Lora Kawar and Amal Badran, both of Metro Detroit, connected through their jobs. They both work as physician assistants and share an interest in the world of fashion. This discovery led to the birth of the blog LAM Style, which allows them to share their interests, beauty tips, travels and fashion diary. Through this platform, they want to show that the world of medicine and fashion are not mutually exclusive.
How did the two of you meet and decide to start a blog?
L&A: We met while in the physician assistant program at University of Detroit-Mercy. We ended up getting jobs at the same hospital. One day, during casual conversation about current fashion trends and whatnot, we thought it would be fun to start a fashion blog together … and so the journey began.
One word to describe your style?
Is there something in your style that is always consistent?
Lora: Difficult to say, as my style is always changing and I don’t find myself fitting in any one category. I do love a casual minimalistic look, but also love a great crazy colorful statement piece, just depends. I pride myself on being a fashion chameleon.
Amal: I love statement pieces. Whether it’s a ruffle top or shiny flared pants, I love to make a statement with my wardrobe.
Best style advice you’ve ever received?
Lora: Just wear what you want and feel comfortable in. You also don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to look and feel trendy.
Amal: Less is more. Stay on trend while staying true to your own style, and feel good in what you wear. I think it’s also important to take risks with fashion. Explore new trends and step out of your comfort level every now and then.
