At the risk of looking weird

July 28, 2010

This is one of those tops I kinda love- hate. Love because it’s so comfortable, hate because it’s hard to pair it with something different, I can only do black leggings or a skirt so many times.  Also, this is something my mom would most likely wear- her closet has lots of bright florals, well bright anything, shoulder pads, sequins etc (your average stuck in the 80s mom). It’s not exactly my taste with it’s big, bright flowers but I’ve come to love it some how.

I wasn’t completely convinced about this outfit  but at least it’s different and super comfy. I changed into flip flops later on though, and I kept getting stared at by men and women. I wasn’t sure if it’s because I’m chubby and showing skin or just the showing skin part. Dubai is quite a schizophrenic place, they say you have to dress modestly but you can see girls in short shorts, minis, tubes, whatever. But you’ ll have signs and laws in malls about dressing modestly and people will stare at you yet these malls sell all the stuff you’re not supposed to wear there. Weird.
