Superman is essentially a god, but Batman is more like Hercules: he’s a human being, very flawed, and bridges the divide – Christopher Nolan

If It wasn’t for Christopher Nolan I probably would have never cared to watch batman in action. Never was much of a DC comics fan, But It was the CN versions that made him a true dark favourite amongst heroes. The fascinating Version of Joker and the twisted Tate. At first, when I saw the batwings in style I was fascinated but the sleeves had structural flaws, which made pairing difficult. But as foolish as I always am I picked up the top after a lengthy debate of “let’s figure it out later”,

Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs – Susan Sontag

As kids, we run on certain assumptions. Assumptions that have never been corrected by fact because you had no reason to believe you could be wrong. Like this fav hand knitted sweater that’s been at home for as long as  I can remember. For many years I assumed that the sweater was my grandmother’s. When my mom wanted to give it away I picked it up and throw it to the bottom of my closet. occasionally it would surface when it get’s ridiculously cold. Like in the past few days the oceanic depression cause winter rains.

What better day than to wear it on the evening you wanna escape for a drive?

Sometimes you just have to escape.

Most of the times I love to be in the city but sometimes it’s just nice to get away from it. No! really this isn’t much of a getaway and we are still withing Bangalore city limits! In spite of the EXTRA large population, the city itself is still very small. This is a little of Sarjapur road, the city is still filled with farmlands. Sometimes you don’t have to go too far to find quite spaces. Just a car and a pointless direction. I’m never much for the boho trend but the softness of the suede just made it the perfect relaxed outfit I’ve worn in a while. Plus the oxidised silver necklace makes it an easy pairing with a lot of clothes.

Have a great week ahead!

Have a great Sunday!

So after my small line up (Click here ), I will continue the styling of my BF jeans for a bit longer Until I can convince myself to get rid of those jeans. Mostly after 5 years of working in uniforms, formals and bare essentials it feels good to style the casuals into something more stylish for everyday errands and work.

The outfit I’m wearing in today’s post is a plain tee mostly. I wear that tee mostly for the colour, full sleeves and the feeling of being snuggled inside blankets. Yes! I don’t need blankets to feel cosy in everyday dressing. I have this tee in 4 different colours. This one’s always my favourite. The pairing of necklaces was an absolute delight. I heard it somewhere pain is a path to just more pleasure! And so the Skull and heart together. Simple ways to create your own layered necklace.

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 😛

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?

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 😉 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
