MONDAY À LA MODE: All Black Weekend

Let's start off the Monday with a bamm, peeps! Time is definitely fleeting by, that being said, Ramadhan is just around the corner! Who's eagerly waiting for its arrival like I do? :D

Spent the weekend yesterday to attend IlmFest Islamic conference at PICC with my friends. As per expected, these type of conferences never seemed to fail me (or everyone else I hope). I love how laid-back it was, meaning all the talks were held in one main hall, as compared to Twins of Faith where various talks were being held at the same time and you specifically had to choose which one you wanted to go to. I didn't enjoy that concept that much cause I would feel at lost if I were to be at conference A, while conference B was going on in a different hall with an equally damn good topic!

Anyhoots, this is what I wore to Ilmfest--Day 1. I chose to wear this mysterious black maxi dress underneath an oversized outer kimono. You know me, I just cannot wear a maxi dress on its own haha..

Albertine Maxi dress: Poplook
Outer kimono: H&M
Bag: Alexander Wang

I jumped into the bandwagon of being dUCked, cause as you might or might've not know that I'm in the verge of finding a new scarf style/material for everyday wear cause I'm so bored with maxi shawls haha. But you'll still see me in 'em cause I love how un-stubborn they are--when wrapped.

And I'm sure most of you want to know my verdict after using this gorgeous Duckscarf, right? Well, here's my honest and unbiased opinion: I loveee the material, it's so remarkably light and easy to iron and flows nicely when draped. I love how it's not sheer and not too slippery like silk. The size dimension is just perfect. I love the unique stitching on the edges, and I love the packaging (who doesn't?). But what I'm not a fan of, is how it works on the face. I believe this scarf works well with a loose wrap style instead of pinning it under your chin like I did here. I dunno, it's not Shea-friendly on the face area hehe.. But of course, this is very subjective. It might work really well on your lucky girl, you! And since I'm a firm believer of constant learning and improving for the better, then it's all okay since this label is so very new. If you're reading this D, take note! haha.. 

See you in my next post ;)
