Sometimes, I’m not sure of why I choose certain pairings. Like this one! So the dress is an everyday staple but so are the cotton dupatta and nude pumps. Together it’s not so much of an amazing outfit, but truth is this the warmest winter dress I’ve ever owned. The soft warmth of the dupatta and heavy cozy blanket-like feel of the dress felt amazing.

Hope you have a great Sundayold-black-dress7old-black-dress6old-black-dress4old-black-dress2old-black-dress3.old-black-dress1old-black-dress5

I wasn’t really Indian. Being a Christian in India was like being the unwanted child left behind by our forefathers who were unwanted settlers. Of course, a lot of things of the past have lost their importance over the years. Also being named Nita made it difficult for the average Indian to even believe I was Christian. I used to hate wearing Indian wear, primarily because during every national event and holiday I never had a proper outfit to wear to school. Until of course I discovered the saree, something I adapted pretty quickly too. But kurta’s was a “never want to wear” feeling.

However, those feelings fade growing up. It doesn’t really matter because I was never expected to wear Indian ethnic to any of the major events. What really happened was, I discovered a new love for Indian wear when I worked for Fabindia for two years. The best challenge at the job was the ability to mix and match the available products to create a full outfit. Kurtha, pajama, and dupatta too with the value adding accessories. I find summer the best time to pick out my kurtas to wear, also the best season to wear the vibrant Indian` colours.

I was hoping to create an all Fabindia products in the ensemble, but I guess I haven’t worked there long enough to acquire those many products. My Verdict: Kurta’s are a favourite outfit for the summers. Also, the beauty of a kurta can be magnified or destroyed by the way the dupatta is draped. Show her some love and be fully aware that she will make or break the outfit you choose to wear.

New year resolutions

After the first three days of the year I realised all over again why I have never been a fan of new year’s. I believe it is one of the worse excuses to celebrate.December is one of the best time of the year for me, It starts with my Birthday and ends with Christmas. As a kid it was the best time of the year to do shopping.
Soon after Christmas starts the paramount of lies we like to tell ourselves. “the best is yet to come”, “I will keep my resolutions this year”, And those lazy louts who prefer to mock themselves for not keeping or even making resolutions. It’s amusing to watch young boys coming to the park to jog in the evening, By the end of the month would like to know how many of them are still on track to achieve their goals.
So make a deal with yourself, don’t ever make false promises to yourself, Don’t make resolutions that you were never suppose to make because you know you won’t keep them and it’s not in your nature e.g. to exercise and lose weight. Instead discover yourself and set realistic goal (like I will drink a green tea with every dessert I eat) that won’t make you guilty of the things you never resolved to get done. Spend more time with people so that you discover who truly cares for you, and build a meaningful relationship with them. Find a new hobby to keep your idle mind occupied. And be more productive and have a satisfying year ahead ( Vaibhav I had to quote your choice of words).
So remember don’t make resolutions, make realistic goals you can achieve. Lets fell a bit less guilty this year.
Have A happy year ahead in 2016.
