Is it in Lebanon?

Is it in Lebanon? That’s the question you get asked every time you share a picture of a green space or stunning scenery. Our skeptical selves are not to blame since day after day we are experiencing how our beautiful country ages, and unfortunately, not very gracefully. We are constantly witnessing how developers are threatening Beirut and other cities’ architectural heritage by replacing corners that hold so much history with modern skyscrapers. Unfortunately, we don’t feel there is much we can do but pay close attention to our surroundings and enjoy what now seems like an ephemeral place. Continue reading “Is it in Lebanon?”

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!

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”

Let’s Bow

A bow tie is to fashion what salt is to cooking, the ingredient that can make all the difference! It is by far the most versatile accessory you can have in your closet and no matter what shape or color you decide to wear, it will always pop up as the central piece of your outfit. We particularly love how the black leather skirt and denim shirt are tastefully harmonized by the magic of this black bow!

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!

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.
