Today’s Outfit; Fiery Orange is the New Red!

If you’ve seen our Mango banner, you must have seen the white cropped tuxedo blazer worn by Miranda Kerr which says that it retails for IDR 499,000, and it’s not a sale price! It’s a full-priced piece from their recent S/S 2013 collection *gasp. I knew that I had to have it! The blazer falls right on the waist and it looks so preppy. The biggest casualty of this job is actually my wallet, because I’m being spoon fed with the latest information of what’s in store all the time!

But when I entered the Mango store last week, I got sidetracked. Surprise, surprise!

Instead of the aforementioned blazer, I got myself a military-style blazer which is available in lots of yummy spring and summer colours – red, fiery orange, emerald green and also the classic black and white. I was torn between the emerald green and fiery orange and decided to get the latter.

Military style blazer, textured white peplum top, pencil skirt with slit and studded shopper bag are all from Mango. Shoes from Missoni.

Although red is another colour that is going to be big this season, but this fiery orange immediately stole my attention when I saw it in the store. It’s a much more fun colour than a deep hue red and it makes me feel like I’m going to have a bright and happy summer – I know it’s always summer here in Jakarta – day ahead.

So ladies, if you’re thinking to invest in a blazer anytime soon, I suggest that you try on a fiery orange one and see how it will immediately brighten up your wardrobe. Plus, it’s only IDR 599,000! You can get IDR 100,000 voucher if you join the Mango ‘Style Up Yourself‘ contest in Clozette Daily (which, I did) and I only had to pay IDR 499,000 for this. :)

The studded shopper bag, although has studs allover, is still versatile because of the colour and I can bring everything with me, even my laptop!

The cuff sleeve detail with button fastening, which makes it more casual and a perfect combination for jeans for an off-duty look. But for a more serious look, I usually roll it down for the normal sleeve look.

Since I had an event that day at night, I just took off the blazer and paired it up with a wrislet clutch and a statement necklace.

Loving this pencil skirt with a slit. Office appropriate and can be worn to a cocktail event as well.

 

By the way, if you happened to purchase any of the Mango Spring/Summer 2013 collection, you could stand a chance of winning IDR 2,000,000 voucher just by taking your today’s outfit picture. More info can be found here. Too bad I can’t join, or else I’ll be posting my photos frantically since I have so much of their stuff from the recent collection that I’m dying to have.
