Lookbook AIFW AW 17

This year’s rendition of the Amazon India Fashion Fashion- Autumn Winter was quite a mad house. The fashion community was on a roll. From designers, to reporters, bloggers to enthusiasts, everyone had their own share to provide. You can find the show to show review on my Instagram, @spill_the_sass. But here are all my looks from the 4 days that I was there. Hope you like them! 🙂

Feminine?

Feminine.

I fail to understand what that word means or stands for. Of course I am aware of all the meanings and synonyms we do attach to it. The first meaning that comes up when I type the word on Google says, “having qualities or an appearance traditionally associated with women, especially delicacy and prettiness.” I can agree with the first part of this sentence, but the second? That is sheer bullshit if you ask me.

How to: Layer for fall.

I have started feeling chilly in my class room’s AC and my night walks on the terrace. This is a sign. Winter is coming. (That’s most from Game of Thrones that I know of!) In my hometown on the other hand, winter is blooming quite swiftly and my father does not leave the house without a jacket.

So for north India, the good times are here. And even though you may judge me for a fact that I like summer better, I don’t mind dressing up for winters too! Specially right now, when you don’t have to layer tons of garments, not here in the capital at least. Hence, here is my guide to light layering which I am quite implementing these days!

How to: Quirky shirts!

In case you have followed my blog for sometime, you must have come across ways I style different things in. I love it and that basically was why I started the blog in the first place.

Shirts are my favourite when it comes to these styling extravaganzas. I have already done some stories on styling a shirt. In case you missed, here you go MY TRYST WITH A BOYFRIEND SHIRT!ONE SHIRT FIVE WAYS; REVISITED!!.

But recently I came across a view that people felt that these styling experiments can only be done with basic, plain, and in other words, boring shirts. Today, we are proving that wrong.

Power play with Summation.

Slamming patriarchy right in the face.

For every time we’ve been looked down upon for being a girl, treated as weak for who we are, shown pity for  our existence, we’ve only come above stronger. No matter how fancy and elegant the previous years in history may look, the condition of women has been a sad topic.

I feel lucky to be born in this era, being aware of my rights and capabilities and not forgetting that there is still tons that has to be done for women, around the world.  I’ve been a firm believer in girl power and that only women can help women. I hate to see when girls get jealous of each other and nothing like a ‘sister code’ exists.  I do not want this to look like a rant but I would request all girls to support each other in their endeavours and they will see what a better place the world could be.

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.
