On the biggest sale event in the region, it's only appropriate that I visit the biggest mall in the UAE. Check out what I found at Dubai Mall.
Look what I caught
Did someone tell Columbia we're here to fish for deals, not the ones with gills? On the other hand, there are plenty of pockets in this fishing vest to make you look like a walking wallet. Quite handy for shopping, don't you think? Vest, all yours for Dh230 (was Dh325)
Shoes, wonderful shoes
I've had my eye on these pairs of loafers from Gant all summer. Now these suede beauties with plush leather insoles are on sale at half the price for Dh336. They come in limited sizes and colours for men, but women have more options. Stylish footwear for the mad shopping dash. I like!
Stash your cash in one of these Converse canvas purses for Dh22 (was Dh55), the cheapest items in the lot. They also have belts for Dh30 and a collection of shoes, shirts and bags at half the price to make you want to strike a Conversation with your shopping alter ego about retail therapy.
