Bling Post

#AccessoriesCrush: The ‘Bling’ Edit

2 things about me you didn’t know (or maybe you did actually but hey I’ll say it anyway!). A. I am all for the ‘chic & classy’ look. B. I do love a bit of bling too.

And these are my favourite pieces. They only come out at the weekend since I work in a fairly corporate environment but when the bling comes out, you know there’s going to be partying & dancing involved!

OK so these aren’t expensive pieces at all. In fact, investing in jewellery isn’t my thing at all and I would much rather have loads of options so my favourite points of call in the bling department are H&M, New Look and River Island!

Love hoop earrings (the bigger, the better), love the whole rapper – gold chain thing and I do also like the more girlie/flowery look.

Wanna show me your bling?! (did that sound a bit dodgy?) Tag me in your post!

#JewelleryCrush: Azza Fahmy for Matthew Williamson Collection Launch

Leading luxury jewellery design house, Azza Fahmy, and celebrated British fashion designer, Matthew Williamson, have renewed their collaborative partnership for a second season and were in Dubai to reveal their Azza Fahmy for Matthew Williamson Autumn/Winter 2014 fine jewellery collection exclusively at Bloomingdale’s-Dubai last week.

Yours truly was privileged enough to be invited to attend the event and check out the collection before everyone else!

Featuring 21 red carpet ready pieces, the Azza Fahmy for Matthew Williamson Autumn/Winter 2014 fine jewellery collection debuted at Matthew Williamson’s London Fashion Week show on February 16, 2014 and highlights the Azza Fahmy signature trademark of sterling silver and 18ct gold combination finishes which creatively reinterprets the star motif in Williamson’s AW14 runway collection. Designed to complement Matthew Williamson’s use of patterns, textures and rich colour palette, the jewellery reflects the high-glamour and exuberant spirit of his coveted designs.

Love the style! Actually have my eye on the silver ring which would look so lovely this Summer!

In addition to the AW14 showcase, pieces from the Azza Fahmy for Matthew Williamson Spring/Summer 2014 collection will also be on display and available for purchase.

Azza Fahmy for Matthew Williamson is available in the Fine Jewellery and Watches Department on the First Floor at Bloomingdale’s-Dubai, The Dubai Mall beginning May 14, 2014.

Can’t believe I even got to meet the lady AND the man himself :)!

Guest blogger post: Trend Alert by Haya! The future is…. crystal clear.

Anything and everything that is see-through it HOT HOT HOT right now! 

And it’s not as tacky as it sounds! As seen on Savoir Flair.

If it’s elegant enough for Chanel, Hermes, Burberry, Valentino and Jenny Packham (Kate Middleton’s fave brand), then they must be on to something!

MAIN IMAGE

 

As much as the trend has been huge on the runways, we have seen very little of it on the High Street here and believe me we have looked everywhere! Still, we’ve managed to scout a couple of nice pairs of shoes and cute purses.

Here is how to ROCK the clear trend on a high street budget:

Clear Shoes

Shoe1

 

These ALDO beauties are so stylish and elegant, wear them to lunch or to the office and it is an instant update to your look!

 

 

 

 

Shoe2

 

 

These are from Berksha and both look stylish AND feel super comfy! Plus at AED425 it’s a steal!

 

 

 

 

Clear bags

BAGS1

I adooooore these cute little clutches from Zara!  Can’t quite decide whether to go for the green one OR the yellow one… would just add that glam pop of colour to an outfit!
But then again, at AED145 each, I might just get both of them!

 

 

Iconic

Now this one is definitively my STAR buy!

Found it in Iconic for only AED100! PLUS I love the detail of the golden bird, gives it just the right amount of edge without going over board.

I really am loving this whole clear trend at the moment, such an amazing accessory for any outfit any day!

I’m off to scout the next cool trend for you guys! ‘Til next time….

XOXO
