New Uniform | The Zara Romper

May 16, 2016
Living in Houston has made me rely way more on the weather app than before. OMG! Can this weather get more ugly and unpredictable than it is? YES, I know we need the rain and dah dah dah, but these gloomy days are making me crazy. With unpredictable weather arranging a perfect time for photo shoots are harder. I have no other choice by trusting Google and iPhone weather app to manage a perfect time to take pictures. For example, I knew we had to be done with pictures for this look before 1:00 PM, and thankfully it started to rain around 1:30 PM.
Yesterday was our errands day, so instead of dressing up this pretty Romper from Zara, I dressed it down with my favorite Puma sneakers and a motorcycle denim jacket (seen here). As soon as I saw this peplum romper, I wanted to save it for my trip to SF and style it with my Strapped heel sandals (seen here) or Chunky platform sandals (seen here), but I couldn’t resist not wearing it! Since I can remember, lack of patience in wearing new clothes being a big part of my DNA. I never forget my shoe shopping days. As soon as my mom would buy me a pair of shoes, I would exchange my old one with the new before leaving the store. I would wipe the bottoms off before entering the house that way I could wear them all day long until the bedtime. (That was the daily routine for the next seven days)

Zara jumpsuit 2016

I absolutely adore everything about this romper. The color combination is great for spring/summer, and I love how tiny the straps are. They automatically make the shoulders be the highlight of the look. The peplum part is very appealing and great for hiding any extra muffins. What makes this romper unique is having both short and skirt moment at the same minute. I exactly don’t know what they are called, but to me they are skirt shorts that take me back to when I was 8 years old. I had this little cute lime green outfit, white tank top with green skirt shorts, which I kept refusing to toss away after wearing and tearing them for many years. Uhhm, Yeah, at some point the shorts were real short and the flap over the shorts wouldn’t reach the button to close. ☺                                                                Now you know what will happen to this Romper.Welcome home uniform/Soldier!:)

That Vintage Jacket Though

May 6, 2016
Good Morning beauties! Finally the weekend has arrived. Our family members are in town from overseas, and it’s a perfect excuse to go on a little weekend getaway. I’m not exactly sure what city we are going to, but as far as I know the place we are staying at is next to Blanco River. I can’t wait to share my experience with you guys when I’m back! 🙂
I’m not going to bored you guys by saying how much or why I love Montrose area and all its vintage shops because you already know from the previous posts. One of my absolute favorite vintage shops is Pavement. Besides shopping there, you can also sell the clothes that you don’t like or wear anymore. What they do is, they set a price they will sell in their shop on your item and give you fifty percent of the price in cash or sixty percent in store credit. Every time I go there, I have an amazing experience. Their customer service is fantastic, and the employees are genuinely nice and helpful.
I love hunting for vintage Jackets, jewels, and bags. Couple of weeks ago, I found this amazing 80s vintage acid wash denim jacket, and couldn’t wait to catch a perfect day to share it with you. It has different patches and the original owner has done color paints all over it. There is something special about it which makes me feel good every time I put it on.  If you are into these types of jacket, but you never buy them because you have no idea how to style them, I hope reading this post inspires you to step out of your comfort zone. Wear whatever you desire, and however you like!

If anybody still loves the skintight dresses or pencil skirts, this jacket is for them. I decided to keep my look denim over denim. I paired the jacket with my burgundy cropped top and one of my old skinny boyfriend jeans. I chose to stay with similar shades of colors in the top, shoes, and handbag to have all the attention on the jacket to make it the statement piece of the look.

Off-the-Shoulder Top|Sweet & Sexy

May 3, 2016
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend, and you are starting the week with lots of positive energy. We ended up not going to Austin this weekend either. We just needed a relaxing Sunday because the thought of being on the road for six hours round trip wasn’t thrilling at all.
As much as I love having statement pieces in my wardrobe, there are times that I just feel to wear something simple with a twist of style. Honestly, unlike LA, Houston doesn’t offer a lot of occasions that I could wear my statement pieces. So, my advice to you is to never forget to stock up on basic items for those days that you just want to be simple. Trust me sometimes Simple is the best recipe for success. Also, try to highlight your best assets on your body. I believe we are all have something in our body that we love the most weather if it is our skin, different body parts, or Face, which

EVERYBODY should like their face; Yes, you are beautiful just the way you are. 🙂

If you are living somewhere like me where the summers are blazing hot, the last thing we want to feel is being constrained by our clothes. Thanks to the blowy off-the-shoulder tops that bring the perfect combination of sweet and sexy without showing too much skin. It might seem like they make you look bigger, but in fact they are completely flattering on almost every body types and hides any imperfection areas. Like denim, can be worn for more than one type of engagement, you can pair them with any type of shorts, denim pants, or pencil skirts. I will try to post the top in diverse outfits on my Instagram, so you could get different ideas. I found this top on Urbanoutfitters.com in an amazing price, but you can definitely find them at almost any store since they have been part of the trend for the past three years. 🙂

For this look, I paired the top with my absolute favorite high waist skinny jeans that I basically live in. I didn’t like to leave the look super soft with light colors, so I decided to complete the look by adding my chunky color-block heels and make it more like a 70s look. The minimalism of the look works wonders for any occasion and it’s simple to throw together. Whether I dress it up or down, this is always a reliable outfit that can constantly be reinvented.

