smoke and ashes

Ms. Match is in mourning for her lovely city, Jakarta, and all of the victims of today's bombings at Ritz carlton and JW Marriott. But she believes that this will not dampen the spirits of Jakartans and Indonesians. We are not afraid! People..please stop infecting everyone with this virus of fear and paranoia. That's just what they want, to turn Jakarta into another city of fear. (for the term, city of fear, Ms. Match credits her lovely friend, Olga Panades)

holly golightly hair and kebaya?

If Ms. match has never mentioned how much she is in love with the film Breakfast at Tiffany's she will say so now. She looooves it. And as soon as she bought the DVD on ebay she watched it over and over again. She also bought the book. and loved it too! (even though there is some discrepancy in the story line. anyway.. you all got the point right?? So naturally, when Qiqi Franky, the infamous makeup artist, proposed to do her hair like Holly Golightly's in Breakfast at Tiffany's she squealed with joy! A tiny tiara would just perfect the look. She even thought about cutting her bangs to look like the adorable wispy one Audrey Hepburn had at the film. But.. talking about details brought her down to earth. Now.. the hair looks PERFECT with a black dress like the one Holly was wearing when she had her croissant in front of Tiffany's, but a kebaya (a traditional Indonesian dress)? Hmmm.. Another option she was thinking (since the kebaya will have a belt with a big bow at the back) was the bow chignon (will try to post a picture tomorrow). What do you all think?
