Monday Moodboard: Marbled

July 13, 2015

There has been sort of a marble revival in the last few years. Where we used to think that marble floors and countertops were outdated, now everybody is all up in it. The trend has transcended architectural boundaries and started popping up in home decor items, clothing, shoes, bags and even appearing on runways like Balenciaga, Kenzo and BCBG.

Add some marble to your life.

#AmaraLoves: Crowning Glory at Couture Week 2015

Elie Saab couture Fall 2015 backstage details

Couture Week is my favourite fashion season of the year. I mean, fairytale gowns, other-worldly pieces and exquisite details – what else do you need? While I absorb all the runway collections and hone in on my favourite pieces, one trend that immediately stood out to me was the use of headpieces on most major runways.

Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad and Valentino all used gilded, gold headpieces as finishing touches to their breath-taking gowns, while Atelier Versace opted for a more boho-leafy headband to pair up with their sexy, flowing dresses.headbands at couture week fall 2015 including Elie Saab, Atelier Versace and Zuhair Murad

#AmaraLoves: Gingham

July 4, 2015

I love that trends have a cyclical life and every 5 or so years something that you thought you would never wear again starts sparking joy. One of those trends is gingham. The checked print is widely associated with quaint country homes and style but, like with most things, the fashion world has managed to interpret it in numerous ways.

From exaggerated sizes, pastel shades and the classic white and blue, gingham has been popping up on street style stars, major runways and even interiors magazines. My favourite way to wear gingham would be a gorgeous maxi dress like Ulyana Sergeenko or sleek trousers like Ashley Madekwe.
