Because less is more: iPhone Photography

Our very first experiment with iPhone photography: testing our skills and knowledge.

Minimalism is indeed the art of less. It focuses on a few essential elements of life and cast unnecessary things aside.
Today through this iPhone photography we’re trying to achieve a minimalist photo creation.

Shirt Dress

Fall is the (ONLY) season for layering….. Really? I don’t think so. We can layer up in summer as much as we layer up in winter.
Layering isn’t simply piling up on all things long and linear, but rather paying attention to proportions. A good way to start is by having a good handle on basics. And from there one can start playing around with varieties of prints and patterns. At least that’s how I started.

The only reason why I can’t let go of this trend (layering) is because it allows me to make use of my tired staples and remix even the most basic of pieces from my wardrobe. And why not? It is a good way to elevate, update, and retool those forever-wardrobe basics and revamp your everyday look book.

And for hoarders like me…. We are definitely doing good to those unwanted/unused clothes that we have hoarded over the years.

Yes it’s true, my BF and I are hard core online shoppers. With the kind of lifestyle we live in these days it is impossible to take the time out exclusively to go shopping. Online shopping has made it easier for us to buy all our needs right in the comfort of our own home within a click. Internet shopping is an enormously gigantic business today. With the amount of e-stores that has opened over the past years it’s amazing to see how the traditional brick-and-mortar stores have been ditched over online e-stores. And why not!? Clothes, home appliances, gadgets etc, everything can be bought online and have them delivered at home.
Agreed, there are few glitches here and there when it comes to online shopping but still the advantages far outnumbers them.

I Spy Olde-Worlde Street Style

It is evident that my love for vintage style manifests in almost all my get up. 
This time around I took the pledge to rock cotton flared pants from the 70s to alight my lookbook.
We all know fashion is a very predictable cycle, what is now in; it will eventually go out and so on. And it's one of the main reason why I hoard and never part ways with any of my old items or my mums or my aunts. We never know when we will regret it, or better yet, we know we will regret it soon. Only hoarders can comprehend with me. Hoarders anyone?

Initially the wide-legged pants were popular amongst the hippies but soon the popularity grew and it became the mainstream fashion trend in the early 70s. This trend has been royally kept alive by celebrities like Victoria Beckham, The Olsen Twins, Nicole Ritchie and Jennifer Lopez to name a few. Nobody sports the flared pants better than these style icons.

For those who might be unsure about this trend, let me assure you nothing can go wrong if you choose the right wide legged pants according to your body type. I agree, it’s no joke to master the art of wearing wide-leg, but with smart styling and few tricks this cool trend will flatter any body type. In fact for those who are shorter in height like me, this trend achieves that long and lean silhouette, by adding extra length to your body. Also an antidote for those who needs a break from those slim fit jeans and try something else.

Tarini Nirula

It was such a treat to be able to go through (touch and feel) one of a kind and signature bag collections of the talented accessory designer Tarini Nirula. Her collection speaks volumes about her taste in personal style, her love for quirky things and detailing.
Each of her work and piece shows her love for creative art. Having graduated from National Institute of Fashion Technology-India, where she specialized in Fashion and Lifestyle Accessories she had achieved so many milestones yet her modesty makes me respect her even more. It’s rare to find people with great talent, a humble heart and who loves to give back.
But Tarini is amongst those few people who fit the bill.

When I was asked to do collaboration with her I didn’t hesitate a bit. Why? She has one hell of a quirky collection and I just knew her beautifully crafted clutches will fall right in with my everyday look book.

So here’s to Tarini and Archie Comics- a common love we both share – we both grew up reading them but who hasn’t right?