Life in Kimono

April 29, 2016

Hello Friends and family! I hope you are having a happiest Friday! We still haven’t planned anything for this weekend, and by saying PLAN I mean we haven’t decided where to take pictures on Sunday. Since I came back from San Francisco, we’ve wanted to go to Austin for the shoot, but the weather has been playing with us for the past two weeks. Who knows we might make it happen this Sunday if my phone don’t lie because as of now, it says it will be mostly sunny. What are your plans for this weekend? anything exciting?

By now, you guys should have noticed how much I love to have a statement piece in my outfits. In this case, I went for a casual look, that could be used for any daily occasions.

Ingredients:

  • Plain black bodysuit
  • Distressed denim pants in any color; I preferred dark grey because of the black body suit.
  • Any kind of shoes, from tennis shoes (here) to flats, wedge sandals or booties. I chose to stay with my dark shades and wear my favorite chunky platform sandals.
  • Last but not least => any type of Kimono or kaftan. 🙂

I have to thank the beautiful city of angels and my dear friend who made me want to buy all the Kimonos on the planet that I can’t afford! I was cleaning my messy closet and making it ready for summer, when noticed this beautiful kimono which my fabulous friend passed on to me and couldn’t resist not sharing it with you guys. I can honestly say I have worn it more than zillion times for the past year. It is such a special piece that every time I put on, all the gold detailing, flowers, color combination, and patterns remind me of my Middle Eastern roots LOL.

Okay, let’s go back to why I chose to stay with dark shades and mostly black. My main focus on this look was making sure that the kimono is standing out ( Of course I wanted to look skinnier too ). Also, the kimono itself  has black color in it, so I tried to make the black parts blend in with the rest of my outfit and make the gold details, flowers, patterns, and all the cream, white, and red colors to shine out through the whole look. I went with all gold accessories to blend in with the kimono’s detail work, and stayed with black purse to make sure the focus is still on the statement piece.

One of the great things about kimonos is that you can wear them with almost anything and still look unique and stylish.

Examples=> midi skin tight dress, Pencil skirt, any denim pants or shorts, and over bathing suit.

Feels Like Summer

April 27, 2016

Hi Everyone! I have a feeling that summertime bliss is going to kick in to a high gear in Houston this year, and my wardrobe is so ready for this! 🙂

With this hot weather, there is nothing better than wearing something light. My outfit choices are really depend on my mood on that particular day. I think my wrapped top/cover from (Free People) reflects the relaxed energy. It is also an effortless, stylish comfort that is suitable for the beach, at a concert or a music festival, or on a hot summary day for brunch. I fell in love with this outfit and think that it’s a match made in co-ord heaven. I love the length of the top, especially when it twirls around whenever there is a breeze. The fit and cut of this khaki wrapped top and high waist Vintage denim shorts are incredibly comfortable and complementary. I didn’t go crazy to accessorize the look since the top already had beautiful details including the gathered neck and a beautiful braided wrapped belt, so I went with my vintage look white stone earrings and a big cuff. I wrapped up my look with my absolute favorite silver sandals. Since the look was very relaxed, I chose not to carry any purse.

Classy Saturdays

April 24, 2016

There is something special about the Montrose area in Houston,TX that somehow reminds me of Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. I know many people including my mom don’t like LA, but to me LA is home. I’m not going to lie; it wasn’t all perfect when I first moved to Houston. To me, it was just a big quiet city with no character. If you ever been or lived in the Hollywood or Silver Lake neighborhood, you would know what I mean by character. So, even finding a small part of that world here, it makes me a happier girl. I really like the Montrose area, and I think nowhere is as cool as Montrose in Houston! ( If you know any other places, please let me know since I’m still a newbie ). For a change of scenery, my beau and I try our best to go there at least once a week. We love the people there and we always find ourselves talking to different artists. I adore all the little cafes and vintage shops, and love meeting creative people who can teach you something great without teaching you, if it makes sense LOL.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny Saturday in Houston, especially after days of rain and thunderstorms. We had to take advantage of the beautiful weather to have an outdoor lunch. We went to a very cute English pub called Black Labrador and ended up taking the blog pictures there. For this beautiful day, I felt the need to wear something comfortable yet chic and sophisticated at the same time. That’s exactly the reason why the main item of the look was this pretty dress from Urban Outfitters. The very first thing that attracted me about this dress was the buttons on the A-line skirt. The triangle cutout is placed perfectly where it accentuates the slimmest part of the body, which makes you look skinnier than you are. I probably bought this dress for less than $25 and wore it a million times because it’s one of those effortless chic dresses that you can dress up or down. I set the dress with a pair of black-strapped heel sandals to make it look dressier, and added a fringe bag to make it appropriate for the daytime. For accessories, I wore my Mother’s vintage scarf and stone choker to give it a more 90s look since we are all into it for the past season or so.

