We Wore What



Dear Readers,
Here I am with another short post. Winter weather got you down? Are you one of those wishing for little bit of warmth? There I was thinking it was getting tad warmer and temperature takes a drastic downfall. I don’t waste my time wishing what is beyond anybody’s hand, it will get warm when its time to get warm. But staying warm by dressing cozy is all on you.  I want to wrap myself in sweaters, blanket, scarves and all thing winter cozy. Its really hard for me to winterize my outfit, as I feel all those layering seem drab and something not blog-worthy. In this outfit ensemble, I am wearing a long sweater cardigan; they are warm but not crazy warm for our weather.  Would I ever wear my ripped jeans with this sweater in this crazy cold weather? My answer is No.  I am always overly and heavily dressed. People always tell me I dress like I live in Atlantic (laugh).  This outfit ensemble is exclusively for blog. I think I would love to wear something like this when it becomes bit warmer. 
Jeffrey Campbell cromwell, they are chic as they come. These slight slit boots are becoming wardrobe staple and I can't wait to explore and experiment this trend further. Buy these beauties from Karmaloop.

2017 : Cape Addiction



 Dear Readers,
Happy 2017! I hope this new year brings you all the success and happiness of this world, just don't forget to work for it. There is something refreshing about the start of the new year. My inner cynic says its just another year whilst my inner optimist goes crazy at the idea of a whole new blank page to fill up , new mistakes and owning up to em. New year has been great for me, from getting engaged to new car from my brother and I intend to make same amazing start in my work as well as hitting refresh on my blog contents.

Cape trend has never been as big as it was in 2014-2015 , Burberry plaided cape was a huge success and I think I am still hungover that trend, I just love capes. While cozy capes hardly exist but they  sure scream loud and clear as statement piece. They make any outfit ensemble look so chic and stylish. They have become much experimental over the years, I have yet to experiment floor length and military style as I am bit reluctant for obvious reasons. My height would always be my biggest insecurity.  I like coat version more than the poncho, poncho version is more fancy, interpreted in a boho-chic way whereas the coat version is more snug fit, elegant and has a formal vibe all over. I had my fill of poncho style back in university days, so I incline more towards coat style these days yet my model is wearing poncho style and I think they look quite nice. They may not be the warmest piece for winter but they sure are to turn some heads. So, my first ever post of 2017 shall be short and I promise to write more in next update!


 I just adore this hoof aka bent in heels.And its a bonus that mine are in suede. They became quite a trend in 2013 when Christian dior had massive collections of these beautiful pumps. I just have few lookalikes of CD, I shall show em in future posts.

Whacky trend yet worth your while

 Hey Everyone!
I am sorry I have been a little quite lately. I've been a little busy! Not only do I work full time job, I have books to read, 3 dogs to feed, a part time blogger and a girlfriend, and now a cook too (laugh). Our Cook quit so we have been managing on our own until we find the replacement. LOL. There are NOT enough hours in a day Phew!
Coming back to post, this year has been about off shoulders and bell sleeves! The extra-flowy bell sleeve extends well past the wrist in an asymmetrical silhouette and makes dressing up or down too exciting. Bell sleeve is perfect for making fun, bold statement during the cold winer months. Don't you just adore the sleeve on my top? It has this flirty yet dramatic look that I just love. I think they look cool with my button up mini skirt from f21. I can think of many ways to wear this with midi skirts, skinny jeans and shorts. This trend leans towards the dramatic, but its a statement maker, worn with slim separates or styled simply with jeans, bells are guaranteed to up the cool factor in any outfit ensemble. This top is so inspired by the Celine from their 2015 collection. Read here how other bloggers have worn their celine bell sleeve.
 These boots are inspired by Celine Rodeo. They are not the exact replica but quite close. Stupid as it might sound, I bought these as a trial since they were lot cheaper than the wooden heels. Wooden heels being the exact replica. Before I spent hundreds of dollar, I wanted to give this cheaper replica a go,plus this one had a hoof heels, hoof heels being my greatest weakness in heels. This one costed me $30 and they are quite nice. I ll show you wooden heel version in upcoming post.
 I don't think my fashion choices are influenced much by crowd. I choose selective trending pieces in fashion world and talk about those I like . I always feel the need to test-drive a style thats currently trending in the fashion world. I have experimented few times with bell sleeves tops and they have really grown on me. Maybe you guys should test drive as well? Till then take care, stay trendy and be happy.

Denim's Cheat sheet

 Hey Everyone!
I just love the Background where these photos were taken. Since my photographer is relatively new to cameras and she doesn't do well with big ass lens,  most of my pictures have come blurry and out of focus. Truth be told,this new lens is heavy and complicated even for me.
Coming back to the post, this is a very simple everyday outfit. I actually wanted to do post on my buckled cut out bootie with B-Low bri bri belt, unfortunately I couldn't open my accessories drawer because i misplaced my keys. They have a very similar buckle style so I thought they would go well with my ripped jeans. But jokes on me that I couldn't even open the drawer ( hahaa) . Now that fall is almost over and winter comes knocking, we constantly look for outfit ideas that are stylish at the same time warm and comfortable, then there is no better staple than sweaters. Sweaters work great as layering piece, they alone aren't warm enough for place like Bhutan. However, its no secret anything looks good with ripped jeans, ripped jeans with sweater and over jackets is the coolest winter ensemble I know how. The trick to making ripped jeans look pulled together and not too Gun N roses is to pair em with basic staples, like simple sweater, blouse, a great stilettos or wedged sandals, a utility jackets or over coats. Keeping it simple is ripped denim's cheat sheet. If ripped jeans are paired with too fancy tops and jackets, they come sloppy and decidedly inappropriate, thats why most parents shake their heads in disapproval when they see our outfits ( laugh) . I should have added a jacket to this look for more winter appropriate outfit but these pictures were taken weeks ago when days were quite warm.

