So sorry for the massive delay on updating the blog recently. Whilst Reem’s been busy travelling, I’ve been in the office working super hard, so between us we’ve barely had time to Instagram let alone blog these days. However, in light of my role at Faux Consultancy taking up the majority of my time, I thought I’d let you in on what it’s like a day in the office at one of Dubai’s fastest growing and (if I do say so myself) best dressed offices.
We represent some of the Dubai’s most prominent names in fashion such as Madiyah Al Sharqi, Mochi, Dima Ayad and L’AFSHAR. You would have seen us highlight some of these brands here on the blog from time to time too as Reem and I are such genuine fans. My days in the office differ constantly, which is one of the many reasons I love my job. One day I could be behind the scenes at a look book shoot for 12 hours straight, on call planning a spectacular event for a collection or product launch, or if it’s a more tame day, in and out of meetings or catching up on emails and organising social content.
Our office is one of the craziest, most fun environments I’ve ever encountered (follow us on Instagram here) and I wouldn’t have it any other way. On a regular day I’ll walk in at 10am, coffee in hand and begin going through the weekly press pages before checking up on our clients social media accounts, but if you follow me on Instagram, you would have noticed how easy it is for me to get distracted and start playing dress up with all the fabulous pieces we have in the showroom. What can I say? It’s the blogger in me!

My first and last post of my time here in Dubai. I can’t believe how quick two weeks has gone by and it’s almost time for me to come out of my social media reclusion and get back to reality in London. Spending the first two weeks of Ramadan here has been amazing and I’m going to miss the endless meals and staying up until sunrise watching french movies with Natalya (and Farrah)!
Here’s a simple look wearing a silk crepe top from Zara, my favourite J brand ‘photo ready’ jeans and of course the epic Céline Edge bag in cobalt blue. My trusty Alexander Wang Emma ankle pumps and a statement necklace from Swarovski complete the look.
Another quick snippet of one of my looks from vacation. It was so hot in Portugal that the only time to shoot was golden hour, but we couldn’t help capturing at least one or two shots of my new favourite top from Zara. So simple at the front and extra pretty at the back. More outfit credits below.
