Spotted On The Runway

We have been keeping our eyes on the Fashion Week 2012 runways and we definitely like what we see with the fashion trends. There were lots of neons, prints and a combination of solid and print separates.

What we love the most? Definitely the Palazzo pants. We love how you can dress it up or down and make it work with the tops already in your wardrobe.

Shirt length is no issue at all, either! Go for belted tunics (which are totally in as well) or collared shirts tucked in or full length. This piece can be stylized endlessly! 

Choose a sparkly top to go with a smartly tailored Palazzo for a high end night and a sophisticated look or a breathy cotton Palazzo for a comfortable but on trend look, pair with cork wedges for a summer day out in the sun. 

Versatility is key to dressing up smart, and with these pants you can do no wrong! 

And if you're looking to add a Palazzo pant to your wardrobe: be sure to check out quite the hot selling one we have available at our stores, or check it out online here

The 'I Never Felt this Way' Pin

We’re back with another super fun edition of Daaman video blog and really excited to see what you think of this cute flower brooch. This time we are using felt (and oh there are SO many amazing colors that you can choose from!) and a rivet button. Try this very simple technique for making this brooch, which you can use in a variety of ways: pin to your clutch, neck scarf or even your hat in the winters! Special shout out goes to Aqsa, our resident flower person.

-Grab you favorite color in felt, 5-6 inches in width

-Draw flower petals and cut out the design

-Sew the felt piece throughout

-Pull thread to bunch up the petals together

-Pin rivet button in the center

-Cut out a round felt piece and attach a pin to it-Glue to the flower cut out to finish off the pin!
