Green is My Hue. Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

green is my hue

I went to East Coast Park with one of my girlfriends today and we stumbled upon this spot and totally loved it.¬†The tree branch was hanging and it was the perfect spot to sit and relax on it. I didn’t mean to wear green and be matchy-matchy with nature today, but I am loving the shades of green in this photo. Bright green, blue green, brownish green… Seeing all this green in this photo makes me feel peaceful and relaxed surrounded by nature, being at the beach… A timely reminder for me to relax and take a breather in the midst of the craziness of everything that’s going on. Alhamdulillah. ūüôā

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

A Touch of Champagne Pink For The Big Day

I’ve previously mentioned in my old blog years ago that I wanted to make my own wedding dress. And that I didn’t think I was crazy enough to do that.

Turns out I am, a little.

I’ve already got the evening gowns settled¬†(bought them from a bridal gown sale) but for my nikah, I want to make it special.¬†Why do I want to make my own wedding nikah¬†dress? Because I can. And because¬†I want to¬†keep it as a memory.

Several years ago, I took a dressmaking course¬†and have sewn¬†outfits for other occasions¬†before¬†but¬†of course, a wedding dress is totally different. But since I¬†want to make my¬†nikah¬†outfit simple, I¬†think it should be quite manageable, no? I bought some fabrics – laces and satins – from Pasar Baru at Bandung last year and have some designs in mind. Now here’s praying that it would be executed well, InsyaAllah.

Meanwhile how’s this dress for some inspiration. The chiffon, the layering, the texture and the touch of sweet champagne pink colour of the fabric and the ribbon, everything about it is just so dreamy…
