Summer Gowns

Elie Saab
Summer gowns are all about freshness and easing of the darkness of the winter palette, and here in the gulf as soon as summer arrives wedding calendars start filling up so does the wardrobe,

By Lela Rose-(Exclusive) draped in a grecian way, yet the belt balances the look. the color is not too bright, but a shade that fits most skin tones,

By Carmen Marc Valvo- on shoulder dress, gathered fabric at the top to emphasize the waist. doesn't ned much jewelry, a pair of earrings and/or a bracelet will complete the look,

By Valentino- strapless dress, a dress that you should head to the beach before wearing, looks amazing with a tan glow, and the color <3

all the dresses are without embellishments so it gives you a chance to wear more jewelry, an edgy-less gowns this season it seems,

On Her Coffee Table

Ive always had this interest in coffee table books,love the cover pictures and the weight of these books make them feel special . Flipping them over every once in a while could be fun, but keeping them at the corner of the table gives the room an extravagant touch. They're not books to be kept for reading every word, but to be admired

Got this book as a gift from a friend at Bvlgari, and it is still my favorite, it has pictures of old extremely artistic jewelery
One of my favorite place in Dubai to shop for coffee table books is boutique 1, lovely collection they've got, they make a great gift for oneself or others.In my wishlist:

When in Lace,

Some eye catching pieces caught me lately, the Elizabeth and James S/S collection, once on a short, and the second on a T-shirt,although lace is unlikely found on t-shirts and shorts the innocence of these looks is enough to make you fall in love with these pieces,

The shorts are this summer must have, but both pieces can be dressed in many ways, like adding a blazer or keeping them as simple as they are,

Romantically playful,

Spring Summer Ads 2010

The beautiful Vanessa Paradis has become the face of Coco Rouge,photographed by Karl Himself. From the beauty AD to the coco Rouge,she looks pretty in any photo, black&white so Chanel,the handbags are "okay" but the photography wonderful,

The Balanciaga ads on the other hand are way different than any other ad, models are rotated in different ways,while the background is simple enough to make the clothing pieces pop up, I'm not sure if i love the idea or not, but I'm know the dress collection is great, looks better than the runway,

Yes Ive disappeared for a while, but here i am Back Again. For the last week or so Ive been in marvelous Tokyo, where nothing other than amusing exists, its perfect in every aspect, from its people to its roads. Maybe i didn't have enough time to mingle around every corner of its shops, yet i got the grasp of shopping in Tokyo, they have wonderful designers, plus u can find anything from classic clothing to colorful and Harajuku-ish. Walking through Ginza(the fifth avenue version of japan) i couldn't help but to be amazed on how brands buildings are done, the architecture behind it was genius. well, i can talk for a whole day about the beauty of Tokyo, but as i believe "a photo is worth a 1000 words'',
Harajuku street

A rehearsal wedding ceremony at the hotel, i almost shed tears but kept reminding myself that its only a rehearsal,

At the electronics street, they really do look like cartoon characters, cuteness

this is the last place you'll imagine id go but i did and surprisingly it was extremely interesting, the fish market

Bvlgari building at Ginza

Cartier building, Ginza

Not my favorite jeweler, but its sure my favorite shop front, classic door and modern full glass <3,

in one of the streets, i stood staring at this aged house, and it looks so beautiful(aged beauty) with all its almost wrecked wood,

Lady serving green tea at one of the markets, and btw, they have everything in green tea, Starbucks green tea frapuccino, green tea bagel, green tea cupcake EVERYTHING
This sneaker happened to grab my attention

i adore fierce wild animals, and guess who i ran into? handsome tiger =p

they have the cutest,adorable,pretty kids EVER, I almost took one with me,*Kawaii
a very pampered dog, it even has its own stroller, well its normal over there where dogs are utterly spoiled

Sushi Chef, delicious sushi from his aged wrinkled sweet hands,

A famous theater that now is getting demolished to build a tower instead, lucky me got the picture on its last day

Dior building, my ultimate favorite building of them all,

No its not the man, its about what hes carrying in his arms, a beautiful striped birkin, i thought it was his, but it turned out to be his wife's, *Unique


In Asakusa temple,

Pretty in her red kimono,
My old Tokyo tour guide,

I still cant figure out how people manage to wake up on their designated station in the underground, while they were in a deep sleep all the way. *Weird
