Gucci Dionysus Dupes

October 26, 2016

For more beauty and style posts, follow me on Instagram! @sarah_najafi There is no doubt that Gucci has made a serious comeback. And if you have the opportunity to splurge, go with Gucci! I never everrrrrr thought monogrammed bags would be fashionable again, but leave it Alessandro Michele, the brand’s Creative Director, for its revival. Many awaited his Fall 2015 collection debut, and as the former accessories designer, he did not disappoint. He introduced what is now the most coveted…

One Bag, Two Ways

October 19, 2016

I just got back from the most amazing 2-week long road trip through the North West. We drove up and flew back home so I really had to edit my wardrobe for the flight back. I despise packing. And why is it that before a trip, your schedule seems to be the most hectic? The last thing I want to do is pair outfits together because I’m the most moody dresser. The hardest thing for me to choose are which…

Fall Trend Alert: Velvet

September 9, 2016
velvet-fall-trend-2016

I know it’s hard to believe it’s almost Fall. I’m still over here trying to work on my New Year’s resolutions. I mean…I barely got a chance to lay poolside in my new bikini from Naked Wardrobe (that I’m utterly obsessed with btw). That reminds me, I only bought one new bikini? That alone says so much. I definitely need a few more hours in the day. But I always make time for you <insert cheesy ear-to-ear smile>. So the time has…

Back-To-School Backpacks For The Fashion Girl

August 17, 2016

Most of my younger, school-going counterparts know that no other bag offers comfort and coolness quite like a backpack. And, lucky for all you back-to-schoolers, they are more in-style than ever. But these days, those double-strapped bags you see at bus stops and crosswalks aren’t just for kids anymore. Just ask model Karlie Kloss. With her model-off-duty looks, the girl can make a Darth Vader backpack look cool for God’s sake! Moral of the story is, you don’t have to be…

The Bag You’ll Want To Carry Everywhere This Summer

May 18, 2016

photo: gettyimages.com/DanielZuchnick Every Summer, we all pull out our woven and straw bags as they have warm weather written all over them. But they’re taking center stage like never before. The raffia bag made a serious splash on the 2016 runways and is no longer for beach days or tropical resort vacations. Whether you favor a shoulder or messenger bag, neutrals or multi-colored, classic or statement pieces, there is a bag for you. Hands down, my favorite is the fringed style because…

I know it’s difficult to decide what to buy your mom for Mother’s Day, and we tend to stress over it a bit too much. In my case, my mom is pretty hip and she likes everything I like, so it’s usually a no-brainer. I thought I would create a list of gift ideas for your cool mom. I decided to simplify things even more and I picked all the gifts from Nordstrom – one store, free shipping, and easy returns.…

Vegan Crossbody Handbag + Striped Shirt Dress

April 14, 2016

One of Spring’s hottest handbag trends is structured pieces that add a certain level of sophistication to your overall look. And that couldn’t be more true than with this white crossbody bag from, Los Angeles based company, Nicole Lee (nicoleleeonline.com, $71.95). I was recently introduced to the brand and was so happy to learn that all their pieces are vegan and certified by PETA. I find that many affordable faux leather handbag options are poorly made. I’m sure living up…

Spring Style: My Nowruz Outfit

March 25, 2016
spring style

I’m so excited to share with you the outfit I wore for Iranian New Year (“Nowruz”), which marks the first day of Spring, my favorite time of year! Traditionally, you are supposed to wear a new outfit from head-to-toe symbolizing a renewal for the new year. I cheated a bit and only wore two new pieces – oops! I chose to center my outfit around a super girly, off-white skirt by Harlowe & Graham.  I love the frayed pattern and…
