Kayseria x Bhari Eid

As impending Eid-ul-Adha approaches the fret of what to wear multiplies and by so many brands all over the place, choosing the ‘perfect look’ part gets very difficult. Therefore, to simplify things down we decided to unleash the looks we have chosen to rock, this Eid!

So guys, embrace yourselves to have a look at Kayseria‘s delightfully charming and enthralling Eid Pret Collection.

This Collection exhibits the art of fancy florals and ethnic Indian patterns with great aesthetic pleasure of embroidery work. Decorated with classic accents of Gota and Tilla, along with hand embroideries, the detailing and carefully crafted cuts are sure to steal the spotlight everywhere you go.

Look 1-

I opted for a lime green cotton net kurta adorned with embroidery and trendy straight pants with moti beads separating the bottom 1/4. Along with that, I wore sea green tussle earrings which according to me go perfectly with my look.

I went for the red/orange family coloured kurta with wide sleeves end and I  paired it with white bell bottoms with a patch of embroided chiffon at the bottom. To compliment my look, I went for very classic & ethnic ‘afghan styled earrings’.

Boasting a diverse color palette including the staple Blacks and feisty Reds, youthful Pinks and Blues, this Eid Collection is a star studded event that you wouldn’t want to miss! 

Almirah #FestiveFrenzy

I believe most of you think that Almirah only stocks eastern wear that consists of embroidered shalwar/kameez or Kurta’s but you’re all wrong, just like we were before we raided Almirah’s store located in Giga Mall.

We were shook by the embellished shirts and monochrome trousers they had in stock to pull off a complete western look. Coming from a profession that involves attending events all the time, we face a lot of trouble finding the perfect white/black/plain shirts & trousers that the others aren’t wearing or haven’t worn already (lol) , thanks to Almirah we found the perfect spot to shop these items from now onwards. Don’t believe us? See these items for yourself.

Told you!

Don’t worry they also have the traditional wear that we all seem to love & the best part is that their eastern wear is of both categories; they have plain white & black kurtas for people who don’t like to go out of their comfort zones & they also have heavily embellished and embroidered kurtas for those who love experimenting with their looks. Here are a few articles for you guys to see;

 

Here are the looks we tried while we were at the store ;

The most attractive thing about this dress were the sleeves, I absolutely loved them specially the fact that they have another pair of sleeves attached to them which makes it super comfortable to move your hands here and there & not to forget that fancy embellishment on the sleeves! The gharara pants are everyones favorite these days, I love baggy and flow-y clothes so that I can make boomerangs in them, hehe. Shirt: 6450/- Gharara pants: 2650/-

I choose this simple black shirt and tried it out with two different bottoms. The shirt was perfect to pair with absolutely anything, it had a longer back side short front.  The reason I wen’t with a white embellished trouser first was to create a monochrome look. I paired the same shirt with this cool dhoti type shalwar making it more of an ethnic outfit. I loved the minimalistic details on the shirt though it was very plain and simple but as they say once you go black you cannot go back.

Hope you guys liked these looks!

Eid Looks ’17

Eid is just around the corner and with it arises the question of what/who to wear this Eid? With so many brands launching their Eid/Summer 1 2 3 90 collection every now and then we wanted to make the choice easier for you and hence we collaborated with Kayseria, Concept One Studios & Faiza’s Salon to bring some Eid looks your way.

Adorned with embroidered Indian floral motifs, cross stitch and tilla work, the unstitched range explores the intricacies of the crafted favorites. It’s the perfect collection for those who like to play with embroidered patterns and like to add their own unique sense of styling to their Eid Outfit.

