I really meant it when I said I had virtually no time to shop for my Eid outfit, so thankfully I had this super dramatic red abaya dress to fish out from my closet. It has been sitting in my closet for at least four years, just waiting for the right time to make its (re)entry into my life.

Although...in all honesty, it's a tad 
too dramatic, I might have a hard time figuring out when and where I could wear it to next, guys, oop.

I remember wanting the abaya so bad not only because of its delightfully vibrant red hue (my favourite colour!) but also for its detailed neckline that resembles the fold-over part of kimono — only it's a delightful detail hidden from your sight underneath my hijab, unfortunately.

When it came to accessorising, thankfully everything came together pretty easily. The floral scarf and the bright pink mules were already in my possession and seemed to go with the abaya, so the only purposeful purchase that I got exclusively for this year's Eid was the red earrings, bought the day before Eid itself when I sneaked to the nearest mall for a bit.

Basically, my Eid outfit philosophy this year: throw everything that's in the same family colour, add in an "off" colour amidst the monochromes (pink + red is such a fab colour combo right now anyway) and hope for the best!

If only every Eid outfit could involve as little effort as this one, but I no longer have any other special abaya or traditional wear stowed in my closet. I guess I'll need to just plan way ahead for my next Eid!

On another note: absolutely looking forward to re-wearing the earrings and mules again in a regular outfit for this blog soon
