FAB SAMOA

We all have that one friend, the one you do not see very often, sometimes for years, but when you do, you just pick up right where you left off. It takes a split second after meeting them again to clearly remember why you love them. The connection is evident, and you wonder why they are not part of your everyday life.

At times, we get the same feeling when it comes to products. Continue reading “FAB SAMOA”

Everybody Loves Alex

Waking up to H&M’s latest collaboration with Alexander Wang definitely tops your favorite cup of coffee. At the very least, it will invigorate you and kick start your day! It was great to attend the preview of the American designer’s collaboration with H&M and get to see closely the athletic inspired collection that will definitely make you want to work out on the spot! It is cool, edgy and very well priced. The moment we’ve been all waiting for is finally here! The collection will officially hit stores tomorrow at 8 am in ABC Ashrafieh.

 

 

 

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!

Tanning 101

There is always that time of the year where your tan is still work in progress. If you are lucky, it shouldn’t take more than a couple of weeks, but this year June has been grumpy. Meanwhile, colorful dresses seem the easiest way to get the sought-after color. Striking prints with bits of neon will do the trick. Their brightness will contrast with your skin giving you a slight tan while patiently waiting for that sizzling sunlight!

Sunset with GS

GS stores have been around for quite some time (40 years to be precise this month!) And since we are in birthday mode (blog is turning 1 on the 25th), we wanted to celebrate in color, glorious Technicolor! When the GS marketing team invited us to their shop to take a look at the collection, we couldn’t resist these shorts. There’s such joy to this look. Just by looking at it, our serotonin kicked up a notch! Here’s to four decades of fashion, style and eye-catching sunsets.

Collaboration with Something Blue

There are two important choices a bride will have to make regarding her wedding: Whom to marry and What to wear. Choosing the groom should be easy if only you follow your heart…but the dress. Oh my! And here is where you thank your lucky starts for a place like Something Blue. We previously shared our thoughts regarding this beautiful bridal boutique in the heart of Beirut HERE.  But it was only a couple of weeks ago where we got to experience the real wedding frenzy. Cynthia Nakhle, owner of Something Blue, approached us and some fellow bloggers to play bride-to-be for a day. And we loved it! Guided by Cynthia’s advice, each one of us chose a gorgeous dress. It was definitely easier than expected.  She certainly made it fun, effortless and entertaining. It was also amazing to work with photographer Mokhtar Beyrouth and the spontaneity he welcomed while shooting at the beautiful boutique in Gemmayze.

Our advice: don’t just hit any store and wait for the dress to fall on your lap. Make sure you attend shops like Something Blue where you will feel at ease with the person attending you, where you will get the knowledgeable advice and most importantly, where you are bound to find a dress that will make your special day as memorable as it should be.
