Ankatama, Be The Best Version Out of You

Posted by pofeleve

Going to work on the Weekdays, especially in Jakarta, a traffic jam is not really an unusual sight. Starting every days with traffic might not be the best idea, but we just get used to it. Listening to radio is one of the best way to enjoy the traffics. You can gain information such as news, trivias, listening to your favourite music to brighten your mood, or get entertained by the fun jokes from the radio announcers. This time, we got a chance to have a chat about style, health, confidence, and many other things with the inspiring lady, Ankatama, which you may heard her cheerful voice greets you in the morning from the radio. 

Born with full name, Ankatama Ruyatna, this Aries lady who loves monochrome and pastel color is a mother, a wife, radio announcer, master of ceremony, voice over talent, and also a social media influencer. Watching her instagram page you will see a beautiful, bold, and cheerful lady who love jokes. However, who knows that Mrs. Ankatama has her own soft and sensitive sides. She easily get touched and sometimes she cries watching a very sad movie. Also a fun fact, she is skillful on doing her own make up, she did her own makeup and haistyling on our mini collection campaign. Isn’t she great? and we will get to know her more now through the little chat.

Christmas is around the corner, how do you usually spend the holiday?

Taking a break, spending my time with my family. I think having a holiday is one of the most important routine. It can refresh our mood and we will be ready to start the routines with a more clear and fresh mind. It doesn’t have to be a long planned vacation abroad or going out of the city, just a simple staycation will do.

Just curious, how long do you know Pofeleve?

It was from my early career on my previous workplace. Starting as a radio announcer, my job requires me to look good and presentable. So, I switched my way of thinking that being big doesn’t mean that you are not beautiful and starts to find some new clothes to be added on my closet. 

I get to know Pofeleve from hashtag (laughs), like anyone else, #plussizedress and another plus size hashtag, anything and saw the post. I love the design, it suits my style. It’s simple, chic, dedicated for a niche market for plus size women, and the amount of followers is quite nice. So, that’s how I met Pofeleve.




What type of clothes that define you, is it casual, feminine, preppy, sexy, t-shirt and jeans, etc.?

I am more into the feminine side. A simple piece with a little twist is my favourite one and accessory is a must. If I wear a white shirt with pants or jeans, it has to be accessory on it.

What is your favourite piece from délices?

Sylvia Cardigan in Polkadot Gold, I love it

While you have so many activities everyday, how do you maintain you health and confidence?

I am an early-sleeper, almost never stayed up the night, the latest is around 10 pm I guess. Especially when I have to go to work in early morning. Sleeping earlier helps me to maintain my health. I also eat a lot of fruit, I rarely consume vitamins, and infused water is a must. I like the taste of lemons, thankfully I don’t have problem with my stomach so I can drink the infused water with lemons often. 

How about your confidence, how do you maintain it?

I always try to make the best version out of me, anytime, anywhere. I believe that everytime we go to a new place, meet with new people or my friends, it is a new scene of my life. We are in our own movie and there will always be surprises. I try it so I have less things to regret like “Ah, if only I greet her yesterday” or other ifs. Networking is really important for someone like Ankatama. I got a new friend, a new opportunity, a new surprise. Going to a supermarket or workplace, be flawsome. We are plus size women, but we maintain our health, our appeareance, our hygiene, and always the eyebrows have to be on point.

Encouraging words for the plus size women?

We have to believe that everyone has their own strength and every flaw can be turned into your advantages. Be grateful of what we have, see your own growth more rather than comparing yourself to others and you will be your own road, your own stage. Just enjoy the moment and you will be fine.

So, it is almost Christmas, how do you plan your Christmas Holiday? Stay at home having a Christmas dinner, exchanging gift with your friends and family, having an exciting long awaited trips, or you still have to work on holiday? Just remember that we are the main character of our own movie, so always be the best version of you and enjoy the moment. Keep the #pofeleveattitude right?

Have a nice holiday!

Hope your days be delightful and full of happiness

xoxo,

Introducing Amelie

Posted by pofeleve

Hello!

The season has changed, so do our fashion needs. Therefore, we are presenting you a new Fall Winter 2017 collection, Amelie. 

Have you checked them? Aren’t they cute, right? As you can see, this time we have some new shades added to the collection. While on our previous Pofeleve x Ucita Pohan collection we had Maroon and Etaupe as the main colors, now we have the Lint Green, Silver, and Hazelnut colors in the group. Lint Green and Hazelnut for Fall and the Silver for the winter. Also you will easily spot that the play of lines and stripes are still on in the game for this season.

