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”

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”

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”

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.

Two Summers

Stories have it that somewhere between October and November, there’s a second summer in our scenic hometown, Ehden. They say the weather starts getting really cold so most people will pack their belongings and bid farewell to what was probably the best summer of their lives. Only the brave stay and after enduring the foggy mornings and freezing nights, they will be rewarded with sunshine, lots of it.

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. Continue reading “Temporary Promises”

And it was all yellow

Longing for next summer when we’ve only said goodbye to this one. It happens to all of us, missing the moment while we’re in it. Yet we are taking solace in knowing that Autumn tends to be shy and we can still enjoy the beach hair, loose bright dresses and colorful jewelry, even if only for a few more weeks.
