High class fashion & accessories in the world

Posted by Mark

There is this little Korean store located in my building that I am in love with. They sadly don’t sell anything I could buy but I love visiting it every now and then just because it’s such a weird experience being inside. The store mostly sells headbands and hair bows and god damn they have so many packed into such a tiny store. All the items are imported directly from Korea and there is a very quiet Korean lady who runs the store and is usually sitting hidden behind the counter. I think all these hanging headbands sound proof the store because once you walk inside it becomes eerily quiet.

I’ve never seen any customer in the store so I have no idea if business is good or not but they’ve been open for a long time now so they must be doing ok I guess. If you’re interested in checking it out, the store is located on the Mezzanine floor of Anjari Complex in the old Salmiya. Once you go up the escalator the shop is located on the right hand side.

Kim Kardashian’s launches Millions of Milkshakes in Kuwait

Posted by Mark

Tonight was such a crazy evening. Me and a friend headed to Avenues at 2:30PM so we could get into Millions of Milkshakes before the mall got crowded. Kim was supposed to arrive at 4PM but she ended up coming around 2 hours late. I wasn’t too surprised really since this was Kim Kardashian and I was expecting her to be fashionably late although I figured she might be around an hour late and not two. I was planning to stream Kim’s arrival live from location but for some reason the alleyway where Millions of Milkshake was located didn’t have a strong 3G connection so the video that I was streaming online turned out to be very choppy and low res. That’s why I decided to stop the live stream and shoot a regular video and upload it to YouTube instead. As soon as Kim arrived everyone went crazy as you can see in the video below. I have no idea why people over react like that.

Once Kim got into Millions of Milkshake things didn’t get any better there either. Although there wasn’t a large crowd inside people were still pushing and shoving trying to get to Kim. We stayed out of the way as much as possible and tried to take our shots from a distance. I then got some really great and close up shots of Kim when she was making milkshakes. Because the crowd was so chaotic they ended up changing her schedule a bit and I didn’t manage to get my video interview done tonight. I am disappointed but it’s fine since I know how unexpected events can screw up schedules. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it done tomorrow night at the gala dinner. On the bright side I did get my picture taken with Kim and I think she looked really hot. I took a bunch of shots tonight but my favorites are the ones below. Overall I had a good time tonight and I got to make some new friends. Tomorrow tonight things should be less dramatic.

Live Stream: Kim Kardashian at Millions of Milkshakes Opening

Posted by Mark

[Stream Removed]

I will hopefully be streaming Kim Kardashian launching Millions of Milkshake live on this blog at around 4PM. The reason I am saying hopefully is because the 3G connection in this part of The Avenues is very dodgy and keeps going and coming. No 3G means no stream. Anyway check back at 4 for the stream. If she’s going to be late I’ll update you guys with the timing.

Update: connection here is horrible so am killing the stream and instead will record a video and upload it right after the event.

Update2: it’s 5pm and Kim still hasn’t arrived

The North Face Now Open

Posted by Mark

I was wandering around Avenues Phase III today and noticed The North Face had opened up their first store in Kuwait (they’re on the second floor). It’s a good brand for anyone looking for outdoor and camping gear. Their tents aren’t very portable but their sleeping bags can be very compact and they’ve got a nice collection of soft and hard shell jackets as well as camping backpacks.

Harvey Nichols Launch

Posted by Mark

Last night Harvey Nichols had a very lavish private launch event which I was lucky enough to attend. I don’t go to many events but I had a feeling this was going to be different and it was. The night was filled with a lot of really stylish and well dressed people socializing and being seen. We were allowed to walk around and shop in the store if we wanted to while they had the most incredible seafood buffet outside the store inside Avenues Phase III. The mall looks really fantastic inside and they had small standing tables all around outside the store for us to gather around and mingle with friends. I even managed to see a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for over 10 years! It was a really great and tasteful evening and I’ll probably be attending more events because of it.

Prada Opening in October

Posted by Mark

I’ve gotten confirmation from two different sources that Prada will be opening at 360 Mall this October. I was also told a second branch would be opening at a later stage in Avenues Phase II. The launch date for the 360 Mall Prada store is currently set for October 15th.

Update: My guess is that the Miu Miu space in 360 Mall is actually for Prada as well.

Capital District and Slider Station Team Up

Posted by Mark

Local tshirt brand Capital District have a new line of tshirts which were done in collaboration with Slider Station. From the 3 different colored shirts I ordered the burger one pictured above since I thought it was black but disappointingly turned out to be brown. You can check out the tshirts on the Capital District website, the Slider Station ones start with “SS”. [Link]
