Pretty Printed Pink

Did I tell you that I was into printed pants lately. Blame it all on the Indian women I see wearing all kinds of printed colorful Dothi (btw is it Dothi or Dhoti?) pants (think Harem pants). I was actually going to purchase Dothi pants or Patiala (those often come with a matching scarf) since they are so comfy but I always chicken out at the last moment. The Dothi pants I want need to have an elastic waist band (they often come with just a string waist and I really do not trust that), and I do not want them hanging extra low (I already have a big butt, I am not willing to accentuate it).

With these conditions, I am still looking.

But that did not stop me from breaking these pink printed capri pants that I bought last Winter. They are so bright and I was glad they still fit me. I wish they were a little longer but they are Capri so what did I expect. I think I will try to class them up next time I wear them with a nice blouse and some heels.

Moreover, I found what I can officially call the comfiest printed pants ever. I was browsing the clothes aisle of my neighborhood grocery store where I found really great stuff (who would have thought?). I came across these pants in funky print. I tried them on and they fit. They were also super cheap (299 rupees). I could not believe it. I took them home and I already wore them two times.

As much as I love these pants, I am struggling to style them. I came across different options but none satisfied me until I found my denim shirt. My eternal problem is that I want to cover the butt area and what better to do so with blouses and dress shirts. But there should be another way out there. I am not giving up because I really love these pants.

How do you style your printed pants?

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
