Have you heard about the Imposter Syndrome? It’s become an epidemic. It’s that little gremlin sitting on your shoulder making you doubt all the accomplishments you’ve worked so very hard to achieve. You start doubting yourself. When you hear the applauds you stiffen up thinking this isn’t for you. You start believing you are a fake, you start believing you are an imposter .
Desigual, the unconventionally quirky, colorful brand from Barcelona, has long been one of my absolute favorites. I love their riot of colors, their unique take on combining world cultures, the signature mandala motif, and above all, the brand’s take on non-conformance. Desigual is anything but a fashion sheep. Straying away from mainstream trends, Desigual may have many a ‘me too’ wannabes, but nothing comes quite as close to the DNA of crazy-cool cuts and colors that is so ‘Desigual’.
Come 2017, and the brand announced the launch of the ‘New Desigual’, a range that would appeal to all, including those who shy away from color. I for one was dreading it. I LOVE the brand’s take on color clashes; you either love it or hate it. Surely they cannot have something for everyone? If you too are a die-hard fan of Desigual, fret not! The new collection is bigger and better than ever, and includes 6 sub-categories of looks.
The new collection has a whole new range of exceptionally stylish jackets. I fell in love with the Desigual Diven Blazer. With a formal blazer-style cut, this jacket can easily be taken from a casual day out right into the boardroom.
As you can see from my recent posts, December has been a very indulgent month. The foodie in me is taking center stage, and its starting to show around the midriff big time!
The colour black really does hide a multitude of sins, and an LBD (‘Little Black Dress’) in my opinion, is a closet essential every girl should own.
I found this gem of a dress at Anotah, the rather quirky, outlandish fashion label hailing from Kuwait. Their collections are far from mainstream, and they never shy away from the use of unusual colour combinations. My kind of place I tell you!
This however, one is a plain, plain black.
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!
