Happy 2nd day of March loves!

It was one of those March days when it is Summer in the Light, and Winter in the Shade. – Charles Dickens

Nothing is more satisfying than knowing the Leather season is almost here. Slowly but surely, the weather is cooling down, so it’s time to bring out that investment piece and play dress up with it. If you are living somewhere like Texas or SO-Cal, don’t put away your summer outfits just yet. You can still play around with your favorite summer dresses or skirts with just a little help of the leather jacket. Leather Jacket is a must in everyone’s wardrobe. It is a staple piece in my closet that I wear almost every day in this season. I love how it makes every outfit cooler with the edge to it, so I consider a good leather jacket as an investment piece in my closet. I like all sort of different styles of leather jackets, but to me, nothing would beat a classic or motorcycle black leather jacket. You know, you can never go wrong with them, and they never go out of style. I will share some of my favorite leather jackets at the bottom of this post.

$ALE! The Best of The season

June 22, 2016

Wednesday…

Uhmm, I guess we all deserve some online shopping therapy rather than working considering we made it to this point of the week. After All it is the $ale Season, Ladies. It means go make those credit cards payments and start from scratch because we all love paying the 28% interest (But, seriously, Don’t listen to me because most of the time watching your money sitting in the bank is more satisfying than having some art pieces on your feet :|).

BUT,

If you’ve been saving up for this time of the year, and you like to add some good investment to your closet, I will be on the same boat with you Sister. Before I show You what I’ve been craving to buy, I would like to share some tips of $ALE SHOPPING. Don’t forget these are all from my personal experiences through eight years of working in this field, and I’m not trying to claim any expertise.

First:

I know it is a great season to shop, but my personal advise to you would be go on that vacation if you have to choose between shopping and traveling because there always be something that we need to buy and never ends. Summer has been known for its amazing vacations and adventures. Plus, to me, nothing will beat the education that You would gain when you’re traveling to a new place. Honestly, absorbing different cultures and the feeling of sun touching your skin on different sides of the world is way more rewarding than walking with the $2000 purse, which was purchased on Sale, around the neighborhood.

You know what I mean!

Serious Girl-to-Girl Talk…

Please, please don’t go and spend 80 percent of your paycheck on a pair of shoes just because X’s husband bought her a Saint Laurent Bag as an anniversary gift, and you just have to have it. Trust me, Safe to say as a Fashion Design student, who reads and watches all fashion history and documentaries on regular basis, and working with all sorts of clients, people can distinguish between a person who buys clothes because she genuinely loves them versus who just buys them to keep up with “The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” although there is no money in her pockets after the big purchase. So, as I said before, Don’t shop for other people or even yourself, shop for your closet.

Second:

Before typing the store website on the tool bar, make sure you are paid all the bills that needed to be paid. Then, Set a certain budget due to your financial situation because if you don’t set it, you will end up filling up your shopping cart with all great items that would cost more than your yearly salary. It might sound funny, but I’ve seen people in this situation where they don’t have the money and they end up getting loan in order to buy the clothes. You know what I always compare this budget thing to? Have you guys ever heard of someone saying, “Never go grocery shopping Hungry”? Well, at least in my case, shopping without budget is very similar as when I go to the grocery store hungry; I grab all carbs and chocolate existed on the racks of the checkout line while I’m waiting in line to purchase my actual grocery.
As I’m walking towards the sales rack, I have a same feeling as if I am Five years old again walking to a toys store full of Barbies. YES, I wanted them all no matter how many Barbies or barbie’s house and furniture I owned. The obsession got to the point that when I was nine I made a pact with myself to marry a guy who owns a Barbie store when I grow up, after unboxing my original Pocahontas Barbie that I waited patiently for about 2 years to buy….
My first $ale stop is always the shoes. It is one of the categories that I can digest quickly to splurge a good amount of money on since I was a kid. After all “ Give a Girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Marilyn Monroe. Usually my budget would vary depending on the shoes style, but I would say it is around $500. I KNOW. I know that could be a lot of money for a pair of shoes on SALE, but some of these shoes that we consider as an investments were originally more than $1000. That is when I should emphasize again that please buy them for your wardrobe. Make Sure they go with different looks that you have in your closet.

