Going to Dubai after almost eight years was a bit of a culture shock. So many changes. Also I wasn't a little child anymore (or just a fresh out of school 10th grader) who used to peak at stores like 'Forever 21' and wonder why would anyone want to shop there. Now of course I strut into the place like I own it.
When I was contacted by Zoutons, to check out their website, I assumed they were a clothing brand. But when we spoke in detail, I got know there were actually a website that helps you get amazing deals. I was honestly a little disappointed. Images of printed cotton dresses and cute blouses were reluctantly erased from my mind, and then I went on to check out Zoutons.
The great thing is, the sales and offers here in Dubai are pretty amazing as well, and I might just share my shopping haul soon. I'm still in the search for the best places to shop and the best bargains and discounts here as well.
Two words that have been severely misused this season are 'crop tops'. Wherever you go, Forever 21, Zara, H&M, or even those shopping portals you visit, all you can mostly see are crop tops! While crop tops can look chic on your favorite celebrities and on all these gorgeous skinny models, how is a regular girl supposed to wear one without looking too flashy and revealing a little too much?
Well it's already common knowledge, that the best way to wear a cropped top is with something that is high waist, whether it's a pair of trousers or denims or even skirts or shorts, so that instead of showing off your entire midriff, you show off just a teenie tiny hint, which is considered chic as compared to a little bit trashy.
Last week, Aldo celebrated the re-opening of their flagship store at the Mall of the Emirates at Dubai. The Mall of the Emirates or MOE is super huge. It was my first visit to this mall and I absolutely loved it!Onto Aldo, while celebrating their relaunch, the store threw it's doors open to bloggers and media and put on a fabulous display in the form of mini fashion shows and dances. A ramp was set up right in the middle of the store. Models dressed in dapper suits and some in white avant-garde bodysuits walked with Aldo's latest collection, featuring amazing shoes some of them from the Aldo Rise collection and also featured some cute bags. I particularly love the Selfie tote! Here are a few images and a couple of videos from the day.
