DUBAI…….one of our favourite “Must Do”

When we say Dubai, the first things that come to mind are glamour and futuristic architecture. It is a truly unique place, one that human hands have been the main form of construction. It's a city with no limit and where anything and everything is really possible. In one place, you can be swimming with dolphins and in a part across town, you can ski on the slops in the Emirates mall. Enjoy panoramic views from the tallest building in the world. the Burj Khalifa. It seems almost a dream to travel through sand dunes and arrive at modern architecture...all nestled between majestic palms. We love the perfect balance between tradition and the modern achievements of human creativity. Here you will find a mix of modern cosmopolitan life and ancient Muslim culture. And yes, Dubai is definitely more open than other Middle Eastern cities but there are still certain rules in public and touristic place that you must respect. No kissing, no holding hands and you should cover your shoulders and legs. But it's not problem, respecting their religion is part of the enjoyment of Dubai. Indulge your senses in the strong Arabic smells, the delicious food and the mysterious music. And at night, Dubai will seduce you with its amazing night life, the glamorous restaurants and the beautiful Dubai Fountain that dances in rhythm with music.

It's of no wonder why the world's most famous designers have opened up stores in Dubai. The shopping here is definitely on the highest level you can ever imagine. Dubai women love their fashion and they have an insatiable appetite for all things glamorous, but since the only thing we get to see are their shoes, bags and exotic makeup...we must only imagine and envy what they wear under their abayas.
For packing to this exotic destination, allow yourself to go crazy a bit and have fun with colours and styles.
Let's start on this journey with some colourful, bright and neutral bags.

When we see the glamorous dresses of Zuhair Murad, we can't help but think "OMG!!". We love these dresses but the truth is that these kind of dresses are made for the red carpet and the super chic parties in Dubai. So, when you are in Dubai, indulge the movie star in you and dress to impress. And yes, these dresses are ridiculously expensive but that doesn't mean we can't dream. These dresses are inspirational...and honestly, we just love to see them...whether in real life or on the screens.
