Apr - Jun 2015 Outfit Recap

A selection of some of things I've worn. I've been into my crossbody bags a little more, as much as I love my Noctambule it is a pain in the @zz to shop with. I've been feeling my navy kelly lately. A hands free bag especially comes in handy during iftar! Ramadan Kareem to those that celebrate it.

As usual underlined items were added this year. My new "old" bag is Tom Ford era YSL, and the print is identical to my J. Crew flats. Not bad for designs 7+ years apart! And the hat was a gift, I don't watch baseball EVER!!!

  1. I actually really like Look 3 in the first batch of pics, with the white watch and white sandals--though I would opt for a more blocky sandal like Birks or those two-strap slides/slippers of which there are a thousand dupes. For me the focal point is the simplicity of your silhouette, but the pants have a drape, then my eye goes to the watch and your black tee.

    My "streetwearish" side wants white Converse or Stan Smiths though for that look :P

    Pret, if non-Muslim folks were to show up to a Ramadan iftar buffet at a restaurant is that odd? My friends told me about several in my area that serve really good food, and I'd like to go. I'm just wondering if there are any customs to be mindful/respectful of when I attend?

    1. If your friends invited you, I don't see why not. I would just dress discretely, (no shorts or low cut tops), just to be on the safe side. If you're going to a mosque, I would wear long sleeves & a head scarf. And I would wait until you see other people eating if you're going to be arriving near sunset, just to make sure you're not "breaking your fast" before everyone else. Just my 2 cents, disclaimer: I'm American and not from a "big Muslim culture."

    2. Good points re: dress code. The friend who suggested it to me is not of the faith either, and I'd most likely be going alone. From the Yelp reviews of the restaurants that do it, it seems that you'd have to wait anyway--they close up temporarily and have people queue up for the iftar service, and then they stagger people in so the buffet line isn't so crowded.

      Thank you.

  6. Can I ask if the Furla bag in the last picture of the second set is a current model? I've been trying to find something similar (that shape, no zips, throw everything in, kind of boxy but not too boxy) but it's quite hard.

  7. Mine is from 2011, the style is called "Futura". I like Furla's older models, try eBay, outlets, flash sales for the older styles.

  8. hi, late to this post .... everything looks so nice on you ... may I ask how tall you are? I'm 5'1" and pretty sure I couldn't carry things the way you do.
    Is there a name for the Target tee, like Mossimo or something?
