If you unlock Sobia A Shaikh’s closet, you will find she has both trendy clothes that are in fashion currently as well as old timeless pieces she considers classic and will never go out of style for her. Indeed, fashion and lifestyle blogger Sobia Shaikh is one of San Francisco’s most fashionable women. She has a long history with this career path and started out as a simple model.
When asked about the source of her fashion sense, she says,” I do believe that my mom was my first ever style icon. Although she’s quite religious now and dresses simply, she has always had an innate sense of style. When my parents threw beautiful parties at our home in Karachi, my sisters and I often stared at her as she got ready. Long, beautiful hair twisted into a chic bun. Simple makeup; just a touch of eyeliner and lipstick. The most elegant handbags from my father’s travels. Joy by Jean Patou always spritzed on her neck – that fragrance lives inside my memory! I think she continues to be my biggest inspiration in more ways than one.”
Some years back, Sobia took the next step in her career and opened her own business of designer handbags by the name of ISLY. However, running a small business is hard, especially when you are doing everything alone. She despised the protracted periods away from family and she couldn’t keep well physically because of constantly being on the roll for long time intervals without a proper sleep schedule. After fulfilling all her orders for the 2017 season, she eventually packed up my business four months later and decided to call it quits because of the pressure.
After a proper 6-month break from such a strenuous life, Sobia found herself getting more and more invested in her Instagram account and it slowly took shape into a fan-following of sorts. People wanted to connect further and Sobia responded to this demand in the form of opening her own blog.
Going by the name of “Shaikhen and Stirred”, Sobia talks about any and everything that comes to mind on that blog. It is also a great place for brands who want Sobia to advertise them, to get in touch with her.
