Loving This Week: Teeki

This week we are totally obsessed with Teeki. Teeki is an eco conscious activewear line. They have a collection of gorgeous printed leggings, capri’s and shorts for men, women and kids. Our workout wardrobes definitely got a lot funkier!

The Best part about this line, other than being totally fashionable is that they are made out of recycled water bottled and the printing process is eco friendly as well! Each pair of leggings recycles approximately 25 plastic bottles.

So how do they do it? Well other than being really lucky to be blessed with amazing genes, a lot of their physique comes from eating healthy and working out.

Here’s a quick ten minute video that will have you fit in no time!

This routine will work your entire body and you don’t need any equipment!

Other than doing no equipment full body workouts, models like Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel and Joan Smalls usually do yoga, pilates and boxing.

90’s Fashion Comeback

Fashion keeps getting recycled and reinvented. Lately I’ve quite a few trends that reminds me of fashion back in the 90’s.

You’d be surprised to find what made the list

 

High waisted jeans

With the rise of the low waisted skinny jeans in the last couple of years, I’m glad to see both high waisted and low waisted jeans coexist peacefully on the racks.

 

Ripped jeans

The 90’s is often thought of as the grunge era, what’s more grunge than ripped jeans? Ripped jeans are now a wardrobe staple if you want a casual look.

 

Harem pants

Remember the iconic parachute pants MC Hammer wore in his music video? Well harem pants are back. They don’t have a puffy look that parachute pants do, they are more tailored.

 

Sneakers

Recently luxury fashion houses like Chanel and Dior have come out with “fashionable” sneakers. Needless to say, sneakers are the biggest shoe trend right now.

 

Denim overalls

Overalls were big back in the 90’s. It’s slowly creeping back in our wardrobes right now. But now we have a variety of overalls to choose from and not only denim.

 

Timberland boots

Timberland boots are regularly seen on celebrities like Jay Z, Chris Brown and many others. Since they have a celebrity following, it’s not too long before these are seen on every other person.

 

Flannel/ Plaid shirts

Flannel shirts in the 90’s were never buttoned. It was always worn on top of a graphic Tee. Now it’s worn buttoned up and tucked in or tied around the waist or even layered beneath a sweater.

90’s Supermodel Nostalgia

September is the most important and fashionable month of the year. The magazines are outrageously thick and are filled with amazing editorials and glossy campaigns.

Thinking about this got me nostalgic about the time when supermodels used to grace the covers of Vogue.

Think more along the lines of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss and Brooke Shields instead of celebrities from the film or music industry.

Look at these 90’s Vogue covers, they seem like they are from a different era.

Kids are adorable. What makes them even more adorable? Fashion of course!

Loving This Week: Vita fede

I’m always on the lookout for new arm candy and I’ve been obsessed Vita Fede bracelets for some time now. I absolutely adore the simplicity of the design. It feels like a classic Cartier Love bracelet (without the hefty price tag) and goes with everything in my wardrobe!

The brains behind the brand is Cynthia Sakai. She describes Vita Fede as “a fusion of Asian, American and European culture that represents an elevated aesthetic, a lifestyle and a point of view that are universal.”

While the basic design remains the same, the materials used changes. It’s handcrafted in Italy using brass, natural stones, Swarovski crystals, sterling silver and 24K gold.

Here’s what I’ve been lusting after!

7 Must Haves For The Summer

There’s three ways to be sure that summer in Dubai has begun. One, your makeup melts off within five minutes of stepping out. Two, the temperature reaches 30 degrees before the clock hits 9am. Three, the roads are surprisingly empty because everyone’s on a vacay.

 

If you aren’t travelling anywhere this summer, here’s a list of things you need to survive summer in Dubai.

 

1. The Trio: A pair of shades, sunscreen and a floppy hat. (For those brave souls who go to the beach in this weather, may you never get sunburnt)

2. Triangl swimsuits (For those late night pool parties)

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 11.07.48 AM

3. Moisturiser with a high SPF. (Nobody wants to look older than they actually are)

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 11.24.10 AM

4. Sandals. (Anything that doesn’t completely cover your foot and make it sweat, like sneakers)

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 11.38.18 AM

5. Pedicure. (Your feet need to be at their best since you’ll be wearing open toe shoes)

6. Maxi dresses. (Pants? In this weather? Nope)

7. Skater dresses (For chic evenings out)

Style Crush! Lupita Nyong’o

Saying that Lupita Nyong’o is having a good year is an understatement. A year ago she was virtually unknown until her critically acclaimed role in the movie, 12 Years a Slave. She’s won an Oscar and now she’s landed her first ever Vogue cover!

ln

While she’s known for her acting, she’s also known for her impeccable style. Working with stylist  Micaela Erlanger she’s managed to pull off 60 red carpet looks, most of which have been a hit.

 

Here are some of my personal favourite looks of Lupita.

Steal Her Style: Olivia Palermo

Recently Olivia Palermo got married in a somewhat unconventional wedding “dress”. Instead of opting for a gown as one would usually do, she decided to do something different. She wore a cream cashmere sweater, white shorts along with a full tulle satin and silk skirt and blue Manolo Blahnik shoes.
