Print Preview-🌷🌸🌺Welcoming spring!🌻🌼🌹

A change in weather calls for a change in theme and a change in theme based on the weather calls for us to talk about the FLORAL PRINT! Associated with spring spirits from time immemorial the floral print is close to every woman’s heart and that’s why I chose this to be the first print we discuss in the new theme!

Having always been a representation of the free spirited woman there is something incredibly attractive, yet easy, grand and yet not at all made up about this print!

While western designers have used and over used this print for many years now, it is quite new in the Indian runway scene! A reason why this Anushree Reddy Lehenga was literally a runway-hit πŸ˜‰

Using florals in blouses (crop tops used by Indian women while wearing a Saree!) have been around for a little longer!

Designers around the world have realized that women lap up anything floral. Why else would flowers be used in any and every surface used by women? 😊

(Floral headphones seriously? πŸ˜‚)

So how did I incorporate this trend? Honestly, it wasn’t the toughest task guys.

No. I don’t know why I was holding onto my braid. πŸ˜‘ in every single photo. Gosh. So moving on, I got this floral crop top at a Westside Sale. As I’ve said before, when it comes to crop top lengths, the struggle is real! 😰
So what was meant to be a crop top for a long- torso-ed person (see how I steer away from adjectives like tall, fit, et all?!) was in fact an almost full length top for me. Owing to this confused hemline, once again my high waisted red umbrella skirt came to the rescue! Honestly haven’t I overused this piece? The rest of the look was in subtle gold because I liked how the gold looked with my red skirt.

Outfit details : Crop top and heels- Westside, Skirt – Oasap.com, Shades and clutch – Polkadotandyou (Instagram Sellers), Earrings – Thrifted in the beautiful lanes of Mumbai!

There have in fact been other instances when I have worn florals right here on this blog! Like this one below πŸ‘‡

Floral tights – Imasocool or what?πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚

I am so looking forward to putting up some amazing posts in the Prints theme in weeks to come. And in my constant bid to make this blog more about every woman and not just me, I have already asked my friends to submit pictures of any quirky fun prints they own. I would be more than thrilled if you all would also send in pictures with any print you particularly love to frillthrillsindia@gmail.com ! Enjoy your long weekend Indian readers. I know I am going to! πŸ’πŸ˜˜

All images which don’t have my beautiful face on it are from Pinterest! πŸ˜‰

Spotty Friday!

Hey you guyssss!

Wazzzaaa!?! So I actually tried a trend from my imaginary checklist of trends-to-try and boy did I love it :mrgreen: say hey to animal prints! βœ‹
I just had to pose for a picture with my coolers on because they have animal print temples too ( yes the parallel beams on the shades which perch above your ears are apparently called temples. #thankyougoogle 😂)
So let me show you a complete version of the OOTD

This leopard print blouse has been lying in my closet untouched for quite a while now because I’ve been apprehensive about wearing it – courtesy – my mom. Every time I take this blouse out she does a perfect eye roll and goes like “why would anyone in their right minds walk around looking like an animal.” (I guess she completes the paragraph in her brain like “how creepy would it be if a leopard dresses up like a  human” …but yeah she doesn’t say it…and as long as she doesn’t, I’m happy 😝)
So I paired this printed top with my favorite pair of jeans I bought more than a year ago from Levis. Hope you trust me when I say this; there has not been a single pair of jeans which has fit me this well since my childhood.. Hahha. :mrgreen: One thing I’ve learnt about jeans through the years is that we can equate it to buying sports shoes. Though the brand, the cut etcetera may be exactly the same, the fit sometimes differs, so the key is just definitely trying them on and checking as against buying them online or without actually trying them. Been there done that burnt my fingers and felt bad guys. So please don’t repeat that mistake!
And now introducing the best part of the outfit…ba-dum-tssss!!! My heels!!! I got these glitter heels recently and I absolutely love them to bits. I can strut in them for life. Yayyy…so comfortable yet sexy 😆
