Alexander Wang For H&M : Boxing Gloves and Beyond

Fashion world went gaga when Alexander Wang and H&M announced their collaboration back in April at Coachella. I still remember freshly how ecstatic I was back then.
Now, here they are!

Track field runway and parkour guys flying around as the opening. Just by a glimpse of it, we know what we're signing up for.
Extreme Sports.
This is exactly what I've (Or we've) expected from Wang for H&M. He's always known for his ability to transform your basic clothes to model basic clothes; and that's exactly what he did!
Sports can't be more chic than this.
Neoprene has been a huge part of fashion trend for this past few seasons and it doesn't plan on going nowhere, according to those sweatshirts and trousers.
Without further ado, here's some of my favourites from the show.

I'm a fan of outdoor sports myself so when I saw this whole modern-sporty outfits, I can't help but to check my schedule and plan my visit to the nearest H&M after November 6. (But I'm currently in Korea so possibly, later than Nov. 6th)
I especially love the sport bra, sweatshirts and boxy leather jacket, but I might purchased anything they have in their Korea branch, including those gloves and hand wraps. (Because I do really need them)

Quoting from,
Wang has a nose for what’s happening on the street. Capitalizing on America’s obsession with fitness, he’s designed a collection of extreme workout clothes  
Smart move Mr. Wang, I'm sold.

Anyway, I can't believe it's been 4 months since my last post. I feel terribly awful for neglecting my blog for such a long time but this past few months have been the busiest yet, the most exciting months in my life so far. I'll probably write more about it on my next post (hopefully within this week).

Love, Andreina

Ultra Music Festival 2014 + Inspiring Blogger Award

For anyone who followed me on Instagram probably already knew that I went to Seoul again last week to Ultra Music Festival. I love EDM and Ultra is like one of the biggest EDM festival these days. When I heard that they're coming again to Korea this year, I surely can't miss it. (I missed last year because I wasn't legal yet last here in Korea).
This year lineup wasn't as awesome as last year's but still pretty good and I know that I'll regret it if I missed it so although we're still in our finals week, there we go!

Day 1 was pretty awesome and I loveeeee Above&Beyond even more!
And there, day 2 began.

I'm a fan of W&W and they're predictably my favourite act of the night ;)
The lighting was on fire though, the main "U" light and apparently that's the first time this kind of thing happened during any Ultra ever so they stopped W&W for few minutes there. (It kinda happened during Swedish House Mafia's One Last Tour when they came to Indonesia so this isn't unheard of for me.)

Anyway, I can't post all my photos here because it would be too long haha so here's few others more!

Basically that was probably one of the best weekend in my life in Korea so far. Still below my "Avengers shooting" experience though.
3 days of literal Eat Sleep Rave Repeat! See you next year Ultra, wish I can go to the Miami one. Or even better, Tomorrowland!

Anyway, I got this "Inspiring Blogger Award" from my best friend Rosalina. Thank you so much dear <3
Basically I need to post 7 facts about me so, here it is!

7 Facts :

  1. Outside Indonesia, almost everyone call me "Reina" (from my middle name, Andreina)
  2. I used to be a dancer. Planning to dance again real soon ;)
  3. I'm Worship Team member in my church in Korea. No, it's not Korean church, it's International church for english speaker. 
  4. I'm a real deal procrastinator. Something I should be ashamed of really
  5. Moving Image Enthusiast. More well known as movie junkie, but I enjoy watching series too, Too much.
  6. I've never eaten salad and never thought I'd like it until my freshman year in college. Now, I can't live without it.
  7. GOD is everything for me.
There you go fellas! Have a nice weekend ;)

Love, Andreina

Kim Hyun Jin's Illustration Exhibition & The Mindy Project

Top - Something I found miraculously stranded inside my closet
Bottom - Thrifted
Shoes - 0618 STUDIO 
Bag - H&M
Necklace - Stradivarius

Last weekend I went to the opening of my professor's friend's illustration exhibition, KIM HYUN-JIN
Gosh I wish I'm half as good as her. 

I'm actually really addicted to "The Mindy Project" these days. Can't believe I never watch it until now. Mindy Kaling is like, my soul sister! She's funny and super amazing! It's really refreshing to watch someone who's not as lucky as most women in normal romantic comedy movies.
Sorry for blabbering all of sudden. You might be wondering, what is this "The Mindy Project" thing?
The Mindy Project is a romantic comedy series following Mindy Lahiri, an OB/GYN and her co-workers in small medical practice in Manhattan. Season 2 had just ended and I really can't wait for their third season. Yup, they got renewed, Yay!
Besides the amazing regular casts, they also got some seriously cool guest stars line up! Seth Meyers, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Maria Menounos, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, etc. and I really couldn't stop laughing when Kris Humphries made an appearance and poked fun at Kardashians and his former relation with them.
I highly recommend this series if you haven't watch it! :)

By the way, I'm coming back during summer break to Indonesia!! So excited! Let's have meet-up guys, I'll be in town from June 28th - August 13th, anyone? You can hit me up through my Facebook, twitter (@vqueengita), instagram (@gitaandreina)!

Best Day of My Life!

