The gloves

Image
I'm cleaning my Favorite list on my laptop now and found this, a blogger called Sky Turtle ,who posted about these jeweled gloves by Valentino.
I remember looking for them online, when I first saw them in Official magazine but didn't find anything that leads me to them, accept this blog.

When we were in Dubai I asked about these gloves in Valentino Boutique, but they told me they were only for the fashion show, they don’t sell them. Too bad, keep your eyes wide open I think gloves are going to be the trend for this season and seasons to come.

Glow Boutique

Image
I got my dress from Glow Boutique yesterday and it looked amazing when I tried it on (it needed alteration). Actually it's not a boutique, there used to be an exhibition in Bait Sedra and I got my dress from the owner's house.
Check out there facebook account, they have a lovely collection of colorful embroidered dresses.

This is another cuff that I'm adding to my collection of cuffs :)
price: 26.500 KD

I finally got my things from Denmark

Image
For people who deosn't like detail:
I ordered some stuff from (BY Milene Birger) in Denmark on April, got it on July. My dear sister went today to bring it from Kaifan post. Lesson learned (always go to Kifan post in the morning to claim your stuff if it was sent by a local posting service, it will never be sent to your home)
For people who likes detail:
The Danish brand (By Milene Birger) is my favorite for this season, the entire collection was amazing, can't get enough of her clothes. Their boutique is located in Marina Mall, I always go their every once in a while to see what they have and one day I fell in love with a multi color shoes that wraps around the ankle, but unfortunately they didn't have these in my size. So I said to myself "no worries, I can order it online" When I surfed the net for it, couldn't find it.. So I decided to order it from the source (Denmark) from their boutique instead of wasting time looking for online shopping sites. uhhh littl…

G-Force

Image
Enjoyed the movie BIG TIME, it was sooo funny. Advice, never watch any movie trailer; it always ruins it for you. All I knew about G-Force is that it topped Harry Potter in the box office. They played all of my favorite songs, have to download the soundtrack.

HE

Image
HE by Mango (menswear) is now open at 360 mall, love their grey jeans and neon belts.



and of course Mango's womenswear is there next to it, I liked this branch, it's more organized, not like their avenues branch.

Today is not my lucky day

Image
Today I planned to go to a Daraa' store in Qurtoba Mall called Haifa after lunch, meaning at 4:30 - 5, because they promised me yesterday that they are going to bring the style I liked in my size and in a variety of colors too. After lunch is my sleeping time, I hate going out in the afternoon, I'm always cranky, but I had to go in this hour because I wanna go walking at 7:00.

Went into the store....
No daraa'
ME: Why?
Women: The guy whom supposes to bring in the stuff didn't come yet, go do something else until he arrives.
ME: ohh well I have some clothes that needs alteration, and I need to pass by the salon too, great, see ya then. byeeeeee

Went in...
ME (taking out my clothes and laying them on the table to explain): Here are some stuff I wanna fix
Man: Noo madame, we don't do alteration
ME: haaaa what???? Then what do u do?
The man ignored me and kept on sewing with his stupid machine

Ok, I'll pass by Retro Salon now
Went in ...
Me: hello... I need to fix my eye brows …

The Girl At The Video Game Store

Funny video, loved how they change her clothes like in video games when they change character's clothes.

I sold my bags

Image
I remember a year ago reading a post on Confashion about a company that buys your bag and re-sell it.I wanna have some space in my closet for my new bags so I decided to call them up and see what I can sell. They are called Pre-Loved Bag, When mum heard what I'm about to do, she was like "sell your bags!!!!!!!! Just give them away, it's not worth selling them" I can't give them away :( I just can't. Anyway I called them up (didn't thought they were still in business) and I've learned that they only accept well known brands, like LVs and Chanels, which I don't own, so my Luella bag, Miu Miu and Cavalli's are out, but they accept Gucci bags, ohh well I have lots of those.To make a long story short, I send them pictures of my bags by email, they choose the ones they want and the next day their driver came to pick them up from our house, they examined them and gave me the final pricing. Red Gucci 7 KD, Pink Gucci 18 KD and the small Bottega bag is…

Me like this necklace

Image
From Casa Maroc at the avenues, if I'm not mistaken it was 70 KD

Buffalo's are now at the Avenues

Image
Buffalo's restaurant is now open at the avenues next to Fridays. I love their jalapeno pepper that comes with the sweet red sauce. So if you don't find a place in Fridays you can go to Buffalo's, they serve the same dishes.

Test # 3

Image
I'm going crazy over the size of pictures I will be posting in the future.
at work my blog looked hideous, all messed up, maybe that's why a lot of readers didn't respond to the change, I'm thinking they don't wanna hurt my feelings.
I have done some changes to the layout width and again to the pictures.
Promise this will be the last Testing post.

Now, this is the medium size
Tell me, what do u think? is this better?
640 x 427 pix.
I like them big , so I can look into detail without clicking to enlarge
