Oh k! let’s go through the last 5 posts about boyfriend jeans and do a line up.

The boyfriend jeans I chose was just a small bit distressed and patch dyed (random Ombre affect I guess). None the less I have to say I’ve been in loose clothes mostly because I’ve grown fat! Every time I start to loose weight I seem to fall sick n grow fat again. But I still prefer looser fits to the skin hugging clothes ( Is there any term for skin suffocation?!! ) I’m not a big fan of skinny jeans except when I was skinny.

I’m going to do this line up in a reverse order from the one I love to my all time favourite. Honestly, I love them all but based on feedback I changed my mind to and fro about the outfits ūüėõ

5. #2 The choice

Dematrix 2scription: Black overlap asymmetric pullover with a black cami and kitten heels.

Category: Basic casual

This is something I’d wear to go on a walk down the street. I wore it for a weekend lunch at a neighbours house. I wore it to post office, grocery store and to the doctor’s appointment. The outfit is one of those everyday wearables that will still have you stand out in the crowd.  So It’s not a big deal and takes the bottom spot.

4. #5 love is not a battlefield

IMG_1282Description: Military jacket with peach tee and layered chains and boots

Category: Road trip casuals

I was watching the song CLOSE by Nick Jonas feat Tove Lo on loop when I decided to pull out my military jacket. Off late, road trips a few kilometers out of the city have become a thing with my weekends. It is a perfect travel outfit with the boots to protect your feet and the jacket to keep you warm. I’ve owned that jacket for almost 10 years. It spent most of its life sitting in the back seat of my car because Bangalore has unpredictable weather and very prone to rains. It is my car buddy jacket especially when I drove home late nights from work.

3. #3 Let’s adult up a bit

adult 3Description: Green floral block printed khadi jacket with a magenta cami and nude pumps.

Category: Semi Formal

As A fashion consultant, I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with perceptions and altering them. But the jacket is a classic And I’ve worn it a few times on social must attend with friends excuse to have a good time. Like the lunch at The Catholic club on independence day and the jacket was complimented by everyone around, young and old alike. If I were to list my favourite based on the image alone this would be my #1. The jacket is a perfect add on for work and social wears

2. #4 Feels like an evil queen

warrior princess 4Description: spear head necklace with Bardot top, oxblood clutch, and golden zipper boots.

Category: occasion specific

I have to say when I posted the outfit at the beginning of last month. It did end up getting the most number of responses and the only reason it made me very happy. For an average person, the necklace would be a massive statement the to make. Typically I would call this a perfect outfit for a night out but since I’m not a night out kind of person, I would say It’s perfect for any gathering when you want to stand out in the crowd. Every time I look at it I feel like a rebel princess or evil queen about to punch you in the face and sometimes it feels like an in between Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

1. #1 The perfect find

meghan trainor no 1Description: White jacket, yellow tee, white sneakers and a big ring

Category: Everyday work wear casual

Yes! I know this is not typical work wear to Office but it is for me. Truth is I grew up in Bangalore and the city was very known for the jeans culture (It is appropriate to wear jeans everywhere and anywhere! ) The large working class population makes denims the perfect weekend outfit.This works for me because when I’m not at my desk, I’m shuffling meetings and random shopping rounds the Jacket gives a feel good effect and the sneakers give my feet the required comfort, Because walking in the city of gardens is still a delight in Bangalore and the city’s new and improved footpaths just made my walk easier.

morning remedy 7.jpg

 

Ok wait! give me a Minute to think(mostly wonder). What was I thinking early in the morning in Cubbon park? How did I even get out of bed to be there so early. I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON! I’ve tried and failed at it. No amount of coffee in the world can save me from my brains death wish to stay asleep before 7am (I’ve always felt like a brain dead zombie walking around before 7). When Blair Eadie said she takes all those breakfast meetings and then goes to work, I got thinking maybe I’m too lazy to be a blogger! Maybe I’m too lazy to do anything if waking up in the morning decides my fate.

Anybody out there who feels the same about MORNINGS? Do suggest something that can Help me survive the sleep zombie hours in the comments below?

I’m not under any obligation to wear a kurta for the way in which I was raised by my parents. I grew up wearing some very pretty dresses. But it wasn’t until college I started to wear Kurtas, only because it was the dress code! P.s. the dupatta was always rolled and thrown into my bag. Special occasions always qualified for an excuse to wear a saree, especially¬†weddings. I was facinated because my mom has thousands of them in her wardrobe. Still I never really wanted to wear the kurtha. I always had those few in the drakest corner of my closet but I never really cared.

