BLAQ Beauty

My apologies for the radio silence. I've been extremely busy the past couple of weeks and did not have the luxury to spare a minute for updates here. However, I have been working on some exciting projects, one of which I'll be sharing with you now. BLAQ Concept store has invited me to manage their season's advertorial, so I got busy planning the outfits, styling the model, trying to art-direct (which I need to work on for future photo shoots), and taking photos. I'm actually pleased with the results! We tried to offer a mix of looks and options for young, on-the-go, and hip ladies. I must say I had a really hard time controlling my shopping instincts. I wanted almost everything I used to style the model with, it wouldn't hurt to get that flawless figure with it too (mashallah!). Take for example that beyond gorgous Emilio de la Morena velvet skater dress paired with an IRO leather jacket! The ideal option for a modern cocktail look. Scroll down for more looks that will take you from daytime chic to night glam in style.

You might be interested to know that BLAQ Concept store will be hosting a White Winter event in-store this Tuesday from 5pm to 10pm to celebrate the launch of their new season's selection. Pass by and you'll get special treats when shopping during the event. 

Culottes are the silhouette of the new season! I loved this mint-colored version with a hidden pleat by Noon by Noor. Paired it with a laid-back oversized knitted top, some statement necklace, and nude heels and you're right-on-trend. This outfit id perfect for work or evening going out with your friends for a casual chic sushi-night. 

We had to up the ante with this rock chic/edgy look. This Palmer Harding leather skirt has the most amazing metallic shade of maroon/purple. I paired it with a Chinti and Parker XO knitted top and a pair of multi-strap ankle boots by Toga

I can't seem to have enough of  Chinti and Parker's knitted tops! They're just timeless and you can wear them for years to come! Paired the knitted top with cropped slouchy leather pants and white shoes. 

Go all pretty and feminine with this Razan Alazzouni off-the-shoulders cropped top with a matching pleated skirt. All you need is a pair of statement golden earrings and you're good to go for a formal dinner or a reception. 

This bomber jacket with hand-cut details by  Palmer Harding made me speechless! It's definitely one of the most amazing pieces I have ever seen for Fall 2014. Look at the reflection of its color! I paired it with Frame Denim overalls and a pair of lace-up brogues. 

How about some statement armor rings by Aamaya By Priyanka Jewelry 

Distressed white tee by IRO paired with a Palmer Harding statement skirt and ankle boots. Perfection!
