One of my all-time favourite colour combos is red, navy and black. Last week I was walking through H&M to get to Granville Street, and I saw this beautiful stripped skirt (shop here), so I picked it up immediately imagining how and when I would wear it. There was a matching white tee right next to it, but Vancouver weather is not T-shirt ready yet, and I didn’t want to wear white with it either 😉 so I looked a bit more and found this red puffer jacket couple of racks away 🙂 (get it here).
I decided to complete the look with black booties, the ones I’m wearing are from Forever 21 but you can find a similar one here, although, red heels would look amazing with it as well. I Wore my cozy cap from Topshop with my favorite cut-out top from Zara under the jacket. My sunglasses here are Celine (shop similar colour here), and my bag is Chanel 🙂
I hope you like this look and colour combo. Comment your thoughts 🙂
As my closet has reached its full capacity and I no longer have space for my coats and shoes, I thought it’s time to clean out and donate some stuff 🙂 But, the other day I was introduced to M Couture, an online boutique for buying and selling luxury clothing/accessories! To be honest I had visited most consignment stores here in Vancouver and I never really connected with or liked giving up my luxury items to them. One reason was that I had no control over the pricing 😦 So I thought why not give this online boutique a go 😀 To my surprise it was the easiest and fastest process ever.
I’m going to quickly walk you through it in case you are thinking about selling some of your things or maybe buy what I have uploaded for sale, haha 😉
Once you land on their homepage you click on the red “Sell” button.
You are then prompted to Sign up. I signed up with my Facebook because it’s just the fastest and easiest way 😉 After you’re signed up and confirmed your e-mail just click on the “Sell” button again, upload your product images and select the proper categories under each dropdown menu, set your desired price and you’re done! 😀 M Couture will review your product and once it’s approved, the live link of your product is e-mailed to you.
As for me I decided to sell my brand new Red Valentino maxi dress 🙂 I had only worn it once for photos and it has been sitting in my closet since. So if you had seen this on me from last spring and loved it, it’s now available here on M Couture for pretty much half the price!
I hope this post is helpful 🙂 definitely check out mcouture.com and let me know your thoughts.
Remember when I did my “Business Meets Streetstyle Chic” post? Well as promised I am sharing with you another suit style for spring 😉 I wore this look for my magazine shoot with Sheedvash for their March style issue 🙂
I’ve always been a big fan of suits and I found this loose chic and comfy suit from Zara. The jacket and the pants did not come together but I managed to match them perfectly while I was in store 😉 You can buy the pants here and the blazer here. They also come in different colours but I really like the all white look.
I matched the suit with a white cropped top that I had bought from TopShop few years ago. Unfortunately they don’t carry this anymore but you can find a similar and better one here ;). My bag is the white YSL Cowhide tassel clutch and my shoes are Sergio Rossi. Unfortunately none of these items are available now as they are from the previous collection but you can buy the bag in the smaller size here and the newest Sergio Rossi pumps here.
Oh and lets not forget the Chanel Sunglasses 😉 I’m sure you all know that these were the runways collection sunglasses from few seasons ago. If I ever find a seller who sells them I will post it here for you guys.
Hope you like this polished spring look. Let me know if you have any questions 😉
One thing about me is that I don’t really ever think about what I’m going wear beforehand 🙂 I always walk into my closet look around, pick one item (usually the most comfortable item) and then choose what goes with it.
This outfit was put together in 5minutes while I was waiting for my husband to shower so we can grab a bite to eat 😉
I’m wearing a simple white hoodie with a corset belt and knee high boots to match; (shop hoodie here, belt here & boots here). To give the whole look a bold touch, I through in my very old yellow leather jacket from Danier. Wish I could give you guys the direct shopping link to this jacket but I bought this Jacket 11 years ago 😀 (shop similar jacket here).
