Everything is Black and White

bwThe weather is for sure getting grey and so, I am loving that the fall/winter collections are not all dark colours. Whilst White is still a neutral colour I some how feel it has that bit of something that adds an usual break from the normal dark fall wardrobes. I have put together some of our favourite white and black items in my wardrobe both old and new. Every season I like to add additions to my wardrobe and I am not a trend type person when I m shopping. I look at the fabrics, quality and for items I believe will be with me for a while so I can mix and match everything. I also like to mix up my brands and try to add my slightly more expensive pieces with my bargain finds.

From Left to Right: White, lace Jumper: Sandro, Black Lace skirt: Forever 21, Leggings: Trunk V, White Sequin Top: Topshop, Black faux leather skirt: ASOS, Faux Fur Jacket HM Paris Collection. 

Boots: Ankle Boots: ACNE, Over the Knee: HM Paris Collection

Can’t wait to show you how I style all of these items in the coming months.

What kind of things have you been buying for the coming season? I ll show you mine if you show me yours 😉

Ciao for now xx

 

Monday Mood #7 Princess

main-1.originalI am sure that you just like me, often dream of finding the perfect outfit that just makes you walk gracefully, feel ultra feminine and ultimately make you feel like a princess. For me, I have had that a few times when wearing Abaya as it makes you walk that little bit slower and walk a little bit taller. If you have ever visited Dubai you will know what I mean but, if not I can tell you the beautiful girls moving through the Malls look like something in Swan lake and I envy their femininity. Something you don’t know about me is that when I was growing up I was such a tom boy and I didn’t really discover a feminine style until I was about 18! I am sure as hell making up for it now 😉

I saw this picture on Who What Wear which is my digital mood board ….. I usually love everything they post. This picture of Jessica Alba just made me realise I need to try and mix some of my favourite long skirts for Fall and I just love that she looks so lady-like. I am even loving the lipstick. As I had this picture in my head and thought about being able to soon wear my dainty heels once I am back in Dubai, I was catching up with the shows from LFW when I also saw these fabulous Princess-esq dresses from Alice Temperley for SS 14.

00090h_426x639As I have always loved Alice Temperley’s designs as I think they can often have an Eastern feel through the fabrics or designs. I was not disappointed by the Catwalk show today and honestly Alice Temperley has inspired my holiday choice for next summer and the suitcase essentials that I will WANT and NEED…….A girl can dream!

What would give you that Princess feeling?

Metallics1

Hey all, Whilst were in the midst of Fashion Weeks and I think I can safely say summer is over here in Amsterdam I thought I would show you my last summer outfit. I was running to a lunch with a friend and thought I would try and go bare legged and of course I judged the weather wrong and was freezing.

Here is a new favourite skirt for fall, I love the shape and of course the Metallic skirt is perfect for winter to add some colour to my usual darker outfits. I am already imagining I will wear it with my new knee high boots that I got from the HM Paris collection. I actually rushed to buy them when they went on sale last week. I had been dreaming about them since I saw them on the catwalk in February. The funniest part, I actually put fashion before safety and rode my broken bike to HM to buy the boots and decided to fix my bike on the way home! As the weather is already changing and I am heading back to Dubai I hope I can show you some fall looks before the sunny weather will strike my wardrobe again.

What I Wore: Top HM (many seasons ago), Skirt: ASOS, Jewellery: MADE, By Sophie, Sophie’s closet, Bag: HM

Hope your having a great weekend!

Wang!

Alexander-Wang-Spring-2014-Handbags-2LFW has started and I have finally got round to finding all my favourite looks from NYFW which I will share with you over the weekend. First, some arm candy from my favourite show; Alexander Wang. I loved the entire collection I feel like I m constantly a stuck record as I just keep going on about it but, I just was and am infatuated.

The soft pastels reminded me of childhood summers and cotton candy and so since I am now at the age I have to look after my teeth I will happily swap cotton candy for Arm Candy in the form of this gorgeous Alexander Wang clutch. I think it will look perfect with a sherbet colour outfit or all white.

Happy Friday all and have an awesome evening xx

P.S I also loved all the branding and details at Alexander Wang show.

morningHey guys, Here we are middle of the week and luckily its another sunny day, since Sunday the weather has been raining and miserable. I woke up this morning ready to catch up with a back log of emails and some NYFW fashion shows and the sun was shining. So I put on my sunny outfit since I will be indoors most of the day I love to just be comfortable at home. I am getting ready to head to Milan and Dubai in a couple of weeks and so need to do some shopping for those trips and I for sure can’t wait to be back in Dubai and wear some of my last summer purchases.

I am also choosing my favourite trends from the SS 14 shows to show you too this week. Can’t wait for LFW ….. always a little bit of eccentricity and the London look makes me experiment with my wardrobe.

What I Wore: Top: Fillippa K, Shorts: Maje, Trainers: Nike, Necklace: Tiffany & Co, Bracelet: By Sophie Ipad case by OTT

What are you guys buying for Autumn?

Ciao For Now xx

Trending Tuesday #12 Kids at NYFW

tumblr_msssdrPd4u1rqmldyo1_500WAN_1819.450x675Hey loves, NYFW has been in full swing for the last couple of days now and whilst the designers are competing for the best critiques and street-style pictures are now as important as the models looks from the catwalks, it seems there is also a new trend in town …….. super dressed kids. Ok, I think we can all agree there is no way Aila Wang would not be on best dressed list but, a look that is directly from SS14 how cooler could she be? I also love how she is also sporting a Balenciaga bag ….. how supportive of her Uncle’s work!  Of course, as I already blogged about the other day at Victoria Beckham all eyes were on Sir David Beckham and little Harper even caught the eye of the fashion queen herself…. click here to find out who I m talking about!

I love nearly everything Mr. Wang creates although, I am still a little skeptical on his Balenciaga work however, I have no doubt that SS 14 in Paris will wow me. I am such a fan that the other day I was out for dinner with a girlfriend here in Amsterdam and she was discussing with me that she wanted to buy a new handbag and was thinking of going designer and I said “definitely Alexander Wang”. No hesitation in that recommendation”

Alexander Wang is right to put a Parental Advisory notice on his clothes, I need my parents to make sure my credit card doesn’t burn up when his SS 14 line goes on sale ….. I LOVED EVERYTHING!

What do you think of the little fashionista’s at NYFW …… I think they are adorable.
