Event: Pinkmoon's Pop Up

Yesterday I managed to pass by Pinkmoon boutique to check out their 3-day pop-up, today's the last day by the way. I was blown away by the selection of Jewelry by New York-based designer Clarissa Bronfman. They also had vintage-like, beaten-up leather bags from designer Khoi Le, which I would snatch up immediately if I was the jet-setter kind as they're prefect for quick trips. They also had the designers of Figue jackets, which apparently sold out one the same day of launching their event. I'd say the jewelry were the stars of the Pop Up, I wanted to buy ALL of the necklaces, check out the details of the charms hanging from the necklaces in the photos below.

Today is the last day of our pop up shop so be sure to pass by, they're open 10am-10pm.

Color Crazy with Peter Pilotto

I instagramed this photo a few days ago of me trying on Peter Pilotto's ribbed wool-blend coat at AlOthman Boutique. I love colors! So this was like the perfect match for me! It's not the wisest investment buy, I know for a fact that come next winter season, I'd be bored of it, but I'm so drawn to it color quirkiness and ease-of-wear. If only it was more budget-friendly, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to buy it.
I'm not sure if it's still available at AlOthman now, but you can find a toned down version here.

What a MasterPeace

When AlOthman Boutique first received a selection of Moscow-based jewellery and accessories label, Masterpeace in-store, I went crazy! I wanted to buy at least 5 hairbands! It was such a Deja vu moment! It reminded me of the time when I first saw Ninas de Papa's work, previous post here. Thankfully I came back to my senses and settled for these two, who could possibly resist cute little elephants decorating a hairband?!! The only problem with the hairband is that they kind of don't fit my head properly, they're slippery a bit, the elephants one at least, the other leaf hairband has a better fit.

Speaking of Ninas de Papa's, I hope that's not they're last collection, I would love to see what they'd come up with next! Their hairbands were so pretty and don't really break the bank!

You can shop Masterpeace at AlOthman Boutique in Salmiya - Maryam Complex, or online here.

Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming! Keep your head on with the Game of Thrones Beanie hat spotted at Zara the other day. This would definitely appeal to all hardcore Game of Thrones fans.

I Want to Live in Madame Mantis

I wouldn't mind moving to Madame Mantis and live there forever if I could! Anyone who has visited this beautiful showroom has likely voiced this thought at least once! Because of its endless selection of home accessories and the most unique furniture, I always feel like that I have to buy something from there even though I don't really "need" to. Like for example this gold covered head sculpture by Kelly Wearstler, which by the way costs a whooping KD 3,000+. According to the sales lady, this piece is introduced by the designer every now and then but they're completely unique, never produced the exact same style. Everything you see in this store is absolutely unique! I try to go there regularly just so I don't miss out on the hard-to-find items, even though I mostly window shop. Check it out if you're doing some home improvements or looking for a gift. Scroll down for some of my favorite things.

Madame Mantis is located in Shuwaikh, close to Al Tilal Complex. The same complex where Caribou Coffee is.

Red Sunnies by Le Specs

Summer might be over, but that didn't stop me from buying a new pair of colored reflective sunnies from BLAQ Concept store the other day, especially that they were only KD 25! They're by Australian brand Le Specs and I went for the red-colored lenses. Must wear and tear them before the weather gets colder.

Olympia Le-Tan x Pierre Marcolini

This is the ultimate luxury chocolate gift any fashion-loving lady would be thrilled about! The Olympia Le-Tan x Pierre Marcolini box. It's an uncommon collaboration, but probably closest to my heart not because it combines two things that I love, food and fashion, but because it was gifted to me by one of my close friends with the purest soul.

To celebrate Marcolini’s new Haute Chocolaterie boutique on the Rue de Saint-Honoré in Paris, Olympia Le-Tan has designed two very special limited-edition boxes filled with either 17 of her favourite sweet treats or 12 handmade macaroons. I got the macaroons box, needless to say I finished it in one go... well left a few for the family to try. How generous I know.

Candela

I know this season is all about understated simple minimal looks, but when look at these embroidered shoes by New York-based brand Candela and I'm hooked! They are a tad too busy with the embroidery, but with solid navy or blacks I think they will add a little interest to your day outfits. The golden question that needs to be asked now is, do they ship to Kuwait?

OK I just checked yes they do ship to Kuwait! Yay!

Céline Shoes

The quality of craftsmanship of Céline is simply incredible. For me it's like a prerequisite to buy from their accessories department, be it an everyday bag or clutch, or a pair of amazing minimal shoes. As shallow and as materialistic this may sound, but I can’t have Céline missing in my wardrobe! I recently passed by their boutique in Prestige the Avenues and fell in love with their new season's shoes selection, especially the pointy flat heels and the knotted leather sandals. I bought a pair which I'll share its photos in a proper dedicated post, welcoming its arrival to my family of loved accessories.

Scroll down for some feet candy.

A Visit to Dar Al Funoon's Affordable Art Show

Just before the long Eid Vacation, I passed by Dar Al-Funoon to check out its “Affordable Art Show”. It's one of those events which I try not to miss. Especially that I'm trying to collection paintings for my on-going home improvement projects. It was kind of quiet when I passed by, probably because everyone was already traveling for Eid. I was also slightly disappointed as I imagened it to display more options, like they did in their previous events. The selection was kind of limited. I did find two paintings that i really liked by William Anderson but I was too little too late as they were already sold out.

The “Affordable Art Show”, which is usually held 3-4 times a year, features a wide range of impressive works on paper, limited editions and originals by emerging artists from the Middle East and the world in general.

Loved the blue and white paintings by artist William Anderson. They were priced at KD 70 each and unfortunately for me they were both sold out already.

Water color painting titled "Billie Holiday" by artist Philip Kamble, known for his passion to painting music-related subjects. It was priced at KD 90 and I think you can still find it at Dar Al Funoon.

A beautiful set of paintings with Arabic calligraphy, oil on canvas, by artist Waleed Hassaniyah, KD 70 each.
