The life of the mind 1.0

Hey beautiful!

I hope you have been doing well. It’s August already! I still can’t believe that half a year is over and guess what it’s the time when we start preparing for the new college year to begin. You’re about to live the life you have always thought of, the life that you have discussed with your friends when you were in school. Yes! You’re about to switch from ‘Bata to Catwalk’, from those ‘boring school uniforms to colourful outfits’. Exciting, isn’t it? But with all this you are about to make a shift from friendly school to rude college. The school has its share of tormentors and creeps but trust me, college is another fiend. College plays a vital role in one’s life, in shaping and exploring the inner self of a person, by letting you connect to the world in a different way. People here will be more envious, more judgemental and more fake though exceptions are always there. There will be people with every materialistic thing better; better clothes, better bags, better shoes, better mobiles. And to be honest, it will hit you in gut, at first. But darling, never feel inferior, because you’ve something that others don’t. You have the personality. You’ve the brain.  You’ve the words. You’ve the aura. And about beauty, well, I know how you look will matter more now. Don’t try to be their kind of beautiful because they don’t know what real beauty is. Beauty is how perfect you’re in your imperfections. Materialistic things shine, but inner beauty glitters more than gold.

Coming back to where I was, when thinking of putting outfits together for College, while keeping in mind the dressing code, weather and also looking cute we all have faced the dilemma of, “What should I wear?” or “How should I carry myself?” So here is a small solution for all you beautiful ladies. Being a college student, I have always kept myself simple yet eye-catching (Well personally I love to be so.) *silly smile* 

Today I have put together a look that you could wear to college that will not only be comfortable, but really fun and stylish too! I have paired a slouchy tee (fbb – India’s Fashion Hub) with a high-waisted denim and a pair of sneakers. To elevate the look, I wore a scarf (picked up from new market – Kolkata) as a headband and got everything together by adding a fastrack watch. Complete the ensemble with a cute backpack and you’re all ready to go.

I’d love to know how you people liked this outfit. And I’m sure it will be a hoot and heed for more college look. So I’m hoping to do more of this now. Coming up with a new look soon. Until then stay perfect in your imperfections. And don’t forget to subscribe and write your thoughts on this look below in the comments section.
Much love! 😘

Sabyasachi’s Autumn Winter 2017 Couture Jewellery collection 

Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the one designer who is on almost every bride’s list. Afterall, what can be more elegant, heart-stealing and royal than a Sabyasachi Lehenga for a bride-to-be? Sabyasachi is a virtuoso of the bridal couture, whose remarkable exquisites, convoluted designs, the touch of velvet, detailed karigari and those dreamy colours not only make him India’s best designer, but people admire and recognise him throughout the world for his work. His designs are a personalised imperfection of the human hand and he describes his collection as “an International styling with an Indian soul.”

In the last few years, he has turned his eyes towards jewellery and his mesmerising embellishment creation evokes images of ancient and medieval India. He released the preview for his Autumn Winter 2017 Couture Jewellery collection on 20th july on instagram.
While going through the preview, I recalled an incident where someone asked me, “What will be the term that makes you say ‘yes’ to a man’s proposal?” And without even a second thought I said, “Buy me Sabyasachi’s Lehenga and I’m all yours.” (The answer left my friends dumbstruck for a moment) 🙈🙈
To be honest, I have a dream list pinned in my cupboard and to be a ‘Sabyasachi bride’ tops my list. *stupid smiles* 😁 As a teenager I have always fantasized about this. But with time you grow up, and now I JUST DON’T WANT IT, I WANT TO EARN IT. There’s a difference in want and earn. Rather than waiting for someone else to gift it to me, I’ll chase my dream, work for it and gift it to myself one day.
Here are some of my personal favourites from the debut :

The Black Fanatic

First of all, Thank you all for showing so much love and support on my first post. And I hope to get the same love and support on all my posts. So today’s post is all about the Black Maxi Dress I recently bought.

The color black itself is a statement. Every coin has two faces – positive and negative. Likewise “Black is modest and arrogant. Black is lazy and easy, but mysterious. But above all black says this : I don’t bother you, don’t bother me.” According to the Indian mythology Black represents darkness and thus not considered as an auspicious color. But fashion always spearheads itself to be a unique statement.
And! And! If you people remember Gabriel Channel once said, “Black reveals a woman’s radiance. It trumps all.” Black is the most fashionably popular color, a mark of elegance and the one that goes with everything. Black creates  sense of mystery and keeps things to itself, hidden from rest of the world. It can be mixed and matched with any hue to create a masterpiece. Don’t you all believe this to be true?

No matter how much I try not to pick up black clothes while shopping, I end up choosing one. So when it comes to my closet it is almost full with color black, be it beautiful black shirts, T-shirts (formal and informal), trousers, LBD and the most favoured and elegant piece : the maxi dress, which is a must have in a girl’s closet!

The one I’m wearing for my new blog is a perfect outfit to meet the so called sexy, classy and alluring look for a perfect date or a cocktail party. I have paired this one with a brown stiletto and a small diamond stud, which I borrowed from my mom. (I often loose my earrings so she wasn’t actually ready to give that to me but I somehow managed to convince her) 🙈

And about the makeup I have just done the basics with winged eyeliner and a bright red lips.

Much love. 😘
