Fur Sleeves

1

I’ve never really thought I’d ever end up wearing something so gutsy before. And ever since I started my blog I learned a number of things, one of those things is to always step out of my comfort zone and take risks! With this in mind and the weather in the UAE, winter here doesn’t necessarily help picking out such outfits but I still didn’t care.

I was going to wear this fur (don’t worry not real fur though) sleeves jacket no matter what! It’s made by this amazingly talented local designer branded by OTT! Im always on the lookout for such genius minds and have nothing but pride in supporting it.

Fashion is truly an art and there’s no better way to honor it than by putting it on display! Yes I also did feel like a peacock but a very chic and trendy one indeed haha
Till next time

Denim lovin

Here’s what this is.. I am the girl who owns an entire closet of pure DENIM, a girl who has denim as her go-to outfit, and a girl who could never get sick of the denim on denim look! Infact, I am currently on the search for a pair of mom jeans just like the ones I’m wearing here only darker for a look I have in mind.. Involving the basic Gucci Tee and sneakers or a pair of heels to chic it up a bit.

Back to this outfit, I’ve recently discovered this awesome online boutique that I’ve become quickly obsessed with and as soon as I saw this beautiful pearls and denim cropped shirt I couldn’t help but think of adding more and more pearls to it!

Now seeing as to how I can’t really afford diamonds, I’m going to pretend that for the time-being pearls are a girls best friend. So subtle and believable! And finally, completing my look with my usual touch.. RED!

Running around the streets of Dubai from one meeting to the other while wearing this beautiful mustard off-shoulder with puff sleeves top. Yes I definitely had to stop and shoot this outfit while I strut the streets of Dubai! It’s two of my favorite trends in one and all created by the genius brains and one of my favorite designers in the UAE Bambah boutique!

had so many different ideas on how to style this top, but for a casual day I went with my comfy mom jeans to give it an 80s fashion touch!  And considering the shoes I wore, I think I did an awesome job jumping around for this shoot! 🙈

One last thing, I’m sure you noticed my hair.. (I mean I did not just wake up magically with longer hair) I had extensions on experimenting for a couple of days 🤗 what do you guys think?

Trends nowadays take us back to that wonderful 70’s & 90’s era. The vintage photo-ups, the belts and the sunnies, and most importantly the vibrant colors. We always take risks in life and so should we when pairing an outfit! Step outside your comfort zone and dare to wear the irrational; because only we could rationalize any of our decisions in our own unique ways..

The trend-setter generation that’s what I call us! I promised I’d write more about belts last post and what better way to write than with a demonstration?! I remember at some point of my younger life when my mom forced me to wear belts to hold my pants up so I wouldn’t make a fool out of myself walking around in baggy pants. Now though, belts is more of an accessory than a necessity, but an accessory that has the power to change the dynamic of the entire look!

Take this outfit for example, an over-sized sweater on an off-white pleated skirt. Very basic and well.. boring. Adding this red belt twisting it up to a knot adds life to the outfit and somehow changes the entire dynamic of the look!

1

So let us all enjoy recreating looks while adding fascinating touches here and there that could one day make people look back and relive our glory days.

Till next time..

Suit up

People always recommend going for the lighter colors for summer looks, and I am almost always one to disagree!
I could wear an all white outfit every season because well.. white outfits are everything to me.. more or less an obsession! So calming and relaxing.

As much a I want to avoid pinpointing every small detail about this outfit, I simply can’t! This suit was paired with such adequate detail and constructed to perfect a suit out of different items that could fool even myself into thinking it wasn’t just made for this! So suit up, I’m about to start.. Paired with different shades of white starting with a white blazer, creamy pants, and a pearly fringed belt! Leaving me with my final touch of sass by adding a colorful statement to this outfit, my favorite floral pumps.

actually prepared this outfit after getting my hands on this beautiful belt from my amazingly talented designer friend “Anatomi” and immediately fell in love with it!

I remember at some point when belts were a necessity and then suddenly went out of trend. Well I’m more than happy that belts became the new accessory trend which I will be covering more in detail on my next post. Stay tuned..