As our favorites were more in number we decided to further collaborate with U&K  and Aisha S to bring you these stunning outfits that we styled for Eid;

Look #5

IMG_0148IMG_0425IMG_0155
I don’t think I can ever get over white, I choose this white peplum top adorned with embroidered Indian floral motifs and paired it with sharara pants and a plain white embroidered chiffon dupatta. The look I had in mind was a very subtle glow-y one and this is basically why I went for minimal makeup and a nude lipcolor. I’m wearing embroideried peach khussas which you can’t see but trust me they went well with the embroidery on the shirt, lol. Not to forget the earrings that are by Kayseria aswell, they’ve got some really fun accessories so do check them out! Click here to buy this outfit.

OOTD x Jahanara

The super hot weather deserves something easy breezy (light weight) and beautiful at the same time like the ‘Dream a Little Collection by Jahanara.

Jahanara launched its first lawn collection last year and with its first launch we knew it was going places. The designs, colors and material all are of top notch quality and they’ve kept the prices pretty economical ranging from 3,850-4,050.

This time around they came up with printed trousers paired with printed shirts which was a total yes for us, as we were getting sick of those plain old black, white and skin trousers with every other 3 piece lawn suit. The print on print suits are perfectly balanced with floral prints on shirts and geometrical prints on the trousers.

Don’t be scared there is something for everyone – If you like plain trousers then they still have those as well!

Here is what we choose to wear from the Dream a Little collection for a lunch;

#Kayseria’s Timeless beauty Collection

Hi, guys

We’re here with a lawn review today, which is on the timeless beauty collection by kayseria.
Though people from the southern part of Pakistan have already been wearing lawn since February but we only got a chance to try it this very week.  There have been a number of lawn launches but we wanted to bring you something different, stylish yet affordable.  So basically this review is all about wearing a statement outfit that doesn’t hurt your pocket!

Kayseria has three lines to choose from that cover all age groups; the unstitched line , the pret and the ladli line. The unstitched line has a wide variety to choose from like the single shirt pieces , three piece suits with lawn, silk and  chiffon duppattas  ,suits with embroidered  patches and everything else that you ask for in a lawn jora. What we really loved about this collection was that instead of those embroidered patches that are unbearable in the scorching heat this time Kayseria replaced them with delicate bead work, it’s a very subtle yet beautiful kind of work that ends up making your lawn jora different , wearable and chic. There’s no compromise on the quality as usual, it’s of fine and breathable quality.
Here are our top picks from the unstitched collection;

The Pret line offers some finely designed and styled complete outfits,  trousers and kurtas in a variety of sizes.  The kurtas from the pret line are not just straight stitched shirts , they have so much more to it like intricate bead work , detailed and modern cut out sleeves, organza sleeves, laces etc. Trendy trousers; flared, plated, tight and a variety of tulip and normal shalwars.

Here are our top picks from the Pret collection;

Day to Night x Najwa

There are only some designers that do modern day dresses right and Najwa; a Moroccan designer based in Karachi is undoubtedly one of them.  Fringes, frills, intricate cuts and patch works, this woman works with it all!

Here are two looks we’ve put together for you guys from her collection ;

– Day Time Look –

This outfit is perfect for any lunch-date/brunch. The frills on the trouser and sleeves give a perfect touch of quirkiness and the beads add some sophistication to it, making this statement outfit perfect for any day time occasion. I paired the dress with pink pointed heels to add another color to the complete look.

– Night Time Look –

A perfect Teal embellished with fringes for any night time occasion. The cut on the sleeve followed by a knot was just a cherry on top of this beautiful dress. Black block heels and a bold choker completes the look for me, what do you guys think?

From Catalog to Reality

The Internet has revolutionized the way we shop and because of the weather/creeps/laziness/Insane traffic jams, more & more people these days prefer buying things online over the conventional method of going into stores.

There are numerous perks of shopping online like convenience, variety and not having to go out but there is one huge disadvantage to it which is that the product you receive looks nothing like the one you ordered online. Have you ever been conned by ordering something online like this poor soul right here?

If yes then you have our sympathies and for the future we’ll be sharing outfits with you that look exactly/almost the same way they do in catalogs & professional pictures because we say NO to false advertisements.
