Centrepoint Collective Haulage (21 Orders)

As I said earlier in my 2020 Post (here), it had been months since I’d left the house. Much like the rest of the world who were under lockdown, I was going stir crazy!

Ordering groceries and personal care items and whatnot from taw9eel.com kept me occupied at first, but it just wasn’t cutting it after a while. I believe I was on Snapchat (which I used to “document” all the food I cooked because… quarantine) when I saw an ad for Centerpoint.

I was delighted to find any online clothing store that was open!

They had a proper website (as opposed to the pdfs and whatever from Victoria’s Secret) and they delivered (even if it was after a week or two after placing my order)! The website was easy to navigate with a few minor issues here and there (for example, the drop down bar).

The major issues I had though…
– There was a 15 item limit per order (which was annoying).
– The way my stuff was packed was a joke (clothes were not properly folded and boxes were open with their contents strewn all over the place).
– The clothes always arrived all dirty and dusty.
– Sometimes they delivered the wrong color or size or a completely different item all together.
– Some items arrived with the security tag still on them.
– Some items didn’t arrive at all.

My 1st order with Centerpoint was placed on June 30 2020

For my 1st order, I picked up a few Bras and some Camisoles and even a Sport Bra. Despite the description, the Bras had no padding or support whatsoever. They were effectively shapeless, which made them perfect for lounging around in at home, especially after a nice hot shower (when I wasn’t in the mood for anything restrictive).

I also picked up some Lingerie Sets (no clue why) which fit like an XX-Large and needed to be exchanged.

I picked up a few Dresses as well. The Blue Maxi Dress was so nice and comfy for Futoor during Ramadan 2021. The other two shorter Dresses I got more use out of when I paired them with my Sneakers and went out for walks around the neighborhood (when we had a curfew in April or May of 2021 and everyone was out walking after Futoor).

Lastly, I picked up a few T-Shirts. I wanted them to be oversized so I could sleep in them, which is why I got them in several sizes larger than my actual size. Surprisingly, they fit more like a Medium and weren’t oversized at all. I just pair them with Jeans or whatever now. The Black Hello Kitty Transparent T-Shirt was oversized and looked so cool though!

Basically, my 1st order was just to get a feel for the sizes.

Look at that. How sloppy is that? That’s exactly how my stuff arrived.

Kappa Black Sports Bra – Medium – KD 4/000

My 2nd order with Centerpoint was placed on July 4 2020

I picked up a few more Sports Bras (not that I ever work out lol) a cool Longline Top (which looked cool on the model paired with shorts) and a White Shirt in two sizes (I figured I’d return the one that didn’t fit).

I couldn’t resist picking up these gorgeous Pink Chunky Platform Sneakers! They reminded me of my beloved Fila Disruptor (haulage here). The color-scheme on the Pink + Lilac Sneakers stole my heart (so pretty)! I had to get them.

My favorite Sandals of life were the Multi-Color Bandage Wrap Sandals (review here) but sadly they were on their last leg (the elasticity was completely gone on the straps and they were quite loose now). That’s why I was delighted to find look-a-likes from the brand Kappa so I picked up one in Black and one in White, in different sizes (figuring I’d exchange the incorrect size later).

Lastly, I picked up a Heart Shaped Unicorn Hairbrush for my niece (among other things, bottom of this post) for her Birthday and a few Hair Ties and the cutest little Headbands (they had bows on them) for myself.

Wouldja’ believe each Hair Tie Set counted as an item towards the 15 Item Limit per order.

My second order was mostly so I could get a feel for their Shoe sizes (which were a bit off lol).

As you can see, the way they packaged the stuff was so sloppy!

My 3rd order with Centerpoint was placed on July 7 2020

I picked a few more Dresses and Skirts but most of my order was Jewelry or Accessories rather.

I had this inexplicable need to own Hoops. For the record, I’ve always found Hoops tacky, but I don’t know why, I had the sudden need to own some. They say, the bigger the hoop, the bigger the *** lol

While I was at it, I picked up some Anklets and Bangles and Stud Earrings. I didn’t clock the little light-up Compact Mirror (so handy!) and Cat Ear Headphones (so cute!) until later. So I quickly removed stuff from my cart to make room for them.

Thankfully, the little accessories arrived individually packaged.

