I cannot classify this as an exclusive trait or habit. Nor can I put my words in a complete cliché. But I do live and dream 'outfits.' They are my best friends in the true sense of the word. From the little girl I was till today...I have spent some very precious moments in my Dressing Room. These moments are my capsules of glory, achievement, innovation, self-expression, self-realization, the pride of being ME and the dream of being SOMEONE the world looks up too (Stepping out of that sparkling black car and waving to a sea of people waiting to catch a glimpse of me and ofcourse wishing to know "Who Am I wearing?"..to be exact :P).

So, today on TrimmingsAndLace I am introducing a new series in the domain of personal style outfits - THE DRESSING ROOM. The Dressing Room shall include fantasy outfits – describe them as pieces wanting a chance to be adorned as ‘outfits’.
Although a long way to go before they are incorporated in my everyday style…but then aren’t DREAMS THE SEEDLINGS OF REALITY??

This is my maiden outfit for THE DRESSING ROOM series. I was very active in dramatics back in High-School. One of my favorite plays, which I got a chance to be a part of was titled 'ANTIGONE'. It was a Greek play on the life of a warrior princess - which by the way was me. This outfit  is my little cheer to that ANTIGONE. And a reminder to self that if things were in my hand I would have worn this and not that super shiny, Satin gown. No wonder school auditoriums never require reflectors.


Electric Blue Top - Thrifted (Delhi)
Maxi Skirt - Tailored

Jhuttis - Thrifted (Chandigarh)
Neck-piece (worn in the hair) - Thrifted

  8. Love the shade of blue and the maxi skirt is so pretty! That broad belt actually adds a little edge! You would've been such a pretty, trendy and smart warrior princess in this outfit! I don't understand why people chose gaudy, old school satin gowns for stage when outfits like this can be equally striking and yet infinitely more elegant!
