I had a chance to drop in for the Breast Cancer Fundraiser that was hosted by Women’s Society and Development Club on Sunday, and here are some photos I took from the event. It was so much fun and very well organized.

Spotted a few Fyunka totes from Impression Boutique.

Fashion Fundraiser for Breast Cancer! by velvetrendezvous

The Women’s Society and Development Club at Georgetown University Qatar are holding a fashion fundraiser for breast cancer awareness and research in association with Qatar National Cancer Society. The event will be held at Education City‘s new Student Center, in the Majlis Area from 11 a.m to 3 p.m.

I think this is a great initiative. Be sure to check it out this coming Sunday!

I was reading Samaher‘s blog the other day, and I noticed she had some really cute shoes, from Milano of all places! I don’t normally give Milano a second glance, because I find their collection kind of..not my cup of tea. However, I was at Villaggio yesterday and thought I’d pop in and see if there’s anything I liked. I was actually surprised with some of the pieces they had.

R, picked a pair of these colorful sandals, I tried them on, they’re SO comfortable and right on the color-blocking trend. I might go back and get me a pair.

Available at Milano stores for QR 205.

Usually, Kuwaitis have the best ads in Ramadhan. This year, however, Qatar National Bank (QNB) came up with a series of ads that are somewhat on par with the Kuwaiti ones.

Check them out – this is the promo:

And this is the full ad:

The boys are so adorable and I love the message that they’re sending.

And this is for the Garangao, which is in a few days!

Great job, QNB!
