Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by things around you. Its like everything around seems so big that you can’t make sense of anything. It happens to me sometimes when I look at things around me and wonder what is the purpose of my existence. What role am I supposed to play. Why am I here? Everything looks so large and unattainable. I feel like I am never gonna reach where I want to because its so beyond my reach. I look at the vastness of the universe and feel like a tiny speck of dust. It is unbelievable how one thought can bother you so much. Can we as humans control these thoughts?

Probably yes, if and only if we can separate these overwhelming thoughts from emotions and say “hmmm, what i think and feel is not so important”. Learning to separate the thoughts from emotions is a big challenge. However, if one could master this process one will feel empowered in ways one has never felt.

I was discussing this with a friend today and he rightly pointed out that we search for answers in others when truly all the answers are within ourselves. We just need to listen.

Just some thoughts for the day cos I was feeling deep :-)))
Have a great day

I love myself a Black n white outfit. It’s chic, its eye-catching and it works for every occasion. Recently I have been wearing a lot of Black n White so thought will share some of my Monochrome looks with you. This one has to be one of my personal favourite outfit. I loved the way it all came together.
How was your weekend guys. I had a binge – astic Sunday. For some reason I went berserk and woke up with a very guilty me this Monday morning. I think all the carb and sugar loading makes you extremely lethargic which is what I was feeling the whole day. Anyhow kicked my lazy ass and got some work done. Tomorrow is a new day.
Hope you guys like my look. Enjoy

xxx, Love

Greenery!!

I had completely forgotten about this post and so its been sitting in my Drafts for the longest possible time. Summer kind of inspires all of us to play with colors. This season I did experiment with a whole lot of bright colors as you can see in my previous few posts.
I went a little berserk but o boy was I pleased or what. For now, I am taking a little break from the bright shades and toying with the idea of monochromes and subtle tones. So this one was the last one in my file of coloured outfits that I am gonna push aside for sometime and bring you a little more variety in monochromes or maybe something else…. so wait for it. Meanwhile this is just an ode to the color of the year “Greenery”.
I love love love this skirt that has been with me for more than 7 years now. I can never seem to part with it. Also I have to tell you about 2 things that I get asked a lot about.

One is this brand of sunglasses called Quay. It’s an Australian brand that I discovered last year and ever since I am hooked on to these. They are super affordable and have some really cool shades. Everytime I wear any of their pieces (I have a whole lot of quay), I do get asked about them. I hear they are now collaborating with Kylie Jenner to bring out a capsule collection. That would be exciting. I think you can order them online. I have linked their site above

Another thing I wanted to tell you all about are these Bag straps that are quite a rage. I got mine from Michael Kors and it has been so handy. I have attached to one of my old LV Bags which otherwise is super heavy and I have been using that bag for so long now becos of this strap. I feel they work the best in contrasting colors. You could check them out.

Le Trench!!

IMG_4070

IMG_4070
I like the idea of minimalism. There is something about the power of clean lines. Sometimes that one piece sans any layering, volume or accessory is “just” the right amount you need and it works well on its own. I had a similar feeling when I spotted this Trench dress while scavenging around in the “Last Pieces” section of Zara. I think it just might be a size smaller but I was like who cares, I am gonna squeeze myself to fit in. The other thought that ran into my mind is that if not like a dress I could always wear it as a coat. Hmmmm that can work.
For now leaving you with some images of my Trench dress.

French-ing it!!

IMG_4423

IMG_4423

For as long as I remember I have been fascinated by Paris. Not only for the romantic place that it is, but also for the Fashion Mecca it is to the world. It is the house to most of the beautiful brands that we know of. This is the place from where Fashion originates. No wonder French brands & style are the most sought after. It’s all about elegance and minimalism. It’s effortless with a whole lot of attitude. To dress like a Parisian is an ultimate sartorial goal but accomplishing it is rather difficult. There is a lot more to it than facetiously throwing on a beret. However, having said that, that is exactly what I have done here cos I believe in mixing and matching a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
I decided to give this very simple dress a little bit of Parisian Twist and voila I was happy with the results.
Hope you like it too.

