Casual Sunday – Layering with a Turban

Winter is pretty much done here and it’s really sad to admit it but here in Dubai, we are just about a month or two away from some severe heatstroke months. So before it gets unbearable I wanted to show you all how easy it is to dress up a turban and keep it casual cool by adding a few elements of layering while the weather is still in our favor.

Casual Chic :Chiffon Trench Coats and Maxi Skirts

Outerwear is such a huge part of any Hijabi’s closet and with the return of the trench coat, it just adds more depth to the layering process. I managed to find a full length Chiffon Trench Coat in a soft Salmon Peach and is one of my fav pieces for the year. You just can’t go wrong with it.

A Playground for Fashionistas & Designers – D3

I headed out to D3 on Thursday 2nd April, the day that had one of the strongest sandstorms. I have never seen Dubai with such brown muggy skies so that just should show you how determined I was to attend D3, and I’m so glad I made it through.

I got there for about 10ish thinking it would be too late, and then when I saw the pile up of cars to the entrance I had a gentle reminder that this is Dubai, and everyone gets everywhere late !

There was a concert already taking place by the time I walked in, and there he was with the most gorgeous rustic voice, a performance by Mr. John Newman himself. Read more…

Street culture at Sole DXB

It’s been a while since I’ve gone out and checked out anything that’s hip or happening, yes motherhood does take a toll into one’s social life, but now finally a whole year later of trying to grasp between motherhood, work and balancing somewhat of a social life, I am now finally getting out there ! Yippee for me 🙂

Anyways, a girlfriend randomly mentioned Sole DXB to me, saying that it reminded her of being in NYC, my fav city, and it was full of pop up trunks, great clothes , mostly shoes – think 90’s cool Reeboks, high tops – and tasty food stalls. No, I could not resist and I’m so glad I actually paid a visit !!!!

I dragged my friend, Ms.VintageTeaPotQueen , an awesome T-shirt designer, to SoleDXB which was held at the Design District, and we were welcomed by the hippest hip hop and RnB sounds, a basketball court filled with adrenalin, and the coolest sneakers that instantly brought me back to my childhood.
