Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!

Cheap And Chic

Dress: Own design, Leggings: Gap, Belt: from Rome, Shoes: Payless, Bag: Manama Souk, Earrings: Stall in Autumn Fair, Rings: Gifted, Watch: Swatch

Today, without realizing, I dressed up in unbranded, thrifty attire. Let's start with my dress. I designed this dress after getting the material from the local cloth market. It was stitched by my mom, and the crochet lace is also done by her. (I know, the lace is beautiful). It's one of my fave dresses. I love, love, love paisley print and the black and pink colour combination. 

My handbag is also from the local market. An ex-colleague of mine had the same bag, I asked where she got it from and was pleasantly surpirised when she said a tiny shop in Manama souk. I promptly got one for myself. The price was very reasonable. The earrings are a lucky find, bought for a song from an Irani stall in the annual Autumn Fair. My belt is from a boutique in Rome and again, it was easy on the wallet. These leggings from Gap were also inexpensive, so were these shoes from Payless. All in all, I don't think any one item on me costed more than BD 10. (excluding my watch... oh, and my other 2 earrings.)

I am SO proud of myself. See? I can be cheap and chic too. Enjoy your weekend!
