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.

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 🙂  

FIVE reasons why you should wear a BENSIMON!


 

I’m sure all of you know the brand BENSIMON, it was available in the Lebanese market long time ago, back when I was in school and I was so happy to see it again in ABC Dbayeh and Beirut Souks, it brought back so many memories…

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.

The Bensimon sneakers are so comfortable, you can wear them all day, jump around, and your feet will be thanking you for your choice.

They become your trusty pair for errands and travel and everything in between.

Bensimon‘s collection is getting wider and wider every season, with laces or without, with patterns or without, they have a lovely collection, for daddy, mummy, teenager and baby.

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?  

 

Meet The Blogger #13: Aline From Nouchaline


It’s been a while since I didn’t update my #MeetTheBlogger section, but there are a lot of arising new fashion bloggers, so I decide to hunt them again 😉

 

Today’s blogger, is not a new blogger, she has been blogging since 2009, she’s fresh, cute and she’s shoe freak… You all know here “NOUCHALINE”.

If you haven’t seen her blog, get to know her through the questions here under…

246947_10150613941525526_752600525_18790807_8146509_n

1- How long have you been blogging?

Since the end of 2009.

2- How many hours per day do you dedicate to the blog?

At the beginning I would spend a lot of time on the blog, sometimes more than 2 hours a day. But lately with work, uni, and extra-curriculars I’ve been spending less time 😛

3- Has it been worth it so far?

Yes! I didn’t really know what to expect from the blog, but it has allowed me to meet a lot of interesting people, and to take part in and attend amazing events.

4- How many page views does your blog get daily?

Well it depends; it goes up and down a lot with new posts. But on average around 300ish views a day.

5- How many blogs do you have or write for currently?

I currently own one blog, but I have some ideas for a new

project… hopefully it works out 😛

I also contribute to the http://fashionbeirut.com/ personal style where I write about shoes.

6- How many hours do you dedicate to them every day?

I don’t blog daily, although there was a time that I did, each blog post can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to work on.

7- Do you think one needs to post daily to be successful?

Nope. It’s better to post whenever you have a decent post instead of posting just random things daily just for the sake of posting daily.

8- Is there an ideal posting frequency?

I strive for around 3 posts a week, but I think it depends on the blog’s nature. Some of them should be updated daily, others should be updated just a couple of times a week.

9- What is the biggest blogging mistake you did?

Not planning my posts lately and updating the blog. I’ve been a bit negligent with posts this year, but I’m waiting for my summer vacation to catch up and fix things.

10- What is the biggest mistake you see in blog designs?

Too much add-ins, weird picture backgrounds, and the biggest mistake is when you can’t comment on a post!

11- Twitter is a distraction or a good promotional tool?

BOTH!

12- Do you think that any professional should have a blog?

I don’t think it’s mandatory; a person should blog because he/ she wants to and not because he/she has to.

13- If you could give an advice for a novice blogger, what would it be?

Plan your posts! I should listen to this myself 😛

14- What is the secret of your success, expressed in one word?

Keepin’ it real, that’s not one word… Shoes?

15- If you could write a post on any blog in the world, which one would you pick?

I’d love to write for Hello Giggles, Shoeperwoman, and IFB.

These are probably my favorite blogs out there, although the first is not necessarily about fashion.

Fashion Styling For Men – I


 

I have started recently to include more fashion news and updates for men, because I believe style is not only for women.

In today’s post, I’m gonna share with you an outfit I styled at ForeAndAft., the trendiest men’s shop in Mar Mkhayel.

 

I like simple and chic style for men, and have a preference for the color blue, so I mixed these items together:

ForeAndAft 008

 

ForeAndAft 010

I styled the diadora shoes with red and green in order not to keep the colors of the outfit monotonous.

These are the brands I used for this outfit:

Diadora Heritage shoes
40 WEFT cargo trousers
Fausto Colato buffalo belt
Alessandro Gherardi shirt
Plusultra Milano sweater
Stewart Leather jacket Testa di Moro

 

With the high temperature during the day, you can only wear the shirt, and at night you could add the sweater and the jacket if needed.

 

What do you think of the outfit?

Would you opt for this style? 

Introducing: ForeandAft.


I know that I have a lot of men fans, but they can’t always follow my blog, because it’s all about women stuff…

Today, I bring good news for all the men who follow Le Blog De Chanty, I will be having a new section dedicated for YOU… YES YOU!

I know that men don’t really enjoy shopping and styling as much as women do, so I’ll be introducing new shops for you with styles to give you inspiration. How cool is that? 🙂

The first shop that I will be introducing, opened recently in Mar Mkhael and is bringing the top Italian fashion to Lebanon.

Now Open

ForeandAft brings to Beirut an exclusive selection of niche Italian brands that will revolutionize your casual and formal attire.

ForeandAft menswear, the new kid on the Mar Mikhael district, selects brands that guarantee the best materials and manufacturing processes, set the trends in the fashion scene and offer the highest quality to price ratio.

“Driven by modernity and change, yet with an expertise in fashion that goes back two generations, we will transform your retail experience”.

Their stylist from Milan has chosen some of today’s most innovative and trendy menswear brands and developed a curated multi-brand collection to address all needs of a modern man of style.
