Shoe me another shoe

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Shoes speak louder then men do. You need to get some attention from the opposite sex then become more careful of the shoes you are wearing.

Choose heel huggers in shoes especially when selecting walking or running shoes. A snug fit in the heel of shoes is particularly important in helping to prevent such injuries as twisted ankles and knee problems. But it is also important because men flip flopping in their shoes is not a pleasant site.

Schedule shopping for shoes for a day when you have plenty of time. This will allow you to try on several pairs, and even hit several shoes stores if necessary. Men who think they can shop in half the time women tend to go wrong always. If you know the shoes brand you want, or if you need a very specific shoes style, you can call ahead and see if the store carries what you need, so you don't waste a drive. Prepare! Shoes are never an easy buy.

Wear the kinds of socks you'll most likely wear with the shoes in the future, and be sure to take along any bulky inserts or orthotics that you'll need to wear with the shoes. Imagination never helps but the right shoes.

Men get defined by their shoes quite a lot; their first impression is not only based on their shoes but is defined solely by them. Trust me I know.

Go pick the one that is just right for your hair texture and your hair needs; Bumble and Bumble doesn’t disappoint.


Color your eyes

Colored contact lenses are not a new concept; they have been popular for a while now. But what is important with colored contact lenses is that you pick the right eye color for yourself.
When you put in the expense of colored contact lenses you don’t only want your eyes to look prettier but you also want people to notice the change your eyes show.
Eye color that everyone notices immediately would be, for instance:
If your skin, hair, and natural eye colors have cool, blue-red undertones, you might choose warm-toned colored contact lenses.
Do you wear eye makeup? Choose colored contact lenses that will stand out from the shadow and mascara colors you like to wear.
If your natural eye color is brown, you might choose colored contact lenses in violet, green, or blue.
Color your eyes but for that intrigue you are looking for be careful with the color you pick. You wouldn’t want to wake up one morning with an eye color that looks bad!

Colors of marriage in Pakistan

Wedding is one of the most important occasions for any girl, and she wants to make it the most outstanding one. And wedding dress is a thing that helps make her wedding a special event. But as happens with all brides, they do not know what is hot and what is not; should they go for traditional or modern dress.
Usually brides settle on traditional heavy work wedding dress because on a very few occasions girls garb themselves in such beautiful and colorful dresses. But brides remember that profiles must be feminine. These days brides love pastel shades and whites for wedding dresses. Many designers combine the look of the modern world and the traditional wedding dress designs. The result is some cool designs which look very Pakistani but show some western influence. These designers select colors like red, rust, maroon in the winters and pink, cream, and gold in the hotter weather in wedding dress. Today brides prefer a contemporary look, a balance of modern with the tradition in their wedding dresses. Yet, there are brides who don’t mind being more colorful or going for the mix and match look. Fashion is creating and destroying at the same time, according to fashion designers so lots of colors keep going and coming in wedding dresses.

Brides pay a lot of attention to their wedding dress especially the color for that makes the most difference.

12th August at Beach Luxury Hotel in Karachi, Rado watches sponsored the first men’s solo show in Pakistan in over 25years showcasing the collection of Munib Nawaz, who recently became the first Pakistani to win the prestigious best men’s style designer of the year award at the Miami Fashion Week. The event was organized by Imran Kureishi, who put together a flawless show, the grooming and make up of the models was done by the maestro Khawar Riaz, who added a fourth dimension to men’s styling.

The event was based on the out of the box approach of the designer, Munib Nawaz, who was very excited about taking the risk of doing a solo men’s wear fashion show. His collection was called, Inspire Life, which took its roots in the philosophy of becoming and achieving a dream. Inspire life was all about going out there and getting things done, to live an inspired life and to lead a life that inspires those around you. The show was an early evening affair and very well attended with the who’s who of the media, fashion and music industry gracing the event, everyone was impressed with the management of the show and a punctual start.

The lights lit and the first entry at all men’s fashion show was Fayeza who trotted down in her distinct style wearing an ivory long jacket which revealed a short black sequin dress, setting the tone for the show, then entered a barrage of 20 male models who displayed the magnitude of the show. The choreography was “impeccable” as one journalist pointed out. The models looked stunning and still provocative thanks to the maestro Khawar Riaz.

What most inspires the designer are 3 elements which make him tick, SEX

Next was Power, which was interpreted as Black and structured, the designer created a line of 25 meticulously designed and luxuriously tailored suits. Gold waist coats and pocket squares confirm the trend of the collection. The suits were highlighted with their gold linings and matching waistcoats, giving a feel of the classic gentleman with an animal inside. This segment was uncompromising in every regard especially Chris Cornell being played at a fashion show gives it the unique Munib essence of rock n roll.

Then Sex was subtly placed in the wedding wear, the sherwanees were styled to look more modern without turbans and khussas. A slight refreshing take on an otherwise dull silhouette. This segment closed with Munib’s tribute to his country, as a model walked wearing a sherwanee that had the map of Pakistan on its back. This sherwanee was well applauded and the show reached its pinnacle when Iraj walked the ramp wearing a camouflage cape and added spunk to the show.

Overall a great evening with just the right mix of things, according to the designer, this was a “fully functional fashion show”.the event had it all, fashion, creativity, ambience, clean set, the right amount of people and ample glamour to keep your eyes on the ramp for the entire duration of the show. There was a great synergy between the sponsors, Rado and Munib Nawaz. Events like these show how 2 brands can synergize and create an environment which is subtle and classic.

Our Salwar Kameez are made to measure and are stitched according to the measurement you provide with the order. Therefore, you avoid any misfit problem and always wear a dress that fits you the best.

A salwar kameez can be with sleeves, or sleeveless, long or short like baby doll, with straps haltered or strapless. Our Salwar Kameez have stylish cuts and best fittings, they are ultra-modern and recommended for any event in your life.

Kurta Styles
There are a number of styles available in the salwar kameez, some of them pertaining to the shirt only, while the other concentrating mainly on the trousers. The popular kameez styles include the simple fitted style, Angrakha style, Anarkali style, A-line style and kurta-style. In the first style, the kameez is made as per the measurements of the body, making it as fit as possible, while allowing for ease of movement. The Angrakha-style has been copied from the musicians of the royal court. It has one side of the shirt overlapping the other, at the side.

The Anarkali style of kameez is totally fitted to the body till the waist and from there on, it is cut in such a way that there is a lot of flare, almost like a skirt. It is somewhat similar to the dress worn by the Kathak dancers. The A-line kurta, as the very name suggests, takes the shape of an A. It is fitted at the top and widens up, as the length of the shirt increases. In the kurta-style kameez, the fitting is a bit loose and there is a collar as well. It is widely being worn by the women of the present generation.

Salwar Styles
In terms of salwar, the basic styles include churidaar, Patiala salwar, Pathani salwar, straight trousers and bell bottoms. In the last two styles, the kameez is shortened in length a bit, going above the knees. Getting back to churidaar, it is a tightly-fit trouser, which has a buttoned cuff at the ankle and falls into folds at the end (looking like a set of bangles resting on the ankle). Then, you have the Patiala salwar, which has much more flare than the normal one. It drapes in an elegant mould, forming even folds from hip to ankle

Patani salwar, as the very name suggests, has been taken from the salwars worn by the 'Pathans' (a caste in Muslims). It is baggy at the top, but tapers down as it reaches the ankles. Apart from this, the salwar can also be altered to take the form of straight trousers and bell bottoms. While churidaar, Patiala salwar and Pathani salwar count amongst the traditional Indian clothing items, the style of straight trousers and bell bottoms is a result of the increasing influence of western cultures, on the country.
