So, I might be a shoeaholic?!

My dad made me do this yesterday. I feel a little bit bad after having seen my whole collection, especially the fact that I know that at least 6 pairs of shoes are missing from what you can already see! I’ve also thrown quite a lot of shoes away as well over the past few months, but as my dad quite rightly said, no one needs that many shoes. What do you guys think? Do I have a problem?

Day 26/30: Lazy Friday Post

Yay! I’ve caught up with my posts :) This one is going to be a bit of a lazy one and hopefully a treat for some of the girlies who follow this blog. I don’t how many of you have read the story about a group of men who were told to leave Saudi Arabia […]

Day 15/30: Bath in Fashion 2013

I don’t really know how I missed this, but for the past 3 years Bath have been holding a fashion week?!For those of you based in and around the west country and who take a keen interest in fashion this week sees Bath holding it’s 4th annual fashion week. One of the highlights includes a photographic exhibition at the Octagon, Mouvements de Femmes: Norman Parkinson by Roland Mouret. Yeah, you heard me right! Also it’s free :).  So if you have an hour or two to spare and are in the area, then head down and have a look at what’s on offer. There are workshops, pop up shops, exhibitions including 50 Fabulous Frocks and Art in Fashion. Bath in Fashion is on until 21st April.

Day 9/30: Seriously H&M?! £199.99??!!!

H&M Jacket

I saw this the other day whilst I was browsing online on H&M. I like it, it’s unique, but the £199.99 price tag for H&M?! It’s not even part of on of their designer collaborations. Could you really justify spending £199.99 on bog standard H&M? It just seems slightly excessive to me. Luckily I was having a browse at some of the blogs I follow and luckily a few others share a similar sentiment regarding the price.

Anyway that’s all from me for now. It’s bedtime. I shall carry on bombarding you all tomorrow ;)

Day 8/30: INDIA!!

I guess you guys all thought that this was going to be a post about my recent travels. Sorry to disappoint! Being Indian and all, I’m a bit of a stereotypical cricket buff, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy matches that are being held in UK this year.

I was trying to get my hands on the much-coveted India vs. Pakistan tickets, however sadly they sold out before I even got into the ticket portal, so I’m having to make do with India vs. South Africa. Not my top choice, however I can’t really complain about seeing the motherland playing a spot of cricket on British soil.

I know the match is a while away, but I’m not the kind of girl to miss an opportunity to wear flag themed attire!

So, me being me, I got a little excited and started googling Indian flag themed dresses. Can you believe that on Google images there is only one dress? It’s not like the Union Jack or the Stars and Stripes, where you can get a range of themed attire. This got me wondering why is this the case and whether it was a cultural thing, so me being the geek that I am I decided to investigate the assistance of detective Google. There’s flag code of India, which is a set of laws that govern the use of the Indian flag!  Bet you guys didn’t know that! There’s a list of  how you can and can’t use the Indian flag! One of the rules is that you are not allowed to wear the flag on clothing that sits below the waist, so no Indian flag themed shorts for me :(.

Anyway it encouraged me to get my creative side out and try and design my own Indian flag themed dress. Yep that’s right, I haven’t sewn anything since my year 9 school days, but that’s right, you’ve heard it, I’m going to design and sew a dress myself and a mighty fine dress it’ll be!!

I can’t decide whether I just have too much time on my hands, whether I’m trying to explore other interests/hobbies or whether this inspiration has come from the complete lack of Indian flag themed attire. I’ve decided to draw some inspiration from current Union Jack themed dresses and am in the process of drawing out various designs! Obviously me being the goody that I am, I’m not going to disrespect the flag rules! Anyway have a gander at these Union Jack dresses that I’m using as inspiration.

Day 3/30: Aren’t these like the coolest earrings ever?!

So we all know that I’m a self confessed geek. Yeah, when I was a kid I wasn’t one of these kids that wanted to be a cutesy wutesy vet or a hairdresser or a model. No. I wanted to be a palaeontologist, like Ross from friends, or an astronaut or a scientist. There was even a point when I was seven, when I wanted to be a Da Vinci equiavlent. I was a pretty, mighty ambitious 7 year old!! For some reason unbeknown to myself, I’ve taken a slight diversion from my ambitious, intellectual journey and spend more and more time browsing online shops instead. So today I found some earrings by Eclectic Eccentricity which appealed to my inner geek child. If only they made these when I was a budding dinosaur geek, it would have made me a lot cooler!

Head over to John Greed jewellery if you fancy indulging your inner geek!

Oooh Versace ;) :Versace’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection

So first proper post of the year. I guess I’ve been a bit lazy and am still in a bit of a post Christmas/New Year haze and in total denial that all the festive merriment and jolliness has come to an end for another year. Sad times. I’ve also decided that because of various changes […]

Day 28/30: lil kunj’s lapse of self control

Today I experienced a slight lapse of self-control during some online window-shopping. So basically window-shopping ended up turning into proper spending money type shopping. I’m such a cheapo at times and am totally in LOVE with sale shopping, you get so much more for your money. Why buy one dress when you can buy four […]

Day 26/30: lil kunj’s boxing day outfit

Phew, I’m regaining some order with my posts, so from this post onwards everything is back to normal :)

This one is going to be a quickie as I need to snooze. I haven’t done an outfit post in almost a year, so I thought maybe it’s time to change that, even though I felt as though I was looking tired! This is what I wore today to Boxing day dinner at my sister’s house.
