Zara Jacket and Dress

 I get my daily dose of WHOWHATWEAR like most fashion lovers and this one I had to share.  This trend report image is from their site; just click on the image to be directed to the article.  It’s lovely to see modest fashion being highlighted, with floor length maxi skirts and dresses.  It’s all very feminine and ‘romantic’; very ladylike.  I am loving Rachel Roy and Kasia Smutniak’s ensembles. Have you come across any fashion looks that are on the modest track? Share it with the rest of us and email me on

I was invited to attend a styling event at a new boutique in Bahrain, FMH.  FMH is a very unique boutique in Bahrain and stocks a lot of great labels! Some of the brands there are DL1961, Bjorg, Muubaa, Jerome Dreyfuss, Finsk, Equipment and a whole lot more. A lot of other fashion bloggers attended as well, which was a great chance to meet the other local bloggers.  We were asked to go through the boutique and create an outift.  There were 2 models there and a photographer to capture all the images and have all the blogger looks posted on their FB page. The task sounded simple but was quite tough to decide on just one look when there were so many fab outfits I could create.  I wanted to create a look that I would wear.  A look that would be as modest inspired as can be and styled with and without a scarf.  I loved the studded jeans by Dimitris Zoz and the gorgeous geometric ring; actually I loved the whole outift!! What can I say .. am a rock chic at heart 😉 Sorry the images aren’t so clear am sure there will be clearer ones on the FMH page.

Hope you like it 🙂

I am absolutely in LOVE with Reiss‘ new collection for Autumn./Winter12.  When I saw the lookbook in the summer I was giddy with excitement but nothing was out from the collection at the time.  Reiss have really upped their game and revamped their image.  Below are my favorite picks and as you can tell there is a lot I love.  Autumn/Winter collections are usually ideal for us fashion lovers looking for conservative ‘modestified’ styles.  I just adore the trouser skirt … ❤ Now if only someone do something about the weather here in the Middle East so I can wear all this stuff!!!!
