What once was humble has become an “it” item. Following the path of torn out jeans and worn out tees (pieces destined for the bin before they were classified as cool), the basket bag has now stepped in. Before waking up to finding every straw bag sold out, it was a bag that we used to use for the beach and if you were traveling to places like Bali, it would be their equivalent of a plastic bag. We are honestly delighted by the transformation. Continue reading “The Basket Bag”
Remember your mom’s faded Levi’s or old Cimarron? Remember when wearing moccasins, in all their grandeur, was not a fashion statement but a norm because ballerinas were only being worn by ballerinas? Not to forget the embroidery on jackets and jeans because plain was not always a thing. We love revisiting decades and remembering that at some point fashion was completely innovative.

Follow the Rules
Following rules is useful but following them blindly can actually lead to disaster, sometimes the fashion kind. There are some basic principles that stylists and fashion experts out there use to create the perfect look but it doesn’t necessarily mean that everything always works, and for everybody. So we say look at the mirror, then at your closet and set some rules to yourself. Make sure they are practical, sustainable and never eternal. Change them once every little while, and rediscover new trends and different options! Continue reading “Follow the Rules”
The Skirt Alt
Culottes have a subtle way of saying I was going to wear a skirt but I can’t be bothered. They sit high up on the waist giving all those cropped tops we love a pairing chance while accentuating the waistline. Their roomy structure and cropped hemline show off just about the right amount of leg to parade those beloved flats or statement heels. Continue reading “The Skirt Alt”
Discovering who I AM
Discovering how your style evolves and having online proof is surely one of the many blogging perks. You get to see where you were and where you are going, your mood swings and shopping sprees. Continue reading “Discovering who I AM”
LBD: Little Black Dots
There is beauty in subtlety. Discovering strong patterns like Polka dots smoothly hidden in what might seem your typical little black dress is refreshing. An all-black look felt natural and even though we are ready to give up boots and slip into sandals, the weather keeps on whispering not yet…

Black or Grey
It is either black or grey. No matter how much we love colors, winter does that to our wardrobe. And we do love it, especially when the texture is what makes the items pop. Wearing the iconic Adidas Stan Smith’s while throwing in some dash of color makes us feel like we are taking the tennis courts to the streets!

One reason to Fall
Layering is one of the few reasons we have to happily welcome Fall. And since it seems hard to let go of summer shorts and their careless flair, we can gradually settle into the new season by adding a blazer jacket. Think Autumn hues for a striking contrast!
Shorts: French Connection
Belt: Marc Jacobs
Pumps: BCBG Generation
Life is a Joke
We are over a month away from November and we are already paying tribute to the moustache that appears during that month to raise awareness of men’s health issues. And what better way than by choosing our latest crush: ELEVENPARIS. This French brand is known for its photo printed t-shirts which have gain huge popularity due to their comedic value and the famous faces used. With its slogan “Life is a joke” you are bound to find humor in their hipster designs, minimalist spirit, and music references. Need another reason to smile? It is opening soon in Beirut!
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Bracelet: GAS Bijoux
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.
