Fantasy Travel Week: Dubai


Whew! Having a website down and having it be out of my control is definitely a reason to take a  (fantasy) trip.


A “seven-star” property, the world’s tallest tower, man-made islands, and an upcoming underwater hotel make Dubai a place I’d like to visit.  It seems to be the land of excess, but I think I can handle it!


The world’s tallest building.

The man-made island is incredible.

For some reason the beauty of Dubai is causing me to step out of my comfort zone and wear bold colors!


The purple mini dress is too cute.

The yellow (sparkly, yes I know!) strapless dress with the turquoise scarf is an unexpected color combination that really works.

Finally, I could re-use the turquoise scarf with a this gorgeous maxi-dress.
