DIY Summer’17- Cold Shoulders For Men.

Tried & tested! Here’s a summer tip for my fancy boys & dainty girls: not even the most expensive sunscreen can protect your sweet soft skin from being sautéed. Bitter truth, yes. Setting down, get a snack, your boy has got a solution for this mess. Continue to read the article you sloths rather than just looking at the pictures.

I always crib & I know you too, when you have to put your winter clothes back in the deepest section of your closets. The worst situation is when you had shopped the new winter collection but you can’t wear it because now it’s too hot to wear those beauts outside. Dishearteningly, you have to put them back until the next cold breeze knocks your gut.

I’m talking about abstaining to expose your skin to the sun, directly. Now I’m not saying you to be nocturnal like me & get out of the house only at night (I do that a lot, it’s pleasant). I’m advising you to cover up your body parts when you go out. It’s good to hang around in tank tops & shorts when you’re in a mall or any closed, central air conditioned area but at places where your skin is directly exposed to sunlight, refrain yourself from wearing such clothes.

Can I vent out my anger for a moment?- We humans are mean bastards, we have fucked the nature & now it’s Mama Nature’s way to take her revenge. Get out of your comfort zone you twats & start making up for it.

You must be like “Look, who’s talking? Guy probably has all the privileges & now peaching us eco-shit” Yes & no. I do my part, you better do yours. That’s the only way how it’s going to work. Otherwise you know we’re already doomed.

Anyway today we are experimenting, stepping a level higher. How about cold shoulder cardigans for summer? Well you’re just a DIY away from experiencing this cool trend. If you’ve doubts, I’m here to clear em by showing you guys that men can also slay these dope shrugs.
Cold Shoulder Cardigans/Shirts--Why in summers? Because even when you got an umbrella with you, the sun is still going to fry you up. Don’t believe me, step outside. The only way out is to cover yourself up & when you’re back under a shed, take em off.

DIY-

Take any old shirt (preferably boyfriend shirts), fold it equally by the sleeves & cut out the lower end near the shoulders in a circular manner. Yeah! It’s that simple.
I’ve made dozens of these using my dad’s old shirt, my mum’s old cardigan & my sister’s old jacket.
Though I got this readymade cold shoulder shrug from koovs, supremely soft & hella affordable.

AGATE STONE BROOCH :

Agate stones are hypnotically mesmerising & are found in almost every colour, each one having different layers & pattern attached to it.
The artisans use it to make ornaments such as pins, brooches or other types of jewellery, paper knives, inkstands, marbles and seals. Agate is also used for decorative displays, cabochons, beads, carvings and Intarsia art as well as face-polished and tumble-polished specimens.

Gladly, I got this stunning piece of art from A’men Menswear on one of their preview events. And boy! Brooches never looked prettier than before.

DIY- Old T-shirt

Correct me if I’m wrong but your closet is full of old, wrecked t-shirts which you don’t wear anymore. And even if you’ve given a few of em away to charity, you still own a lot of them. Well here’s an idea, what if you can wear each one of em in a different style & look completely kickass.

I had this t-shirt with me for almost a decade (with a weird looking guy printed on it) which is now a vest. Thanks to my tremendously sharp scissors which hey! Btw my mom hates & would toss it away in the garbage if she ever has a chance. Why? Because her son is a crazy cloth ripper who cuts almost everything in his wardrobe.

Also hey! Happy Mother’s Day (day I’m writing this article)

I have tied a knot on the back of my neck by taking both sides of vest to give an avant garde touch to the outfit, which also makes it a complexed crop top.

You know that moment when you’re mad but you really don’t know why? Because
your feelings are so fucking blended. Everything’s jumbled up, even your emotions. No matter how hard you try to suppress, it vents out sooner or later. And the longer the suppression, the worse is the mental breakdown. I feel our minds are like unbreakable balloons & when they get filled up, more than their capacity, they explode. Getting me? No. Okay. All I’m trying to say Read More

Lookbook- Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2017

A constant fear of smudging up the lipstick you’re wearing for the first time. Never knew it’d be a gruelling task to control sneezing when down with cold & no idea of how to chomp a burger without ruining everything…

Survivor of the wilds

They’re the ones who weren’t born to live under a concrete roof because they felt contented when lost in the woods. They found utmost peace in solitude & ease in an empty room. Books became their friends when everybody refused to play with them. They were harmless but were loathed by others, mostly for the way they looked & expressed themselves.

What exactly differentiate demons from angels? Their appearance or actions? There’s an imaginary chip which has been forcefully fitted in our minds telling us what’s right & what’s not. We look at a person, scan him, match him with the database stored & if he passes the evaluation, we move ahead. You think that’s how the world works but who exactly lead down the norms of a perfect world?

He was one of them. It took him a lot of time & gazillion of hurdles to realize that he wasn’t defined by the way they looked at him. Things started to change just when he made peace with his soul. He stopped walking with his head held down, covering up things which made him look different.

The ‘normal’ human beings were astounded. The conservatives who weren’t able to understand the complexity, revolted. Some of them stayed dormant & others stood up against the inhumanity. It wasn’t much complicated as it seemed, they were just common people born differently.
optimized-img_2974
They constantly tried to explain the fact that that they couldn’t help with the way they were destined to born & that they just wanted to be treated equally. They didn’t want to be victimised nor they wanted to be used as pawns in the bitter world.
For a long time they wore a mask to hide their divergences. They were frightened that they would be segregated from the rest of the world. They felt too much.
But what happens when you try to fill a glass with water more than it’s capacity to contain? It pours out. They were filled up with such strong emotions and the bomb inside was ready to explode.

They pleaded for a safe place. A place where they could breathe without being afraid. Their existence mattered, it was their right.

They were relentless.
