This Summer, No Bummer- How To Keep it Casual yet Trendy?

HELLO! Drunken youth. Summer has just begun & my MIA on this handle just halted. While everyone’s busy keeping up their ass hydrated from the scorching heat, I’m on a quest these days shooting for new stories while trying to get along with the hectic college life & of course a bunch of other dramas which goes without saying.

Starting off! The idea behind these 2 looks is ease, comfort & keeping it minimal for everyday wandering.

Look 1: Military Greens 

Trend spotted: Relaxed fit

From military uniforms to high-fashion runways, olive green has indeed come a long way. We have seen more and more brands adopt this colour not just in clothing but in various other categories as well as footwear, bags, jewellery, and even home furnishing. As aptly quoted by the goddess Miranda Priestly, floral for spring is way too mainstream & hence bringing some camo utility in action.

IMG_0086_Facetune_14-04-2018-18-52-41

Paired with green ankled trousers, giving camouflage vibes while stretchability adding a dose of comfort to the whole look.

Sneakers- Obtrusive, loud, flashy & so damn fancy. Recently got these beauts in silver from Koovs apart from the shimmery golden ones which you might have seen in my previous stories. And guess what!? They have little LEDs too, literally so lit.

Outfit: Westside

Shop the look : http://www.mywestside.com 

Related Accessories: Sunglasses: Coolwinks. Sneakers: Koovs.

Look 2- The Mechanic

A little smaller than a jumper, bigger than a romper. By whatsoever name you’d like to call it, totally up to you. What I can assure you is that this piece of absolute charmer is captivating, eye catching & like I mentioned earlier, comfortable af.

Whether you’re dressing for a causal day or an evening out with your friends, it’ll definitely make you the”IT” guy at every occasion, standing out among the crowd.

IMG_0826_Facetune_15-04-2018-18-16-15

Teaming up with these new Adidas originals kicks, being the perfect addition to the look. Giving it a very laid-back & relaxed overlook.

Quick tip: Over a period of time when everyone’s done checking out your new romper/jumper & now it’s not new anymore! You don’t have to worry, I’ve got you covered.

You can actually pair it with a solid coloured t-shirt & boom! You’ve got a new outfit. Just like this: 1. A t-shirt over it. 2. Open it till your waist & keep it hanging.

How To Slay: White on White Outfits- Everything You Should Know About The Trend

No matter how hard it is keep the whites white, we still end up stocking up our wardrobe with them. And even though black will forever be more dominant & endeared or whatever, White. is. timeless.

IMG_6583_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-32-45

Hola drunkards! Hope you guys are doped. A very happy new year to each one of you (for the new readers) While I had an amazing year-end bash & began 2018 with purple haze (Click here if you don’t know what I’m talking about). I’m still struggling to balance out my new city life. With no time to catch even a single breath, I thought why not serve you guys with a quick dose of quirkiness.

IMG_6584_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-33-56

The most minimalistic way to street style is to play with monochromes but where’s the fun in that? After a while it becomes dull & dry as dust. Hence to make it more stimulating & oppose the force, I created this look. Chic, snazzy & yet comfortable. Thoughtfully using the stand out elements, making the outfit more distinctive because devil’s in the details, right? Have a look: 

IMG_6579_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-30-37

Top: Boxy fit sweatshirt with round neckline & extended sleeves

From slim fits to the worst skinny fits, we’ve seen it all & currently the wide loose fit is getting its due attention. It adds volume to the outfit & at the same time doesn’t suffocate you to death.

Things to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure everything else is fitted when you’re rocking a relaxed-fit apparel, otherwise you might end looking wacky!
  2. Say no to baggy pants, they’re too scruffy for this t-shirt.
  3. Keep it casual to balance out. Still confused? tuck it in.
  4. Try pairing it with an unstructured jacket if you wanna go EXTRAA.

