Celebrities in LBD

16 Dec
Many many celebrities embraced the LBD as part of their red carpet regime; they trust it… Before I take you to some of their looks, I would like to share a few tips.
  1. Buy a dress that flatters your body shape. It is the key to wear it time and again.
  2. Invest in the maximum quality you could afford. It is better to have one good pieces that a lot of bad quality. (My optimum rule)
  3. Wool, cashmere or tweed  are ideal for winter while cold wool, silk or cotton work better for summer and mid-seasons.
  4. The simple the better. Bear in mind that the look will be built with the accessories you add so if you want a real “multipurpose dress” avoid ruffles, flowers or very deep décolleté (unless you’re specifically looking for that!!)
  5. The length should be at the knee or just one or two centimeter above… trust me shorter won’t be anymore sexy! 
Enjoy 🙂

Colorful Scarves – Winter & Summer

22 Nov

English speakers call them scarves, Arabs say shawls, Indian refer to them as pashminas and French say foulard. The former names might have some effects on size, shape or material but the outcome is almost always the same.

 I promised you an intensive course in scarves, or whatever you choose to call them, and I’m keeping my promise.   

 The following collection is about trendiness, color, and sometimes freshness… These beautiful scarves can work for both winter and summer time as their material is soft… I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Winter Accessory – Faux Fur

19 Nov

Scarves are usually a good investment even if they were slightly expensive ones. That’s because they tend to be a carried on item from season to season & year after year. It’s like a never-fading trend- despite the color, texture or style. Personally, I own around 40 scarves that I collected over the years. Some of them go back to my undergraduate years! Please don’t ask when was that :$

However, this season a new addition to scarves was introduced.  Fur is rocking this Winter & we see it big in vests, jackets & scarves… I need to stress that it’s important to make sure that the ones we decide to buy are faux fur regardless how big or small the item is… No need to kill to get warm and fashionable… Let’s be sensible!

Checkout some of the faux fur scarves availble in stores…

Winter Accessory – Knitted Scarves

18 Nov

Almost all of us, at least once in our lives, have received a knitted item from our grandmas, moms, aunties… It’s usually a cute gift, very personal & with an effort behind it. In the past, knitted items were mainly hand-made & that sort of limited creativity & designs. Nowadays, knitting machines are producing beautiful products decorated with many details such as ruffles, extra crochet touches, color combinations…

Knitted scarves are easy to wear, warm, cozy and super comfortable. Lately, we have been seeing a large beautiful range of unique & modern scarves… It’s a simply a must have Winter accessory for both slightly warm & cold Winters.

The festive season is approaching; scarves could be a nice gift for your friends. With around 40 options below, I’m sure you will be able to find a couple that you will love 😉

Must Have Winter Accessory

17 Nov

Yayyyy, it’s finally time to update our wardrobes with the new season’s outfits! Change is good, refreshing, not to mention that it gives us a valid excuse to… hmmmm… shop! 😉

In the past, winter clothes were associated with dark colors; black, grey, navy blue and rarely burgundy.  I used to hate winter clothes for that but nowadays, designers are injecting more colors into their Winter collections and metallics are leading this season! 

Since it doesn’t really get that cold here, it’s sometime tricky to mix and match… Mastering layering is essential & helps you to stay away from the boring Winter looks. However, it can make accessorizing harder, hence I like to focus on the winter accessory; scarves.

Aside from the fact that they really help in keeping us warm, scarves add an elegant touch to any outfit. Bright scarves light up an outfit, silk ones are very classy for a formal look, knitted ones are cozy & designed cashmere ones can become THE outfit!  

I’m starting my posts on scarves with the animal print ones… Stay tuned for more 😉
