The Thrill Of Bargain Hunting - Part I - Cocktail Hour with YSL

The first item that caught my eyes when I first started my bargain hunting journey at Villa Moda Mubarikiya was this cocktail dress encased with matt gold sequins from Yves Saint Laurent 's Fall 2006 Ready-to-Wear. The dress has a retro chic feel to it and major "standout" factor. I liked how the bow perfectly sits on the waist. And what makes it even more irresistible is the fact that It's YSL and hits two of this fall's trends at the same time: Sequins and bows.

The dress was originally priced at KD 3,524. Now it is marked down to KD 1,057. Definitely a vintage collector's item.

Villa Moda Mubarikiya is located at Abdulla Al-Salem Street next to KNPC's head office. Tel: (+965) 241-1072.

I'm totally with you in that it's gonna be high end vintage in the future. Still, I don't think it's nice to be honest. See that's the problem with sequins, a touch of them can look nice but too much of them makes an outfit look like bought cloth from Almbarikiya and had a tailor put it together. This is all the more apparent in this piece since it doesn't show too much skill in tailoring. Note the sleeves for examples. They're very bla. Just hangin' off like that with no shape. I don't know hun I'd say this is a no go.
Yulla what else did you see!? :D
