My favorite thing about the city of Marrakech is its strong sense of juxtaposition. The medina, the old town, is an ochre colored labyrinth of souks and narrow streets not built for modern cars. It feels like being in another place in time. It’s weathered, a bit dusty, and dotted with plain unassuming wooden doors. These are the gateways to chic lunch cafes and countless riads, traditional Moroccan homes with open air courtyards and tiled water fountains. The real glamour of Marrakech lies behind these doors.
To tap into the romance, I wore the Casa Embellished Cold Shoulder dress from Parker Black. It’s a blue silk beaded gown that features a back cutout. Once I learned what Marrakech was hiding, I realized this was my most appropriate dress.
