My outfit for Kempinski’s 120th Anniversary event that was hosted by Marsa Malaz at The Pearl (Doha, Qatar) was this delightful vertical striped dress designed by X & O at Young Designers Emporium (YDE). It’s quite possibly my all-time favourite striped item of all time. The flowing chiffon material and lining that has been designed in a loose fit is incredibly comfortable. It’s not the kind of dress that you wear and have to watch what you eat all night at an event. In this gorgeous creation you can eat like it’s Christmas lunch and nobody would be the wiser – that’s how flattering it is. I actually wish I had it in different colours.
My shoes were black Aldo suede heels with one thin strap over the toes and another thin strap around the ankle. I’d love to say they were as comfortable as the dress, but I wanted to throw those off one hour into the event (which was a standing cocktail event, so I was on my feet the entire time).
I had very few accessories on at the event. The dress’s neck line doesn’t allow for a necklace and I didn’t feel like wearing earrings (because my ears were still in pain from the night before’s giant earrings). I just wore my diamond ring, and that was enough.
