A quick OOTD post featuring some Pakistani Designer Fashion! I love wearing cultural clothes and thankfully so, I'm getting quite the opportunity to style them during my stay. Pakistani/Indian clothes have a lot of delicate details and effort sewn into them. They represent the most delicate and best handwork/craftsmanship on cloth that I've ever seen.
The top I'm wearing encompasses thick modern embroidery:
Omg I love this bag! I've been searching for a big bag that's feasible for traveling and daily use. Thanks to Leena, I found this baby at Aldo. It's so chic and stylish! It has zippers on the side which expands the interior but I prefer it zipped up because it makes it a little more compact. The details give it the 'Celine' look tehehe. Fabulous find I would say! I searched online but failed to spot it but don't worry, there were plenty in the store when I went.
So I've got some exciting news to share... inshAllah I am getting married next weekend! Now I know some of you may be thinking, "I thought you're already married" well yes I am, but we've only had our Nikkah (kind of like taking your vows - the religious part) done. On June 15th, we shall do our reception and inshAllah be officially married in the eyes of the desi (Pakistani/Indian) community, ha!
I wish my wedding was in the States but it will be a destination wedding in Pakistan iA! My husband is Pakistani and in order to accomodate his family, we are traveling to Paki to have our reception. I'm kind of both excited and nervous but I'm sure it'll be a great experience.
Anyhow, this should explain my lack of post on both Instagram and my blog. I've got so many last things to do, it's actually a little overwhelming. :(
If you guys have any words of wisdom for me, please be sure to share them in the comments! Also let me know if you guys would like to see a few snip-its from the wedding :).

Go easy on yourself, for the outcome of all affairs is determined by God’s decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee – Umar bin al Khattab ♥:)
