Although The Future Is A Little Bit Frightening

Maybe you recognize the title of this post as part of the lyric to 'Kung Fu Fighting'. The Kung Fu Panda's version and not the original one, I mean; I kind of look like I was about to present some martial art chops in this getup - fashionably yet cartoonishly, I mean, since my toleranc…

In Retrospect: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Caramel (a.k.a. Favourite Concealer EVAH)

I had a bad round of breakouts happening a few months ago that left me feeling super insecure about going out with bare skin, which was an outcome that I was very much not enthusiastic about. The "real" Liyana behind Affordorable regularly does a complete 180 degrees during weekdays than…

Demure Tent Lady For The Day

As a hijabi I always prioritise modesty over everything else, but I feel like I've always added my own flair when it comes to dressing up. One thing's for sure, though; I dial down that "flair" whenever I'm in the company of my family-in-law - especially my parents-in-law. On…

I Tried The 7-Day Sheet Mask Challenge and Here's What Happened

I know, I know, I'm SUPER late to this game, but better late than never and all, amiright?
My cousin Ira recently recommended two Korean skincare products to me - both of which I'm still testing out - so I thought I'd give my skin some extra taste of the whole Korean beauty shebang by …

For Manchester United vs Arsenal

Here's what I wore to see the recent Manchester United vs Arsenal match at TGV Cinema on Saturday. Remember this Adidas x Manchester United sweater?  They put on Astro channel 813, which isn't HD, so the quality is pretty crap if I'm being a hundred percent honest. That itself isn'…

A Little Off Your Rocker

It's not every day that I want to go out the door wearing a polka dot cape top over of a long oversized white shirt on top of a pair of culottes, and continue to add polka dot socks and super chunky derby shoes that are not meant for walking, and oh let's not forget that patent black lips …

Men's Plaid Shirt for Women + Ripped Jeans

Have you ever had a morning when your goal was to look cute yet feel comfortable at the same time (and like a pro procrastinator, you didn't plan out the perfect outfit the day before) so you spent one and a half hours trying on about twenty tops, three skirts, four pair of jeans, and mentally…

A Little Masculinity + A Whole Lotta Femininity

Basically, the perfect "recipe" for an outfit that's a hundred percent in line with my own personal style.  I started experimenting with androgynous fashion a few years ago. It started with oversized blazers and borrowed jeans from Shah, but obviously it's never been about '5…

Draped

If you read the baju kurung outfit post in which I talked a little about the Malay wedding culture, I promised that I would show you guys a picture of the beautiful bride and groom - and I'm going to deliver my promise by giving you this link to a photo of them, which you should totally check …

Oversized (and Camera Update!)

I'm very happy that my Samsung camera is fixed! It was just a loose screw that made the shutter get stuck, so I'm really glad it wasn't anything more serious. Shah and I started to get into our stride again with outfit shoots this past weekend, and I can't wait to share them with y…

Denim Jacket, Adidas Floral Tee & Layering Pants With Skirt

I'm a gal who first and foremost dresses for herself and for her husband second, but when I was getting ready to go to the Mercedes AMG x Petronas' drivers meet-and-great (Note: Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are baes), I really wanted to look as cute - I mean, as presentable as possible,…
