How to be a fashionista in Pakistan

Buy Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Vogue Magazines and just follow the new trends from A-Z [the fact that full leather boots might be tad too much in karachi winters, but then who-the-cares?

Wear designer. No matter what happens under the sun and the moon. [if its fake but looks real all the better]

Have manicures and pedicures like no one's business. People may be dying, there may be curfew in cities, TTP might be just around the corner – the hell with everything, the fashion cannot wait!!

Don large sun-glasses – the larger and tackier the more noticed you'd be – even at night 🙂

Have a Hand sanitizer in your bag at all times to ward off the germs that swarm the never-developing country you're fluttering in.

Visit local designer outlets and buy till you die.

Make sure you get in GT or Sunday magazine – with an inane smile and a plastic barbie doll pose – at least once every three months.

Talk in ENGLUSH…. Whaat??

Carry the most expensive cell phone, the bigger the better for size does matter. You will only be using its .0009% of its capacity is besides the point.
