Print Preview-🌷🌸🌺Welcoming spring!🌻🌼🌹

A change in weather calls for a change in theme and a change in theme based on the weather calls for us to talk about the FLORAL PRINT! Associated with spring spirits from time immemorial the floral print is close to every woman’s heart and that’s why I chose this to be the first print we discuss in the new theme!

Having always been a representation of the free spirited woman there is something incredibly attractive, yet easy, grand and yet not at all made up about this print!

While western designers have used and over used this print for many years now, it is quite new in the Indian runway scene! A reason why this Anushree Reddy Lehenga was literally a runway-hit πŸ˜‰

Using florals in blouses (crop tops used by Indian women while wearing a Saree!) have been around for a little longer!

Designers around the world have realized that women lap up anything floral. Why else would flowers be used in any and every surface used by women? 😊

(Floral headphones seriously? πŸ˜‚)

So how did I incorporate this trend? Honestly, it wasn’t the toughest task guys.

No. I don’t know why I was holding onto my braid. πŸ˜‘ in every single photo. Gosh. So moving on, I got this floral crop top at a Westside Sale. As I’ve said before, when it comes to crop top lengths, the struggle is real! 😰
So what was meant to be a crop top for a long- torso-ed person (see how I steer away from adjectives like tall, fit, et all?!) was in fact an almost full length top for me. Owing to this confused hemline, once again my high waisted red umbrella skirt came to the rescue! Honestly haven’t I overused this piece? The rest of the look was in subtle gold because I liked how the gold looked with my red skirt.

Outfit details : Crop top and heels- Westside, Skirt – Oasap.com, Shades and clutch – Polkadotandyou (Instagram Sellers), Earrings – Thrifted in the beautiful lanes of Mumbai!

There have in fact been other instances when I have worn florals right here on this blog! Like this one below πŸ‘‡

Floral tights – Imasocool or what?πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚

I am so looking forward to putting up some amazing posts in the Prints theme in weeks to come. And in my constant bid to make this blog more about every woman and not just me, I have already asked my friends to submit pictures of any quirky fun prints they own. I would be more than thrilled if you all would also send in pictures with any print you particularly love to frillthrillsindia@gmail.com ! Enjoy your long weekend Indian readers. I know I am going to! πŸ’πŸ˜˜

5 Not at all Annoying Questions people ask Fashion Bloggers!

What is it like when you reveal to the world you are an amateur fashion blogger? Its funny how people ask you the same set of not at all irritating questions and make not at all punch-worthy comments 😝 yes that was pun heavily intended there. :mrgreen:;) If you’ve been there done that to a fashion blogger, henceforth just, don’t. Please. 😂

1. Do you spend your entire salary on clothes?

image

Yes most definitely and then I steal money for food, rent, and gas. 😇 Truth be told, I try to eat my clothes, try to live in my clothes and try to shove my clothes down the gas pipe of my car and that’s how I survive. 👍😑

2. “She’s pretty self(ie) obsessed”

image

Follows you on Instagram Facebook and WordPress and calls you self obsessed for every post. 😐 maybe you’re obsessed about me and my obsession. How about that huh? 😝

3. You’re a fashion blogger. How can you come dressed like THAT?!? – employ a “I’m trying to be smart and funny” tone to that one.

image

You are a human being. How could you come into this world processed to ask these dumb questions like THAT!?! – employ “truly amazed by the beauty of life” tone to that one. 😝

4. Ho.! So that’s going on your blog next.

image


Gosh you smartie… 😨😱Had Einstein heard you he would have adopted you. Wonder how that smart brain of yours looks so small. As small as a pea maybe? 😤😜

5. When do you intend monetizing your blog

image

Ummm…I don’t know, when do you intend monetizing the sleep inducing subjects you decide to talk about. When? When? Whe….zzzz! 😴

Website Review (and collaboration) : Vesa Online

I have had a week full of travel so while I have one last exciting post lined up to bring the WorkWear theme to an end, I was unable to plan for it and so I wanted to do a quick review as part of my website review series. (there’s exactly one other post in this “series”..so err yeah moving on!😜)
Vesa online is a small website in terms of number of products they deal with but every outfit is so well thought of and well made. I recently bought a dress and a blazer from them and I’m totally thrilled. πŸ™‚
Vesa products come in three easy sizes S, M and L. Its best to stick to the sizes you usually go for when buying a normal T-shirt because their outfits fit comfortably.
Vesa is has its Online store, and an instagram account. Check out their entireΒ  collection there. I bought two outfits from Vesa and here’s what I thought about them πŸ™‚
Red Marble Dye Dress :

image

This marble dye dress is a fit and flair kind of dress. What is stunning and so lovable about it is the neckline!

image

The cut work of the neck was what I fell for when I decided to buy this dress.

image

The fit is classic and perfect. While I was over cautious and like my clothes to not be very tight and hence went for an L.

image

Marble dying has something so Indian and elegant about it. I love it when western trends are incorporated in Indian textiles 😍

image

Vesa deals with a lot of Indian fabrics like silk pashmina tie and dye cotton, etc so they have perfect clothes for any tropical country.

