Are you ready for this jelly!

{Top - Kazo, Printed Pants - Local boutique, Shoes - Asos, Ring - Aldo, Purse - Thrifted}

Finally I gathered the courage to wear printed pants and a bold color together.And judging from the many appreciative glances I got today, I think Delhi is ready to get all sexy and bold. It was a little awkward in metro but I wore a cape over the top so it was not that bad. I would say, ladies, go get your glam on and flaunt what ya got!

Trend Watch: Printed Pants

We wear different kind of tops, different fabrics, different print, different styles but we always wear the same denims below them. This season saw some major life-altering changes (might be an overstatement :P ) in the bottom wear world.We were introduced to hot pink pants...which actually looked hot and not like some 14 year old girl's fetish with the color pink.The red, green & lemon yellow pants have been the talk of the town since the spring/summer 2011 collection hit the stores.Even a brand like Zara, which is known for its neutral basics turned all gems(yes, I am referring to the chocolate). I also made friends with two of them, the hot pink and the sexy red.And saying that I love them to death wouldn't be much of an overstatement.

But now, we are witnessing prints as in printed pants. And if you ask me, I love this trend more than I ever loved color-blocking!!And that says a lot. The trend has been all over the runways in the summer/spring 2011 collection.And many celebrities have been spotted sporting it as well.

I am guessing my take would be a little different than these. I will post the outfit very soon. Let me know what you guys think about this hot trend...

P.S. - I ran into Pallavi from StylePile today at Zara and she was sooo sweet to me...she totally made my day...and Pallavi, it was really really great to run into u!!! Hope to see you soon again... <3

Feeling summer-ey

{Top - Promod, Tights - Muah, Scarf - local boutique, Coral stone ring - Forever21, Stack of rings - Accessorize, Shoes - Venus Steps, Bag - Thrifted}

Now go up again and see the second last picture. I think that's the best bun I have ever made. A year ago, I had no idea how people just twisted their hair and made the bun, so effortlessly! I did not had hair long enough to make a bun which can stay at the same place the whole day but today I excel in that area (at least, I would like to think that I do). It's pretty simple now, yes, I do have to use at least 5-6 pins to make it stay in place and then a big spritz of hairspray but it's all worth it. I do not use heat so often now and throwing my hair in a bun feels so good in summers, no sticky hair situation on a hot humid day :))

Tag: Would you rather

I saw this fun tag on cute Christine Iverson's blog HERE and I immediately decided to do it! It's so much fun doing tag once in a while...

1) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?I will settle for loosing the eye shadows as I can live without those but definitely not my eyeliners and lipsticks!!They are my must-have products!

2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Never be able to cut it again...Actually, I haven't had a cut in last two years, just trimming every 6 months...trying to grow them out...:))

3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral!!! I love everything coral! So so pretty! And it lightens up my face as well.

4) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Clothes! I am a fashion blogger so it's kinda obvious. I love makeup but I have a reasonable amount of it, I see no reason of having two lipsticks in a similar shade...but two tees in a similar color, I am all for it :P

5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
Eyeliner as lipstick. People do wear black lipstick but never a red eyeliner!

6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
We don't have Sephora here so It's MAC...who am I kidding!I love MAC anyway :P

7) Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color the rest of your life?

One eyeshadow color.....I would settle for MAC's Swiss chocolate for the rest of my life but I love my lippies...I want to have each and every shade one day :P

8) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in the winter. I just cannot bear layered clothes in Summers....Hell!!

9) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails!! I love bright pink, lemon yellow, neon orange, bright green, coral, every freakin' color!

10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Ooooh! That's a tough one....I guess eye.. no no lip...oh no! eye...Ah! I can't decide!!!

11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Messy bun...I hate my hair in ponytails...doesn't look good on me as I don't have too much hair on my head :(

12) Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss?
Never use lip glosses...I am more of a lipstick person now so I can live without lip glosses.

13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? Or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie them in every day...(no eyebrows!! are you kidding me!!!!....#horrified#)

14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Nail Polish. I love makeup and anyway, face is the first thing people notice, I can get away with a manicured hand with no polish :P

I tag all of you, and please let me know if you do it...:))

Workin' the high-waisted pants

{Pants/Top - local boutique, Ring - Aldo, purse - thrifted, Shoes - Venus Steps}

I am falling in love with printed high-waisted pants but I was afraid to wear them out, Delhi is not ready for printed pants and especially not in metro...So, I am trying to ease my way into it by wearing a plain black one first. May be now I will be bold enough to wear loud prints and colors....

Btw, I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-2 and mahn, it made me cry!! But fortunately I was prepared for it and had not applied kajal on my waterline hence no bleeding kajal scenario for me :P The movie was so touching, it was like witnessing the end of an era...the era of my childhood...Harry took my childhood with him. It feels so weird even to think that there would be no Voldemort terrorizing little wizards and there would be no Hogwarts! No Snape! No Hermoine! No Ron! No Neville! No Prof. McGonnagal! No Hagrid! No HARRY!!!!!! That's it, I can't write anymore....overwhelming emotions...:((((

Tried the attitude look, doesn't suits me!

{Red Pants - Zara, Shirt - old, Necklace/Ring - Forever21, Tan Ankle Boots - U.S.}

A told me today to show some attitude while photo shoot, looks good in a fashion blog. I agreed. But now that I have seen the pics, I disagree. Serious look doesn't suit me, I feel that I look good only when either I have a big close-up smile plastered on my face or I am making my stupid duck face.Yeah, I like me in my duck pouts.I know, weird right? Well, that's how I roll ;)

p.s. - You can see it's getting tough for me to hold back the smile in the last pic :P

p.p.s.- These kids were laughing their face off the whole time so A asked them politely if they would like to get clicked. Doesn't matter how irritating they get, kids are always cute! See...