Varied from tops, bottoms, dresses, jumpsuits, to the outers, this collection is classified into the classic and the feminine. The classic part is more content, practical, and versatile. While the feminine is more fun, easy-going, and confident. All of them are combined making a complete character of a girl who is independent, cheerful, smart, and presentable everywhere she goes, which we called her Amelie.

Amelie has been inspired from some fictional self-encouraging charactes from movies like Bridge Jones from Bridget Jones’s Diary and Amélie Poulain from Amélie. All of the characters are females who are kind, hard-working, and have their own sense of justice. Which is a great match with our #pofeleveattitude value. 

This time, we got a chance to ask the founders what is their most favourite piece from Amelie collection, and where will they wear them. Are they on the classic or feminine side?

Poppy Hanadhy

Being an active lady who has to work with many people, Ms. Poppy choose the Whitney Dress as her favourite piece. “I will wear it to evening formal events, it is comfortable and still presentable, why choose fashion or comfort when you can have both”, she said.  

Fe Utomo

Usually she is more into the classic practical piece like shirt and pants, but this time Frida Dress in Lint Green has been successfully steal her attention. She said that she will love to wear Frida Dress for her daily leisure time. Yes, running errands in dress, why not!

Helen Bellina

“Actually i love every single piece of this collection, its versatile. We as a dynamic women yet mobile on a daily basis activities. This collection represents how comfortable should be like. However, since i have to choose one  then the trophy goes to Charloz Jacket. I'd love to wear it from time to time and its so comfortable.”

Holy Veronika

Rather than choosing between Charloz Jacket and Lupi Blouse, Ms. Holy prefer to pairing them up as a set. “It will be perfect to pairing both of them for hangouts. Layering them both will be the best choice that I will do often.”

So, what is your favourite from our Amelie Collection? Well, whether you choose dress or a pair of tops and bottoms, remember that you will never fully dressed without a smile.

Have a nice day!

p.s.

Wait for the complete collection of Amelie soon.

Would you agree with Ms. Poppy that Whitney Dress is also your favourite dress? Also ask our customer care on WhatsApp for a secret exclusive color, like Black Marvin Playsuit, from Amelie collection.

Love, 

Pofeleve

Pofeleve Soirée

Posted by Pofeleve

On a Sunday Afternoon, after a pouring rain at a cozy two story café with a small backyard, in the front area of the café, with a group of see-through looking glass as a substitute of a concrete wall, we did a little gathering, our first Pofeleve Soirée (read: Pofeleve swäˈrā). Pofeleve Soirée is an afternoon gathering for a cup of drink, snacks, conversation, and fashion. The name Pofeleve Soirée is chosen because of the meaning and the word Soirée is rhymed with the word sore in Bahasa Indonesia which means the afternoon, the time of Pofeleve Soirée.


So this time we were inviting our friends and muses to come: Ucita Pohan, you all know who she is right, our muse of Pofeleve x Ucita Pohan collection; Shena Malsiana, the inspiring and creative woman in music, with a beautiful voice; Riezki Aisah, The Curvy Yoga Instructor, the one who inspires us to keep healthy; and our friends Debi Yanita, Dian Zahara, Triana Arief, and Vanda who had supported us from the beginning of Pofeleve. As conversation is the one main point in the Soirée, this time we had food and diet as the main topic, which will be varied in the next Soirée. We really had a great time. Starting with mingling, chatting, and giggling, the event continued into an #ootd session with Pofeleve.




As the sun goes down, after a couple of photo sessions, we start the sharing session about the personal food on regular basis and diet experience. Well, surely to keep your daily intake calories controlled and taking a regular workout is not an easy task. While everyone’s body metabolism are different, everyone has their own different approach when it comes to being healthy. Some people succeeded, but some still finding the right method. One point that all of us agreed on the discussion is that everything takes time, be patient, nothing comes instant, there will always be process. Get to know your body more, embrace the flaws, and keep getting better. Be confident, but never too confident!




Time flew fast, the sun has completely gone. It was an unforgettable moment and we wish to have held more soirée in the future. Thank you for all the guest for joining us, wish all of you keep inspiring all of us to love ourselves more by being confident, healthy, and appreciate the process. See you on the next Pofeleve Soirée!

Love, 

Pofeleve
