curiosity killed the cat but she still has six lives to live
To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance – Oscar Wilde
I spent the last two days trying so hard to be nice and to find something nice to say about love. I never was a roses and chocolate kind of girl. Honestly, I still don’t understand why anyone wants to celebrate Vday! ❤ ! Do we really need an excuse to celebrate love? I never did! We live in a world where people accept heartbreak faster than love itself. We accept standards set by people We barely know and bury personal desires.
But what better way to put in in Kohli’s own Words on Instagram
“Everyday is a valentine day if you want it to be. You make everyday seem like one for me ❤❤. @anushkasharma”
If I go crazy then will you still, Call me Superman – 3 doors down
Never was a fan of DC comics characters still in full awe of Marvels SHIELD and The great avengers until I started watching supergirl. Yup Karah is amazing, but CAT Grant is still the goddess played by Calista Flockhart. The best part was finding this top is that it flaps like the supergirl cape when I walk. perfect super power when you wanna escape.

honestly! I don’t why we keep calling cloths western dressing!!!! I find It rude and inappropriate. Haven’t we seen how the slit tunics came into style a few seasons ago? But wait let’s apply a small bit of logic to why we should stop categorizing clothes as western. If the so called western tailoring of clothes originates in Europe, Why do we call western dressing? Isn’t Europe in the eastern hemisphere? so does that not make the best of clothing eastern? Sorry, I’m just habitual inquisitive. So let’s face it the best of everything is truly in the eastern hemisphere, For once I’m proud to be eastern. Tan skin, small and annoying as hell. Wait, I just heard a news report that says china has produced more billionaires than America!
P.S. I did find this Kurta in the western (can’t kill old habits just yet) section of MAX. I will try to style it differently in a few further posts just to show you western or eastern they are just clothes.
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.
Kurta: Aurelia (shop here) | Salwar: Tailored | sandals: Forever 21 | Necklace: Handicrafts exhibits cum sale | Earrings: Well there is this woman I’ve seen at almost all flea markets. If u are a bangalorean you’ve probably seen her too | Ring : Well let’s just say those are earrings, and because i was confused I accidently looped it on my fingers.
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.