IMG_6581_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-31-16

Made with cotton, this piece is perfect for the unpredictable weather conditions as well. Not too thin & not too warm, either.

Sweatshirt- Koovs Fashion

Creating a contrast:

To heft up the lower part- The wider silhouette is complimented with the boots, alternatively you can try a pair of sneakers with round toes.

Avoid: Pointy, narrow shoes & sporty kicks.

IMG_6587_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-36-43

Accessories:

A wide brim, pinched crown fedora

For:

  1. Enhancing the outfit, drawing attention towards it.
  2. Perfect for the bad hair days.
  3. Protects you from rain, cold etc. (Ugh! like you didn’t know)

IMG_6585_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-34-20

 

Tip: Be very careful while pairing up this beaut. When done wrong, it can look tacky af. but hey! who gives a fuck? TRY.

Fedora- Forever 21

Sling bag: Jabong India, Boots: Timberland

IMG_6577_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-29-01

Metal brim round sunglasses:

Sporting it everywhere! Driving, running, styling, biking.  No, not biking. I don’t own a bike but you see the point, right!? Courtesy: coolwinks

Bottom:

White shorts (Slim fit, raw edge, elasticated waist). You can try a fitted white trouser as a substitute. Whatever suits you! I like to summer-fy everything I see.

IMG_6586_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-35-55

 

Currently trending, white on white is most elegant way to turn heads around. Easy to carry with finesse. Also pocket friendly! A white t-shirt & a trouser doesn’t cost a dime & the same time there’re infinite ways to slay them. Everyday you can create a new look with the same piece of clothing.

IMG_6578_Facetune_21-01-2018-19-38-28

 

Shorts: Forever 21

Coming to the end of today’s story I’d like to fill up your mind up with verve. Please don’t keep yourself away from trying new things. Not only just clothes but everything you urge to strive. If you think it’s right for you, chances are it is. If it goes wrong! Well, own it & learn from it.

The Wedding Collection ’17 – Season Special

This is a shoutout to all the overly dressed, emotional, high strung & hyper aunties, always up for an interrogation/ rapid fire round whenever they bump into us. “Beta shaadi ho gayi aapke? ” “Acha salary kitne hai?” & to all the brainsick, maniacal uncles intoxicated with alcohol, constantly comparing you with their sons but too drunk to notice that their pants are slowly sliding down. Haha yes! The wedding season has barged in & I’m talking about a big fat punjabi wedding where everybody just loves to create a scene. Disputes emerging everywhere, literally from paneer tikka to ‘Dulhan ka fancy lehga‘.

IMG_5577_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-28

Hello drunkards! How have you been? Hope y’all having fun unlike this boy who has been sucked off to the last drop by his new city life. Who said college is fun? Ugh! Anyway! It’s that time of the year again when girls cut down on calories & boys do extra flexing, to look extraaa at their friend’s or cousin’s wedding, tantalising everyone around them!

IMG_5572_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-39-42

 

And so if you’re planning to attend a wedding this year, you just can’t afford to skip reading this story. Period. (YES! READ THE FUCK UP, DON’T YOU DARE SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES)

IMG_5573_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-39-59

As we grow up, we tend to hate going to these mocked up ceremonies created by our heteronormative society but hey! At the same time we can’t say no to our mum either, asking us to accompany & tag along with her. Hence, it’s better if you go, you bring out the A game.

Indian Wedding Season 2017Hottest New Trends

  1. Colors are making a comeback!– Yay! Enough with all the minimalism, pastel & all-white weddings.
  2. Technology stepping in– You won’t believe the other day I spent 4 hours watching a live-stream wedding on Instagram. Now if that’s not futuristic, I don’t know what is.
  3. Bride with Aviators & sneakers– Umm. Okay!! Quickly moving on…
  4. Day time weddings– Even in Delhi, Yes. Why? I. You can do so much more with the décor. II. Budget booster! You save money on booking the venue.
  5. E- invites, destination wedding venues, pre wedding shoots & more.

