Irving and I are planning a vacation to Cairo and Dubai! We are getting really, really excited but still a little unsure of what to expect.
Yesterday, we went to a cute little indie movie theater in Pasadena to see the film Cairo Time.
It was a little slow and predictable, but it was really a beautiful film. It was so simple, yet deep and passionate and I totally let myself fall inside. The film made Cairo feel romantic and exciting! So foreign and rustic, yet comfortable and real. In parts, it looked like any other European city. Irving and I giggled through parts because we just can’t believe we’re going!
The fashion in the film was just incredible. I think we were both blown away at the beauty of the clothes. They were soft and flowing against the grainy-ness of the Egyptian dessert.
I was in love with this dress:
And Irving agreed that this guy’s suit was the most amazing suit we’ve ever seen…
And there’s one scene with an arabic wedding and the girl’s wedding dress was just GORGEOUS! I know nothing about fashion, but I know a good dress when I see one. 🙂
[note to self: get pretty clothes for our trip to the middle east!]
Needless to say, after the movie, our minds were spinning with excitement. We headed straight for a travel bookstore to do some more research!
I haven’t been to Cairo but Dubai was fabulous. It is a bit like Las Vegas where you jump from gorgeous hotel to gorgeous mall to gorgeous restaurant because it is TOO HOT to be outside for long.
Enjoy your trip!
PS – I live in Los Angeles too!
