SULTRY SONGKET

Thought I'd go traditional last weekend upon attending an event I was invited to. I was rummaging through my closet and just couldn't find anything to wear! I seriously hate that feeling while seeing the mess I've made in my room *ahem from the pile of clothes*

Until, I remembered I had these adorable pieces that have yet to be worn! Luckily they look great together :D


Outfit:
Scarf:  from Palestine
Sandrina Kimono: Wonder Wardrobe
Songket skirt:  Hush_bySuriAryani (instashop)
Heels: Charles & Keith
Bag: Le sis

Songket is actually a brocade-type of Malaysian traditional fabric which has existed in our nation as early as hundreds of years ago. And usually worn by the regals and royals, due to the gold/silver threads that were used throughout the motifs on the fabric. 

The fabric itself may come off stiff, so that's why you don't see people wearing them as an everyday wear. But nowadays you can practically see songket fabrics used during weddings, eid celebrations and also formal events.

But this version I'm wearing is a printed version, making it semi-formal perfect for everyday wear. When I first saw the update my friend Suri did on her Hush label, I was like WHOA. I. NEED. YOU. And so I did! :D

So if you're planning on visiting Malaysia anytime soon, make sure you get a hold of some songket fabrics for you and your family! (Scratch that, just buy them all for you and only you muahaha).
