The Classic Retro Combination

It’s funny how we blindly follow a set of rules when it comes to pairing two pieces of clothing together. There are times when you want to take the risk but are scared of the repercussion. The moment you pick out a piece of printed top or a bottom wear, in your head you have already registered that a print can only go well with a plain solid colour. Isn’t that true? What if you you paired two different prints together? Have you ever tried that combination?

Some time back when I was looking for something new to make me happy, I obviously went window shopping online. I saw this polka dot skirt with a frill lining at the end and wanted it hanging in my wardrobe. The issue here was, I am not a very polka dots friendly person until now. But I still decided to get it and try it out because of the shape of that skirt. When I received the skirt, I knew I had to go retro atleast for once. I decided to pair it up with another print and see how it looked. You can scroll down to see what happened next.

I personally think, the combination of a monochrome stripes top and a polka dot skirt did give me a retro vibe. Don’t you think so? Also, I tried to layer my hair like those vintage hair styles that we see in most of the black and white movie. Polka dots can never go out of fashion if styled well. I still have a Minnie Mouse toy wearing a red polka dot dress. That is where the trend started. They are age friendly, classy and voguish. Vintage fashion is trendy and fun!

Now again fashion ideas changes from person to person, someone who loves Indo-western may not like street style or someone who likes fast fashion won’t understand the beauty of vintage fashion. And then there are people like me who loves a mix of every trend. If you think print on print is too much, try adding a hint of retro print to your plain outfit. For example, a polka dot shoe, bag or a scarf. There are such adorable polka dots footwear available online.

All I would like to say is, recreate new fashion styles and share it with the world.

About In-Demand Kitchen Designs

Two of the most in-demand kitchens designs today are contemporary and traditional Shaker designs.

Traditional styles tend to have beading on the door, hinges on the outside with traditional style handles – (so door knobs instead of cup handles or long modern handles). These are the key features of a traditional shaker kitchen – these can be seen in the gallery page of this website  – the first kitchen ‘Edwardian Shaker Grey Kitchen the galleries page at https://www.shaker4less.com

Edwardian Shaker Grey Kitchen

You will also see the ‘shaker-kitchen-with-island’, the traditional shaker kitchen often referred to as a ‘true’ shaker style kitchen.

The Modern Shaker kitchen is also very popular with new home buyers.  They have soft closing hinges on the inside of the door, are painted in grey colours, and have modern handles (like cup handles). This is also in the gallery page and is  named ‘shaker-kitchen-dark-copper-butler-sink’ (the dark navy with the copper accessories). Grey colours are an extremely popular  trend today. Accessories in copper, such as dish racks and taps, add an exquisite finish to this high quality kitchen design. Dark grey works well if it is offset with a light colour on painted walls, light coloured cabinets or flooring.

Two tone shaker kitchens are also really popular, where wall cabinets are finished in a light grey or white colour, with a darker colour on the island. Most  kitchens in the gallery page with two different colours in the kitchen, represents this look. Again, having multiple grey tones is extremely popular in this trend.

If You Love Straw Bags Feat. Zaful

This post is all about the ever so trending straw bag. Everyone has one or needs one. So far I have only noticed Zara and few other international brands who sell these straw bags. Straw bags are no doubt chic and fashionable, but the price of these bags in India are extremely high. After doing a lot of research, I realised that booking a flight ticket to Bali is a great idea to find these straw bags in different shapes and colour but was also way cheaper than the online stores. Call me crazy but I actually made plans of travelling to that beautiful country not for the scenic beauty but for those straw bags.

When Zaful wrote to me for an association, the first thing I looked for on their website was for straw bags. Zaful always strives hard to launch the latest trends on their website. If you are looking for some fashion rage that is kicking in, you will always find it on their website. Size might be an issue at times, so I would suggest you buy a size bigger always. It’s easier to alter something that’s a size larger.

I wanted an earthy tone for this particular post. The skirt that I am wearing was a forgotten piece lying in the corner of my wardrobe. But not anymore! I decided to pull that out for this collaboration. Midi skirts are my current favourite. All this while I was obsessed with pencil skirts and now it’s time to extend the category in my skirt division. You will see a lot of them on my Instagram Feed!

5 Shoes Every Woman Should Have

Just like clothes, even your shoe wardrobe should have few staple essentials. It is always tempting to pile up different and shiny shoes but do you think that can save you from the-which-shoe-should-I-wear-moments?

We have all watched Sex and The City million times and envy Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe, especially her shoe collection. Let’s get real, most of us have a budget limit to spend on shoes. Don’t we? You might have a huge collection of shoes but are you sure if it would go with every occasion or outfit! Also, if you are a person who thinks shoes aren’t that important, then you are wrong. You need to head out and get yourself these staple shoe essentials. Trust me, it will save your life and time.

  • First thing first, a classic and comfortable sneaker is a must have. Sneaker is casual and chic. These days everyone prefers sneaker over heels.
  • Flats are perfect footwear to walk in if you are walking down to your nearest coffee shop or grocery store and not to forget how comfortable they are. If you live in places that has humid and sultry weather conditions, this is a saviour.
  • Mules are not only popular but fashionable too. They are smart and a perfect work wear. You can either go for mules or ballerinas for daily work foot wear. It gives your outfit a chic flair.
  • Nude heels are a perfect leg lengtheners. Simple! It goes with every outfit that you have in your wardrobe.
  • Last but not the least, oxfords. They add a lot of drama to you outfit. If you love wearing indo western outfits like me, try styling these shoes with your outfit.

I hope these essentials help you organise your shoe wardrobe better. Also, don’t forget to share you shoe essentials with me!
