OOTD: Golden

gold sequin nye outfit a

Living my life like it’s golden by Jill Scott is one of my favourite songs. It’s all about living in the moment and treasuring every moment. Living in every moment like it’s your last. It’s New Years Eve and of course sequins and bold metallics serve as the perfect elements for a perfect night out look. But this is more than just an NYE outfit idea. However flamboyant you decide to look tonight. Let it be more than just an outfit. Let it be your attitude. Let it be your voice. Make your personality stand out as much as that sparkly dress…

ABY Life: I Was On The Wendy Williams TV Show!

By Posted on 4 702

So I was featured on Wendy Williams TV Show….***Squealing****

Here’s how it happened:

Someone who works on The Wendy Show contacted me on Instagram and said the loved my #LittleWhiteDress outfit as seen below. And they would like to feature it on the show during the Wendy InstaGlam segment. I was like yeah, do whatever. LOL. You know how Instagram is, fake impostors here and there. But I still submitted the picture and gave my consent anyway. What did I have to loose right?

The next day, before I knew it I had an array of messages saying we’ve just seen you on Wendy’s show? I’m going, WHAAAT?! No way. I never win anything. This outfit wasn’t even an OUTFIT. The picture quality isn’t even great. If I had to pick a photo of myself to air on National …

OOTD: Paisley

One of my favourite quotes is ‘If you can’t go a day without thinking about something, then by all means pursue it.’

Now, I’ve had a myriad of emails and calls from friends, readers and family who are highly suspicious that I may have be going a little overboard with the shopping.

I’d like to put their worries to rest here and now by saying I’m not.  Cue the suspicious piercing eyes.

(Gives in). Okay I am a little. But. I have a method.

-First off, I’m a thrift hunter. I sniff out thrift shop bargains for a living. I live for them. The thrill about thrift shopping is that you never know what you’ll find. Oxfam, Salvation Army, Snooper’s Paradise, Cow Vintage etc aresome of my fave high street thrift/vintage stops. My leather cross-body bag is totally a thrift …

OOTD: Playing It Straight

Hey peeps! What have you been doing to keep busy in my absence? Hehe. I have not put up an outfit in AGES. I apologise. As for me, I’ve been tidying up my closet. And by tidying I mean, reshuffling. You heard that right. I’m having one of style epiphanies where you feel like you want to experiment more with your style choices and take fashion risks. And it’s really exciting!  I can’t elaborate on this now because I want to surprise everyone (myself included).

Nevertheless, at the moment, I’m loving the new trend this 2013 which so far has been dominated mainly by monochrome, stripes and two-tone. Read my post on Must-Have Skirts this season. I couldn’t wait to wear my H&M stripe blouse and mauve pencil skirt. I paired them with my Zara seriously-stylish heels which I have been so …

OOTD: Square Holes

You must be sick by now of my excuses of where I’ve been, why I’ve been where I’ve been, what I’ve been up to and yada yada. Frankly, I am too. I have no excuse but damn pure laziness and cuddling-weather which makes me want to lie in all day and watch back to episode of my favourite tv shows (ie Peep Show and Modern Family). How I manage to get up every morning and make my way through the fog to work is a miracle entirely. I swear, I wish I could call in and say, I’ve broken a nail, I can’t turn up today. And that would be the honest truth! Like frankly, don’t you have days when the silliest of things just make you feel like lying in and wallowing in your self-pity with only tubs of ice-cream and reruns of project Runway to comfort you? …

OOTD: Colour Me Yellow

Hiya fashion lovers, been putting off my blog posts for a while now. Way too many things going on. It’s been a busy few last weeks and I feel exhausted. Check my Instagram for more regular updates when I’m too lay to post:((  @msaidyl1.  But I’ve been so wanting to put up this OOTD that I just can’t wait any longer. Coloured suits have been trending like crazy lately. I love bright colours especially yellow so my look is inspired by Solange Knowles and Leigh Lezark who all effortlessly rocked the yellow suit.

*One thing you have to remember when going shopping for a coloured suit is you absolutely should not expect to find a pre-matched pair sitting in the shop and waiting for you. be more open-minded. Buy separates and match them. This option is usually cheaper as it …
