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!

Oxidized jewelry and me!

I have for a long time realized my love for oxidized jewelry. I call it the zero maintenance jewelry. In fact the more careless you are at maintaining it, the more antique it looks! (Caution: don’t be careless enough and lose it though 😝)  I have, over the years, collected so many of these black metal pieces. In fact, two of them, I have been having from my fourth grade – that’s 15+ years now. 😍
This past week I have carefully worn my best oxidized jewelry to work to click pictures and to show you guys how chic they can be! So here we go!

Jhumkas:

The first jhumka especially never fails to solicit a lot of WOWs every time I wear it. And the best part, I bought it for real cheap while roadside shopping 👍

Chokers and Necklaces:

Oxidized jewelry are associated a lot with chokers and short necklaces in my country because they lend themselves so well to the pattern. Another growing trend is teaming them with black thread like this one:

Bangles:

One more piece of jewelry which attracts so much attention are these bangles. I love the intricate pattern on them and love how comfortable and antique they feel!

Other pieces:

The oxidized silver lends itself so beautifully well to other colors like this aqua blue beads. Oxidized gold jewelry is not as popular as its silver cousin but I love it all the same. And hoops and rings in this black metal look great with not-so-traditional garb as well! 🙂

That’s all from me folks! Have a brilliant weekend. Get lots of fun work done. Tell me how you liked this post and hope you stock up on black metal soon. Ciao! 💝

One Chambray, Three Ways!

I have been waiting for really long to get nice pictures of my ombre top to name this post “Of Ombres and Chambrays” and sound all sexy, but I just wasn’t getting the right look with my ombre blouse :P. So here I present to you “One chambray, three ways!!” I saw this chambray top at one of our Indian stores a while ago and bought it because it looked good (polka dots on chambray? Yes please!!) and the price was very reasonable. But once I started wearing it, I realized chambray redefined comfort especially in a hot city like mine! With no further ado, let’s go on with the looks!
Look 1: Chambray over crop pants

I simply loved this look for its sheer comfort because these pants I got from M&S are ones which you can sleep, live or party in forever! XD
Accessories: light blue large circular studs (love them), my tan crossbody bag, and nude platforms

Look 2 : Chambray as a jacket

This look was created just moments before rushing to work because the T-shirt was a bit too colorful and casual even for the “Casual Friday” at work. Doesn’t the chambray add so much definition to the look? And no guesses about the pant! 😛 what!?! They are that comfortable ok?
Accessories: gold button sized earrings and white heels.
Psst…this look was a success at work 😀

Look 3 : Denim on denim look

Because I was into sports and dance all my life (barring the last couple of years) I was never the slender legged petite beauty! Hence I’ve always shied away from fitting skirts or dresses. But this denim skirt, a hand me down from my cool aunt, was too inviting to pass! So I threw caution to the wind and went on with the look anyway 😀
Accessories: Light blue smaller studs and my favorite Nike running shoes. Oh those neon laces! ❤

So what do you think about these three looks? Which one is your favorite and what would you pair chambray 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 😀
What do you guys think? Do tell me
