A review on personal style, outfits and inspirational looks

Chaos to Harmony

It’s the time when you transform the unexpected chaos into something beautiful!

In this post I’m introducing a new theme on the blog that came up unexpectedly. As I like being behind the cam more than in front of it, every now & then I will be hosting guests for photo-shoot sessions, they will answer style questions boosting your inspiration.

My first guest is P, one of my closest friends. This girl has the most chaotic closet with tones of colors & textures that end up in perfect harmony, making great looks!

What makes or breaks a look: Every item we wear makes a difference starting from the bra! But I think that the hair plays an important role in making or breaking the look, after all “A happy hair day is a happy day!”

Summer or winter fashion? Definitely summer fashion & hot stuff! Winter fashion is just cool… not too cool though!

All bets on red

Put a bet on red, put a bet on love, put a bet on new chances & put a bet on yourself!

Put a bet on red because it will give glam and power to any look.

Put a bet on red because it will give you strength when you feel like everything is black & white.

Put a bet on yourself because you know more than anyone else what you’re worth.

Go bold or go home.

Forget about keeping things low profile while trying to kill the cold, this season fur variation will make you feel fabulous facing the storms.

So unleash your wildness from the forgotten part of your closet and wear your fur anytime & anywhere.

Dare to wear it big & colorful as seen on the catwalks. Dare to wear it in the day time with your favorite jeans to keep it hip!

Potter’s clay: My pick for autumn

Temperature might be dropping down but the Potter’s Clay pantone is here to warm things up!

The color of falling leaves will add refinement to your outfit with its earthy tone and hint of orange & ochre.

Whether layered with other neutrals, color blocked or worn from head to toe, this pantone color is one of my top picks for this season on all fabrics & it’s the perfect substitute for the classic brown.

P.S: I rarely wear brown; I basically hate it…unless it’s about makeup, than you have to wait for upcoming posts 😉

Bag trends to shop this winter

bags

Shopping for a bag might be the easiest thing to do, yet the trickiest. As you have to ask yourself some fundamental questions before heading to the stores.

Question 1: How much am i willing to pay?

Question 2: When will i wear it?

Question 3: What size should i go for?

Question 4: What style fits me more?

Question 5: What’s trending this season?

Hopefully this post will help with the 5th question, as the four others vary according to your personal needs. So here are my top 5 bag trends to shop this fall/winter!

FUR: I can say that this winter fur is the warmest trend to shop & nothing screams winter chic more than holding a fur bag.

SNAKESKIN PATCHWORK: Reptile skin bags are a must have addition for a chic winter wardrobe. Start looking for colored & combined textures for a bag that turn heads!

Python patchwork

FRINGES: The seventies wave is everywhere this season & so are fringes!Fringes

BOX BAGS: After the circular bags last season, this season box bags invaded the runways in all kind of material & sizes!

QUIRKY BAGS: From weird shapes, to modern typography & graphics, this fall don’t hesitate shopping for those bizarre statement bags!

Shiny fall trends

While everyone’s eyes is on Paris fashion week for SS16 let’s keep focused on this season, the season of the bling! Because this fall is all about big jewelry that turns eyes! It is not just about statement necklaces, but about big earrings, chunky bracelets,  beautiful hair clips & even a full pierced face like seen at Givenchy.

I have to admit that I’m very excited about the brooch comeback. This season dare to style your brooches as they can be used as an embellishment to your jackets, knits, scarfs & even hats adding a sophisticated flare to your warm fall looks. Without forgetting that this trend can be pocket friendly, as brooches can be found in so many shops & the best ones might even be found in your grandma’s drawer!

Inglot eyeshadow review

Applying eyeshadow is major when doing your makeup. I have learned this when i got Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow palettes as a gift. This system allows you to mix & match colors to make your own customized palette, you can also chose the number of colors you want.I fell in love with the matte colors as they were more difficult to find in other brands. Colors are long- lasting, easy to apply & have a smooth texture. 

Their AMC Pure Pigment eyeshadows are also worth trying as they come in incredible colors with very high pigmentation, better used wet. I discovered those at the InShape exhibition, where Inglot international make up artist Aleksandra Byra was doing a make-over for the visitors. 

Inglot Lebanon has only one branch in Hamra.

Oscars 2015 statement jewelry

We woke up this Monday a little bit more excited as the 87th Academy Awards happened while we where sleeping. Usually the Oscars red carpet gives birth to the most iconic dresses & stars appearance. This year celebrities picked safe choices except for Jennifer Lopez & Emma Stone who dazzled, both in Elie Saab gowns. While most of the looks where kept simple we couldn’t but notice the jewelry that made a big statement this year: unique necklaces, jaw-dropping earrings & multi million rings! I’m a big fan of statement pieces myself, so take a look at some of the best looks that where upgraded with outstanding gems.
