Can't get enough of Wayed Vintage vintage!

Anyone who says us girls in the Middle East can't do vintage is wrong – and Dana Faisal, owner of online vintage boutique Wayed Vintage is proof of that.

Wayed Vintage was set up by Dana in 2007 out of her love for all things from the golden Hollywood era, with Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe being her major style icons. "I came up with the name Wayed Vintage, because I had this vintage look and my friends would always tell me "shaklech wayed vintage" which means "you look so vintage", and "wayed" means s0 or a lot in the local Emirati dialect," Dana explains.

Inspired by the fashion and glamour of Hollywood's stars and movies back in the 40s, 50s and 60s, Dana, who is currently majoring in marketing at the University of Dubai, launched her own online vintage boutique, so that in her words, she could bring the fashion of that era back!

The majority of pieces are genuine vintage jewellery pieces sourced from Germany, Switzerland and the United States. Many of them are one-of-a-kind pieces (i.e. only one of them exist) and are in excellent condition. Some of the pieces date back as far as the 1950s. The selection of earrings is amazing – fabulous gold plated clip-ons with shining pearls, rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, multicoloured gems and gold – just the type of earrings Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren would wear back in the day and which glamorous celebrities like Beyoncé wear today.

What is great about Wayed Vintage is that everything is affordable – vintage pieces can be really expensive, but Dana has put a really affordable price range – we're talking prices as low as 80 dhs! The majority of pieces range from 150 dhs-300 dhs and the more exclusive pieces range between 500 dhs-1500 dhs – still very affordable.

Also in the lines is Dana's own vintage-inspired jewellery line which she hopes to develop further once she graduates from university.

Dana takes private appointments should customers want to view the pieces in person. Customers may also arrange for Dana to visit them at their houses in a private meeting if there is a minimum of 4 female customers in that meeting. She also meets her customers at arranged coffee meetings and tea parties. (THIS APPLIES TO CUSTOMERS IN DUBAI)