Brown Aviators – KD 1/900 (Men’s Section)

My 4th order with Centerpoint was also placed on July 7 2020

This time, I picked up some Long Cardigans and a really cool-looking Kimono (all of which could barely wrap around me because they were so small and had to be exchanged for a bigger size lol) and an even cooler Animal Print Top and a billowy White Top (for when I feel the need to dress up as a Pirate?) and a cute Ruffle Sleeve Top (which turned out to be see-through).

From the Men’s Section, I picked a White Sleeveless Hooded Denim Jacket (it looked cool) and a Black Polo Shirt (classic) and a White T-Shirt (classic) because I enjoy wearing stuff from the Men’s Section and I like the way they fit (oversized and the hem covers my butt).

I got the Batman T-Shirt for one of my brothers and some Aviators for mahself (like a moth to the flame, I just can’t resist Aviators).

Lastly, I was a big fan of the show Being Human (this), the U.S. version rather and was pretty much crying every other episode lol So naturally, when I saw a Baseball Cap that had “Being Human” printed on it, I had to snatch it up. Plus, it was all white, which was pretty cool!

Basically, my fourth order was mostly because I wanted to delve into the Men’s Section.

As you can see, the Brown Aviators came with the Security Tag still on them -_-

My 5th order with Centerpoint was also placed on July 7 2020

I found this really cute “Sleep Dress” that had Habibi sprawled on it and another cute “Sleeveless Sleep Dress“, both of which I needed in my life (to sleep in)! The rest were all more Tops (some to sleep in and some to go out in, “if the lockdown was hopefully ever lifted”, I thought).

Inspired by Mera, I even picked up a few Corsets (which to this day, I have yet to wear) lol

For whatever reason, I even picked up Nipple Shields (the lockdown was making me crazier and crazier, I mean when and where was I ever going to need these?) lol

My 6th order with Centerpoint was also placed on July 7 2020

I picked up a White Ruffle Neck Flounce Dress (dunno why) and a Long Sleeve Top in Black and White and yet another “Sleep Dress” (anything I sleep in, I call Pajamas but whatever) a Crop Top (because Pink!) and some more Bras.

The rest were mostly Leggings and Jeans (since I’d picked up a whole bunch of Tops, I figured I might as well move on to Bottoms).

Lastly, I picked up a cute Hair Pin Set (despite it being gold)!

As you can see, sometimes the items arrived with the security tag still on them :/

The actual physical brick and mortar store was not open to the public yet. How was I going to get the security tags removed?

My 7th order with Centerpoint was placed on July 8 2020

My orders were starting to get more ridiculous. I ordered Silicone Cups (which had to be returned because they were not packaged properly)… to fill out my Bikini Tops… for when my friends came over to swim.

The rest were all Shoes that looked way nicer online. I mean the Lee Cooper Grey High Top Sneakers were pretty cool and the Lee Cooper Yellow Chunky Sneakers were surprisingly flattering!

That said, the Grey Slip-On Sneakers and White Slip-On Sneakers (exact same style, different colors) looked like orthopedic shoes (kinda’ ugly lol), which is why I figured they’d be comfy for the house or on my sporadic walks in the garden with my brother during the lockdown.

The Grey Snakeskin Sneakers and Blue Snakeskin Sneakers (exact same style, different colors) sadly didn’t look as nice as they did in the photos.

The White Chunky Sneakers weren’t as chunky as I’d hoped but were still nice. The Pink Running Sneakers were pretty cute though, as were the Pink Transparent Stiletto Pumps! As for the Gold Pumps, what arrived were Black Pumps in the same style lol (which I kinda’ liked more, so I kept them).

Lastly, I picked up some more Kappa Sandals.

Basically, I was slowly losing my mind with the whole online ordering thing, because this was clearly way too many Shoes.

Like I said, the way they packaged the stuff was so messy! The Shoes were all over the place!

Also do those Pink Pumps look transparent to you? :/

My 8th order with Centerpoint was placed on July 24 2020

Basically, my eight order was mostly repurchases (in the correct sizes this time) of the stuff that I’d had to return (wrong size, wrong color, wrong item, etc…).

Since the huge branch in the city was still not open to the public, I had to go to the smaller store at The Avenues (I vaguely remembered seeing it somewhere on the top floor) to return my stuff. It was a whole thing!

