I got an email from Amelia of Duckling to Swan when she moved to Jakarta a while back. When I checked out her blog and IG feed I couldn't get over how perfect her nails were. Currently drooling over . . .
Happy New Year everyone! It's been a while since I've done a Diplo Style post and I thought I'd change it up a bit today. I want to share one of my favourite easy-to-put-together modern . . .
This post was inspired by The Spoiled Mummy. I've been out of sorts lately. So much life is just happening, that I can barely keep up! The lack of sun (sunset at 4pm is not something I am used to) and . . .
Here is another bargain-hunting find in Berlin! It's TJ MAXX under a slightly differen't name. So if you are looking for a branded item for a much cheaper price or a quality investment piece, this is . . .
"It's a store by the same company that owns H&M but totally different style, more European street style than trendy." This is how Deepa of Currystrumpet first described & Other Stories to me, . . .
One thing that is definitely cheaper for us in Berlin than Jakarta is the clothes. Seriously! One would think that clothes will be cheaper in Indonesia, where a lot of the factories are, but for an . . .
As a diplomat's wife, I attended many receptions and parties. There are many times when I have to wear a Filipiniana gown or party dress and high heels. These receptions are usually cocktail-style so . . .
I wanna share another Jakarta find... a gem of a place called Pistos. It's a jewelry shop that is more accessible to my budget and with stylish, modern designs that are just to-die-for! Photos of the . . .
Yay i finally got myself a Borneo Chic bag, after lusting for one ever since I attended their store launch! Though its not the cheapest, it is for a good cause, the Craft Kalimantan Network supports . . .
Last week I was invited to attend 2 Jakarta Fashion Week shows. Unfortunately I couldn't attend one of them with Asian Fashion Law, but I was able to go with TD and Kaho of Chuzai Living to the Rusly . . .
You would never believe what my most popular blog post is (most number of hits) - aside from "Sergio Ramos' Girlfriend" that is. It's my post on FINO leatherware! People from all over the world are . . .
I don't know why this posted despite putting it on draft mode. It's a bit redundant of my previous post, but what the heck...So sorry! Bear with me while I decode this Polyvore sharing feature. . . .
Hi guys! So sorry my blog has been so erratic lately! I've focused my energy on my new baby, my DIPLOshop. Just trying to get it off the ground is taking a lot of energy and time. I'm actually feeling . . .
This is sorta fun because it's sorta hip-hop meets ultra-luxe. I know.. I know... again with the white and gold! What can I say? It's DiploStyle! Nude + Bling by thediplomaticwife featuring . . .
Last Saturday we were invited to the farewell reception for the Japanese Ambassador at Hotel Nikko. I was excited to see our DiploFriends after being away for the holidays AND because it was the . . .
When I am in Manila I already have go-to brands and stores. Jakarta is a very brand conscious city and it can be unnerving for someone like me, who never used to be into brands. Check em out after . . .
As I was walking towards the Fino store in Powerplant Mall Rockwell, I discovered a new store that reminded me of another favorite of mine (FIRMA). The new store is called CURA V and it basically . . .
After having lunch with OC Mom in Manila and (eye)candy at Chelsea in Serendra, I went with OC Mom to EchoStore where she was hoping to get refills for her Messy Bessy cleaners. I love that we have . . .
I love that I'm married to a man who wears french cuffs and cufflinks daily. He's always loved french cuffs, even before he entered into the diplomatic corps... and I totally love this about TD. They . . .
Just a quick post on yesterday's Malaysia Day Reception. I didn't take my SLR so please bear with the few iPhone shots that I took. I wish I took more pics but it's not an easy feat to hang on to . . .
