Take notes ladies!
It has been a long time since I visited any of the big shopping malls in Bahrain. And today I was reminded once again why I haven’t done so all this time. You see, I happen to travel a lot and get informed on the latest fashion, products and/or prices. I always look for the best quality and price and I value customer service relationships a great deal. I talk with shops’ representatives all around the world and I have gained their trust and respect as they have gained mine. Continue reading “Why I don’t shop in Bahrain anymore”
Proenza Schouler unveiled their new collection of totes out of which the fringed version in aloe green and black really stands out.
My eyes see “waves” of contentment as the fringe trend will stick around for some more since its recent comeback.
Good for my Juicy Couture fringed suede boots I hadn’t worn for a long time.
And I think Rebecca Minkoff’s fringed suede backpack was an excellent choice.
From skirts to jackets and ponchos to scarves, I like every little trim… What about you?
Time flies! A couple of months ago I was basking in the sun of LA and Honolulu whereas for the christmas holidays I traveled eastbound to Seoul, S. Korea and its freezing temperatures. But I love every bit of it! Like our walk in a park at Songdo.
Happy New Year everyone! Let 2016 roll and bring you all that you desire!
In the mood for celebrating our friend’s birthday. I even sang “Happy birthday mr. President” for the birthday boy 🙂
And since I received tons of questions about my outfit, here it is: Dress by Juicy Couture. Showstopper heels by Taylor Says. Rose gold bracelet made by me and my fitness tracker (I will be writing about in another post): Misfit Shine.
As for the amazing Taylor Says heels for which I have written in the past, here’s some of my favorite pairs out of her new collection:
With their buy one, get one 50% off offer and free international shipping I dare you to just walk away!
I’m sure you won’t let this chance… walk by.
After spending two months in Greece I’m back with loads of news to share with you and a couple of surprises. But first things first. After all, September is the month of pulling yourself together, getting back to your routine, and planning for the months ahead. In my world, it’s the month of obsessions, it’s when I crave for changes and when I scan all fashion trends in order to make my winter wish-list.
Obsession #1 – Hair Color
All of you who follow me on Instagram (idolimages) you probably already know that I changed my hair a bit into a lovely rose gold color.
I would be willing to try silver too but I’m so obsessed with the rose-gold after I’ve seen it on myself that I guess this shade is here to stay. If you are after a funky change like myself, I suggest you follow Lihn Phan’s @bescene on Instagram for inspiration. If you’re afraid experimenting with the color of your hair I recommend you try Bleach London or Stargazer semi-permanent colors which only last for a few washes. And then who knows? You might fall in love with your new shade and run straight to your hairstylist to make it stay for as long as you wish.
Obsession #2 – Backpack
One of my surprises involves a trip far far away from my home base which I hope I will be v-logging for you. But since I started planning the trip I realized my wardrobe is missing a traveller’s most basic accessory: the backpack. So I searched..
Mmm.., “too preppy”… so I searched..
too many studs… and I searched..
GEE! I ain’t gonna spend this much on a backpack despite its beauty!!!
So I ended up being obsessed with Rebecca Minkoff ‘s Julian, available at Bloomingdales for $395 (or BHD 160). It gives the boho impression I was looking for and it’s not as pricey as others.
But I don’t know whether to buy the leather or the suede version, which takes us to:
Obsession #3 Suede
And by the way, THE TREND for autumn 2015. Apart from my suede booties I love suede pants and suede bags. Suede may be delicate but I love its texture and slouchiness. And here is my Proenza Schouler PS1 pride. Bought from matchesfashion.com who btw offer free shipping for a limited time!
Obsession #4 Clogs
Talking about suede, another trend coming from the 70’s is invading our wardrobe this season and it’s amazing in suede: Clogs! You can go with the Gucci horsebit-detailed ones in the picture available from Netaporter for $795 or check the much less expensive options from UGG. My UGGs were quite a deal at $49,99 ! Yes you read correct. Here are my suede perforated clogs for the season:
Obsession #5 Perfume
Chanel Coco Noir. Maybe the most expensive of all Chanel’s perfumes (35 ml at about $125) but let me tell you: it’s pure black magic.
Obsession #6S – I meant iPhone 6S
My tweet at Apple’s last year event was:
You know, my obsession with rose gold dates back in 2013… or even earlier. When iPhone 6s finally arrives in rose gold, how can I ignore it?
Obsession #7 Camel Coat
I know it’s kinda early and with the hot weather here my chances wearing a coat are rather low to zero. Maybe that’s why I haven’t bought one yet even if I have been lusting it for the last two years and believe it to be the ultimate winter wardrobe basic. I can still look for one though, right?
So, what are your obsessions for this season?
Where houses are abandoned, nature takes over and paints the town in summer’s golden hues. It’s time for reflection, time to love and feel loved, time to reunite with mother nature.
This is roughly the idea behind Maria Galati’s photoshoot who chose Zoe Manousaridou as her model to capture the sense of freedom one experiences when in interaction with nature. An actress, art director and manager of emerging music bands, Maria Galati wanted to simply express her idea through her lens and Zoe’s gypsy soul and country style channeled and delivered the message. Nature played her part too. Enjoy!
Art Director/Photographer/Creative Photo Idea: Maria Galati
