Anything you would like to share with Dubai Fashionista's readers?
Do not be afraid to express yourself and do not be judgmental, everyone is entitled have a unique style that differentiates from the rest. If someone wears something you don't like, it doesn't necessary means it's ugly, what's ugly to you be nice to others, and what's nice to you might be ugly to them, so give people the freedom to be who they are.
