Chilly Weather

 ZARA Mustard Coat | GOWIGASA White Dual Pocket Sleeveless Shirt (as Inner) | ZARA 'Merci Bien' Top | GOWIGASA Emerald Green Skirt | Forever21 Heels

Fall has arrived in some parts of the world, but not in Indonesia; it's pretty much Summer all year long here. Anyway, it's the season when the leaves fall from the trees and it creates chilly weather. So, today for a Fall-themed outfit, I wore a three-layer outfit: White buttoned-up shirt under a grey shirt and a mustard wool coat over it. :)
Well, since I cannot stand cold weather, I'm pretty sure I'd add black tights to this outfit if I were actually in a country that experiences Fall/Autumn season. And maybe a scarf around my neck. And mittens. But, if I wore all of them in Jakarta, even if it's just for a half hour or so, I'd die.

Found this pretty wall on my way to the photoshoot location, so I just had to make a stop and took some pics there, hehe
So much love for this top, the material is very soft and cozy, and it's really flattering to my body!

White Dungarees

I was browsing through my laptop yesterday and I found these old photos of mine wearing white dungarees that were supposed to be posted on my blog like months ago! Wah! (...and I just realized today is Thursday hahahha, so here's something for #throwbackthursday)

Sporty Chic

Holding on to the wire fence, looking awkward.

H&M Pineapple Bralette | GOWIGASA Black Leather Skirt | Romwe Varsity Jacket | H&M Socks | Converse Sneakers | GOWIGASA Dope Snapback

Today I wanted to go for a sporty look that also gives a girly vibe. So, what I did was I paired my varsity jacket with a leather skirt (A-line) and this super cute pineapple bralette from H&M! :) I really love how the vibrant colours of the bralette create a pop of colour to my outfit.

To top it off, I wore a snapback to give an edgy touch, stripe knee-high socks that scream sports, and an extremely comfortable pair of sneakers! :D

By the way, I was very relieved when I found out this tennis court was empty so I could do the shoot without kids staring at me like I'm a circus act.

Oh, if you have time, kindly visit our web store, GOWIGASA as we just uploaded a bunch of new stuff! What's more, we also released our first basic collection that are designed and manufactured by us!

Elle and Jess Back to Black

So..? What do you think? ^^

Okay, first of all, yes, those are wigs. Few days ago, when we posted our pictures wearing them for the first time (see it here and here), some people thought they're for real lol. Well, they do look and feel pretty real to us, too. AND as you might know already that changing your hairstyle could really change the way you look, our dear brother was dead stunned when he saw Elle walking out of the elevator. Jess' bf didn't even dare to greet her when he picked her up at our apartment lobby. Both of them thought they saw someone who look completely similar with us, only with different hair lololol.

Well to be honest, it felt like a looooong time since the first time we coloured our hair (circa 2011), so maybe because of that, when @nonataliashop offered to sponsor us, we both picked these black ones in a blink, without even telling each other beforehand! Talk about telepathy.

Both our wigs have the same color: Jet Black. Even our natural hair color is not as black as this lol. Maybe because we did a lot of outdoor sports back then.. But THIS jet black color totally gave us a shock when we first tried it on. "So this is how we'd look like with @bellevalencia's* hair..." we thought.
*our cousin whom shiny-healthy-always-perfect hair should really be insured

We think black gives you this cool-mysterious-girl look, which is why we paired it with these outfits. But you know what, after this sudden Back to Black sessioneven though some people convincingly said that we look better in black, we actually got ourselves *even* reassured that we look better in our colored hair.

Ah well, it's all simply a matter of taste, right? ;)
