Sheer Love!

My love for fine materials has been evident since I was a kid. Georgette, Chiffon, Lace, Crepe Silk - my hands used to first reach for these then and they still do. Add to that the sheerness of most of these materials, the semi-transparency quality that intrigues me yet. My Indian wear collection is majorly sheer and with the sheer mania at its best now, my western wear collection finally looks great too in that department. I find it nice for the hot days that India gives us. Airy yet covered, it serves both purposes.

Recently on one of my online shopping sprees (my sprees have a budget ;) Seriously!) , I picked up this cute Hi-Lo Sheer Top from 99labels.com. While it covered 2 of the most sought after trends at the moment - Sheer + Hi- Lo :), it has also become one of my new favourites!

Mixing Neon and Bling

You guys must have noticed how much I am lusting over NEON yellow these days.. It's over all my social media pages especially the blog(last post with neon is here), facebook page and pinterest! Can't get enough of it *sigh* And now this sale season has added fuel to my lust resulting in a lot more Neon getting added to my closet.

Day before was my bestest and most gorgeous girlfriend's birthday.. Any guesses who? :) Well none other than my darling MOM! Girls can never have anyone more precious as their best friends than their moms! :) 

I decided to dress in my finest for a casual dinner and so out came my ultra feminine and bling radiating Gold maxi tulle skirt, a white chiffon singlet and my latest Neon acquisition - a statement neck-piece from Blur Designs. (I can't get enough of their jewellery!) Mixing Neon and Gold with one basic colour piece in the outfit always works... Atleast for me ;)

White Chiffon Singlet - Singapore
Gold Maxi Tulle Skirt - MAX

Gold crystal flats - Queue up

Are you lusting over Neon too? Which shade? I won't be surprised if you say Yellow ;) cause that's my favourite :) But I'd love to know!

What A Waist! Perfect Shorts For Summer

There is a socio-economic theory - that skirt hemlines go up and down with the economy ;) In times of prosperity, skirts get shorter, such as in the 1920s and early 1930s. Then, when economic hardship sets in, the hemlines get closer to the floor again - look at the 40s and 50s. When the pendulum swings again, up come the hemlines, just like they did in the 1960s. The bottom line (if you’ll pardon the pun) is that if you notice skirts getting shorter in the fashion magazines, then invest everything you’ve got. And if they are getting lower, keep your money safely under the mattress.

So, what does all this mean when high waisted shorts come into the picture, as they are proving to be one of the hit fashion items of the summer? Should we be investing? Well, no, not really. Let’s leave all the financial stuff to the people in boring business suits. They seem to know what they’re doing don’t they? Yeah, right ;)

What it actually means is that if you want to look good this summer, you need to be investing your money in a pair or two. Classic high waisted shorts should come up over your belly button and fasten just above the top of the waist. To complete the look, you need to team them with a tight, tucked-in T-shirt, or maybe a patterned loose blouse, also tucked-in. Sensing a theme here? They look best when they are accentuating your curves, so try not to cover them with anything, as this can disrupt the natural flow of your body shape.

They provide a great summer look and are perfect for a beautiful sunny day. They show off your legs and hips and will look great at summer festivals. Even when it’s a bit muddy and you’re wearing your wellies/gum boots :)

Essentially it’s a slightly different take on the usual summer short-shorts or hot pants. But this time with a slightly retro, 1960s feel thanks to the high waist. They work in lots of materials, but denim is always a winner with summer shorts. You should also try and go for shorts with accessories. Buttons on the high waistband of the shorts look great, especially in symmetrical rows. Patterned shorts, particularly polka dots, work really well with the style too.

So forget about hemlines, let’s get those waistlines up instead. What are you waiting for? Go get them! :)

How to wear Purple pants!

The coloured pants mania has taken over my shopping escapades in such a biggg way that in the last few months I haven't bought any basic shades. It's just been brighttttt colours filling up my racks. While the Pink Promod pants are my favourite, the Purple ones are next on the list!

These pants I wear to work too :) Thanks to working in the media, there are days when I can afford to wear my coloured pants to work, but it seriously gets difficult to control the urges on the days when I can't! *Sigh*

The first time I decided to wear them to work was the day of my team meeting and so I couldn't look too casual. Pairing a black blazer with it wherein I rolled up the sleeves, created an easy yet perfect look for work and for fun! :)

Purple Pants - Spring Break
Grey T-shirt - Giordano
Black Blazer - NEXT
Bag - Aldo
Shoes - Singapore
Neck-piece - Westside

I love these shoes of mine, especially the grey cloth and black trimming look. They convert any outfit from casual to semi-casual in an instant! The neck-piece with its hint of blue just added some more colour to the outfit. These pants always get me loads of compliments.. That's one thing that never changes with it! :)

And we WINKED the nite away!

Do you think twice before wearing a body-con dress?

DON'T! :) Most body-con pieces are actually pretty flattering cause they suck you in thus smoothing out your shape. Reason to stock some body-con dresses into your wardrobe now ladies :)

An impromptu plan made me pull out my favourite body-con in the classic combination of black and white, and to give it a golden twist, I paired it with my pretty antique coin and pearl necklace (last worn here) and some gold bangles. I felt a leopard print clutch would add the wild streak to the outfit and so that too got added! There I was, set for a nite of fun and good music! Sometimes there is a not much you need to be happy :)

Dress - Ri(t)ch Styles
Antique coin and pearl necklace - Chemistry
Bangles - Bandra & Colaba Causeway
Leopard Print Clutch - Steve Madden
Pumps - Shoetree

After ages I went partying with my younger bro. One of his besties was playing that nite at Wink at the Vivanta by Taj and according to me he's one of the best DJs I've ever heard - DJ Anuraag - Check out his FB page here. My bro's other bestie was my personal photographer that nite ;) and together we winked the night away! :)

My awesome younger brother!
The awesome DJ!
The awesome Photographer!

I call these three - The 3 musketeers! Apt! That night too all three were in white shirts! :) My chotus!

Guess what I bought myself in Neon for the monsoons? *think*




No not gumboots! No not a windcheater or raincoat! No not jelly shoes!

Yeah I heard the right answer- Yeah! It's a Neon umbrella in my favouritest shade - Neon Yellow!

And in a shape I always wanted - Square! :) The icing on the cake is the price - INR 390 ($7)

I found this beauty at Hypercity :)

This umbrella is gonna keep my days happy and bright!

Wanna add some neon to your monsoons? Go get one for yourself too! It's available in a bright green and pink as well. But do so before it gets too late and there are none left.. So rush now!

Signing off for the moment, but don't be surprised if you bump into me with my neon umbrella during the monsoons humming Rihanna's song ;)

When the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
