Going Round & Round!


For my birthday, mummy wanted to gift me something nice, and deep from her heart. She surprised me by sewing me these adorable shorts ❤

Mum knows my love for colors, and to give me the fashionista look, she chose a winter fabric but with colorful circle prints.

 

I paired it with a black top and black heels and voila!

 

Love you mummy ❤

And Thank you Miro for being behind the cam :*

Alice Eddé Autumn‐Winter 2014‐2015 Collection


I was invited to the launch of the newest collection by Alice Eddé, in Green & Glam, Achrafieh, Zahret El Ehsan.

Once again, the Alice Eddé collection garners its inspiration from the spectrum of  colors blooming in Alice’ own garden.
Rich,  deep and exotic,  the mauveemerald and  heather jewel  tones  of Winter’s
cyclamens,  violets,  primroses  and  evergreens  are  celebrated,  and  contrasted
with  classic  blacks.  This  allows  the  punctuations  of  color  to  really  pop,  and
brighten any outfit this season.

 

The collection comprises a full range of sizes, from tote messenger bags and lux 
backpacks  to  clutches  and  smaller  leather  goods, including  laptop  sleeves  and
phone covers.
Handcrafted by  traditional artisans in Byblos, Lebanon  from  the highest quality
nubucks,  leathers,  lambskins and  fabrics,  these  elegant  yet  fashion‐forward
statement  pieces  are  designed  in  the  distinctive  Alice  Eddé ‘envelope’  style,
which can easily take you from midday to soirée.

 

I loved the collection, especially how the bright colors were introduced (pink and yellow), and I appreciated the small-sized bags, that you can carry with you everywhere.

My favorite bag from the collection is this one, mixing golden and black.

Did you get the chance to discover the latest collection by Alice Eddé? Which item is your favorite?

Why every woman should have a small wallet?


 

I’m not sure if you were suffering lately from the same thing, but when ever i’m carrying a cross bag or a clutch, my wallet can’t fit :S

I keep on squeezing it, removing papers from it, trying several options and it never fits 😦

So I went searching for a small wallet and I found mine at Aizarani in Jdeideh.

Here are my thoughts about why you should own one!

 

1- It can fit in ANY BAG

No matter how small the bag, the small wallet will fit easily and you won’t worry about forgetting any of your valuables at home.

You can also add it in your big, every day bags, and don’t worry about loosing it between all your stuff, you can grab it easily!

 

2- Wisely designed

 

Even if it’s too small, but it’s designed very wisely. You can add all the bank cards that you want to use, your ID, your rewards cards…

You can put your cash money in the inside pocket, and you can put the receipts that you get when paying with your card in the pocket from the left side.

I still didn’t decide how to use the back side of it. What do you think I should put there?

 

3- Payments will become easier!

Yes, believe me!

Your wallet is already organized, you just take it out of your bag, pick the card or take out the cash and pay.

No more searching for your huge wallet, opening it, searching in it for cash between the zillion papers you gathered from ages ago, or wait where is my card moments?!

 

4- Available in different colors

Plus it comes in multiple colors: red, beige, brown… and at a very affordable price!

I got the red one, it adds life to my bag 🙂

 

Do you have a small wallet? Do you advise on owning one?

Share your experiences with me 🙂

Question 1: We know that you have a deep love for fashion, can you tell us more how it started and how you decided to have a fashion blog?

Hello 😀

We are twins that’s right, but each one had love for something: Anna always loved writing and the online community. And Maria was always good in drawing, sketching and designing. We noticed that year by year, we become a bit far from each other: we have different works, each one her own group… so we decided to create something that will bound us again: our choice was evident. We love fashion, we love photography and travel. We started our fashion blog 😀

We began the photo shoots and posts were coming up. We got amazing feedbacks that encouraged us more.  At the beginning, we wanted to share our personal style and inspirations. Post after post, we wanted to show that it is possible to stay fashionable while being on a small budget and also show that it is ok to wear your clothes over and over again – you just need to be creative and combine the right items and accessories.

Question 2: What is your favorite summer trend?

For this summer we choose crop tops and denim. We just adore those items:D

We are also in love with floral patterns and mixing prints procedure. We like the white and black neutrals and we are having fun with logo shirts 😉

 

Question 3: From where do you get your inspiration?

We draw inspiration from anything and everything around us: it can be people on the streets, movies, nature, art exhibitions, bloggers, TV shows and music…

 

Question 4: What is the one thing that you can’t leave the house without?

Anna: make up item: mascara

Other item: pen and a small notebook.

Maria: make up item: lipstick

Other item: necklace and a bar of chocolate 😛

Question 5: What are the colors that you feel more comfortable with?

Anna: I love nude light colors like pink and blue which are very trendy this year. Pastel tones. They show feminism and lot of simplicity, elegance and a chic spirit! I Love also the Leopard texture, it is really fun to play with such patterns and mix it with others.

Maria: on top of my list comes the WHITE color. I love the pastel colors as well.

FIVE reasons why you should wear a BENSIMON!

More than a style, Bensimon became through the years a Lifestyle. Bensimon Collection wants to enhance the personality of everyone in offering the possibility to express himself through endless colorful combinations and where the black has no place.

The Bensimon shoe became a classic, with celebrities and VIPs including Brigitte Bardot, Sophie Marceau, Jane Birkin and Naomi Watts all contributing to the legend.

Summer is here with Paul Fredrick!


Paul Fredrick_logo

Paul Fredrick was founded 25 years ago. Originally specializing in dress shirts, their collection has grown exponentially as has their number of satisfied long-term customers. They design, manufacture and directly distribute every item in their collection. No wholesalers. No store fronts. Just great style at everyday prices.

The Summer 2014 collection is characterized by light and comfortable seer sucker suits, unique patterned ties, and colorful dress dress shirts

Their summer collection features light pastel colors, but also bright bold colors made from lightweight material to keep you smart but not a dripping mess of sweat in summer.

You can see a lot of pink also, in their ties and suits collection, pink is something that is stereo-typically set to women’s fashion, but in the past few years we have seen pink slowing making its way through the men’s fashion industry, and men are really starting to embrace it.

This season’s fashion is balanced between bold and subdued, modern and retro.

Men’s suits are beginning to move away from the ultra-slim cuts of recent years. This summer sees suits fitting more loosely, with softer lines and a more relaxed appearance.

Their suits are made of lightweight fabrications, fresh color with some twists on classic details.

I like how they combined different colors and patterns, the contrast makes the combination young, dynamic and very summerish.

Are you ready to update your summer wardrobe?
