Zara Winter Mini Haul

I don’t shop at Zara much but whenever I do, I always come across one or two pieces from the haul, that end up becoming staples in my wardrobe! I’ve never been to the Avenues branch of Zara before, but I decided to check it out (on a whim), and ended getting a really cool Navy Blue Midi Skirt with Contrasting Stripes, a gorgeous Navy Blue Chenille Sweater, and the same Chenille Sweater in Dusty Pink. I’m pretty much obsessed with everything I got, the Chenille Sweaters especially (feels like I’m walking around snuggled up in an ultra-luxe, fluffy, cloud of softness)!

Mango Haulage

I was walking past Mango (Avenues) when something in there caught my eye and I decided to go in. I’d like to preface this by saying that I don’t recall ever purchasing something from Mango in the past, let alone several somethings. What I’m saying is this was pretty much my first Mango haul ever. At first the sales assistants left me alone as I did my usual lap around the store, save for giving me the stink-eye as if to say “What is this homeless-looking person (unruly curls, not a stitch of makeup, t-shirt, jeans, flats, and a backpack) doing in our store?” but once I had a huge pile of clothes, they all started hovering around me asking me if I needed any help (which I find extremely annoying because I prefer shopping in peace) so I put them to work by handing them my clothes to hang in the changing room for me as I continued my lap in peace.

H&M Black Wide-Leg Pants

I finally got the Black Wide-Leg Pants that I’ve been obsessing over! I first saw these pants at the Avenues Phase III Branch of H&M (directly across from Harvey Nichols) but they were too small, which is why I decided to visit the Salmiya Branch of H&M but never found them (I don’t believe they were ever stocked over there) but finally hauled them from the Avenues Phase II Branch (across from Shake Shack).

H&M Clothing Haulage (Salmiya Branch)

The last time I was at H&M (Avenues Phase III) I fell in love with these gorgeous flowy Pants. Sadly, there was just the one (last piece) and it was about 100 sizes too small. As such, I decided to hit up all the other H&M branches to hunt down those Pants. Unfortunately, I didn’t find them at Salmiya Branch either (no one knew what I was talking about) but I did get a handful of really good pieces.

H&M Buy Two Get One Free (Avenues, Phase III Branch)

According to the Priveleges App, that I’d downloaded on my phone earlier, H&M’s collaboration with The Weeknd was just released in stores (beginning of March). Since I was pretty much obsessed with Starboy (mainly because of Daft Punk), I made time to go check out the collection at H&M (Phase III Branch). I wasn’t impressed with what was left (which had been very picked over) but I did find several exciting new pieces (that had nothing to do with The Weeknd‘s collab) and H&M also happened to be having a Buy Two Get One Free deal going on.

Zara Haul

I used to shop at Zara all the time, but for some reason I just stopped shopping there. In fact, bar the one time I went in there looking for a Zara City Bag (but didn’t find it) and ended up getting Zara Black Peony EDT, I haven’t been there in years. It’s not like I rarely shop there anymore. It’s more like I never shop there anymore.

With that being said, I loved my Zara Black Peony fragrance so much that once it was almost finished, I went back to get another (but I couldn’t find it, either) and ended up with two other Zara fragrances. While I was there, I noticed all the pretty clothes and it occurred to me that I should really start shopping at Zara again. I don’t even know why I stopped shopping there, for all those years. I mean during college, my wardrobe mostly consisted of pieces from Zara (short-sleeve shirts, graphic tees, and embroidered denim jeans, etc…). For the record, in the past, I’ve only ever visited the Zara branch at Souk Sharq. As such, everything in this haul was also purchased from that same branch.
