Chanel Dubai Cruise 2015 Collection

I can't remember if I shared my views about Chanel's Dubai Cruise 2015 Collection on my blog or not, but I thought I'd share with you some photos of the pieces on display now at Chanel Boutique in Kuwait, Prestige in the Avenues and Salhiya Complex. I wasn't too crazy about the clothes. However, I did like some of the bags which had pompoms and tassels on them, as well as the gigantic pearl clutch. I also loved the Moroccan-inspired pointy flats and the silver jewelry adorned with coins and crescents. Of course the shoes were sold out in my size and I wasn't so crazy about the patterned ones. I LOVED the flap bag with Pom Poms, but it was above my budget. Overall the collection felt more Moroccan than Dubai-an. I wish if they have incorporate more of the our gulf region's culture into the designs.

Oh And I added to this post photos of Chanel's milk carton shaped python clutch bag embellished with a CC signature. They're not part of the Dubai collection though. But I though they're too cute not to be featured.

Under the Sea

I love the beach and dream of a home on the beach, clean one please where no sewage or factories waste gets thrown in it, where I can live and hear the sound of the waves crashing and smell the salt in the air and on my hair. So when I saw these sea-inspired home accessories at Zara Home the other day, I wanted to buy them all and redecorate my TV room pronto! The rustic and sea-inspired decor pieces bring the beach inside your home in a subtle and shabby chic way.

There were so many nice things at Zara Home! I rarely get to window shop/shop there mainly because of its location, I wish it was located somewhere more remote like Al Tilal Complex, more quiet and easy to access. I  really really hate the Avenues (how ironic I know! but I do!). All that crowd, all that noise, and ALL THAT SMOKE!

Anyhow, enjoy the pics...

Stephane Rolland Spring Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection

Stephane Rolland went for new silhouettes for his Spring Summer 2015 Haute Couture collection. Everything seems floaty and weightless. Think transparent gauze embroidered with beautiful details and latex or lacquered lace. Black, white and terracottas are the colour codes reinforced by rays of siliconed gold and silver powder. This collection makes such a sumptuous summer all in luminosity and airness. Scroll down for some of my favorite pieces of the collection.

Coach enlisted California artist and animator Gary Baseman's original drawings of darkly playful "creatures" who inhabit the Coach girl's belongings with a rebellious sense of mischief, like this quirky cool/creepy blindfolded bunny. Of course the clutches and the bag charms which I was planning on getting are sold out! Bummer!

Cinderelly, Cinderelly…. Shoes!

In celebration of the release of Disney’s live action film inspired by the classic fairy tale “Cinderella,” Disney Consumer Products (DCP) has collaborated with nine luxury designer shoe brands across the globe to assemble an enchanting collection of shoes that re-imagine Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper. The distinguished designers, in alphabetical order, are: Paul Andrew, Alexandre Birman, Rene Caovilla, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia, Jerome C. Rousseau, and Stuart Weitzman. Each brand has created its own interpretation of the famed glass slipper Cinderella accidentally leaves behind when the clock strikes midnight.

The shoes will exclusively be displayed at Level Shoe District in Dubai, from March 11th to the 24th.

I personally find Charlotte Olympia's Cinderelly heels are the most appealing design to me, minus the platform detail, the platform makes them look borderline tacky. Jimmy Choo's version would have looked really nice if they would have toned down on the crystals a notch. Paul Andrew and Ferragamo's look like a replica of Gianvito Rossi. Alexandre Birman didn't even bother with coming u with a new design and used one of its signature designs. Nicholas Kirkwood had a potential but again they killed it, in a negative way, with the mega bling bling details. 

The re-imagining of this iconic story told in spectacular live action is directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, and includes the stellar cast of Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter and more. The Walt Disney Studios film “Cinderella” is in theatres March 12th, 2015.

Celine.. My Endless Love

Ever hear that accessories are what makes an outfit? Pretty much every other post here! Do I sould like a broken record? I know but I just can't help it, I really do LOVE Celine and its bags selection! It's easy to focus on all the clothes on display at the brand's store in Prestige, but hellooo, did you get a look at all those jaw-dropping handbags? Even the canvas striped Luggage bag shown above, which got a lot of negative feedback on instagram, or at least that's what i have noticed, is such a game-changer, not to mention the fact that it's just straight-up stunning to look at. And the Celine Cabas comes in a new smaller size 9shown below) AND a long strap to wear it as a cross bag! How cool is that?! And let's not forget my endless love to the Nano bag, which comes in a beautiful color combination for Resort 2015. I had to squeeze in some shoes too for good measure.

Check 'em out, and let me know your favorite piece in the comments section!

The new color-combo of the nanos (heart heart heart!)

Quirky Cool Fendi

I always remember Fendi for it's two F's, fabulous fur and fantastic footwear. No other design house master these two categories quite like Fendi. Aside from those wonderful Fendi pieces, I have to admit that I'm just as pumped to get a look at it's bags selection, even if I don't end up buying. To me there's always a surprise element to Fendi's designs…and I don't know about you, but I love surprises.

When I passed by the boutique the other day, the selection on display did not disappoint. The handbags were loaded with funky and artistic embellishments and quirky cool designs. And the return of the baguette makes me really weak in the knees with all that beauty surrounding me. I also fell in love with a pair of leather sandals with bird-like prints, might end up getting those since the pinkish-nude sandals would work well with my Summer wardrobe. Take a scroll here to view some of my favorite picks from Fendi this season.

House of Holland X Mr. Men

Your mini-me would look the coolest kid in town with House of Holland's latest collaborated collection: House of Holland kids x Mr. Men. I spotted the collection at Harvey Nichols Kuwait and the collection features the much loved characters of Mr. Men, and a cool new charterer based on Henry Holland himself called Mr Quiffy. And that's not all, you can actually match up with your daugher/son too with THIS women's collection by the brand.

Outfit of the Day

Slow and Steady Wins the Race. Yup, that's the name of the brand of my detached sleeves sweat top which i bought from Net-a-Porter's Finds section. What I love about it is that it can be worn two different ways, the sleeves can be tied around the waist so it looks like a sleeveless top, which makes it perfect to wear under trench coats and blazers, and you ca wear the sleeves so you'll have that cut-out/slashed shoulders look. I really love the creativity of this brand! I remember several years back I bought a handbag from the same brand and even featured it on my blog here

I paired it with my light trench coat from the Gap, my TopShop cropped jeans, and my Comme des Garçons hologram purse.

Outfit of the Day

Every time I take a look at my Outfit of the Day photos I cringe! So I try to post them as soon as possible before I change my mind. Here I'm wearing a David Szeto Cunningham red wool shirt skirt (you can find it on sale here), I loved it because it has a tie-front sleeve detail. I chose to pair the skirt with a Breton top from the GAP, a distressed denim jacket from Paige Denim (find it online here), my Celine fringed sneakers, and my beloved Paula Cademartori shoulder bag. Casual and compfy.

In My Closet: Acne Studios striped

Man I look so grumpy here! Why the sad face?!! I probably wasn't too impressed with the selection at Aïshti at the Avenues and decided to take a semi-selfie of my favorite Acne Studios piece. A one-piece striped stole. The design is like nothing I've seen before! Mind you though, it's not the most practical, I feel like my shoulders are tied while walking, but it's all good, as long as it adds that chic flair to my outfit. You can view a better photo of this piece here.
