Inject culture into your summer fashion wear

Indian Kurta, Mexican stripes, Batik print, Bohemian dress and a sunset cocktail in the Sahara, they’re entirely fabulous. I wonder if this thought occurred to Carie Bradshaw before they - Carie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda - flew to the United Arab Emirates to shoot the very controversial “Sex and the City 2”. Instead of dressing up like dolls which arguably belong in the playroom, some culture inspired summer fashion wear would also be perfect either for Sahara or Morocco.

Through my lovely style feeder, I woke up this morning with a very good question: why not inject culture into your summer fashion wear? Indeed, why not?

Peru fashion is said to be scarce and used to be hard to reach fashion. You had to travel all the way to Peru just to get your copy of traditional Peruvian style - tall high landers hats and colorful crafts that essentially cater the taste of young girls.

  4. I would love trying on those Mexican stripe pants! I didn't know these existed.

    They actually flew to Morocco to film... but it did take place in Abu Dhabi, just like you said. Anyway, these are details, my dear!
