BTS: The Posh Fairy for L’Occitane Au Bresil

IMG_0021

My latest project for Posh Fairy was a shoot for the soon to be launched L’Occitane au Bresil; a new brand with a French soul and a Brazilian heart. Traveling through the waters of Brazil, Olivier Baussan; the founder of L’Occitane en Provence discovered rich and exuberant eco-systems with fascinating ingredient stories, this encounter of Brazilian liveliness with L’Occitane’s values inspired to create a new brand: L’Occitane au Bresil.

The concept of the shoot was obviously inspired by Brasil, the beauty, the vivid colors, and the tradition. After scouting a few potential locations, we decided to shoot at a nursery, and Home & Garden were more than welcoming of the idea, and offered us complete access to their showroom. I will be sharing the final shots with you very soon, as they are currently exclusive material to Styles Magazine June issue.

And lastly for now, I would like to bring your attention towards every person who worked with me on this shoot, the team was in amazing harmony and they made the entire project such a great experience. A big thank you goes to all of them.

When I Wore Sacoor Brothers

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited by Sacoor Bothers to visit the store and choose an item, or two, to take home. It was my first time at their store in 360 mall, and the variety of the collection surprised me. They carry women, men, and kids, and offer a great customizing service, and the comfort of personalized fit. Pure luxury without the staggering price tag. Coming to Kuwait straight from Portugal, these garments are made with the finest cotton and designed in style of amazing signature European cuts. The brand is the official suit supplier for FC Barcelona. Don’t you just love that? I do! And it also was spotted on celebrities like William Baldwin, Chris O’Donnell, Rob Lowe, and actors from Grey’s Anatomy donning the collections!

?????????????????????????????????????

I got this refined shirt that comes with the cutest little buttons. I love small details, they make such a difference with classic pieces. I paired the shirt with NewLook denim and Zara heels. I picked the shirt in blue, but they had a big collection of colors in stripes and checks and also plain.

The other piece that I picked was this gorgeous dress that I fell in love with the minute I laid eye on! A pink shirt dress that looks so vintage-y, and comes with the cutest black bow belt to top it off! I felt like i was coming out of a 1960s movie wearing it. And I paired it with Ralph Lauren blue python heels.

I will definitely be adding this brand to my shopping destinations, for both me and the hubby (their men’s collection is super stylish and sharp). If you are looking for a piece to stand out in your outfit, or a gift for him that you can customize, you must pay a visit to their store in 360 mall, 1st floor.

Fashlink: Middle East Online Shopping Site & Designer Fashion Store In Dubai

001

I stumbled upon this online shopping site while browsing the internet and I thought it was worth sharing; it’s based in Dubai, however you can shop per country and see the prices in your own currency, with no need to use the irritating currency converter for every item. What specifically caught my attention is how reasonable their prices are compared to many online shopping websites with the same quality. They carry multiple brands  and very easy to browse through; below are my favorite picks.
