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.

Leave your past behind

Hey you lovely people. The title gives an image of a post that would contain ramblings. But it’s an outfit post with a few ramblings ofcourse. This is my first post featuring pictures from my Malaysian vacation in September. My friend gave me a very good advice while I was leaving for the trip. She said leave your past in Malaysia when you return. This is the best advice anyone has ever given me. That’s what vacations are about right? To leave behind the past and come back with new and exciting memories and experiences.

So my last stop before we left Malaysia was a visit to this beautiful place built to look like it’s France. It’s built in the outskirts of the country at the hills. It’s near Genting Highlands. My love for France is eternal, and while me actually going to France is a distant dream, this was more than enough for me. The place was beautiful with pavements and cafes and parisian windows. Oh I had the yummiest chocolate tart ever. There’s a pic below. It’s a really beautiful place and a must visit. Do not, do not come back without going to this place if ever you go to Malaysia. I wore my AND by Anita Dongre tunic as a Cape. I dint even know I was going to this place and my outfit was just apt for it. So yay! Have a look.

Ink blue

Here I am down with cold and super irritated because of it. I was browsing few sites and blogs and that was irritating as well. Hence I thought why not divert myself and actually do something productive like blogging! And I must say im loving it, until I have to add something or add an attachment and don’t get the hang of it cos well I’m technically handicapped!
Anywhoo, three months back I was in Banglore at the phoenix mall with no intention to shop( ya let’s see how that worked!) But entered the AND store. And the moment I entered the store I loved almost everything. But what I loved the most was this ink blue tunic. It looks like a shirt from the front but like a maxi from behind. This is not something very new but I knew I had to buy it! In theory it’s not the best thing to wear considering my body type. But sometimes you have to ditch the rules and just wear whatever the hell you want.
A few pointers for the curvy girl(and by curvy I mean pear shaped):
1. Choose black bottoms! Be it jeans, leggings or jeggings. This would hide your problem area as well as doesn’t take away attention from the beautiful tunic.
2. As its flowy, your bottom half should be tight to give proper symmetry.
3. This tunic itself is a statement piece, hence keep rest of the look minimal.
4. Wear heels! Period.
5. Smile and be confident. You are looking sexy and fashionable.
I hope these pointers help you.
I wore the tunic with black leggings from mango and black sandals and stone earrings of the same colour. I let the tunic speak.
My make up included light black and silver smokey eyes, winged eyeliner and red lips.

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!

NIGHT LOOK:

Top: Mango
Neck piece: Forever 21
Heels: Miss Sixty

DAY LOOK





Shirt: Spring break
Neck piece: Aldo
Bracelet: Accesorize
Shoes: Shop in Delhi
Bag: Miss Sixty

I know the editing is funny. Well, I can explain, but I dont want to bore you with that.

P.S. I am excited to wear ear cuffs and walk on Hyderabad streets(you have no idea how it is here!)


RAIN-OOTD

I am sorry for not blogging. I am moving back to my hometown and the amount of stuff I have, its difficult to get over packing.Plus last meetings with friends is also taking up all my time.I shall try my best to be regular.Apoligies.
I wore this outfit on an evening when Delhi was blessed with the first rain of this monsoon. Well, the rain spoilt all the things I had planned. But sometimes something better happens when all things go wrong. I normally get very angry when things get ruined. Trust me, I cannot explain what all happened that day. But I surprisingly was very calm. People who know me well would know that I cannot be calm in such situations. But I was so relaxed! I am sure it was the rain. The feel of the rain water on my skin takes me to another world. I was wearing heels! I just removed my heels, carried them in my hands and walked bare foot on the streets. So Bollywood! I enjoyed and loved every part of it.By the way, today is a very special day for me. This day holds a very special part in my heart. The post is dedicated to my best friend.Now and forever-MB.

Coming to the outfit, I had to go for a dinner, so I chose to go with the red lips and a box clutch. I wore an asymmetrical skirt with a tank and a light cardigan(which kept me warm), and heels completed my look.

Tank-do not remember
Cardigan- Vero Moda(Always my favourite)
Skirt-Mango(current favourite)
Box clutch- Sondra Roberts via Posh Fushion
