    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.) [+]

    You Can Always Be Overdressed




    I never get the chance to wear this paded bohemian-inspired cropped jacket in Malaysiait's just much too humid for it! (What else is new.) I've only worn it once early last year, and I just had to seize the chance to put it on once again when I was in Tokyo recently, and pull a double-denim duty alongside it.

    I can't wholeheartedly agree with the "You Can Never Be Overdressed" saying on my tee. I wear the top just because I think it's kitschyand actually because I'd feel bad about wearing it only once; it was purchased on a whim right before I watched a movie in a cold cinema, where I layered it on top of whatever outfit I had on at the time. Anyway I doubt that statement would be taken seriously by anybody reading it.
    Well, at least I hope it won't...

    I think you can be overdressed; I ain't gonna wear a ballgown when attending my best friend's birthday party, am I? That'd be such a douche move. If it were my own birthday party then that's a whole other story.

    And you definitely can be underdressed, too. I'm a believer in dressing appropriately for certain occasions. But not to say I've got it all at the back of my handno, I wish! But hey, one never stops learning.

    But one thing's for sure: it's always better to be overdressed than underdressed.

    Right? Thoughts?

    1. A tricky question Liyana!
      I did give it some thought and I think that I would rather be underdressed.
      I know that is not a popular choice but I would always chose to feel comfortable rather than too stuffy.
      If I turned up in jeans and you were in your ballgown I would feel momentarily awkward then get down to having fun! :oD
      Disclaimer: Obviously this does not apply to weddings or other important occasions. Then I would always be up to scratch.

      1. Well, Samantha, I guess if I ever get to go to your party I wouldn't worry about looking too fancy, hahaha! XO
