Style Remix: Monochrome Top

by , in
While you guys have been busy reading between the lines, I was counting days to my favorite time of the year! Yes....Durga Puja is only 38 days away!!! *happy dance*
I have, of course, done a spot of shopping too! Can't wait to wear all the new clothes and have three days (Mahanavami & Mahadashami are on the same day this year!) of unlimited fun with the fiancé, friends & family! :D

In fact, looking forward to the end of September is the only thing keeping me sane right now.
The overflowing Lakme Fashion week updates in all my social media feeds are making me feel suicidal for not being at the centre of all the action! :'(
Twice a year, when the whole Indian fashion industry flocks to Bombay for five weeks of unadulterated fashion, I sit at home, reminiscing about the couple of times that I have been part of the extravaganza. Two times a year, my heart leaves my body to rot in the polluted airs of Kolkata and plants itself firmly in the front row at Bombay's most happening fashion event, leaving the coveted seats only to spend the nights along the embankments on Marine Drive...
This season, as I browse through the Youtube channels and fashion week photos on Facebook & Instagram, I make an oath to my fashion-deprived self that I'll be back there next year, come hell or high tide! 

For now, the countdown to the biggest Bengali festival begins! 



Clockwise from top left: Monochrome + Yellow | Monochrome + Blue | Monochrome + Green | Monochrome + Pink


Today's Style Remix revolves around one of my favorite items of clothing - a top with monochrome stripes. 
If you see the ways I have worn this versatile piece of beauty, you'll understand how well it goes with all sorts of vibrant color blocks! This top worn with any one of my colored pants is my go-to outfit whenever I'm in doubt!! I just add some pops of another color via accessories and I'm good to go! :)

TGIF!
Have a choc-a-bloc weekend ahead! *phew*

What are you guys upto?

Between The Lines

by , in



Too much is happening suddenly.
Work pressure is at its peak, since the festive season is drawing near. (Yes, it's almost time for Goddess Durga to make her annual appearance! #happiness)
Classes for the new semester has started at college [in case you guys missed out on it, I'm a guest faculty at my alma mater, NIFT] and playing 'Teacher' is not as easy as it seems! 
My workers have been doing the bunk at every possible opportunity, sending my blood pressure rocketing sky-high!!! *sigh*

I'm
trying to take each day as it comes....the hours whizz by in a whirlwind of work, worry, wishful thinking & wakefulness...

Getting
up in the morning is the hardest task of the day....coz my eyes refuse to close till they hear the wake up calls of the early birds among the neighbour's trees...

Married
to the World Wide Web.
I think that's what my relationship status on Facebook should read.


 

I wore this on a family evening out, a couple of weeks back. 

The yellow & grey striped fabric was love at first sight! I just had to make myself something out of it....and here I am! :)



What do you guys think of the asymmetric use of the stripes? Interesting, eh? 



Kept the accessories dainty and simple, for a change....and let the fun top do the talking!

Time to head back to a bit of content writing that I'm not very content with, right now! 
Well, a writer has to live with her blocks!! *sigh*

As for the biggest thing that is happening in my life (apart from everything that I ranted about, above)....
well, if you really wanna know, 
just read between the lines! ;)

Cat O' Nine Tales

by , in



Recently I heard somewhere that cats are so fond of their food & comfort, that they never want their owners to stay away from them. Hence, a girl who has too many pet cats never gets married, supposedly because of her cats' evil eye. 

Those of you who have petted cats throughout your growing years and are still a part of a happy, conjugal life right now, may argue your case.

I, for one, am happy to have them cats frolicking on my clothes, rather than all over my house.
I don't wanna take any chances. 
Nobody quite likes snappy, ol' spinsters with cats growing out of their harsh, pulled-back buns, you know! :P






Wore this to an outing to the mall with ze family last weekend. 
Put together an array of summer sorbet shades - the mint, the bubblegum pink and the sunshine yellow look made for each other...eh? <3



I scored this t-shirt on one of my last visits to a local market that boasts of hoards of quirky stuff sourced from Bangkok and Korea. 
This piece was lying unnoticed among a heap of garments that were on clearance sale and I actually picked it up at a throwaway price!! :D
What's more....whoever have seen this fun piece of clothing till now (be it on Instagram or Facebook or live on me, in person) have gone gaga over it and most of them have almost begged me to lend/gift/hand it to them. But I'm not parting with my cats any time soon!  :P

There's been some exciting developments in my life over the last few days. :)
Actually want to shout it out to you guys, but can't really do so right now. All in good time, I guess! *sigh*


Till then, think about those cats and do let me know if you have a case in favor of an argument! ;)


Love,
Anupriya DG
