Being a pedestrian in Jakarta, Indonesia, is not an easy thing. Sadly i have to admit, the pollution, the heat, sometimes the humidity, is not always bearable. Plus, the fact that fashion is not a major thing for most people here gives us (ones who dress up "a little bit" different) a hard time everytime we hit the road. The alienation gaze and sort of things like that is a daily menu. It is quite surprising to me that we actually DO need GUTS just to simply be a pedestrian. Here, to be bold in the malls, parties, or cars is quite ordinary, what's not is when you BRING it to the street !
By the way, i found this quite recently old pictures of mine. Taken from the photoshoot of a blogger fellow of mine, Bethanny Putri's clothing line, de.cada.dia. We were hitting the streets on Sunday morning, car-free day time, risking the chance that every people with their hip fixie bike will catch a glimpse then smirk on us, LOL. It was a fun and quite nerve-wracking. I really love the pieces i wore and decided to put it on my personal lookbook page (^o^)
