Melancholy ascends as I keep my dresses away, one by one. Winter is overhead. Mother is stacking tracksuits in my closet. Tears. She's been telling me to dress safe. "Wear tracksuits to college every day. You don't want to fall sick." Are you sending me to war, mother? You know I am not strong enough (physically and mentally) for that. Also, tracksuits are only (perhaps) worn on Mondays in order to mourn the sudden demise of the weekend which rises from the sands like a fallen soldier at the end of every week (duh) but unfortunately, can't hold itself for too long.
I decide that I am not going to live my life in thick, ugly tracksuits with a certain word studded across my butt (even though I know I am going to end up in them). Honestly speaking, I love experimenting. I feel like one should not stick to certain clothes/outfits/styles (ugly tracksuits alert- i don't know how that happened but I see it every winter). Instead, they should experiment with their clothes and other people's also. For example, the uneven jacket in the following outfit is my mum's. Lulz. Oftentimes, I wear my dad's over sized graphic tees with leggings and boots and of course a leather jacket- which should be a staple in all our closets (that's the only reason I look forward to winters). I like to keep my outfits laid back yet presentable. 
Outfit details- Dress: LBD, Jacket: Mother's; Random black leggings; Boots: Zara; Ring: Youshine

Change

It's been a while. What's up? 
So, college started a month ago and I am studying English and French. College has made me productive and pretty damn overconfident. The one thing I am really happy about is the fact that I am not lazy and distracted like I was six months ago. I feel like I wasted 2013 being in a perpetual state of laziness. But now, I know what I gotta do. And I gotta do what I gotta do. 
Moving on to the outfit...
I was saying something to ze mother okay ._.

Wearing: Uneven peplum top- thrifted; Rugged jeans; Leather jacket & Sandals- Zara; Yellow Clutch- Youshine.in; Sunglasses- Asos


I bought the white peplum top from one of the thrift shops in Sarojini. I hadn't been there in a year until last week. Those horrible sheer clothes were enough to make me swear off thrift markets forever. But last week I was on the lookout for clothes for my best friends for our Fresher's so we ended up at the great ol' Sarojini Nagar. The market did have some good stuff, surprisingly. So if you're in the mood to shop- go ahead. Don't forget to take an umbrella though.
I used the leather jacket more like an accessory because it is still very hot and a leather jacket in this bitchass bipolar weather (tropical country, ya'll) is a nightmare. But when you slide into your four year old jeans, glide the zipper up and button them without squeezing your stomach in, you say to yourself, "F***.THE.WEATHER".
Moving on, white sandals/shoes can be worn at any point of the day or night which makes them extremely versatile. So investing in a pair of white shoes/sandals is a good idea all together.
What do you think?

6 Creative Ways of Wearing Headscarves

Headscarves, whether inspired by movie stars from the 60s, ethnic cultures or fashion shows, look chic and cute. There are a number of great ways to style a headscarf depending upon your mood, choice of color, accessories or ways of carrying it. Fashion is all about risking it, taking inspiration and evolving.
From Audrey Hepburn and Hema Malini, the epitome of sophistication, to Sonam Kapoor, Jennifer Lopez and Solange Knowels, the current gen fashion inspirations, have all sported headscarves.
If you’re fashion conscious and follow the trends religiously, the best part about headscarves is that they can never go out of fashion. The different ways of wrapping it makes it a very versatile accessory which can be used in every season. Also, It is one of the best ways to escape bad hair days, protect your hair from the heat and the easiest way to get ready when you don’t have much time to style your hair.
Here are 6 cool and easy ways of wearing a headscarf:
1. For a 1940s pin up look, take a thin scarf which can be tied in a bow on your head, right in the center . You could throw in some big statement earrings, a bright (red) lipstick or cat eyes, depending upon the look you’re going for.


2. For a boho-romantic-gypsy look, wrap it around your head and tie it at the back, leaving it’s ends flowing.

3. Messy hair turbans are a boon on bad hair days. If you’re ever short on time, throw your hair into a messy bun, tie a turban and you’re good to go!