What do guys think of the look? I would love to know what do you guys like to see more in the future posts. 🙂

Happy Wednesday beautiful people! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend!

You know those days where you dig through everything in your closet and think, “I have absolutely nothing to wear”? Well, those days happen to me often than you’d think, especially when I’m pressed for time. Thank goodness to leather pants. They never fail to elevate our style game in any occasion. I can say they are one of my hassle-free and stylish pieces that I wear a lot this time of the year.

I like the way these Zara boots merge with the pants, giving the illusion that they are attached to each other. I enjoy being able to mix high street with high-end pieces because it creates a more grounded look, don’t you think?To complete the outfit, I felt that I needed to look springier, so I went with my favorite dusty pink purse and scarf. I love how the white color stands against the black pants and grey clouds. Remember, you don’t need a special occasion to wear leather pants. I’d wear them everyday if I could, weather at work or out for brunch on the weekends with the important people in my life. Give me an edgy look that’s casual and contemporary, I’m in!

City Perfect

April 17, 2016
I still can’t believe how beautiful the weather was in San Francisco. I love wandering around the city because every corner feels picture perfect. Let me tell you something, people in SF never get bored. There is always something to do, hiking, surfing, watching sea lions for hours at the pier, visiting the Golden Gate and Bay bridge, museums and Alcatraz, shopping at the heart of the union square and I can go on and on. 🙂 I always suggest to my non-Californian friends to stay at least 5 days in the city to just explore the whole city, and the next upcoming trip take 3 days to adventure the beautiful cities around San Francisco. Every time I go back home, I try to sight see the different part of the city. This time, my family and I decided to visit the Lands End and part of the Golden Gate Park since it is spring and the weather was perfect that day. I mean clear beautiful blue sky and No Fog! 🙂
The weather and the relaxed vibe of the city inspired my casual outfit for the day. What makes a perfect relaxed outfit for me personally is the one that combines comfort and style together flawlessly, and that’s exactly what this ensemble does. I really like the color and texture combination of this outfit. The bright blue denim is complemented nicely by the brown tones of the shirt and shoes. The fringe pants are a great way of blending a fun playfulness with a chic refinement. To me, it’s important to mix and match fabrics when my outfit is a little more minimal and simplistic because I think it keeps a look more interesting. Even the high-waist jeans add another dimension, making it a bit more fashion forward. I chose a Silver bag to break the black and make the bag stand out more.
What do you guys think about the look?
Have a fabulous weekend
Until Then,

My Lips Drink Water, But My Heart Drinks Wine!

April 13, 2016

I like everything old and vintage that has history and culture in it. I could never call myself a wine person, but as I get older, I like having a sip and knowing the history behind the vintage grapes I’m drinking. 🙂 I would say Napa Valley is one of the must to go places when you are spending time in Northern California. I like to explore different vineyards every time I go to Sonoma or Napa Valley. This time, my family and I visited the enchanting Inglenook Winery, and I can honestly say that there is no winery quite like this. Beautiful tree wines, green hills, and an old gorgous castle, which had me in awe, surrounded us.

Nothing was more perfect than wearing this amazing long dress by Eshakti on that special day. Eshakti is an online women’s apparel company who gives you the opportunity to customize their garments by your own touch and style. So each client receives her own customized Eshakti piece. When I saw this beautiful red/orange 50’s style inspired dress, it felt as if it was made for me. It is corset fitted on the top and flares out from the waist down. I love how this dress sits on the body, and how comfortable and light weighted is for vacation. I can wear it everyday for any occasion, whether I’m lounging by the pool, at a vineyard, or walking on the beach. As always, versatility is key!

IMG_3387

IMG_3333

I customized the short sleeves to cap-sleeves to give it a more of a 50’s look, and chose to go with a lower V-neck. For a sexier look, I would recommend having the side slit higher. I absolutely adore this dress, and can’t wait to rock it on the beach or at spring/summer parties. 🙂 Since the dress was bright red, I decided to go with a pair of nude platform sandals and a green vintage look bag.

IMG_3355

after looking at this Eshakti dress and the Alice & Olivia dress, from the previous fashion post, some of you guys might notice how much I like the bird designs or prints on the apparels since they represent Freedom.

After all isn’t what we are looking for in life? 🙂

Until Then,
