Packing For Marrakech: The Embroidered Mule

Packing For Marrakech: The Embroidered Mule on vickiarcher.com

Next week is Marrakech.

I am excited as my head starts to fill with thoughts of the exotic; that’s Marrakech. Orange blossom and rose madness are clouding the mind.

I am going to join a creative workshop and hopefully hone my photography and writing skills in this vibrant and colourful city. It will be exciting to return and to be together with a group of like-minded people with similar loves.

This weekend my head needs to make a u-turn and head back from the cold and chilly of London to the warmth and colour of Marrakech. I’m finding it hard to re-invigorate the summer vibe and I’m feeling all about the cashmere and cosy right now. I’m not good at swapping seasons, especially cold for the warm. Weird, I know – everyone longs for sunshine and heat; me I’m a cold weather fan.

When all else fails and I can’t decide what to pack I usually look down to my feet.

Instead of thinking about the practicalities of a four-day trip – like dresses, blouses and pants – I’ve worked out what to wear on my feet. If I pack some colourful and fun footwear I can get away with simple pants and tees most of the time.

Mules it is.

Mules keep on keeping on, thanks to Gucci. An embroidered or colourful pair of mules can elevate an outfit to another level. It gives our neutral classics a make-over in the easiest possible way.

Take a look, I think you might be tempted. I was. xv

Marrakech is fabulous! Have a wonderful time! Would so love to revisit now the Dior Museums have opened – and also to see the Majorelle Gardens. We were there one May and it was baking hot even then, and not even really summer! But November should hopefully be cooler though lots warmer than London. Have fun shopping too! I loved the souks – so interesting and colourful! Best wishes, Pamela


Vicki, are you joining Garance by chance? That will definitely be a fun retreat. Have a fabulous time in Marrakech, will look forward to your photos!


it will be a memorable impressive trip. Living close I visit this magical country as much as possible. Take time to get the most of it and have a great time


Wow – Garance Dore is certainly an expert on Morocco – and so interesting on style, both personal and for apartments/houses. I really like her interviews with other creatives and style leaders, including with the couple who created Assouline publishing. She seems to be able to relate to people so well, tuning into the subjects’ wavelengths and asking sometimes quite probing and fascinating questions. These meetings hardly seem like interviews most of the time, more like a discussion between friends, which they probably are in many cases.
PS The lovely Sydney jewellery designer uberkate (IG) is currently there right now doing a fashion shoot in the Majorelle Gardens, the desert, riads etc. She seems to be having a ball. She’s a friend of my DiL’s and designs wonderful cocktail rings (I already have two) and many other fab things. Have fun, Vicki. Looking forward to your posts on this – and Morocco! Best wishes, Pamela

I have a pair in silk and I love them so much, I haven’t worn them! I think it’s time for me to photograph them! Bon voyage, dearest Vicki!
