Maxi!

Good day, everyone! Good week so far? I hope so :)

Summer 2011BB (Before Blog) was my maxi season.  I was going around in maxis all summer.  Last weekend when I did a bit of closet cleaning, I found a few of my maxis that survived last winter's yard sale and decided to bring them forward.  This green Bamboo Beach maxi is one of them.  I bought a few maxis from this label in one of the boutiques here in Dubai where they sell beach wear, cover-ups and a lot of beautiful maxis. The back is quite revealing therefore I had to pair it with this cardigan for going around town but to the beach without is absolutely perfect.

On another note, I am looking forward to meeting some of my lady friends here this Thursday for a bit of brunch and karaoke session before we bid one another farewell temporarily as most of them will be leaving town for the summer. Watch out people, the Adele, Britney and Kermit will be on the loose! Mind your ears ;D











By the way many of you asked about my sales purchases from last weekend.  Well, I bought a few accessories, dresses and a pair of shoes.  I will feature these pieces from post to post along the way.  Have a good day and week!

  32. Really pretty dress.. the details on it are lovely! The clutch is great against the dress as it doesn't draw the eye to it but rather enhances the beauty of the dress. Fabulous necklace too! Has a bit of a vintage vibe!
    karaoke huh? No one around my group of friends does this anymore and I miss it terribly! Have fun!
