Hi all! I’m currently in Hilton Head so this will be a pretty short blog post but with amazing clothing nonetheless. Today is another piece from Lubna Designs blazer collection. How chic is this trench coat!? I love it! It’s lightweight so it’s perfect for those chilly but no freezing Fall days or for the rainy days of Spring. You can shop the trench coat and the clutch at IL Moda or at the retail market place at the Fashion Meets Music Festival next weekend!

I hope you all are having a great week! I know I am! :)

Another amazing jacket from the amazing Lubna Designs. This is my favorite of the bunch (there are still 2 more to come next week so you can’t pick your favorite yet). I’m such a fan of the color navy. It’s so chic and plays the same role as black just with a little flair. I love, love, love the cut of this jacket. The unique layering of the front make this piece trendy yet sophisticated. I paired mine with a tan sheer button down a pair of white skinnies. These colors really complimented each other well in my eyes. And then my favorite part of this ensemble (besides the badass jacket) is my clutch! It’s a GiGi New York and I got it monogrammed with my initials. Funny story, if my parents names me Jennifer or Jessica (or any name that started with a “J”) my initials would be J.E.W. Just thought that was funny! :)

I’ll be on vacation next week, but there will be 2-3 blogs coming your way! Thanks for ready!

As promised, I have another amazing jacket from Lubna Designs on the blog today. Typically, I am NOT a fan of orange, but I couldn’t get passed this beautiful burnt orange color on this blazer. The cut and fit of this jacket is amazing as well. It can be dressed up for work with a pencil skirt or dressed down in some light wash skinnies and a heel like I did. It’s such a versatile piece that will be perfect for fall.

Let’s talk about my accessories for a second. This is another gorgeous bag from Tohni Bekka. I’m seriously obsessed with her stuff. Every bag is to die for as is this Urdun Jewels hand bracelet. It compliments the balzer so well! Both the clutch and bracelet can be found at IL Moda.

Thanks for tuning in readers! Until next time!

Line to Love-Lubna Designs

August 12, 2014 — 2 Comments

I am introducing a new series to my blog, called “Line to Love”. I will feature a brand/designer for a week or so and speak about why I’m obsessed with their designs. This week I’m featuring Lubna Designs. Lubna Najjar of Lubna Designs is an incredibly talented designer in Columbus. I met her last year during CMH Fashion Week, and was thoroughly impressed with her collection. I covet all of her ready-to-wear designs. They’re all very chic and sophisticated. This week I am covering her brand new blazer collection and I seriously love every piece from it.



I am in love with this blazer. Oversized is so in and I thought this jacket looked so trendy and chic paired with jean shorts and a simple tank.






This clutch, though. This clutch is by Tohni Bekka and I love every single one of her designs. The leather is so soft and handpicked by the designer herself. I will be featuring her in a “Line to Love” very soon. Also, shout out to my awesome roommate for letting me borrow her Kate Spade watch!

A few months ago I was approached by Lubna of Lubna Designs to come on board her new company, IL Moda. I was more than excited but wasn’t fully sure what IL Moda was or what I would be doing. I did know however, that this woman was highly intelligent and had her so called ducks in a row so I knew being asked to be a part of IL Moda was something I needed to jump on.

IL Moda is a fashion PR showroom. It’s kind of like a boutique, but on steroids. IL Moda represents a variety of brands including 5 local ones that you can shop at wholesale prices at the showroom. However, it doesn’t stop there. We also specialize in media outreach to celebrities, bloggers, and publication to get the word out about each brand. We’re constantly celebrity gifting, reaching out to buyers of major department stores. Most of what I’ll be doing is blogging about the brands and doing write ups about each brand to send to buyers. Good thing I like to write!

We had our IL Moda launch party in the courtyard of the Greystone in the Short North where our showroom is actually located. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and the who’s who of the Columbus fashion scene was there, including Mayor Coleman! :)
Be sure to download the IL Moda app from the app store and make an appointment to view Columbus’s only fashion showroom!
