    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.) [+]

    H&M Kimono Top & Adidas 'Tokyo' T-Shirt (But Currently Not In Tokyo - I Wish!)


    I remember missing Paris dreadfully after coming back from living there for almost a year. I honestly thought I couldn't possibly love staying anywhere else - aside from my city in Malaysia, that is. But then Shah got involved in a project in Tokyo, where we started going back and forth to for a year and a half, staying up to a month at a time. That was when I discovered that, wow, was I SO wrong; I actually loved Tokyo even more than I loved Paris, if you could imagine that. 
    (PS: Sure thing, we can agree to disagree on which city is better because we all know Paris is like the HG city to many.)

    If you ask me today if I would want to go back and live in Tokyo - actually live there for good - I'm afraid I would hesitate, because I would be on the verge of saying yes, but I can't because I've got my whole life built here that has my dear family and friends in it.

    But I wouldn't be able to say no. It would be really, really hard to say no.

    Wearing: H&M kimono top  |  Adidas "Tokyo" t-shirt  |  draped palazzo pants from Berjaya Times Square (last worn with this Mango sweater AND the same shoes!)  |  Adidas Superstar shoes  |  Aldo lips clutch

    Well, that being said, I am totally and completely open to visiting (and living temporarily in) other cities of the world, absolutely. Who knows, I might discover a city that I could love more than Tokyo? I did love Barcelona and Madrid (even though Shah and I nearly got conned on the streets there *shudders*), and there are so many places that we haven't been to. 
    Heck, at this stage of wanderlust, I'd say yes to living in Paris again, too!

    How about you? What city do you dream to live in?
