Armani Casa at Kuwait now features two new additions to it's store: First, Armani Dolci which is a line of yummy and heavenly chocolate in different flavors: dark, milk and white chocolate, and various other sweet morsels. What I liked about Armani Dolci is the packaging. Very modern with a Japanese twist. The second addition is Armani Fiori which provides flower arrangement services in a very original and hip mixture.

As shown here on the model, you can wear it with opaque tights. And if it's too girly for you, add a pair of studded heels for a more reblious look. or better yet a scarlet red patent shoe-boot.
Loved the backless french lace detail. Gives it a sassy look. So how much does it cost? KD 349. Worth every penny. This beautiful and simple dress is available at Alothman Store located at Mariam Complex. For inquires, please call (+965) 575-4954.

I have seen some items of their collection online and in magazines. And I think it suits those who look for a very modern & no-fuss collection. It’s all about plain basics such as T-shirts, stretch leather pants, and clingy dresses, the kind that won't flatter all body shapes that's for sure! Pretty much MK & Ashley's style. I'm actually looking forward to see the collection here in Kuwait and try their clothes on.

IntermixOnline.com is the site to visit when looking for stylish dresses and funky accessories at not-too-expensive or over the top prices. They carry many different looks to choose from, so no matter your style, you're sure to find something that reflects it.
My favorite item is this Herve Leger "bandage" like dark purple halter neck dress. The shape of the dress hugs the body snugly, outlining your curves. So make sure that you have it before you flaunt it. The dress will give you the Victoria Beckham look (I meant it in a good way, not the robot like pout). Now close your eyes and imagine you're carrying a matching color mini Hermes kelly bag.. Perfect!

So I was thrilled to know that Rue Du Mail is now being sold at Villa Moda Shuwaikh. You have to go and feel the creations. I wanted to buy the whole rack, but I would get in serious trouble with the local authorities. Here's what's available now from Rue Du Mail at Villa Moda:

I had reached a major milestone in my blog & daily babblings without even knowing it. This to me is a historical moment and it marks my journey in the fabulous blogosphere. A shameless self promoter? Moi?
And I would also like to thank YOU for your props, comments, and lovely e-mails. You keep me going. And last but not least, thanks to zahra for drawing our attention to Dia Diwan.
I Hope you'll always enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.

Penelope and Monica Cruz for MNG collection is now available at all Mango stores throughout Kuwait. Following the trend of celebs turning into designers, the exotic Cruz sisters designed and modelled the limited-edition collection. Prices range from KD 15 for a basic vest to KD 25 for jeans, and around KD 50 for an evening dress. You can view the collection by clicking here. And here are some photos which I've taken of the collection.
So what do I think of the Cruz collection? I think the clothes look.. ordinary. Pretty much similar to the clothing you already see in H&M or Zara. I think they could have tried to be more innovative, rather than depending on what they see on the high-street. Or maybe the collection reflects their classic style? Hmm.. I wonder who's the next celeb in line for a designing collaboration.
Most items were already sold out (why do these things always happen to me!). Here are some photos taken from TopShop.com on what is available in store now.
Printed slash neck blouse 100% Silk
High-waisted wide leg lame trousers
Wide leg trousers with a self fabric tie at waist and an attached metal disc buckle (my fave!)

I was surprised that there was no big advertising campaigns to promote Giles collection through out the streets of Kuwait. It's so unlikely of Al-Shaya'a Group to do that. Maybe they thought that Giles is unpopular? (gasp!). Anyways, here are some items of the collection displayed in store now.
Black clutch with crystals KD 12
Stripped black & white skirt KD 15
Blue and printed pleated blouse KD 17 each
If you haven't decided on your IT bag for this season, allow me to interfere. This ruby red aged leather handbag with gold hardware and a clasp fastening on front from Miu Miu is all you need to carry you throughout fall and beyond. Every fashion magazine I skimmed through lately had featured the bag in one of their articles or fashion shoots. The bag would go perfectly well with winter grays, blacks, whites, and pinks.
