A riot of colours

Take a minute and imagine the world around you without colors, how boring and unexciting life would be. The sense of color is as extended as the sense of LIFE.
Every color has a unique effect on individuals and stimulates various responses e.g. the fast food companies use red, yellow and orange colors in their restaurants and product packaging as these colors are found to be helpful in increasing appetite. A research by the University of British Columbia has proven that blue color enhances creativity whereas; the color red helps to be focused and has a positive effect on memory.
The Blackfriars Bridge made of black iron when painted green, showed a decline in suicide rate up to 30%. Studies show that pink color is beneficial for stimulating responses from females whereas dark green color has a motivational effect on males.
Moving beyond the gyaan I incorporate two trends in my wardrobe religiously and pretty much unknowingly , the first one being monochrome and the second one backfiring with colours,no really! This dress has got to my favourite in terms of comfort, that I don’t need to wear anything to layer over or under, which is a bliss for me!

After the making some major headlines, parrot lady finally returns home and I take no chances on getting inspired. I have previously donned tonnes of graphic, this one is has an Indian ladies across the state in their ethnic dresses. Zoom in to figure out which states are featured.

Style your way to Paris-team Mumbai

Like any other blogger that you’ve anticipated it was the first time ever my peers came forward and actually forced me to participate. I had long dropped the Idea but as I was writing an ode to my grandmother in my previous blogpost it struck to me I owe on to my grandad. What makes it even more special is the precious Swarovski I keep worth I was gifted by my grandfather on my 15th birthday, also the year he passed away. No I'm not banking on your sympathies but sharing a real piece of pie of my fabulous mango summers. Being the eldest grandchild , all my holidays were spent in Delhi and Agra with my grandparents.
I dedicate this to you Dadu and I know that you watch me over .
Some people find their personal style in a uniform-type look — a definable aesthetic. For me, it’s the unexpected crazy shoe, piece of jewelry, or item of clothing that makes an outfit of mine feel slightly off. It’s fun to wear and it’s fun to look at, and I think fashion should be fun. It doesn’t mean you give up looking chic or elegant if you don’t want to, but it’s all in the degree you want to take it to. One thing to remember is to build some basic foundation pieces into your wardrobe so you have clothes to work with. I look through my closet at times and find that I get overrun with the weird stuff, and need to maintain some level of normalcy to build a look. At this point in my evolution, even the most amazing banana platforms require some level of balance. I paired  my organza tulle jacket with an white mermaid fit slip inside. The outfit has been designed by me and the peeptoes are from tresmode.
I associate with white in a lot of ways ,to this post.
Let me know what do you think of the post and my entry to Style your way to paris contest by POPxo Daily. Take some time out and like my entry on Instagram.

I will be back very soon with another post, till then

Stay Chic

Another day tending my boredom,I started to scrounge around the house. We tend to forget just how much junk we’ve stashed away in closets and drawers until we start digging into our nearly forgotten summer clothing. Old cell phones gathering dust, an unused hand-me-down crockpot, and dresses that haven’t seen the light of day in years, all just wasting space. It’s time to get rid of that clutter .So I found this amazing bedsheet-a complete collection of covers, duffets and pillow cases. 
This was a set passed by my grandmother to my mother and had sadly been the only hand –me –downs she owned from her mother, apart from the jewellery she refuses to show me until I get ready to get married.

I instantly fell in love with the fabric, the cloth ,the memories. Seems almost surreal, being I’ve never really had the chance to meet my maternal grandmother. I twitched ,hesitated but I asked my mother for the set and she very surprisingly obliged. And that’s the story of my dress translating from sheets to this dresses. Infact it is my mother who stitched it for me and I proudly adorn it as one of my priciest collection.

THE OOTD is just a reminder of my mother and grandmother ,hence I haven’t accessorized at all. The smokey eye and red lip subsides by the vintage feel of this maxi.
Do you have any fond memory of a dress, please do Share yours. Enjoy the post,until next time.

Sometimes love is not enough, and then you find that Maxi

I've never really been afraid of trying out new styles and showing more than a little skin required but to justify I've my own fears too. Like a jumpsuit I've never found this piece of clothing particularly pleasing , with my biggest obsession about how/ why do I need to remove everything to pee. And I belong to the sect that says yes fashion is taking the pain with joy. Enough with the rants and being told how I'm supposed to cover up when wearing a bandeau/strapless dress. Well everybody can go to hell 'cos I'm really going to wear it everywhere now!
So here my very graphic purchase from SPLASH that I absolutely adore .I've been wearing the dress all the time with jackets, shrugs shirt, over a skirt yup!
So it was time that the maxi basked in it's own glory. Now the bandeau dress does nothing really great for arms but I 'm oozin with a certain confidence and I 'm really liking it .I paired this dress with gorgeous earring from BLUR Accessories and a ring from Colaba. I really prefer wearing gladiators but this TRESMODE heels do the justice too.
Sanky braided my hair to one side in a thick conrow after crimping my hair so all that volume isn’t backcombing but crimping that gives the hair air and texture to work with.

What your current favourite outift?I will see you next time!
