This weekend I’m teaching Idioms to the kids which the organization I volunteer at are associated with and that explains the reason for the idiomy title 🙄
(#funfacts : straight from the shoulder actually means being honest or frank 😝)
So, long long ago so long ago, a blogger friend had a post about a beautiful studded bag she had and I realized I had a similar backpack full of beautiful embroidery and I thought why not a post on that.!
Here it comes!!! 🎼🎶🎼
It is a black backpack with the flaps on the top and sides alone in white with a splash of colorful random but beautiful embroidery!
This bag is such a show stealer that I use it judiciously. When I’m dressed very well I give this bag the skip because it’s more likely that it will steal my thunder anyway 😜
Leaving you with some more images of the bag and the link to the site where I purchased it from 🙂
You can find this same bag here!
Have a nice weekend folks!
Seeing the title, don’t get your hopes high. We are the most boring pair of sisters whose idea of crazy fun is going to a Vegetarian Italian restaurant in the city. XD FUN FUN FUN!
In our defense, the broccoli cheese ravioli and the pan fried mushroom starters there are to die for. So..yes. FUN FUN FUN!
It has been a while since I shopped so basically these days I’m digging into my closet and picking out long-forgotten pieces and trying to pair them right and make an outfit out of them.
So, in one such dig, I found these pair of bright (almost neon-y) peach crop pants. These were an impulse buy back in 2012 when color pants were ruling the roost and I have worn them exactly once (the day after I bought them to be precise). Guilt and the prospect of a new blog post made me try on these pants recently, and they fit just fine. However the color was an issue because as much as I love bright colors this was a bit too in-your-face bright for me, so I sobered it down with a plain black T-shirt. I must say this plain black Tee has become such a wardrobe staple for me. I should probably think of buying them in more shades because they go so well with pants and skirts! 🙂
Coming back, the black T-shirt did a good job of slightly toning down the peach pants and I was good to go! 🙂
I completed this look with this mad owl chain which I bought off the streets of Bombay look ago, a cross body bag which was almost the same shade as my pants (for some reason the color seems so different in photos) and my orange and green peeptoes 🙂
Normally this is where my post would have ended. However yesterday my sister asked me if she could share blog space with me and I was like HellYa!! :* ❤
My sister is five years younger than me. She is pursuing her mechanical engineering undergraduate degree in a college in my city. Just when I think her sense of style is too easy and laid back she churns out outfits which look so comfortable and yet so chic 🙂
So this was what she wore last night!
She wore a midnight blue with white stars blouse and paired it with these new formal tights she bought recently. They look very cool with gold zippers at the thighs and ankle. She shares shoe sizes with me so she wore one of my black heels to complete the look. Cute no? 😉
Well that brings me to the end of my post. Do tell me your thoughts on both the outfit. Have a happy lazy Sunday 🙂
Haha.. Me and my essay-ish titles! Well that’s that and now coming to the topic. Let me tell you guys something. In my country, India, people don’t show leg. No. Not many of them and not often. I don’t know why. That’s mainly why in all my post (well most of them at least) I’m in jeans or tights. But sometimes when you are going to some places you are quite confident you can pull off some leg showing without raising eyebrows and I was headed to one such place today and I thought why not? 😉
So…here I am…feeling skittish in a skirt. Wait now that would have made a better title wouldn’t it have? “Feeling skittish in skirt” Never mind. I’m going to let that be!
I had a really old extremely comfortable cotton dark cocoa brown skirt which I decided to pair with a light brown sheer top. Its a long tunic and hence I decided to tuck it into my skirt to get some shape.
I’m so excited about being able to incorporate a pop of pink throughout the look with my belt, my cross body bag and my shoes (the ones which featured for the first time in my previous post and was a smashing hit and made me feel like a boss and…never mind, I’ll brag some other time)
However, since my sister just didn’t agree with that pink popping in random places, I also tried another look. Mellowed the whole appearance down. Check it out.
The nude pumps and belt just made the whole outfit look different right?
Guess which look I went for? Wicket!! The first one of course.! Duh who doesn’t want a random color popping in the oddest places throughout their otherwise sane pairing of light and dark brown? 😛 Right?
Anyway, I have saved the best for the last because that’s what I do best. My idea of suspense and all. Guess who recently grumbled about lusting for gold watches? Me! Guess who bought a stunning gold watch at-long-last? Ba-dum-tssss yeah baby I did!!
Looks bloody brilliant don’t you think? That’s me admiring my watch. Hope you are doing just that too. 😀 Have a lovely Sunday!
