    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.) [+]

    Printed Snow White Denim Jacket: Something My Closet Never Knew It Needed



    I don't think I can ever stop trying to figure out what exactly my current style is. As always, I find myself at loss for wordsliterally. At times I feel like it's never going to happen. The figuring out thing, I mean. 
    I'm constantly in envy of those who seem to have it all figured out; the person who owns such a streamlined wardrobe that most people know exactly what to expect from her (or him). Sometimes I even wished I have that person's style identity because honestly it would simplify shopping a whole bunch (plus I wouldn't be having all these needless dramatic style identity "crisis").

    I saw this printed Snow White denim jacket hanging in the Disney x Meters/Bonwe section (where I also got this Mickey patch jeans and Mickey printed jeans) and I knew immediately I GOTS TO OWN IT.
    OK so I own a denim jacket that looks exactly like this Snow White one from the front but when you turn around in it it's like ka-pow


      Now, lusting after this jacket must say something about my current style, right? What do you think it says?

          You most definetly HAVE a personal style Liyana! When you say, "I just had to have it" you are creating one aspect of your personal style. What you love to wear, even when it reflects just one aspect of your darling personality you're style evolves. Why would you want to have just one focus?
          You're too young to commit. Also the fact that you can't commit is a GOOD thing. Clearly you're not a slave to the trends that some young women follow a little too blindly.
          I LOVE your Snow White jean jacket and your cobalt blue hijab and those cool red print pants. GREAT STYLE LIYANA! !

          1. I hear you, Judy. I do envy those who've figured their style out (I'm not sure why but I just dooo), but I like a bit of everything too much so I find it hard to nail down just one particular style for myself. I do find that there are some outfits in this blog from the past one year that I won't choose to re-wear, which is a sign of evolving, I know. I'm just going to see where this thing goes...

            I'm glad that you think my not being able to commit to a style is a good thing, I never thought of it that way. This might be weird but I find the line "Clearly you're not a slave to the trends that some young women follow a little too blindly" flattering, so THANK YOU for that. I think of myself as someone who enjoys trying out whatever new trends that crop up in the scene but originality is always something I strive for in my style, too.

            I was worried my jacket would be a bit much for some people but so far I've gotten thumbs-up from plenty of people, and the fact that you approve means a lot to me. Thank you for your comment, Judy, so thoughtful and kind, as always <3

          Just a thought...Are you measuring yourself against other hijabi women or the general population of young women of your overall age group.
          Also, a possible tip; great dresses, good prices on VIPME. Give it a whirl!

          1. More against the general group of women, yes.

            VIPME looks great, but still pricey for me! I like to go for $25 below (that's why I love sales), and I've always preferred shopping in person, because trying out clothes to check the fitting is VERY important to me!
