What I’m buying this month
My 2015 back-to-work wardrobe is going to include boardroom-best accessories from Vince Camuto. I love the roomy on-duty bags and punchy but simple jewellery that adds a nifty 9-to-5 twist. Pair with tailored separates for a look that says you’re ready for business. From Dh200.

The pieces are far too cool to save for the gym, so plough your way through the DSF crowds to grab a fab frock for a fashionable night out or a pair of trainers for the weekend coffee run. In Adidas stores now from Dh395.
Psst... news alert
I’ve been a fan of Dubai-based designer Judith Hobby for a while now – throw on one of her simple jersey dresses and you’re sure to look effortlessly elegant – and she’s just launched an equally covetable jewellery collection. See judithhobbyclothing.com. I feel a shopping spree coming on!
