Bs ma khali9at mo'9at elshoulder pads, shoulder studs and basically anything that has to do with shoulders?
A7is 9arlaha sneen. I mean that trend was really hot back in 2009, when Balmain basically started it. And ofcourse he was inspired by the 80s and certain artists from the 80s, like Michael Jackson and Prince.
I still don't own anything with shoulder pads/ studs, since I am no rock star... Akhaf ashtree qi6a3 w t9eer qadeema o out of fashion. That's why I stick with classic and basic peices. Boring, I know. But I'd rather not look at old pics of myself and think LOL!
What do you think? Do you think it's going to be out of style soon?
Will I look funny wearing it?

Well you don't have to go for the shoulder pads look. Yes I agree it's not as "in" in fashion as it was first introduced by Balmain. BUT I do like the embellished sleeves and embellished pants looks which she has created. I also find the silhouette of the dress featured in the first photo with the studded belt very glamorous and powerful.

Classic pieces doesn't necessarilt translate to "boring". On the contrary, they look timeless chic to me. Just like the thing that Jacki O wore and Grace Kelly too!

I did buy blazers with statement shoulder pads a couple of seasons ago, but I'm not going to give them away. Actually I'll be storing them for when the time this trend emerges again in 10 years time or so. :)

Hijab & Co.
It looks powerful ;)

I couldn't agree more :)

I'm so glad that her team contacted me to feature her on my blog because her talents deserve a spotlight! :)
