who doesnt love a little sparkle in their life?! hell, i love a ton of sparkle. and although sequins are notorious for rocking the night away, i like to dab into them even when the sun is out. yes. i wear them during the day and although a ton of people may just be a wee bit scared with it coz “its way too shiny and way too dressy”, i have my simple ways into making it work.
dream big. shine bright. sparkle more…
i simply throw on a tshirt or a button down shirt (i wear mens button-downs coz they are the perfect oversized look) and pair them up with sandals or sneakers, and voila! i am good to go. believe me, it is fairly easy and looks super chic – in my books anyways.
i got a variety of these skirts, a few that i got from the mall but most of them are courtesy of my beloved tailor from down the street. i buy the material at fabric stores downtown dubai (they cost between 15-30dhs a yard depending on the kind of material and design – im a small gal so i only need about a yard) and head over to the tailors for about a few minutes of explanations, samples and fittings. and after just two or three days, these babies are rocking my closet!
