As a young woman in today’s society, I’m always torn between wanting to keep close to my teenage years by still being my myspace rocker wannabe self, and becoming this lady with a newfound sense of class and pizzazz. Head in the clouds, scarf around my neck, the ultimate Chanel chic.
At 25, I know who I am, what I want to be and what I want to accomplish, but ask me what my style is and you’ll be met with a disoriented face. I don’t have a definite style, I like to rock my ripped jeans and Stan Smith’s with my favorite pink sweater, and just a touch of color on my lips. That’s what I wear everyday to work – working as a digital manager for brands does wonders for my morning routine, I need 10 minutes tops to get ready – but when I go out sometimes at night, whether it is for fashion events or just dinner with friends, I like to class things up a bit. Give me a high waisted long skirt paired with Louboutins and I’m a happy gal. I gain inches as well as self confidence, my heels, with my favorite dark purple lippie (I’m in love with the Huda Beauty Famous at the moment) does wonders.
So it’s all about balance, not erasing one side of myself, my personality, for the other, they both live at peace inside my head as well as my closet. This is why I’m so adamant about adding a little traditional touches to my outfits sometimes. A nice kimondora (a mix between a kimono and a moroccan gandoura) over a pair of a jeans and the right heels makes the perfect combination for an outting with friends. The brand that I’m so fond of is my sister’s « Abla Zemmama’s Haute Couture », not only because I support local brands as well as my sister, but there’s nothing I like more than seeing girls being on top and managing to get things moving forward.
