Menswear: Christmas and New Year Outfit

 Hey Guys!

I wanted to a quick post on something a little different. Menswear. I can't help but love how simple but detailed a lot of the pieces in menswear is. Sometimes I catch myself dwelling in the men's section of a lot of my favorite stores. I find that a lot of the pieces I like aren't very loud, like you usually see in women's wear. It is all about the color and cut and in most cases of course, how everything is put together.

Here is an outfit idea for christmas/new years or any other parties you may be attending. Unfortunately, they are not the best of quality cause I did not have my camera that day. Before we get to the pictures I would like to thank my cousin Zubair, for being the 'model' for this post. You can check him out on twitter: zubs_k and on instagram: zubs_k

Now for the pictures:

Pants: Zara
Blazer: Guess
New Girl anyone?
Tie: Tiptop
Shirt: Tiptop

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and Happy Holidays to all!

NOTD: 795 Devilish

Hey Guys!

What can I say? Its been a long time. The past three weeks have been super hectic with finals and papers, and all of the other school related non-sense. Anyways, I thought I would show you one of my favorite nail colors for this season. Which is dark red or the so called 'oxblood' red color which apparently stands for oxygenated blood.Really, who comes up with these names? Carrying on, This was actually one of my most worn colors from last winter as well and you can tell by the beaten up bottle down below.

The color in particular is 795 Devilish, which was featured in an older post. The color is a dark red/burgundy color that also looks very vampy on the nails. It goes on pretty well after two coats and it doesn't chip that quickly on me and that is without a top coat. I definitely think it is worth checking out if you're looking for this particular color.

Now for the pictures:

My 'wonderful' application of nail polish (one day I will post a picture with perfect nails)

Let me know if you have any other good dark red nail color recommendations. I really want to try a couple colors out from the new Skyfall collection. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment down below.

Hope everyone has a good week up ahead of them and good luck to all of those hustling through finals!
