3 get the boot!
If you’re already looking ahead to autumn, then ankle boots are likely already on your shopping list. We love these two styles — something for everyone, whether you’re a little bit rock ’n’ roll (the buckled Diesel Sidney, Dh1,575) or totally glam (the Kurt Geiger Thelma, Dh969).
The season resumes tomorrow at Park Hyatt’s Thai Kitchen brunch, which is great value at Dh245, leaving you change for at hot dress to wear there — we love this Bella Scarpa one from Bebe, Dh595.

Harvey Nichols fashion styling workshops
In a wardrobe rut? Dazzled and confused by the latest trends? Australian fashion expert Melissa Hoyer is coming to help you.
