Wardrobe malfunction

Celebrities have been subject to wardrobe malfunction once or twice on the red carpet. Most recently, Eva Longoria got exposed at Cannes. Frankly that is what you get for wearing plunging neckline and dress with high slits (and going commando)
Anyway, today I had my own wardrobe malfunction but contrary to some stars it was on purpose and I did not flash anyone.
I have this dress that I love but does not fit me anymore. The side zipper does not want to close. I was not willing to wait for the back fat to melt to enjoy the dress so I decided to wear it as is and layer with a cardigan.
This inspired me to find ways to wear my tight clothes. If you are curious, read my solutions here.

Dress- tailor made
Cardigan - People by Allen Solly
Leggings - Reliance Trends
Shoes - bought at Sahara fair
Earrings - Globus

I am really happy with the results. The cardigan is in a soft material but still a bit heavy for this weather. Nevertheless I like it so much I got another one in red. By Winter I may add two other colors to my closet.

I also love the Owl earrings I picked up at Globus in Inorbit mall. They are fun to wear. The shop had nice clothes and the accessories were off the chain and affordable. I wanted to return and get some more but the entire mall is closed due to a recent fire. They are making it more secure apparently. 

The Unzipped dress

Notice my shoes. There are my third pair of Chappals or sandals that I bought at a fair. I think I will just gravitate towards the three shoes this Summer, they are so comfy.
Next on my Indian shopping experience: a nice Anarkali dress and Kussa shoes.

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 …
