MyShingle Fashion: Stylish Shells

November 16, 2010 by HumaRashid

Winter is fast approaching, despite the mild temperatures stretching across parts of the country, and that means it’s time to pull out the wool or lined suits. And with lined suits come the light, silky, delicate little shells, because if you wear anything else underneath, you run the risk of offending the court with rather […]

MyShingle Fashion: Sleek & Chic Fashion Finds!

November 11, 2010 by HumaRashid

Styles this season are swerving in a decidedly minimalist direction: lots of tailored looks that create sleek silhouettes for an effortlessly chic look. I say ‘tailored’ instead of ‘tight,’ because I do firmly believe there’s a difference, although if you asked my mother, she’d be horrified by both words and insist they were an affront […]

MyShingle Fashion: Sign Up For the Military…Trend!

November 5, 2010 by HumaRashid

Did I scare you for a minute there? I’m sorry. The draft is no joking matter. Neither are our current military controversies. The military has been everywhere in the news lately – the Obama Administration appealed the stay on DADT, Lt. Choi attempted to re-enlist, the possible war with Iran, constant, near-daily drone strikes in […]

MyShingle Fashion: Without The Prints, Can It Still Be A Pucci?

November 1, 2010 by HumaRashid

The WSJ asked that last year – without print, is a Pucci dress still a Pucci? I only remember the headline so vividly because I remember seeing it pop up in my Hootsuite, and I remember kind of straightening and thinking, What?! A Pucci without the prints?! Heaven forfend! Because I say fancy things like […]

MyShingle Fashion: Full, Flowing, Flattering Skirts

October 28, 2010 by HumaRashid

The last time we saw full, fat, fluffy skirts was in the spring/summer of 2006 (or possibly 2005 – I get those seasons mixed up), and they’re back this year and dominating the runway – kind of. This time, however, we’re seeing their ankle-skimming incarnations: the maxi skirts! The maxi skirt is long and flowing […]

MyShingle Fashion: Trend Alert: These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

October 25, 2010 by HumaRashid

Great, now the old Nancy Sinatra song is stuck in my head. You know who was awesome? Her dad, Frank. His buddy Dean was my personal favorite, though. When I was 11, my dad rented “Scared Stiff,” saying that he remembered being a kid in Pakistan and seeing it and thinking Dean Martin and Jerry […]

MyShingle Fashion: Gosh and Golly, It’s Elie Tahari!

October 22, 2010 by HumaRashid

I should be taken out back and shot for my horrible rhymes. And for my use of hyperbole. But at this point, I almost feel that only cheesy, ridiculous, nonsensical rhymes can convey how much I love Elie Tahari. Last time, I talked about Pucci dresses. I featured printed dresses in general, but the inspiration […]

MyShingle Fashion: Trend Alert: Warming Up For Fall/Winter 2010!

October 11, 2010 by HumaRashid

It’s deceptively warm out there, and I, for one, am not complaining. I adore autumn, but I abhor the fact that it precedes winter…and is usually so short, not giving me ample time to resign myself to the first snowfall of the season. But the mornings are surprisingly nippy sometimes, even as midday temps hit […]

MyShingle Fashion: This, and That, and Colorful Flats!

September 7, 2010 by HumaRashid

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I blame law school, the Islamic month of Ramadan, and global warming. But then again, I usually blame global warming for everything, including the fact that my clothes came out of the dryer this morning still slightly damp. But as promised, I return with lots of colorful flats after […]

My Shingle Fashion: Awesome Black Flats

August 27, 2010 by HumaRashid

Flats are complicated, ladies. Okay, no, they’re not, but writing “flats are so easy that even monkeys can wear them” wouldn’t make for much of an exposition. Really, where do you go from there? Everyone is thinking of monkeys wearing shoes, and the gravity of the moment is lost. Flats are pretty fool-proof, it’s true, […]
