MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Cargo Chambray

I'm sorry but I just can't keep my mind off from singing Shake It Off by Taylor Swift. That song is purely addictive (and purely not because of my obsession with her haha).

Headed out to meet a couple of influential people in the industry last Sunday, specifically Sumayyah from Love to Dress and Syira from Sheikha Hub. Honestly it's refreshing to meet new people who have loads to talk and benefit you in a million ways. I used to reject or decline meeting people on a closer level simply because I don't have the confidence to do so. Yes, I do face serious confidence issues within myself and I don't think I've shown that side of me on my blog or social media channels.

I'm like you, I have inferior issues (which are a lot), and by meeting new people that opens up your mind and soul, you can discover your true potential along the way. Trust me, I found mine, last Sunday.

And this is what I wore to the luncheon with the ladies! ;)


Outfit:
Scarf: Turkey
Chambray shirt: H&M
Cargo sleeveless dress-turned vest: Milktee
Skirt: Zara
Bag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Zara
Heels: Ezra

Wanted to try the military-ish cargo trend minus the camo and olive green appeal. So this was my best bet. I'm comfortable in pulling my hijab up when I have something else covering my chest hehe.. So I find that this is the only way that I would allow myself to adorn a short bib necklace. Simply get any non-fitting outerwear and wear it over your shirt. 



And this is me while getting ready. Did I fool you into thinking that this was taken at a white studio? Cause if yes, then sorry to burst your bubble, but this image was taken in my sister's room, on her wall, using only my iPhone camera. :')

FASHION FRIDAY: Dangerously Black

It's Friyay ya'lls!

Which means that another weekend is here! (Duh)

Here's another look I've been waiting all week to share with you! You know how I loveee me some blacks, right? And this major stunner jubah was definitely my cup of tea. I love how slimming it makes me look, and to add up, the sequin line descending down the dress is ugh. Perfection.


Outfit:
Pashmina: Some booth at the mall
Mozhela jubah dress:  @bellaluna_design (instashop)
Bag: Alexander Wang Rockie

I just had to have this bubble umbrella when I saw it at Shopbop the other day (it's my new fav shopping site! Sshhh!) It's chic, it's fun and hey it's from Kate Spade. Haha I have been cursed with that label you know. 

Pssstt, I'm expecting another parcel from Shopbop next weekend. Will share with you once they're here! :D
Have a blessed and amazing weekend gorgeous!

SHOPPING: Accessories Lookout

I was browsing through the web the other day cause that's what I typically do when I have nothing else on my plate. I wanted to shop online and overseas, but I really don't want the online-shopping-bagagge: The Shipping Cost.

And so I found these cool things at Shopbop and now I feel like I wanna get something from there cause of the free shipping policy. GAWDDD.. Now I can work my Paypal to its heart content. Haha, no, just enough for me to get a couple of accessories from the site.

I'm eyeing theseeeee....

This funky case would certainly match my funky personality! Haha, I am in denial, and yes, I'm not that funky.



Super convenient for my Touch 'n Go card! And yes, I am in search of a smaller wallet simply because I need to start using smaller bags (I love my back)




You had me at the catchy phrase! Now, better think of a city to leave my heart at :p




I love the vintage appeal of this sunglasses, and it'd be a nice change for all those black sunnies I have, right? *Nooooo.... (I hear my black sunglasses wailing)




Just cause I have like a gajillion sunglasses, and more often than not, they come in ridiculously large and bulky boxes!

TRENDY TUESDAY: The Nyonya Kebaya

HAPPY MALAYSIA DAY, lovelies!

After being free from the British invasion on the 31st August 1957 (our Independence Day), the Malaysian federation is formally established on this day in 1963. This is the day when all lands of Borneo, Malaya and Singapore are united to form Malaysia.



Outfit:
Scarf: Turkuaz
Nyonya Kebaya: Melaka
Batik skirt: Miss Lily Shop
Slippers: Zara
Bag: Longchamp


So on this memorable day, I decided to wear something that's very much Malaysian, but in my own twist of course. Paired a simple embroidered Nyonya Kebaya top with a batik maxi skirt. Specifically bought a simple Nyonya Kebaya top so that I can wear it with my casual outfits when I'm back in KL as an outer cardigan or something. And usually the batik sarong are worn quite figure-huggingly, so it wasn't that all friendly to my touristy walks in Malacca hehe.. 

Here's to praying that Malaysia will remain happy, healthy and prosperous for a million more years! Being born and bred in Malaysia is definitely something I am proud of and would never trade it for anything else in the world! :)
