His Tuxedo Shirt|Her mini Skirt

May 18, 2016
We all heard about how sharing is caring in any situation, so nothing is better than having a good relationship that the male partner is generous enough to share his closet with us. Ladies, is your wardrobe getting boring? Don’t worry, hop to his closet and see what potential items he has, that would work for you. In my case, I love his button up shirts and jackets. Yes, I go shopping for him quite often, and every time I grab an item, I think of it as an investment for both of us Lol. I mean there is a sayings for it too, “ kill 2 birds with 1 stone”.

You know the interesting thing about fashion, well I should probably say Style, is when you put your favorite clothes on, you feel like yourself, the style is very you, and it basically energizes you and your entire day!

Tuxedo Shirt

For this look, I chose one of his tuxedo shirts over a regular white shirt because first, it’s a slim fit, which means less fabric to tuck in the skirt and make me look less boxy than the regular dress shirt. Second, I am absolutely obsessed with cufflinks. I’ll never forget the little jealousy fire burning inside of me every time I saw a man with cufflinks on. I would think to myself, why do they get the privilege of wearing cufflinks and not us, women. Seriously though, I’ve never seen a women tuxedo shirt anywhere, but if you have, please let me know because I’m so buying it the next minute. Third, the Collar is slimmer and the buttons are hidden, which make the look seem cleaner than it is.
As you know, I love mixing different fabrics together. For the bottom of this outfit, I decided to go with a different fabric mini skirt (seen before). I absolutely love everything about this skirt, and I can say it was one of my best investments. What makes it more special besides all the cotton detail works and zippers on the outside is the fabulous lining inside. You know I really Appreciate good quality clothes. It can be from flea market or the Chanel boutique. The mix of silk and viscous (Tree Fiber) makes the lining super light, soft, and comfortable vs. some other nylon linings.
Do you guys remember the post we talked about embracing and highlighting the best part of our body (previous post)?
In my case, this skirt is perfect for highlighting my mid thighs since I think they are the best part of my legs. The back is longer than the front, so the sides are the shortest lengthwise, which means hiding the thicker parts of the thighs and showing off the skinniest part.
I paired the look with a pair of gorgeous velvet lace up pumps from Top Shop. As soon as, I eyed these beauties on the sale rack, I came to realization that love at the first sight does exist. The velvet fabric makes the outfit looks cooler, the thick heels and the lace give the look more of a feminine and edgy vibes.

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.

Rain or Shine, We Shall Shine

March 11, 2016
Houston climate is known for being unpredictable; a sunny minute could turn into a bursting downpour the next moment. It can make shooting outdoors a bit more challenging.
Luckily, the beautiful spring and that summer heat is just around the corner, which means that this transitional weather is a perfect time to experiment with wearing just a T-shirt and layering it with different fabrics. I love oversized clothing especially blazers to enhance that comfortable laid-back vibe the warmer weather brings. It’s hard not to fall in love with comfortable distressed denim, which cost me less than $50. I believe the higher the waist line is, the longer and slimmer the legs will appear. I like playing around with loose layers, simple T-shirt with my amazing ForLoveandLemons bralette, which was a gift from a dear friend, for the days when I’m on the go. With the shirt being very simple and basic, I like that the texture and length of the oversized ivory blazer increases the sophistication of the outfit, making it suitable for any time of the day. To tie the look together, I thought it’s nicer to wear a black stylish set of heels to match the black stripes on the blazer and give my legs a little more length compared to wearing flats. You can definitely wear this outfit with white sneakers for a casual look. Last but not least, I accessorized my outfit with my favorite gold choker.
