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”

Shopping Ritual

Every girl has a shopping ritual, most of the time carried out naturally, almost unintentionally. It all starts at the mall parking and the firm belief that this level always has a spot miraculously waiting for you, even if it’s a weekend and Christmas is at the doors. Then, there’s an undeclared sequence of shop visits. Continue reading “Shopping Ritual”

The Return

What goes around comes around and with their return, some items evoke a deep sense of nostalgia that can only be shaken off if we buy them again. The Backpack. If you are a 90s kid, you will probably struggle to remember when was it exactly that you stopped carrying all your stuff in the denim JanSport your mom got you for your birthday. When did the zizag hair parting go away and where is my mood ring? Continue reading “The Return”

Nail Art Designs

A mood board matters, simply because it’s the place where all inspirational elements meet and potentially inspire designers to create interesting work. So we happen to love their rawness as much as the final outcome itself. The below nail art was inspired by the Style.com/Arabia – DDFC Fashion Prize finalists mood boards, in partnership with Woojoh.

DIY Pom-Pom Sandals

You’ve probably already seen how pom-poms are being attached to just anything from key chains to hats. You probably own some and love them. But we are especially fond of the miniature version of those fluffy woollen balls when they are being added to sandals. We’ve previously used them together with tassels on our line of bracelets and necklaces but this time we wanted to share how easy it can be to transform any shoes you already have into the colorful Spring item you are most probably going to be wearing this season.

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”

NEW FEEL

How does it feel? Pretty much like that new hair cut, expensive bag bought on discount, the first bite out of your ice cream and meeting up with your bed after a long day, all happening in that same day, a Friday probably.

Yes, we are happy! We retouched the blog, injected it with new life by simply changing some tiles and painting the walls, all while making friends on blog forums as we discuss why widgets don’t always work. Continue reading “NEW FEEL”

Reviving Clothes

The first badge we remember wearing was that of our school uniform, royal blue SJT initials resting on an impeccable white background, complemented by three stars.Fast forward a couple of decades and we are back to wearing badges but this time with more colors, a dozen of stars and a tribute to another place that has taught us a lot, Beirut.

The girl in the Bandana

Everyone has one, two or few pieces, carefully stacked in their closet, that have been worn decades ago and will probably be worn again. If you do, your fashion life has been well lived! When the virtuous circle grants us the opportunity to celebrate classic items like the traditional paisley-patterned bandana, we rejoice at the possibility of wearing a long lost item and probably correcting any fashion decision we might have done in the past using all the inspiration we have gathered since then.

It Can Always be New Year’s

It’s 2016 and so much has already changed. It’s not even mid-January and we grieved, celebrated and grieved again. The Man Who Sold The World left it at 69, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe making the Oscar feel so close while Messi picked up his fifth Ballon d’Or, untouchably changing history once more. On a smaller scale that does not include legends or gold but highly affects our day to day, Netflix was legally welcomed in our homes but with limited access that might ruin it for all.
