LIPSTICKMYOOTD: Eid in Nurita Harith

Saturday, 9 July 2016

What does Eid mean to you?

Other than marking the end of the fasting month, wearing new clothes and eating good food 24/7, it's also a month of forgiveness. I hope everyone is having a wonderful raya (celebration) so far, but in the midst of asking for forgiveness, don't forget to forgive yourself. We are definitely not perfect--we make mistakes and fall from grace sometimes. But what's important is how you rise again. What's important is we learn from it and become better people. 

(I am obviously in a Najwa Zebian trance (@najwazebian)! Her words are so captivating I wish I wrote like that!)

Wearing: Nurita Harith (@nuritaharith)

With the lovely (and tall) Reena whom I had the pleasure of meeting on Day 1!
One with the best man in the world!

Slightly obsessed with my All My Love sunnies from @quayaustralia. (Link here)

Meeting Nurita for measurements back in March!
Big thanks to Nurita for making the most amazing dress I've ever seen! Nurita Harith is such an amazing designer and one of my favourites of all time. I have always wanted to be in her signature silhouettes ever since I saw the chic Sharifah Amani in one. Nurita's workmanship is crazy-amazing and it fitted perfectly on the first fitting! I cheated. I wore a corset underneath because I KNEW I was going to continuously shove food down my throat and I did not want to be worried about my tummy. Good call, Nabeela.

Me trying on Sharifah Amani's dress but failing tremendously because she's so petite!
That's all I have for today... nothing clumsy happened to me (thank god!). I spent the first day of Eid with both my families. I got to see everyone, which was such a privilege! Anyway, I got to get back to my month-long of food adventures. Wishing everyone a splendid Hari Raya, Mohon Maaf Zahir dan Batin. Please forgive me for all my wrongdoings, from the bottom of my heart, I apologise if ever I have hurt you in anyway. Have an amazing time with your family and friends, okay? (And drive safe!... and let me know which houses serve soto!)
