This post is kind of late.. I planned it to be on the blog on August 18th -- at the same day these photos was taken -- in regards to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Indonesia's Independence Day which took place on August 17th, 2015.
In a bright sunny afternoon of August 18th, 2015, I -- with many other people -- went visiting Kusumanegara National Heroes' Cemetery (Taman Makam Pahlawan Kusumanegara), Yogyakarta. It was a kind of tradition to visit National Heroes' Cemetery on the day after the Independence Day as a way to remembering our national heroes and their sacrifice for our country, and as a reflection for ourself. I also took this as a chance to wear a red-and-white outfit to echo our flag's colors.
I rarely wear red. Actually I'm not a fan of color red. I just feel that red is too bright/bold for an outfit. So, for this 'red-and-white' outfit, I took 'red' a bit; for the headscarf and as a peek at the hemline. I wore my broken-white vintage dress as an outer to cover the most part of this bright red skirt.. I also love the pretty embroideries of this vintage dress; at the collar, sleeves, and pockets. Here are the quick snapshots of my outfit. What do you think?