To avoid any issues, I took the boxes with me (because they had the order number on them and date and everything) to The Avenues. Each box had the stuff I wanted to exchange inside it. The boxes were huge! Thankfully, I found an abandoned shopping cart in the parking lot and loaded it up with the boxes.

Aside from that one time Mera and I went to the Starbucks Drive-Thru before swimming (June 19) and the day after, when we went to Five Guys to grab some food before the nationwide curfew (June 20), this was my first real outing since the lockdown!

It felt so strange being back at The Avenues after everything that had gone down.

For starters, everyone including myself was wearing a mask. It felt so surreal!

There were long queues of people waiting their turn outside every store.

As an added bonus, it was an extra humid day and the ACs were not working, meaning every store at The Avenues was basically a sweat lodge lol

Entering The Avenues with the shopping cart with huge boxes was an issue (apparently I might’ve been smuggling corona in those boxes), and I was stopped by each and every security guard and even at the entrance to each store. I had to take several minutes to explain the issue, all over again, every time someone stopped me.

It was hard enough breathing with the mask on, in the humidity, let alone having to repeatedly explain my situation. After the scowling security officer stepped aside to let me in, I thanked her and wheeled my cart all the way to the cash register (maneuvering my shopping cart between the tiny aisles was not fun), only to find out that I was at the wrong store. I was in Max which so very different from Centerpoint lol

Eventually, I wheeled my way to Centerpoint, where there was a long line of people waiting to checkout and unfortunately only two functioning cash registers. The humidity made the long wait even more unbearable.

Since the store was only a smaller branch, they didn’t have the stuff I wanted to exchange. In fact, they wouldn’t even accept the shoes and told me I should go to the bigger branch in Kuwait City. The stuff they did take though, they didn’t reimburse me for. Instead, they gave me a gift voucher for the same amount.

Even though I had the items already separated by order number, my turn took so long (which was super embarrassing) because they had to enter the order number for each item I wanted to return and I had a total of 7 orders worth of stuff and like I said, there were only two cash registers at the time.

I could hear the people grumbling behind me as the long line got even longer. Honestly, I was mortified! Thank God for the mask which hid my face lol

The very next day, I placed yet another online order (lesson not learned lol) for the stuff that I’d already returned (in the proper sizes this time).

I really had my heart set on that Red Kimono and wanted to wear it around the house. The Long Cardigan was for outside, if and when we were ever allowed outside again. The rest were all Tops I had gotten in the wrong sizes earlier.

I also picked up a few more Hello Kitty T-Shirts (forever obsessed with Hello Kitty) and some more cute PJs (both of which I loved and wore so much that they are falling apart at this point), a Bodysuit, a Maxi Skirt, Camo Shorts, Flip-Flops and these gorgeous Shimmery Silver Slides.

My 12th order with Centerpoint was placed on August 14 2020

I went crazy purchasing nothing but Dresses.

The White Smocked Dress made me look preggers while neither size of the White Shirt Dress fit properly.

Meanwhile, the Peach Shirt Dress reminded me of something Sandy would wear in Grease (very 50’s) which I thought was kinda’ cute! The Blue Striped Shift Dress I wore a lot during my walks outside with the kids after futoor in 2021.

The Blue Plaid and the Multicolor Plaid Dresses were actually quite short, with slits on the side, so I only wore them in the car (with my Bikini underneath) to pick up Ice Cream with Mera from Vermillion (here).

The Navy Shift Dress was so flattering when I tried it on! It looked so elegant and feminine as well! Sadly, the Navy Asymmetric Bodycon Dress was less flattering when worn. It looked all wrong on me lol

The Rainbow Color Block T-Shirt Dress was just so fun and cute! The Green Maxi Dress was gawjus (I’d had my eye on it from Day 1 but was waiting for it to go on sale) and the Smiley World Black Shift Dress was oversized and so comfy for Futoor during Ramadan during 2021.

My 13th order with Centerpoint was also placed on August 14 2020

… and I got even more Dresses, but also some Culottes (because I like to believe that I can pull them off lol) and some Outwear.

The Pink Maxi Dress seemed lovely for Ramadan and I couldn’t decide between both sizes so I kept both lol Same with the Animal Print Maxi Dress, also purchased with Ramadan in mind.

