Who doesn’t enjoy rummaging through Nana’s closet? The gems found in your grandma’s treasure chest will never cease to be irreplaceable.  It’s a raid that one will never regret.  Whether it is the exquisite jewels, divine dresses, standout shawls, or bedazzled bags, I promise each item will be intricate and ingenious.

Well guess what?  Just in case you can’t scour your grandma’s closet, one of Cairo’s darlings launched Nana’s Closet, a ‘brand inspired by vintage pieces that your daughter, or if I’m lucky even your granddaughters will steal out of your closet one day as I have done with mine’.  After having visited the showing of the first mini-collection, I feel in love.  Not only because I am huge fan of vintage but because the designer’s attention to details with the hand made detailing, the choice of fabrics, and the undeniably perfect finishing is to die for.  Picture old Hollywood cocktail dresses & jumpsuits and sublime yet simple dinner date dresses.

I will share with you my favorite items of the 1st mini-collection.  Unfortunately, it has all sold out, being that there are only two sizes of each piece.  Which is a good thing, it keeps the collection exclusive.  But I do promise that when the next collection is launched, you will be among the first to know.

Bebe Sequined Gold New Years Eve Dress

Want to be the CENTER OF THE STAGE? It is all yours with this ULTRA fabulous tiered gold sequined strapless Bebe dress.  By far the most electrifying New Years Eve dress I have seen around Cairo.  It makes a statement for itself, so the hair should be simple, same as the accessories.  A black blazer, black pumps, black clutch and gold earings in my opinion, are more than enough.  Keep it simple, the dress is its own testimony.

WISHING YOU ALL A GREAT 2010! Don’t forget your New Years resolutions. 

Found at Bebe store in City Stars, Phase 2. 

FashionThreads would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years!  For all of us stuck in Cairo, I wanted to get us in the holiday spirit by posting pictures of stunning holiday window displays.  Hope you enjoy.
