Kicking off the Party Season in Feathers

Kicking off the Party Season in Feathers

Last weekend some friends organized a party to welcome the holiday season. This was the perfect opportunity to wear this fun feather skirt I purchased during the Thanksgiving weekend. I was planning to wear it on New Years’s Eve but couldn’t wait that long. What can I say?! I’m enchanted by feathers! I recently shared […]

Mission Accomplished

Mission Accomplished

  My search has finally ended! For a number of weeks, I’ve been looking for a black coat with a style that will allow me to wear the piece for both casual and formal events. When I saw this coat online a week ago, I loved its standing collar and slightly fitted silhouette (the cut is […]

A Serious Flirt

A Serious Flirt

It’s Friday, so for today’s post, I chose my new favorite dress that is perfect to wear while escaping from the nine-to-five grind. I’m enchanted by its design, which combines two contrasting elements: seriousness and playfulness. While the top part of the dress, with a high-cut neckline and long sleeves, presents a demure silhouette, the skirt, […]

Here’s the Skinny!

Here’s the Skinny!

The skinny scarf — I’ve become a fan of this accessory. Who would think that a long thin piece of cloth could totally transform an outfit, lending it excitement and a touch of sophistication? Since I first noticed this piece as a part of many different runway outfits, I became crazy about the trend. Last […]

An Exceptional Find

An Exceptional Find

 Not at all your average pencil skirt… When I saw this skirt online yesterday, I  immediately added it to my wish list (desperately trying to remain patient until a store promotion finally induces me to click the purchase button!). When choosing clothing for work, I tend toward the classic style; however, I prefer pieces featuring […]

A Pleated Debut

A Pleated Debut

  Since I first saw pleated skirts of different lengths and materials make their appearance in magazines, stores, and blogs, I started a search for one that would perfectly fit me. Finally, I can introduce my ideal pleated skirt. The skirt features flattering pleats that move freely from side to side as I walk. I chose this uneven length sweater (the back […]

Love at First Sight

Happy Monday! I hope you had a delightful weekend and are ready for a new week. I usually want the weekends to last longer. However, I’m happy this week has already started since Pope Francis will arrive here, Washington, D.C., tomorrow. Consider me one of his many big admirers. Now, on another note, today’s look features a peplum […]

An Early Milestone

An Early Milestone

Yesterday was my 3rd month blog anniversary (a truly joyful event for me)! As recently as four months ago, I had no idea how to create a blog, wasn’t active on social media, and was somewhat camera shy. In spite of these challenges, my blog has reached the quarter-year mark! As much as I enjoy sharing […]

A First Time Favorite

A First Time Favorite

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fun weekend! I didn’t do anything special this time; I just ran some errands, cooked for the week, and relaxed with my family. I always enjoy staying at home, eating pizza, and watching a good movie. Now, let’s talk about today’s look. I’ve finally purchased my first long vest! […]

A Minimalist Summer Formula

A Minimalist Summer Formula

One reason I enjoy summer so much is that creating a stylish outfit becomes such a simple affair. Today’s look is the result of my summer outfit formula (a cute, comfortable dress + heels) for getting ready quickly and going out on a date. I’m enchanted by this dress because its print reminds me of abstract artwork and its cut cools me down on […]

  Time to start a new week!  I hope you had an excellent weekend! I had time to relax at home and went out for dinner on Saturday. Last week it was Restaurant Week here in D.C., so my family and I took advantage of it and visited one of our favorite steakhouses, Fogo de Chao. […]

A Reinvigorated Classic

A Reinvigorated Classic

Although fall is exactly one month away, the current temperature and humidity here in Washington, D.C. are almost unbearably high. While looking for late summer pieces at different stores, I saw a number of beautiful floral dresses. One of them, featuring large flowers, reminded me of this dress, which I’ve owned for a while now. […]

A Flowery Statement

Hi! Good morning! I hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did. I spent a fantastic couple of days in New York City. Unfortunately, my weekend trips are always too short for all my planned activities. This visit I didn’t have enough time to see the Metropolitan Museum of Art. However, I did […]

An Evening in Monochrome

An Evening in Monochrome

During summer and spring I enjoy wearing colorful pieces. However, an all-black look is my go-to option all year round. A monochromatic outfit is easily put together and embodies a sense of effortless sophistication. For an early dinner with my husband, I wore a halter, my favorite style of top, with wide-leg pants. I love […]

Spice Up That Basic LBD

Spice Up That Basic LBD

When it comes to dresses, the LBD (little black dress) is one of the most versatile pieces, and thus a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. Although I have acquired various LBDs the last few years, I can never look away when I pass by one of these must-haves at a store. Weeks ago, I was walking by an […]

Simply Graceful

Simply Graceful

Choosing the right jewelry for an outfit is as important as combining the pieces that will make up the ensemble. The right accessories can transform a simple outfit into a head-turning one, and the wrong accessories can accomplish the opposite. My favorite jewelry includes necklaces, earrings, and bracelets; seldom do I wear rings. This year, I have embraced simplicity by wearing a single, […]

Enamored with Floating Blooms

Enamored with Floating Blooms

One of the fashion trends I have eagerly embraced this year is the floral print. I like the large and vibrant floral patterns that contrast with my dark hair as much as the smaller, delicate bloom designs that give my outfits a special feminine touch. A second trend that I have adopted is the cropped tops. I […]

Whispering in Pink

Whispering in Pink

What color is more feminine and romantic than soft pink? This color is one of my favorites, and I tend to wear pale pink pieces especially during summer and spring. In spring, this shade of pink reminds me of delicate flowers starting to bloom, especially the magnificent cherry blossoms here in D.C. Wearing this tone makes […]

All about the Shades

All about the Shades

Sunglasses are a fabulous style accessory and my favorite. I have been accustomed to wearing them since I had LASIK eye surgery years ago. I used to wear a pair only on sunny days until I heard that even on overcast days your eyes can be damaged by the powerful UV rays. Now, if I am outdoors, I always have my shades […]
