London Fashion Weekend 2013

If you follow fashion account whether on twitter, instagram or blog, it seems obvious that February means a lot to fashion people as the most leading fashion weeks are held in the four fashion capitals of the world. Anyway, I'm not gonna explain too much about these things since I'm not really up to date with them. All I can give you is some blurry pictures that I got from London Fashion Weekend. Mind you, it's different with London Fashion Week. LFW was held midway through the month, then closely followed by London Fashion Weekend. 

Even though I just attended one fashion show by Hilary Alexander, I was quite satisfied. She introduced four key trends for the upcoming season, namely, Graphic Art, Urban Lifestyle, Doll's House and Eastern Promises. They all look really amazing, but if I could choose, I would prefer Urban Lifestyle and Doll's House collections. While Urban Lifestyle is all about collared blouses, shirt-waists, duster-coats, Doll's House makes me desperately seeking spring and summer with its sweetness floral dresses and pastel colors with a mix of metallic effect.

Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you've always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can't touch
When you can't wait any longer
The only way to get there
Is one step at a time

The Utmost Comfort Zone

I wasn't a kind of person who brave enough to step outside of my comfort zone. I'm the kind of person who think and worry too much, so that I had a fear of trying new things. This is supported by the fact that I cannot always easily adapt to new circumstances, things, environment and people. I tried to avoid them, but whenever I tried, there have always been opportunities that makes me finally taking it just because I'm curious. It happens over and over again until I finally have realised that trying something new isn't always scary. Indeed, I challenge myself to always try new things now.

An inspirational person I know once said, "don't ever want to feel comfortable". She didn't explain much about it, but what I can understand from her statement is, sometimes it's better not to feel so comfortable with anything, anyone and any place. It's because the more comfortable you get with them, the harder it gets to leave them. After I've been through some phases in my life, I must admit I agree completely with her. The first step is always hard when everything goes back to start, but believe me, you won't regret it because the most meaningful and amazing moments in your life happen when you leave your comfort zone.

However, there's still one place that will always be my comfort zone. My room. I find myself getting too attached to it, especially for now, as I probably spend a majority of my time in my room. For some people, a room doesn't have much meaning. But for me, it is the most important place whenever I move into a new place. Whether when I was in Jakarta, Bandung or even now in here, the first thing I do in the first few months is make my room comfortable enough for me. The reason is simply because room is the only place where I can freely organise, decorate, control and do whatever I want without bothering other people. Oh, it's also a place that always remind me of some important things for me, either the things I want to achieve, people I love and memories worth remembering.

One of the best things about my room is the view from its window
