    Black Robe & Champagne Statement Mules


    I call myself a "colour chaser" (seriously, it used to be in my Instgram bio even) but I'm not opposed to an all-black outfit either. I definitely understand the appeal of dressing oneself in black head-to-toe  or in my case here, almost all black head-to-toe.



      Just like any other colour, black seems to have different shades too (if you need proof, just test a bunch of liquid black eyeliners from different brands guysss) but unlike other colours, pairing shades of black together is practically foolproof.

      Most of my wardrobe purchases were discoveries I made in stores themselves, meaning they were not things I set out to buy when I stepped into their stores  which is how most people we know shop anyway, am I right or am I totally right?

      I love being pleasantly surprised when I find something that I immediately fall in love with and must have in my closet, but for some reason finding this witchy, perforated-like black robe felt like a true marvel! I think the facts that I'm a hijabi and for 5 days out of 7 every week I'm the "throw-anything-clean-on" kind of dresser mean I will be getting a whole lot of use out of this easy casual robe.

      (Side note: It does need a little ironing, annoyingly, but hey if no one sees the wrinkles on this blog or Instagram, did the wrinkles even really happen?)




      By the way, I am UHBSESSED with these champagne coloured mules. They were one of my Singapore scores and I find it hard not to wear them with every single outfit I put on. I'm not very happy with how these photos turn out so I'm looking forward to wearing them again very soon just for them to make another appearance on Affordorable!

            2. I feel my best in a total black outfit. Can't help it, I just love it! Fantastic mules.

              1. Yes, I noticed that black makes a constant appearance in your outfits! More than the other bloggers I follow.

                I rarely wear a total black outfit out, but I think I should do it more often - and perhaps add a pop of colour here and there!

            3. I like your new headliner/ logo Liyana! Red is always a color that attracts attention and positive associations.
              These shoes remind me of wonderful Oragami art! They are a beautiful metallic and really so unusual and classy looking. They're just wonderful!!
              The black robe looks like a practical easy piece and also like it has an open weave (?) for some nice airflow. Your graphic scarf looks very cool with the shoes. Is there just a touch of a sandy peach color in the background color of the scarf? Love, Jude

              1. I'm glad you like it, and I love what you said about the colour red. It's always been my favourite colour. I wanted to add it as an accent colour in my blog for the longest time, but I finally "took the leap" with this one!

                You're right, it does resemble origami, doesn't it? Those folds really "got" me the first time I laid my eyes on them.

                It's a button-down robe, quite unlike anything I ever owned. It can even be worn as a cool dress, but the front part is a bit short for me to wear it as one. If you have suggestions on how I should style the robe, please share my dear Judy!

            4. Ohh I totally get you about being a "colour chaser!" That's me too :) But definitely black is classic for a reason and you look amazing! I love the little metallinc and gold touches. Brilliant!

              1. Thank you Mary! And yes, an absolute classic - pretty much everybody looks great in black.
