WHAT I WORE | RALPH LAUREN PASTEL PUMPS

So I was super excited by my sales purchase of the week – these bootiful lilac pumps from Ralph Lauren, picked up at the Level Shoe District summer sale.  At AED1,110 my name was written all of these kicks, pastel colour (check), pointy court (check), three inch heel (check), sold.

These heels are from Ralph's SS14 collection where he smothered the catwalk in array of beautiful pastel clothes and accessories which are just perfect for that summer street style look. 






Walking through the malls of Dubai you’re bound to bump into a stylish lady or two and mint, sky blues, lilacs and baby pink shades seem to be trending on the streets.  The SS14 catwalks heavily featured pastels, from Prada to Balenciaga, and as the stores begin to clear out their summer stock to make space for the autumn/winter collections – the good news is, it is now all on sale!


My RL shoes had their first debut the night before when I had a date-night with my friend at a lovely Greek restaurant in Bur Dubai.  I didn’t have it in mind to pair them with jeans and a t-shirt but I think this combo works really well.  My general rule of thumb is that a pointy court is a winner when matched with denim – but I think next time it would look cool to try it with a graphic print T instead.  My scarf was an accidental style success.  I was feeling chilly later on that day and had this scarf in the car and when I put it on it was a pure fashion-coincidence that the two lilacs’ matched = very happy.

This outfit was pulled together for a spot of breakfast and a little shopping spree in Jumeirah.  I then skipped, hopped and jumped into S*uce home (near Safa Park) for a mooch around for some eclectic accessories and home wear




Whilst shopping, I came across their Fatma Mulla collection which is pretty cool; Fatma is a local designer whose limited collection is found in Dubai boutiques and her designs are heavily influenced by the arabian culture.


S*uce have an online shop where you can shop FMM collection, which is great as they only have limited sized in store.



Until next time, ta-da.
