Hello HELLO all you gorgeous people! I know, I know! I’m really bad at updating my blog and need to be doing it more often.

So, how’s everyone been? I, for one, am LOVING the summer that London has finally been blessed with after such a long time. It felt like ages since I had worn any of my summer stuff and it felt weird walking out of my house without a jacket or any scarf. For a couple of days I felt like I had forgotten something… Even felt a little underdressed. But those days are truly behind me (hope I haven’t spoken too soon!)

So what have I been doing?? Well other than busy working and exploring London, every chance I got, nothing much. To be honest I’ve been quite lazy updating the blog. However I am quite active on my Twitter account (@NidaJehan) and Facebook Page (Miss TikTik) so please come say Hi over there! 🙂

Seems like London has a sale every other month and for someone like me, who LOVES to shop, is an excuse to shop even MORE! so I met up with my friends and we went to the Zara store on King’s Road just to see what was new there.

The thing with Zara sale is that they start with really high prices and the sale prices keep on dropping every two weeks and then every week. So much so that you end up buying tops for £9.99 that you previously paid £20, or more, for! Not cool Zara. So I always wait till the very last few weeks and have a browse.

I didn’t like much in terms of clothes but did end up buying some amazing accessories!

The one I am wearing at the moment is this dragon pendant which I bought for £5.99 (bargain!) it was originally for £20 or something ridiculous like that. I love it because its stylish, really adds an edge to your outfit and can jazz up a plain T shirt. It’s quite eye catching so really demands attention. It’s slightly heavy but then at least it’s not made of cheap plastic 🙂

So what’s your sale shopping been?? Share your bargains and tips! 🙂 till the next one lovelies xxx

Sooo!! looks like I was in a deep slumber… a hibernation of sorts. Now that summer is around the corner, I feel like I’m feeling alive again. Hah! I’ll save you the dramatics! I guess it was a combination of being lazy + too much going on! But I’ve kicked my back side. I’ve invested a lot in this site and my work and I should not let anything stop me! Found this awesome inspirational quote (via breakfastatyurmans.tumblr.com) which pretty much sums me up! 😉

Nail Art of the Week: 

I did not realise how EASY it is to do your own nails. These tutorials are God sent and thank you to every one of you who does them and puts them up for people like me!

Hairstyle of the Week:

I LOVE this bow hairstyle. It is so cute and perfect for summer. A bit too cutesy but hey! some times you want to look like cute even though you may be a raging devil inside! haha! 😛

Shoe ADDICT:

Ok so I saw these Caroline Issa X LK Bennett (collaboration) heels and DIED! Love the pom pom detail at the back and the colourful embroidery which also reminds me of the Pakistani outfits I have. These heels are perfect for the summer, worn with a pair of skinny jeans/trousers or a flirty dress. Très Chic Daah-lings! 😉  

You can shop the whole collection here!

What Ash’s heeled sneaker couldn’t achieve, Isabel Marant’s high top wedge trainers did! Now every where you go, whether its ZARA, Forever21, TOPSHOP, ALDO etc- they’re all stocking similar versions. I managed to get my special editions ones from ZARA which are almost the same as Isabel Marant except that they’re not! 😛 But hey I don’t have £400+ to spare on those shoes so I have to settle for the next best. If you are intrigued, check out the prices of the Isabel Marant’s high tops on eBAY and your heart may just temporarily stop beating.

To be fair, these shoes aren’t everyones cup of tea so please don’t buy them just to seem “fashionable” because they can also have the opposite affect!

This is how I styled mine:

You can shop similar high top sneakers from ZARA and other high street retailers. If you’ve got extra money to spare then ASH is also doing some funky ones (bottom two).

Let me know your thoughts and how you’re styling yours if you’ve bought them! xxx

I am loving Zara this season because everything they are coming out with is trendy, stylish and makes you want to buy it!!

So this leather sleeve grey coat is my current favourite- it’s become my wardrobe staple. I’ve been wearing this with pretty much everything I own in my wardrobe or that will go with it.

