#ButtOut

#ButtOut
Yes, I stand tall with my six inch heels on. Are you intimidated?
I sometimes like to pair booty shorts with a crop top, because the weather demands it and frankly I think the look is cute.
No, I am definitely not asking for “it”.
I like to dish out an elaborate spread for a dinner party what can I say, I like a little culinary intervention.
I am not in a boot camp for future housewives.
I listen to top 40 pop hits circa 2000, who cares if it makes me look lame.
Maybe I enjoy a night in more than a night out, no I don’t think I am better than you folks who like to party like it’s the roaring twenties.
I strongly believe to be a woman is to be whoever you wish to be.
You can break the gender roles inflicted upon us by society for its convenience, make a change in the world so difficult for women or you can aspire to marry.
Hey, to each her own.
So, if you see a girl doing the walk of shame at 6 o’clock at the morning, if you know this girl who goes to church every Sunday morning religiously, if you are a little more sexually active or if I had my butt out, make sure you let them know it’s best if they #butt out

24.11.14

It's that time of the year again when you get excited and overjoyed to see your loved ones back home. “Family reunion”. Sigh!
I waited almost a year for this. Next week around this time I'll be planning and preparing for Christmas and New Year’s Eve with my family. Yoohoo.
Good meal, good company and endless recreations and discussions!
Watch the sunset, or, if the day is sunny and bright, sit outside and feel its warmth. Sit out by the outdoor fire pit in the evening and watch the night sky. The thought of it itself sounds so surreal.

This past week has been a roller coaster ride. Juggling between shoots, events, sourcing and shopping for everyone was so tiring. I won't deny the fact that I ended up spending more than needed in buying gifts for everyone, burning holes in my saving account. But nothing can compare/replace the smile that it brings on their faces; it just brightens up my spirit. Priceless.

Despite everything I'm dying to play with my nieces. It's one of the many reasons why I wish to be home.

Fall L o v e

Though the weather here in Delhi is turning quite cold, I'm not really sure whether I'm ready for the winter yet. So while I wait for the tights season to take it by storm I've decided to enjoy my few weeks of bare legs wearing these flat boots with my cute lil coat dress.

No Fall or Winter is complete without a great pair of comfy boots. Admit it.
A pair of flat boots is a must. We love any footwear that allow us to take a break from our heels but still manages to look just as chic. These boots were made to wear with your everyday outfits, either you style up or style down with your wardrobe. They're great with everything from flirty dresses to slick trousers. Allow your wardrobe to increase the versatility of your clothes with these boots for a quintessentially Fall feel.

Fall's Must-Have: Scarf

Remember Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2013 Read-To-Wear Collection? The collection overwhelmed the runway with vivid prints that reflect a vibrant atmosphere radiating out wholly from the souvenir headscarves, chandelier earrings and raffia sandals… trends which take us back in time, yet now, reintroduced again with more oomph. 
Ever since then a number of bloggers, fashionistas and who's who of fashion industry are donning the scarves. Personally, the whole craze for scarves started last year when I discovered different ways to style a scarf on youtube. There is no stopping now; I wear them almost every other day.

Werking the Old School Look with FCUK

Last blog post we talked about how to build Basic Classic Wardrobe and how versatile a LBD can be. This post is all about bringing the old school look back and werking it!

I’ve found myself quite fixated on vivid early ‘60s looks of late...
French Connection Autumn-Winter 2014 Collection is definitely drawn and inspired from the ‘60s, delicate porcelain prints inspired by Russian opulence with a hint of an icy blue pop to muted tones.

I've recreated an outfit borrowing bits and pieces from the past looks and styles with a subtle difference.
