Coloring Inside the Lines

Childhoods vary immensely. Different cultures, countries, parents, schools, but no matter where you grew up, at some point someone must’ve asked you to keep inside the lines. But where do our crayons and markers go? At what age do we stop coloring? The answer might be Never.

The trend of adult coloring books has been going on for some time now. Continue reading “Coloring Inside the Lines”

Temporary Promises

For better or worse, the well of ambition never dries up. The feeling when you see something that is destined to be yours is as beautiful as the feeling when you finally have it. We declare that this is the most beautiful dress, ring, shoes or bag that we will ever own but then time, new seasons and gifted designers make sure we break our promise so hastily that we genuinely forget we made one.

Back to Beginnings

Over two years ago, the very first post we shared on the blog was about accessories, our very own accessories handcrafted with love, a pinch of color and lots of illusion. Numerous collections have been created year after year ever since the start in 2006 and everything seems different yet the same. While trends and materials might change, the passion and exhibitions are a constant. Continue reading “Back to Beginnings”

We Heart Unique

If you have been following us for a while, you probably already know our unending love affairs with sneakers. We will choose them over any other footwear any time, any day. So you can imagine our excitement when our fellow bloggers and friends, Elsa of Elsa O L’Accessoire and Souzana of BubbleGumFashionFace kicked off their IHeartUnique collaboration with Superga. We had the chance to play shoe dress up and create our very own pair. Let us know what you think!

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.

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!

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.

Light Jeans

The light-washed jeans trend is picking up just as the skies are getting brighter. Pair them with a blazer and a statement scarf for a chic touch and add a cool clutch that pops up and screams Colorful Beirut. Lazy days always call for comfy happy clothes..

Colors of Love

“It’s your light bulb relationship. On. Off. L (Lebanon) is the one you break up with once, twice, three times. The one you say you’ll never go back to. The one with the irreconcilable differences…You’re not sure of the future, but you really want to stay. When people ask you why you’re still in it, you’re not really sure you have an answer. All you know is that when it’s good, it’s so damn great” 

This is Dyala Badran’s (It’s Deebatable blog) relationship with Lebanon. Spot-on. This is everyone-living-in-Lebanon kind of relationship. We’d love to hate it. We hate to Love it. But then we come across guys like DIHZAHYNERS, we light up a bit and say maybe we should try one last time.

They best describe themselves as a team of inspired, driven and passionate artists/designers, aimed at creating initiatives to make Beirut brighter and more beautiful, through color. You can see from the pictures below  that they have certainly succeeded in reshaping some neighborhoods in Beirut and hopefully uplifting the way people feel about their community. Love the initiative and really hope that this movement widely spreads over all of Lebanon and make us feel that there is still a chance for us to be colorfully happy with our first love.
