Shades of Blush

Hello Ladies
I hope all of you had a wonderful week and now ready to enjoy the weekend! I literally only have 10 mins until 12am here, my laptop was NOT cooperating with me so I kept editing and losing my posts 😦 Please excuse this short little F.F.F, I am literally racing with time haha.
This F.F.F. is a little different, because it is L’NOOR design (yay!) I love this fabric pieces, only because it is black AND it has different shades of blush mixed into it. How beautiful?
If you ladies are interested in this design feel free to either email me or comment below! I also have a VERY exciting post I have been working on which will be posted in a day or two, I just need to finish editing some photos and it’ll be up ❤
Much love

Fashion Finds: 

Long Floral Knit Cardigan- L’Noor. This was a customized design I had made for a customer, and decided to make one for myself! I mean you can never get enough of long cardigans and that being floral.

White Cami- Forever 21. Original price $1.90. I think thats that.

Collar Choker Necklace- TopShop. Original price $48. On sale for $2. I mean do I really need to express how AMAZING this find was?!

High waisted Boyfriend Jeans- Papaya. Original price $24.99 on sale for $10. I have shared this before on my F.F.F. it looked nice with this look so I paired it up.

Tea Pink Wood Heel Lace up Ankle Boots- Charlotte Russe. Original price $38.99, on sale for $9.99. These shoes are SO comfortable, and so adorable.

Floral Kimono

Thank God It’s Friday! 

How are all of my lovely ladies doing? I hope all of you are enjoying this gorgeous weather we have been having ❤ Todays post I just want to share something a little personal, or should I say advice. This is a reply to emails I have been receiving from many of you across the globe, so thank you for giving time to read my posts and acknowledge them really means a lot ❤

Ladies, you do not have to purchase high-end brands to look or feel good. I always get stopped and asked “what brand?” “who makes that?” and my replies are “Ross…Burlington..H&M…” and they look at me like “whaaaa?!” Its honestly all about how YOU put an outfit together, and that makes it a STYLE. Style is something personal, that shows who YOU are, and YOU’RE starting a trend not following one. I mean hey, theres nothing wrong with purchasing designer brands, we all love it. I never believed in being a “follower”, I love being my own person. Some people will not like that, but hey thats the difference between me and them. Be you. Be unique. But also, shop smart, one of my MAJOR advices to all of my followers. Whether is $2 or $2000, it all depends on how you style it ❤

Fashion Finds

Kimono- H&M. Original price $34.99 on sale for $5. There is one thing I absolutely dislike when it comes to warm wearer, layering (hijabi problems). I try to avoid any under layer with full sleeves (because everything is either see-through during the summer) its just too much for me to handle and I have found a solution…KIMONOS. If the fabric is breathable, long sleeved, then all you need is a light cam underneath. You can enjoy a nice breeze from your Kimono sleeves. I have done 2 posts with Kimonos as well, but those are VERY light weight and adding a under layer is totally bare able.

Black tights with gold high-zips- ROSS. Original price $3.99. And guess what? I bought 2 pairs because why the HECK not?! These tights are SO comfortable, and they are high waisted. The zippers on the sides of your legs can be opened up all the way (which is a no no) or you can zip them open like how I have demonstrated. Plus, anything black and gold its my weakness (pretty obvious huh?)

Gold Spiked Beaded Choker Necklace- Forever 21. Orignal price $9.99.

Black & Gold Clutch- Forever 21. Original price $24.99 on sale for $4.99. This clutch is SO spacious (especially for someone like myself, because I have to carry everything with me). It can be used both as a hand clutch or over the shoulder bag.

Black shiny pointed flats- Charlotte Russe. Orignal price $34.99 on sale for $5.99. When I say CR shoes are comfortable they are VERY comfortable. Almost all of my F.F.F. posts have a CR shoe. So if you do not own a pair…I say you get one now!

Say What?!

TGIF!

Happy Friday mi amores! How are all of my ladies doing today? Hoping all of you are in good health Inshallah (God Willing). From the looks of it…I think we might be finally getting into Spring weather ❤ I have SOOOO much to share with you all in the next few posts…so stay tuned 🙂

This new F.F.F. post is going to be styled a bit different, I personally like it and hope you ladies will too! I added a bit of an Eastern touch, which is also my design inspiration. This is a very street chic look, which is always my fav combination! Lets not waste anymore time, here you are ladies!

Fashion Finds

White Collar Button Down Shirt- H&M. Original price $34.99 on sale for $7. Okay, I know I have emphasized this a lot that I do NOT wear white…but with this look I couldn’t pair it with anything better. There. I said it.

