Finally bringing to you my last winter outfit of 2018, worn on my last day during my Seoul trip last month.

    Continuing with my "collector" aspirations, this houndstooth suit definitely has a long-term place in my closet. If you didn't know it, I have a thing for matching sets; for some reason they get relatively worn a lot so, you know, in a way, they can be considered as "investments".
    (PS: Also a good excuse to buy more.)

      By the way, can we talk about my bejeweled sock boots for a sec?

      As a result of my love-hate relationship with long socks  which are handy for my hijabi self, who occasionally throw sense out the window and opt for midi-length pants and skirts instead of the more practical maxi-length  I am all for the sock boots trend as wearing them means one less layer on my feet during hot/humid Malaysia days. 

      I'm already getting loads of wear out of these burgundy pair, and I foresee the same with this bejeweled pair.

      Also, shocker, they are actually comfortable, although they might not look it; I was half-expecting to limp halfway throughout my day out in Seoul (I live dangerously occasionally) but at no point did I wish I was wearing sneakers instead.

        Bejeweled score, amiright?

        I know I said I wanted to talk about them only for a sec but seriously they're a real steal in my book, especially considering they were discounted like crazy when I got them.

        I might even pair these with an abaya or traditional wear during this upcoming Eid, we'll see — and on that note, Ramadhan is less than one month away, OMG.


        I wish my camera could capture the micro-houndstooth pattern better though! What do you think of the  idea of a houndstooth suit? A little controversial, or you'd totally wear it out yourself?
