It is always better to be slightly underdressed.

9. Fashion defined
And they said a happy woman was a myth, ha!

Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejuvenate women. To make women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous.

10. C.H.A.N.G.E
When looking to find something, you gotta know where to look…

Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.

11. Dressing decoded
A surefire way to either strike or be struck out!

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

12. And there’s no occasion that isn’t special anymore!
Because Coco Chanel said ‘I don’t do fashion, I’m fashion’ and we should simply take the cue…

Every day is a fashion show and the world is the runway.

13. Fashion 101
It’s an expression of who you are…

Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.

14. And she explains…
This should make it clear…

Fashion in not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

15. The tip to keep in mind…
…before you trip…

Trendy is the last stage before tacky.

16. A matter of perspective
keeping pace with time or sticking to timeless- a choice!

Fashion changes but style endures.

17. Age no bar!

You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.

18. Because heels help…
…to hold your head high and ask the others to come up, see you in the eye and match your standards!

Keep your heels, head & standards high.

19. Ooh…
…that kinda nails it…

A woman is close to being naked when she is well dressed.

20. The best-ever fashion guide
Cram it – no questions asked!

It’s not the appearance, it’s the essence.
It’s not the money, it’s the education.
It’s not the clothes, it’s the class.

21. Because the right shoe…
…puts some surety in your steps, right?

A woman with good shoes is never ugly!

22. Fashion IS fashion…
Enough said!

Known for my laidback and chilled out attitude, I have always believed in making the most of life. I am candid, talkative and not your usual girl next door. With aspiration too big for these tiny eyes, I am looking to grow that perfect pair of wings which can help me visit the places I have only dreamed of. I am a blend of contradictions, an oxymoron in myself as you will find me splurging insanely on ridiculous stuff and the very next moment, I will sit outside my balcony and ponder on what life truly is. The wayward mind is often at crossroads, but then I trod the path that suits the mood. Being with too many friends who have relationship woes, I am now a pro at helping people sort out the mess life often becomes.
