Being the quiet, shy, mousey sort of girl that I can sometimes be I tend to stay as FAR away from bright yellow as I can!
Neon pink, purple, green & even orange I can stomach but all-out yellow makes me shiver with fright. I envy those who can pull it off whilst looking cool, confident & suave.
Theoretically speaking – since I have dark hair & oliveish skin, yellow should look fantastic on me and so whats to fear? there’s just something about it which screams HI LOOK AT ME and makes me run a mile…however…whilst flicking through an arabic magazine I came across this beautiful outfit – j’adore – minus the earrings (hideous) but the dress oo la laa!
Dress from Blumarine
Granted, it’s not entirely yellow and the cynic in you will be screaming WOMAN can’t you see its black? but the splash of yellow is vibrant enough for me! I also love the contrasting lilac shadow – that’s not a combination I would have immediately thought of.
Surely you’ve been wondering where I’ve been? Eaten by a wild bear, fallen off the edge of the earth or just disappeared..bet you missed my random quirky posts…god knows I missed writing them 😦 but I was absolutely swamped in revision. Had my first exam…one down, three to go…
Today i’ve got a little something different for you. Yep thats right, to apologise for my absence I’m sharing an awesome make up video!Yes Make up, the secret arsenal of every intelligent woman…
Forget Bassam Fatouh & Hala Ajam…there’s a new face in town, and her name’s Hannan alNajjadah!
If we thought H&M struck gold with the Marni Collaboration then Anna Del Russos’ in an entirely different league..
I did try to contain myself, to stop myself from jumping on the bandwagon, of being swept up in the inherent wave of thrilled bloggers all singing praise of Anna Del Russo & her collaboration with H&M…but what’s a girl to do?
When faced with the tantalising prospect of owning such glam accessories, one just has to succumb – for writing is all you can do to let out steam – to quell the ignited fire.
This golden Alice-In-Wonderland collaboration will include evening clutches, jewellery, shoes and a supposed trolley (travel suitcase in british lay-man terms).
Here’s the sneak peak pic that showcases some of the items to be..gold, gold & more gold..yay!
My absolute favourite is the Fayrouz (turqoise) bag (I mean the gold one on left with turk stone) it reeks of versace, wealth and societies elite…How lush would it look paired with a jet black abaya & the almost-but-not-quite overdone YSL arty ring?
I apologise profusely for the picture spam you have been receiving.
