Take A Walk On The Wild Side

Take a walk on the wild side and embrace your inner warrior…it’s time to get fierce.

No, not leopards – I’m talking about smouldering python.

Having endlessly dominated catwalks throughout the years, its no surprise snakeskin is forever vogue. So if you’re looking to turn heads with a luxe addition to your ever-growing wardrobe, check out SMR london (website/facebook) – brainchild of Ms Samar Sharbatly.

With a concoction of exotic python/crocodile skin, vibrant clutches and bang-on-trend spike bracelets, whats not to love?My favourite two pieces

How to wear?

Pair with a simple yet elegant a line abaya, 120 mm  patent pigalle Louboutin pumps, and well,  you’re set for world domination.

One things for sure…your friends will be hissing with envy.

Sequins as you’ve never seen them before


That tiny seven lettered word which remains such a mystery to women worldwide…

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve come across sequinned horrors and hideous fashion fauxpas.

Yes, i’m sure you’ve seen it too; form fitting, bulge revealing, vulgar eyesores…Alas! Rarely are sequins worn tastefully off the catwalk.

Suffice to say, i’m sure you can tell I have a deep aversion to sequins. I turn my nose up at those sparkly, gaudy, little baublesI shall not succumb.

Oh but I did.

All of my self assumed pompousness crumbled at the sight of this retro beauty..


Elegant but quirky, Saudi designer Effa al-Dabbagh (www.effa.ae) decided to tease with this gorgeous creation. A sneak peak from the forthcoming SS12 collection…

Without a doubt, a head turner.

As for me? I need help. I’m already envisioning myself in it running barefoot across carefully manicured lawns at a midnight party under the full moon with slightly dishevelled big hair…

Yeah, i’ve got it bad.
I’m caught…hook, line and sinker.

How would you wear it?

Well hello there…

So who am I?

Just your average twenty-something chick with a penchant for glamorous eye candy; from beautiful bags and dazzling brooches to luxe abayas, jaw-dropping jalabiyaat and skyscraper heels…sprinkle the odd beauty tip and make up review here and there…

et voilà…a blog is born.