These glass wedge is a new fascination of mine, I have always assumed they would be over the top heavy for a shoe so never really even considered em, but I couldn't have been more wrong. They are quite light and comfortable.
As mentioned earlier, I meant to  wear this cut out bootie with the B-low bri bri Belt and how I couldn't , I looked ridiculous in that boot with a ripped jeans which is quite parallel and not skinny at all. So, I Improvised  and decided to add little bit of girliness, I wore these glass wedges and I think they turned out alright.  Anyway Guys have a good week and I shall see you soon with new post.

The Cropped Kick Flare Jeans


Hey Everyone!
I am assuming most Bhutanese visited various lhakhangs and avoided eating meat all together. As growing up I found not eating meat during dhizangs quite hypocritical. Now that I am older, I realise at least in the name of Dhizang, people avoid meat atleast for a day.
Back to the post, if there is one denim trend you should try this fall, its hand down the cropped wide leg jeans. This culottes style jeans are this season's must have, since your skinny jeans aren't going nowhere, why don't you give this trend a try? I personally love this trend and I can't wait to show you more similar pieces in Black and darker Blue. 'Kick Flare' trend as they are so referred have jeans in so many widths that they give you a customised feeling, for example there is a cropped bootcut, slightly wider cropped straight leg ( like mine) , flare that starts from knee, wide leg that hits mid calf or ankle. It feels like there is a different length and style  for everyone , atleast one of these would is sure to fit you to your taste. Wheather you chose to pair em with sneakers, heels or flats, they are jeans that are a great addition to your collection and are sure to become your staple piece that you would want to wear from  time to time to spruce your daily look. If you are in a seriously cold climate, try it with classic straight jackets, sweaters, cozy scarves and ankle boots.

These calfskin translucent heel boots are everywhere, they are very hard to ignore even if you wanted. As initially inspired by dior, these lookalikes from other brands are not bad at all. Mine are from Public Desire, they make one of the best designer inspired shoes in most affordable prices. You should definitely check their website. I ll try to bring few more fall outfits before Fall is really over, till then take care and work hard.

Anti-fit yet so fit

Hey Everyone!
I have drafted this post since last week and today I just felt like posting it. Nothing says fall louder than shimmying into a variety of cozy pieces, and there is nothing cozier or cooler piece than oversized sweater and sweatshirts, I like to call em anti-fit yet so fit trend ( make sense? ) . Anti-fit trend has  been embraced gradually, as we do know great fit has been-and forever will be- the key to impeccable style. Having said that, anti-fit trend is having its moment in fashion world right now. Its challenging the style status quo and gradually making a case for the anti-fit. Ever since celebrities have started incorporating them in their casual outfits, its hard to ignore the trend and they are proving to be quite convincing.
Just remember few things while trying this trend and you are good to go.
~ Keep it strictly casual- Don't try to incorporate oversize into formal or smart casual ensemble.
~ Don't oversize everything- With oversize top, remember to pair with slim and skinny bottom.
~ keep it Simple - Don't try too much layering with oversize trend
~ Wear em with Confidence - forget about all dos and donts above and wear whatever you like  with confidence and there is no trend you cannot carry it off. Normally if you are second guessing your wardrobe choice , you will be constantly pulling the hemline up so that top doesn't look as long and bulky, then this absolutely isn't for you--like I said confidence is the key.
Few of us having grown up with brothers, those of us have always had a penchant for men cloths. As grown up, brothers were substituted by boyfriends and hence the birth of Boyfriend trends.
Once we gave boyfriend jeans and Blazer a try, we were hooked. From there on, everything went down the hill few sizes higher, and even a girliest of girls couldn't resist the trend. I have worn a dress beneath my sweat but it sortof looks like a skater skirt. Wearing leggings and sneakers with this looks is the most chic as casual outfit can get. I really love oversize casual outfits Kiley Jenner and Hailey Baldwin wear.
 I hope to bring you all few more fall trends before winter comes knocking on our doors, till then ciao people and keep warm.

Fall Staple : Micro Pleated Skirts


Hey Everyone!
Its been so long without a blog post, so here I am with my very first fall post. I know there is just a month left before we face the cold wrath of winter. Falls in Bhutan are actually quite cold, its just that winters are colder. Some countries don't experience as much cold during winter as we do during our fall..well its all geography, can't really blame or hate the place.
Lets get back to the fashion! This time I want to show you what and how to wear a pleated skirt. This skirt is very functional and eye-catchy too, and the best thing is they are all season piece. The ensemble I have is ideal for summer and not quite suitable for cold Bhutan but don't you worry! just add a leather jacket, a legging underneath and finish the look with a boot and viola there is your fall outfit. I skipped those ideas because I see most bloggers do that and I wanted to try something different, not significantly different yet add a little bit of edge to this look.I bought this pleated skirt from Mango Bangkok, I think I want more in my collection but probably shall get the cheaper ones.  I added this peplum belt because they rarely go with any other outfits and it felt right with this tight bodysuit top from Club L. Do check out Club L collection from ASOS, prices are reasonable, nice quality and impeccable designs.

I have finished this look with these beautiful heel ( replica) of Gianvito Rossi. So, is this look a yay or Nay for you?  Keeping this post very short and hope to update very soon!
