Aside

I name the ladies in my life after @ElieSaabWorld 2015 collection pieces

One of the most awesome side effects of blogging has been my introduction into the world of fashion. I now find myself really looking at fashion in a different way and admittedly it is not my strong point but as they say in the fashion world, beauty is in the eye of the beholder which I interpret to mean that my beauty may not be the same beauty as yours.

downloadWe all have our own likes and dislikes. I started recognizing fashion names I love on perfume bottles and now I love viewing the outfits too.  It makes me think it is a certain right of passage for a brand to launch a perfume.

26132495-5374My first experience of Elie Saab was the gorgeous notes of Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Patchouli, White Flower, Cedar Wood and Rose Honey at the Marie Claire Trunk Show. The silage of the scent was intoxicating and addictive. Sharp yet gentle all at the same time. Anything that has white flower or orchid in it, I tend to gravitate strongly towards so when my husband bought me the “That that cannot be named in this post” perfume for my birthday, he nailed it!

Another plus of blogging is all the perfume samples we receive and I have become quite engaged with learning about the artistry surrounding perfumes and the effort that goes into designing the bottles and the scent.

I want my entire closet to be filled with pieces like these. If I could personify the perfume, it would look like these beautiful fashion pieces. Bravo Mr Saab.

This collection is not only wearable, it exudes chic, feminine elegance radiating an ethereal aura that I imagine many clothing lines will try to emulate and I have to say I am very excited to see that the models are no more tanned than I am. A big plus in my porcelain Lilly white world. Hopefully this will mark a new trend in sunless skin.

It truly is a pleasure to share these magnificent outfits with my readers and if not for them, a post for me to go back to over and over when I want to feel close to true beauty. I truly believe these pieces capture the softer essence of a lady with the strength of a white tigress effervescing modern seduction. 

To further personify the clothes, I like to imagine myself and those that I know in the outfits so I have named each outfit with people and things that come to mind when i first look at the piece. I have considered personalities, the effect the person has on me and also what I believe would look beautiful on them.  I also have some awesome makeup inspiration ideas that I would love to try out on all those mentioned. I am long overdue a weekend of play with my makeup kit and feel like I am in need of a night in with my friends who will let me play. Without further anticipation I present the gorgeous 2014/5 Elie Saab Collection with a hint of Porcelain Rouge.

    • I am so glad you like your dress Loren. Maybe one day we will find one just like it for you or Elie will make one for you. I felt like Lawyer meets Pink Minky when I saw the dress. Strong but fun. Mwah
