Winters in Dubai aren’t super cold so we don’t get to wear too many layers and honestly, I struggle with winter fashion because I’m not crazy about spending money on clothes I would only get to wear for about 2 months in a year. I tend to buy pieces I can wear for a few years, and prefer something that is easy to layer with my existing wardrobe.
I don’t know why, but a fur gilet isn’t a common sight here and I get a lot of sarcasm for wearing mine. I think it’s crazy because I love it! First of all, it’s faux fur, it’s cuddly and it keeps me warm. I can wear it over jeans and a shirt for a casual day look and glam it up with a slinky maxi dress for nights. Also, I scored this fur gilet half off on the sale rack. What’s not to love?! I’ve been accused of killing the abominable snowman, asked where my tiara and diamonds were, and my boyfriend said I looked “so country” (what on earth does that mean?). But I shrug off all the jokes because I feel awesome in it and I love the endless styling possibilities I get to play with. If other people don’t get it, that’s their problem. It’s not my job to school them in fashion but it is my job to make myself look and feel fabulous, right?
