Self Help, Helps Sustain!

Before I start this blog post, I just want to thank God for all the lovely people I have met because of my blog and because of the cause and ideals I am slowly but surely making progress towards. Ever since I started blogging about sustainability in what we wear, everywhere I turn around I see only sustainable brands, ethical bloggers and people who have adopted slow fashion as a form of living and its just so motivating to know this community is not a very small one. Am I experiencing the Baader Meinhof effect (*Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one stumbles upon some obscure piece of information—often an unfamiliar word or name—and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly.)  Probably, but look who isn’t complaining? Me! 🙂

Plain Jane OOTD

A Sunday fun dinner with friends called for a comfortable yet mildly dressed up look. I decided to pull out my lint-free skirt (Read this post to get what I mean 😉 ) and pair it with a warm pastel top. And this is what I looked like 😀

Of course my favorite Mr.Big Beads had to be included. This is one necklace which I haven’t gotten enough of!

This skirt, a navy blue plain one goes well with any light colored top and the fact that my chain is made of the very same light onion and navy blue beads just sewed the whole look up together! About that, I’m a happy-puppy 🙌🐕
Pairing lights with darks is a no-brainer for sure but its often the accessorizing which really completes and seals the look!

I love the way this Promod skirt has a gentle fall to it..it pleats up subtly and has a beautiful sway to it when I walk. It probably has something to do with the thick hosiery material it is made of!

The OOTD was done with my precious nude pumps..gosh I never get enough of them 😀

Have you ever kept an outfit so simple to make a piece of accessory the hero? If you haven’t, it’s always the perfect time to try. Do it and tell me how you fared!  Have a great week ahead! 🙂

This occasion calls for a…skirt! Wait..what?

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!
