Two weeks into DSF and I have seen plenty of the nice and a few of the not so nice, three of which had to make it to today's list of the good, the bad and the ugly.
Maybe you saw this. Maybe you didn't (and I won't tell you where to start looking). But I hope no ostrich died in the making of this gift set. For only Dh51 less than the original price of Dh205, it's so not worth it.
Rossini at Mercato is offering up to 75 per cent off shoes and bags. You might get a kick out of these knee-high boots in red, white and blue colours. And for Dh99 (the original price was Dh396), Uncle Sam would be happy.
Take a breather
There are plenty of names out in the market for workout clothing like these. Climacool. Dri-fit. Gap calls it Breathe. Running my fingers through the fabric, I can feel it would really be comfortable to wear when exercising. And for Dh39 (was Dh95), it lets your wallet breathe, too.
