But, does my bindi match my boots?

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. 

Boots: Public Desire

Kurta: A market in Goa

But, can I wear this to work?

I wouldn’t really call myself a rebel in my everyday life but when it comes down to my office style I’m a self proclaimed revolutionist!

Okay that is a little dramatic but, if you ever catch me in the break room, I can assure you I won’t be unvaried.

I’m not the girl to have a “work” & “weekend” wardrobe, but rather believe recycling items in your wardrobe, especially key pieces to create different looks.

In the next coming weeks, you’ll see the Thigh High Series unfold & see how I pair these bad ass boots with three different outfits.

And to answer the question, Yes you can…


Shirt: Olio Stories

Shorts: Topshop

Boots: Public Desire


But, are legs the new cleavage?

The pelvage trend was once a craze, forwarded by influencers & models who don’t stand at a comfy 5″3 & also have no qualms in accidental flashing.

My formula:

Thigh-high splits & a touch of quirk.

Keep it simple & be confident.

And, when it comes to the old age trend of “dressing for your body type,”

I give zero fucks.

Can I borrow your Shirt?


Boyfriend Clothing

[boi-frend kloh-th ing]

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear

2. Just clothes


Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.

 au revoir.

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?

But can you change it up?


[stey – puhl]

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.

But baby isn’t it too cold?

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:

No bra, no problem?

If you look closely on my last two posts you must have noticed, I am not wearing a bra. No problem right?


I’ve been genetically blessed with small boobs & from a young age it has been ingrained to religiously wear a bra. A quick trip to buy milk requires my wallet, keys, will power not buy ice cream & support.

However, going sans bra has been liberating. I feel comfortable, confident, sexy & say a “hell to the yeah” to some cheeky side boob. Be it a ten minute drive to pick up pizza or a dinner I’m embracing bra-free fashion.

We are definitely more than being shamed or sexualised for our bodies.

Thanks, I’ll take two

If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.

And the festive season is here! For those of you who are unaware, it is Diwali on Wednesday & “What is Diwali?” you may ask:

Diwali [deh-wah-li]

– noun

1. The festival of lights; beginning of the new year

*2. Eating a whole box of sweets without being judged

*DISCLAIMER: the above is currently taking place

SO for me Diwali will be rather low key because the only exam I have this semester falls on the Friday, so instead of waving around a few sparkles, I’ll be brushing up on Investment Concept and Applications.

Anyways, because most of you out there might be at work during the day and will be a total stress-head while getting ready, let me save you all that stress and break it down for you with:

The MUST-HAVE accessories for a stress free Diwali:


1. The token gold/sparkly clutch:


Forever New

I believe every Indian women should have a gold clutch in there wardrobe, they are so versatile and pretty much go with every indian outfit. Also, I recommend you find a clutch which is a bit roomy and can fit more than your lipstick and compact. Trust me, I can’t even count how many times I’ve shoved my mobile in my friends bags because my clutch could only fit my keys.

 2. The POP of colour:

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset


There is no other way to make an outfit standout is with a pop of colour. This yellow clutch is perfect for the festive season. Firstly, is a good size, can be converted into a side big and lets be real, who can resist a bright yellow clutch?

3.  The statement piece:

The below clutch was one of the first designer pieces I bought when I started to earn some $$$. I absolutely loved the design  and the wood really creates an interesting texture. The only downfall is, it’s a bit too small for me and I can’t really fit my mobile, lipsticks, vaseline, other random necessities and is very delicate and sensitive to scratches. Meaning, if you’re clumsy like me then be prepared…


1. The one that goes with everything:


These pair of earrings literally go with everything and are definitely my go to piece. They are super light, gold in colour with white beads running through the bottom

2. The one that will complete your outfit:


I received the below as a gift and instantly fell in love with these earrings. I like to keep outfits simple and these earrings will perfectly complete your look. What I like, is that they close at the back so you won’t have to worry about loosing an earring at the end of the night

3. The little one with a BIG impact:


I cannot even begin to express my love for this pair. Perfect for the day time and can easily be transitioned into the evening.

I hope this break down will help you bring in the new year in style.

I wish you and your families a very Happy Diwali and please lets think of our furry friends and make it a noise free Diwali

Until next time…
