Monday Office Look


The storm is gone, the sun is shining again and i’m back to wearing pants.

I missed my shirts and my gilets, took the time to iron them yesterday, and got today’s outfit all calculated in my mind!

I matched my classical black pants by Med available at GS Stores, with my grey shirt from LTB By Littlebig available at BigStar Shops, and my black gilet from Tally Weijl.

To add a chic touch, I had my striped hat on from Mango

But what upsets me is that after taking the time to iron the shirt, you wear it for like 5 minutes and it’s a kaput again 😦 Does it happen to you?

If you’re wondering why my hand is always in the way in my pictures lately, it’s because I’m taking my own photos. I find it a fun way, to improve my photography skills and to distract me from my fear of the cam!

Happy Monday everyone!

5 Things I learned From The Dressember Challenge!


For all those who were following my pictures on Instagram, saw the dresses I wore during the whole month of December.

For those who missed it, you can check my introductory post about the Dressember 2014 challenge here and the last dress I wore here.

And this is what I learned from this wonderful challenge:

1 – I love dresses, I find them so easy to wear. And since I was deciding which dress to wear the night before, I managed to sleep 5 minutes more in the morning 😛 and it helped me become a more organized person.

2 – Pantyhoses should be created in a way to make the lives of women much easier. It would be great if it can be indicated which is the front side, which is the backside (Only Marie France had a sign). Because sometimes when it goes wrong, it can make your life hell trying to figure out how to wear it the right way…And with all the technologies out there, can’t they make the sheer pantyhoses unbreakable?!?!

3 – I discovered new fans to my blog, and we actually exchanged opinions about my dresses and we agreed that brown doesn’t look so good on me. Black and Red are the colors that suit me best!

4 – By adding accessories, like cardigan, scarves, hats, and different pantyhoses each time, the dress looked completely different. ==> If you get creative with the items you have in your closet, you won’t need to buy a lot of new items each season. Keep your money for the sales period 😉

5 – People are willing to collaborate and especially when it’s for a good cause. I was so happy to meet the creative Sarah Bond and had the pleasure to wear her signature Electric Thoughts dress!

Here’s a quick roundup of all the dresses I wore

I hope you enjoyed my Dressember challenge this year!

Would you join me next year?

Dressember Day 30 In Collaboration With Sarah Bond


Today is the last day of my Dressember 2014 challenge, if you don’t know what it is, you can check my previous post here.

I kept the best dress for the last, as it’s a reveal of a collaboration with the creative Sarah Bond, you can see her latest work that she showcased in the Christmas trunk show that she did in White Sur White here.

I loved her collection and for today I chose a dress that spoke to me with its vibrant colors and fit cut.

In their store, they have French and Italian brands, suitable for every trendy, chic lady who likes comfort in her everyday outfits.
They have a lovely collection of bags
A wide collection of winter tops
Chic dresses

Shall I take the Dressember challenge this year?


If you’ve been following me since a while, you surely know that in 2012 I took the Dressember challenge and wore nothing but dresses during all month!

Dressember Day 1 – 2012

 

But you will ask me what’s the purpose of it?

Dressember uses fashion to advocate for women who’ve been exploited for their femininity. As women take on the creative challenge of wearing a dress for the 31 days of December, they are advocating for the inherent dignity of all women.

Dressember exists to inspire and empower a global community of like-minded women who are locking arms to face one of the greatest injustices of our time.

The heart of Dressember is dignity– that every woman has the right to live a vibrant and free life.

 

So what do you think, shall I take the challenge again this year?

 

I will be checking the votes by the end of the day to decide!

For more information about the Dressember challenge you can check the Facebook page, twitter account and Instagram.

Dastkari


I attended last Sunday an Indian exhibition ‘Dastkari’ in Beirut Souks, supported by the Indian Embassy in Lebanon.

Dastkari, was an exhibition of Indian Handicrafts, people came specifically from India to show case their work.

 

And I had the pleasure to see the work of NamahAsteria, an ethnically modern collection of semi-precious and silver jewelry pieces by Namita Bhatnagar. Combining the charm of traditional India with the style necessities of the modern woman.

Using the finest quality stones and material, NamahAsteria is the ideal match between classic and chic.

They have lovely scarves, saris and jewelry!
