Is it sad to say that I’ve been storing my hair straightener in its box ever since I got it? That’s all well in itself, but that means that whenever I go travelling, I always end up wrapping it in clothes to protect it which honestly, is not the most glamorous or convenient solution.
This is a batik dress that I got on my last trip to Malaysia about two years ago. They are sold in clothing stores and tourist shops and are usually worn as in-house clothing or pyjamas (as my relatives have modeled). I chose this one purely for the pattern but when I wore it, it just looked wrong!! The shape was bad and there was a hole at the back right above where my butt is! Because of this, I’ve hardly ever worn this dress and it’s just been sitting at the back of my wardrobe taking up valuable space. (If you know how many clothes I own you will understand how valuable this space is)
After chokers have made their comeback, it seems that scarves and bandanas are having a moment as well. For a while though, I’ve seen so many people wearing beautiful silk scarves on the streets of fashion week and for me the look just exudes classiness and beauty.
Back in the day, when my mum was clearing out her closet, she gave me the handbag pictured below. It screams 90’s and 00’s so badly, all you need left is a Von Dutch trucker cap and a brown 3/4 length a-line skirt. Honestly, in my opinion, it is so ugly and therefore I never ever used it. It looks so outdated and it doesn’t go with anything in my wardrobe, and I’m not even entirely sure what the design is meant to be? But I REALLY wanted to make it work and decided it would be the subject of my next DIY.
