Best of fashion 2015

large (10)

2015 has come to an end, and it’s time to reveal my favorite fashion trends, buys, etc.. that came out in 2015.. not going for a long intro so let’s get to the point..

starting with the trends that came out in 2015,

Henna//

 

large (2)

Although henna is known in India and the Middle East centuries ago, but it became widely, globally known in 2015. plus it became a trend almost everyone is rocking, or trying to rock. It represents femininity and joy, celebration, everything good.

It’s like tattoo without the commitment.well, it only last for a week, if took care of it; 10 days.

something similar to henna, but won’t take time to apply, also comes in a metallic shades, it was highly used and trending in the summer..

Flash Tattoos// 

large (7)

Flash tattoos come in so many shapes and designs, it’s crazy how many designs are available, but my personal favorite are the henna design, more than the geometrical shapes, such as the arrows and bows (although i’m a sucker for bows and arrows) but i personally prefer flash tattoos in the henna design, you know with out the full henna commitment (Do I have commitment issues?! that’s why i hardly ever cut my hair). you know the last time i did it, lasted me 2 days only.

Why was it so popular in the summer?.. maybe because people show more skin the summer, so it would be interesting to add something here and there; plus metallic shades are phenomenal on tan skin, it’s just unbelievable.

This girl just knew how to use these flash tattoos right. work it GIRL!! 

 

and the last trend that popped out in 2015 is long tops..

d58dff8be5754e210301795b90032a8c

I am a sucker for long tops, the first time i actually saw it, was a Turkish series one of the female lead was known to be fashionable & spoiled, so one time in the winter episodes she wore a long cardigan, and you guys; that outfit spoke to my soul right away (it was winter 2014) thank god that type of tops spread quickly and i found it, soon in the summer long tops became something known and i honestly love it.

I don’t like every trend that come out, but honestly this one is everything!!

 

And now, i wanna talk about fashion pieces (not necessarily trends)..

Statement Necklaces//

Forever21

Statement necklaces have been my life this year.  I don’t know what it is, but I’m just attracted to them in some way, like they change your whole entire outfit. onetime i had to go to a quick mini girls party; i wanted a comfy last minute outfit; denim, a simple blouse with interesting pattern on the fabric, statement necklace, with cute flats, and VOILA! you got yourself a cute outfit.. they just save your life sometimes.

Love Culture

Stradivarius

The next fashion item i was lusting over (especially in the fall and winter)

Turtle Neck/ High Neck Tops// 

large (9)

When I was younger i HATED turtle neck tops, now i feel like i would love wearing them in every outfit. They’re just sophisticated, classy, fashionable, and they keep you warm also. turns out not only me who likes turtle necks this fall and winter, people have been wearing them a lot lately.

The next fashion item i’ve been loving so much this year..

Stone Jewelry// 

DSC_0405.JPG

As much as i love a good sophisticated and classy outfit, I adore something in life called bohemian jewelry, stone jewelry mostly represents the bohemian style, because they kind of feel earthy and “back to nature” kind of thing, which i absolutely LOVE!

so the next thing, also i’ve been loving for fall and winter,

Fur Vests// 

large

Fur, velvet, and diamonds; are the definition of GLAM !! I have been loving fur vests lately, i don’t know i just like them so much they seem to make an outfit winter-y and glamorous and sophisticated. adds a little oomph to the outfit.

Stradivarius

 

Now, my top fashion buys for 2015 are..

My Zara Khaki long top// 

dsc_2703-1024x681.jpg

2 things made me love this top, the color; and the fact that is long.

Michael Kors Jet Set Small Crossbody//

I’ve been eyeing this beauty for so long, when i went to Paris and saw it; i just couldn’t resist!!

Steve Madden Stefano Sandals// 

dsc_2822-1024x6811.jpg

these have been my favorite shoes EVER!! but everywhere i go i take off my shoes, i need somewhere to show them babies off !!

Indie + Harper Jewelry// 

dsc_2715-1024x681.jpg

I’ve had a hard time with the shipping and all, but i love them so much. but i’m not going to buy from them again, it’s just been too hard of an experience for me.

