In Her Shoes

This week, I am thinking about another Carrie, Carrie Bradshaw. If Sex and the City was made in 2015 or 2016, wouldn't Carrie be wearing sneakers or any kind of flats for that matter?

As much as she loved her shoes (even when they pinched her)  which were pretty and expensive and took her messages on her answerphone, Carrie would have not bought them all heeled and laced today. Sarah Jessica Parker's off duty style (In case you follow her on Instagram) suggests she would have carried the flats off really well too.

When I saw the flats trend coming, I did not see a soul happier than me. Being a fashion blogger, there is always a pressure to look a certain way and heels looked kind of important. I was once talking to a fellow blogger who said that no matter how pretty a dress is, somehow everyone made her feel that it looked drab without heels.

Not anymore though. As more and more people are wearing flats with pretty much everything these days, one doesn't need to feel that pressure now. I have four pairs of heels, but I know they will be used only for plays or really odd occasions that demand almost no walking.

Having said all this, I still am kind of jealous of people who can wear heels everyday and still manage to smile all the time.

Her Satchels

When I watch Homeland, one thing strikes me every single time: Carrie Mathison's sling bags, usually black, at times tan, often a bit bigger than usual sling bags. Though her clothes, in every season, seem to have been carefully designed corresponding to the flavour of the episodes, the bags remain similar. 

I think Carrie's sling bags give her a personality, the way she struts around, worrying the least about her bag makes me see her differently. This is in sharp contrast to Allison Carr's bags which are fancier (and of course expensive).

Sling bags are popular everywhere. Perfect for an outing where you actually do not need much to carry. Cotton sling bags have a college like feeling, while leather ones look more sophisticated. Embroidered sling bags are loved by the bohemians from hearts among us.

By the way, did you know that sling bags were originally used for delivering letters?

Some Pink!

When I started this blog, it was never going to be about just me. I had thought of travelling around, taking pictures and posting them everyday. All this was supposed to happen along with regular OOTD posts.

Somehow I have not been able to do everything that I intended to. There have been days when I had no one who could take any picture of mine and there have been days when I didn't go out anywhere. Then there are days when I just won't leave my room, won't move at all. At times I wonder, how do people who struggle with depression, manage to do anything consistently for a long period of time. 

I guess they try, a bit harder than others. And something as cheerful(for me at least) as fashion does need you to be up and about all the time.

Anyway, posting some pictures here. Hope you guys are doing well. You have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram, because I am not giving up yet.

Life Is Beige

Today, designer Gaurav Gupta launched his collection 'Melt' at the Amazon fashion Week. I first talked to Gaurav in 2011. A simple person with heart of gold, his the then collection was named BABEL, based on a movie of the same name. I have always found it very interesting, the way he names his collections. 

Anyway, I don't have much to say today. You guys have a great weekend.

Weird And Final

I caught myself snoring.

I know some people may find it interesting and maybe impossible, but on a dark February night when there were no fans or air conditioners to interrupt the silence, I woke up because of a sound that came from nowhere but my own nose.

I got up immediately, feeling that restlessness one feels after knowing something that is weird and final if not bad and devastating. Remember that feeling when you first realised you are a grown up or had to be ready in a few days to change your school when one of your parents had a transferable job? Changes that we have no control over. 

I know this has nothing to do with fashion. Ignore the random piece of information and have a nice weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the blog.

And I Do It Again

Okay, I promise, with all my sincerity and a genuine irritability at my innate laziness, I won't buy any more maxi dresses. Okay, at least not this year :) There may be three more maxi dress posts this year by the way. Someone has to wear the pile that I have already bought.

On a serous note, I am sick of wearing maxi dresses again and again. But why did I start doing so in the first place? Well, firstly, I think I have gained weight. I go through those Daily Mail pages (I am sure the intellectual ones amongst us don't do that, and that I will be judged for that, but who cares!) that say Jessica Alba hides her wonderful figure in a loose maxi dress, and I say, there you go! Let me wear a maxi dress. People will think I am hiding a figure that is nothing less than divine.

And then there are warm winters and non waxing days and bad cramps days and God knows what days. And it is not about men. I don't give a rat's ass if some people have a lot of opinion about the length of a woman's dress.

Maxi Dresses In January

It has been actually a warm winter in Delhi this time, courtesy: El Nino effect. Hence no legwarmers or overcoats were to be seen.  In the middle of the winters, people let the invincible summers in their hearts out. 

I am keeping this post very short. You guys have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the blog.
