I've been waiting to wear this outfit, which I ordered via a friend from an exhibition in Dubai - a beautifully embroidered Sana Safinaz suit. I ordered a couple of these suits together last year and had been saving them for after I got married to wear them, and have finally been getting them out while I still can!
This is the outfit, I wanted to show how delicate and tight-knit the embroidery is in this outfit, as well as how well stitched the whole thing is. I love the beautiful ferozi (turquoise or sea blue) colour, contrasted with white and hot pink embroidery.
This is how I accessorised the outfit, I didn't want to wear a hot pink scarf with it, so picked a dusky pink hijab and matching heels to soften the look. I also found some perfect matching bangles from Pakistan which had been sent to me, in pink and sea green, which gave a playful touch. And of course, I had to add this clutch for a sparkly addition!
This is how I wore it, excuse the silly poses, I had to make my husband take these again and he kept asking my why I was doing stupid poses and making me laugh. I love how the outfit fit on me, it was fitted without being too tight, and the heavy embroidery made it hang nicely.

It was lovely wearing such a well-made suit, my mum and husband loved it (both of their favourite colours are ferozi!) and it was nice to wear something that wasn't blingy for once. This is a perfect outfit for a summer's day as well, and I imagine I'll get a lot of wear out of it in the coming summer. While I can see that shorter hems are slowly creeping back into Pakistani fashion, this still feels like a very wearable, classic outfit, so I'm not worried about it looking outdated!
