Pakistani Style: Khaadi Kurta's= Love

Out of all the boutique's in Lahore Khaadi is my favourite! I'm pretty much obsessed with it. It was my birthday a week ago and I got two new Kurta's. Yay! One I purchased myself. 

(Post's like these might be helpful for those Pakistani's who live abroad and want to know what the latest fashion these days is.It could also be helpful for all those who live here and haven't been to Khaadi in a while.)

My friend Aroosa and I were supposed to be window shopping the day I bought this one. I went to try a couple of the kurta's just for the sake of it, and both of us fell in love with this one. Obviously both of us gave in to the temptation (ha!ha!That does not sound right :p). 
 I also got this for my best friend who lives in Dubai. I showed it to my aunt and the next day she got one for herself as well.
This pretty white and blue frock has really exaggerated dropped corners and pleats on the sleeve and above the chest. 

Even though it looks really simple, when paired with white tights or churidaar it looks so GOOD!

This is one my birthday presents. This is something I wouldn't have gotten for myself. That is why I'm so happy I got it as a present because I got to try something I wouldn't have picked out for myself and still love it. I pair it with black tights. It's really loose and has a hint of dropped corners. The sleeves can either be worn normally or buttoned up half way.

I got this as a birthday present as well. I wore it to a friends get together last weekend and it got so many compliments. This is probably my favourite out of the three. This one has a dropped corner thingy in the middle which has pretty thread work tracing all around it. 

I haven't been to Generation in ages. Their quality has deteriorated so much this year. I would love to know which of the two you prefer, Khaadi or Generation?
Is there anything in Khaadi that is on your wishlist. (I have one on mine)

NOTD: Bourjois 'So Laque Ultra Shine' in Rouge Diva

Since I'm blogging after what feels like forever, I though I'd start with something small. A NOTD post seems perfect for my plunge back in to the blogging world.

I've been lusting after dark nail colours ever since YouTube beauty guru's started sporting them on their nails in the beginning of fall. My nail polish collection mostly consists of bright summery colours and I've been putting off buying any 'winter/fall' colours because I couldn't justify adding to my already large collection (and winter has barely started in Lahore). My sister and I stopped by the Bourjois counter a few days ago and I told her to get this colour for herself. Since then this is all I've been gravitating towards. Last night I was watching a new Juicystar07 video and she had a similar colour on her nails. (You can imagine the delight of this YouTube addict)

The Bourjois 'so laque unltra shine' is a little on the pricey side but I love the formulation and  lasting power (It's easy to love it because I wasn't the one who splurged on it). It  glides on smoothly, without streaking and it lasts for more than 5 days on my nails. Which is quite an achievement since nothing lasts on my nails more than two to three days at the most.

The shade I have on is Rouge Diva which is a pretty deep red.
Price: RS690

I'm Baaaaaacck ♥

It's been almost two months since my last post. Back then I was sure my camera would be back in shooting condition in no time. Sadly, the news wasn't good and I had to let it go. The mourning period is over and done with. A new camera (hopefully a pink one) is on the cards, but till that happens I thought I'd start blogging again. I missed it so!

New posts will be popping up soon  .
