The tussles.....& tassels......of blogging

Something I just read in a fellow blogger's post has set me thinking...........Who/what do I blog for?
For myself? For others?? For time-pass??? For professional reasons????

I thought........and I thought.............and then I thought some more.........and I arrived to the conclusion that I do blog for myself & myself only! Of course, I like expressing myself through my blog & sharing that expression with so many other wonderful souls around the world.........but I'd have blogged anyways even if nobody else cared tuppence about my posts or my outfits.
Since I can remember, I've always liked "dressing up" (and that too, not to show others, but for my own feel-good factor). And through my blog, I've found a way of documenting my various looks, styles & outfits that I, myself, can look back upon at any given point of time for reference, for remembrance or simply for narcissistic pleasure......
I think that's one of the reasons, why I'm not a dedicated blogger (as compared to those who post 3-4 times a week!) or my posts don't get inundated with comments.......but, truly, it doesn't matter much. I blog/post as & when I get the time to (which is the most important criteria for posting nowadays - taking out TIME to do so!)......and also when I feel that I've got snaps of an outfit I'd like to share with you all. I'm under no pressure whatsoever, that I have to put up a certain number of posts within a certain period of time.......and hence, I feel that my blogging is a part of my relaxation process rather than a tedious chore......
Similarly, I visit other blogs & comment on them whenever I get the time & leisure to do so. Of course, I want to read every single post of my lovely fellow bloggers & comment on all of them! But, I don't drive myself to achieve that target just for the sake of it..........I blog-hop & comment only when I have ample time on my hands, so that I can actually, really read the posts, see the pictures & respond in a worthy manner (rather than just writing "nice outfit!" or "great look!")

So, you see, my dear readers & fellow bloggers, I'll keep on blogging on my own whims & fancies, at regular or irregular intervals and I hope that you guys will still be there to read my rants & comment if you like/ let me know if ever you feel I should change the way I blog..........and I'll tell you why I do it the way I do it! :) that I've bored you guys with such a long's a few pictures of a latest outfit. I wore this while going for a designer friend's Fashion Show at a 5-star was so hot that I decided to dress lightly & casually for the event.

Wore my most comfortable pair of pleated pants. I love the beautiful pale pink color of this pair. Rolled up the legs for a casual look. In fact, this is my first take on Pastels this season (and one of the very few, as I don't  possess much of pastels anyway - you guys know what a sucker for bright colors I am!)

This floral blouse is borrowed from my sis..........and I felt jubilant at being able to fit into a Size S!!!

Had had a pedicure that very morning, hence, loved showing off my fuchsia toe-nails through the peep-toe wedges! :)

And here's a tasseled beauty from Howrah Bridge's SS '12 collection.........go check out the other designs NOW!!!


Floral top: Borrowed from sis

  1. I adore this outfit! The blouse is adorable and the pants fit you perfectly :) Your necklace is really pretty too!

  2. you look very cute, nice outfit!!

    Love, Ylenia from *Longuette*

  3. most of the bloggers i have met and conversed with have expressed the same thing about blogging - at the end of the day, its all about self expression!!

    I like your look here, very summery, a serene summery look...and ofcourse i did not miss your necklace..pretty!!!

  4. As a fellow blogger, the most important thing about blogging is just to express yourself in your own way. Share whatever you want to share. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I do hope you're doing well as I do enjoy coming onto "Chappals vs Stilletoes."

  5. Calcutta has gotten so hot these days! I love the florals and the peep toes too!

  6. Cute blouse! =)

  8. A very bright and cheerful outfit!! Love how the colors of the floral top bring the bag and pants together!! Again, very cute outfit!!

  9. Prettinessss! Love the happy spring look. I agree with you and we too blog only for us, I love going back to our archives and see how we wore what. Imagine doing that 20 years from now, which is why I blog to keep a pictorial file of all things I loved at a certain point in my life. The necklace is indeed stunning, you are one talented girl :)

  10. yOU ARE NOT ONLY GORGEOUS, BUT so very wise, my dear friend

  11. I love the necklace against the floral top! And those pants are fantastic.

  12. cute outfit, love your bag and necklace!

  13. I think it's important to sit back and really take the time to reflect on why you blog sometimes... No matter how much you do it or how you do it, a lot of effort goes into blogging and if you feel under pressure to conform to certain things then you may not be doing it for the right reasons. I must say, it sounds like you have a very healthy attitude towards your blog and its place in your life. Good for you :)

  14. Hello miss not so dedicated blogger :)...loved this zara pant and howrah bridge necklace...its so cool and you are looking cute !

  21. Stumbled onto your blog for the first time today.
    Super cute necklace!
    Also, hold those pants close, it's VERY hard to find a fit as great as that!

  22. Those are some neat looking pants. Also liking your photos.. very well done.

    Just came to know that one pair of jeans consumes a whopping 3000 liters of water during its lifetime starting from the cotton production stage to manufacturing process all the way till you throw them away… that’s a lot of water!

  23. I love the look especially your top and the ring! florals are so pretty on you!
