The vintage era is my favorite era of fashion. Whenever I think of vintage, I think of all things glam and retro. Pin curls and bouffant, immaculate red lips and colorful clothes: Vintage era is and will be the most glamorous era in the history. Icons like Madonna and Cher ruled the roost; their fashion statement is talked about even today. And not only fashion, this era inspires me in every other way. The casual, happy-go-lucky vibes captured in the grainy vignette photographs intrigues me of the time we all want to replicate. The regal yet cheerful people bolstered by a booming economy, with their innocent love stories and romance melts my heart. And who can forget the entertainment industry? It was probably at its best! Call me old-fashioned, but I enjoy every aspect of the vintage world.

When it comes to vintage, the fashion was a defining element of the era. I interpret retro more than a sweeping generalization of bright colors, polka dots and bell bottoms. For me it is fitted, chic yet cheerful clothing representing the empowered women of that era. Marrying femininity with ease, I wanted to create a look which blends well with this era while giving some vintage chic vibes. Hence I chose this check black-and-white pencil skirt. Patterns were huge back in the days, so I felt like incorporating those in my outfit.

For my top, I chose this red crop top with a nice frill. Crop tops and frills originally belonged to the grand vintage era, so what’s better than adding those two elements together in my outfit! I chose the color red because it reminds me of the quintessential glamour of the retro era. Red is bright, bold and makes a statement wherever you go. To go with the outfit, I put my hair up with a red satin hair band and bold red lips. I finished the look with a pair of black sliders with buckle detailing on it to add that modern touch.

I love how everything turned out in this look. Including some vintage pieces with my modern, chic outfit came out to be a successful experiment. Vintage/retro fashion is often regarded as loud and crass, but for me it defines self-expression and art. I love the feel and vibes of the era, and will surely go back to this era for more style and fashion inspiration!

Hope you like this post.

Much love :*

What is the first thing that comes in mind when we think of summer? A rendezvous to nice golden beaches and blue sea or an escapade to high mountains and beautiful hill stations, right? But for me, summer means so much more than a vacation. It is the time to cherish the beauty of Nature.

The occasional relief of drizzle interspersed in between the days with unforgiving Sun, followed by the cool summer breeze in the evening: there is a beauty which remains unappreciated of summers. And not only the weather, but the colors of summer are something worth mentioning. The yellows, reds, whites dominate the summer colors palette alongside with a hint of green and blue, making everything look so vibrant and magical. I like to switch my dresses from floral prints to more bold monochromatic colors or feminine pastels to match the summer vibes.

Summer is the best season to experiment with clothes, and I make sure to leave no stones unturned in that.

For this look, I chose to go monochromatic with a chrome yellow two-piece outfit. Yellow, I feel, is a must have in every girl’s wardrobe. It is quintessentially flamboyant and is sure to make heads turn. So I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to wear an off-shoulder crop top with a matching long skirt. Crop tops aren’t going anywhere this year too, so it pairs well with the breezy long skirt and adds on to the effortless yet feminine vibes.

With this outfit, I decided to accessorize it with a pair of reflective sunglasses. I chose blue reflectors to compliment the beautiful location. The clear summer skies and blue waters look lovely, which inspired me for this entire ensemble. And I love how everything turned out: the ensemble goes perfectly well with the location!

I feel the most important aspect for dressing up in any season, is to match its vibes. I feel summer is all about the casual, laid back yet fiery and sexy vibes.

Hot afternoons and breezy evenings, swim dates and long walks: This is how I define my summer days. How do you define your summers?

What is Valentine’s Day?

Does it change anything in our life?

How often do we love our self?

When was the last time you took yourself out?

When was the last time you snuggled in bed just because you wanted to spend time with your own self?

When was the last time you took pictures of yourself and stuck them in your room because you love looking at yourself, instead of sharing it on social media so that others can like and share their views on how you look?

When was the last time you looked in the mirror and smiled, teased, laughed at yourself?

When was the last time you said “I am the best” for real to somebody instead of writing it as a caption on your picture? Do you have the guts to say you are the best and you love the way you are, to somebody on their face?

Do you really sleep peacefully every night? Without any worries about others?

Do we really know what love is? If we think we do, because we’re great at showing love to our loved one’s then where does self-love go? When does that happen?

So many of us are programmed to take care of others constantly. We often look for others to fulfil our desires and show affection to us. We don’t usually enjoy investing in ourselves or make us a priority.

Most of us, spend half of our lives adjusting to things, compromising, making others happy, and living our lives according to others just because we love them.

If we loved ourselves the way we love others we would have been the happiest in life.

This Valentine’s Day Love Yourself.

Here are 5 things you could start with:

  1. Forgive yourself

My friend Saniya, once told me how important forgiving ourselves is and how it changes our lives. I remember cribbing about things I couldn’t achieve while chatting with her often (things like not being able to blog regularly, not being able to attend a particular event or cancelling shoots etc.). I realised that cribbing about not being able to do stuff actually made me depressed due to which I couldn’t focus on bettering things.

One day while conversing with her, she showed me her diary where she wrote all the regrets she had, under which she had written the reasons and a question asking if she was really prepared for the things that didn’t work and answers below to those questions. It all made sense to me and I realized that blindly running in life with regrets will never help me grow in life. Everybody makes mistakes which is Just Fine. It all depends on how you take it.                                                         

 

 

 

 

2. Keep yourself first

There lies beauty in sacrifice. But when you constantly put yourself second, you set up an inevitable pattern of behavior. In time, you settle for second place in more than one area of life. Re-evaluate what it means to put yourself first: engaging in your interests, pursuing your ambitions, and ensuring your well-being. Your romantic relationships will flourish too if you keep yourself first. Whether you’re in a relationship or looking for one, I guarantee your partner will feel more enamored with you and more fulfilled in the relationship when you’re not afraid to make yourself a priority.

 

3. Say I love you.

Speak it to yourself every morning; look in a mirror and say “I love you” in a loud voice. We automatically critique, blame, and fault ourselves for nearly everything, rarely acknowledging the things we do well or those we ought to be proud of.

Show yourself daily doses of well-deserved appreciation.

4. Do something you love each day.

When was the last time you did something you truly loved? Our ambition is admirable, but our lives have become so busy that we often dismiss simple pleasures to take care of business. Whether it’s a hobby, talent, or special craft, take thirty minutes out of your day, each day, to practice what nourishes your soul. Everything can wait while you indulge in your beloved self.

 

5. Cut out all negative influences                                     

Make a list of the people in your life who have no place being there. You know who they are — those who drain you physically, emotionally, or mentally, who take advantage of you or cause you any form of stagnation. Literally cut your list in half and let this be reflective of the way in which you will trim away these negative influences in real life.

 

 

Lastly, celebrate your worth.

It’s easy to get distracted by potential achievements and neglect past accomplishments. Don’t be afraid to raise your glass and toast to that amazing person who’s conquered their every challenge: YOU. Remember, you were born to be perfectly loved and completely lovable.

 

There is no better time to begin than NOW.
