I am loving that velvet is back on trend this season. This fabric looks and feels good; there really is no other fabric like it. Soft to touch, and luxurious to wear, means it always hangs beautifully on all body shapes. Now, just because velvet is slightly heavier than other fabrics doesn’t mean you cannot rock it in the Dubai climate. We have found some must-have pieces that will be a perfect way to add velvet to your wardrobe.

Dubai Theatre Lovers Will be Thrilled about La Perle Move over Las Vegas, Dragone latest show is making Dubai it's home.
Growing up with the West End on my doorstep meant I fell in love with the theatre very quickly. There was (and still is) always a play, musical or act to see any night of the week. Dubai is now evolving into a theatre hub which is beyond exciting for me. DUTAC, The Madinat Theatre, The Dubai Opera and now……..La Perle.

Which Hair Length is the Easiest to Maintain Is short hair easier to manage?
As you know I have recently made a very big change……I cut off my long hair. Over 30 cms of my beautiful golden locks were chopped off and donated to charity. Never having short hair before, I was naturally a little nervous about my new look. What style should I chose? Would it suit me? How do I maintain short hair?
Full of nerves left me not wanting to trust my hair to any hairdresser in Dubai. The one place I did trust though was Pastels Salon. When I first contacted them about my brave chop, they immediately made me feel at ease. The talented stylist knew exactly what to do. After passing on some fab tips, I quickly found out how different short hair was to manage.
Where to Find Unique Designers for Your AW16 Wardobe This is the place you need to be shopping to get this latest must have pieces
A new fashion season is upon us and it’s time to reboot our wardrobe for this winter. I love mixing my pieces to create stylish work outfits. However, one thing I struggle with in Dubai is finding unique and local designers who create fashionable and wearable pieces. We know there are many talented designers in Dubai but unless you spend hours looking through Instagram they can be hard to find.
Well we now have the solution for you and it’s right here in Dubai Mall. Galeries Lafayette have collaborated with Fashion Forward (FFWD) to bring us fashion lovers something EPIC
The Chop – Making the Change from Long to Short Hair Blondebee is cutting of her golden hair in the name of charity.
The Backless Loafer – The Season’s Staple Shoe If you purchase one new piece for your wardrobe in autumn 2016 this should be it!
Backless Loafers? I am sure your mind is imagining all sorts of ugly things, like I did when I first heard about the shoe. This shoe has been hitting the catwalks for a while and I am liking what I see. I have been keeping a close eye on designers this year to see how they have been inspired by Gucci’s backless flat.
The result? Trendy flats that are perfect for the office. What is even more desirable is all the colours and designs they come in…you might just want to own more than one pair, from metallic to suede. I have even chocked myself how much I have fallen in love with this shoe.
The Backless loafers are taking the fashion world by storm for this autumn season and we can see why. They match with your cropped 3/4 lengths suit for work and can still give of that relaxed vibe with denim for your weekend wear. This backless shoe is smart, on trend and sophisticated, what more does a girl want in a shoe.
Truley a great alternative to open toe shoes for work when dealing with the Dubai heat. These are the shoes you need to invest in this season and we have found our favorites shoes that are available in the malls and online .
Healthy Indian Food That Will Delight your Taste Buds Govinda's is a great place to find tasty healthy food.
As a big fan of the Asian Sub-Continent cuisine, I feel like I have hit the jackpot living in Dubai. Every street you turn down you see at least one establishment offering such delights. I often crave this food for my weekday evening meal. Of course many of my favourite hidden gems are over in Bur Dubai and Al Karama, this becomes a problem when travelling from the other side of the city during rush hour. What should be a 20-minute car ride turns into an hour and half nightmare.
To my excitement, Govinda’s restaurant from Karama have opened a branch on Jumeirah Beach Road in Umm Suqeim 2. Now one of the tastiest Indian restaurants is a 10-minute drive away. This is the perfect mid-week place to dine out and there are so many reasons why.
Why you Should Make Your Own Office Uniform Can an office uniform be a good starting point for you?
Like Brunettebee I had jobs where I have worn an uniform. I found it easier as I didn’t need to spend time piecing together outfits in the morning. Now I love being creative with my wardrobe but there are days I wake up and have a mental block of what to wear. Along with this many females contact us about what to wear when they start their first office role. Why not get the basics in place first and create your own office uniform? For your first time working in office this is a great idea as you can add pieces to your work wear when you develop your own style.
We have the answers to all your work outfit dilemmas. So what do you do if there is not uniform to wear like your student job? What about creating your own office uniform.