Yellow Blazer - Promod
White Tees - Lilou
White Shorts - Zara
Handbag - Mango
Flats - Somewhere in Bangkok

Thanks Nia for taking these photos ;) 

BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! At least so far, I guess. I have few reasons why, if you wanna know why, read this post through ;)
Last weekend, me and my friends went to Seoul for "certain" reason so this post is actually about out weekend getaway. 
I'm currently rewatching Gossip Girl so I'm really "Gossip-girl minded" (or Blair-Waldorf minded) nowadays so it's funny how me and my friend, Nia actually kinda dress up like Blair Waldorf and Jenny Humphrey unintentionally!
Just kidding. I mean, minus the body and the face of course, I'm nowhere near the queen. 
I like how I was kind of preppy and Nia was more romantic-ish rock chic. LOVE <33

We went to Itaewon, also known as foreigner-district in Seoul, to grab a lunch and we accidentally saw this poster at the subway station about this pie bakery called, Tartine. I've been craving for apple pie since forever and to finally found the legit american apple pie is awesome. We tried their Apple Pie and Chocolate Fudge Pie and boy, those are GOLD! Definitely gonna come back there.

In front of the Bakery

And this is the reason why we went to Seoul.


I know it probably sounds pretty crazy especially for people who know how far Seoul from Busan is and it's not cheap to go to Seoul. So I might sound really creepy (or crazy) for them.
But in my defense, it's probably my once in a lifetime chance to watch the filming of Avengers so up close and I'm such a huge fan of Marvel superheroes.

We went to Seoul with no high expectation, we thought that even if we can't see the filming up close, at least we tried because most of the filming locations are on the bridges so our chance was actually slim to none but we wanted to at least try. So we did.
And God bless us.
We saw Chris Evans.

I'm so speechless. I was freaking out inside!! I mean, it's FREAKING CHRIS EVANS!! At first we thought we only see Captain America's stunt double and even with that, we were already so happy and grateful but then we got informed that the guy in Captain America's suit was in fact, Chris Evans himself.

Plus the awesome day we've spent happily after finished watching the filming of Avengers.
Best Day Ever!

A Little Help, Please?

I've been searching for the perfect creepers for soooo long. But I haven't find the perfect one and you can only imagine how happy I am when I found it randomly when I was browsing on DresSale. When I first found DresSale, I thought they only sell dresses but to my surprise, they definitely have awesome collections of shoes. The problem is, I can't decide which to choose, so.... Help me?

All photos courtesy of DresSale

I know it's spring already and it's time for more color but I just can't help to give a little bit more grunge touch to my clothes. 

The first one is definitely unique, i love the tribal touch on the pattern but tribal is getting so mainstream these days so i'm not sure. (Even though I own a lot of tribal-patterned-clothes myself. lol)
The second one, is the classic black and white creeper. And you can never go wrong with classic.
The third one, the checkered one. It's sooo unique. At first, I didn't really like it, I thought it was weird but now, it's on my list.
The last one is also hard to be missed. I love how it's all black yet the details are neat yet edgy. LOVE IT.
Guys... help me... I'm pretty sure I'm gonna buy them all (or at least 2) but in the mean time, which one should I buy first?

Anyway, DresSale also has tons of beautiful dresses. Not only for wedding, they also have dresses for Bridesmaid, Sweet 16, Prom Dresses, Cocktail Dresses and many more. Definitely a one stop shop! If only I know this sooner, prom dress wouldn't be a problem for me.

Speaking of prom, have you girls start preparing? Should I make a post about prom?

Find Me

Top - Stradivarius
Leather Jacket - Promod
Shorts - Zara
Bag - Stradivarius
Shoes - Nike

I know I haven't posted anything since ages. In my defense, I was busy packing stuffs, coming back to Korea, unpacking tons of stuffs, welcoming new Indonesian students in my university and finally finishing my first of week of new semester. Well, or probably I'm just a huge procrastinator. That's more likely.

From now, I'm planning to make this blog more like my journal. I probably can't write on daily basis but I'll write as often as I could. I'll still definitely post random stuffs but I think I'll share more of my thought. Just a thing or two ;)

These days, I learned something that I'm still struggling with.
I thought about lots of things, dream, future, happiness, living life... Those kind of things. By the end of that train of thoughts, there's one question that popped up in my mind. 
"Until what extent will I seek happiness? Will I ever able to find and reach it?"
And it turns out, I didn't have the answer. Will I ever able to reach the point in my life where I can say that I'm happy with everything I have.
To this point, it scares me. What if I'll die without finding the true happiness that I was longing for in my whole life?

Later, I don't know how, I think I came up with a conclusion.
I will never find happiness if me myself, don't know what I'm looking for. And I will never know what I'm looking for if I'm not even grateful and thankful with what I have today. 
Gratitude. That's the answer. That's the first step.
When I'm not grateful with what I have, I'll constantly try to fix everything, anything. All I can see are the flaws, even when I've reached the point where I should've been satisfied. I won't. Because all I can see is the flaw, the dark negative part. That means I'm seeking something impossible because nothing would ever makes me feel satisfied and happy.

I still haven't figure out a lot of things. I really wish I had, but I haven't. At least not yet.

Anyway, the photos in this post were taken by the beloved, Brenda Evans. So happy that I finally got to meet her. We had a late lunch after briefly visited Indonesia Fashion Week. 

Love, Andreina
