Sheer Disappointment

With immense disappointment, I’m compelled to bring to notice a very unfortunate act of plagiarism executed by one of the most reputable magazines of our country, Niche Lifestyle. I had never imagined myself to fall a prey to their plagiarism probably because I was a huge fan.

I would very politely ask them to take the image down. I’m still a fan but all my posts are in my own words from my own thorough researches. I would’ve let this one go but I work hard for my write-ups, my researches and my blog posts that are completely credited to their respective sources.

Below are the links to my blog post created on April 29th 2014 and their Facebook image created on September 12th 2014.

Collection Review: Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker

When it comes to reviewing fashion, it is pure passion but when it comes to reviewing fashion for a cause it is immense appreciation and pure love. Staying true to such genuine aesthetics, eyewear maestro, Warby Parker, is no stranger to the aforementioned term ‘Fashion with a Purpose.’

With a brilliant mission statement, namely, “We believe that everyone has the right to see,” not only does the brand cater to beautifully crafted frames and impeccable quality at brilliant prices but also partners with non-profit organizations to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. As a result, Warby Parker has successfully distributed over 500,000 pairs of glasses to those in need.

Working along similar lines, Warby Parker has recently and very successfully collaborated with supermodel Karlie Kloss to launch three stunning sunglasses through which a portion of each sale will benefit an organization dear to Karlie, namely, Edible Schoolyard NYC. Edible Schoolyard NYC provides low-income public schools with kitchens and gardens. Via a curriculum led by Edible Schoolyard staff, students benefit by learning the gears to develop healthy habits. In addition to this and keeping their main motive in mind, for every pair sold, Warby Parker will distribute a pair.

Moving on to the design aspect of the frames, the trio are an ideal depiction of Karlie’s main characteristics of being polished, graceful and full of personality. The brand worked side by side with Karlie to ensure that her welcoming nature and super fun energy is perfectly personified within the designs and craftsmanship of these feminine yet classic sunglasses that will simultaneously prove to be immensely flattering and practical for all face types.

The frames are constructed from ultra-strong and lightweight titanium in Heirloom Silver and Heirloom Gold featuring gradient lenses in shades of Violet Clover, Sepia Wash, Faded Slate, Copper Fade and Indigo Wash.

“Collaborating with Warby Parker on this capsule collection was an amazing experience. I’ve always admired their commitment to social enterprise and am so excited that our partnership is supporting Edible Schoolyard NYC’s inspiring work,” Karlie says while discussing her collection.

Co-CEO and co-founder Neil Blumenthal says, “We’ve been looking forward to working with Karlie, and not just because we’ve been friends for a while. Her enthusiasm, great taste and giving spirit make her a natural collaborator for Warby Parker.”

All in all the Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker frames are immensely practical, classy, on trend, and marvelously flattering providing an effortlessly chic look.
The frames are available June 10 online and in stores at a dazzling price tag of $145 each and a definite buy this season!

You can shop the entire collection here.

Happy Shopping!!

Spotted: Zahraa Saifullah in Mahnoush and Hermes

Zahraa Saifullah was spotted at the launch of Mahnoush’s spring/summer 2014 lawn looking immensely regal donning one of their lawn designs along with an Etoupe JPG shoulder Birkin. I would’ve loved to see just a tad hint of purple to offset that border on the shirt. A top bun and black pumps provided the finishing touches.

Below are some of my choices to serve as the perfect statement accessory.