Outfit details : Dress : Vesa Online (c/o), Heels : Westside

Pashmina Silk Blazer

image

Wow! Coming to my favorite piece which drove me to buy anything from this site. This blazer. Tada!!

image

This blazer. Is so. Fabulous. And so. Chic. I can. Honestly. Wear it. All day. 😂

image

The blue green and gold did give me a tough time when it came to deciding what to pair the blazer with, but honestly, do you even want to see what I’m wearing apart from the blazer itself?
image

I thought the sand colored kurta which I wore like a blouse and the black fitted jeans did justice to being the subtle subordinates of this magnificent blazer 😜

image

Outfit details : Blazer : Vesa Online, Kurta (turned blouse) : FabIndia, Jeans : Waves (Chennai), Platforms : Westside, Shades : Polkadot and You (Instagram)

Vesa online has definitely found a repeat customer in me especially due to their prompt replies to mail queries, request response time, and general importance associated to customer satisfaction. 👍

That brings me to the end of this post. Have a fabulous rest of the weekend you guys! Oh and happy siblings day 💝😘

While I paid for the blazer, the dress was sent by the brand for styling and review. All opinions however are purely mine. I genuinely loved the brand and the outfits.

P.S. Oh how could I forget! Thank you so much Rasika for being my lovely photographer πŸ™‚ its so heartwarming to note that one when door closes approximately seven doors open 💝

Decoding – WorkWear – What’s your Go To Quirk?

Haven’t we all had weeks where its just Wednesday and we be like “What? Shouldn’t it have been Friday already?” You say every week of yours is like that? Hehe shhh! 🙊But when we have such slow weeks what do we do? How do we survive through the rest of the week? While I don’t know about guys, girls I do know have a go-to style of dressing to help them get over the week. This week’s post is all about this Go-To Quirk which we all have and so many pretty friends of mine willingly agreed to share their Quirk for the Tough Week.

Quirk One : Preeti makes pretty statements

image

I for one know for a fact that when Preeti my friend and colleague brings out her amazing range of statement necklaces it means she’s heating her week up because not much has been happening. It’s true isn’t it?

Inference : Amp up your simple boring dress! Accessorize like there is no tomorrow!

Quirk 2 : Ranjini Does Layers

image

When I asked Ranjini what her go to quirk was she readily shared this picture of her in several layers. While this was in a colder country, I’m guessing her quirk (like one of my many quirks) is layering, either in thermals like the pic above or in cool cottons when she heads back to the ever tropical ever hot Chennai πŸ™‚ thank you Ranjini 😘 try as I might, I just wasn’t able to crop out the stray napkin sorry. Hahaha

Inference : Love your layers. Always remember, two’s better than one!

Quirk 3 : Pastel style by Srishty

image

I must confess, when Srishty of Life Of srish shared this picture of her in pastel formals she might not have been aware that I’ll use it for this particular post. Thank you so much Srishty and I can confidently say Going Pastel is her quirk because we had a discussion a few posts ago about how no one embraces their pastels and srishty quite strongly agreed and openly declared her love for pastels too!

Inference : Pastels may not add much color but they add so much confidence and focus. Embrace them pastels because work wear is incomplete without them!

Quirk 4 : Shilpa does eye blinding color

image

While I plan on doing a detailed post about Pakistani Cut Kurtis like the one I’m wearing above, this picture is only proof that my dull days get literally brightened up with eye popping, gaze blinding colors.

Inference : Quite a contrast and a contradiction to the previous Quirk but my quirk is to add lot of color to my outfit to bring back interest and add some life into my outfit!

That brings me to the end of this post. Thank you so much all you lovely girls who so readily contributed for my post! I owe you guys one. 😘

Thank you all for reading these posts patiently but right now close this work wear post because its weekend and honestly who cares about what you wear – work or otherwise? Go out and have some fun 💝
