I went on a two day trip to Armenia last week to attend a friend’s wedding and I wore this cobalt blue dress, which was the perfect dress for the occasion as the weather was still so hot. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
Last night I attended a fashion show for Moda Waheed who designs evening wear here in Dubai. Despite the brand not truly being my style of evening wear, I quite enjoyed some of his pieces and the experience of the show in general. We were treated to the amazing vocal talent Crystal and a surprise performance by a famous Egyptian signer, who was a guest of the owner and designer. I got to meet Mr. Waheed as well who was really friendly and down to earth and I absolutely had a blast attending his show.
The past few seasons we’ve been seeing a lot of the white-on-white trend and it’s a great way to steer away from the comfort of wearing black. I don’t usually purchase white pants or skirts – because hips – but I tried this white Oasis skirt in London and it didn’t look as bad as I thought it would. Remember to always try and experiment with different styles and colours but ultimately stick to what suits your body type and skin complexion regardless of current trends.
In the previous post I shared a #TBT style post for Boohoo recreating a look by using Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the city as an inspiration. In the first post it focused on her fun-loving and experimental side as for this second part I’m focusing on her more classic iconic fashion moments. Patricia Field is a genius for making the character seamlessly pull off so many different styles and even making the fashion in the show its own character.
I was asked by Boohoo to feature in their #TBT campaign and pick a style inspiration and recreate their look with items from the Boohoo online store. I immediately thought of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw, who’s style became iconic thanks to the super stylist Patricia Field. Her style is relatable to a lot of us because with all the ups and downs that her character goes through, her style adapts and reflects it. I’ve decided to split the post into two parts; the first one is inspired by her fun and experimental spirit which gave us a lot of her memorable outfits throughout the series.
Last week I turned a quarter of a century old (eek!) and one of my best friends treated me to an amazing girl’s escape to one of the best hotels in Dubai’s palm island. Anantara resort was the perfect staycation in a gorgeous setting. I took the chance to take out my latest ASOS items from their ‘escape’ inspired collection out for a spin. I absolutely love the pattern of this lightweight dress and white backpack, which is very handy and fits everything you would need it to.
It’s no secret that I have an obsession with designer shades and my newest Bottega Veneta sunnies from Vision Direct are definitely a welcomed addition in the scorching 45degree+ heat Dubai has been reaching lately. My rule with sunglasses is to definitely treat it as an investment and buy good quality pairs as cheap ones don’t really protect your eyes from the sun and might cause some serious damage. And who doesn’t like stylish designer sunglasses?
