Mellow Yellow

How much is too much yellow?

Do you remember the last time I wrote about how to restyle an outfit instead of just adding more clothes to your wardrobe? Do you also remember that I promised to work on atleast one post every month on restyling? Well, here I am with another restyling post for this month.

This time I am going to restyle this yellow tailor made shrug that I wore earlier in this post. I personally think, restyling an outerwear is a difficult task compared to restyling a top or bottom wear. An outer wear acts as a statement piece for most of the outfit and when you restyle the same piece, the outfit will unfortunately give the same touch as the earlier styling. So make sure you choose the right piece of outfit to restyle if you want to look different.

Shrugs or any other outer wear are my signature style statement and I have been obsessed with them since the beginning of its discovery. This precious silk shrug was tailor made for my cousin’s wedding and since then it has been lying in my wardrobe waiting to be worn again. That is when I worked on The Banjaran post and after a year, again restyling the same beauty today. I am sure you wouldn’t have realised that I was restyling the same shrug again since I tried to make it look like a co-ord set rather than an individual piece of clothing mix and matched together. Not to forget those satin ankle boots from Zara that I unknowingly restyled too. The cotton white top that I paired with them was a great find from the streets of Sarojini. I am so glad that I took out time to visit this magical place in my recent trip to Delhi and found such amazing stuff. Also, You can never have enough white shirt. And if they are selling it to you at a dirt cheap rate, you buy it without thinking twice.

Stay tuned for more amazing content on The Small Town Blogger.

The Casual Kind

There are times when you want to spend and lot of time in front of the mirror & dress up and there are times when you want to party in your PJ’s. I have cancelled plans with friends a lot of times on days when I didn’t want to dress up and go out. I wish I could just wear something casual to places which has a fancy dress code. This post is dedicated to those days when I don’t want to dress up! I am sure a lot of you will relate to it.

I have been a crazy dhoti pant fanatic since a very long time and thankfully still obsessed with this particular indo-western style. It’s comfortable and fashionably accepted too. Well, who cares about the fashionably accepted part if you are confident in what you wear. With atleisure wear trending like fire, casual wear is also gravitating. My style is all about mix & match. I may have a signature style but I also love experimenting with things that is a tad bit risky for a curvy body type. The more experiments you make, the better. That’s the mantra my friend!

Not that I follow celebrities and try to replicate the same but there are a few inspiring fashionistas. Trendy fashion sometimes begin with them. You can see the trends change with the type of clothes celebrities are papped in. From glam to casual and biker shorts. You can see the drastic fashion trend change. What do you have to say about that?

Coming to the post : Blame it on Sex & The City or Devil Wears Prada and other movies that showed working women walking to work with a classy bag and a coffee take away to work. I always wanted to walk or drive to work like that but I don’t think it will happen in the near future with the kind of job responsibilities I have. Hence, I tried to fulfil this little dream of mine by walking into the shoot location with a colourful coffee mug that I bought from Westside. On a different note, I am really impressed with the home decor section of Westside. Have you been to that side of the store ever? I can’t wait to have my own house to fill it up with those amazing stuff. By the way, the mug was an impulsive buy because I don’t drink coffee but now that I have this fancy thing, I have started making coffee at home to use it. Do you do that too?

Without any further ado, I shall let you enjoy the pictures. Comfort pants are a must have! That’s all I can say for now.

The Current Obsession

With a zillion things trending right now, I decided to pick the high waist pants style. These kick ass pants are everywhere online and you can’t dare to miss it, even if you aren’t looking for one. I am currently obsessed with these pants and planning to get more colours in the same. From high waist ruffle trousers to culottes, they have them all (they meaning the online shopping world). I have been living day and night in these pants, not this in particular but this kind. They are extremely comfortable and you can pair it with both heels and sneakers as per the occasion. I am currently obsessed with them.

Keeping that in mind, another fashion trend kicking in majorly are the waist bags. I had bought one ages ago. The one that I bought from Lulu&Sky came with a sling and waist belt both. Since then I have been using it more like a sling bag but for this particular post, I decided to pair the outfit with the waist belt for a change. It’s pretty convenient. I remember the time when my father used to carry one around his waist for his phone, keys and wallet. And years later, this trend is back with a bang!

Here I am, in my favourite pants and the current trending waist bag. I decided to add my patent fashion touch to my current obsession by adding a long orange shrug to the outfit. I hope you like the post!

About the shoot:  Arjun was walking to my place from a kirana store close by and found few colourful houses on his way back. That’s how discovered the beauty of the location through his camera lens.

Enjoy the pictures!!

Restyling Project – The White Dress

Few months back, I had styled a plain white dress from The Label Life on my blog. If you haven’t seen this particular post, you can click on the hyperlink here. In the earlier post, I had styled the dress with a brocade shrug that was tailor made. With a pair of brogues and different anklet, I tried to give it a bohemian vibe.

Restyling and recreating is all about being creativity. I have noticed people who take pride in saying that they don’t repeat their clothes but I find that foolish and unnecessary. Experimenting with the clothes you already have in your wardrobe is not only fun but supremely pocket friendly. You will be astonished to know about the number of ways in which you can style a single outfit. Instead of continuously spending your money on fast fashion, try investing on something ethical and learn how to restyle it smartly. You will be surprised!

I don’t think I have seen any blogger (except for few) restyle their already worn outfits, so I have decided to take this challenge and restyle this dress. Also, every month you will find atleast one post that concentrates only on restyling and recreating trends with the already worn outfits. If you follow me since the beginning, you would have noticed a lot of skirts and shrugs that I have restyled divergently. That’s the key to a new beginning my friend!

Coming back to the post, this time I decided to keep the outfit very simple. I had this wrap top with a peplum end lying in my closet and so was this white dress since that last shoot. Few weeks back when I was de-cluttering my wardrobe, I found these two and decided to pair these together to see how it goes. It’s a very simple every day wear outfit. I added a pop of colour with an orange lulu & sky bag and a pair of strappy sandals.

Would you want me to do more restyling posts?
