Finding color themes to go with winter and of course the turkey and mashed holidays.. thanksgiving!
So I recently discovered Reebonz online which made life much easier for me when I shopped for some of my favorite brands with a click of a button. Which brings me to this next point of discussion, the Chloe bag..
My favorite item for this season is this velvet burgundy Chloe beauty! Ahh I truly based the entire outfit on the bag as soon I got my hands on it! Paired with a wide cuff knit top along with brown slim fit trousers.
You always have the easy choice of putting on any pair of nude shoes for an outfit like this just merely to stick with the color theme. I mean at this point I’m sure you all have noticed that my preference has always been the nudes!
Wishing you all a thanksgiving filled with turkeys, gravy, and fatty desserts

A weekend away from home..
Featuring Kempinski hotel mall of the emirates and my weekend getaway staying at their recently launched Aspen Ski Chalets.
First off, being a resident in the UAE the chances of seeing actual snow is slim to none. So, having to wake up to the view of the snowy slopes of Ski Dubai by the fire place felt absolutely sublime! The spacious bedrooms, the walls, the kitchen, ahh that marble bathroom was literally everything!
The phrase “home away from home” works perfectly with this.. Onto my outfits for this weekend’s getaway, I wore my favorite Asos jeans paired with a sassy cropped top.
Moving on to a light blue ruffle dress to go with the Spanish paella I had for dinner hahaha.. cheeky I know, but I had to go for it!
I honestly am counting the days to my next visit at the hotel, thanking it for the memories..

After spending so much time in preparation and anticipation for my first ever abroad fashion week, sharing this milestone with my best friend who I had the pleasure of styling as well, I am so excited to share my looks throughout this fabulous week!
I’ve taken so much time prepping myself for the streets of Milan and on my first ever Milan Fashion Week show I decided to go with the trendiest of items this year and strut my way through the first show in my casual denim on denim pick of the day.
Wearing a custom handmade denim jacket for the cool winter breeze paired along with this high waist mom jeans with flared frill hem. As for the shoes, looking for chic on the casuals, my new pair of gold block heeled mule sufficed! Making my statement in denim

It begins with what they call a “fadeaway”
Stripes and a beautiful pastel blue top fading into one another!
The work done on this piece is absolutely stunning.. A vision of art and that is something I adore about fashion. It’s not always outfits and clothes, it’s creativity and artistic ability!
I am generally inspired by little things.. Things that don’t necessarily stand out but do have a creative aspect about them.
I really didn’t need to do much with this outfit.. Accessories none! I wanted to wear a pair of nude shoes but went with brown for a small change in the pastels unit. Straight hair, simple make up.. I practically stood there for twenty minutes snapped photos in different plain backgrounds and they all worked! When inspirations turn passions into reality..
If that’s not art then I don’t know what is!

Art.. Fascinations and abilities to create unique perspectives on how portraits define differentiation. It’s almost as if it purposely blends in yet stands out in the same time! This one is more on blending in..

A general overview of an outfit that was purely based on a hairstyle and a pair of comfortable shoes..
The comfort, the uniqueness, the standouts.. This is “The Trainer”
Been overwhelmed with different places around the city that offer such wonderful aspects to life.
An absolutely Stunning and colorful line filled with energy is Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2016 collection..
Got me twirling around on my tip toes..
Take a deep breath.. It’s now time for a mixture of some of my favorite shades of colors.. Before that though; here’s one for wearing clothes every possible way you could!
Sometimes with all that’s going on around you, you forget to pause and take a breather.. To look around and take it in! To walk, to live, and just be yourself!
Be your own motivation, be your own guide, be confident, and be an achiever!
Whether it were the red roses, the chocolates, the cards, or the company your surrounded with; on February 14 we like to dress up!
We like to get fancied up and a pair of hot red Kurt Geiger shoes along with this lace white and soft pleats black bottom IRIN jumpsuit should do it! But then again we also need to look at the bigger picture here..
Maybe sometimes I put on clothes to boost my confidence, maybe sometimes I try new things to feel a new sense of excitement I’ve never felt before, but one thing I never do is let my clothes wear me!
It’s almost Valentines.. A day people get to celebrate with their loved ones all around the world! Truly one of my favorite occasions because I get to witness the entire world celebrate love all at once and that doesn’t really happen so much.
My “Hot Seat” post highlights the new look I just got and I have to admit I wasn’t really sure about it but it grew on me.. Right before I had my hair makeover by darkening the routes and brightening up the low lights (Ombre style), I had this shoot!
Feeling a sense of excitement to being part of an environment so supportive and empowering women all around the world. I was invited to be one of the ladies on the hot seat at her hub event and was asked a couple of questions on how I started my journey and what my days look like..
Always in trend and never gets old.. VINTAGE!
I always wondered how it would’ve been for me to be born in the 60’s – 70’s era! If I had the chance to travel back in time and spend an entire day, I truly believe I would love every second of it!
here Sharing with you our Abu Dhabi street style moments, filled with laughs and so much fun!
Sweats for comfort and ripped jeans for casuals.. Those sandals though are what I based the entire outfit upon!
It’s about time that I start wearing line midi skirts to work! Paired with a striped knit top with gold side buttons.. “fit and flare”!
Definition of comfort in my book is not being held back.. A simple do.
The black long sleeve dress with white vertical stripes. A very casual look with a messy ponytail for a hairstyle. There is the simple side of comfort.
Just before the sunset I walked in an alley with nothing but white walls and oh yes the beautiful sunset.. I was wearing my black sweater paired along with my ballerina skirt that I got back with me from Italy.
I spent the first couple of days of this beautiful new year with the preparations of my ’16 objectives and goals list! Such an exciting period of time this is. It’s almost the 1 year anniversary of the launch of DEEFORDANA and I’m filled with joy for all the love and support I’ve gotten from all you beautiful people.
2015 has been an accomplishment itself. I am honestly did not expect to achieve so much in such a short period of time!
2015 was the mark of a beginning to my dreams aspiring to be working amongst the best within the FASHION industry.
Fringed skirts, tops, or even accessories are some of my favorite trends of 2015. Along with patterns and yes of course the all time trend and favorite pick of mine.. Red lipstick! It just never gets old!
Where magic is created, it puts a smile on all our angels, it creates a dynamic world where we for a couple of minutes relive our childhood dreams..
almost instantly creating a type of happiness we always wanted to be in! A white angelic dress I fell so inlove with a year ago and had to wear it again.. didn’t want to take it off! It’s a perfect fit for the image I had in my mind as soon as my eyes grasped sight of the carrousel ride..
White could never be complicated a reason why I love the color so much! Wearing it with comfortable brown flats along with a couple of accessories is just how I ever imagined this shoot to be, what’s left was pretending for a couple of minutes that we’re children again..
Live in a world filled with Carrousels
