Hey, what are you wearing? Is it Gucci or Versace? 94

Our criteria for which we test one’s civilisation is his/her look, from the dress you are wearing to the accessories you are carrying. Though we have travelled far away from our traditional dresses, yet still we are a slave to some kind of ‘look’ consciousness. Even today the first impression, someone leaves on us, is his/her appearance. We don’t mind getting buried in Gucci, Versace, Tommy, Louis Vuitton, Lavie, Burberry. Ladies notice all the brands even at a condolence( glares, handbag, dress, wedges). More the brands, more the popularity, more the respect. Isn’t it?

Girls are the angels, responsible for the survival of most of the brands. Their huge wardrobes are filled with all brands. In northern India, due to weather change, to maintain costume collection is very difficult. But they are talented enough to manage with few clothes, even in chilly January (poor girls). If they won’t dress up in this age, how will they make their future comfortable? (sorry, I didn’t want to hurt anyone). The dress, that has to wait long or forever for its turn again had reasonably cost about 5,000/-(what a use of money). When I was of this age, whenever my mom had saved  5000/-, she would make a plan to visit a goldsmith.

Boys are boys, simple, having at least three pairs of shades in the dashboard, suitable for each weather. Designer belts, designer shoes, customised undergarments(name embossed with embroidery). To say about clothes, no less than girls. Sandos, hoodies, slim fits, narrow fits, low waist and what not!! My mother used to embroider my father’s name initials on a handkerchief, that was her love and his fashion statement.

All fashion sites are well-visited and one can see a huge increase in delivery boys asking for an address on each corner of the city. Some are delivering on chota hatahis as well.

I remember, we used to get a new dress only on occasions, birthday, Diwali etc. No expense on show off and that’s how we have seen our parents too. No wastage of money just to have ‘Vakhra swag’.

Today, I really wonder how casual the youth is while spending their parent’s hard earned money. No, I am not talking about kids who are dropped to school in Audi and picked up in Merc. I am talking about middle-class kids who just to compete with ‘Audi’ class compel their parents to spend extra unnecessarily. Sometimes, the parents also do it to pamper and show their XL love to their kids.

But is it really necessary?

Is there any check to look into the wastage of money in the name of designers or brands.

Is this race endless, who is the winner?

Are we attracted to brands, or some attraction is left for character or loyalty?

Are our wardrobes flooding with useless apparels?

What we see in a person we meet for the first time?

Looks matter a lot, but give more value to the frame of mind. Don’t go broke trying to look COOL.

Things that you DON’T need in your closet! 1

Today’s post is about closet organization, telling you the about things that you DON’T need in your closet! These tips will help you organize your clothes into things that you actually need. Closet de-cluttering and organization can do so much for your mindset.

                                          De-clutter your closet, de-clutter your life! 

Things that don’t fit you. Are you holding onto things that don’t fit you anymore? And you’re hoping maybe some point in life you may lose some weight and you could fit into them. Ha ha…believe me, you never gonna wear them coz once you lose weight, you will definitely buy the new ones. 😉

Things you haven’t worn for years. If you haven’t even thought about wearing it or even considered it, it’s really a time to think if you really, really need it. Clearly, they aren’t that important. If you haven’t worn them for years or you haven’t even taken the tag off them, it’s a great idea to give to people who would like to wear them and get organized.

Things that are out of style. If you have pieces in your closet that are out of vogue, it’s time to toss them. People will say that trends keep coming back but do you really want to be keeping all those extra baggage in your closet?
Things that are damaged or stained. It’s time to get rid of the things that are damaged, stained or have holes in them, you will never wear them again. So, it’s best to say bye to them now.

Pieces that are painful. If you have clothing items that cause blisters or you just don’t feel comfortable wearing them otherwise, you probably shouldn’t be keeping them. So, pieces that put you in pain physically, why should you keep them?

Things with bad memories. You should definitely be getting rid of pieces that are attached to bad memory. Like if you have pieces that your ex-bf gave you, these are the items you should not be keeping because who wants to get reminded of negative memories? Just throw them away coz everytime you see them in your closet they gonna pull you back for sure.
Things you think you might wear but never do. If you’re keeping things for specific occasions but you know you will never wear them again. Get rid of them right away. After all, who wants to keep useless things?

Alright, guys! That wraps up my today’s post. I really hope they help you de-clutter and organize your closet better.

Must have accessories this season 2

Fashion is the most volatile world! With trends going in and out of fashion each day, it’s kind of hard to keep up with all of them. Even though we want to keep buying new clothes, our wallet doesn’t always allow us to do so.

So, what can you do to keep your closet in vogue always? The solution is to accessorize in the right manner. Here are a few accessories trends that can bring glam to any old outfit.

Belts

Belts have always been in fashion. Pair your belts with your high waist flared jeans to keep yourself in the game. Or go for the metallic buckles to match your pencil skirt at work, while looking professional at the same time. Body shaper belts can be teamed with saris; it’s a great way to hide your unwanted body fat.

Socks

I feel that fashion should be for everyone. And why shouldn’t it be? Wearing a nice pair of socks is something that is by far the easiest and the most inexpensive way to change the entire look of your outfit. Socks are extremely versatile–from parties to work and casual outings to date nights, you can play with socks to create many different looks. Knee-high socks are my favourite though- I love to pair them with minis and leather jackets.

Statement jewellery

Statement jewelleries are always a major head turner. Pick the most hippie and chunky piece of earrings or necklace and add style to your outfit instantly. Or you could try layering necklaces at your next party and grab all the attention. The best part is that you don’t have to buy new ones, just use your old neckpieces and layer them.

Scarves

I absolutely love scarves- they look effortlessly chic. Scarves were in trend during 70s, but I feel they look gorgeous even now. Use a scarf as a necktie to look as stunning as cabin crews or just tie it as a head band to awaken your inner bohemian. Scarves are a great way to look stylish at work.

 

So, there you are. Use these tips and tricks to stay in always without spending a fortune. I hope you enjoyed them and will try them soon to perk up your style quotient.
