Arabian Princess…

So today is Eid for us Muslims, as I am sure most of you know. It is specifically Eid Al-Fitr (which means the Eating Festival/holiday). This is a celebration we do after fasting the month of Ramadan. What is Ramadan? I will just give you a little explanation before sharing what I wore today.

Okay so, Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims everywhere around the world where we fast on a daily basis from dawn to sunset and no we do not fast for 30 days straight. It’s from dawn to sunset daily. Ramadan is a pillar in the five pillars of Islam. Not to make this too long and for those who are curious, Ramadan is a period for us to redirect our heart away from worldly activities. It is the opportunity for us cleanse our soul by freeing it from harmful impurities. Ramadan also teaches Muslims how to better practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice (be selfless), and empathy for those who are less fortunate. This holy month encourages us to undertake actions of generosity and charity.

After Ramadan we celebrate by visiting our families, friends, offering money to those in need. Giving gifts to little ones and money all around. We buy new clothes and have fun with the people closest to us. So, since I was raised in Canada and we’re far away from our big family, we celebrate with our friends and just sit and enjoy each other’s company.

Since I didn’t really do much shopping for this event, like every other year. I pulled something out from my closet I bought last summer from Palestine but never ended up wearing it.

It’s a beautiful handcrafted long jacket that worked on by local in the town of Jericho in the West Bank. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. With Arabic calligraphy and crochet detailing, this is definitely a collectible piece for me. Even though it’s heavy and the workmanship is intricate and detailed, it’s a very delicate piece.

Here’s the look:

Animal planet

Been feeling sick a lot this year but lately I’m on a high…so excited and so full of energy!!! It’s probably all the vitamin D I have been getting. So I felt like dressing awesome and connecting with nature in my own way. My friend Cristina is super patient with me. She’s the one behind of the camera most of the time. Hi Cristina!!!

Anyway, back to the outfits. I am sharing with you today 2 outfits I wore with animal prints on them. PS: I have a huge huge weird obsession with bird prints, for some inexplicable reason. Both these outfits make me happy.

I have had these items for about 4-5 years and they still look pretty damn good! 2 dresses I purchased purely for the prints.

So without further ado, here are the results:

A look into 2016’s Met Gala…

The Met Galas are always a joy to watch for the many fashion surprises we get. This is the one day where celebrities get to dress up crazy and go all the way (not that they can’t any other day). This year’s theme is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. There were loads of cool outfits and pretty dresses. I wanted to share with you guys my 15 favorite looks and why I love them.

Katy Perry
I am always and forever in love with her. She’s the cutest and I absolutely love her costumey theatrical outfits for her shows and the elegance she has on the red carpet. This Prada signed dress is the bomb. I love how loud and dramatic it looks. I give her props for wearing it so elegantly well.

Kate Hudson
I love the work on this number. Atelier Versace is always on point with cut outs and panels. They have the most intricate detailing ever. Their dresses are both elegant and so fashion forward. The silhouettes are flattering and cuts are interesting. This dress is a total winner. Way to go Kate!!

Selena Gomez
Even though her look is quite simple, I love it. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi about it that I absolutely adore. It’s girly, cute yet a little badass. It looks so 90s!! Perhaps this is what I love about it. This Louis Vuitton number is fresh and hip and definitely deserves a shout out.

Blake Lively
She always knows what to wear and how to wear it. Her style is timeless. Blake is always on point in her outfits and her elegance gives her extra cookies!!! This Burberry number is sultry, sexy and super feminine. The color suits her so well and the shine is subtle yet loud enough to make a statement. She looks like a Grecian goddess ˂3

Kate Bosworth
Even though I think the color washes her out a little bit; I can’t get over this beautiful gown. Dolce & Gabbana always know how to make a woman look wonderful and scrumptious. Their creations are just divine and to die for. The workmanship on Kate’s dress is stunning; the intricate detailing is on point. Love this on Bosworth!!! She rocked it.

Nicole Kidman
To me, she’s the queen of the red carpet, there’s not one look she missed. Her outfits, her makeup and hair are constantly winning. This dress is yummy! This Valentino dress is celestial and dreamy and wonderful and beautiful and just ugh!! So prettttyyyy ˂3 I would totes wear this dress to breakfast, lunch and supper. Nicole looks magical. She deserves a massive high-five for this number.

Irina Shayk
This Marc Jacobs’ dress is so delicate. It’s very feminine and Irina is wearing it well. The color suits her well and the cut even more. People would either love this dress or hate it. But I sincerely think the lacy fabric and the color make this dress elegant in a very simple way. The bustier top gives it a sexy oomph and Irina really knows how to make it work.

Emma Stone
She’s the one celebrity I would totes be best friends with. Her charm and allure make me want to eat her (in a totally not creepy innocent way).  This Prada gown with a corset embellished with floral accents makes her look fierce and fashion forward. The simplicity in the design but the complexity of the detailing makes Emma look like a gothy gladiator ready to slay style-haters. Her new hair color is super epic too! Love Emma ˂3

Miranda Kerr
Balmain did it again. The color, the texture, the cut and the detailing on Miranda’s outfit is just special. It’s unique in every sense of the word. She really knows how to dress her hot bod! I don’t know why but I find this outfit super joyful despite the dark colors. The ruffles on the skirt are super cute!!! EEEEE. She’s a total babe!!

Claire Danes
She definitely take the prize of the coolest dress in this year’s Met Gala. Her Zac Posen gown makes look like Cinderella. But the fact that it lights up…that’s just another level of wow. The thing I am mostly attracted to in this dress is the fabric…the silky sheen snow blue tone color gives this dress a royal Disney princess look and Claire is wearing it super well. Zac’s effortless layering skills are always on point. I commend him for his talent and wonderful taste. He is truly a handy designer.

Gigi Hadid
Even though this Tommy Hilfiger dress is super simple, the color and the cut make this mention worthy. It’s sheer, sleek, sexy, delicate and feminine all at once. Sometimes less is more and she truly proved that. The simple styling gives this dress a shot to stand out on its own without clutter.

Zoe Kravitz
She got the costume part right. Zoe killed it with this Valentino creation. She looked mysterious and sultry. The shoes are so cool; I wish I could own them right now. This dress commands presence and she delivers. This wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but it really does it for me. She’s a daredevil princess!!

Taylor Swift
What I liked about Taylor’s look is the edginess. It’s not the usual girly girl look that Taylor usually goes for. She took a risk with this Louis Vuitton dress and it paid off. The hair is a little questionable, but I commend her for risking it. She definitely has a combat slayer look going and it’s working in her favor.

Saoirse Ronan
I find this look cute for some reason…Saorise looks adrobs with the feathers and the little butterfly. This Christopher Kane dress is interesting and it gives her a certain edge. The dress is a statement in itself and she wore it well.

Sofia Sanchez de Betak
I can’t help it. Another D&G creation I fell in love with. D&G always hit it out of the park in terms of elegance and design. They are a killer duo and I look up to them hard. I am in love with everything they do. The bohemian, free spiritedness, elegance, creativity and complexity of their designs just make them #1 in my book. The colors and textures are always up to par and beyond. Sofia knows her stuff and choosing this piece gives her major thumps up. The dress and cape combination is pure royalty. Owning a D&G dress is on my bucket list…I don’t know where I would wear it, but even if I did at home and sipped on tea, I’d die happy.
