How to: Velvet!

A lot of things that I hated earlier have made their comebacks this season. Bell bottoms and velvet top my list. Bell bottoms made me look much skinnier and velvet, well I never liked it. I thought it was the worst of fabrics and was so OTT. Funny how you change with time right?

Now bell bottoms seem to be taking over my wardrobe one piece at a time and velvet too is finding its way. Well velvet definitely is one of the most beautiful fabrics we have, and I took my sweet time to realise that.

Fusion wear with Dimple.Amrin!

Fusion wear comes naturally to me.

Why you ask?

Well, growing up me and my brother could only buy two pairs of clothing a year and we always picked casual fun looking clothes and wore the same to every outing and party. I did feel out of place when I’d go to a wedding and all the other girls I knew  wore the most extravagant lehengas and shararas and I stood there like a fool in acid washed pants.

How to: Quirky Bags!

Good bags are a luxury!

It took me about 20 years to realise how important bags could be. I always though clothes and shoes matter, but accessories and bags? Not so much. What an idiot! Good bags and accessories can take any look from rags to riches and I understand now.

In the last year I have invested more in bags than anything else. From just two bags that I would carry around everyday, I now have types of bags. Yes ‘types’! From totes, to clutches, to bagpacks and all other names I am not even aware of.

Quirky bags have been the talk of the town for quite sometime now. Don’t we all just love them? Bags shaped as so many things, from a ball to an icecream cone, from lips to a huge eye! Everything’s possible. Sometimes they also come in rad prints that will suddenly make you famous in the next party you attend.

STEAL FROM YOUR MAN!

“I have nothing to wear!”

Story of our lives.

With a wardrobe stuffed with clothes, I still find it hard sometimes to find what to wear and I know most of you go through the same thing. It has always been the same. As kids, me and my brother only received two pairs of clothes a year and we were never happy. But now, even when my wardrobe door is almost jammed, I still throw a fit at times on how I have nothing appropriate. Haha. I think that’s how it will always be. Not to forget that we still manage to dress fabulous even after all of this drama.

But, as crazy as we can get, we are never tired of new clothes. So today I am going to talk about how to get some more. Steal from your man. Now that man can be your father, brother, friend, boyfriend, husband or even the men’s section of a store!

I have always been a fan of androgynous clothing. I love how comfortable and fun it can be! Since times immemorial, I have shopped from stores meant for men. The t-shirts are my favourite. We never get such rad prints on t-shirts meant for the ladies, ugh. I mean, can’t a girl enjoy some witty graphics or pictures on her chest? Sure, we can!

How to:Make work wear easy!

I didn’t go to office today. Why? I had to write a blog on easy-going work wear. See the irony? Haha. Okay, as the title already suggests we are going to talk about work wear today. I don’t do it much and the reason is that I myself do not have a lot formal clothing in my wardrobe. But I realized that it is time I do.

Most of us think that a simple jeans and shirt do fine for office. They do, but personally I feel that we should put a little more thought in what we wear to office. They say if we wear the right clothes to the right places, people take us seriously. And who wouldn’t want to be taken seriously at the work place. Power dressing speaks for itself. Clothing makes a huge difference and we all know that.

Now, you know I am a fan of versatile clothing and love it if I can wear my pieces to different places. I decided to pick up two pieces from Miss Chase clothing that are not only perfect for work but also the after work fun, if you may. Or else you can go home and eat popcorn in the same like I do. Also, if you haven’t heard about Miss Chase, what are you doing? I love the little yet strong collection they have for the ladies of all ages.  I will provide a link below so you can check too. For now, we’ll let their clothes speak.

How to: Style a Saree, part 04.

Yeah I know this one took a lot of time. Why? I have been sick for the past three days straight. Maybe you care, maybe you don’t but we are here for something else! This fourth look is very close to my heart. To most of you, it will come out as funny, stupid and ‘oh-she-is-trying-too-hard’ kind. For me it is so ME. If you have followed my blog you know about my love for casual sporty looks.

So my fourth and last reason for having done this series is that sarees too can be an everyday casual thing. I know they’re hard and such a fuss but can be tried and honestly after having worn a saree this whole day for the shoot I was so comfortable in it by the end that it seemed like another piece of everyday clothing. My mother wears saree 365 days a year! No, I’m not kidding.

So before we dig in please do take a look at the three other ways I styled this saree in, here Part 01, Part 02 and  Part 03.