I wasn’t obsessed with the Orange Asymmetric Dress but it felt Ramadan-esque as well, so I figured I’d keep it. The White Utility Dress was a wee bit too short though.

The White Culottes seemed so cool paired with the White Boots on the model so I couldn’t resist getting them. I figured I’d pair them with my Forever 21 White Pointed To Ankle Booties (haulage here).

The Olive Culottes I got because at the time, they seemed cool.

The Tan Kimono was everything I’d hoped for and more!

The Blue Jacket was so unflattering that I had to return both sizes. It looked so frumpy on me!

My taste was becoming more questionable with each other order, because I even got a Brown Faux Fur Jacket! Who did I think I was? lol

Lastly, I picked up yet another Smiley World T-Shirt because it had a cute heart applique on the front which was rather large ♥

My 14th order with Centerpoint was also placed on August 14 2020

In another order, on the same day, I picked up a Sweatshirt that had flowers forming a heart, which I thought was cute (I really like Hearts, ok?) and a Grey Jacket (which turned out to be short) and a Black Blazer (which looked cool) and a Grey Sleeveless Hooded Jacket (which looked even cooler)!

I also got a Cream Shirt (I was developing a thing for Shirts, or rather I’ve always had a thing for Shirts).

On the more questionable side, I picked up these White High Waist Shorts. They were all shimmery and pretty, but unfortunately see-through. I kept them anyway.

I also got Green Pants (they looked comfy) and Black Leggings (for walking and whatever) and yet another Dress for Ramadan.

Lastly, I picked a stunning Printed Maxi Skirt (sooo pretty and flowy) and some fun Animal Print Socks!

This order consisted of these really cool Grey Textured Jeggings and more of that cute Smiley World Heart T-Shirt (I liked it that much).

I had to repurchase the really cool Grey Sleeveless Hooded Jacket and even cooler Tan Kimono (in the proper sizes this time). The rest were all Dresses.

I was becoming obsessed with White Dresses! I picked a few more. I also got a Beige Dress because it had a hood (so cute)! The Yellow Striped Midi Dress I wore a lot. In fact, it was what I was wearing with Mera the first time we went walking in Shaheed Park post lockdown.

The Plaid and Blue Dresses were cute but a bit too short. I figured I could pair them with Leggings or whatever.

The Green Maxi Dress was so comfy and felt like I was being enveloped by a cloud and the Orange Printed Maxi Dress was too gorgeous to pass up!

My 16th order with Centerpoint was also placed on August 20 2020

This order consisted of Blue Leggings and a cute Pink Hello Kitty T-Shirt and a fun Pink Maxi Skirt.

The rest were all even more Dresses (I clearly had a problem). They weren’t even my typical style!

The Beige Dress was a bit too Little House on the Prairie for me (but I kinda’ liked it so I kept it) while the Baby Pink Dress was just too frou-frou for me. It had to go back. After trying it on, I wasn’t obsessed with the White Dress either.

The Tan Dress and Brown Dress were more my speed! I thought the Striped Maxi Dress was gorgeous and even more so after trying it on!

I picked up the White Flowy Dress for next year’s Ramadan (2021). The White Floral Maxi Dress and Blue Floral Maxi Dress were very far from my comfort zone but I was really feeling them. They felt so feminine lol

Lastly, I dunno’ what possessed me to get the Blue Floral Midi Dress (possibly the asymmetric hem) lol

My 17th order with Centerpoint was also placed on August 21 2020

This order was more a mish-mash of stuff.

I picked up these really cool Black Woven Sandals and Animal Print Ponte Pants and Green Culottes. After my heart palpitations and whatnot, I wasn’t looking for anything restrictive, so the looser (more loose?), the better. The rest were all T-Shirts bar a Shrug and a Cardi and a Striped Tunic Dress.

I was getting pretty comfortable with exchanging stuff at the larger branch in Kuwait City, so I had no issue ordering several sizes and returning the ones that didn’t fit.

Rather than giving me my money back, they’d give me a coupon code for the same amount, which I could later use to re-order online from their website.

It wasn’t the most effective system but trying on clothes in the fitting room was not allowed anymore because of Covid so this system would have to do for now.

My 18th order with Centerpoint was placed on August 22 2020

I kinda’ overdid it and ordered a whole bunch of White Shirts. I think I’m pretty much set for life, at this point.