I’m amused though urban Indians¬†don’t find kurta appropriate attire outside of culture or traditional gatherings. Lets take a few minitues and admire those arab women in thier long tunics. If you think they are beutiful then the Indian kurtha is not much diffrent. I the age of travel to explore the world, We have spent too much time in awe of foreign cultures. We forget that no matter where we go or what we achive in the world we live in, we will always be tagged as Indian by one or another person.

Indian or not, I find long kurta’s a very good type of power dressing. It exaggerates your body length and has just the right amount of poise to retain the feminine characteristics of the outfit. A definite thumbs up to the outfit  for all you corporate office going women. Also for those who think it won’t suit you body type, I was an XS and now I fit mostly into M’s because I’ve grown fat and host a small paunch, yet this long kurta covers up all that. I choose to wear it with the salwar pant because in between the leggings, patiala and the new found palazzo somewhere we have forgotten the salwar.

Also let’s face it tunics with side slit is a trend. So whats the big deal? a good fitted kurta can have the same effect. I will show you an example In one of my later posts.

I also belive the freedom fighters also rallied against the british and chased them out of our counrty to preseve our culture and traditions. It’s one thing to ban bad cultural practices and another to exploit the good produce of our traditions. So let’s choose to be Indian when we can. If you choose to agree/disagree leave a comment below, I’m always intrested in alternate perspectives.

Think about it for a while and you will realise We all fit into some sub-category of crazy.

I am a habitual lip biter. I believe the reason is because I talk too much. I’ve like talking and painting those talkative lips red. So cliche right? But sometimes we seem to dismiss the stereotypes in the process if being different without realizing that we are all the same. we all fit into some subcategory of crazy no matter how sensible we seem to the rest of the world. In today’s world the crazier you are all the more popular you get and the more sensible you prove yourself to the world, the richer you will get.

That’s why when I first saw the dress I had to buy it. Just waited long enough for the first wave of discounts to acquire¬†it. It is one of those dresses that will stay casual but will always look dressed up. It is a sublte reflection all you drama queens. When we keep talking until we realize we have said too much and bite our lips to force stop! Honestly all this is just an excuse to buy a super comfortable dress.

Cause space was just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get close

Never considered Nick Jonas much of a singer. But close is the only song that¬†has made me ever made me look at him as an artist! The song had me play the youtube video on loop at times, also the video convinced me to pull out my military¬†jacket¬†from the closet. I know I wear a lot of blacks but I couldn’t get myself to wear the black tee with this jacket, although it would have created a classic¬†military style outfit. But the combat boots and military jacket together created too much a brutal strength¬†in the outfit and the orange bought a pleasant¬†bit of sunshine to the outfit.

Let’s face it we are teaching our young kids that love is a battlefield¬†even before they experience love for themselves. Yet,I have to say Tove lo sings the best part in the song.

[Tove Lo:]
Oh man, oh man
I am not really known forever being speechless
But now, but now somehow
My words roll off my tongue right onto your lips, oh
I’m keeping cool while you keep smiling
Saying all the things I’m thinking
Oh man, oh man

Winter is coming!

OK, this isn’t about your favourite¬†episode of Game of thrones. But for real, the winter season is about to start, and August is the mark of the beginning of the cold season. I know a lot of you are going to say what’s wrong with this girl? Winter is December, January,¬†and Feb. So for all of you who don’t live in Bangalore (FYI we get 3 months of scorching summer) it’s just freezing¬†cold especially when it rains. Winter is the best time of the year to play dress up and the best of styles to¬†come out. The best-tailored outfits, multiple layers, warm shoes and all the accessories¬†to dress up the clothes.

So just before all the warm layer of clothes start coming out of my closet would like to indulge¬†in a strong summer outfit. Don’t worry the layering is on it way.¬†But I have to say, every time I look at the necklace It makes me feel like a strong and mighty queen, maybe even a bit evil. Like Jadis, the white Witch,¬†Cersei¬†Lannister, at times even Abaddon (of course¬†she never had a crown ūüėČ but evil enough I guess)

The great and mighty August is here, Let’s start preparing for winter.

I like the way she says it, heartbreak is the national anthem!

romantic 5.jpg

We seem to have become the pain generation. Back in the 90’s artists would always sing about love, to a point where I felt like they were always going to die of a LOVE overdose. Who was to know that the generation NOW wants to make songs only about heart breaks. Maybe my generation did die of a love overdose? Or maybe the world is conspiring to give the heartbreakers their time in the spotlight? Pain seems to have become the new high.

