    is a virtual space where Liyana Aris documents her evolving modest personal style, which is based on the art of looking casually stylish while still remaining modest and doing it all on a budget; about 93% of her closet are filled with affordable things. (PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    Casual Weekend Date Outfit




    T-shirt: MNG | Jacket: Jeanswest | Pants: MNG

    My 5-year-old Jeanswest denim jacket is definitely one of my most treasured piece of clothings. It's not easy for me to find a denim jacket that fits well around my hips so this one is a definite keeper. 

    I remember spotting it in a Jeanswest branch in Riccarton mall, in Christchurch, and thinking "I MUST HAVE THIS." I didn't have enough money with me then so I was quite agitated after having to leave the mall, wondering if they were going to sell out that very evening! As soon as I had some extra cash, I went flying to the mall immediately for this jacket.



    I discovered a tiny stall in Tropicana mall that sells scarves. The salesgirl recommended me this shocking blue one and I must say I am obsessed with it. It's the coolest tribal-inspired scarf I own.


    Loafers: VKI

    Oh, if you think the jacket is old, my pants are at least 9 years old.

    People might have the impression that I buy clothes and discard them after a while (since some people do say I shop too much), but they won't be entirely right. It might seem like I buy clothes all the time but I don't, and regardless of how often I shop, I really do treasure those really great pieces; those that fit me well and fit me comfortably. 

    The key is to keep recycling your clothes in different outfits and styling them differently!
