Key Item: Sleeveless Jacket

The jackets got a new look this spring summer of 2013. For those who love to wear jackets but avoid it in summer time, the solution will be to grab scissors and cut out the sleeves. You might be thinking: Finally an easy DIY project! isn't it?

So, which are the jackets that you should take into consideration? According to the runways there are three essential pieces: Tailored blazers, denim jackets and bikers. You probably have one of these in your closet, therefore, don't hesitate to give them a new shape.

The tailored blazer is a classic piece but sometimes it could be boring, unoriginal, uninteresting, monotonous, lifeless, ... etc (Oh My God! I didn't realise that 'boring' has a lot of synonyms). In order to grant it a modern appearance you can alter it removing the sleeves. To style it, wear a white shirt or go for a plain tshirt, and pair it with staight trousers.


IN HER CLOSET: Umm Kulthum

Can you imagine a room full of thousands of people holding their breathe, everyone is glued in his seat, waiting in a creepy silence for something to happen, well it's not easy to achieve! But this scene was only possible in a concert performed by Umm Kulthum, an arabic singer who is the Idol for many generations, even if I was born after her death, it didn't stop me from appreciating her songs.

Did you notice that in the old times, a lot of songs were more than 9min but it wasn't enough, however now, the song of 2,35min bores you to death, the same lyrics are repeated again&again nonstop! Umm Kulthum succeeded by winning the heart of millions of listeners. She enchanted the arab world with beautiful songs that will last forever in our ears and hearts, she also left behind a legacy that'll be a reference to many aspiring artists.
