Apparel After Dark + Giveaway!

I know, I know.

It seems like I've been slacking a lot on the blogging side of things and to my defence, it is all for this one big project that my partner and I have been planning for the past half year, pretty much the biggest and precious thing in my life right now: )

Apparel After Dark is co-created by me and my best friend of nearly 10 years since high school, Agnes Kartikasari. This brand is basically focused on creating simple quality pieces that are long lasting and versatile; meaning that you could literally mix and match anything out of the collection together and it'll still have our brand's character. Our collection will have printed t-shirts, sweaters and matching sport pants that are unisex, but our ladies wear section is filled with structured skirts and pants, casual shirts, a lot of crops and a lot of faux leather!

What is street wear? 
The term street wear itself means, just the different eclectic styles that we find on people around the world. All these people (including you) have different upbringings, culture, inspirations and people they look up to thus, creating an endless mix of wardrobe that's special in its own way. We know that street wear could mean anything and it is obviously a huge term to put under a brand but we are a street wear brand according to Apparel After Dark. This is how we see street wear and this is our character. 

I'm wearing my Apparel After Dark t-shirt, blue tartan skirt from The Editor's Market, flats from Charles and Keith, and my love: the mini Pashli 3.1 Philip Lim. 

Apparel After Dark will be holding a launch party: Fashion Showcase on the 22nd of February 2014 next month and we would love you to come out and join this celebration of apparel beauty! (This event is invitation only)

Hello, 2014!

Happy New Year 2014, everyone!

I can't believe that it has already been half a year since I first started this blog, and even though it's still nothing compared to everyone else's work I am so content with the way things turn out and are about to be. So! My new year's resolution is simple; work hard, play hard, and don't forget to kick ass, 2014 is going to be my biggest year yet! I've got so many things planned for 2014 and I cannot wait to share it with you all. The next post will be my first ever giveaway and it will be very exciting because it coincides with the biggest project I'm working on so keep in tune!

I've been in Singapore for the past week because I had to accompany my sister there for her first days in SIM University and it's been very fun and uplifting to see her grow and interact in the early stages of her adulthood:') She's my love and she's my little baby sister, I know she'll be great but I hate seeing her grow up so fast! Goodluck little sissy, I love you and you'll do great! Say hello to the girl behind all of my amazing pictures, Nadya Bunjamin. 

Wearing H&M casual graphite oversized tshirt, random black jeans, Charles and Keith flats, and my new 3.1 Phillip Lim mini Pashli bag that I got from my parents for Christmas:) Thank you so much, guys!
