OOTD-Black and White Lace Outfit!


Well hello there! Welcome to the first outfit post of 2014, where I'll be talking less about my outfit and more about how these are the last pictures I have with my precious long hair. It was after these pictures were taken that I went to the hair dressers for a little trim to get rid of those pesky split ends that were bothering me since ages but instead got a full on hair cut! I seriously fail to understand why hair dressers don't actually listen to what their customer wants! Girls, just look at the length of my hair in these pictures, I'm left with hair that barely touches my shoulder now ugh! And the most annoying part was that she asked me AFTER chopping my hair from one side whether the length was okay?! Erm, hello?! Of course the length wasn't okay but what could I do, can't really roam around with half of my hair barely touching my shoulders and the others half mid-back. I've decided to chop off my own split ends at home, goodbye hair dressers, you will not be seeing me again, ever! *snaps fingers Tyra Banks style*


I guess I should talk a little about my outfit even though I can write at least a short horror story about how all hair dressers are the same when it comes to going out of their way to not listen to their clients haha. So basically what I asked the tailor to do when I gave this outfit for stitching was make it loose and flowy, so that the black lace cloth and the white embroidered cloth could look more put together when stitched on top of each other. The sleeves are a plain black embossed material and I paired this frock/kurta with my well used black jeans and plain black flats. Since it is absolutelyyy freezing in Islamabad these days, I had to wear a huge bear sized jacket on top to keep myself from turning into ice, which kinda killed the look of the outfit but I always choose comfort over fashion haha. 

Regular readers will notice the change in background which is because I've moved houses and this one doesn't have the stunning drive away that the previous house where I lived had, hopefully this isn't too shabby. Please do let me know in the comments below if this background isn't very appealing and I should look for a newer one haha. 

Until next time, tc :) 

P.S - Please don't take my hair rant as being thankless for what hair I do have. I realize that there are people in the world who are unwell/sick, have lost all of their hair and would love to have what hair I have now. It is a very humbling thought. My hair rant is written in jest, so I hope people will take it that way :)

  1. We've all been in that terror-ride and haircut fiasco. I mean are they Edward Scissorhands? Even he could control them. The hairdressers usually get carried away and fail to realize these are chopped in a minute, but take months to grow. I'm sure that you'll be able to rock a shorter 'do as well! <3 The rant is well-deserved, m'lady!
    Loving your vampy lip the most! Which shade/lipstick is it? So winter-gorgeous <3

  5. That really is looking classy. Your hair rant shows you did go through something "usual" that hairdressers do with everyone. I completely hear you. Someone once told me the hairdressers fingers start itching the minute they see a good mane. but hang on there.Does your hair go faster or take time?

  12. You look cute and elegant as always.The dress is so fabulous.You look pretty as a flower in it ^_^.Hair stylists have a mind of their own and no matter how much you tell them to ,"thora sa youn katna ,thora sa woon" they always do what THEY like. :( So sorry to hear that you had to go through this.
    This sad event calls for one minute silence for your hair :P

  14. It's reallllyyyy exhausting to cut your own split ends! I've been there for 4 years and finally decided to get the ultimate haircut last year. But yeah it's really mean of them :( it's one thing to be mentally prepared for a haircut but getting a surprise attack is another! I was mentally prepared but still I miss my old long hair that I could style with braids and stuff.. you can get some pretty hairbands or bow hair clips to accesorize :) that always makes me happy cause they look cuter on short hair.. and you can brush and shampoo them fast and easily now ^_^

  15. aww you look super cute! i dont remember seeing you wearing this length short frock style dresses in your OOTD posts (or maybe its just my bad memory haha), and now waiting to see your new hair look! :P

    p.s. the background is still great, and love the 2nd pic...very model-lish ;)
    [just a suggestion: put your watermark/website address on all of your pics like the 1st and 2nd one too.. :) ]

    I loved the previous place but this one is similar to my house nevertheless your beauty makes it perfect.
    I cannot stress enough on how hairdressers are so carless with their clients hair they cut them like they are fake . Love the frock and the material you used x

  19. It is sad to hear the horrible story of your hair cut. It is a coincidence that same happened with me before 3 days but thank God even though I lost volume but length of hairs is still there with minimum loss. Your writing style is so good. I invite you to visit my blog as well.
