sponsored: the tinkerbell dress

There's a really really funny but painful story behind this outfit of the day shot. 
Like I mentioned on Instagram, this outfit shot will always remain the epic shot that landed me in the a&e 20 minutes later.

I still laugh whenever I think about it, but it shall always remain a mystery to you :P
Basically, moral of the story is, 
watch where you go, be careful of what you step on. 

Yes, that is all hehe.

But before, the whole shenanigan went down, I was so excited to wear this dress out cos I really love the uneven hem of the dress. At first, I called it my Peterpan dress, then I thought Peterpan has the whole collar thing associated to him already, so why not Tinkerbell huh? OK, Tinkerbell dress you shall be. Tinkerbell dress was paired nicely with my dusty pink ribbon belt. The Tinkerbell dress also comes in Navy, if you play safe with colors and dislike green hehe.

Have I mentioned that I love Poplook's belts?
They're just so awesome la. I usually don't wear belts that cinch the waist cos they're either too big or too tiny and they don't stay put. But Poplook's belts has the whole adjustment thing so no matter what size you are, it will work for you. 

To get these items:

Recently, I've been loving all these tops/dresses that go all the way up to my knees. As usual, I will always pair my plain tops/dresses with printed pants. The floral jeans are from Zara. Floral pants/jeans must be an in thing for Zara right now cos I saw that even for their fall season, they have a lot of floral printed ones albeit dark colored. 

The scalloped flats are from Zalora (:
and lovely Cream Shawl from @asterhijab (Instagram)

I have come to a conclusion that I am truly, truly, not a heels person. 

It was a nice casual night out and I thought hmmmm, since I'm putting in very little effort for my outfit, I might as well bling this outfit with my favourite black heels right?

5-6 steps later, I thought, hmmmm, maybe I should just bring a pair of flats. 
Oh you know, just in case.

Thank God for inner-sensible-more-realistic Nadya. 

Its not that I can't walk in heels, give me a wedding or formal event, I can last all day in them. But when I'm off doing something casual like shopping or, um eating, things I do best, I just want comfort! I want to be able to zoom around and not feel any kind of discomfort! I want to be able to walk lightning speed fast and feel that nothing's holding me back, and whenever people tell me, these heels are so comfortable! I smile but deep inside, I go, omg am I the only weird person who will never ever define the increase in shoe height, comfortable?

These black heels are nice. They don't really pinch my feet. I can last all day long in them. But comfortable? comfortable? NO. Comfortable to me is, my furry bedroom slippers and my awesome sperry topsiders. 3-5 inch heels? Never. 

So to allllll the girls out there who can walk around in style wearing heels, salute you mans. Feet of steel! Hehe.

Ok, I'm done rambling. 

Here is my outfit of the day. 
I don't know how many relax-jack outfits I have but this has got to be my favourite. 

Long black cardigan + loose white tee + torn jeans (my mother hates them. Every time she sees me wearing this, she swears she'll get rid of it when I'm not at home. If I could put it under the jeans version of witness protection programme, I would. I always have this fear that one day, I come back home and its gone. Forever. But its so comfy.....sighs) + a striking colored bag that is totally off from the monochrome outfit but it works, guys. Inject some color into your outfit by grabbing that striking colored bag. 

and because my outfit is quite plain on its own, here comes my pretty black and white chevron shawl from Aster Hijab! They have a huge range of shawls with many many many designs! In my next few entries, you'll see me donning shawls from them. If you can't wait to see my entries, then hop on over to their shop and get your hands on the shawls, before they run out of stock! :D

Find them on instagram!

 I miss blogging. Its been quite awhile :(

sponsored: jewels, emerald and amethyst.

Everytime I choose something purple to wear, I have no idea what color to match it with so I always opt for a purple+black or purple+cream combination. 
 So, whoever you are, purple lovers, you must have exquisite taste.

So I was thinking, royal purple, what can I match you with? I wanted to move away from neutral tones, so I thought hmmm, must be something contrasting but at the same time, won't steal the spotlight from my royal purple Poplook skirt. 

Then I thought about jewels. 

Oh you know, those expensive little rocks.

I googled "jewels royal purple"

Ooo such beauties. 

Immediately, I rummaged my wardrobe for an emerald top. 
I only had this shiny glittery one so I thought, ah since you're going for luxe jewels, bring on the glitter and sequins. 

I do this all the time by the way whenever I'm stuck in a rut and I have no idea what color to match something with, google saves the day. Always. Heh.

So, presenting to you, my outfit. 

The beautiful draping of this skirt immediately caught my eye because it really gives you an illusion that you hiked the skirt up for that effect but nuh-uh, its the unique design of the skirt. Kind of makes it look like a pareo. 

Break away from normalcy people!
Go for contrasting colors!

Coming from the girl who usually plays safe with colors, such irony teehee.

Much love friends,
