Today is a special throwback to 1966, when the Algerian-born designer, my favorite Yves Saint Laurent revolutionized fashion and dropped the famous smoking alive: a tuxedo suit of velvet or wool—black-tie menswear reinterpreted for the female form.
As for the last couple of seasons, the androgynous look is back stronger than ever..and I just love it! There's nothing like wearing a very beautifully cut and sharp outfit to step out of the house and feel as powerful as ever.
My heart fell for this beautiful black jumpsuit from Maje Spring Summer 2014 collection. I love that it has a round collar in satin, reminding us of the classic tuxedo. There are also the tuxedo satin lines on the sides of the pants. I'm a jumpsuit lover and this combination of the menswear classic on a comfortable form of clothing makes the perfect balance.
I don't know if you're an adept of the black smoking but it's definitely a must-have in every lady's closet. Whether you chose to go for a tuxedo blazer or a total tuxedo look, it will be a great choice for important work meetings, a fancy lunch out with your stilettos or the most random date to a cosy restaurant.
I am wearing: black jumpsuit with satin details from Maje SS14, black suede pumps from Gianvitto Rossi, a silver box clutch from my mom's closet and a metallic dark silver bustier underneath the overall to create an interesting contrast.

Thank you Crisma, we can't wait for more posts! Fashionably yours,
I was very happy about everyone's feedback regarding this new category! As promised, here are more fashion posts from Jana Ezzeddine on how to fashion up your closets.
For her second post, we go into details on how to correctly revamp your closet. However this time, the main focus is on the colors! I don't know if you personally color-code your clothes but surprisingly, as messy as my closet can get, I do color-code it! Whether it's my jeans/pants' section or my dresses/tops. I won't write and babble more, checkout Jana's intake on the subject:
Color and type coding your clothes is probably the easiest way to both sort out your wardrobe and figure out what pieces you need to buy on your next shopping trip. Without a clear layout of your clothes, you can’t see what skirt color you are missing, or if you need another skirt in the first place.
After you de-cluttered your clothes with the help of our previous post, moving on to this phase will be simple and fun!
First you will need to figure out the color coding method that suits you best. You can personalize your color coding system depending on your character and style, but here are the most effective ones:
1- Light to dark (or vice-versa): start with whites and pastels and make your way to darker hues such as red, navy blues, and eventually black.
2- ROYGBIV (roy-gee-biv): follow the colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. A lot of stylists prefer this method as it provides great contrast between color groups. As for your neutrals; whites, blacks, grays, and browns, they can go before or after the ROYGBIV’s.
For your patterned and multicolored pieces, you can label them by their most dominant color and incorporate them with your solid color pieces, or you can create a special section for them…your choice.
Now that you have become familiar with the concept of color codes, you can hang or fold each clothes type according to the system you prefer. Start with jackets, move on to shirts and so on…you will end up with a color/type organized closet that will help you get dressed faster and easier!
Stay tuned for our next post that will answer the ultimate storing question: to hang or to fold?
Thank you Jana for this contribution, as the summer is at the doors, it's about time I take a reorganize and revamp my closet!! We're excited for your next posts! Meanwhile, make sure you follow Jana on Instagram: janaezz.
Good morning monday! I've had quite a hectic time last week between family attachments and loads of work deadlines, I'm wishing this week will be a bit easier!
Here's a throwback to the last three episodes from my Nestle Fitness Web-show...I love the themes of these episodes. Make sure to watch them for tips on healthy hair and radiant skin, ideas on how to accessorize your cocktail dress but also tricks on how to eat well on a night out!
Enjoy them :)
Episode 4:Radiant Skin and Health Hair: Episode 5: Eating RIght On A Night Out: Episode 6: Celebrate with Lana The End of The 14 Day Program:
I haven't had a minute to myself since last december. My schedule is getting more hectic by the minute and I'm grateful for that even if it could get super overwhelming. With this unexpected trip to Paris for personal matters, I had the chance to spend some time by myself. Whether I was sitting in a cafe sipping on my favorite "chocolat viennois" (hot chocolate with whipped cream) or sitting on my bed binging on vanilla macaroons while reading a book on Lebanon's politics, the thoughts were all the same. Basically, all I was trying to do is reorganizing my work and my personal schedule for the coming months.
It's time to give myself more time for exercising every single day of the week, allocate more time to prepare my wedding (it's in 5 months and I have NOT started) and continuing on expanding L'Armoire De Lana while completing my upcoming styling projects with Nancy Ajram.
The coming months are going to be difficult and I guess that's also one of the reasons I'm very excited and looking forward the new changes. With my married life, I'm most probably moving to a new country, a new continent where fashion isn't necessarily the most developed domain. Hence, I will be completely changing my lifestyle, I will have to constantly be traveling to be up to my work while spending enough time with my husband for a stable married life. All of these challenges can be heavy on my mind but I can't describe to you how excited I am for the future. It will be a bumpy ride but I hope to continue to have you all by my side for all of the secret projects I'm cooking for you!
Meanwhile, await very soon a brand new L'Armoire De Lana with updated categories, new projects and a new website. It's all a matter of weeks!
As I keep on saying, stay tuned!
