If you’re still hunting for designer duds on discount, you might want to check out Aïshti boutique located in the Avenues. It seems that AlOstura and Aïshti have the same display strategy. I hate how they display their merchandise and I don’t like to see clothes grouped by color. I prefer for the merchandise display to be grouped by brand. It makes it much easier for me to scan through the hangers, instead of all that digging that I need to do. Nevertheless, they selection in store was very impressive. I was surprised to find that they were carrying certain brands such as Vera Wang, Markus Lupfer, and Versus by Christopher Kane. So here are some of my personal picks. Let's start with this black sleeveless dress by Vera Wang with embellished details. Was KD 575 and now it's discounted to KD 403.
White beautifully tiered skirt by Vera Wang, look at the skirt's details on the back
Vera Wang black sleeveless top with pleated details, was KD 346 and now KD 242
A classic chic D&G lace shift dress with bow detail was KD 323 and now KD 226
For off-duty cool, pick up this white Markus Lupfer cotton tee with black velvet print. This top actually reminded me of Antonio Berardi’s dresses, like the sheer one wron by Gwyneth Paltrow in a red carpet event. The top was priced at KD 41 and now it's only KD 29.
If you feel like pulling an "Elizabeth Hurley's circa 1994" with a semi-conservative details then you might want to check out these laser-cut pieces designed by Christopher Kane for his Versus ready-to-wear debut. I'm in love with the slashes details held together with pink, red, and green aluminum safety pins. The dress was KD 491 and now it's KD 344. if the dress is too hot to handle for your taste, you can go for the black blazer shown below, the only drawback? It's still kind of pricey after the discount, I think around KD 400+?
I forgot who the designer is behind these gorgeous sheer peep-toe boots but don't they look stunning?!
Burberry baby pink ballerina flats with knotted detail are perfect for Summer AND Fall. And they don't cost more than KD 80 (I think they were even less!).
