I bought it. It has many color options but the seller didn't let us choose the color so they send it in random colors. Well at first I thought it's kinda exciting because of the "surprise" factor, you dont know what color would you get. I was actually hoping to get the pale pink one but then I got this yellow one in my package. I'm not sure whether I would wear this because it's just a little bit too bold for my taste. I mean, it already has a jumbo size, PLUS it's yellow! So I don't know, maybe I just wear it to special occasions like wedding parties and such...but I'm still not sure..

While the floral hair clip above has jumbo size, this sparkly diamante bow knot hair clip is cutely small. I love how it gives a little something special especially on black hair like mine. I can wear this for everyday look or for special occasions, but it couldn't hold too much hair though so I only use it for small sections around my bangs or side swept area.

Another earring display!
I bought a new earring display again from eBay. Ha! If you read my October's "New Things in My Wardrobe" post yesterday I featured an earring display that I bought from eBay for a relatively cheap price. But it wasn't enough to hold all of my earrings collection so I need another display. And so I went to browse some other cheap earrings display on eBay and found another one slightly cheaper.
I chose this one because it's cheaper and smaller but unlike the previous one that has big hollow parts in-between the holes line that makes my smaller dangly earrings kept falling into the hollow part and makes it hard to reach, this one has no hollow part at all. This one is just a solid little plastic display, so I can put my smaller dangly earrings on this one and put my studs and longer earrings on the other one. See below for size comparison:
