Cricket haiku…

Standard

I watch cricket
My happiness knows no bounds
As my country wins

What lies beneath… The power of well fitting lingerie.

Standard

When you are young and firm, you can just get away with anything you wear. Young girls don’t even bother with buying expensive lingerie. It is only as you age that gravity plays a huge role in shaping your silhouette. Wearing a well fitted bra can actually make it seem that you have lost pounds. Depending upon the fit,it it is magical how spillovers and double breasting can be avoided. This actually gives the impression that you have lost weight. Wearing the right size of bra means that you have to take care about the band size and the cup size. Wearing a large band size means that the bra won’t fit properly and slide up giving the impression of sagging. Similarly a small cup size means there will be spillover which again gives the impression of excessive flab. With me it looked as if I have apparently lost 2-3 kg. Simply by by switching over to a properly fitted bra. All of a sudden it seemed that I had a nice waistline, which earlier was not showing. because of sagging.

Same for underwear. Wearing one with a very tight elastic will give rise to a muffin top. Even through your clothes you can see the flab. Looks pretty unsightly. So the best way is to wear hipster panties with a broad. not too tight waistband. That way it would hide the flab rather than enhance it.

So before buying your designer clothes, make sure you are are wearing well fitting lingerie.

It will make you look slimmer and more pleasing to the eye.

So,happy shopping.

Color Blocked Kurta

Standard

I always maintain that fashion should be comfortable and it should look good on you. One should not follow trends blindly.

For me and my work environment, I mainly stick to long kurtas.It definitely gives a slimmer silouhette and looks good.

Here I am sharing with you my favorite color blocked kurta,that I bought from a boutique in delhi. I have paired it with palazzos and also a black dupatta.As it is fall, deep colors look very nice.

My all time silver jewellery finishes the look.

When there is a lot of color in your outfit, always go for nude slippers.

This kurta is priced at INR3500.

It always is a good idea to have a capsule wardrobe of basic must haves like nude slippers, black lowers and statement neckpieces . That way, you just have to buy uppers, and then it is easy to mix and match.

LONG KURTA WITH PYJAMAS.

Standard

Hi folks! Now that I have introduced you to the indian wear terminology,I am going to go ahead and show how the demure kurta can be worn.

Here I am wearing a printed pakistani print kurta with black cotton pyjamas. the pyjamas are slightly above ankles and the kurta is quite long.

I wore this while traveling. It is comfortable and looks fresh.Got a lot of compliments for this outfit.

The length of the kurta gives a slimming effect.

A nice wear  for fall.

You can wear heels with this outfit, but I wore flats, as I wanted to travel in comfort. The nude color goes with everything, so I had to pack less.

My silver neckpiece from Jaipur, is an all time favorite of mine.

My whole outfit except the accessories, costed just INR 4500(shoes included)

ENJOY!

Back to Fashion.

Standard

So finally my blogs are sorted. One for fashion and one for my usual and unusual ramblings.I just wish I am that sorted out in my life too.

This time around I am  also going to write about Indian Wear for women. After all, I wear that and fusion clothing most of the times. By fusion I mean something that is not purely ethnic and Indian, but a mix of Indian and western influences both. Before starting let me introduce my fellow bloggers to some terminology we use in our clothes.

1) KURTA. A loose collarless shirt worn by people from South Asia, usually with a salwar, churidars, or pyjama.

A kurta  (also kurti for a shorter version for women) is a traditional item of clothing worn in Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. It is a loose shirt falling either just above or somewhere below the knees of the wearer, and is worn by men. They were traditionally worn with loose-fitting paijama (kurta-paijama), loose-fitting shalwars, semi-tight (loose from the waist to the knees, and tight from the calves to the ankles churidars, or wrapped-around dhotis but are now also worn with jeans.Kurtas are worn both as casual everyday wear and as formal dress.

2) SALWAR.

 A shalwar kameez, also spelled salwar kameez or shalwar qameez, is a traditional dress of SOUTH ASIA. It is worn by men and women in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Shalwar are loose pyjama like trousers.. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic, often with a western-style collar.

3) CHURIDARS.

Churidars or churidar pyjamas ,are tightly fitting trousers worn by both men and women in South Asia. Churidars are a variant of the common salwar pants. Salwars are cut wide at the top and narrow at the ankle. Churidars narrow more quickly, so that contours of the leg are revealed. They are usually cut on the bias, making them naturally stretchy. Stretch is important when pants are closefitting. They are also longer than the leg and sometimes finish with a tightly fitting buttoned cuff at the ankle. The excess length falls into folds and appears like a set of bangles resting on the ankle .

3) DUPATTA.

A dupatta is traditionally worn across both shoulders. However, the dupatta can be worn like a cape around the entire torso. The material for the dupatta varies according to the suit: cotton, Georgette, silk, chiffon, and more. A length of material worn arranged in two folds over the chest and thrown back around the shoulders, typically with a salwar kameez. Can be draped in a number of ways.

FEEL.

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/by-heart/

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

Come on hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I’ve been given

I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don’t understand

I just wanna feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
‘Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins, going to waste

This song ”FEEL” by Robbie Williams is an all time favorite of mine. It voices my mental state, and a real longing for your family and your home. Even the video of this song is dreamy and wonderful. For some strange reason, it reminds me of my father.

ENJOY!
