My valentine February 14, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — shabbychicfashion @ 8:28 am

Sooo today is V day and I am one of the lucky ones to be spending it with my special man, my gorgeous husband. I, being new to Kuwait and “currently unemployed” was home this morning while he works; I got a call from him at 9:15am telling me I need to be ready in 20 so I rushed did my hair threw on the first thing I found slapped on some make up and rushed out the door. I pressed the elevator button and remembered my coat inside so I rushed in grabbed it and waited for the elevator door to open up and when it did my hubby was standing there with a huge bunch of pink roses (my fav) I almost had a heart attack! So we went out to breakfast (amazing view on the beach) and then came back home. That’s it for now but I will keep you updated on the rest of the day!

Happy v day for those celebrating it with your special partner or with great friends and family!

Ok so I had a thing to do at 8 till 9, on the way home my hubby called and said to hurry up coz we had to go for dinner so when I unlocked the door, I walked in to dim lights and candles everywhere around our apartment with romantic music playing in the background it was amazing. He had ordered Italian food from one of my fav Italian restaurants and we sat down to a candlelit dinner then danced a bit, had some dessert danced a bit more exchanged gifts and just had a sensational evening with my man.

I hope you all had a wonderful valentines day also!

 

I’m back! February 10, 2011

Hi all!

I apologise for being MIA I’ve been away (back home) in Australia and was wayyy too busy to blog, (with two nieces under two my babysitting responsibilities were put to full use)! So today I must just take a minute and talk about the situation in Egypt. As an arab, I feel so proud and so happy seeing fellow arabs fighting for democracy which is so amazing; I truly which I could be there fighting along side them for something that arabs and everybody around the world always seeks, and that is a better way of life. Bless you all and keep on fighting.

I have sooo many fashion finds and other things I have seen I want to talk about but it’s late now and I am kind of glued to CNN, so stay posted I will be back full throttle!! Till then, have a good night and stay safe!

 

The blazer; An essential key piece November 24, 2010

Blazers are everywhere!

I really adore the gorgeous boyfriend blazer we’re seeing so mush of lately. Finally, there is a key piece that every fashion forward woman can use on pretty much any outfit, it’s really important to match your blazer to your outfit and to the season too. Remember, blazers are no longer restrcited to the office, in fcat, they can be added on to just about any outfit! For instance, if you’re planning a lunch with some girfriends on a gorgeous summer day, why not go ahead and wear your most fflattering pair of washed out denim uber-shorts (to the knee), a white satin flowy top and a snazzy yellow satin blazer on top with either heels or flats. You will instantly look up to date with literally ONE piece! Finally!

Blazers can be worn in just about anyway and at any occasion. I love how

Kerr rockin the blazer

Miranda Kerr matches her blazer with an evening dress, even though I wouldn’t do it because I love evening dresses to be the centre of attention but still I completely dig her look.

Now, my absaloute favourite look is the denim/blazer mesh up! Unfortuentley, I am yet to find the perfect blazer to suit me and I can’t find any in Kuwait (so if any of you have any suggestions, please share!). Anyway, I really love a pair of skinny jeans, a casual, white t shirt, and basically any colour blazer you feel like wearimg, I think it just depends on the accessories, you know, bags, necklaces etc. If it’s summer, try opting for a light fabric and color with fresh accessories (go to Forever 21) they have some gorgeous vibrantly coloured necklaces amoungest other things.

Anyway, if you’re scared to take a chance on this fashion piece, just remember it’s pretty hard to get it wrong with this key piece, just remember not to overdo it with the colours and the style, but this is something we should keep in mind when it comes to anything to do with fashion. Since the blazer is the key statement, remember to keep everything else minimal and I assure you, you will be rockin’ this style for a long time, enjoy;)
