FIT AND FLARE- A NEW ENTRY TO THE FASHIONESE DICTIONARY

This is the word I have picked for today’s post. Being Spanish and having lived so many years overseas I end up having a “Spanglish” as mother tongue and a lack of the appropiate word sometime.. what I studied  has nothing to do with fashion and so this is a great way to learn and share, in case you are in the same situation as me.

Ok, back our our fashionese Dictionary. “Fit and Flare” is an adjective used to describe garments that are close fitting at the top and flare out towards the hem. Examples include the “fit and flare skirt” or the “fit and flare dress”.

I have a skirt I absolutely adore that is of this kind. This skirt has been part of my staples since my Jamaican times because it is super comfy, covers your legs and in my case, I have the feeling it would protect me from the mosquito bites without being thick trousers. On top of all this, they look great as this siluette is very feminine.  They come back in fashion from time to time and I always buy 1 or 2..

Do you have some fit and flare garment that you love and would want to share? We will add it to the visual Fashionese Dictionary on the Facebook Fan page of the blog!!. Please send your look to whatijustlove@gmail.com or to the blog’s facebook page, the twitter or the instagram.

I leave you with the pics of a look I put together with my black fit and flare skirt. These pics we took after a lunch with some friends at Little Bangkok, a cute nice thai restaurant in JLT. Disregard the belly, the food was too good not to eat it all! Lol.

AHA!!! THE CREAM

WWW.WHATIJUSTLOVE.COMHi dears!

 

Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the Aha Cream. Yep! That is the name. I have been using it for already a month or even a bit more and I must say it is now part of my daily routine.

The two things I like most  of the cream….firstly, the texture, that is very rich. It feels great on the skin- like skin food- and secondly, the smell, like herbs, like nature. I like the smell, althought my husband not so much. It is a bit intense when you just apply it, but it dissapears quite fast.

I love the way my skin feels after using it, and so I recommend it very much. It is part of Herbline and it is 100% organic with ingredients from the Himalayas. Why I started to use it? Because this cream it is like an exfoliator and it helps even my freckles, it is great for dry skin -which is one of the Dubai dramas- and it promised rejuvenation and revitalization of the skin. All of it, fully compliant!.

Just yesterday I went to a Beauty Salon to do a facial with my dear Daniela. The place is located in the Garhoud area and it is called Patsi Collins- and the lady admired my skin!! After having so many issues with my skin and hair when I moved to Dubai, I felt so great that at least one of the two is getting fixed! 😉 Yuhuuuu!!

 

Lots of Luv,

 

Leli
