Diwali weekend fashion inspired by India Fashion Week

Indian Fashion Week Collection1 Diwali weekend fashion inspired by India Fashion Week
I’ve always had a certain fascination with Indian fashion, especially in their strong play of colours and masterful applications of embroideries and appliqués. I remember being enchanted by a dress worn by a little girl, so much so I wanted to make one for myself. I don’t know if I’ll ever get down to having one but if I do, I’ll definitely want one with a more contemporary flair. Something similar to some of the collections I’ve spotted from the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Spring Summer 2013. Like this yellow mid-length dress from Virtues by Viral, Ashish & Vikrant. Totally love how its avant-garde design incorporates the rich Indian crafts and textiles.

Getting my fashion mojo back with brand new ankle boots

If you’re a regular here, you might have noticed I haven’t been posting much fashion entries as I used to do over the weekends. Well, I totally lost interest in fashion for awhile. I was wearing sloppy clothes to work and I couldn’t care less. And the reason? Because I hate how my hair looks now. I had such a bad haircut weeks ago and I’m still reeling from the agony of having to live with it. It totally killed my interest to look good. But I might just have got a bit of my fashion mojo back and it’s all thanks to the new pair of ankle boots I just bought during the week.

Leopard chains all out with DVF Ready To Go Printed Tote

Gracie is very intrigued with this Diane von Furstenberg Ready To Go Printed Tote. The moment I got it out of the box, she was sniffing at it non-stop. I’m guessing the leopard chain prints must have roused the animal instinct in her. Well, actually even I couldn’t resist those prints and that’s why I decided to get it even though I promised myself to stay away from tote bags. This is supposed to be a weekend kinda bag but I actually found the prints safe enough for weekdays too. Well, at the least, I haven’t got poached for carrying it around.

I was getting a bit anxious when the shipment for the Whiting & Davis Gattopardo Essential Clutch that I’d ordered was delayed. I needed it for a dinner this weekend and I was definitely not keen to scramble for accessories at the last minute. So when it finally arrived, boy was I glad. But little did I realize that I was in for another battle. This time, it was the battle of the PAW!
