I do like shopping for clothes. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not that crazy for shopping that my wardrobe is totally bursting from the seams but recently I have been having a bit of a wardrobe change. Since becoming a mum my priority has just been to get the kids out and look half decent myself…. and have simple and comfy clothes. But it’s time I made more of an effort, after all I am not getting any younger! So when Aziz Textiles contacted me to ask if I wanted to review one of their outfits I thought why not?
Aziz textiles is based in Birmingham and has a wide range of unstitched suits. I had already heard about them as we often do trips to Birmingham before we go to Pakistan to get gifts for everyone.
Why all the way to Birmingham I hear you ask?
Because we felt their prices were reasonable and the clothes were of good quality. In addition to this the store has such a huge variety that you are spoilt for choice.
I was pleased to hear that Aziz Textiles now have a website so you can purchase online (although not so sure the husband is pleased!!)
I was offered a choice of outfit from their Zubeda semi-stitched range. Unfortunately the one I really liked was out of stock so I asked the hubby to choose. He picked a red one. I don’t often wear red, but as he actually gave an opinion for once I went with his choice.
I did have my reservations about the colour but when it arrived the design and the colour did impress me as it wasn’t a bright red and the embroidery was pretty!
Aziz Textiles describe this particular outfit as:
This ornate Kameez in muted ruby red is heavily embroidered Georgette embellished with cream, gold and green satin stitched motifs decorating the sweetheart neckline and front of the bodice.
The Dupatta reflects the ruby theme with a chiffon that graduates into gold, so you can change your mood and your image, without changing your outfit.
The opaque georgette sleeves have dramatic embroidery in cream and gold, and the toning Salwar in rich ruby are coordinating with a decorative border of intricate florals. This Kameez is perfect for many occasions, and should be in your wardrobe to be enjoyed all season.
I adored the detail in the embroidery; I am a fan of embroidered clothes.
The outfit comes with the lining stitched. As the arms are georgette material, my tailor managed to take some material from the material for the churidaar/shalwar and cover half the arms as I don’t like see through arms. Although the outfit is shown as a churidaar outfit, I have only once worn a churidaar in my life, so the tailor made the bottoms into a trouser style which I think also suits this outfit.
Once sewn, the outfit does feel heavy. The silk type lining itself helps makes the outfit feel slightly on the heavy side as it is a good quality lining. Because it feels heavy you may struggle to wear it in the very hot days we are currently getting.
The outfit is stylish and perfect for wearing out and about to any events you may be attending.
Why not take a look at the Aziz Textiles website to see what else they have on offer? I am sure you will find something you like.
Disclosure: I was sent an outfit for the purposes of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
