70s vs 90s!

Time as a concept has always intrigued me. It is the most complex and yet the simplest. Have you ever felt that you do not belong to this time period? That you wish you were born in some other time? Now of course, there were a lot of hardships back then but therecan be a lot of reasons for this longing too. It can be fashion, art, politics, romance, anything.

I have no particular style statement really. If I am the edgy punk girl today I can be bohemian one the next and a boss lady the other. However, I constantly find myself torn between two eras the most. The 70s and the 90s. They are the most appealing to me and I couldn’t be happier for the fact that they are both also one of the most trending ones right now.

How to: RETRO!!

Have you ever wondered if you belong to this era? Or are you old school? Or just too ahead of this time?

Well, I am always confused for my belonging. Definitely not too much into the future but never sure if I like the flared pants and big sunglasses of the 70’s more, the Victorian era with ruffles and layers or the rad 90’s with chokers and mini skirts! I am always divided. More often than not, I wake up with the mood. The mood on how and what era-wise I want to dress myself up that particular day. The struggle is real my friend.

If you have been following the blog, you know what I am talking about. I cannot fit in a mould. I would hate to do that. Well, you know what mood I am in today? Something people refer to as “RETRO”! With pop colours, loud lipsticks, hair-styles like pin-up girls and everything over the top.

Stalk, buy and love!!

Hey everyone,

How are things rolling your side. My side has been full of new things. I have a huge surprise coming for you guys  but you’ll all have to wait a little. Apart from that, heat has been soaring here in Delhi and I’ve finally managed to get an AC. Laugh as you may but this is the first time I have an AC in my room. For the first fifteen minutes I didn’t even know what different things the remote could do. Well back in my home town, Nainital, we don’t even have fans let alone ACs. It’s funny how things may be very regular and normal for one person and completely new to another one.

Anyway, enough of my stupid theories, let me talk about what we are discussing here today! But before anything, let me ask you, DO YOU STALK? No, don’t you lie. I know you do. Everyone does. In fact, I’ll be honest, I sometimes find myself looking at the pictures of my friend’s brother’s girlfriend’s best friend. Yes, I have different levels. But, even if we don’t stalk people, we end up stalking other things we like. Like for me, clothes and shoes. I window shop online. ALL THE TIME. I know you do too and this one you can’t deny.

HOW TO: ROCK BELL BOTTOMS!!

Hola,

How have you guys been? My side has been a little hectic. But good hectic. You know where you’re busy but you love it. I think it is mainly because I love what I do so it doesn’t really bother me. Also, the love that you guys pour in is so encouraging that I see no pain in working  my ass off for anything. It has been a great journey so far. With all that support, I am also now finally selling my DIY projects through Instagram. So if you like what I make and do not have the time or energy to make it yourself, you can now buy it from you. For that you need to follow @thesassybeans on Instagram. TIA.

Moving forward, today we going to talk about bell bottoms. Aren’t you loving the fact that they are back? I sure am. Back as a teenager, I hated them. Literally. I have always been skinny and then the kind of bell bottoms we got were really loose. They hung on me like on a hanger and it was painful.  So this time too when they made an entry I was skeptical of how they would look on me. So instead of getting a full on flared jeans I got myself a pair of bootcuts from Myntra. I just wanted to make sure they don’t look as hideous as they looked the last time.

BACK TO THE 90’s!!

It is all coming back. Fashion repeats itself every 30 years they say and in a life span of 23 years I’ve seen it doing much more than that and more frequently.

Hey everyone!

I have been more than excited for this post for a long time now. There are two big reasons for the same, one I get to work with my best friend and a very successful blogger Komal Pandey of The College Couture. Second, that I get to show my love for the 90’s fashion, something I grew up with. Wohooo!
