Evening my darlings!
How are you all? Hope you have all had a FAB week … I will be honest, I have not had the best(update in my next post though loves!). I just want to say how thankful I am for everything I have and what I have been given … Make sure you make the most of your time with loved ones, don’t hold grudges, and if you are missing someone … CONTACT THEM! Wow… I don’t think I have gotten this serious in my posts before .. I guess I am getting more comfortable with you all my loves! I really do class you all as my friends… you are so sweet and mean a lot to me!
Anyways … I am so so excited to put a fashion post up .. it has been quite a while since my last one! I am loving having a variety of posts on my blog though… we were discussing branding in a Twitter chat recently.. and although I don’t have a specific “brand” .. my main aims are to inspire other girls in dressing modestly yet being fashionable, make-up/DIY tips, and how to have a positive lifestyle! I would love to know what you guys think of my blog, what your favourite types of posts are, and if there is anything you want me to write about!
RIGHT STOP RAMBLING SAIRA … onto the outfits!
So… I actually was contacted by the LOVELY Chloe at LYDC London after taking part in the #FBLchat on Twitter. They kindly gifted me (EEEEK!) one of their bags* (that I got to choose …tehehehe), and wanted me to show how it could be styled for day and night! Now, whether I am going out during the day, or for an evening out, I usually ALWAYS carry a big bag. This is because I like to carry so much in my bags.. BECAUSE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN RIGHT.. I like to be prepared :).
What a beauty 😛 :D♥
So I’ll tell you a little more about the bag before showing you how I styled it! I chose a black bag (standard :P), with some gorgeous fur detail on the front! It is also that gorgeous structured/briefcase style, which is my FAVOURITE! This style of bag is SO classic and can be worn for both work and going out in the evening! I was also so HAPPY with the quality of the bag… as they are great value for money! It has one main compartment, those cute little pouches that can store your phone/lipsticks/other random stuff you don’t need, and a large pocket at the front! It also comes with a long strap so you can wear cross-body too! I think this bag would be great for University and work.. as well as those evenings out where you want a classic bag that will go with more or less everything!
So my darlings.. let’s see how I styled this bag during the day!♥
I think this would be the perfect look for University, or even a day out shopping! I think the button up shirt and the furry gilet give it a very comfortable look! I have also added the long strap and shown how you can wear it cross body (which I DEFINITELY prefer :D). This really gives it more of a laid-back vibe! I also wore my usual winged eyeliner, and Makeup Revolutions lipstick in “Rebel with Case” .. It is a gorgeous berry shade.. perfect for everyday! What do you guys think? 😀

After a quick outfit change (and slightly more make-up.. hehehe) here is how I styled the bag for an evening out (Let’s just pretend I was actually going out in the evening guys, hehe :D).

White Top – New Look
Long Shirt – Market (!!)
Jeggings – Zara
Boots – Primark
Bag* – LYDC London
Hijab – Market
I added darker colours to my outfit, red lips, and also got rid of the strap on the bag! I normally like to stick to quite classic pieces when I go out (it is very unlikely that you will see me in a lot of glitter/bright colours)… so having a very classic bag just fits my style perfectly! LYDC definitely have an amazing range of classic bags, as well as more modern styles (I am LUSTING after their faux fur rucksack!).
So that is how I would transition this bag from day to night! I LOVED this post so much … because I am the type of girl who HATES swapping over her bags, so having a bag that I can take from a shopping trip to dinner in the evening is ALWAYS a win! You all know how much I love my outfit posts too loves :P. The style of the bag is so beautiful, and the faux fur design on the front really adds a stunning touch! I WAS SO HAPPY WITH IT ♥
LYDC London have such an amazing collection for Autumn/Winter 2015 (I have also seen on Twitter that they have had a peek of their A/W 2016 range .. JEALOUS!). They really do have something for everyone, whatever your style! Whether you like huge bags like me, small cross body bags, rucksacks or clutches.. I am so sure you will find something you love. Have a peek at their site: http://www.lydc.co.uk/… see if you can squeeze in a gift for someone (or yourself) before Christmas!
Do let me know if you find something you love! If you need some ideas, check out my Wishlist post HERE. You can also get 10% off anything using the code “SAIRA10” … because they are just the NICEST GIRLS EVER!♥
I hope you liked this post my lovelies (you got two outfits in one muhaha!)… It definitely was hectic getting in two sets of outfit photos, one after the other (as I was trying to beat the upcoming rain AND get good lighting.. oh the struggles!). Fashion posts are definitely one of my FAVOURITES to do… and I really hope you like them darlings!
Right dolls… hope you all have a wonderful evening …. I am catching up on The Apprentice, and then will be snuggling into bed! I literally cannot WAIT for a few extra days off at Christmas time. I will catch you in my next post! Make sure you follow my Twitter/Instagram so you stay up to date!
Lots of Love,
