One of my new year resolutions is to wear more Indonesian traditional clothes. I just realized that, as Indonesians, we have been given the privilege to easily access the beautiful and colorful Indonesian fabrics. It would be a shame not to explore more about them and wear them proudly. That’s why when I had two wedding invitations on the first weekend of 2010, I didn’t waste any chance to invade my mom’s closet and grab her kain collections
If I were to go out and about, I would’ve worn the jacket with jeans. This time, I paired it with my mom’s long skirt that I folded at the waist to make it shorter. I think they go well together, don’t they? Well at least according to me they do :D. This was for the akad nikah ceremony.
Rebecca Taylor Jacket
House of Leather bag
This was for the evening wedding reception. I just wrapped the fabric around and tie it on the side. For a second, I felt like someone who was going to wash her clothes at the nearby river.
Victoria Secret lace top. I got it for my wedding seserahan seven years ago
Kain batik. Ada “prodo” nya (the glittery gold)
Snake skin clutch from Belles Du Jour
This was the next day for another wedding. The reception was held right after the akad nikah so I didn’t have to change clothes.
