Topshop Skater Girl

Check out this two-toned metallic skater dress from Topshop! I think it would really cute with this pair of strappy cobalt blue sandals by Alexander Wang. High street statement buys are the best kind of buys!

Summer Calling!

Filles A Papa

Filles A Papa

 

Don’t you just love summer so much – you just want to wear it?  Summer motifs and prints make me really happy. These Filles A Papa denim jeans make me want to whip up a piña colada and dig my feet into the sand.

Here’s how I make mine: 

  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 2 ounces cream of coconut
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • 4 ounces unsweetened pineapple juice
  • Slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry

    Blend until smooth and garnish with the cherry because you’re awesome.

 

 

 

These Rockstuds Though!

I don’t think Valentino Rockstuds will ever stop doing it for me. Since their introduction on the fall 2010 runway, I’ve grown to love how chic and versatile this shoe is. Whether you wear them with boyfriend jeans or a tailored short dress, they can make a statement no other pair of shoes can make- and that statement is effortless. They’re classic but incredibly edgy. This green pair has me ogling my laptop screen and brainstorming the ten million ways I would wear them.

Balmain Blues.

433045_in_xlIf you know me at all, you know I’m obsessed with leather jackets. In the summer time I roll up the sleeves and in the winter I wear with gilets and scarves. This Balmain leather jacket in sky blue with gold hardware has kept me awake for some time now. It’s almost 3 AM.

 

The cross-over sandal: Yay or nay?

I personally can’t seem to wrap my head around the crossover slipper/sandal trend that’s become “all the rage” this Spring. I don’t find them to be very flattering on the feet at all! They’re a little scruffy if you don’t mind my saying. I don’t care if they’re “Céline”, they’re clearly a rip-off of the Birkenstock slipper and even they were fugly back in the 90′s. Fur or no fur, I don’t want them on my feet. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not judging, and I appreciate people’s fashion decisions for what they are.. But I’m giving this a trend a huge Nay. I don’t know why when a model like Andreea Diaconu is spotted wearing them, the trend suddenly becomes “cool” and “comfortably chic”. This is one retro trend that should have died back in the 90′s.

Aqua & Azure: Dreams of Summer

“I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl, From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl, I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl, But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl, It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child, It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.” -

Maggie Stiefvater, “Shiver”

Amman covers Pharrell’s “Happy”

 

A group of talented young people put together the Jordanian rendition of the “Happy” video by Pharrell Williams! I think it’s pretty awesome. The “happy” crazy that took the world by storm was the perfect way to ring in 2014.

Who said Jordanian’s couldn’t be happy? #ByeByeكشرة

 

Happily Strappy

406100_in_xl

I am absolutely obsessed with these Gianvito Rossi ankle strap pumps! The reason why strappy pumps don’t suit me is because I don’t have legs for days and I’m quite petite. I always feel that the strap around the ankle cuts off the leg and makes it appear shorter. But it doesn’t mean these heels aren’t fabulous. If you’re a 5’3 and taller, these are the heels for you! Pair them with a tight midi skirt and bring on the sexy.

 

Been MIA.

I’m so sorry I’ve been completely MIA for the past month, but I’ve been working on a secret project I can’t wait to tell you all about. In the meantime, I’m in Paris for fashion week and today’s skies are blue blue blue. I’m joining the brunch bunch at Derrière for a bite to eat this gorgeous Sunday morning. Looking forward to an incredibly busy and productive week!

Love from Paris,
