The holy month of Ramadan is upon us, and with it comes a plethora of Iftar options around the city. Living in Dubai, we are truly blessed with the diversity of cuisines on offer at an equally varied range of budgets to suit every kind of foodie.

If you are looking for a very Emirati experience, an Iftar at Barjeel Al Arab should not be missed. We were invited to the Iftar preview last night, and got a delicious glimpse into the colorful hospitality of the region’s past.

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!
