DUBAI


If you've been following me on Instagram, you would know that a couple of months ago I was holidaying in India & Dubai. Here are a few photos I thought I'd share from my Dubai trip...

  Sightseeing in Dubai Outfit:

Dress: *$80 (BCBG bought at a Sample Sale)
Flats: $49.95 (Zara)

 Outfit Total: $129.95

 Desert Safari Outfit:

Offshoulder Top: $29.95 (Seed)
Chambray Baggy Pants: *$79.95 (Seed)
Comfy Shoes: $5 (Local convenient store in Dubai just to wear for Safari)

Outfit Total: $114.9
* = sale prices

Accessorised with Prada sunnies and Kate Spade bangle and other bracelets. These accessories I wear quite often and they have more than delivered on their cost:wear ratio so I won't count them in the outfit total. Cool?!

Dubai was so much fun! Can't wait to go back again. There's something for everyone there. Especially shopaholics like me! And malls like Ibn Batuta aren't just great for shopping, their unique concepts make it almost a day-trip destination.

Signing off now that it's turned into such a long post. Hope you enjoyed this little glimpse of Dubai. Until next time...

Colours of this season

Marc Jacobs predicted last year that the colours of the seasons were going to inter-change. Summer was going to be heavy, dark, mostly black and white and winter was going to be soft pastels and neutrals. And if Marc Jacobs says so, so it must be. Neutrals, pinks, taupes and a little bit of blue for a pop are the colours of this season. And especially for us here in the southern hemisphere being in the opposite season from our northern counterparts, waking up to bloggers all over the world getting ready for Spring, we can't help but subconsciously be inspired by soft blush tones of newly blooming flowers or bright blue hues of a clear sky! And you'll see these colours everywhere! Not just in clothes, but in homewares, in gourmet food, in art, anything that is current. I'm loving this change! Can't wait to freshen up my winter wardrobe! Lucky Chadstone VIP night is around the corner.













 Can't believe I'm about to say this but...bring on winter! (I may regret saying this in a few weeks though)

Currently Coveting

Omg! I've just discovered the Blogger App! Thanks to my mum and dad!! (My last known address: Under The Rock, Off-with-the-fairies st., Dreamland) This is life changing! This will hopefully help me post more often, even if it's just short posts.
For now, here I am, sharing this new find I'm currently obsessed with. But my champagne tastes aren't supported by my beer budget! 


This cover up from Perniaspopupshop.com by Indian designer Urvashi Joneja reminds me of the Armani dress Naomi Watts wore to the Oscars, although I found this much much before the Oscars. 


The half-dress/cover up idea is so unique! And the black and white geo print is bang on trend. Wear it with a plain jumpsuit, little black dress or even shorts and a tank and add instant glamour.

For those looking to expand their online shopping options: Pernias Pop Up Shop is an Indian High End Multi-designer retail site. So if you are looking for some bollywood inspiration or just a quirky outfit this is a great site to browse through. And shopping is safe and easy, I've bought before from here myself and had no problems.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition

If you missed the JGP Exhibition on tour at NGV that ran from Oct - Feb (how could you?!) I urge you to catch it somewhere else on its tour (next stop Paris, then Munich). It's so totally worth it! Goes without saying that the man and his art are inspirational, but certain features of the exhibition like the talking, blinking, smiling mannequins are as freaky as they are awesome. JGP never fails to surprise and shock all at the same time. And although pictures speak a thousand words, the photos that I am about to share just do not do justice to the amazing detailing on each piece showcased in this exhibition. But just to give you a taste of this crazy, genius' work here are some photos I took at the National Gallery of Victoria.
