Its 05:00 am here in New Zealand and I can’t sleep any more, so I decided to complete this unfinished post. I never felt comfortable in wearing Leather Skirts but I always admire them on other people. They are very versatile and you can easily dress them up or down and still look stylish. I paired my Faux leather skirt to this multi prints top from Sheinside and left the rest of the look minimal. And the good thing about leather is if it happened and you went to have lunch/dinner with your friends and you spilled something on your skirt (like i always do :-) ), you can easily wipe it out and your problem is solved, amazing hah :)

What do you think of Leather skirts and how do you like to style them?

Have a fabulous day and thanks for reading my post.

Wearing dresses in summer is the best thing to beat these heat waves. I bought this dress almost a year ago from a small shop in Seoul, Korea. If you read my interview here, you will know that Korea is one of the places that women really take great care of themselves and they dress fashionably all the time. I love how Korean women always look put together and their flawless skin (very jealous angry) is always glowing. I noticed that a lot of people don’t speak English in the shops but they made huge efforts to help me buying the items I needed (Korea is the best place to buy Skin Care products) using body language and they were all smiling bigsmile. Maybe learning few words helped me to communicate (I only know how to say hello in Korean confused ann-yeong-haseyo). Now it’s almost a year since I visited Korea and I’m dying to go there again but they don’t give me this flight, maybe I should seriously consider learning the language so I can get the flight more often. Watch out Korean crew cool.

Going out on a sand storm day is defiantly not the perfect idea especially if you are putting on a white outfit, but if you are living in Dubai then expect that to happen more often and you have to be prepared.

Having a sand storm on this day gave me no other option to shoot this outfit better than our parking lot. Yes, I had to take these photos in our building’s parking lot and then I have to head back home and wait a bit until the weather started to get better and then I went out with my husband and some friends for dinner smile.

Floral shorts are a big hit this summer and to be honest I’m trying it for the first time. I love floral skirts, so I thought maybe I should try also the floral High Waisted shorts trend which I found it nice.

I must give the credit to the accessories and especially this necklace which I bought from a small shop in Bangkok. It has a little story which I like to tell you (it’s totally optional to read this story bigsmile)

This accessories’ shop is owned by Iranian guy and everything there is hand made by him. The first time I visited this shop I bought a big blue necklace and a small red/blue one and I wanted so much to buy this red necklace as well but I didn’t have enough money that time. So, I told the guy next time I’ll come back I’ll buy this necklace.

And although I was not sure when I will get this flight again surprised and if it would be possible to buy it, the guy was very nice and he kept it for me (it took me more than 4 months to come back to get it) and since that time I always visit this shop whenever I’m in Bangkok. Sometimes these small little things that people does in life makes a whole different.

 

Have a fabulous day and thanks for reading my post.

My First Interview

image

 

Hello guys, today I’m sharing with you my first interview ever as a fashion blogger with Mr. Mohammad Mondal from Wetrendstyle. Wetrendstyle is the first online fashion community for bloggers and designers based in UAE. It’s such a big support they are offering to the fashion bloggers here and with their help I started to be contacted by PR companies and planning some future projects. Thank you Wetrendstyle for all these amazing opportunities that you gave me and for you continuous support to the bloggers and designers, I think you made our job way easier. You can read the full interview here.

Now a quick look back at when I started my blog which is not that far from now. although it’s been a short time with blogging but I felt it fulfilled a lot of needs in my life. I used to get so bored in Dubai (in between my flights of course as I’m constantly on the go) because I’m not a big fan of a lot of activities that are happening here, and as an Introvert person I prefer to spend my time doing something valuable and doesn’t require meeting a lot of people. So, the internet, books and magazines were my best friends and I totally enjoy them. Now I feel I found a good way to express myself and voice my opinion about my love for fashion which is not necessary the favorite topic by a lot of my colleagues. So, blogging gave me this golden opportunity to talk with like minded people and exchange our feedback.

I really wants to thank all of you guys for taking some time out of your busy schedule to read my blog, for being loyal readers for such unknown blogger like me and for giving your feedback and opinion about my looks and how I’m progressing. I might be away from home and so tired after a long 14 hours flight but reading your comments made me feel that it’s all worthy.

Also, I will thank my family, friends and my husband who is the hero behind all these nice photography in my blog. Who has to put up with all my crazy ideas and continues unfinished projects. Thank you honey.

With my little experience as a fashion blogger I wanted to share some small tips for the new bloggers who are planning to start a blog, but I’ll save that for later on so I can write more for you guys but for now I’ll tell you my best advice about blogging. Don’t start a blog if you don’t have the passion about it coz believe me it will take plenty of your spare time (that you are constantly complaining that you don’t have). Still don’t believe me then read the following.

A small fact about blogging, do you know that sometimes it takes me over 4 hours to prepare a post?

If you would like to share your experience about blogging since you started please feel free to write it down.

Have a fabulous day and thanks for reading my post.

