Crazy wednesdays

 I love colors and i also love the simplicity of a dress, created these dresses with Indian vintage sarees that is delicate and spectacular fusion of Indian silhouettes with the western top up .

The bandhani saree , stylized by varying lengths of the pallu as pockets and also as the hoodie.

Silhouette in advanced version of Indian short kurta, with a rich mauve sweetheart neckline .  Bold, sumptuous  and inspired by Indian mythological era it stands out and speaks for itself.

So enjoy your  Wednesdays  wearing something different and as crazy as “U”

Collections of a jewelery junkie…

My love for dressing up and helping people to dress up has gone far beyond just the “outfit ” part .

Dressing also meant how well i can accessorize and coming from middle class family where the number of outfits would be limited. I would looking out for fun accessories so i could create different looks with the same outfit.Yes, here is what i have handpicked- some from streets,  some from niche jewellery stores and some were customized according to my personality ( by me of course 🙂 )  .

These came as different pieces, i love to mix and match as it tends to be more “U”.

I wear them with Indian ethnic dresses or with saree .

Some of the them are good, good to be the “statement” pieces so i tend to wear them alone. Just the earrings or just the necklace .

IMG_3462 IMG_3455 I got the pendant ( the temple jewelery )  and strung some beads on to it.

White crystals in silver or gold setting is good to have as they go wonderfully with all the colors ( of outfits )

O oh, i don’t have anything to wear ….!

It had been always easy for me  to select outfits that are fun and colorful. I know, not good because I did not have outfits to go to work in (I was volunteering some of my time in a local school)

A balanced/ workable wardrobe should not only reflect your style but also your lifestyle.

It would be so easy   if we knew what we should buy to have a perfect wardrobe.

Just buying few key items in your wardrobe would give you a lot more options. So start focusing on those categories in your lifestyle that is unrepresented in your wardrobe.

The exercise that each one of my clients has to do when they come to me for image makeovers is – just take paper, pen and maybe a cup of tea and try thisJ, trust me this is going to save lot of time and money.

List down the activities you do in an average – a week, a month and a year, and how often you do it.

Group each activity based on the clothes you wear, like clothes I wear to buy groceries and taking kids to the park are the same.

Don’t consider just the number of hours you are spending on each category, look for the number of days.  Like you have to spent 8 hours at the office from Monday to Friday and then Saturday and Sunday for 1 hour each you go partying. So you need 5 work outfit and 2 outfits to party in a week. Some categories are casual, work, nightlife, gym/jogging, swim, sports, special occasions ….

Hence, ideally your wardrobe should correspond to the distribution of different categories and that is your life style. To make it simpler just see how many outfits you may need in each category in a week. For example

Work = 5 outfits

Party= 2 outfits

Casuals = 4 outfits

Gym = 3 outfits

Make this list for a week, month or a year, but do remember that it also is based on the number of times you would not like to repeat your ‘look’ (not pieces of outfit).

This will give a fair idea on where you should be spending your money.

So does your wardrobe pie equals to your lifestyle pie?
