BHS Spring/Summer 2014

Shot_02_163 copy

For some of us, BHS is likely to conjure childhood memories of shopping trips with mom. However, in recent years, BHS has been given a boost, restoring its status as a family favorite. Whilst great value products are at the centre of everything they do, a dash of contemporary style adds to the customer experience. 2014 is going to be an exciting year for BHS, with new ventures yet to come.

The new collection is clean and simple. The texture and fabric, color and print, are all beautifully explored this season in womenswear to create a collection of contemporary femininity that is sophisticated and wearable. Prints from a far field and closer to home offer something for the bold and something for the traditional. Ikat, zebra, and tribal in monochrome juxtapose digital floral prints in watercolour blue on white palettes.

Fashlink: Middle East Online Shopping Site & Designer Fashion Store In Dubai

001

I stumbled upon this online shopping site while browsing the internet and I thought it was worth sharing; it’s based in Dubai, however you can shop per country and see the prices in your own currency, with no need to use the irritating currency converter for every item. What specifically caught my attention is how reasonable their prices are compared to many online shopping websites with the same quality. They carry multiple brands  and very easy to browse through; below are my favorite picks.

Official Puma Retail Store Opening In Al Hamra Luxury Center

I was invited by Ghaliah Technology to the opening of the first official Puma retail store in Al-Hamra Luxury Center. The store is spacious and they are carrying multiple collections for men, women, and kids.

The men’s collection is their biggest; they have something for every sport lover, football, basketball, running, and even motor-sports.

The women’s collection is kind of small. But the good thing that I usually take advantage of in sportswear stores is that you can always rock a pair of shoes from the men’s collection.

Loved these trendy wedge sneakers

British/Turkish fashion designer and Puma Creative Director, Hussein Chalayan Black Label Collection, is available too! and it features some super stylish pieces with an urban-swift twist.

Usain Bolt, the man with the fastest moves now has a wardrobe to match, and it’s also available at the store, ready to be styled.

Look closely at the top and the pants one of Puma staff was wearing, cool isn’t it? well, it’s the same piece! You play around with the buttons and your top becomes your pants! Super cool!

Moving on to what I enjoyed the most, The Creative Factory. We had the option of choosing 1 out of 3 sneakers for a complete customizing experience! LOVED!

Took my pick and started playing around with samples of fabrics, colors, leathers, and whatever can cross your mind while thinking of sneakers.

Done!

Voila! Love love love my sneakers..Will be receiving it in about 6 weeks. Yay!

Thank you Puma and Ghaliah Technology for the invitation, loved the store, and enjoyed my time; will be definitely making more visits whenever I need an addition to my sportswear wardrobe!

Puma is located at Al Hamra Luxury Center, Beside Shoebox.

Collection of Style Autumn/Winter Collection Preview

When I first got my invitation to the private preview of Collection of Style Autumn/Winter Collection, I didn’t know much about the brand, and didn’t know what to expect. So last week, I went to FA gallery on time for the event, and FELL IN LOVE with the cuts, fabrics, minimal designs, that made everything so elegant!

Their fashion claim? Modern, functional, tactile, and timeless, and I couldn’t agree more; so classic, yet very futuristic, which gave every piece its own character and appeal.

They have a wide range of designs for each member of the family

Starting with these classy designs from their womenswear collection

They have accessories, that seemed dominated with the same minimal structure, yet, powerful statement

Shoes that I loved

Menswear collection

Mens accessories

And the cutest kids collection that looked very comfortable and trendy. Would be the perfect answer to many women who love to dress up their kids with style

Collection of Style are opening their biggest store in the Middle East at Phase 3 of the Avenues. Stay tuned for more details o the opening date. You wouldn’t wanna miss it!

Ramadan Night @Safat_Home

On the occasion of the opening of their new store location, Safat Home organized a Ramadan social media event dedicated to the local bloggers.

They offer a wide range of building material, home furniture and accessories for a complete home shopping destination. Will be definitely going back there with hubby 😛

The evening started with a presentation by Safat Home staff, telling us their social media plans for the month of Ramadan. They will be holding online contests for their fans and followers on twitter & instagram.

Then the fun began, our play time! We were asked to look into the envelopes inside these bags placed for each of us on our seats.

And this is what we got! A collage of images of items that can be found around Safat Home! The deal is simple, finders keepers! We find the item in the store, take an image, upload it to instagram with the hashtag #Safathome! The first person to upload an image of one of the items will take the same item home 🙂

And these are the photos I took! I found everything ‘with some help of the sales people at the store’ 😉

Wasn’t so fast snapping most of these pictures though except for one! And this is my winning 🙂

Thank you Safat Home for the invitation and for a light fun evening. Safat home new store is located at Shuwaikh, opposite Abyat. Follow them on Instagram and twitter @Safat_Home to take part of their ongoing contests.
