Dry Rice Grain Necklace from Environmental Jewelry

Suka banget sama brand satu ini. Unik dan ramah lingkungan. Bagaimana tidak, perhiasan yang mereka tawarkan terbuat dari butiran beras kering. Yup, beras. Sama seperti beras yang setiap hari kita makan.

20161007_065204As someone who graduated from Biology major and love fashion, I really  have a soft spot in my heart for a sustainable fashion, ecofashion, or  fashion with nature-based.

When I encountered this brand from one of fashion week event in Jakarta, I just fall in love at first sight. Environmental Jewelry, that what was written there. A jewelry brand which all their jewelry carefully handcrafted using dry rice grain. Yup, rice, the same rice that we used to see everyday, ate every single day.

Unique. Timeless. Interesting.

My first impression of their jewelry at the first sight. While thinking how pretty it will be to wear the necklaces, bracelets, or even rings. Unfortunately not the earrings since I wear hijab.

And they are, very uniquely pretty to wear. Pretty much as a statement add to any simple outfit. Now, they are one of my favorites.



Unique Necklaces by Schonmoi

Jatuh cinta sama aksesoris atau perhiasan dari merk local bernama Schonmoi or schon. Produk yang mereka tawarkan sangat unik. Pertama, sebagian besar terbuat dari kayu. kedua, model dan bentuknya bisa dibilang vintage atau retro. Jadi, kalau memang ingin bergaya oldies, retro or vintage, Schonmoi ini bisa jadi pilihan utama.

I like jewelry. But as a woman wearing veil, I can not wear as much or all kind of jewelry I want. Most of the time, I add jewelry such as long necklace, rings or bracelet that have uniqueness.

One of them is necklaces from a brand called Schon or Schonmoi. They focuses on the products of home décor, jewelry, accesories, and other fashion products. What I really love about their necklaces are almost all of them made of wood. So it can pretty much called as part of ecofashion.

Next, the design are unique. A little bit retro or vintage. So when you wanted to add some vintage or retro style on your daily wear or style, Schonmoi is one of the best choices out there.

Shades of Peach


Welcoming Silangit, North Sumatera, with wide open arms.

Wearing square paris Linen for my hijab and linen pants. Colorful yet soft shirt by Dian Pelangi. With marie claire flat shoes fit in my feet. Simple and modest. All in shades of peach color.
Memulai perjalanan saya ke Danau Toba, Sumatera Utara dengan outfit yang simple dan modest. Plus nyaman dipakai. Outfit yang akan menemani saya menghabiskan 1 hari pertama mengeksplor keindahan silangit, muara, dan Danau Toba.

Cotton and Linen for Hijab Summer Outfit

That day was a hot kinda day. So I decide to wear an outfit that couldn’t make me suffer throughout the whole day. A hijab summer outfit, well kind of.

Cotton or linen,  pick between them was my first choice. Couldn’t choose in between so both were wore.

An oversize gingham patterns cotton shirt with different length between the back and front side. A simple linen pants. Both in pastel colors. Wore with chiffon scarf and all settle off to the shore.

Add a simple necklace from environmental jewellry and a thong from rubi than it is done.

Perfect for hot day into sea. Never been comfortable while exploring 3 islands in a day.

Nyaman banget pake yang namanya baju dari bahan katun atau linen. Apalagi buat hijaber kaya saya yang ingin mengeksplor 3 pulau dalam satu hari. Panas, berangin, dan sesekali terkena cipratan air laut.

My Kind of Daily Look with Linen

Linen fabric became my favorite since forever. Just see my post about for the love of linen. Lots of my clothes especially for daily looks made of Linen fabric. It just perfect for our tropical climate.

Kemeja oversize plus celana yang sama-sama dibuat dari bahan linen, sungguh nyaman dipakai sehari-hari. Bahan linennya sendiri saya dapatkan di Mayestik di Toko Fancy, which is saat itu sedang sale. Bahan yang biasanya 1 m dibanderol 110 ribu langsung turun harga menjadi 68 ribu. Awesome! Setelah dijahit, hasilnya sangat memuaskan. Tidak kalah dengan outfit linen dari rakuten, zara, or brand ternama lainnya.

Peplum Top and Batik Skirt for Graduation Day

It was graduation day for my kiddos who spent a year with me. They will continue their journey of learning in elementary program. What a sad and also happy day.

So the dresscode is Red and Black. I actually didn’t plan to wear this outfit. But then again, there I was, standing in a fabric store called Mumbai Textile and Hash right in Mayestik. What an unplanned situation. Finally bought 3 metres of diamond chiffon and 2 metres of batik print.

Voila! A peplum top with a batik skirts which I just literally wrapped it along my body became my outfit of the day. And there I was, get an Oscar for it. Hahaha, blaaaaah, just kidding.

For the Love of Linen

for the love of linen 1

Linen merupakan salah satu jenis bahan yang menjadi favorit saya. Dibandingkan katun (cotton), saya lebih memilih linen menjadi pilihan utama. Harganya memang terbilang cukup mahal, namun kenyamanan pada saat memakainya membuat saya tidak perlu berpikir ulang untuk membeli bahan Linen ini. Ditambah lagi, teksturnya yang lembut dan tampilannya yang terlihat sederhana tapi elegan.

Bahan linen ini memang mudah kusut dan bahkan terlihat ‘lusuh’ ketika dipakai, tapi justru disitulah kelebihannya, meskipun kusut alias “lecek” tidak akan menjadi masalah karena memang seperti itulah sifat alami linen. Untuk saya yang beranggapan menyetrika baju adalah pekerjaan yang paling berat di seantero jagad pekerjaan rumah tangga, Linen menjadi pilihan yang sangat pas.

Selain itu, karena iklim tropis yang menyelimuti negara kita, udara Jakarta yang panas dan seringkali membuat kita mudah berkeringat, maka Linen dengan sifatnya dingin saat dipakai, ringan, berpori, dan menyerap keringat sekaligus mudah kering kembali tanpa meninggalkan bau yang tidak sedap, sangat cocok untuk pilihan berbusana sehari-hari.
