Leopard Print Retro

By Anupriya DG - November 14, 2010

Another Sunday's come.........& gone............! Oh!! Why do these Sundays rush so??? I mean...com'on! By the time I realise that it's my off day.....it's almost gone! :(

I think it should be law for all organisations to have 5 working days per week.........I mean if I'm slogging my a** off for 5 whole days........shouldn't I be entitled to at least 2 days off? I mean, am just asking for only 28% time off! Is that too much to ask for???

Anyways, I try to manage my Sunday time as best as possible..........what with friends and family all wanting a share of my Sunday, let alone some time off that I need for myself!! Today I had gone for Social Network (the movie) with friends. It was a nice flick.........something 500 million people around the world can actually connect to (that's the supposed no. of Facebook users as of now). Had iced tea & blueberry muffin afterwards & browsed around the mall for a while before heading back home.


I like to make my Sunday dressing bright & cheery! And today, I wanted to do bright sans the prints......hence the solid blocks of colors from top to bottom. The yellow top has a deep neck & I love pairing it up with peeps of contrast colored inners! Also, these brown corduroy cropped trousers are very versatile & very comfy!!



I thought I'll ditch my neckpieces today in favour of this leopard-print scarf.......this scarf is one of my favourite accessories, but unfortunately I don't get to flaunt it as much as I'd like to! I'd picked it up almost 5-6 years back & together with my big, brown shades, it adds the perfect retro touch to my whole Sunday ensemble!!!

Yellow top with pleat details on neck & shoulders: United Colors of Benetton, Kolkata
Turquoise spaghetti top: Pantaloons, Kolkata
Cropped corduroy trousers: Wills Lifestyle, Kolkata



I love animal prints........but never too much of it. I used the li'l bit of printed scarf to add some highlight to the whole solid colors combo...



I dug out this leopard print scarf from my wardrobe after a long time & once I donned it, I just didn't wanna take it off! I fell in love with it all over again.........so please excuse me if you all see it repeated in the near future!! :)
Psst.....also notice similar patterns on the frame of my shades!! :))

Leopard print scarf: Nik-Nish, Kolkata
Shades: H&M, gifted by friend, from Dubai



By now, you guys must have become familiar with my obsession of bangles & how I like mixing & matching different colors & materials with my outfits! Also, this is one of my fav bags that I had picked up from Bangkok........as I had mentioned in an earlier post, I was so besotted by this li'l cane & wood beauty that I picked it up in 5 different colors!!! You can see me carrying the green version of this bag here

Wooden bangles with metal studs: Pantaloons, Kolkata
Fabric bangles: Platinum Mall, Bangkok
Blue wooden bangle: New Market, Kolkata
Cane & wood bag: Indra Market, Bangkok



What better way to jazz up my Sunday outfit than these beads & mirror-work sandals??? It was love at first sight for me when I saw these colorful beauties on the shelf of the shoe store........& I knew my love was reciprocated when I found out that this was the last pair & it was in my size! Two other ladies were eying these chappals eagerly while I tried them on.......ready to pounce on 'em the moment I let go.......but I never gave them a chance!!! ;)

Beads & mirror-work chappals: Inc.5, Kolkata


Hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend.........so that you are now fresh & ready to take on the coming week!!! :))

Have a fabulous week ahead, lovelies!

Till next time,
Ciao,
Polka Princess
