Jac Jagaciak by Hans Feurer for Vogue Japan

This editorial wants me to have something to rush for, and look fabulous while doing so.
I can't really put a finger on the style.. Is it preppy, posh, 50's vintage, or maybe somehow hippie-ish with all that flower power, I don't know, but whatever it is, I Love It!
Thanks to this, I'm gonna go play dress up now. Au revoir.

Empire of the Sun

If you haven't heard of them, they're an Australian band/duo.. That's all I know to be honest, Google them
Moving on
Their voices are very unusual and weird, and that's what makes them so unique aside from their clothes and music videos.
You should totally check them out!

Here are two of my favorite songs, Walking on a Dream and We are the People (I'll post the remix though, I like it more)

Wardrobe Update

Terribly sorry for being M.I.A this past week, I've been busy doing lots of stuff, from attending my little brother's soccer game to school work and having brunch with my mother and cousin & talk about college.
Even though I've had a busy week, I squeezed some time for shopping, of course!

Here are some of the garments I bought, the rest will be posted soon (Promise ;D)

I love the masculinity and simplicity in this blazer, it feels as if it was from the 90's, which I'm crazy about!

This dress is perfect for the summer. I just love the details that are in the dress, for example the buttons, the belt's buckle, the little pockets.. Everything!

This skirt can be worn in any season, you can pair it with a white tank top and it's good for the summer, or with a button up shirt and you're ready for the fall.
 The draping is beautiful, and the color is easy to match other colors with.

Words can not describe my love for shoes! I love shoes!
This bubblegum smelling shoe is now one of my favorite's! The design is extraordinary and so is the color.
I felt like a Barbie when I first wore it :'')

The Middle East

No, not the region, but the band.
I love this song, I "discovered" it from Crazy Stupid Love, which is a cute and funny movie by the way.
So feast your ears with the sweet melody.

Oh and I love the art in the cover, so beautiful.

Ulyana Sergeenko

I've been putting my eyes on Ulyana lately, I just love how she pulls an outfit together. She's a Russian photographer, stylist, designer and sometimes a model.
Her style is so feminine and lady like, yet bold and daring.
She loves to go back to her roots by wearing Russian-doll like clothes such as floral prints, maxi skirts, hats and head scarves. And she also loves to mix colors and patterns, and wear statement pieces.
I love how she sometimes pairs pretty dresses with risky boots, it's unexpected and surprising.
You should check out her newest collection, it's divine.

Kendra Spears by Mariano Vivanco for Vogue Russia

Kendra Spears is one of my favorite models, she's extremely gorgeous and has the girl next door yet the sophisticated woman kind of look, which I adore.
Here, even though Kendra is wearing men inspired garments; she looks incredibly feminine and beautiful. I love every detail about this editorial, from her big wavy hair & nude oval shaped nails to her pointy toe pumps & awkward poses. The photography and styling is splendid.
And here is the full editorial, enjoy..

Let's hope this kind of style is still in fashion in the future, 'cause that's how I would like to dress when I'm in my mid 20's.

Not a rookie blogger

I have always admired blogging, I've had several other blogs but I always tend to abandon them and eventually start a new one, hopefully this is my last non-ditched blog.
So to start off, I'll introduce myself!
I'm just your ordinary 17 year old girl, that lives in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and is an aspiring architect, obsessed with shoes, a bit of an exaggerator, constantly learning new things, and finally.. Loves fashion!

Hope you enjoy my upcoming posts..
