Sweet Embroidered Cloth Ballet Flats from China & My Sartorial Willpower



Maybe you remember this flowy green high-front-low-back top that I wore on Eid two years ago? I expressed excitement at the anticipation of wearing it with jeans in that Eid outfit post, so #goalsachieved as this is already the second time I'm jeans-ing the versatile top on the blog.

Modesty Is Priority | Pleated Dress, Rainbow Glitter Boots & Bejeweled Bag from Dubai

Usually when Ramadhan rolls around I'd already be thinking about shopping for outfits for the celebratory month of Syawal, but living part-time in two cities and the resulting exhaustion from having to travel constantly between three cities (we still have to occasionally visit Shah's homet…

My Airport Outfit (That I Didn't Wear To The Airport) | Adidas Velour Track Pants & Sneakers

Detailed Fuzzy Culottes, Off-the-shoulder Button-up & Red Mules | A Hypothetical Office Style

Is anyone else getting "office vibes" from this outfit, or is it just me?


I didn't even notice it while wearing the outfit but realised it much later during editing these photos. I don't mean "office vibes" in a negative way though, not at all; if I had a creative job i…

Favourite Abaya, Baby Speedy & Samosa Mules

I adore this old sequinned-sleeve black abaya so much that I've worn it countless times, especially to weddings. The fact that it's almost solid black allows me to treat it sort of like a "blank canvas", allowing various stylings to give a different result each time.
