Fall is here

Hello there,

How would you like the blog to turn into a Carrie Bradshaw-ish Sex and the City column?

Ha! I’m only joking. Though yesterday I was seriously considering the idea. Too much time spent on Sex and the City does that to you. But for now, I’m content playing Agony Aunt to half the world.

Moving on from Carrie Bradshaw, FALL IS HERE. Now if you consider the weather, we, in Chennai, have nothing to be happy about. We have one season all year round-SUMMER. But I can always rejoice the change of fashion. New season, new trends. Sometimes it makes me happy that fashion is so short-lived. After all, change is good..in life and in fashion.

What are your favourite fall trends? I’m so in love with navy blue and emerald green for the season. Also, leather. I just ordered me a leather skirt. Can’t wait to wear it. That’s the worst part of online shopping: the wait.

 And did you see all the pretty statement coats on the runway? How I wish I could wear them! Then I remind myself that I live in Chennai. It’s difficult to layer even with a shirt here, a coat is unthinkable! 
Welcoming fall, at least in fashion, with this green maxi skirt and grey tee. 
Tee: Vero Moda
Skirt: Styldrv for Spring Break
Shoes: Globus

Of Birthdays and Newness

Birthdays have lost its charm. This is either an aged me talking or a grown up me. I’d go with the grown up one! As a kid, birthdays were THE DAY for me. I counted months and days till my next birthday. The presents, cake and dress were all so exciting! Birthday dress shopping was a ritual. I didn’t buy a new dress for the birthday this time. Like always, I did go dress shopping, but only to decide I didn’t need a new one. Birthdays are just days in which you cut cakes now. And that is a MUST!
Also, I hope you noticed some newness on the blog this time. We’re a dot com finally! I couldn’t be happier to get rid of that embarrassing url. Tell me you don’t remember what is was? Impulsive decisions can be the worst thing ever sometimes and sometimes they can be just what you needed. Like the haircut!
Coming to the outfit, layering can be such a saviour! I threw in a denim shirt over the dress to avoid being ogled at. Honestly, I don’t know if it helps. But you DO NOT go out on slingy clothes in Chennai. Sigh! 
Dress/Denim Shirt: Calcutta (don’t remember the store’s name)

On my lips: Rubis Rouge by Chambor

I had to share these. They were hilarious! Pictures from http://www.collegehumor.com/
