I wanted to create an Arabic female character for a while and decided that a desert Bedouin would best illustrate the Middle Eastern culture. Of course my outfit is hardly the type, except for may be the jewelry from Yemen, but you get the idea! I was also getting inspired from The Alchemist book, written by Paulo Coelho. I'm sure most of you have read it. I did so several times and it is so inspirational and full of wisdom!
Here are some:
“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”

“God only rarely reveals the future. When he does so, it is for one reason: it's a future that was written so as to be altered.”

“Maktub" (It is written.)”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

I LOVE this! And the inspiration behind the shoot. I couldn't get over how you reminded me of Eva Green in the second photo (she's my favourite contemporary actress and I've got a big "crush" on her). I must give it a heart tomorrow.

It's so good to be back on Lookbook! :)
