60s is all about sex, rock&roll, mod, and what not.

3 years after Indonesia declared its independence, David Ogilvy in New York set up a small agency. Today after 60 years, Ogivly&Mather is one of the biggest worldwide advertising agency with strong hundreds of networks across the globe.

In its 60th anniversary, the Jakarta office celebrated it with 60s theme. Although, come to think of it, 60 years ago is more an era of 40s instead of 60s. But maybe 60s style is considered more stylish compare to 40s, oh well…

In an attempt to live up the party spirit, I hunted the nearest mall to see what I could get within several hours. The only thing I had in mind related to 60s/mod was Jacky O. Tough luck, especially with lebaran season coming, the easiest thing I could get was moslem (arabian) look. If only the party was in arabian theme, perhaps my life would be much easier *grmbl*.




Other style that are ‘in’ at the moment mostly those 80s (these-will-make-you-look-pregnant-tops).I dig 80s music and toys, but never, ever, the fashion.

Luckily then I found this “looked like it was made from wallpaper” dress. And I also found this magic thing that could make my hair pulled up in a neat bun within 5 minutes. Voila.

I then realized that my wardrobe actually have similar pattern with the mural in creative wall. Dean took this picture and it turned out pretty funny

It was amusing to see lots of people looking with their best effort in order to look mod. The party was, okay, too bad all the drinks was alcohol free to respect ramadhan month.

I felt sorry I forgot to bring my camera. But then again, the facebook traffic was pretty heavy for several days after the party, filled with photos uploading, tagging, and commenting, as per usual.
