Hi! I'm Shabana. I live in Bahrain. I'm a businesswoman by day and a fitness instructor by night. I believe that dressing up is the easiest way of loving yourself, and this blog is where I journal my outfits and my life. If you'd like to know more, click on the About Me tab on top. I hope you enjoy my blog!

Recreating 50s glamor and How To Dress a Pear-Shaped Body

Top: Zara, Skirt: Own design, Earrings: Gifted, Bangle: F21, Clutch: Aldo, Shoes: New Look. Photos: Arif Feroze.

A contrast between black and cream looks so great. {Told you I was being influenced by Ancy's blackness}. The skirt already looks very 50s, and I love how the boat neck and the three quarter sleeves of the top make it look like I'm wearing a 50s dress instead of two separate pieces. I love wide necks that show the collar bone. I find that sexier than showing decolletage. The clutch matches with the red in the skirt and the coral-pink of the shoes goes with the coral-pink embroidered flowers. A bangle here, dangly earrings there, a vintage gold ring and a vintage watch completed the look.

I recently wrote a guest post on how to dress a pear-shaped body for my good friend Anne Maven, on her blog Poems, Stories and Humanness. She had been struggling with how to dress her wide-hips-narrow-upper body, and she also struggled with under-confidence while picking out clothes. I've addressed each of her issues in a detailed post on her blog. Here's a preview:

So when I wrote my wishlist series, I put down a wish to be fashion forward. The stylish and motivated Shabana Feroze of the vibrant Silver Kick Diaries read my wish/rant. She said that she would help me wrap my head around concepts for my body type. We went about it in a systematic way. She asked me about what exactly bothers me about my body, what goes through my head when I attempt to pick out clothes, and what exactly the discomfort entails.

I wrote her a long email explaining many things. I am my own psychoanalyst (in jest...) and told her exactly what bothered my mind... continue reading.

Have a read and let me know if you identified with any of the problems Anne talks about. Let me know what dressing issues you struggle with by commenting below and I'll see if I can address them!
