The ‘Mahvash’ Edit: Why shop the #MicroFelicity?


Why the #Mahvash #MicroFelicity ?

If you would describe yourself as fashion savvy, edgy and are looking for the perfect compact bag to carry your phone and small make-up items, then the Micro’s are ideal for you! Here are 7 reasons why it should be your ideal pick this summer:

  1. Micro bags are super trending right now!
  2. Cute and easy to carry, #MicroFelicity comes in plush colours decorated with stand out foil metallic florals, which instantly add a slightly formal and zingy look to your outfits.
  3. The choice of colours is ‘interesting’ yet muted which makes it easy to pair them with a number of outfits (both day time and evening), as they form subtle contrasts to almost anything!
  4. They add a very fresh, light-hearted and young vibe to your look!
  5. Buying one genuine leather Micro Felicity is a worthwhile investment; they look solid and last longer than your average faux clutch.
  6. They aren’t just a worthwhile investment, the Micro’s are affordably priced given that they are made of pure leather and are truly designer!
  7. Lastly these are easy to pack and carry anywhere on holiday; and work very well with both eastern and western ensembles.

Styling suggestions? :  Denim is a favourite- some ripped jeans ,a classic white shirt and statement earrings would look absolutely stylish with any one of the Felicities. Or, LAWN! A local favorite- lawn typically comes in gorgeous floral prints, so why not match it with a yummy Micro Felicity? Printed pants with lace up heels would also look uber chic (see below) So girls, WHY NOT #carrylocal and shop a #Mahvash bag instead of a Gucci one this summer?

Bag Feed: How to spot a fake designer bag!

With the ever growing love for luxury goods the fake designer market or otherwise known as the black market, is in full boom. And we cant deny how readily available these copies are in just about every nook and corner of Pakistan! It might be easy to buy a rip-off but is it easy to spot one? Let me break it down for you in a few simple steps:

1) Most copies are made of faux leather or a sticky canvas and the hardware is typically light-weight.

2) Lining is key- there shouldn’t even be a slight difference in hue! For instance, if you’re familiar with the red lining of the Louis Vuitton ‘never full’ bag then it’ll be easy for you to spot a fake just by looking at the inside of the bag!

3) The stitching should be neatly in line with no loose threads. If its patterned then the patterns on either side of the seam should match/reflect each other. A fake’s patterns are usually misaligned at the seams.

4) Spelling errors are by the far the most obvious give away! If you know your designer label spellings then this one’s a no brainer! ‘Min Min’ for ‘Miu Miu’?

5) The trimmings of a counterfeit tend to be raw, most designer brands choose to fold the raw edges or wax slick them unless of-course the design aesthetic suggests otherwise.

6) Pockets and base feet are another feature to note! Fake’s tend to add zippers in the wrong places especially on pockets; and you will find base feet on practically every top handle bag!
