skinny jeans for skinny genes??

I'm definitely not a size 0 kinda girl, i have big bones and am 5'9"... i had a (very) low self esteem but began to gain it in these past few years,i used to be overweight but am at my most normal weight right now. do i feel fat? yes of course but who doesn't?

i realize that normal is not enough coz size does matter , and people will always judge a book by it's cover.... but i believe that beauty comes in all sizes.no?

one more thing to share : Jeans is not my favorite thing in the world, i often feel(and look) fat in it, esp skinny jeans! but this forever 21 super stretch skinny jeans is my only exception! it fits like a glove and surprisingly super comfy!!
i wear: riotous-crop sweater, forever 21-jeans and glasses,headband-unbranded,jeffrey campbell-lita boots
btw thank you so much for dropping by and shopping at yesterday's blogger's yard  sale!

CK or nothing at all





 my nickname is CK(read:check-a) LOL, but those video campaign are definitely not mine, it's the other(well known, iconic, legendary, infamous) CK (read:Calvin Klein)

Found those incredibly ah-mazing videos on YouTube yesterday!  btw i love abbey's video the most, her voice is so cute i cannot believe that she's 23, she is definitely older than i thought...

and Lara was so skinny! why did Anna Wintour categorized her as a plus size model anyway?! 

story of the day: my blackberry was broken and nobody can fix it. T___T so saddddddddd.... too many cute pictures of my pug(chiko) and my mr.B there. T____T

batik outerwear by niko's batik, jeffrey campbell lita boots,  diy black shorts, bangles-blogger's yard sale

Mr.B took this fabulous photos(as always) weeks ago and for the first time he was kind enough to pimp my super plain blog and voila!!! look at my lovely header and links above(yup he's the sweetest man in my life) !!!

BTW

i fell in love with that batik outerwear as soon as my grandma pulled that colorful baby out of her shopping bag,,,i screamed "oma lemme borrow that thingy for a week or maybe two! please please", i never ask anything from my grandma, excepts her delicious Indonesian foods . FYI My grandma is a former model/ballerina/designer . Super cool right? she's the most fabulous grandma of all time.     

last but not least here are some info about batik for those who never heard about it before:

Batik is a cloth that traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique.
javanese traditional batik, especially from Yogyakarta and Surakarta, has notable meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe. Certain patterns can only be worn by nobility; traditionally, wider stripes or wavy lines of greater width indicated higher rank. Consequently, during Javanese ceremonies, one could determine the royal lineage of a person by the cloth he or she was wearing.
Other regions of Indonesia have their own unique patterns that normally take themes from everyday lives, incorporating patterns such as flowers, nature, animals, folklore or people. The colours of pesisir batik, from the coastal cities of northern Java, is especially vibrant, and it absorbs influence from the Javanese, Arab, Chinese and Dutch cultures. In the colonial times pesisir batik was a favourite of the Chinese, Dutch and eurasians.
UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on October 2, 2009. As part of the acknowledgment, UNESCO insisted that Indonesia preserve their heritage

Yesterday i was participating on judittie fashion show at birdcage as one of her five beautiful models! Judith invited me to come to her show a week ago, and she asked me to become her model too... it was an out of body experience! i love judittie's  2011 collection so much, the clothes were all backless, super comfy and affordable! you can check out the rest of her collection here .


Judith's first line was dedittie but after 3 years ++ of ups and down, she finally made her mind and produce a totally different (in a good way) collection called judittie. Btw if you are a shoe lover  please please please love your beautiful feet and buy "kloom clog shop" 's shoes! Those babies were super comfy! kloom's made an ordinary clog became the clog extraordinaire. All the shoes that the models wore on judditie's fashion show was kloom's!more info about kloom : shop kloom
