May El Calamawy’s best buys

Girly socks, gold bracelets, winter clothes in the sunshine and multiple usage shorts and belts

Gold bracelet from Boom & Mellow: it has Ayat Al Kursi from the Quran on it, and the Evil eye on the other side and makes me feel safe; I never take it off. It was a gift.
Shorts from Topshop: shorts are such an integral part of my dress style; I can wear them all year round, with any look.
White lace skirt from Massimo Dutti: lace makes me happy, especially when pairing it with tough shoes or a jacket.
Brown leather vest from Rutti, around Dhs1,725: I love vests and this one even more so because it’s made of different materials and the leather is especially soft.
Black waist belt from Reiss, around Dhs250: I can find a reason to wear a waist belt with nearly every outfit.
White raincoat from Alice + Olivia: It’s got such girly yet mature feel to it. I wish it were colder in Dubai, because I still haven’t gotten the chance to wear it here.
Over-sized beige sweater from Diane von Furstenberg: I feel so warm and protected in this and love pairing it with leggings or tights and boots.
Red leather jacket from Massimo Dutti: I wore this with every pattern, color and style when I first bought it. I convinced myself it was cold enough in Dubai.
Vintage black purse from Salvatore Ferregamo: I took this from my mother’s closet.
Girly lace ankle socks from American Apparel around Dhs33: I love pairing these with heels, they bring back my youth.
