New In: Adidas Originals Superstar With Floral Trim

It would appear that my theme for Christmas 2015 is Treat Yo Self. 2015 has been a weird year, and I felt like I kinda deserved a few treats. One of which, I'm really excited about because it's my first Net-A-Porter experience, and my first real foray into the wonderful world of sneakers. 

I came across these Adidas Originals Superstars and pretty much fell in love. Obviously, as a living, breathing human being, I've seen loads of celebrities wearing white sneakers and I've come across dozens of pins on Pinterest. I like these ones because the floral trim gives them a bit of a feminine touch, but the colors are neutral enough that they won't really clash with much. They're made of leather, which I'm hoping means they'll be easy to clean, because I'm pretty terrible at adulting and am constantly making a mess. 

I found these ones on the American Net-a-porter site $80 (AED 293), which was cheaper than on the UK site, where they were £65 (AED 355), and on ASOS, where they were £67 (AED 366). I used standard shipping and were delivered to me (via Shop and Ship) in about six days.

Here's a link to the shoes, let me know if you get a pair!

The New Look Jumpsuit


Call them what you want; jumpsuits, playsuits, one-pieces, I love 'em. I also love black, and I love blouses with collars, so it's pretty accurate to say it was love at first sight with this New Look jumpsuit.

Old Navy Is In Dubai!

 
 Raise your hands if you're excited that there's finally and Old Navy store in Dubai! *Raises both hands*. We didn't have many American clothing stores when I was growing up, but now we have the Gap, Banana Republic, Forever 21, and even a 7-Eleven. Oh, and we have an Old Navy now, too!

A Guide to Shedd - A Shopping App For Dubai


Have you guys heard of Shedd? It's this really cool app that I've been spending way too much time on lately. The basic gist is that you can shop from other users; it's a little like a fashion flea market in an app, but much, much fancier. And selling on it is really easy as well, you just upload your items and people can contact you to buy your stuff.

A Weekend in Musandam - Part Two


Remember when I went to Oman a few months ago? I just realized that I never posted the second part of my trip. You know, because apparently I suck at this whole blogging thing. So here we go.
