Shopping Bag: Tip Top

leave a comment »

For my second edition of my shopping bag, I decided to pick two tops perfect for fall.  They are two completely polar items but I like placing diversity and opposition hand in hand. 

I picture the Elizabeth and James printed blouse tucked in a cream trouser for a Margaux Hemingway look paired with a loose up-do, tan booties and the Fendi’s tan Classico bag.  Oh what a wonderful world! 

The Topshop knitted cropped sweater is fabulous for layering, a key fall dressing technique.  Layering is a great way to keep warm and add personality to your outfit.  Imagine a light grey long-sleeved tee, camel leggings, brown riding boots, a camel scarf, and a light grey large YSL Muse Two bag.  As Rachel Zoe would say, mah-jor!

My Style: The Definition of Me

with one comment

If you know me well, you know that this look can’t get any more Nadine.  I always play with trends and mix up my look and yet you’ll always see me go back to my original simple tailored look.  Are you thinking, what is there to this look?  My answer to you would be, some of the most stylish people we know, have the simplest looks ever. Examples include Carolina Herrera known for her never-changing white shirt matched with a black skirt, Tonne Goodman, Vogue’s Fashion Director, known for her classic american style and Karl Lagerfeld known for his black suit, white shirt, white pulled back ponytail and black sunglasses.  

I don’t mean to compare myself with these fashion icons, but I want to share with you a lesson that I have learnt throughout the years.  It is always fun to play around, but once you stick to what looks best on you, you’ll exude confidence, comfort and most importantly style.

Fab Building in West el Balad

While in West el Balad, downtown, recently visiting  jewelers in Cairo, Egypt, I came across this wonderful building which made me wish I was invited for a party there, a la Gossip Girl.  I can picture wearing a fabulous cocktail outfit which screams spring trends, maybe add a fun hair accessory.  Spring runways were covered with fabulous peaches and creams, power pastels and below are my favorite spring pastel items I could possible wear to a party!
