Hellllllloooooooooooooo people!! Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday! I had a really lazy one...........good breakfast.........lots of TV........checking out my fav blogs............sprucing up my wardrobe........dressing up to go out with family.........dining out.........and finally back home (here I am, sprawled in front of my PC, typing away to glory!)
I have a family friend who stays in London & is currently visiting India with her 2, my mom & sister played host & took them for an outing to the nearby mall for shopping & dinner. It was fun listening to the kids chattering away about whatever interesting & remotely "Indian" caught their wide-open eyes! :)

In case you all don't know, I have this crazy affinity for it on shirts, dresses, sweaters, skirts or even accessories, checks in any form, size & color never fail to attract me.....and my shopaholic soul! After many months of dilemma, deliberation, self-control, market survey & perseverance, I finally saw, liked & bought a shirt-dress in big checks. Both the silhouette & the color combination seemed to be exactly what I was looking for all this while.
So, here's presenting to you another one of my festive buys:

You all have seen my love for shirt-dresses in my earlier posts.........I fell in love with these big checks as soon as I saw them peeping out from beneath a pile of clothes in the shop.......the color combination is also the right mix of bright & balanced. Since, it was a Sunday outing (and I was lazing around most of the day).......I wanted to be in my comfiest best........hence the leggings paired with the loose shirt-dress. These knit leggings are the best picks when comfort is the key for an outfit......they also scrunch up at the bottom for an interesting look.

Also, I had to have bag with a long strap to complete the look. This bag, that looks classy & formal when carried by the short handle (as seen here), can be instantly transformed into casual chic when carried by the long shoulder strap.

Shirt-dress: BK Market, Kolkata
Leggings: Shoppers Stop, Kolkata
Bag: Metro Plaza, Kolkata

I got together little trinkets to make this was a metal chain with a metal buckle as the original pendant..........I used to wear it just like that for some time..........but then, one fine day, I thought to redecorate it with the ribbon & added the final touch with the crochet brooch.

Neckpiece: Self-made

This pair of black formal kitten heels was another of my festive buys. I was looking for a nice pair of black formal heels for quite some time...........this specific style came in various attractive colors, but I had to stick to my budget.....& hence stick to black (since that was what I actually whimsical buys, I'm keeping a strict check on my expenditure)........not that I resent is always beautiful........not to mention, amazingly sexy & so versatile!

Shoes: Emami Shopping Plaza, Kolkata

Do you guys share my love for the squares??? Do lemme know.......

Getting ready for another long week ahead............have a rocking week guys.......

So long,
Polka Princess