Adidas Originals Superstar Trainers//

dsc_0158-1024x681

These babies have been on my wishlist, and now they’re in my hands, dreams can come true ladies.

Tod’s Gommino Driving Shoes in Leather// 

dsc_2651-1024x6813.jpg

I bought these from the outlet when I was in France. The color of them is breathtaking to me!

Nine West Booties// 

dsc_0159-1024x681.jpg

these are the fierce babies of them all. I only wore them once unfortunately, i just can’t find a place to wear my shoes to </3

 

other than that, i have the statement necklaces, and fur vest (see above). I love everything that i buy, but these are the once that i feel like they worth showing, because i just love them and i’ve been eyeing them for so long.

That was it for the 2015′ s best of fashion, hope you guys liked it, thank you for making 2015 a good year for me & Being SHAHAD.

Have a happy and healthy year xx (happiness and healthiness are fashionable)

Love, Shahad..//

 

Empties vol.2 : Will I purchase these again?!

empties logo

Hello beauties!! welcome back !! It has been two weeks since I posted something, I haven’t posted anything last Friday because it was my sister’s bachelor party, and let me tell ya, I had the time of my life!! It was fun as HELL !! anyways, let’s move onto the empties, so welcome to the second part of my empties, my first one was in May, and now it’s December, so it’s been like 7 months (OMG!!) this time the products are more, there’s around 30 products, so i have categorized them in the photos so i won’t hibernate after taking them.

So, I’m gonna start with cleansers..

DSC_0171 (1024x681).jpg

(from left to right) 

Nivea Gentle Face Cleanser: This is a cream cleanser for dry skinned people, it’s actually really good for hydrating your skin if you have dry skin, so i would actually recommend it, if you’re cream cleanser type of person.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser: I finished this and another sample bottle, I actually got a lot of Kiehl’s samples when i was in Paris. So, I really like this cleanser, it does the job well, but I won’t purchase the full size of it, cause there’s a lot better drugstore cleansers on the market.

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Brightening Cleanser: This one I  liked the most, because it definitely made my face feel so fresh, plus it got some sparkles inside the bottle, so I really like this cleanser, and it’s the type that I’ll repurchase.

 

Okay, moving on to other skin care products,..

DSC_0174 (1024x681).jpg

Garnier Makeup Remover Milk: This one is also for dry skin, and as it says on the bottle, it got rose extract, although i bought 2 bottles of this back in the day, i feel like now i didn’t like it that much, there was definitely much better products on the market, i didn’t repurchase, and i don’t think i will in the future.

L’Oreal Hydra Total 5 Gel-cream: This one is my second bottle, and i recommended it to my sister, and she loved it. If I didn’t bought another moisturizer, i would’ve bought it for the third time 🙂

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale: obviously won’t purchase the full size, cause i’m too young for that, but this is such a great serum for the face, plus it smells heavenly, and makes your skin looks and feels so good.

And since we still talking about the face, let’s talk makeup!! ..

DSC_0179 (1024x681)

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB: I got the shade Medium, and my thoughts on it would be “It’s ok” basically, it’s not bad, and it’s not great, i just didn’t like the fact that when you blend it out, it almost seems like nothing. the coverage didn’t really speak to my soul. and there’s definitely things better on the market, but that just my opinion.

Boutjois Healthy Mix Foundation: absolutely amazing foundation, I feel like if i’m done experimenting, i would probably go back to it, because it’s really good, it has been treating me well when i was using it, it’s satin-natural finish from what i tried, but it’s one of the best drugstore foundations, it’s actually my first foundation ever.

Victoria’s Secret Glossy Tint: I got this wayyy back in 2013 when the VSFS just aired and i was obsessed with their makeup look, and Candice Swanepoel. so i discovered that they used this in the show (the shade is Boudoir Pink) along with a color that  i don’t remember the shade’s name, but this is like a light, sheer everyday nude pink color, and i liked it, but i won’t repurchase it, actually it’s discontinue. so, thank god i don’t like it that much, and not many people go crazy for VS makeup.

