How to feel and look ‘put-together’ in a jiffy: OOTD

We all have days when we need to get dressed in a jiffy and yet look polished and on days especially nothing worthwhile in terms of clothing comes to mind. On those days, just go basic with your outfit (like a simple dress) and add a bold/bright accessory.

What I’m trying to say is that sometimes all it takes is a bright bag and a bright lipstick (in addition to your basic outfit) to make you look ‘put-together’. Like here, in this photo where I have just worn a simple printed sundress, added a brown belt to give it some definition, and pulled together the entire look by just carrying a bright cherry bag and sporting red lips.

To be honest, I also wore like a really gorgeous pair of sandals (IMO). But had I worn even a pair of basic brown sandals, the outfit would have looked equally good (if not better).





Dress: So old I don’t even remember where it’s from
Bag: Bali
Footwear: Bata
Lipstick: Maybelline lip-stain
Belt: Flea-market

PS: I had worn this outfit back in June!

Breaking Some Fashion Rules: OOTD

I am usually not the one to follow the so called 'fashion-rules', mostly because I like wearing clothes and putting together outfits that tickle my fancy.
So when I was getting dressed for work today, I was in a mood to go all business-y but with a twist. And that twist came in the form of studded black flat sandals. Just by looking at the outfit, one would think of wearing black (at the most beige/nude) pumps with it, since the whole outfit (striped button-up shirt and black trousers) is fairly formal. But considering how hot and humid it has been here (in New Delhi) and also the fact that I can get away with flat sandals at work, I just decided to ditch the shoes and opt for sandals instead.
Honestly, I like the outfit, and the 'unexpected' sandals don't bother me too much. 



Shirt: Van Heusen
Trousers and Bag: Marks & Spencer
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Sandals: Bata

OOTD: What I Wore on a Hot Summer Day

Hi Guys!

I don’t know about you, but I surely think that monsoons have given us a miss this time. I’m talking about all of us who stay in Delhi (and around). I mean it rained like twice?! Well, to be honest, it’s not as hot as it was in June but then again, the humidity has shot up the roof.

Rant over, now back to the “fashion” stuff. As the title says, I wore this outfit on a Hot Summer Day (back in June). Just paired my dark blue skinnies with a bright coral top (borrowed from my sister). The interesting thing about this outfit is the lovely olive green bag which is a gift from the Hubs (got it a couple of years back from Pushkar). For more details, just watch the video. J
