Festive Beginnings – Ft. Baka/rebecca – Part 1

October for all Indians means only one thing! The most vibrant Quarter of the year is here! Every year I remember as a kid, the whole atmosphere at home and at school used to undergo a shift when October sets in and I realize the same excitement has transcended well into adulthood as well!

The Day my Illustration Came Alive!

image

I gave you guys an update around two months ago about an illustration I tried when I bought a black and white stripes T-shirt. Guess what? I achieved that exact look.! Are you proud of me or what 😝

I bought this skirt from Oasap recently but had written it off as ill fitting … But I decided to fit into it and make it work all the same and I decided it did work out pretty fine after all (whether everyone around me thought the look worked is another issue all together 😜 )
“You look like a munchkin”
“You look uncoordinated”
“You look clownish” were some of the comments I got. But hey, I’m the fashion blogger, not you guys! And a fashion blogger is as a fashion blogger does. So I decided to sweep all that negativity under the carpet and walk tall in my envisioned look all the same! 😁
I wore my jeweled black heels and a black and white pair of earring to complete the look.

What do you guys think? Red-black-white combination for life eh!?! 👍😎👊

Orange is the new Black – Part 4 (I swear this is the last part!)

So, roughly 20 posts ago I did three out of a four series post which had orange as the hero of the look. Do you remember? I won’t blame you if you don’t, I completely forgot about it myself 😝.
I thought now was the best time to complete this series because of three important reasons:
1. I got nothing else to show you guys
2. I got nothing else to show you guys
aaaand….
3. I got nothing else to show you guys!!!!
Hahaha. So buckle up to be tortured with this one. Yes yes I love y’all too. 😝😘

So for a change my tights were the element adding color to the costume. It was a lucky and a pretty find!. But I had to hunt for long to get a tunic to go with the tights. You know we enter this inescapable cycle of buying one piece of clothing and it just sees the darkest depths of our closet before we find its match? Well that’s exactly what happened to this tights 😝
I paired this dress with the same terracotta jhumkas I’ve shown you once before and the ethnic slippers which featured in my previous post.!

Hope you like the look. Have an amazing rest of the week y’all! Stay happy! 🙂

Sisters Night Out!

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 🙂

Palazzo puh-lease-o!

Urgh I’m on a row with the title making part of my brain. 😛 Anyway, I have been very apprehensive about buying palazzo pants for sometime now because it was a trend I was having a constant love-hate relationship with. This is because I really envied tall leggy lasses strutting in palazzo pants everywhere while yours truly is short and hmmm..how do I put this delicately.. not so leggy or lassy. Hahaha..
But I recently saw one blogger, who told me she was also short, rock these pants and thus I gained confidence to buy one. And so I did, and so an outfit of the day post. 😀

I bought these beauties at FabIndia an amazing chain of stores in India.

image

Hahaha I swear to God this meme was already there on Google. So you can imagine what this store does to us Indians. What’s amazing about this store is that they adopt every trend in traditional Indian fabric to give it a Desi-Twist and all of us fall for it straight away 🙂

I ensured that they were extremely loose so that they looked almost like a long skirt (just in case I again start feeling palazzos are not my thing :/ )

I paired them with a plain black fitting t-shirt and wore my new violet pumps because…no reason…just because I love them 😛

What do you think about the look? Do tell me!

Orange is the new black ~2

Hellooo all you lovely people! 🙂 how has your week been so far? My week…erm…let’s just say the lesser said the better. 😛
So as part two of my four part series I bring to you my second orange look 😀

So I bought this top from an Indian shop called “AND” a few months ago and the place I was going to this weekend seemed fun enough to release it 🙂 I tried a small mix-&-match, so I paired the halter neck top with something as traditional as the jhumka.
The jhumka is a traditional Indian earring worn by ladies for festivities and occasions. While it comes in various shapes, sizes and materials these days, they were originally made out of precious metals like gold and silver.
Coming back, so the current rage in my city is jhumkas made out of terracotta. When such adorable trends come by, why won’t I binge? Ofcourse I did 😀

image

They look pretty, yah? 😀
I kept the rest of the look simple. Since this blouse was pretty long, it covered my er..rather large behind 😛 so I chucked my jeans and wore it with a pair of super-comfy black above-the-ankle tights. These are truly the all purpose, fully exploited piece of clothing I own. Gym? Work? Casual outing? Shopping? I wear these tights every-frikkin-where. LoL.
The footwear was also pretty toned down. Wore these beautiful nude pumps I bought a while ago.

I love love luuurrvvee the cut work on these shoes 😀

Oh oh oh..and while we are at it, since my watch happened to match so beautifully with the look I thought why not show you guys that as well!

This fossil is one of my prized possessions 🙂 first gift to myself from my salary type of special!!! Its pink mother of pearl dial goes so well with any shade of pink, orange and red.

So what do you guys think? What would you pair halternecks with? Do tell me ❤

Orange is the new black! ~1

I’ve recently been stocking up too much of orange wear. Tell me, is it like in trend or something? Then my subconscious probably knows that and hence this orange overdose. 😛 so here is the first of four posts I’m going to do about my orange-craze. 😀

This first shirt is a tie-waist button-up type which I bought while street shopping. I thought it looked really cute with its white flowers and frills. Paired it with rose earrings and a really cool pair of pumps my friend once gifted me 😀
