Style Files: Blue dress and grey woolen shrug

Remember I had started spring cleaning one day when I found that coat, guess what I had also found a sweater-shrug , well I don’t know if there is such a thing, but it is a woolen sweater so small that it qualifies to be called a shrug :-). This cute little grey shrug is another great find from thrift market in Noida, India. The dress is from Orsay, it was on special price of 15 Euro. The heels are the same that I wear in almost every outfit post. They are from H&M, so old that I forgot how much they were for but I am assuming not more than 20 Euro. Continue reading

Ankle cut-off DIY denim and Christmas in Colmar

Hey all ,

Hope you are having great holidays wherever you are in the world and are as stoked as I am for ringing in 2017 soon 🙂

We celebrated our Christmas in a beautiful French city COLMAR , which truly was magical. There were five Christmas markets in all and although it was far from white Christmas, the city was dripping in Christmas spirit. Me and my husband share a special liking to the city and becuase it is only an hour away from where we live in Germany and Colmar has Sephora so I never hesitate to visit this gorgeous corner of France.

My love for all things Plaid

Plaid is one iconic pattern that goes back to thousands of years in history and I am sure you would agree that it will continue to be a fashion staple for years to come.

I love patterns in general, but with plaid I share something special, you don’t believe it? check out the pics at the end. Well, when I think of it, I believe my love for plaid may have something to do with my love for “Scotland”. It’s my dream to go to the “Tartan” land for more reasons than one. We all have watched “Braveheart” movie right ? or “Outlander” series ? mmmm… if not, you know what you could watch during this weekend, I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂 Continue reading

Piled higher and Deeper (PhD): Comic strip that depicts my Life

In my last post I did a short rant about how infrequent my blog posts are BECAUSE I am trying to finish my PhD. I got a lot of support from all you wonderful friends, which I appreciate from the bottom of my heart. I got so encouraged reading such kind , warm and supportive comments that I  got my act together and decided to do at least one more post before the month of scanty posts (read October) is done with.

Olympic 2016 Fashion Editorial-“For the Love of Fashion” Friday Series

So this is the Olympic year and, I was up all night to catch the Olympic 2016  opening ceremony. It is always accompanied by some breathtaking moments,  offering a great sense of pride and patriotism.

Sitting in your living room, you often recall your glorious sports memories from  back in the good old school-days time. What ? you don’t ? OK then may be it is just me but the point is OLYMPICS is a great deal. I, for one try to catch as much sports as I can and thoroughly enjoy every bit of it.

Additionally, what I enjoy  to watch is the olympic uniforms of all the teams from around the world. I put on my own critic glasses to scrutinize each and every uniform very diligently and then passing judgements on what I like and what I don’t. This is the beauty of being confined in the living room, you have all the power in the world to pass on judgements, isn’t it? 🙂 Continue reading

Fashion Blogs losing their essence. Really ?

Warning: Longread and no pictures 🙂

Fashion blogging is pretty saturated, this is what we read these days. But I will not dwell on it today.

I am instead compelled to streamline my  thoughts on  the changing environment of the fashion and lifestyle blogging world.

I read a few posts (by Indian bloggers) which talk about how most new bloggers are generic with no distinct taste and style. This made me think on this whole issue of changes that fashion blogging has seen recently and how unfair it is to judge new bloggers in the block for getting the blogging wrong.

Well, I have been an avid blog follower and reader since 2009-2010. I always believed that one thing that made blog -a blog – was the freedom to own it and use it as your creative space. And creative abilities my differ from person to person. NONE of those blogs were anyway meant for making money because, simply put, there was no market AVAILABLE for the blogs.

Flared Jeans: How to Style

There is no doubt that our generation has seen communication technology to grow by leaps and bounds but have you ever wondered how fashion and style had been crossing borders way more faster than any thing else even at the time when we were restricted to just one national television channel. When the West was celebrating bouffant hairstyle in the 60s, we had our own mothers in the East following the trend by puffing out and teasing their hair because that was the in-thing  during that times.

Another such rage was the Bell-bottoms (Flared pants). It is safe to say that this particular style has seen more than three generations and is still lingering around, not as popular as it was in the 70s, but guys we have to give it up for the Flared pants to stand tall through times.
