Unlike some fortunate ladies who live in a colder climate countries, rocking this dress over pants trend is a bit difficult for us.

Layering. Super cool when you know how, but extra hot (literally) when you live elsewhere (in my case, Jakarta, Indonesia). So when Emma Watson showed up with this black mini dress with a pair of black jeggings, it was a total mind opener.Β 

Back in the 1990’s dress over pants were huge. Actually it was not only pants, we wore them over jeans and anything as far as I can remember. But can we really pull this trend off now where I live?

Sure can. Here’s how:
– Keep it monochromatic like Emma did.
– Strapless dress is good as top, as it’s less hot, literally.
– Stick to a slim, super slim trousers or jeggings (no leggings please).
– Avoid ballerina flats as they’ll look sloppy, stick to high heel pumps or head for brogues shoes instead.
– As the trend’s name said: dress over pants. Don’t add more jacket or vest over the dress. Enough is enough.
– Less is definitely more for accessories and make up. You don’t want to pile up in this trend case, believe me.


Eventually, most people are really curious about what beauty products do celebrities use. Sometimes, we can’t really believe it’s really what they’re using, because of celebrities endorsements. One of the privilege of being a superstar.Β 

But when they didn’t do the advertisement for the product, and they just tweeted it casually with the picture of the product itself, would you believe that they really really love that product? Please be the judge.

Meanwhile, (if you ever believe in it), this two beauty products are @victoriabeckham favorite. She tweeted about them. The hand cream is from a little-known beauty brand called Royal Apothic, which manufactured this US$20 hand cream in Los Angeles. I bet this vintage-inspired tube hand cream will be sold out in no time in Anthropologie’s store where she bought it.

By the way, this is not the first product that Victoria ever mentioned on her twitter account. Earlier this year, she exclaimed: “Loving this face moisturizer!! Also mixes well with makeup”, for Lancer Dermatology AM PM Nourishment Treatment. Gonna go get them?
