Long distance Friendship...

by , in
OMG!! Has it been ten days already since I've last posted???

Man! How Time flies! 

Ok......so....it's 'coz I'm super-busy with a couple of projects (promise I'll be sharing about 'em with you soon!).........and I hardly have time to take a long breath, let alone blog!

So today........as India celebrates her 63rd Republic Day........I happily sit at home and connect with you guys once again!!! (Thank God for mid-week holidays.......they sooooooooo help us take a breather!)

Me & 2 of my bestest girlfriends have been planning to take a mini-break around the 2nd week of March...you know, have some awesome girl-time together? (We all live in separate cities now due to our different careers....& we are really dying to catch up with each other while taking a break from work) And we are super-confused about where to go! We are contemplating Goa, Pondicherry & even Sri Lanka.........can you guys please suggest some nice place where 3 girls can relax & have fun???
Please...please....please!!!!!!!!! I need as many suggestions or options as I can get!


Also, let me warn you beforehand, that I don't have much of an outfit to share today........unfortunately, I've been too busy to click proper outfit shots......& you have to make do a couple of crappy phone snaps! (Blackberries are so not made to take pictures, I tell you! *rolling eyes*)



Ok...so on this day, I was just hanging out with the guy.........& took these pictures when I was trying on some clothes in a store that was having Sale! :)



Grey sweater dress: Mango
Striped cardi: Tommy Hilfiger
Micro-checkered leggings: Max, Banglore
Peace print scarf: Thrifted
Flat cutout boots: Tresmode


Also, sometimes I'm surprised how li'l things in life can make everything else so worthwhile! 

One of my besties since childhood is now working in California, USA. Her mom had gone to visit her last month & the sweetheart that she is, she has sent me the sweetest li'l gifts with her mom..............needless to say, it just made my day!!! :))
Thanks a bunch, T!!!





Isn't that the prettiest set of bracelets??? 
Well....to tell you the truth, I got sold on the box itself!! <3



Aaaaaaaand the keyring.............that just shows how well she knows me............no? ;)



All the quotes inside this cute li'l booklet feels like they have been written for me only!! 
(Or for that matter, for all my shopaholic soul sistahs!!)


Sigh! Am I not lucky to have such wonderful friends......who make their presence felt so sweetly even when they are far away...... :)
In fact, another one of my good friends, who's in some other city, called me up in the afternoon just to catch up and we ended up chatting for hours, like we've been doing this everyday! 
Well, I say......good friends are one of the most important ingredients of one's existence..........and we should always take time out to appreciate these valuable relationships. 
A nice li'l gift, a phone call or even a frank li'l email goes a long way to show that we remember each other inspite of all the miles separating us...

Ok........so, I'm flying the banner of Friendship a bit high today........thanks for bearing with me! :)

I'm sure most of you guys out there are all geared up for the weekend! Have a great one fellas!!!

Cheers,
Polka Princess

P.S.: A very Happy Republic Day to all my Indian friends & readers out there..........Jai Hind!

P.P.S.: Sponsorships are open for the month of February '12! If interested, pls drop in a mail at anupriyadg@yahoo.com.......and we can get talking!!!

I want florals on my bag too!

by , in
I'm absolutely blissfully rejuvenated..........

I've just spent a really fun day with some super-enthusiastic, entertaining & lovely people (read colleagues) at a picnic arranged by the organisation I work for. We set out early in the morning, spent a beautiful day at a farmhouse by a river, had good food, a liberal dose of fun, games & dancing and came back tired, but refreshed in the evening.
The best part???
I got to spend a great day together with my guy (who works with me......so now you know how it all came into being! ;))!!! 

Aaannnnnnndddd........today, I took THE BAG for its first outing! The bag I was talking about in this post?
For all those who don't have a clue what I'm taking about.........well, THIS BAG was being admired by me for quite some time now, but I've been restraining myself keeping in mind my self-imposed do-not-shop-till-you-absolutely-need-it rule........but one fine day, my guy just surprised me with it! Guess he understood that I actually absolutely needed it! :D



See what I meant when I said I "absolutely needed it"??? :)



Since the picnic spot was by the river & the temperatures have gone down several notches since the past couple of days, I was quite dressed for the cold winds & chilly atmosphere.



And as all my regular readers know...........I love my pops of color!!







Just for the sake of the cold, I had to wear a long-sleeved tee underneath the denim tunic. You can see the pink & grey stripes on the rolled-up sleeves!


Denim tunic: Commercial Street, Bangalore
Black knitted wrap/cape: Max
Grey & pink striped tee(worn underneath): Tommy Hilfiger
Green tights: BK Market, Kolkata
Striped scarf: Borrowed from sister
Floral printed bag: Esbeda, gifted by B
Fruits charms necklace: Vile Parle, Mumbai
Yellow heart ring: Accessorize
Neon green PVC strap watch: Fastrack
Aviators: Aldo Accessories
Boots: Tibetan Market, Bangalore


I have so many plans for the weekend that I don't know how to squeeze 'em all in one day [I'm one of those unlucky ones who get a one-day weekend! :( ]

Guess I'll figure it out till Sunday comes.......

Have a great end-of-the-week, lovelies! :))

Hugs,
Polka Princess

P.S.: I can't seem to get over the bag! Sigh! <3

P.P.S: For the first time in the last 10 months, my guy has taken my pictures for the blog...........the new year sure has many new things up it's sleeves!! ;)

The new year is proving to be quite a promising one................so far.......

Have already carried out my first new year resolution (more on that later......promise!)... :))

And, as they say, morning shows the day...
So, I've a feeling.......and a very good one at that......that I'll be able to fulfill the others too........which is quite a rarity, I tell you!

And of course! The Sale season is here in full swing!!!
All the stores are putting up those tempting big, bright red banners (with those 4 golden letters painted big & BOLD on 'em) outside, so that they can trap poor shopaholic "flies" like us in their web-like traps! Sigh!
Well.........this fly is sure not complaining! ;)

Speaking of shopping, my guy gifted me the prettiest bag today! <3
I've been drooling over it for quite a while now..........but was just resisting my temptations as a part of my new don't-buy-until-and-unless-it's-absolutely-necessary resolution. But the naughty li'l sneak had seen me eyeing the beauty a couple of times and he surprised me with it today!!! Sigh! Now you know why I'm really liking 2012 so far..! :D




Ok...........so, I have not one, but two repeat offenders today!!!
But come winters, and this jacket (which I had worn on Christmas) becomes one of my wardrobe staples..........not to mention, this bag (that you can see for the last 3 posts)...it's such a classic, it goes well with all sorts of outfits!



I always love combining beige with red.....unsurprisingly, I loved how this military inspired jacket looked with my favorite pair of red jeans!!!
I balanced out the colors with my black purse & pumps.



Can you see the hint of leopard print at my neck??? :)



Check out my cute owl ring too!! 




Jacket: Wills Lifestyle
Red jeans: 109 F
Leopard print scarf: Thrifted, Kolkata
Bag: Metro Plaza, Kolkata
Owl ring: Colaba Causeway, Mumbai
Wayfarers: Idee, gifted by friend
Pumps: Aldo



After a long time, I had fun editing these pictures...........what do you think of 'em?

Also, how's the new year treating you all???

Do let me know... :)

Cheers,
Polka Princess

P.S.: This is a backdated outfit from a couple of days after Christmas.......in fact, now that I remember it, it was my mom's birthday that day. :))
