The Usual Days

At times when I travel in metro and happen to see a well dressed girl I first notice the small details; the way she has tied up her hair, a small ring, the bracelet that shines alongside her watch. 

And then I wonder, does she always look this good? Or are there days when she looks entirely different, when she did not even look into the mirror before heading out to anywhere? Are these her usual days?

And as I wonder about the usual days of well dressed girls, I realize I usually do not see a mirror before leaving home. And that's not a good habit. But that is the usual me. Trust me, I tend to change that.

And one question, do you have days when you leave home without looking into a mirror?

Hair Woes

I love how French women style their hair. Or should I say not style their hair? The way they wear a lovely dress and go about their business in a long, really messy but great looking hair. The lack of shampoo somehow seems to help.

And yes, they never blow dry their hair. There is nothing perfect about their hair. Its just imperfect loveliness. The long, fuzzy, out of bed hair adds a lot to how they look. At times I make notes, no dye, no highlights, no chopping unless it is a real bob and no shampoo. 

I envy them, because I have oily hair that look terrible after a day of washing. If I shampoo them today, this is how they would look the next day. No option but to tie them up.

What do you do with your hair on the non shampoo days?

Colour Blind

I love Kalki Koelchin. Every time I watch her movie, I love her more. She is a tigress, a quiet one. When I went to watch her play Colour Blind, I did not know what to expect. 

Watching the play was like reading about Rabindranath Tagore in a fashion where you turn a page of the book and skip some and come back to the previous one. Like you are trying to get some answers. You move between the present and the past, over and over again.

Kalki played the character of the writer of the play and Victoria Ocampo, the Argentine writer with who Tagore spent some time with and was attracted to. About her performance, what I can say is Kalki knows her onions. And there was something about the way she walked on stage. Some day I would like to tell her that in person.

Why I talked about Colour Blind, the play? Well, I wore this to the play.

They All Should Never Look The Same

A few days back, I saw my flatmate watching a TV show on TLC in which they gave makeovers to people. The difference between the before and the after was really striking. The best thing that I noticed about the show was that the stylist did not force her style on the participants. She made sure the participants were comfortable and happy with their new look. If they did not like a certain colour or do not really like a certain way of dressing, they were heard.

The whole thing made me think of how we feel free and happy when we dress up the way we want to. And I find it strange when some people think everyone in the world should dress up in a certain way. They do not even consider, even for once, that not everyone likes the same thing. I have seen this happening a lot within gangs of girls. Some of them tend to tell others how to dress up and most of the time, they all end up looking just the same! 

Some like bodycon dresses, some like shift dresses or maxi dresses or no dresses but pants or shorts. Some like their shorts to look tailored while others like them really casual or even ripped.

They all should never look the same. 

I am happy in those distressed jeans and white t shirt and my Daniel Wellington watch. Hope you have used the discount coupon rupadw while buying a watch from their collection. Checkout Daniel Wellington's website here and their Instagram account here.

Anyway, enough of my observations. You guys have a great weekend. Please like my Facebook page. And yes, I am now there on Instagram as well.

The Precious One

In all the life that I have lived so far, I have seen people being very possessive about a few things e.g. a piece of jewelry, a box of collectibles, a family heirloom etc. I had this friend who would keep a book gifted by her mother safe in a wooden box and no one dared touch it.

In my case, that much treasured possession is my Daniel Wellington watch. I have never seen a better designed watch and there is nothing I would like to change about it. I am so possessive about it. I have given my previous watch to my sister. But no one will get this one :)

Check their website to explore a world of the best edgy watches ever. And yes, here is the good part. Use coupon code rupadw before making the payment and you will get 15% discount. The code is valid till 30th November.

Don't forget to have a look at their Instagram account. Trust me, you will love it.

Rock Chic Meets Pearls

I have tried to add some feminine element into this one. Pearls. Pearls remind me of my friend Pooja. That girl would add pearls to anything and everything and it looks so cool. I will feature her on my blog. Soon. I have not even asked her yet. But why ask? She will be here.

Like A Boy

Some of us are born tomboys. My sister was the big one. I mean if being tomboyish was measured with a number, say 3, 6 and 10, then she is an absolute ten. In this post, we have tried to create a boy inspired outfit that would look totally cool. I mean, look at this one, if you  increase the length of those shorts a bit, just a bit, an average boy could totally rock this outfit. 

You guys have a great weekend.
