MyShingle Fashion: A Suiting Look That Goes Both Ways

April 19, 2011 by HumaRashid

It’s no secret by now that I’m a big fan of comfortable outfits. Even when I’m wearing a monkey suit, I’m always trying to make it somehow comfortable for me. For example, I don’t wear heels that are too high – or I wear a suit with pants that have been hemmed for flats, if […]

MyShingle Fashion: When Black Dresses Get A Little Boring…

April 3, 2011 by HumaRashid

I’m with you ladies – I love a little black dress. (A little black work-appropriate dress; it’s not like I’m recommending you wear your cocktail dresses to the office.)

MyShingle Fashion: Comfy Clothes, Fancy Flats

March 1, 2011 by HumaRashid

Most of my dress pants are hemmed for heels – they’re a bit longer and look great with my pumps and drag on the floor under my feet if I’m not wearing shoes. But for days when I have to dress up but just don’t want to deal with heels, I’m very thankful for my […]

For the Dead of Winter: Merino Wool Sweaters!

January 23, 2011 by HumaRashid

It’s mid-January, and those of us not lucky enough to live in warmer climates still have much of winter left to brave. This means snow and sleet and wind and just general, frigid miserableness.
