Runway skirt

Another Saturday, another week end. The weather is supposed to be bad, but they said it would rain the entire week and it did not. I just went out to do the usual errands: groceries. I should like Saturdays more but it just hard when you are woken up by kids at 6 in the morning, then you get to spend the rest of the day cooking two elaborate meals, and running to buy groceries. In fact the only highlight of the day is the small hours between breakfast and lunch when I get to check my favorite bloggers or blog myself.
Anyway today for another boring Saturday, I got to wear this:

Scarf - Walmart
Cardigan - Thrifted
Top - Ross?
Skirt - Thrifted
Ring - Forever 21

I bought this skirt last year in Summer. I loved the fullness of it but also the Indian inspired design. Yet I have not worn it much because it is too long, and it gives me kind of a muffin top. Plus it is not the best skirt to run with (like when you have to run down the hill to catch the bus).

Nevertheless I really love it because it makes me feel like a model. The way the skirt moves when I walk, I can almost pretend that I am in Paris Fashion week. And when the wind lightly sweeps it up, I could almost die of happiness. And I wanted to be happy today so I wore this wonderful skirt on an ordinary day.

Do you have clothes that make you feel like you were a model?

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 …
