Kimonos and Henna for Eid Al-Fitr 2017

Fashion, Home

This Eid my outfit was put together in quite the last minute fashion. I got all my clothes and my henna done the day before. Thankfully Zara was having quite the sale and I was able to create quite the outfit and find my new favorite pair of jeans. IMG_8099img_8103.jpgIMG_8101IMG_8105

I picked up the kimono and jeans from Zara. The kimono adds a nice bit of brightness and color to the outfit while also providing a change to my usual style. The kimono has quite the variety of blues and peach tones and a very unique floral patten. It is quite a fresh twist on a classic and makes the perfect statement piece. The jeans are made of a light blue denim material with added metal accents at bottom of and around the belt loops. The shirt I wore underneath was a simple black blouse from J Crew, that can be thrown on under any jacket. My shoes are the Krista in black leather from Steve Madden. The platform starts with a cork like material to a white cleated sole. They have a 2.5 inch heel and a 1 inch platform. Lastly, my hijab is from Shop the Souq. It is a very light material (perfect for the summer time, and still provides the larger hijab look I love.

This outfit was perfect for its occasion because it was comfortable while also stylish as hell. The shoes provide the perfect amount of height to give anyone that extra oomph and the kimono and accents on the jeans truly could truly make anyone stand out.

Eye Look of the Month: June 2017

Beauty, Home

I have decided to create an eye look for every month that in a way captures the essence of the time of year. The looks can range from neutrals to completely avant-garde and unwearable. They can also represent my general thoughts, emotions, and overall state of mind during the month.

This look captures all the June vibes with graduation and prom being its most prominent events for students. The darkness on the outer corner adds a bit of dimension to the eyes while also allowing the gorgeous pigment at the the front half of the eye have its moment. This look is perfect for any event or simply to just go out. (Please excuse the lopsidedness of my eyes, my head was slightly tilted.)