L’Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim: I didn’t like it AT ALL!! like i only swatched it once, and it dried out completely, and i was carefully closing it, and try to keep it fresh and all, but it’s not great. although so many Youtube gurus recommend it, but i had a different experience with it. To me, it’s crap.

moving on to hair products, starting off with hair masks..

DSC_0175 (1024x681).jpg

these two hair masks are super affordable, especially here in SA. you can find them in supermarkets, herbalists, everywhere, and they’re not pricey at all.

Schwarzkopf Bonawell Apricot Oil & Pro Vitamin B5: this has been setting in my drawer for months, and i felt like it needs some love, so i tried it; i liked it, i recommend it, but i won’t repurchase it, maybe because i feel like there’s a whole lot better products on the market, but if you feel like trying something new without the risk, this one won’t let you down.

Silver Moon First Aid Doctor for Hair: this is such a great mask, i highly recommend it if you can find it, the consistency is thicker than the Beauty Formulas Avocado Oil treatment in my first empties post, but the result is the same, which i find it great.

it’s time for leave-in conditioners…

DSC_0176 (1024x681).jpg

Sunsilk x Ouidad Leave in conditioner: it’s really good, smells great, it’s the thickest leave in conditioner I’ve ever used consistency wise, and i really like it, and i highly recommend it for curly haired babes, cause it makes the curl less frizzy, shiny, and nourished.

Wella Pro Series Leave in balm for colored hair: it’s a spray form, didn’t do any harm or good for me, i didn’t like it, the fact that it’s a spray irritated me, so glad it’s over.

moving on to hair serums..

DSC_0177 (1024x681)

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil: finished my second bottle, and on my way finishing my third one. I just LOVE this serum.

Garnier Fructis Split-Ends Damage: it’s really good, but nothing replaces L’Oreal’s serum in my heart ❤

Okay, let’s talk body products..

DSC_0178 (1024x681).jpg

Victoria’s Secret Angel Dream Lotion: this lotion supposed to be my mom’s, but she gave it to me, and i was stuck with it until i finished it up. now the delivery system sucks, the cream itself way too runny, and the smell is not that great, i mean the perfume smelled really nice, but when it came to the lotion, i wouldn’t recommend it that much.

Fair & White Paris Serum Exclusive Whitenizer w/ Vitamin C: the whole review on it is right here .

L’Occitane Amande Milk Concentrate: Remember when i got this on my birthday back in January, and I showed it in a Birthday Haul. Well, now it’s empty, i would ABSOLUTELY repurchase, are you kidding me!! this is so good, and i love L’Occitane, this was a major success!! and i highly recommend it! !

Bath & Body Works Dark Kiss mini lotion: B&BW have definitely improved their products, formula and packaging, so i bought the Dark Kiss lotion, it smelled so yummy, but i won’t repurchase it again, because i like trying new scents (I used to be a signature scent type of girl, but i’m not anymore).

and then going for random but important things for the body..

DSC_0172 (1024x681)

Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Body Wash: i felt like buying this was useless, because the scent didn’t linger on my skin, this is actually came in minis set of (body wash, lotion, and body mist) but i always had problem with body wash scents lingering on my body, so the idea of buying a body wash matching to my lotion, is a waste of money for me. would not repurchase it.

Rexona Women Cotton Dry deodorant stick: I love Rexona’s deodorant sticks, they really do the job, but the cotton scent wasn’t really great, so i discovered the Bamboo scent (the green one) it smells so good, i’m happy that i found the scent that i like in Rexona. because i really like the deodorants, but i hated the available scents, now i have something that i like.

Nivea Stress Protect deodorant roll-on: it’s ok, like it’s really liquid-y , so you need time before wearing something and i don’t really have much time in the morning, plus it doesn’t last for long, and i’m a “sweaty” girl. i need help most of the time. and this product doesn’t help as much as Rexona’s.

the last thing i’m going to talk about is perfumes, that i finished up..