High waisted Boyfriend Jeans- Papaya. Original price $24.99 on sale for $10. I have been searching for the perfect fit, for a while now. And I finally found them! Absolutely comfortable! Out of allllll the places.

Say What Flats- Call it Spring. Original price $34.99 on sale for $17. The only reason I bought these shoes was obviously because of the “Say What”. Other than that, they are not comfortable to wear (being totally honest ladies).

Hand-beaded bangles- Gifted from Pakistan. I absolutely LOVE these handmade bangles, this is something I stylized the outfit with to pop some color.

Overly exaggerated Black circle earrings- Designed and made by moi.

Well, what did you ladies think? If you ladies are interested on how I made the earrings, I can teach you how to make them! Just comment below. Enjoy your weekend, until next time.

Much Love

Coral & Lace

Hello Hello!

I don’t know if I should say “Happy Spring” or not because this weather is totally out of its control! We have had amazing, Spring days and then it goes right back into Winter…weird? I think so. But hey! I am not complaining at all ❤ The first day of Spring here…it was about less than 30 degrees, ahaha see my point?

But this weather won’t stop me from wearing nice Spring outfits, or atleast I have been trying to… 😦 So I had a huge issue of not finding my USB cord for my Canon (that’s what I am uploading this F.F.F late). And my laptop is a “vintage” MacBook… so it does not have that USB insert on the side like all you high-tech peeps :-/

So I had to use my sisters laptop, email ALL these pictures to myself, edit them and oh let’s not forget my crazy work schedule… now I am finally posting a week later…how exciting? Hey, better late than never right? The things I do for you all ❤

This is a very Spring inspire look, Coral and Lace will never go out of style (especially lace) I think this look is a very elegant combination. I hope you ladies find it the same as well ❤

Here is this (last weeks) F.F.F.

Fashion Finds:

Coral Flared Dress- ROSS. Original price $9.99. What can get better than that?

Lace Vest- ROSS. Original price $11.99. I love lace, I cannot express how much I do. So lets leave it at that. I get so many compliments wearing this light-weight vest, its that final “touch” to your outfit!

Lace Point Flats- Charlotte Russe. Orignal price $24.99, on sale for $5. So this AMAZING deal was buy one for 5$ and the other will be for $2.50. I bought this pair and a coral pair as well. VERY comfortable.

Pearl-Ring-Cuff- Nordstrom BP, orignal price $15 on sale for $3.

Pearl Necklace- Forever 21. Orignal price $24.80 on sale for $3. Again, another piece I get many compliments on.

Stud/Pearl Earring- A set from Charlotte Russe for $5.

Clear White and Gold Cross Body- ZARA. Original price $50.00 on sale for $19. This was love at first site ladies…pure love.

Mint Green & Polka-Dots

Happy Friday 
I know, I know… this post is a bit late. But there are still 15 minutes left until Friday is over! I am going to keep this short and sweet ❤ I have been receiving emails/messages about “business attire with the Hijab” aka scarf for work and interviews.
Many of you have been asking for styling tips such as Hijab (scarf) tips and  jewelry on how to balance the entire “business” look. I will be doing another post for a “business” attire look with the Hijab. In which I will list the “do’s” and “don’ts” in my point of view.
Here is something I bought recently for work, and thought this is good for a chic business attire. I kept this look very simple, due to the colors and the polka-dot printed pants.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Nelo .A.
Fashion Finds:
Mint Green Blazer: Charlotte Russe. Original price $34.99 on sale for $9.99. This is a very light weight cotton fabric blazer which is amazing for the hot summer we will be having. You can wear a simple tank-top underneath and not worry about your arms showing. It also has a scrunching detail on the sleeves.
High-waisted Polka-Dot pants: JC Penny. Orignal price $44.99 on sale for $10.99. I know what you ladies are thinking, “ew…JC Penny?” I am telling you, you will be very surprised what you can come across while shopping here. These pants are very comfortable, and I have always received numerous compliments on them.
White Box heels: Nine West. Original price $59 on sale for $18. I do not own a white pair of heels, these are the ONLY ones I own. Very comfortable due to the thick box heel.

Early Spring Basics

Early Spring Basics

The weather the last few days has been beyond beautiful, a bit chilly but it’s all good! As long as we are still in the process of getting into Spring and not just Summer directly, I am very thankful.

It has been a while, and I am not going to waste anytime, because I know how all of you love & appreciate my “F.F.F” So let me get right into these amazing finds ASAP!

Since its beautiful during the day at this moment, and gets chilly at night I thought maybe this would be a good outfit to wear, something basic yet a hint of early Spring. What do you ladies think?

