Chanel Little Black Jacket exhibition in Dubai

Last Saturday, after getting my hair chopped, Alexa and I headed to Downtown Dubai to visit the Chanel Little Black Jacket exhibition. But not before a bite to eat at The Pavillion...

If bags could be best friends... these two would be perfect for each other! 
Alexa's neon Cambridge satchel, my cheeky studded find from a little shop in Satwa.

The Pavilion is possibly the most hipster venue that Dubai has to offer, except its still been glossed over with that Dubai classiness. Essentially it is a restaurant, a workspace and an art gallery all rolled into one. When I was back in Dubai on holidays from uni, I often used to bring my laptop down to The Pavilion  settle myself on one of their wooden benches, order a smoothie and attempt to do a couple of hours of essay-writing. Admittedly, as with everywhere in Dubai, it's popularity can be partly attributed to it being a fashionable place to be seen (in real-life or, preferably, on Instagram). However, in the past year or so they have seriously upped their menu and I now would legitimately  go there for the food alone.

We sat outside (May is probably the last month that it'll be possible to do this, before summer properly hits), Alexa ordered a mango-based fresh juice and the spicy chicken wrap, whilst I went for the passion fruit cooler and salmon on gluten-free bread, with a side of rocket (not a very photogenic dish but it was delicious)! 

Eventually we headed off to find the exhibition...

I had high expectations for this show, after hearing great things from friends in London and other bloggers, and I was absolutely not disappointed. Every single photograph was absolutely stunning, both as works of art and snapshots of individual idiosyncrasies. 

And lastly, here are the details of my outfit - wouldn't a Chanel little black jacket just complete it? If only...

Skirt - Splash (similar from ASOS)
Tshirt - ZARA
Necklace and sunglasses - H&M
