Nude!

Hello, friends! How are we doing so far this week?  For us it has been quite a week. For one I had to watch the dentist pulled 2 very healthy teeth from AD's mouth (part of his orthodontic program) and the experience was not pretty. He had to go through this again in 10 days in order to pull another 2 teeth before finally having the braces fix. But he is in good spirit and looking forward to get this over and done with!

On a lighter note, I finally found the perfect pair of nude heels at a part sale in Harvey Nichols Dubai, after a long hunt.  This pair by Coach is comfortable and I was able to walk in them perfectly for longer than I expected! I checked the price in the US and they cost a lot cheaper there.  I paid twice the price here at AED 820.00 (about US$224.00) and that is AFTER 25% sales cut! I envy you girls in the States.. wanna trade place? ;D

  2. Cute! Love the colours (red and white)
    I have never tried a pair of Coach shoes. Do you recommend them?

    1. This is my first pair of Coach, never tried them before but surprisingly they are comfortable and well made. I actually bought a pair of Weitzman but ended up returning them as they are too hard especially at the ball of my feet. HTH!

    as long as you give me that Chanel pocketbook? LOL!

    So true, Coach is less expensive here :-)

  13. Hmm $224 for the shoes on sale? It seems about the same price as what we'd pay in the US. $299 reg price, 25% off, and in Chicago there is 9.5% sales tax.

    I love the natural tan chanel shopper! Thank you for the compliment on my hair, it is indeed my best asset! I am lucky to have my dad's thick hair..the man is 60, full head of hair! I was lucky to get it from him :)

  15. I understand how awful it can be to have healthy teeth pulled. I had 4 pulled when I was younger, just before I got braces. You look stunning in this outfit. I absolutely love your shoes and that amazing handbag!

  18. a nude shoe is such a staple - I wear mine all the time! If it makes you feel any better they'd prob be even more expensive here in the UK!

    1. I guess in every city, you gain some, you loose some. At least here it is relatively safe and lifestyle is decent. Fine if I have to pay more on a pair of shoes I bought once in a while :) Hi, to Mr K!

  22. So cute! I love the tiny detail on the shoes. It just adds a fun factor to an otherwise basic nude heel. I am loving your blazer too. And of course the bag!

  24. that is amazing the amount of markup there is! would US discount stores like gilt ship to your country? i'm never sure. i had a friend in portugal and often they would buy thigns and ship them to me in the us. i would then package multiple things together and ship them over to them at a low shipping rate. it saved them a lot of money. but i gotta say - these shoes are great on you so they were worth it!

    1. Many stores ship here but the shipping charges is another story. US$75 just to ship a clutch that costs US$160, appalling! Your friend is lucky to have someone willing to do that, must be a good friend. What I do normally is to shop on my annual visit the US but sometimes I need to replenish especially my skincare. I paid flat rate US$20 with discount code from Saks to ship my skincare last week.. well at least it's $20 for 5 products, good deal :)
