What I Wore: Gold Baroque

IMG_1650 I decided I wanted to do more posts on my outfits so you will be seeing a lot of “What I Wore” posts followed by makeup worn as well. I hope you would enjoy the posts as much as I enjoy shooting them..

It was my friend’s wedding a couple of days ago, and of course it wouldn’t be a wedding without crucial last-minute fittings and touchups.. I decided to put on a one shoulder, off white dress. I’m always in for less is more but there are certain dresses that scream for MORE.. more jewellery and more sparkle.

Dress: Richard Nicoll
Cuff: Tom Binns
Serpenti Brecelets: Bvlgari
Necklace: Van Cleef and Arpels
Clutch: Charlotte Olympia
Shoes: Charlotte Olympia

Golden girl

1Before there were diamonds, before there was de la Renta, chocolate was my best friend. Today I had a crave for glow and I knew exactly how to fulfill it; My camera and little bites of ferrero rocher..

It’s not just my stomach that was doing the craving. It was my face too, it’s pretty simple no beauty sleep no beauty. But, there’s always a but and there’s always a replacement; little magic from YSL concealer (Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat) and Dior ultimate shimmering powder(Rose diamond)..

I had to leave ADR sunnies behind, it’s January not June. Nevertheless, it’s always lovely to look at.

4J’adore fragrances by Christan Dior, is not my first choice of a perfume, but I love the smell of it, because it reminded me of my mom’s beauty, when I was little and she’d be getting ready for work looking all glowy and glamorous, her final touches would always be little sprinkles of J’adore and my final step of getting ready is remembering the beauty of her..

new1My first choice of a perfume though would be Jasmin Rouge by Tom Ford, I will never get over the beauty of the scent -absolute stunner-.

It has been a while since I’ve looked back on what used to be my favorite teen brand (Juicy couture) I don’t even remember where I’ve placed the jeweleries that I once used to love. One thing however that has never left my sight is the cupcake necklace that was given to me from a dear friend in high school on one of the nicest birthdays I’ve had, I wear it all the time to restore my teen blaze.

Girls Night out

After spending the day with my dad, sister and brother at Greenwich I needed to see my girls, first we had a stop at Selfridges. And what’s a better meeting point than my favorite department store? did a little shopping & then headed for one of the best hot chocolates I’ve ever tasted at thistle hotel (Thanks to Sara & Jwaher who told me about it). Now to be honest with you it’s not the greatest place for a sit down but you can always pick up your to go cup.

The sun started fading as we continued our walk to the knightbridge, where we stopped for Arabic desserts & Coffee.

How I wore my make up:

So many people asked me about my daily makeup and outfits, so I decided to make a frequent blogpost about that. Before getting into makeup let’s talk about “The before”:

1- I start first by applying sunscreen “Remede”

2- Then apply “Beaute Initiale” by Chanel (I only apply this step when my face is dehydrated)

3- Wait a couple of minutes, then apply Tom Ford protective Primer

4- Last is Prep+Prime by MAC, helps your makeup stay longer

After protecting my skin I start applying my makeup.

1- First thing I apply is One Base concealer by “Cargo”

2- Then, Chanel “Mat Lumiere” foundation

3- fill my eye brows with “Rich brown 11” by Bobbi Brown

4- Start applying eyeshadow, this time I chose to use one of my favorite kits that I created by MAC it contains four colors “Kid” “Nylon” “Tempting” “Charcoal brown”

5- Apply eyeliner, I use “RapidBlack” penultimate eyeliner by MAC. Definitely the best eyeliner I’ve used, I’d never change it.

6- First I use eyelashes curler, then apply Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara.

7- Apply bronzing powder by MAC “Refined Golden”

8- And it ends with the application of lipstick, I used “Costa Chic” by MAC

What I wore:

Top: Massimo Dutti

Purse: Chanel ( I kinda stole my mom’s vintage Chanel) :p

Shoes: Valentino

Cat Eye Sunglasses: Dior

Necklace:  Bijoux Heart

Black Suede

I think all the people that have met me know that my favorite color is black whenever I’m shopping my eyes will always head to the blacks before anything else. Black is the elegance, and when you think elegant you immediately think Coco Chanel who initiated the “Classy & Fabulous” woman. You can tell that black was her favorite color and it was the one she always chose and yet she was and still is the greatest fashion icon.

“I have said that black has it all. it’s beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” Coco Chanel

I love this dress for two reasons because it’s black of course and because I wore it to one of the best days of my life my “19th birthday” that was spent with the people I LOVE most, and now every time I walk into my closet and see it a breeze of exultant passes me by. I love clothes that can make you relive beautiful days.

Another important piece is the moschino ladybird clutch that I got from my sister for my 14th birthday it was my first clutch ever, do you know the feeling of when you get your first bike and learn how to ride it, this was the same case I was excited and looking forward to learn how to be a lady. Out of all the insects and the bugs in the world that I hate, I’ve always loved the ladybird.
