Prints Charming











Dress - Topshop | Blazer - TFNC London | Leggings - River Island | Shoes - vintage | Earrings - Gifted | Cuff - vintage (from Mughal era)


Hello, hello, hello!

I am in a great mood this evening, and as is everyone from England! It's because we've had such glorious weather throughout the whole of this weekend! It was lovely and bright with plenty of blue skies and sunshine. However, I will not dawdle on the weather, let me move on.

I am a sucker middle Eastern prints, they are beautiful, intricate and vivid. So it's a no brainer really as to why I adore this dress! The print was eye-catching, the length was perfect for layering with leggings and it was an all-round perfect addiction to my pre-summer wardrobe. I wore matte black leggings underneath, to really make the print of the dress stand out individually. I decided to add a cultural twist, as I normally do, to this outfit, by wearing these stunning flats I picked up at a street market in Pakistan. They were handmade vintage and effectively inspired by the Mughal era; definitely my taste! And finally, I thought it would be interesting to contrast the vibrant colours of the dress with a muted pastel pink blazer. The edgy shoulder pads adds and edgy contour to the outfit and heightens the posture.

You know I always include lots of images in my posts, almost too many! This post is no exception and I've included some of my photography of  fabulous rose bushes various other beautiful flowers. Recently, I've been glued to A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. My friend urged me to read this book, and her recommendation for this book follows suit. Mistry is probably one of the best contemporary writers of our time.

Love from,

Miss Iffa

    And thank you so much for your lovely comment on my posts and all the compliments! (I turned a very deep shape of red when I read it!) But I can give it all right back to you: You're a very beautiful girl, just enviable!

    I'm also deeply impressed by the texts your write to comment your photos.
    Your concept of not balancin between two cultures, but connecting them, is very creative! I, too, love Asian fashion and mixing different cultures - or learning about them. :)
    You have great potential!
