2014 has been an incredible year for me as I see my handmade line flourish and more of my ideas coming to life. Not only that, but this marks my third major press feature. This time it is Harper's BAZAAR edition and their favorite picks for this Fall/Winter. This features my lapis lazuli teardrop necklace which is one of my favorite creations because it truly reflects my Egyptian heritage.
As I was out handpicking my beads in New York, I came across these glass beads. So unique and different, something I have never seen. Each bead has a coppery/bronze outline with a double sided triangle center filled with an amethyst color. It adds such a unique touch to any outfit you want to wear. I decided to create a pendant necklace with these beads and as I took my new piece out for a test drive last week, it was such a hit and received many compliments. Now, reassured of the design and look, it is here for you to own while supplies last.
Another weekend is upon us ladies, but that doesn't mean we have to opt for the sweats to feel comfortable. Try an outfit like this one to give you that relaxed and easy look yet effortless chic in the same time. I always say that jewelry can make an outfit go from boring to chic and even glamorous and this is exactly how. Everyone owns a white tee and some skinny denim at this point (if not, go get one!). Add a chunky chained pendant necklace like this African jade handmade piece from my line along with some skinny bangles and sandals to complete your look...Your welcome.
It is time for another affordable look for this Spring/Summer. I am a firm believer that being in style does not have to be costly. Here's a fun Summer look for you to try with this flared A-line skirt from H&M. White is the simplest way to pair it with this off the shoulder top from Asos. You can also combine it with black, ivory or printed top (loose or tight) if you please. Add this chunky colorblocked statement fuschia/navy necklace to help highlight that neckline and a simple gold bangle for the perfect finishing touch.
This week's feature is far from boring with this faux camel colored skirt and light blue top. Perfect to pair together or to wear each piece separately to create endless possibilities. Such a comfortable ensemble to wear out or even at work for a fashionable day with a cardigan or blazer on top. At the House of Zada, it is all about the easy looks that make a loud statement. As always do not forget the most important part, your jewels! Pair with this Swarovski crystal dangle earring for the perfect combination.
Summer is upon us and you know what that means, white, beige...white, beige. You see where I am going with this? White pants are a summertime staple that makes any look extra fashionable. The feel good factor once you put on those white pants or tank that can brighten up anyone's day. The store shelves packed with neon colored pieces that all you need is a nude shoe or white pant to make the ultimate ensemble. This is a DO for every Spring/Summer season and don't forget to wear white pants in the Winter too! Here are some affordable finds this lace fitted sweater combined with linen Loft trouser pants and some chunky heels to keep you comfortable yet so chic. Don't forget your most important piece, your House of Zada handmade gemstone statement necklace.
Another lookbook Thursday is upon us and this time we welcome Spring with open arms celebrating its summer nudes and all that it has to bring. I will be doing a summer nudes feature next week where all things are white and beige and how to combine them. For now, step out with these powdery pink shorts and an off white blazer to bring the heat. Don't forget the most important part of your outfit, that chunky Ihani handmade necklace and the ankle strap sandals which is a must for this Spring/Summer 2014.
Earlier this week, I shared with you another top trend to try next time you go shopping, graphic black and white. The black and white combination is an instant hit all the time but more so this season. You can wear practically any shoe color with a black and white outfit, you can't go wrong. This season, orange is a staple color that every fashionista should have in her closet in some shape or form. Combining an orange pump with a gold touch allows you to tie in your accessories effortlessly. Don't forget your jewels with this 3 tier gold chain House of Zada necklace to add to your show stopping boldness.
The trend report continues with the ultimate season for graphic black and white. Anything goes when it comes to this classy combination. Whether you like to wear it in stripes, polka dots, houndstooth or anything else, you will be right on trend. Go for the bold prints and offset it with plain pumps and some colorful baubles. Here are some affordable finds to try.
What happens when you combine two of the hottest trends for this Spring/Summer? PERFECTION. Orange is the new black in case you haven't seen orange everything once you walk in any store and when you combine it with navy and stripes, it is a guaranteed hit. This affordable look can be worn at work with a cardigan or as is. You can also wear it for a night out with your ladies, a date or a fun night out in the city. The possibilities are endless. Don't forget to complete your look with your pearl Swarovski crystal earrings where pearls are always appropriate. What do you think. Do you see yourself wearing this?
