Polyvore Reveleation : Concert Days

Concert Days
basic t-shirt : wearable for daily occasions, too. skater skirt : easy to mixmatch and comfortable. no underarm maintenance required.  

I've forgotten how fun playing Polyvore was. So I reopen my account and create my virtual wardrobe. And now, when I limit my possessions, it's even more fun! Why? Because you're focused. You know what you're doing. You're integrated with your persona list--not living a consumptive dream. Just like when I started over my fashion-istic journal in the beginning of this year. 

I used to be a dress junkie. With so many reasons: wedding receptions, churching, concerts, hangouts, etc. In fact, 80% of my dresses are generally useless. I wear some of them only once or twice and forget their existence immediately. Because, how would you teach energetic kids with a lace dress, or how will you take a walk around the city with high pollution wearing pretty mini dress with ribbon on the waistback? It's...a dream. And sadly, most of my dresses are never, never been appropriate for those casual activities. Furthermore when it's sleeveless...since I become shy with that sleeveless stuff, can't wear 'em spontaneously without considering my hairy underarm situation. Or should I layer it with a cardigan eventhough it's sunny and hot outside? :p

That's why I've sold 3 of my little black dress (which is a-must-have, according to fashion experts and magazines, meh), my high-heels shoes, and all inappropriate things that usually stay deep down in the drawer without any human touch. 

Anyway, this is my previous concert pieces expectation: 

lesson learned : the shoes might be fine, but those dress' details on the neckline will make it hard to put on my viola on the shoulder. and sleeveless : need armpit hair clearance and it takes time...and effort.

And this (newer version of the one above):

the concept is better, but sequins all over? wait a minute! It's itchy like hell for energetic activities. plus, it's high-maintenance. and it usually comes with nonabsorbent lining. reality is, playing music makes you sweat a lot, you need a easy-breezy clothing!

Well, folks, how do you manage your formal attires? 
Will you sacrifice your comfort only to impress or to make sure you look good?

The Colour Combo

Some capsule wardrobe experts create their colour circle. Or pallette. Or whatever you name it. The point is: the general colour combination of your wardrobe to be sticked on.

I am not a strict, organized person. But naturally, I'm building a pallette in my daily outfit choice. Without noticing it!

Caution : some items in the illustration are not really something I possess. But it's generally something I'd like to wear...or it's just cute to be drawn. Hehe.
Anyway. After a while, here's my general colour pallette :
Pink, denim, yellow, and blue. Yes, it's just so me! Plus, some grey shade for cleanliness and neutralizer. You know, I'm full of emotion and excitement. Something has to...calm me down. :p

And, anyway, some printed stuff is ME. I do love pattern game! XD 

There you go. My pallette. Do you have a colour pallette for your wardrobe organisation? :D

Neglected. Abandoned. Bye.

Noooo, don't misunderstand this post as a sad, hollow-faced lady writing up her feelings!
It's not about me being neglected or a pet being neglected or what. It's just a simple post about...how we have abandon the real quality of humanbeing. It's about humanity.

But, surprise! I'm kidding. Yes, I'm concerned about humanity nowadays, but actually, that title is just a representative for some little thing I've realized recently. Hahaha. Got you!

*minta dijitak 

OK. Anyway. I'm in the middle of the 20s now. In the world full of materialistic offerings. But I've been a make up hoarder in my early 20s, and an outfit lover in my 18s-23s. I also love to buy expensive imported food for the sake of gaya and ceritanya sih veganism and health. But in the end, because I wasn't wise enough (not actually gain much wisdom now, but not worse than yesterday!), I've thrown too much effort, money, and space. And time. Sorry. The enlightement started here.

And, after a while, I think I've left a lot of things I used to hang on to hardly. These are things I've neglected with a mindful reason :

+ plural lip products
I used to have lip butter, balm, tint, and colour stick together at the same time.  I only have one lips, but I thought I gotta use 4 products for this so-called-beautiful-organ. And...actually, rather than makin' me happy, it stressed me out.  I need to use it before the expiring date! My lips I dry I should use a butter! Balm before lipstick! Lipstick stains on tumbler neck! Lipstick stains on my clothes! 
Pale lips! Where's my lipstick? Oh I forget it. AAHH! 
What a stressful lady. I'm still young, I don't wanna be old earlier! And my lips are FINE. Definitely fine. My daily-game (call it a game or I'll be under pressure) doesn't even push me to wear lipstick! A proper lip-colouring session only appears in concerts or weddings / another party events.
The last time I wear my lipstick (which is this lipstick) was 3 weeks ago for my friend's wedding. So, it could be silly if I collect more and more lip products, since I only use it for special events?

During this time, I'm feeling lighter. Like there's no pressure or doubt about my lips being pale. Because, in reality, it's even brighter and more red after I left my habit of using lipstick every single day. 

+ eyeliner
I have a bad feeling about eyeliner everytime I see an additional stroke on my bold eyelids. But I still gave it a try, with such a ladylike expectation. It's not  bad, actually. Not actually annoying. Unfortunately, wearing an eyeliner increases my freedom. I didn't want to laugh too hard or it'll melt. I can't touch my eyes area. I...literally couldn't do anything without considering my eyeliner situation. HAHAHA. So I give my eye a freedom. Real liberacy. I'm thankful for that decision. 

+ handcream
Because handcream is just a body lotion being kept in a smaller tube and being labeled handcream. THAT'S ALL.

+ flat shoes
Nothing is wrong with flat shoes. But being realistic, I can't walk safely with this species of footwear. Especially on the bumpy road of Bandung, plus it's usually muddy and slippery during the rainy season. I have a zigzag walking style and some friends of mine know how often I fall down on the street! Flat shoes is definitely dangerous for me in my habitat. It could be different on you! It hurts, too. As much as stillettos. In my standard.

Everytime I feel like complaining, I try to remember a joke or a funny puns...to switch to a better channel of mind. And good things are coming. Along with an optimistic feeling.

Happy Friday, people! :)