Merry Christmas

img_5458

Something I’ve dreamt of seeing my entire life, it would never cross many of your imagination.. and that is experiencing snow!
Yes, Traveling around the world does not accompany the luxury of seeing snow for me. A true dream come true. It took me back to my childhood making me feel like it’s Christmas finally! Oh and what a wonderful feeling it was

img_5424

Cherishing the moments I spent under the white frosty trees with absolute joy, having my family alongside me, I truly couldn’t have asked for anything more than that on such a beautiful day!
With all the love and happiness I had, I couldn’t help but share these truly wonderful moments with you.

As Christmas approaches, I wish you all love, happiness, health and prosperity to you and your loved ones. May it be a Merry Christmas to all and a very snowy cozy one indeed 🏼

Healthy Hair

2
Over the years, I’ve tried different hair products to sustain healthy hair. With
me being me, trying out different hairstyles and coloring it every now and then
is a must and could eventually cause lots of damage to the hair; like making it
weak and thinning out the roots.
3
I have to be honest, as soon as I heard about CYNOS products I was quick to
think that it was impossible to have a product with 0% sulfate, silicone, and
Parabean that could actually improve the strength of my hair.. But, I was
wrong! Trying out the CYNOS Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner for
almost 2 weeks now with every hair wash was beneficial because it didn’t feel
like I was using hundreds of chemicals to get rid of the unnecessary chemicals
on my head.
1
5
What I did was, I used the CYNOS hair mask after drying out my hair with a
towel, and applied the hair mask on for 15 minutes then washed it. I did this
process three times already and definitely feel like it revitalized the roots of my
hair with the natural oils in the product protecting and reviving the strength of
my hair.

6
I truly believe that this product is beneficial after trying it out for a couple of
weeks and I highly recommend it.
Till next time..

Strut in style

Oh when it comes to street style shoots this will be a favorite of mine!
It started off with a couple of snaps by the beautiful stairs and as I walked away to hydrate this was actually taken! It wasn’t planned and yes it turned out to be my favorite!
 4 5
Strutting around in my beautiful shoes soaking up the sun in a vintage floral culottes and a simple grey top is all I needed. I know, I always try to make it sound so easy; it truly isn’t haha! The secret is and I love how I could subtly quote drake here “started from the bottom”. To me it’s almost ALWAYS the shoes I start with when choosing the ultimate outfit pairing.
 1
 2
And I think that’s why some of the times I make life so difficult.. not in this case though, as soon as I saw those shoes, the pants was just a must. Got it from a vintage store during my last trip to Italy and the floral print got me going crazy! Hence, the confidence I had walking around in the pair. Tied hair back for a simple look, merely to take nothing away from the outfit and voila!
 6
Who would’ve thought that I’d get to snow a week after this sunny day.. oh wait, right ME ❤❤

Winter habits

fullsizerender-3

It takes courage to walk around in bright colors, in colors that stand out. It is winter season and breaking the all around habit of going for the cozy formal winter clothes, it doesn’t always have to be dark! We think winter our mind automatically goes to dark and gloomy oversized clothing.

7

Breaking the rule as per the usual; with an option of adding a long coat for my viewers in the south, north, west, and east (because apparently it’s winter around the world except here), an off-shoulder courageous pink winter outfit along with my nude loubs and a brown bag.

Moral of the story: subtlety is safe, courage is always an eye opener and a way for you to be the talk of the night.. in a good way I hope! 💕

Turkey Season

img_4584

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..

img_4598

img_4583

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 🤗❤

Home away from home

A weekend away from home..

img_4449

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!

img_4354

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.

img_4346

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..

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

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!

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

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.

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

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

Fadeaway

IMG_2454

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!
IMG_2471
IMG_2472

 

IMG_2473

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!

Ubud

 

Ubud..  The magic that is best described as heaven on earth. We walk around the world and visit places, step foot onto our journey in exploring every little small place; then comes Ubud.

Meditating and relaxing in the hippie side of town . Walking around their beautiful roads and finding people wear the off shoulders, the shorts, the tanks and the flowy beach dresses. Continue reading

Sunshine

With inspirations to enhance your creativity, in a sky filled with stars you find your self shine the brightest.
Yellow.. What else then? On denim but there are always ways for you to be different, no unique! We walk for miles and miles yet when we look around; we find ourselves standing around the same spot.
IMG_7719
IMG_7745
The one difference is that with every step you stand a little bit taller.. That, is my definition of confidence. You could walk a million miles, go through a thousand sea, see the darkness and the light and still find yourself standing around the same spot but if we choose to take every step as a learning curve then all of a sudden your energy is lifted and a bit taller (wiser) you are.
