Bershka Haul

I actually didn’t do much shopping for clothes this Winter. However, when I went back to Promod to pick up my Maxi Jersey Skirt (hauled here) after some alterations (it had to be shortened lawl) at Marina Mall, I spotted the Sales Assistant hanging up (meaning they were super new) the coolest Biker Jackets of life, over at Bershka! I made a bee-line towards the gorgeous jacket, all the while making excited cooing and squealing noises. Once I reached the magnificent jacket I just sorta’ gazed up at it reverently, while still making cooing noises, up until the Sales Assistant deigned to assist me with a “May I help you?”

After that got sorted, he pawned me off (I suspect my craziness eccentricity made him feel a wee bit uncomfortable) on a female Sales Assistant, who was way more eager to help (she did her job with such gusto!) making my experience at Bershka… a much more enjoyable one! I walked away with a stunning Biker Jacket, an insanely cool Biker Waistcoat, and a ridiculously adorable Furry Hooded Jacket! Sure, I plunked down KD 53/800 but you can’t put a price on cool (actually… kinda’ just did, but whatever, just go with it). Also, like I said earlier, I haven’t done much shopping for Winter stuff (justification). Also, everything I got really was just so cool! I think… I’m kinda’ in love with Bershka now!

Promod Clothing Haul

I was all the way on the other side of Marina Mall, the side I rarely frequent, the sea-side facing front of Marina Mall. It was the side that had Cinnabon and Decathlon located next to each other (lawl). I was actually there to purchase a Gift Certificate from Decathlon as a Birthday Gift for a friend (who was more than a little obsessed with fitness and exercise). Once I got what I’d came for, I figured I could hotfoot it all the way to the opposite end of Marina Mall (all the way to the back) to check out MAC and Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret (which were so very conveniently bunched together).

No sooner had I taken a step in that direction, when I spotted the most darling sweater of all time! It was all white (Ecru) with a sweet black ribbon at the back and everything! I just had to try it on. Once I set foot in the store, I noticed my beloved Red and Blue (Navy and Burgundy) Striped Print on a jumper and grabbed that to try on too. In fact, I found a multitude of truly lovely pieces at the french boutique, Promod. Unfortunately, as with most European Clothing Stores, most of the stuff dwarfed my 5’1 frame and just fit all weird on me. That said, I still managed to walk away with a Black Maxi Jersey Skirt (which had to be significantly shortened) and the softest Cable-Knit Jumpers of life!

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.
