Accessories Gift Guide for Every Budget

_MG_0051

1. OVER 100$ : If you are willing to splurge on a gift for a special person in your life, a watch is one of the best accessories out there. It has become a part of everyone’s life, that is functional and that adds a touch of fashion at the same time. There are a lot of options out there in the market that would suit anyone’s taste, but my choice as always falls on the DW watches, because I simply think they are an amazing value for money. These watches come in so many  different designs, that you would definitely find the one for you. For all my readers, I have a special discount code “playingwithfashion” that would give you an instant 15% off your purchase. (the offer is valid till Jan 15) check their website www.danielwellington.com _MG_0059

2. OVER 50$ : If you are considering a mid-range gift idea, local designers are the perfect way to go. You can easily find affordable designs that are unique and gorgeous at the same time. There are a lot of young designers in the Lebanese Market, but my heart always falls for Roula Dfouni’s designs. I have been a massive fan of her collection from the very beginning and she never fails to disappoint with her creativity and desgins. Her rings range from 60$ till 110$. You can shop through her website (link here)  _MG_0064

3. OVER 10$ : Accessories don’t have to be a very expensive gift, a lot of high-street shops carry amazing designs for very affordable prices. A necklace could be a perfect gift on its own or as a compliment to a bigger one. This season, accessories with marble are very in, and would be a perfect addition to any closet. I found this necklace in Pull&Bear in a set of 3 necklaces for an amazing price of 27,000 LL (around 20$).

 

Hope you enjoyed this post, and happy holiday shopping.

Monochromatic – “ish”

Monochromatic looks are all the range these days, where all the bloggers look absolutely fantastic in head-to-toe grey, black or white ensembles. You may think it is a very easy look to copy, since it is only one color, so how hard could that be? Well, let me assure you, that it is pretty hard. When building an outfit with one color only, you have to play with different other elements to bring interest to the look. From texture, to fabric to different degradation of color, a lot of things have to be taken into consideration to make “monochromatic” work.

For a color-loving girl, monochromatic looks are hard to apply, so I need to add a little bit of color to make them work for me. For this outfit, I paired a sleeveless wool jumper with a ruffled skirt, to play with textures and added some color with the sneakers and the bag. The colors are not too bold, so for me they still fit in the one-color category.
