Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week- Floral

Another of my favorite looks from Fashion Week was this floral trouser outfit, last styled here. I was on the hunt for a floral that was a little bit sophisticated, and the leather trim on the waist and front pockets was what did it for me. I kept the rest of the look simple, with minimal accessories and jewelry. 

Posting these pictures makes me really miss being in New York and in the frenzy that is Fashion Week. I am now following my favorite bloggers and their journeys through London, Paris, and Milan and I just don't know how they do it, all while looking amazing every day. #dreamlife

While in NYC my girlfriends and I realized that actually, despite the super cool (ha ha) image we like to portray, our favorite thing to do was to just hang out together, order in takeout, discuss philosophy and politics, and then watch documentaries until the wee hours of the morning. In light of that realization, I've been making good use of my Hulu plus account - they have a great selection! Also, I recently watched the documentary Rich Hill - and I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already. It is the story of three boys living in poverty in rural United States, and the circumstances they are faced with on a daily basis. I definitely teared up more than once. 

P.S. Don't forget to check out my newly updated Outfits section, for quick reference to my recent looks! 

And of course, many thanks for stopping by! xX

Love Zahra Favorite - Kalla

If someone really wants to say they care, they won't send you just any flowers, they will send you a floral bouquet from Kalla (ok maybe they do still really care about you but they just haven't heard of Kalla yet.) Most floral bouquets available today are fairly generic, filled with 'filler' florals and packed in ho-hum looking vases. Kalla bouquets are practically works of art, they use the most beautiful flowers and vases and even the packaging is gorgeous.

I also love that you can pair your floral delivery with wine or chocolate, and truly personalize the gift.

Here's what happened when I first received my very own Kalla bouquet...

I almost didn't want to open the box, it was just so pretty...

 But I did anyway, Adam's curiosity couldn't be tamed!
A beautiful addition to my dressing table, it lasted for over a week - maybe even two! Now I use the vase for my own arrangements!

Kalla recently opened up in Chicago, to great reviews, and I am positive they are going to make major waves. Check out the new Fall collection of arrangements from below!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week - Trench Style

A few weeks ago, I was perusing through H&M at Woodfield Mall, and I was drawn to this wool hat from their premium quality line of products. I am not really a hat person, I've always felt like my head is too small for most hats and I just look awkward in them. But when I tried this on I really loved the wide brim shape and the perfect-for-fall aubergine color. I immediately instagrammed a pic wearing it while in the store, and the overwhelming response was positive, so I went ahead and got it! 

During Fashion Week, I got the most requests for photos and random interviews when I wore this look. There is something about wearing a trench, loosely tied around the waist, that just pulls an entire look together. Also, the booties with cut outs are one of my current fall favorites. 

What are some of your favorite pieces for fall?
