A Little Jacket Goes A Long Way…

Clare Geeves

Due to my love of extra guac on my king sized burrito, my love for the finer things in life such as discounted vodka and life-sized Taylor Swift cut outs my budget for fashion is usually minimal.

That’s why this winter (the 2 months we have in Dubai) my staple in the wardrobe department is a little black jacket. Though my dreams are of Chanel my budget is that of Splash. I picked up this gorge faux leather jacket for AED 50…. Excuse me while I happy dance!!!!

*Side note… No the head phones aren’t plugged in….

Zaroob… The Place To Take Killer Instagram Pictures… Oh & Eat

To any Dubai-an worth a damn, we all know that you are judged based solely on your instagram followers, thus based on your self worth.

Apart from the cat pictures and humours quotes, my instagram was lacking a certain something – something to gain me followers, that is until I went to Zaroob… It is like a serial instagrammers BFF, thanks to the kitch, original interior and of course the cheap and cheerful food….

Forget High Heels

Bensimon

After back to back meetings and fashion forward… I was ready to throw my heels in the bin and scream from a mountain that I was banishing high heels (the devil created them I am sure of it) for good.

Thank God for my Bensimon White Slip Ons (available at Level Shoe District) these babies, look good, make me look tanned and most of all… Don’t make me want to kill myself every time I take a step!!!

Wear them with tight black jeans or as I do with an oversized shirt and jacket – Casual work wear at its best! Your feet will thank me later…

I Can’t Even Deal…

File this under fucking ugly trends that are coming back, which should be sent to hell. The same place the Kardashians souls happen to be… Ladies and Gents… I’m talking about the 90’s throwback that is *insert drum roll for effect* The Goth-y, Alternative, Tattoo – Like Chocker… Or as I like to call it… “Get that fucking thing of your neck you troll”

I can't 1

I mean come on! If you are bringing anything back from the 90’s it has to be every hipsters wet dream, Blossom’s hat collection! Which girl in the 90’s didn’t have this eye sore of a fake flower on their tres cool hat.

The New Must Do Pose On Instagram and Tumblr

The selfie is sooo yesterday, the beflie can only be done if you are part of the Kardashian Klan. The newest pose that will give you instant gratification from complete strangers, as they hit the like button over and over again is…. The “Behindfie” yes the title is a work in progress, but it is one pose that will garner you the right kind off attention.

Emoji’s are now in fashion…. This trend ain’t going anywhere…

The newest trend to make me feel older then I really am is the “Wear your emoji” from jewellery now to shoes. As much as I hate this trend I am in LOVE with these tongue in cheek flats from Miami-based Del Toro. Though the asking price is $340 *I balk at spending 20 AED on a bottle of wine* these shoes are tres adorbs – Though I will wait for the trend to hit the high street market and wait till I can get the same pair for £10 at Primark…. Just saying…. If you fancy yourself a big spender you can check them out here.

Gladiators Attack

What is better then finding a pair of Jeffery Campbell gold gladiators? Finding them on sale at a factory outlet for a quarter of the price. Mix the look with 5 Euro sunnies and cute striped dress from the flea markets of Milano and finish the look with a crisp white oversized waist coat from Fashlink and Voila you have a perfect street style assemble for less then 100 Euro!!!! Pictures courtesy of BF and of course Nikon!

And In Milano We Wear Maxi Dresses

After a very pleasant plane ride (Emirates is the best hands down) I arrived in the fashion capital of Milano and my first thought….. Holy Hell is it hot!!!

The history, the culture the punks, the hipsters, the old women that are so classy, but first my friends… An outfit post!

When in doubt wear a maxi dress and causal tennis shoes (I am obsessed with Bensimon’s – Level shoes district peeps) with far too much gold ghetto jewellery and a pastel cross bag! *Info on where to buy these high street bargains below). Also I’m using a Nikon for all my pics – This camera makes anyone look good (thanks to the high def feature)!

Cross shoulder bag – Dream Walk Dubai stunning leathers and the cutest shoes!!!

The New A/W15 Adidas Stella Sport Collection

Let’s be honest I don’t work out or go to the gym, my version of cardio is getting up from the couch to the fridge to see if anything new has arrived since the last 2 minutes I checked the fridge.

But the new Adidas Stella Sport collection almost (key word almost) makes me want to parade in the gym while I spend 5 minutes on the elliptical machine.

The use of fun jungle patterns, bright neons and of course the ever sexy Stella/Adidas logo (without having to actually cough out the funds needed to buy Stella) makes this collection perfect for the young and the young at heart! Who knows I might even give yoga another chance!