I hope you guys like this look. Would love to hear your comments, let me know what you think 😉
(1) White Sneakers
Everyone has to have a pair of white sneakers in their closet. There are so many ways you can wear white sneakers which I will go over each look with you guys later 😉 Just give you some ideas, you can mix a pair of white sneakers with a maxi dress for spring or just wear it with your favourite jeans and trench coat 😉
My pick for this spring is the Puma Basket Heart Patent White Sneakers (shop it here
(2) Lace Maxi Dress
I’m a big fan of maxi dresses in general but a lace maxi dress is something else 😉 This months favourite is the Mura Boutiques new Idyllic dress, I have this in blush and its to die for. But, if you like to go all white with white sneakers 😉 haha, then get the white one (Shop here
(3) Marble I-Phone Case
It’s a bit over done, the whole Marble look, but I still like it. For those of us who work at an office you definitely want an I-phone case that’s not too flashy, girly or eye popping. So the best option in my opinion that would still be flattering yet professional is the Marble Case (Shop here
). You can choose different colours of the Marble style too which is a bonus 😉
(4) Pearl Detail Jeans
No matter how many pair of jeans you buy every year, you still can go for more 😀 This month’s favourites are the Zara High Rise Pearl jeans (Shop here
). Pearls are becoming a trend this season although they’ve been used in designs a lot over the past two years. So just to keep with what most ladies are into now, I decided to give you the more unique option of wearing pearls on your jeans 😉
(5) Perfect Water Bottle
Last but not least to look great in whatever you choose to wear this season you gotta stay hydrated and I have the best water bottle option for you. This month’s favourite (well my favourite for every month of the year) water bottle is by CopperH2O (Shop here
). This pure copper water bottle will transform your drinking water into Alkaline water!!! I will let you guys do the research for all the benefits on their website here
I hope you guys like my picks for this Spring 😉 I will post some of my Spring outfit ideas for you guys next :*
People think to be cozy in your clothes is to be wearing sweatpants and UGG boots. False. Who says you can’t look good and feel good with what you wear. As we shift seasons and comes the cold, it’s easy to lose motivation, wear whatever, add a few pounds, you catch my drift… Sometimes, dressing warm doesn’t require layers and layers of garments. You can keep warm with a simple sweater, long and loose enough to act as a single piece and warm enough to keep you from shivering; even when you’re craving ice-cream.
I paired this pink H&M sweater with my pink Gucci purse to compliment the almost exact pink tones. Boots (Sergio Rossi), on the other hand, can be a little different so you don’t look like a bubble gum! 😀
I also like to pay attention to the hidden details that glue everything together. For example, these mirrored shades by Chanel go well with the silver work on the bag and the boots.
Let me know what you think of this outfit 😉
With the fall season officially here, and everyone getting busy with school and work, I decided to get a little more serious with my look this weekend ;). With the help of my amazing friend and makeup artist, Azadeh Eltejaei @beautybyazadeh, I managed to pull together the perfect look I was going for :D. I confess I don’t have a photogenic face, but if you had seen me in person, you would have fallen in love with the makeup look. I hope these photos express how talented Azadeh is :).
Since I love creating men’s style inspired looks for myself, I decided to share with you this polished look. I’m wearing my black suit which I bought from Le Chateau for my engagement shoot back in 2014. Instead of going all black and white, I mixed in my new beige Zara wool coat and my incredibly beautiful Sergio Rossi shoes (these were my wedding shoes 😉 ). My python pattern Micheal Kors bag was a good match to finish off the look; I think I bought this bag back in 2010… time does fly by fast. Azadeh decided to put my hair up in a messy ponytail so I can show off my sheer white shirt (also from Zara) and tie ;). Everything about the makeup was perfect. The bold lip colour and the eye shadows were all perfect for this outfit.
It’s easy to create this look for an interview or a meeting, but I’ve worn suits to black tie events and galas, not to mention my engagement and trust me all eye were always on me. Remember, don’t be embarrassed by standing out from the crowd. You can experiment with coloured suits too; I will show you how in a different post soon ;).
I hope you guys like the outfit and makeup. Many thanks to my beautiful friend Azadeh. Don’t forget to check out her page and fantastic work on Instagram @beautybyazadeh.