Love you all
Wafaa

 

 

Little Black Dress

Did you ever bought a nice top or shirt and you couldn’t find a good bottom/skirt to match? Then you kept this item inside your wardrobe for days, months and sometimes years. And eventually you forgot that you have it already. I’m sure many of you had this situation before.

Well, I’ve been to this situation before until one day this idea sparked my mind. Why I can’t convert one of my favorite dresses and use it as a skirt. I was desperately searching for a short full skirt with a light material to wear in the summer but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Then when I was searching inside my wardrobe I saw one of the oldest dresses that I still have (over 4 years old bigsmile) and I always wanted to make use of this LBD but I didn’t have any clue how to wear it rather than a dress. So I paired it to this check Shirt which I recently bought from Mango and added this belt over it.

Hope you liked how I styled this outfit and to make it even better, I’ll try to style this LBD in different looks in my future posts, just to prove to you that you should always think outside the box in every purchase you make and try to wear it in different ways.  It will give you many fashion solutions, also you will save a lot of money and your partner will be happy wink.

 

Have a good day and thanks for reading my post.

You should never be afraid of trying new trends, styles and taking fashion risks. I know that might sound cliché but the truth is you’ll never know until you try.

Sometimes we get too comfortable with what we are used to wear over years and we tend to be lazy to come up with different looks that might suits our body shape and our taste in fashion. That’s exactly what I’m trying to do since I started this fashion blog. I’m trying to get out of my comfortable style zone and dive inside my mind to see myself from a completely different angle, of course with the help of all the available sources like the internet, magazines and T.V.

Can you imagine yourself after 40 years from now checking all your photos when you were young and feeling like you were trapped in your solo look, wearing literally what is socially acceptable or blaming your family and friends for not encouraging you to try new styles. Can you imagine your feelings at this time when you can NEVER change the clock back!!!!

This is not an invitation to try every single new trend the fashion world offers you, but my point is to try something new every now and then coz you never know, you might be surprised with good results. These shorts that you thought will never suits you might be fabulous on you but you were so rigid and scared to try it on and preferred to rely on what always people expect from you.

I wanted to create a slick and bold look to be able to see myself far away from this sweet girl look. This monochrome outfit is so easy to achieve. Just choose clean cut for your outfit and stick to basic colors. The wet look is also easy to create. Blow dry your hair straight and then add generous amount of wax to your hair paying special attention to the front of your hair and your flyaways and viola! you got the wet look smile.

Now the most exciting part was wearing this lovely blazer that my husband brought to me from Singapore after giving him detailed information and pictures of the blazer. I almost give up the idea of purchasing this blazer after several unsuccessful trips to the malls in Dubai.

Hope you liked this post and remember you don’t need to observe fashion try to enjoy it too wink .

N.B I didn’t suddenly got pregnant; it’s just these High Waisted shorts that gave me a perfect pregnant lady look in her 20th week of pregnancy angry.

 

Have a good day and thanks for reading my post.

The Parisian Look

DSC_2048DSC_2014DSC_2020DSC_2022DSC_2037DSC_2030DSC_2021DSC_2025DSC_2072DSC_2027DSC_2039DSC_2067DSC_2064 DSC_2069DSC_2049DSC_2046DSC_2040DSC_203911DSC_2035 DSC_2047

Paris, the city of Romance. Finally I got to visit Paris in the summer (having my both hands free and not freezing and hiding in my heavy clothes as I usually do in winter bigsmile). I went with my colleagues to Sacre-Coeur Montmartre in France to enjoy a beautiful walk, a nice chat and a delicious dinner. I must say everything was amazing there except the weather. It was a bit challenging as by the time we went there it was massively raining but surprisingly when we has arrived the weather changed and it was cool but a bit windy. Anyways I can’t complain at all coz this city is more than just a dream place to me.

I chose to wear this skirt (without the wrinkels, I swear to god I pressed it before my flight cry) which I bought from Topshop through Nordstrom in LA (I told you before I bought many things from this shopevilgrin). Nordstrom is like a one place for all your shopping wish list. They have diverse collection of great brands and I love most of the pieces they put in display. And of course Topshop is one of my favorite’s shops especially when I travel as I rarely find the same designs here in Dubai.

I’m also wearing this lovely crystal point necklace from Black Tied; I found it very cool and matching to my outfit. You can find different colors of this necklace here.

Now one last thing I want to mention is that I bought this Top from Nordstrom under 10$ can you believe it mindblown.

I know this is off topic but I can’t hide how sad I am after hearing the shocking news yesterday about Robin Williams’s suicide. He is one of the best comedian actors and I love love love love his movies. What’s even making me sadder is how people are very cruel with their judgment about him and how they are under estimating the consequences of depression. You have no idea how a depressed person can act. So, if you have a perfect life and you never experience depression. It means you are lucky and you should thank god but please don’t judge those people who has it. Robin Williams may RIP sad.

Have a good day and thanks for reading my post.
