In Her Shoes

This week, I am thinking about another Carrie, Carrie Bradshaw. If Sex and the City was made in 2015 or 2016, wouldn't Carrie be wearing sneakers or any kind of flats for that matter?

As much as she loved her shoes (even when they pinched her)  which were pretty and expensive and took her messages on her answerphone, Carrie would have not bought them all heeled and laced today. Sarah Jessica Parker's off duty style (In case you follow her on Instagram) suggests she would have carried the flats off really well too.

When I saw the flats trend coming, I did not see a soul happier than me. Being a fashion blogger, there is always a pressure to look a certain way and heels looked kind of important. I was once talking to a fellow blogger who said that no matter how pretty a dress is, somehow everyone made her feel that it looked drab without heels.

Not anymore though. As more and more people are wearing flats with pretty much everything these days, one doesn't need to feel that pressure now. I have four pairs of heels, but I know they will be used only for plays or really odd occasions that demand almost no walking.

Having said all this, I still am kind of jealous of people who can wear heels everyday and still manage to smile all the time.

Her Satchels

When I watch Homeland, one thing strikes me every single time: Carrie Mathison's sling bags, usually black, at times tan, often a bit bigger than usual sling bags. Though her clothes, in every season, seem to have been carefully designed corresponding to the flavour of the episodes, the bags remain similar. 

I think Carrie's sling bags give her a personality, the way she struts around, worrying the least about her bag makes me see her differently. This is in sharp contrast to Allison Carr's bags which are fancier (and of course expensive).

Sling bags are popular everywhere. Perfect for an outing where you actually do not need much to carry. Cotton sling bags have a college like feeling, while leather ones look more sophisticated. Embroidered sling bags are loved by the bohemians from hearts among us.

By the way, did you know that sling bags were originally used for delivering letters?

Some Pink!

When I started this blog, it was never going to be about just me. I had thought of travelling around, taking pictures and posting them everyday. All this was supposed to happen along with regular OOTD posts.

Somehow I have not been able to do everything that I intended to. There have been days when I had no one who could take any picture of mine and there have been days when I didn't go out anywhere. Then there are days when I just won't leave my room, won't move at all. At times I wonder, how do people who struggle with depression, manage to do anything consistently for a long period of time. 

I guess they try, a bit harder than others. And something as cheerful(for me at least) as fashion does need you to be up and about all the time.

Anyway, posting some pictures here. Hope you guys are doing well. You have a great weekend. Please follow me on GFC and Facebook and Instagram, because I am not giving up yet.
