Summer Trio “Get The Look”

One trend which we all know is the “Colour Pop Dresses”.

I would have probably not noticed these girls,had they not been walking together.Taking a modern twist on the “oh so Pin-up Retro Lipstick”, these girls have fused High-Street brands with Vintage accessories.

The MIDI is a huge hit, and works for all heights.Play with varying lengths reflect an era dressing.

Taking inspiration from these lovely ladies here, I have created 2 boards to help you buy the looks!

P.s: My Vintage “Must Have” is a bright Kate Moss for Rimmel red matt Lipstick with Mac eyeliner.

Please share with fellow readers your Vintage “Must-have”!

Most of my regular readers (Whoever /wherever you are…THANK YOU!) would know that I rarely move away from the world of fashion, design and lifestyle.Yes it makes me sound frivolous and materialistic, but on the other side appreciative of the art and beauty around me.

I am geeky enough of making a spreadsheet and collecting web links which inspire me, makes me feel good , by transporting me to a place I want to be. I am a hoarder for websites, like this one called “The Little Corner”, transports to me a place I want to call home in a few years,and “Little goddess” who shares her everyday in life, and takes me on a journey with her.

It is all good, till I see a documentary like “Life in a day”, and feel so small! So petty!For any of you, who don’t know what Life in a day is, click here

One of the scene which touched me most was when a father (Japanese I think) sets up his camera to have a view of this small room which looks like an utter mess,and is trying to wake up his son Taiji, and tells him to use to the loo, or else he can’t watch tele.

The kid wades through a mess of objects lying everywhere(By this time I am thinking, he should have made the room look presentable before shooting it!) little do I know, the next scene is them wading through another messy room, and go to light some incense in front of a picture of a beautiful young woman, Taiji’s deceased mother and the Man’s love of his life! they wish “Good morning Mommy” and carry on their day.

Another dramatic scene is when someone asks, what is in your pocket, and this Indian man says “Kuch Bhi Nahin hai” (there is nothing, its empty), and the next scene is this man who says, there is a key in my pocket, which has a beautiful logo on it, that of a Lamborghini.

Beautiful part? Both men are Smiling.

This blog which is now my Siamese twin, is also my voice and my thoughts, and I just wanted to share my experience of watching a movie which will be stored on my shelf for the rest of my life, and will be watched 50 years from now…to reflect on well..Life in one’s day!

For all those who have watched it, please share your experiences, and for all those who haven’t…you know what to do!

P.s: This is one of my favourite soundtracks

Vanity moments in the Porcelain Buildings.

It is so satisfying when you come across something new and exciting and you know you can share it with the world( well a part of the world) by going home and writing on your blog.

I remember, before my “Blog-Era”, I would come across things and would be like, Oh I wish my friends from my fashion school were here, they would love it, or at least they would understand my excitement when I see something new!

So well, here is my outlet, I came across this, literally a corner store in Shorts Garden, London, called “Do”. It is this quirky bright little design store which keeps modern and intelligent looking things, but still very functional.

It would have a triangle-shaped aero dynamic Umbrella, and on the other side, it would these 8 wired hangers welded together to provide a storage solution for your jackets. Things, people like me would like to have at home, to make it home.

I set my eyes on this porcelain Palace by this brand called Seletti, which I was told by the very friendly owners,who collect these items personally, (Good taste these fellows have) that the Palace is actually a set of their Table collection, which gets detached into individual layers used as plates, but also women have bought it to use it as their vanity case, to keep their jewellery etc.

So here I am share my find of the day, the shop and the company’s website is a must visit, and if you in London, you know where to go next ;)
