Boots for Days

Winter feels fresh when wearing striking colors, even more so when it’s a footwear staple that carries the necessary pinch of needed hue. When shopping for these I was torn between two colors: deep blue and fiery burgundy, but then I opted for the boots that I thought I could match with more outfits. Continue reading “Boots for Days”

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?”

Taking a Break

It’s the season, one fashion week followed by another fashion week. The cities might change but more often than not the captions, poses and people remain all the same. As much as we love it, it can be a little bit too much sometimes. The unbearable truth: even nectar is poison if taken to excess. Instagram might be the culprit, fueled by people’s incessant need to fit in by wearing the latest “IT” anything. We all might fall into the trap occasionally. And it’s all right as long as we make a conscious effort to remember to take a break. Detox your wardrobe and your mind. Get comfy by wearing whatever makes you happy, be it a sweater and pants, or a long sequined dress.

The unbearable truth: even nectar is poison if taken to excess

Forget about Instagram, likes and the latest runway trend. You can be aware of where fashion is going, you just don’t have to always follow it. Continue reading “Taking a Break”

All Day Maxi

We usually tend to think of long dresses as a night-outfit option but there is nothing more attractive than an unexpected maxi dress during the day, even more so if it is filled with a striking print. Long gone are the days when what dictated your outfit was the place or time of outing, now it’s all in your mind. If you feel like it, just wear it! Continue reading “All Day Maxi”

Picnic Mood

There are few prints that clearly remind us of our childhood and gingham happens to be one of them. From picnic cloths to school uniforms, we’ve all seen it before but we never really thought that it will be back flooding Pinterest boards and magazine photoshoots. We are lovers of the black classic version but this red variation is just refreshing. Patched jeans anyone? We are certainly not over that trend either! Continue reading “Picnic Mood”

DETOX

Just like passion and love, creativity grows on its use. Lately and though it has been quiet here on the blog, we have been exercising our creativity avidly on both personal and professional projects, some of which we can’t wait to share on the blog. Between all the work and growing, we always crave that one-day detox where we can escape to a tranquil place and recharge. We do lots of nothings and that is sometimes all you need. Where’s your detox place? Continue reading “DETOX”

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”

Moved by Clothes

Most of the time we spend in our outwear clothes, we are moving. Yet how beautiful are the moments when we stand still and they still move? Summer gentle winds are a plus but no need for a breeze when some items can be striking enough to move us in total stillness.A colorful scarf wrapped around your bag or a top with unpredicted cuts are few of the many items we can add to make an outfit unique.
