Yo everyone!
I am gonna get straight to the point and not brag about how busy I have been since our firm is involved in 5 projects, there I said It anyways, maybe I did wanna brag, not much just a tad bit (chuckles).
Jokes aside, I am so in love with this kimono, initially I ordered it in grey but they sent me in pink, this is one of few occasions where I got lucky with Sammy –dress. It was a good thing they made a mistake, you could say it was a very fortunate accident, Isn’t SERENDIPITY the very word used to describe this expression? Hence the tittle of this post (wink). Kimono over ripped jeans, over short shorts, dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, kimono compliments with all of em. This Japanese origin kimono trend is one of those trends where western designers have gone looking to the far east for inspiration, but so rarely do such references get taken up with quite so much gusto by the masses.
Call me snob or stupid, but I was one of those delusional stereotypes who felt price defined quality and style. I couldn’t disagree more, fashion really is what you make of what you own. FAST FASHION is a street term they use these days to call this trend. You don’t need me to tell you that between H&M, ASOS, Forever 21 and ZARA, you can pretty much build a wardrobe that looks like it came from any number of high-end labels and boutique.  In Australia there are brands like cotton on, Supree and jayjays which make very cheap and affordable goods, but delusional me convinced myself that I was more quality oriented than quantity, and since I wasn’t a heavy blogger, I hardly bought from those stores only except for few times. This ripped jeans is one of those rare purchases from jay-jays, look how badly I fit into my old jeans (hahaa).
You don’t even have to wear the brands I just mentioned, brands doesn’t define style, you do! Even old clothes can be elevated with the right accessories-none of which have to cost a lot of money. I have found a perfect balance, I am not the old me who would save up and at the end spent just on one handbag, neither am I one of those who needs to buy endless cloths, watches and glasses from thrifts to impress people by my quantity.

Among the brands I can do afford, I find GUESS handbags the best when it comes to quality and designs. This handbag was 9000 baht, I remember comparing it with $100 australian price I paid. seriously, why such a huge difference? granted I bought this on sale like most of my GUESS handbags in my collection. GUESS and Ninewest are always on sale in Australia, so even if I get em shipped till Bhutan, it is still cheaper compared to Guess in Thailand and India.

Manolo Blahnik Inspired heels. I don't know if I inspire people in any ways about the fashion choices but I certainly feel shoefluential ( hahaa). I think I shoefluence quite a few, uncanny coincidences have happened because right after me, I have seen fellow bloggers and few fashion enthusiasts getting exact same. Great minds think alike, maybe? ( hahaa). So, before people name it jealousy, rivalry or other similiar names, I think most fashion bloggers around the world blog on homogenous goods, because we are discussing the "IT" items of the season. I don't know if its by choice or mere coincidence but we bloggers have almost same taste but we maintain our own individualism, we wear the same key items but  style it differently giving our own personal touch.

Monochrome : Work the kimino trend

Hey Everyone!
I actually Planned to post this on sunday but even during my off day I ended up being busy. Excuses aside, have you ever felt that helplessness, when you thought something was there close enough for you to grasp and be snatched right away from you? hahaa..what I am trying to say is, I have been looking forward to my walk in closet for months. As carpenters did our new place, I was tolerant and understanding enough to prioritise kitchen and other furnitures over my closet ,which I knew could wait. Now that house is move-in-ready, carpenters decide to leave for Durga puja and successive pujas that shall follow for almost 2 months when they were about to start with my closet, WTF right? So I ll have a totally empty room attached to my bedroom for next few months, I feel betrayed ( laugh).

Coming back to the post, these photos were taken a while back so I am not sure if this will make an appropriate fall post, as temperature has taken a drastic downfall. I love wearing long kimonos over a shorts, dresses, rompers and even with jeans. Kimonos more like kimo-YES!! trend for me, one of the best transitional pieces from summer-fall. Without changing your summer wardrobe completely, you can just add kimonos over your summer pieces paired with tall boots and booties, voila there is your perfect fall pairing! The bohemian staple has gone full-on mainstream, options available at every price point, you can find a best version that compliments you and your wallet.

"CAN ALWAYS BE MYSELF AROUND YOU" , I am sure everyone has that certain someone with whom you can be yourself. I was so in love with these shoes when I bought em but now they are everywhere plus this has teenage punkass-ness written all over, so I decided to sell em and wear things more my age appropraite ( laugh) .

I love the cut off bib section of this romper, has certain sass and class to this romper. I love cloths from boohoo, this Uk based brand makes the best women clothing in most affordable prices and this look won't be complete without my lace sheer kimono.
Since This whole look has only two colors, I have added monochromatic effects to pictures for more dramatics on black and white, plus these photos had very bad lighting to em.

Bodycon AKA Body Conscious skirt

Hi everyone,
Its Sunday and it’s a blog time, yay!!  How do you like hot and cold weather so far? Seriously, Its really chilly early morning so I come dressed with my jumper and light jackets but as day proceeds my gosh its summer all over again! So this outfit is for those hot autumn days. This look is self-explanatory, I have paired a shoulder off top with a mini skirt in tribal print. There is nothing brainer about the whole look, its simple and chic. For further comfort I have paired it with one of my platform shoes, they would look even better with heels if you were looking for night –out outfit
  .  This bodycon skirt  is figure hugging tight, bodycon stands for "body Conscious"  and hell yeah I am concious of myself whenever I wear tight dresses. I guess tight, figure hugging clothings inspire fear in lot of women. Why? well they suck you right in, your shape is pretty much outlined. You have too much curves or not at all, normally body con tells the whole truth (laugh). Tight bandage dresses are best for night at the club, but for everyday? its best to balance it out, example loose top with tight skirt kinda thing. Decide what ass-et ( pun intended haha)  to flaunt and cover the rest. Plus,in Bhutan I doubt you would get away without getting few stares. 
 These Platform Loafers of Stella McCartney are really comfy and gorgeous. They come in lot of colors and styles, I have a without lace version in Aqua blue, shall blog on those soon. These platform shoes are having quite a fashion moment  with bloggers right now. I don't know about you, but even though the shoe seemed quite okay on its own, I wasn't too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style  bloggers donning theirs pair of Stella McCartney on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely in love. I am glad I am one of the first ones to break this platform shoes to Bhutanese fashion enthusiasts , to have inspired if not all but at least few.
