Once Upon A Time...

A big big hello to my gorgeous followers!!

I just didn't realize that its been a week since I last posted. I have no track of where the past seven days went by. It seems like the weekend was just yesterday and here we are starting another one..No one's complaining though :):)
There also seems to be no better time for me to pen this post. I say this because as I write to you I hear those magical rain drops lashing the earth, leaving behind majestic aromas of the wet soil. The pleasure of seeing those drops hit the earth relieving it from the harshness of the summer sun is unexplainable. Seeing this sight you can't help but jump to feel the first rain of the season. The first lightning roar followed by the cool gust sweeping our faces, we as kids used to be ready with our paper boats along with all the singing and dancing. The rains came and took our paper boats for ever, with a promise to come back again.
As time rolled on, rains found us inside with out hot tea and fritters enjoying the company of our loved ones. Time shall roll again and we will tell our kids not to go out in rains else they shall catch cold, like our mothers used to tell us. And then, one day we will see our last rain, born from those dark clouds, dripping on our wrinkled skin,and saying, " See, you have changed so much but I haven't." 

These simple pleasures of life are getting lost, when all we are caring of are the things that would one day change. The things that never come with a promise of staying with you forever. There is no bondage to letting that kid in you out and feeling those tantalizing drops. As, it is said that life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away. Let this be one...

My outfit for this post is something I wore last week for dinner with friends. The dinner that evening had some kind of an old-world charm as we dined at one such vintage styled restaurant which had beautiful furniture and paintings. The reason I describe it as vintage is not an apt one, but i call it so because it was well lit by candles and lamps. It had a cobbled pathway leading to the main restaurant. I am sorry for not having pictures of this lovely place, so leaving it on your imagination.
What made the evening even more special was THE RAIN :)

Here's what I wore:

 


This beautifully printed chiffon dress has been designed by me. The dress has a silk belt added to give the dress a structured look. However, this belt is detachable and the dress looks fancy even without it, as it is pleated below the bodice.



Its just a personal thought, rather my habit to keep accessories neutral and simple when I wear dresses. Hence, you see me wearing nude pumps, a few bracelets, my watch and carrying a nude clutch. I also wore a head-band which completed my look for the evening :)






Wearing:
Chiffon Printed Dress:TrimmingsAndLace
Nude pumps: Aldo
Nude Clutch: Thrifted

Bracelets: Aldo
Head-Band: Forever 21
Watch: Giordano
