Get a load of me part 2 with Poca & Poca

I don't want to sound like a snob...but I know I am going to :)....

...but there aren't a lot of clothes designers, touted around Dubai, that actually churn out clothes I like. Sometimes they are too gaudy, sometimes they are just not me and sometimes they are just so poorly made it's laughable. I can count the locally promoted designers I have seen and liked on one hand. One of them is Poca & Poca. And to make matters more complicated they are actually Polish.

Now, I know what you are thinking: "you would say that". And yes I would - but not just because they did a little feature on me, but because I love the classic, retro aesthetic they channel in their designs. It's girly, tasteful and with just enough vibrancy to make it interesting.

Here's some pictures to explain what I mean - these are from their latest collection, Timelessness. This is a capsule range designed to be part sophistication and part girly grace. I am one of those people who aspire to have a "capsule wardrobe" (never going to happen, is it?) and anyway, who doesn't love the odd bow and knicker-bocker detail?






Seriously though, their clothes are lovely - check out their website and you will get a sense of what I mean. I was featured recently as "The Blogger". This means that I once again waffle on about fashion and clothes. Recognise the photo? :)

Finally, if you are in Dubai...

...there is a Poca & Poca event tomorrow. It does actually sounds amazing and I wish you could all come - they are screening Breakfast at Tiffany's and asking us to dress with a 60's theme.  I'm thinking mini dress and a Winehouse-load of eyeliner.

If you are based locally there is a chance to win two tickets - all you have to do is leave a comment to explain what "timeless" means to you. Simples and you have a pretty good chance of winning. If you do, please hang out with me :)

Here's the link - Link!

Here's their Facebook - Link!

I will upload pictures of the event - and my eyeliner - tomorrow or Thursday.

I am also going to the opening of a spa tomorrow night. To be exact it is a Hello Kitty themed spa.

Swoon!

Now I don't own any Hello Kitty memorabilia these days but it doesn't stop be gawking and smiling everytime I wander past the Sanrio store so expect lots of cheesy smiles in the next set of photos.

Makes a change from Smug Face eh :)

Happy Tuesday! x
