TRENDY TUESDAY: Over My Shoulders

Assalam lovelies!

What do you do when you have a million dresses but still want to appear different yet classy? Wore this super elegant dress from Hana Bella to an event the other day and decided to play around with it and added this matching beaded headscarf on my shoulders. Yes, it's actually a headscarf but I place the head-lace-beaded part on my shoulders and pinned it down.

Reminds me of the 90s when I was a little girl where I often see my mom put a selendang on her shoulders when wearing a kebaya or kurung attire. Ahh..classic!

Shawl: F21
Dress: Hana Bella
Chiffon shawl:  Hana Bella

FAITH FRIDAY: My Favourite Prayer Wear

Salam Friday everyone!

Thought of sharing with you my MOST favourite solah-wear I currently use at home or when I'm out and about. I came across Zaahara's booth while I went to Twins of Faith (if I'm not mistaken) at PICC a couple of months ago, and immediately knew that this praying veil was to be my next favourite. I seriously can' t remember when did I bought my first one, but I can assure you that since then, I've only used my Maryam Telekung everyday.

I love it so much, I have two of it now, bought one in black, and the other one...

Maryam Telekung: Zaahara

It's cotton, it's simple, I MOSTLY love the dainty embroidery, the type of fabric, the cut, the colour, the everything lahhh haha..  It doesn't crease that bad even with messy folding (whoopsy me!). The quality is immaculate and I can assure you you won't be to distracting to people when you use it publicly. Of course sisters, since nowadays there are plenty of praying veils competing against each other to appear to look the very best, but to me that's just plain riyaa'.

I'm sorry, I had to say that. So I vowed to wear only with a simple and straightforward one that meets my demand for solah in terms of its quality, material and design. Lucky for me I found it when I went wandering around shopping booths at PICC a few months ago. 

Hope this post is beneficial for you in looking for a lovely prayer wear! :)

P/s: It comes in a neat bag too! Will show you on my instagram later, I forgot to snap the picture! XD

WARDROBE WEDNESDAY: That Thin Striped Cardigan

Assalamualaikum ladies!

Updates are quite frequent this week, eh? Don't jinx it Shea! Hehe.. Lately I have been taking care of my body quite better than I used to. I used to feel tired and sluggish and I think it particularly shows on the contents I post up. 

When even taking a flight of stairs tires you, then you know your body is trying to tell you something. So I vowed to watch what I eat, and exercise more. Currently I'm active in cycling around my neighbourhood every evening I get the chance to, and I spend 3 nights a week swimming. I hope this will help my body regain its stamina and energy.

Pashmina: unbranded
Cardigan: Fashion Valet
Shirt: Cottonese
Skirt: @ohmyhijab
Bag: Moschino
Bangle: Kate Spade
Flats: Jelly Bunny

I love pairing yellow with beige. I'm not so sure why! Maybe the harmonious blend of those two colours appeals to me more than the colour purple. Oh gosh, I remember how I used to be so frantically crazy about purple! Everything I had back then was purple coloured. My room, my clothes, my stuff, accessories. Gosh. haha.. And now, I don't have a single purple thing except for this blog's name. XD

People do change, huh? Yes, and a change is what I'm looking forward to. Will spill more later! :)

SHOPPING: My Loots from Shopbop

Look what came in the mail today! I promised you I'd share what I got myself at Shopbop the other day, and here's me at it! :D

I was literally running to my mailman when this parcel came in. I was expecting it all week! Hehee.. Actually ordered a few stuffs from Shopbop cause I'm addicted to the free shipping feature (above $100) they have. Anything free shipping, then I'm sold. 

Since nobody wants to send me gifts, then I should gift myself! *forever alone* ahhaha.. No lah, I'm always like this when I shop online. I would include messages for myself during checkout purely for fun cause yeah, receiving gifts should be a fun thing even if you purchased it for yourself, right?

First thing is this gold bangle with my initial on it. I simply adore anything initialled so this bangle was a perfect match for my watch as a daily bangle thing. You know you have one daily accessory too, right? The one you keep coming back to even after rummaging through basketful of jewelleries.

Yes, I like boys with accents specifically British please. XD 
Seriously this is my wallet now cause I always find myself in a mess when I use smaller purses/handbags. My long wallet just won't fit in! What I'd do is I would casually take out my cards and cash, and put into the pockets of my purse. But I'd always forget them and leave them everywhere. So this little darling of a pouch is my God-given answer.

What is Shea Rasol without a new iPhone case? hahaha.. I've been scolded one too many times by my family over this unhealthy obsession. But blame the designers! Why do they have to make such cute casings, right? No? Right. haha..
