That Vera Wang Dress Again!


Remember that short evening Vera Wang Lavender dress which I saw at Al Othman once and was sold out later? One of our readers named Vio has informed me that the dress is currently available at Al-Boshiya store at Arraya Complex (Thanks Vio!). So out of curiosity, I went there yesterday and there it was, the long lost dress is on their window display. However, it was KD 120 "more" expensive than Al Othman.

At Al Othman, the dress was priced at KD 220. Whereas, the same dress was being sold at Al-Boshiya for KD 340! I so wanted to scream my lungs out at the sales lady: "Rip offs!!!". But I just had to contain myself and leave peacefully.

Would you have told the sales lady about Al Othman's price?

Yup, i would.

She'd probably find it at Net-a-porter since they carry the Lavender line as well..

shame u didnt tell them!
i cannot stand rip off and we are not talking about 10 or even 20 KD (which is already dramatic BUT can happen...) 120KD is absolutelyridiculous. i would actually go back and tell them. maybe check some other items and compare prices with AlOthman.... seriously noone is as well and honest priced as ALOthman.
and are they even allowed to carry the lavender line ?

Its about KD 192, with shipping and handling charges it may reach Al Othman price tag :-)

The only available sizes are 6 and 8 so hurry up :-D

The dress is unavailable at net-a-porter, I checked a couple of time :|

You're right, I should have told them. I don't know why I didn't, Probably coz I was in a hurry.

They had an evening jacket and two other dresses from the same line.

True, so convenient! but sometimes you just want to try on the dress before purchasing :)

ansam
Thank you sooo much :*
For some reason, I don't know why I didn't try to look for the dress on american online shopping sites! Call it laziness :P

Hey ansam,

Do saks accept credit cards issued in q8? Or they still don’t ?

Ansam said...

Anonymous, just copy the link into your email and send it to
justask@sultan-center.com
Provide them with your address and phone number
They will call you and arrange everything, you pay half before order and the remaining balance when they get it for you + shipping
Safer than online shopping :-D

I used my Kuwaiti credit card several times on SFA and neimans, only the first time my order did not go through because it was an international credit card but when I changed the billing address to Aramex, they started accepting my credit card.

Good Luck :)
