Vintage galore

Being an expat is interesting, especially in a city like Dubai where one has the opportunity to brush shoulders with other nationals while being able to explore the culture and beauty of the hosting country.  But once in a few years the usual renewal of visa, drivers licence, residents id and all that jazz brings us to the government offices or agencies and I normally try to ditch my jeans when I visit the offices. 

So here I am today, this time on the way to settle my house-maid's visa.  She has decided to stay on for another year and we are grateful for that.  This would be her third year with us and we like having her around as she is an honest person with good heart.  We are very lucky to have her and truly appreciate her willingness to stay.  

Thank you, R!







Notice the gold cuff?  This vintage baby here just arrived from Soda Renee a shop on Etsy.  I was attracted to the 80s look and texture.  Plus the gold chunky cuff is so in fashion now (thanks to JLo) that I couldn't resist grabbing it while it's still there!
