My award-winning blog - my entry wins the blogging competition held by the British High Commission in Islamabad
So way back in the April, the British High Commission in Pakistan held a blogging competition - which I won! The competition was part of their initiative "Celebrating Connections" between the UK and Pakistan.
As a British Pakistani who started off as a confused desi and is now proud of being both British and Pakistani, this is a subject close to my heart. I had great fun writing this piece and was totally stoked to be chosen as the winner. I was finally able to sync diaries with Mike Reilly, the Head of Mission at the Deputy High Commission in Karachi (what can I say, I'm a very busy person), and was able to enjoy tea with him and members of his communications team.
|As you may have noticed Mike is VERY tall - at 5' 6" I'm no midget.|
|Me - in Layla Chatoor pret with my Britain-Pakistan pin|
|With shorter shirts, worked pants are coming into their own - this pretty pair by Ayesha Somaya are available at theit store|
If you’re serious about fashion, you have to love the shift away from three-piece joras. Once the retail sector realized that customers would buy just kurtas, they stopped bothering with complete suits and it’s actually great not to get lumbered with a matching shalwar and slapdash tie’n’dye dupatta. While it’s a relief to escape the tyranny of the matchy-matchy three-piece, shopping off-the-rack has become a bit of a challenge.