IMG_5575_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-40-27

Wedding AttireWhether to Buy or Rent?

Decisions, decisions! You can either own it or lease it. The former might give you short term satisfaction but would definitely cost an arm & a leg, the latter won’t. My tip is: Contemplate & then make your move. Either way, it depends on you. Come to a decision after considering all the factors such as your budget, purpose, season etc.

IMG_5576_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-04

There are plenty of amazing platforms available online if you plan to rent your outfit.

Pros: You don’t have to struggle much to find out the right garment, easy delivery system, multiple options, haute couture, designer wear under your budget.

Cons: Fittings (though they’re options available to fix it according to your size), Internet can be unreliable at times but so can be your favourite tailor.

IMG_5578_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-41-50

 

About the look:

 

IMG_5574_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-40-12

This navy blue dupion silk sherwani is definitely an exemplary choice throwing all the newly wed vibes. Elaborated heavily with all-over golden jaal embroidery and murky buttons. It’s paired up with golden dupion silk chudidar which can be worn as another outfit if you wish to reduce the burden of heavy layers.

How to make the right choice while renting out?

There’s always an option to return back, so chill! Take a deep breath & follow these simple rules:

  1. Quality is non-negotiable: Make sure the fabric doesn’t look tawdry & tacky.
  2. Do not procrastinate: Start scrolling though the web so that you have time to fix things up, even in the worst case scenarios.
  3. Going over the board: Yes, you may! Experiment & explore, it’s a fucking wedding after all.
  4. Wedding type: Day or night, indoor or outdoor, location, etc. Keeping all these things in mind. You won’t want to look like a shiny furry ball in the day time or wear something dull & unilluminating at night, unless that’s your ‘thang’. No, please! Try not to do that.

IMG_5579_Facetune_24-11-2017-17-42-11

Kurta & chudidar: Perfect for the never ending, add on occasions such as Mehndi, Sangeet & so many more.

Pseudo Lookbook- Amazon India Fashion Week Spring/Summer’18

Camera’s clicking, models on runway unruffled with those designer wear, trying to channelize their alter ego as if gaga whispering into their ear saying, “Walk – walk fashion baby, work it move that bitch crazy”.

Why that reference in particular if you may ask? Well, I couldn’t make it to the Amazon India Fashion Week SS18 which we fashion junkies look forward to attend & be spell bound by flamboyant designs that elevate our sense of existence, as I was caught up muddling through my new city life. But hey! That didn’t stop me from dressing up & embracing aesthetically appealing outfits! Just like last season, making an impact. Remember, NO? ( Link to AIFWAW17Lookbook- Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2017 )

IMG_4630

Hello drunkards! I know it has been a sad century & so I thought why not serve you guys a fresh hell & lit you up with something exceptional. Here I am, your boy with 2 new pseudo looks for the fashion week. If I would’ve gone I would’ve slayed only for 2 days & not more. Why? because it’s tiring af to scrape by all the 5 days, tbh. Too much whining, yeah? Let the glam begin!

Pseudo Day 1

Look I

IMG_4628

This outfit is from a collection called Samudra Manthan which is one of the well-known episodes of the Hindu mythology of obtaining 14 valuables that were sunk in the ocean, the story behind it is used in symbolic form where the fabrics play a key role is representing the elements of the story. The integration of the design and fabric in abstraction has turned out to be something you’d desire to wear at such an event being at your best, keeping your A game on & feeling not just fabulous but phenomenal.

IMG_4819

The ensemble is so utterly experimental that it definitely catches the eye & make heads turn. It lures you to try it on and wear it down the god damn red carpet & pose for those camera’s flashing! Also this piece is not just about an appearance shot but rather about you, making a statement for everyone to begin questioning their choices.

