How To Style A Satin Baseball Jacket

Friday, 17 March 2017

This year, I showed you two winter trends that I had been longing to try for a while. One of which was Choker Sweater and another was Olive Bomber Jacket. Apart from these, one other fashion trend that has been around for some time now is the incorporation of satin. Be it cocktail dresses, shirts or jackets, satin is in at the moment and is one material that will last through the seasons this year.

Karachi's weather is fluctuating as always and while summer is being anticipated, I am still not quite over winter wear. So, as often as possible, I keep pulling out jackets and cardigans from my closet. After seeing so many celebrities rocking satin bomber jackets, I wanted one too. However, I have been looking for a good varsity jacket too. As mentioned in an earlier blog post, finding trendy western wear, that too at an affordable price is difficult in Pakistan. So, I felt lucky when I came across this gorgeous Wine Red Autumn Lurex Color Block Baseball Jacket on Rosegal*.

This only retails for $23.15, so obviously it is not made out of real silk but has polyester instead. I like how the brand does have such details listed in the description box, along with the size chart. The jacket, however, looks beautiful, has a nice weight to it to keep me warm, and is of great quality. I could not find any stitching faults in it and the snap fasteners (tich buttons) down the front, click in place snugly.

My Experience At Mona J Salon And Atiqa Odho Cosmetics First Impressions

Thursday, 16 March 2017

Last week started off with a bloggers meetup at the Mona J Salon for Atiqa Odho Cosmetics. It turned out to be one of the busiest weeks of my blogging life till date. There are so many events to cover in Karachi every day and sometimes even more than one in a day. I usually do not do more than a couple events in a week but last week I just happened to be pretty much everywhere. You would know that if you follow me on my social media and Instagram and Snapchat (jadirahsarmad) in particular because that is how I always take you guys along with me.

Anyways, so this very meetup was on Monday, 6th March, and it was a great start to my week. Atiqa Odho, herself was present at the event and it started with Mona, who is the owner of the salon, giving us a bridal makeup demo as well as a day to night makeup transition demo. Then Atiqa explained a little bit about her range and how different things have inspired her to come up with the products and even their names. For instance, the blushes have been named after birds, the lipsticks after moods and women, powder pigments after gems, eyeshadows after flowers and face powders after coffee and edibles.

Spring Wedding Guest Dress // Pakistani Edition

Friday, 10 March 2017

Spring it is, isn't it? At least, that can be said for Karachi now. I am enjoying the mild weather and exploring the fashion trends for this season. Spring weddings are my absolute favourites as there is something about this time of the year that is very calming and the overall scene is pretty laid back unless you are about to sit board or mock exams. When it comes to Pakistani weddings there are just so many events from engagement to dholki to mayoon to baraat to valima to this dinner, that dinner and what not that you need to have a variety of clothes even as a guest.

What builds up the tension, even more, is when more than just one relative is getting married. This happens to me all the time as usually, siblings here decide to hold their weddings back to back since aunts and uncles from abroad are visiting or to just save some expenses but even then there are a couple of extra events.
