Its amazing how a little shine and sparkle can make me smile. SHINY!! I'm wearing a red Allen Solly tank covered by a buttoned up vest that has tiny bead details that arent visible, H&M blue tights, a turquise ring and mask shaped earrings that arent visible and a silver belt.

I'm obsessed with belts. I buy a new one almost everytime I go into the market and i have them hanging on a clothesline in my storage space because they dont fit anywhere else. But I love that they can add character to an otherwise plain outfit and STRUCTURE. It cinches and makes me feel more shapely in the same outfit.
And Ill always wind up wearing one if I can find the time in the morning and add one that compliments the outfit.

Do you have a fetish for any particular garment type or accessory? Do you wear it all the time?  Tell me all about it.

You ARE Beautiful

Image from
I am SICK of receiving advertisements about new diet pills and sauna belts; of most of my girlfriends complaining about their bodies and trying to put themselves on restrictive diets; of my parent trying out each new fad and constantly counting calories; and of the media making your body a primary issue. I am also fed up of unsolicited advice on my body weight. I'm not saying I'm not guilty of dieting, cribbing or obsessing- just suggesting that its time we moved on to healthier and more fun obsessions. But this is dedicated to all those people who have ever deprived themselves, had body image issues or suffered from any eating disorder.

firstly, your body weight is not up for discussion unless YOU want it to be, and bring it up. So smile and tell those pompous people who try to tell you how much weight you need to lose/put on, to bugger off and mind their own business. Secondly, its absolutely normal to worry about the way you look. (hullo, whats fashion all about?) But you work with what you have, be proud of it and work your outfit.
FOOD. I dont believe in restrictive diets. I've been on one and I have never felt so weak, dazed and terrible in my life. It fogged up my brain and took away all my energy and turned my into a dizzy but cranky bitch. Point? Don't ignore what your body needs and appreciate that different body types are perfectly okay and only you need to accept yourself. Life is too short to give up those little pleasures to conform to somebody else's idea of a perfect body.
What do you think of this excessively talked about issue? Have you struggled in this aspect?

Early morning breeze and a floral blouse in sight. What better time to dress up?

I'm writing after ages, finally inspired again. Outfit- Floral Blouse, Mid-waist jeans, brown belt, bag, copper kolahpuris and red drop heart dangle earrings. :)
The lack of recent writing does however mean that my photography skills have hit an all time low, hence I look like a flat blob. :p

But honestly, dressing up this morning was such a good idea- I felt less sleepy in class despite having worked most of the previous night, and I was ready to step out and go to town, shop and had a simple fun day. Even though it wasn't eactly dressing UP- going to my college has its limitations. (sigh).

Its amazing how just a little thought into what you're wearing in the morning can impact how you feel the entire day!

Live.Because you can.

Sunshine!!! Finally!! It was still a little chilly this morning, but, thank god, there was a bright sun.
I was thinking this morning about life, (yes this is what happens at 4 AM on a monday, don't ask) and wondering why we we're always in a rush. For sure, there are tasks to be finished, projects and jobs to do and errands to run. but this is LIFE. We're only getting one shot. Why not live it? Why wait for special occasions to celebrate or dress up- they're so few.
Granted, I attend a law college, but we're still young; why not dress up while we can; before we're subjected to that restrictive black and white only dress code for work? I don't understand the culture of wearing sweats(pants/shirts) to class. EVERYDAY. Why? Not only do they look shabby, they also make you feel lousy, and law school is depressing enough without that. Wear what you want, be it high heels or silver hair extensions.
Live while you can, dress up because its a new day and thats special enough. Oh incidentally, I wore an outrageous navy and beige checkered hair bow to class today. Because it made me feel pretty, and how you feel about yourself at the end of the day is all that counts.

Its been such horrible gloomy rainy weather lately. And cold. Why is it COLD in JULY?! Its almost like we've been put in the Harry Potter novel where all the Dementors were set loose and causing misery. SIGH. Anyway, I felt like a little retro outfit today, not all the way, just a touch. Hence the Acid Wash oversize shirt tied into a knot; worn over a black tube from calvin and klien, skinny very blue jeans from Lee, and a cowboy-inspired belt; a silver ring. and of course in this weather, chappals. pretty ones with the newspaper print on the sole. 
The outfit is very comfortable, which is where I got lucky, given the day I've had so far with insufferable professors who cant make up their minds; colds and gossipy people. I love acid wash! Im so kicked its back on the runway. So, acid wash clothes. Love or Hate?
Hot chocolate and Chick-lit,

I really wanted to dress up more today, but I have a long day ahead and my piercing decided to ache this morning. SIGH. But thank god for kurtas. :) What I'm wearing: Plain white kurta from Fab India, Basic slim fit Jeans from Levise; copper kolahpuris, assorted cloth bangles from delhi haat, a green scarf and a Khadi Jute bag.

I do plan on making a skirt later today, will post pictures when I do. Meanwhile,

I also wanted an opinion on what everyone feels about wearing two different prints together; my gut level on clothing is usually very low so I keep playing safe; but is it okay to have two absolutely different prints going on top and bottom? Is it something you would wear; my ultimate fear is not only that it will clash, but also that it will make me look broader.

What I'm hooked onto today:
     I came across this comic, its the second Google result for girly comic; and its awesomely done :)
I'm crushing on these pair of boots, as part of my current love affair with all things studded or with sequins.
Bea Valdes continues to stun me with jewelery, it onspires me to go bead hunting every time. Look at this purple stunner.

Of cherries and sunlight