I also picked up an Animal Print Pussy Bow Blouse which looked so tacky online lol but I felt like I could make it work and I did (I wore it for Eid 2021)!

I can’t resist asymmetric hems which is why I got yet another Baby Pink Top.

I also picked up some Brown Culottes and Pink Leggings but my fave items in this haul were these really cool Striped Blazers in Blue and Black!

My 19th order with Centerpoint was placed on August 26 2020

This particular order consisted mostly of 3 Piece Pajama Sets which consisted of a T-Shirt or Top and Bottoms but also a matching Eye Mask (how cute)!

I really, really loved the Pjs (Unicorn Eye Candy + Eye Candy) that I’d gotten earlier (8th order) which is why I wanted, nay needed to get more. Their Pajamas were so comfy and quite cute too, with all their little slogans and ridiculous pictures (I mean a Unicorn Ice Cream Cone… lolwut)!

For whatever reason, they had a whole slew of new “Friends” Pajamas (as in the comedy sitcom) in a variety of styles. Although I’m not a fan of “Friends”, I picked up a few Pajamas from the newer collections and a bunch of regular ones (with cute slogans) as well.

I also got a Black Cami (which I returned) and a 2 Pack Camisole Set (because they looked cute) and a Black Mesh T-Shirt (I love mesh) and a Tan T-Shirt (don’t believe I’ve got many tops in this particular color).

After this particular order, I took a break from buying stuff from Centerpoint.

My 20th order with Centerpoint was placed on November 18 2020

A few months later, I placed yet another order online.

I clocked these really cute Ugg Boot look-a-likes in a bunch of different colors from Baby Pink to Black. Naturally, I went with the Black. They were quite comfy too (if a tad itchy).

I also picked up an adorable Pink Bath Robe (it had hearts all over it) and yet another PJ Set (Hello Kitty!) and a few more Tops (some T-Shirts, some Shirts, some Polo Shirts, some Blouses and some Turtleneck Sweaters).

Here’s where my taste becomes questionable again lol I couldn’t resist picking up this Red Faux Fur Jacket!

On the more practical side, I picked up a pair of Mom Jeans and some Palazzo Pants in both Black and White and some Black Track Pants.

I was super excited when I spotted these gorgeous Metallic Grey Joggers (the color was everything!) and just had to get them! They looked so good!

I got yet another Maxi Skirt (lost count at this point, alls I know is, I see a plain Maxi Skirt and I feel the need to own it) and a really cool Faux Leather Midi Skirt (kinda’ wish it was a Mini or a Maxi, but not a Midi) and although a bit frou-frou for my taste, I couldn’t resist getting this adorable Pink Chiffon Maxi Skirt!

My 21st order with Centerpoint was placed on July 5 2021

It had been 7-8 months since I’d last placed an online order with Centerpoint.

Obviously, they’d restocked a ton of new stuff so my final order with them was a mish-mash of a little bit of everything.

Final Thoughts

Like I said in my Quarantine Couture Post (this), I didn’t have that many comfortable clothes that I could wear around the house during the lockdown.

As a result, I overcorrected and picked up way too many clothes. The fact that their price point was so affordable (some of those things were dirt cheap, even before they went on sale) and the fact that I was going stir crazy, also did not help.

Their T-Shirts were great! They had a vast selection in a variety of different designs and colors. Their Blouses and Shirts were just okay. Their Outerwear was pretty nice too, especially those Blazers and Kimonos!

Their Bras and Panties were below average but their Sports Bras were pretty good. The sizing was so off on their Leggings and they all fit weird. Same with some of their Joggers and certain Shorts.

Their Culottes and Pants and had a much better fit and looked more expensive than they were. Their Jeans looked kinda’ cheap though.

Their Skirts and Dresses were great! Some of those Dresses were stun-ning! They looked like they cost way more than they did!

Their Pajamas were excellent! They had everything from cute random slogans to Hello Kitty and even Disney stuff!

Their sizing on their Shoes was a bit strange. It felt like they were missing half-sizes. Also, some of their Shoes looked quite cheap. They did have a rather large selection though.

If you’re ever going to shop at Centrepoint, just know that the quality can be hit or miss, but I did find quite a few gems!
