last week i attended a gala celebrating successful arab women, for which my mom was a nominee for one of the categories and an hommage award. since she couldnt make it, my sister and i had to accept the honor on her behalf so i wanted to look squeaky clean. had to sprint straight from work so i ran around the mall like a frantic headless chicken and came up with the outfit above.
aaaand on monday i went and got a tattoo i’ve always wanted; her name in arabic on my arm! first tattoo ever. i know i want a few more but less visible and only tiny ones. i think im already addicted.
for a while now i have been VERY into printed pants. although they might seem a little overwhelming at first, they are just too easy to wear. the right prints can be so versatile and can easily bring you from day to night, just like i did above. pair your wiiiild pants with a more neutral/comfy top for an easy coffee shop outfit (i actually took a nap on my laptop at bubble tea lounge..). i added my bright turquoise new balances for some extra comfort. switch to heels and a structured blazer for night, and voila. super simple.
feeling so stuffy in montreal right now. everything is melting and grey, and all i do is run from job to job to bed to job. but my stylenanda girl crushes never fail to disappoint with their cheery spirit, “unbruised legs” (as per youtube commenter) and uhrrrmazing styling. makes me want to hop into a jumpsuit and onto a plane to slurp up some ice cream in LA.
i have a tendency to be overly spontaneous.. and as i walked in the bathroom and saw a pair of scissors i decided to chop off a bucket ton of hair. i was feeling pretty damn kawaii after that which i how i probably ended up in this varsity jacket and creepers. oh, and i now work part time at american apparel, along with my usual dentist job.. and since that means im working practically 24/7 one would think im saving up lot of money. that is not the case. boo, i suck.
i sortof disappeared for the month of december! sincere virtual apologies. its not so much new years eve (in fact i hate any event with that amount of surrounding expectations) but there is something always so refreshing about being given the chance to start over. so i was hoping YOU! my lovely readers could help me brush off some cobwebs of 2012 and kick into 2013 with brand spanking new boots. channelling my inner alice, i could probably do some damage.in fact, im writing to you from under a palm tree, morocco (read: bed, because i ate way too much) and yes, these do get through airport security..
there are 2 ways to get the best chrismukkah present you never got :
(1) like the goldzmine facebook page and share the DOCS photo!
(2) tweet “kicking into 2013 with dr martens and @goldzmine! http://tinyurl.com/bougmbh“
i will announce the winner on january 1st (probably from a hole in the wall internet cafe.. since i lost my laptop charger and there’s not an apple store in sight) !
best of luck, happy holidays, work hard / play hard and kick 2013′s BUTT!
