Flowers(and accessories) that make my everyday look a bit "funner"

It has been so hot lately that I have not put any effort into "dressing up". I usually wear a jean and a shirt or a tube dress to walk (and get on the bus) around Naka Ku. But I wanted to change a bit today. So on my way to city hall (to get my resident card) and China Town I decided to add a few accessories to my outfit.  This is what I wore:


Outfit of the day

Red lace tank- Factory 2 U
White top - Ross
Calvin Klein Jeans- Ross
White scarf with red roses- bought years ago in Japan for nothing
Dollhouse Lomo Sandals- Ross
Hand of Fatimah necklace- bought at home
Japanese design corsage- Daiso Isezakicho
Silver ring- bought in Vivre Yokohama years ago



Red roses scarf



Dollhouse Lomo sandals



Hand of Fatimah necklace and Japanese design corsage



My favorite ring

You ask me what is special about today's outfit (because I wear the same variation everyday, particularly this top) and I would tell you that it is the accessories. I love the scarf for its simplicity and colors. The shoes add a little funk to everything. I like the length and looseness of the jeans but they failed me today because it rained a bit, and the hem of the pants got wet. I managed to wrap up the hem to avoid the pants to get any wetter. By doing so, the ankle strap of the shoes got to be seen.

While walking in China Town, I even heard a Japanese teenage girl say that I was stylish. It made me happy (Note to oneself: almost anything that foreigners do is stylish for Japanese people, so there is nothing to be thrilled about)

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

All dressed up to say goodbye to 2017!

2017 is coming to an end.

What a whilrwind this year has been! Everything I knew and valued has been shattered. Everything I ever wanted came true but with a huge price. Yet, I am hoping that it was for the best.


Scarf -taken from an Indian outfit Velvet shirt - (so old) gift from my Dad Pleated skirt -thrifted Leggings - India Shoes - Next Bag - Fair in India Ring - (so old) HM Pearl necklace - DIY  For one, I grew tremendously this past year. I started doing adult things, some things I never thought I would do or ever want to do again. But so is life. I lost a lot but I gained a lot as well. I learned every single day about life in general, love, family, work ethics, myself. I am getting to know who I am and what I am capable of. I know I am strong, I am resilient. I also know I am older (found out two gray hairs this year) and not as pretty as I used to be. But that is alright. I now think that it is okay to be selfish, to put myself first, to love myself before anyone else. I …
