Denim Reflectors









Much like many qualitative and abstract things in life, there are certain fashion trends that seem to grow on you. You know that one song you didn’t like in the beginning but its eventual replays made you love it, similarly there are certain pieces in our closets that make you cringe and ask yourself, “Do I really own this”, albeit you cannot stop styling it in your head and working out occasions where you can possibly wear them. That has pretty much been the case with these trousers. I received these in December last year courtesy Front Row Shop, and they have experienced some massive dressing room sessions. From crisp monotones to acidic neons, from subtle prints to bright ombres they’ve been introduced to many possible combinations, before they clicked well with the good lord denim.
The metallic trend’s got a whole new motto for Spring 2014 with designers (love this and this) pedaling up mirror metallic and iridescent fabrics. Once reserved for accessories and jewellery alone, this space-age inspired, playful candy-wrapper foil trend prompts a fresh sense of escapism to the always colourful spring season.

With the pants finally out of the dressing room, I can’t wait to style them with simple button-down shirts, crop tops and ethereal white kurtas. If you’ve been considering, picking up on this trend but doubted its wearability, I suggest dive in unabashed. Keep your look simple complimenting it with minimal make-up and fuss free hair and trust me it’s the shine you’ll never regret!

On The Street...Verka Girl







Blogging has always enchanted me with new and exciting experiences along the route. A few months back, and I went to the streets to capture the impulse of fashion from ground zero. An uncontrolled environment with no monitored poses and expressions was not only a fresh experience for me, but also made me liberal and free in the posts that followed. This weekend, sharing our experience with you. 

Wearing - 
Top - Forever 21
Skirt - Thrifted (Wore it back here)
Sandals - From a vintage store in Shimla (like these)
Bag - Stradivarius
Necklace - Forever 21
Brooch - Gifted
Bracelets - Assorted

Spring, Prints and Getting Lucky










An overload of pictures explain my happiness of returning with an outfit post. It indeed has been long (remember this). The past two months were a crazy roller-coaster to say the least, albeit the most memorable two months of my life. If you are on my Instagram, you might know but for those who aren't, my sister's wedding last month accounted for all this craziness and the missing posts ofcourse! So, what goes into making a typical Indian wedding...well you got to stay tuned for it!
Spring finally is showing colours in this part of the world, after a string of rainy days. Across fashion circuits, spring undoubtedly is the most loved season. For me it signifies happy dressing. Stockings, bare legs, dresses, blazers, light cardigans all seem to fit the bill. Its the vibe of the weather which makes even the monotone outfits bright and cheery. In this case, the orange satchel did the trick too. Much like crop-tops, my love for black and white too has been on a rise. With this outfit, I kept the overall contrast to a minimum retaining the satchel as the statement piece. A special mention to these velvet pumps which I bought sometime in December at a steal price. Ain't you just lucky when you find heels you can literally run in. Gold accessories and my new-found love for nude lips finished my look. What are you loving this March? Tweet and share with me - @TrimmingsNdLace.
