I tell myself I should get solo pics clicked when I deign to dress up and then always completely forget all about it. For just this, I make a terrible fashion blogger, but this is not your regular fashion blog, is it? For one, it is regular everyday fabulously fierce women in their everyday looks. And it is a mood, getting things done, on the go. For another, I repeat shoes, accessories and what not. And for yet another, I have pics with some lovely, fierce ladies that I can help but share on this blog. Allow me some showing-offing, as the offspring would say.
So, yesterday I had a lovely chat with the exquisitely beautiful Lisa Ray for her memoir, Close to the Bone on a SheThePeople.TV FB live. Lisa looked divine in a deconstructed linen outfit, with embroidered slip on. I wore a green camouflage print shirt dress ordered off Myntra (no, this is not a paid promotion, alas) from a brand called Zima Leto.
Not a ‘brand brand’ but just a quirky print that caught my eye while browsing at Central. The label says Sushila. What I loved were the funky camels and elephants, the comfort of a flowing long cotton shirt dress with a cord belt, and enough give to accommodate, errm my avoir dupois. Like?
I confess with summer in Mumbai, I opt for cottons and linens in flowing styles. What are your go to looks for summer?
At L’Affaire Godrej The Trees yesterday, in a Global Desi shirt dress. Yes, it is a size bigger, I prefer to wear something a little looser than my size so I can grow into it. Seriously though, it just feels more comfortable in the humidity of Mumbai to allow for enough air circulation. Paired this with an oxidised silver knot neckpiece, a structured taupe Da Milano bag and my good old brown suede Catwalk clogs that don’t really go with this, but are sky high and darned comfortable, despite the high heel. No pockets with this one. Damn.