Footwear: Aldo

IMG_4820

Designer: Jubinav Chadha

Pseudo Day 2

Look II

IMG_4815

The event is all about expressing your sense of style and individuality in a way one would perceive you to be like that fresh breath of air that blew Marilyn Monroe’s skirt and she still had to put on a smile trying to hold it down, which is now an iconic pose. Similarly, the fabric and outfit is not always that easy to carry off but the trick is to smile and have fun while you flaunt it!

IMG_4816

Be fearless to carry this wherever you go, the designs are made in such a way they uplifts one’s spirit, boosting a person’s self-esteem to not give a “two fux” about what one has to criticize. They’re carefully designed for a modern man who dares to break the stereotypical pre-conceived notions & institute a quirky look for one to be remembered. So, take the chance to explore the suave you, be it a party or a social event.

IMG_4817

Quickly coming to the end of this story & keeping it a brief encounter because I’ll rather shut my blabber mouth down than to ruin the aesthetics by over explaining things, here. To all those who missed me at the event, I truly appreciate your affection & I absofuckinlutely adore you guys & those who didn’t, I love you peeps too! Keeping the hopes high, you’d certainly see me in the next season or I tend to show up in some or the other jazzy event anyway. Until then keep tuning through social media handles where I try & reply to all the relevant texts as much as I can.

IMG_4818

Do keep a track of my Instagram feeds, they’re booming. Stories, snaps & live feeds for everyday fashion tips & to have a glimpse of my hidden personal life (not so personal anymore). Feel free to write your opinion/suggestions in the comment section below.

How to: Avoid Looking Like A Dad While Wearing Daddy’s Clothes? – This Festive Season

How many of your hoe friends got married this year? How many of you single asses were completely clueless about clothes you wore for a friend’s wedding? Certainly, you must’ve seen guys making a fool outta themselves at a Punjabi wedding. Just can’t go without noticing them, can you? No, this breed is one of its kind. Picking up clothes from your dad’s closet is cool but not when you wear his XXL Shaadi ka kurta with embroidery all over. And why to drag only boys here? We all have that one distant cousin who shows up wearing a hot pink Lehga & dances on Bole chudiyan, Bole kangana. Every. Freaking. Time.

DSC_5492

 

Almost after a month, my MIA might’ve given you a reason to forget me or let’s pretend that some of you actually missed me. Either way you don’t have choice to neglect your boy now.

Hello, hipsters. Hope I didn’t keep y’all sober for long. Keeping in mind the festive feels & your inaccurate wardrobe choices, I’m here with yet another story. And though rarely, we’re going basic this time.

DSC_5478
Let me quickly point out some FAQs you ask your conscious/bff around festivals & ceremonies:

  • The time was too less to get a tailored suit, what should I wear now?
  •  I wanna stand out & look dapper at the same time, what should I do?
  • Everyone I have ever known will be there at the party, how should I step up?

Trying hard not to generalize, I’ve got most of the answers in today’s outfit.
The rule is simple: “If you’re not the groom, it’s not your day to bloom” – Getting it? No? Keep reading.

dsc_5498.jpg

I personally hate when someone says you should dress according to the occasion. I mean why can’t we just wear the fuck we want? Well, no matter how willingly I’d like to disagree to this, sometimes we can’t. For instance, think of your bride wearing a bikini for her wedding (I’m totally up for it btw, fuck stereotypes) or you going to the office wearing nothing but your boxers (can’t do this unless you’re on coke). My point being here is to dress well & according to the event.

How often do you rob your dad’s closet? If you ask me, I don’t even leave my mum’s. Where’s the lie?
The trick is to know how to balance vintage with current trends. You can literally wear anything from their closet & blend it to make it look either quirky or classic.

DSC_5480

Here’re some guidelines which might help:

  • Choose the right apparel & take tips from your dad/mom on how to pull it off. They know more than you think they know.
  •  Size: It matters. You can surely rock a daddy jean or his longline shirt but not his suits before customizing it to your body type. For fuck sake, no.
  •  Try using different accessories if the outfit seems to be dull or boring.