Fashion Finds:

Paris Top: H&M. Regular price $34.99 on sale for 7$. A very light weight, simple and chic top to pair up with anything literally. It is an oversized top, which I love.

Calf-Leather-Tights: ROSS. Price $7.99. I ended up buying two different kinds, and I wish I had bought another one because they are SO comfortable. Nothing heavy or annoying and it has leather (another weakness of mine).

Sandals: Burlington. $10.99. I bought these sandals last Summer and I get compliments on them until this day. Very comfortable, I paired it with this outfit because it pops out a bit of Spring. Simple and comfortable.

You can totally mix and match and always accessorize this look! Always be creative my pretties! Enjoy your weekend ladies and this GORGEOUS weather we have been having before it randomly gets cold again (which I have no problem with). Hope you ladies liked this simple and quick post!

Much Love,
Nelo .A.

Fall comfort.

 

HAPPY FRIDAY LADIES

Hoping all of you had a wonderful week, and a great weekend to look forward to! This is probably my 9435746047636 time apologizing but…I’M SORRY! I have been caught up in so many things (I cannot WAIT to share with you all). I am seriously, so thankful that you all LOVE the outfits I find and share with you all. I did reply to ALL of your emails/messages regarding this, so ladies… FRIDAY FASHION FINDS are back on track, woohoo!

 The weather here in the U.S. has been very bipolar lately, it either gets VERY cold or VERY warm. Weird, right? This is a VERY comfortable “Fall” look. It’s not too warm, yet it still will keep you from the chilly weather. This outfit can be worn anywhere, any day! If you want to switch the shoes to boots, go right ahead ❤

I know I have mentioned before, I do not look good in white, but this is a soft tone of white with a mixture of grey. I couldn’t help myself (said no girl ever) but  I also bought one in black! The prices are INSANE, see it for yourself!

Fashion Finds:

Shrug: Nordstrom Rack. Original price $48, on sale for $15. Yup, 15$! Its very soft, comfortable and so chic.

Printed Jersey Tights: Sears. Original Price $14.95 on sale for $4.99. Oh I know you’re surprised, I was too trust me. Extremely comfortable with a lot of stretch.

Black Purse: Target. Original Price 34.99, on sale for $12.99. I cannot express how many compliments I get with wearing this. For those of you who have not visited Target, please do. The accessories are very cute, and you can always find amazing deals.

Flats/Shoes: Urban Outfitters. Original price $50, on sale for $9. “Whaaaaaaaat?!” you say? Exactly my expression at the register. So, these shoes were reduced to $20, which was fine because they are BEYOND comfortable, it’s like you’re walking on clouds, I am not kidding. So I found my size, stood in line and it ringed up as $9. I was so, so happy, who wouldn’t be?!

Sunglasses: I did not purchase them from here, they were gifted to me from the UK ❤

Watch: You already know…MK

Earrings: Forever 21. These are mentioned a few times in my last posts, I just accessorized them with this look.

Well, what did you ladies think?! I am sure many of you loved the prices on these looks ❤ if you did please feel free to share! Or any wonderful shopping experience you had that your sale item was reduced even more! Stay tuned for next weeks F.F.F. ❤ ❤ ❤

Love & Peace,

Nelo .A.

Black & Gold

TGIF ❤ ❤ ❤

Hoping all of my lovely readers had a wonderful week! Who’s ready for the weekend?! I know I am 😉 Many of you have gone back to school, and many of you have parties to attend am I right? I am right. Well then this post will help you what to wear ❤

With the weather changing into that beautiful crisp air of Fall, its still nice to dress up without layering…yet. This weeks F.F.F. is the typical “Black & Gold” combination (my all time fav) which is decent to wear to any event!  Those who know me already know this, and those who dont’ well now you’ll know, I LOVE JUMPSUITS! I probably own a good amount of them, many in different designs/colors and many I have designed myself.

I have heard a lot of ladies complain that “jumpsuits make me look fat”!  If that’s the case, then I guess I have been looking enormous for quite a while then… Let me put this into simple words: BREAK YOUR COMFORT ZONE! That is what fashion is all about, exploring your own style and taste, breaking that wall and trying new things! If you’re going to sit there and think “Oh, this won’t look good on me” then I’m sorry dear, you’re missing out on a great chance of looking fabulous (not that you’re not, I’m speaking in fashion terms).

