So you’ve probably heard.. me and my boyfriend started a new project: we started a YouTube channel! As you know, I always have passion for fashion since forever, and my boyfriend has a passion in photography and videography. And finally, we’ve came to the idea of channeling our passions into something creative and fresh.

After a long discussion, we decided to start our own YouTube channel, called “Backstage and Beyond”. The reason behind the name is we wanted this channel to be our place to share our deep love of fashion and photography, to share you our dreams and passions, and show that whatever your dream is, there is a lot of things ‘behind the scene’ that you should probably be prepared of. And beyond our dreams, there are lots of bigger things that wait along the journey. 

“Backstage and Beyond” will let you know our journey. The baby step until one day we make our dreams come true. As a passionate team, we are really excited to share you our passions! You know, people always love what other people passionate about. 

Because this is what relationship should be. The one that supports each other’s passion, the one that always listens when it gets hard, the one that brings out the best in you. The one that keeps you going and keeps you sane. 

So please enjoy our very first video up in our YouTube channel. Easily search for “Backstage and Beyond Indonesia” or click here for full video. Feedback, comments, or ideas are more than welcome!

The Ultimate List of a 23-Year-Old Girl’s Style Savers

Well I was thinking about giving you a list of 2017 trends but forgive my lazy ass, it is probably too late lol. So I’m just gonna write about anything that I want (again), which is: Style Savers – the ultimate guide for your style when you are so lazy to get dressed.  It is a topic I’ve been asked about – how to make your simple style look fabulous and effortless without being too much. Well, for that you don’t have to master all the fashion knowledge, you only have to know the perfect style-savers for your style! 

Remember those days when you don’t feel like dressing up? – It’s when the only thing you want to wear is something loose, flowy, comfy, and yet you still want to get the effortlessly stylish look. So here is my take on getting dressed without putting too much effort, and still get the fashionable set of outfit! Take a look of these 4 top style-savers:

Add scarves
I know I’ve been saying this a lil too much but I could not handle not to tell you guys too add pretty scarf to maximize your look! It will change your tees-and-jeans to a whole new fashionable look! Tips: If you’re wearing basic tees, wear colorful or pattern scarves, and if you wear colorful or printed tees, grab your warm-colored scarf.  Scarves are my number one style savers! 

Accessorize it up
If you don’t like to wear scarves, adding some accessories will got you covered. Don’t wear too much, one or two bangles with a pair of earrings will be enough. Or, you can also wear your favorite necklace with those pretty pendants to spark up your look.

Play with ‘unique’ pieces
And it’s also okay if you don’t like wearing too much accessories. Then my tips for you will be: play with unique pieces! Get yourself a basic shirt or tees with that low V-neck to show your neckline, or grab a basic tee with rough cut to get the attention. You can also play with some details like ruffle, pleats, or lace. Or perhaps, the shirt with the unique sleeve! 

Complete with cute bags
Final tips, don’t forget to wear your favorite cute bags! If you don’t want to look too much, wear a basic sling-bag for a casual look, or a pretty clutch for a formal look that match your shoes and you’re good to go! – To save you some time, try to own more-neutral-toned bags as your style-savers, so they will get along with all your clothes!

This year, I got a chance to witness two of the beautiful shows in Indonesia Fashion Week 2017! Here is a glimpse of the fun I had in IFW’17!

Ratimaya Cita Nusantara
A collaboration of 17 Local Designers, what can I say? It was such a wrap! From the traditional to the edgy, these designers offer a wide range of styles – including men collections! One of my favorite was Lovely Zia, with the navy tone and perfect modern silhouette. Another cool collection that stole the attention is from Erdan! Pretty lines of red hue and interesting cuts, one can not resist!

Sekar Jagad Banyuwangi
Inspired from the uniqueness of Banyuwangi’s Traditional Batik, this show gave a preview of how Batik can turns into a modern piece and very beautiful dailywear. Not forget to mention, a ‘touchy’ closing with national song that forever stay in the audience’s hearts. Thumbs up for Irma Lumiga!
