I felt the need to wish you all a happy Eid & and a wonderful holiday and to let you also know that I’ll be active again during this month which I’m super excited about. If you have any ideas of what I should blog about next let me know in the comments below *hearts*
I’m sure you’ve seen it everywhere -the perspex- clutches, sunnies, jewels and shoes. Designers have been going through an acrylic period. Fantastic plastics have been all over the catwalk since 2012 but the beat on the street have recently confirmed the trend. And I couldn’t not add some of the fabulous see-through plastics to my wardrobe. Perspex has been covering the heads, hands and the toes this summer, and you could just simply see through everyone.
Here are few of the ones I got my mitts on: Charlotte Olympia box clutch, Valentino Butterfly cuff, Charlotte Olympia perfume clutch.
I can’t believe a year has passed on my last sweetsday post.. and here comes again another half traditional half modernized outfit for the day.
What I wore: a bisht by Purpura fashion (Kuwaiti designer), top shop jumpsuit. Paired it with Christian Louboutin brown pumps.
Unlike the annual-usual over accessorizing during grangao nigh, I went for very little jewels this time, and there were two reasons for that. First, the bisht didn’t really give me much choice. And the second reason is that I was really excited to finally have an occasion and an outfit that fits my 20s inspired necklace that my dad has gotten for me the last time he visited Turkey. The excitement came after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s recent remake of the great Gatsby where the movie had wide ranges of stone and pearl stunners that have made me fall deeper in love with Ziegfeld collection. An addition to the necklace I added two serpenti rings and gold earrings.
As for the makeup, I almost always have the same exact foundation routine, which I have mentioned previously (here). Few highlights of my makeup on the 14th of Ramadan was maybelline one by one mascara, Tom Ford pure pink lipstick (which is the most worn lipstick I’ve ever owned and I’m very sad they have discontinued it) and finally glow getter fake tan.
An advice to glow getter fake tan users: apply it hours before you get ready you’re gonna get AMAZING results. I used to spray it minutes before I leave the house which was a huge mistake it’s gonna stink your cloths and won’t have enough time to sink into your skin. I could see a huge difference when I apply it hours before my date night.
I think we have made enough statements with the necklace. That’s where the statement earrings pop in to make a change. I have mentioned before my amazement of constant changeable taste, as I have never imagined myself falling in love with dripping jewels. However, The van der Woodsens through the last couple of years made some changes to how my brain views things. Eric Daman (the stylist of gossip girl) has indeed introduced me to a new era of art and beauty. Not only are they astonishing, they can transform your day-look to night with one head-turning swoop.
As always with statement jeweleries you don’t have to put so much effort into your clothes you can keep it simple & the ear jewel will work its magic for you. “They’ll boost your confidence,” says Vogue Accessories Editor Amalia Keramitsis. “They’re conversation starters that usually involve a compliment.”
An addition to my Woodsens-influenced obsession, is a recent love for flower crowns. Obviously, I’m a die hard flower lover. From peonies, cornflowers to roses & lilies. So when I have the chance to have them as part of my outfit I will certainly not veto.
Just because they are not meant to be worn every day doesn’t mean you need a formal occasion to put on your favorite pair. These are my favorites (starting from the first picture): all three pieces are by Chanel, Roberto Cavalli Ear cuff, Topshop stars ear cuff, Miu Miu, Impression boutique-not sure what brand got it as a lovely gift-, Mawi, Chanel, Oscar De La Renta, ). Flower crowns: Urban outfitters and Accessorize.
