Love this delicate earring, which is almost 2 year old. This earring was gifted by SIXERS on my birthday. Well, for those of you confused about the term let me clarify that SIXERS was the name of our gang during the post graduation days. Today 6 of us are in different cities, following our dreams. We do try to keep in touch over mails and texts, but nothing can be compared to the midnight fun we had at hostel.

Coming back to earring, though adorned with stones, the earring is not heavy. You can either pair em up with a LD or with a dark toned silk salwar kameez.

This post is dedicated to my PG friends.

Can you spot the nerdy me?:P

Pure Lust

Monday, March 12, 2012

Thank you dear friend. You have done more than enough damage. I will be dreaming just about you tonight wishing if you were mine. I sound so desperate no?

Saw this snake skin clutch in an online shopping portal called www.pepperfry.com in Sales section. Instant love it was and the cost, Rs. 719 (YES YES!!!!  seven one nine) made the love all the more deep. By then I was back to reality and one look at my dwindling account balance forced me to rethink the whole idea of buying them on an impulse in the first place. Two shades: Brown and Green are available. I didn't notice the sling attached for green clutch , but for the brown one golden link sling is visible.

I am not a clutch person, the chunky clutch looks good in a fashion post , but in reality these clutches can't even hold basic necessities like a mobile or an umbrella. I was eyeing for an envelope clutch for the longest time, but then practicality of the same forces me to rethink on investing on one.

So, how will I wear this?. May be with a plain white flowy top and blue jeans, so that the delish color of the clutch stands out or may be as a part of color blocking ensemble.

If you are unlike me, enjoying a hefty bank balance and can afford to buy a 719 rs worth clutch then, hope on to the link and indulge.

Disclaimer : Im in no way associated with the site aforementioned. Just a crazy shopaholic, trying to bring in some alternate cheap options to lovely fellow bloggers.

Bangalore travelogue

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

So, you must have realized by now that I was away for a few days last week. I packed my bags, and travelled all the to Bengaluru to attend a training/seminar. I never expected to be received with open arms, the city had changed here and there from last time I saw it and it was hard to believe that almost 10 months had passed since I packed my bags and bid adieu to corporate life in Bangalore.

I packed official wears (Kurthas+leggings) and casual wears for evening parties.I picked up flats and heels, took necessary makeup and laptop. The journey to Bengaluru was eventful all thanks to my mom who nearly made me sweat by being late in bringing my laptop to the bus station. The 12 hour torturous journey didn't give me enough room to catch a quick nap as I had to report at office at 8:30. In my worst avatar I landed up for the meeting. Until 5:45 I was waggling my tongue and typing away in the laptop. Before I could go back to the dorm and change, I was greeted by you-know-who at the campus. We went in to select the cards for the wedding, and by that time V was going on ringing the phone. Went in for a dinner wearing my same old boring kurta and returned back to guest house to catch some sleep.

Friday was no good either, I was greeted by Mosterlillaz at work and then before I woke up (Qick nap between all the corporate drama)  it was already time to pack up for the day. Out we went for dinner again and this time wearing the same kurta I wore to office.

Saturday after my work I was quite determined to dress differently for a visit to in laws place. I quickly changed to something really comfy for an evening of food, fun and fight. Meantime I went n for some quick shopping at Central mall belandur, Oasis mall Koramangala and picked up some lovelies.

Fashion News and Trends from Femina.in - Read the Latest Fashion News

Monday, March 5, 2012

I am no good with giving fashion advices and trend alerts so, I decided to bring in some professional help and help you guys with your accessory selection. This is an article that I found in Femina, which according to my own trial and error evolving style holds true.

Fashion News and Trends from Femina.in - Read the Latest Fashion News

When it comes to accessories, big and bold is the way to go. Kavya Kolli gives you the low-down on working this season's statement jewellery pieces

Shagun Nagi, 19, mass media student
Jewellery: Oversized earrings

"These oversized earrings aren't too overpowering, and I can actually wear them often."

The style for you
- If your face is oval-shaped, most styles will suit you.
- If your face is round, avoid anything circular in shape. Choose something that creates the illusion of an angle, such as long earrings in geometric patterns.
- Avoid wearing jewellery around the neck; it will only clash with the earrings.
- Pick a colour from one present in your earrings and choose a dress in the same colour.
- Show off your earrings with a hairstyle that pulls your hair away from your face.

Amrit Sandhu, 23, mass media graduate and model
Jewellery: Statement neckpiece

"I've heard of charm bracelets, but this is the first time I've seen a charm necklace. The watch charms give the necklace such an interesting and unusual look."

The style for you
- A statement neckpiece is something that will grab attention with its distinctive style.
- When wearing any statement piece, keep the rest of your accessories to a bare minimum.
- Choose accessories that reflect your personal style but still have a fun, interesting element.
- Let the neckpiece be the main focus of your outfit. Choose a top or dress that complements the neckpiece and isn't too overwhelming.
- Bib collars are really in, and are guaranteed to transform your ensemble from boring to chic. But if you truly wish to stand out, go for something like a unique charm neckpiece with lots of charms attached. A lace dress will perfectly complement the neckpiece by giving it a vintage, tea party look.

Priyanka Setia, 24, theatre actor and model
Jewellery: Hair ornament, waist chain

"This is a great way to pair an ethnic accessory with a contemporary outfit."

The style for you
- Wearing a hair ornament is tricky, especially if it's a statement piece with an unusual design.
- For starters, the placement of the ornament has to be just right. Such ornaments look best placed on one side, either with a simple ponytail or a bun. If you want to leave your hair open, give the top some height and pin it on the side.
- Glam up your outfit by adding a waist chain to it. You can experiment with ones in antique silver or any other metal.
- Pair the waist chain with high waist pants or skirts. Alternatively, you can wear it with jeans too.
