Allyson got an invite to the official Karl Lagerfeld store opening at Lagoona Mall last Wednesday, 22nd April. Naturally, she thought of us going as a duo to represent our blog so I thought “Why not?”.
We visited the store previously during the soft opening and loved the bag designs Mr. Lagerfeld created because some are structured / classic (perfect for the working woman), some have prints or are in bold colors (great for pairing with a casual outfit) and some are inspired by his famous cat “Choupette” (to inject some fun to any ensemble).
This time around, we were glad to attend the official opening because they had the “Tiffany Cooper for Karl Lagerfeld” collection on display & for purchase. Activities were also prepared for the guests such as getting our lashes done using “Choupette” inspired false lashes, getting our nails done and getting our photo taken using their photo booth. In addition to the activities, various canapés were served along with some juices and water to refresh us.
Tapping on our experimental side, we made up our minds to get our lashes done. This lovely lady, Nicole, applied our “Choupette” lashes for us (she knew exactly what she was doing). We were amazed by the results because we looked so different from our usual selves. We don’t wear falsies all day everyday so this was something we were happy we tried.
We went around the store and our eyes spotted some items which instantly became our favorites.
While we were there, we met a few good people like Georgia (who stood out because of her purple hair!) from “Roza Hassad” and we talked about her life here with her family plus her work. She’s working at “Roza Hassad” and she mentioned to us that it is a flower production facility situated at Al Shahaniyah which is now also expanding plus dabbling into the organic farming of vegetables (here’s their WEBSITE for more info). We also chatted to the Area Supervisor, Nagham, who complimented us on our lashes and told us more about the store.
We immediately posted photos of our experience on our social media accounts (you have to follow us so you don’t miss out on any update). The highlight of our day that time was when KARL LAGERFELD and even CHOUPETTE replied to Allyson’s tweet about getting our “Choupette” lashes done. We were instantly both on “fan girl” mode and were on cloud nine because our tweet was not only noticed but replied to as well.
The day obviously ended on a high note! 🙂
