The Sound of Silence

  My natural self is being my chirpy best and it’s needless to say that Silence creeps me out. For me silence was always interpreted as emptiness, a hollowness and fear of the unknown. Silence is a powerful force. By its nature it builds anticipation, and that can be where the stress comes from. But…

Fashion is an Art

A lot of people think fashion is straight-up shallow. Never really is fashion considered as an art form; rarely is clothing a life or death matter; as a concept, fashion is literally superficial — it exists only on the surface. Many a times, a woman who focusses more on fashion is said to be spending…

Anchor- A cliched representation of hope

The labyrinth is so shallow, yet we’re in it so deep. Anchor- A cliched representation of hope. Before your life shifts, it’s going to fall apart first. We are often confronted by situations when a cloud of gloom and despair engulfs us and fear of the unknown has us in its grip. You find yourself…

#beyournakedself

#beyournakedself An initiative by Debasree Deb India’s unfair obsession with fair skin leaves me woefully inadequate. ‘The companionship and camaraderie between ‘Fair’ and ‘Lovely’ have strengthened leaps and bounds over the decades. As wishful as it might sound, I hoped against hope for a time when this prejudice would bite the dust. However, ironically, what…

Your Confidence Defines You

The most important facet to confidence is acceptance. And it’s your confidence that defines you. As I sit down to write this post, I am invariably transported back in time to my early school days. I find myself alone in a classroom of some 50 odd students, engulfed in my books, barely striking a conversation…

The Floral Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses have sporadically risen to a status of a fashion staple. What started in 1960’s as a design to grace the ankles of fashionable people around the world soon rose to be an epidemic in 1970’s with designers such as Dior and YSL leading by example. But the flamboyance of the mini skirts and…

BLACK

“Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real.” — Amy Grant Ever since I started blogging, I have been meaning…

The Enigmatic Denim Shirt

The denim shirt has been a veteran in the fashion arena. It has stuck around for more than a century and has emerged synonymous to casual and comfort dressing. From the first denim jacket conceptualized by Levi Strauss to the multiple iterations and renditions by designers such as Valentino, Proenza , this piece of clothing…

Runway to Reality-Spring/Summer Trends

How many times have we wondered while going through the glossy pages of a Grazia or  a Cosmopolitan , the feasibility of incorporating the runway trends into our daily lives. Let’s be honest, the fashion that is offered to us four times a year can get a tad intimidating. The outfits are beautiful and inspiring…

A rendezvous with The Stitch Story

“Balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we’d feel naked in public without it.” – Carrie Bradshaw Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City taught us quite a few style lessons. I am not sure how many of us understand the gravity of this statement but today…

My Blogging StoryXBlinglane

If you think you can’t do it, then you must do it A pleasantly plump, 5 feet tall, woman of colour would never be an ideal visual as a fashion blogger. Well, there are many who think so. I am glad that I thought differently. 1.2 years ago when I started blogging, busting these preconceived…

To experiment is Fashion

Being able to experiment with your clothes is fashion in its true form. It’s against my principles to not style an outfit in different ways. I strongly believe that as a fashion blogger, it is my responsibility to bring something new to the table. It’s a tad mainstream to wear an outfit the way it…
