Controversial Lempuyang Temple photos



If you're a travel enthusiast, you might have encountered photos of the Lempuyang Temple on your feed. At a glance, it looks like a majestic site with a clear pond surrounding it that beautifully reflects the surroundings. But the catch is, there's really no reflective pond and it's just a camera trick achieved through putting a glass or mirror under a camera phone. Now, people are calling it 'fake'. However, some are defending the photos as an artistic take. What do you think?

Here in the tropical region, we face even the rainy season with an intense degree of humidity. Luckily, we can easily fight this stuffiness we feel by wearing short and airy clothes. Not only that, but wearing short bottoms elongates the figure and help petite ladies appear a bit taller. So quit thinking twice about showing off your legs. If you’re looking for ways to own your figure and beat the heat, check out how the Clozette Community styles their short outfits for breezy comfort.

Some clothing pieces are just meant to take the world by storm. A year ago, our feeds were filled with everyone sporting that leopard midi skirt, or variations thereof. This year, it seems that we already have a nominee for the “it” dress of the year: Zara’s polka dot dress. Currently, the piece is taking over Europe, and surely, it's only a matter of time until it takes over the world. It’s become so popular that it led to the birth of an Instagram account, @hot4thespot, dedicated to posting sightings of the dress. 


Faye Oakenfull, the stylist who runs the account with 4.5k followers, said it all started with an IG story of an awkward fashion moment. “Back in April, I was working on a shoot and both the Art Director and make-up artist turned up on set wearing The Dress,” she told the Stylist. It’s been quite a while since the account’s creation last May, but people have been actively submitting snaps of the dress since. 



It’s not the first time a piece from the Spanish brand has received this sort of cult following. Way back in 2016, comedian Lulu Krause created a Tumblr blog just to post sightings of Zara’s blue off-shoulder dress. Most of these viral pieces seem unassuming at first, so why the popularity? Their charm lies in their versatility. This polka dot dress, for one, can be mixed and matched with any type of shoes, accessories, or even other clothing pieces, as what their sightings show. No matter your style or silhouette, The Dress is a perfect fit. Plus, with it appearing almost everywhere, we don’t really want to miss out.
