Elysian Closet

My friend and I had this dream of opening up our own store which sells trendy clothes and fashionable items. We have not realized this dream yet because of some constraints such as the place where we could open up a store, budget-wise, we still cannot afford to open up a boutique and we cannot afford to incur losses.

But I told her we can start small by opening an online store. We have found few suppliers who could give us high quality products but not so expensive so that we could still sell it at a lower price compared to other online stores. So we both invested time, money and effort to this little online shop and we really hope it will work out well. We started last October 1 and so far we have sold more than half of our items already.

The tops and origami skirt I am wearing in the photos below are just some of the products we were selling. Yes, I choose to sell trendy clothes that I, myself, would wear wherever I go.

The Perfect Wood Watch

I celebrated my 30th birthday last week and I am glad that a lot of people remembered and greeted me. But before my 30th birthday, a gift arrived at my doorstep. A Wood Watch, a Jord Watch, the 94A-Cherry specifically. I am not the kind of person who collects a lot of watches and wear it whenever I feel like wearing it. I am the kind where in I got only one or two time pieces that I can match whatever outfit I am wearing. Having the Jord Watch makes my fashion life a little livelier.

What I like most with my Jord Watch is that it matches my necklace and my rings that I wore everyday. I do not have to worry about my looks or if my outfits and accessories matches because having a wood watch simply makes me look great. A lot of people have seen me wearing my wood watch and they kept on asking me where did I get one. I simply lead them to the online shop where I got mine because they were amazed not only by how it looks but the materials that was used.

Wood watches are so trendy these days, and I am glad that I am one of the pioneers in owning one. I will e posting a lot of fashionable photos in the coming days wearing my wood watch from Jord Watches so keep coming back.

5 Tips for Buying the Perfect Kaftan

The kaftan has been worn for thousands of years by multiple cultures around the world. If you’d like to get in on the fun, here are just five things to consider before buying one.

1. Look At Its Cut

Even though kaftans are worn the same way, they can have drastically different cuts when it comes to waists and necklines. For example, some are pinched around the middle for a fitted look while others flow freely around your figure. Some go down to the floor while others stop around your upper thighs. Make sure you’re buying a kaftan that flatters your specific body type.

2. Examine The Embroidery

The sfifa (needlework) of a kaftan is one of its most important attributes. Many are stitched by hand, like the kind available at CraftsVilla, and the more elaborate type can include everything from beads to gemstones woven into its fabric. Never buy something mass-produced. Always look for that original touch.

3. Mind Your Colors

You can find a kaftan in all sorts of colors, patterns and designs, but remember that certain hues have meaning beyond just “a pretty shade to wear.” In certain cultures, for example, green is reserved for weddings. If you don’t want to be mistaken for a bride while on vacation, make sure you understand color meanings before you go.

4. Have A Budget

A kaftan can range from ridiculously cheap to bogglingly expensive; it all depends on the type, brand and degree of detail in its manufacturing. You’ll want to look for deals when shopping for a kaftan in order to keep the price down. You might also want to have a hard limit so you don’t get tempted by something gorgeous and out of your price range.

5. Research Its Retailer

How long have they been in business? Do they have a wide range of kaftan available? Are they a trusted authority when it comes to ethnic products, or do they strike you more as the exploitative type? Do your homework before buying from a kaftan company. You don’t want to give your business to a brand that can’t be trusted.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as you shop for the perfect kaftan. Don’t be afraid to browse multiple shops or try things on over and over again. You should be completely satisfied with your purchase before handing over your credit card!
