Anya Hindmarch Inflight Travel MakeUp Bag

I have a thing for British Designers – Anya Hindmarch, Victoria Beckham (She really has come a long way in her designs!) J W Anderson. The not-so-new crop of designers from across the pond hold my interest more than the American ones, may be because they are not entirely commercialized and splashed over every magazine here? Maybe they retain a sense of quirkiness and mix it well with quality fashion? I really don’t know.

I have heard mixed reviews about Anya Hindmarch bags. I absolutely abhor those fur charms. There is no need for them. A silk twill or a beautiful non-fur charm would do just fine if you absolutely need to accessorize your bag! Real fur charms on bags is one trend that I hope will die in 2018. And that goes for all bag designers and fashion houses including Fendi, the evil father of all fur charms. Read more

My Retin A Journey – 1st month

This year, I started using prescription Retin-A. You can read more about how I got started in my first post.

Turning 30 has made me a little more inclined to care for my skin and body in general. I am slowly stepping away from late nights, bad sugars and everything that messes up with my biological clock and system.

Here is a quick summary of using Retin-A for 1 month: Read more

Interview with H – Part 2

Here is Part 2 of my interview with H from Pret a Porter P. She talks about Buying, Shopping, Trends & Fashion and Minimalism in this part. Look out for the ‘Story of the Cursed Chanel Jacket’! Happy Reading!!

On Buying:

From reading your blog, I am aware that you haven’t bought a new bag since 2015. That is simply awesome! Thank you for inspiring me! How do keep your resolve? Especially, in a time when there are so many new IT Bags, Styles and Silhouettes. What is your advice?

Actually, I bought a bag this year, since I needed a small, cheap crossbody bag for work. Other than that I’m not aware or interested in current IT bags. And I don’t believe in paying a lot of money to have the same bag as “everyone else”  on the internet (that said, what is popular on the internet is not what’s popular in real life). My taste for luxury bags skew towards the 2000s since bags had more unique designs—which is a plus for me as they are no longer in production, long since forgotten, and have lower resale values.

Interview with H – Part 1

I discovered Pret A Porter P by H around the same time that I started blogging. Our styles are different. But that did not stop me from reading her blog voraciously and admiring her style. I felt an instant connection to what she wrote. In a world that celebrates over consumption and over exposure, her voice and style are authentic and very personal. For me, she nailed it when she wrote ‘Poor quality comes at all price ranges’.

H was really kind to indulge me with an interview! Here is the Part 1:

On Her Personal Style:

From reading your blog, I know that you could write a love letter to the color black! I am curious, when did dressing in black start?

Around 2004/2005ish, I was in fashion school and I had an embarrassing and nonsensical wardrobe. My goal was to look neat and put together so I had to get rid of a lot and start from scratch. The easiest and broke college student friendly way to do that was all black clothes. Plus around 2005, all black was the dress code for where I worked.

But when I’m off duty, especially in the summer, I do wear color and vibrant tropical prints.

A Few Good Habits

Streamlining my personal style helped pick up a few good habits along the way. I will admit, I am still a long way from making them permanent ‘muscle memory’. Slowly and surely, we all get there, don’t we? Here is my list of good habits: Read more

Things Bought…

Final Picture

During my shopping ban earlier this year, I had time to assess what was really missing in my wardrobe. It became evident that I needed a few tops / blouses.

My requirements for new blouses were: Read more
