Can't get enough...

Can't get enough of my python nails! Really, I mean I just hate to get in a matchy-matchy situation but it is kind of fun to see the print on my scarf, on my nails too. Equally funny is my behavior while I use my fingers in the daily chores. Extra careful about NCLA wraps to avoid them from getting torn. It's on my nails since more than a week but I just don't want to loose these beauties.

I am wearing ASOS crop top, Tommy Hilfiger rose gold chronograph, Marks & Spencer linen pants and flats from Westside. The python print scarf was gifted by my guy.



I have been observing since sometime that my nails have become my new drawing board. Not being able to sketch for long made me start fiddling with nail art pens and nail polishes (remember the thumb print nail art !). I have seen NCLA's nail wraps being one of the newest things in nail art and I came across this suuper website called Kamali Moon while Goggling these. The rest of the holy-fashionable! stuff crossed my budget except for these wraps. Didn't think twice and clicked on SHOP NOW. I think I scored a record for putting them all in just 2 mins! Can you beat that?!

With the flow

It's so wonderful to know how dainty spaghetti straps and flowy long lengths gets us whenever we plan to start packing for a beach getaway. Damp, sandy beach side, sultry weather rightly arouses the romance, love for the red red wine and Rastafarian tunes. Yes it does happen to me at least!

Although this dress was bought a few months back but the right mood was all that I was waiting for to give this typical beach beauty, a fair justice. The beads around the armholes didn't let me do any accessorizing around the neck or ears. I then thought of adding more character to the bead work itself.  Stacked up my statement rings all together in one hand and I could see the embroidery-statement rings duo talking while I finished dressing up.

Gypsy in me

Aztec print pants: Cotton On
Wooden Ring: Sarojini Nagar
Vintage jacket

As told by a very close aunt of mine, being a kid I was mad about 'dum maaro dum' song. With messy hair sitting at one corner of the drawing room I used to hum it till the time Zeenat's spirit didn't leave my body :D and the interesting part was that the last 'dum' used to get exaggerated a little too long. 

The rebel Zeenat's character used to and still gets me. 

Since the time I understand fashion, I mean since the time I started putting my mom's makeup secretly, I have always left at least one thing unmade whenever I dress up. Not being bothered about my unwaxed arms and legs, several times I have gone partying. Without combing my hair I have gone for interviews. I assumed that me being comfortable and not too bothered about what people think will make me express myself more and so far it has worked! Honestly, this whole thing of being carefree about such things satisfies the gypsy in me. 

Now why I styled it like this...its because of the Aztec in this look that I wore a plain top with it. Since I paired these ASOS woven brogues, the look demanded some layering you see! I topped  the look with this vintage jacket bought from Paharganj, a leather backpack and threw a statement wooden ring and made my hair how wanted it to be. 
Now shall we sing along
Dum maaro dummmm....


Denim never dies

I never invest in any sort of cropped versions of denims. I cannot recall a single time when I bought shorts or capris for myself. But yes I have shamelessly over indulged myself in the denim cheese. Already own 10 pairs of jeans and my heart can any day melt for a would be 11th pair even when I am out for shopping groceries.

The bottom line is that Denims are not meant to be thrown. They reincarnate as the time passes. I mean since the time I exist (which I assume it's not too long), the bell-bottoms got reborn thrice and skinnies made a reappearance twice. Even the not-for-everyone high-waisted ones did a fair business twice during this time.

Here's a couple of oldies in my wardrobe that I wish to talk about.

This one came as bell-bottoms but after a couple of years it's wide bottoms went through a liposuction and the jeans turned into a straight-fit pair. I wish I had a picture of mine wearing these. And after 5 long years of usage when my legs came through a trail of squat and lunge sets then this darling became my boyfriend (jeans). It's one of the veteran stars of my wardrobe.

These came as dark skinnies and did a good job to disguise my thunderous thighs and I used and abused it with every seperate that I can think of. Then I got slim and these got loose. Couldn't part away with the comfort that this pair gave. So I decided to chop them into shorts. Trust me I don't even think of buying shorts.

Now talking about the two in the picture below. The light blue Levis is my guy's. These were rescued when he was about to pass it on to the washer man! Well, I still haven't decided what I will do with them but this oldie is too cool to be given away like that. Isn't it!?
The Lee one is in the process of getting DIYed. Will share in one of the upcoming posts very soon.
