Leave that shitty job. Dump your freeloading boyfriend. Book that holiday. Eat carbs. Workout. Get a tattoo. Wear that dress. Read a book.
There’s no right time to do anything. If you want to do something, you should. The repercussions could go wrong but what is important is what you learn from the outcome.

My dear enchiladas this is the last outfit for the thigh high series on the blog. With Spring blossoming in T minus 2 days, I’m sure I’ll have to give these bad boys a rest soon enough & what perfect way to pair them with some good ol’ denims!
On my previous posts, I found myself talking about how I was breaking society norms one boot at a time & I will continue to stand up against trivial issues blown out of proportion by judgmental assholes who I hope are allergic to puppies!
I hope these last few outfits have inspired you to rock your thigh high boots with confidence, kewl & most importantly with conviction

I feel #blessed coming from such a diverse & rich culture & even more lucky to be able to mix my western & Indian clothes. My all time obsession is cotton Kurta’s, I literally pair them with denims, shorts, palazzo pants (current obsession) & better yet thigh high boots. Having such diversity in my wardrobe allows me to experiment with my everyday look & put together pieces which I would previously shy away from.
If you told me two years ago to rock a bindi, jhumkis & a kurta to work, I’d laugh & say “hell to the no boo”!
Ask me the same question today & I’m all like “HELL TO THE YEAH” with remnants of Amla oil in my hair. Today I can say with a certain conviction I’m more comfortable in rocking a kurta with boots or even juttis with jeans.
Check out the hashtag #decoloniseyourwardrobe for more inspiration from some bad ass people!
Note: Still going bra-free.

Kurta: A market in Goa
1. to transform or convert
2. to adapt
Change is fluid, complex & unavoidable. We are constantly changing to bigger & better versions of ourselves, however, the crux of the matter is not how/what/when we change but how we adapt to change.
They key is to grab it by the throat & roll with it. Don’t let change fuck with you, rather, you fuck with change & don’t call them back in the morning.
In the last five years I have changed jobs six times. From fashion start ups to the corporate humdrum I’ve dipped my toe in every pool of possibility thus far. Each role has taught me how to adapt to new people, environments, dress codes & pay checks.
The point is, change is like a t-shirt, over the years designers have tried & tested many ways to change it up. From crops to cutouts we’ve seen every trend under the bright blue sky. And with every new trend comes a little ass slap…

The bomber jacket is more versatile than you think. Dubbed as a wardrobe staple; the bomber jacket can take any look from casual to sport luxe. With a plethora of cuts, fabrics, colours & lengths the bomber is ideal for someone who doesn’t like bulky jackets & heavy coats.
Plus the layering possibilities are endless, it’s the perfect season to layer up long tees, hoodies & crew neck sweaters sans bra.

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear
2. Just clothes
Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.
Women are swapping out pocketless, slim-fit blazers for boxy & fluid clothing. Instead of focusing on wearing man inspired silhouettes, women are directly buying from the mens department.
There’s a movement now where clothes are not segregated by gender but are differentiated by colour, shape & patterns. Its a long road till gender fluid clothes are introduced, but style is universal right?
In my humble opinion, menswear has seen a creative outburst, with more Hommes experimenting with colours, printed shirts & an outrageous sense of street style.
So dames, ditch those “boyfriend” jeans & those who ask:
But, are you wearing mens clothes?
Kurta: Suket Dhir
Pants: Country Road

2. a white t shirt
Cotton, polyester or modal, a white tee is the bread & butter of my wardrobe. With the rise of fast fashion, trends are changing before you can say “is the bum bag making a come back?” ( It is )
However, you’ll find the classic white tee a constant in our wardrobes. The best part is trying to find pairings to re-invent the white tee but what’s even better is being able to mix Indian wear with wardrobe staples.
So baby get those lehengas & sneakers out.
It’s time to change it up.

I am in a forever love affair with dresses & shorts. The crux of the matter is that the weather is changing & most sensible folks will swap out those cheeky bum shorts with jeans, over-sized hoodies & better decisions.
I, not being so much on the sensible side, discovered a simple formula to transition summer stapes to winter wear, without having to answer:
But Baby isn’t it too cold?

Every morning I wake up with a different mindset & mood to the previous day. Some days I wake up feeling authentic & on better days I wake with a sense of bad-assery. Not only does my mood & mindset affect the flow of things but plays a paramount part in my outfit of the day or better knows as #ootd.
You see, on Monday I could be roaming free in a red babydoll dress with leopard flats & heart – shaped studs & by Thursday you would catch me in denim cut-offs, a white shirt with the first two buttons undone.
Some call it balance.
I call it “My Morning Mètier”
