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.
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.
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!
