I cut my hair!!!! Well… technically, I was at the salon and the hairstylist cut my hair. I was taking my nieces to get their herr did at the salon for Eid and it was taking forever, so I plopped down in one of the chairs, and on a whim, asked the hairstylist to chop all my hair off! Incidentally, the woman who cut my hair didn’t speak a lick of English nor Arabic, only Turkish, and literally the only word I know in Turkish is tuz which means salt, so we had to basically communicate using over-exaggerated gestures and a lot of pointing, but we got there, eventually.

Girl’s Not Grey

Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators (can you tell by now that these are my favorite? lol)
Earrings: Call It Spring Gunmetal Triangle Stud Earrings
Top: Zara Grey Muscle Tee
Jeans: H&M Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans (hauled here)
Bag: Milano Padlock Black Leather Cross-Body Micro Bag (purchased from Debenhams)
Shoes: Multi-Color Bandage Wrap Sandals (purchased from one of the open-air vendors in Thailand)

I was supposed to get my picture taken so I could renew my passport and get issued a new driver’s license (‘cuz I lost my old one and kinda’ needed a new one asap because I’d gotten into a fender-bender). I didn’t wear any makeup except for the Givenchy Lip Balm (haulage here) and no jewelry apart from a pair of delicate stud earrings. When the guy took my photo, I was like “Who is this monster?” (kidding! The flash on the camera – or maybe it was just his camera settings – washed me out and I’ve already got sallow skintone, to begin with, so I looked pretty sickly). I told him to trash the photo and that I’d just come back later. The “plan” was to put a little bit of makeup on, for next time, but somehow, I ended up with a “beat face” (I blame RuPaul’s Drag Race)!

London Blues

Hair Accessory: Boots Black Velvet Scrunchie (hauled here)
Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators
Top: H&M I♥H81 Dark Blue London Top
Jeans: H&M Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans (hauled here)
Bag: New Look Black Leather-Look Buckle Saddle Bag
Shoes: Karmaloop Studded Black Wedge Sneakers

So, I’m somewhat of an Anglophile. I love British Telly! In fact, one of my favorite movies of all time is Green Street Hooligans (based on football hooliganism). I also enjoy watching everything from Sherlock and Black Mirror to Outlander and The Inbetweeners. Honestly, everything just sounds better with an accent. I simply adore the London accent (Cockney Rhyming Slang) and literally everything the main lead said in the movie The Kingsman sounded ridiculously cool to me, but I’m quite partial to a Geordie accent as well. There was this one show (discontinued, I believe) called Aliens… My God, it had me in hysterics from the on-set and throughout! British humor just slays me! It’s so dry and witty and I love it!

With that being said, I’m completely, hopelessly and wholeheartedly obsessed with British Reality TV Shows! I recently became a huge fan of Big Brother (UK), but I’ve watched Geordie Shore and The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent and so on, from the very start. You name it, I’ve watched it. My current drug of choice is a reality show called Love Island. It’s like a train-wreck that I just can’t look away from, so… pretty much crack! I’ve got a handful of Brit friends (in Kuwait) who actually can’t stand that stuff. Another thing I find fascinating about the Brits is their attitude! I’ve come across several large groups of Brits while abroad, and they always seem to be in a jovial mood (granted they were three sheets to the wind), and they’d literally break out into song, out of nowhere! I come across a lot of Brits online (Xbox One) as well, and their sense of humor is the best! I’ve been to the UK about 4-5 times and I’ve enjoyed every single trip, so far! For all those reasons above and more (but I won’t go too much into it now) I classify myself as somewhat of an Anglophile.

Shaolin Shuffle

Hair Accessory: Boots Black Velvet Scrunchie (haulage here)
Sunglasses: Red Aviators (purchased at a random store abroad in 2015)
Outerwear: Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here)
Top: Zara Black TRF Polo Shirt (purchased in 2006 – not 2016 – 2006)
Trousers: H&M Burgundy Overdyed Twill Trousers (haulage here)
Shoes: Studded Black Wedge Sneakers (purchased online from either PLNDR or Karmaloop in 2012)

Shaolin Shuffle is actually one of the DLC maps in COD (if you didn’t understand any part of that sentence, don’t worry about it). The Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here) – which as I said, looks like a cross between a Kung Fu Master’s Outfit and a Cheongsam (Traditional Chinese Dress) – was the inspiration behind the title of this post. I love this thing! It’s all long and flowy and just so cool!

Unfortunately, it’s a bit difficult to see (in detail), due to the horrible lighting in my bedroom. Everything looks much darker than it actually is. In reality, the Aviators have a bright red frame, whereas the Trousers are actually burgundy. I insisted on having dimmers and this (insufficient lighting) was the end result. At this point, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty much hopeless when it comes to this whole “Outfit of the Day” thing lol

Aldo Sunglasses Haul

On April 4th I found myself at Souk Sharq, again. While there, I decided to check out Aldo. I’ve always loved Aldo (both the shoe store and accessories store that are wall-to-wall to each other at Souk Sharq, which is just super convenient)! Before Aldo was available in Kuwait, my favorite cousin and I used to fly to Dubai and stockpile Aldo Accessories and Aldo Shoes for ourselves all the time. More recently though, I’ve become absolutely besotted with their Handbags! As such, I wanted to check out their recent Handbags Collection but ended up getting 3 pairs of Sunglasses instead. Also, I got to pick out a Choker Necklace for free (for purchasing over KD 15/000)!

One of the Sunglasses I got was yet another pair of Clear Aviators (so cool!) while the other two were Cat Eyes (current trend) including one of those Matrix-Inspired Tiny Black Sunglasses (also currently trending). Cat-Eye Sunglasses aren’t really my style (I’m an Aviators girl, through and through) but it’s nice to switch things up, from time to time.

Safari Style

Hair Clip: Scünci
Aviators: Louis Vuitton
Earrings: Call It Spring
Bracelet: Call It Spring
Watch: Aldo
Shirt Dress: H&M (haulage here)
Thong Sandals: H&M

Another Outfit of the Day post, except it was in the same day as my last Outfit of the Day post (I really am terrible at this) and I only switched out the Kaftan for a Dress and my Heels for Flats, so I could go out in the evening. I’m wearing the Shirt Dress (hauled here) that I got for my imaginary Safari Trip. Look at how cool it looks on the model in the photo and then compare it to how it looks on me and my 5’1 frame lawl That said, I like the H&M Olive Green Shirt Dress and that’s all that matters, right? (Right!) It took me a beat to find appropriate footwear, but in the end I settled on the H&M Thong Sandals. Now all I need is a Topless (convertible?) Jeep, to complete the look ^_~
