As many of you guys already know, I went to Dubai not too long ago for Fashion Forward. If you have forty minutes to spare, here’s a recorded conversation with my beloved Sofia Guellaty, who is Style.com Arabia’s Senior Editor.
Y’all know me and my taste — I usually love anything AND everything colourful and embellished but lately, I’ve been toning it down big time. I’ve been stockpiling a rather disturbing amount of white items in my closet over the past few months. My obsession started last year but now it’s gone full force. It’s mildly disturbing actually. Whenever I go to stores, I usually make a beeline to the white section if they have it. Before leaving for Dubai, I bought this nifty “X” Alexander Wang sweater. I feel like there’s something chic about white clothes. It makes you look clean, pristine and of course, effortless. Yes, I know the white memo arrived late in my inbox, in any case, I’m loving this ‘new’ look on me.
I don’t know what possessed me but I bought this really cute Chanel bag when I went to Venice two weeks ago. It was love at first sight. It fits all my life essentials, plus, it’s a classic “non-classic” (since it’s not a 2.55 or what have you) if you know what I mean. Took it out for a spin when I visited the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. This is my second Chanel bag in a span of three months. I’m still recovering from the sticker shock of my Chanel backpack but you know what, when you see something cute such as this, it’s a no-brainer…
