Since past many years Celebrity fashion has been the core of Fashion Industry, right from what they wear to what they eat… Everything becomes a craze for the youth who follows it meticulously. Be It Britney or Lady Gaga.. COPY THEM is the hype for the people who want to stay Stylish..Is that fashion is all about? Lets find out…
Yesterday I was traveling in the most famous Mumbai Local (for those who didnt catch that, mumbai local is the local train plying across the vast city of Mumbai with tons and tons of common public commuting from one corner of the city to other..if you actually see them packed together in the peak hours of local you wont be able to make out one person from other… it is such a scenario) Well Mumbaikars are born to adapt that though… Coming to the point, I could make out various style statements (Individual Style Icons) of these Common Gals who could be hardly called Common.And Mind It, none of it seemed copied or similar.. Each one had her own sense of Style and carried it Elegantly with great confidence.. This made me rethink my earlier statement.. Fashion is not just a Celebrity Fashion.. Fashion is what inside us,, each one of us has his/her own creativity to look their best…NOT Forgetting that “ITS NOT TRENDS THAT MAKES US, ITS WE WHO MAKE TRENDS”… And I decided to put up their Style Statements on my Blog…So here we GO!
Summer is on its best in India, and so is the fashion of skirts. Last week I went to a store to buy one for myself.. but on second thoughts I just felt like taking inspiration from what I saw there and created smthing of my own bundle of un-used clothes that have been stocking up ever since I have started to puton a little weight… I understand this problem is faced by every women in India and abroad.. As our body figures keeps on changing.. The same peice of cloth that used to look marvelous on us, starts looking gaudy and makes us shapeless resulting into tons and tons of unused clothing which you cant savour anymore…. Here are some great tips to bring those clothes back to life and back in shape…
After a frivilous search in my closet this is what I came up with. A once upon a time cute top turned out to be a fat emphasizer shapeless top.. It really looked as if i had delibrately got into someone else’s clothes..
Lately I came across a beautiful white georgette saree of my mom, which I always loved but could never gather up the courage to wear it. The saree has these beautiful pink hand-work judas all over it, but the pattern seems old fashion 😦 So everytime I thought I will drape it, I just couldnt find it proper enough to go out with it….No doubt the saree is adorable but a complete no-no for any function…..
So I worked it up with some nice matching lace , restyled it and came up with beautiful and gorgeous overlap Dress too adorable and lovely to wear.. I am sure my mom will like the transformation,,,
