XOXO Gossip Girl

So I'm totally feeling like Blair Waldorf in this outfit! Glitter headband? Check. Legs? Check. Cute flats? Check, check check! Now only if I had my Chuck with me in this post. Sigh.

Moving on from my day dream, there's something about getting dressed up during the day time! There's so much more you can do with your outfit, Add in a lot of bright colors and switch from heels to cute flats. I, personally, prefer flats or kitten heels during the days on the weekends! Wedges work too. As much as I love dressing up for dates and a night out with my girls, I have to admit, I do love my flats as much as my heels.
When working with a short skirt during the day, it's best to wear flats or low heels so as to tone down the overall look. Super short skirt+ sky high heels only scream something else. Save them for the night or a hot date!

P.S: Loving this jacquard skirt plus open knit cardigan combo a little too much!

Saks Fifth Avenue F/W 13 Show

If you've been following me on Instagram, you already know about the Saks Fifth Avenue Fall/ Winter 2013 show I attended this Thursday. It was a fashionable night indeed with my fellow bloggers!
The inspiration behind the theme for this seasons show came from the SFA's FW13 "LOOK" advertising campaign. The new logo, with the iconic square "Saks" logo is the epicenter of the luxury department store's new campaign and gave  way to the creative design for the backdrop set-up and invitation layouts of the show. The backdrop kept guests entertained throughout the show, with moving lights which later translated into matching beats of the music.
The collection featured  head to toe prints, florals, bright colored separates, smart tuxedos for him and her, chic biker looks and of course, extremely extravagant evening looks.
with the availing of over 50 international designers and the insertion of several local and regional designers, the show surpassed expectations becoming the most sought after fashion event of the season.
The Saks Fifth Avenue Fall/ Winter 2013 collection is now available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bahrain City Center.

Phasing out of summer...well, Almost!

 Have I mentioned that I hate summer? As much as I love wearing fun colors and summery skirts, I cant stand the heat! Winter, on the other hand I love! I love my boots and trench coats more than my pumps and vests.
I've been waiting to wear this safari jacket and I couldn't wait any longer so I wore it to the mall the other day. It's twill, so it isn't too warm. So bonus points for that. I also love the box pockets and the gold detailing on it. Ladies, anything gold or rose gold on your outfit is always classy.I prefer gold details more than silver because well... I think I'm so over my "silver phase". But when it comes to real gold and silver, I prefer silver. Unless it's the Cartier "Love bracelet", then it's gold.. and silver.. and rose gold! Confused?Yes, I'm a woman.

As simple as that

Ok, I'll admit it.There are days when I'm so lazy to put thought into my outfit . Sometimes all I want to do is roam around in leggings and an over sized tee. But you wouldn't want to be caught like you just walked out of yoga class now, would you? So here's what I do. Stick to basics. Yep. For me, that's the combination of denim and black or denim and white.Whatever you go for, alwys remember: you must own a good pair of jeans and by that I mean- good quality, exceptionally good fit (tight in the right places) and a good denim wash.All my jeans are from mango. I love the super skinny "Alice" range!
I try and add a little bit of color with my accessories. Either I'll wear a bright colored shoe or my handbag will stand out.

Note how I haven't over-done the green by adding green shoes as well. Instead, I matched my golden glitter shoe to my necklace and cuff.

It's as simple as that!

DRAMA, Drama, Drama...

 The easiest way to sport a dramatic look? Red lips, slightly smoky eyes and accents of red. Now this isn't a typical day time look. I was just playing around with pieces in my wardrobe and came up with this look. As un-wearable as it may be during the day time, I think this makes a great night time outfit for those festive family dinners. Anyway, let me tell you more about this look. I'm, actually wearing a dress and a cardigan under the skirt! The golden bit under the crochet is a short mango brocade dress and I've worn a crochet cardi back ways and tucked it into my skirt!

Don't be afraid to wear on your cardi back ways. I've done it lots of times and it can be pulled off as a backless top! Try it out for yourself! Just make sure you tuck it in.
P.S : Not all cardigans will work. Only lightweight jersey, crochet or lace!

Summer Brights!

Working with colors during hot summer days is probably the easiest thing to do. You don't have to stick to two colors. You can even combine three in moderation to create a bold statement. Just make sure you know your color wheel and that's it. 

I've done it all- Blue and yellow, yellow and green, green and red, red and yellow, red and blue, blue and green, blue and pink and here i am yet again working with brights. This time it's green and pink. You don't always have to match your bag to your shoe. Note now I've matched the shoe to the scarf and the top to the bag.You can similarly play match with accessories like a belt or a statement necklace.It could even be your nail polish, like I've always said before.It's all about proportion here so don't be afraid to color block like crazy this summer.Remember to wear happy colors and wear what you love but don't go overboard with 5 colors, unless you're getting paid at your nephew's birthday party! Happy almost-end-of-summer you guys! Winter, I'm ready for you.

PS: I've worn scarves all summer long. Lightweight cotton and silk that is!
