My Indie Designer Purchases from Bandung

I bought a total of 4 necklaces, 2 asymmetrical hem tops and 2 bloody awesome cloak/cape-like throw overs. I’m sure you’ll like them as much as I do!

Here’s my take on how I intend to wear the 2 tops. What do you think?

With a belt, and either opaque leggings or a pencil skirt.

Patches and buttons around the collar.

Ok I haven’t sewn the crazy things on this one yet. Maybe I’ll wear it plain as it is first before putting my own spin on it.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.

  1. I love the bird and the cat necklace – but I think I like the bird one the best (maybe because I like birds more than I like cats).

    I do like your plans for that blue top – will look even more AMAZING than it does now^^

    • Hahaha! Thanks!! If you do have the opportunity, you should check the shops out! These are mostly one-of-a-kind pieces or on limited run. I probably paid (at most) between USD10-12 for each item. I brought about USD300 for the entire trip and it went a looooooong way – food, transport, tipping, shopping & a spa massage included!
