In work mode

When I’m at work, and this involves interviewing gorgeousness like Tisca Chopra, I prefer to keep it non fuss. This means jeans and a blazer, or a shirt most times, paired with comfortable practical shoes.

For this shoot for an episode of SheThePeople.TV’s BOLD, I opted for a simple white cotton cutwork blazer from Banana Republic with my old, old, old, perhaps prehistoric pair of GAP jeans, paired with simple T-strapped wedge heels from Bata. Yes, Bata is one of my all time favourites for solid, durable shoes that are comfortable and last forever and ever and ever. This pair I find I end up wearing everywhere when I have a long work day in front of me, and know I will be on my feet forever.

I know I’m lucky I can wear jeans for work, and I count my blessings every single day. What is your go to outfit for work?

How Purba Ray stays chic in winter

When you live in Delhi, you spend most of the year for winter to arrive. When it finally does, you realise how tricky it is to keep warm without looking like a chowkidar on night duty.
These Ankle cut off pair of pants from Uniqlo is my favourite for its unique color. I have paired it with a short navy blue blazer from Mango and a black fitted top. Since boots are a big no with a length like this, I’m wearing Loafers.

God made winters so that women could wear boots. Mid length boots look better if you have thin legs like me. Mine look like spindles when I try wearing tights with short length boots. The hoodie from Zara has cuffs and the hood in silk and a nice contrast print and looks like something that you may not have flicked from your daughter’s wardrobe.

(About Purba: When Purba is not trawling the Internet for that perfect outfit, she writes for Arre and The Quint. Intensely vague, seriously funny, her humour is as bitter as the karelas she avoids. )
Thanks Purba, for being my very first guest blogger on FortyPlusFashion.
