It's 2012. We met online.

You think you've experienced gruesome traffic -- but then you visit Jakarta. Honestly, we Jakarta citizens laugh at what television and movies call "a traffic jam" because that's what we consider smooth traffic! Anyway, this sad truth is what got in the way between me and my plans to go thrift shopping. (see previous post)

Instead, my dad and I went to one of the biggest malls in Jakarta, Grand Indonesia. I was going to give up my challenge and finally cave in into buying one of the Zara blazers. Before we went to get my blazer (notice the possessive use of the word 'my'), my dad got a haircut and told me to get my nails done while I wait. I know, if I were you, I'd want my dad for a dad as well.

Of course, all good love stories have to face obstacles before they reach the happy ending. Grand Indonesia's Zara store does not stock the floral print blazers. I was heartbroken.

Here's where the internet comes in. I was browsing through blogs and blogs of Indonesian fashion bloggers and found this one local brand who has a really cool piece at a very wallet friendly price: Nikicio.

I immediately placed an order, and it should come sometime next week!

Here's the thing though. I am still lusting over one of those Zara floral blazers. I was thinking, maybe I should still get them even though I've found another print blazer. They're pretty different pieces. I'm in a dilemma. My heart says one thing, my wallet says another.

I leave you this post with a question. Since I wear outerwear's as often as most people wear t-shirts, can you really own too much blazers? 

(fangirl reference: according to irene adler, "there's no such thing as too much.")


  1. I can't wait to see your new blazer :) . I also love blazers, not floral, because I'm not really into floral print, but I love blazers. I probably don't have as many as you do, but I'm addicted to them :D . I want to get a peach-coloured one this spring, although I already bought a striped one a few weeks ago. I'm going to be in bankrupt because of blazers!

    By the way, I’m hosting a giveaway in my blog: a very unique totebag from Romerobags. Feel free to participate in . Good luck!

    1. I can't wait for it to arrive either! It should come soon :) I've only recently begun to love floral prints myself and since I love blazers, I figured I should add one with a floral print to the collection. A peach-coloured blazer for spring sounds perfect :D And yes me too, but I'm pretty much always broke anyway ha.

      Thank you for the comment!

  2. I hope to see you in your new purchase soon!

    No, you can't own too many blazers ;p. Personally, I look at them in every shop I go into ;)

    1. I'll be sure to post it! Haha and I am so glad you think so too ;D
