Gosh Darnit! We love us some INNOVATION people. We love us some crusader's of personal style that are instigator's of fashion not followers! Peeps like this make the trends!

Girl you seriously made our day! This is what this beautiful lady had to say about her SMASHING look

"Here is my look! I wear 7ijab but I'm capitalizing on the turban trend by wearing it as such! It's a fun way to keep my hair covered. I've also chosen to wear a man's dress shirt as a skirt ala Dsquared! I hope this makes the cut! " (IT SO HAS GIRLIE!!)

Striped Dress: H&M
Men's Dress as Skirt: GAP

The hottest 6 inches on any man.

Oh you dirty dirty readers you....
The hottest 6 inches are the from the top of the bottom lip to a few inches below the lapel.
 WE LOVE this ...keep everything in the details and a simple jumper and denim shirt pairing ends up looking fan-daba-dosey. Also this is shirt is not a high street purchase (Marc by Marc Jacobs) but this is a good way to get some mileage out of an expensive shirt. Pairing it under a jumper for winter, and over a white tshirt for spring, and as a shirt for summer. Great little the mustard yellow with the denim.

Winter Short

We love us some winter shorts...we actually got so excited by winter shorts that at one point in October (before our japan trip) we woke up in the middle of the night to write "BUY WINTER SHORTS-IN TERRY OR COURDORY" into our todo list.

Yes we are losers like that...

So we love these shorts spotted on a hottie fashionista...both the bag and shorts are from the awesome store that stocks some great designers! Love keeping it simple, pairing it with thick stockings and in Kuwait ladies this is the ONLY time you will be able to pull of shorts without getting stared at.
But still, do some of our more conservative readers find shorts and stocking offensive...before you all say YES...why are leggings and long tshirts (that cover all the non PG13 bits) ok but not shorts and thick stockings. Or for that matter...why are skinny jeans ok?

Jacket, shorts & bag :
Black top : Marks & Spencer
Boots : BCBG : Shoebox NY

Spotted! Some fashionable worker types prowling the streets of Shuwaikh, Kuwait on their lunch hour (erm lunch half hour actually). A word on all the girls...freaking high street heaven! The boy on the other hand is a perfect example of "Undercover Kashkha" . This (STRAIGHT!) gentlemen saunters into the office so
inconspicuously with his D&G and his Prada, and his MULBERRY breifcase...
we want to raid his closet while he is busy at work clickitting and clackatting away on his keyboard. Is that bad? Does this make us bad people?
Um no. Because we tried to trade our japanese bowler hat for his Mulberry breifcase a few times and he refused...