DSC_5510

 

Coming to the details I’m wearing a Mandarin Collared, Blue Velvet Bandi (read as Nehru/Modi Jacket) which is vintage af. It is the minimalist fashion of late 60s & early 70s. Even before kicking off its market in Europe & America, it became supremely popular in India in 1940s as “band gale ka coat” And boy! Look how phenomenal it has come out to be.

 

DSC_5496

Bandi: Incense, New Delhi. ₹2450/-

KEEPING IT BASIC/ MINIMALISTIC

Too much jazz sometime creates mess. Hence giving all the attention to the prime element & realising the importance of giving a break to your artistic self. It’s better to KISS (KEEPING IT SIMPLE SILLY) at times.

TopWhite Henley– To make the jacket more prominent, try avoiding prints & other bright coloured t shirts or shirts.
(₹899 /-) H&M

DSC_5495

 

Bottom– Ripped, skinny & flawless. Just like your soul. (₹2990/-) H&M

White Sneakers- Keeping a ritual of brushing them every weekend. Though widely exploited & not my first choice but still apt for the look. Zara (₹3990/-)

Related Accessories:
SunglassesMarc Jacobs- To make sure he realises that you’re ignoring him.
Nail paints– All day, everyday. Why the fuck not?

DSC_5475

With this, we’re almost at the end. Hell! Wait. Did I tell you why I took a while to write this story? To those who don’t know, my life has flipped drastically, for good. As if god thinks my life is a pancake which he can flip whenever he wants. It includes settling up in a new city for a while, making a new network, changing weather conditions & other chores. Know more on Snapchat where I rant every now & then (Snap: akshayeee)

Trend spotted: Velvet

IMPORTANT: I’m gonna be coming up with more startling stories which are in process already. Meanwhile, making sure that you get enough fodder on Instagram, I tend to feed you guys with dazzling OOTDs, WIWs & more. Check.

Slay this festive season & if there’s anything you’d like to share, feel free to write down in the comment section below.

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.
XXJO6883
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.
IMG_1762
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.
FullSizeRender (6)

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.
SIXL9389
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. 
JXVG9296
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.
MQVV7529


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 :

NSJG4445

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.

PFQH9675

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)

LXMU1604


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.

Quirky Cunts: 4 New hip kicks.

This is to all the tender- hearted, compassionate lovers out there. Get out of the shirk immediately if he tells you to slow down on fries or if she only uses you for a new cologne. Would you wanna spend another second with that person? Certainly no. Also It’s 2017 no one should judge you if you’re dark skinned or too pale, asexual or with a sex tape. Thin or thick booties, they are to be worshipped equally, Right? Rule #69 of How to piss off temporary people in your life? says pizza is above all fuckboys. And then he’s not your dad, so stop entertaining his calls when he tries to impose his passion on you. Or when she just wanna do unnecessary baby talks at night after a long day at the shopping mall. Ugh! Why roam around with emotional baggage? Fuckboys are just like parasites, they feed on your weaknesses & hey don’t get me wrong I’m all for everlasting love & always have been a fitness preacher. But it’s important to know the difference between constructive criticism & plain bullshitting. No matter how much I refrain myself from meeting such people, god bombards these self proclaimed fitness models one after another in my life. Quick personal mention! So I met this person last week who I thought would be super chivalrous & intellectual but FML he turned out to be a silent cry for help. Yes! He suffered from this thing called the “douche bag syndrome” Basically improper drainage system in his mind, full of shit opinions & judgmental thoughts.

img_0631

 

As you can guess from the title, this week I’m gonna help you guys to slightly quirk things up! Well actually a lot.

Filling up with new trends & definitely stepping up your outfit game.

