I can be a nutter at times and live in my own world of colours, I can even dress like a rainbow. I do believe life is beautiful in colour, which all sets a mood for you. This time I had my wee eye on a fab little designer in the Middle East who just spoke to me through her designs, Dar Al Hazar.
For some people they think this might be too loud, but being in Scotland where sometimes its just dull for a week to a month- this piece just seems right. This piece looks great for any occasion through the year. Dar Al Hazar is a Lebanese designer based in the United Arab Emirates. I had the privilege of meeting her at different pop up events from the Dubai Ladies Club to Eventra during Ramandan. I tend to find some of the independent designers or boutiques a wee bit over price but with her the quality matched the price.
I know it sounds difficult to wear such a bright coloured piece but a simple look can be changed with just one piece. I would wear it to events with trousers or jeans and a pair of heels, or a plain dress like a black, white, grey or any colours . Accessories are really not needed , a pair of earrings is just the right touch.
You would think with buying this in Dubai I would do the photoshoot there, but I do it to the city I call my home, Edinburgh. On a beautiful sunny day or even on a dull one I would some how put this look together. I love this piece because the designs on it reminds of bulooshi designs that we use in Oman on some of traditional outfits. It makes me feel closer to home !!
