Goa In Snapshots

In my previous post, I talked of backgrounds and how they add a lot to the drama of a fashion picture or any picture for that matter. Well, speaking of backgrounds, can it get any better than beaches? And speaking of beaches in India, Goa is usually the first word that comes to our minds.

Going forward, I would try to capture some images of the backgrounds as well. You guys have a great weekend.

The Leftovers

I don't have much to share this week. I have been very busy and nothing really comes to my mind at the moment. So I am uploading a few images that I could not use for any posts before.

The Background

These days, I look a lot at the background of images. Backgrounds can be very interesting. As a fashion blogger, I prefer a grey background, they are the best, better than white. But besides highlighting the outfit, they do not really serve much purpose.

Maybe I am growing up. Maybe I am thinking too much. Whatever it is, I have started looking around. In this post, besides the outfit of my sister, it is the background that amazed me. And you won't even guess what it was once. Till a few years back, it had no door and two of our cows lived happily in it. I remember feeding them every evening. I used to stare them, wondering if they found something delicious. 

So that was about this background. What about you? What background do you like while getting your fashion pictures clicked?

Not Thrown Out

We all think of doing some wardrobe cleaning every weekend. And then we procrastinate. And then the next weekend, we procrastinate again. But when we do take the plunge one fine day, we see a huge pile of things lying before us. Some of them, we had almost forgotten, other we no longer need.

Growing up, I used to wait for my elder cousins to clean their wardrobes because that meant I was going to get something. At times I was even ready with a script to talk them into believing that they no longer need a certain blouse or are better off not wearing a certain colour. If any of my cousins is reading this, yes, what I said was a whole bunch of bullshit and none of it was even remotely true :)

I admit I was not that lucky most of the times. But when I did get lucky, the joy was there for everyone to see. It was as if I hit a jackpot or something, as if I got something pretty just because I could talk endlessly, because if I laid my eyes on something I got all Woody Allenish till I got it. Once I got it, I was calm.

The sequined top that I am wearing here, it has a similar story. A friend of friend gave it to my friend during her wardrobe cleaning. And then my friend was almost going to throw it out! But I came just at the right time, and rescued this sequined beauty. Today's it is one of my most treasured possessions.

Have you ever found something like this?

Beauty In Things

Today I stumbled upon the first post I had written for my blog. It has no link to the outfit in this post. But I don't have much to share. So let me just copy paste what I had written:

How many times has the concept of beauty surprised and shocked you? I am sure many times. We find beauty in mystery, in compassion, in words, in feelings, in love. Beauty goes beyond its regular definition, every single day.

We do a lot of things to look beautiful. But when was the last time we FELT beautiful? When was the last time we felt that the air surrounding us was actually serenading us and we were something above ordinary.

Beauty is almost like power. It can pull you through. Even during the worst, when she was hiding and surviving, Anne frank said, “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”

Beauty is how we feel. If we feel beautiful, it reaches our eyes, it shows. I hope you feel beautiful this weekend. Just take some time out to feel it, to know what is true, to realize in case you have forgotten.

If life were a painting
It would be a coffee shop 
And you my dear friend 
Would walk in with a smile
Wearing only the brightest colours
Driving me into another verbal frenzy

The Basics

What is it about the basics that draws so many people, commoners and celebrities, alike? 

According to me, it is about a lot of things. Firstly, who can ever go wrong with blacks and whites and greys and nudes? Secondly, if done right, an outfit made of only basics can look very classy and at times even expensive. Also, you can always use your black tights or white tops with so many things. 

Some say that basics make you look predictable. Maybe, yes, but isn't it good predictable? And red lips go the best with basics. One can also throw on their most eccentric scarves or boots with basics and chances are, it may look great.

So, this outfit is all about basics. Hope you guys are doing great. Have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram if you like reading the blog.