LOVE.WINTER.FASHION! Xx

When updating your wardrobe, it’s not always an overhaul you need. You can easily spruce up your whole look by adding key pieces to your wardrobe. I recently shopped at Zara and after a long hiatus, at River Island. I bought some great items from both stores that instantly make my outfit the focus of attention.

Items I bought from Zara:

A red Zara jumper from TRF
A pair of skinny jeans
A jacquard print jacket from TRF
A Leopard gem encrusted necklace

Shoes I bought from River Island:

River Island Saline Studded Boots in red

Items you may already own in your wardrobe:

Bright coloured trousers
Faux leather leggings
Red heels
Beige boots

Now what I have prepared are more than 5 looks (and counting!!) that you can have with these items. With limited cash flow and everyone wanting a piece of the latest fads, it’s time to get creative ladies!! So here’s my take on what I bought and how I intend to wear it. The great thing about the jacquard print jacket is its multicoloured and can go with bright colours like electric blues to subdued beige. Dress it up with a dress or dress it down with a pair of skinny khakis- there is no compromise on style.

Here you go ladies. I hope this gives you inspiration for trying different looks with key pieces in your wardrobe. Enjoy!

Please keep on reading my blog and spread the love!! Xxxxxx

When it’s Winter time, I can’t wear an all black outfit. Imagine you’ve eaten a full buffet and then you go and have a 3 course meal- OVERWHELMING!!!

I like to break mine up with some colour- be it a top, shoes or the accessories. Otherwise I may feel as if I’m going to a funeral. No offence to anyone who loves wearing black- it’s just me who can’t handle it.

So here’s how I broke my black streak.

Shoes: New Look
Black Leather Jacket: Lungta De Fancy
Leather effect tights: Miss Selfridge
Bag: Prada
Purple jumper: Zara

P.S: I’m not usually this serious :p

+ high-res version

 

Anyone who follows my blog knows I hardly do any posts on other people. You must think, God! she must love herself too much. Where it is true I do love myself 😛 (I JOKE!!) I never wanted my blog to become one of those run of the mill street style blogs. Yet I find myself admiring quite a few girls who dress so well yet seems like they hardly put any thought into it yet managed to totally rock out in their outfit!

One such girl who has hit my radar is Vicki (I hope I spelt your name right!!) Every time I see her, she looks amazing. She mixes different styles. Case in point, the photo I have attached of her outfit. From her choice of trousers (TOPSHOP), to her studded collar top, the denim shirt with the embroidered detail and the vintage brogues- this is what uber cool and hipster is all about people! She mixes all these individual pieces so well that they form a synergy rather than stick out like a sore thumb! Show some love for my friend here! 😀 xxxx

Hah! A cheeky way to turning around that jacket potato joint Spud-u-like. Don’t sue me!! 😛

So tell me. Is it just Zara or every where I look, they’re going crazy about studs?! Well not that I am complaining because I am loving the details of studs on jackets, shoes and tops! Obviously I had to indulge in some stud-lovin’ too. Bought these beauties from Zara for £69.99. You should still be able to get your hand on one if you’re lucky!! Click here to buy the pair. xxx

+ high-res version

Hello my fashionable readers! Yes I know I go M.I.A for a while and then re-appear. I need to keep my act more consistent. But hey that does not stop me from shopping 😛 So I bought this sequin top from TopShop in a sale and matched them with these mint coloured trousers I bought from Zara and these studded boots. Studs seem to be the “IT” part of the outfit at the moment. It is all about the studs- on the jackets, shoes, gloves, shoulder pads; you name it. So here I am being oh-so-casual at a friend’s.

Top: TopShop (sale)

Trousers: Zara (sale)

Shoes: Zara (£69.95)

Today was a day of chilling and strolling through the streets of London. Hey you know the London summer I kept on dreaming about all these months?? Well what do you know! Its finally here, if only for a week!! But hey! Better live it up.

Decided to keep it cool with a pair of Zara print trousers, pinned a flower to a plain T shirt to jazz it up and accessorised with my Prada sunnies, a beaded necklace and D&G bag for the KAPOW affect!! 😉 aaah! I got burnt! I think it will last me till whenever the next time Mr Sun will grace us. Xx
