Flared Skirt+ Leather Jacket

 Hello Everyone,
Its been a while, my apologies! Well today my classes didn't start until 1pm and I was up very early so thought I could take pictures since I realised its been quite some time. Pictures came pretty bad I am afraid since they were self timered. Everyone has their schedule to meet and often I find myself without a cameraman. I tried to do post on this flared skirt months before, but somehow I could never get the ensemble right.Its little too girlie girl.The shape is very voluminous and full, could seriously be unflattering if worn the wrong way, fitting jacket helps and gives a feminine silhouette. I admit I was awkwardly self conscious..I think it takes some getting used to.
I have been definitely guilty of buying things in past that were actually not needed.These items typically end up in my wardrobe, tags in tact and never worn. So, this year I silently vowed that there would be an upgrade in how I dress.Ultimately its about the quality- and that doesn't have to just come from high-end designer stores. I think ever since I started blogging, I have become more quantity oriented, the habit I am trying to rectify. Before all this, I didn't buy too many but I used to buy very good ones when I did. This Leather Jacket was bought when I had good sense of shopping,which is now gone haywire. I think authentic leather Jacket is a must have in a closet, I had tough time finding a pure leather in my price range. Then, I was obsessed to find myself a good leather jacket, I went armani to Lee to Gstar, loved the leather so was their prices. After much search I found this, pure lamb skin and yeah it did cost be a small fortune, but it was the only piece I could find in my budget. Nonetheless, It still remains the most expensive clothing from my collection.I bought it from Saxony, like I have mentioned before Saxony is an australian based designer store, I just love their collection.If you are looking for a pure leather Muubaa is the word. I have never really liked faux leather jackets, it looks and feel tacky until I found the white one, which I will show you next time, something which was little over $100 but it does look like real piece.

 While window shopping, be it online or on my pursuit of retail therapy, I came across these boots a lot. Many stores have this Chloe Susanna inspired boots, I admit it wasn't actually a love at first sight. I got inspired from one of the fashion guru I follow, She wore with such a SWAG that I was like damn I need to get my hands on those.

 This neckpiece, I don't know what took over me but I have them in 3 different colors. I normally don't shop that way, same style in different colors is not my way.But they were bought like 2 years ago so god knows what devil possessed me then. This neck piece resembles bolo tie, it kinda makes me laugh.

 Beanie is my fall and winter essential. I could always get away from having a bad hair day by just wearing em.

Look at me, seriously editing the pictures ( laugh). I will have a very good post this weekend completely based on winter clothing. And like always thank you for dropping by!

Yellow vs Red

Hello Guys,
Its been a while that we have updated our blog and to make up for not being regular we have a special duo post. I actually would love to have a shoot with two models, with third party as a photographer because normally she takes my pictures and vice versa. Today, I had a very frantic day. My laptop has been giving some problem so I had an appointment with apple geniuses, I woke up late and had to run to catch my train, while I was getting ready I checked train timetables and I saw I just had 5 mins, normally if I don't have around 10 mins, I know I ll never make it so I try to catch next one but today I had an appointment so I ran my ass off, I did make it but I have never felt so outta breath in my life. Today, I was meant to run I guess, number of back and forth I did around city was just so tedious.
Coming to the post, I am wearing the iconic yellow blazer from Zara. You must have seen many fashion bloggers wear it, I personally have seen quite a lot myself (here). I saw Pretty Little liar Hanna wear in one of the episodes, so I was like " they do wear cloths from Zara" (laugh) and Kendall Jenner as well. Blazer has a detachable zip and it can be made into petty coat, Multi purpose indeed!

I love my accessories here and heart those shoes. No girl can say no to pointy heels, its easy to warm up to a shoe that instantly slims the leg and lends a very polish to any look, which is why pointed-toe pumps continue to be all time wardrobe essentials.

It has gotten a lot colder, I think right now weather here and back home are just the same. I was just comparing on my phone, not really an uncanny concidence since its spring there and fall for me.
I thought other alternative pairing for this look could be a white pant like the picture below.

 There is no doubt, the varsity trend is hotter than ever. I just love how the sporty feel of the jacket can look sophisticated and cool with the most feminine pieces. They have always been the definition of coolness, I remember watching movie as a kid where the school's hottie will be a football captain and would always wear varsity jackets. Like I have said before, there is a fair chances your dad has it at the back of his closet.As much as I love my Varsity Jacket, its not really practical to wear most of the time.I really struggle to wear this with other cloths and fail every time I try pairing it. But it still remains one of my favourites from my collection.
Denim on denim is one of the latest trend these days.Denim is and always will be every girl's key staple in her wardrobe. Denim can not only be bought in variety of colours,  can achieve variety of looks, from chic to casual to downright glam.

 This shoe and the yellow shoes from above had me really perplexed. I just wanted to buy a pair but I really couldn't decide, I loved em both.They were same prized and both looked equally delicious, in the end I was like heck with this and got both. The price of  red one has really reduced, I don't know why yellow one is taking hell long time to come on sale.

 I love denims from GUESS, because you can get size 24 and 25 in almost all of their designs.My model has lost significant amount of weight, the fact that my jeans fit her is an evidence enough.

       She has become playful and much more comfortable with camera now.
 Anyways guys, hope this made a fun read and you liked our double posts. Sorry about the resolutions of our pictures, It was nearly sunset when we took the pictures and was almost dark so our apologies!
