OOTD: Matching Prints

Today’s Outfit of The Day is a reminisce of my summer holiday exploits in Nice, France . I took this pictures on our last day there and lost the SD card in my luggage. Well, I’ve been in the middle of moving house and guess what I’ve just stumbled upon? You’re right. My card! The joys of moving/packing. You can’t imagine the number of lost treasures/trash I have found:

-old necklace which I have only worn once.

-favourite Zara slipper which I had almost forgotten about. I just had to wear them again today. Hehehe.

-My SD memory card

-coveted stationery

-Lipgloss, lipsticks, eyeshadow all of the old and not missed.

-My sewing and knitting kit. Oh Lord, what was I thinking when I bought them? That I was going …

Gallery: A Few Nights in Paradise ( Part II)

A sequel to my previous post.

Day 2: 

After a hefty French breakfast out on the town, I made no hesitation to hit the famous Nice beach. The seas were warm and blue, just the way I like it.

OOTD: Leatha in The Summa

First off, if you had forgotten entirely about my OOTD category, I do not blame you. It has practically been non-existent in the last few months or so. I’m even shocked it got any hits at all. I have been keeping busy with work stuff and just generally getting my bearings. Anywho, the weather has been shockingly good the last few days that I’m almost able to convince myself that I’m not in England but at some posh holiday location somewhere in the South of France…Amidst all the chaos and lazying around, I’ve decided to give my outfit diary a quick well-deserved boost. 

Now you’d think, it would be a breeze getting the most marvelous shots at the best angles with just the perfect amount of lighting with weather this good. That is so NOT the case! We struggled. From end of the park to another. By the …

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: Ankara

Finally! I’ve found this after a long search. Yes, I have been on the hunt for anything in the form of ankara or African print inspired. And then one day, on the 13th of February to be exact   I was just daydreaming past Topshop when I stumbled upon this beautiful skirt. I let out a little squel. I just had to have it. 

This by no means signifies that I closing down all search parties for an African print dress, blazer, pant suit, shirt, bikini…you name it, I want it. 

Please if you know someone who’s met someone who has access to any of these ready-made wears PLEASE contact me on artbecomesyou@yahoo.com.

I wish I was one of those who could whip sit at their sewing machines and whip out showstopping pieces overnight. Unfortunately, I cannot sew to …
