Fall Connection

I'm happy now that Fall collections are hitting most stores, I’m ready for a wardrobe makeover. Check out some of my favorite French Connection’s finds for fall. The looks are very well cut, basic, casual, and budget friendly. This very mod-ish red dress would look hot paired with lace tights and heels or with knee-high boots. Price tag? KD 46.

The below mustard colored wide wool coat has a little bit of Marni/Mad Men to it. Price tag? KD 98.

French Connection is located at The Avenues phase I and at Marina Mall in Salmiya.

Four For Fall


I still cannot believe that 4 Boutique has managed to get Rad Hourani's collection for fall 2009 and it's actually in store now! That's amazing! Their fashion buyer must be really good! Rad Hourani made a splash this season with the launch of his women and men's collection of uber chic covered in black and leather clothes. 4 Boutique has also received Men's collection of Kris Van Assche (the latest designer for Dior Homme).

4 Boutique is located in Shuwaikh industrial area opposite to BMW showroom. Ramadan opening hours are Saturdays to Thursdays, from 11am-3pm and from 8pm-12am. Fridays from 8pm-12pm. For any inquires, please call (+965) 2492-5444.

Summer of '69

The Gap store in Kuwait has introduced it's new and the much-hyped 1969 Premium Jeans Collection. the collection is named after the year of Gap's inception. There were around 6 or 7 different styles to choose from. My favourites were: Always Skinny and the slouchy Boyfriend jeans. And their prices are very recession friendly.. not more than KD 35.. I think even less. I tried a couple of styles and the quality looks really good and they fit well.

Gap store is located at The Avenues Phase I, opposite to TopShop.

Bon BCBG Voyage

These leggings are not part of the "Bon Voyage" collection, but I liked them a lot. They're very fashion-forward golden metallic leggings that gives a modern twist to your look this season. Price tag? KD 52.400.

Webby Wednesdays: Nuwany.com

Ever wanted to shop around the streets and narrow alleys of New York, hopping from one local designer store to another. Well, we all do, but since some of you find this a far fetched dream, then you might want to check out Nuwany.com, your virtual gateway to everything locally designed and trendy.


Nuwany.com is the brainchild of a young Kuwaiti woman lucky enough to be living in NYC. She has fallen in love with locally designed voguish products and this website is a mere transformation of her passion. According to the site, Nuwany.com will only carry very limited amounts of products. This is why Nuwany.com will always strive to be the place,"Where Unique meets Trendy!". My favourite item on the website is this floral peach pleated tunic dress. And it's KD 45 only.

The Trenchcoat Brigade

I have two "un-Buberry" trench coats in my closet which I only got to wear a few times, but nothing beats a classic Burberry trench coat. The moment I put on my trench coat, I feel like I'm channeling Humphrey Bogart or Audrey Hepburn.. ready to roam the charming streets of Paris (as I don't get to wear it that much here anyways). It's best travel buddy for cold destinations and always makes me look chic. Price tag? KD 468. And honestly, I think the price is right for a piece that will never ever go out of style, so it makes sense to splurge a little on this purchase.

Burberry boutique is located at Arraya Complex.

It's All in the Details

I'm always on the eye out for a casual chic items as these what I consume the most in my daily lifestyle. And in Whistles I found some cute casual items from the store's new Autumn Winter collection 2009. They had really nice oversized and very Stella McCartney-esque knitted tops which would look very on-trend paired with leggings or simply flat boots if you're petite.

This squiggle applique orange dress is incredibly cute and its priced at KD 64.400. Ahem.. even though it's 40 pounds online! (correction.. it's 140 pounds! Thanks Bibi)

This shirred silk tunic would look nice paired with dark skinny jeans or dark stovepipe pants. Price tag? Around KD 50.

Whistles store is located at Arraya Complex, Kuwait City. You can check out their new and bigger collection online here.
