Happy New Year!

A new year promises an array of possibilities. Even in fashion, we would have new reasons to look gorgeous. As 2013 comes to an end I look back and see some great fashion trends that only few years offered before.

My favorite trend of the year was boyfriend jeans followed by overalls and of course the very infamous cropped top! Well I don't have a midriff to flaunt a cropped top, but the other two are very much going to be in the closet soon. Am I too late? Maybe. These trends deserve some extension, don't they?

From Kate Middleton's elegant maternity style to Miley Cyrus' love to hate negligee, 2013 had an assortment of fashionable things on offer. This year I loved Marion Cotillard on the red carpet (and well almost everywhere, she is an absolute delight to look at, isn't she?). Beyonce at Mrs. Carter Show World Tour did mean some larger than life fashion and Jennifer Lawrence had a fashionable fall in a lovely Dior dress at the Oscar's. 

As we have an addictive weather to sit and eat, I am going to take a short break. Will do all bad things, no work and all play. You guys have wonderful new year celebrations. May the new year be really great for everyone.

Will be back in a few weeks.

Shades of Grey

It has every reason to be one of winter's most loved colours because the grey not only makes a good twin sister to the weather but also gives way to other colours to come, sit with it and look spectacular.

I don't remember any time of my life when I did not have a grey t shirt. Somehow I used to get a hint from some kind of weirdness that I am running short on them (the tees I mean). For me, a grey t shirt has to be on the top in a list of the most important basics.

I am sorry for not posting on Friday. Even I don't remember what I was doing. Hope you guys are enjoying the Christmas days. Enjoy! Have a good one!

Little Adornments

For some, accessories define an entire outfit. A necklace that makes a lot of statement, a pair of ear rings that refuse to unshine, a bag having that perfect allure or bracelets that tell a lot about a person's inner self.

At times I see someone playing really cool with accessories, I close my eyes and picture them sans the little adornments. And it does make a difference. They look different to that perfect flash screen installed in my head.

Achala got this pretty necklace for me from Colaba, Bombay. I would like to spend an entire day at Colaba some day, all alone, just shopping and eating sandwiches.

Hope you guys are having a good time. Christmas is not far. I am suggesting Secret Santa at work. Isn't Secret Santa a wonderful thing?

The Long and The Short of It

In my head, I have been taking the rebellious lane for a long time now. Ever since I was 10. I had pictures of studded jackets, messy hair, loud songs, old torn shoes coupled with similar feelings in my head. 

But on the outside, everything was subdued, silent and non messy. The interior had a serious conflict of personality with the exterior. But the interior always dominated. Maybe because the head is always stronger than the body. 

So do all people dress up the way they are inside their head, calm or restless, grunge or nudes & peaches, palazzos or leggings, basic or flamboyant, black or white? I don't know the answer to this question. But I do want to find and embrace whatever I am.

I believe it takes time to find out what look we really want to sport and not regret later. It will take a while for me. Till then, I will look at people to see what they are doing. You have a great weekend.