But some things still haven’t changed, I think Taylor Swift¬†manages to sum up the wild errors of a young idealistic mind in her song new romantics. Some of my favourite¬†parts of the song are

We wait for trains that just aren’t coming.¬†why were you waiting for things to happen? what did you do to make it happen? nothing substitutes hard work¬†and sincere¬†effort.

We’re so young but we’re on the road to ruin.¬†We play dumb but we know exactly what we’re doing.¬†The early 20’s something mind that assumes that instinct is better than knowledge! If you’ve grown older, you’d know instincts grow sharper¬†with knowledge.

We need love, but all we want is danger. Can someone help me out here? How many times have you fallen in love knowing fully well you are with the wrong person?

We team up then switch sides like a record changer. again?

The rumors are terrible and cruel, But honey, most of them are true. Let’s accept it, rumors don’t create themselves.

The best people in life are free.¬†Ok! Bambi¬†you lost me here, Free from what? Let’s face it your brain still wants to be an idealist¬†even after knowing reality.

So Why am I still talking about Taylor and her crazy song? So the release of this song was just before the MET gala and the outfit worn by her on the occasion gave me an awesome idea of how to wear the dress. We have become a generation that finds happiness in dark places.

P.S don’t mind the dirt boots it’s raining in Bangalore

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter” – Mark Twain

Ok! she called me a socialite! don’t know if that was to be a compliment or otherwise? I would like to believe it was a compliment. Anything that can make me look my age is always a winner in my closet¬†because my dad still treats me like an 8year old. It really isn’t my fault I was created so small, that most of the time people find it difficult to guess my age right. But who cares right? I’ve always found more pros to being petite than cons.

But it isn’t all that hard to look all grown up. In India, power¬†dressing amongst the elite¬†is becoming¬†very typical. Keep in mind a few basic rules:

  • All handloom fabrics are Awesome!
  • Anything¬†of exaggerated lengths¬†is meant¬†for royalty
  • Pick out a monochromatic scheme of colours because they are in perfect harmony
  • Last but not the least, wear jewellery. Either small and delicate with precision¬†craftsmanship or oversized and bold statement¬†pieces.
  • Last but not least, a classic pair of shoes.

I’m I there? Do you think¬†I look grown up enough to you? I really hope I do.

Life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation

The Matrix is one of those movies you have to watch for all philosophical reasons! The trilogy inspired¬†me in many ways¬†and makes it worth the watch from time to time. It is the climax that made the trilogy worth the watch. The climax states one of the most profound facts of human behavior that most of us would not accept because we want to believe each one of us is created differently from the other.Yet truly humans are all created the same, it’s the choices we make that make us different. Being male or female, girl or woman, Cat or dog is of little significance. As human,¬†we all share the same¬†love, hate, pride, respect … what makes us different¬†are the choices we make to react to the situations and the emotions we exhibit.

ūüėõ However, I was never much of a flowy outfit kind of a person until the recent past when capes started flooding the market in different¬†forms. this is probably the residue of the trend but I love the trailing effect of the pull over when I walk, and the snug and cozy fit of the turtleneck and full sleeves. P.s. I’ve folded the sleeves. Hope you see some resemblance because I’m no neo or trinity out the save mankind. Just a pointless kid walking down the street, trying to save someone from making bad fashion choices.

My name is NO! My sign is NO! My number is NO

meghan trainor no 1

Seriously, What was Meghan Trainor thinking when she made this song? I know a lot of women have this kinda attitude because of all the million valid reasons. But are We wrong to say No to everything? Yes, I would like to believe I’ve missed out a lot of good possibilities saying no to a lot of things in life. Yet when Trainor sings it out loud she makes it sound like a song sung for her boyfriend who is always rejected by these beautiful ladies saying NO.

But NO! The one thing I have never, nor will ever regret saying NO to would be buying jeans. I’ve never understood how do some people buy so many pairs of jeans. After a point don’t they all look the same? The thing about jeans is it’s the greatest creation ever in the history of fashion, and also the biggest enemy of the real fashion.  Jeans is the only trouser that individually is the most highly promoted, most worn, most idolised outfit in the world.  Do you know that the denim used to make your jeans is the cheapest fabric ever made in the world?

I’m honestly a little annoyed with the tee shirt and jeans or white shirt with jeans routine. The classics can never go wrong but let’s leave those for a space and time when we are not in the mood to take the effort to dress up. In Spite of my dislike for jeans, I fell in love with the boyfriend fit and the distressed look. So These Forever 21 jeans were a perfect find. So before I discard my perfect find I would love share with you a few ways of styling these jeans, that made me really happy, hope it does the same for you too.
