Flower Power!!

Yes, I do know how this sound: ‘like a cliché’ but hey why mess with the classics. And NO, I am not going back to the era of seventies. I am just exclaiming about the on-going and ever blooming (no pun intended) trend in the fashion industry. And although, we girls may negate it in front of our male counterparts but flowers always hold a special place in the heart of every women.
As I have already pointed it out in a lot of my posts, I am a huge believer of women empowerment. And empowered we have become, indeed! But as they say that ‘everything comes with a price’ and the price we paid here was giving up our femininity in our workplaces.  Truth be told the fierceness required to endure in today’s competitive work culture is like wading through quicksand, the more you try to subdue it the more you get entangled and the fiercer you become. It’s like a vicious circle or a catch 22.
Amid all this the fashion world brings onward the retort to all these woes. They have hand-picked the most delicate age-old trend and entwined it into something anew. And, this IIFA red carpet has already paved for the hottest trend amongst us, which to be fair had already been gaining popularity for a while now. Yes, you guessed it right: FLOWERS.
It’s in everything: flower prints, laced flowers, flowers in hair, flowers in rings, and flowers as accessories, too. You just need to pick your panache. While keeping it unpretentious you may just choose to adorn them in your hair with bandeaux (hairbands) or hairclips in the form of florets. But for a more dazzling effect, try something in floral prints or lace which will not only give you that delicate guise but is quite sensible too in this scorching temperature.
One can choose floral jumpsuits or a pretty skirt trimmed with a little lace or even a dress with flower motif or if you want to go a little traditional then take cue from none other than ‘Bipasha Basu’ and team up your favourite sari with a brand new blouse with floral embroidery.
So, ladies what are you waiting for, lets bloom and rule this season!!! 
Ciao for now!!!!!!

Shine Shrine!!!!

Hi gals!!!! Today, as I sat in front of my telly to catch up on my daily bout of catastrophe a.k.a ‘THE NEWS’’ (and boy oh boy!! Did it live up to its reputation) the thing that held my eye was the blistering temperature rises all over the country. And then as if the news wasn’t ingenuous enough for me, I had to test the waters for myself.
Oh the heat!!!!! The sun was scorching over my head immensely and it felt as if it was bent on taking vengeance for something and trust me, I would have grovelled sorry at every step but I just didn’t know what to ask sorry for. So, by the looks of it, sun has absolutely no intention of plummeting down.
Anywhoo, as I said in my last post, no matter what the weather; we girls need to have a sizzle of our own. And that just got me thinking……… easier said than done; so, let’s just see what we can do about it? Weeeeelllllll, let me see what could be the answer to it……just three sweet little glam words: BLING, BLING, BLING!!!!!!!
Yes, sweethearts just go metal crazy. Accessorize, Embellish and Adorn it in your wardrobe in your own way, as I keep saying. Although all the above words mean the same but hey, you gotta incorporate it in and the best thing is you can easily pair it up with the colour and fabric of your choice. And also team it up with the colour of the season i.e. whites and nudes.
It can be in really trivial techniques like adding some nice shiny chains to your favourite jeans or even gluing up little bits of sequins to those old pair of high heels which you don’t want to toss away. However, for something more audacious one may choose to wear a metallic skirt or a short or even a complete dress. The short dresses are better suited to this season but once again you must choose your own fashion.
So here we go glam goddesses, just go bonkers and let me know how it went too. Ciao!!!!

Ever seen the first snow? If you have then you know what I am talking about when I say: pure as heaven and exotic like hell. They say that each snowflake is unique; each one different from another but equally striking. Isn’t it brilliant how nature works? Anyways, enough about nature let’s talk about some man made delicacy.
While the summer scorches over our beautiful pretty heads it’s our job to, well, be breezy because no matter how sizzling the weather is we need to have a little sizzle of our own.  So this season don’t even reach for your blacks and blues and just be clad in whites and beige and be your very own snowflake.
Not only does the colour counter the heat of the season, but I believe it even reflects a pure vibe all through the body and mind. And why not, since the dawn of age ‘White’ has been a beacon for purity, serenity, demureness and peace.
So, this season just cherry-pick whites in your wardrobe valiantly. There are a loooooooooooot of possibilities thru which you may integrate white in your attire, the safest fashion would be to combine it with black but if you are anything like me you need your daily dose of colour, in that case, just combine it with metallic to bring some bling on. Or for that classic chic look you can combine it with the skinny jeans in colour of your choice and for a little more daring look you can shred them in interesting places, also, of your choice. 
Apart from the usual westerns, white is also a huge knockout in the classic Indian attires like saris, lehengas and suits of course. And the best of all is that you can effortlessly accessorize it with gold or silver and combine it with any N number of colours and prints.
Well, all we girls may not be snowflakes but we are equally exquisite. So, just go bananas and find your own unique way to be one. Ciao!!!
