Sweet Dreams in a Garden

I have some great items in my closet, that I barely get a chance to wear these days. It is not often that I get a chance to play dress-up, so I decided to put some of my things together from my closet and take an amateur photo shoot at my home in Dubai. The outfit is supposed to be sweet and classic. I think I pulled it off, but you be the judge of that! Now I'm off to afternoon tea! xoxo

Skinny Jeans

I love skinny jeans! But as much as I love them, I have a hard time finding a pair that fit me right. Either the waist is too big, or the thigh area too small, or the length is not long enough! Thank God, I was able to find a great pair at Stradivarius this past weekend. They are still a bit loose in the waist, but they fit right everywhere else. And I love the fact the fabric is stretchy. If you know where to get a great pair of skinnies or just have a fantastic pair of jeans....then please let me and the rest of us know. Share the wealth of fashion knowledge please! LOL

On December 29th, Samsaara Boutique will be presenting the new Spendthrift collection for Women and Children, by designers Falguni & Shane Peacock. Ten of Dubai’s cutest kids will walk the runway, hand in hand, with their socialite moms all dressed in Spendthrift!
The new Spendthrift collection is a bold and brash expression which only the Peacock’s can pull off; and by adding the kid’s collection they are presenting another dimension to their extensive repertoire. Unfortunately for some, this event is by invitation only, but if you happen to be one of the lucky one’s to have received an invite to this event…then this is one show you don’t want to miss!
I think it’s great to see young people getting involved in fashion. What do you think? Well, hope to see you there, at the cutest runway show of the season in Dubai!

You will love the couture and trendy collection Vallydez has for all you fashionistas who love to be different!

Kipling Fashion Show At Dubai Mall

The other day, I just happened to be at Dubai Mall (shopping :), when I stumbled upon a fashion show in progress. I wasn't sure what exactly was going on, until I met the PR person for the show. I found out that this was a runway show for Kipling's new bag and luggage collection! The models looked very cute sporting the handbags and toting the luggage down the runway. The best part of all was when I received a gift bag with a sweet little green Kipling clutch inside, and I wasn’t even an official guest! I guess it pays to be in the right places at the right times! Check Kipling bags out in Dubai Mall, and let me know what you think. Here’s to shopping!

Emirates Woman: Rihanna in The Diamond Issue December '09

Photobucket

If you haven’t picked up Emirates Woman December’s Diamond issue yet, then you are definitely missing out! This month the Queen of the Fashionista’s herself, Rihanna, is on the cover of EW, looking ever so fabulous. Not only is there an exclusive cover story featuring Rihanna, there is also 100 plus pages of “BLING” accessories that can fulfill every girl’s dreams! But Wait...Emirates Woman takes it even further by giving away a yellow diamond worth DHS 100,000 to one lucky reader. WOW…I don’t know about you, but I bought my issue already, so that I can win that yellow diamond and wear it to the Rihanna concert on New Years Eve in Abu Dhabi…
Hey dreams can come true!

Tc,

I'm Back with a Bang-Featuring Me in VIVA Magazine Dec 09 Issue


You all have no idea what I’ve been going through to finally start blogging again! Well, the HTML mess of it all is over, and I am back with a bang! LOL

This month I was featured in VIVA magazine (on the last page) as the December’s “Girl About Town.” I am so excited about this because this will invite new readers to my blog, (I hope), even though they forgot to mention the blog web address. I guess you can’t have it all, all the time! I’m just happy to have made it on the pages of VIVA. Make sure you guys pick one up. The issue has a lot of cool stuff in it for everyone to get inspired for the holiday party season. Let me know what you think…and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! xoxo
