Zubaida of Butter Hot Shoes, is becoming something of a vintage advocate for us out in the UAE. We love her style and her vintage flair, so we saw it fit to use her as our first ever Style With A Vintage Flair feature as she has lots of both!
Zubaida explains what she wears: "I'm wearing 3 vintage items all from the 80's. A Gianni Versace skirt from his 80s collections, Chanel Paris earrings (those are from the early 80s and Inès de la Fressange wore them for the collection ads, they're so hot! Definitely my favorites out of all the vintage Chanel earrings I own). Also a vintage python bag, no brand/label."
"I like the Gianni Versace skirt because it's simple and elegant. Of course I had to take it from mom once I grew into a woman. I remember as a child, when ever I saw her wearing it, I was so in love with the way it flowed and made her look so chic."
"The Chanel 'Paris' earrings, I love, because what's there not to love about them? They are so rare! When I found them I went through a bidding war that lasted for 4 days just to have them, they are that beautiful that I just had to have them. Aren't they glamorous?"
"I like this Python bag because it can be both a shoulder bag and a clutch. Python is my favorite type of leather, it's so exotic and hot! Also the color is very attractive, I love this shade of brown and it goes really well with the green blazer."
Thanks to Zubaida for taking part in our brand new segment and remember to send in your own images of your style with a vintage flair to be featured on our blog to firstname.lastname@example.org.
