August 22, 2011 by HumaRashid

This marks my last post featuring the Year Round Cardigan from Eddie Bauer. Recall that last time, I had to switch from the oatmeal heather color to the sea foam because the former sold out. My goal for this mini-series (hopefully the first -or second?- of many mini-series here) was to illustrate many different ways […]

MyShingle Fashion: Pulling Off Wide Leg Pants

May 16, 2011 by HumaRashid

That sounds a little odd, doesn’t it? I promise, this post is not about disrobing. It’s about pulling off a rather challenging look: the wide leg pants. Wide leg pants add width to the body, and so you run the risk of wearing a not-so-flattering outfit. Not so terrible in the grand scheme of things, […]
