Framed amidst frames...

It feels as if 2013 started just the other day......and now more than half of the year has already passed and we are hurtling towards the end with hectic speed!
I started working on the AW '13 collection of my brand,  Howrah Bridge, yesterday.....and that's when I realised how soon & how suddenly we are already transitioning from Spring-Summer, i.e. florals, shorts, sun-dresses, chilled drinks, shades, sunscreens & beach holidays; towards Autumn-Winter, i.e., layering, hot chocolate, cosy rugs, chunky knits, rugged boots, chilly winds, moisturisers & of course, Christmas!

Well.........for now, Autumn's knocking on the door, waiting to show Monsoons their way out....and I can't wait for Autumn to come as it brings with it my most favorite festival of all times - Durga Puja!!!
But before that, I'm absolutely dying for the 21st of August to come........coz that's the day I'm going on my trip to Bombay, with friends, to chill & have fun at Lakme Fashion Week AW '13!!! A week full of friends, fashion & fun beckons.....and I'll be reporting live from one of the most happening fashion events of the country for all of you guys! So don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for fashionable news & views straight from the ramp!

Meanwhile, this outfit is from the archives - I wore it to a friend's photography exhibition at Birla Academy of Art & Culture. You can see some of his amazing photographs forming perfect backdrops for my outfit! :) see me posing with my camera...for the camera! ;P

This gorgeous portrait of an idol of Goddess Durga was one of my most favorite photographs over there!
I think I'm captivated by the aura the Mother Goddess radiates...

The weather is acting pathetic for the last few weeks..........all rains and mud and slush.....the kind of atmospheric conditions I absolutely loathe! :(
[Except for when I'm at a hilly resort, sitting wrapped up in cosy blankets by the window, sipping mugs of steaming coffee and enjoying a rain-splashed view of green hills all around......but then, that's another story altogether!]

But thoughts of the impending holiday to be spent in one of my dearest cities in the whole world in the midst of all that fashion, style & glamour is keeping the smile right there on my clad-in-newly-bought-red-tint lips (Yes...I've finally plucked up enough nerve to get myself my very first red lipstick! And I'm loving it, to say the least!)!! :D

Have a lazy-crazy Sunday folks!!!
