Before my nieces and nephew moved back to their home for the start of the school year, I took them shopping for clothes and things like that at The Avenues.
FitFlop (2007) – Vans (2007) – Red Herring (2007) – Mixstar (2005) – H&M (2010) – Havaianas (2015)
Like I said earlier (dis) I was going to start unpacking some boxes (that have been taking up space in my apartment for quite some time now). I was going to be keeping what I wanted, handing down or donating what I didn’t wanna’ keep and trashing whatever needed to be trashed. There will be more upcoming posts that are similar to this one (maybe).
Technically, it was a few days before Valentine’s Day, but the title sounded nicer this way! I was actually on the hunt for some Herbal Tea (as much as I enjoy them, my pseudo-coffee drinks, they weren’t much help in the sleep department) which was the main reason why I hit up several branches of Sultan Center (Promenade – Salmiya – Souq Sharq)… on the same day… back-to-back (totally sane behavior).
I’d spotted these Mustard Platform Trainers over at Bershka earlier at Marina Mall, but there was just too big of a crowd (they had a sale going on) and I wasn’t about to deal with all that. However, I just couldn’t stop thinking about them! So, while at The Avenues, I decided to pop by Bershka just to at least see how much they cost. I liked them so much, I ended up getting the exact same pair in both Mustard and Black!
I also picked up 2 Dresses and a pair of Jeans and Leggings and a whole bunch of Trousers! While at the cash register, I snatched up 2 Packs of Ankle Socks and a pair of Earrings and an Eau de Toilette, to round out the haul, all for KD 104/600 (some of this stuff was on sale and some of it wasn’t).
In the interest of full disclosure, the majority of the models were around the 5’8 (178cm) – 5’9 (180cm) mark, whereas I am 5’1 (156cm) so as you can imagine, most of this stuff was much, much longer on me (story of my life lol)!
Accessories: Purple Aviators (most likely purchased at a random convenience store abroad)
Top: H&M Grey Knit Roll Neck Jumper (2017) + H&M Black Faux Leather Biker Jacket (haulage here)
Bottom: Topshop Moto Black Jaime Jeans (haulage here)
Shoes: MIA Midnight Stretch 3 Way Boots (haulage here)
Ironically, now that I could finally fit into those MIA Midnight Stretch 3 Way Boots, they were too old and were literally starting to fall apart (as evident by the shedding all over my bedroom floor, in some of the photos). So, before getting rid of them for good, I decided to wear them for one final hurrah (first and last, rather).
Again, completely inspired by this song (Youngblood), I pulled out my “Negan-esque” H&M Black Faux Leather Biker Jacket and somewhat new Topshop Moto Black Jaime Jeans! Since it was still Winter around the time of this pic, I wore my H&M Grey Knit Roll Neck Jumper underneath (toldja’ I practically live in that thing every Winter) because it was both comfy and cozy! I went out for Sushi (can’t remember the name of the place) where they served ridiculously delicious juice in adorable little shot glasses!
The Boots barely survived the “outing” lol and it was time to finally put them to rest. However, I wanted to take pics of the “3-way” aspect of them, so here we go!
