On the Art of Simplicity

Simplicity is key, and this art of simplicity is something that some fashionistas ace, while other still need a couple of tweaks and turns to get. I have to admit that the art of being simple for me, can be credited directly to my laziness (mostly); then to my disdain[…]

Vintage Dress Code

It wasn’t warm, nor cold… It was more like, kind of springy but with a hint of cold; and I had a gala dinner at Phoenicia Beirut, and wasn’t in the mood for pulling any cocktail attire. Just a chic and last winter outfit!! I decided then, to pull an[…]

Trying New Winter Outfits

I was never a hat person. And even though my best friend (Jad) is crazy about hats, nothing of this influence was passed to me, until recently. I was never a gloves and winter scarves person as well. I am also not a winter person to start with, so I[…]

Saying goodbye to summer is to me, the hardest goodbye of the year. I love summer. For me, summer is like pizza: when it is good, it’s really good; and when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good. Summer outfits are by far my favorites: the fabrics, the colors, the prints,[…]

Street Fashion and Style

The thing is, I often find the greatest fashion catches on the street. Not even while shopping. An item catches my attention in the most random boutique in a very non-shopping district, and I go in and buy it. Another perfect alternative for me, is actually high street fashion retailers.[…]
