Dubai Day 1

The first view of Dubai

We are having such an awesome time here in Dubai. First, although we have been planning to buy a phone connection every single day, we have just not been able to. I was super uneasy because of lack of internet on my phone for the first day but the next day I realized that I was actually enjoying myself more without the phone. I miss out on so many things because half of the time I am just stuck with my cell phone. 😐 So anyway. Yesterday after lunch we went to ‘The Dubai Mall’ for some shopping. Before I start, always carry your flats with you if you visiting the super huge Dubai malls. Even though you would find ladies strutting in their 6 inches, trust me as a tourist you would want to explore the place and heels would kill your feet. Well! even flats did but still I could walk at the end of the day. πŸ˜›

Dubai is like the fashion capital. There is a continuous fashion parade going on. You would get to the best of bags and shoes all around you. Women are carrying their Chanels and Birkins like there is no tomorrow. Loved it! πŸ˜€

I checked out Louis Vuitton store yesterday and it felt like I had entered a fish market. 5 minutes and I was out. πŸ˜› I am seriouslyΒ beginningΒ to wonder if LV is cheap or superbly popular. πŸ˜› Dior had more or less the same collection that we find here in India. But they had a stunning ostrich Lady Dior, which went into my wish list. Chanel had a que outside their store because there were way too many people inside. I could not bother to wait. Β Then we checked out Michael Kors – gorgeous store but not that great a collection. Coach was excellent. But the best among the lot were Chloe and Stella Mc Cartney. Yet to check out a ton of places. Dubai Mall needs another visit. πŸ˜›

A friend spotted Stella Mc Cartney bags and I finally picked upthis gorgeous Faleballa.Β We decided to check more bags before we zeroed on this one but I couldn’t stop thinking about it once I saw it. So there it is my first purchase from Dubai. πŸ™‚ I loveed the bag. I did a mini modeling for all of us with the bag when we came back. hihih

Clothing wise we only checked Top Shop. I think Zara rocks. πŸ˜‰

So that’s day one. Sanjeev has fallen ill so we would be taking a bit slow today. Sharing some pics from yesterday. πŸ™‚

    Hey, i am glad you liked Dubai, it truly seems to be the fashion hood for many of us.
    Having stayed in Dubai since birth, i suggest u check out the desert safari and Burj Khalifa.
    The old Dubai also has its own charm which will surely strike a cord with your liking.
    The amnesia building shown above was the old Hard Rock Cafe, an iconic structure in itself hen the name, oh and do check out the night life, we have amazing clubs from Cavali to Armani πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      we went to desert safari. It was quite an experience. :)) thank you for all the suggestions. Time is just flying by here. so much to see and so less time. πŸ™ coming to dubai for the second time and I think I need another trip here. πŸ˜›

      hope we get to see burj khalifa atleast. the chances are pretty less though…

    super pics rati…i loved ibn batutta..even the mall is co colorful..so true about wearing flats in huge dubai malls, i wonder how those girls walk so aaram se in 6 inches heels..damn!!
    did u check armani cafe??? also, i think LV is given free to dubai women,sabke pass LV hota hai!!
    will suggest you to have “zatar” and also pakistani parantha..and offcorse lebanese cuisine πŸ™‚ have fun enjoy shopping!!
    btw did u check out Forever 21 in dubai mall??? its so damn big..one gets lost only..but they have awesome collection!!

    have fun!

    • Rati says:

      I swear LV is given free. loll!! I was really surprized to see the huge crowd at the store. It was maddening to say the least. πŸ˜›

      I tried moroccan cusine for the first time here. I have to say it is quite healthy. I mean if i dont get anything to eat, i can rely on that for sure. πŸ˜›

      not yet explored the shopping too much yet. might to in whatever time I have left. πŸ™‚
