Or a bad week, depending on whether you’re trying to save money.

You know how some weeks you go round the shops and everything’s just a little dry? Nothing new to tempt you?

Well, this week isn’t like that. There are new season drops across any number of retailers, and we’re sharing our decision-making pain with you by pointing out a few goodies worth your time. We’re sorry in advance.

Get personal with Dolce & Gabbana

Here’s one way to make sure no one’s wearing the exact same sneakers as you. Until the end of October, Dolce & Gabbana are running two pop-ups in Harvey Nichols at Mall of the Emirates where you (and your guy friends – there’s a men’s and a women’s one) can get your Dolce shoes and t shirts customised. That means hand-painted decoration as well as patches. We’re extremely interested. You’ve got until the end of October to check it out.

Shop local at Moda Operandi

You don’t need to tell us twice about an opportunity to buy from a local label. Luxury fashion site Moda Operandi has added a few local labels to its roster this week, and we’re only worried that due to the nature of their business, we can’t wear these beauties right away. MO is all about the pre-order, so that Bamba dress (Dhs2,056), Bthaina caftan (Dhs4,980) and Vanina skirt (Dhs2,260) won’t be shipping for at least a month. Worth the wait? We think so.

Shop some new season goodies

Shopping excitement at The Dubai Mal

Sure, it’s still much too warm to be thinking about autumn and winter clothes, but if you don’t want to be disappointed later in the season, now’s the time to have a look. Our picks? Olivia Palermo’s collection with Banana Republic (check them out at The Dubai Mall, after a quick browse at & Other Stories) and the new Marc Jacobs Slingshot bag (find them at Mall of the Emirates).
