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!

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.

greenglam-10-141024065004365

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.

Get to know more about her here:

1- How did you move from being a banker, to an Etiquette consultant?

Actually I’m still very much hand on as a senior banker too, but being a perfectionist myself who likes to see things better led me to help out & share my Etiquette tips which are based on degrees obtained in the field in addition to experience in the work place with the public.


2- When did you find out that you have the passion for Etiquette and Fashion?

At a very early age & in fact I was supposed to be in the world of Diplomacy & not in the corporate world or banking in specific, but unfortunately the circumstances in the country of origin, Lebanon didn’t permit at the time of graduation from university.


3- What is your fashion style? Do you follow trends?

I do follow trends but definitely choose from it what suits my personality, life style, occasion etc… My style is classified as a classic elegant, yet that doesn’t mean that I don’t experiment & have fun in different styles & even be daring sometimes 🙂
4- What made you choose the topic for your guidebook ” travel etiquette”?

The same repeated annoying mistakes of passengers, whether at the airport, at the business lounges or on-board planes…

Posh and Chic Prints!


I got dressed in the morning without really thinking of my outfit ahead of time and I suddenly realized that I was mixing two different kind of prints unconsciously, which i rarely do!

I wore my new chic black with white dots skirt from Benetton, with a simple white top from Sinequanone and matched it with my black and silver pumps patterns from Nine West.

patterns 042

 

What I like about this skirt, is that it’s simple, chic and it has pockets!

The white top is simple and goes well with anything!

The black and silver patterns shoes are comfy for a day at the office, and are just what I need for this season.

And since it’s Pinktober, I started with my first pink nail polish. I used the Pink Mocha from Mollon Pro and added a little bit of pink sparkle on the ring finger, by using the Embrace from Orly.

 

Are you into patterns? Do you like Pockets?

I would love to share stories 🙂
