2017 style recap!

2017 what a year! It was a bit overwhelming with trying to manage my work as an architect and having to move to Dubai for the job and deciding to start blogging on Feb. Due to a car accident in the beginning of the year, I suffered from disc in my neck but that did not hinder my decision of starting my blog. At first I was pressured and I ended up gaining around 10 pounds since I couldn’t exercise. Looking at the bright side though, I had the support of my sister and brother where they were proofreading my articles and I was lucky to have my best friend as a professional photographer to start with my journey.

It was such a wonderful experience to have crossed path with so many amazing new people that I met through social media, also meeting up with some old dear school and university friends .

I cannot say I managed to do all my bucket list or that I failed miserably. But hopefully this year by setting our priorities straight, it will help us achieve our goals. One of my main priorities this year is to take care of my physical condition by improving my fitness and changing my routine with good habits.

As I mentioned in my previous articles, major trend inspirations were elaborated this year and the revolution of mixing trends were incredible. This is a small recap of the trends: the inspiration from nature’s beauty, the revolution and renewal of the double G logo of Gucci, the use of metallic textiles, the fishnets material, the boot socks, the velvet and Pj’s suits etc. All of them lead to empowering woman by letting her express herself in outfits such as the campaign of Dior “We are all feminist”. The designers were able to transform the designs of everyday looks, to something divine and more appealing.

We may title 2017 as a “dress up game “, it was just headlines for the coming years in fashion industry guidelines.

Since we just said goodbye to 2017, I have created a collected post with all my favorite trends from 2017. In your opinion, which of those trends will be repeated in 2018? Let me know what is your favorite!

    Aww Sara I really like this, A little insight of the journey 🙂 – I really enjoyed all your articles this year, I think especially put together you can see how different they all are! Its especially nice to see the old Lebanon posts, like the Bechara el-Khoury Abandoned Palace, it had a lot of ‘soul’ – that old and new mix👌. Loved it! As for trends that will be back in 2018 – hard to say! But I hope we stick to the eclectic style. Ps, I hope to see you in a gown riding a camel this year ;D

    Honestly, I don’t have a favorite! I love all your outfits, they’re so chic b-ut all different. You stay true to your self and you always look happy. Not to mention, you find the cutest locations for pictures that make it all better. I can’t wait to see what you’re bringing to the table all 2018. I’m also so sorry to hear about the car wreck you were in and glad you were okay!

    So happy that I met you, even if it’s just through Instagram!
