Dubai Daily – Day 22

Jacket, ASOS Africa; Cami, Topshop; Trousers, ASOS; Watch, Guess. As I was sitting today researching trendy hangouts in Paris for a Fashion Week feature – a.k.a. the kinds of places frequented by people who wouldn’t touch the word “trendy” with their ten-foot cigarettes – I found myself with a quite understandable brûlée-ing desire for some French […]

Dubai Daily – Day 21

Jumpsuit, ASOS; Cami, Topshop; Sandals, ASOS; Sunglasses, Vintage. There are few trends harder to pull off than the jumpsuit. And by that I mean quite literally. With all the assorted ties and twists, this outfit requires a serious investment of time (and large toilet cubicles). But once you’ve sussed out this style sudoku, this item of […]

Dubai Daily – Day 18

Blazer, Vintage; Top, Anthropologie; Trousers, H&M; Trainers, Dune. There have been many awesome things about approaching strangers to take my picture over the last few weeks in my foray into daily style blogging. I have met a few interesting people, I have perfected my one-sentence life story and I have had a great excuse to […]

Dubai Daily – Day 16

Shirt, ASOS; Dress, Agnes B; Shoes, ASOS; Bag, ASOS. Amidst the madness that is closing no less than three issues in one week (Grazia, Grazia Luxury and Grazia Bahrain, for those that are interested), it was something of a relief to escape from the office for a bit to attend the launch event for New […]

Dubai Daily – Day 15

Shirt, Vintage; Skirt, ASOS; Trainers, Dune; Bag, Vintage; Watch, Guess. Today I was forced to think very hard. Harder than anyone who works in fashion should ever have to, in my opinion. I was asked to describe myself in 30 words or less for the contributors’ page of next month’s issue of Grazia Bahrain. While […]

Dubai Daily – Day 14

Top, Adidas by Stella McCartney; Trousers, H&M; Shoes, Monki; Sunglasses, Vintage. Ah, that’s better. Here we are again at the office, with the flattering lighting and photography skills of my “willing” colleagues. And while there is nothing wrong with giving a fashionable nod to your icons, I appear to be taking ‘style reference’ to the […]

Dubai Daily – Day 13

Shirt, ASOS; Leather shorts, ASOS; Necklace, Anthropologie; Stain, Elizabeth David. You may note from my expression that I look a little concerned. You may also notice a dark mark on my otherwise pristine white shirt. This is courtesy of my recent culinary adventures – or, to put it in other words, because I was stuffing […]

Dubai Daily – Day 12

Skirt, Vintage; Sandals, ASOS. Hot dogs or… Oh wait, I think I’m doing this wrong. You might assume from this picture that I spent all day lying in the sun by a tiny pool, but in actual fact I spent the first half of it in, well, a larger pool. Followed by the house of a […]

Dubai Daily – Day 10

Jacket, Zara; T-shirt, A Question Of; Culottes, ASOS; Shoes, SUITEBLANCO. Oh dear, what are we on now – culotte number three, right? Although this particular pair seem to be experiencing something of an identity crisis, apparently unable to decide whether they are long shorts that have got a bit carried away or more of the […]

Dubai Daily – Day 9

Jumper, French Connection; Skirt, McQ by Alexander McQueen; Shoes, Monki. Oh look, there’s the back of my head. Not only did I set out today to prove that I do venture outside here in the UAE, I was also determined to prove my versatility. Hence the pensive pondering of the Dubai skyline. When not accosting […]

Dubai Daily – Day 8

Top, ASOS; Skirt, Vintage; Boots, ASOS; Bag, Maria Carla. You might be forgiven for thinking that my head only tilts to the left. And that I spend my days permanently fixed in front of the mirror in an impossibly white room. But I can look right, too. And down. I truly am multi-talented. (The mirror […]

Dubai Daily – Day 7

Shirt, Zara; Pinafore, ASOS; Shoes, Opening Ceremony; Handbag, Vintage; Watch, Guess. In my own personal version of back-to-school chic, I decided today to embrace the decade that style forgot – the nineties. Metallic mules, check. Pinafore very much like the one that I actually wore in the nineties, check. Handbag that my grandmother carried well […]