Third:

If you are tight on money, but you are dying to have a great pair of nude heels, put them in your shopping cart but don’t buy them as soon as they go on sale because 25% off would not do much for you. Wait until it goes down to at least 50% OFF, then go ahead and purchase them. Well, if they’re gone, don’t go crazy and be angry at your life just because you couldn’t buy them. Remember, we live in a marketing world, and they will always be something cooler waiting for you.
From my experience working at two different luxury stores, the best time of shopping would be around 4th of July. Even though the sales start in May, usually the month of July is the last chance that people can put their hands on the items as Neiman Marcus calls “ The Last Call”. As it says briefly, it is the last call or final sale for who are bargain shoppers and enjoy going through all the racks for six hours straight without a lunch break. Well, It is a Shopping Marathon Month for god sakes.
My Second $ale stop would be The Handbag and accessories department. At this stage, if I don’t find any shoes that I need (rarely happens, uhhm just lied, never happens), I would set an average budget of $600 for handbags depending on the style. As far as accessories go, I like to not spend lots of money on them. For example, the maximum budget I have for a belt is around high $200 unless it’s an unique piece that goes with lots of garments in my closet.

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,

Nostalgic Memories

April 9, 2016

A 16 year old girl moved from Iran to San Francisco a decade ago wondering about what she should do with her life. It took me only eight years 🙂 to finally realize I must follow my heart and do what I’ve always loved. I must say, I am lucky enough to have an amazing partner who has encouraged me to do what I have passion for.

Note to Self: Late is better than Never, and everything you imagine is REAL.

Lets go back to where it all got started, Redwood Shores, CA. Shores will always be home where I’d spent most of my teenage years with my beautiful family. Every time I go back there to visit my family, I have to stroll around the neighborhood to refresh some good memories. From volunteering at my sister’s school, tutoring at the library, to having my first office job at a bank two blocks away from home. So, I could not resist sharing with you some of my favorite spots in the area.

Probably you guys already saw the look on Instagram few days ago. 🙂 Yes, I can never wait! As you know I love jump suits! To me they are the most comfortable, stylish, effortless garments that you can wear any time of the day or night for any occasion. For this look, I paired the jumpsuit with my favorite sandal pumps, that you already saw me wearing a zillion times, and a blush color clutch to give it more of a spring look. As it was getting darker, the weather got cooler, so I decided to give it a try and wear my black leather jacket over it. What do you guys think?

You can also wear this jumpsuit with flat shoes and wear an oversized knit top over it for cooler nights and still be stylish. (That’s what I wore later that night at a family dinner) 🙂

 

I hope you guys are having an amazing weekend!

Until then,

Xoxo

Jumpsuit & Suede Jacket

February 12, 2016

JUMPSUITS! I love JUMPSUITS.

They are easy to wear, stylish and you can dress them up or down. I do get lots of petite clients who are afraid of jumpsuits because they think they have to be slim and tall to wear them. Ladies try them on!! There is no such thing that they are only great for tall people, they actually can make you slimmer and taller. There are many brands out there who make great jumpsuits! I will post some links on the bottom of this post. Continue Reading…

GREY Is The New Black!

February 5, 2016

I believe there isn’t  a soul on the planet who doesn’t like white or black! So the result of this beautiful color marriage is the cool and poised color called Grey. Grey exudes class and is one of my favorite colors in any shade. You will probably see lots of grey in the blog as we go on! I feel like you can’t go wrong with grey because it goes with every color.

In this look, I mixed all different shades of grey together. Lets start from the jacket!! I have a special love for leather jackets, real or faux, as long as they have an unique look to them.  What I like about this faux jacket is the edgy look it has with the cute peplum around the waist, which defines the waist line and gives you a great curve. I chose to wear a black top with it since I wore grey necklaces.

I love stripes, but they are tricky because they can make you look bigger. Try to choose vertical stripes to make you look slimmer and taller. I found these linen stripped pants and shoes at Urban Outfitters, my favorite store. I went with different shades of grey to make the look more fun. I finished it up with the silver shoes and handbag.
