March 21, 2011 by HumaRashid

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 […]

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.

MyShingle Fashion: Lovely, Ladylike Dresses

November 24, 2010 by HumaRashid

I absolutely adore dresses, but I really go for the vintage look. I like sleeves, and I like narrow waists, and I like skirts that hit the knee. I know that’s what looks best on me, since I’m short, so skirts that are too long or hit a weird spot on my thigh make me […]
