DIY Patched Leather Jacket

How terrible it is to witness your swag buddy, the faux leather jacket peeling by itself, slowly dying and being useless?  Moreover it is not reinforced with natural fibers like cotton, it would crack even when it is not exposed to the sun. Had been abandoned such poor thing in the closet for almost a year but I don't want its life to end too soon. No idea what to do. Low maintenance since its beginning, got abandoned for more years, oh how sad it looked.
 Then came the embroidered leather jacket into style, made me think to use some pretty embroidered patches to cover those huge cracks all over the jacket. Without taking too much time, a bunch of badass woven badges caught my attention in a craft shop and I automatically aimed to cover those irritating defects on my old jacket  using them. Wooo it's gonna look even more interesting! 
My neighbor The Cat, tried to steal my attention when starting to focus on my DIY Project of the day. 
Stradivarius maroon beanie, Mom's DIY chiffon shirt, New Look boots.

Tacky much? That's your business.

Pastel and Layers

I visited Farmhouse Lembang recently, and it was way more interesting than before to me since they seem to adding lots of ethnic stuffs and knick-knacks to their shop and also more areas with more rich,vibrant colors and patterns to enjoy. Such a comely place! Here I wore four pieces of clothing. Top tee from Miss Sixty, more pink top inside, knitted cardigan, and finally, the skirt which was embellished by myself using my pompoms leftover. Then the flat shoes actually had ribbon on them but I altered them with more pompoms from Stroberi. Yay for layering game!

You could dress up in some Dutch costumes here as well. And oh,  they have added more costumes to their collections. So many things to do and to see, if you haven't visited this place, do come!

Earth-toned Pattern Play

Been wanting to get rid of many old clothes of mine but haven't got the time to sort them out. The closet becomes untidy with some trousers and shirts peeking out. Then yes, girls often face a hard time of getting nothing to wear while there are abundance pieces of clothing lurk in their closet.
When such thing happens, it's best to step up the mix and match game to the next level. Since I like the kind of color-and-pattern festivity look, I accidentally, yet luckily, combined my old earth-toned floral dress with the top that I used as an outer. This combination set a more pleasant mood to the whole look compared to when they're separately worn. So, this one be my unexpected outfit of the day which turned out to be really nice! Grinning.
