Black, white & leopard

So I bought this dress about a year ago and still never wore it until today (like I do...). When I saw it in the store on the hanger I was like "hmm..." but when I tried it on it was perfect. I adore backless everything, specially really simple and chic attires with an open back, I feel it's such an elegant yet effortless look. I decided to pair it with a brown and gold belt and leopard pumps to break it up a little but without diverting the attention to anything else but the dress, hence the black clutch. I definitely would've preferred the back shot without the faded bikini tan line, but oh well.

Hope you all have a great weekend

I love the beginning of Autumn, the smell of rain, the "ooh-it's -getting -chilly" feeling you can just throw on a jacket. Personally Autumn/Winter seasons are my favourite, I feel I can dress up much better, with a cool jacket, boots, scarf etc. I love the whole layering, which is  a little hard to do in summer when it's over 35ºC. 


Eid - Kaftan

Happy Eid everyone! After a lovely afternoon with the family and couscous lunch I decided to go take some shots of this kaftan I bought in Morocco a few months ago. Kaftan shops in Morocco are amazing, I could stay in there for hours going through all the different styles, the different materials and patterns. The nicest part was watching this old man sitting in a corner on a tiny wooden chair hand-making these enormous yet so gorgeous belts, I just felt like sitting on the floor next to him and observe his art. The detailing of these dresses is stunning, it's like every single stitch is made with love. 


Leather + Denim

Leather + denim: total obsession. It's just so wrong that it's so right. Leather used to directly remind me of winter  when it came to clothes, but not anymore. I love how it can be matched with pretty much everything and bring a lighter feel to it by pairing it with something simple and casual such as denim. The mix of leather which is sort of edgy and heavy combined with cotton, denim or even something as delicate as silk or lace is exquisite.

So Iv'e had these Zara heels for a year now and  I've still never worn them until today (I tend to do that). It was kind of a love/hate relationship, I was never really sure about them but I've come to the conclusion that I do indeed love them and  they are now making their way up to the top of my list. I've never really been into frills and tassels when it comes to shoes in general but these work for me for some reason.

I love how it's end of August and the evenings are getting a teeny weeny bit chillier... and by chillier I mean an excuse enough to start wearing blazers again.