DSC_0180 (1024x681).jpg

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Mist: It smells fresh, and nice, i recommend it for a light, fresh, everyday, morning scent, but since i like trying new things, i won’t repurchase it.

Abdul Samad Al-Qurashi Hair Perfume: this is absolutely amazing for the hair, and it lingers, and it’s not harmful, plus it’s so luxurious. now, this little bottle lasted me 10 months and i used them almost every time i take a shower, meaning twice a week, plus my sisters used it with me. so this little bottle does last for long. not only you use it on your hair, but you can use it on your body by mixing it with your lotion. it’s custom scent, you choose what suits, i don’t remember the name, but i asked for a floral-y, french eau de parfum scent. I bought my second one recently.

Giorgio Armani Si: this is the cutest sample ever, i love samples that look exactly like the full bottle, and the scent is so yummy, and i may buy the full bottle, maybe not, who knows, but i really like it.

Acqua Di Parma Gelsomino Nobile eau de parfum: finished 2 samples of these, (although i got the full size one) but they gave me a whole bunch of samples when i was in Paris (check the full Paris beauty haul). and this scent is such a heavenly scent, i will repurchase it, and i highly recommend it to everyone, it smells the yummiest, and i got so many compliments when i wear this.

Acqua Di Parma Magnolia Nobile eau de parfum: this one smells really light and fresh, more fresh flower-y than the Gelsomino Nobile, but it’s really beautiful and i recommend it.

Acqua Di Parma Nobile Gelsomino eau de toilette: same great scent, but lighter, due it’s name eau de toilette.

 

Okay, finally; it took 2 weeks to finish it, sorry i’ll be away for a bit, cause i finals the next 2 weeks, and they will be hectic.

I really hope you liked this post, thank you so much for reading, and i’ll see you hopefully very soon..

Love, Shahad..//

 

 

Shahad’s Fashion Rack: Culottes.

a4f2f0ef5e521569057a603338262217

Hello again beauties, Today I got you a mini fashion post, and i’m going to talk about one of my favorite clothing item; Culottes..

When I was searching for some photos on Pinterest, a pin came up saying it’s inspired by the 40’s, which i think it’s pretty cool to see a trend from an era that not a lot of people talking about (Fashion and beauty wise) it’s not as popular in fashion and beauty such as the 1920’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, and (recently) the 90’s. 30’s and 40’s seem to be a little forgotten from the industry, so it’s really nice to see something coming up from back then.

Okay, let’s keep talking culottes. so i don’t know if it’s not a trend anymore, but i don’t care, if i like something, i’ll talk about it no matter what.

anyways, so i got you some pictures today from Pinterest, Instagram, and I styled some from Polyvore.

Shahad’s Beauty Book: Special Occasion Face/.. Full Coverage Foundation.

16222938a7df9bacffc6c0522eff7479

Hello beauties welcome back to my blog, thank you for being patient with me and how busy i’ve been lately.

So, i’m finally writing this post, you know most of my posts lately haven’t been about makeup or beauty, it was all things that are related to fashion, or something doesn’t have to do with photography, because it’s been really hard to photograph lately.

anyways, back to the subject, so today, i’m going to show you my full coverage foundation routine, that i trust with my life. with all the tools, and why i love these products what i use them for, are they great, why are they so great to me. and all the stuff you need to know about a good foundation routine.

[Not to prime, is a CRIME ‘] 

Let’s start with priming.. 

DSC_2807 (1024x670)

So, to prime my face i use the Bare Minerals Prime Time Original, it’s not your pore filling primer, but it has that silicone-y feeling; it’s one of those silicone primers, the ones where they feel velvety but they’re not pore filling, they don’t dry out your skin, they just PRIME it for ya.  Now, i don’t have pores, nor my skin is oily or combination, so i don’t use the pore filling primers; actually, i have normal-dry skin, so pore filling primers would dry out my skin, revealing flakes almost everywhere (on a bad skin day)

for eye primer i use is The Body Shop Insta Blur Eye, it’s actually not mine, it’s my sister’s; she used it before, i liked it when it was her’s, but she gave it to me; only to know that it’s not that great actually. It works, but it’s not that great as i said. like, it keeps the eye shadow from creasing for approximately 6 hours before it creases badly (which is okay if you’re going out for dinner of 2 hours and going home and removing your makeup, but not for everyday 8-12 hours of the day).

