If you want to know a fashion trend before reading it in a magazine, or what is the must have item, before anyone else knows about it, 99% of the time you can read it first on a fashion blog. If fashion was a war, fashion bloggers would be in the trenches fighting to be the first to bring fashion trends and what is happening with “Street Style.”
In the UAE there are some AMAZINGLY talented bloggers, not only are they talented at spotting a rare fashion find, their closets are enviable! One blogger that we keep seeing at events (who makes us green with envy thanks to her effortless style) is Maha from Oversized Shades & Coffee www.shadesandcoffee.com.
We chatted with Maha who started blogging in 2008, when she lived in Saudi, she has a passion for photography, writing, quirky designs and of course fashion! Making her one of our favorite bloggers, which is why we couldn’t wait to dive into her closet!
