Switch off your cell phone for a day, clean your wardrobe (donate, sell or recycle rather than stuffing them in your closet saying I have many clothes but I don’t know what to wear) and adopt a 5 piece capsule wardrobe to start with, like how the french do.wardrobe-essentials-page-001

Add a statement jacket on your going out slip dress for a change and see how the heads turn.

Save up and invest in one classic bag like the classic quilted Chanel bag or a Dior or a Chloe and feel the pride (aspiration is healthy)

Save those hard earned bucks which you kept aside for a pair of Solitaire earrings for later i.e when you get into your 50’s. Go for statement jewelry now which you can only pass on to the next gen at later stages (remember we cannot reverse our age)

Why you “can” avoid these two colours this Valentines Day?

Valentines day is around the corner and I am sure, you are all feeling punchy and dazed in deciding THE OUTFIT for the day. Not to worry! we are here help you narrow down that perfect piece. Well, the colours that snap in your mind for the love season are pink and red which you have been flaunting for every Valentines Day till now. Let us just  avoid these   two colours for a change. Yes! thats right, we are exactly asking you to dump the two colours red and pink this V-Day. No! we are not crazy and we are saying that loud.

Instead, go for the spring hues or the pieces belonging to the family of whites or blacks. We have pooled in some of our editor approved looks for you.

Go for a lacy dress in black or white, team it up with statement jacket or a leatherjacket.

I was talking about Rahul Mishra who was the winner of the Prestigious Woolmark prize and keeps on innovating the design process by incorporating traditional Indian techniques into modern outfits…

This Sketch is a part of his collection from PFW which I adore…

Chuck-in; Chuck-out; WISHLISTED; BUY; DONT BUY;

Hello there! Firstly I am so sorry and apologize about me not posting anything for so long :( forgive me for that !  will you?

OK now, we are friends right?

wondering the way I have titled the post? hmm no, I am not out of my mind yet ;-/

MY SHOPPING TRAILS THEY ARE :-) precisely, the way I do my shopping. I am not that kind who gets into a store the moment they put a big SALE sign and i am not an impulsive or a compulsive buyer. I am very particular about what i want and do some research before buying, I mostly check the trends online, pin them first if possible check physically if its available in the nearest store (not all the time but when i am doubtful whether the particular style suits me or not) and then decide what has to be bought and what has to be chucked and what has to be wish-listed, well it also depends on the amount of money I want to spend on shopping at that point of time. YEAH YEAH  it might seem little boring but I am like that, I can’t just buy everything with which i might regret later or overburden my closet. End of the day I should feel confident and happy without any regrets.

IMG_2503 copy

Mostly I am hauled to the upcoming designers or designers who bear the price points into consideration while creating them, of which my favorite is Self-Portrait, Kate Spade, Sam Edelman, Warehouse, Zimmerman…oh the list goes on. I also go with Zara or H&M for some good options. Of-course I do love owning a Valentino, Chanel, Christian Louboutin or a Fendi (for which I save and invest on them).

thisishow

This is how I figure out what I buy, if you see I am quiet evidently got attracted to stripes and I have pinned two such styles one of which is a shirt dress from TOPSHOP for 50€ and the other, an oversized shirt from H&M for 20€, having two similar styles is not soo me, even though they differ a little, so I have gone ahead with H&M shirt also considering that I am already buying a eyelet shirt dress from SELF PORTRAIT for 270£.

DO SHARE YOUR SHOPPING TRAILS WITH ME, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT OR WRITE TO ME @ justcheckedinblog@gmail.com…
