To be honest i'm not a bag snob , i'm more tending  to be middle way, but my problem is that if see some  brand expansive bags on my taste , i can't be indifferent.

Anklets Fashion

The anklet was a symbol of the beauty of the Egyptian women in ancient times and among the Bedouin women.
This heritage inherited from the grandmother, they used to put anklets on their foot giving it a beautiful and vital look. 
Anklets was worn by brides as well and some dancers.
They r made out of gold or silver and some precious stones which r a high cost. Copper or metal anklets can be affordable in markets.

The ring it'c cute :) but i would never wear ...  i have the uncomfortable feeling with it .

What is 'abaya and jalabiyah?

Someone has asked me about 'abaya. She may find difficult to understand the meaning of 'abaya and she's very curious about this item.
Well in response to u , dear " Simmi" i will make a little brief about 'abaya for the purpose in understanding our traditions better.

Well   "What is 'abaya?"
Wearing an "abaya" and covering hair denotes that a woman is Mulsim.
“Abaya”, “Swaieyah”, or “Daffa” as it is called in the Gulf is a black over garment worn by many women in the Islamic world. Although it is not obligatory for women to wear 'Abaya's in most Gulf countries, it is still a traditional costume that most women consider a vital piece in their closets. 
An essential staple to complete many Khaleeji Women’s daily wardrobe, 'Abaya's  r  no longer a plain black material that one would merely drape over one’s body as it used to be in the past.

'Abaya's, nowadays come in many styles, cuts, fabrics, and colors complimenting what’s currently in style on international runways. 
Some are hand painted, some are heavily embroidered, and many come in limited edition styles- to ensure that u stand out from the masses wearing 'Abaya on the street and give u a unique flare.

What is Jalabiyah?

The "Jalabeyah" "Jalabiyah" or "dara’a", also known as " kaftan" , is the Gulf woman’s traditional attire. 
Even though the jalabeyah today is mostly worn as an indoors, from house to house, type of clothing, women still make much of the process of choosing or ordering this garment.It’s been influenced by Moroccan kaftans, Indian saris, and Japanese kimonos and much more.
It is coming in different colors, material texture and lots of applications on it ( as u see in the photo).

I have choose to show u fuchsia jalabeyah, coz is one of my favorite colors :)
With the hope my post made a light to ur curiosity inshalla !
