Readers Digest

I get very excited when my readers (turned friends) voluntarily send impeccably styled pictures . The trouble they take to put together an outfit and click pictures is much appreciated here.Latha and Bharthi Naidu are sisters based here in Bangalore . Of late i have been obsessed with yellow after my fascination for the color white kinda phased out. Hence i decided to post this look first in a two part series of the skirt dress.Loved how they styled this ,it has ethnic India written all over .From the wooden bangle to the scrunchy and the chain.

P.S This is Bharthi and Latha is behind the camera.

Don't go near the water

Sankey Tank happens to be one of my favorite spots in the city .A 2 min walk from home, most of my free evenings are spent here on the benches with a  book. Early morning walks here is total bliss.You can spot celebrities , uncomfortable couples trying not to gain attention, joggers,bird watchers,photographers,some like me just out of love for the place.The food hawkers outside sure helps if your here and as aimless as I am. 

P.S The bag is a Neil Dantas creation. Of course in the spirit of Mumbai again.

Malgudi Days

The minute i saw this house it reminded me of the serial Malgudi days. Houses like these are a rare sight these days.So colonial in nature , reminder of a by gone era, Vintage is it ? I wanted to sit there for a while sipping on some chai on the porch.  

Meet some friends for a fun evening and for a change i was clicking the pictures.I loved what Anjali wore so simple yet so chic.She's an architect so it was very natural for us to click here isn't it ? The ring and the bag is from China. The rest is from namma Bengalure.

Want To Wear dresses

While putting up this post the song "You make me wanna wear dresses" by Lisa Germano was playing at the back of my head constantly."It feels so good in there Much much safer in your castle" . Oh yes you make me feel so fragile.Now I cannot stop singing it.

The weather in Bangalore has been perfect for a while now.So got to accessorize with scarfs which was hidden until now ,Does that mean the monsoons are finally here ,oh i hope so .I love the rains ,smell of fresh air ,wet mud ,Masala Chai hmmmm cannot wait .

Lahlah is Here

Chanced upon Esther Fanai A while ago ever since i'm a follower of her unique style. One of my favorite observations about her is the knots, knots eh? yeah she knots long flow-y dresses ,skirts towards the end ,its such a simple and chic way of transforming clothes to incorporate different looks in  one dress/skirt.

My recent trip to Delhi was not very fruitful in terms of shopping,so i had to ask her where she shops in Delhi where she is currently studying. To my utmost surprise she says every single outfit in the following pictures are second hand(Barely 200 bucks =4$)Jaws dropped . Now where oh where do you find such classy second hand clothes ,i don't mind taking a trip right away .

Her inspiration to start a blog she says "After lurking here and there in people's blog for a long time... I just thought why not? I love taking pictures and it was the most natural thing to do. Its a collective contribution...and to be apart of the contribution means a lot."  
Her layering skills are absolutely commendable. She uses arrays of colors in her outfits and loafers are her forte.

I'm waiting for it it to get cold here in Bangalore to be able 
to wear socks n all that.

Jean tote!! where do i buy it?

Her blog has more of her here
