New from the Old

'Everything I want I have:
Money, notoriety and rivieras.
I even think I found God
In the flash bulbs of the pretty cameras,
Pretty cameras, pretty cameras.
Am I glamorous? Tell me am I glamorous?'

Fashion is more than donning pretty clothes. Fashion is not possessing a closet full of 'in' clothes/accessories/shoes. It is a way of expression. It is expressing yourself, your personality without words. It is creating something new out of the old, about mixing and matching. Your body is your canvas and your clothes are your paint. Paint as you like. 
I don't know how many of you agree, but fashion, I think, is subjective. Who are you or me or anyone else to dictate the rules of fashion..this is fashionable and that is not. Yes, I've whispered into my best friend's ears too "Omg! What is she wearing?" But, really have we ever considered that, that is how she interprets fashion? Why judge her sense of style?
Remember in school how if we were given the same colours, we managed to paint something totally different? That is how it is. We can buy the same clothes but we end up styling it to suit our personalities. Yes yes..there are a few who copy in the literal sense of the term and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it! We have to live with it.
Wear what you want, how ever you want. Don't be a slave to trends and let your outfit speak for you.

The other day while I was playing dress up, I stumbled upon this dress I'd bought for my birthday in 2010. I absolutely love this dress..more so because I partly bought it with a gift voucher I received from a client during my first internship. But, it hasn't been worn enough. So one and a half year later, I wanted to wear the dress differently and this look came to me so easily. I love stripes for summers! I added the belt and the lipstick for some colour.


  1. you look really nice in this dress as skirt version:)
