Fashion tips : How To Stretch Shoes

I don't know about you, but I loooovveee sale. It is of course a hit or miss kind of thing but that's what makes it so interesting. If you see anything that you like and it's for waaayy less price than it should be, it feels like you just won a lottery. I even have to admit that sometimes I feel slightly proud if I have something that's similar to someone else and I got it cheaper. I know, weird right.

But sometimes, things aren't as dreamy as it is. Sometimes the product that you want is not available anymore in your size. This happens a lot with shoe hunting because several fraction of centimeter really makes a huge difference for a comfort fit.

This video will show you 5 different ways to stretch your shoes. Finally! Dreams do come true! But remember, just because you can stretch your new shoes a little bit, does not mean that you can resize it. It will stretch maximum up to 1 shoe size, not more. So dont expect to buy a size 36 if you're a size 39, just because it's 200€ cheaper.


You know these tips from the video is a game changer..

Cat Talks and Catwalks : Alexander McQueen S/S 2015

Each year during every fashion week, Alexander McQueen never seize to surprise me. Either when he was still alive or after he passed and Sarah Burton continues his legacy. Although I prefer the raw crazy savage beauty he presented himself, that Ms. Burton sadly cannot copy, still Ms. Burton deliver the brand correctly. For example, the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection that was inspired by japanese culture. I mean, check out these Sakura Sandals.

Fun Facts About Shoes : American Horror Story(?)

I know, I know, you're all probably wondering, what does the series, American Horror Story, and shoes have in common? The answer is simple, weird foot fetish.

I've been a huge fan of the series since the first season. But the show got me hooked on its final episode for season 3, when the witch was burned and yell "Balenciaga!" as her last word. I mean, we can all relate to that, can we?

For their 4th season, the theme will be about freak shows. And honey, trust me, the teaser images and videos they posted are very disturbing. Like, really disturbing. More so since I have an irrational fear for clowns. :-s

Despite all the disturbing images, there are 2 things that caught my attention.

The first one is this :

Isn't it disturbing, yet painfully beautiful at the same time?

The second one would be this :

I mean, more legs, more room for shoes, am I right?!

Hahahah I know how creepy I might sound, but hey, we're talking about American Horror Story here so I guess it's ok :-p

So if you're just as excited as I am, the show will premiere its 4th season on October 8th, which is exactly a week from today.

You know you are just as excited and disturbed as I am..

Ugly Shoe of The Month : Saint Laurent Patti Ankle Boots

Photo Credit : Net-a-Porter.com


September 2014 Issue

September is said to be the month of fashion and style. Or so I thought, until I saw this Patti ankle boots made by Saint Laurent.

I'm not even going to try and discuss every single details that I hate about this shoe, because it will make this post last for days. And I mean, daaaayysss, dahling!

At 1,395€, I was seriously thinking if this is some kind of a joke for Saint Laurent. But then again, if it's available at net-a-porter.com, it means that somehow somewhere, a poorly-tasted person scroll through the fabulous catalogues of shoes on the internet and stumbled upon this madness, stop for a few seconds, and then clicked the "Buy" button. Argh! I can't bear the thought of it!

If you see this shoe on the street, please do me a favor and call the nearest wildlife animal control operator to get it captured and finally have it euthanised. (The shoes, not the person wearing it, obviously!)

You know you better keep the number of the wildlife animal control operator just in case..

Kisses,

"Oh my god! Are you Lily?!"

Since April this year, I moved from Berlin to Bonn, a small city near Cologne, Germany, for my internship. I left all of my old life and my glamour behind me and started a new life here. So it's been a while since I got in touch with the fashion world. One of the ways to keep my fashion obsession going is by reactivating and writing my blog again. It feels so good to actually be able to escape into my old life back.

I know y'all gonna think that I'm making such a big deal out of it. But I grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia. A metropolitan city, populated with 15 Million people. It was never boring, even sometimes it could be too much. Then I moved to Berlin, which is a lot smaller and quieter than Jakarta, but at least the glamour part is still there.

And now I'm in Bonn, a beautiful city where nobody gives an f about what you're wearing. Clothing is not something you use to show your personality, but only for functional reasons. There are mainly 5 colors that people wear here, black, blue, brown, gray and white. No wonder people are shocked when I came to work wearing bright colored bowties and an orange Ted Baker messenger bag.

Me and my Sis on top of Godesburg Tower in Bonn.
People stared at us the whole time even though we already wore "their" color palette.

Don't get me wrong, the people are extra nice here and the city itself is so beautiful. It's just a lot different from the people in Jakarta or in Berlin. So I struggled for a while and I always kept it in mind that the internship will only last for 6 months and then I'm out of Bonn. But several bad stuff happened to me and I just know that I needed to go back to Berlin for some time, just to clear my mind and calm myself down for a bit. So I went to Berlin

In Berlin, all I wanted to do was just to have fun with my sister and my friends, went to my chill places, party so hard til my legs gave up, and eat as much exotic food as possible (exotic food is really rare in Bonn, so if it exist somewhere, it'll be expensive, which I can't afford with my internship salary).

So on Saturday, August 30th, I planned to meet my sister for a quick snack in Ostkreuz, an area in Berlin, filled with cute cafes and restaurants. So I went there with the S-Bahn and I just sat there and played with my cellphone. Suddenly on the Gesundbrunnen station, I saw a really pretty girl from outside the train window and she went into the train with her boyfriend and they sat across me. She said something to her boyfriend in a british accent english and my jaw dropped then and there.

I could not hold myself and these words just came out of my mouth without control. I said, "Oh my god! Are you Lily?!", which she replied hestitantly with a soft, "Uhm.. Yes."

There she is, sat in front of me in a dirty train station in Berlin, one of my favorite Supermodel in the world, Lily Donaldson. I literally watched all of her Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows, even I kept her spread for Dolce&Gabbana in my room during my highschool, which I stupidly mentioned to her. I now realized how creepy that might sound. :-/

I could not help but to fangirl in front of her and her boy, Cyprien Gaillard. Cyprien even giggled a lot everytime i said oh god oh god. I must've looked like a crazy person.

We took a pic together and talked a bit but then I decided to stop and keep my mouth shut because I don't wanna annoy my idol. She then changed her seats and put on some hoodie and curled, which made me feel bad because I don't want her to feel unsafe, it's just that I couldn't help it that I adore her so much.

Look at my face. Pure fangirl bloated face.
After the "happy incident", I went home smiling as big as it could possibly get. It felt like I finally got my glamour back, even though I know it doesn't make any sense. But anyway, I hope that after I move back again to Berlin in October, I'll get to meet my other idols. (I'll meet GaGa on her ArtRave concert in Berlin in October also. Already so excited ^_^).

You know you're jealous of me now..

Kisses,
