Earlier today I tweeted "Mirror-mirror on the wall. When will Condé Nast adopt me?", I was like really hope that it will actually happened to me someday, but after that I just think that career as journalist in fashion especially here in Indonesia, well I still think it's not something comparable with job as fashion journalist in US, maybe (so that's why, the top reason I really want to move abroad) I still have no idea. But the thing for sure here, fashion journalist is not worth paid (literally compared with the lifestyle and other job), I saw someone tweeted about being fashion reporter or actually someone who working for magazine will not be able to buy Dolce and then someone replied that tweet said that you can buy Dolce but if your freelance works did amazing income and the meanest tweet that I have ever seen my on timeline which actually said that he paid his driver more than journalist salary per month OMG that's so cruel, he was kidding or what? but ya that's the truth by the way, although there are some publishers who will give well paid for you, but Dolce? Uuhh that so hard baby, and it's getting harder if your parents aren't super rich like mine, because as I always said that I come from a simple family.

I don't want to buy Dolce every season (well that's a lie) because it was not my top intention, I want to be a good fashion editor with appropriate style that represent today's style (wow what's that mean with today's style), with simple chic writing that blown mind away, I always trying to be a better writer and very vibe thrill breathtaking echoing styling and of course travelling, I really want that. So for everyone who need help in fashion life in New York, and you need someone who can assist you, take me, take me out, I am that person omg.

It's officially that I am no longer fashion editor for Men's Folio Indonesia, the magazine also no longer published, but I heard rumor it will publish again and this time with different publisher, I just hope they will you know be a better Maga, since I'm in love with the Maga so much, but thank god I have this blog, and oh imagining living in the US, I definitely see the bright future on my blog, different here in Indonesia (still cloudy here) that still not aware about this blog kinda thing, the industry is still not open their eyes or maybe they didn't see me? lol what was that thought. I see fashion industry in US is really appreciated with the works of blogger, isn't it? I have to say sorry every times people want to send me a sample to be featured on my blog because a shipping cost matters, while some local brand here is really hard to negotiate about it, I mean it was like, you want take over my homepage, or take over my blog without involving me on it, you know like, but it's up to them though and the rejection is on my hand.

But before Condé, there is a lots of works to do, to have been through, to improved, to to to too many to, yes it's perfections. While I'm sitting and writing in the nearest coffee shop, omg I feel like a mainstream writer, if only writing on my own could paid me a Dolce, I will be more than happy.

  1. OMG I'm sorry for your job. But I'm sure a talented person like you will be back on your feet in no time :)

      hmmmmm I'm kinda looking for another opportunity, but I really want to stay on writing track, but we'll see :)

  2. Hmmmm,... *terharu* wanna move abroad too,.,... iyah,.. masih banyak para marketer yg ga percaya sama market blog dan influencenya di Indo,.. but there's still a hope kak,.. Eh bentar, aku jd punya Ide,...


    1. Yes, there is still a hope, Indonesia is a big market, of course one of the biggest market, but I have no idea about luxury. Basically it's not about luxury, but fashion by hand made, I love what local brand doing lately, and I am so proud, but still, global fashion is always interesting for me from time to time, I want to contribute more than I am now.
