Mermaid Kisses & Starfish Wishes

 MY OOTD: Outfit PapaDontPreach by Shubhika | Make up & Hair DressYourFace |

With the overwhelming positive responses on my wedding looks, especially the Floral Fantasy Mehendi Look, I thought of doing a creating a new Mehendi inspired Wedding Look as florals are over done now, so I wanted to come up with a theme that was completely unique whilst still being something realistic, something I would consider doing if I was a bride today.

Envisioning that this Mehendi event would is be set by the Beach. Btw is not a traditional Mehendi concept, its mostly just a party where Mehendi application can also be done whilst eating and boozing by the beach. There would also be a stall for the Henna tattoos in gold, silver and white colour.

I imagined a beautiful bridal stage decorated with shells, and starfishes, and maybe some green seaweed looking plants on the side of the Bridal sofa which could be a shell opened.

For this event, I imagined myself looking like a dreamy Mermaid Princess, a look that was a mix of fantasy & fusion. I worked together with my favourite and the best DressYourFace to help execute my idea. She kept the make up ethereal and fantasy and the hair we added soft braids on the side to go with the Mermaid vibe.

For the outfit, I searched for ages to find something that would suit this theme, finally I stumbled upon this PapaDontPreach outfit I knew this the one. The corset top looked like it could be a swimsuit or bustier that a Mermaid could wear, and the drama of the skirt is what really sold it to me.

Accessorizing it with peal and gold necklace and earrings to give it an ethnic touch.
I imagined guests to be in beachy dresses, with pearl or shell necklaces (since they are in fashion at the moment) or starfish earrings and men to be in swim shorts and vests, so very casual vibes.

This event would just turn in a party, with everyone dancing and just having fun. Like I said, its not a traditional Mehendi concept.

This is another list that I keep getting asked for! It was a tricky one to write as each time I visit there’s so many more new things to see and experience.

Personally, I think the best area to stay is Downtown Dubai or Sheikh Zayed Road, as its considered the Central area of Dubai. It’s basically the area around Burj Khalifa. But then again, it really depends on what you want from your holiday and ultimately budget will dictate where you’d end up staying. Im going to just list my favourite hotels, not because I would stay there but hotels to visit as Dubai focusses heavily on luxuries of life.

Fierce in Faraz Manan

MY OOTD: Outfit Faraz Manan | Jewellery Kamyen Jewellery |

Had the privilege of collaborating with the king of embellishment & pakistani couture; Faraz Manan. All I can say its that his collection looks even more dazzling in person. The intricacy of detail and beautiful embellishments and embroidery, which he has incorporated with Western silhouettes.

I love his use of soft pastel colours - beige, nude, blush, peach, ivory, cream, dusty rose, taupe, dull golds, subtle shades of pink and other muted hues

Blazer Comeback

MY OOTD: Crop top PrettyLittleThing | Shorts Topshop | Blazer Zara | Bag Topshop | Shoes Gucci | Sunglasses Asos

There aren’t too many certainties in life, but one sure thing is that the blazer is, and always will be, a wardrobe classic. A tailoring wonder perfect for adding instant smarts and working-girl structure to any outfit, it’s just a matter of picking your spring cover-up of choice.

This light transitional layer can be the finishing touch to a trend-led outfit.

Jungle Fever

MY OOTD: Dress Asos | Jacket Zara | Necklace Asos | Bag Gucci | Shoes Balenciaga | Sunglasses Asos

Let your wild side out this summer because animal prints are back and they are here to stay throughout Fall too! 

I opted to style this dress with my favourite Balenciaga shoes and Gucci Bumbag. These two main accessories have been my essentials all summer, and now too when transitioning to fall wear.
