[Outfit Diary] : A Super Late Post

9:38:00 PM

Oh my, it's been too long since I updated this blog (>_<)
The truth is....Life just gets in the way.. I got many things that needed my attention and my priority were towards something else. I may also got stuck with a writer's block and found no spirit to type anything.. But here I am now, with a new energy, and hopefully I can write regularly again.

I'm also trying to figure out how to turn this blog into something new and fresh. Or I might be thinking of starting another blog to starts fresh again. I don't know, I'm still not sure... 

But anyway, I thought I'm just gonna post about simple things today, such as my previous ootd for Ied day. Yes, I know it's been a long time since Ied day has passed... But I had some good pictures and I want to save them here on my blog for personal diary (^_^)

I celebrated Ied at two places, in Jakarta and Bandung. We went to Bandung on the day before Ied and we stayed with my husband's family at the Savoy Homann Hotel, a historic hotel that has been built since the 1800s ! You can read about my review of the hotel HERE (the post is in Bahasa Indonesia).

It was a privileged for me to be able to stay at such a historical hotel! I love history so obviously anything historical attracts me to the very core. I was also very lucky to have stayed at the room with the curved wall. I always think that the curved wall is very unique everytime I passed the hotel from the street. And I just couldn't believed my luck when they placed us in the curved room! (click the link above to read and see more pics of the hotel).


For the Jakarta - Bandung trip I already prepared my new floral jumpsuit which I'm planning to upload here soon because it's so darn cute! But then we were told that we would go straight to one of our aunt's place for dinner, straight from Jakarta. So I canceled wearing the jumpsuit and wore this maxi pleated dress that I paired with the lace blouse I bought from Metro - a combination which I thought would be more suitable for the family dinner compared to wearing a jumpsuit ;p



The next day we did the Ied prayer at the front area of the hotel parking spot. I wore a simple tunic dress for Ied prayer. I love this embroidered dress which I called my Moroccan dress (^o^). My mom bought one too, but in a different color. We decided to be twins for Ied day. Mom bought the soft grey one while I chose this teal one below. I was gonna buy the white one but mom said the material was too thin so it could reflect my silhouette in broad daylight. So I went with my second choice which is this beautiful teal one.

My sis in law bought the same dress later on, so we all could be twins/triplets on Ied day (^_^) She chose the black one which I think is also beautiful because the embroidery looks very vibrant against the dark color of the dress. 



Then for the celebration I changed my outfit to my new sheer kaftan tunic which I bought online :) I bought it from one of the Instagram store and I think the price is not that expensive compared to other kaftans, and it also came with a matching pashmina!

I'm happy that the pashmina has a darker shade of brown so it adds color to the soft pastel brown of the kaftan. I also like that it has a hidden hook on the front collar so I can close it up for a decent look, or open the hook for a slightly more casual look.

Some of my cousins commented that they are afraid to buy kaftan because usually kaftans are very long. Well my secret is to ask the seller first about the length of the kaftan, that way you can get a glimpse on how it would look on you. For my petite frame this kaftan is a bit long but I can manage it by wearing some heels ;)



I also got one more kaftan dress for second day of Ied celebration from another Instagram store. Well actually this one below might be more like a dress than a kaftan, but I always like the "faux-cape" style that were all around the runway and the fashion world a while ago, so when I found this dress I was very intrigued to buy it. It wasn't that expensive too..

I love how the sleeves cut open like a faux-cape and I love the color too. I feel like a queen when I'm wearing it, Lol... But now I'm a bit concerned because this dress looks very regal and I don't know where I'm gonna wear it except for the very rare "grand" occasion such as exclusive wedding party invitation held in exclusive hotels. But we only accept those kind of invitations like maybe perhaps 1-2 times a year ? Oh well... Maybe when I feel like sitting on the throne I'll wear it for fun (^o^)



How about you? 
Do you have a dress that you feel you're not gonna wear because it's a bit "too much" / "too fancy" / "too sexy" ? ;p


Hugs and Kissies,
