This new year I vow to push my ass and….

1. Start being judicious about them finances (the problems they create towards the month end…deadly! O.o)

image

2.  Start taking care of my skin. ( World War III : Shilpa vs Acne!)

image

3. Start shopping on a “oh that’s a versatile piece and I know I want it- go to store – find the blessed piece – scamper back home” basis rather than the “oh my salary is credited lemme aimlessly stroll into the mall – oh I like this oh I like that oh I like the ENTIRE SHOPPP – impulse binge buy every thing I lay eyes on” basis.

image

3. Read more. Actually let’s make it measurable! Read 12 good books – one a month! (Ya ya blab about it in your stupid blog if that’s what motivation means to you..!) If I might entertain you with a picture which “summarizes” my reading habit.

4. Take up that fondant class I’ve been dreaming of for looong sometime. Get over the obsession ASAP by 1.knowing I suck at it or 2. Knowing I can give peek-a-boo cakes a run for its money *insert maniacal laugh* (or a pitiful gosh-this-chic-needs-help kinda laugh if you please!)

image

Hahaha ohhhh I crack myself up! 😂

Honestly the resolution list could go on guys but let’s keep it simple shall we 🙂  I’ve had a lovely 2014 with many ups and very few downs and I hope that’s how things panned out at your end too. Have a happy new year. Stay happy , stay safe , party hardest. Love y’all for loving me so much. Goodnight! 😍😍

The Day my Illustration Came Alive!

image

I gave you guys an update around two months ago about an illustration I tried when I bought a black and white stripes T-shirt. Guess what? I achieved that exact look.! Are you proud of me or what 😝

I bought this skirt from Oasap recently but had written it off as ill fitting … But I decided to fit into it and make it work all the same and I decided it did work out pretty fine after all (whether everyone around me thought the look worked is another issue all together 😜 )
“You look like a munchkin”
“You look uncoordinated”
“You look clownish” were some of the comments I got. But hey, I’m the fashion blogger, not you guys! And a fashion blogger is as a fashion blogger does. So I decided to sweep all that negativity under the carpet and walk tall in my envisioned look all the same! 😁
I wore my jeweled black heels and a black and white pair of earring to complete the look.

What do you guys think? Red-black-white combination for life eh!?! 👍😎👊

He’s here :D

Guyssssss!! Aaaaahhhh!! 💟💟💟 picture this : you have a 60 day countdown because you are seeing the love of your life after two frikkin long years, the days are in no hurry (wonder how they act so lazy during countdowns and are so hyperactive when the vacation after the countdown starts :?) and after a tiresome 58 days you are down to 2 days. The last ten days go exceptionally slowly with you checking the date and the time on your computer calendar every five minutes (no I’m not exaggerating guys!). Anyway, I was in the last but one but oneth day of my countdown 😝. It was Friday and after a longgggg day at work I’m walking towards my car in the rather empty parking lot when I suddenly sense a movement behind me and the persons gait is all too familiar but I’m not able to put a finger on who it was..so I do the turn look back, not realizing who it was, so look in front and get sooooo shocked and look back again routine we are all too familiar with! My boyfriend had me surprised shocked blown out of my wits all at the same time by arriving two days before schedule. Yaah yaah HiFi!!! He’s here 😍!!!!

BEST.SURPRISE.EVER. 😍 Happy holidays people. I know I’m going to have an amazing one 💝

Denims, peaches and pearls

I had a peach statement necklace sleeping for an uncomfortably long time in my wardrobe. I had to..simply had to dig it out and wear it with the first outfit that I could reach out for and voila!!

image

You guys didn’t guess that the first shirt I might reach out to would be my denim one? Too bad. 😉

image

Because the necklace has pearls on it and also because I had no earring in peach I decided to pair this look with big pearl earrings! Tada a random comfortable confused look was achieved!!

Have a fun weekend folks!! 🙂

I got my Neon this Too! -Festive Editon

I attended two weddings in a span of four days and only once I got done with them both did I notice a trend. A trend I’ve infact been yapping about in my blog. A trend I’ve been tracking as part of my four post series. Yah! Neon! Both my outfits had neon of varying proportions in them. Ok the yapping stops here! Photos now!

Look #1: White Anarkali with Neon Embroidery

image

image

So an anarkali is basically a long gown, fitted till the waisted and flowing from there till a few inches above the ground. While my anarkali suit is pure white it has beautiful neon pink and green embroidery in the torso. Anarkalis are suitable for weddings of colleagues and not so close friends 😜 and for not so grand occasions!
Moving on…because I’m so excited to present this second look;)
Look #2: bright striking glaring Beautiful NEON Saree!

image

A Saree is a very traditional attire which almost every Indian woman loves to buy/stock/hoard

image

I wore this Saree for a friend’s reception. I believe a Saree should justify the occasion for which it is worn. 😜 Sarees should be worn for events involving family and close friends.

image

This saree was a kinda impulse buy. I paid a bomb for it when I saw it online and I should say I wasn’t very happy with the way it looked when I received the Saree. The moment I stitched my blouse to resemble a boat neck top and it came out so well, I was a happy girl!

image

I was still apprehensive about being the living traffic light, what with such bright colors spewed all over me, but I decided what the heck, if a fashion blogger won’t sport this, who will? And I went for it!

That brings me to the end of Part two of my neon series. Also I’ve given Indian bloggers the idea of incorporating neon into their festive collection wardrobe! Hope you try it out 🙂

P.S. on a totally different note, it was my close friends birthday and I did this for her

image

I stole a piece of wood from some carpenters I knew and a handful of nails too and I sat and banged them into the wood 😜 and used red wool to form the heart and painted the words with acrylic. Needless to say, as is the case with anything handmade, she absolutely loved it! 🙂

Super-Suit for the Pseudo-Superhero

Have I told you guys about this before? I teach English through an NGO to kids from deprived backgrounds.

Now this NGO I work for is really cool. The people are crazy, fun and amazing. I’ve always felt like I’ve been around extremely judgmental people in life, but here you could be who you want and they will wholly embrace that. Which I love.. Does all this even make sense? Yes moving on! 😜

So for the first time after I joined, we had a small get together where close to 100 of us met up last weekend.

The theme for this party was Superheros We apparently were the real superheros doing better superhero-y things than the reel superheros… Get the drift? 😁

I decided to be Captain America and decided to spice things up by adding one additional piece of clothing! You’ll see.

Yes! A little flashback now 💫💫 my school sports day was one big flashy event. Selected students (the student council they call it) were asked to march in blazers-shirt-tie outfit. That blazer is usually bought from the cheapest shop possible because we used to wear them exactly once. So much so, my blazer is not even to be found. Burnt it perhaps! Lol 😂 (what! It was an eye sore Ok?) This blazer on the other hand is my sister’s. Since she finished school only two years back, this blazer was safely put away in the loft and I in a very fashion bloggerly style hunted it down because I decided a superhero outfit needed a blazer! How about that!?!

image

I wore this superhero-suit with plain blue jeans.

image

Bad photos as usual because..well..I didn’t have my photographer-work-friend to click them!

image

Could I entertain you with a wink and distract you from the otherwise shoddy photography and the background? 😎
Haha!! Have an amazing rest of the week y’all! 💝💝

P.S. 5 hours after publishing this post, I thought up of a better title so I went ahead and changed it from Super-suiting to Super-Suit for the Pseudo-Superhero 😜
