salaam,

This blog is so what I need.
I love to wear shirt dresses to work. I used to have them made exactly to my size. i must have put on a lil weight cos the ones I have cant exactly button up again...lol.

Anyways, was wondering where i can buy shirt dresses for work that aren't long sleeved not 3/4 or short sleeved

With my black dress (abaya) I'd definately plant those shoes on my feet. Plant, Ha. I am so witty. I'd grow that bracelet. I want a floral niqab too. Maybe I'd even wear it. And wouldn't have dare me to wear it Hayah---I would. Wait till everyone sees what I try to get away with in KSA.

Hayah said...

Alix, haha you are too funny :P Those sheos are pretty but... I wouldn't be able to walk very far in them! And what exactly are you gonna try in KSA?

salam all

i do like some floral, espcially in accessories i like the handbag defo. as for the shoes lolol i had a pair back in the late 80 early 90s lol, cant beleive they are back.

i have a few maxi dresses and i love them even in the winter with a roll neck underneath. in the summer i have different coloured long sleeved t-shirts which work well too.

B said...

yes i meant long sleeved!

Hayah said...

thanks hayah.,,checked but they only have the in L 0r XL sizes...

Alixianna said...

Yes, Pink Marshmellow, maybe then I can borrow them. He he he. Hayah: I am wearing heels ALL the time, since I will have chaffeur and aren't allowed to walk by myself for any time, I won't be commuting to work there, just the mall and to social gatherings, so I am going to try and get away with colour on everything that I can--- floral niqab here I come. As long as I don't try and drive I'll probably get away with it outside of Riyadh.

b, have a look in your nearest Uniqlo store! Also, try Shukr , they do plenty of long-sleeved shirtdress:

Alix, it's alright for some :P floral niqab sounds very intersting.. do you have one??

Floral is huge and we get slightly different interpretations each year. Its one the few trends I don't buy into for clothing, even though it is feminine, which I do like. I tend get the accessories though - especially the BAGS!

Nice to see you on the blog Silvia :) Yes I do adore the bags... such an easy way to wear any trend!

I would so wear those shoes!! I have lots of maxi dresses and I love floral patterns. My job requires I wear a uniform, (I'm a police officer) and I try to be as girly as possible off work! ( I live in the US)
