Hey luvs, we are Mahe and Raahema. We are two cousins who, despite the geographic distance that divides us, share the same love for fashion. Between living in the Garden state, NJ and the Keystone state, PA, we come across many different people with many unique styles. We are Pakistani-Americans and while we straddle two very different cultures, we find a good balance between the two. Our sense of style is influenced by our religious background as well as our culture. We will fill you in on all the things we are loving this season.xoxo.

Fashion In Another World: Churian!

Hey Luvs, it's Mahe and Raahema here with another "Fashion In Another World" post. This edition of the series will be on "churian." Churian are basically bangles that have now become popular here in the U.S and other parts of the world as well.. These bracelets range in color, detail, and dressiness. Churian usually come in large sets, with different colors and sizes. Today we are going to show some different sets of churian.


This green pair of churian are dressy, but not too dressy. This pair would be perfect to wear if you were a guest at a wedding.

                                                                                                             This set of Churian are very dressy. As you can see there is one big bangle and the middle, some smaller ones on the middle and two medium size ones to finish the set!

 This picture shows two sets of Churian worn. In our culture we usually wear large sets of bangles to cover almost all of are lower arms. The orange colored design on the woman's skin is called mehndi (henna tattoo), and is worn during fancy occasions.

 Here are just some more casual to dressy churian. As you can see the churian sets are all color coordinated!
