Editorial and street fashion

Blogging has emerged and has come a long way. We have heard this statement uncountable times by bloggers and brands and the audience too. And I being an Indian blogger who started reading blogs and blogging way before it was the ‘it’ thing, couldn’t agree more. I started blogging as a way of expressing my love for clothes and style and writing. I have never been a frequent blogger. I write only when I feel like writing and do not post unless and until I am sure of what I post is something I would love to read myself.

BREAK THE RULES ~ Cape it

1451367442815

Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist. – Pablo Picasso

I am a lover of vogue (magazine) , well any fashion lover would be a vogue hoarder and it is considered the ‘bible of fashion’. So on a lazy day while I was flipping through the glossy pages of this sacred magazine, I stumbled upon an article which stated the do’s and dont’s in fashion . I skimmed excitedly and read the line , ” do not wear a cape with a maxi dress..”. I wondered why. When Sonam Kapoor chose to wear a saree with a cape at the red carpet, she received rave reviews, then why is a cape with maxi dress not a good idea? So I decided to break the rule and went ahead to try this look myself. Well sometimes breaking the rules is the way to go. And nothing screams breaking the rules louder than a graffiti wall. The amazing graffiti wall of GUSTO CAFE,CHENNAI played the perfect backdrop for this shoot.

If you are leaving for a holiday and still perplexed as to what to wear, this floral maxi would be a perfect day wear. This shape of dress is perfect for somebody with a heavy bottom like mine. The subtle colours and the print is cute and is perfect for a holiday. A cape is not only stylish but also shall keep you warm.

I choose a bright beaded layered neckpiece to go with it. Nothing screams vacation louder than a beaded necklace.  And I wish I had a better pic of that ring. It is super cute.

I am a shoe lover. And these T-Strap wedges in tan colour are my favorite heels. The wedge part has a subtle metallic flower print and looks beautiful. Nude shoes are your best bet when there is too much happening with your clothes.

What to wear to a music festival ~ the modern BOHO

IMG_2109

 

With globalisation happening at a rapid rate, India has become one of those countries where almost everything happens. We are no longer left behind. We have the best of parties to attend. American series and movies give us an idea about their music fests like tomorrowland and something like Coachella. We as indians are always attracted to what americans do and now we don’t have something as good as tomorrowland, but we have so many music fests happening in India at various parts of the country. Now what to wear to such an event. Well ideally, wearing denim shorts, ganji or a gingham shirt with boots and sunglasses feels the safest option. But going ‘BOHO’takes the outfit to another level! Well I do not have the body to carry shorts, I chose the next comfortable option, leggings. I wanted to go dark and hence chose an all black outfit.

Fringe and boho go hand in hand and I wore chose to wear a fringed kimono. And the lace gave the feminine touch that the outfit craved. A fringe bag would also would also do the trick. The black silver and gold combo neckpiece from topshop is my absolute fav jewellery piece that I own. It is a versatile piece and goes with almost everything.

Don’t even get me started on my super crazy head turning awesome leopard print shoes. This is one of those pieces which I thought I am impulsively buying, but eventually it turned out to be the most sane thing I have ever bought fashionably. I have a crazy incident with these shoes and I couldn’t be more petrified. But that doesn’t make me love them less. A leopard print ankle-length boots screams music fest and is the fiercest thing you can own.

I borrowed(read begged) these super cool sunglasses from my sister to complete my outfit . I wore two rings and bangles. Accessories wise you could do more by wearing midi rings .But since my style is fuss-free I  took the simple route. Braiding a section of my hair seemed so apt. You could add more braids and look super stylish. Voila you’re ready for the fest! This look would also be apt for a road trip with friends.

Can I call it an outfit post?

Hey there! Well I know the post title is a little silly. Ok very silly! But the lack of a photographer seems to be never ending. No one would click good individual pictures of mine even on my birthday! I din’t just make up things when I mentioned that my birthday sucked. But I anyways got a few pictures which I managed to crop for you guys. I attended a party which I call my pre bday party on the weekend before my birthday and just went out for a lunch on my birthday( I guess thats what 23 year olds do. Meh!). Anywhoo, I wore perfect outfits for day and nights. For the night party I wore an oxidised gold top with skinnies and a neon statement necklace. For the day I wore a scarlet shirt with skinnies and accessorized appropriately for the day. Hues of gold and scralet are so FALL and work great against Indian skintones. I completely loved how I styled myself, just wish had better pictures. Never mind!

The not-so-blingy Indian outfit

Yes! Good or bad, we see a hell lot of bling in Indian weddings. If you follow me on twitter,you would have read that I had to attend 6 wedding functions in 15 days!If in India you dont wear heavy suits and blingy outfits, people consider you to be badly dressed. Have had people tell me why do I look dull (translation: why no bling?) 

Anyways, I wore this outfit to my best friend’s wedding. It was in Delhi. This suit is completely different from what people generally wear (atleast different from what marwaris generally prefer). I ditched the zatak colours and heavy sequined suits and went for a black and beige jacquard anarkali suit with colourful embroidery. (Jacquard is very much in trend right now).
