Today it was time for yet another Shopping Soiree at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club. It was an excuse as good as any for my Austrian friend Katrin and I to meet up there for our lunch, and have a little browse around the stalls, before we went downstairs to eat.
We actually didn't buy anything, although we did get stuck at this stall with funky looking shawls for quite a while. Well, they were called something specific, they weren't quite shawls, they were more like a tube that you pulled over your head.
Oh, how I love when people see a need and come up with a stylish solution! These are absolutely perfect in this country, to keep in your bag when the need arises to cover up, for different reasons. So much better than a pashmina that keeps falling off your shoulders, or a cardigan that is too hot.
Yes, I thought these were super clever actually, and the only reason I didn't get one - was because I couldn't decide on which colour!!! (I do regret now, so I'm hoping this lady will return for the next Shopping Soiree!)
