Fringe City

It's supposed to be "fall" weather in Houston right now, but unfortunately that's not the case. I don't care. I'm going to dress like it's fall outside, damn it! 

My entire outfit is basically from Forever 21. I swear I tell myself all the time I need to stop shopping there, but I'd rather not spend $200+ on some trendy, boho-chic ensemble from Free People that I can get at Forever for way cheaper (still love Free People though).  

I'm obsessed with these printed pants because I can dress them up or down AND they're super comfortable. I should probably get them hemmed to my size considering I was wearing 5 inch heels and they were still dragging underneath my feet. I am the size of a minion though, so I'm sure it'll work better for most people. 

I've included links for the necklace, tank and pants. Happy shopping! xo

Pakistani Fashion: Asifa & Nabeel

I've gotten numerous messages about where I get my desi outfits from so I figured I should shed some light on my amazingly talented aunt & uncle, Asifa & Nabeel. Whenever people ask me where I get my outfits from, I tell them that my aunt & uncle are designers- and I kid you not almost every time I say that, the response I get is "Oh my aunt is a designer too!"...*eye roll* Literally everyone has become a "designer" these days. 

Here's a brief history on Asifa & Nabeel from Fashion Central:
The label Asifa & Nabeel is a creative consequence of ingenious efforts made by the duo Asifa & Nabeel, who over the last 13 years have not only established a name in the fashion trade but also successfully spread their network to three cities, showcasing exquisite creations for the fashion savvy and style conscious.

What really sets Asifa & Nabeel prĂȘt, couture and bridal lines apart from the rest of the fashion merchandise on offer is their incredible execution of cuts and the harmony between intrinsic motifs, numerous hues, tints and shades used to accentuate the female silhouette and express her sublime charms.

I decided to shoot my absolute FAVORITE Asifa & Nabeel outfit that I have countlessly repeated at so many events. Every time I wear it I feel like a princess. 

BIG thanks to Shazia Kazi for doing my makeup & hair in such a short period of time and Zahra Tiwana for taking the photos!
