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!

Have a wonderful weekend my pretties!

Much Love,

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 ❤

Summer Kimono-2

As promised in my last post, here is another Summer Kimono Fashion Find for you ladies ❤

Fashion Finds:

Summer Kimono: H&M. Original Price $34.95 on sale for $15.00. This is a very bright color for the summer, which I love. I barely wear bright colors, so forced myself to purchase this and get over it! There are also many other bright colors in this Kimono.

Pastel Pink Skinny Jeans: Forever 21. Original price $19.80. As mentioned in one of my previous F.F.F Forever 21 skinny jeans are VERY comfortable, so if you have not purchased a pair please do so.

Silver Studded Flats: Forever 21. Original Price $34.80 on sale for $8.99. These flats are one of my favorite color combinations, you can wear these flats with almost any outfit.

I also added a black undershirt, you can add any color if you want even a printed shirt would look really nice.

❤ ❤ ❤

Summer Kimono-1

I’m back!!! Ahhhh, where to begin?

First off, I apologize for the very late blog posts, I fell very sick for a good few days. Second, THANK YOU to all of you who have emailed me/messaged me asking how I have been, etc. Thank God I am way better, and your emails gave me lots of smiles ❤

I will be posting TWO Kimono (F.F.F.) Looks just for you all!

Without wasting anymore time, lets get into this weeks Fashion Finds!

Fashion Finds:

 Floral Print Kimono: Burlington. Sale: $4.99. Kimonos are a style that NEVER go out of fashion. Whether its for the Summer or Winter, they always give a great look.

Boyfriend Jeans: Ross. Original Price $11.99. Since “Boyfriend” jeans are trending very much this year, I decided to get a pair and see what the hype is all about. It took me forever, honestly to find the “right” pair. I pick comfort over anything, and these were perfect.

Turquoise Hand-Beaded Necklace: This was gifted to me from Pakistan. I just accessorized it with this look.

Light-Gold-Shoes: Wet Seal. Original Price $28.80, on sale for $6.99! So, growing up for some odd reason “sneakers” have always looked hideous on me. Always. These are probably my OWNLY pair of sneaker related footwear, and I do not regret it one bit. Beyond comfortable.

Hope you ladies enjoyed this look, and of course you can match any undershirt.

Much Love to you ALL

Rawr.

Hello ❤

Sorry Ladies! I am 2 days late on the Fashion Finds post, as Ramadan is coming to an end (sigh) the schedule has been building up. So this is a more relaxed, comfortable, and fun “night out” or “day out” with your girls look. Not too much and not too less! And if you love cheetah print… then rawr!

Fashion Finds ❤ ❤ ❤

Jersey Cheetah MK Top: Marshalls. Original price (around 70$ or more cannot remember), sale price $20.99! One of my first MK shirts and its very comfortable.

Skinny Jeans: Forever 21. Original Price $7.80. These jeans use to be for $10.80 and just dropped down! I have a couple of Skinny Jeans, but honestly the most comfortable ones I own are all from F21. If you have not purchased a pair… go now!

MK Watch: My all time favorite watch, as ALL of you already know.

2-Tone Twisted Bracelet: Fornash. Original price $24.00. I really don’t know why I bought this…maybe because I just didn’t have anything like it (sigh).

Earrings: Forever 21. Original Price $6.80. So a pair of earrings were missing, and they gave it for me for $3.80 (set of 4 earrings, 1 was missing).

Sunglasses: Forever 21. I have posted these before, aka my “Bumble Bee” sunglasses. And they were on sale for $1.99

Gold Chained Clutch: Forever 21. Original Price $24.80 on sale for $6.99. Amazing right? I know! It looks like a small clutch but its actually very spacious.

Shoes: Wet Seal. Original Price $30, on sale for… $6.99. These shoes are SO comfortable, and I LOVED the price so I had to…

Hope you ladies enjoyed this relaxed look! Stay tuned for next weeks F.F.F!
Much Love,
Nelo .A.

Boho-Ish

Happy Birthday America! 

I am so proud and happy to be part of this amazing country! The opportunities we have from education to any sort of freedom, I am ever so grateful. I have travelled around the world, but there is NO place like HOME. Proud Muslim-American ❤

With that said, I hope all of you enjoyed your delicious BBQs and cookouts! Yes, for us fasting many of us still carried the tradition of cookouts (not eating until the sunset but inhaling the goodness!)  and going to see the fireworks. It is going to be so interesting to tell the next generation, how we “fasted during the 4th of July” makes me laugh.

I know this post is a bit late, but better late than never! Here is this weeks Fashion Finds!
