What to wear on first day of college??

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably have an idea how much excited I am about getting selected in Pearl Academy of Fashion for pursuing Post Graduation in Fashion Designing!! I have always looked upto this institute as one of the bests in the industry and finally being a part of it make me feel so so happy....I cannot wait for the classes to begin, to learn everything about fashion and designing, and to finally stitch my own designs!

My classes would start in a month but I already cannot stop thinking about what I am going to wear for the first day at college and also on the following days...In fact, many of you girls would be soon joining new colleges or even starting a new semester at their college.This dilemma must be going on in your minds and hence, in this post I will try my best to help you all :)))

1. Discover your personality!!!

I would suggest to first evaluate and discover your personality, what you like or dislike, what suits you, etc etc...You may like boho style and would want to dress like casual boho chic, or your style might be fun and preppy...Here, I would discuss the college wear for normal students and also, I would suggest some tips if you are going to be a little bold with your dressing (I mean color!!)....I, personally,  would be opting for fun and preppy with a little boho mixed in...

2. Invest in some classic pieces..

Buy some basic denims and tanks if you don't have them already.A bellet flats would also be a necessity, IMO.A pair of trousers, a white shirt, bag that can fit all your essentials and so on.I always have some signature pieces like a pair of skinny jeans, comfy shoes, bright color tanks and so on...These are few basics that will always stant the test of time and will never go out of fashion. SO, save your money and buy some signature pieces and work your outfit around these.

And now, time for some visual aid ;)

BOHO CHIC
This look is to help bring out the boho chic in you without it being too much for college...The staples should be a boho tan bag and flow-ey tops.These two key pieces with the right accessories will bring out the glamour of boho fashion in your outfit...

PREPPY & FUN
The fun and preppy look! Opt for fun color pieces if you wanna rock this style and build the whole outfit around those key pieces. You can use neutrals to balance out the shock of one color or wear clashing and contrasting colors as well if you are up for it ;)

STYLE DIVA
There is always a girl in every class of whom every other girl is jealous and who is the queen of dreams of every boy...am I right? LOL!! Anyways... so, to be the most stylish girl , opt for golds and neutrals. The key here is skinny jeans...and I mean, super super skinny with sky-high heels ;)

GIRLY GIRL
To bring out the girly girl in you, you can wear skirts, cute frilly tops but do not do it like a 10 year old would do! Your outfit should look mature and stylish! Wear florals, colors, laces, whatever you like...just DON'T.OVERDO.IT!!!!

PUNK FUNK
I don't have much knowledge on punk fashion except that it involves lots of black :P I would suggest to incorporate a little color in your outfits as well coz an all black outfit can be a little intimidating...

I really hope I helped some of you coz it took me a lot of time bulding those outfits on Polyvore.com!! lol!! Have fun on your first day at college and remember to be yourself! :)

So, pretty much all I am doing these days is sitting in my room all day, either browsing net, watching TV or flipping Cosmo...which again leads to a brand new wishlist! ha ha! But this time, I am gonna try and get at least 5 items off this list. Since TFSI and UD Naked Palette are not available in India, I have requested a dear friend who is currently in US to get these for me ^____^ 
And did I tell you guys, I am learning to sew, my mom is too good at it so I thought why not make something of the holiday and learn a new skill! Let's see if I can do something more than sewing a button!!

They just got my blog url wrong but whatever!! I am in Cosmo!!!! I am like on the 9th cloud or something....super duper happy!!!!

What's in my purse?

This post was requested by a lovely follower of my blog a long time ago, but being the lame a** that I am, I was putting it off. Another reason would be that I was on holiday relaxing at home and occasionally going back to Delhi to give some entrances, and my camera's USB cable got lost somewhere in between :(.... But!! There's a good news...My mom is buying me a new camera!!! I have selected a really cool model from NIKON and it will be with me very soon....^____^

So, coming back to the real topic here, I generally carry my Da Milano black leather bag or my beloved satchel. I carry a lot of stuffs with me...I am always like...I might need this or this is really important (it's not...:P). With me, it's always like that :P That's why I rarely carry those small, cute cross body bags. But anyways, here's what I carry in my bag...


My favorite bag...it's getting really old though...:(



1. Wallet - I bought it 2 years ago from MissJo
2. Makeup Pouch - Got it free from Chambor on making a big purchase ^___^
3. Sunglasses
4. Hair Brush
5. Scrunchie
6. Tissues
7. Oil Blotting Sheets - The Body Shop, works just fine...
8. Mirror - BEST.INVENTION.EVER!!!
9. Pen
10. Body Lotion - the little bottle is so darn cute!!
11. Nivea Lip Balm
12. Orbit - I love these! I am chewing one now...:P
13. Keys - I just realized, I have 13 stuffs in my bag....that's why the oops!...not that I believe in superstitions but it just looks spooky with the skull on my keychain...ha ha!!


1. MAC MSF Natural - LOVE.LOVE.LOVE!!!
2. Oriflame Blush Brush - I use it for the compact...
3. Lipstick/ Lipgloss - I carry whatever I am wearing for touch-ups...
4. Maybelline Lipgloss - I am not much of a lipgloss person, but I carry this one all the time, just in case...:P
5. Chambor Kajal - I do not use it for my everyday makeup, it's just there in my bag for touch-ups...
6. Perfume - I always keep one of those free trial bottles in my purse...^___*
7. Earbuds

And that's it!! I think the things that I keep in my bag are very common. I keep the trial bottles of perfumes in my bag coz I may need to freshen up in the evening or might suddenly plan to go to he mall and sometime in case I forget wearing any perfume...:P The scrunchie is there because in summers I might feel like throwing my hair in a bun at any time of the day...so yeah! lol!
