I have not updated my blog for 2 weeks or so and it was eating me as if I’d cheated on a best friend!! So here I am quickly tapping on my iPhone hoping the load-shedding won’t happen in the next 10-15 minutes. For all of those who do not know what load-shedding is- the practice of cutting off electricity in Pakistan for an hour or hours on end (mostly) while the corrupt politicians waddle away the country’s resources. This is a discussion for another time.
Anyway! Clothes in Pakistan are all about flamboyance, flare, colour and prints. With summers literally around the corner, every textile mill owner and designer is collaborating to churn out designer lawn after designer lawn. The thought of “aunties” salivating and running crazily towards these exhibitions just gives me the creeps. Hence this is one thing I intend to stay away from while on my time off here.
I love this dress mom got me from this local boutique that does ready to wear ensembles. You can pair it with tights, jeans or even the traditional “chooridaar” pyjama. I love wearing such flowing, flared and summery prints. I like the detail on the neck and at the back. The prints are similar to what the current fashion weeks were all about- lots of colour, prints and patterns.
Love this fuss free look!
For more information in regards to the clothes, you can always contact me. Till the next one xx
