I have a never-ending love for color, and when it comes to personal style, I am particularly drawn to rich textures and patterns that have some form of cultural significance.
I am a bohemian at heart, and when I saw this outlandishly tribal jacket at Zara, I knew it was calling my name.
When it comes to fashion, I’m anything but mainstream. I’ve always been drawn to the bizarre, the bohemian, and oftentimes the overly loud and colorful.
Earlier this month I was at Pull & Bear, and spotted this black sweat-shirt. Nothing bizarre in that you’d say… till you see the sleeves! The sleeves on this bad-boy are coated in faux fur and makes the wearer resemble an exotic bird of sorts. Ofcourse I had to have it!
Cheers to the long weekend! And if you are about to indulge in yet another round of retail therapy, you might as well splurge your wallets someplace outside the malls and grab a few uniquely stunning bargains.
Numaish is back with the Numaish Winter Show, and it is taking place at Murooj Rotana this Saturday 10th December from 11 am to 9 pm. Skim through the stalls of some of the best upcoming fashion designers from India, Pakistan, the UAE and the United Kingdom and stand out from the crowd in stunning ethnic and Indo-Western outfits that are guaranteed to ooze envy in your social circle!
One of the talented designers to look out for at Numaish is Aiman Agha. Following the footsteps of her father who specialized in traditional embroidery, Aiman went on to graduate from NIFT Delhi. Her style pays homage to traditional Indian embroidery, yet somehow manage to be boldly modern and perfectly befitting for the woman of today.
What if I told you its possible to look a few inches taller and a few pounds thinner almost instantly? No, this isn’t another fad diet! With a few clever tweaks of your existing wardrobe, you really can cheat your way into a leaner, meaner look! You won’t want to miss these tips:
As promised, I am back with yet another spectacular prize up for grabs courtesy Numaish Dubai. This time, you have the chance to win this black leather charm bracelet by Eternity Jewels, a brand originating from Mumbai (India) specializing in handcrafted silver jewelry for the modern woman.
First day of the 4-day Eid weekend saw us window-shopping in Dragon Mall, and I decided to dress up my casual denims with the funky Auto Rickshaw shirt from Quirkbox. I bought this gorgeous shirt from Orange Boxy (yup! the same super-awesome online retailer who sells the uber cool Habibi coffee mug!).
When I saw this cotton midi-length summer dress at GAP, I knew I had to have it. It is lightweight and perfect for hot UAE summers, and I love the versatility of a simple silhouette.
I’ve worn this dress on shopping errands, to the beach, on a girl’s day out (see me wearing it in a previous post here), and even jazzed it up to be office-worthy under a contrasting well-fitting blazer.
Last weekend, we dined at Pharaoh’s, the new Egyptian themed restaurant at Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa. My trustworthy GAP dress did not fail me, and I dressed it up with a Zara statement necklace and the Steve Madden Hercules Sandals.
Kaftans, the modestly long flowing dress synonymous of the women of the Middle East, are also known as jalabiya and dara’a.
With the holy month of Ramadan fast approaching, the social calendar is filling up with Iftar invites and a stylish kaftan would make the ideal choice of attire.
The lovely ladies at Dalila’s Kaftans sent me this stunning red beauty, and I just had to share some clicks with you!
