Yellow Fellow

In a perfect world, we all would have a closet full of the latest trends in all plausible colors the fashion scene would allow. But then again, reality has its perks and looking for ways to style a single piece is sometimes half the fun! You might tend to shy away from bright colors because it might feel that they can only be worn once before it becomes too boring. Just have a look at these styles and see how easily yellow can become your fashion fellow!

Blocking It

The beauty of color blocking lies in its surprise effect. At first, it might seem odd to pair an orange skirt with an electric blue top but once you see it, everything makes perfect sense! You can also let the bold accessories and shoes do the talking!

Collaboration with Esposa Group

It’s the season! Bachelorettes, pre-wedding dinners, crammed hair-and-makeup appointments, not to mention the now famous destination weddings! No matter how many you attend, the first question your colleagues and friends always manage to ask is: How did the bride look? What about her dress? The trends come and go but one thing that is as important as it has always been is the bride’s dress. And the efforts to find the perfect one start almost a year ahead!

We are always excited by the countless possibilities of every day wear but let’s face it, a wedding day is one of the big days so when ESPOSA approached us to feature our favorite looks we were thrilled! We directly fell in love with the beautiful array of luxury designer dresses like Carolina Herrera, Rosa Clara, Lazaro, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, to name a few.

Even for those who are not fashion addicts, choosing a dress for that day will make you one! They say the bride directly knows when she finds the perfect dress. Well, we think that the wide range of beautiful gowns available at ESPOSA will make it a bit harder!

Last Night in Beirut: O Monot Luxury Hotel Rooftop

Let’s face it. We can’t really look at our “Summer in Beirut” albums and not see pictures of the city’s most renowned rooftops. It has become a summer staple and we are constantly looking for the town’s new heights and sights or enjoying the iconic ones. Yesterday, we were invited to O Monot Hotel Rooftop . Right in the heart of Beirut, this new luxury boutique hotel prides itself on being the first hotel in Lebanon to be part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) network. We were happy to be invited to enjoy a calm and relaxing night at the roof. Cheese and wine, chill music and lots of talks about upcoming projects for the blog…Can’t really ask for more!

Blast from the Past

Nostalgia kicks in and you can’t help but smile every time Mickey is printed on just about anything. This popular 90’s trend is not the only one that is making a huge come back but high-waist jeans and mid riff tops are a definite blast from the past. And it is all just Awesome.

Personalized Scent

We  are living in an era where personalization marketing efforts are found everywhere, from initials engraved on your bag, to golden chains screaming out your name. Yet something as personal as a scent is kept rather generic. And that is why we directly fell in love with IDEO Parfumeurs. While walking in Gemmayzeh street, we came across this beautiful fragrance boutique that gives you the opportunity to discover and create your ideal scent. You can tailor fragrances by taking a quick questionnaire and smelling different aromas. The packaging is just beautiful and scented candles and handmade soaps are also available and can help you personalize your home. Smell is the closest sense linked to memory and now you can make them literally unique!

The Thread Top

A while ago we were introduced to Milia M and we couldn’t help but love their iconic thread top. The approach to wearing it is simple and just like Milia herself puts it: Just wear one item that feels like home and make sure your total look is tuned with the activity of the moment. We love the flow of the maxi skirt and the elegance of the top, both beautifully combined to create a dreamy yet confident look.

One Year

No we are not twins. We got asked this question a lot this year ….though we do have undistinguishable souls and enjoy the same passion that just one year ago we decided to share on this blog. And just like any defining point in the calendar, you start to reflect on the whats and ifs and hows. We started counting our blessings and setting up resolutions for the year to come. Reminiscing on our first posts we realized that the best part of blogging, besides meeting new people, discovering artists and brands and everything that comes with it, is that we actually get to create something. Every week. We get to create something to inspire others to make something too. We just create to create. We create a lot to learn a bit about ourselves.

To the many or the few that are following and catching up with our blog: Thank You! Your feedback and constant support does make a difference and gives the Create to Create notion a whole lot of sense. And to the many who also wondered why it is called Sunset de Amor, simply put: we love the magic of Sunsets that are never short on beauty, no matter where you are watching them from, and Amor is what we hope every sunset of our lives would be made of.

Look Back

Tops with interesting backs and simple fronts have always been a favorite. There’s a subtle attractiveness in the back of our body that if shown strategically can be very striking. Look out for summer tops that make your exit more memorable than your entrance and you might actually find out that sometimes it’s good to look back!

The Agenda Beirut

Last month we attended two interesting workshops at The Agenda Beirut. When Tony Abou Ghazaly, founder of this boutique academy, first introduced us to the concept, we were thrilled with the idea!  It took us some time to choose among the variety of topics presented by experts in the field (Interior decoration, fashion, styling, luxury events planning, professional self-make up and many more). After giving it some thought, we enrolled in the Advance Image Consultancy workshop with the amazing Christiane Hajjar and The Luxury Fashion Events Planning with the sweetest Bouchra Boustany. It was a great month of interchanging ideas, sharing experiences, expanding our knowledge and most importantly meeting passionate people that share the same love. Thank you The Agenda Beirut!
