I came accross this beautiful top by just scrolling through instagram earlier this afternoon, and the top happened to be made from the famouse Palestinian keffiyeh fabric. The fabric is usually used to make scarves, that the military men wear, and religious men from the Muslim world wear. But somewhere down the line someone had a genius idea to make this beautiful scarf fabric into clothing.
Namely a new emerging brand called: Cecilie Copenhagen
Well, we had to put our two cents in by jumping on board to assemble some keffiyeh threads of our own, with a twist. The fabric is so chic and unique, that the style pair ups are endless.
Have a look at what we put together:
Paired with some leather barefoot shoes.
Who doesn’t like a good way to still look good and keep a little money in our pockets? Just think about it , some of us shop in consignment shops thrift stores and clearance racks to stay stylish but not out on your bum broke because of it.
Well if this describes you, then i will share my thoughts with you on winter sandals! The thought of it is just exciting right? now this doesn’t mean break out your thong sandals in the winter and freeze your poor little manicured toes in the cold while you rock your new fur coat, that’s not what I’m suggesting here , but rather take a look at these and let me know what you think
absolutely Gorgeous and ingenious idea!
It may be old news for some but new for others, just saying.
You don’t have to pack away those favorite platform summer sandals after all just winterize them!
The more color the better!
Have fun winterizing your favorite summer kicks!

Mary Katrantzou is a Greek designer currently working and living in London .
Katrantzou’s graduating show in 2008 mapped out her signature style. It was themed around trompe l’oeil prints of oversized jewellery featured on jersey-bonded dresses. these pieces created the illusion of wearing giant neckpieces that would be too heavy in reality. She also designed real jewellery made out of wood and metal that were exact replicas of the prints. Mary katrantzou’s first ready-to-wear collection debuted at London fashion week in Spring/Summer 2009, with the support of the BFC and the New Gen scheme. Despite a small collection of nine dresses, Katrantzou picked up 15 prestigious stockists including Browns, Joyce and Colette. The designer achieved show status the following season, in Autumn/Winter 2009.
We’ve been following her designs and I must say they are absolutely uber chic, the concepts of the prints are both lively and attention getting. If you love color feminine looks and outstanding prints then you’ll love Mary’s ss 2013 line.
You can find her at London’s fashion week for those who want to see the models in action modeling some of her masterpieces , stay tuned in date with the upcoming designer shows and you won’t be disappointed, I know I’m not.
