telling me that I might, at least, have some chance to win you. - Mr. Knightley

I don't know if you knew,
but Chanel is seriously my one and only obsession in fashion world.
How genius is Mr.Lagerfeld?
Not just anyone can create such an elegant, feminist, and playful vibe into one collection!

Tati Cotliar, Jac, Freja Beha and an unknown model had successfully stole my heart.

Let's say that I was blessed and experienced an epiphany at the church sermon today.

18 years ago, 12th May

hello world, I'm Carissa Vicky.

bye 17

Okay, so maybe mine isn't exactly 14.000 things to be happy about, but since today is my last day of being 17, I guess I should list some of the things that I accomplished in this one eventful year of mine. Like I said, not exactly 14.000 but enough to be satisfied for.

Being 17 so far :
  • met my current crush (yes, still a crush)
  • officially became a senior high-schooler in Gandhi
  • participated in Namarina Internal Ballet Competition 2009
  • became a finalist in Namarina Internal Ballet Competition 2009
  • the second time I joined the RAD Exam for Intermediate Foundation
  • buy a DSLR camera
  • and learn photography
  • my crush went to Germany :'(
  • buy a new cellphone (BlackBerry) and unfaithfully ditched my favorite cell (Sony Ericsson)
  • the result of RAD Exam were out : DISTINCTION!
  • So, I'm now in Intermediate (Ballet)
  • Bought my second pointe shoes, which is Grishko.
  • Stressed out because of UAN, Grade 6 Examination, & the Ballet and Jazz Evening showcase
  • crush gave me his cell's number? YEAY!
  • faced UAN
  • first time dancing with pointe shoes at the "Impian Kartini" Ballet Showcase
  • faced Grade 6 RAD Examination
  • not so officially, now I'm in Grade 7
  • UAN result were out : PASSED (though not really with a flying colors)
  • therefore, unofficially, I'm no longer listed as a high-schooler.
  • my fashion tumblr finally reached the number of 1000 followers!
  • tried modelling (didn't really enjoyed it)
Though I've been through with a lots of ups-and-downs, but I'm really happy that I've tried and accomplished so many things. So, bye 17 and welcome 18!

persephone vintage

I think that it was through someone's blog that I came to find this shop amongst many vintage-sellers in etsy. At first I just thought that the name is cute and kinda unique in a way, like it said "Persephone Vintage" and as you know, Persephone is the wife (unfortunately, I might said) of Hades. Oh well, don't get me started on that. Anyway, what I like about this shop is the cute and girly style of the clothes they sell. My God, not just once that I hope to buy at least one item from this shop.

I don't know why but there's something about all the vintage thing that they sold that really match my style in fashion. Well, as a starter I'm not really a vintage lover but what they sold in Persephone Vintage is what I called as eternal-vintage. Something that doesn't (and never will) die with time.

And, don't you think that they really got a thick vibe that says "Zooey Deschanel" in their clothing style?

Lately, I have this strange obsession of having and living in an all-white-lodge by the beach with white sands and clear blue sea, where I can sit in the porch anytime I want and hear the rolling sounds of the waves crashing the rocks. I don't know, but maybe I'm a bit inspired by "The Last Song" which I've started reading yesterday but yeah, I always love the beaches.
