Rainy Day

this was probably our most truncated shoot till date, thanks to the fact that it started raining halfway through! i was glad of my new old trench, a brilliant find from brighton for only £5! i had been looking for a classic trench for a very long time and i even used to have one

Big Beach Bums

on saturday i went to brighton for big beach bums, a blogger meetup, as i mentioned in my last post. much fun was had that day by us all and i hope we can do it again sometime in the future!

Brighton Rock

yesterday, i travelled to brighton for bigbeachbums, a blogger meetup oganized by kirsty wherein we went thifting in brighton’s vintage heaven and had a lovely time! it’s a pity more people could not make it but it was great meeting claire and rebecca and nadia, and ofcourse kirsty! i thrifted a gem of a trench

Shady Way

This outfit consists of two sorely neglected items in my wardrobe which have been sitting there since last summer when i bought them. i fell in love with the idea of crop tops last year but it wasn’t until now that i actually have worn one! again, most people who deal out ‘fashion advice’ would

Sailor Girl

this outfit is really built around the dress, it has such a sailor girl vibe to it! us fatties are often told to avoid stripes but i personally have never cared for such fashion ‘rules’, so yay! fat girl in stripes points to meee 😀 i should really have worn red lippy with it but

Cold Spring

i was expecting the day to be a warm, sunny one but it turned out to be foggy and grey! i was most inappropriately dressed for it. this dress makes me so happy though! when i was 10 i had a dress in a similar colourway which i loved the shit out of. it was

I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

Using fashion as a way of ‘writing back’ sartorially, so to speak, is one of the things I love most about dressing up. For instance, today I felt like a student at Cambridge in the 40s. Being an Indian woman, I don’t believe this could have been historically likely, but dressing like I could have,

Outfit: Stories from my childhood

i don’t remember if i have mentioned this before but one of my biggest inspirations is children’s book illustrations from the victorians/edwardians to the 40s, sometimes the 60s. studying children’s literature in an academic context as i have been doing means revisiting a lot of the books i read as a child. and so the

The Time-Travellers’ Orphan Lovechild

Or my Valentine’s day outfit. i decided to steer away from the usual cliches of red and pink and stick to something that i love. enter my vintage rothschild coat. now from what google tells me, rothschild used to (and still) always make coats for children. i can occasionally find one on etsy in a

PlusLondon: What I wore

on sunday morning, the boy and i hit the parks at cambridge (where i ran away to) where we shot pictures of my outfit from the day before. i was too shy on saturday to ask anyone to take pictures of my outfit, so the next day it was! i switched the brogues-that-killed-my-feet for my

PlusLondon: Daytrip!

on saturday i established myself as the worst fashion blogger in the history of fashion blogging at pluslondon when i essentially ran away from the evening party in favour of warm showers and footrubs, among other things. i had an amazing time during the day, though, and i only wish i wasn’t too tired to make it till the evening!
