I was born and raised in England and moved to Texas when I was 8 years old. My family is originally from Pakistan/India and I love the culture, language and food there – so it is a big part of who I am! Professionally, I’m an attorney and practice commercial litigation. As an attorney, you can’t be too creative with your job (otherwise you’ll get sued for malpractice!) so I started blogging about two years ago when I realized I needed a creative outlet.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
Coco Chanel famously said that fashion is everywhere – in the sky and in the streets. I completely agree and find fashion inspiration everywhere! Instagram, fashion magazines, and people-watching. The other day, I saw a girl walking across the street and fell in love with the way she paired her boots with a mini skirt. I was inspired!
Which fashion accessories can you not live without?
I can never leave the house without my purse – I literally feel naked without it. It carries all of my essentials, including another fashion accessory I cannot live without: my sunglasses!
What other hobbies or interests do you have?
I love reading books and watching TV. My husband and I watch TV for a couple of hours every night and that is one of the ways we bond on a daily basis. We are super obsessed with Game of Thrones (House Stark, all the way!).
Have you been in an embarrassing moment before that is funny now when looking back?
I was taking an exam in college, and it was pin drop silent. Everyone was busy concentrating as it was a tough exam; even a loud breath would have been too loud. I had been drinking soda during the exam, and out of nowhere, I break the silence with the loudest burp I’ve ever heard on my life.
Everyone immediately turned around to see who the perp was – and there I was – mouth still open and in utter shock. I’ve never burped like that in my life and was mortified. At the time, I wanted to run out of the exam but now looking back at it, I laugh. It’s one of those stories I’ll be telling my grandkids one day!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do or learn but haven’t had the time?
I’ve always wanted to learn how to sew! I’m 5’2, so regularly have to get clothing hemmed to fit my petite frame. I always end up going to an alteration shop, but would love to be able to do it myself. And how cool would it be to actually pick fabrics and sew your own clothes? Hopefully one day I find the time to learn how to do it!
If you could have a super power, what will you choose to have?
Mind control! I always thought Professor X from the X-Men had the coolest power.
What do you not get about the opposite sex?
My husband is a total feminist, however, so many men aren’t. Feminism means women and men are equal, that’s it. I don’t understand misogyny and the mentality that women are inferior to men. A lot of times women are placed in a box –we have to know how to cook, clean, and behave “ladylike.” I am not a fan of gender stereotypes and am so glad that today, in 2019, they are being broken down!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Rosy. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear!
