The bag you would never have seen: Street Style 8

Just look at this thing. A face ‘built’ on a bag, now who would have thought of that? I totally believed that this is Rajnikanth sir. But now I think that is not the case. Whom do you think it is? There is a line above the face that says ‘ Do you know me?’ 🙂

Honestly, I don’t like this bag that much. It is not something that I would want to own. I don’t no why, just not something I would want to have. But it’s definitely quirky and different. 🙂 I think it deserves a street style post here. What do you think?

The Quirky Kurta: Street Style 7

Remember my post here about when I went to Janpath? Well, I saw a lady wearing the kurta (Indian tunic) shown below and I think it is a statement in itself. 🙂 Honestly, I have seen many quirky kurtas recently in metro and elsewhere, but I don’t quite like the fact that most of these are made of this thin, polyester-like fabric which, to me, looks a little cheapish but I understand that it is a matter of personal choice (and maybe, someday, I start liking this fabric myself 😛 considering the sheer number of prints thronging the market! ). However, I once remember seeing a woman wearing a kurta with stuff that’s usually written on trucks written all over it and it was not of this polyester-like fabric but of cotton-like fabric. That one looked really beautiful.

Anyway, I digress. Coming back to the kurta featured here, I don’t remember if it looked classy or not, but different (in a good way) it sure is! Have a look and tell me in comments what you think of it. I would  love to know. 🙂

Quirky summer bags: Street Style #6

How often do you come across someone in the metro who are carrying a very cool bag but at the same time, their friend has an equally nice bag. They need to be clicked, no matter how awkward you and your, err, phone camera are. So, here you go (excuse the picture quality and angles please, I don’t know how I can cover up for that :/ ):

She is Ankita and her bag is from Pune. She doesn’t know which store it is from because it is a gift. 🙂 Lovely, ain’t it? I loved it, spacious and stylish. Oh, and, it is a cloth/canvas bag, so, environment-friendly too.

The other girl whom I managed to click in one of the weirdest poses ever on the face of Earth is Ankita’s friend, Vanya. She, by the way, was very sweet. 🙂 Her bag is from Max. Max is available in many cities, so if you want to grab that one, now is the time (Sale season people!).

So, how did you like them? I liked Ankita’s bag more because it is, well, uncommon. 🙂 What about you?

By the way, many such backpack style bags (like Vanya’s) with amazing quirky designs are available on Limeroad.com. No, they are not paying me to write this, I just happened to check their bag collection a few days back and decided that whenever I do this post, I’ll mention their bag collection in case someone is head over heels in love with such kind of bags. 🙂  (Although, I do hope that they read this and sponsor a post here 😀 ).

PS: Do you think I should stop doing street style posts until I get a better camera with me? I anyway do less travel and street markets posts because of a lack of camera. The thing is that street style once missed is missed forever. What do you guys think?

 

 

 

Chic summer loves that are loved all over the world!

I know that the reasons to love summer in India are many, read summer vacations, visiting grandparents, watermelons (enough said!), mangoes and orange bars (although for me it was always the creamy milky ice creams, remember those days when they retailed for like 2 Rs? Or was it only for us small town kids and not for Delhi & other metros?).

Ugh, too many distractions when it comes to summer loves. 😀 Coming back, this post is about style & fashion summer loves that are common throughout the world. Yes, when we discuss what we are loving style-wise or fashion-wise in any season, it mostly refers to trends but then, how many times can one discuss trends? Also, I am not too much into following trends when it comes to style. For me, it has always been about unique and individual style, whether its on-trend or not. Therefore, instead of discussing trendy summer style essentials, I’ll jot down few summer style essentials that are loved all over the world, no matter which country or culture you belong to. Unbelievable? Here you go 😀 :

1. Neons: Did you just say that they are not for everyone? Well, they are! Check out my tee shirts below.

I think mostly everyone carry off these kind of tee shirts. Then, you have the bright colored shorts that you carry off cutely and then, you have the really bright colored salwars (Indian/South Asian pants) that you can carry beautifully, right? Also, there are pop-colored nail paints and bright red lipsticks! There would be one person in every part of the world who is using any of these. 🙂

2. Hair Buns & ponytails: Beautiful, comfortable, chic, cute – which girl said no to any of these?

3. Cute Hair Accessories: Stuff that you can hoard on while shopping but is actually useful to keep hair in place and looks nice too = Big yes in every part of the world 🙂

4. Experimental Lowers: Ok, this is the best picture that I could get for my palazzos but you get the drift. In summers, no matter which country we live in, we hate denims and love either of these, if not all: Palazzo pants, Dhoti pants, salwars, skirts, shorts, straight cotton pants and what not!

5. Pastels & Whites: Now, honestly, I wanted to write mint. But then I realized I would have to write another point for powder blue. Oh, and, I cannot miss writing about whites. And blush pinks? And nudes? Enough exaggeration. The point is that trends may come and trends may go, but the importance of whites and pastel colors like mint, sea green, powder blue, blush pink, peach will never fade. 🙂

So, this was my list. Can you think of other summer favorites that you think are universally loved by girls all over the world? 🙂

PS: This post is written for an interactive campaign called ‘Closet Swap’ organized by Raise.com where they have asked bloggers to write about their wardrobe transition into summer attire. I gave this a little twist and posted about a few things that all summer wardrobes will have. 🙂 Raise.com is a  new marketplace where you can buy discounted gift cards to your favorite brands, and sell your unused gift cards for cash!  From Nordstrom to DSW, they have gift cards to meet all your fashion needs. [They are only in US as of now].

Blue Bows: Street Style #5

Hello everyone 🙂

I am pretty caught up with work, exams and what not! I do waste a lot of time nonetheless :D, but cannot write a post if I am not in the right mood to do it. You know what I mean, right? So, here I am, writing a short (and hopefully nice) post till the time I come up with other posts that I have planned but are comparatively time taking. 🙂

I spotted this girl in the metro wearing this beautiful, satiny blue bow on her hair, she looked really cute with that thing on. I am not a big bows fan, I mean I am pretty neutral about them, I don’t hate them but I don’t love them a lot either. These, however, I found pretty cool.

I am sure a lot of girls like bows in their hair. Maybe you can take a cue from her hairstyle. 🙂 Isn’t her hairstyle easy and fun at the same time? What do you think?

Take care & keep smiling,

Srish 🙂
