Style | One Scarf Five Ways

Dress custom made by Zoharous
Scarf by Leslie Van

Hi Everyone!

Two years ago, I interviewed an amazing designer called Leslie Van who is based in Hong Kong and Paris. After the was published, Leslie sent me a gorgeous chiffon scarf that I have loved ever since. When I received it, I told her that I was going to do an outfit post and let her know about it and I have been planning it ever since.

Well, I finally did the shoot and featured a few of my designs and some other random pieces of clothing that I own. 

This was a fun shoot... I enjoyed styling the looks and I hope the photos are as tasteful as expected.

How To | Ironing a Dress Shirt

Hi Everyone!

I think I'm obsessed with POPSUGAR Fashion. It is a Youtube Channel that always has these amazing and helpful tips for Fashion, Beauty and Style.

Another obsession of mine is Ironing. I really like to iron shirts, dresses, skirts and I must say... anything 'ironable.'

Watching this video today was fun. I did not learn anything new but I know a few people who hate ironing and always end up with burnt up clothes. 

So, as usual, I hope this video is good enough.

PS. Ryan Gosling is in the video girls!

Monthly Favourites | July, 2014 and New Post Schedule

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a great month in July... Well, I did too. This past month, I have been thinking and I decided to start sharing my monthly favorites with you. So in these posts tagged #favorites, I will show you all the stuff I loved in the past month from food items to perfumes to apps to cosmetics and most importantly, clothes... :)

I didn't get real time photos of these items but from now on, I will get photos and upload them here in the posts.

Here it goes:

Favorite Pastry
~ Cupcakes

Favorite Fragrance
~ Escada Magnetism

This sweet scented perfume was a gift and has been a major confidence booster this past month. It has a very sophisticated, yet powerful scent and that's exactly what I love about it 
Favorite Makeup Item

Revlon Color Stay Mineral Mousse

I have never been big on makeup and I'd definitely say I'm a beginner but this was my first real purchase. I bought this online from Beauty Joint. I must say, I love this mousse. I use it as a foundation and then I put a powder over it. It's not full coverage but I've noticed that it does a good job at evening out my facial tone... which I'm all for :)

Favorite Clothing Item

High Waisted Tie Dye Trousers from Zoharous

These pair of pants are my all time favorite and I recommend a printed pair of trousers for every lady closet. At the moment, it on so you guys can take a look.

This fun pair of trousers by Zoharous is made out of a soft and easy-care fabric called Tie and Dye. The details include: zipper closure on front side, straight cut, side pockets and high waisted design.

This special fabric is made in Ghana, West Africa using traditional wax-print techniques. Due to the nature of the dying process, the color of the item you receive may vary slightly from the one pictured. We recommend washing this piece separately.

Favorite App
Etsy Mobile App 

Movie of the Month

This movie... I was totally lost for words on this one. The roles played by Joaquin Rafael Phonix and Scarlett Johannson really take this film to a different place. They re-explain 'love' and I love it! 

Song of the Month
The Moon Song

The Moon Song was also in the video. It is a duet by Karen O and Ezra Koenig I instantly had to search for it. Personally, it was worth the search as I like songs that sound for effortless and yet soothing... That was the vibe this song gave me. 
*(Click on the name The Moon Song to listen to it on Soundcloud.)

I hope you enjoy this and please let me know if you like these posts in the comment section below. 

Meanwhile, from now on, I thought I should just pick a day in the week to do posts so that things seem more consistent around here. As for news items, I can post them as they come. I picked Wednesdays and Saturdays... that way you can either read on the bus to work or snuggle up in bed while you read my posts.

I hope they make you laugh and think of amazing thoughts.

Opinion | Angelina's Got Competition as Kendall Jenner Wears Double-Slit Dress to the MuchMusic Video Awards

June is definitely the month to bare it all... A couple of days ago, Rihanna was nude in a dress. Today it's Kendall Jenner in the double slit Fausto Puglisi dress. 

Flashback: In 2012, Angelina Jolie's bare leg launched a thousand memes (and its own Twitter account). A little more than a year later, Gwyneth Paltrow introduced side-butt, and now, just a little more than a year after that, Rihanna had her partially nude photos taken Instagram for revealing some nipple. 

However, it looks like partial nudity is getting trendy. I love Kendall's dress too by the way.

I don't know how but she managed to make it chic, she kept things quite covered up on top, and even her hair and makeup was simple and pretty. Jenner showed off some nip for her spin on the Marc Jacobs runway, sure, but red carpets are much different than the catwalk, and she did it up right.

When she and sister Kylie took the stage to host the actual ceremony, they naturally opted for an outfit change (or two):

But while we're all for a lovely white peplum paired with a bold red lip (can you say chic?), we might have to declare the first 'fit the winner—at the very least, for raising the body-baring bar ever higher. Who'd like to take on the challenge? (And more importantly, where could they possibly put the next It Slit?)

Trends | Spring Fashion Trends - The Sleeveless Coat

What do you think about the Sleeveless Coat for Spring, 2014?

"The Sleeveless Coat Is a Spring Fashion Trend That Can Carry You Through Pretty Much ALL Seasons ..."
Fashion Market Assistant, Avery Matera 

This Spring, there will be many unexpected happenings - including people cutting off the sleeves of their favourite coats to create their favourite sleeveless coats. 

Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea.

Everyone must try this spring trend because not only does it show off those gorgeous arms but the perfect sleeveless coat is one worthy layer. You don't have to take it off when you walk inside because you feel totally the same. 

You feel the weather as it is - the wind whipping and sun beating down.  

One thing is for sure, no matter how many coats you have on because the weather is too cold or how few since the weather might be too out there, the sleeveless coat is a must try this spring.  

However, I found this video that was posted in the How To Dress series by The Guardian and I thought it is a must share.

How to Wear:
"Now turn your eye to layering. Since clothing during this time of year can be light and airy, mixing in a piece with a defined shape gives your outfit structure. I love the versatility of a sleeveless trench for this precise reason. With its slight menswear vibe it adds contrast to silky dresses and chunky sandals. Or you can pop it over a top and skirt for extra dimension and coverage..."
Senior Market Editor/Digital Correspondent 
Dana Avidan-Cohn


Do you have any sleeveless coats or jackets? You should definitely share a photo.  

For your concerns, opinions and contributions, please leave a comment here, on Facebook or Twitter and I'll be sure to get back to you.

Thanks and have a good one!


Opinions | Rihanna Nipple-Baring, G-String Showing Dress at the 2014 CFDA Awards–See the Pics!

Transparency has turned out to be a huge trend in 2014. Rihanna definitely proved it in her see-through ensemble. Personally, I love the dress. I think it would look gorgeous if the colour and fabric were more solid.
That hair tie, those shoes and the fur stole on her arms gave this look a Gatsby effect and I think that's pretty. 
Her makeup was fresh and intense all at the same time... it made her look effortless. However, kids watch the CFDA Awards and if people like Rihanna wear clothes that bare her nipples, it might not be a child friendly show. 

Overall, I really like this custom made dress by Adam Selman. Rihanna is said to have had a total of 216,000 Swarovski crystals on that night... Lucky her!

What do you think?!?
... I'm still stunned by the way

Trends | Denim Overalls Make a Come Back

Hello Everyone!
In July, 2013, the Denim overalls were apparently predicted to make a come back but I guess it never happened.
In March, 2014, there are rumors and the trendsetters say lots of ladies will be likely to have denim overalls in our closets before the end of the year.
Surprisingly, this tutorial was made last year to embrace the trend but since it never happened, we might as well 'recycle'  the video and reuse it in 2014.

I hope you guys enjoy this video!