Now, moving on to correcting.. 

DSC_0173 (1024x681)

Okay, so i have a problem concealing my dark circles due to how dark they are (they’re not that dark but they are considered as dark) anyways, i stumbled across this baby after a Saudi Instagram blogger said that it changed her life and i was like “maybe it will change mine too” so i got it and GUURRLL, that shit changed my soul not even my life *hands held together for a prayer* !!

it’s the best thing EVER!! it’s the Benefit Erase Paste, the thing about it that it’s salmon, not pure orange, because pure orange is used for heavy concealer, and i use a light in formula concealer. so salmon is great of a color, my shade is #2.

i apply it with a synthetic flat concealer brush from the Eco Tools kit, and blend it with the Micro Beauty Blenders. {The green ones} 

and since the corrector isn’t for showing, i apply it before foundation..

DSC_2809 (1024x681)

This is the star of the show, the one, the only, the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless  Foundation,,, *applause*

This is the foundation that i currently use and LOVE! it’s absolutely amazing, it’s semi-matte, but you feel like there’s a hydrating properties in it, it’s full coverage, but feels so light on the skin, it’s (uhm) watery, like really runny, and fluid. for example when i pump it into the back of my hand, as soon as it lands, it runs down, that’s how runny it is. but it’s definitely a winner.

As I said above, i have normal-dry skin; and this foundation works like magic on my skin, and my cousin have oily-combination skin, and it looked so good on her, so i feel like unless your skin is super-dry to dehydrated, you can use it.

because taking care of your skin is the key to foundation look good on you.

So, i apply this foundation with 2 steps:..

DSC_0174 (1024x681)

Step 1:.. I apply the foundation off the back of my hands with a flat foundation brush from Eco Tools, and almost paint my face with it, this will give you a full coverage but there will streaking from “painting your face”.

to blend out the streaking, let’s go to step 2..

DSC_0175 (1024x681)

Step 2:.. I blend out the foundation with my damp white Beauty Blender (sorry for being too dirty, i wash it regularly) the white beauty blender is stiffer than the black or the pink one, i don’t know why it just does.

so, this way you got yourself a full coverage, streak free finish.

Now, it’s time for concealer..

DSC_0171 (1024x681)

For concealer, i don’t use a heavy concealer, i don’t know why, but instead i use the Garnier concealer roller or something, in the color light, just to add a little highlighting to my face, and to apply that i use the beloved micro beauty blenders.

that’s it actually for concealing i don’t do much.

to set all that in place, we have to powder..

DSC_2816 (1024x681)

To set the concealer underneath my eyes, i mix The Balm’s Sexy Mama Translucent powder with Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Finish powder in Pale Yellow. 

DSC_2817 (1024x681)

and i use this mini powder brush for that, because it can get to underneath my eyes, over my lids and crease, and place the highlight powder precisely.

DSC_2818 (1024x681)

and to set my entire face i use The Balm’s Sexy Mama Translucent powder alone, with this big kabuki brush, because it set the whole entire face at once.

I don’t contour, I bronze..

DSC_2819 (1024x681)DSC_2835 (1024x681)

as a base, i use The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in #4 to add dimension cause it’s matte, and since it’s crumbled; it becomes more pigmented, so i use that to add dimension to my face.

and to add that beautiful bronze glow to my face i use the Makeup Forever Pro Bronze Fusion in #151, to complete that glow, and since this bronzer got some golden shimmery particles it gives that golden goddess skin.

DSC_2820 (1024x681)

And I apply both with this Claire’s brush that my mom got me YEARS ago, and i’m throwing it out but..

