THE CLOTHING LINE

February 2015 I launched my debut clothing collection 'Dina Torkia' now sold out Hamdulilah. I spent a year working on with my husband Sid, back and forth to indonesia monitoring the manufactering process and working on the media for the launch of the collection.  I've just come across some BTS shots that Alessia Gammaorta (photographer…

POSTNATAL BLUES

I've come across the term 'postnatal depression' also known as 'postpartum depression' so many times, and more during my pregnancy than ever. Skimming through various info snippets here and there on all the pregnancy and maternity websites that I found myself glued to on most nights during my third trimester! Never really giving it much thought,…

DIY |KAFTAN KIMONO

A while back I filmed and put together a little DIY tutorial on how to make a basic maxi kaftan kimono for beginners. A very basic & hopefully easy step by step guide on making this super versatile wardrobe staple to add to your wardrobe! Below you can see me styling mine..

STYLE THE BUMP | BACK IN BUSINESS

I'm back! Okay that was a short sentence, in case you hadn't noticed I haven't posted on my blog for MONTHS now. Basically, MONTHS ago I closed it down in the hopes of bringing it back with a fresh look a couple of weeks later.. that then turned into several weeks, which turned to a month and then the most part of a year! In between all of that, I fell pregnant and forgot about it completely!

LAYERS

Slowly getting a little sick of colours. It happens every once in a while, and when you see the black wave below, you know it has indeed, happened. 'The getting sick' that is. It's also surprisingly quite warm pairing jersey midi skirts with thick tights you know, compared to my baggy jeans anyway. Nothing special coming at you today, just a plain black handy look suitable for many of us accustomed to dressing 'modestly'.

SKINNY ANKLES

It's not a colour I'd usually consider for a coat, but when you find something in the SALE, it sort of changes your rules a little. I'm talking about this very PINK and VERY creased coat I picked up in H&M over the xmas holidays! Why I didn't iron this I'm yet to provide an excuse. It does look larger than the usual oversized even, but then again it is a size 18. You know what I'm like when it comes to getting things WAY too big. Even so, it's keeping me warm so far all the way down to my ankles. So I'm not even slightly worried about the extra pair of hips it's giving me in pictures!

TURBAN TYING | LIBERTYLONDON

So if you watch my youtube videos you'll know what this post is about, and be equally EGG CITED with me! Recently I had the most perfect opportunity come along my way to collaborate on a little styling project with LIBERTY LONDON. I was super excited, for reasons that are so obvious they do not need explaining, hah! No seriously, my sister and I LOVE Liberty and their fabric prints, so what perfect combination than to style one of their printed scarves! I filmed two turban looks with one of their ICONIC LIBERTY print scarves, specifically the Hera design, an a array of classic peacock feathers in gorgeous pink and blue hues.
