Shoe Meets Boot Meets Leg

14 May

I’ve seen my fair share of shoes pretending to be boots, but a friend recently brought this to my attention: shoes pretending to be legs. Yes, legs.

These legs shoes boots by Prada are available here for $1,500, but in my ever so humble opinion I would advise the following people against wearing these:

– people who’ll wear them with jeans/trousers tucked in

– people who’ll wear them with skirts

– people who’s skin tone is darker or lighter than the flesh-toned ‘boots’

– people who would prefer wearing shoes

– people who would prefer wearing boots

– people.

Parsons Creative Assignment

6 May

So I applied to Parsons for their Fashion Design AAS program a couple of months ago and for that, I had to submit a ‘Creative Assigment’.

Instructions: Create a collage that defines the lifestyle of the kind of woman or man for whom you would like to design. Use images taken from magazines and pay attention to colors, textures, and other basic elements.

Here’s what I submitted:

Verdict: I got in!


Basanti… tumhara naam kya hai?

5 May

Today I feel like my name should be Basanti. Let me start from the beginning.

Once upon a time I bought a pair of red skinny jeans. Five years passed and I never wore them. Then last night I embraced the arrival of Spring/Summer 2011 and bought this from Daaman:

My standard go-to white trousers were a bit too white for this so here’s how I wore it:

A Royal Affair – Part II

3 May

I almost forgot to mention this abomination:

That would be Princess Beatrice (of York, I believe) displaying her interesting choice of headgear at the Royal Wedding last week.

I am at a loss for words. I don’t know whether this girl is amazing or ridiculous. I also can’t decide whether her ‘hat’ is amazing or ridiculous.

A Royal Affair

3 May

Can we please talk about Pippa Middleton’s gorgeous dress at the royal wedding? Pippa Middleton’s dress was gorgeous. She was gorgeous.

The dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, the same designer who was responsible for the bride’s wedding gown. Incidentally, Pippa’s outfit featured the same button detail and lace trims as the bride’s ivory dress.

And I want it.

I have a feeling the back of her dress has somehow risen to fame. This might have something to do with it. I kinda liked the front though.

More pictures after the jump.

First Post OF ALL TIME

2 May

No, seriously. This is my first blog post of all time.

I’ve never had a blog before. No tumblr, no twitter, nothing of the sort. I used to have a secret diary when I was 10, it had a lock and everything. But no blog.

I’m not entirely sure what direction I want to take with this. To be honest, I’m still unclear on what the purpose of a blog is, but here’s to hoping I find out as I go along. Suggestions welcome.
