Just in time for summer, Miss Selfridge is releasing a luxe white capsule collection that will be arriving at their Avenues store this week. Setting an ethereal and whimsical mood, each item is made with premium fabrics, fine attention to detail, and flowing romantic cuts.
Thursday Friday is a fashion brand with a sense of humor and an appreciation for luxury; a brand of canvas bags perfect for groceries, gym clothes, books, and extras. Take it shopping, or bring it to work/school. Pair it with your handbag or use it in place of one you can work it into any day look.
It’s fully lined, and the inner patch pocket keeps your keys and phone within reach. The chic handles are long enough to throw over your shoulder comfortably and soft once there.
This bag will wear like your favorite jeans. As you use it, the print’s glossy surface will fade gradually, personalizing the bag to the way you wear it.
Thursday Friday bags are available at Harvey Nichols at the new extension of The Avenues Mall.
I received an invitation from the very friendly team at Habchi & Chalhoub to visit the Geox store at The Avenues and take a look at the spring/summer 2013 collection.
It was my first time in the store; for those of you who are not familiar with Geox as well, it is an Italian brand of shoes and apparel manufactured utilizing waterproof/breathable fabrics. Usually, when I hear such terms, I assume that the privilege of comfort will mean giving up the style. To my surprise, the collection was on the contrary, stylish!
They offer a wide variety of heels, flats, sneakers, men and kids collection, as well as apparel. And what’s special about it is that every single item in the store falls under the breathable technique, from the shoe soles, to the apparel fabrics.
How cute is this wedge for sunny summer days!
The men’s collection is equally hip, trendy, and classy. Would make a perfect gift too.
Now since I recently had a baby, I started having a soft spot for little baby stuff; this collection was insanely cute! And the guys at Geox were generous enough to send me home with the cutest shoes for baby Yoyo! Him and I loved it very much!
Thank you so much Habchi & Chalhoub for the fun time, and your wonderful hospitality. I will definitely be seeing you guys again.
Geox is located at The Avenues, phase 2, beside Aizone.
We are only a few days away from the Kenzo opening in The Avenues Mall. As you may have noticed, the buzz for the event kicked off last week with the #KuwaitRocksKenzo campaign organized by no other than Noaf Hussein of PLT. For it, she chose 6 girls who she felt embodied the Kenzo spirit, asked each of them to style themselves from the Spring/Summer collection and pose for a few quick photos by MeBlogging.
The 6 girls posing for the campaign in the above photo were
Sherifa Al Roumi, also known as SNR Jewels, a jewelry blogger.
Yalda Golsharifi and Fajer Al Awadhi, founders of local label Bohemiah
Noha Al Roumi, founder and designer of local label NohaNoor
Afrah Bouhamra, a financial analyst with impeccable taste
Dalal Al Hajeri, Marie Claire Kuwait’s style spotter
Join the buzz of the town, and show them how you rock your Kenzo by posting an image to Instagram and using the hashtag #KuwaitRocksKenzo!
Pass by Kenzo at The Avenues this weekend to indulge in their women’s wear Spring/Summer collection and enjoy the vibrant colors, and put your hands on those infamous coveted tiger tees and sweaters!
What’s better than getting a sneak peek to one of the hottest places in town?! Getting that in style! Got an invite to check out Harvey Nichols favorite things, and how did I get there? A ride in the cutest London Taxi they sent to pick me up early early in the morning!
Arrived to meet their super friendly team, and see the corner they set up of all their favorite picks from the store. Gorgeousness!
With their wonderful garments, and the 2 stories store amazing brands, what makes me happy the most? Accessories! I’m such a sucker for statement accessories, it’s almost an addiction!
This layered neck cuff would look so good with a tribal print top or maxi dress!

After we indulged in the beauty of their picks, it was time to start the private tour, Nat and Adel from Harvey’s marketing team were nice enough to show us around and patient enough to answer ALL our questions!
During the tour, I took pictures of my own favorite stuff, so that’s mostly what you’ll be looking at for the next 5 minutes, maybe 10? 15?
Diamonds, shoes are the modern girl’s best friend! Really, they never bail on you, no matter how your size changes, if you gain some extra pounds or grow older, they’ll always be there for you, sitting their in the store, on the shelf, looking at you innocently, waiting for a new loving home!
Forgot the brand of this shoes, but it’s SUCH a hottie! I fell in love over heels!
One of the brands I was happy to find is LAMP (Love. Angel. Music. Baby) by Gwen Stefani, the lead vocalist for the rock and ska band No Doubt, and to me personally, a style icon.
Those Church’s loafers would scream out loud with a pair of jeans and a plain white shirt
This upcoming part of the tour is interesting! for women who seek privacy while shopping for a party gown, they have a private section! Complete with their picks of designer gowns to serve all tastes.
More interesting stuff? Their Personal Shopping section! All with 7 different suites and a dedicated team of personal shoppers/stylists to help you with all your needs through your shopping.

I got an invitation by the lovely staff of Vavavoom to tour the store and learn more about the products and the brands they carry, and to celebrate their social media kickoff as they launch their Facebook page.
Walked into the store, and from there into the events room, where they host different functions and special activities. first up, some yummy Dean & Deluca pass-arounds to start with.

We started with the budget-friendly section; Maybelline, L’oreal, Max Factor, Bourjois, Pupa Milano, Artdeco, Une Natural Beauty, Hello Kitty, and their latest addition, Nails inc.!

One of the brands they pride the most; Hind Aloud, a unique, luxury brand offering the richest quality of perfumes and oils presented in a modern elegant image.
Would make a gorgeous gift to a perfumie! Wonderful fragrance and amazing packaging.
Done with the store? Not yet! Moving a bit to the back, we were introduced to Clarins Men grooming room; a place where a modern man can enjoy some quality time and a pampering dose with a whole lot of products of his choice! Sweet!
