Treasured junk in my trunk

Every other day i am asked on how to arrange the wardrobe . So instead of just saying i thought to pen it down along with the pictures of my own wardrobe .

Doing it in parts and today it is about how i arrange my jewellery . Staying in an apartment i don’t have the luxury of space . I use the sliding draw under my bed to treasure all the junk 🙂

At a glance –

I like to see all of them at a glance so i leave most of the smaller boxes (  shoe boxes or plastic storage boxes )  without the lids on .

I keep all my rings in  a big box ( have reused a cardboard box ) , i keep cotton balls in between,so they don’t rub against each other .

I keep the precious ( stone /gem) and delicate rings in individual boxes.

Teaming up same size and same color earrings / delicate necklaces  in a box which has small partitions , saves the time that you would  be spending taking them apart  . Oftentimes, my clients claim not to have any accessories to pair with their outfits, yet the truth is that they forget what they DO have.

The chunky beads/pendant and expensive gem/beads are individually packed in velvet or cotton lined boxes.

The fancy necklaces and pendants are individually wrapped and kept in two sections –     1. Colored      2. Gold/Copper/Silver

Not much of bangle person and i like to stack them in a box so i can see them all together.

Watches are wrapped in individual velvet pouches , i leave a bit of strap peeping out of the pouch hence easier to identify them without having to open  each  pouch to find the one you want .

So yes, go ahead arrange your accessories and enjoy wearing them too 🙂

Being “U”


Let your jewellery speak for you by dressing according to your personality. Accessorize yourself with not mere beads and metal but with jewellery that screams out your stories to all those who listen. Speak your own language through all the little things you chose to adorn yourself with.

What your accessories says about your personality

Dramatic – These are the people whom you will see with accessories that are very bold and statement pieces. Some are a piece of art in itself, they are not worried about the brand names

Wearing BAJA-The new you ‘s Peach melba
The neck-piece and the cetrine ring – from streets of Delhi.

Classic elegance –  People who like simple and elegant, just a string of pearls will do .

Their poise and calm demeanor makes them noticeable .

Color coordinated– They are very neat and wear the accessories  that comes in sets and are color coordinated.

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?

Lady in boots – How and what to wear with boots

 

My  favorite time of year? When autumn hits that perfect peak of sunny skies and crisp air, leaves crunch beneath your feet, and all you need is a colorful BAJA dress ,  jackets and yes BOOTS

Tall boots are perfect for fall and winter days. They allow you to get wear out of your lighter dresses and skirts

Fitted boots – Pick a pair that’s fitted around your leg but not so tight that your skin bulges out from the top. There shouldn’t be more than a half inch of space between your leg and your boot. The boots can be pull down a little to give a scrunched up look .

Or, wear a flat style with a mini or skin tight denims . If with mini, think about wearing tights, either way: You’ll look more conservative and pulled together. A straight cut makes them easy to slip in and out of, and they’re perfect if you want to put your jeans inside. They’re a little more casual but still refined. They are not skin fit to accommodate jeans or tights .

The ankle length boots or a ‘shootie”  slip easily under jeans or dress pants and don’t feel restrictive around your legs.

Light weight elf boots pair well with frocks and dresses, giving the  outfits a down-to-earth feel.

Hiking boots generally offer the wearer more support and protection. If you have wobbly ankles, the higher profile of hiking boots supports your foot more.
