Wearing: Black high-waisted skirt with a bow belt by Forever New, leather boots from Zara, black bag from Mango and a thrifted blouse
I am experiencing what everyone describes as a writer’s block. It is partly my computer’s fault for crashing at a very convenient moment but mostly my brain for rummaging into insignificant thoughts. After my senior year commenced this month, it has been a disaster. I have reached a stage where I do not know what I am going to do with my life or what is the purpose of my mere existence. College seems like a far, far nightmare. Everybody waxes eloquence about the importance of college and an organized future and I have even had talks about a backup plan if, perhaps, what I intend to do (more on that later) doesn’t work. I do not even know what I am having for dinner in twenty minutes; let alone what degree I want. Gah, abysmal reality.
Anywho enough with the mid-adolescence crises. Color blocking has been the overhyped trend for the past two years and even got featured in our biannual Delhi fashion week passionately. It has basically spread like a wildfire especially as a necessary street style contingent. Therefore, I thought of experimenting with it, subtly, of course. Neon green pants with a bubble gum top are a grotesque amalgamation. I also wanted to talk about these sweet leather boots. The very purpose of winter season (as well as the season when winter fades that cannot be labeled for a separate season in Delhi), is donning a pair of these lovelies. And how I snagged them is a pretty interesting anecdote. They were lying desolate in a Zara store size of which was gigantic for a normal Deli girl, but ideal for me. I grabbed them, kissed them secretly when I saw at such a steal deal they were. And when they put it in a bag, I jumped in delight that resulted for the Zara security guard to have a good laugh.
Anyhow, I have to scoot and practice trigonometry whilst listening to Jeff Buckley’s epic Grace (album). Serenity.
See you later!
I would probably label this week as the liberation week as we miraculously ended our exams sans nervous breakdown, you guys! So anyhow school granted us some leave before our final year starts come forth April . This is probably week without any stress and pressure however subsequent boredom beckons loudly.
I did an impromptu outfit post just before I left for fashion week on Day 4. I have some amazing excerpts from the rest of the days there. This was the first time I attended the whole five day long event and were probably the most exciting days of my life. The air was infectious filled with talks about what the designer showed, who is donning what and basically an open bar for the media (score!)
Wearing: Blue Zara dress with a mango belt, Zara heels and Mango Leather bag.
I had to rush for the show therefore I couldn’t take more (and better) pictures.
Here are some excerpts from different shows
See you soon!
The fashion week commenced in Delhi yesterday however, I only attended the opening by Masaba for Satya Paul on Day 1 as I conveniently had a psychology final today morning. I attended only the major shows today evening which were Tarun Tahiliani, Alpana and Neeraj, Rishta by Arjun Saluja , Shantanu and Nikhil and Anju Modi. The whole day has been rater hectic with my exam in the morning followed by me strutting madly in heeled-leather boots around the venue in-between shows (I make some amazing life choices you guys). Anyhow, I decided to share some shots from different shows. Since I will be attending the whole event I will put up more interesting and exciting things on the blog for my lovely readers about the shows as well as do some fun posts! Stay updated!

I should be submerged into the copious amount of syllabi lying next to me of the finals come-forth but as usual, I am a mess. Not wanting to touch math for a while, I find solace in the ongoing New York Fashion Week. Alice + Olivia, Thakoon and Marc Jacobs have been my favorites till now, but honestly, I look forward to the street style and backstage trends more than the actual runway show. Primarily, because it offers more insight on the ongoing trend at the other side of the world with their own (often quirky) twist. I followed the couture week rather closely which took place in Paris last month. The major perk of couture as opposed to RTW is the whole exclusivity and the community feeling. The couture is an exclusive club which has been pioneered by some of the greatest known designers (Balmain, Chanel, Valentino) and brings fashion to another platform of art. Meticulously designed gowns, whilst focusing on every detail makes me want to attend a couture week a bit more than RTW. The Indian couture week has also gained a lot of momentum the recent years. Our greatest strength actually lies in self- tailored attires.
The weather has been nice, with spring showering at us. It is possible to wear decent amount of clothes with a blazer- a brief period of time in Delhi as it is closely accompanied with scorching heat. Therefore, I thought I would wear this dress as it expresses everything spring to me. However, I experimented with them with Converse, as I am a person who lives in a pair of her All Stars. I got this bracelet from the recent sales in Promod at a whooping price (score!). The blazer is my sister’s which she left at the back of her closet so I thought I would use it to its full potential. What is more chic than a white shirt, jeans, heels and a blazer? With the right accessories (statement necklace, neon bag or even a fedora), it can be your most coveted outfit.
Catch you on the other side!
