Eid Mubarak to all my muslim followers. I celebrated Eid yesterday after fasting a beautiful 30 days of Ramadan. This is my outfit I wore to celebrate with my family!
About This Look
My skirt was a gem find from River Island – it was quite pricey buy I love it so much I was willing to take the plunge and buy it. It’s a great skirt to wear to celebratory events – I am one of those girls who loves anything beaded and glittery – feel me? I wore this for my 25th birthday shoot as well (here). I wanted to wear a polo neck for Eid since it’s winter in Cape Town but I couldn’t find anything I really loved. I had this polo neck made by the regular seamstress I use to make some of my custom items. She is a designer as well so she suggested we add some extra length to the sleeves to create a little ruffled effect and we paired it with a fur waistcoat. I honestly love having my clothing custom made it always feels like such a treat to have everything fit perfectly. My turban was not having a successful turban day so I opted for a loose scarf towards the end of the day (check my instagram to see what I am talking about here).
My makeup look was literally ga-mazing because I did my makeup for about 2hrs – I know it sounds crazy but I am not that quick at painting my face anymore. I would love to do some makeup tutorials on my blog really soon so I am working on that for now. Today I am hosting a VIP experience at one of my favorite makeup counters for five lucky instagram followers.

I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend !
