Denim skirts are an absolute wardrobe essential. They can be styled all year round with or without stockings. With flats, heels, flip flops…limits are endless.I styled this classic denim skirt with a plain white tee and a statement coat which I had bought from Asos.

Last but not least I wore these new gorgeous brogue Gucci pumps which you’ll be seeing a lot of.

Matchy with Cuba

“Baby it’s getting cold outside” is getting real now! I bought this very hot metallic blue jacket by SAM on shopbop. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m loving it! Not just is the quality beyond my expectations but I’ve also been receiving great compliments over my jacket. Even men would love to buy one and the good news is that SAM have a men’s collection as well.I paired it with my black Ice cap and my baby’s Petlife outdoor jacket. It was fun pairing with my Frenchie for a change :)Jacket: SAM
Shoes: Chanel
Cuba’s Jacket: Petlife

الجو ابتدا فعلا يبقي برد. عشان كده كنت عاملة حسابي اشتري جاكت بيدفي جدا و اشتريت جات ازرق بيلمع من سام في شوب بوب. و مش قادرة بجد اقولكم اد ايه ان بحبه مش بس عشان الجودة العالية جدا و ده لانع معظم اللي شاف الجاكت اعجبوا بيه. حتي اصدقائي عايزين يشتروا و من الاخبار اللي تبسط لاصدقائي ان فيه كولكشن جواكت رجالي عند سام.

لبست الجاكت مع ايس كاب اسود و كلبي كوبا كان لابس بت لايف جاكت. وده من الحاجات اللي دمها خفيف اننا نلبس زي بعض 🙂

The return of the Bandana

The paisley printed Bandana mania has returned and I couldn’t help but sneak it into my outfits lately! The classic Iranian print is going viral once again. You can see it on clothes, pants, tops, even on shoes! And off course on the scarf itself!I have added some of my favorite bandana-paisley print picks from shopbop. My first favorite is this gorgeous studded Paisley bandana by Marc Jacobs I also fell head over heels for this gorgeous Jen’s Pirate Booty bandana dress!

Black on black

I’m loving my new Peek-a-boo shoes by Aennis Eunis. The shoe is perfect for any night out and it’s extra hot!! I fell head over heels for it the moment I spotted it I had to have it.
Sometimes like on this night I felt like wearing something plain black with a black plain choker and then I noticed a statement shoe was necessary! This kind of shoe is always perfect whether with jeans or on something plain it will always stand out and that’s what I keep striving for, pieces that stand out in any season at anytime!

I’m loving my new Versus Versace one shoulder dress with Medusa coins from Shopbop. Heading out to an early dinner party I decided to put my hair up in a bun and let my pearl earcuff do some magic on my ears.

I personally love Medusa and anything with Medusa coins. I read a lot about the history of Medusa and why Versace uses her. In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly into her eyes would turn onlookers to stone. Medusa has been featured in several works of fiction, including video games, movies, cartoons and books. She’s Gianni Versace’s symbol and was chosen because she represents beauty, art, and philosophy.

I styled the dress with simple black over the knee boots, a Yazbukey clutch and Miumiu shades.
Clutch: Yazbukey 
Sunglasses: MiuMiu 
 Fullah Sugah

Finally you can see all the four winter outfits I styled for Fullah Sugah!About the brand:
Fullah Sugah is a Greek brand for any age. Their collections of accessories, clothes and shoes accentuate women’s femininity while combining quality materials and innovative designs with fashion trends and each woman’s individual peculiarities and buying power. This way balance is achieved between a modern appearance, quality and of course price tags.Personally I think they have some great pieces on trend like for example fringe bags, stylish hats and shoes with extremely affordable prices.Fullah SugahFitted Blazer

Classic fitted blazers are always a must in a woman’s wardrobe. My favorites remain Ralph Lauren with their classic batch and gold buttons and off course Balmain.
On this sunny day on my way to a meeting I was wearing a black and white Topshop skirt and crop top underneath this hot red Balmain blazer.
Is styled them with Valentino ankle boots and the limited edition pearl Dior bag.

Starry Eyes

I was never a fan of eyes on clothing but it seriously grew on to me. I still wouldn’t wear the evil eye much but I like the new fashionable eyes seen on clothing and shoes lately as seen here on my Rytta Couture embroidered top.I styled it last week on my way out with a jeans collar around the neck from River Island, a pair of ripped white Zara jeans and my pink glitter sunglasses and heels by MiuMiu.How can I forget to mention: Meet our newest two family members Mars and Bugsy!Top: Rytta Couture

It’s been a while since I’ve last bought any laser-cut faux leather item. Those pair of pants I’m wearing are H&M. I stood there for a good five minutes last month contemplating whether to buy them or not. The reason I had this immense hesitation was due to the fact that they do look sorry to say “very cheap”! Then I decided to buy them knowing I will style them taking it as my very own challenge. Sometimes wearing a cheap looking item along some rich pieces is actually what gives an extremely sexy vibe…I styled them with my classic over the knee Phillip Lim boots along this gorgeous new Pinko duster coat and my favorite new MiuMiu shades.Duster Coat: Pinko
Pants: H&M
Top: Bershka
Bag: Hermes Birkin

My second favorite beach look of the season was this Bershka black lace cover-up worn with a pair of fringe black gladiators and my

Ibo Maraca hand-painted Panama hat. Ibo Maraca, a Greek designer, has become one of the leading hat painters in the world. His hats are lovely so be sure to check them out!

Black transparent cover-ups are always my favorite during summer and they blend especially well with blonde hair 😉

I love this lace dress by Bershka and it was really well priced as well which is why I won’t shed tears over it being ruined by the end of summer. If you are the type that likes to stay salty with beach water and sand on your skin long after your swim then don’t go for expensive brands as seawater seriously ruins fabrics.

By the beach

I have been posting a lot of pictures of the impeccable beaches of Egypt’s North Coast on my social media accounts. I’ve been here since two weeks and I still can’t get over how crystal clear the waters are.
I was wearing a flower bikini by Etna which I came across in a boutique in Beirut. I styled it with a simple denim skirt overall by Zara and a flower headpiece for the perfect beach

This outfit is when I finally decided to show my bump all the way! I wore this pair of jeans with a tight top by Minkie London.
I decided to spice it up a little with a hat, choker and over the knee boots! Wearing a hat and a choker had become one of my new favorite fashion habits lately…what do you guys think?Top: Minkie

So I’m kind of stuck with a few jeans that fit me during pregnancy. This one is one of my favorites! It’s not a maternity jeans but it’s quite stretchy and still fits me perfectly.
I styled it with a simple pastel colored t-shirt to which I wore a collar just to style it up a little and my velvet blue blazer by Topshop.Top: &Other Stories

I love my Joe’s Maternity jeans! They’re skinny and all 🙂 You can find them and many other cool Maternity Wear at one of the worlds best maternity shops located in Miami “A Pea in the Pod”. I think they also ship internationally but I’m not sure.
I styled them a bit differently as you can see in the pictures…I pulled the stomach cover up down as it was a hot day and I couldn’t stand another layer over my stomach!
Going for wide cut blouses during my last trimester is a good way to keep the heat of my body. I was wearing this flowy flower printed blouse by London based designer CiCi.

30 Weeks

So I’m already a bit over 30 weeks pregnant here…starting my 8th month next week! I was surprised to still be able to zip up in this small sized baggy OneTeaSpoon jeans 🙂 it’s a size 26! And the only size 26 non-stretch jeans which actually still fit me now…
On this sunny day in Cairo I was wearing this gorgeous silk Missoni top with sleeve-ties which I love. I wore this black-washed leather Isabel Marant jacket over it and my new white Fendi shoes.Photography: Abu SamraTop: Missoni

I had a great time exploring the various shops, restaurants and fun spots in Cairo’s SunCity Mall.

SunCity Mall in my opinion is where shopping meets luxury and it transports you to a new level of shopping. The mall is also beautiful with it’s stainless columns to the crystal lit chandeliers. Here you will find many international brands like GAP, Mango, Nine West, H&M, Monsoon, BabyShop and Mothercare.

It is also the ultimate entertainment destination in Cairo. Who would have thought we can finally Ice-Skate in Egypt? Well YAYYY now we can with their newly opened Ice Kingdom featuring an indoor skating rink and an outdoor ice slide – a definite must try! I personally had a blast ice-skating and can’t wait to get on the slide 🙂

After my Ice-Skating experience I went over to Fun Kingdom where they have various “fun” activities not only for children but also for grown-ups who enjoy parks and games. It’s an entire entertainment center featuring a variety of rides, arcade games, bowling and the perfect birthday party room.

Last but not least in the heart of this mall lies Cairo’s best hidden secret hotel, the Gabriel Hotel. The Gabriel Award is a winning Boutique hotel hidden away from the chaos and traffic of everyday life. I saw their gorgeous rooms and tried out Salt restaurant and I must say the food was delicious! A mix of the finest French cuisine with a Mediterranean flare.

Jumia Chic Asfour Awards 2015

I was lucky to be amongst the four fashion-blogs selected as nominees for Egypt’s first ever annual fashion awards and even more lucky to actually be the winner! 🙂 JUMIA Chic, the fashion blog created by Jumia Egypt, revealed the long-awaited Jumia Chic Asfour Awards 2015 winners during an extravagant event held at the Four Seasons Giza in Cairo. The event witnessed 11 awards presented to 11 young Egyptian talents. The categories were best fashion-blog, best photographer, best fashion designer, best make-up artist, and many more.
Susan Sabet, Pashion magazine’s publisher and editor-in-chief along with the team at Jumia Chic’s editorial section had carefully selected the 32 nominees after much evaluation. Voting started on the 24th of January online up until a few days before the event.
“An award like the Jumia Chic Asfour Awards motivates and generates attention towards the nominees and the industry in Egypt and announcing the winners today is a phenomenal display of talent in the fashion industry. The Jumia Chic Asfour Awards gives us the chance to praise not only the winners but to celebrate all of the individuals that contribute to the incredible achievements in the fashion industry” said Susan Sabet, Pashion Magazine’s Publisher and Editor in Chief.
I strongly loved seeing the fashion industry grow at this fast rate over the past few years in Egypt. I still remember the first day I started my blog there was only one blog I knew of in Egypt which was Chanel Cashmere Cupcakes and Crayons run by my dear friend Noha Youssef. Many people were not even familiar with the word blog itself. Today there are many new blogs and thousands of young Egyptians on social media accounts posting their daily fashion-tips and outfits. It’s so much fun to see us all growing and interacting together and becoming more international.
I was wearing this gorgeous Alice and Olivia dress with embroidery on it which I styled with my new favorite Valentino headpiece which you will be seeing a lot of because I’m kind of obsessed with it and wearing it to just one event wasn’t enough!Dress: Alice and Olivia

On a sunny day like this in Cairo I finally wore my new OneTeaSpoon ripped baggy jeans. I can tell I won’t be taking those bad boys off for a while now.
Best thing about Cairo in winter is that you can literally wear a short sleeved top as long as you keep warm as I did with this amazing fluffy Love Tree vest! I paired them with the classic Celine oversized Audrey shades, limited edition Fendi 3Jours bag and rose Philip Lim heels to give them a bit of a chic look!

The Candy Shop

It’s always been my pleasure indulging in Candy Shops! While taking a tour around Suncity Mall (which I will be posting about in my next post) I discovered the best Candy Shop yet, located right across their “fun” Kingdom which is truly as the name says it FUN! The kingdom is a huge entertainment center featuring a variety of rides, arcade games, bowling and the perfect birthday party room for anyone wishing to throw that one-of-a-kind party!
When you’re a candy lover like me you will truly value and love this shop. There’s certain candy I only get to purchase when in the states as it’s never available in other countries not even imported to Europe! But guess what…here they have it all…:) I was wearing a simple polka dot dress by Miss Patina (an emerging British designer) which I styled with a small fun “Push Once” brooch by Tatty Devine and Stuart Weitzman boots.Venue: Suncity Mall

Two days ago I was heading out in Cairo wearing this gorgeous dress by a new British emerging designer Miss Patina. They’re collections are all inspired by Vintage style and pieces.
I paired it with a matching shirt by the same brand.
For me Mustard is always a fashionable color throughout any season. It’s not too bright for winter and still lovely in summer…one of those colors you can wear throughout.

I have just received my brand new pink Adidas Energy Boost running shoes and I am loving them, not only for their hot pink color! If you are a runner and enjoy trying different shoes as I do then you should definitely give them a try.
The newly introduced shoe provides more responsiveness with heel to toe BOOST™ foam that stores and returns energy to ensure the more energy you give, the more you will get.
The new Running shoe provides comfort with elegance. The upper stretch mesh hugs the foot shape while allowing added ventilation to keep your feet cooler during runs, which is what I have always loved about most Adidas shoes, the ventilation.
Also, the BOOST cushioning remains consistent in any weather under and circumstance while the standard EVA expands and hardens in varying temperatures.
“Energy Boost allows runners to focus on the path ahead by providing a consistently comfortable and energetic run every time they lace up,” said Adrian Leek, senior vice president of adidas running. “BOOST responsive cushioning and the supporting technologies in Energy BOOST eliminate unwanted variables and provide runners with complete confidence.”

Barbie World

My new shoot for Galleria40 featured a Barbie inspired second outfit. We tried to create a pink world around inside their super cute Ovio restaurant in which we enjoyed numerous delicious pastries and juices.
I was wearing a gray skirt by &OtherStories which I styled with my favorite top by Manolo which has James Bond embroidered on it in a fun way! Be sure to check out the fun video as well on my social media.

Work it Citrus

My second project with Galleria40 just started. The high end mall is about to finally launch next month in Cairo and I couldn’t be more excited to share this experience with you.
For the first shoot here I was working it citrus colored. I was wearing this gorgeous new MSGM dress with metallic MSGM wedges and my mustard peek-a-boo Fendi bag with matching monster.

La Fille à Papa


Feels good to be back home and have my Dad in town as well. This morning I was heading out to grab a quick Coffee and then to lunch with my dad and family. I was wearing Kate Spade. You are either a Kate Spade kind of person or you’re not! I am all the way.
I have been a bit lazy carrying the camera around lately so I took some snaps today with my phone (so please excuse the quality).

Flower Power

I love wearing anything flowery! I just can’t explain how I fell in love with this gorgeous two piece set by The Egyptian design company Three Fifty Nine. The skirt can be worn with or without the tulle underneath which is a big plus point as you can easily switch the outfit from a night out to a dressy day outfit. Their entire collection is hands on and as a matter of fact all their pieces are.
I paired it with my Marsuma Design clutch “The Green Turban”. A painting by the famous artist Tamara de Lempicka who was the first woman artist to be a glamour star (1898-1980).Two Piece Set: Three Fifty Nine

Here is the third and final outfit Hadia Ghaleb and I styled for ourselves during the shoot at Egypt’s new high-end mall Galleria40.
Everything was provided for us by Ego and Neri Karra.
I styled this gorgeous Dsquared2 dress with Barbara Bui heels, an Atos Lombardini denim vest and an YSL royal blue bag. I’m personally a big fan of everything Atos Lombardini as their designs inspire me. Their pieces are always simple with a small twist and I was very happy to have met the designer in person at their new boutique opening during Milan fashionweek.
Hadia was wearing a Givenchy Skirt also with a Dsquared2 top, Barbara Bui heels and a gorgeous Neri Karra royal blue bag.Venue: Galleria40

Aren’t we all fans of Holly? 🙂
In my eyes Audrey Hepburn had beauty and an aura of innocence and class which is what gained her fans and success.
This outfit is obviously inspired by Holly Golightly. I was wearing the Audrey hand painted clutch by Marsuma Designs. My collection of their customized hand painted clutches and Converse shoes is increasing fast as I’m a huge fan of anything hand crafted. Being unique is key in this world of carbon copies! I mean what’s better than having your own thing painted on a clutch that nobody else will ever have…customizing your bags and shoes is definitely a trend nowadays and I’m enjoying having my own thoughts and ideas painted on what I wear thanks to Marsuma. Sky is the limit. I will not cross the line though and start experimenting on my designer handbags (even though I have considered) 🙂 We have all seen the celebs do it and until today the Hermes Birkin has been the one bag that has seen excessive art projects performed on it and at times it made me feel sorry for it.

Neri Karra

I finally got my hands on one of the top notch Neri Karra bags and I’m loving it.
Neri Karra, an originally Italian global leather products and accessories brand also worn by celebrities is bound to launch soon at no other but Egypt’s Galleria40 mall.
They have wallets and bags ranging from big and small, classics to more modern seasonal designs and I honestly had a hard time choosing as they’re all so pretty and I couldn’t be more excited for their upcoming launch in Cairo.
Here during my second shoot at Galleria40 I was wearing a mustard yellow NK bag which I styled with Barbara Bui kicks and those gorgeous Twinset ripped jeans which have some great pearl embroidery.Venue: Galleria40

I know I have been swamping your newsfeed with my Galleria40 shoots this week. It’s all due to the fact that I am truly excited about this new project.
Galleria40 is going to be Egypt’s first “green building” as well as high-end luxury mall where you can enjoy some glam shopping and dining.
Versace, Ego, Neri Karra are just a few names of the many high end brands and concept stores that are about to launch there.
I was happy to be one of the first lucky visitors and also to be one of the stylists along with Hadia Ghaleb for Ego and Neri Karra while shooting there along side their breathtaking green-wall.
This is the first outfit and it screams Dolce&Gabbana as they always tend to pierce the eye and stand out in any outfit with their gorgeous designs. Hadia Ghaleb and I decided to pair our outfits here. Hope you enjoy it…Venue: Galleria40

I had such a fun time joining in in the painting at the Marsuma Designs studio. Here you can spot their “The Marilyn” clutch which is another piece in marsumas’ SS14 handpainted clutch and Beach bag collection. Originally the Marilyn Diptych created in 1962 is a silkscreen painting by American pop artist Andy Warhol who is one of my favorite artists. His work is phenomenal that I even have mugs at home with his paintings on them. The painting was named the third most influential piece of modern art in a survey of 500 artists and critics. The clutch is made of canvas handpainted with acrylic medium, faux leather and clear PVC which makes it perfectly water resistant as well! 🙂

The Birth of Venus

Marsuma Designs have an endless collection of beautiful hand painted clutches and I was really happy to shoot with the talented artist Nour Omar of Marsuma Designs. Her new line is inspired by the masterpieces of iconic art.
In this shoot I was going for a romantic feminine touch as I was holding  “The Birth of Venus” Clutch. “The Birth of Venus” was painted in 1486 by Sandro Bottocelli. It represents the goddess Venus who had emerged from the sea as an adult woman arriving at the sea-shore. The painting is currently displayed in Florence, Italy.
And Venus was her name! 🙂

Vartan for Zamalek 11211


Finally we have a magazine for our beloved Zamalek Island “Zamalek 11211”. The magazine will be providing in-depth coverage of Zamaleks Issues, events and much more. The best of all is it’s made of wood-free paper! 🙂
Vartan for Zamalek 11211I joined them for a shoot in collaboration with Zamalek’s finest Jewellery store, Vartan. Vartan, an Armenian/Lebanese family run bussiness produces yet the finest gold, diamond and stone Jewellery. I personally only visit Vartan for Jewellery in Cairo and also in Beirut. Their quality and Jewels are top notch.

C&Co

Cairo has plenty of sunglasses stores that carry various international brands. One of the top stores is definitely C&Co which belongs to the Baraka Group which also own yet another great sunglasses store Baraka. They carry everything possible ranging from Chanel, Miu Miu, Prada, Italia Independent to Rayban.
I went for a shoot with some other bloggers in the breathtaking streets of Cairo’s beautiful island Zamalek.
I chose to shoot no other than a pair of Italia Independent and a limited edition pink Miu Miu with Swarovski details.

Hey Blues

 

One foot in the pool and the other out! Hmmmm….what people do to get creative during shoots! My third shoot for Ladybird magazine’s June Issue.
I was wearing this gorgeous dress which I has received from ShopAustique. I love the blue patterns and prints in this design.
I styled it with simple navy blue shoes and a Frillu necklace.
Frillu has become one of Egypt’s top accessory brand. They have it all! Anything you need for anytime of day it’s there and I’m loving all their pieces!

The Infinity Pool

I fell in love with the Sofitel el Gezirah Cairo and their stunning infinity pool. I seriously believe it’s one of the best and definitely most beautiful hotels in Cairo and I was very happy shooting there for Ladybirds June Issue.

This is my third shoot for Ladybirds June Issue. There was not much styling needed to this gorgeous pink beach cover-up Dress by Nillens and Beach Bag by Marsuma Designs. They complement one another and are both made in Egypt. I found some flowers during the shoot and slipped one into my hair, Voila 🙂

I’m loving all the new talented young Egyptian designers. I had already introduced to you the young Egyptian artist Nour Omar (founder of Marsuma Designs) when I was wearing her Marylin Monroe Converse shoes during Milan Fashionweek. Now the artist went one step further and is creating the most adorable bags and beach bags as well! Inspired by Van Gogh and Pop-art Marsuma Designs are 100 percent hand painted and hand made. Be sure to check out the Shoes as well, they’re amazing.

My family was just here visiting from Beirut last week and like any other tourists they were looking for pure Egyptian cotton bed sheets with high thread count. I immediately advised them to visit Nillens. Also founded by yet another young Egyptian designer. I love their designs and products ranging from Beachwear to fluffy gorgeous bed sheets 🙂

By the Pool

Being dressy by the pool is always tricky as you don’t want to look overdressed. Here is my second shoot for Ladybird magazine’s June issue.
In cohabitation with Mango, Suite Blanco and Aldo I paired this plain white blouse with linen shorts and matching wedges. I wanted to create a simple but still chic look. I added some light bijoux to the look like this gorgeous hand chain I received from Ayten Bijoux who is a truly talented young Egyptian Jewelry designer whose work I admire.

The Braid Up

My first shoot for Accessorize featured how one can simply braid their hair up at home especially on a hot summer day.
First I decided to style my hair with a necklace, yes a necklace was inserted within the braid. You simply have a friend or your hairdresser start the braiding process from down going up in a french braid. Once you hit the top of your head if you have long hair like mine you can attach the braid to the side (see pictures for details).
Once the braid was all set on my head I did a second shoot with a head piece placed on the side.

Puffy Me

So, I happened to go to bed at 3am, woke up at 5am and started my first shoot for Ladybird magazine’s June Issue at around 9am. In other words please excuse my frown and puffy eyes in this first shoot 🙂 I loved styling the gorgeous jewelry pieces by Ayten Bijoux. Here I wore her headpiece with some of her X rings.
I chose to style this off-white top with plain white shorts as I wanted the headpiece and rings to stand out in the outfit. I was provided with clothing from Mango, Suite Blanco and Aldo as a collaboration for most of my shoots for this Ladybird Issue.

Why Cleopatra?

When I wore this statement dress by Marie Louis Bishara for the shoot I couldn’t help but think of it resembling Cleopatra. Maybe it’s the Jewelry that goes with it? Then, after going through her pictures I can’t find much in common but still I wanted to call this post the Cleopatra outfit. If anyone had the same thing come to mind please do share your thoughts with me 🙂

In Love

I couldn’t call this post anything other than “In Love” as I’m too in love with this design by Marie Louis Bishara. One of the very first pieces that caught my eye during my first meeting with the designer and I was ecstatic to walk the runway for the opening of her evening dresses during her fashion-show wearing this exquisite dress.

The All White

It’s easy to go all black and always a life saver but going all white is just as easy and elegant! All white to look chic and cute, black to look sexy I believe.
Here is another one of my favorite shoots for the great Egyptian designer Marie Louis Bishara. I was wearing white plain pants with a plain top. Only the jacket had some light sewing pattern with circles which was absolutely stunning. I wore white heels to it and nothing else. The all white look is definitely a classic and can never go wrong 🙂

The Transparency


My second shoot for Marie Louis Bishara featured this stunning transparent top.
I was wearing the black top on a pair of navy blue pants which includes some black stitching. I’m personally very fond of transparent tops and I believe this is a stunning outfit for a business meeting for the woman who had enough of wearing the usual shirts and blazers. This look passes as formal business attire and is extremely attractive when worn with matching heels.

The Fairytale Gown

 

 

This is by far one my favorite evening gowns by Egypt’s top designer Marie Louis Bishara.
The dress is not only simple and elegant but also sparks some fairytale vibes which is what I love about it 🙂 Her entire evening wear collection is as breathtaking. I couldn’t decide which pieces to wear and shoot as they were all so pretty.
Wearing it made me feel special and I can’t wait to wear it again next time at an event 🙂

Dress: Marie Louis Bishara

The Lions


Since the day I started blogging and shooting around the world I’ve been wanting to shoot at one of Egypt’s most beautiful landmarks, the Kasr El Nil bridge with it’s wonderful 
Lion statues.
This shoot is my fourth shoot with Egypt’s streetstyle blog Vichi. It was out collaboration with 69, one of Egypt’s best stores selling various European brands. Photography was conducted by my favorite photographer Abu Samra.

I was very ecstatic when I received my Triangl Bikinis. Triangl (an Australian based swimwear brand) has taken the swimwear fashion industry by storm with their neoprene fabric bikinis. Everyone wants in on the Triangl fun!
Their bikinis range from silver to pink to shiny black to leopard prints. Each piece is seriously amazing and a must have for the summer! Here I wore my Ruby Capricorn bikini for a fun weekend on the Red Sea 🙂

The Old Trees of Zamalek

Zamalek (also known as the Gezira Island) is one of Cairo’s well known Islands for it’s greenery and beautiful trees. The residential island has some very beautiful streets, old buildings, and villas making the Island one of Cairo’s favorite locations for expatriates.
This shoot was taken on a quiet street near the famous Cairo Tower which is one of Africa’s tallest structures and a must visit for tourists in Cairo as you can see a beautiful view of the entire city. Some of the very old beautiful trees of Zamalek can be seen in the pictures.
My third outfit collaboration with Vichi (Egypt’s finest streetstyle blog) and Cairo’s famous Sixtynine (A store who has a branch also in Zamalek with some great stuff) shot by my favorite fashion photographer Abu Samra.
I was wearing this gorgeous silver top that feels like a sweater from the inside (jersey material kind of). Since it’s a bit long I styled it with this black skirt toning the whole silver mood a bit down since it’s a day time outfit I didn’t want it to be too flashy.

The Finale


My final shoot for ladybird magazine featured this gorgeous butterfly print dress by Yumi SS14 which you can find in many department stores as for example Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
I styled it with my denim washed Manebi Espadrilles and a rose hat.
Lately I have been wearing my Manebi espadrilles nearly on a daily basis and I must say they are terrific especially for this warm weather we have in Egypt. Whether I choose to wear the linen or the denim or the suede ones they’re always comfy and above all very pretty!

All about Pastels


Here’s my second shoot for Egypts great store 69 and Egypt’s first and leading Streestyle blog Vichi.
Mixing pastels has always been one of my favorites when it comes to playing dress up. Here I was wearing those perfect gold shimmering pants with a fluorescent print top and a green statement necklace all from 69. The store 69 carries mainly Spanish and Italian brands such as Fornarina for example. Most their items are funky and eye-catching. I believe the talent lies in the buyers 🙂 I have been obsessed with midi rings once again and I was lucky to receive some by Frillu so be sure to check them out here. What’s better than infinity midi rings…heaven!

Gap styld by LoveByN


Visit Gap Egypt stores now and look for the “Love By N” sign to find my styled items and my favorite Gap items! I styled around four outfits for Gap which you can all see here and I truly love their collection as you can find everything you need especially basics and classics. If you like simple comfy casual wear yet chic then this is the place to shop!
The first outfit I decided to crop a denim shirt and tie it above the stomach 😉 The second outfit was the orange dress which I styled with a simple scarf and a hat making it a fresh summer outfit.
The third outfit is actually my favorite I totally loved their denim bomber jacket to which I added the classic Gap cap!
The last outfit was extremely casual but also a favorite of mine I simply put on their striped shirt on top of a plain white tee with washed ripped jeans.

Everything: Gap

Carbon 38


I’m loving everything sold on the carbon38 website their brands are seriously bringing fitness fashion to another level and they ship internationally too yay!
Here I’m wearing the amazing Hydrangea jacket as a wind breaker over the matching top, bra and ink blue pants. I’m not only enjoying the beauty of this outfit but the quality is truly A1 as well 🙂
I did the shoot during my morning workout with my favorite photographer Abu Samra for the Vichi Streetstyle blog in Cairo as this outfit is super cool and will featured as Streetstyle 🙂

The Fifth One


My fifth shoot for Ladybird magazine was all about spring colors. I wore this gorgeous Max&Co top with this pair of lovely two toned Belair jeans.
Be sure to check out the detailed work on the collar along the ear cuff, it’s truly a breathtaking match.
Last but not least I added those gorgeous &other stories heels with my Chanel clutch spiced with some vintage rings.

Red Lips on Zebra

My fourth shoot for ladybird was more about a casual look with a touch of glam which was all about the red lipstick on a total black and white color schemed look with washed boyfriend jeans.
I’m loving the new Isabel Marant Etoile runway collection. Not only because I worship the bows on the shoes but the entire collection is special especially the shoes as usual 🙂
You can have the slippers tied up as far as to the knee which gives them a superb look and if worn with jeans the tie can go all the way down or even be completely removed.

Champagne and Romance

 



Styling my third outfit for my Ladybird magazine shoot I thought it was vital to have a french braid on the back giving a classic romantic look to the outfit.
I wanted this outfit to spark romance which is usually easier when you use white but here I used Champagne tones instead.
The sequin crop top was just the ultimate match with this gorgeous Eleven Paris high waist leather skirt.

I was wearing a plain strapless dress by BCBG with my all time favorite jeans jacket by Claudie Pierlot which you have to check out on the pictures as the batches on the back are superb!

Yes We are the Shit

 

 

Finally I get to show you how I styled my gladiator “Yes We are the Shit”
boots that I received by Sole Struck who have a beautiful collection of YES shoes along with many other brands. I wore them for my first Ladybird magazine shoot with the great photographer Abu Samra which also landed their Cover for the April2014 Issue.
Yes We are the Shit as their name already implies have truly “The Shit”
shoes 🙂 I wore the boots with this printed dress by SeeUSoon which is a french brand that I’m truly admiring lately. If you want to see their pieces online you can find them at one of my favorite online stores Asos.

Lowf Tassel

I must say I literally have been wearing this amazing cardigan by Aya Afify for one week almost daily! It’s truly amazing and fits over anything. The leather sleeves give it a very cool look and it’s extremely comfortable and the perfect replacement for a spring jacket.Today’s outfit is simple with a twist. I loved adding some detail by wearing my Roberta Biagi studded jeans to my Lowf Tassel shoes by YRU. Don’t they look gorgeous together? I enjoyed this outfit very much today as it was very comfortable with eye catching details.

Spring it on

It’s February but it feels like Spring has already arrived here in Cairo. Today I was wearing this gorgeous faux fur jacket and I was feeling pretty hot even though I only had this Playboy Tee on underneath.
Lots of Italian designs in my outfit today! The jacket is by Sisley who are one of my favorite Italian brands, the Espadrilles by Manebi and the tee I bought in my fav boutique in Rome who only sells exquisite one of a kind pieces 🙂

Daniel Wellington

Daniel Wellington watches are one of the best selling watches these days and I can clearly see why. They are for to be worn at any occasion. I am loving mine with the pink and blue strap. It makes any outfit look fresh.
Today I was headed for lunch and since the weather was nice and warm I wore my washed blue Manebi espadrilles with those amazing ripped jeans by Hidden which you can find at Lulus.

The Qloud

I’m loving my Qlouds by Yru! They’re extremely funky and believe it or not very comfortable as well. I actually walked a lot with them today and I could have gone on all day without any complaints even though they don’t look it 🙂
I wore them with one of my favorite jackets I had bought from one of the most amazing boutiques I discovered last time in Rome.
The top underneath is by a Lebanese designer and all hand painted with butterflies and sewn with beads. It’s one of those “love at first sight” tops I came across last time in Beirut.

The Designs by Aya Afify

I’m loving the new emerging Egyptian fashion designers. I was truly amazed by the high quality and fabrics of the Aya Afifys designs.
Aya Afify, a young talented Egyptian released her first collection in the summer of 2013. Her designs are characterised by the quality of fabric she uses, solid colours and reserved simplicity. Aya afify believes that to be a successful designer one must always be on the look for what’s new, talent itself is not enough. She studied design at the Italian fashion academy in Cairo, Egypt. She also attended a one month job shadowing internship at Maxmara in Italy.
I fell in love with so many pieces of her new collection and it gave me a hard time choosing as I wanted it all 🙂
This gorgeous Cape I wore today is extremely stylish. The great thing is that her designs are reserved but at the same time super stylish which ads a good factor to traditional conservative appearance.
I decided to wear it to a small gathering which took place again at the famous Mit Rehan House in Cairo. Being in private events gives me the privilege to go a bit more bare in Cairo. I wore my own designed boots I had designed in Beirut along my orange Birkin.

Mit Rehan

Today I was lucky to be invited for a Barbecue at the beautiful Mit Rehan house which is a neo-traditional house in Cairo, Egypt. The house was built by the famous architect Hassan Fathy and completed in 1981. Mit Rehan is owned by the Kazerouni family and is one of the most stunning houses of the architect Hassan Fathy. The house is in the countryside on the Sakkara Road in Giza.
The beauty and design inside is never ending and I can’t wait to show you more of this house in my upcoming shoots. Starting from the bathrooms to the Hallways every space inside this house is special and beautiful. I was also quite amazed by how cool it is indoors which is how Fathy used to build houses to keep people cool from the outside heat. Fathy’s outstanding concept uses traditional materials and forms.
The Kazerouni house is called “Mit Rehan” meaning “the way of the basil”. The architect had a good ability for dealing with and exhibiting traditional Egyptian vocabularies and items such as mashrabiyyahs for example (wooden lattice work). I have included links underneath to those of you who wish to read further about Mit Rehan.

The Classics

Finally I get to share with you my all time favorite coat. This coat by Elisabetta Franchi has the ultimate style for anytime of day. Sometimes I wear it evenings over a dress and sometimes mornings with a pair of jeans for a more laid back look as I did here. This coat will always remain a classic and it was worth every penny.
I personally love investing in classics more than seasonals when it comes to fashion. I like pieces that last and that’s probably why I always go for classic bags like Hermes, Chanel and here you can see my classic limited edition Lady Dior.
I paired everything with my Roberta Biaggi ripped jeans and cut-out Balenciaga booties. The top by Alexa Pope added the perfect flair to the outfit. Hope you guys like it:)

How gorgeous are those Kelsi Dagger heels I received by Heels.com? Seriously their collection of shoes is outstanding, imagine or wish for a shoe and look no further!
When something is funky it means it’s different from the ordinary in a way that causes curiosity or suspicion. I realized this jacket is extremely funky when I found random people inquiring about it last weekend.

That Classy Glitz

Heading out for early cocktails with friends I thought I should finally wear my Elisabetta Franchi feather jeans with my Bluchers fringe shoes. Adding even more glitz like this sequin blazer was necessary. As I mentioned before mixing tones of rose with gray will always give a calm effect no matter how much glitz and shine you decide to add I assure you those two colors combined won’t go out of line. They also give a classy and feminine effect which is what I love most about them.

Today I ended up getting so much compliments on this outfit as it was a real eye-catcher among the small crowd.

Yeehaw

Today I wore my tied-up Alexander McQueen jeans I had found in Trois Pommes whilst in Zurich with this gorgeous Dsquared2 leather jacket from Bon Genie Zurich. Truly two of my favorite shops on earth. I wore them with my new hand-tooled camel leather bag by Vania and David, a bag to die for with beautiful engraving. To add some spice to any outfit be sure to get your hands on a Delfina Delettrez single ear earring like my red Lips here. I love my Lips, do you?

Last but not least the gorgeous brogue shoes by Not Rated and my “Shit Fucking Happens” tee by Silver Spoon Attire which you can also find in Browns London.

Finally I got to wear my Gorilla Head buckle by Badichi Belts along those perfect vintage ripped Alexa Pope boyfriend jeans! This Gorilla Head buckle belt is just one of thousands of gorgeous buckles and belts one can choose and customize on the Badichi Belts website and not only that, they ship worldwide as well!

I love wearing cropped tees during winter even if it’s cold outside cropped tees look awesome under cozy jackets allowing a sexy vibe to slip in between those cold boring winter days. So instead of layering a thousand layers one might as well stay warm with just one thermal cropped tee 🙂

The Sole Society

You all know how I admire new upcoming emerging fashion designers! Today I’m dressed from head to toe in emerging designers! Those gorgeous boots, the outstanding hat and the orange bag as well are all pieces by the perfect online shop Sole Society where you can find everything fashionable and cute, it took me forever to choose 🙂 Meet Ana Karolina, a Mexican jewelry brand, designed by 21-year-old Ana Carolina. The designer, Ana Carolina, started designing at age 16, securing a deal with Nordstrom at 17 and most recently at Nordstrom-owned Treasure&Bond in New York City. I received two breathtaking pieces by her and here you can enjoy seeing one on my neck, what a statement!

This dress is by UK talented designer Minkie, be sure to check out her designs too! 🙂

Matchy-Matchy

Here is a matchy-matchy outfit I adore 🙂 I am totally loving this mini dress by Motel Rocks and the fact that I received it around the same time as my Yogy red lips necklace gave me no excuse but to pair them up! It’s always good to go matchy-matchy when you are heading out for dinner on a short notice! I only had five minutes to get dressed, seriously (therefore the bun!) 🙂

I Heart It

Today was a day full of surprises between family gatherings and lunch I barely had enough time to shoot this lovely outfit to which I was receiving many compliments! Pairing these gorgeous printed leggings by Threads for Thought was fairly easy as they truly make any outfit stand out (and keep you warm). I just had to add a plain black pullover and voila!
I nearly always prefer rose-gold over other color tones when it comes to gold hardware as sometimes gold tones are too strong and shiny. You can see the rose-gold hardware on my Pierre Satchel by Hayden Harnett which is what I admire most about this beautiful bag which makes it a real eye-catcher!

How do you love this gorgeous bag by Kooba? Must be a best-seller! Little Nina detaches and can be worn as a cross bag on it’s own, how convenient is that 🙂 My earrings by Artelier are my current favorites as I love skulls, always adding a funky touch!

WTF

A chilled out day requires a chilled out outfit. I can’t deny I’m in love with pajama pants in general as I’m usually always enjoying them when I’m on the go. Early mornings when I jump out of bed in a rush nothing beats a pair of comfy pajama pants and a “WTF” sweater to hit the streets!

THE HOGS

Riding the Harley by the Sahara with my love is always ecstatic but felt even better when I had the famous Lauren Moshi Cig Lip Vintage Tee on! Don’t you just LOVE this print? The HOGS (Harley Owners Group) truly enjoy not just their bikes but also their style while riding. Here I added my Naughty Monkey Booties to this beautiful ride. Being a HOG requires quite some style! Ranging from cool rider jackets to rider boots…this is the root of the fashion famous term “Rider”, quite a fashion world of it’s own 🙂

I love mixing grey with rose tones as the outcome of those two colors mixed is always feminine and beautiful. When I received this beautiful dress by ThreeFiftyNine (who by the way have some amazing pieces) I immediately spiced it up with my mouse flats by Christa Garden who has a beautiful store in St.Tropez. The cute white rabbit ring is one of my favorite designs by AZooShop.

The Rainbow

Luckily I received the Rainbow shoe in gold by Wear Floggs along with this beautiful Sunita Mukhi golden eye clutch which opens up and turns into a shopping bag as well, who doesn’t love versatility? Pairing shoes with bags is not a necessity in dressing up but will always leave a neat impression. After spending an evening in my Floggs i can tell you to rest assured you can dance the night away in those heels as their foam sole is one hell of an invention! I decided to complete the outfit with this beautiful dress i got off a local Malaysian boutique and a stunning Runway collection windbreaker jacket by BCBG Max Azria.

Flattering Silk

They say patience is a virtue and especially when it comes to picking up pieces like this beautiful and flattering silk dress midst a crowded mall with over ten floors then yes, patience does payback 🙂 Midst the busy mall in Kuala Lumpur I was lucky to stumble upon this piece which I so truly adore! Here I styled it up to attend an afternoon wedding reception but it can equally be worn to a more casual event or dinner party.

The Pareo

As women we have the privilege to simply wrap a pareo around our body and make it look good. There are thousands of ways to wrap pareos but this is my all time favorite style as it always gives an elegant vibe no matter what color it is or where you wear it especially on a hot summer day!

The Red Phinda

Striking furry bags and the classic plaid print are trends one should have their eye on this season! While strolling my babies down for a walk I wore the beautiful red Phinda bag I received by Okamia made of natural springbok skin. This is by far one of the softest to the touch pieces I’ve come across and as you know I’m quite the bag collector! The Phinda sparks off extremely high quality and beauty! My plaid skirt with black leather belts on the sides by Kira Plastinina adds a comfortable but hip vibe to the look.

I’m an animal lover and I enjoy spending time with animals in every way possible so don’t be surprised if you find me posting future outfits from zoos around the world as it’s my usual hiding place and hangout.

Anything even an outfit like this one standing next to an animal will appear more alluring as each of gods creations sparks majestic beauty to the human eye.

The Lizard King

When I received my kaleidoscope crystal vision glasses i knew right away those have to be styled up with my Jim Morrison tee and my favorite Frankie B. Jeans. To me Jim Morrison invented some styles not only music! The tight leather pants he wore which ever since have been associated with Rock stars. His Chelsea boots mixed with his Bohemian shirts always gave an elegant feel.

He once quoted “Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts” and it’s one of my favorite quotes as I personally have had bad experiences in the field which led me to barely cutting my hair now.

Black and Gold

Today, I decided to go “Black and Gold” from head to toe. The top is orange and shines a hint of gold. My Mnologie clutch with “Belongs to LovebyN” engraved on it is the prettiest personalized item I have seen in the fashion industry. One can use it with or without the small pouch inside, and even wear the pouch by itself at times. I added one of my favorite Vanessa Mooney necklaces which can be worn at any time of day, and will never fail to make a statement. And last but not least, I was wearing the two cutest rings made with love and beads by Wish.

El Alamein

I can’t help but share with you what El Alamein actually means and the history behind this beautiful and hidden place on earth mainly familiar to Egyptians who enjoy their summer vacations here. El Alamein not only has beautiful beaches but also loads of untouched Sahara land.

Two important World War II battles were fought in the area. Nearly every monument and landmark within El Alamein environs is dedicated to this event and the soldiers who gave their lives here. There are separate memorials for the soldiers from each of the countries who fought on this battlefield.

Le Petit Jardin

I’m very fond of Hayden Harnett’s handbag designs and one of my favourites is their Trophy Satchel. It’s rare to find a handbag so pretty and yet so spacious. Since I’ve been sunbathing I decided to sparkle my tan by wearing a Pearl necklace by the talented designer Oksana Belo. Last but not least a colorful striking dress like no other, my Hale Bob dress.

While spending a weekend by the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt’s North Coast, I paid a visit to some wild Camels. The camels were being nurtured by a Bedouin in midst of the Sahara Desert.

The Nile Cruise

Ever since I was a child I’ve always enjoyed speed boat cruises and especially island hopping. It’s magical how relaxing cruising the Cairo Nile can be. Today i enjoyed being isolated from the city’s noisy streets by viewing it’s lovely landmarks and some fantastic scenery by boat. I was wearing an entire outfit by Maison Scotch. A beautiful beaded pajama pant with it’s matching vest to which I wore one of my favorite Indian necklaces. Namaste!

Shades of Jade

As the daughter and granddaughter of jewellery designers, I grew up collecting, learning and reading about different stones and their energies. This post is about one of my favorite stones Jade. Jade is believed to have healing energies, warmth, as well as protection of loving heart energy. In China a carved Jade Butterfly represents a successful love. In feng shui Jade is used for giving a feeling of balance and harmony. Today, I was wearing one of my grandmothers vintage designs made out of carved Jade leaves 🙂

Agua Bendita

Hello 🙂 I’m in Cairo at the moment and I tell you the weather is hot reaching 40 degrees celsius and more. Today was a relaxing day by the pool with friends at home. I wore Agua Bendita which is one of my favorite swimwear brands from Colombia. The word bendita means “blessed”. Some of the garment work beaded on the Bikini is hand-made. It has cute little details. Yes I feel blessed 🙂

Khan El Khalili

All women in my family are jewellery designers starting from my mom, my grandma and me…as a child i grew up between Zurich, Cairo and Khartoum designing my own lines of jewellery made with plastic beads displaying them in my moms exhibitions. Khan El Khalili has always been one of my favorite spots to visit with my mother whenever in Cairo…today i still know many local shop owners as well as all the tight alleys by heart. Khan El khalili is one of the most beautiful markets in the world with a charm like no other… Since the Egyptian revolution in 2011 most local shop owners no longer afford the rent and only visit their stores three days a week which is truly sad. Walking trough all the dusty alleys i wore comfortable pants by Kitschen which i just bought from Kuala Lumpur. A lovely brand with a good slogan “kitschen baked with love”.
The top is one of a thousand beautiful tops you can find at the local Phuket weekend market for nothing…

Durch meine Grossmutter und Mutter entdeckte ich meine Liebe zum Schmuck, denn beide sind talentierte und leidenschaftliche Schmuckdesigner. Ihr Inspiration verleitete mich dazu, meine eigenen Kreationen in den Familienexhibitionen auszustellen.
Der einzigartige Bazar von Cairo “Khan el Kahlili” war schon seit meiner Kindheit einer meiner Lieblingsplätze. Mit seinen vielen engen Passagen, unendlichen Farben und einzigartigen herben Düfte ist es immer noch mein Ort zum Steine, Ketten und Accessoires einzukaufen. Seit der Ägyptischen Revolution in 2011 sind die Gassen und Geschäfte leider nicht mehr so viel besucht.Während meinem Ausflug dorthin trage ich bequeme Hosen by Kitschen aus Kuala Lumpur. Mir gefällt der Slogen von Kitschen:”Kitschen baked with love”. Der Top ist einer von vielen wunderschönen
Oberteile, die man auf dem Wochenend-Markt in Phuket finden kann.
