DESERT ADVENTURES

 View from my apartment! Pretty spectacular waking up to this on a weekend.
 I have now lived in Dubai for 3 months!! I can not believe it!
 As well as my day job, I have been to some pretty good events since being here. 
One is My Ex wardrobe..
A friend of mine and her sister set up My Ex Wardrobe where you can buy and sell your second hand clothes. Here in Dubai the concept of the vintage shop is still quite sparse or really overpriced. 
So when I went to the first of theses events after moving over,I was so pleased to see something like this in Dubai. 
Their events run monthly and are always filled to the brim with bargins on designer clothing and accessories.It is always a perfect evening to share with your girlfriends, as well as clothing, there are other pop up stalls from local designers and craft makers and sponsoring from local beauty salons that offer free pampering sessions.

The 1st event I bought an Emporio Armani blazer for 200dhs and i thought this was quite a steal for a timeless classic piece.
Below is a shot of me and my bestie Chloe from www.thegirlthatlivesinthedesert.com from one of their events.

    To celebrate Grazia's 7th Birthday, Arabic Grazia threw a Gatsby themed party.
 Above is the little Grazia goody bag giveaway at the end of the night.This was held at the Palace downtown, right next to the Burj Khalifia. Everyone was dressed to the nines in feathers,fur and jewels, the bar was turned into a 1920s fashion haven.
The view from the bar of the Burj Khalifia at night time is pretty spectacular to be sipping cocktails whilst watching the night sky filled with the Dubai fountains.


                          
                                           
 I am a little late with this post as the Margiela madness was a few weeks ago now,
 
Missed the people queuing up at the Dubai Mall for 6.30am, for the doors to open so they could purchase any element, of what I would say has to be the cleanest and most replicated collaboration to the design house itself.
So I managed to bag a couple pieces of the collection, that had actually been reduced to a mere snip at 20dhs for the hair lock pendant necklace. Also the classic shape Dolly cardigan at 199dhs
