Hi Guys, and a wonderful December evening from me to you. I love that the whole world is aglow with religious holidays and traditions being celebrated left and right and even though the news will emphasize otherwise, the world is not that evil, thank God! I know in Pakistan, United States, and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, folks will be off from work and school to travel and just relax. While some families like ours will be doing carefree activities, the rest of you will be hustling and bustling with winter wedding festivities.
Winter weddings are so magical-snow or no snow. The whole atmosphere at the event is calmer, quieter, and jolly, and with having the adding benefit of winter holidays and corporate shutdowns, the families are free to be merry and partake in ALL the festivities a wedding, especially a Pakistani wedding, has to offer.
Today, I decided to shed light (again 🙂 ) on one of my favorite American designers-Tory Burch. I love Tory Burch and Kate Spade, but what I like about the former designer is that it has a very New England vibe to it. While, Kate Spade is for those glamorous, ultra-feminine fashionistas, Tory Burch is for those refined women who like subdued designs and prefer class over glamour. And since it is an American designer, it is always true-to-US size .With Italian and French shoe designers, you have to order at least a size larger.
A Pakistani wedding has events trailing one another so it is crucial we stick to comfortable shoes since we will be spending hours standing, sitting, and of course dancing in them. The wedding events that have happened so far in Pakistan have ladies in more modern and contemporary silhouttes and colors. Gone are the chattapatti, pinks, yellows, and greens. It is all about the modern take on traditional wedding wear such as pastel ghararas and kurtas in dark colors such as black (?). Nothing wrong with this interesting change, although that means we need to freshen up our footwear too to suit these a la mode trends. I have curated some Tory Burch Autumn/Winter 2017 shoe styles that will look ultra-chic and continue adding a modern twist to structured peshwas, lenghas, and kameez with trousers/shalwars/cigarette pants/culottes.
Ready? Ok. So here goes:
I am in love with the Liana Flat Sandal (See HERE) and it comes in four colors! They will be perfect with a Umer Sohail or a Farah Talib Aziz peshwas at a Nikkah or a trendy Amber Gohar outfit at a bridal shower. Going to a daytime event? The Yasmin D’Orsay Flat (See HERE) has the feel of a rare Marrakesh marketplace treasure. Richly embroidered, it shines with shisha mirrors and beads that can complement any beautifully embroidered Ali Xeeshan or Nomi Ansari lengha piece. Since these are flat, you can sport them in any garden or outdoor party. For those luxurious velvet kurtas and wide-leg culottes (which seems to be the newest rage), the Tory Burch Miller Wedge Sandal (see HERE) are a perfect choice. The wedge gives height, is comfortable and is in metallic color making it a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. Lastly, I love, love (and I have seen these shoes in person) the Josephine Pump (which is on sale BTW!) (See HERE) because of the giant crystal-encrusted bows in the back. For those ladies who like to have these statement bows peek through a trendy saree or plain showcase them with a churidaar pajama should get ready for some compliments head their way. Block heels and platform shoes are so comfortable and en vogue right now!
Well ladies, in conclusion, please do not ignore your feet this wedding season. I am just a regular designer-shoe-obsessed-Carrie-Bradshaw type of modern girl living in California. While the outdoor weddings may only be held in this part of the US in December, I know there are women around the warmer parts of the world who love Tory Burch shoes and want to “stand” out from the stiletto crowd (nothing wrong with that anyways 😉 ). For international shoppers, Tory Burch shoes are also available at Neiman Marcus (See HERE), Selfridges London (See HERE), and Net-a-Porter (See HERE).