*I need suggestion for a good bronzer brush. 

But this one is doing it for now 🙂

to complete the glow, we’ll add highlighter..

DSC_2826 (1024x681)

I have such deep love for The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer, it is absolutely something else. I love using it for everyday makeup, or even special occasion makeup, it’s always a winner, and i apply it with this magic wand by MAC the brush #184.

& finally to add color to the face, BLUSH..

Now, I don’t use any color for blush for special occasions, it has to be a sophisticated color, almost suits every dress, eye makeup, and lip  color. so i chose for 3 blushes for different price ranges, 2 powders and one cream (if you wanted a dewy look). not too pink, nor too peach, nor too bright, more muted, neutral, almost natural on the skin colors.

DSC_2821 (1024x681) DSC_2823 (1024x681)

[from top left] Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in #6 Powder Pink, NYX Powder Blush in Terracotta, Nars Dolce Vita. 

To me, these three are great for special occasions, i feel like these blushes i can rely on when i don’t want things to clash.

& here's some swatches for ya :)

& here’s some swatches for ya 🙂

DSC_2825 (1024x681)

And I apply this blush with The Body Shop Blush Brush ,and I love this brush because it’s flat, so it lays the color down on the cheeks, but fluffy at the top, so it blends out the excess color on the cheeks..

So, that was for today’s post, finally something involves explaining and photography and long posts, and not only photos from the internet.

Thank you so much for reading this post, really hope you liked it, and found it helpful, again thank you for reading and i’ll see you very soon..

Love, Shahad..//

Mini Shoe & Makeup Haul ♥

‫DSC_0158 (1024x681) - نسخة

Hello my beauties, welcome back, as i will say, I’ve been SOOO busy with school work and stuff, i just finished a project (it was about the breast cancer awareness, you a day for that and all) and also, since i was so tired that i come back from school, i would sleep immediately ’til evening, and i need the sunlight for the photography.

so, most of the posts have been inspirational, doesn’t involve photography and anything helpful much.

but, i have a collective haul for you today, and i hope you’ll be pleased..!

starting with makeup products..

DSC_0160 (1024x681)

I was on the hunt for the perfect matte burgundy lipstick, and i came across the love of my life, ironically, it’s from a brand i dislike and certainly don’t trust </3 but i am now living happy with it, and there’s love between us two..

It’s the Max Factor LIPFINITY Color + Gloss in 550 Reflective Ruby, it’s a liquid lipstick on one side, and the other one is a matching gloss, i usually don’t wear lipgloss with dark lips, (cause basically dark matte lip is much more perfect) so yeah it’s absolutely amazing. and i swatched it in store and it took days for me to take it off properly, but on the lips it takes off easily. but it can get patchy a little if you didn’t use it in the right way.

and while i was on my way, i found a great colored pencil, that’s it’s actually a great way to wear color on your eyes if you’re not ready to go bold, since purple, works on all eye colors. It’s the NYX Slide on eye pencil in SL13 Jewel.

and i was happy to find out that the Rimmel ScandalEyes in Nude are finally available in the middle east, so got myself one.

DSC_0163 (1024x681)

the NYX pencil is less of blue toned purple in real life, since it’s more like a gold reflective purple. it’s almost like a plummy purple.

DSC_0167 (1024x681)

and here’s swatches for the lipstick…<3

and now moving on to the shoes..

DSC_0159 (1024x681)

I got these fierce beauties from Nine West, and i absolutely love them, i haven’t got the chance to wear them yet, but hopefully soon.DSC_0158 (1024x681)

& last but not least, the star of the show, the grand finale, the baby, THE Adidas Superstar trainers, and if you remember these babies from the Fashion wishlist, you know how much i wanted them and i finally got them, i got them from ASOS. and i am so glad that i did..

that was it for the haul really hope you liked it, and i’ll see you next time.,

Love, Shahad..//

Shahad’s Fashion Rack: The LBS (How to style The Fringed skirt)

DSC_2807 (1024x681)

Hello beauties ! welcome back, today i have a couple of outfits i made, so that it would be easy to style the fringed skirt, by the fact that it’s harder than the pencil and the faux leather to style.

i have some really glamorous outfits, and other that is more casual and laid-back.