QUIRKY KICK 1:

CROP-TOPS FOR MEN.

img_0076

The crop top movement has existed since 1970s. Mathew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Mark Wahlberg, Will Smith, Johny Depp are just few examples of men who broke the stereotype “dudes don’t wear crop tops”

Well wear whatever the fuck your heart says & your ass approves. Here’s my attempt & contribution.

Crop-top: Uptown18

Denim- Levis, Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs.

Pair up the slogan crop tops with your favourite pair of denims & possibly a leather jacket if the cold persists.

img_0624

Duffel Bag: Hidesign

QUIRKY KICK 2:

METALLIC PALAZZOS.

img_0629

Palazzos prominently came into trend around 1960s & 70s. Flared out evenly from waist, palazzos are undeniably comfortable & surely trending back. Don’t even care if they weren’t. This beautiful metallic thing is eye catchy & quirky enough to dazzle up your whole look. And it becomes even more special when a man is roaming around wearing this on the streets full of basic people.

Pledge to never dress up sober.

img_0485

 

Palazzo: Koovs

Bomber jacket goes perfectly with this look. Also everything’s fair for the sake of fashion but I try not to fall sick deliberately when the weather is so fucking cruel outside.

Bomber: Zara

Sneakers, nothing else. Okay? Okay.

img_0632

Sneakers: H&M.

QUIRKY KICK 3:

PAINT IT YELLOW!

img_0135

Slay tee- Uptown18, Ripped shorts: H&M.

Lately I’ve been getting  compliments like ” yellow is definitely your colour” Do I look cute in yellow? Idk because someone said the same thing about red when the Christmas post came out. Also if you noticed Yellow was so prominent at The Golden Globes this year.

I definitely love experimenting with colours. So back in the days when I was around 14/15 with hell lot of insecurities & acne of course. I used to think I look so fucking fat in bright colours like yellow or red or even white. Few years later, I ended up wearing the same bright colours, not thinking of how fat or thin I look. Inspiring enough? No. okay.

LIGHT UP TRAINERS

img_0637

This is by far the dopest thing I have ever had in my life. No seriously! This is an investment bruh. So now every time I go to a club, I can literally lit up the whole damn place. Aren’t these the coolest? Screaming beauties, you can’t keep calm after wearing these trainers. And pocket friendly? Absofuckinglutely.

Trainers: Koovs

2017 has just started, be strong.Try not to repeat the same mistakes. It’s important to learn your lessons. But even then something happens? Drink up! Listen to Ariana Grande & chill the fuck up.

Hawaiian Hallucination- 4 Dreams Straight Outta Closet.

Have you ever been so mad at someone that you wanna whack the shit out of that person? It doesn’t necessarily have to be your love interest. You know what life is like your favourite t-shirt. And no matter how much take care, it gets dirty. All you need is a sturdy detergent to clean it & bring back the freshness. Yeah I’ve this weird habit of comparing everything with clothes. Well, someone out there must be thinking that this guy utters complete nonsense. Well pardon my manners but I give zero fucks to that. Carrying on, here I’m talking about mental health, anger & its allied emotions.

It’s like a washing cycle. After you’ve cleaned your t-shirt (life), have taken out the dirt (negativity), it’s still un-ironed. People around us & their vibes help in ironing our thoughts. And then all we need is a comforter which blossoms everything (probably your best friend). Times come where either we can lose our temper & lash out (which would be temporarily satisfying but consequential) or we can leave that for karma. Sooner or later you’ll realise that everything is temporary & so is pain & anger. Keeping it inside your mind is just poisonous. It won’t make the situation any better but will surely burn everything good which has left inside of you.

Wait! meanwhile you analyse what I just said, lemme show you guys something sensational I’ve been working on. Giving out my four Hawaiian dreams that I’d like to share with you. Here they go:

Dream 1:  I’m somewhere in a middle of a street that I don’t recognise. Walking alone then sitting on the roadside, lost & absent minded. I’m suffering through this pleasant agony which is difficult to express.

