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/-
Look #2

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!

Jewellery:

Winter #OOTD Western/Eastern

Hi Guys,

I’d be showing you two easy yet chic ways to dress up in winters with a touch of both, eastern and western wear.

IMG-20160114-WA0004

Shirt – OUTFITTERS

Belt – OUTFITTERS

Cardigan – FORESTBLU

JEANS – STONEAGE

SHOES – FORESTBLU

IMG-20160114-WA0003

Pattern cardigans are pretty much  in this season and that is exactly why I designed this outfit around one. This red, blue and white tribal print cardigan was my pick from FORESTBLU’s winter collection and so were these extremely comfortable Uggs. I cannot even explain how warm and comfy they’re, a total must have for this chilly season.

Do check FORESTBLU out on Facebook & Instagram

For the second outfit  I went for a eastern look :

IMG-20160115-WA0013

Kurta – COCOBYZARASHAHJAHAN

Tights – HANGTEN

Khussas – From a local shop in Islamabad

IMG-20160115-WA0008

I got this beige and green floral kurta from COCO BY ZARA SHAHJAHAN and I  paired it with a skin colored tight from hang ten and a green plain khussa from a local shop. For a change I rope braided my hair on each side as I decided to also add some new hairstyles while doing these usual OOTD’s. Loved how the kurta was infused with both a floral and a geometrical pattern, this is what makes Zara Shahjahan distinct from other brands and is the main reason why I love it so much!

Also, do check out Coco by Zara Shahjahan on Facebook & Instagram.

OOTD – Kayseria

Hi guys, I recently got some beautiful clothes from Kayseria and here’s how I styled them below;

Top – House of Chenab
Pant – fashioncity

This blue printed short length jacket caught my eye as soon as I entered the store and I knew exactly how i’ll wear it; with an all black, ofcoure! I personally believe this jacket would look really good with a pink shirt/suit as well.

 

Shirt – Kayseris    Rs 3790/
Trouser  – Kayseria
Shoes – Coral

As white is my all time favorite I really liked this floral embelished white kurta and thought of styling it with an old dupatta which is also from Kayseria and looks pretty good with it in my opinion. I absolutely love the flowery print around the border and the sides and the beads at the bottom are just a cherry on top!

Kapray’s Launch

On 19th December we attended Kapray’s launch in Centaurus which is the very first shop of Kapray in the twin cities. It was a fun filled launch with Uzair Jaswal winning hearts by his live performance and Kapray winning hearts by their beautiful prints!

Kapray consists of stitched and unstiched clothes for women, bags and shoes for both men and women, ready to wear clothes for men and kids, and some beguiling home accessories/decorations.

Totally loved the outlook of the entire place and their beautiful prints! Here are some of the pictures from the event ;

This 2 piece cotton satin suit immediately caught my eye with its royal print and vibrant colors, couldn’t resist myself and got it stitched in the same way it is in the magazine because the designing was so perfect!

Our second pick was this luxuriant bloom and the reason behind this pick was the green and lime, absolutely beautiful, color combination. The material of the suit is so fine that you’ll definitely stand out while wearing any of these prints, I know I did!
