Hijab Style: Midi Dress (Clozette x LOVE BONITO)

     Wearing midi dress with hijab is something you can commonly see nowadays. Some hijabi usually pairs it with legging, or stocking, or even jeans to cover the legs part. I don't know if you notice this, but I realize that kind of style make you look shorter. I already short in real life and I don't want to look any more shorter than that. Imagine this. J is short if compared to his friends, and he is still much taller than me. Can you imagine how short I am now? Midi dress, especially the up knee ones, is supposed to make you look taller (if you don't wear hijab). I used to wear a midi dress a lot just before I decided to wear hijab. But since I started to wear hijab, I kinda avoid wearing that thing again.
     When Clozette offers me a collaboration project with LOVE BONITO, I immediately think that maybe it's the time to start wearing a midi dress just like old times. Because let's admit, their midi dresses collection are beyond beautiful. When it's arrived in front of my door, I literally jumped in joy. The most perfect lace dress I've ever seen. The material is amazing and it flows down my body beautifully. 

Ruffles. And a Thought (again)

Do you have some kind of style you are currently addicted to? Because I do. Mine is the ruffle style. Whether it's on my sleeve, my shoulder, anywhere. I love it and I'll choose it over and over again. (Just like I love J and will choose him over and over again. Haha it's a weird metaphor). To have the ruffle details on my pants? Oooh! Definitely yes! To be honest, I already lost count on how many outfits in my closet that has ruffle details on it. 

Midnight Thought

     It's 23:53 here. I've been yawning for a while now. But I don't really want to sleep anytime soon. And my mind wanders back to the time when I was in college. Surrounded by a lot of friends that actually nowhere to be seen right now. Not in real life or in social media. Not that they don't have any social media but we just never really stay in touch despite a lot of platforms we have, saying that we are friends. And we are still friends indeed. Just don't really try to stay in touch.
     Or "I" do not really try to stay in touch with them. For a reason that I think is enough for me to make a decision to stay away. Because lately, we are no longer friends through thick and thin. Life happens and we don't really want to get involved in each other's problems anymore. It's just beginning to feel like, "call me when you want to hang out!" and never "call me if you have some problems!"
     There's this one time that I had a problem and literally cried for help. And nobody's listening. Or maybe, they pretend they never listen. Or they think my depression is some kind of joke. Forcing me to talk to them but then, never really think it's a serious matter. 

So I left. I love them still but I left. And I am not sorry about that :(

The Ultimate Childhood Memories

     Had the chance to visit Alun-Alun (central park) for the last time before it was destroyed by the government. Not really destroyed but kinda switch its function into an Islamic center. The iconic fountain would be gone for good now. It's sad because I have a lot of my childhood memories there. In fact, it's 20 years later and I still love to spend my Saturday night there. Looking for some street food, taking ootd pictures, or accompanying my 2 years old nephew playing toy car in the park.