Come again- Whips, cuffs & suspenders (2/2)

Buy branded clothes, strike a pose, use the hashtag #fashionblogger and there you go. Congratulations you’re a blogger. HELL to the FUCKIN’ NO. Buy new clothes, you lose perspective. As a student, I get a certain amount of pocket money which I’ve to utilize for everything including my extravaganza expenses. And like each one of you, I find myself completely broke at the end of the month.
optimized-img_1605
If you think I wear new clothes every week on my blog posts, good for me but you haven’t been paying attention. I’m amused to find different ways to re-use the same piece of clothing, get creative & bring out something distinctive & quirky. After all these years of living alone & managing my routine in this city, I’ve somehow learnt to balance things. No doubt, I fuck up every time I see something I believe is only made for me, a t-shirt or a pair of stunning shoes.
And obviously I’m hopelessly single & have no one who would buy me all things I fantasize. haha.
No worries, let’s take an oath to work towards it & get all the sassy stuff which we dream of.
img_2965
My emphasis has always been on affordable fashion. Clothes which people like you & me can actually pay for. Oh & even the nominal amount of money I get though my assignments, I splash it out on NSS.
This week’s outfit is the second instalment to my previous post, in case you did not know.

The 2nd look. More causal , less messy & can be easily pulled off with your favourite coloured t shirt & your same old amazing pair of suspenders.

In case it isn’t obvious, I love the color blue. There comes a time in your life where you’ve to choose between black or white. I look for the blue linings in the sky. If that makes sense to you. Haha. I managed to pair this cute little blue thing with the suspenders & it totally worked out.

Shorts: Forever 21

Things to remember:

Don’t try too hard & play subtle with suspenders. A plain white t shirt or a shirt will completely compliment your look.
As said earlier in case of printed or multi coloured suspenders, try to balance the look with solid coloured tops.
Never mix too many patterns.

Accessorise with your favourite set of jewellery. For me, it happens to be this blinky owl locket, snatched from the most dopest friend of mine. She’s a dude. Haha.
Also I’ve seen people considering a taboo to wear a belt with suspenders. Well that’s a myth. There’s are hundreds of ramp shows where models have rocked it. One thing you should know, fashion is subjective & has no limits.

T-shirt: Forever 21

As mentioned in my previous post, I ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY HATE those white sneakers from Koovs. They’re uncomfortable, biting & a complete disgrace. I hate you Koovs for doing this to one of your valuable customer. If you’re seeing this, for heaven’s sake please improve your after sale services.
img_2794
You can look utterly disastrous wearing with the most expensive brands & you can slay even with the rug you thrifted last summer. Trashy or Flashy, it entirely depends on you.
As for now, I can only vouch for myself. I’m that kind of person who either wears the same old wrecked t shirt on every day of the week or slays with 4 different outfits in a day.
I’m unpredictable & I guess that’s what fashion is to me.
Tell me what does it mean to you? In comment section below.

Got laid parade- Monochromatic orgasm

DISCLAIMER: This article includes sex & liquor references. People who get offended by hearing the word Vagina, can kindly refrain themselves from reading ahead.

img_2833

Inspired by true events, this is a simple story of two horny homo-sapiens who wanted to fuck each other badly & ended up falling for each other.
Why am I writing this? – 1. Sex is empowering. 2. To introduce you guys to today’s outfit in a non run-of-the-mill way 3. Because I can.
img_2822

On a cold winter’s night, there was a girl standing outside a pub, waiting for her cab to arrive. Fully sloshed, wearing a little black dress with sky high heels in which she could hardly walk. Little did she know that she was about to experience something so arousing. A guy standing few feet away was gazing at her from round the corner.
Tia was too drunk to notice that everyone was staring at her including the bar bouncers & chauffeurs.
“Damn it! Bastard cancelled the trip” she yelped. After a while when she couldn’t bare to stand in those biting heels anymore, she decided to sit down on the road. The guy was observing her, mostly out of concern. After almost 20 minutes of looking at her struggling to get a ride back home, he approached her.
“Hey Tia. You alright? “ he said.

