Closing a Chapter...

                                                                    My top looks of the year...

The time has come again, to close the year with many memories and a roller coaster journey of what has been... 

As we step into and welcome the new year, I would like to thank all of you for visiting my page and helping me come this far. With 90 posts in the year 2012, and more than 100 looks and three theme changes on the blog, the journey has been beautiful chaos.

Here's wishing all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.

See you all in 2013,

Stuck in between seasons

Blouse:HM, Skirt:Mango, Shoes:Payless, Bag:Monsoon, Belts:Camaieu, Bangles:Mango, Ring:Aldo
                                                                                    Pin It

This week was bargain week for me. I got this gorgeous printed blouse from H&M at 1 BD and these shoes at payless for 6 BD. What a great bargain right???? I love the gorgeous watercolor print of the top and how you can pair it with any color shoe you like, which is why i paired it with these color blocked heels. 
And also note how i'm sporting double belts to go with my look. 

PS: Sorry I've been MIA for so long, I've been so busy getting prepared for Christmas. Forgive? :)

Until the next post,

Couch? Nah, I'm a jacket potato

Dress and Jacket: Mango, Shoes:Zara, Bag:Thrifted, Necklace:Monsoon
Pin It

So the weather has been acting really weird lately and its annoying me because I'm unable plan my outfit .So off late, I've been carrying a jacket with me, whether its hot or not.

A recent and a fall favorite  of mine is this chain detailed color block jacket from mango. At just 19 BHD, it's a winner. I love the fit and the rich red color. The chain detailing is a bonus and adds a certain level of sophistication to the look.

Oh and these are my current favorite fall shoes. Pointed toes are way hotter than round toe pumps for winter!

Rewind to November 2011, Bahrain Fashion Week

On me: Dress-Zara, Shoes-FCUK, Necklace-Aldo. On Models: All gowns: ASK Design

I never really got a chance to blog about my proudest moment. Bahrain Fashion Week 2011 was by far the best experience of my life. Ever since, my design and fashion career have only gotten better.
It all began when I was selected among many young designers from Bahrain and Saudi to showcase at the event. The next 2 weeks after my selection was crazy busy -Tailoring, dress fittings, interviews and lots of chit chat between designers. It was beautiful chaos.

After a night full of glamour, press, fun, partying and a few magazine articles, it was all over. But in my mind, the memory is still fresh. 

To look at more photographs of the event and fun behind the scene photographs, visit Francine Burlet's (an AMAZING photographer and the kindest person I came across at BFW) photo gallery HERE.

H-UGGS and Kisses

Pullover: Tape a l'oiel, Longline vest: HM, Leggings: Zara, Uggs: Sweetpoisoninc, Bag:Aldo, Accessories:Camaieu
Uggs, a lot of women hate them. Why? Beats me.They're the perfect balance of comfy and cute. After an entire week in heels, it feels great to wrap up my feet in these babies. They're so warm and I feel so much lighter in them somehow.

I paired it with this boys pullover I got at a kids store last month and I love that its slightly loose and fuss free. Always remember, when working with Uggs or slouchy boots, make sure you wear well -fitted bottoms to avoid looking like a plush toy.
I've been wearing too much maroon, haven't I ?

Oh, and here's a secret... Only awesome people can get away with uggs. And awesome people are those who wear Uggs. :)

Electric blue heels and grey sequins

                                                                                   Pin It

Its been a month ( I think) since I went for the official launch of Steve Madden in Bahrain and I never wore these gorgeous babies (shoes) since.
May I say that despite the insane height of the heel, these are surprisingly comfortable? 

Anyway, now that its winter here, I decided to pair these electric blue heels with my skater skirt worn over a sequinned dress. I love making use of clothes I've worn only once or twice, like the dress, which I wore only once, last New Years. Speaking of which.. Christmas is almost here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS. December is my favorite month of the year. Why? Because I love Christmas, winter and not to forget I have my birthday to look forward to :)