I am not going to sit here and preach and act like I haven’t had those moments, I have had LOTS and still kind of do (white makes me look horrible). But I had to go ahead and get out of it and just try on new styles and colors. Yes, I have worn white but it’s always in the back of my head “Goshhhh, I look so hideous right nowwww” you gotta do what you gotta do right?! So don’t be afraid and give it a go!

This attire can be worn to a bridal shower, baby shower, brunch, dinner, birthday dinner and many more.

Fashion Finds: 

JumpSuit: Charlotte Russe. Original price $34.99 on sale for $10.00. This jumpsuit is beyond comfortable and so chic. Just look at it! Oh and pockets, I loooove pockets. I’m telling you ladies, CR is the place to shop!

Snake Skin Black & Gold necklace: TopShop. Orignal price $30.00 on sale for $2.00. Take a deep breath, I know.2.Dollars.

Black and Gold Clutch: This has been in my previous posts to accessorize!

Sandals: Charlotte Russe. Orignal price $14.99 on sale for $5.00.

Have a wonderful weekend my pretties!

Much Love,

Nelo .A.

Military Green, Pink Flowers & Metallic Gold.

Happy Friday!

Well, this is the LAST weekend before school begins for the most of you! How does it feel? Colleges and Universities have already begun, boy how I miss school. Seriously, enjoy these bittersweet moments, and make ALOT of memories. This weeks Friday Fashion Finds is very comfortable and easy going. For those who do not have the energy to dress up for school early in the morning yet want to look good? This is the look for you!

Fashion Finds:

Military Green Wide-Sleeves Over-Sized Shirt: H&M. Original price $24.95 on sale for $10! This color has been trending a lot for the last year or so, and still will be (the fashion dork I am I do research these things).

Bright floral printed tights/leggings: Sears. Original price $14.95 on sale for $4.99. Yeah, yeah many of you are probably like “Ew. Sears”? Yes. Sears. It really is surprising I know, I forgot why I even went there, but hey it was worth it!

Sunglasses: H&M. Original price $9.95. I love these sunglasses (again I love over exaggerated sunglasses). And these cover my eyes and eyebrows, I was searching for a pair of these for a while and found them.

Mini-platform metallic gold sandals: TopShop. Original price $48 on sale for $21. These sandals are the most COMFORTABLE shoes I own! I love love love them, its like I am walking on air. Let’s also not forget…it has the color gold. Best purchase EVER.

Glitter & Shine

Happy, Happy, Happy Friday Ladies! 

How are all my fashionistas doing? I hope all of you are happy and in good health ❤ This weeks Fashion Finds is going to be a bit different! Many of you message me/comment on where I purchase my shoes from. I often get stopped at the malls with the same question, funny thing is I do not really pay attention to how much attention they cause… does that sound weird…?

Whenever I want to purchase new shoes of any sort, I honestly look for comfort. I MUST be comfortable in anything I wear. Oh, and of course they have to be unique, fun, weird, cute, basically BEYOND fashionable. Thaaaaat’s me!

These are not recent purchases, except for the flip flops (which you have probably seen in recent F.F.F) I decided to share these with you first is because the “glitter” flow has come back into style and wherever/whenever I have worn these I always get stopped. Here you go ladies…

Fashion Finds:

Silver Chunky Glitter Shoes: Steve Madden. Original Price $34.99 on sale for $11.99. Honestly the best way to describe these shoes are “shiny disco balls” because they literally shine like disco balls! Very soft material, and beyond comfortable to wear.

Gold Light Fabric Glitter Shoes: Burlington. Original Price $13.99. The brand of these shoes are “Chinese Laundry” and Burlington has plenty of it. All of their shoes are very nice, but these just caught my eyes. Very comfortable to wear, they have a little heel/platform. Kind of reminds me of tap-dance shoes…oh well! That’s fashion.

Soft Pink Chunky Glitter Shoes: Forever 21. Original Price $24.80 on sale for $8.99. Luckily, (almost every girls word when it comes to shopping) they were the last pair and in my size! These pair are a bit more heavier, flatter and have a point! Shoes with a point just adds that “sophisticated” look, at least for me.

White Gold Edged Flip Flops/Nude Gold Edged Flip Flops: Charlotte Russe. Original Price $12.95 on sale for $5. It was a buy one get one for $2 (happy hour) so woo hoo! The metal edge to these flip-flops give it that “look”. Very comfortable, and very boho-ish. These were bought recently, so go go go!

Rose Gold Flip Flops: Burlington. Original Price $10.99 on sale for $2.99! I kno-o-o-o-w!

Well I hope you ladies are satisfied, if so and you want more F.F.F. posts like these regarding only accessories/shoes do let me know! Enjoy the rest of the weekend ❤
