I love accessories, especially the unique one. They add more colors to our outfit. They became a center of attention if we wore a simple plain outfit they become more like statement of our outfit.

Although there are so many brands out there, I prefer brands from local. Let’s just say that I support local. They have unique design, good quality, with reasonable price.

Here are some of local brands that I adore. Especially for their necklaces, which are wearable for me as hijaber. If you are looking for local accessories brand to step up your outfit game, they are some of the best out there.

Massicot by Amanda Matsuri and Ramdhan Muhammad

What I love about Massicot is that each pendulum (stone) does not have the same visual and it always one of a kind. It is a statement. It doesn’t matter if you wear a plain shirt, T-shirt, or even dress, because a piece of massicot accessories will definitely step up your plain outfit.

Schonmoi by Vedca Maria Orissa

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 or sustainable fashion. The design also very unique. They are a little bit retro or vintage. So when you wanted to add some nice touch of vintage or retro style to step up your outfit game, Schon is one of the best choice out there.

Antyk butyk

All I could say about antyk butyk is not boring at all. Their accessories design or material often amazed me. The slight of culture can be see in each of their piece. You can look edgy, unique, funky, elegant, vintage, and feminine with one of their accessories in your outfit.

Environmental jewelry by Ega & Julia (EJ)

A jewelry brand which all their jewelry carefully handcrafted using dry rice grain. Yes, rice, the same rice that we used to see everyday and ate every single day. Some piece of rice add to your outfit will definitely step up your outfit game. Especially if you are a nature lover or looking for a sustainable jewelry.

Eden by sight by Jessica Saputro and Handy Yonathan

They were known for their natural gemstone in each of their accessories. Each of them are unique because of their raw nature. The design is simple and the gemstone that they use are colorful and pretty which make us look elegant.

Tealabel

If you want to look as pretty as if you are going to attend some tea party, just put on one of their accessories and you’ll definitely be center of attention. They really can mix kinds of rope with beads, shapes resin, or tassel into a beautiful and unique piece.

From Tiny Islands

Just like their brand name, they do look tiny and simple. Made mostly of silver and gold plated is perfect to add a statement to your outfit. If you are looking for an elegant yet not to eye catching, they are probably the best.

Atelier Pedra by Emiria Larasati

For edgy, classic, and elegant looks to step up your outfit game, Atelier Pedra offers a a simple yet detail accessories made of gold, silver, and stone. I love how simple their design look like.

Klar by Talita Natalia

A brand which use acrylic as their main material. Looks edgy, structured, and solid. They really did justice for their philosophy which is ‘a silent statement.’

Moth Jewellery

Their accessories is beyond unique. Color pencils, literally, on your plain, simple, or effortlessly outfit will mostly gain any attention out there. Not to mention, their unique and creative design. You’ll definitely want to have one of their accessories after you see them.

Harry Ibrahim

One of my 2 favorite in these show part 2. Koleksi Harry Ibrahim sangat indah, elegan, dan mewah. Tepat seperti tema yang diusungnya yaitu Royale Glamorous.

Saya bisa membayangkan gaun-gaun tersebut dipakai para selebritis dalam moment awards atau red carpet. What a very beautiful dress and look awfully expensive. Kunjungi www.harryibrahim.com untuk tahu lebih banyak.

Chossy Latu

The other favorite from 2. As much as I love Batik, I also love Songket. Songket member kesan mewah dan glamor. Selama ini songket dikenal masyarakat hanya sebagai kain yang difungsikan sebagai rok.

Akan tetapi, koleksi terbaru Chossy Latu ini memberi inspirasi baru bagaimana memanfaatkan songket menjadi busana elegan yang bisa dipakai oleh orang-orang di perkotaan. Dengan tema ‘Songket in The City’ (which remind me of Sex & the City series). Dan saya, langsung memutar otak bagaimana memodifikasinya agar bisa dipakai wanita berhijab seperti saya.

In this show, I just love the whole package. Glamour collection, perfect background music and beautiful accessories, and perfect atmosphere.

 Acakacak by LPTB Susan Budihardjo

Para desainer alumni LPTB Susan Budihardjo ini menampilkan koleksi terbaru mereka bertema Camio 2. Kesan ‘acak-acakan,’ minimalis, kaku, dan futuristik terasa kental di semua koleksinya. Menyaksikan fashion show acakacak ini seakan-akan membawa kita jauh ke suatu tempat masa depan.

Dinara Abdullina

Fashion show passion ini ditutup oleh koleksi terbaru dari Samidel Dinara Abdullina yang berasal dari Kazakhstan. Busana yang ditampilkan sebagian besar berupa gaun berpotingan A-line atau babydoll dengan warna putih, hitam, biru dan merah. Yang paling menarik perhatian saya adalah motif kain yang digunakan, pola berlubang-lubang namun bukan brokat. Unik, If I may say.

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.
