YOU ME BEIRUT

This is not yet another inspirational post about Beirut, there are a handful of those out there and we honestly think that loving the city you live in should not awaken pride or grant merit, it should simply be a duty.

loving the city you live in should not awaken pride or grant merit, it should simply be a duty.

Despite the everythings and nothings, it is home and parading its name around will always feel trendy. Pair anything with a midi black skirt and you will almost feel responsible for finding striking colored heels and that clutch that matches. Are you with me? Continue reading “YOU ME BEIRUT”

Milestone Weekend

When someone tells you they’ve experienced one of their most memorable weekends, you imagine them soaking up the sunshine in some exotic getaway. And most of the time, with some mild variations, that would be the case.

Last weekend I unknowingly walked into what turned out to be one of the most memorable weekends I’ve ever had. Aside from the rays sneaking into a room filled with seven other people I have never met, there was no sunshine involved. But impressively it did to my mind what traveling to somewhere new always does. It is perhaps because to some extent I completely disconnected (I did not take a single picture!) and traveled into a world where it is possible to build your own brand.

Bohemians, Perhaps

They say people have the tendency to beautify things they have never actually seen. We have the tendency to fall digitally in love with a bag only to be disenchanted the minute we are done unwrapping the delivery box. We have the tendency to love social media personas we have never met, only to shake their hands and start wondering. We haphazardly use terms like bohemian and gypsy without realizing they had a different meaning long before they started appearing on glossy magazine covers. Continue reading “Bohemians, Perhaps”

Revisiting

It had been a long while since I last spent more than two days in my precious Ehden. City life gets smoothly on the way and you just completely forget what it was like to spend a Wednesday morning climbing the natural reserve.

It had been a longer time since I was not able to do a legitimate ponytail and once you chop off the excess you realize why your mom insisted on letting it all go before school days returned. And wearing dungarees, well that has also been a while. Continue reading “Revisiting”

Your Own

In this day and age buying something is no longer the way of making it your own. It is only when you spice it up by giving it your personal touch that it actually happens. And no easier way to do it than by adding badges. The idea is to start off plain: a white or striped shirt and then collect things to decorate it from fruits to bats to anything you can find! Continue reading “Your Own”

Looking for Stardom

At often times we find ourselves disillusioned with what our closet has to offer, so we set off with a white top and start looking for layering partners. We contemplate the pieces we haven’t worn for a while and give them a second try. And sometimes outfits like these come up!

Is it a cape? No, but it could be. Does it give you special powers? Maybe. Continue reading “Looking for Stardom”

Shopping Ritual

Every girl has a shopping ritual, most of the time carried out naturally, almost unintentionally. It all starts at the mall parking and the firm belief that this level always has a spot miraculously waiting for you, even if it’s a weekend and Christmas is at the doors. Then, there’s an undeclared sequence of shop visits. Continue reading “Shopping Ritual”

Sleek and Shoes

Shoes send out a message and the beauty of its content is that it can be changed everyday depending on which pair you decide to wear. They are a less committed choice than a hair cut but equally important as they stand as the foundation of your image, literally. They take you places, literally. And we literally chase for that kill or limited edition. It’s just emotionally stimulating. Continue reading “Sleek and Shoes”

The Return

What goes around comes around and with their return, some items evoke a deep sense of nostalgia that can only be shaken off if we buy them again. The Backpack. If you are a 90s kid, you will probably struggle to remember when was it exactly that you stopped carrying all your stuff in the denim JanSport your mom got you for your birthday. When did the zizag hair parting go away and where is my mood ring? Continue reading “The Return”
