Last week I was asked to join a very fun project with four other fashion bloggers in the U.A.E. We went to the Esprit flagship store in Dubai Mall, picked out our favourite outfits and were photographed in them. While shopping, a video was also shot of us with a little blurb about our personal style.

I must admit that ESPRIT isn't one of the stores that I frequently visit and I was quite surprised by what I found in the store. There is something to suit everyone's style and it was super difficult to choose JUST one outfit. In fact, if you notice from all of the blogger's outfit choices - everyone is dressed COMPLETELY differently based on their personal style. 

I am four months pregnant and I shopped based on finding something comfortable that would take me through my nine months in style. The leggings that I am wearing in the shoot were SO comfortable that I took them home and wore them for the whole week! I'm seriously considering stocking up on a few more pairs :)


Outfit Details: Knit Sweater, Starred top, tank top, leggings, Bag & Sunglasses - All ESPRIT

I highly recommend you visit an ESPRIT store - you are guaranteed to find something you love! :)

Amanda Navai Bags to benefit hunger in Syria

Sometimes Fashion designers design collections for great causes that make you feel good about owning them! Amanda Navai, the pioneer of genuine python bags, is the latest of those designers.

She has recently joined forces with the World Food Program to bring us four limited edition handbags that are sure to make a bold statement. Only 16 of these exclusive handbags will be sold with each style in red, purple, metallic navy and metallic blue. The styles were named after four of Dubai's most fashion savvy career women who provided the inspiration for the designs: 

The Louise Bag named after Harper's Bazaar Editor in Chief Louise Nichol

The Diala Bag named after TV Presenter Diala Makki

The Rosemin Bag named after Fashion Consultant Rosemin Manji 

The Alanoud Bag after Blogger and designer Alanoud Bader (aka Lady Fozaza)

Not only are these bags truly arm candy and very covetable but all profits will go towards feeding malnourished children in Syria. The sale of these 16 bags will allow 20,000 people to be fed through the World Food Program. I'd say that's a VERY worthy cause!

These exclusive bags will be sold at Bloomingdales, Dubai Mall starting December 8th. 
Call 04-350 5333 to pre-order your bag 
There are ONLY 16 bags so hurry!