I believe that fringes, fur, and bling, are the ultimate glamorous combo, i think that mixing neutrals, really helps to make any outfit glamorous.

fri2

I feel like this outfit is more of simple day, or even work outfit, for some reason, and i added a pop of color for something else.

fri3

I personally, feel like black, gold, and leather, are the ultimate classic combo for a night out, matching textures is something new to me personally, but i feel like it could work, and look chic.

fri4

this is probably the most casual of them all, but it’s my favorite.

fri5

this is like, really chic, fancy dinner type of outfit. with the white almost taking over, and the rose gold, with a little black and grey.

fri6

the last outfit is like, casual chic, it’s casual; but with a hint of glam to it, i like it, and i also added some khaki for a new neutral to add.

so that was it for today’s post, hope you liked it, thank you so much for reading and i’ll see you next time.

and by the way right now, i’m celebrating my sister’s engagement party (probably!)

Shahad’s Fashion Rack:The LBS (Fringed)

I believe that fringed mini skirt is quite the statement, and sometimes it’s quite hard to style, and i know that fringes is not everyone’s cup of tea, but i (personally) believe that fringes are awesome, if you wanna go slightly bolder than usually, a black mini fringed skirt is big baby step for going bolder.

fringes surprisingly can be good for a casual day outfit, but I’ve always thought that fringes are awesome for a night out with the girls, such a statement.

Imagine wearing the same top and skirt as the picture but with like sneakers or something… i think it would look so cool, for a casual outfit.

I feel like an all-black outfit makes the fringes standout, because between the monochrome look, there’s a little movement to the outfit.

does feather count as fringed?! if it does, then this will make a bolder statement than the leather one.

mini skirt, and longer fringes, why didn’t think of this? this is the best idea ever, like this IS statement. i LOVE it.. !!!

So, that was it for the post, really hope you liked it, thank you so much for reading and i’ll see you next time.

I’ve always been fascinated by the close up runway shots, there’s something alive about it, because the basic shot of a model walking down the runway is boring to death, the close up shot can be unusual, interesting, and mysterious; because you see the shot without knowing the model, kind of exciting in a way. and the photos themselves can be editorial-esk.

that was a quick post, i wrote it, because i’m bored and i wanted to update my blog + I’m still going to write a post tomorrow (as every Friday).

Thank you for reading and i’ll see you next time.

Shahad’s Wishlist: Fashion Edition, 2015..

بدون عنوان

Hello beauties, it’s been almost 12 days since i wrote my last post, which is not nice, i know. But the Eid days are over, and it’s time to go back to reality.. so school came up, and i had absolutely no time at all for anything. but i wanted to write a quick post you might like, you might not, (i’m still looking for time to post something might be helpful) but, i hope this will do it for now at least, like for example on Sunday i have an algebra test, and it freaks the shit out of me, but i gotta make time for everything if i wanna maintain my life the right way, AM I RIGHT?! CAN I GET AN AMEN??!!

i’m sorry, i just had so much to say, i’ll get to the point now..

Starting with things from ASOS.com

The first thing is this camo utility jacket it’s from New Look on Asos, and it’s looks really similar to one from Nastygal except it’s much more affordable. an absolute love for this jacket.

The next thing i’ve been eyeing for so long, it’s the Adidas Originals Superstar trainers, and it’s really hard to get it now, even online, so hopefully i can get one really soon.

moving on to Topshop..

It’s really hard to find Topshop now, in the east region, because it just does, and i llooovve Topshop jeans, and i only want like a black and a white ripped jeans, because i basically need them in my life, like RIGHT NOWW!!

so yeah, hopefully i will go somewhere sells Topshop really soon, who knows what the future hold..

*The black are the MOTO Jamie Jeans, and the white is no longer available on the site. 

Next move on The White Fox Boutique…
