Matchy-Matchy Chocoholic

Today I put together just the kind of outfit I like (cheap) and had just the kind of day I like today (got lots done, got good news and then skived on the net for the afternoon) alhamdulillah.

The abaya is made from material that cost me £5 at Green Street's Queens Market and is my equivalent of made-to-measure designer couture (i.e. my beloved mum sewed it up nice and simple, just the style I like it and perfectly sized). The silk scarf is a donation from Kooky Little Sister (originally from ebay) and just happened to be a match. The flower broach (£1.50 from Primark) is courtesy of Fashionista Sister and the ring belongs to one of my three sisters, but seeing as I have taken a liking to it, I don't care to enquire which one.


I don't usually like to go head-to-toe in one colour (a pale steely grey-blue, rather than the grey it looks here) unless it's black, but in a light colour like this I felt quite elegant (except every time I looked down and spotted the big flower and felt slightly silly). My only problem was shoes. I ended up whering black pumps as I couldn't work out what colour would look good with this - any ideas? (I do have a pair of grey-black and silver smart heels, but wasn't sure).

By late afternoon, my intention to eat sensibly and healthily went out the window and everyone in the office gave me change to get some mucnhies. The lady in Sainsburies went ballistic when she saw all the change - I felt very sheepish

    "the ring belongs to one of my three sisters, but seeing as I have taken a liking to it, I don't care to enquire which one." LMBO, you're bad!

  2. Assalam-alaikam Sister Mumina,
    jazakh'Allah-khairun,
    well there has to be some benefit of having all those sisters (aside from nicking their chocolate)
