Jobless and Penniless

I'm jobless and penniless and I've bought loads of cool stuff from ebay and now I'm worried my mom will find her credit card bills and I'm sure she'll hang me on the tree when she reads the bill. (Inhale) Okay I'll surely reimburse every purchase, but this month's expenses are just hideous! And no, I have no regrets. Every purchase is precious. Except the Fashion Dictionary I accidentally bought when actually I'm learning psychology but then I bought this fashion dictionary instead of DSM-IV revised psychology bible. (Sigh)


Thrifted tulle dress. DIY necklace. DIY studded ribbon worn as belt. Forever21 shoes

I call it "Flat-broke outfit". Yeah I don't have many branded clothes, half of my closet are thrifted finds. It's simply because I hate expensive clothes, but I adore expensive shoes. So if someone hire me and offer me good salary, I'll entertain your beautiful eyes with beautiful shoes (I hear Givenchy and Louboutin are calling my name!)

Aaaarggh.. I need a job! (Translation: I need some cash)

Thanks to my bestie, Narita, for taking these pictures :)

Gorgeous dress and delicious shoes. I love thrifting as well, would you mind telling me where you go thrifting? I find that it's so hard trying to find a good vintage shop around Bogor + Jakarta.

The Hogan scarpe
brand is distinctive for high quality. Hogan scarpe donna
are the highest expression of a new luxury lifestyle. hogan donna
is meant for someone who cherishes the type of luxury associated. Apparently Ben had extra spikes put in his Hogan scarpe uomo
for extra grip.
