“As I’m a lawyer, I dress quiet conservatively during the week. Although I normally love color, black and white is one of my favorite combinations. This python bag is roomy enough for anything I could possibly need to carry during the day.”

“This dress is versatile yet conservative enough to take me from work to an evening with friends. I love this clutch with its black porcelain print; it’s perfect for dressing up an outfit.”
Victoria Beckham dress, Prada clutch
“I would wear this outfit for a relaxed midweek dinner. I love these earrings. They were a wedding gift from my sister-in-law and are real preserved flowers with a pearl.”
Alexander Wang sweater, J Brand jeans, Chanel bag and shoes
“Lulwa Al Amin is my favorite Bahraini designer; she’s a very sweet, hard-working, and talented girl. This is a spring/summer look of hers that I totally fell in love with. This look is perfect for dinner out with friends or family.”
