Barefoot Shoes!

Barefoot Shoes!

Person 1: These pumps are killing my feet

Person 2: Yeah, mine too. Wish I could walk around in bare feet!

Person 1: You know what would be a cool idea for shoes?

Person 2: What?

Person 1: Pumps that looked like bare feet!!!

Person 2: OMG! That’s so rad. Let’s make them!

Well, I can’t think of any other reason why people would want to buy Celine’s naked feet pumps. Wait, would you?

P.S.: On the bright side, no more chipped toe nails!

The rules of stacking!

The arm party has been on for a while now. But if you still have doubts on how to win the wrist wars. Here’s the word:

Image

  • Which hand? I prefer left. You could do right or even both. If you’re doing both, divide the statement pieces equally.
  • How many? I’d say 3 is company, 4 is a party, and the elbow is your limit.
  • A watch is a must-have! But if you’re worried about the scratching, wear a thrifted one.
  • On mixing, it’s fine to mix metals – gold, silver, bronze, copper, steel all go well together. You could mix beads, charms, bangles and rope too – the more the merrier!
  • Have fun playing – with colours (go monotone or wear it all at once), textures (delicate with edgy) and widths (broad with thin).
  • If you don’t like the jingle-jangle, mix up the order of the elements, like plastic next to metal next to a friendship band next to beads.  
  • I love how the trend transcends across styles. Your wrist reflects you and your outfit.
  • You definitely need a manicure because your hands hog the spotlight!

The one thing I don’t like about this trend is mixing high-end with low-end. I’m afraid mixing makes designer stuff look cheap. But then, that’s just me.

The Infinity Scarf

So I had this skirt that made me look bigger than what I am. I love the print and fabric, but who wants to look bigger? So (argh, so many SOs) I made an infinity scarf. What’s that you ask? Just a scarf you can wear in infinite ways.

Now all I need is a beach holiday to wrap this prettiness around me while riding a Vespa. After I learn to ride one, that is.

Pin it!

I’m obsessing about safety pins lately, thanks to these delightful pictures on the www.

It’s lovely how a tiny pin can create so much drama. And the best part is you have a versatile DIY material that’s right under your nose, begging to be played around with. Twist it, wrap it, string it,– whatever you do, don’t be safe with it!

All blogs post the same stuff!

True story. The world is made of 5 types of fashion bloggers.

  1. She wants to show off her shopping haul. She has a signature pose. She always wanted to be a model. She has a big-ass camera and probably even an obliging boyfriend to shoot her. She is an outfit-of-the-day blogger.
  2. She reads style.com, vogue uk, etc. She spends a lot of time reading other blogs. She thinks she can do it too. She is wannabe blogger.
  3. She loves freebies. She reviews products, experiences, anything and everything she is asked to. She always ends with a disclaimer – all opinions are my own. She is PR’s favourite blogger.
  4. She is a regular at all fashion events. She has candid behind the scene pictures from fashion weeks. She never disses a collection, designer or style. She is a fashion insider who blogs.
  5. She hasn’t really found her voice. She clicks street style. She does DIYs. She covers trends. She does a review or two. She is a stuck-up blogger.

Not that I post anything different on my blog, but I wish more people did!

Smoking hot lips!

The first time I saw these Prada appliqué beauties from the SS ’12 collection, I wanted them.

Image

The next time I saw someone wearing these, I didn’t want them, I needed them.

Image

I love the picture of the smoking woman with the smoking clutch – too much attitude. And the shoes look like you have a ciggie tucked between your toes – too cute. Thank god, they were sold out online!
