This week: A celebrity blogger is in town and a new store for accessories opens.
Need to update your look but don’t want to spend a fortune? Aussie-based affordable accessories brand Colette by Colette Hayman (no number) has just opened its first store in the UAE at Sharjah Mega Mall. It’s a little further afield than most, but can easily be explored on a side-trip to the Musandam or RAK. Pictured below, the brand stocks everything from diamante and pearl stud earrings to chunky statement necklaces, hair accessories, wallets, clutches and shoulder bags.
Meanwhile, those looking to replicate some of the 21st century’s most generic tattoos can now do so with N.Bar (04 399 9009) and JetSet’s (04 437 0177) new Skin Feelings spring/summer range of temporary tats.
They won’t appeal to those who set trends rather than follow them, but if you’re not fussed you can flaunt cliché quotes including ‘let it be’, ‘just breathe’ and the feather made famous by Texan model Erin Wasson.
Lastly, renowned LA blogger Sincerely Jules (www.sincerelyjules.com) is zipping into Dubai this week to make an appearance at Topshop. Julia, aka Jules Sarinana, blogs about her daily style and travels and has been featured in some of America’s top women’s mags.