Confused, she mumbled “Do I know you? How you know my name?”

We were in the same theatre group at college, obviously you don’t recognise me, do you?” Karan said.
– “To be honest, I really don’t.” she replied
No worries, I can go away right now but I think you need to get back home, it’s 3:30 am.” He said.
– “Oh fuck! it’s 3:30? Fuck She won’t let me enter & she’d call my mother, bitch!”
Woah chill! Who?
– “The cousin I live with. Shit! I shouldn’t have had those extra shots, I’m so wrecked”
“Stop! It’s okay. Can I drop you to a friend’s place or somewhere”
– I tried calling em. No one’s in the town. Fuck my life!
“Stop cussing, you can crash into my apartment if that’s okay with you, it’s just few blocks away”
– “I..I don’t..think..that’s..”
It’s alright. Trust me.

________________

Everything’s real & has happened except the revised names. They’re two of my great friends & that’s how they met for the first time.
I’ll carry on with the tale & simultaneously bring you guys a total different approach on how you make a fashion statement with your plain white shirt.

img_2749

Shirt: Blackberrys
There’s nothing more comforting than a perfectly tailored shirt. But for how long you gonna be stuck in your comfort zone? Today after office, get your inner dapper out & be ready to party, wearing the same shirt with suspenders.
If you have printed or checked suspenders, try pairing them with a solid coloured shirt.

img_2829
Leather Belt: Levis
How many times you were almost choked to death on an event wearing a bow tie?
Well! I give you guys a less sweaty & a more funky way to wear your favourite bow tie. As a choker.
Yes, it’ll still stick to your throat but with a little less trouble.
Try experimenting as chokers are booming this season.

Bow tie- Koovs, Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs

Continued in brief..

As soon as they reached the apartment, she was totally out blacked out. He almost had to carry her to the bed & tuck her in a quilt.
Next morning, she woke up with a bad headache & after a while she realised she’s sleeping right next to a total stranger.
In the same breath, she jumped off the bed, wrote a note with her number on it, put it on the table & vanished away.
Later at night *Screen flashes*
Text from Karan-
“I know, you know.”

-about what?

Text 2-“That I’m not the guy from your college theatre group”

– Well I knew.
Text 3-“Didn’t even know your name until I saw your college ID which had fallen off your bag.”
– Oh how smart of you? 🙂 But figured that out as well.

Text 4-“Can we meet tomorrow?
– Maybe. 🙂

First date at a coffee shop:

You look terrible” he said
– So do you Mr. Predator

Oh as if you didn’t wanna do things that actually happened that night” he winked
– I didn’t say that. she smirked.

I like you” he said.
– Cliché. But I like you too.

Do you mind if we grab a bottle of wine & try to re-live the moment?
– “That won’t be a terrible idea though.” She said

___________________________

Look at those little polka dots hovering over the black trouser. With their perfect fit, they’d go even with a simple v neck t-shirt. Totally worth the buy.

img_2747

Trousers- Forever 21

White sneakers- Koovs– Honestly, they aren’t great at all. Not comfortable & crafted with bad quality material. My love for Koovs is eternal but they need to work on their after sale services & product quality assurance.

Anyway to sum up, it’s been 6 months these two love birds having been fucking each other. Haha. Who knew that they would dating? It could have been just another sex date, overrated & readily available. Hope some of your got inspired by their short dramatic first meet story.
Also I’ve to mention that my motive is not encourage you guys to get drunk & stay over with a stranger.Hell No! Get that straight. All I want to say is that you can’t plan when you’re going to find your match. Wonderful things happen in their own time. You just gotta have patience & stars will do their magic tricks.

I’ll be featuring the second look from the series, next week. If you guys have anything you’d want to share, feel free to write in the comment section below.

Stay tuned & keep dreaming