Simplistic Elegance!

IMG_3339

IMG_3339

I have forever wanted a Blazer dress. Like I said before I like minimalism & like to keep things simple. I believe that in simplicity lies the elegance. This Blush Pink Blazer dress is just the thing that I wanted. It’s subtle in colour and classy. I also recently ordered these Nude strappy heels from Chinese Laundry which went perfectly with my dress.

Guys, I also wanted to apologise for my little glum post (in terms of writing) last time. I would want to keep everything happy around here cos thats how it is. So no more sad things, I promise. A big thank u to all those who reached out to me. I am in the pink of things currently. Everything has been great this week. I shot a couple of outfits. I have some close relatives coming to stay over at my place & I am very excited. Additionally, I am feeling more energetic so I am hoping to kick some serious ass in the Gym.

Do let me know if you like my look.. This blazer is currently available in Zara. If you like it , you might wanna get it.

Que Sera Sera!!

IMG_4217
Past few days have been very hard on me both physically and emotionally. I have been under the weather and not feeling too good about things. As a result have been consumed by stress eating and as many of you know feeding too much comfort food loaded with sugar and carbs can only lead to further slump. I eat and then feel guilty about eating junk and then eat more because I am not feeling good. It’s a vicious cycle that needs to be broken :-)

Many a times we find ourselves in uncomfortable situations & by uncomfortable i mean something we are not pleased with or are finding difficult to deal with . We have our own ways of coping with them like for me i will cut myself off from everyone and sulk for sometime and then after I am really tired of self pitying i will kick my own butt and bounce back much stronger.

I feel we can not let people or situations break us. Sure some stuff is harder to cope than other so it may just take longer time to bounce but you will. I mean you have to. At that moment it hurts and it hurts a lot but then i ask myself could i have done something more & if the answer is yes, i will give it multiple shots but if the answer is NO, its best to leave it at that and move forward. Maybe its not meant to be any more and like someone told me dont fear to lose anything .. if its meant to be it will be.. if not just dont sweat about it. I guess I decided to give up on my fear… Que sera sera.

I was finally feeling a little better so took out this bright blue long shirt for a day out. I realised that one of the advantages of not being so tall is that u could wear a long top as a dress. Now here’s looking at the brighter side and beating those blues. Cheers

Breaking the Tradition!!

IMG_3103

IMG_3103
Ofcourse I am a little late to join the Fashion Bandwagon, mainly because I was yet to find a piece that appealed my sensibilities. Alas I found one!
A Japanese traditional garment that has been bent out of rules is the new IT garment in the swish fashion circuit. There is an inherent glamour to the Kimono – a garment with a beautiful Japanese history. These Bold, bright silk robes that look like they can fit over anything from a figure hugging mini dress to a simple Jeans & tee are perfect for the weather in the city. It may be a traditional to wear them in Japan but they are breaking all kind of traditions in the Fashion industry so what do you think?

I am using this light weight layering piece here with my heat – wave appropriate mini dress to add a bit of glam. Also if you notice, no sunglasses after a long time because I was in a mood to work my eyes. Hope u like this look appropriate for a night out in the town.

California’ Sunshine

IMG_2564

There was something very catchy about this Tee. Probably the colour that made me pick it up. I am not usually a big fan of Tees unless they have to be worn inside or they have to really really fit well and make me look slim :)
I must have circled around this one a 100 times (i mean during my 100 visits to Zara) and finally picked it up because I couldn’t resist the colour. It was as if it was begging me to take it home. How did it know that at this point I needed something bright, lively & perky to come into my life :-)

PS : There is even a picture of me smiling from ear to ear in the end of the post. Well, that hasn’t happened in a long time in my pics. Must be the Tee I am guessing. As they say “Do not let anyone dull your Sparkle”.
