This is a look in one of my most favorite colors- Blue. A simple Tokyo talkies dress and jacket with blue medium sized pearls and black kitten heels, perfect for my fibromyalgia joints that rule out pumps now completely.
I like flexi-dressing a lot, where I can just change the look from formal to casual by just removing the jacket and pearls.

This short chiffon dress was worn for a casual outing with my girls, I love the browns to break the monotony of my mostly black wardrobe. The similar shade Mary Janes make the outfit and me both appear youthful and playful.

I love lot of casual dressing, a pink front panel shirt by bronz paired with a regular blue jeans and some golden ballerinas, perfect for a casual outing. When comfort and color combine the effect usually is calm and impressive and I like that.
BLACK
As they say one can never go wrong with black, it is my favorite color and here I team a long ankle length kurta with a plain black gypsy skirt inside,warm and cosy for Delhi winters with a black turtle neck.

Denim and chiffon

While denim is my standard go to look for every single thing–I think I’m going to write it into my funeral instructions that I go off to the electric crematorium in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers-I try to jazz it up a bit for times when I’m on display. This is a royal blue empire line top in chiffon with some diamante at the waist, of indeterminate origin bought off some store in Lokhandwala market, worn with a pearl and blue stone chain (which of course has gone awry given I can never keep all parts of self in coherent assemblage). The bag is a huge black Zara which fits in everything plus the kitchen sink, and some more. Sometimes I suspect if I fall into my handbag, I might just emerge into an alternate universe. Does that happen with you too?

Sparkle and shine

Not a recent picture but included because I was forty plus for sure when it was clicked. We were off to a wedding, the offspring and I. And I was damned if I was going to get myself into a saree. So here I am, with fitted trousers, a mid thigh chiffon top with exquisite beadwork, my favourite golden wedges which have since unfortunately collapsed on me and which I have mourned the demise of, some diamonds at my neck and the best arm accessory I could sport, the offspring. Now, ofcourse, I’m at the tip of his ears, and those shoes he’s wearing I’ve inherited.

Chanda Bisht shares her traditional and modern takes

I rarely wear a saree but I think it is one of the most graceful garments ever. I love the easy drape of this chiffon Jaipur lehriya, paired with a pink Banarasi brocade blouse. On my wrist the traditional Kumaoni ponchi bracelet.

This dress from M&S is a simple sheath that has a flattering fit, and is easy day wear. I pair it with a bright pop of colour in my handbag.

Another comfort look is denim and black. A denim jacket from Only, with my regular jeans and a black top, worn with sneakers. Perfect for a busy day out and about.

Black and gold

everyday style, fashion

Easiest go to evening look. Black straight fit trousers. A comfortable chiffon Cue by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna black top lined with gold fabric, perfect for those “Damn where did my waistline go?” days. Gold peep toes, gold bag (not seen here). Red lip. The nails ideally should have been red, but what the hell, what am I if not last minute uncoordinated chic. The make up could have been less Return Of The Living Dead, I agree, but camera lights and lights around my dressing table have to get in synch for that. What say?
